Tuition Fees: EU Students (29 Apr 2019)

Suella Braverman: Does my hon. Friend agree that, post Brexit, we want to continue to attract bright students from many countries all over the world? The proposal that we should exempt EU students from paying fees yet impose them on those from other countries is inherently unfair and, in fact, discriminatory. It does not make economic sense or reflect the open Britain that we are striving to create.

Education: Topical Questions (24 Jun 2019)

Suella Braverman: Hook-with-Warsash primary school has 60 pupils in reception, but they have only one toilet between them. I think that you would consider that unacceptable, Mr Speaker, as do I. Will the Secretary of State look again at the school’s application—which has been rejected four times—and work with me to see how we can find some resources to provide what is a necessity, not a luxury?

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Brexit (26 Oct 2018)

Suella Braverman: We have agreed a fair financial settlement with the EU as part of the draft Withdrawal Agreement. It reflects the UK paying its share of the outstanding EU commitments made during the period of our membership. Our estimate, based on reasonable assumptions and publicly available data, is that it will fall within the range of £35-39bn and the National Audit Office confirmed in April 2018 that...

Exiting the European Union: Leaving the EU: Legislation (25 Oct 2018)

Suella Braverman: The Government take very seriously the concerns of local authorities when it comes to Brexit preparations. I have met local government leaders all over the country to talk about the subject. I am glad that the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government has set up a Brexit delivery board to co-ordinate the work of local authorities and Government on preparations for...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Visas (5 Nov 2018)

Suella Braverman: The Secretary of State meets regularly with Michel Barnier and his EU counterparts to discuss the issues related to our exit. We are seeking to agree a reciprocal framework for mobility with the EU which will allow people to travel visa-free for tourism and temporary business activities. Leaving without a deal is in neither side’s interests: we remain confident the UK and EU will agree a...

Streatham Incident (3 Feb 2020)

Suella Braverman: When I was Treasury counsel, I acted for the Government in various parole cases in which the Human Rights Act 1998 was often a feature. Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that strained interpretations of the Human Rights Act have served to undermine the delicate balance of rights versus responsibility, and that we now need an approach that means that national security and public...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Customs Unions (9 May 2018)

Suella Braverman: The Government has confirmed that when we bring forward the vote on the final deal, we will ensure that Parliament is presented with the appropriate analysis to make an informed decision. Given that we are yet to conclude our negotiations with the EU, it would not be practical or appropriate to set out the details of exactly how the Government will provide analysis on the various elements...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Brexit (24 Jul 2018)

Suella Braverman: As set out in Paragraph 5 of Chapter 4, the details of each individual agreement will be subject to negotiation with the EU. Some will be legally binding, for instance, components of the economic partnership such as a core Free Trade Agreement (FTA) and various agreements that will comprise the security partnership. Whether an agreement should be legally binding is ultimately dependent on...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Immigration Controls: EU Countries (4 Sep 2018)

Suella Braverman: In the Department’s White Paper: The future relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union, the Government has said that the UK will seek reciprocal arrangements with the EU that ensure smooth passage for UK nationals when they travel to the EU, for example on business or on holiday. The details of these arrangements will be discussed as part of our ongoing negotiations with...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Department for Exiting the European Union: Public Appointments (1 Oct 2018)

Suella Braverman: The Department does not hold any data on the socio-economic background of people appointed to senior positions. The Civil Service is currently looking at the best way to start implementing the measures published earlier in June across Government Departments, to better understand the background of people appointed in senior positions. The Government is committed to social mobility, and we are...

Health and Social Care: NHS Facilities (15 Jan 2019)

Suella Braverman: Fareham Community Hospital is seeing increased usage these days, thanks to local GPs working together to provide a same-day access scheme. However, patients are disappointed about the lack of a mobile breast screening unit on site. Will my right hon. Friend join me in calling on community health partnerships and Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust to explore ways of providing that vital service,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Support for Pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (11 Mar 2019)

Suella Braverman: The Federation of Heathfield and St Francis Special Schools provides invaluable learning opportunities for more than 200 children with special educational needs in Fareham. Will the Minister join me in paying tribute to the inspirational head, Steve Hollinghurst, whose record of service spans 36 years, and will he set out what further support there is for these essential schools so that they...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Planning Applications: Economic Opportunities and Housing Need (17 Jun 2019)

Suella Braverman: Planning applications that could deliver hundreds of new homes in Fareham are in limbo following advice from Natural England, which has instructed that planning permission should be refused unless developments are nitrate-neutral, after two rulings from the European Court of Justice. Will the Government work with me to look at suspending house building targets while affected councils work to...

Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Feb 2020)

Suella Braverman: The terrorist incident last week reminds us that the rule of law remains a fundamental foundation of our democratic constitution, but the explosion of judicial review and judicial activism has led to a censoriousness and litigiousness in our society and has distorted questions that ought to remain exclusively political. How will my right hon. Friend ensure that Parliament remains the...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Portsmouth Port (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: Ministers from across Government have carried out an extensive ongoing programme of engagement on EU exit - with businesses and industry bodies from all sectors of the economy and in all parts of the UK. In January 2017, Lord Bridges visited Portsmouth and attended a roundtable with local businesses to seek their perspective. Ministers have also met with representatives from a range of UK...

Suella Braverman: Ministers in my Department and across Government continue to engage with companies from all sectors and across the country - including with the car manufacturing sector - to hear their priorities and issues as we leave the European Union. In July we hosted a business engagement event at Chevening House. Representatives from the automotive manufacturing sector with a presence in the West...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Family Courts: Domestic Abuse (23 Jul 2019)

Suella Braverman: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, if he will launch an independent inquiry into family courts in England and Wales to establish (a) how victims of domestic violence are treated, (b) whether the process under which parents convicted of domestic violence are given access to children is adequate and (c) whether the courts should be more transparent in their handling of domestic violence...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: British Nationals Abroad and EU Nationals (18 Oct 2018)

Suella Braverman: The Prime Minister has been clear that in the unlikely event that we reach March 2019 without agreeing a deal, we want EU citizens to stay and their rights will be protected. Ministers and Ambassadors have been engaging across the EU to stress that we would expect the same treatment for UK nationals in the EU, should we not reach a deal. Most recently Minister Robin Walker stressed this in...

Exiting the European Union: Fishermen (25 Oct 2018)

Suella Braverman: All European maritime and fisheries fund projects approved before the UK leaves the EU will be fully funded under the Treasury guarantee, even when those projects are not completed by the UK exit date. Work is under way to consider the long-term future of all the programmes that are currently EU funded. Leaving the EU means that we will want to take our own decisions about how to deliver the...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Customs Unions (14 May 2018)

Suella Braverman: If the UK were to remain part of the EU Customs Union, our trade policy would, as a consequence, be determined by the EU. Some third countries have highlighted this issue. For example, in March 2018 the then Australian High Commissioner publicly said that if we were to the leave the EU but remain within the Customs Union, “all Australia’s trade negotiating would be done through Brussels...
