Assessment and Treatment Units: Vulnerable People: Centenary of the Armistice (6 Nov 2018)

Anna Soubry: We have the games of remembrance in Nottingham on Thursday. The German and British women’s army teams will play at lunch time at Notts County, and in the evening the British and German men’s army teams will play at Nottingham Forest. Although I am sure that the hon. Gentleman would love to attend, he probably will not be able to, but is it not a great event?

Assessment and Treatment Units: Vulnerable People: Centenary of the Armistice (6 Nov 2018)

Anna Soubry: It is a great pleasure to follow all today’s speeches, but I want to pick out and commend the excellent speeches of both Front-Bench spokesmen and the preceding speech from the hon. Member for Leyton and Wanstead (John Cryer). He touched on one of the outcomes of the first world war, talking about the rise of trade unionism. If there were benefits from the war, they were few, but we have...

Assessment and Treatment Units: Vulnerable People (6 Nov 2018)

Anna Soubry: I welcomed the Secretary of State’s words yesterday, when he made it very clear that he understands that the situation now needs urgent action. My constituent’s daughter died at the age of 25, having been sectioned, living in a padded cell; her weight rose to 26 stone when she was apparently being cared for. Does my right hon. Friend agree that it is not just about money and how we can...

Income Tax (Charge) (29 Oct 2018)

Anna Soubry: If my right hon. Friend would like to do a Google search, as I have just done, he would discover that, apparently, the small, simple croft of the right hon. Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber is valued in the region of half a million pounds.

Income Tax (Charge) (29 Oct 2018)

Anna Soubry: How big is your estate?

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation and Exercise of Functions) Bill: Extension of period for Executive formation (24 Oct 2018)

Anna Soubry: I rise to speak in support of new clause 7, and I urge hon. Members on both sides of the House to support this really meek and mild amendment. It really should not be causing so much agitation, and I think we have to ask ourselves why it is doing so in certain quarters of the House. As many of us discovered when we went to Northern Ireland as guests of Amnesty International, the simple truth...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation and Exercise of Functions) Bill: Extension of period for Executive formation (24 Oct 2018)

Anna Soubry: I absolutely did not say that, although it is obviously something that many of us now seek to do. New clause 7 is the gentlest step forward so that the Secretary of State and her good officials can monitor human rights and see what is happening. This is important work. With great respect to my hon. Friend the Member for North Dorset (Simon Hoare), he was not here for the whole debate. He...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation and Exercise of Functions) Bill: Extension of period for Executive formation (24 Oct 2018)

Anna Soubry: Can my right hon. Friend reassure me on two things: first, that new clause 7 is a matter of conscience and we on this side of the House will not be whipped on it, and, secondly, that new clause 7 does not change the law or indeed give anybody the power to change the law? The notes are very clear: it is all about accountability to the Secretary of State so that she can look at human rights and...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation and Exercise of Functions) Bill: Extension of period for Executive formation (24 Oct 2018)

Anna Soubry: When we went to Northern Ireland with Amnesty International, we learned that people cannot be given that information, because giving it is a criminal offence for which a person will be prosecuted, and they will face a lengthy prison sentence. One of the most concerning features of all this is the inability of people to get any form of advice.

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation and Exercise of Functions) Bill: Extension of period for Executive formation (24 Oct 2018)

Anna Soubry: Will the hon. Lady also make it very clear that the rather barbaric and antiquated laws that exist in Northern Ireland are not even effective, because all they mean is that, as she said, about 28 women every week have to come over to England and Wales? So the laws are not working in any event, and this just makes them even more barbaric because women have to travel to exercise the same rights...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation and Exercise of Functions) Bill (24 Oct 2018)

Anna Soubry: My right hon. Friend makes a powerful point about the pursuit of people who should clearly not be pursued as they have been through a process that has long been done with. Does he agree that that matter should actually be being determined by the Attorney General for Northern Ireland? It is a clear and blatant abuse of process that old criminal lawyers will understand. Does he also agree that...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation and Exercise of Functions) Bill (24 Oct 2018)

Anna Soubry: Does the hon. Gentleman share my concern that, apart from the hon. Member for North Down (Lady Hermon), we do not hear the voice of the majority of people in Northern Ireland on Brexit in this Chamber? The majority of people in Northern Ireland—now the overwhelming majority, according to new polling—voted for us to stay in the European Union. Does it trouble the hon. Member for Paisley...
