Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Future Relationship Between the UK and the EU (18 Jul 2018)

Stephen Gethins: Like me, does my hon. Friend find it absolutely astonishing that those who have had a political lifetime to prepare for Brexit—two years in the most senior positions in Government—are trying to blame everybody else but themselves as the wheels come off the Brexit bus?

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Future Relationship Between the UK and the EU (18 Jul 2018)

Stephen Gethins: Will the hon. Gentleman give way to me?

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Future Relationship Between the UK and the EU (18 Jul 2018)

Stephen Gethins: I thank the hon. Gentleman for the speech he is delivering. I am glad that he is using statistics from the House of Commons Library that he clearly believes. As a former Minister, will he reflect on the statistics that the UK Government put together showing just how disastrous every form of Brexit would be?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU (18 Jul 2018)

Stephen Gethins: What recent assessment he has made of the effect on the Welsh economy of the UK leaving the EU.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU (18 Jul 2018)

Stephen Gethins: The Secretary of State’s answer directly contradicts the UK Government’s own analysis, which shows that Wales and every other part of the United Kingdom will be badly hit by their plans for Brexit. If the Government do have a plan for Brexit, we would love to hear it—and is there any economic analysis for it?

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Stephen Gethins: rose—

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Stephen Gethins: The Minister talks about reaching out. Can he tell the House one area this Government have changed because of an intervention from the Opposition Benches or from a devolved Administration that the Conservatives would not have taken on board otherwise?

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Stephen Gethins: I thank the Liberal Democrats for introducing this debate, which is exceptionally timeous, not least because the wheels have well and truly come off the Brexit bus. We have a Government who have fallen apart, the clock is ticking, and it is clear that, having triggered article 50 without having any clear plan, they have absolutely no idea what comes next. That should trouble us all. Whether...

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Stephen Gethins: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. Brexiteers have had their whole careers to prepare, and then the former Ministers whom I have just mentioned had two years in the highest offices of state, with every resource of the UK Government at their disposal, to build on their years and years of so-called preparation, yet we are left in this complete mess. I do not blame the Minister present entirely for...

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Stephen Gethins: My hon. and learned Friend makes an excellent point, and she is well aware from the work she has done representing financial services in her constituency of the difficulties and job losses from the Government’s plans. I find it extraordinary that we have a Government who are proactively pursuing a policy that they know will cost jobs, and they know will hit our GDP and our public...

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Stephen Gethins: I am glad that the Minister is nodding. To charge EU nationals £65 a pop just to remain at home is outrageous and shameful, and it should shame the rest of us. We should also think about the fact that our universities rely on initiatives such as Horizon 2020 and that our farmers rely on seasonal workers. I benefited from the Erasmus programme, but young people might not do so in future....

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Stephen Gethins: There is no such thing as a jobs-first Brexit. If the hon. Lady has seen any economic analysis that tells her otherwise, will she let us know about it?

Sustainable Fisheries (4 Jul 2018)

Stephen Gethins: Just to be helpful to the Secretary of State, if he checks the European Parliament record, as I am sure he would like to, he will see that the SNP has, of course, consistently voted against the common fisheries policy. Fishing communities that I represent—who, incidentally, have not elected a Conservative MP for some decades now—benefit hugely from the European maritime and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Demolition of Khan al-Ahmar (4 Jul 2018)

Stephen Gethins: This is devastating news today at a human level for those who have been impacted, but also for the peace process. Does the Minister agree that sustainable and lasting peace is built on respect for one another and respect for the rule of law? Does he agree with the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights that the demolition violates international law? If so, will he set out what kind of action...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: United States: Human Rights and Diplomatic Relations (26 Jun 2018)

Stephen Gethins: The Foreign Secretary said that he is “increasingly admiring” of President Trump. Is that increasingly admiring of his policy of tariffs, or increasingly admiring of separating children from their parents?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: United States: Human Rights and Diplomatic Relations (26 Jun 2018)

Stephen Gethins: The Foreign Secretary is trying to give us some context for his comments. He also thinks that the President would do a better job of negotiating Brexit than the Prime Minister. If the Foreign Secretary did not like President Trump’s policies and, say, described them as “crazy” and would not vote for them, does the Foreign Secretary think President Trump would say to him,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval of the outcome of negotiations with the EU (20 Jun 2018)

Stephen Gethins: Does my hon. Friend agree this appears to have more to do with trying to hold the Tory party together—Tory Members are negotiating among themselves as we speak—rather than for the benefit of the whole United Kingdom?

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Leaving the EU: Border Policing (20 Jun 2018)

Stephen Gethins: What assessment she has made of the requirements for (a) physical and (b) electronic infrastructure to police the border after the UK leaves the EU.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Leaving the EU: Border Policing (20 Jun 2018)

Stephen Gethins: I thank the Minister for his response. He will be aware that the Government’s own assessment shows the economy being damaged by the Government’s plans and that the least worst option is staying in the customs union and the single market. Is that the case, or does he have alternative economic advice that he could publish?

NHS Long-Term Plan: Sewel Convention (18 Jun 2018)

Stephen Gethins: The hon. Gentleman talks about this democracy and compares the EU with the UK, which I find peculiar. Can he tell me of any other EU member state that is a democracy, where a party has lost an election 21 times in a row, but finds itself in power?
