European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (15 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: It is a great pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Streatham (Chuka Umunna). We are co-chairs of the all-party parliamentary group on EU relations; our relationship with the EU will continue. He chairs it extremely ably. I am grateful to him for the kind comments that he made at the beginning. His analysis, as ever, was absolutely spot on. For far too long, we have had far too much...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (15 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I would love to ignore death threats, but I actually find them quite frightening. As a result, I have in the past reported at least two to the police. The courts took it very seriously, I say gently to the hon. Lady. They sent one person to prison and suspended the other person’s custodial sentence. I am glad that some people in this place take it seriously.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (15 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I am desperate to get on with supporting new clause 22 and endorsing the excellent speech made by the hon. Member for Lewisham East (Heidi Alexander). Notwithstanding the referendum result, we all need to move on. When I stood for election in Broxtowe in June, I did so on the clear platform of accepting that we were leaving the European Union but continuing to make the case for the single...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (15 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I completely agree with the right hon. Gentleman. I go on about what history will write about this place, and one of the observations of history will be the lack of debate until almost this point, which does us no credit. Another will be that at least two thirds, I reckon, of the people elected to this place are of the same view on the customs union and single market.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (15 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I am not going to adopt the hon. Gentleman’s tribal language, because I am trying to build a consensus. I understand why Conservative Front Benchers find themselves in the position that they are in. Equally, I understand the difficulties that the Labour party has. The simple, harsh reality is that people from all parties voted both leave and remain. One of our biggest problems when we...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (15 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I know that an overwhelming majority of the people who voted in the hon. Lady’s constituency voted to remain. Does she share my concern that many such people feel completely excluded from Brexit? Does she think that this sort of debate will absolutely help to bring people back together and, perhaps, to form a consensus on Brexit?

Zimbabwe: Points of Order (15 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. My apologies for not bringing this to your attention sooner, but it has only just been brought to my attention. Would it be in order for you to comment on the fact that my office has just reported to the police about five tweets, if not more, that have issued threats against me following the front-page article of today’s The Daily Telegraph? Would you...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Interpretation of retained EU law during transitional period (14 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Does the hon. Gentleman share my concern that what he describes is a blatant piece of bullying that goes to the very heart of democracy? None of the people who have been named—I take it as a badge of honour—want to delay or thwart Brexit; we just want a good Brexit that works for everybody in our country. That is not a lot to ask for in a democracy.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Date of exit from the European Union (14 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Oh move on, for God’s sake!

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Date of exit from the European Union (14 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Will my hon. Friend give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Date of exit from the European Union (14 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I am very interested in my hon. Friend’s point about the fact that the date should have been in the Bill. It was an important point, so will he tell us why he did not table an amendment to insert the date?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Date of exit from the European Union (14 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Does the right hon. Lady agree that we simply have not had the debates? That, of course, is not lost on the European Union, and it is also not lost on the people of this country. If we had those debates and if we had a real say on what Brexit will look like, we would begin to form a consensus and we would begin to bring people together across the United Kingdom in getting that good deal,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Date of exit from the European Union (14 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that, notwithstanding what happened in the past, the reality is that we have had the referendum and 52% have voted to leave, so it is now imperative that we all come together as much as we can to get this right? We need to get the best deal and the best legislation to deliver that deal. Most importantly, we must return sovereignty to this...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Date of exit from the European Union (14 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Hospital Car Parking Charges (Abolition): Tax Avoidance and Evasion (14 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I have been very helpfully provided with some facts that I think should be put to the House. I am told that since 2010 the Government have secured £160 billion from tackling avoidance, evasion and non-compliance and £2.8 billion from offshore tax evaders, and invested £1.8 billion in Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs to tackle avoidance and evasion. I am very proud of...

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...
