Women Released from Prison (18 Oct 2017)

Joanna Cherry: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. I congratulate the hon. Member for Ogmore (Chris Elmore) on obtaining this debate and on putting the issues so succinctly, especially highlighting the fact that we need to question whether incarceration is always the right response to female offenders, and indeed to all offenders. Clearly there are serious offenders who must be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (17 Oct 2017)

Joanna Cherry: As Amnesty International among others has pointed out, the disproportionate use of force by police against civilians is contrary to international law. What representations has the Minister made to his Spanish counterparts about the treatment by Spanish police of civilians voting in the Catalonian independence referendum?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (17 Oct 2017)

Joanna Cherry: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (17 Oct 2017)

Joanna Cherry: I seek an apology from the Minister for Europe and the Americas, the right hon. Member for Rutland and Melton (Sir Alan Duncan), who is no longer in his seat. The SNP did not send official observers to the Catalonian referendum. The Catalonian Government invited observers from across Europe and the Israeli Knesset. In addition to me, other Members of the House and a peer of the House of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Residency Rights (EU Nationals) (16 Oct 2017)

Joanna Cherry: The Scottish Government have said that they will meet the fee for settled status applications of EU citizens working in the public sector in Scotland, in order to keep vital workers in the NHS and other public services and to make it clear that we want them to stay because we welcome them. Will the United Kingdom Government match that promise—or, better still, waive the fee entirely?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Residency Rights (EU Nationals) (16 Oct 2017)

Joanna Cherry: Scotland does not want to lose the benefit of freedom of movement. Yesterday the Unison trade union said that immigration must be devolved to Scotland after Brexit or else there would be a population crisis. In saying that, Unison is joining with business in Scotland, including the Chambers of Commerce and the Institute of Directors, who have said that they want a separate deal for...

Clean Growth Strategy: UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (12 Oct 2017)

Joanna Cherry: My hon. Friend is making a very powerful speech. At the moment, she is emphasising the importance of accessibility rights. Is she aware that the former Paralympian, Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, has said that leaving the European Union will prevent British people with disabilities benefiting from upcoming EU legislation on accessibility? Does she agree that we need to be conscious of the fact...

Prisons Policy/HMP Long Lartin (12 Oct 2017)

Joanna Cherry: This is not the first time in recent years that the Government have been called to account in this Chamber for trouble in prisons in England. I note that the Prison Governors Association expressed concern about the fact that this trouble took place in a high security prison and reminded the Government that it had called for an independent public inquiry into the state of prisons in England...

Business of the House (Today): Nomination of Members to Committees (12 Sep 2017)

Joanna Cherry: My hon. Friend is making a powerful speech. As a result of the threat of the legal action he has mentioned, we found out earlier this week that the Government say that they need parliamentary approval for this £1 billion bung that they want to pay to the DUP. Does he therefore agree that until such time as that vote takes place, even on their own terms of a “working...

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: UK Nationals in the EU: Rights — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Joanna Cherry: I will start by being quite clear about one thing: the rights of UK citizens living in the European Union have been put at risk by the vote that took place 15 months ago. If the British Government cared so passionately about the rights of those UK citizens living in other EU states, why did they not give them a vote in that referendum? However, we are kind of beyond that now. Like many other...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Joanna Cherry: Last week, we heard excellent forensic legal analysis, on both sides of the House, from the shadow Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union and from the right hon. and learned Member for Beaconsfield (Mr Grieve). I endorse much of what they both said but, for my part, I, like my SNP colleagues, will vote against the Second Reading of the Bill. There is no question that the Scottish...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Joanna Cherry: My hon. Friend makes my point for me. The point I was about to make is that 20 years ago in Scotland, people from all political walks of life voted for the devolved settlement. It is the settled will of the Scottish people. The question for the 12 new Scottish Tory MPs is: will they make their presence felt in this Parliament, and will they protect the democratic will of the Scottish people,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Joanna Cherry: Does the hon. Gentleman agree with the Law Society of Scotland, a non-partisan body, that the Bill would remove legislative competence from the Scottish Parliament, including in areas of law not reserved to the UK, such as agriculture and fisheries? Has he read the Bill?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Joanna Cherry: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Joanna Cherry: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Joanna Cherry: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Joanna Cherry: The right hon. and learned Gentleman is making an outstandingly concise and forensic speech dissecting the difficulties in the Bill. He has drawn our attention to the problem with the definition of “exit day”. Does not that problem also feed into the delegated legislative powers? Clause 7(7) states that Ministers cannot make regulations “after the end of the period of two...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Joanna Cherry: Will the Secretary of State give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Joanna Cherry: Following on from the point made by the right hon. and learned Member for Beaconsfield (Mr Grieve), the Secretary of State has asked for concrete examples of rights that will be lost to UK citizens as a result of the Act, so I would like to give him one and ask for his undertaking that he will amend the Act to make sure that this right will not be lost. Earlier this summer, a man called John...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Joanna Cherry: I am coming to the question, Mr Speaker, but the Secretary of State asked for examples. A challenge such as the one I have described would not be possible under this Bill, because there will be no right to sue. Will the Secretary of State give an undertaking that he will close this loophole in the Bill if we bring forward an appropriate amendment?
