Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Oct 2017)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: Prime Minister, last week you announced that you would fund 25,000 extra socially rented homes over five years. The waiting list in Brighton is already that. Along with Brighton, my other local authority, Lewes District Council, is wanting to build more council houses, but your policies will not help them, because they are limited not by the open market, but by the Government’s...

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

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: It is nice to hear about the Scottish example, but I am interested to know whether the hon. Gentleman thinks that the Government should change course when they are defeated in a chamber, instead of just hearing him attack the SNP, which I do not have much truck with either.

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

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: This House is rather archaic. Many of these things I can live with: the pomp and circumstance, the wearing of funny clothes—I am one of those who wears their own style—and the walking around with a giant mace. What I cannot abide, however, is when rules and procedure are used, in what seems like an underhand way, to reduce the ability of constituents to hold us to account....

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

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: Exactly. It seems that the Government have not got the message that they should be accountable to this House. It is of course welcome that they have announced some minor changes—at the Conservative party conference and to the press lobby—on tuition fees and the public sector pay cap. But the problem with decree through press release is that it reduces the ability of this House to...

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

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: Yes, but the suggested tuition fees amendment was not. The subject of how we challenge statutory instruments is important in the light of our discussions on the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill. I sat through a lot of those discussions and Government Ministers tried to reassure me time and again—not that they were very reassuring—that we should not worry about processes through...

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

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: No. This parliamentary jiggery-pokery was used not only to ensure that the debate did not come in time to be able to withdraw the statutory instruments, but to prevent a vote in the House. Therefore, the will of the House seems less strong to members of the public. That is the reality of what happened. If the Government had stood at the Dispatch Box that day and said, “We won’t be...

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

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: Mr Speaker, “We will scrap the Conservatives’…White Paper and replace it with fresh negotiating priorities that have a strong emphasis on…the Single Market” and putting “the economy first”. That was the manifesto on which Labour Members stood only a few months ago. We said that we would scrap this Bill and send it back. I beg Labour colleagues who are...
