Windrush (2 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: And now I will take the extra minute.

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: I thank the hon. Lady, but that is not what this motion addresses. It is a bureaucratic, procedural thing. If it had espoused her very good arguments, I would not have any trouble with it, because I want to see change and I absolutely agree with her. I have been saying to the House for I do not know how long since the Windrush scandal broke that the problem runs deep into the policy. The...

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: The hon. and learned Lady is being very good in giving way. I agree with much of what she says, but she said that the Government “went after” the Windrush generation. The whole thing is a scandal, but would she accept and agree that nobody has deliberately gone after the Windrush generation? She is right about a culture—I will dwell on that in my speech—but nobody has deliberately...

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: Would the right hon. Lady like to find out? Will she give way?

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. Could the record show that there was no laughter on these Benches, as has just been alleged?

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: Shocking!

Breast Cancer Screening (2 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: My friend Emma Agnew, a woman in her own right but also known as “Mrs Aggers” because she is married to the cricket commentator Jonathan Agnew, is one of a remarkable group of women who have faced breast cancer and beaten it, but it must be said that she had huge support from her husband, and our thoughts are also with my hon. Friend the Member for Bexhill and Battle (Huw Merriman). Emma...

Windrush (30 Apr 2018)

Anna Soubry: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on his appointment and pay handsome tribute to his predecessor. The Windrush scandal really should not have taken us by surprise: it is the natural consequence of a system that has as its default position an assumption that a person is here illegally, with the onus being on the applicant to prove that they are here legally. That is the problem. A person has...

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Anna Soubry: Does my hon. Friend share my concern that so many Members do not even know what the customs union is? For example, while we have heard today that there are no other customs unions in the world, there are 12. As for state aid rules, we now know that the Government said on Monday that they would adopt all the state aid rules that we currently have as a member of the European Union.

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Anna Soubry: rose—

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Anna Soubry: No.

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Anna Soubry: I join all those who have spoken today, other than the hon. Member for Vauxhall (Kate Hoey), and endorse and embrace pretty much everything that has been so ably said. As my right hon. Friend the Member for Loughborough (Nicky Morgan) said, this is not just a simple case of our having a debate, which of course we should have had some time ago in order to assist the Government in this...

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Anna Soubry: The hon. Gentleman speaks with authority because he knows the reality. He will also know that pharmaceutical batches must be checked to ensure that the quality and ingredients are right. That work has to be done in a European Union country in order for those products to be sold within the European Union, so this pharmaceutical company it is going to replicate exactly the same brilliant labs...

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Anna Soubry: I absolutely am. I made it very clear to my constituents when I stood for re-election in Broxtowe last June that I would continue to make the case for the single market and the customs union—oh, and by the way, for the positive benefits of immigration—and they were good enough to give me and our party their vote. As my right hon. Friend the Member for Loughborough said, each and every one...

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Anna Soubry: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Anna Soubry: Will my right hon. and learned Friend give way?

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Anna Soubry: Would it not also be the case that, as a country that champions free trade, we have seen the reduction of barriers with those other non-EU members, which may explain the growth? Does the right hon. Lady agree that it seems rather perverse that, at a time when we want to increase free trade, we are going to put up a whole load of barriers to stop access, in the best existing free trade area in...

Business of the House (26 Apr 2018)

Anna Soubry: My constituent Pamela Corbett is extremely poorly—how can I put it; time is of the essence—but power of attorney would not be appropriate in her case, which is not unusual. However, TSB has frozen her bank account, which has caused her and her daughters considerable distress. May we have a debate on how we can ensure that banks see the human being—the person—in such cases instead of...

Home Office Removal Targets (26 Apr 2018)

Anna Soubry: It is not fair, Mr Speaker. You set me up to fail and I always do. This is a serious issue. Does my right hon. Friend agree that part of Labour’s dreadful legacy was an obsession with targets? As an excellent new broom, will she assure us that she will search in every nook and cranny, and ensure that immigrants, migrants, are seen as people and not numbers?

Windrush (23 Apr 2018)

Anna Soubry: I commend the Home Secretary for her statement and her actions, as well as for her openness and honesty, and the apology that she and the Prime Minister have given. But we are still not being honest in this place. The Labour party did not vote against the Immigration Act 2014. [Interruption.] I know that the right hon. Member for Hackney North and Stoke Newington (Ms Abbott) did because she...
