Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Paul Blomfield: ...for that lies with the Prime Minister. It is deeply irresponsible to put our nuclear industry at risk because of a reckless and ideological decision to make the future role of the ECJ a red line in all matters relating to Brexit. As hon. Members have pointed out, and as the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy said in his opening remarks, the Bill provides for...

Iran: Vauxhall (Redundancies) (16 Oct 2017)

Rebecca Long-Bailey: the plant were on hold until negotiations on the UK’s future with the European Union had become clearer.” Can the Minister therefore confirm whether PSA has sought Nissan-style assurances from the Government’s Brexit strategy?

Iran (16 Oct 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: ...the folly of breaking from our natural friends and allies in Europe and throwing in our lot with an unpredictable and irrational American President?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Residency Rights (EU Nationals) (16 Oct 2017)

Joanna Cherry: Scotland does not want to lose the benefit of freedom of movement.

Ben Bradshaw: The Minister’s former immigration director, David Wood, said last week that, with current resources, the challenge of Brexit “can’t be met”, and that is with a minimum two-year transition, let alone the chaos of a no-deal scenario.

Matthew Hancock: ...the debate could not be more important. The digital revolution is one of the biggest things happening to this country and the world.

Well, I think we could liken the debate to an anorak because in...

Business of the House (12 Oct 2017)

Pete Wishart: ...the business for next week. Well, that was a successful conference recess for the right hon. Lady and her party! They have all returned full of peace, love and understanding, all united—well, the Brexiteers are all united against the Chancellor anyway. We desperately need an urgent debate about the consequences of a no-deal hard Brexit if that lot are seriously contemplating going...

International Trade: Trade White Paper (12 Oct 2017)

Hannah Bardell: White Papers are all good and well, but yesterday the Scottish Government published a report showing what is at stake for business as the UK edges closer to the Brexit cliff edge. We know that the Secretary of State has consulted the business community to find out how it will be affected, but will he commit today to publishing the findings, as called for by a range of MPs across the House,...

Finance Bill: Business Investment Relief (11 Oct 2017)

Kirsty Blackman: ...that household debt is spiralling and that their savings are going down. If the Tories are doing such a good job, why are people poorer as a result?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Oct 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: Sadly, universal credit is only one of a string of failures of this Government. Everywhere we look we see a Government in chaos.
