The Economy (24 Oct 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: ...I remember from when: it was from when I was a child listening to “Jackanory.” This is exactly the same: story time. The previous Prime Minister published a proper economic assessment of her Brexit deal; why will this current Prime Minister not do the same? For heaven’s sake, just answer the question.

Foreign Affairs Committee: IR35 Tax Reforms (4 Apr 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: ...the credit crunch. She is of the opinion that companies like hers helped to bolster the economy during that period and are now battling uncertainty, which is not helped by the issues surrounding Brexit. Kaye believes that the administration and lack of clarity on off-payroll legislation will make it either very difficult or untenable to continue her business. She believes that there are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Prince of Wales’s Investiture Regalia: Permanent Home (3 Apr 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: ...subject, but those who are keen on it would describe themselves as patriots. Will the Secretary of State for Wales describe himself as a real patriot by ruling out a disastrous no-deal Brexit, and will he show his commitment to that?

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: ...quite extraordinary happens, and I am aware that when I vote against that deal, I will vote against it with some who are doing so for very different reasons. I have no truck with the ghosts of Brexit Secretaries and Foreign Secretaries past who act as commentators and who, despite the sunny uplands of which they speak, refuse to accept that where we are now has anything to do with them. As...

Leaving the European Union — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (19 Nov 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: My hon. Friend mentioned technical experts on Brexit. If the past two and a half years have proven anything, it is that what technical experts on Brexit think does not mean very much. Does my hon. Friend mean that it is now absolutely imperative that, one way or another, the people of our country decide what happens next?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (31 Oct 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for City of Durham (Dr Blackman-Woods) and to contribute to this Budget debate. I wish to focus my remarks on three main aspects: Brexit, the north Wales economy and the voluntary sector. The Financial Times has already referred to the Budget as a general election Budget. I do not know whether that is true, but it is most certainly a...

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: Over the past few weeks, great concern has been expressed by major manufacturing companies, by farmers and by the service sector in north Wales over the Government’s approach to Brexit. Those people do not have a political axe to grind. They are deeply concerned about jobs and about our economy. What confidence can we have that the Government and the Prime Minister will listen to them,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Public Life: Intimidation (16 May 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: ...they are on the political spectrum. Can the Minister tell us what he proposes to do about the Daily Mail calling several of his colleagues “traitors” when they spoke up with their views on Brexit?

Brexit Deal: Referendum — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (11 Dec 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: ...a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David, and a real privilege to lead this important debate on behalf of the Petitions Committee. This place is not short of a debate or two on Brexit—in fact, the Prime Minister is making a statement as we speak—but this debate is rather different from all the others because it is based on petitions signed by a very large number of...

Brexit Deal: Referendum — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (11 Dec 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: ...petition. I always think it is healthy for such petitions to be tabled. These are part of a very important debate. The first petition is not dissimilar to another petition that calls for the final Brexit deal to be put to a referendum, with revoking article 50 as an option. On the other side of the coin, there is a petition that calls for the rejection of all demands from the EU for...

Brexit Deal: Referendum — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (11 Dec 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: ...and extensive piece of research. I am grateful to my hon. Friend for raising it. One of the strongest arguments for holding a referendum lies in the gap between the promises that were made on what Brexit would be and what has in fact happened in the meantime. Allow me to quote the Foreign Secretary—I like quoting him, ever since he wrote in a newspaper article three days after the...

Brexit Deal: Referendum — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (11 Dec 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: ...test for British banks, the Bank modelled a 4.7% fall in output, a 27% devaluation of the pound against the dollar, and a devaluation of a third in house prices. Indeed, what if—to quote the Brexit Secretary—some of our key decision makers have just “slightly misspoke”? One minute the first part of a deal seems to have been done, and the next we are told that nothing is agreed...

Brexit Deal: Referendum — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (11 Dec 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: ...lordships considered the Government’s European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill on Report and Third Reading. The archbishop disagreed with those who said that the process for securing Brexit was simple. He stated: “It would be dangerous, unwise and wrong to reduce the substance of the terms on which we exit the European Union to the result of a binary yes/no choice taken last...

Brexit Deal: Referendum — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (11 Dec 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: It will have been going on for rather longer. Some people I had communications from seemed to think that, because I am leading this debate, I would have a role in the final Brexit negotiations. That is a nice idea, and I shared my thoughts with them in some cases. I think that multi-option is very important, because it would bring greater clarity. When I saw the discussion on multi-option, my...

Brexit Deal: Referendum — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (11 Dec 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: ...on the final deal than the archbishop was in his speech, he made his case powerfully. I have no doubt that in this House today and on other days, many different viewpoints will be expressed on Brexit issues. I am sure that will be the case in communities the length and breadth of the United Kingdom. One thing that I am far less confident about is that there will be a healing of the...

Backbench Business: Rural Economy of Wales (28 Nov 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: ..., including those in Wales, and to EU consumers. That shows that the future of the Welsh rural economy is inextricably linked to what happens in, and how the UK Government and others deal with, the Brexit negotiations. My right hon. Friend the Member for Delyn made the point well about beef and lamb exports. We also need to note that farmers in Wales must never become a bargaining chip. If...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (23 Nov 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: ...: “We have less and less money to spend every year”. Yet as we hear about these great concerns, we recognise that we are now giving away £3 billion to pay for the Government’s failure in the Brexit negotiations—they never put that on the Brexit bus did they! UK national debt is now of staggering proportions. According to figures from the Office for National Statistics, debt that...

Proportional Representation — [James Gray in the Chair] (30 Oct 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: talking to those who were unsure how to vote, much of my time was spent talking to people who desperately did not want a Tory MP or one of those sheep who would come here to vote for a hard Brexit. I hope I have managed to provide them with good representation on that count. Really and truly, most people—excluding certain Government Members—know that there is much wrong with our...

Debate on the Address: Education and Local Services (27 Jun 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: ...the penny-pinching, small state ideologues of the hard right, who always have their way, must have its day. No speech in this Parliament would be complete without a message for the Government on Brexit. Let us have a Brexit that works for the whole nation, not just for the hard right of the Tory party. If we end up with no deal and without proper votes, we are going to be mighty cross.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: Effect on Wales (26 Apr 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: ...on listening to Welsh farmers, will he tell us why the Government are refusing to agree with the Farmers Union of Wales? Why will powers on agriculture not be devolved to the Welsh Government post-Brexit? Will he come clean on that?
