European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Anna Soubry: As ever, my hon. and learned Friend is quite outstanding at the Dispatch Box, but I have to ask him this: what is the Government’s solution to ensuring that we have frictionless trade? What is the Government’s policy to deliver it?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Anna Soubry: I thank the right hon. and learned Gentleman for giving way. We need to be very clear about this. Something may have happened, but I heard the Prime Minister saying very clearly from the Dispatch Box that an amendment would be forthcoming, that it would largely incorporate much of the amendment that my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Beaconsfield (Mr Grieve) tabled yesterday,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Anna Soubry: Congratulations and well done, sir.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Anna Soubry: I have never written a speech before and then had it typed out, Mr Speaker, and now I do not know why I bothered: not only have you cut the time, but you can see how the debate has advanced. I am sorry but I am going to speak, as ever, frankly. This has got to stop; this is unseemly; this is the most important piece of legislation that this House has considered arguably since the second...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Points of Order (12 Jun 2018)

Anna Soubry: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. Do you share my concern that to my knowledge at least one hon. Member on these Benches will today and tomorrow not vote in accordance with their conscience because of threats to their personal safety, to members of their parliamentary staff and to members of their family? Do you take that as a very serious threat to the democracy of this place, and...

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Anna Soubry: So what’s the right hon. Gentleman going to do about it? That’s what I would ask him. What about the 724 women who came to this country to have an abortion? What are you going to do? Make them stay in Northern Ireland to have children they do not want? What’s your solution?

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...

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

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.
