European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Stephen Kinnock: Yes, of course.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Stephen Kinnock: I rise to support amendment 7, tabled by the right hon. and learned Member for Beaconsfield (Mr Grieve). I have listened with great interest to all the excellent speeches and interventions by right hon. and hon. Members this afternoon and, for me, three key themes have emerged. First, there is real disagreement about the meaning of “meaningful”. Secondly, there is confusion about...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Stephen Kinnock: I agree absolutely with the right hon. Lady. I pay tribute to her and to a range of other right hon. and hon. Members across the House. This is not an easy choice to make. It is always difficult in these circumstances when there is a huge amount of interest and focus on what we are about to do in this House. It is essential that hon. Members stick with their principles, and sometimes that...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Stephen Kinnock: I am afraid I must push on, because we are moving towards the deadline. Having paid tribute to those right hon. and hon. Members for what they are doing this evening, I commend the terms of amendment 7 to the House. I will be honoured to go through the Division Lobby with those right hon. and hon. Members this evening.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Stephen Kinnock: Article 50 clearly states that an extension can be requested, so when we voted to trigger it, we voted to trigger a clause that included the possibility of requesting an extension.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Regulations to deal with deficiencies arising from withdrawal - Independent Report (12 Dec 2017)

Stephen Kinnock: I rise to speak to new clause 37, tabled in my name and the names of many hon. Friends. Before I turn specifically to the detail of the new clause, I would like to summarise the powers and functions of regulatory institutions. In essence, they are: monitoring and measuring compliance with legal requirements; reviewing and reporting on compliance with legal requirements; enforcing legal...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Regulations to deal with deficiencies arising from withdrawal - Independent Report (12 Dec 2017)

Stephen Kinnock: Is my hon. Friend aware of the fact that at least half of the approximately 42 EU agencies that exist offer no provision for the participation of third countries? Could she perhaps ask Members on the other Benches how the Government can possibly build the necessary capacity when we are unable to participate in those agencies?

Brexit Negotiations (11 Dec 2017)

Stephen Kinnock: The Prime Minister has repeatedly claimed today that the financial settlement is subject to the conclusion of the future deep and special partnership. May I draw her attention to paragraph 96 of the progress report, which clearly states that the financial settlement is contingent only on conclusion of the article 50 withdrawal agreement and the transitional arrangements? Will she please...

Palestinian Communities: Israeli Demolitions — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Stephen Kinnock: I thank the Minister. I certainly welcome his comments on a range of issues. He gave a very balanced, reasonable and pragmatic overview of what has been said today and where we need to go from here. He rightly recognised that nobody is perfect in this situation and everybody needs to get to the table. What I really hope is that the Government will close the gap between rhetoric and reality...

Palestinian Communities: Israeli Demolitions — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Stephen Kinnock: I beg to move, That this House has considered the effect of Israeli demolitions on Palestinian communities. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Pritchard. Before beginning the debate in earnest, I will make clear a couple of things, which I hope will ensure that this and subsequent debates can proceed in a constructive manner. First, nothing that I or, I hope, others will...

Palestinian Communities: Israeli Demolitions — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Stephen Kinnock: I agree, and I point to a recent UN report, which declared that Gaza will be “unliveable” by 2020 due to the degrading infrastructure there, which is degrading for reasons that we know well. My hon. Friend is absolutely right on that point.

Palestinian Communities: Israeli Demolitions — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Stephen Kinnock: I agree that fault can be allocated on all sides of this conflict. The point I make—I hope to illustrate it further during my speech—is that Israel holds the whip hand in this situation; it is in its gift to make some progress and move forward. It is important to see the balance of the relationship in that context.

Palestinian Communities: Israeli Demolitions — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Stephen Kinnock: I personally remain absolutely committed to the two-state solution, but I recognise, as I will set out in my speech, that there has been a 600% increase in settlements in the illegally occupied territories in the west bank. It becomes increasingly difficult to see how a two-state solution could work with that level of occupation taking place.

Palestinian Communities: Israeli Demolitions — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Stephen Kinnock: The hon. Gentleman may well have seen a draft of my speech, because I was about to come on to that very point. The expected announcement later today by the President of the United States on recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has sent shockwaves across the world. If that announcement happens, it may well be the death knell for any prospective peace process. However, I will talk a...

Palestinian Communities: Israeli Demolitions — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Stephen Kinnock: We need to remain absolutely clear that anything that looks to defend, excuse or promote anything that could be remotely perceived as anti-Semitism must be treated as grounds for expulsion from the party. We need to hold very true to that principle.

Palestinian Communities: Israeli Demolitions — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Stephen Kinnock: The hon. Lady is absolutely right. There can be no peace without security and there can be no security without peace. That rule applies universally. With that in mind, I hope that we can have a constructive debate, finding common ground and advancing the cause of peace, justice and security for the peoples of both Israel and Palestine. Next year will mark 25 years since the signing of the...

Palestinian Communities: Israeli Demolitions — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Stephen Kinnock: I add to my hon. Friend’s point that we in the international community have for many years been telling the people of Palestine that, with politics and constructive engagement, a solution will be found. What hope do we give to those young people in those educational establishments if that seems to not be happening?
