Major Incident in Essex (23 Oct 2019)

Anna Soubry: The Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition and the Home Secretary have clearly expressed the nation’s concern and horror at what has happened. It is a terrible tragedy. Of course a police investigation is ongoing so we should not speculate, but I think we are all entitled to reach a number of conclusions about what has happened. It is not the first time that this has happened and we...

Debate on the Address: Public Services (16 Oct 2019)

Anna Soubry: ...policy was to reduce the prison population by the careful introduction of all manner of sentences and by the support of suspended sentences, which have great power. Is not the real way to help our police to ensure that our criminal justice service is fit for purpose? It needs huge investment and for our courts to be able to hear trials quickly. At the moment, there is two years’ of delay...

Domestic Abuse Bill (2 Oct 2019)

Anna Soubry: ...have practised at the criminal Bar or as solicitors will know, it is still all too common a story today. I have two quick questions that I hope he can answer. First, will this Act ensure that our police change their attitude? He is right to talk about the courts and the judiciary, but what about our police, who I fear still think of these instances as “domestics”? Secondly, will he...

Previous Business – Commons: Select Committee (21 May 2019)

Health (14 May 2019)

Anna Soubry: ...that he listen to the experts and the evidence, because I suspect they will say that we must continue to invest to make sure those reductions continue and to take account of any eventualities. Police spending is a good example of how Government can cut too far.

National Security Council Leak (2 May 2019)

Anna Soubry: ...information because of his personal ambition and because of the crisis that exists in government. I do not think there is any question at all—no ifs, no buts—that this matter has to go to the police. In that event, will the Minister undertake that the Government will fully co-operate at all levels—including all Ministers, aides and officials, including special advisers—in that...

Rape Victims: Disclosure of Evidence (29 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: (Urgent Question): To ask the Minister for Policing and the Fire Service whether he will make a statement on requests by the police for victims of rape to provide their mobile phone and other digital devices.

Rape Victims: Disclosure of Evidence (29 Apr 2019)

Anna Soubry: ...should be made? Will the Minister withdraw any document that states—and condemn all assertions—that cases will be dropped if the victim does not agree to hand over any material or device to the police? Does he agree that those threats are unacceptable? Will the Minister confirm that it is already the practice of Crown Court judges to ask, at the plea and trial preparation hearing,...

Points of Order (28 Mar 2019)

Anna Soubry: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I am not going to go into the details, but I have shown you an email that I have sent to a senior police officer and that the Leader of the House is only just getting the opportunity to read. I am not going to go into its contents, but I will say this, because I know that it will concern you, Mr Speaker. Yesterday, a member of staff, not from this place but...

Points of Order (27 Mar 2019)

Anna Soubry: ...the entrance itself, where the gates are into the tube station. In short, Mr Speaker, a number of us have done exactly what you have asked us to do. We have raised all of this with the senior police commander and directly with the gentleman whose name I have forgotten. The hon. Member for Cardiff South and Penarth did so in an email, as I know because I was copied in to it. Fine words—no...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (21 Jan 2019)

Anna Soubry: ..., and I am pleased it has been getting a warm welcome from both sides of the House, but I am hearing anecdotal evidence that the East Midlands Ambulance Service—and indeed Nottinghamshire police —are not properly using the existing laws. If that turns into hard evidence, would the Minister agree to meet to see what progress we can make?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Points of Order (16 Jan 2019)

Anna Soubry: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. A member of my staff was abused this morning as he sought to come to work. There were no police officers outside the Embankment entrance to Portcullis House. It was not just a random piece of abuse; he was called a “spineless” C-U-N-T. I will not use that word in any circumstances. There is no excuse for abusing him or any other member of staff in that...

Miscellaneous: Requirement to amend guidance (5 Sep 2018)

Anna Soubry: I rise purely to put on record that that has been done by Nottinghamshire police. I think it is the first force to do so, and we believe that the evidence is showing that it is having exactly the right effect on the police, in that they are taking this seriously and seeing it as an offence.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Anna Soubry: ...who say to me, “You’re doing a great job. Keep on going”, in the face of death threats which have meant that one of our number has had to attend a public engagement with six armed undercover police officers—that is the country that we have created and it has got to stop; and to the journalists who fight nobly for every cause but on this, this most important of issues, are mute. It...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Welsh Ministers — Power to make consequential and transitional provision (6 Dec 2017)

Anna Soubry: ...the terrible bomb that exploded in Birmingham when I was a child. I remember that, almost every night, my television screen was filled with terrible pictures of brave soldiers and remarkable police officers who were putting themselves absolutely on the frontline, and were doing so in a unique way. They were not engaged in some terror in another country; this was happening on their...

Business of the House (16 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: Will the Leader of the House confirm immediately that Nottinghamshire police is about to recruit—indeed, is recruiting—an extra 120 police officers?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (15 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: I would love to ignore death threats, but I actually find them quite frightening. As a result, I have in the past reported at least two to the police. The courts took it very seriously, I say gently to the hon. Lady. They sent one person to prison and suspended the other person’s custodial sentence. I am glad that some people in this place take it seriously.

Zimbabwe: Points of Order (15 Nov 2017)

Anna Soubry: ...for not bringing this to your attention sooner, but it has only just been brought to my attention. Would it be in order for you to comment on the fact that my office has just reported to the police about five tweets, if not more, that have issued threats against me following the front-page article of today’s The Daily Telegraph? Would you make it very clear to everybody, in whatever...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Oct 2017)

Anna Soubry: Nottinghamshire police has decided, without any consultation and with hardly any notice—literally, a note under the clerk’s door—to end community policing in Kimberley and Nuthall in my constituency. I do not expect the Minister to comment on the merits of the decision, but does he agree that in community policing, it is really important to work with and communicate with communities?

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Anna Soubry: Will my right hon. Friend confirm that the way we now operate police officers means that the old days of a police officer being an accredited firearms officer have completely changed? Now we effectively have squads of crack officers, who are properly trained in all aspects of serious policing, and who, frankly, do a far better job than we have seen for many a long year.
