Paradise Papers: Points of Order (6 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. Would it be in order for Members of this place to see a copy of the letter to compare it with Hansard? Although I did not sit in for the entire debate, I sat in for 90% of it, and I do not recollect any Minister saying that there were not 58 papers or that it would take them a long time to collate them in any event. It would help us to compare...

Paradise Papers (6 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Can my right hon. Friend confirm that this country is now leading the world on tackling tax avoidance? How does the action of consecutive Conservative Chancellors compare with the non-action of consecutive Labour Chancellors?

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (1 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I am grateful for the Minister’s gracious response. Will he help the House to understand something? If the Government will not vote against the motion, will they commit at the Dispatch Box that they will therefore hand over the documents? If they will not hand over the documents, they must vote against the motion. What is it to be? Come on.

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (1 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I am grateful to give my hon. Friend an extra minute and say, “Hear, hear!” to everything he says.

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (1 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Does my hon. Friend not accept that it is becoming clear that a number of promises made to people who voted leave will not be kept and that, in fact, the opposite is happening? Those people will not get £350 million a week for the NHS; they will not see the scrapping of all the regulations and so on, because they will be embodied in British law; they will not see a particular reduction...

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (1 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. Is it in order for the Government to disclose to members of the media what they plan to do in relation to the documents we are discussing? I have just seen a tweet from the rather excellent political correspondent from The Sun newspaper, who says that he understands that the Government will release the documents, albeit heavily redacted.

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (1 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I rise to support the motion. I hope that the motion is put to the vote and I shall be walking through the Lobby in favour of it. If the Minister and the Government are not prepared to be bound by the terms of the motion, I gently say to them that we are not messing about here any more. This is grown-up, serious stuff. This is no longer a debate on the fringes of politics, where people can...

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (1 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I will take the extra minute.

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (1 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I agree. Let us be clear: this debate has always crossed the political divide. Many in the Labour party supported leave and many Conservatives supported remain. This transcends the normal political divide. I agree very much with the hon. Lady. Let me explain why it is so important that we know what is in these documents. I am getting a bit of a feeling here. I rather take the view that there...

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (1 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I absolutely agree. Other hon. Members have talked about the impact that they fear this will have on their constituents and on their part of our great country, and they are right to do so. How can local authorities, businesses and chambers of commerce—and all the other people who create our country’s great economy and the jobs and prosperity that we have now and will need in the...

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (1 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: That is absolute nonsense, if I may say so to my right hon. Friend. I hope that he might support that amendment, because at its heart is what he has told the British people he believes in. It is about taking back control in this Parliament, not relying on arguments from the right hon. Gentleman for the 19th century, who actually suggested that this Parliament might be bound by a decision...

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (1 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I am very grateful to the Minister for his excellent speech. He has told us that the Government will not seek to vote against the motion. On that basis, the motion will be passed. In that event, what will the Government then do?

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (1 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Further to that point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker.

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (1 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Madam Deputy Speaker, forgive me. The point of order, which was raised and which I raise again, is whether or not this motion, in the view of the Chair, is a binding motion. That is the question.

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (1 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (1 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I agree with the right hon. and learned Gentleman and the Opposition that these impact assessments should be disclosed—they can be redacted—but we definitely disagree about the Labour party’s position. We must be very clear: it started off with the Leader of the Opposition saying article 50 should be triggered on the day after the referendum, and it has flip-flopped around...

Opposition Day - [4TH Allotted Day]: Armed Forces Pay (1 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Does my hon. Friend agree that the reasons why some fall out of our armed forces are hugely complex? There are all sorts of different reasons. It could be accommodation. It could be that they often find it difficult with their spouses, who want employment and some sort of family life. In an increasingly modern world, that is often thought not to be compatible with military service. There is a...

Opposition Day - [4TH Allotted Day]: Armed Forces Pay (1 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I represent Chetwynd barracks and am very proud of the great service of the Royal Engineers there, and I am a former Minister in the Ministry of Defence, with responsibility for welfare. I have to say that pay was not, and is not, on the list of concerns of those constituents who serve so well in our armed forces. Accommodation is another matter, but it is not about pay. With great respect to...

Olympic Sports/GCSE PE (1 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I should say for the record that I am a lifelong supporter of Notts County; I watch Nottingham Forest as well; and I enjoy watching Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club. I wanted to put that on the record, but I am very serious about this issue. Does the Minister agree that in the modern world, as Mr Baldwin points out to me, PE teachers are of course perfectly capable, through their knowledge...

Olympic Sports/GCSE PE (1 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I beg to move, That this House has considered Olympic sports and accepted GCSE PE activities. This is an important matter, especially to all those students and their parents who find themselves in what I would describe as a deeply unfair situation, if I may be so bold. The mother of my constituent Kyle Ross-Waddell, who is here today with his parents, contacted me in the summer about the...
