Bill Presented — European Union Act 2011 (Amendment) Bill: Access to a Lawyer (7 Sep 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Is this not also a classic example of the European ratchet? First the European arrest warrant allows British subjects going about their lawful business in their own country to be arrested by foreign Governments; then it is decided that there must be basic standards to protect them from such action, because that is only fair and proper; and that then leads to the conclusion that there must be...

Public Confidence in the Media and Police (20 Jul 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: The Prime Minister has shown in his statement that his private office has behaved with absolutely compelling propriety, which compares amazingly favourably with sofa government. I wonder whether he would agree that the row over this is broadly synthetic and hugely over-egged.

Bill Presented — Cycles (protective Headgear for Children) Bill: Clause 7 — Review by Royal Trustees of Sovereign Grant (14 Jul 2011)

Thomas Docherty: I am not sure whether I have more trepidation when I follow the hon. Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg) or when I follow my hon. Friend the Member for Bolsover (Mr Skinner). It is slightly ironic that we are having this debate in one of the royal palaces, and perhaps we should recognise the contribution that the royal household makes to the upkeep of some of the rather...

Bill Presented — Cycles (protective Headgear for Children) Bill: Clause 1 — The Sovereign Grant (14 Jul 2011)

Bill Cash: ...a cut-price monarchy and a lavish monarchy. Given Her Majesty’s incredibly distinguished performance over the past nearly 60 years, to which my hon. Friend the Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg) referred, does he appreciate that this is not about being lavish, but about effectiveness and dignity?

Youth Employment: Clause 1 — Polling days for parliamentary general elections (13 Jul 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Will the Minister explain a couple of things? First, is there another example in legislation of a motion being laid down for Parliament to follow, or is it an innovation? Secondly, who will determine whether the motion has been passed in the correct form? Will it be a matter for the courts?

Civil List (30 Jun 2011)

Justine Greening: ...who support her in her official capacity, will continue to play a vital role in representing and promoting the UK and the Commonwealth. I know that my hon. Friend the Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg) would agree wholeheartedly that it is right to provide the royal household with stable and sufficient support in those duties. As I have pointed out, the royal household has...

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: BSkyB (30 Jun 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: May I note a paternal interest, Mr Speaker? As BSkyB has been de facto controlled by News Corp since it was founded, are not these arrangements making it more independent, and some might say more impartial, than the state broadcaster, and therefore is not this row somewhat synthetic?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: House of Lords Reform (27 Jun 2011)

Andrew George: ...itself. I have a great passion for democracy, but we do not need to democratise everything that moves. What we are about is improving the primacy of this Chamber. The hon. Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg), who is no longer in his place, rightly emphasised that properly to have a debate about the need for this Chamber to function effectively we need to establish a written...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: European Council (27 Jun 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: May I congratulate the Prime Minister on the most successful defence of British interests at a European summit since the halcyon days of the noble Baroness Thatcher? Will he turn his negotiating firepower on the Commission’s proposal to increase its own resources tax base?

Pensions Bill [Lords] (20 Jun 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: May I declare an interest as a trustee of the Conservative agents’ pension fund, and my other registered interests? Does my hon. Friend agree that Labour Members are opposing this because they are deeply embarrassed that they failed to increase the retirement age when they were in government? A much preferable approach is that followed by my right hon. Friend the Member for Hitchin and...

Prayers: Employment Opportunities Bill (17 Jun 2011)

Mark Prisk: ...fellow Deputy Speaker. We visited small business in Wellingborough, asylum seekers in Zimbabwe, and, at one point, the Victorian age, possibly in person, though my hon. Friend the Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg) is not here now. Two topics which I suspect, although I am happy to be corrected, may be popular on a Friday morning—the EU and IPSA—also seemed able...

Drugs (Roadside Testing) Bill (10 Jun 2011)

James Brokenshire: impairment in the debate, there has been no impairment in the contributions, although I could not see from my place on the Front Bench whether my hon. Friend the Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg) was delivering his speech while standing on one leg. I think I can safely say, however, that if my hon. Friend the Member for Bury North (Mr Nuttall) had attempted to do that,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Deputy Prime Minister: Topical Questions (24 May 2011)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I wonder whether the Deputy Prime Minister has noticed that if proportional representation is used for a reformed House of Lords, the Liberal Democrats will almost always hold the balance of power in the other place. Does he intend to make being Deputy Prime Minister a job for life?
