Leaving the EU (21 Jan 2019)

Jo Swinson: I cannot believe in good conscience, knowing what the Prime Minister does about the devastating impact of no deal on our economy and on our security, that she is willing to let us leave the EU on that basis, yet she seems wedded to her red lines and still against a people’s vote, which would have majority support if she backed it. With 67 days to go, the country deserves better than a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU (16 Jan 2019)

Jo Swinson: Although we were in different Lobbies last night, I appreciate that the Secretary of State genuinely felt that the Prime Minister’s deal was the best way forward, but he can read the runes as to how likely it is that that deal, or any reincarnation of it, will get through the House, so what personal commitment will he give that he will do everything in his power to protect Scotland from the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [9th Allotted Day] (15 Jan 2019)

Jo Swinson: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. This result is of a scale that is unprecedented in recent times, and it is clear that neither this deal, nor any tweaks to it, will get through the House of Commons. May I ask for your guidance on how Parliament can assert its authority to ensure that we can give the people of this country a say on the deal to resolve this matter? It is a mess that...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [5th Allotted Day] ( 9 Jan 2019)

Jo Swinson: Two and a half years ago the Prime Minister stood on the steps of Downing Street and promised to tackle society’s burning injustices. I for one was glad to hear that speech, and I hoped that it would mark a real change in direction from this Government. We could debate endlessly the reasons why people voted to leave the European Union, and of course they were varied. For many, however,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [5th Allotted Day] ( 9 Jan 2019)

Jo Swinson: We are trying to unpick a Union we have been in for 40 years. Look at the chaos that is causing. The last thing we need is the chaos of trying to unpick a Union of 300 years. If this experience tells us anything, it is how disastrous that would be. We need a people’s vote. Two and a half years on, we know that leaving the European Union will not make us richer. It will not bring in £350...

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe ( 7 Jan 2019)

Jo Swinson: The case of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe is heartbreaking: the separation of a mother from her young child and now this dreadful escalation in the reduction of food rations and the denial of medical treatment. Sadly, Iran has form when it comes to the cruel practice of preventing medical attention. In 2017, one political prisoner died and another lost part of his face because of untreated...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Household Incomes ( 7 Jan 2019)

Jo Swinson: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I hope that the delay to the full roll-out of universal credit is a sign that the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions is open to making the many changes to universal credit that are needed. I urge Minister to look in particular at the harsh repayment timescales for loans, which led my constituent to say: “I should never have taken that 3 month job. It made me...
