Electoral Registration: EU Citizens (25 Apr 2019)

Marsha de Cordova: My constituency is home to thousands of EU citizens. They deserve the right to vote here and every effort should be made to ensure that they can do so. Given the Government’s Brexit shambles, will the Minister now commit to doing one of several things: extending the deadline, but also ensuring that photocopied or scanned documentation will be accepted when people register?

Leaving the Eu: Economic Impact of Proposed Deal (20 Feb 2019)

Marsha de Cordova: It is no secret that the Government’s deal will hit people’s livelihoods and jobs, along with economic growth. All credible economic analysis says that a no-deal Brexit would have a devastating effect. With just 37 days to go, does the Minister agree that we need to get serious and that we need to consider extending article 50?

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

Marsha de Cordova: When I first spoke in the meaningful vote debate, I spoke of the shambles of the Government’s handling of Brexit, of my alarm at the historic mess that was of their making, and of my anger at the contempt with which they had treated the House and the people whom we represent. I spoke of my constituents’ outrage at the turmoil that the Government were inflicting on the economy, and of the...

Exiting the European Union: Meaningful Vote (11 Dec 2018)

Marsha de Cordova: ...more than 18 months, but it is clear to me, as it is to Members across the House, that the behaviour of this Government is unprecedented—unprecedented in their chaotic approach to managing Brexit, unprecedented in their contempt and disregard for Members of this House and the people we represent, unprecedented in their Ministers saying one thing and then going on to do another. At each...

Exiting the European Union: Meaningful Vote (11 Dec 2018)

Marsha de Cordova: ...on extreme poverty? Eight years of her Government’s austerity policies have devastated our communities and devastated disabled people. This Government have no answers to the challenges we face on Brexit or anything else. Their only achievement is to unite people in opposition to them. It is downright shameful that they have pulled the meaningful vote. Parliament must be given a...

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

Marsha de Cordova: ...passionately campaigned for and voted to remain in the 2016 referendum, I have watched for two years with growing alarm at the Government’s shambolic, reckless and irresponsible approach to the Brexit negotiations. In those two years, we have seen the leave campaign promises denied. We have seen dozens of Ministers quit and two Brexit Secretaries come and go. We have seen a Government...

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

Marsha de Cordova: ...power. The people of Battersea need a Government who work for them. They need their rights to be protected, they need investment in the community, and business needs certainty. We need to put this Brexit shambles behind us and that is why I will be voting against the deal.

Progress on EU Negotiations (22 Nov 2018)

Marsha de Cordova: ...’s bluster, this political declaration underlines that 18 months of shambolic negotiations have produced embarrassingly little. Parliament looks set to be asked to vote and agree to a blind Brexit and to a deal that, despite what she claims, does not protect jobs, rights or the economy. When will she wake up to the reality that any deal she brings to the House cannot command the support...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (31 Oct 2018)

Marsha de Cordova: ...NHS is “simply not enough”, according to the Health Foundation. Austerity is not over. According to the Chancellor, even the sticking plasters in the Budget are dependent on the Government’s Brexit shambles not causing a disastrous no deal. The grim truth of austerity is that it fails by not only the standards of social justice, but its own narrow standards. The Chancellor now claims...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (25 Oct 2018)

Marsha de Cordova: It is clear that no deal would be a national disaster and the thousands of EU citizens living in Battersea fear that a no-deal Brexit risks causing personal disaster and their rights to be jeopardised. Groups such as the 3 million have called for the citizens’ rights section of the withdrawal agreement to be ring-fenced so that there is no change to their rights in the event of a no deal....

June European Council (2 Jul 2018)

Marsha de Cordova: Over the past weeks, Airbus, BMW and Siemens have echoed the warning of the trade unions that the Government’s Brexit strategy is putting thousands of jobs at risk. Will the Prime Minister listen to business and to the trade unions, and commit to keeping the UK in a customs union?

Disabled People and Economic Growth (22 Feb 2018)

Marsha de Cordova: ...Statistics recently announced that it was suspending publication of the disability employment rate indefinitely. The motion notes the fact that there will be a disability employment gap after Brexit, and the current gap in the UK is considerably above the European Union average of 21%. That illustrates the extent of the Government’s failure to take meaningful and serious action. In the...
