Assisted Dying Law — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (23 Jan 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: What is so interesting about this issue is that I drew entirely the opposite conclusion to what my right hon. Friend the Member for South Holland and The Deepings (Sir John Hayes) said in his intervention. The conclusion that I drew was how uncertain this situation makes it for anyone put in this position, and how having to wait for a decision to be made at a time of great stress and misery...

Assisted Dying Law — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (23 Jan 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: I congratulate the hon. Member for Edinburgh West (Christine Jardine) on what she said and the way in which she has framed the debate. There is no doubt that opinion is moving. I myself have changed my mind completely since I arrived in this place 33 years ago. My wife is a senior an NHS GP of some 40 years standing and, after many years of opposition, she has also changed her mind. Public...

Assisted Dying Law — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (23 Jan 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: I thank my hon. Friend and I hope we will hear much more from her. She expresses the dilemma on both sides of the argument extremely well. For the first time in 33 years I have drawn a place in the private Members’ ballot, although somewhat low down, so I am unlikely to trouble the scorers much. I am considering, and am talking to constituents about, the possibility of promoting a Bill...

Middle East: Security (7 Jan 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: My right hon. Friend is clearly absolutely right to focus, laser-like, on defending British personnel and interests, but can he assure the House that Britain is working closely with all our allies in Europe and the region, as well as in the US, to finish the job of defeating ISIL and to de-escalate tensions rather than see them spiral out of control, using all the available opportunities...

Leaving the EU: Integrated Foreign Policy (30 Oct 2019)

Andrew Mitchell: My hon. Friend and I have a difference of opinion on this matter. Let me be very clear: no one who has studied these things closely thinks that the Canadian and Australian model that he describes is superior to the British model. I can reassure him on this point. When David Cameron set up the National Security Council in 2010, he did so directly to address the point that my hon. Friend makes....

Leaving the EU: Integrated Foreign Policy (30 Oct 2019)

Andrew Mitchell: What my hon. Friend is saying about strategy is very good, but the National Security Council tends, to a very large extent, to be the creature of the Prime Minister. All I can tell him is that, when David Cameron was Prime Minister, the point that he makes about strategy was understood, and perhaps pursued more than it is today.

Leaving the EU: Integrated Foreign Policy (30 Oct 2019)

Andrew Mitchell: My hon. Friend makes a very good point about the BBC World Service. In fact, when I was Secretary of State, I increased by nine times the amount of money spent on the BBC World Service Trust. On the OECD DAC, if we make a promise to the poorest people in the world—Archbishop Tutu described that as a sacred thing—we should stick to it. The promise was 0.7%, and I am very proud that a...
