Major Incident in Essex (28 Oct 2019)

Priti Patel: ...of the routes that have been taken. I have no doubt that, over time, we will hear much more, and a lot more information will come out in due course. The right hon. Lady specifically asked about Brexit and security co-operation. I would just say to the House that the way in which we can absolutely ensure that we have the strongest possible co-operation is by having a deal. That is exactly...

Written Ministerial Statements — Home Office: Immigration (4 Sep 2019)

Priti Patel: After Brexit, the Government will take back control by introducing a new, fairer immigration system that prioritises skills and what people can contribute to the UK, rather than where they come from.

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

Priti Patel: This debate is quite extraordinary. There is no doubt that the British people feel anger, resentment and a great deal of disappointment towards this House and politicians over Brexit.

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

Priti Patel: implement the withdrawal agreement, because seeking to amend the legislation would risk putting the UK being in breach of our international obligations.

That is not what the country voted for, when 17.4...

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

Priti Patel: ...promises to the people are now being forced to make a difficult choice between taking a risk with this motion or taking the risk of giving others in the House who simply do not want to deliver Brexit or the commitments we stood on to get us here in the first place the opportunity to sabotage Brexit. That is the problem we all face, and it is a difficult challenge. I do not take the...

Transport Infrastructure: Essex — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (6 Mar 2019)

Priti Patel: ...hear that all the time as Members of Parliament, but it is no good just sitting and agreeing with my constituents and businesses; we need to put our foot on the gas and do something. In debates on Brexit, the future relationship, supply chains and border checks, we need to ensure that we also look at how our inadequate infrastructure is hindering basic supply chains in our county and in...

Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Feb 2019)

Priti Patel: ...hon. Friend the Member for South Leicestershire (Alberto Costa) for his amendment (b). He spoke with great distinction and clarity, demonstrating that this House can be united on such an issue as Brexit.

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Priti Patel: ...go in terms of our place in the world. Amid the debates that we are currently having, the rhetoric now, the wider discussions of a second referendum or even, as some may say, attempts to block Brexit, and amid the stories in the media and a continuation of fear and scare-stories, the essence of choice—the choice that people wanted to see—is being lost. Of course, there are a wide range...

Agriculture Bill (10 Oct 2018)

Priti Patel: ...that producers in other EU countries are flouting the rules. We should get on the side of our pig farmers and bat for them on the challenges that they face.

I welcome this important Bill for so many reasons, and we now have the...

Asylum Accommodation Contracts: Economic Growth: East of England (10 Oct 2018)

Priti Patel: ..., we need to look at slashing air passenger duty; it is a cost that affects passengers as well as businesses.

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Priti Patel: ...of the UK. We propose putting into law as a safeguard what the Government have said they want.

Grenfell Update: The Economy (22 Mar 2018)

Priti Patel: ...our economic strategy. As well as focusing on our domestic reforms, in any debate about the economy we must look forward to our bright future as a free and independent nation when we leave the EU. Brexit should serve as a time of national renewal. We are seeing now more than ever—my right hon. Friend the Chancellor mentioned this in his statement last week—that this will be the start...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (15 Nov 2017)

Priti Patel: ...They outline pragmatically the steps that need to be taken to prevent a legislative vacuum. They provide important certainty to businesses and the public. They should help to ensure that the great Brexit trade deal that we hope to secure—and we will secure—for our country can be agreed with the EU on exit with regulatory equivalence in place in the right quarters. Of course, because we...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Topical Questions (18 Oct 2017)

Priti Patel: The hon. Lady is right to point out that we make contributions through other organisations, particularly the European Union. After Brexit, we will ensure that that money is not only spent accountably and in a transparent way, but doing exactly what it is there to do: serving the world’s poorest and providing relief to those people who desperately need that aid support.

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Africa: Overseas Trade (16 Nov 2016)
