EU Exit Negotiations (13 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Well, it is all very interesting. As we know, the Government have now decided to table an amendment to put the Brexit leaving date into law, even though that has not been to the Cabinet and has not been subject to the usual write-around. Will the Secretary of State help us with this? He has told us about this new piece of legislation that will come forward and that we will all be able vote on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (13 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Will my right hon. Friend join me in congratulating Broxtowe citizens advice bureau, which I met on Thursday? Universal credit is being rolled out for us next year, and the CAB is already putting together all the relevant agencies to make sure that we are ready. Will my right hon. Friend also have a look at whether, for a very small amount, my CAB could have one person to deal with all the...

Counter-Daesh Update (7 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I commend the Foreign Secretary on his statement. Will he now give us an undertaking that he will concentrate in future on the very important matters within his brief as Foreign Secretary? To that end, will he give an undertaking to support the Prime Minister in her efforts—in relation to the Florence speech, for example—and ensure that his own ambitions are put secondary to the...

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Analysis (7 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Unlike the Minister, I attended the entire debate. I have gone back on my phone to look at the words of the Under-Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, my hon. Friend the Member for Worcester (Mr Walker), and I make it absolutely clear—the Hansard record of the debate is absolutely clear—that the nuts and bolts of the debate were about redaction. The argument that...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (7 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Yesterday afternoon, we had an excellent debate in this Chamber about the benefits of European economic area and European Free Trade Association membership, with people on both sides of the Chamber supporting our continuing membership. I do not expect my right hon. Friend to pass comment on his own views on this matter, but I do know he will always champion the best interests of British...

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I thank the hon. Gentleman, who is my friend, for giving way. Is he not extremely worried—even though he is a great optimist, as we have heard—about the real possibility of not getting a deal, especially in relation to customs? Northern Ireland needs a proper deal on customs, and there is every chance that we will not get it. That eventuality would be a really serious problem for...

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: rose—

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I am extremely grateful. May I be clear about the wise words from my hon. Friend? Setting aside the withdrawal Bill—he makes a good point about the Bill, and I think we all agree on it—if there were some other mechanism by which it was guaranteed that this place had a say on our membership of the EEA, is he saying we should have a vote? We could take it away from the withdrawal...

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: It is a great pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Ilford South (Mike Gapes). I congratulate the hon. Member for Aberavon (Stephen Kinnock) on securing this debate. I was pleased to support him, when, along with the hon. Member for Lewisham East (Heidi Alexander), we went to the Backbench Business Committee to seek this debate. We are grateful that, finally, we have a debate on one of...

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I must accept my hon. Friend’s words, as I am not aware of that quote. If he were to ask me what Margaret Thatcher would have said about the bureaucracy of the European Union and the fact that we should not join the euro, I am sure that we would all be in agreement, but goodness me, by making our decision in June 2016, have we not thrown away the baby with the bathwater? I agree with...

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Will my hon. Friend give way?

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I am surprised there was a question mark after that bit.

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Don’t worry about the right hon. bit. I put these words to my hon. Friend: “the great advantage of the EFTA model is that it is completely independent of the EU yet follows the decisions of the European Court of Justice for the most part, although not always—that is important. I am glad that my hon. Friend the Member for Chelmsford (Vicky Ford) noticed that, because not...

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I gently remind my hon. Friend that he spoke those words in July 2017, long after the referendum. He said them only a few months ago.

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.
