Electoral Commission Investigation: Vote Leave (17 Jul 2018)

Angela Eagle: I feel slightly sorry for the Minister, because she has been sent to defend the indefensible. Given her complacent demeanour today and her complete lack of acknowledgement about how serious this issue is, can she tell us quite how big a scandal would have to be before she actually reacted to it appropriately?

Nato Summit (16 Jul 2018)

Angela Eagle: The American President seems to prefer unilateral action to multilateral action. He seems to want to be protectionist and inward-looking—to put America first, as he says—rather than to engage multilaterally. What implications does the Prime Minister think that approach has for the NATO alliance?

Eu: Future Relationship White Paper (12 Jul 2018)

Angela Eagle: The White Paper says very little about the service industry, particularly financial services, except that we want to retain our access to integrated markets while not really sticking to the rules. Is that not more like having your cake and eating it, and is it not highly unlikely that the EU will ever agree to such an approach?

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Angela Eagle: Does my hon. Friend agree that, while DWP staff are remarkably good at the job they do, they must have the tools they need to do that job, and many are frustrated that they do not have them?

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Angela Eagle: It is hard to overstate the rolling catastrophe that is universal credit and the abject misery and hardship that it represents not only to my constituents but to those of many other right hon. and hon. Members. As page 19 of the NAO report demonstrates, the system is so beleaguered that, while the original plan was for more than 7 million households to be on universal credit by now, the...

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Angela Eagle: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Angela Eagle: Does the hon. Gentleman see, as I do, a pattern of reluctance on the part of this Government to collect evidence and information precisely so that they can deny the effects of universal credit, and somehow pretend that the evidence that is accumulating is anecdotal?

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Angela Eagle: The oddly named Chequers agreement fell apart after a weekend and is now the Chequers disagreement, as the Prime Minister’s Cabinet disintegrates before our eyes. Will she tell the House how on earth she is going to persuade the European Union to agree to her disagreement when her own Cabinet does not agree with it?

Universal Credit (5 Jul 2018)

Angela Eagle: I suspect that the Secretary of State decided that she had to come to the House to apologise when she received the unprecedented open letter from the Comptroller and Auditor General pointing out that she had used—let us say—not correct assertions on three occasions about a report that her own officials had agreed. Will she now finally admit that she has got things very wrong on...

LGBT Action Plan (3 Jul 2018)

Angela Eagle: Does the Minister agree that, while we have made great progress in ensuring that rights are equal in law, we have a lot more to do to ensure that they are equal in practice? Does she also agree that we are now experiencing something of a backlash, of which the LGBT community—and particularly the trans community—are at the forefront? Will she say a bit more about how she and her...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval of the outcome of negotiations with the EU (20 Jun 2018)

Angela Eagle: I thank my right hon. and learned Friend for giving way. At least he has allowed someone from this side to make an intervention, which the Secretary of State did not have the decency to do. Will he explain what on earth a meaningful vote would mean if there was a Hobson’s choice Brexit—a choice between the deal we have done or no deal at all? Is not avoiding a Hobson’s...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jun 2018)

Angela Eagle: The last Labour Government oversaw a 5.9% increase in spending on the NHS. The Thatcher and Major Governments managed 3.6%. So far, the Prime Minister’s predecessor, David Cameron, and the right hon. Lady herself have managed 1.9%. Why, therefore, are we meant to be happy and amazed by her unfunded pledge to deliver an increase of 3.4%, which is under the annual average achieved since...

Health and Social Care: Personal Health and Care Budgets (19 Jun 2018)

Angela Eagle: While I agree with the philosophy and approach behind health and personal care budgets, will the Secretary of State acknowledge that the 21% fall in social care funding between 2010 and 2015-16 has caused a catastrophe in this area? Will he acknowledge that if this approach is to work in future, the funding has to be there?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Points of Order (13 Jun 2018)

Angela Eagle: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Will you confirm that where someone is named, as happened today, they have to leave the House for the remainder of the parliamentary business? I believe they also give up pay for the day. They certainly cannot vote in any proceedings that happen in the day, so the implication of what the leader of the SNP parliamentary group did today, apart from pull a...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Angela Eagle: My hon. Friend is making the points about a meaningful vote with a great deal of power. Does he agree that if we get to a stage—which I suspect some Eurosceptics want—where we are approaching a disorderly, no-deal, hardest-of-hard Brexits, this House has a right not to be given a fait accompli of a deal that is inadequate, or no deal at all? Is that not what this battle to have a...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Angela Eagle: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

G7 (11 Jun 2018)

Angela Eagle: Does the Prime Minister agree that never since the war has the international rules-based system been more at risk following the outcome of the G7 summit and particularly President Trump’s behaviour, with his tweet deck on Air Force One after he left? How does she think we can shore up the international rules-based system? All of us who study history know what the consequences of its...

Youth (Services and Provisions) (6 Jun 2018)

Angela Eagle: Not so very long ago.
