Housing, Communities and Local Government: Parish Councils ( 8 Apr 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: Hankelow parish council in my constituency is facing developers seeking to avoid their responsibility to build affordable homes on the only brownfield site in the village. What powers can be given to parish councils to enable them to ensure that affordable housing development is met?

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill ( 3 Apr 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I support the Bill for this reason: we are seeing the revisionism of history by European Research Group members, who claim that 17.4 million people voted for no deal. That was not on the ballot paper; what was on the ballot paper was our membership of the EU. Many of us in the House triggered article 50 on the basis that we were saying to the EU that we would not remain a full member, but...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill ( 3 Apr 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I am sorry, my hon. Friend has spoken many times. Distressed employers in my constituency who are responsible for thousands of employees want a resolution. The Bill will give Parliament a proper say, in the event that we cannot get a resolution in the timeframes currently set out. Far from being undemocratic, this is about putting a process in place that allows us to implement a decision and...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill ( 3 Apr 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way. The vote itself was on our membership of the EU. It was not about our future relationship. All those emotional matters may well have been sold to the people during the campaign, but the vote itself was about our membership, so it cannot be prayed in aid when considering how our future relationship should be shaped.

Business of the House ( 3 Apr 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: My right hon. Friend ought to be a little careful, because a number of us voted for the Prime Minister’s deal, which would have got us out of Europe on 29 March. As someone who voted for the deal, the suggestion that this proposal is somehow about losers’ bad faith does not accurately reflect my actions.

Business of the House ( 3 Apr 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: rose—

Business of the House ( 3 Apr 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Stone (Sir William Cash) for allowing the intervention, because I had always thought that it was a principle that Parliament has ultimate sovereignty in the UK.

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Global Warming (20 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: Will the Minister outline the steps the Department is taking to improve biodiversity and habitat enhancement, particularly through the recent investment in the Darwin initiative?

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the European Union (14 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: Does the right hon. and learned Gentleman agree that there is great concern that elected Members of Parliament who represent the interests of their constituents have not had an opportunity to vote on a wide range of options that may lead to consensus in this House about a way forward? In fact, the Prime Minister never put her negotiating red lines to this House. It is therefore very difficult...

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the European Union (14 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I do not know whether my right hon. Friend has had an opportunity to read the advice given by George Peretz QC on the example of Croatia, where special arrangements were made. It is possible for there to be an agreement between the EU and the UK as to a mechanism that may not involve elections but would still involve representation in the European Parliament.

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: It is always a pleasure to follow my right hon. Friend the Member for Broxtowe (Anna Soubry), who rightly points out that when you are honest with your constituents and tell them how it is, they respect you for it. My constituents have seen that we have discussed the economic consequences of a no-deal Brexit time and again. I am disappointed, but not surprised, that some of my colleagues...

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I do. I also think that constituents ought to remember that a no deal is a threat to the promises made during the referendum. Vote Leave said: “Taking back control is a careful change, not a sudden stop—we will negotiate the terms of a new deal before we start any legal process”. Well, we know how far that has got. No deal is the most sudden stop anyone can envisage. However, it is not...

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (12 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: Will the Prime Minister confirm the element of risk in going into the backstop when this country was told that this would be the easiest trade deal in history?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements ( 6 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: Women’s football is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. I hope you, Mr Speaker, and my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister will welcome the £70 million investment Cheshire Football Association is putting into developing a women’s football training centre in Winsford. May I invite the Prime Minister to come and open the facility—and take part?

Solar Industry — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] ( 5 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: One of my concerns is the gap that has been spoken about. I understand the Minister’s desire to get things right, but will she consider extending the FIT scheme to cover that gap, bearing in mind that, given her efficient work in her Department, it is likely to be a short delay?

Solar Industry — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] ( 5 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I beg to move, That this House has considered the effect on the solar industry of the replacement of the feed-in tariff. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I am pleased to have secured this important debate. The Minister knows that I have been focused on this issue for a number of months now. The solar industry is reeling from the announcement that the feed-in...

Solar Industry — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] ( 5 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I absolutely agree, and I hope the Minister will say something about community schemes in her response, because there are many different ways of installing and making the best of solar power, as the hon. Gentleman has just indicated, and its flexibility has been one of the reasons why it has been taken up so quickly. I was talking about the damage to the solar industry. One firm in my...

Solar Industry — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] ( 5 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I am aware of the issue. I think those people were misled at the point of signing, and then were trapped in contracts that they found very difficult to execute. I know there have been some very detailed radio programmes that have covered the position of the hon. Gentleman’s constituents and others. In my area, however, solar has been a success and people are keen to get involved in solar...

Solar Industry — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] ( 5 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: There are huge changes coming forward in battery technology. Of course, battery technology will be the key not only to solar energy, but to small-scale wind projects, particularly in relation to how we harness and store such power. There are a number of new and exciting technologies in renewable power. As someone who is keen to see as much of our power as possible coming from renewable...

Solar Industry — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] ( 5 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: The Minister will have heard the hon. Lady’s comments, and I hope that she takes account of them, because a minimum floor price would put the sector on the same footing as the offshore wind industry, which benefits from the certainty that contracts for difference provide, and fossil fuel investors, who benefit from the capacity market.
