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

Anne Main: I am listening to the hon. Gentleman’s argument with great interest, because I was waiting for the “or”. He has just asserted what would happen if we did not have a good deal, Parliament rejected it and the negotiators were sent back, but then what? If it is felt that the best deal has been offered, what is his fall-back procedure? We would leave with no deal whatsoever.

Backbench Business: Rohingya Crisis — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (28 Nov 2017)

Anne Main: Does the hon. Lady share my concern that His Holiness the Pope made a speech in Burma today, yet still could not bring himself to mention the word “Rohingya”? It is not just our Government but the whole world that needs to do more.

Backbench Business: Rohingya Crisis — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (28 Nov 2017)

Anne Main: On our visit, we saw people with nothing, as I am sure other hon. Members did. There is no way they would have the documentation necessary. Even if there were some sort of rules about documentation, the majority of people will not fulfil those criteria.

Backbench Business: Rohingya Crisis — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (28 Nov 2017)

Anne Main: It is a privilege to follow the hon. Member for Tooting (Dr Allin-Khan). I, too, visited the camps, and like her I made that promise. It still feels as raw today as when I went there. I will make a few points in the short time I have. I agree with the Minister that this is not only a Muslim problem; we were told of Hindus who had been expelled because they are Rohingya. The very fact that...

Public Country-by-Country Reporting (22 Nov 2017)

Anne Main: Order. I ask the hon. Lady to bring her remarks to a close.

Public Country-by-Country Reporting (22 Nov 2017)

Anne Main: I remind Members that I will call the Front-Bench spokesman for the Scottish National party at 5.10 pm.

Public Country-by-Country Reporting (22 Nov 2017)

Anne Main: Before I call the next hon. Member, let me say that there are three Members who wish to speak, and I will begin calling the Front Benchers at 5.10 pm.

Hydraulic Fracturing: North East Derbyshire — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (22 Nov 2017)

Anne Main: I point out that the interventions are incredibly long—they are becoming mini-speeches. I ask that the hon. Member be given the courtesy of being able to continue his speech.

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Anne Main: I thank my right hon. Friend for building on the apprenticeships scheme that this Government have been championing. They are doing such a good job of getting young people into learning those skills through a different route.

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Anne Main: I understand the hon. Lady’s interpretation of the report and her concern about it, but in areas such as St Albans where the average house price is more than £500,000, young people were helped on to the housing ladder by the previous Chancellor, and the present Chancellor will be helping young people to save some more of their money and put it towards buying their homes. That will...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: EU Protocol on animal sentience (15 Nov 2017)

Anne Main: On a point of clarification, the hon. Lady said that she was not aware that we could not ban microbeads in plastics, but an independent report from the House of Commons Library warns that any attempt to impose a unilateral ban could break EU free trade laws because microbeads are in products. I think she will actually find that even though the Government wanted to ban them in July 2017, we...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: EU Protocol on animal sentience (15 Nov 2017)

Anne Main: Does the hon. Lady agree that, once we have left, we will be able to increase our animal welfare standards—for example, by stopping the live transportation of horses and other animals, which we are currently forbidden to do—

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: EU Protocol on animal sentience (15 Nov 2017)

Anne Main: The hon. Gentleman asks about badgers. I have actually been leading some of the campaigning against culling badgers. I hope that the hon. Lady agrees that we will have the ability to raise standards where we are currently forbidden to do so.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: EU Protocol on animal sentience (15 Nov 2017)

Anne Main: The hon. Lady is making a valid point, but some of the EU’s principles are lower than ours. For example, it will not allow us to ban microbeads. We are very concerned about plastics in the water, so I look forward to being able to enhance our waterways by being able to ban microplastics.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (15 Nov 2017)

Anne Main: I was delighted to hear that we may have a consensual approach. May I gently chide the hon. Gentleman, because the public are rather fed up with being told that they are too stupid to know what they are doing, which is rather what he is saying?
