Exiting the European Union (Sanctions): Section 1 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2019 (9 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: I do not doubt for one moment that the hon. Gentleman does not share that view, but the reality is that the majority of members of the Conservative party, as we heard in earlier speeches, are travelling in that direction. The next leader of the Conservative party will be exactly the sort of person who believes in the most ruinous version of Brexit—a no-deal Brexit. I was heartened to attend...

Exiting the European Union (Sanctions): Section 1 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2019 (9 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: I suggest to the right hon. Gentleman that insulting the majority of people in this House is not exactly a great way to win an argument. However, will he confirm that he himself said we would be wrong to leave the single market? Will he also confirm that the leave campaign made it very clear that we would not leave the European Union before a deal on trade—a long-term relationship—had...

Exiting the European Union (Sanctions): Section 1 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2019 (9 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Exiting the European Union (Sanctions): Section 1 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2019 (9 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: This is a genuine question. If Her Majesty’s Opposition had tabled an amendment seeking a much longer extension, I think it would have won support, certainly from most of us sitting over in this quarter of the Chamber. Is there a reason why the Opposition did not table an amendment to get a long extension, which would do the job for manufacturers in particular?

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill: Duties in connection with Article 50 extension (3 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: With respect, I think the hon. Gentleman will find that in treaty, in international law, EU citizens are entitled to vote in European elections and to be represented in the European Parliament. Although I agree that, often, where there’s a will there’s a way, especially with the European Union, my understanding is that a change to an international treaty would be required to extend the...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill (3 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: I congratulate the right hon. Lady on her Bill and the progress she has made thus far. She speaks clearly, based on evidence, and I am delighted that, as I expected from her, she has clearly listened to business. Does she agree that we can only assume that the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has also listened to business, and of course he has looked at the...

Business of the House (3 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that this was always a three-part process? Big progress has been made. Is it his understanding that, now we have begun to conclude the procedure, at least one composite, and arguably two, is now coming forward? There is every chance that we really will be able to settle on something that would reach agreement across the House.

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Votes) (1 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. What you do not know is that a week ago an effort was made to put forward composite motions. Unfortunately, despite the efforts of a number of us, that was resisted. However, as the Father of the House rightly identifies, there is undoubtedly a way of getting this together—that is why this is a three-stage process. [Interruption.] Hon. Members should just...

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (1 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Chelmsford (Vicky Ford). I suggest that there is the real rub of what is going on, or the danger we face tonight if we do not look at what is behind what seems like a lot of sensible compromise. My real fear is that unless we vote for motions (E) and (G), which I will vote for, the Government will, as the right hon. Member for Exeter (Mr...

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (1 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: The hon. Gentleman says “Compromise”, and I hear exactly what he says, but it would not be in the withdrawal— Debate interrupted (Order, this day).

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (1 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (1 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: Does the right hon. Gentleman accept that there is a difference between those who wanted a pure Brexit and those who did not want us to leave in any event? I suggest to him that that is not any compromise that the Prime Minister has made. She has not compromised. The point is that she has not reached out to those of us who had accepted the result of the referendum and did want to form a way...

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (1 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: I am proud to have signed the hon. and learned Lady’s motion and I shall be voting for it tonight. My only concern is not about the motion but, if it is passed, about the consequences. Many of us, right across this House, are concerned that, whatever votes we come to and whatever majority we find, the Government will simply ignore them.

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (1 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: As my hon. Friend knows—and he is my friend—I have made the case and voted for the single market and the customs union for almost the past two years. My difficulty with his motion is that paragraph 1(i) says that it seeks to “renegotiate the framework for the future relationship”. I think that he would have won more support if, like motion (C), on the customs union, he had sought to...

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (1 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: I should like to intervene on the hon. Gentleman to enable him to collect his thoughts. I congratulate him on speaking in the way that he is, notwithstanding some of the other stuff that might be going on. In any event, does he agree that it is really important that everyone believes in and votes for a people’s vote and does not get distracted by anything else?

Business of the House (1 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: Last week.

Business of the House (1 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: The hon. Gentleman raises an interesting point in talking about the courage of our convictions. Would he like to tell the House why he voted against the Government’s withdrawal agreement a few weeks ago but voted for it on Friday? Why is he entitled to change his mind in a vote but the people of this country are not allowed to change their mind and have a people’s vote?

Business of the House (1 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: rose—

Business of the House (1 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: I think it is important to record that, of course, the majority of people in Broxtowe did not vote Conservative and, like all hon. and right hon. Members, I seek to represent all my constituents. As we all should, I put them and our country before narrow, sectarian party interest.

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

Anna Soubry: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Christchurch (Sir Christopher Chope). I do not agree with much of what he says, but I will say this in his favour: at least he is consistent with the arguments he has made repeatedly in this place for why this is a bad deal. He and I will be in the same Lobby tonight—for different reasons—and actually I agree with much of what he says about...
