Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: European Council (17 Dec 2012)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I should like to reassure the Prime Minister that for the sake of consistency we had a toast to him in Somerset at the weekend, but I am afraid there is a “but” on this occasion, which is that agreement to the single supervisory mechanism was by unanimity, but the rules for voting on the European Banking Authority can be changed by qualified majority voting. I therefore wonder...

Leveson Inquiry (3 Dec 2012)

Damian Green: .... Friends the Members for Richmond Park (Zac Goldsmith) and for Suffolk Coastal (Dr Coffey). They were also echoed with inimitable eloquence by my hon. Friend the Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg). We should be wary—this House is wary—of any legislation that has the potential to infringe free speech and a free press. That point was also made eloquently by the...

Bill Presented — Energy Bill: Leveson Inquiry (29 Nov 2012)

Martin Horwood: ...and obscenity which, as in this country, provide a statutory framework for the press already. Should that not reassure traditional champions of liberty, even the hon. Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg), that it is possible to have a legal framework that guarantees both the freedom of the press and the rights of individuals?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Clause 6 — Extent, commencement and short title (27 Nov 2012)

Graham Stringer: Like the hon. Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg), I rise with unexpected and particular joy, because I think this is the first time the Whips have asked me to make a speech about Europe. This is not a usual occurrence, and I doubt they will be pleased with what I have to say. Like the hon. Member for Cheltenham (Martin Horwood) and others, one cannot but wish Croatia well. It...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Clause 2 — Approval of Irish Protocol (27 Nov 2012)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Will the Minister therefore help me? If two cases appear before the ECJ—one for the UK; one for Ireland—is it open to the ECJ to rule differently because the protocol applies to Ireland but not to the UK? Does the clarification limit the ECJ’s jurisdiction over Ireland but not over the UK?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Clause 4 — Freedom of movement for Croatian nationals as workers (27 Nov 2012)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I am sorry to trouble the scorers again, Mr Crausby. I hope I will not be the only one trying to be the Mr Pietersen of the Committee for this afternoon’s proceedings. My batting pace would never be quite as fast as his—I am probably more of a Mr Boycott, particularly when it comes to anything to do with the European Union. The transition arrangements for the free movement of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Clause 1 — Approval of Croatian Accession Treaty (27 Nov 2012)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Applying the amendment to line 7 on page 1 of the Bill would make it say that the accession treaty would be approved, “except for those provisions requiring the full application”. It would, therefore, be a conditional approval of the treaty and I do not believe that the European Court of Justice could rule us in breach of treaty obligations, because Croatia would not have them...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Flooding (26 Nov 2012)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: May I join the Secretary of State in mourning the deaths of the three people, particularly the gentleman in Chew Stoke who was washed to his death in spite of the very valiant efforts of the fire brigade to rescue him?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: European Council (26 Nov 2012)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I hope the Prime Minister will be pleased to know that he is once again the toast of Somerset for returning from the European summit so successfully, and we look forward to his further success. For as Sir Francis Drake said, it is not the beginning but the continuing of the same until it is thoroughly finished that yieldeth the true glory. We look forward to the true glory of the Prime...

Petitions: Treatment for Gastroparesis (19 Nov 2012)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I have a petition signed by more than 4,000 residents of North East Somerset to the honourable House of Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled.

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Does the Lord Chancellor recall that in the reign of Henry VIII it was made high treason to take an appeal outside this kingdom? Has not the time come for this Parliament once more to legislate to prohibit appeals to foreign courts and to prohibit the judgments of foreign courts leading our judiciary?

New Clause 1 — Use of fraudulent parking badge (9 Nov 2012)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: It also occurs to me that a lot of people who have disabled badges are elderly and have memory lapses. Therefore, they may have forgotten who they are and may inadvertently be using a badge that had been stolen.

Free School Meals (Children Over the Age of 16): Banking Union and Economic and Monetary Union (6 Nov 2012)

Brooks Newmark: I am delighted to follow my hon. Friend the Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg), who is perhaps one of the most articulate Members on the Government Benches. I am not going to argue the whys and wherefores of whether we should bring financial regulation back to this country. That is an important question, and I totally agree with my hon. Friend the Member for South...

Free School Meals (Children Over the Age of 16): European Union (Croatian Accession and Irish Protocol) Bill (6 Nov 2012)

David Lidington: The right hon. Gentleman will forgive me; I think the House would want me to make progress. My hon. Friend the Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg) asked about the lack of action on a police law. In about a week to eight days’ time—well ahead of the proposed Committee stage of the Bill—I will make available to the Committees and in the Library the detailed...

Prayers: Antarctic Bill (2 Nov 2012)

Mark Simmonds: ...Bills, is merely a ratification of what has already been signed up to, so we anticipate no significant issues or problems there. In response to the question of my hon.
