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

Paul Scully: .... We would like to see this dealt with. If the UK is leaving, it should leave on the 31st of October.” Pretty well every other debate that we have had over the last three years has boiled down to Brexit. We have failed over the last three years. What we are asking for by moving the Benn Bill, not proroguing Parliament and not having a general election continues our failure. Too many...

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

Paul Scully: ...Opposition Members want. However, 14 October has been determined as the date for the Queen’s Speech because we want to set out our domestic agenda. We want to set out our ambitions apart from Brexit over the next 12 months. It is so important that we do so; it is what members of the public are crying out for. Question put, That this House has considered e-petitions 269157 and 237487...

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

Paul Scully: ...the Queen to prorogue Parliament suspending the current parliamentary session until 2nd April 2019”— that is clearly out of date now— “to prevent any attempts by parliamentarians to thwart Brexit on 29th March 2019. Preparations for no-deal/WTO will continue. The Prime Minister’s deal has been rejected. No further deal is available from the EU. Remaining in the EU is not an...

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

Paul Scully: ...recesses, to the angst of several hon. Members, but what did we do during those sittings? We considered statutory instruments on the Floor of the House, because there was not enough business about Brexit coming from the Opposition. I remember walking around this place and seeing Opposition Members with their coats on, leaving early. If they had wanted to get involved in debates, and to add...

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

Paul Scully: ...around me acting in the most stupid way.” I blame people on both sides of the argument equally; I am an equal opportunity critic. We should be talking about how we leave, not whether we leave. Brexit is a big issue that divides parties, communities and families. None the less, we were asked a relatively simple question: do we leave or remain? Leave won, and it is not beyond the wit of...

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

Paul Scully: ...certainly, to boredom. There is one way to sort it out. We can sit here contemplating our navels, or we can go out and speak to the people. We can have a general election, in which we can discuss Brexit and engage 70 million people, not just 650. To me, that is democracy in action. Some hon. Members might say, “Let’s have a second referendum.” There are clearly issues with that. It...

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

Paul Scully: ... 14 October for a Queen’s Speech allows the new Prime Minister to set out his bold, ambitious domestic vision for this country, which people are absolutely screaming out for. They want us to get Brexit done, so that they can talk about what affects them daily: their hospital, their children’s schools and their safety at home and on the streets. Having more policeman and infrastructure,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU (19 Jun 2019)

Paul Scully: My right hon. Friend spoke about the £100 million being given to the Scottish Government to tackle Brexit. Will he confirm that Scottish nationalists have chosen to spend £10 million of it on plugging holes in their own budget?

Leaving the European Union — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Feb 2019)

Paul Scully: ...process is finished. Yes, the result was 52% versus 48%. We have to work out how to heal the divide—in Parliament, but most importantly, out there in the country—and ensure that we can secure a Brexit that works for everyone. With regard to securing that Brexit, the petitioners and the 116,000 people who signed the petition can rest assured: the Government and a lot of Government...

Leaving the European Union — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Feb 2019)

Paul Scully: Exactly: we return to it. I will read the petition, entitled “Brexit re article 50 it must not be suspended/stopped under any circumstances”, into Hansard so that it can have its full say: “The full details are well known to everyone the media has covered it fully, the British people MUST be given the Brexit they voted for anything else is not acceptable to the British public ARTICLE 50...

Leaving the EU — [David Hanson in the Chair] (14 Jan 2019)

Paul Scully: ...have suffered harassment, bullying and worse. It is possible to engage constructively, passionately and respectfully with people with polar opposite views. When I was on platforms arguing for Brexit, people said to me, “Well, what does your Brexit look like?” I would say, “Actually, I can tell you what mine looks like, but that precludes you from having any say in it whatsoever if...

Leaving the EU — [David Hanson in the Chair] (14 Jan 2019)

Paul Scully: ...pm on a Monday is the slot that is allocated every week, so there is not a lot of scope for flexibility. The Petitions Committee meets in private, but one of the questions that we often ask about Brexit petitions is whether, because we debate the matter so often in the House, we are just duplicating debates. We try to give people a voice as much as we can, but I take his point.

Leaving the EU — [David Hanson in the Chair] (14 Jan 2019)

Paul Scully: ...a further referendum on leaving the EU, and 226509 and 236261 relating to not leaving the EU. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hanson. The list of e-petitions shows that Brexit still exercises our nation. If I may be indulged—this may take longer than the rest of my speech—I will read the text of the petitions, so that we know exactly what we are talking about. We...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Jan 2019)

Paul Scully: More Londoners voted to leave the EU than voted for the current Mayor of London, who is swanning around Europe talking about Brexit rather than his responsibilities, such as crime, housing and transport. Does my right hon. Friend agree that if he insists on being a Brexit diva, he should concentrate on telling his side to vote for this deal—[Interruption.]

EU Membership: Second Referendum — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (3 Dec 2018)

Paul Scully: .... It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. As of about an hour ago, the petition had 122,320 signatures. It follows a number of petitions that we have considered on Brexit over the last couple of years. Recently, we debated having a second referendum—I cannot remember how many signatures that got. For the purpose of Hansard, I will read the full wording of the...

EU Membership: Second Referendum — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (3 Dec 2018)

Paul Scully: ...we get out in the best way possible and in as orderly a way as possible. I understand that 48% of people did not want to go and that we want to be able to trade with European Union partners beyond Brexit. That is why we need the whole gamut, rather than me sitting in my corner saying, “Yay, I won—fantastic! I’m off now.” That is not realistic. Inevitably, there will be complexities...

EU Membership: Second Referendum — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (3 Dec 2018)

Paul Scully: ...will determine when we can crack on and implement those trade deals, but we will be able to start negotiating them right from the off. I have to say to the friend I referred to, who is bored of Brexit, that we are only halfway through the process, so he has another couple of years to go while we agree our future relationship. Let us not be distracted by a people’s vote—a second...

House of Lords: Abolition — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (18 Jun 2018)

Paul Scully: ...some of the comments made during the debate. Lord Bilimoria said, when considering amendment 49, that “Thanks to this amendment, Parliament would have the ability to stop the train crash that is Brexit.”—[Official Report, House of Lords, 30 April 2018; Vol. 790, c. 1854.] It is not appropriate for the upper House to thwart the will of the people and to get us to consider what are...

House of Lords: Abolition — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (18 Jun 2018)

Paul Scully: These are obviously unusual circumstances for all manner of reasons. Brexit and the two-year Session are incredibly unusual. I have talked a lot about the fact that, in my view, the Lords have overstepped their remit. The petitioner is not talking about the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill, so I will park that after this point. We need to look at the Bill as a whole. The Lords may be...

Orkambi and Cystic Fibrosis — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (19 Mar 2018)

Paul Scully: ...remarkable achievement—the petitioners to get 114,000 signatures within 10 days. I have been on the Petitions Committee since its start and, short of having a go at Donald Trump and a few of the Brexit debates, this is one of the most potent petitions, and one of the more productive.
