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

Joanna Cherry: Earlier in our debate, the right hon. Member for West Dorset (Sir Oliver Letwin) said that we all know what “appropriate” means and so would a court. Can the Minister tell us what “appropriate” means in this context?

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

Joanna Cherry: Is the point not really that, as has been pointed out by Justice and the Law Society of Scotland, the term “appropriate” is so wide that it gives the courts a breadth of discretion that they themselves have told us that they do not want?

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

Joanna Cherry: I was struck by the rather sweeping statement by the right hon. Member for West Dorset (Sir Oliver Letwin), in reference to clause 7, that we apparently all know what “appropriate” means and that the courts will know what “appropriate” means. Does my hon. Friend, like me, look forward to hearing from the Minister what “appropriate” means, and does he, like...

Brexit Negotiations (11 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: We are told that this first-stage deal is a statement of intent that is not legally binding. Does the Prime Minister agree that the same could be said of her article 50 letter, and that if a satisfactory deal is not reached overall at the end of the day, it would be open to this sovereign Parliament, as a matter of EU law and in accordance with our constitutional requirements, unilaterally to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Leaving the EU: University Staffing (11 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: Heriot-Watt University and Edinburgh Napier University in my constituency have made staff redundant, citing Brexit and the UK Government’s immigration policies as a proximate cause. Napier University has advised me that potential staff members from other EU countries are turning down job offers. What concrete reassurance can the Minister give these international award-winning...

Report on Recent Terrorist Attacks (5 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: I thank the Home Secretary for giving me advance sight of her statement, and I join her in paying tribute to our police and security services, and in remembering the dead, the injured, their loved ones and all those affected by these terrible attacks. I commend David Anderson for his usual thorough and excellent work, and I welcome his recommendations and reflections, which will be studied...

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: I understand that yesterday the Prime Minister had to withdraw her agreement to her own agreed text as a result of the DUP’s intervention. Does the Minister really think that it is acceptable for a British Prime Minister to have to conduct herself in such a way in international negotiations?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: UK Legal System (5 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: Last month—just two weeks ago—while the House debated the EU (Withdrawal) Bill, the Prime Minister’s spokesman told journalists that the Government expect the role of the European Court of Justice to remain unchanged during an implementation period of two years after the Brexit date in March 2019. Will the Minister confirm to the House that that means that it will not be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: UK Legal System (5 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: Last week “Sky News” reported that the Government wish to stay in the European Aviation Safety Agency after Brexit and accept that that will mean remaining under the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice, because it is the ultimate arbiter of EASA rulings. Will the Minister now confirm that this means the Prime Minister’s red line of no ECJ jurisdiction after Brexit...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: I am encouraging those Conservatives to listen to the experts who have given evidence to the various House of Commons Committees,whether orally or in writing. I have mentioned several of them. May I mention what Dr Jo Hunt, from the University of Cardiff, said to the Exiting the European Union Committee? She said: “This should be a profound constitutional moment, where the nature of...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: The Scottish National party has always worked constructively with all parties to ensure that the principle of subsidiarity is respected within these islands. However, what we are not in the business of doing is simply lying supine while all these powers are brought back from Brussels and left here at Westminster, with absolutely no time limit—[Interruption.] The hon. Member for...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: I will continue my point. We are told that it is imperative for everything to be imposed on Scotland, Wales and indeed Northern Ireland from the top down, because we have a UK single market.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: No, we have heard a lot from the hon. Gentleman. I only have a little time left, and I want to develop my point about the single market, because it is very important. I am indebted to the Scottish blogger and writer, Paul Kavanagh—better known on these Benches as the Wee Ginger Dug—for my thoughts on this matter. He has pointed out that there is no such thing as a UK single...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: The distinction I am drawing is between a single market and a unitary market. I am saying that the European Union is a single market because it is a collection of sovereign states that come together and participate in making common regulations. The United Kingdom, as framed by this withdrawal Bill, will not be such a single market. It will be a unitary market where the regulations and the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: As I said, I am drawing my comments to a close. I want to address one of the many points we have heard from the Government Benches. I think it was the hon. Member for Aberdeen South (Ross Thomson) who said that he is upset and disappointed that the issue of independence is still on the table. Well, I will tell him why it is still on the table; today gives us a good example. The majority of...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: I rise to support the amendments standing in the name of my right hon. Friend the Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber (Ian Blackford), and those that have been drafted by the Scottish and Welsh Governments, which have cross-party support from the SNP, the Labour party, Plaid Cymru and the Liberal Democrats. I want to dispel a myth emanating from Conservative Members before I look at clause 11...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: The hon. Gentleman makes a point about the power grab, but he needs to understand that this phrase is not just used by the SNP. As I said earlier, it was first used by the former British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown. Government Members have been surprised that I am quoting Gordon Brown, but the Conservative and Unionist party needs to understand that all the Scottish parties—apart from...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: On a point of order, Mr Crausby. The hon. Gentleman has used the word “disingenuous”. We have already heard from the Chair once today that that word ought not to be used about another hon. Member. I very much hope that the hon. Gentleman is not suggesting that I am being disingenuous. We might disagree, but I am not being disingenuous. I invite him to withdraw the comment.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?
