Brexit and Foreign Affairs (26 Jun 2017)

Peter Grant: I wish to start with a statement that will cause anger and disbelief on the Conservative Benches: “Parliament has remained sovereign throughout our membership of the EU.” Those are not my words; they are the words of the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union.

Commonwealth: Trade — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (22 Feb 2017)

Kirsty Blackman: ..., but it is important to note that in any trade deal with another country we might still have to cede some of our sovereignty, because that is how trade deals work—we have to concede some things and to compromise when we make a trade deal.
