United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: New Clause 4 - Objectives and general functions (29 Sep 2020)

Shailesh Vara: As we go through the process of leaving the European Union, this Parliament will take no powers away from the Scottish Parliament.

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: New Clause 4 - Objectives and general functions (29 Sep 2020)

Shailesh Vara: Does the Minister agree that those who object to the clauses he has just mentioned should bear in mind the language that has been used by the EU in recent weeks in terms of what it interprets the Northern Ireland protocol to mean? It has denied the existence, as it is written on the face of the Northern Ireland protocol, of matters such as the internal market, unfettered trade and so on. So...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 11 - Modifications in connection with the Northern Ireland Protocol (21 Sep 2020)

Shailesh Vara: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr Carmichael). I shall speak to clauses 40 to 45. Let us be clear from the start: the Bill protects and strengthens the United Kingdom, and it safeguards peace in Northern Ireland. There is nothing in it that undermines the Belfast/Good Friday agreement, nor is there any possibility of a hard border between Northern...

Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Apr 2020)

Shailesh Vara: May I join in the congratulations to the Prime Minister and Carrie Symonds on the birth of their son? I was recently speaking with a lady who, very sadly, lost her husband in hospital to covid-19. She spoke of the fantastic care given to her husband by the NHS staff, but she also spoke of the incredible support she and her family received from those same NHS workers. Will my right hon....

Defence: Red Arrows (3 Feb 2020)

Shailesh Vara: I am most grateful to the Minister for those comments. We in North West Cambridgeshire firmly believe that RAF Wittering would be the ideal new home for the Red Arrows.

Business of the House (30 Jan 2020)

Shailesh Vara: As we leave the EU, may we have a debate on products made in the UK that up to now have had restrictions on them? I am proud that the village of Stilton is in my constituency, but despite a local historian finding evidence that Stilton cheese was originally made in the village, EU rules and bureaucracy have prevented the cheese from being made locally.
