United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 11 - Modifications in connection with the Northern Ireland Protocol (21 Sep 2020)

Kirsten Oswald: It is a privilege to follow such a thoughtful and considered speech. I rise to speak to amendments 31 and 32, in my name and the names of my colleagues. They require that the definition of terms used in clause 45 be determined only after an impact assessment of the UK Government’s obligations under international law has been carried out. I am also happy to speak in support of the amendments...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 11 - Modifications in connection with the Northern Ireland Protocol (21 Sep 2020)

Kirsten Oswald: I thank the hon. Member for that intervention. The short answer is no. Regrettably, I do not believe the Prime Minister, on this or other matters. The Prime Minister said at that point: “We have to protect the U.K. from that disaster”: a disaster—and that is his word, not mine—that was negotiated by him and the same adviser as he has now. The Prime Minister visited Northern Ireland...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 11 - Modifications in connection with the Northern Ireland Protocol (21 Sep 2020)

Kirsten Oswald: I thank my hon. Friend that intervention. That is a key point for us. How can anyone trust a Government who do not stand behind the agreements they negotiate—a Government who cannot even agree with themselves? The Prime Minister’s approach has led to several senior legal figures making a sharp exit. Sir Jonathan Jones, the head of the Government’s legal department; Lord Keen, the UK...

Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (17 Sep 2020)

Kirsten Oswald: HMRC estimates that the level of fraudulent or incorrect claims under the CJRS to be 5% to 10%— between £1.75 billion and £3.5 billion—so even at the lower end, that money would be useful in extending the benefits of the scheme. When I asked about this, only five individuals had asked for the data that is held about them and about who has actually secured the funds that have come to...

Kirsten Oswald: The hon. Gentleman can correct me if I am wrong, but he has just suggested that the Scottish Parliament and other bodies would come together under this new office. May I clarify if that is really what he is suggesting?

We also support a bunch of boolean search modifiers, like AND and NEAR, for precise searching.
