Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) - Second Reading (18 Jan 2019)

Baroness Featherstone: ...marriage law goes to them and to lifelong campaigners, some of them in this House. I mention my noble friend Lady Barker and the noble Lords, Lord Cashman, Lord Alli and Lord Collins, along with many others. But I could never have done what I did if it had not been for civil partnerships. We would not have same-sex marriage if the Labour Government under Tony Blair had not taken that...

Brexit: Stability of the Union - Motion to Take Note (17 Jan 2019)

Lord Dykes: ...flourish. This matter is so severe now in this country because we cannot get agreement between the parties on any substantial matter—we cannot really get agreement on anything. Now, at long last, Theresa May is beginning the exercise of asking to discuss these matters with the other parties—which she should have done ages ago—because we have reached a huge impasse and have no...

Business of the House (Today): No Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (16 Jan 2019)

Theresa May: I thought perhaps the right hon. Gentleman could just inform the House: how many seats in Westminster—how many Westminster MPs—did the SNP have before the 2017 election and how many did they have after the 2017 election?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Jan 2019)

Theresa May: ...have taken a number of steps to help those people: we have cut taxes for 32 million people, increased the national living wage and frozen fuel duty. Unfortunately, however, in the case of so many of those measures, which we took to give financial help to people who are just about managing—the sort of people he is talking about—the Labour party opposed them.

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [9th Allotted Day] (15 Jan 2019)

Theresa May: .... The Belfast agreement’s success has been built on allowing people from both communities in Northern Ireland to feel that their identities are respected under the principle of consent. For many people in Northern Ireland that means having a seamless land border between the UK and Ireland, which is also essential for their economy. For others, it means fully respecting the fact that...

Leaving the EU (14 Jan 2019)

Theresa May: I am not sure that there were many questions to me in the response that the right hon. Gentleman gave, but let me respond to some of the points of fact that he referenced, some of which were perhaps not as correct as they might have been. The right hon. Gentleman said that there is no legal termination mechanism in the withdrawal agreement on the backstop. There is, but the point is that it...

Leaving the EU — [David Hanson in the Chair] (14 Jan 2019)

Paul Scully: ...with the EU. We should walk away now. No Deal is better than a bad deal.” The third petition is, again, similar. It is entitled “Walk away now! We voted for a No Deal Brexit”. It says: “Theresa May has failed to negotiate a Brexit deal that is acceptable to Parliament and the British people. The Withdrawal Agreement does not deliver the Brexit we voted for. It is clear that the EU...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (3rd Day) (14 Jan 2019)

Baroness Boothroyd: ...and even more so when he caved in to his right-wingers and media pressure by calling the 2016 referendum. He thought he would win but has said since that he did not mind losing. I did mind. Theresa May, whose tenacity commands respect, has been struggling to keep her party together ever since. Her Government stumble from one expediency to another, unimpeded by a dithering leader of Her...

Points of Order: [7th Allotted Day] (11 Jan 2019)

Emily Thornberry: ..., the Prime Minister running around Europe obtaining invisible concessions on Brexit. That brings us to the crux of today’s debate. Here we are, five weeks after we had the same debate, and so many Members on both sides of the House have pointed out that there is nothing in the withdrawal agreement in relation to home affairs and foreign policy, let alone any other subject, that is in...

Scottish Parliament: UK Immigration White Paper (10 Jan 2019)

Fiona Hyslop: There are a number of issues to address in that question. First, I make it clear that the problem with Theresa May’s deal is that the proposal to end of freedom of movement makes it as bad as there being no deal. The majority of what I have laid out in my statement is an economic analysis of a reduction in freedom of movement, and under the white paper that is before us and which we are...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [5th Allotted Day] (9 Jan 2019)

Theresa Villiers: ...neighbours. I strongly believe that we need to listen to the views of people on all sides, whichever way they voted in the referendum, but right across the spectrum of views on Brexit there are many who believe that this draft agreement is not the right one for our country. A legal obligation to pay £38 billion to the EU, without any certainty on our future trading relationship, would...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Jan 2019)

Theresa May: First, I absolutely agree with the right hon. Gentleman that there is no place for intimidation in any part of our society. Politicians do need a safe space in which to express their opinions, many of which are passionately held. I hope that he will now ask his shadow Chancellor to withdraw or apologise for the remarks that he made about the former Secretary of State for Work and Pensions,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Jan 2019)

Theresa May: ...the withdrawal agreement and said that there was no position on what the future relationship should be. Of course, the framework for that future relationship, which is in greater detail than many had expected, is set out in the political declaration, which gives the instructions to the negotiators for the future. In that circumstance, it is right that we consider the role that Parliament...

International Development Assistance (Palestinian National Authority Schools) (8 Jan 2019)

Hugo Swire: ...would doubt that education is a major tool for international development. Most Israelis I know pride education above almost everything else, not least because of its ability to transform lives, and many of the moderate Israelis I know would be appalled by the suggestion that this funding should be cut. Once, when I was a Minister of State at the Northern Ireland Office, we took a group of...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Citizens (Contribution to Scotland) (19 Dec 2018)

Gillian Martin: colleagues in Glasgow would proudly namecheck Provost Eva Bollander, who is a Swedish national, and Ayrshire Councillor Joy Brahim, who is originally from the Netherlands. I pay tribute to the many students from other EU countries whom I have taught as a college lecturer. Our classrooms and lecture halls have been all made richer by their presence. A great many of the people whom we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Dec 2018)

Theresa May: ...leave Parliament as we go into recess, they do not just go away; they go to their constituencies and work in their constituencies and for their constituents. That is all too frequently forgotten by many, so I thank my hon. Friend for raising it and reminding us of it.

European Council (17 Dec 2018)

Theresa May: ...on the issue of a second referendum. I have indicated when the vote will be brought back to the House. It will be necessary for the usual channels to agree what the business motion would be and how many days of debate would be available. We are not trying to stop debate. I am trying to—[Interruption.] I am recognising and reflecting to the European Union the concerns expressed in this...

Reconciliation: Role of British Foreign, Defence and International Development Policy - Motion to Take Note (14 Dec 2018)

Lord Collins of Highbury: My Lords, I too pay tribute to and thank the most reverend Primate for initiating today’s debate. None of us can fail to have been moved by many of the personal testaments and testimonies to the efforts to find reconciliation. Like the noble Lord, Lord Alderdice, I was particularly moved by the contribution of the noble Lord, Lord Trimble. It is important that we reflect on and listen to...

Scottish Parliament: Demonstrating Leadership in Human Rights (13 Dec 2018)

Daniel Johnson: ...that the UK might withdraw from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. In its 2015 manifesto, the Conservative Party pledged to repeal the very Human Rights Act that many members supported today. Indeed, when Theresa May made her single intervention during the Brexit campaign, although she spoke in support of remaining in the EU, she also suggested that we...

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (12 Dec 2018)

Theresa May: with all those caught up in the horrific incident in Strasbourg last night, and we stand ready to give whatever support the French authorities may need. Today, I will have meetings—possibly many meetings—with ministerial colleagues and others.
