Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Angela Eagle: After two wasted years of wrangling with her own Cabinet and her own party, the Prime Minister has come back from Brussels with her deeply flawed and unacceptable EU withdrawal deal. And she has achieved the impossible: she has united the country in horror against it. According to all the official forecasts, this is a draft treaty that will make our country poorer. Far from taking back...

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Angela Eagle: And we are all grateful for that. In the event, the Prime Minister squandered three months’ negotiating time and the first Conservative majority for 25 years. This Prime Minister has repeatedly invoked her own partisan definition of “the national interest” when, in truth, she has acted at all times in the narrow sectional interest of her own deeply divided party. That is why her belated...

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Angela Eagle: Does my right hon. Friend agree that that kind of arrangement really puts this country over a barrel in the subsequent trade arrangements, because such a time limit weakens our position and makes it far less likely that we will be able to come to a good conclusion?

Exiting the European Union: US Trade (6 Dec 2018)

Angela Eagle: I repeat the question from the hon. Member for Lichfield (Michael Fabricant), because the Minister did not answer it. He surely has to confirm at the Dispatch Box that the deal means that any trade deals that might be signed cannot be implemented until we are out of the customs union and single market. He just has to get up and say that that is true.

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

Angela Eagle: Will the Prime Minister give way?

Leaving the Eu: Economic Analysis (28 Nov 2018)

Angela Eagle: The Government, like a third-rate conjurer, hope that if they produce a range of examples for scenarios that are not going to happen, such as no deal or Chequers, somehow we will be taken in by it. Is it not about time the Government do what the House asks them to do, whether on legal advice publication or giving us the facts to make the decision, so that this House can take back control on...

Leaving the EU (26 Nov 2018)

Angela Eagle: In the Prime Minister’s lexicon, is “smooth and orderly” the new “strong and stable”?

Progress on EU Negotiations (22 Nov 2018)

Angela Eagle: Will the Prime Minister now admit that extending the aspirations into a political declaration that is 19 pages longer than the original series of aspirations is not actually a deal? When will she reach a deal so that, when we vote to leave through the withdrawal Act, we will know where we are leaving to? And whatever happened to frictionless trade? It is not mentioned at all in her list of...

EU Exit Negotiations (15 Nov 2018)

Angela Eagle: Will the Prime Minister now recognise that she made a catastrophic error when she decided to kowtow to the fantasy extremist beliefs of the Brexiteers in her own party, instead of bringing the country together? Their views are impossible to bring about, and they are now openly plotting against her after she has tried to do her best in the negotiation. Surely she now needs to listen to the...

Delegated Legislation: Exiting the European Union (Financial Services and Markets) (14 Nov 2018)

Angela Eagle: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. The Prime Minister is obviously pretty caught up with the Cabinet at the moment; the rumours are that she has got on to only the third of the Cabinet Ministers to speak, so this could go on for a little time. However, we do have all the time up to 7 pm, which would give her time to come to the House and get the constitutional proprieties right on the...

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (13 Nov 2018)

Angela Eagle: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. I speak as a non-lawyer. Can you confirm that although this is a Government who do not vote when they think they are going to lose, they nevertheless have a duty to honour the motion passed by the House, because it is not just an expression of the Opposition’s view but effective?

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (13 Nov 2018)

Angela Eagle: I thank my right hon. and learned Friend for giving way. Does he agree that the unprecedented nature of the meaningful vote that this House will have in the event of a withdrawal agreement being made makes it imperative for those of us who have to make that decision to have access to the Attorney General’s best view and his legal advice as to what the implications of that decision are?

Local Government Funding: Merseyside (30 Oct 2018)

Angela Eagle: Will the Minister give way?

Local Government Funding: Merseyside (30 Oct 2018)

Angela Eagle: Thank you for calling me to speak, Mr Hollobone. I would like to add to the congratulations to my sister, my hon. Friend the Member for Garston and Halewood (Maria Eagle), on securing this debate at such an important time. As she has pointed out, local authorities in general have seen a cut of nearly 50% to their budgets, but local authorities in Merseyside have suffered even greater cuts....

Local Government Funding: Merseyside (30 Oct 2018)

Angela Eagle: Does my hon. Friend recognise the experience in Wirral with the roll-out of universal credit? That has led to a need for 30 extra tonnes of food and created a 32% increase in the use of food banks because of the hardship that it has caused.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Angela Eagle: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the cuts to education that have left 22 out of 26 Wallasey schools facing cuts and that have seen £3 million cut from their budgets, while teachers are earning £4,000 a year less and having to do more, are an absolute disgrace, and that that demonstrates that this Government give no priority whatsoever to the future of our children?
