Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Anna Soubry: My right hon. and learned Friend is right, as ever. The truth is that both main political parties are now in the grasp of the few who falsely claim to speak for the many. A lack of ability, or perhaps courage, the over-liking of the safety and sanctity of ministerial office or, frankly, just a quiet life, on whichever side of the House, and a guaranteed income for a loyal Back Bencher with a...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Anna Soubry: I rise to speak in support of new clause 1 and new clause 12, and I shall also seek to speak briefly against new clause 36 and amendment 73. I hope that there will be Divisions, in the event of which I will vote against new clause 36 and amendment 73. It is my firm view that it is deeply regrettable that the Government have accepted the new clause and amendment, even though they clearly seek...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Anna Soubry: I will take my hon. Friend’s intervention in a moment, but not yet. I say that very gently to my hon. Friend the Member for Mansfield (Ben Bradley), as many of his constituents work in exactly the sorts of manufacturing industries that I am describing. No doubt, like a number of my constituents, some of them work at Toyota. When Members see how these wonderful manufacturing businesses...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Anna Soubry: I will take my hon. Friend’s intervention in a moment. It was Margaret Thatcher who, as a proud Conservative, championed free trade. I am a Tory. I believe in business. I believe in capitalism and in enterprise. I believe in our economy as it provides jobs and prosperity. It is indeed an engine of aspiration for so many of my constituents who want to see themselves going into...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Anna Soubry: I do not pretend to be able to walk in Margaret Thatcher’s boots, but I have read her speeches about the advantages of the single market. She was a huge champion—probably the biggest champion—of the single market. It was Margaret Thatcher who went over to Japan and promised the Japanese that our country would always stay in the single market. On that basis, Japanese business invested...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Anna Soubry: In a moment. The reality, which is faced in the White Paper, is that if we do not deliver frictionless trade in the way in which companies such as Toyota need and demand, they will simply not be able to operate. Some 81% of Toyota cars produced at Burnaston are exported into the European Union. And before anybody says, “Well, there will be new markets”—those unicorns that our Government...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Anna Soubry: I do not wish to be rude to my hon. Friend, but that really is the stuff of madness. Of course we need to export more, but here is the real question that he should be asking. At the moment, a lorry that comes in from the European Union through Dover will take, at the most, two minutes to go through. If it comes from outside the European Union, the process takes 20 minutes at the least, and...

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Anna Soubry: I commend the Prime Minister for this plan. In particular, I congratulate her on her leadership in the past few days. She said she would listen to business, and she clearly has listened to business. However, there are concerns that there are no details of the Government’s plan for services. What more detail can we expect to hear in the forthcoming White Paper?

June European Council (2 Jul 2018)

Anna Soubry: People are fed up with not just Brexit but fudge, so on Friday the Cabinet must agree and settle its policy on Brexit. May I assure the Prime Minister that if the agreement meets the needs of British business she will command support not just across the Government Benches but across the country at large?

Leaving the Eu: Airbus Risk Assessment (25 Jun 2018)

Anna Soubry: A small business in my constituency that employs 180 people is part of the Airbus supply chain, so this matters very much to the good people of Broxtowe. I congratulate the Secretary of State on his statement and welcome it, but Airbus is not alone in having grave concerns about what the Government’s position will be on Brexit and seeking clarity. Will he assure people first that the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval of the outcome of negotiations with the EU (20 Jun 2018)

Anna Soubry: I am concerned that the editor of the Daily Mail has made a small doll that looks like me and is sticking pins in its throat, as every time I want to speak, I get this wretched infection. However, I want to make some very important points. I completely agree with all the arguments advanced by my hon. Friend the Member for Eddisbury (Antoinette Sandbach). History will recall what a...
