Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: ...Trade and for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, as well as the Foreign Office, to see how we could encourage some of our British airlines to take on what would no doubt be a lucrative route? Post-Brexit, our ability to increase such communities’ cultural, trade and tourism ties will no doubt determine our nation’s success and enhance our global links. I sincerely hope that the...

Future of DFID — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (27 Feb 2019)

UN Climate Change Conference: Government Response (16 Jan 2019)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: ...and others who tried to block proceedings at COP24, but we need to make sure that we emphasise to them that climate change is connected to issues such as immigration, which are at the fore in the Brexit debate here and in the US, where they are trying to build walls. If we do not help developing nations, such as the Maldives, Bangladesh and others, which will be partially or fully...

Leaving the Eu: No Deal: Leaving the EU: No Deal (19 Dec 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: Many of us, right hon. and hon. Members in this House, are becoming increasingly suspicious that the reason why this Brexit can is being kicked further and further down the road by the Prime Minister is to take us to the eleventh hour, and then hold the British public and parliamentarians in this House to ransom, saying, “It is my deal or no deal.” Does my right hon. and learned Friend...

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

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: ...mislead the British public, is frankly appalling and pathetic? [Interruption.] It is true. It is now alleged on BuzzFeed that the Prime Minister told top EU officials that she intended to pull the Brexit vote 24 hours before she told senior Cabinet members. Does my right hon. Friend agree—

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

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: ...British public. They have reneged on their solemn promise. The House had to force Ministers to change their minds and release the legal opinion. What an utterly ridiculous situation. This whole Brexit process has been blurred, botched and bungled from the very start. Has ever so much diplomatic and political capital been expended for so little result? With every passing day, with each...

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

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: The Chancellor is being generous with his time. Can he clarify whether the Government’s analysis confirms that the half-baked Brexit deal that they are pursuing will actually leave our country permanently poorer?

EU Exit Negotiations (15 Nov 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: This Government’s fudged, botched Brexit deal is the worst of both worlds for both leave and remain. Does the Prime Minister not agree that as we have given the Government two years to make a complete dog’s breakfast of Brexit negotiations yet still not to be in a position to command a majority in this House, it is now high time to end this charade, to waste no further time, to have a...

Transport for the South East — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (25 Apr 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: The hon. Gentleman mentioned both Brexit and Kent. The M20 in Kent very often becomes a lorry park. Does he agree that, in their Brexit dealings, the Government need to ensure that the M20 does not become a permanent lorry park?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Jan 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: It is wonderful that while others are talking about building walls we in Britain are talking about building bridges—connecting communities, despite Brexit—but let me reassure our American friends that the Mexicans, no the French, will be paying for it, because our NHS needs to be properly funded first. Rather than building an airy-fairy 22-mile-long bridge over the English channel or a...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Plain English summary of retained direct EU legislation (20 Dec 2017)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: ...inflation by increasing import costs of both final goods and intermediate inputs. Today, according to Citibank analysis, long-run inflation expectations are up to 3.3%, but by June this year the Brexit vote was costing the average household £7.74 per week through higher prices. That is equivalent to £404 per year. Higher inflation has also reduced the growth of real wages; that is...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Plain English summary of retained direct EU legislation (20 Dec 2017)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: I have listened closely to my hon. Friend, but we will need to wait until the immigration Bill is introduced to see exactly how we will be affected. Many British voters believe that by favouring Brexit they were voting for greater spending on the national health service and the rest of the British welfare state. Those voters will become even more dissatisfied when they discover that Brexit...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Plain English summary of retained direct EU legislation (20 Dec 2017)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: My hon. Friend corroborates what I have been trying to outline. Rather than taking back control of public services, Brexit is likely to result in more public services being run at arm’s length from directly elected representatives, who will seek to avoid being held responsible for poor performance. It is also vital that our trade agreement with the EU does not prevent economic growth and...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Plain English summary of retained direct EU legislation (20 Dec 2017)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: ...he agree that the Government produce assessments, whether or not they are “sectoral assessments”, on issues that are a lot more trivial than such an important thing befalling our country as Brexit? It is therefore imperative that we have detailed assessments on how this will affect our country.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: ...in real wages. However, it would enable public sector workers to keep up with inflation. As if the pay cap had not crushed morale enough for these vital workers, the Government’s preparations for Brexit are placing additional strains on our public services. It is predicted that the extra inflation created by Brexit will cost the average public sector worker more than an extra £1,000 in...
