Points of Order: [7th Allotted Day] (11 Jan 2019)

David Tredinnick: ...(Sir Bernard Jenkin) and my right hon. Friend the Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Mr Duncan Smith). They should have been here to listen to the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) demolish the argument for leaving on WTO terms, pointing out that he worked as part of the WTO during the Doha round and has therefore seen for himself the weakness of its dispute...

Islamophobia - Motion to Take Note (20 Dec 2018)

Baroness Uddin: ...the world, you are a citizen of nowhere. You don’t understand what citizenship means”. These sentiments raised widespread concern at the time, as was argued by the now Liberal Democrat leader, Vince Cable, who said that the PM’s words were regrettably reminiscent of anti-Jewish hatred in the previous century. He shared the opinion of many in recognising that the PM’s blatant brand...

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

Bernard Jenkin: ...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 out-of-touch political...

Petition - Funding of the Avon and Somerset Police Force: South Western Railway Franchise (5 Dec 2018)

Andrew Jones: I congratulate the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) on securing this debate. He covered a lot of ground and issues in his short speech, and he has brought insight and local knowledge. He is right, as are other hon. and right hon. Members, to speak up for the passengers they represent. The South Western Railway franchise is enormous, handling more than 400,000 passengers a...

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Zac Goldsmith: ...mean in practical terms? The withdrawal agreement has united leavers and remainers in an extraordinary manner. I shared a platform a few weeks ago with the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable), my constituency neighbour, and it was the first time in two years that we have agreed on something relating to the EU. We have known for some time that this deal has virtually no...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: 1st Allotted Day (4 Dec 2018)

Owen Paterson: in any customs territory like that because it is a breach of the promise to the people, and we will never do trade deals around the world. Sadly, the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) is not in his place; it is pathetic to say that we cannot do trade deals with India, America and China, when we are the great international country and these people want to buy from us....

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Saudi Arabia (4 Dec 2018)

Tom Brake: I am sure that the Foreign Secretary is aware that my right hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) yesterday asked the Prime Minister whether she would make an appeal for clemency on behalf of the 12 men who currently face imminent execution. Is the Foreign Secretary or the Prime Minister willing to do that?

Interpol Presidency Election (20 Nov 2018)

Emily Thornberry: Mr Speaker, thank you for granting this urgent question; I congratulate the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) on securing it. On this day a fortnight ago, the right hon. Gentleman and I found ourselves on opposite sides of the table at the Cambridge Union in a debate about whether the special relationship with America was dead. I am glad to say that the students sided with...

Finance (No. 3) Bill: Basic rate limit and personal allowance (19 Nov 2018)

Leo Docherty: It is an honour to follow the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable). I welcome the Bill. As we consider the amendments, we are faced with a stark choice that faces all politicians and members of the public when they consider the basic question of how we manage our economy and how we manage tax and spending. It is the stark choice between responsibility and recklessness. If we...

Scottish Parliament: Proposed European Union Withdrawal Agreement (15 Nov 2018)

Michael Russell: ...but to no avail. What is to be done? First, we should take some heart from a major development this week, when the leaders of all the Opposition parties at Westminster, including Jeremy Corbyn and Vince Cable, took action to ensure that there will be the opportunity for other proposals to be put when the so-called “meaningful vote” is held. Many alternatives might be considered,...

Economy: Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (13 Nov 2018)

Lord Shipley: ...with no sign of a long-term strategy, particularly in relation to the need to find more money for adult social care. I agree with all those who have said that taxes will have to rise. As my leader, Vince Cable, said, we need a mature debate about that because it will involve people paying more tax. I agree with the noble Lord, Lord Wood of Anfield, who earlier this afternoon raised the...

Finance (No. 3) Bill (12 Nov 2018)

Robert Jenrick: ..., we intend to review the consequences of the new worldwide harmonised light vehicle test procedure on vehicle excise duty and report back in the spring. The right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) spoke of the need to incentivise further business investment, particularly at this important moment in the Brexit negotiations. I am sure he will welcome the increase in the annual...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Apprenticeships (12 Nov 2018)

Ed Vaizey: Surprisingly, my question is a segue to that asked by my old boss, the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable). Apprenticeships are a great success story for this Government, although they are being terribly undermined by the clunking fist that is the apprenticeship levy. Will the Minister look specifically at the position in the film industry, where apprenticeships do not last...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (1 Nov 2018)

Elizabeth Truss: on our Front Bench. It is not an accident that we have seen an additional £100 billion coming into the public purse in this Budget. Contrary to what the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) suggests, this is not a fluke or luck. It is because of the decisions that this Government have taken since 2010: reforming the welfare system, cutting taxes for people, and cutting...

Scottish Parliament: Asylum Seekers (1 Nov 2018)

Alex Cole-Hamilton: ...other amendments. We will, of course, support the Conservative amendment, and I can indicate our support for the Labour amendment in particular. We have heard a lot about the situation in Glasgow. Vince Cable, our federal leader, has set out a five-point plan for the Liberal Democrats on outsourcing. One of the clear red lines that he has set is that there are sensitive areas where the...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (United Kingdom Referendum) (26 Sep 2018)

Michael Russell: ...Dixon from the people’s vote campaign, which was an interesting and informative step forward. I commend that type of constructive engagement to Mr Rennie. I note that Mr Rennie’s party leader, Vince Cable—I think that he is still the leader—demanded at the start of the recent Liberal Democrat conference that the SNP back a people’s vote, but also demanded that the people of...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Local Government Funding Allocation (23 Jul 2018)

Rishi Sunak: ..., in the short term, the Government will soon be publishing a technical consultation for local government finance in the upcoming settlement. As I said to the right hon.
