Sanctions (22 Sep 2022)

Stephen Doughty: I have just received notice that on 11 October we will be debating another set of amending regulations on sanctions—not only against Russia, but against a whole bunch of regimes—to deal with the very fact that crypto-assets are not treated in the same way as other financial assets for the purposes of sanctions. In fact, there appear to be a whole series of loopholes that the Government...

Sanctions (22 Sep 2022)

Stephen Doughty: I welcome the new Minister to his place. I look forward to working with him on sanctions, as I have with his many predecessors. I welcome the opportunity to discuss sanctions on Russia again and I am pleased to see such a wide range of issues being covered in today’s measures, which are mainly amendments. My first question is why so many amendments are needed. The Minister has answered some...

Ukraine (22 Sep 2022)

Stephen Doughty: I thank colleagues on both sides of the House for their valued contributions to today’s debate. I, too, think it is fantastic that we have seen the release of a number of Britons and others; that is wonderful news, but we must also recognise that others are still being held or have not made it safely home. I also welcome the new Minister to his place and look forward to working...

Business of the House (22 Sep 2022)

Stephen Doughty: The Leader of the House will be aware that thousands of constituents in Cardiff South and Penarth live in apartment blocks that are affected by fire and building safety defects. As well as needing to get the defects fixed, many are unfortunately facing spiralling insurance costs and also a failure by lenders to implement the Government’s guidance, which affects their ability to get...

Shale Gas Extraction (22 Sep 2022)

Stephen Doughty: The truth is that this will not provide any immediate relief for consumers. When in Wales we have taken measures to try to support our energy security, it was the UK Government who pulled the rug out from under tidal power and tidal lagoons, and who failed to make progress on Wylfa Newydd. Will the right hon. Gentleman be absolutely clear on this? The Welsh Government have issued a moratorium...

Human Rights Abuses and Corruption: UK Sanctions (21 Jul 2022)

Stephen Doughty: I asked the Minister a very specific question. Canada has sanctioned Alexander Lebedev, so will he confirm whether or not the UK has done so?

Human Rights Abuses and Corruption: UK Sanctions (21 Jul 2022)

Stephen Doughty: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant) and the right hon. Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Sir Iain Duncan Smith) not only for securing this critical debate but for their assiduous leadership on these matters across the House. I also welcome the Minister to his new role. I am delighted that we are engaging in such important discussions before the House rises...

Human Rights Abuses and Corruption: UK Sanctions (21 Jul 2022)

Stephen Doughty: I absolutely agree with my hon. Friend’s point, which emphasises the point that I made about acting multilaterally, quickly, urgently and in co-ordination. We heard a lot from my hon. Friend and others about Hong Kong. The United States have sanctioned at least 11 officials—from Carrie Lam to Chris Tang—for their role in infringing on the rights of the people of Hong Kong. What is the...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: New Clause 12 - Adjudications of matters pertaining to international law (20 Jul 2022)

Stephen Doughty: As if we needed any more evidence that this zombie Government are even now doing everything they can to avoid proper scrutiny, here we are as they push this Bill through its Third Reading with less than 24 hours’ notice—[Interruption.] We had 24 hours’ notice of Third Reading, despite what the Secretary of State is chuntering. If only Conservative Members had had the courage to remove...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: New Clause 12 - Adjudications of matters pertaining to international law (20 Jul 2022)

Stephen Doughty: I will not give way. The hon. Gentleman has not been here throughout the course of the debates on the Bill today. The former Attorney General, the right hon. and learned Member for Torridge and West Devon (Sir Geoffrey Cox), admitted: “I do not believe that this legislation will produce a permanent solution”.—[Official Report, 13 July 2022; Vol. 718, c. 399.] Even the former Prime...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: Clause 19 - New Agreements Amending or Replacing the Northern Ireland Protocol (20 Jul 2022)

Stephen Doughty: It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair, Dame Rosie, for the second part of this debate. I will speak to new clause 12 in my name and those of my right hon. and hon. Friends. In the debate so far, we have focused, rightly, on the Henry VIII powers that the Government seek to gift themselves, but of course the problems with this Bill stretch far beyond the sweeping powers that Ministers are...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: Clause 19 - New Agreements Amending or Replacing the Northern Ireland Protocol (20 Jul 2022)

Stephen Doughty: I do not agree with the last part of what the right hon. Gentleman said, but actually I sat around the table with EU ambassadors and, indeed, the EU ambassador to the UK to discuss these very issues just weeks ago, so I have sat down in private, and we have said so publicly on a number of occasions. The right hon. Gentleman should be reassured on that point. It is not just Members on the...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: Clause 13 - Implementation, application, supervision and enforcement of the Protocol (20 Jul 2022)

Stephen Doughty: This has been a very wide-ranging and thoughtful debate, albeit with passion at various points. The question of a democratic deficit is one of the key issues that we have discussed. I recognise the concerns of Unionist colleagues in the Chamber, but I find it odd that the Government are pursuing a Bill with parts that remove powers from this place and the Northern Ireland Assembly and give...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: Clause 13 - Implementation, application, supervision and enforcement of the Protocol (20 Jul 2022)

Stephen Doughty: I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment, by leave, withdrawn. Clauses 13 and 14 ordered to stand part of the Bill. Amendment proposed: 12, in clause 18, page 10, line 9, leave out subsection (1).—(Hilary Benn.) This amendment would remove the Minister‘s power to engage in any conduct in relation to any matter dealt with in the Northern Ireland Protocol, not otherwise...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: Clause 13 - Implementation, application, supervision and enforcement of the Protocol (20 Jul 2022)

Stephen Doughty: Indeed. The point I have made is that the powers the Government are taking remove responsibilities from the Northern Ireland Assembly. We want all communities to have a say on matters that affect them going forward. I am sure we will come on to a number of those amendments in due course. In the same vein, we would support amendment 12, which relates to clause 18, tabled in the name of my...
