Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Oct 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: ...election. In Wales we have a simple choice: we can back our country by voting Plaid Cymru or be let down once again by one of these deeply divided Westminster parties that offer nothing but more Brexit chaos. Will the Prime Minister be honest for once with Wales: there is only one way out of the chaos, isn’t there, and that is to remain in the European Union?

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (PROGRAMME) (22 Oct 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Can you explain to me and to people outside, now that the Government have chosen to pause legislation and, by doing that, to extend the Brexit process—[Interruption.]

Prime Minister’s Statement (19 Oct 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: ...this Prime Minister. He has refused to share the impact assessments, and he revealed this 535-page legal text for us to comprehend only today. How could Plaid Cymru ever support his billionaires’ Brexit?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Withdrawal Agreement (4 Sep 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: ...from the people and no mandate from Parliament. Is the Secretary of State proud of being complicit in his Administration’s attempt at pushing through an anti-democratic, damaging version of Brexit by silencing Welsh MPs who are representing our nation’s best interests?

Priorities for Government (25 Jul 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Diolch yn fawr, Lefarydd. Data shows that the Prime Minister faces a binary choice: delivering Brexit on 31 October or maintaining his grip over the four nations of the United Kingdom. He can indulge in bombast and gesticulation all he likes, but the facts are irrevocable, so can he confirm to me, which is his heart’s desire: leaving the European Union or retaining the United Kingdom? He...

20 Years of Devolution (11 Jul 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: ...Wales deserves a world-class Parliament and a Senedd that makes decisions in the best interests of the country, not in the best interests of the Labour party. With the impending threat of a no-deal Brexit and the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) as Prime Minister, change is more vital than ever. Brexit has shone a pitiless light on the inadequacies of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: EU Withdrawal Agreement: Welsh Economy (26 Jun 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: The Secretary of State is easy about a no-deal Brexit, which threatens to create a perfect storm for sheep farmers in Wales—and his Government are going to have to own it. Tariffs of 46% are set to kick in on 31 October, to coincide exactly with the season when mountain lambs come to market for export. There is a mart in Bala on 31 October. Will he join me there and tell farmers to their...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: EU Withdrawal Agreement: Welsh Economy (26 Jun 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: ..., then. He talks up the threadbare benefits of his insular Union while denigrating the real rewards of the European Union. The majority of Tory party members would sacrifice the United Kingdom for Brexit. Will he therefore tell me which is closest to his heart—his beloved Brexit, on which his career depends, or his precious Union?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Jun 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: ...was a vision of things to come: of razzle dazzle concealing the reality of sovereignty reduced to sycophancy. Some 68% of Welsh exports go to the EU. Only 14% of Welsh exports go to the US. Post-Brexit, the British Government will have to choose which deal to strike. Which deal would the Minister prioritise?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Welsh Seafood (9 May 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: ...every year. Have the Welsh Government made any specific representations to Ministers to ensure that our fishermen do not face tariffs of 20% on exports to the crucial South Korean market after Brexit? Will he meet with me to discuss the importance of the seafood industry to Wales’s coastal economy?

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

Liz Saville-Roberts: It is an honour to follow the hon. Member for Taunton Deane (Rebecca Pow). Another day, another Brexit vote, which is not quite the Brexit vote that we need and does not quite have the numbers that it needs to win. It does not quite give constituents, companies or our four countries the certainty that they require, yet here we are again. The British state is beset with a Tory Westminster...

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

Liz Saville-Roberts: ...if Wales leaves Europe because of Labour Members, Labour fiefdom in Wales is at an end. If Labour abandons the interests of Wales, Wales will abandon Labour. This House, at the behest of both the Brexiteering Unionist parties has so far failed to make any decisions about our future relationship with the European Union. The blame is at their door. We have suggested ways forward to marshal...

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (12 Mar 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: deal, given that it will come with the uncertainty of being out of the single market and customs union, damaging the Welsh economy? The no-deal scenario is worse. Many of us can now talk about Brexit almost on auto-pilot, but it is deceitful to tell people who no longer want to discuss this that the Prime Minister’s deal will take Brexit off the table. It is deceitful, it is harmful...

Northern Ireland Backstop (19 Feb 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: The Solicitor General seeks to justify the problem that is Brexit by insisting that the backstop is the problem. I understand that he wants to sympathise with the manufacturing communities in Swindon, Wales and elsewhere that are waking up to job losses, but it is difficult because he is in the Government. Given the evidence, how can the Government, abetted by the Labour Front-Bench team,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (29 Jan 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: I am proud that my name is on amendments (o), (g), (b) and (j). We also support amendments (a) and (i), but not amendment (n). That is because the Brexiteers’ modest proposal to the problem of Ireland is Swiftian in its grotesquery, its historical ignorance and its single, 360°, all-encompassing blind spot. In June 2016, the Prime Minister, in a last-ditch attempt to win the referendum,...

Leaving the EU (21 Jan 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: The Prime Minister knows that farming is integral to Welsh heritage. It is the beating heart of our rural economy. She must also understand that when she humours the idea of a no-deal Brexit, she freezes the heart’s blood of our communities. When I meet Welsh farmers this week, on what grounds can I possibly assure them that Westminster defends their interests, given that the Prime Minister...

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

Liz Saville-Roberts: ...of the Prime Minister or the virtues of no deal. I thought that something had happened last night, but the pantomime points-scoring is continuing in this place. Last night I voted against the Brexit deal and, in doing so, I voted for the Prime Minister to change course. I voted for averting the damaging consequences of her deal. It is now time to move on to a real solution to this Brexit...

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

Liz Saville-Roberts: ...much aware, as a member of a small party who usually has very little time to speak, how valuable the time we have is. I conclude by saying that the House of Commons has effectively taken control of Brexit policy. It defeated—we should remember this; this is not just about a tit-for-tat on both sides—the British Government’s deeply deficient deal last night. We must now find a way to...

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

Liz Saville-Roberts: Has not the time come for the country to see that the Tory party—not by its words, but by its actions—is now enacting a policy of moving us towards a no-deal Brexit?

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [9th Allotted Day] (15 Jan 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: ...spirit of acknowledging another vision, a vision of the respect implicit in the sweet moderation of compromise—sadly, such politics are beyond her. Her gaze has a way of swivelling back to the Brexiteers, fossilised in the strata of her own party. The rest of us, and especially the voices of Wales, have been invisible and unheeded. Here is a concept of parliamentary democracy in the age...
