NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Paul Farrelly: There are also questions about NHS leadership. As the Minister is aware, Staffordshire is under great pressure. The Secretary of State received reports into the closure, with lack of consultation, of community hospitals in our area on 18 October, which slated two local CCGs. Yet a week later the NHS appointed the chief operating officer of those two CCGs to oversee four more in...

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Paul Farrelly: I want to talk about the situation at my local hospital, the Royal Stoke University Hospital. Winter crises there are hardly new, but they have escalated year on year, and our hospital features luridly in the national press each winter. It is often the most affected, and it is no coincidence that its funding deficit is England’s worst. This winter, however, is the first time that Royal...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Paul Farrelly: I have been trawling back through my more recent memory banks. If I am not mistaken, before the Minister was taken to task and dismissed the new clause as a constitutional novelty, which is no argument, he was rather sympathetic to its content, so I was assuming that he might agree with it because it is, after all, in agreement with what the Prime Minister said.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Paul Farrelly: Will my hon. Friend give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Paul Farrelly: I am certainly not a lawyer. Would my hon. Friend care to explain to the House why she felt unable to support amendment 7 last week? Was it perhaps because, as well as not trusting the EU, she does not trust this House?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Paul Farrelly: rose—

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Paul Farrelly: It is indeed on this point. Some of the Minister’s right hon. and hon.—and courageous—Friends from last week have, in good faith, signed amendment 400 this evening. Given that he is refusing to guarantee that the Government will stick to the letter and the spirit of amendment 7, they might feel that they are being led up the garden path.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Paul Farrelly: During the Minister’s course through the amendments, has he perhaps noticed new clause 54, which was tabled by the right hon. and learned Member for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke) following the Prime Minister’s Florence speech? If he has noticed it, what does he think of it?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Paul Farrelly: Does my hon. Friend agree that services are so important to our economy that if we want to negotiate something that has not been negotiated before, it is likely to take far longer than two years?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Paul Farrelly: I pay tribute to my hon. Friend for his work in drafting and moving all these new clauses. Does he remember that when the Prime Minister visited India, the No. 1 topic on the Indians’ agenda was relaxing our immigration rules? How does that square with the Prime Minister’s immigration targets and her ambitions on Brexit?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Paul Farrelly: A red, white and blue Brexit.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Paul Farrelly: Is not the advantage of the right hon. and learned Gentleman’s very helpful amendment that it would give certainty? It would nail down, in black and white, what we have agreed and would place a legal responsibility on the Government. We would then avoid a situation whereby what people think has been agreed simply becomes a statement of intent within a matter of hours and days.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Paul Farrelly: Has my right hon. Friend given any thought to the consequences of the possibility, under the Government’s proposed procedure, of this House voting in favour but the other place voting against the motion?

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Dec 2017)

Paul Farrelly: Presuming that the Government do finally make progress at some stage and we leave the single market, will the Secretary of State outline to the House what sort of agreement he expects to reach on UK access to the European market for services?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Date of exit from the European Union (14 Nov 2017)

Paul Farrelly: I welcome the amendment tabled by the right hon. and learned Gentleman that would remove the Alice “Through the Looking-Glass” absurdity of there being different exit days for different purposes. I was an early signatory to all his amendments because they are eminently sensible. The right hon. and learned Member for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke) described entertainingly the reasons for...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Date of exit from the European Union (14 Nov 2017)

Paul Farrelly: I wanted to make this intervention on my right hon. Friend the Member for Birkenhead (Frank Field), but he would not take it. I commend the speech of my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield Central (Paul Blomfield), and I seek his opinion on new clause 49. The new clause is linked to other new clauses, but if it is agreed there is no guarantee that the other new clauses will be agreed....
