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...

Olympic Sports/GCSE PE (1 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I am very grateful to my hon. Friend for that intervention, and I know Kyle will pleased to hear those words. There is an outbreak of unity across the normal political divides on this issue. I am very grateful to the hon. Member for Gedling (Vernon Coaker), who wanted to attend the debate but cannot. He has been good enough to share with me correspondence relating to his constituent, Natalie...

Finance Bill: Deemed domicile: review of protection of overseas trusts (31 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: Does my right hon. Friend agree that an important point to make about non-doms is that the idea that they are all multimillionaires, if not billionaires, is an absolute fallacy? Many non-doms quite properly have that status, but the idea that they are fat cats or rich people with oodles of money who are up to dodgy dealings is an absolute myth. Many of them are actually of modest means, but...

Finance Bill: Deemed domicile: review of protection of overseas trusts (31 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech, although I would be intrigued to find out, perhaps after the debate, why Brentwood—I nearly said “of all places”, but I am sure that it is a wonderful place—was judged to be so favourable for women. But we are getting away from the Finance Bill and the important points that he is making about the economy. Does he agree that...

Finance Bill: Deemed domicile: review of protection of overseas trusts (31 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: I am enjoying the very good speech that my hon. Friend is making. Obviously, I do not want to get into a Brexit debate. Heaven forbid that he and I fall out in some way, or even worse do our impersonations of bygone sketches, which he clearly could not remember because he was not born then but, on a serious point, does he share my concern that we are already seeing great businesses looking at...

Sexual Harassment in Parliament (30 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: May I, too, congratulate you on and endorse your comments, Mr Speaker? I thank the right hon. and learned Member for Camberwell and Peckham (Ms Harman) and my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House for all that they have said. We do indeed need change; things cannot go on as they are. I very much welcome the notion that we are going to set up an independent grievance procedure to provide...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (24 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: Does my hon. and learned Friend agree that the Opposition’s motion would have had more credibility if it had included the word “fix”? There was no mention of that. It was simply about a pause.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (24 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: The Chancellor, in his efforts to secure a good Brexit deal and a transition period, has the confidence and support not only of Members on the Government Benches, but from across the whole of British business, including in Broxtowe—unlike the Labour party, which inspires complete fear with the Marxist mayhem it would put into policy if elected into government. Will my right hon. Friend...

European Council (23 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: I commend the Prime Minister’s statement and the progress she has made in the EU negotiations. As we have heard, representatives of British businesses of all sizes and from all sectors have today written to the Government to warn of the consequences of no deal and relying on WTO rules. They said: “The Government should give certainty to business by immediately ruling this option...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: My right hon. Friend and I are about the same age. Does he share my concern that anyone who is younger than us and listening to the debate might labour—no pun intended—under the misapprehension that, before the election of a Conservative Government in 2010, the previous system was perfect, when it has been bedevilled by flaws for decades? That is why this simplified system, when...
