EU Exit Negotiations (15 Nov 2018)

Anna Soubry: Nobody but nobody can doubt the Prime Minister’s absolute commitment and dedication to doing her duty and trying to deliver on the result of the EU referendum, but the harsh, cruel truth is that this is not the promised deal. The reason why the people of this country are so fed up is that they have been made so many promises, none of which has been delivered upon, because they cannot be...

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (13 Nov 2018)

Anna Soubry: Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that at best, given the great force with which he speaks as a former Attorney General, the motion should be defeated and we should not be voting for it? Does he share my concern that I have been told I should abstain on this matter? I do not know why. I suspect it is because there is no majority. If that is the case, who is running the country: this...

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (13 Nov 2018)

Anna Soubry: I thank the right hon. and learned Gentleman for giving way. Can he help us with this? Is this a motion that was drafted by the Office of the Leader of the Opposition, which has subsequently been changed quite dramatically at the Dispatch Box? Is it an intervention, yet again, by the shadow Secretary of State to make good the failings of the leader of his party?

Assessment and Treatment Units: Vulnerable People: Centenary of the Armistice (6 Nov 2018)

Anna Soubry: We have the games of remembrance in Nottingham on Thursday. The German and British women’s army teams will play at lunch time at Notts County, and in the evening the British and German men’s army teams will play at Nottingham Forest. Although I am sure that the hon. Gentleman would love to attend, he probably will not be able to, but is it not a great event?

Assessment and Treatment Units: Vulnerable People: Centenary of the Armistice (6 Nov 2018)

Anna Soubry: It is a great pleasure to follow all today’s speeches, but I want to pick out and commend the excellent speeches of both Front-Bench spokesmen and the preceding speech from the hon. Member for Leyton and Wanstead (John Cryer). He touched on one of the outcomes of the first world war, talking about the rise of trade unionism. If there were benefits from the war, they were few, but we...

Assessment and Treatment Units: Vulnerable People (6 Nov 2018)

Anna Soubry: I welcomed the Secretary of State’s words yesterday, when he made it very clear that he understands that the situation now needs urgent action. My constituent’s daughter died at the age of 25, having been sectioned, living in a padded cell; her weight rose to 26 stone when she was apparently being cared for. Does my right hon. Friend agree that it is not just about money and how...

Income Tax (Charge) (29 Oct 2018)

Anna Soubry: If my right hon. Friend would like to do a Google search, as I have just done, he would discover that, apparently, the small, simple croft of the right hon. Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber is valued in the region of half a million pounds.

Income Tax (Charge) (29 Oct 2018)

Anna Soubry: How big is your estate?

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation and Exercise of Functions) Bill: Extension of period for Executive formation (24 Oct 2018)

Anna Soubry: I rise to speak in support of new clause 7, and I urge hon. Members on both sides of the House to support this really meek and mild amendment. It really should not be causing so much agitation, and I think we have to ask ourselves why it is doing so in certain quarters of the House. As many of us discovered when we went to Northern Ireland as guests of Amnesty International, the simple truth...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation and Exercise of Functions) Bill: Extension of period for Executive formation (24 Oct 2018)

Anna Soubry: I absolutely did not say that, although it is obviously something that many of us now seek to do. New clause 7 is the gentlest step forward so that the Secretary of State and her good officials can monitor human rights and see what is happening. This is important work. With great respect to my hon. Friend the Member for North Dorset (Simon Hoare), he was not here for the whole debate. He...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation and Exercise of Functions) Bill: Extension of period for Executive formation (24 Oct 2018)

Anna Soubry: Can my right hon. Friend reassure me on two things: first, that new clause 7 is a matter of conscience and we on this side of the House will not be whipped on it, and, secondly, that new clause 7 does not change the law or indeed give anybody the power to change the law? The notes are very clear: it is all about accountability to the Secretary of State so that she can look at human rights and...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation and Exercise of Functions) Bill: Extension of period for Executive formation (24 Oct 2018)

Anna Soubry: When we went to Northern Ireland with Amnesty International, we learned that people cannot be given that information, because giving it is a criminal offence for which a person will be prosecuted, and they will face a lengthy prison sentence. One of the most concerning features of all this is the inability of people to get any form of advice.
