Business of the House (25 Oct 2012)

Angela Eagle: ...train service who refused to let the Chancellor have a free ride? The hapless part-time Chancellor was bundled out of the goods exit at Euston to avoid the waiting media, and it was left to the hon.

Transparency in UK Company Supply Chains (Eradication of Slavery) Bill (19 Oct 2012)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: The hon. Member for Linlithgow and East Falkirk (Michael Connarty) has brought forward a noble Bill that, in its intention and motivation, is of the highest standards this House ever reaches.

Parliamentary Language (17 Oct 2012)

Chris Bryant: ...Forth regularly got away with using the term “PMPs”. When he was shadow Leader of the House, he always referred to “PMPs” as opposed to “PMQs”, with “PMPs” meaning “Prime Minister’s porkies”. If that was not accusing the Prime Minister of lying, I do not know what would have been. That was quite a direct accusation of...

Prisons (Property) Bill (14 Sep 2012)

Steven Baker: ...If people are able to behave lawfully but other than in accordance with the spirit of the House, the law should be changed, which is a point that my hon.

I am prepared to accept the possibility that I am the only Member who does not know the tax code from one end to the other. I see that you are...

Opposition Day — [6th Allotted Day]: Universal Credit and Welfare Reform (11 Sep 2012)

Steve Webb: Almost 20 Members took part in the debate, and we are grateful to all of them. The high point was when my hon. Friend the Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg) suggested that the contribution of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State had been so definitive that we should have a parliamentary procedure under which the debate simply ceases and applause follows. We have heard...

Geraint Davies: The hon. Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg) has just given us a diatribe in support of laissez-faire economics and casting Britain adrift, and the idea that whatever happens in terms of the ESM will not have any impact on British trade and jobs, which it clearly will. Like you, Mr Benton, I am a member of the Council of Europe, and we both take very seriously the issue of Europe...

Prayers: Social Care (Local Sufficiency) and Identification of Carers Bill (7 Sep 2012)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: The question before us is not so much quis custodiet ipsos custodes, as Juvenal put it—who guards the guards themselves?—but who cares for the carers themselves? The hon. Member for Worsley and Eccles South (Barbara Keeley) introduced the Bill with amazing foresight, because the very next day Her Majesty’s Government took a lot of what she was proposing and put it in their...

Jacob Rees-Mogg: May I commend the Deputy Prime Minister on his remarkable statesmanship with regard to the boundary changes? He will be pleased to know that the commission was proposing a North East Somerset that would have been a safe Lib Dem seat, so I am in with a sporting chance of being back after the next election. However, now that he has said that Lib Dem Ministers will vote against Government...

Court of Justice of the European Union — Motion to Approve (23 Jul 2012)

Lord Liddle: ...the Commons Hansard, although the criticism comes much better from someone like the noble Lord, Lord Bowness, than it does from me. I was appalled by what the Member for North East Somerset, Jacob Rees-Mogg, said.

Court of Justice of the European Union: Draft European Union Budget (12 Jul 2012)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: It is a great pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Leicester East (Keith Vaz), although I note that we are all glad that he is Chairman of the Home Affairs Committee rather than the Select Committee on the Treasury, because 13 minus six is certainly not three.

Friend the Member...
