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...

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.

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

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.

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...

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: 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...

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.
