Cabinet Office: Strength of the Union (23 Oct 2019)

Chris Matheson: ...so much of 2016 riding around the country in—providing the SNP with sackfuls of ammunition for its campaign promoting a referendum on independence. Why are the Government more concerned about Brexit than they are about maintaining the integrity of the United Kingdom?

International Trade: Topical Questions (17 Oct 2019)

Chris Matheson: Will Ministers assure us that, in their desperation to sign any trade deal to justify their Brexit policy, they will not give a green light, or a nod and a wink, to President Bolsonaro to continue the destruction of the Amazon rain forest?

Debate on the Address: Public Services (16 Oct 2019)

Chris Matheson: ...people to show ID when they vote. That is simply voter suppression, and I will oppose it. The Queen’s Speech started with, and much of the debate this week has been dominated by, the madness of Brexit. I remain convinced that the best deal available is the one that we currently have as a member of the European Union. Any Brexit would have a worse effect on the economy and our ability to...

Brexit Negotiations (3 Oct 2019)

Chris Matheson: ...not accept that a customs post that is sited 20 miles away from a border still represents a hard border and therefore goes against the Good Friday agreement? Why is he willing to prioritise Brexit against the Good Friday agreement?

Business of the House: Principles of Democracy and the Rights of the Electorate (26 Sep 2019)

Chris Matheson: ...: this Parliament was elected in 2017 because the Conservative party tried to cut and run by calling a snap general election. This Parliament accurately reflects the divisions in the country on Brexit, and it is doing the job it was returned to do—my hon. Friend the Member for Dulwich and West Norwood referenced that point. Although the Minister referred in his opening speech to the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Strengthening the Union (10 Jul 2019)

Chris Matheson: ...hon. Gentleman, but these answers are a disgrace. While he is giving us these platitudes, both Tory leadership contenders are willing to sell the rest of the country down by prioritising a no-deal Brexit over the rest of the Union. Will the Minister now give us the assurance that he has previously given, that no deal will cause potentially fatal damage to the Union and that he will fight...

Public Bill Committee: Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (30 Jan 2019)

Chris Matheson: ...so that they can be agreed or disagreed to by the House as soon as possible. That urgency has not gone away, and we will continue to press for that. My other point is that, as we head towards Brexit, the Government and the House are considering all the legislation, including secondary legislation, required for either a Brexit shaped by a deal or—dare I say it?—no-deal. The amount of...

Public Bill Committee: Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (23 Jan 2019)

Chris Matheson: ...point: he says that the Government are now experts in running down the clock. We have long feared that that is the status of this Committee, as well as—obviously—wider events in relation to the Brexit deal or no-deal scenario. However, my concern this week is about the capacity of Departments to deal with matters such as the one before the Committee. The Minister has told us that we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Electrification (10 Jan 2019)

Chris Matheson: It strikes me that a lot of official capacity is currently being sucked out of the Department by preparations for a no-deal Brexit, and that is slowing up projects that should be pushing ahead. What progress is being made on plans for electrification of the Chester to Crewe and north Wales line or, if not electrification, on the procurement of the electro-diesel trains that are the next best...

Public Bill Committee: Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (9 Jan 2019)

Chris Matheson: ...forward the proposals for the boundaries, so that we can make that decision one way or the other. The right hon. Gentleman is correct that the House is dealing with a lot of legislation around Brexit at the moment, but that should not be a reason not to proceed with the important task of getting these new boundaries sorted. The credibility of the House depends on that. The delay is...

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

Chris Matheson: ...entirely wrong: the country is more divided than ever under her leadership. After the general election, she might have reached out across the House to find support for the least damaging form of Brexit, although every form of Brexit is damaging. Instead, she chose to tack to the hard right and seek the sole approval of her own Brexit fundamentalists in the ERG. Yet these extremists will...

Public Bill Committee: Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill: Regulations and directions (29 Nov 2018)

Chris Matheson: ...Minister’s attempts at reassurance if this was not part of a process and of a pattern of behaviour by the Government? There have been power grabs and the use of Henry VIII clauses throughout the Brexit process.

Public Bill Committee: Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (28 Nov 2018)

Chris Matheson: ...but in the wider House. I wish her and her family a successful and easy next few months as they prepare for the new addition to their family. The Prime Minister is currently away selling her Brexit deal. She has talked about the need to unify the House and the country, and I have to say that I think she is right. We need something to bring the House back together. I suggest that making...

Public Bill Committee: Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (14 Nov 2018)

Chris Matheson: ...time drafting the orders, which we have been told are particularly complicated, rather than wasting time in this Committee. Of course, among all the noise, the heat, the clamour and the frenzy of Brexit—it is getting more frenzied by the hour, it would seem—the main development this week was the announcement by the Leader of the House that there would be some extra sitting Fridays....

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Leaving the EU: Tax Revenues (6 Nov 2018)

Chris Matheson: The Government’s own figures demonstrate between a 2% and 8% hit on the broader economy after Brexit. Is it not the case that there is no form of Brexit that will not have a massive impact on the public finances and, therefore, on public services?

EU Customs Union and Draft Withdrawal Agreement: Cost (22 Oct 2018)

Chris Matheson: The truth is that this is typical crackpottery by the Brexit extremists on the Conservative Benches, who seem to be running the show over there at the moment. Will the Minister tell us what the effect will be on the aerospace sector and on Airbus next to my constituency of leaving and being outside the customs union, as opposed to remaining in and protecting those jobs?
