Backbench Business — [12th Allotted Day]: Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (2 Dec 2010)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I would have supported the hon. Gentleman's amendment had Mr Speaker called it, because I thought its tone admirable. My point concerns the independence of any regulator of a sovereign Parliament. The difficulty is that, although that regulator may be independent in title, what the House of Commons gives by legislation it can take by legislation. Constitutionally, therefore, IPSA cannot be...

Women and Equalities: Winter Weather (2 Dec 2010)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Does the Secretary of State agree that in a country with a generally temperate climate, such things will happen from time to time, that it would be disproportionate to spend too much money preventing them, and that even this Government cannot control the weather?

Written Answers — Communities and Local Government: Local Government Finance: Somerset (2 Dec 2010)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what assessment he has made of the likely effects on his Department's funding for Bath and North East Somerset Council of the combined application of damping and freezing ring-fenced grants and moving into formula grant in 2011-12; what funding his Department provided for the Council in (a) 2009-10 and (b) 2010-11; what...

Public Libraries and Museums Act 1964 (Amendment): National Policy Statements (1 Dec 2010)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I wonder whether my hon. Friend might also emphasise the great importance of ensuring that energy is affordable for the poorest people in the country. There are some high-falutin' ideas that seem to add cost for consumers, and they should be opposed.

Public Libraries and Museums Act 1964 (Amendment): Clause 2 — Early parliamentary general elections (1 Dec 2010)

Bernard Jenkin: ...than I am. In recent years, however, the tension between the courts and the independence of this House has been thrown into relief. I remind the Committee of cases such as the one brought by Lord Rees-Mogg for judicial review of the ratification of the Maastricht treaty after this House had passed an Act of Parliament.

Grandparents (Access Rights): National Insurance Contributions Bill (23 Nov 2010)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Hear, hear!

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Second Reading (and remaining stages) (22 Nov 2010)

Viscount Trenchard: ...list. However, my noble friend did not mention one point. A substantial part of the Bill is intended to replace technical aspects of our law with European law. As my honourable friend Jacob Rees-Mogg pointed out in another place, Clauses 5, 6, 14, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22 and 23 are, in whole or in part, requirements of the European Union. Furthermore, related to what my noble friend Lord Newby...

Public Services (Social Enterprise and Social Value) Bill (19 Nov 2010)

Chris White: ...Harriett Baldwin), for Bedford (Richard Fuller), for Wycombe (Steve Baker), for Ipswich (Ben Gummer), for Castle Point (Rebecca Harris), for Congleton (Fiona Bruce), for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg), for Christchurch (Mr Chope) and for East Surrey (Mr Gyimah). We can all agree on some things. There are nuances of ideology, but I am sure that we agree that we all enter politics for...

Backbench Business — [9th allotted day]: Immigration (18 Nov 2010)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I wish to raise, once again, the point of immigration from the European Union and whether it is realistic just to focus on immigration from outside the EEA or whether we have to look at our treaty obligations to the EU. I know that my hon. and learned Friend is a member of the European Scrutiny Committee and pays close attention to these matters.

Scottish Parliament: West Fife Enterprise (17 Nov 2010)

Christopher Harvie: ...—and for good—in the days when the oil runs out. It is worth concluding with one bizarre anecdote that came my way today about a former Conservative candidate for the area. He is one Jacob Rees-Mogg, who contested the constituency—not with notable success—in 1997 and, interviewed by someone from The Times, contributed this: "My nanny will come up to campaign for me and look after...

Sustainable Livestock Bill (12 Nov 2010)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: When I was a child, I had a mug that detailed the wonderful and famous lines: "Let the wealthy and great Roll in splendour and state. I envy them not, I declare it, For I eat my own lamb, My own chickens and ham; I shear my own fleece and I wear it. I have lawns; I have bowers. I have fruits; I have flowers, The lark is my morning alarmer. So jolly boys now, Here's God speed the plough. Long...

Support and Protection for Elderly People and Adults at Risk of Abuse: European Union Economic Governance (10 Nov 2010)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: But does Mr Van Rompuy's report not suggest that there should be a binding minimum set of requirements for national fiscal frameworks that would apply to all member states?

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill (Programme) (No. 4): Clause 11 — number and distribution of seats (1 Nov 2010)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I wish to speak to my amendment 207, but first may I say how much I agreed with the hon. Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant)-I am surprised to be saying it, but he will be even more surprised-who spoke a great deal of sense about not making constituencies purely numerical compartmentalisations? This country has such a rich history of communities, and when it is a case of a few hundred here or...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Economic Governance (EU) (27 Oct 2010)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: The Minister has drawn our attention to paragraph 18 of the report. I am curious about paragraph 16, which refers to "New reputational and political measures", including the threat of "enhanced surveillance". Would the British fiscal position be subject to enhanced surveillance in certain circumstances, and what would that mean?

Parliament (Amendment): Savings Accounts and Health in Pregnancy Grant Bill (26 Oct 2010)

Kerry McCarthy: ...truly knowing her subject and caring passionately about it. My constituency neighbour-in all other senses he is probably from another planet from me- the hon. Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg), talked about these measures involving "pitiful" amounts that are "too small" to make a difference. It may be that in the world that he inhabits these sums are pitiful, but I ask him...

Lawful Industrial Action (Minor Errors) Bill (22 Oct 2010)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Listening to the debate on the Bill since just after Prayers this morning has been of great interest, as have the points that have arisen and been made by hon. Members on either side. However, I ought to start with a point made by the hon. Member for Hayes and Harlington (John McDonnell), who said that we were in some kind of new politics. I think we should be very suspicious of that phrase,...

Police Terms and Conditions of Service (Redundancy): Clause 9 — Number and distribution of seats (20 Oct 2010)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Mr Evans, thank you so much for calling me. It has been enlightening, educational and a real honour to listen to this debate since we last divided the House some hours ago. I have listened to some fine speeches. The hon. Member for Bassetlaw (John Mann) put his case with such pith and moment that I was almost persuaded to vote against my own side. The spectre that arose before us was one so...

House of Commons Disqualification (Amendment): Clause 8 — Reports of the Boundary Commissions (19 Oct 2010)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I am puzzled that the hon. Gentleman agrees with the suggestion that a Member of Parliament who knows that 50% of those attending his surgeries are not registered does nothing about it. Why does he not point out to the people who attend his surgeries but fail to be on the register that they are breaking the law? If the issue is as simple as that, something can be done about it.

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Schedule 2 — Rules for conduct of the referendum (18 Oct 2010)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I am slightly puzzled as to why schools attached to religious establishments in Northern Ireland should be excluded, but not those in England and Wales. I can think of a number of Roman Catholic schools attached to monasteries that it might be wise to exclude in the amendments.

Bill Presented: London Local Authorities Bill [ Lords] (By Order) (13 Oct 2010)

Philip Davies: I am rather nervous about contributing to the debate, following my hon. Friends the Members for Christchurch (Mr Chope) and for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg), who expertly filleted the Bill in a way that I could not possibly do. I shall not spend a great deal of time adding to their comments, but I shall make a few brief points My hon. Friend the Member for North East Somerset is...
