Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Ian Murray: I pay tribute to my hon. Friend for all his work on the issue. As he says, a lot of WASPI campaigners are listening to the debate in the Gallery, so does he think that this would be an opportune time for the Minister to apologise for the crass remark he made in Westminster Hall that WASPI women could get modern apprenticeships?

Foreign Affairs Committee (14 Dec 2017)

Ian Murray: I pay tribute to my right hon. Friend the Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee for the way in which he has chaired the Committee in his first few months in that position, and, indeed, the Minister for the candid way in which he presented the case of the UK Government when he gave evidence to the Committee. Does my hon. Friend the Chair of the Committee agree that this again shows the...

Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Ian Murray: Last night, we had the unedifying sight of a Minister frantically coming to the Dispatch Box to give concessions to his own Back-Benchers to push through Government policy. In last week’s debates on the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill, many Government Back Benchers said that clause 11 was deficient, but amendments were not tabled. May we have a statement or debate on when the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: International treaties and agreements (13 Dec 2017)

Ian Murray: As always, my hon. Friend makes a compelling case for changing the Bill. Given that the Government are battered and bruised this evening after their outstanding defeat, if the Minister comes to the Dispatch Box and says that they do have assessments of the impact of our leaving these international treaties, should we believe them?

Brexit Negotiations (11 Dec 2017)

Ian Murray: Within a few paragraphs of the Prime Minister’s statement, she reaffirms that the UK will leave the single market and the customs union, says that the Government “will fully protect and maintain Northern Ireland’s position within the single market of the United Kingdom”, and says that there will be “no hard border” and “regulatory...

Royal Assent: Business of the House (7 Dec 2017)

Ian Murray: Many Conservative MPs said in this House on Monday that clause 11 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill is deficient and yet they voted for it. At Scottish questions yesterday, the Secretary of State for Scotland said that the purpose of the Committee of the whole House is merely to listen. Can we have an urgent debate on the purpose of the different stages of a Bill as it goes through this...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Withdrawal Agreement Payment to the European Union (6 Dec 2017)

Ian Murray: It seems peculiar that, when we are supposed to be taking back control, the House has not been given any kind of figure that we can scrutinise. The only figure we have is £350 million a week for the NHS, which we know is a complete lie.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Withdrawal Agreement Payment to the European Union (6 Dec 2017)

Ian Murray: Is my hon. Friend arguing that this country will spend up to £67 billion, over which Parliament will have no say, to leave a club and to take us on to a stage to create a framework to re-enter a relationship with that club?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Welsh Ministers — Power to make consequential and transitional provision (6 Dec 2017)

Ian Murray: It is quite clear that the proponents of Scotland remaining in the UK during the 2014 Scottish independence referendum were right to argue that taking Scotland out of the UK single market would mean the erection of a hard border at Berwick. Given what we have just heard from the hon. Member for South West Wiltshire (Dr Murrison), does my hon. Friend think that the situation would be any...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Joint Ministerial Committee (6 Dec 2017)

Ian Murray: The Secretary of State rightly argued in September 2014 that if Scotland left the United Kingdom, there would be a barrier at Berwick because of Scotland leaving the UK single market. Can he tell the House why it is any different for the island of Ireland? Is not his Brexit shambles a threat to the United Kingdom?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Ian Murray: The Minister is addressing the amendments in my name and those of my hon. Friends. The hon. Member for East Renfrewshire (Paul Masterton) said that he agreed with the principles of my amendments 164 and 165, and that, although he would not vote for them, he expected that the Government would come back with something different to deal with the deficiencies in clause 11. I have not quite heard...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Ian Murray: Will the Minister give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Ian Murray: I feel that the Minister may be finishing his remarks. I intervened at the beginning of his speech to ask whether he would tell us where he thinks clause 11 is deficient, as many of his colleagues have said it is, and how he thinks that, as the Minister responsible for it, he is going to fix those deficiencies.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Ian Murray: The hon. Gentleman is one of the 12 new Scottish Conservative MPs. Many of his colleagues have already said that clause 11 is deficient, and they would like it to be amended. Will he tell us whether he thinks it is deficient, and how he would like it amended?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Ian Murray: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?
