Prime Minister’s Statement: European Union (Withdrawal) Acts (19 Oct 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I have always set out wanting to agree a deal with the EU that delivers the outcome of the referendum within the terms of the 2017 manifesto that I stood on. I have fought against an undemocratic no deal and always voted for a deal. In fact, I have voted for a deal more times than the Prime Minister. I have even voted for a deal more times than the Home Secretary, the Foreign Secretary, the...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (14 Oct 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: On that point—

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (14 Oct 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I am very grateful, because I welcome the Prime Minister’s opportunity to revisit the Marxist-style expulsions from the Conservative party. While doing that, he can perhaps look at moving HS2 out of Eddisbury, where he could save £100 million on the route and invest it in energy-efficiency infrastructure projects.

Business of the House (Prorogation): Baby Loss Awareness Week (8 Oct 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I am grateful to the Minister for giving way. The really good evidence that was disclosed in the debate about the way in which maternal loss of babies can cause PTSD shows that there needs to be concrete mental health support for parents who have gone through this experience.

Business of the House (Prorogation): Baby Loss Awareness Week (8 Oct 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for North Ayrshire and Arran (Patricia Gibson), who has been a real support on the all-party parliamentary group on baby loss and who always speaks incredibly powerfully not only about her own experiences but about what needs to change in future. I am grateful, too, to the Leader of the House, who provided time for this debate, and to the...

Business of the House (Prorogation): Baby Loss Awareness Week (8 Oct 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I absolutely do, and I shall come on to that. Having been through the system in Wales, where absolutely no bereavement care at all was offered to me—a charity set up by a former Member of Parliament paid for me to have counselling from Alder Hey—I am as aware as anyone of the issues around access to support. Some 130 NHS trusts have expressed an interest in using the bereavement care...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: The Prime Minister is very keen to point out how to deliver commitments made during an election. He wrote to the One Nation group during his election to be party leader that he was not much attracted to Prorogation—something that he may reflect on now—and that he would seek to build consensus across the House. What undermines his negotiating position is that those watching from Europe...

Brexit Readiness: Operation Yellowhammer (25 Sep 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: On 19 August, I tabled a question asking the Minister to publish his no-deal planning, so I am very grateful for his invitation to MPs to attend his Department to view that. On 9 September, I received an answer to that question saying that due to Prorogation it was not possible to respond. I have also asked that the up-to-date Yellowhammer document be published and that each version of it...

Thomas Cook (25 Sep 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Thomas Cook (25 Sep 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: Will the Secretary of State join me in praising Thomas Cook employees who turned up for work on Monday to help to repatriate passengers? Will he make sure that the inquiries by the Insolvency Service take in the impact on Thomas Cook of the 20% depreciation in the pound against the euro, to help an assessment of whether other travel industry firms based in the UK are vulnerable to those...

Thomas Cook (25 Sep 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: No.

Thomas Cook (25 Sep 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: It does.

Thomas Cook (25 Sep 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: At the start of this session, the Secretary of State gave the impression that primary legislation could not be introduced in this House without a further Prorogation of Parliament and a Queen’s Speech. I seek your guidance on whether that is, in fact, the correct position.

Legal Advice: Prorogation (25 Sep 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: The Attorney General speaks of moral and constitutional courage. Can he explain to the House why the Government did not have the moral and constitutional courage to file in the Supreme Court a witness statement attesting to the truth of the position that was outlined to the Supreme Court judges?

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill (4 Sep 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I want to put on record what a pleasure it has been to serve my constituents in Eddisbury. I think they would be amazed to know that the purge of the Conservative party that took place yesterday led to their Member of Parliament being expelled from the party, together with eight Privy Counsellors, two former Chancellors, a former Lord Chancellor and my right hon. and learned Friend the...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill (4 Sep 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I completely agree. This is a result of the inability of successive Governments to work cross-party across the House to seek common ground, common agreement and common principles. I know many people in this place from all sides of the political divide, and I am certain that there is a will and a way to get through this, but I just have not seen the leadership from the Front Benches to argue...

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: This Parliament is at the very heart of our national story and our shared history, and it is what the Prime Minister’s great idol, Winston Churchill, called the “cockpit of the nation.” To seek to bar the door to that cockpit as the nation flies into one of the biggest constitutional storms in its history is an unsettling thing for a Government to do. It may not be illegal or...

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: Will my hon. Friend give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: Does my hon. Friend recall that the Vote Leave campaign said that MPs in this Parliament would decide which Brexit model—Norway, Switzerland or so on—would apply and that that was part of taking back control? The 17.4 million people were not speaking with a single voice, because they believed that there was a menu of options.
