Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Feb 2018)

Bill Cash: Today is the anniversary of the signing of the Maastricht treaty, and we have come a very long way. May I congratulate my right hon. Friend on her approach to the customs union? May I also mention the fact that, in the Liaison Committee last December, I warned her about ultimatums from the EU, as I did again in my urgent question only last week? Will she be good enough to be very robust when...

Women’S Suffrage Centenary (6 Feb 2018)

Bill Cash: I am sorry that I was a little late, Mr Speaker, but I had something else that I could not avoid. However, I am so delighted to be able to celebrate this centenary. As some may know, men also played a major part in ensuring that the vote was given to women. In the late 1860s, Jacob Bright, with Richard Pankhurst, brought forward the first Bill to give women total female suffrage, and I...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Bill Cash: I think I can say this on behalf of all those who are liable to petition in Staffordshire, thus representing several constituencies here: will the Minister do everything possible to help those petitioners to present their case, and show maximum understanding of what is affecting them, right the way through from one end of Staffordshire to the other?

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Bill Cash: Does the hon. Lady agree that it was not only the engineers of the Victorian age—great as they were—but also the capital that was provided which ensured that these schemes were actually put into effect?

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Bill Cash: The hon. Lady just said that in Committee, we will do such and such. I think she may have misunderstood the nature of the procedure. It will be a hybrid Bill Select Committee, not a Committee of the House.

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Bill Cash: Does my hon. Friend agree that this has all the hallmarks of a vanity project and that that is why there is not a proper business case? To a certain extent, that answers his question.

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Bill Cash: Does my hon. Friend recall the impact that this will also have on Yarlet School, which is a very serious problem for those who have this fantastically good school and the facilities that go with it?

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Bill Cash: I want to make clear straight away, on behalf of my constituents and in the light of my personal views on this Bill, my vehement objection to the proposals before us. I will vote against the Bill if there is a Division, which I rather think there will be. I have discussed my objections on various occasions both before the House and locally; they derive from the vast impact on my constituents...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Bill Cash: I absolutely agree, but unfortunately that advice has not been taken. Secondly, I have no confidence whatever in the Government’s stated outcomes for HS2 phase 2 in building costs or in social and environmental impacts. This comes from the dismal experience of their failures over their own reports on phase 1. The House of Lords Economic Affairs Committee cast doubt on phase 1 from the...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Bill Cash: That is completely right. It is also perhaps true that travel times were quicker in those days than they are now. This project is about not simply capacity but efficiency, and I do not believe that its objectives will be achieved. Turning to my local objections, a railhead will be established at Yarnfield during the construction period and will later be turned into a permanent maintenance...

Leaving the Eu: Implementation (29 Jan 2018)

Bill Cash: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union if he will make a statement on the Government’s proposals for the implementation of their policy on leaving the European Union.

Leaving the Eu: Implementation (29 Jan 2018)

Bill Cash: I am deeply grateful, Mr Speaker. Given the document to which the Minister has just referred, which was issued by the European Union to the United Kingdom about two hours ago, can the Government reconcile their policy of leaving the European Union with their own implementation proposals during the transitional period? Furthermore, will this apply when EU laws are imposed on us when we will...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Consequential, transitional, transitory and saving provision (17 Jan 2018)

Bill Cash: In brief, this Bill, with clause 1, which says that we are repealing the European Communities Act 1972, reflects the will of the people on 23 June 2016 and the will of this House, as expressed in the votes. So there are two absolutely valid reasons why this Bill must go through: it represents the will of the people outside the House; and it represents the will of the people inside the House....

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (17 Jan 2018)

Bill Cash: In his discussions with Mr Barnier, did my right hon. and learned Friend gain any impression that the European Commission, and indeed Mr Barnier himself, had taken on board the fact that in relation to the legal order to which my right hon. and learned Friend refers—the European Union and its institutions—article 50 actually represented a radical change by giving people the right...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (17 Jan 2018)

Bill Cash: I am most grateful to my hon. Friend for his response. May I simply say that these are issues of immense constitutional importance? My right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Beaconsfield (Mr Grieve) mentioned that yesterday and we have had debates on it in Committee, and I am most grateful for my hon. Friend’s assurance.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (17 Jan 2018)

Bill Cash: The European Scrutiny Committee, of which I have the honour to be Chairman, has been holding inquiries into the fundamental constitutional implications of the Bill, including clause 5. As is now shown on its website, I have had correspondence with the Prime Minister on its behalf since December. The provisions I refer to would empower the courts, for the first time in our Westminster-based...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (17 Jan 2018)

Bill Cash: I am indeed. I am grateful to my right hon. Friend, who also serves on the European Scrutiny Committee. The provisions I refer to would be express provisions. Therefore, the question of principle is fundamental and will also, no doubt, be taken up in the House of Lords. Furthermore, former Law Lords and members of the Supreme Court have expressed their concerns. The European Scrutiny...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (17 Jan 2018)

Bill Cash: I was completing my speech by inviting the intervention that my hon. Friend is now making.
