Business of the House (1 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: ...for it a completely different arrangement—one that I have described as a constitutional revolution. It is not a novelty, as it was described just now, or, as the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) said the other day, a technical innovation. The problem goes back to the reason for the rule and the Standing Order. Government business takes precedence for one simple reason:...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act (25 Mar 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: ...highest total since 2003. As a magnanimous rugby fan, may I very much congratulate Wales on winning the six nations grand slam, Scotland on retaining the Calcutta cup in a breathtaking game at Twickenham on Saturday, and last but by no means least—I am sporting my Northampton Saints jacket today—my own local team on winning the premiership rugby cup? Finally, I would like to wish those...

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (12 Mar 2019)

Owen Paterson: ...regime or our regulatory regime. Under this proposal, we will not have control of either. There are huge advantages to trading with the outside world. I do not agree with the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable), because the European Union itself says that 90% of world growth will be outside the European Union. We have drawn down from 61% of our trade being with the EU to...

Privatised Probation System (4 Mar 2019)

John Bercow: Order. Speaking to school students in Twickenham on Friday, and subsequently giving a talk at Royal Holloway College, London University, in Egham, I referenced the hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull East (Karl Turner), not least for his tendency to yell “Shocking!” “It’s a disgrace,” or, alternatively, “Be’ave!” at the Treasury Bench. I think that the hon. Gentleman’s...

Business of the House (Today): Proxy Voting (28 Jan 2019)

In the future,...

Business of the House (Today): No Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (16 Jan 2019)

Michael Gove: them and, as far as the fishing people of Scotland are concerned, literally has nothing to say. I must now turn to the speech from the leader of the Liberal Democrats, the right hon.

This from a party that was...

Exiting the European Union: Meaningful Vote (11 Dec 2018)

Bernard Jenkin: is the very antithesis of taking back control, but the truth we have to face is that the result of this referendum was not some “exotic spresm,” as expressed by the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable), or any other kind of freak accident. It was the logical expression of the accumulation of decades of resentment about how this country has become subject to an...

Business of the House (6 Dec 2018)

Valerie Vaz: and red tie one day. While he was speaking to the House, they found something sticking out of his trousers, which led the TV commentator to say it was his tie.

Monday is Human Rights Day. The Attorney...
