Salisbury Incident: Further Update (14 Mar 2018)

Nicholas Soames: I welcome the decision of the Government to refer the patiently and carefully acquired evidence of this grotesque attack to the OPCW. Is it the Prime Minister’s intention that its findings should be referred to the Russians, the United Nations and ourselves? Will she consider, in the light of those findings, going further on unexplained wealth orders and other financial sanctions...

Diplomatic Service and Resources — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Mar 2018)

Nicholas Soames: Will the Minister give way?

Diplomatic Service and Resources — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Mar 2018)

Nicholas Soames: The hon. Lady is making an impressive speech, but may I disagree with her on one tiny point? Although it is important that we do not think that we are what we were, we do have this absolutely wonderful architecture and a brilliant inheritance of vast experience all over the world, in good times and bad times. Our values and everything we stand for are built on rock-firm footings. It is now...

Diplomatic Service and Resources — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Mar 2018)

Nicholas Soames: I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Newbury (Richard Benyon) on his excellent speech in opening this important and serious debate. I will not respond to what the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon)—he is also my friend—said, other than to remind him of famous lines written in worse days: “To hell with the future and God bless the past, and may God in...

Diplomatic Service and Resources — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Mar 2018)

Nicholas Soames: I completely agree with my right hon. Friend. He was a distinguished and successful Foreign Office Minister, and he has seen all these things in action. He is completely right: we will have to redouble all our efforts, call in all our chips, and work very hard to retain our influence and position on the world stage. That is an incontestable fact.

Diplomatic Service and Resources — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Mar 2018)

Nicholas Soames: I agree, and I would say further that we will have to ride every single horse in the park, not just the European horse. We no longer have a diplomatic network in the way that we used to, because our diplomatic network has been subordinated, in a perfectly sensible way, to working within the European Union. We will have to revitalise that, and indeed there is now a great rush to hire people or...

Diplomatic Service and Resources — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Mar 2018)

Nicholas Soames: I will continue if I may. These relationships with allies, friends and networks do not just drop into our lap; they require continuous and ceaseless effort, and the most serious diplomatic work. Take the example of the last few months. With our allies we continue to be engaged in an active diplomatic and other campaign to counter Islamist extremism. We have also once again entered an era of...

Diplomatic Service and Resources — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Mar 2018)

Nicholas Soames: I do not think that it is nearly serious enough for the kind of steps that the Government will need to take against Russia. Just to say a lot of dignitaries will not be sent to the World cup is nowhere near good enough. It is a pathetic response. We will need to do much better and be much tougher, so that it is understood across the full spectrum that the behaviour in question is something up...

Diplomatic Service and Resources — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Mar 2018)

Nicholas Soames: My hon. Friend has always been known for his natural exuberance. If he would pause for a second, he would hear the magisterial exposition that I am about to give of the British Council. Another balls-up by Bellingham. To pre-empt my hon. Friend’s over-excitement, we have a priceless asset in the British Council. I again urge the Foreign Office to accept its vital importance. It is...

Diplomatic Service and Resources — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Mar 2018)

Nicholas Soames: My right hon. Friend mentions Zimbabwe; I was there recently and I noticed that the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and DFID sit together in the same building. It is clear, when looking at it, what a remarkable success that is; they each act as a force multiplier to each other. It would be just as well if that was replicated the whole way across the foreign service.

Uk/EU Future Economic Partnership (5 Mar 2018)
