Prorogation of Parliament — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (9 Sep 2019)

Helen Hayes: normal ahead of a Queen’s Speech, and that only three days of parliamentary time are being lost; we would normally break for conference recess anyway.

History Curriculum: Migration — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (18 Jun 2019)

Leaving the European Union — [James Gray in the Chair] (1 Apr 2019)

Helen Hayes: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray.

Leaving the European Union — [James Gray in the Chair] (1 Apr 2019)

It was the Prime Minister who took the UK into a snap general election in June 2017 and sought a mandate from the British people for her own explicitly hard interpretation of Brexit.

Leaving the European Union — [James Gray in the Chair] (1 Apr 2019)

Helen Hayes: I simply say to the right hon. Gentleman that only the leave campaign was found by the Electoral Commission to have broken the law. That is the point.

If they will not do that, and we stand at the edge of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Feb 2019)

Helen Hayes: The Prime Minister previously committed to a meaningful vote on her Brexit deal but had to be forced by the courts to hold it.

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

Progress on EU Negotiations (22 Nov 2018)

Helen Hayes: The Prime Minister has spent much of the past two years wrangling with her own MPs and allowing the hard Brexiteer tail to wag the Tory dog.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (1 Nov 2018)

Helen Hayes: ...they end up being the first port of call. Yet the Chancellor announced not a penny of extra funding for neighbourhood policing or for the criminal justice system.
