Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 2018)

Emily Thornberry: May I join the Minister in paying tribute to Lord Carrington, who served his country with such distinction in both the forces and in government and whose decision to resign the office of Foreign Secretary will be remembered as an act of great principle and honour?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 2018)

Emily Thornberry: I thank the Minister for that answer, but who does he think he is kidding? Even Donald Trump can see that the Government are in turmoil, and he has not even got to Britain yet. May I ask the Minister once again the question I asked him at PMQs in December 2016, when he compared Labour’s shadow Cabinet to “Mutiny on the Bounty” remade by the “Carry On” team. By...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 2018)

Emily Thornberry: I thank the Minister for that answer on the Chequers free trade proposal, but I was hoping today that he would go beyond the theory and explain in practice how it works.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 2018)

Emily Thornberry: The Minister has, I believe, said something quite interesting, and I do hope that his Back Benchers are listening very carefully.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 2018)

Emily Thornberry: The Minister cannot answer these simple questions of detail because he cannot admit the truth. The truth is that the Chequers proposal is total delusion. The UK cannot set its own tariffs on goods and keep frictionless trade with the EU. The technology to do so does not exist.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 2018)

Emily Thornberry: Well, I have asked the Minister why China would accept such a one-way deal on services, and the answer is that it would not. It is simply another Chequers delusion—a Brexit dream with no grip on reality. There is an easy answer to this mess: an alternative that will offer all the benefits of the Chequers free trade area with no new technology, no cost and no delay; an alternative that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 2018)

Emily Thornberry: The Minister seems to argue that by leaving the EU the British people voted against a customs union, but that is the complete opposite of what he used to say. I take him back to 2011, when he said that a yes-no referendum would not give us that information. He said: “that sharp division between the status quo and quitting the EU does not reflect the breadth of views held in…the...
