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

Joanna Cherry: ...that their role as Lobby fodder, and the way in which they have sneered and condescended when SNP Members have attempted to protest about the lack of time given in this Chamber to the impact of Brexit on devolution, will not serve them well. The disparity between the treatment of the Republic of Ireland within the European Union and the treatment of Scotland within the United Kingdom...

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...that after 29 March, there will be no Scottish and no English judge on the Court of Justice. Will that not be the very definition of being subject to the jurisdiction of a foreign court that her Brexiteers so opposed?

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...area. Does he agree that under the Chequers agreement, which takes services out of the mix, that hit will be considerably greater, particularly in terms of the jobs Labour is promising us from Brexit?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: Justice System (13 Nov 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...Government or Scotland’s Law Officers about the impact on Scotland’s separate and independent legal system. Can she now give me an assurance that this is not indicative of a plan to use Brexit to undermine Scotland’s independent legal system, which is of course protected by the Act of Union?

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (13 Nov 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...saying is that these are exceptional circumstances. Again, as my hon. Friend the Member for Glenrothes said, another parliamentary convention has already been ridden over roughshod in relation to Brexit. The Sewel convention states that normally the Scottish Government should be consulted. The Government have said this is not a normal situation, and they may well be right. Of course, there...

Privilege (Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice): Business of the House (European Union (Withdrawal) Act) (4 Dec 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...of freedom of movement will have a particularly heavy impact on the Scottish economy. I say to the Leader of the House that this is not about deal or no deal, because there is a third option: no Brexit. As has been widely reported today, the Advocate General of the European Court of Justice has given his opinion in the case of Wightman and others, including myself, v. the Secretary of...

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Joanna Cherry: .... Any Scottish MP who holds regular surgeries will confirm that that is a fact. There are two major universities in my constituency and all the academics tell me it is a fact that the process of Brexit and the rhetoric around immigration in this country is discouraging people from coming to live and work and study in Scotland. Scots did not vote for that, and that is one of the many...

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...I said earlier, today is a day for looking at the bigger picture. Speaking as someone who represents a Scottish constituency and as someone of Irish parentage, I see the bigger picture of the whole Brexit process as a tale of two Unions: the Union that is the United Kingdom and the Union that is the European Union. There are extremely stark differences between the ways in which the members...

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Joanna Cherry: other parties in the Scottish Parliament—as they will be today when the Liberal Democrats, the Greens and Labour will vote with the SNP to try to protect Scotland from the consequences of Brexit—have been wholly ignored. We can only look on with envy as the concerns of the Irish Government are placed centre stage in Brussels. Unlike Northern Ireland, Scotland has had a strong and...

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Joanna Cherry: Of course, of the Scottish Conservatives do not represent the majority of Scottish opinion in relation to anything, let alone Brexit. It is often forgotten, after the hullabaloo when they won seats here last year, that they are still very much in the minority in Scottish politics and the Scottish Parliament. Let us look at what has happened to Scotland in the past two years. The UK Government...

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...equal partner with England. A power devolved is a power retained, and Scottish democracy is always at the whim of the majority in this House. That is not tolerable. Regardless of what happens with Brexit, which I very much hope is reversed for the whole United Kingdom, I hope that the Scots will soon take the opportunity to say that Scotland’s position in the UK Union is not tolerable....

Business of the House (13 Dec 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...’s parliamentarians and Scotland’s Government are on a bit of a roll at the moment, with legal victories in Supreme Courts across Europe against the British Government in the midst of the Brexit chaos. This morning, the United Kingdom Supreme Court ruled that the Scottish Parliament had the competence to pass its Brexit continuity Bill at the time that it did, and that Scotland’s...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (17 Dec 2018)

Joanna Cherry: Staff and students at the Heriot-Watt and Napier universities in my constituency want assurances that Brexit will not adversely affect their studies or their research. Given the current uncertainty, is the new Universities Minister in a position to give those reassurances?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: EU Withdrawal Agreement: Co-operation on Justice (18 Dec 2018)

Joanna Cherry: ...Service in Scotland are concerned about that, because both tools are fundamental to fighting and investigating crime. Can the Minister confirm that Scotland will lose access to these measures after Brexit?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (18 Dec 2018)

Joanna Cherry: Can the Lord Chancellor assist me in finding out the answer to a question that the Attorney General and the Brexit Secretary have been unable to answer: how much taxpayers’ money did the UK Government spend fighting the litigation that established that the article 50 notice can be unilaterally revoked?

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Changes (7 Jan 2019)

Joanna Cherry: Today’s written statement from the Transport Secretary on the Government’s no-deal Brexit contract with the self-styled ferry operator Seaborne Freight says that the “negotiated procurement procedure without prior publication was concluded as allowed for by Regulation 32 of The Public Contracts Regulations”. I have been studying those regulations fairly closely, and they seem to...

Points of Order (6 Feb 2019)

Joanna Cherry: ...might want to go beyond the headlines of the BBC in future? What the European Council President Donald Tusk actually said was that there is a “special place in hell” for “those who promoted Brexit without even a sketch of a plan of how to carry it out safely”. So perhaps—[Hon. Members: “Oh!] Well, Mr Speaker, sometimes the truth hurts, doesn’t it?

Seaborne Freight (11 Feb 2019)

Joanna Cherry: The UK Government have been aware of the possibility of a no-deal Brexit since article 50 was triggered in March 2017, so can the Secretary of State tell us why this contract, which was awarded only at the end of December 2018, proceeded under regulation 32 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 without competitive tendering? Will he state clearly for the record, as I have asked this...

Leaving the EU (12 Feb 2019)

Joanna Cherry: I note that, during her statement, the Prime Minister said that she had secured an agreement with the EU for further talks. I am sure that she used the word “talks” advisedly, because when the Brexit Committee was in Brussels last week, we were told very clearly that the negotiations were over and that they ended in November when the Prime Minister shook hands on the deal to which she had...

Human Rights in the UK — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (13 Feb 2019)

Joanna Cherry: we run our economy and society. The debate is timely, because Parliament is convulsed in a state of indecision at the moment about whether to go for the Prime Minister’s deal, no deal or no Brexit. Everyone is talking about the backstop. It is important in that context not to lose sight of the clear risk posed by Brexit of regression in terms of human rights, across the United...
