Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Consular Support: UK Nationals Overseas (5 Nov 2019)

Andrew Percy: ...about with regard to a permanent consular post in Atlantic Canada not only to support the very many Brits who travel there every year, but to make better use of our trading relationship post Brexit?

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill: Early parliamentary general election (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: ...result. We have heard some of that in some of the speeches this afternoon. What has gone on since that election in 2017, in which the overwhelming majority of us were re-elected to deliver Brexit? I accept that the SNP Members had a different position, and they have consistently followed the line they took in the general election, but that is not the case for most of the rest of us. What...

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill: Early parliamentary general election (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: If the hon. Gentleman will give me a moment to let me finish my point, I will then give way to him. We have seen consistently throughout that people who did not vote for Brexit and are on the other side of the debate consistently tell Brexit voters what it is that we voted for, and they think they have the right to interpret what—

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill: Early parliamentary general election (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: That is exactly the point. It is saying that the people who voted remain knew full well what they were doing, but Brexit voters were misled, they were a bit daft, they were lied to and, uniquely, they could not see through it.

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill: Early parliamentary general election (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: Indeed, that is absolutely true, but, as I have said, in fairness to SNP Members, their position on wanting to cancel Brexit is at least a consistent one, and one on which they stood in the 2017 general election. We also heard this in the intervention by the hon. Member for Wrexham (Ian C. Lucas), who again suggested that there was some sort of fiddling in favour of leave. This is why this...

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill: Early parliamentary general election (29 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: I am sorry, but the hon. Gentleman has done nothing to deliver on his 2017 election manifesto since that vote, which was to deliver Brexit. It is a prime example of why this Parliament is so broken. Never mind the £1 million that was funnelled to various remain groups towards the end of the referendum campaign; never mind the millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money used to campaign for...

Early Parliamentary General Election (28 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: ...they did not trust this Parliament to deliver it. They said, “We won’t get it. They’ll never let us leave.” The five Conservatives out of the 10 MPs in my region might have voted to deliver Brexit, but is not the truth of it that the Labour MPs across my region, bar one or two examples, are never going to vote to leave the European Union, sadly proving right my constituents who...

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

Andrew Percy: When I was re-elected at the 2017 election, I and all the MPs for surrounding constituencies, including the Labour MPs, were elected on a very clear pledge to deliver Brexit. Can my right hon. Friend assure me that he will not tolerate any attempt to get a second referendum? A second referendum is about one thing: it is about giving backword on the solemn pledge we gave in the 2017 election...

Withdrawal Agreement: Proposed Changes (7 Oct 2019)

Andrew Percy: ...a reason to vote against what the Government bring forward, because their real aim is to stop us leaving. Is it not the ultimate irony that the people who are giving the biggest croggy to a no-deal Brexit are the very people who repeatedly stand up and tell us that we have to vote for compromise but then vote against any compromise—any deal—that is put on the table?

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

Andrew Percy: ...this perverse alliance of people who never wanted us to leave the European Union—remainers—voting with the minority of people on the Conservative Benches who actively want us to have a no-deal Brexit. They have trotted through the Lobby together, while people like me who came into this House in 2010 are absolutely determined to get us out of the European Union. We have done exactly...

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

Andrew Percy: ...European Free Trade Association or the European economic area. Every single time, the same MPs trot up and say they support the referendum result but when it comes to the vote they vote to block Brexit, so what is going to be different this time?

UK Steel Industry (9 Jul 2019)

Andrew Percy: ...just turn around, as some people think, and say, “We are going to use UK steel in all Government contracts.” That would be illegal under UK and EU law, and—for those who think that a no-deal Brexit is the answer to all this—it would even be illegal under World Trade Organisation rules. Having used half my speech to slightly disagree with my friend the hon. Member for Rotherham, I...

Secondary School Standards: East Cleveland: Intimidation in Public Life — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 May 2019)

Andrew Percy: ...Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire made, that the unintended consequence of continued abuse is its potential to distance Members of Parliament from their constituents and the public even more. Brexit is, of course, a particular source of such abuse, and one tweet that I received recently contained a very rude word. Following an appearance about Brexit on “Brexitcast”, one of the...

British Steel (21 May 2019)

Andrew Percy: ...with us over the past week or so. Certainty is very important to the industry. That is why, with some reservations, I have consistently supported the Prime Minister’s deal, to end the Brexit uncertainty, and I will continue to do so. I hope that other colleagues will also do that, as British Steel has asked it of Members of Parliament. Will the Minister confirm that, if the company were...

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

Andrew Percy: I have the utmost respect for my right hon. Friend, but I will be opposing his amendment. Is it not somewhat strange that the very people who voted last night to kill Brexit for 29 March this year are now signed up to voting, and will vote this evening, to delay Brexit? This will only be the first delay, of course, because there will potentially be others in future. We are in a very strange...

Exiting the European Union (Agriculture): Antisemitism in Modern Society (20 Feb 2019)

Andrew Percy: ...Bebb), who made an excellent speech. We have been great friends since I made a speech here against tuition fees in 2010. He told me I was wrong then and has not stopped telling me I am wrong about Brexit, but we have been great friends even since, and on this issue, as on so many others, we have worked together closely. I join him in paying tribute to my constituency neighbour the hon....

Holocaust Memorial Day (24 Jan 2019)

Andrew Percy: ...and the right. In recent days and weeks, I have been appalled to see references made to the Jewish ancestry of Mr Speaker or other colleagues. They might have a different perspective from me on the Brexit debate, but to have their Jewish ancestry brought into it was truly disgusting. Those who did that do not speak for people like me, and the near 77% of my constituents who voted leave in...

Progress on EU Negotiations (22 Nov 2018)

Andrew Percy: ...Union, and two things are very clear from talking to them this weekend. First, they are sick of remainers telling them that they did not know what they voted for, and they are also tired of some Brexiteers telling them what they will accept in our exit from the European Union. I encourage the Prime Minister to press on as she is doing. Secondly, and more importantly, perhaps, for where...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Andrew Percy: ...figures for each year. That is what countries such as Canada, Australia or New Zealand manage to do. I am sick of hearing the suggestion—we have heard it again today—that people who voted for Brexit only did so because of immigration, and that that was only because they were racist. I am also sick of hearing the suggestion—we have heard this today as well—that they did not know...

Uk/EU Future Economic Partnership (5 Mar 2018)

Andrew Percy: Last week, Siemens announced a £200-million investment that will create 700 jobs in Goole. That proves the value of the economy of the north, so as the Prime Minister negotiates for Brexit, as well as obviously looking out for the interests of Northern Ireland, the City and Scotland, will she look out for the interests of the north? That requires approaching this process with flexibility,...
