European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ...many years. Camphill has many bases across Scotland. I very much hope Scottish Conservative MPs who have a base in their constituency will support the new clause, because it is not about stopping Brexit or confounding the Bill but about measuring the impact of the Act on employment and funding in the health and social care sector. I am delighted that so many organisations across the United...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Saving for rights etc. under section 2(1) of the ECA (16 Jan 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...rights, about which we have already had quite a degree of discussion today, and to the justiciability of those rights and their legal certainty in this country and its jurisdictions after Brexit. The amendments tabled by the Scottish National party have the support of the Law Society of Scotland, and those that relate to the charter have widespread support, including from the Equality and...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Saving for rights etc. under section 2(1) of the ECA (16 Jan 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...deficit at the heart of the United Kingdom, which is why I and other Scottish National party Members would like to see an independent Scotland. The irony is that those who push so strongly for Brexit complain about a democratic deficit in the European Union, and many of them hold that view sincerely, but they seem not to care a jot for the democratic deficit in this Union, the United...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Saving for rights etc. under section 2(1) of the ECA (16 Jan 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...the Government today—this is why I tabled this probing amendment—is some indication that they recognise the gravity of the issue. This is not a political football, and it is not about stopping Brexit; it is about addressing issues of legal certainty. As a courtesy to this House, I would like to hear some indication of how the Government propose to address the issues of legal certainty,...

Leaving the European Union — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (22 Jan 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...summit. It was a summit of British and French politicians and businessmen. The French businessmen told us that they are exasperated with Britain, that they want to know what Britain wants out of Brexit and that, if we do not say what we want soon, decisions will be taken that go against the UK’s interests. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that we require clarity rather than to crash out...

UK Fisheries Policy — [Mr Ian Paisley in the Chair] (27 Feb 2018)

Joanna Cherry: The Brexit Committee was told by Norwegian witnesses that, because Norway is not in the customs union, there are high tariffs on processed fish and they send their fish to Poland and Germany to be processed. Does the hon. Lady agree that, if the United Kingdom leaves the customs union, many fish processing jobs will be lost in Scotland and beyond?

Bill Presented: Data Protection Bill [Lords] (5 Mar 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...adequacy decision from the European Commission. Indeed, EU citizens today expressed their concern that these exemptions might have an impact on their ability to enforce their residency rights after Brexit, under the agreements currently being brokered. I urge the Government to look at this very carefully. They have yet to give any reasonable justification for the inclusion in the Bill of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: Legal System (6 Mar 2018)

Joanna Cherry: Unlike the EU withdrawal Bill, the Scottish Government’s legal continuity Bill contains a power to enable devolved law in Scotland to keep pace with EU law after Brexit, where appropriate. Does the Secretary of State agree that similar provisions should be made in the EU withdrawal Bill for reserved matters and for the benefit of the English legal system?

Uk Passport Contract (26 Mar 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...sympathises with the workers whose jobs are threatened by this decision but, to be frank, the issue of where the new United Kingdom passport is printed as a result of the Government’s handling of Brexit is the least of our worries. Getting a dark blue passport—as the right hon. and learned Member for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke) said, we could have had one all along, had we wanted...

Windrush (23 Apr 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...that decades of contributions to these islands have made absolutely no difference to the application of the “hostile environment” policy and they are right to fear for their position after Brexit. What comfort can the Home Secretary give those EU nationals? In the meantime, the Home Secretary has used Home Office staff as a shield to hide from criticism and, in turn, she is being used...

Windrush (30 Apr 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...Secretary, we will have more disgraceful instances of maltreatment of people who have every right to be in the United Kingdom. EU nationals in particular are concerned about what awaits them after Brexit, for all the fine words of assurance. I therefore have the following questions for the new Home Secretary. Will he commit to a root-and-branch review of the immigration policies that have...

NHS Long-Term Plan: Sewel Convention (18 Jun 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...competing principle. The rationale for the Sewel convention is protection of devolved autonomy. It is not clear to me or Professor McHarg why the protection of devolution should be suspended by the Brexit vote, particularly when Scots did not vote for Brexit by a majority of two to one. Professor McHarg concludes, on the basis of what few precedents there are, and of the discussions at the...

EU Settlement Scheme (21 Jun 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...who wished to express concern about his status as an EU citizen. Does the Minister agree that the absolute principle should be that no EU citizen living in the UK should suffer as a result of the Brexit outcome, in which of course they had no vote? Will she consider waiving the registration fee, as the Scottish Government are going to do for public sector workers and have suggested the...

June European Council (2 Jul 2018)

Joanna Cherry: Thank you, Mr Speaker. This is, from my point of view, one occasion on which cherry-picking is in order. We are advised that the EU 27 are so united in their approach to Brexit that they spent only 10 minutes discussing it last week. Can the Prime Minister give us an estimate of how long she thinks the members of her Cabinet will spend discussing matters next Friday at Chequers before they...

Leaving the EU: Implications for Scotland — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...a powerful speech and she makes the point, which Government Members cannot bear to hear, that business, the trade unions and all of civic society in Scotland are concerned about the impact of Brexit on Scotland. The hon. Member for Stirling (Stephen Kerr) said that we should be masters of our own fate. Does my hon. Friend agree that the whole point of this debate is that the people of...

Leaving the EU: Implications for Scotland — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Joanna Cherry: I will make some progress. I just wanted to make that statement. I want to speak about the implications of Brexit for security, judicial co-operation and law enforcement in Scotland, which the UK Government have overlooked to date. That is not my view; it is the view of the distinguished former judge at the European Court of Justice, Sir David Edward. He is also a distinguished former judge...

Opposition Day - [15TH Allotted Day, 1ST Part]Opposition Day: Claim of Right for Scotland (4 Jul 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...economic, social and cultural development.” We have this motion today because of what has occurred since the people of Scotland last voted in relation to their self-determination, which was the Brexit vote in 2014, because the implications of Brexit for Scotland’s economic, social and cultural development are enormous. That is why we wish to reassert today the right of the Scottish...

Opposition Day - [15TH Allotted Day, 1ST Part]Opposition Day: Claim of Right for Scotland (4 Jul 2018)

Joanna Cherry: is music to my ears because there is already a mandate for another independence referendum in Scotland. It comes from the democratically elected Scottish Parliament in which, in the light of the Brexit vote, the SNP and the Greens together voted to give the First Minister of Scotland a mandate—[Interruption.] Let me finish my point. The SNP and the Greens voted to give the First...

Opposition Day - [15TH Allotted Day, 1ST Part]Opposition Day: Claim of Right for Scotland (4 Jul 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...I suggest that he gets a mirror and looks in it more often, because it is he and his colleagues from Scotland who have been playing the man, not the ball. This debate—as well as the debate around Brexit and Scottish independence—is really about what it means to be an independent nation in the modern world. People often ask why the Scottish National party wants to leave the United...
