Economy and Jobs (20 Jan 2020)

Alison Thewliss: ...of having a mandate. Well, he certainly does not have a mandate in Scotland, where his manifesto was rejected wholeheartedly and where the Tories lost more than half their MPs; he has absolutely no mandate to preach to Scotland on his austerity plans. In the last few weeks, we have had a new year, a new Prime Minister and a new UK Government. Under any normal circumstances we would be...

Scottish Parliament: European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (8 Jan 2020)

Angela Constance: ...would have thought it possible that the current version of the Tories’ Brexit bill would actually be worse than its predecessor? It is completely mythical to suggest that it removes the risk of a no-deal Brexit, and we have seen the downgrading of concrete commitments, which have been replaced with blank sheets that raise even more questions. There is deep suspicion about the removal of...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill: Saving of ECA for implementation period (7 Jan 2020)

Philippa Whitford: ...is set in any of the clauses, with references only to “implementation period completion day”. Clause 33 later forbids any extension to the transition period, which means that we still face a no- deal crash-out at the end of this year, thus continuing business uncertainty, discouraging investment, and keeping the brakes on the UK economy. A Government do not need to legislate for their...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (20 Dec 2019)

Ian Blackford: ...can equally legislate to remove that burden before the end of 2020. I predict that that may indeed end up being the position, because the harsh reality is that that deadline means that the risk of a no-deal Brexit, which we all fear, is very much back on the table. Scotland could not have been clearer last week. We did not vote for Brexit, and returning the SNP with a greater mandate shows...

Scottish Parliament: General Election Outcome (17 Dec 2019)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...is a matter of some urgency, which is why this Government wants people to have a choice next year. Back in the early 1990s, when Scotland was facing the prospect of a fourth Tory Government with no mandate here, there was a coming together of political parties, communities and civic Scotland. That resulted in the establishment of this Parliament, which has achieved much. However, a new...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (14 Oct 2019)

Ian Blackford: ...”, “chaos” and “catastrophe” are now everyday terminology in the United Kingdom, and that is alarming. I fear that the past few years have numbed many of us to the looming disaster of a no-deal Brexit and to the real dangers of the Vote Leave occupants of No. 10. Britain is in a difficult position, with a dangerous Prime Minister who has no majority and no mandate for office. He...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (2 Oct 2019)

Lord Livermore: ...24 hours earlier that the suspension of Parliament was unlawful. But while the Prime Minister’s Statement was reckless, it was also revealing, providing us with the clearest insight yet into the no-deal playbook, the rhetorical strategy designed to achieve the most extreme form of Brexit. The first and most pernicious part of this strategy is to question the patriotism of their...

Questions to the Mayor of London — No-Deal Brexit & London’s economy: No-Deal Brexit & London’s economy (25 Sep 2019)

Sadiq Khan: Thank you, Chair. You have ruled this question in order and so it must be appropriate, Chair, for me to answer this question, which is on a no-deal Brexit. According to the Bank of England and the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR), there is a very real risk of a recession if the UK crashes out of the EU without a deal.  A no-deal Brexit would cause huge disruption, making us poorer and...

Early Parliamentary General Election (No. 2) (9 Sep 2019)

Jo Swinson: ...a Liberal Democrat majority Government would indeed revoke article 50. He should not be surprised by that position; perhaps he should pay more attention. This Government and this Prime Minister have no mandate for a no-deal Brexit that they are trying to force on the British people. It is clear from the resignations of the right hon. Members for Orpington (Joseph Johnson) and for Hastings...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...ensure that the will of Parliament is upheld. The fact that Parliament is compelled to pass a law to ensure that its will is upheld shows what extraordinary times we live in. The House has rejected no deal. Businesses and trade unions are united in rejecting no deal, and there is no majority for it across the country. The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, the co-convenor of the Vote...

Prorogation of Parliament — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (9 Sep 2019)

Justin Madders: ...amounts to the same thing—an absolute outrage for democracy. That is where we are. Parliament will be suspended later today because the Prime Minister desires to avoid scrutiny and force us into a no-deal Brexit, despite the Government’s own analysis showing that a no-deal Brexit would mean food shortages, medicine shortages and chaos at our ports, and despite Parliament legislating to...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Second Reading (5 Sep 2019)

Lord Oates: My Lords, the Bill should be unnecessary. If we had a Government we could trust and a Cabinet that took an interest in the real and devasting impact that no deal will have on people, it would be. The Government have no mandate for no deal, which is expressly opposed by the elected House, yet they appear determined to impose it on this country by hook or by crook—mainly by crook. I will not...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (No Deal) (5 Sep 2019)

Michael Russell: .... I hope that, when we come to decision time, we can present the unanimous view of a united Scottish Parliament. I hope that the Parliament can be united in saying to the Prime Minister, “You have no mandate for a no-deal Brexit. Under no circumstances should you inflict such damage on our people”, and, “We condemn your suspension of the UK Parliament.” We might hear two arguments...

Deferred Divisions: Early Parliamentary General Election (4 Sep 2019)

Thelma Walker: ...to younger children that integrity was doing the right thing even when someone is not watching. Well, we are watching the Prime Minister, and my fear is, if an attempt is being made to get away with no deal with no mandate and to gag Parliament while we are watching, what other horrors are going on behind closed doors? Will the Prime Minister tell me whether he believes his Cabinet has the...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill: Duties in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (4 Sep 2019)

Stephanie Peacock: Does my hon. Friend agree that there is no mandate in this place for no deal, just as there is no mandate for remain? In that spirit, will he and those on the shadow Front Bench support our compromise amendment, which looks to bring Members across the House forward to get a compromise deal and get the House and the country out of this crisis?

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill (4 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Wright: ...to bring forward any deal that they negotiate, for us to approve it or not. It would be an international treaty, and the processes are already in place for us to do that. Secondly, in relation to a no-deal outcome, what the right hon. Member for Leeds Central and colleagues have put forward is on the premise that there is no mandate for no deal. It is certainly true that the leave campaign...

Spending Round 2019 (4 Sep 2019)

John Martin McDonnell: ...review as he should, even before the Government’s majority disappeared yesterday. We have seen the so-called headroom, which the Chancellor’s predecessor had claimed was needed to prepare for a no-deal Brexit, spent instead on preparing for a general election. We all know that the Chancellor may not be in his job very long and maybe that is why he felt he needed to rush a spending...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Withdrawal Agreement (4 Sep 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Last night, 85% of Welsh MPs voted against no deal, including some very honourable Members who braved their own Whip. No deal has no mandate from the people and no mandate from Parliament. Is the Secretary of State proud of being complicit in his Administration’s attempt at pushing through an anti-democratic, damaging version of Brexit by silencing Welsh MPs who are representing our...

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Caroline Lucas: I am pleased to speak in favour of the motion, which would enable us to pass a Bill tomorrow to prevent our crashing out of the EU with no deal at the end of October. Let us remember why we are at this point. This discussion is happening now because the Prime Minister is running scared of democracy. The Prime Minister knows that his reckless no-deal Brexit will never get the support of this...

No-deal Update - Statement (3 Sep 2019)

Baroness Ludford: ...start by noting the fact that, after the welcome move of Dr Phillip Lee MP from the Conservatives to the Liberal Democrats, the Government have no parliamentary majority, let alone any majority for no deal. Historians of Brexit will examine as a major theme how a party supposedly characterised by conservatism and caution about change got hijacked by radical and revolutionary forces that...
