Stephen Doughty: ...see retained for community and cultural use, including music. We also have more classical venues such as St Augustine’s in Penarth. I want to add my support to two crucial issues.

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill (29 Oct 2019)

Stephen Doughty: .... Members of the Youth Parliament visited me in my own constituency a couple of weeks ago and reflected to me the issues that young people want discussed in this election. It is not just about Brexit, which I have spoken about many times—I am clear it will leave our country worse off, less safe and more unstable and I will continue to oppose it and to campaign for a people’s vote; it...

Business of the House (21 Oct 2019)

Stephen Doughty: ...that there are many people in the House, on different sides, who want a deal to go through, or do not want deal to go through, or want to amend things in different ways. There are varied views on Brexit, and they want to be able to table amendments, including to early parts of the Bill, in a proper way. I imagine that some members of the European Research Group might be unhappy with the...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill and Extension Letter (21 Oct 2019)

Stephen Doughty: ...the revelations that will come out in the Bill, which will be published shortly.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Stephen Doughty: The hon. Gentleman and I obviously disagree on the Brexit issue, but he would surely accept that since that point, we have had a general election where the Government lost their majority, and the Government have further lost their majority during that time. That is part of democracy. Given that the Prime Minister found time to vote in the last Division—we all saw him scuttling off down the...

Prorogation (Disclosure of Communications) (9 Sep 2019)

Stephen Doughty: .... That goes to the heart of this motion. This is about trust in a Government who cannot be trusted, it is about our constituents’ lives and the issues that matter to them, which go well beyond Brexit, and it is about the national security and safety of this country.

Stephen Doughty: ...thinks that we were all born yesterday, but we are not going to fall for trickery over a dissolution motion which has already been sought and which would allow him to crash us out with a no-deal Brexit before 31 October.

G7 Summit (3 Sep 2019)

Stephen Doughty: The Prime Minister has made a number of wild and unsubstantiated claims about the negotiations. Can I ask him directly: did the UK’s chief Brexit negotiator, Frost, in a Tuesday 27 August EU subcommittee meeting, link the rationale for talks with the EU article 50 taskforce to “domestic political handling reasons”? Yes or no?

Department for International Development (1 Jul 2019)

Stephen Doughty: I very much hope that, whatever happens on Brexit, we will be contributing to those European programmes that have been so well regarded. Does my hon. Friend agree that one of the crucial things about having DFID as a separate Department with a Cabinet-rank Secretary of State has been our ability to influence and shape global institutions? Having a Secretary of State going to World Bank board...

ST David’S Day (28 Feb 2019)

Stephen Doughty: The right hon. Gentleman does not appear to have heard the warnings from organisations and businesses across the spectrum.

That is happening in our crucial and brilliant university in our city.

Leaving the Eu: Economic Impact of Proposed Deal (20 Feb 2019)

Stephen Doughty: ...are already being felt. I have spoken to businesses in my constituency that have gone from profit to loss and others that have cut investment.

Ministers know that no deal would be a catastrophe. They...

Business of the House (Today): No Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (16 Jan 2019)

Stephen Doughty: My right hon. Friend the Leader of the Opposition is absolutely right to call for a general election today, because it is not only the Government’s record on Brexit that is at stake tonight. Let me ask the Prime Minister a direct question: is she really saying that her record on policing and crime is one that she is willing to stand on? We have seen more than 20,000 police officers cut...
