Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Anna Soubry: I am proud to say that for as long as I can remember—probably since after it was first passed—I have been a proud supporter of the 1967 Act. I remember in the ’70s and ’80s marching many a mile in defence of the ’67 Act, and my views have not changed. The reason why I came to the conclusion that it was one of the greatest pieces of legislation ever passed in this...

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Anna Soubry: I will not take any interventions because Mr Speaker has been quite firm with me, and I am keen to curry favour with him—it would make a change. There is an important point to make. Nobody happily, willingly skips into a clinic to terminate a pregnancy. Invariably, they do so after a heartrending, thoughtful process, often with a partner, a boyfriend or even their own parents. We must...

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Anna Soubry: The hon. Gentleman is making a powerful speech and I agree with much of what he says. Does he agree that, especially in relation to the comment made by my hon. Friend the Member for North Antrim (Ian Paisley), it is important not to forget that this is actually about the right of a woman to choose? It is not confined merely to those who have foetal abnormalities or who have been raped or in...

Personal Independence Payments (4 Jun 2018)

Anna Soubry: As the Secretary of State knows, I have written to her about a number of complaints that I have received from constituents about PIP. While it may not be completely on point with the question asked by the hon. Member for Oldham East and Saddleworth (Debbie Abrahams), I would respectfully say to the Secretary of State that my concern is not about PIP, which is a very good benefit, but about...

Anna Soubry: rose—

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: Will the hon. Gentleman confirm that five GP surgeries in Broxtowe have been rated outstanding, and that we yet again have a 2% increase in CCG spending? Why is he always talking down the NHS?

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: Would the hon. Gentleman like to speak to Nottingham City Council, which is run by Labour? It has repeatedly refused to unblock beds at NUHT, unlike Conservative-run Nottinghamshire County Council, which always ensures that it has social care available so that there is no bed-blocking in Nottinghamshire. The problem is Labour in the city—

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: rose—

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. Could the record please record that indeed the leader of Nottingham City Council does not run NUHT, but he is responsible for social care in the city? That was the point I was making.

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: I am happy to take that up. My understanding is that Nottinghamshire County Council is looking responsibly at the provision of—[Interruption.] Well, the hon. Gentleman invites me to give him information; I am trying to assist him. In my constituency, the county council is making sure that the money that it spends on social care goes to the very many care homes in my constituency that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Points of Order (23 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. I am sorry not to have given you notice of this, but it flows so naturally from what was said by my right hon. Friend; sorry, by my hon. Friend.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Points of Order (23 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: No doubt in time. Mr Speaker, it has come to my attention that some constituents are unable to email me. I believe this is a common problem from which all hon. Members are suffering. Obviously, we will not know because the emails do not even get into the spam filters. For some peculiar reason, which I will not trouble you with, I found out that one constituent—she had a very serious...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Self-employed (23 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what recent progress the Government has made on implementation of the recommendations Julie Deane MBE's Self Employment Review; and if he will make a statement.

Leaving the Eu: Customs (16 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: But this motion is the ultimate procedural motion. Why have the Opposition not done their job and tabled a motion about the customs union or custom arrangement instead of this— I have to say it—Mickey Mouse motion that does not deserve any support?

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Information Orders (9 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: Will the Minister give way?

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Information Orders (9 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: I thank my hon. Friend for that information, but it was mainly complete news to me, as I suspect it was to my right hon. Friend the Member for Hemel Hempstead too. We have a really serious problem here. I just cannot underestimate the amount of concern among small businesses. Medium-sized businesses with more than 250 employees have the benefit of a team of people, but this is a real crisis...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Guidance about how to seek redress against media organisations (9 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: The right hon. Gentleman is making a powerful case, and he is right about morality and the promises made, most importantly, to victims. I am struggling to support him, however, because while those are powerful arguments, I am actually more interested in the outcome. Is there a genuine purpose that can be achieved other than—and it is a strong argument—keeping a promise to victims?...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Guidance about how to seek redress against media organisations (9 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: I am grateful to the Secretary of State for giving way; it is very generous of him. Some years ago, I put forward a private Member’s Bill calling for anyone who was accused to keep their anonymity until they were charged. It is all there—it is effectively good to go. I too would very much like to meet the Secretary of State, because this is the right thing to do. People should not...

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: It should be put on the record that many of us who were elected in 2010, with the change of government, noticed that under the previous Government there had also been big problems in the Home Office in getting on and doing the right thing in relation to all manner of things—visas, applications and so on. This was nothing new under the Conservative Government.
