Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Leaving the EU: No Deal (10 Apr 2019)

Nigel Dodds: Of course everybody wants to get a deal that can get through this House of Commons. I remind the Secretary of State that she, along with us and Members from her own party, voted for an amendment saying that the backstop had to be replaced with alternative arrangements. Will she confirm that she still stands by that, and will she encourage her right hon. Friend the Prime Minister to adopt that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Leaving the EU: No Deal (10 Apr 2019)

Nigel Dodds: I am grateful to the Secretary of State for confirming on the record in the House today that she agrees that changes do need to be made to the backstop—it is important to recognise that. With regard to a no-deal outcome, she will have heard the Irish Taoiseach, and indeed Michel Barnier, say that in the event of a no deal there will not be any hard border on the island of Ireland and that...

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Votes) (1 Apr 2019)

Nigel Dodds: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Just to remind the House, is it not the case that the only proposition that has ever had a majority in this House is the Brady amendment? That is a fact. Whatever Members may think or say, that is the proposition that has had a majority in this House and that could allow the withdrawal agreement to go through. With Chancellor Merkel due to visit the Irish...

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

Nigel Dodds: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. May I urge the Prime Minister now to look seriously at what the right hon. Member for Esher and Walton (Dominic Raab) said earlier about the backstop? She knows that that remains the problem. She knows that Michel Barnier and Leo Varadkar have said this week that in a no-deal scenario, there will be no hard border. Please, Prime Minister, even now, as the...

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

Nigel Dodds: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

Nigel Dodds: The Democratic Unionist party has never pretended that it represents the majority or everyone in Northern Ireland, but it represents more people than anybody else. The fact of the matter is that no party in this House that is in government in Scotland, Wales or here represents a majority. We have the same proportion of votes as the SNP in Scotland. Let us be very clear. As the hon. Gentleman...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Mar 2019)

Nigel Dodds: I am sure the Prime Minister will join me in welcoming the signing yesterday of the heads of terms—the agreement—on the Belfast city regional deal, the first city deal in Northern Ireland, which it is estimated will bring about 20,000 new jobs, £350 million of investment by the Government, and a lot of extra investment by local councils and the private sector. Will she confirm that she...

European Council (25 Mar 2019)

Nigel Dodds: On that last point, the Prime Minister and the House have known for some considerable time that 29 March was the target date, so why have appropriate preparations not been made? Why do we need another two weeks? What will happen in another two weeks that could not have happened up to now? This is a fundamental lack of preparation, and the Government are entirely responsible for that if it is...

Northern Ireland Assembly Election (21 Mar 2019)

Nigel Dodds: I thank the Secretary of State for the consultations that she has had with us on this matter. Of course, this is the right thing to do in the circumstances. Regrettable though it is, it is the only possible course at the present time. However, could I suggest that she does something a bit more radical to take the initiative a bit more? What about calling the Assembly together? What about...

Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Opinion (12 Mar 2019)

Nigel Dodds: I join others in commending the Attorney General, and I pay tribute to him for his dealings with us and for holding entirely to his word in delivering a totally objective and fair legal analysis and opinion on whatever came back. I pay tribute to him publicly, in addition to what I have said to him privately in that regard. In relation to reducing the risk of being held in the backstop by the...

Exiting the European Union (11 Mar 2019)

Nigel Dodds: The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster has clearly come to the House tonight with a partial statement. He has outlined two documents that the Government are going to publish but, as he has told the House, the negotiations are still under way. Can he give us an indication of when that element of these extremely important negotiations is likely to be concluded, and when the House is likely to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Devolved Government (6 Mar 2019)

Nigel Dodds: The Secretary of State knows, and the whole House knows, that there was violence on the part of dissident republicans even when we had devolution. However, given yesterday’s improvised explosive devices and the link to dissident republicans, can she tell the House whether there is any prospect of the security threat level being raised, and does she have any more information about the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Devolved Government (6 Mar 2019)

Nigel Dodds: I thank the Secretary of State for that information, but she will understand the concern that is out there about those devices being sent through the post. May I urge her to ensure that the lack of devolution does not hamper the introduction of any powers or resources that the Chief Constable may need in Northern Ireland—or, indeed, here on the mainland—for the purpose of combating such a...

Northern Ireland Budget (Anticipation and Adjustments) (No. 2) Bill (5 Mar 2019)

Nigel Dodds: On the issue of health transformation, the permanent secretary at the Department of Health has made it clear that £100 million went into health transformation funding last year and another £100 million will go in this year as a direct result of confidence and supply money. He has welcomed this greatly, because it gives us an opportunity to roll out multidisciplinary teams and other things...
