Early Parliamentary General Election Bill (29 Oct 2019)

Tim Loughton: ...nonsense about how we need more time for scrutiny and how all these years were wasted, but he was never going to vote for a European withdrawal Bill. He pledged in his party’s manifesto to uphold Brexit, but he is not going to do that. The only way out of this, therefore, is to have this election, which is why he should vote for it.

EU Settlement Scheme: Looked-after Children and Care Leavers — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Tim Loughton: ...a very pertinent point. Therefore, whatever happens, we need clarification under Dublin. However, there is a problem closer to home, which is what we are discussing today, as a direct result of Brexit. It has not received the level of attention that many other aspects of the immigration scheme have, and it is a cause for concern. I have an interest in it, both as a former children’s...

Leaving the Eu: Business of the House (12 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: If recent election results have shown anything, it is the complete frustration of the British people with a failure to solve Brexit, and with Members of this House constantly saying what they do not support and do not believe in. Did my right hon. Friend hear anything in the 30-minute speech by the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), or can he see...

Exiting the European Union (Sanctions): Section 1 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2019 (9 Apr 2019)

Tim Loughton: the culmination of weeks and months of attempts to obfuscate the single largest manifestation of the democratic will of the people of our country—for the Government and this House to deliver Brexit—yet I fear that that clear instruction appears as elusive as ever. This Act is the latest demonstration of remain-supporting MPs who think that they can overrule the will of constituents...

Exiting the European Union (Sanctions): Section 1 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2019 (9 Apr 2019)

Tim Loughton: Let us remind ourselves of what has happened when it comes to voting for something that would take us through Brexit and end this chaos. On the Friday before last in the third meaningful vote, 89% of Conservative Members voted for the Prime Minister’s deal. That included something like three quarters of members of the ERG, who compromised hugely to back that deal. Of the Opposition, all but...

Exiting the European Union (Sanctions): Section 1 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2019 (9 Apr 2019)

Tim Loughton: ...criticising the hon. Gentleman yet. If he will wait for the criticism, I will take the rebuff. Those Independent Group Members have a strong vested interest in continuing the chaos and debate on Brexit, because the minute it is resolved—and it will eventually be resolved—their common purpose is gone. They will have to come up with some non-Brexit policies that they can all agree on....

Exiting the European Union (Sanctions): Section 1 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2019 (9 Apr 2019)

Tim Loughton: 24 of the manifesto of the hon. Gentleman’s former party and page 36 of my party’s manifesto, on which Members of the Independent Group held themselves up to their electorate, pledged that Brexit would become a reality—no second referendum, no thinking about it again; they put themselves forward for election to make Brexit a reality. The remarks of the hon. Gentleman therefore...

Exiting the European Union: Financial Services Sector (4 Apr 2019)

Tim Loughton: Is the Secretary of State aware of the latest Reuters Brexit city tracker index, which revealed that no less than 7.6 million square feet of new leases were signed in the City of London last year, which is a record? The market is currently within 5% of its record high. Fewer than 2,000, or 0.5% of City jobs, have either relocated or been substituted elsewhere on the continent. When is this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (21 Mar 2019)

Tim Loughton: An issue even more taxing than Brexit and the uselessness of Southern rail in Sussex is the continued congestion on the A27, and we are still to get a decision on whether the New Monks Farm development, which will include an IKEA that will attract 2 million passenger journeys a year on to that road, will go ahead. I met the Secretary of State a couple of months ago to ask for an update on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Mar 2019)

Tim Loughton: Back in the world beyond Brexit, my right hon. Friend will be aware that my private Member’s Bill, the Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc) Bill, completed its passage last Friday. I have since received hundreds of letters of thanks, including no fewer than six from prospective civil partners who proposed after my Bill went through and many from anxious mothers...

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc.) Bill: Extension of Civil Partnership (15 Mar 2019)

Tim Loughton: amendments, which were supported by many Members on both sides of the House, to bring about equal civil partnerships for opposite-sex couples. The genesis of the Bill is even longer than Brexit, but unlike with Brexit today we will have closure and a reason to celebrate.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Leaving the EU: Travel Disruption (14 Feb 2019)

Tim Loughton: ...complain to and whether he should write to Chris Grayling. He received the reply from GTR: “Chris Grayling no longer works for the company”. Can the Secretary of State tell us whether a no-deal Brexit will make it easier to withdraw the franchise from GTR at long last and end this nightmare?

Equitable Life: Maintained Nursery Schools (31 Jan 2019)

Tim Loughton: The hon. Lady is being terribly generous. It took us only nine minutes to get to Brexit, but let us get back because this is the subject that we need to talk about. There is an outstanding nursery school in my constituency, Boundstone in Lancing, which is in a deprived area and does a fantastic job. Because of cuts, it is now having to curtail the number of children under two whom it takes...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (24 Jan 2019)

Tim Loughton: How much VAT will we no longer pay to the EU after Brexit?

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Tim Loughton: I approach this debate with a sense of disappointment, the same disappointment that I felt when I decided to campaign for, and vote for, Brexit. I did so not because I had an ideological phobia of the EU, but because I believed that the EU was going backwards, that the UK’s interests were diverging from it, and that without reform it was doomed to steady but terminal decline. That reform...

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Tim Loughton: .... As for Northern Ireland, the EU has spent the last two years declining to agree a practical arrangement for the border, despite facing the real and present danger of that ending in a no-deal Brexit that would see no handover of £39 billion, and the serious disorder that a no deal could bring in the short term at least. What I do not understand is why on earth the Prime Minister thinks...

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Tim Loughton: ...backstop, transition, waiting-room phase that we are going to be stuck in. For all those reasons, I cannot support a deal that has an open-ended backstop at its heart. We need a clean, global Brexit on terms on which both partners can confidently plot their future beyond 2020 to our mutual benefit—no more kicking into the long grass; no more avoiding taking difficult decisions. It does...

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc.) Bill: Report on civil partnership (26 Oct 2018)

Tim Loughton: ...amended, as I hope will be the case, they will have a lot of work to do in a relatively short space of time, but we now have a timeline, and that work should be a welcome distraction for them from Brexit, so there are upsides as well as downsides. There are four aspects of the Bill, as I have mentioned. Clause 1, which is about marriage registration, seems to have excited the most...

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc.) Bill: Reform of civil partnership (26 Oct 2018)

Tim Loughton: ...that is only if it is in the Queen’s Speech and survives the vagaries of the parliamentary timetable, which is likely to be under huge pressure during the next Session from potential emergency Brexit-related legislation. I am afraid, however, that is just not good enough for me, for campaign supporters—including those with life-limiting conditions who are desperate to formulate a...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Bill: Coroners’ investigations into still-births (18 Jul 2018)

Tim Loughton: ...are often concerns, both here and in the other place, about giving powers to Ministers to make regulations that directly amend primary legislation. We have heard a lot about that in relation to Brexit recently. However, I believe that my clause, as well as making supplementary provisions for regulations, which I will speak about shortly, contains the right safeguards to ensure that the...
