EU Exit Negotiations (17 Oct 2017)

Wera Hobhouse: Thank you, Mr Speaker. The Secretary of State has said in his statement that we have made further progress on certainties for EU citizens in this country. May I tell him what creates great uncertainty for people? Those EU nationals who have lived here for many years and now want to apply for British passports are being delayed because they have to apply for settled status first. Can he...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Wera Hobhouse: Does the hon. Gentleman not agree that the future of nuclear is still very uncertain? If the Romans had invented nuclear power, we would still be guarding our nuclear waste sites.

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Wera Hobhouse: As I have said, we have been in Brussels and heard time and again from different sides that it is up to the UK Government to break that deadlock. There are two issues where they are free to break it; this is particularly the case on the money issue, but Government Members do not want to face that, because even a penny to pay in compensation or in the divorce bill will not be good enough. That...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Wera Hobhouse: I congratulate the hon. Member for Warwick and Leamington (Matt Western) on his excellent maiden speech. What an honour it must be to represent such a happy, diverse and, may I say, sensible community. No deal, no way. I completely agree. His constituents seem to be much more clear-sighted than some Members on the Government Benches. May I remind the Government to start taking the Brexit...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Wera Hobhouse: I was in Brussels a couple of weeks ago, and as much as it is true that our European partners would like a deal, they are perplexed by the attitude of the British Government, who simply do not enter into proper negotiations.

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Wera Hobhouse: Does the hon. Gentleman not agree that leaving the single market and the customs union was not on the ballot paper when the British people voted?

Women and Equalities: Leaving the EU: Equalities and Human Rights (12 Oct 2017)

Women and Equalities: Leaving the EU: Equalities and Human Rights (12 Oct 2017)

Wera Hobhouse: I apologise for being a newbie, Mr Speaker. Will the Minister confirm that pregnant women will not be obliged to work night shifts after we have left the EU? They currently enjoy such a protection under EU law.

Petition - Myanmar’S Muslim Ethnic Minority: University Vice-Chancellors: Pay (11 Oct 2017)

Wera Hobhouse: The University of Bath is in my constituency, so I take a great interest in this. A motion raising concerns over the vice-chancellor’s pay was discussed during a meeting of the university court in February this year. The motion was defeated by the votes of the very people who had benefited from decisions on pay, despite the clear conflict of interest, which raises grave concerns about...

Petition - Myanmar’S Muslim Ethnic Minority: University Vice-Chancellors: Pay (11 Oct 2017)

Wera Hobhouse: Less than a week ago, a group of students came to my surgery telling me that rents on campus are going up by 8%. Is there any wonder that people think that students who are already under huge financial pressure will pay the high salaries of some of the management of the university? The public perception is there and it reflects badly on the reputation of our universities.

Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House (10 Oct 2017)
