Prisons and Probation (14 May 2019)

Victoria Prentis: Oh no, he is not going anywhere—this is a long-term sentence! I have the highest regard for the current Minister. He has done more than his fair share of heavy lifting in the impasse on Brexit. I offer him the following suggestions with affection, but they are urgent, and I wish him to do them immediately. No. 1, we must accept that diversion from custody is the only answer for sentences...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Victoria Prentis: ...rights. There is clearly a lot more work to do, but it is a fair start, and it is where we are at this minute. I say to Conservative Members that there is a real risk that those who want a harder Brexit will end up with no Brexit at all. As a democrat, I do not believe that that would be the right outcome—although let me say that if there is a second referendum, I will campaign with...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Victoria Prentis: ...much more than both. I ask all Members, setting aside both ideology and pride for a minute, if they can, to think about their constituents and the jobs that will be at risk if we head for a no-deal Brexit, which would be a complete disaster.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Victoria Prentis: .... Member for Burnley (Julie Cooper), but I disagree with her. This is a great Budget. I am glad that the Chancellor has set aside substantial amounts to prepare for all eventualities as we approach Brexit. The Banbury constituency’s vote in the referendum was the closest in the country; by 500 people, we voted to leave. Now, I hear a great deal of unity locally over the need to get on...

Exiting the European Union: Support for Farmers (2 Nov 2017)

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Victoria Prentis: constituency will be unable to give birth close to home. In Banbury, Bicester and the villages that I represent, we concentrate on doing the right thing. Our companies adapt to the challenges of Brexit. We are building five times more houses than the national average. We need healthcare that is kind, safe and close to home. The draft patient safety Bill will strengthen our resources to...
