Exiting the European Union: Exit Negotiations (15 Mar 2018)

Patrick Grady: Does the right hon. Gentleman foresee a scenario in which the deal negotiated is so mind-bogglingly positive that all the other European Union states want that kind of relationship as well, and the European Union itself implodes? Or does he accept that membership is the best possible relationship we can have with the European Union, so any new settlement will be disadvantageous compared with...

Business of the House (8 Mar 2018)

International Court of Justice: Foreign Affairs Committee (1 Mar 2018)

Patrick Grady: This is a blow to our international influence, and certainly to any notion of empire 2.0. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that that kind of language and attitude is perhaps a contributing factor to these decisions, including the decision to refer the Chagos islands case to the ICJ? Does the Committee intend to look into whether our lack of a judge on the ICJ may have any influence on its...

Business of the House (1 Mar 2018)
