Business of the House (21 Oct 2019)

Luciana Berger: I wanted to ask for clarification.

Business of the House (21 Oct 2019)

Luciana Berger: I am grateful to the Leader of the House. I ask this question for the record and for the benefit of people outside this place, and also, in fact, so that I myself can fully understand the position. If Members wish to submit amendments to part 1, what will be the last moment at which they are able to do so?

Business of the House (21 Oct 2019)

Luciana Berger: I thank my hon. Friend for giving way, and I apologise for not being here for the start of his remarks—I was getting a copy of these two documents. How on earth am I supposed to digest 110 pages of a Bill and 122 pages of accompanying explanatory notes, before determining what my amendments might be and how to attach them to the right part of the Bill?

Business of the House (21 Oct 2019)

Luciana Berger: The Leader of the House did not want to answer the important question asked by the hon. Member for Aberdeen North (Kirsty Blackman), but when the Brexit Secretary was asked on television over the weekend whether economic impact analyses of the deal had been done, he did not deny the premise of the question. He said that they had not yet been done, not that they would not be done. So will the...

Prime Minister’s Statement: European Union (Withdrawal) Acts (19 Oct 2019)

Luciana Berger: I thank the Secretary of State for very kindly giving way. He has used the word “scrutiny” on a number of occasions in his contribution so far, yet he was on BBC News this morning confirming that no economic analysis has been done on the deal presented to the House today. [Interruption.] Government Members may shake their heads, but how can this House be expected to vote on something so...

Prime Minister’s Statement (19 Oct 2019)

Luciana Berger: The Prime Minister’s Brexit Secretary was on television this morning. He confirmed that no economic analysis of the deal has been done. I ask the House to let that sink in: no economic analysis of the deal, on which we are all expected to vote today, has been done. How does the Prime Minister anticipate that Members on all sides the House can, in good faith, be expected to vote on a deal...

Business of the House (17 Oct 2019)

Luciana Berger: Further to the important question from my hon. Friend the Member for Nottingham East (Mr Leslie), will we, in advance of the debate on Saturday, be privy to the full economic analyses of the declarations and the deal that has been secured today?

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (14 Oct 2019)

Luciana Berger: Does the hon. Lady agree with Sir Simon Wessely, who carried out the Mental Health Act review on behalf of the last Prime Minister, that the issue is not just about legislation change but needs resources too? If we are seriously to address the mental health challenge in this country, we need £800 million extra to go into our mental health services, according to Sir Simon Wessely.

HMRC Impact Analysis: Customs (8 Oct 2019)

Luciana Berger: Anyone outside this place watching the response to this urgent question will be appalled by what they have heard so far, because the party that is supposed to be against red tape is piling it on for so many businesses. I can give the Minister the figures needed to respond to the question from the hon. Member for Mid Dorset and North Poole (Michael Tomlinson): 245,000 businesses will be...

Written Answers — Treasury: Business (7 Oct 2019)

Luciana Berger: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what estimate his Department has made of the number of businesses affected by Operation Kingfisher; and what plans his Department has made to mitigate the effects on those business.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Brexit (7 Oct 2019)

Luciana Berger: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office, what conditions his Department has set which would trigger the implementation of Operation Black Swan.

Brexit Negotiations (3 Oct 2019)

Luciana Berger: In an earlier answer, the Prime Minister alluded to the fact that he had support from business for his plan, and yet the director of the Northern Ireland Retail Consortium has said that the Prime Minister’s plan is both “unworkable and unpalatable”. Will the Prime Minister point to one business that moves goods into Northern Ireland that supports his plan?

Prime Minister's Role in Creating a Safe Environment (26 Sep 2019)

Luciana Berger: Our words carry consequences. They reverberate far and wide beyond these four walls. The Prime Minister, who holds the highest office in our land, also bears the greatest responsibility for what he says and inspires. I do not believe that the Minister can tell this House that he seeks to reduce online harm while the Prime Minister booms out toxic, divisive soundbites, the clips of which are...

Compliance with the European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (26 Sep 2019)

Luciana Berger: The Minister has repeatedly told us this morning that his Government are focused on a deal. If that is the case, why did the Prime Minister yesterday call for an immediate confidence vote, which would shut down Parliament within 14 days and make voting on a deal impossible?

Thomas Cook (25 Sep 2019)

Luciana Berger: Further to the important question from the hon. Member for Bexhill and Battle (Huw Merriman), will you indulge me, Mr Speaker, by allowing me to repeat three important sentences in the statement the Secretary of State shared with the House? It says: “our efforts will turn to working through the reforms necessary to ensure passengers do not find themselves in this position again. We need to...

Thomas Cook (25 Sep 2019)

Luciana Berger: He is not here, but the House has heard everything the current Secretary of State said. Frankly, it is appalling that, two years on, we find ourselves in exactly the same position. What has happened to the Government’s plan, and what could have been done to ensure that the devastating impact on staff and holidaymakers, as well as the cost to this country, did not happen again?

Legal Advice: Prorogation (25 Sep 2019)

Luciana Berger: The Attorney General has told us that he does not agree with the judgment and that he argued against it. If that is the case and the Attorney General was so convinced that Prorogation was lawful, why did not he and the Government provide a witness statement to the Supreme Court to make that case?
