Stephen Hammond: I apologise to the Front-Bench spokespeople that I have to leave the Chamber to deal with a statutory instrument in a few minutes. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Rossendale and Darwen (Jake Berry). He was right in his exposition to point out that we already trade with the Commonwealth. I have some brief remarks on how we can facilitate greater trade within the Commonwealth to...

London Stock Exchange (21 Feb 2017)

Friend the Member for Stone (Sir William Cash) made this key...

Informal European Council: Parliamentary oversight of negotiations (6 Feb 2017)

Stephen Hammond: The hon. Lady refers to guaranteeing the rights of EU citizens, and my hon. Friend the Member for North East Somerset (Mr Rees-Mogg), who is not in his place, stated the legal position. The Government could make that guarantee tonight, saying that my hon.

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: [2nd day] (1 Feb 2017)

Stephen Hammond: Parliament, since its beginning, has been the place where elected Britons debate and make the decisions that affect our country’s future, so it is only right that tonight this House will vote to trigger article 50.

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: [2nd day] (1 Feb 2017)

Stephen Hammond: I do not know if my hon. Friend heard me, but I said that I would certainly be respecting the result of the referendum.

Surely, one of the lessons that we can learn...

Article 50 (24 Jan 2017)

Stephen Hammond: You will recall last week, Mr Speaker, my right hon. Friend extolling the fact that he liked to please his boss. He also said earlier what a wonderful speech she made last week.

New Partnership with the EU (17 Jan 2017)

Stephen Hammond: I believe that the Prime Minister’s plan is a pragmatic one setting out our ambition to continue to attract the best talent, to have access to the single market and to ensure a phased implementation.
