Economy and Jobs (29 Jun 2017)

Anna Soubry: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that, because of Conservative policies, some 4 million people in this country who are at the lower end of the wage scale no longer pay any tax at all? This is the party that reduces taxes for the less well-off.

Points of Order (29 Jun 2017)

Anna Soubry: Women don’t have to wear a tie.

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Anna Soubry: Does the hon. Lady not agree that it is absolutely imperative in the wake of this terrible tragedy that we wait to establish the facts? One fact that we know is that the local authority had almost a quarter of a billion pounds in reserves, which is a good indication that it was not about scrimping and scraping. There may well have been other serious failures, but we await the full public...

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Anna Soubry: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Anna Soubry: I echo the comments made by my hon. Friend the Member for South West Wiltshire (Dr Murrison): I have a lot of respect for most of what the hon. Lady says. However, does she agree that no one side in this place has an exclusive hold on the moral things that guide us? All of us come into this place to make life better for all our constituents. The eradication of poverty runs deep to the roots...

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Anna Soubry: Will my right hon. Friend confirm that the way we now operate police officers means that the old days of a police officer being an accredited firearms officer have completely changed? Now we effectively have squads of crack officers, who are properly trained in all aspects of serious policing, and who, frankly, do a far better job than we have seen for many a long year.

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Anna Soubry: My right hon. Friend will know that there is much concern on both sides of the House about the situation pertaining to women who live in Northern Ireland who seek terminations. They cannot get them in Northern Ireland—it is a devolved matter—and come over to England for them, but find themselves being charged by the NHS. While that is being resolved, will she give an undertaking...

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Anna Soubry: Will the right hon. Lady give way? Does she want to have a debate?

Brexit and Foreign Affairs (26 Jun 2017)

Anna Soubry: It is a great honour and pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Wolverhampton South East (Mr McFadden). I agree with much of what he said and, indeed, with the excellent speech from my right hon. Friend the Member for Preseli Pembrokeshire (Stephen Crabb). As ever, I also endorse much of what was said by the right hon. Member for Leeds Central (Hilary Benn). People right across this...

Northern Ireland (26 Jun 2017)

Anna Soubry: I welcome this agreement, but does the First Secretary of State agree that the injustice—because that is what it is—of women from Northern Ireland who seek terminations being charged to have them on the mainland by the NHS is nothing at all to do with this agreement? It is an entirely separate matter. To that end, does he agree that the Government should consider this matter,...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (21 Jun 2017)

Anna Soubry: I am very grateful to my right hon. and learned Friend for giving way. I join him in congratulating all the medical staff in Nottingham, essentially for putting him back together again and making sure that his health is even better than it was before, as we can see in all the rigor of his arguments. May I say how much I agree with everything that he says? Does he agree that one of the great...

Legislating for Uk Withdrawal from the EU (30 Mar 2017)

Anna Soubry: May I commend the Secretary of State for his statement and assure him that I always listen very carefully to what he says? I heard him explain on the radio this morning that what I thought was an absolute guarantee—that the deal would, in his words, deliver the “exact same benefits” on trade and customs—is now apparently an aim, but I am sure he will be true to that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: National Road Safety Targets (30 Mar 2017)

Anna Soubry: Two people died in November on the A52 in Bramcote, a suburban part of my constituency. There was another accident just a few weeks ago. In both of those cases, and after many complaints from residents for many years, there is clearly a real problem with people racing at very high speeds. Would the Minister be so good as to meet my constituent Tony Smith, who organised a petition, presented...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (30 Mar 2017)

Anna Soubry: Well, the people of Broxtowe are looking forward to HS2 coming to Toton Sidings, where we will have the east midlands hub, which will bring considerable benefit. May I thank the Minister for his visit to Trowell, for his interest and for the conversations with the Secretary of State, because in Trowell there is opposition, not necessarily to the route—although there is some...

Article 50 (29 Mar 2017)

Anna Soubry: The Prime Minister has made it very clear that immigration is her No. 1 priority, and that as a result we cannot accept the free movement of people and therefore we cannot remain a member of the single market. But that may change in the next two years. Who knows what might happen? The EU may move away from that principle of the free movement of people. In view of that, could the Prime...

Business of the House (23 Mar 2017)

Anna Soubry: We are urged to follow business as usual, which is difficult given what happened yesterday, not because any of us is affected by terrorism but simply because we are so horrified and saddened by those events and the terrible deaths and injuries. We wish everyone well, and our thoughts are with those who have suffered as a result of these terrible murders. I will try to engage in business as...

Advisory Committee on Business Appointments/Ministerial Code (20 Mar 2017)

Anna Soubry: I gently say to the hon. Member for Denton and Reddish (Andrew Gwynne) that it has never been suggested that, during the five or six weeks when he was in Copeland as the Labour party’s campaign organiser, he abandoned or did anything wrong by his constituents. Members of all parties on both sides of the House work extremely hard, especially when they have the ultimate second job as a...

Class 4 National Insurance Contributions (15 Mar 2017)

Anna Soubry: I commend the Chancellor for his statement. As somebody who was self-employed for many years, I know that the current system undoubtedly needs reform, in terms of contributions and benefits, so I look forward to Matthew Taylor’s report. Given that so many of the self-employed are sole traders and micro business owners, may I urge the Chancellor to look at the great work that Angela...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (14 Mar 2017)

Anna Soubry: Will the hon. Lady agree to work with me and other colleagues in examining whether it is either right or lawful for local authorities to impose the apprenticeship levy on all the schools in our constituencies?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Power to notify withdrawal from the EU (13 Mar 2017)

Anna Soubry: I am grateful for the opportunity to make myself clear. I said that if we do not get a deal, the matter should come back to Parliament and we should consider all options, given the circumstances that we would find ourselves in. It may well—[Hon. Members: “Ah!”] I am so sorry; I thought we lived in a democracy, but I have obviously got that completely wrong. It is hard to see...
