Trade Bill: Transfer Schemes (17 Jul 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: AstraZeneca has a supply line of 4,000 people in the north-west. They assist in the manufacturing of a cancer drug that is exported to Europe. Without that export to Europe it would not be viable, because it helps 130,000 people across Europe. Does my hon. Friend agree that remaining in the European Medicines Agency would allow such frictionless trade to carry on?

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: Customs Arrangements — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Streeter. I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Wimbledon (Stephen Hammond) for securing the debate. We applied for the ballot on the same day and he has twice been luckier than I have. He clearly carries the luck with him. I will focus my remarks on three areas: what the public voted for, the agreement made at Chequers last...

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: Customs Arrangements — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: It is clear from the motor manufacturers’ association that Honda, for example, has 3.5 million parts per day coming in for its just-in-time manufacturing. One of the complications of these highly integrated supply chains is that we cannot roll over our existing free trade agreements, precisely because of the limits on rules of origin and the ways that those would apply. We cannot...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Technology (4 Jul 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: The development of the M-Pesa payment system in Kenya with the help of DFID has absolutely transformed the economy, particularly for small traders. What other steps and similar developments can my hon. Friend outline that would improve the Kenyan economy?

Energy Policy (25 Jun 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: I thank the Secretary of State for his very sensible decision. Will he confirm that it would have put an additional 31p on every household’s bill in my constituency every year for up to 65 years, leading to £370,000 a year flowing out of my constituency on energy bills to pay for this uneconomic project?

Leaving the Eu: Airbus Risk Assessment (25 Jun 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: Thousands of jobs in the north-west depend on Airbus and its supply chain there. Does the Secretary of State agree that close regulatory alignment is also a requirement to help to ensure that trade is as frictionless as possible?

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

Antoinette Sandbach: I am grateful, again, to the other place for sending us the amendment. I have been concerned about this issue since the referendum, and have been open in my views about the need for a meaningful vote and parliamentary sovereignty. This is about our country’s future and ensuring that we enhance, not reduce, our democracy. When I was re-elected last year, my constituents were under no...

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

Antoinette Sandbach: I will not give way. I support the Government’s negotiation and strongly believe that the Prime Minister will succeed in her negotiation. However, it would be irresponsible not to have a process in place for what will happen should negotiations collapse. What is more, the amendment would ensure that, when the Prime Minister sits down to negotiate, our European partners know that she...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jun 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: Last Saturday marked two years since the murder of our colleague Jo Cox. Although she is no longer with us, Jo’s legacy still lives on through the work done in her name covering many issues, including loneliness. I welcome yesterday’s announcement of a £20 million fund to combat loneliness, and will my right hon. Friend join me in paying tribute to groups such as Age UK and...

Medicinal Cannabis (18 Jun 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: My constituent’s two-and-a-half-year-old son was having 300 seizures a day. He described each one as resetting his son’s brain like a computer hard drive being wiped. Following the use of CBD, the seizures have been reduced to between 30 and 50 a day. Will the Minister meet me to discuss this case, and will he perhaps meet my constituent, because he has an outstanding application...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: I want to speak in response to the right hon. Member for Don Valley (Caroline Flint), who is no longer in her place. She said that her constituents felt insulted. Well, in the debates around these really crucial issues, some of those who voted another way also feel insulted. They are called remoaners; they are called traitors; and they are called mutineers. The lords who have crafted some...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: I am saying that there is a deal to be done. It is absolutely ridiculous to cut down our options, which is what has happened right after these debates. Artificial red lines have been drawn in the sand, reducing our chances of getting a good deal for this country. For that reason, I support the amendment on the customs arrangements. However, I will be abstaining on the EEA vote because I...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: I want to say how grateful I am that the Lords have given the consideration they have to the Bill, and they have improved it considerably before sending it back to us. I accept that the Solicitor General has given an important concession today and I would have supported the Lords amendment had that concession not been made.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: Will my hon. Friend give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: I am very grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way. Does he agree that the amendment tabled by my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Beaconsfield (Mr Grieve) deals with the issues that he is raising?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Energy Bills (12 Jun 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: What steps he is taking to support vulnerable consumers with their energy bills.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Energy Bills (12 Jun 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: Does the Secretary of State agree that a wide-reaching energy efficiency programme would help vulnerable customers in Eddisbury and elsewhere, as well as helping the UK meet its climate change targets?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 May 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: My constituent Sharon Hollman went through the devastating loss of her teenage son, who committed suicide. She is seeking a serious case review by Kent County Council about multi-agency failings that meant he did not get appropriate mental health support. This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. What reassurance can the Prime Minister give to my constituent and others about the need to...

Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Bill: Parental bereavement leave and pay (11 May 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: It is a huge pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Glasgow East (David Linden) and hear his support for the Bill, together with that of so many others. My hon. Friend the Member for Colchester (Will Quince) said that he spoke to Isabel Hardman of The Spectator about his aim to introduce parental bereavement pay. My aim when I spoke to Judith Woods of The Telegraph—probably in the...

Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Bill: Parental bereavement leave and pay (11 May 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: I am very grateful for my hon. Friend’s intervention. We are making history today. I hope that parents who face child bereavement in the future will feel there is a little bit of grace and a little bit of space for them to be able to deal with what is an utter tragedy.
