Leaving the European Union — [James Gray in the Chair] (1 Apr 2019)

Chuka Umunna: I am just quoting from the Minister’s own document. Technically, he is—dare I say it?—the Minister for no deal. He is responsible for ensuring that we are prepared if we leave in those circumstances. Never mind no responsible Government allowing us to leave without a deal; I cannot see how any Member of this House who held the post that he does as the Minister responsible could stand...

Leaving the European Union — [James Gray in the Chair] (1 Apr 2019)

Chuka Umunna: I will finish on this point: above all, the people who will be most angered by us allowing the country to crash out with no deal are the younger generations. For all the impact that this will have on older generations, the younger generations are the ones who will have to live with the results of Brexit for far longer than the rest of us. To my increasing surprise, every time we debate these...

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (27 Mar 2019)

Chuka Umunna: I have five quick points, or thereabouts, to make in five minutes. First, it is an absolute and utter disgrace that it has come to this—that the Back Benches of this House are having to force the Government to follow a process to reach a decision. The Prime Minister should have been the one sponsoring and initiating this process—that is called leadership—but the reason why time and...

European Council (25 Mar 2019)

Chuka Umunna: This is a parliamentary democracy and it is quite clear that this Parliament will not approve the Prime Minister’s deal. If, through an indicative vote process, a majority forms behind an alternative way forward and she does not then implement it, will not any remaining shred of authority or credibility she has with our EU partners completely disappear? How on earth could she remain in...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: HIV Infection (22 Mar 2019)

Chuka Umunna: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what steps his Department is taking to ensure the ending of new HIV transmissions in England by 2030.

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the European Union (14 Mar 2019)

Chuka Umunna: It is clear that, if we seek an extension, we will need to give a specified purpose, and members of the European Council have already been clear that holding a people’s vote would fulfil that requirement. At the very least, however, this House needs to come to a decision on where the majority view lies. The right hon. Gentleman seemed to be saying that, if we passed this motion tonight, the...

Spring Statement (13 Mar 2019)

Chuka Umunna: Growth is now forecast to be 1.2% in 2019 and 1.4% in 2020. It is worth reflecting on the fact that, before the EU referendum, it was forecast to be 2.1% in each of those years. Growth of under 2% over the forecast period is sluggish and unimpressive, and the problem will be exacerbated if we fall off a cliff and leave the EU without a deal. Can the Chancellor therefore tell the House—I...

Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Opinion (12 Mar 2019)

Chuka Umunna: My preference would be an arrangement that does not necessitate a backstop. For all the words that the Attorney General has used, is it not the case that none of these things—the joint instrument, the unilateral declaration and the change to the declaration—facilitates an unconditional unilateral withdrawal by the UK from the backstop? More than that, for all the words that he has used,...

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the EU (14 Feb 2019)

Chuka Umunna: My right hon. and learned Friend is right in what he says about business and the need for clarity, and it is clear for all to see that the Government will need to apply for an extension to article 50 to avoid no deal, or even if there is a deal. The reason they are not doing so, and the reason why the Brexit Secretary is not saying what he should to give certainty to business, is that the...

Immigration and Social Security Co-Ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill (28 Jan 2019)

Chuka Umunna: Will the Home Secretary just confirm for the record that the Government are formally dumping their commitment to a net migration target—to reducing migration down to the tens of thousands? If I am wrong, will he at least confirm that international students will not be included in that ridiculous target?
