European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Anna Soubry: I think that that is the unequivocal statement I am looking for. If it is, I am extremely grateful to the Minister for clearing that up. It is indeed a great Christmas present. It is obvious that the two main parties in this place remain deeply divided, just as the country does. The irony of the situation will not be lost on future generations as they read Hansard. We have a considerable...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Anna Soubry: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman. That is the sort of detail we need. We have to understand all the different arrangements that are there that will work and suit our country, and I beg right hon. and hon. Members to look at them. The solutions are there. We are not going to get a bespoke deal, but arrangements are there on the shelf. We can grasp them, sort out Brexit, move on and do the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Anna Soubry: I will undertake to send to my right hon. Friend a list of the various quotes from leading members of the leave campaign who told the British people, “There will be no change in our trading arrangements”, “We’ll do deals in a day and a half”, “We can be like Norway”, “We might want to be like Switzerland”, and so on and so forth. It was...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Anna Soubry: I wonder whether the Minister could be quite clear at the Dispatch Box and give an undertaking on behalf of the Government that now we have voted—as we did last week—for amendment 7, the Government will not at any stage now bring forward any measure that in any way undermines the vote of this House on amendment 7, and that Parliament will have a meaningful vote, as we voted for...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Anna Soubry: Yes, on that point.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Anna Soubry: Given the hon. Gentleman’s experience, has he, like me, talked to people about the detail of the EU-Canada comprehensive economic and trade agreement, as well as about what the Australians and the Indians—and many other countries that are apparently queuing up to do these great trade deals with us—want? At the core of any free trade agreement with such countries will be an...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Anna Soubry: Does the hon. Gentleman agree with my view that most people in this country do not understand the huge benefits of the customs union? Of course, a huge swathe of people have never had any experience of stuff being stopped in customs. I certainly remember those days because of my age. Has it been his experience that British businesses are in many ways even more concerned about the movement of...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Plain English summary of retained direct EU legislation (20 Dec 2017)

Anna Soubry: During last Wednesday’s debate, I specifically asked whether the Bill was first drafted before the June general election. My view—I do not know whether my right hon. and learned Friend shares it—is that this Bill was all about delivering a quick and hard Brexit, and the reason for these extraordinary powers is that they were needed by Ministers to execute that process in...

Harassment in Public Life (18 Dec 2017)

Anna Soubry: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for the support that you have given to some of us who in recent days have had particular death threats and abuse because of—as has been identified by both the shadow Home Secretary and the Home Secretary—newspaper comments. I am not going to go into them at length; others can talk about that. My question to the Home Secretary is quite specific. You, Mr...

European Council (18 Dec 2017)

Anna Soubry: I commend the Prime Minister for her success in the negotiations and the statement. I remind the Leader of the Opposition that the merits of a transition period were first advanced on this side of the House, notably by the Chancellor of the Exchequer. On that note, as a former Business Minister, may I say to the Prime Minister that what business really wants is certainty? How soon does she...

Exiting the European Union: Negotiations (14 Dec 2017)

Anna Soubry: Nobody on the Government Benches who voted against the Government took any pleasure in that—[Interruption.] Nobody from these Benches drank champagne. Let me just nail down that rumour—these are serious matters. I say to the Secretary of State that last night would have been avoidable if the offer of my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Beaconsfield (Mr Grieve) had...

Exiting the European Union: Negotiations (14 Dec 2017)

Anna Soubry: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Anna Soubry: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that a moment comes in one’s life when, on the most important issue that this nation has faced in decades, we have to set aside party differences and even party loyalty and be true to our principles and to what we believe in? It could be that that moment is now.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Anna Soubry: My hon. Friend is probably right, but my understanding is that the definition of withdrawal agreement clearly says “whether ratified or not”, so we do not have to follow the European Parliament. However, unless we get a meaningful vote, it may well end up being able to vote on something that, frankly, we will not be able to vote on.
