Uk Plans for Leaving the EU (9 Oct 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: Will my right hon. Friend simply point out to people complaining that the negotiations are going too slowly that after the referendum on 23 June last year the EU refused to negotiate until we had triggered article 50; that even when we had, it refused to discuss the long-term relationship it wanted with the UK; and that even after her emollient and conciliatory speech, it is still refusing...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: In the last Parliament, the Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee took evidence on this matter from the same academic who advised the Scottish Parliament, and he was very clear that the powers being reserved under these proposals were only ever notionally devolved, because they were of course reserved by virtue of our membership of the European Union. This is not a power...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: This Bill is, fundamentally, not a decision-making Bill; it is an enabling Bill—it is an administrative measure. I spent many years on the Opposition Benches—on the Front Bench and on the Back Benches—practising the professional outrage we saw practised very effectively in the Chamber last Thursday and, if I may so, just now by the hon. Member for Penistone and Stocksbridge...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: My right hon. and learned Friend sets out the common ground we should all be on. However, the debate was not assisted by Tony Blair, who was on the television yesterday speaking about how to deal with this issue. He said: “Paradoxically, we have to respect the referendum vote to change it.” There is an understandable suspicion among Conservative Members that some people have not...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: Absolutely right. The point is that we want that smooth transition; the only reason there is a possibility that there will not be one is the intransigence so far of the European Union. The paradox is that there are people who were very much in favour of Britain’s membership of the European Union who clearly think that the European Union will inflict the most ghastly cliff edge on our...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: Will my right hon. and learned Friend give way?

Exiting the European Union: European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: May I add my congratulations to my colleague on his appointment to the Front Bench? It is very well deserved. Is not the right way for the hon. Member for Stockton South (Dr Williams) to secure the rights of workers, and to secure the environmental protections that he wants, to vote for the EU (Withdrawal) Bill? If the Labour party succeeds in blocking the Bill, those protections will no...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Roads: Accidents (7 Sep 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what information his Department holds on the (a) number and (b) nature of road traffic incidents recorded at the junction of Harwich Road and the A120 east of Colchester and at Pellens Corner nearby over the last 12 months; and how many times the ambulance service has been required to attend those incidents.

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Sep 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: May I ask my right hon. Friend to confirm that it was Michel Barnier who described the idea of a transition period without a clear agreement at the end as a bridge to nowhere, so will he dismiss some of the advice that he has received on transition periods? May I also invite him to dismiss the idea that September will be the great progress point against which the Government should be tested?...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: A120: Roundabouts (18 Jul 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what the reasons are for the time taken to commence the construction of the new roundabout at the junction of Harwich Road and the A120 east of Colchester; and when that construction is planned to begin.

Euratom Membership — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: I commend the hon. Gentleman not just on obtaining the debate but on his constructive tone, but why should the case for staying in Euratom not apply to every other agency that we will leave when we leave the European Union? As we leave those other agencies and regulatory bodies, we will set up our own, under international standards. Why can that not also be done with Euratom? Who would want...

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: And Russian.

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: Will my right hon. Friend find a moment or two to talk about Euratom?

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: I remind my hon. Friend and the House that the reason it is a ports regulation is that when it was a directive it was blocked by the European Parliament. So undemocratic is the EU’s legislative system that the Commission can force it through as a regulation, so even the European Parliament cannot block it. What kind of democracy is that, and is it not a good thing that we are getting...

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: Could the Government make it clearer that we want an open trading relationship with our European partners and that it is up to the European Union to decide whether they want that or not? Will the Secretary of State also ask who is arguing for protectionist measures against an independent United Kingdom? I do not hear many voices in the EU arguing for that, and I think that that is just a fear...

Brexit and Foreign Affairs (26 Jun 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman give way?

Brexit and Foreign Affairs (26 Jun 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: It is realistic to imagine that we will not get a comprehensive trade agreement with the EU when we leave and that interim arrangements will persist under WTO rules, which may well be zero-tariff rules, but we would have to believe the EU was seriously insane if it wanted to ground all flights between the UK and the EU, if it refused to offer the products and standards arrangements it has...
