Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Oct 2019)

Bill Cash: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. As Chairman of the European Scrutiny Committee, I have now been informed that a withdrawal agreement has been agreed. I have been to the Library to ask for a copy to indicate the difference between the document in my hand, which is from March 2019, and the new agreement. I put it on record that this is a matter of extreme importance to the United...

Brexit Negotiations (3 Oct 2019)

Bill Cash: In welcoming indications of progress in the negotiations, does my right hon. Friend agree that the overriding democratic issue is that the referendum result, and the withdrawal Act with 31 October as the end date, confirms the sovereign and inalienable right of the British people to govern themselves and that we need a general election in this country now and to get Brexit done?

Compliance with the European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (26 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: The issue of compliance raises a very simple question. I say this to the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer): it is by no means certain that the law of the land is reflected in the passing of the European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act, because there is an apparent inconsistency between that Act and the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. I have no time...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: The Supreme Court mentioned that the Prorogation had—[Interruption.]

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: The Supreme Court mentioned that the Prorogation had an extreme effect on the fundamentals of our democracy. Does my right hon. Friend accept that it is more than an extreme and undemocratic effect for Parliament itself to tear up its own Standing Order No. 14, because the priority that that Standing Order gives to Government business, as compared with private Members’ business such as the...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: In examining the question of the rule of law does my hon. Friend agree that it is essential to look at the wording of the Act itself? Is there not a substantial degree of uncertainty in the duties that are being imposed upon the Prime Minister, not least because of the provisions contained in the so-called Kinnock amendment, and also because it is sometimes impossible to perform a duty if the...

Early Parliamentary General Election (No. 2) (9 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: The fundamental question that faces us today about whether or not we should have an early parliamentary election is really the same question we have been debating now for many, many years, and in particular in the past three years in relation to the referendum result. The key question is: who governs this country? That is the issue before us tonight. I have to say, with the greatest concern,...

HS2 (5 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: Thank you, Mr Speaker. First, I welcome the Secretary of State to his new position. Secondly, I entirely endorse the views of my right hon. Friends the Members for Aylesbury (Mr Lidington) and for Chesham and Amersham (Dame Cheryl Gillan). The reality is that this whole project is completely out of control. The costs have gone up repeatedly. I voted against it. There is a petition in the...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill: Duties in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: I noticed the laughter from the Scots Nats at what my right hon. Friend said. In view of the very good sense that he was speaking, I invite the House to consider this. Is it not the case that under the withdrawal agreement, during the transition period, decisions will be taken by the Council of Ministers to impose obligations and laws on the United Kingdom without our even being there,...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill: Duties in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: That is absolutely right, and that is why, in my short speech earlier, I said that this should be called not the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill but the European Union (Subservience) Bill. This is a subjugation, and we have experienced this. That is why I called on the previous Prime Minister to resign. We had a capitulation on 11 April; we had a flurry of points of order, then we had a...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill: Duties in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: I do not think that that is really an excuse, because the reality is that this is the decision—[Interruption.] I will read out the subsection to which the right hon. Gentleman just referred. It states that “subsection (2) does not apply if the House of Commons has decided not to pass a motion moved by a Minister of the Crown within a period of two calendar days beginning with the end of...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill: Duties in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: That is true. Indeed, we had all this back in April when, if one looks at the text of the decision and the manner in which it has taken, one can see that it was hedged with certain conditions. What is going on here is that this Bill is driving us to do something that is in complete contravention to the decision that has been taken already in section 1 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill: Duties in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: The question I raise in this series of amendments relates in particular, as I said in my brief speech just now, to the extent to which the United Kingdom is put under a duty—an obligation —to be subservient to the European Union. I find this Bill deeply offensive for that reason alone, and, as I said earlier, our whole parliamentary constitutional arrangement is based on the fact that we...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill: Duties in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: My right hon. Friend nods his head, because that is true, and that is how it goes.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: I want to refer briefly to the remarks of the right hon. Member for North East Bedfordshire (Alistair Burt). I simply want to explain very simply that I was going to intervene because he referred to the sacrifice that people had made in the last war and I want to put it on record that my father was killed in the last war, and I think I understand not only the issues involved in that, but...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: Will he take a second intervention?

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: Does the right hon. Gentleman believe that, irrespective of the speed with which all this is being done, a matter of such importance should really be dealt with in the context of a general election?

Speaker’S Statement (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. It will be perfectly obvious to anyone watching these proceedings and, for that matter, the entire House that this incredibly rushed procedure is a travesty in itself. This will be incredibly difficult, even given the manner in which you put your statement just now, due to the speed with which we are going to have to assess the Bill, which we have not even...

Speaker’S Statement (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: rose—

Speaker’S Statement (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. I understand your ruling. I just want to put on the record the fact that where I was referring to discussions that have taken place, those have been based on some extremely learned analyses, for example, those by Dr Robert Craig, which are available on blogs and in various papers, and Sir Stephen Laws, a former First Parliamentary Counsel. So these...
