EU Exit Day Amendment (27 Mar 2019)

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

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (27 Mar 2019)

Anna Soubry: Let me tell the hon. Gentleman this. We have a referendum with, on the ballot paper, whatever deal we settle on and the option of remain. If people vote for the Prime Minister’s deal or whatever, that is it, and if they vote remain, end of—we stay in the EU.

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (27 Mar 2019)

Anna Soubry: It is a great pleasure to follow the hon. Member for South Suffolk (James Cartlidge). I shall be voting for motions (M) and (L) for the excellent reasons that the proposers of both those motions have made very clear to the House. What a great debate we have had, and has it not been so revealing, so comforting and so good to see and hear how many hon. Members, notably on the Conservative...

Anna Soubry: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (27 Mar 2019)

Anna Soubry: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Business of the House (27 Mar 2019)

Anna Soubry: I am grateful to the shadow Leader of the House for giving way. I am sure that she will give way to the Father of the House as well, unlike the Leader of the House, who sadly did not do so. Does the hon. Lady share my concern at the assertion that the withdrawal agreement cannot be renegotiated, when we were told in no uncertain terms by the Government that the so-called Malthouse compromise,...

Business of the House (27 Mar 2019)

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

Points of Order (27 Mar 2019)

Anna Soubry: Further to the point of order from the hon. Member for Chelmsford (Vicky Ford), Mr Speaker—and I see that the hon. Member for Cardiff South and Penarth (Stephen Doughty) wants to raise what I suspect will be the same point. As you know, Mr Speaker, following an incident involving the hon. Member for Chelmsford last week, we have had further incidents outside that entrance to the tube...

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (25 Mar 2019)

Anna Soubry: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Would be in order to record that the right hon. Member for Chelsea and Fulham (Greg Hands) was actually a rather good Whip; and, arguably more importantly, as a member of Her Majesty’s Government —as a Minister—resigned on a point of principle?

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (25 Mar 2019)

Anna Soubry: It is a genuine honour to follow the hon. Member for Redcar (Anna Turley). I have previously praised her and many of her Labour colleagues who represent seats that voted leave, yet who, through their leadership in engaging with their constituents, being courageous and forthright in many instances, and listening and engaging in the debate, have now come to the conclusion that the only way...

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (25 Mar 2019)

Anna Soubry: I completely agree with the right hon. Gentleman. Indeed, I observe that many of them held the most senior positions in government but, when the going got tough, found life was much easier by leaving those positions, failing to deliver and failing to live up to the responsibility placed on them by their leadership of the leave campaign. My constituents who are watching at home, reading the...

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (25 Mar 2019)

Anna Soubry: The hon. Gentleman shakes his head, but I can tell him for a fact that British business will never forgive the Conservative party for what it has done to business throughout the whole of this Brexit process. Many of us have said this all before, but it is absolutely the case that people like me voted to trigger article 50—the majority of us did. The majority of us voted for the European...

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (25 Mar 2019)

Anna Soubry: Yes, but the hon. Gentleman forgets two things. The majority of people in this country did not vote to leave the European Union. As somebody who represents a marginal seat with one of the smallest majorities—I do not know what the hon. Gentleman’s is, but we can have that competition—let me tell him that I am not interested in my majority. I am not interested in just coming back to this...

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (25 Mar 2019)

Anna Soubry: I am not taking any more interventions, or you will be even more cross with me, Mr Speaker. I am going to vote for amendment (f), tabled by the right hon. Member for Derby South (Margaret Beckett), and amendment (a), tabled by the right hon. Member for West Dorset (Sir Oliver Letwin). I gently say to Members how important it is that, here and now, we take control of this process and do the...

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (25 Mar 2019)

Anna Soubry: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (25 Mar 2019)

Anna Soubry: I do indeed. Does it strike the hon. Gentleman as being quite perverse that the very people invited to Chequers were the very people who, in December, sought a motion of no confidence in the Prime Minister as leader of the Conservative party and plotted against her? Is he also aware that a lot of Conservative associations hold their annual general meetings at the end of this week, and does he...

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (25 Mar 2019)

Anna Soubry: I just wish to confirm everything that the right hon. Gentleman has said about how he started off believing in the delivery of Brexit, and indeed continues to do so. His description of his journey is accurate. My question was whether he would push his amendment to a vote, and if so, why. I think he has made that very clear to the House.

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (25 Mar 2019)

Anna Soubry: The right hon. and learned Gentleman will have listened with great care to what the Minister for the Cabinet Office said about the Government’s alternative if amendment (a) fails to win a majority. Does he share my concern that the Government would, in effect, only allow indicative votes on the political declaration? The assumption would be that the withdrawal agreement will go through and...
