European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

Anna Soubry: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way. This point is rather important: will he confirm whether the Labour party no longer supports the principle of free movement—yes or no?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval for agreements with the Union (7 Feb 2017)

Anna Soubry: Let me say from the outset that it is really important that we all step back from the way we have done politics arguably for too long and to the detriment of British politics. I mean the idea that there are “concessions” to be made, that the people have bottled things, that briefings from No. 10 say that no concessions have been made, that concessions have been given and that they...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval for agreements with the Union (7 Feb 2017)

Anna Soubry: I agree with much of what the hon. Gentleman says, but I am also reminded of what was said by my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Beaconsfield. As he rightly asked, who knows where we may be in two years’ time? No one seems to have thought about the issue in those terms. God forbid, but we may not have our Prime Minister then: we may have another Prime Minister, for whatever...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval for agreements with the Union (7 Feb 2017)

Anna Soubry: I absolutely agree, and that is exactly the point that many Members across this House are now making.

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval for agreements with the Union (7 Feb 2017)

Anna Soubry: I completely agree with the hon. Lady, and this is part of the bringing together, the forming and building of a consensus not just in this place—I do not know why we should be so frightened of that here—but across the country at large. Families, friends and communities remain divided and we must now come together. People have put their trust, as I have, in my Prime Minister and my...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval for agreements with the Union (7 Feb 2017)

Anna Soubry: I am grateful for that intervention as it gives me the opportunity to make it clear—I am sure the hon. Member for Nottingham East could explain this if it needs any further clarity—that I take the term “relationship” to be describing exactly that. If we do not have a deal, we then accordingly have a new deal— a new relationship, in other words—with the EU....

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval for agreements with the Union (7 Feb 2017)

Anna Soubry: I want to abandon this language of failure and success, and I say, with great respect to the hon. Gentleman, that I am not going to be playing that game. I want us to come together and to get the best deal, and in the even that we do not get a deal, I want to make sure that this place absolutely gets that say and that vote. On that basis, I will continue to listen to the debate, but I have to...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval for agreements with the Union (7 Feb 2017)

Anna Soubry: My right hon. Friend is a man of courage with a long, fine history of supporting the sovereignty of this place. He says that the Government will give us a vote in the event of a deal, but why does he not agree with those of us, on both sides of the House, who want the same vote, so that we ensure the sovereignty of this place, in the event that the Government cannot strike a deal, despite...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval for agreements with the Union (7 Feb 2017)

Anna Soubry: Would the hon. and learned Gentleman—I nearly said “Friend”; I will have to be careful—agree that it is really important that, as a nation and a House, we now come together, putting aside all the party political differences, to do the right thing by our country? But most importantly perhaps, on the very point he makes, does he share my concern that, in the event of no...

Housing White Paper (7 Feb 2017)

Anna Soubry: Conservative-run Broxtowe Borough Council is doing everything it can to defend our green belt, but that is very difficult because the previous Labour-Lib Dem administration approved a plan for thousands of houses on our green belt. But the biggest problem the council has is that many small builders are having real problems getting access to finance, particularly because of the risk weighting....

Informal European Council: Joint Ministerial Committee (EU Negotiations) (6 Feb 2017)

Anna Soubry: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Informal European Council: Joint Ministerial Committee (EU Negotiations) (6 Feb 2017)

Anna Soubry: The hon. Lady says that Members of the European Parliament would sit in the national convention. Does that include Mr Nigel Farage?

Informal European Council: Parliamentary oversight of negotiations (6 Feb 2017)

Anna Soubry: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that it is at best unfortunate that his Front Bench team has not used its Opposition Supply days to have exactly that debate and, indeed, a vote on the single market, the customs union and the free movement of people?

Informal European Council: Parliamentary oversight of negotiations (6 Feb 2017)

Anna Soubry: I have made it clear that I very much hope the Government will see good sense, as is the case in much of the wording of new clause 110, and that some sort of compromise and sense can be achieved. I make it clear that in the absence of that I will perhaps find myself with no alternative but to go against my Government, which is the last thing I want to do.

Informal European Council: Parliamentary oversight of negotiations (6 Feb 2017)

Anna Soubry: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Informal European Council: Parliamentary oversight of negotiations (6 Feb 2017)

Anna Soubry: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Informal European Council: Parliamentary oversight of negotiations (6 Feb 2017)

Anna Soubry: Does my hon. Friend not agree that the Prime Minister as given her word that this will be a priority and she clearly hears the compassion that my hon. Friend reflects for her constituent, as we all do for all our constituents? We must, as I certainly do, accept the word of the Prime Minister that this will be her priority and that she will sort it.

Informal European Council: Parliamentary oversight of negotiations (6 Feb 2017)

Anna Soubry: Is my hon. Friend honestly saying that the good people of Colchester sat in a variety of places where they might go to enjoy themselves mulling over the finer points of the single market?

Informal European Council: Parliamentary oversight of negotiations (6 Feb 2017)

Anna Soubry: Given the quality of your Front Bench.

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Anna Soubry: Will my right hon. Friend please assure us that he will be true to his claim, as a leader of the leave campaign, that £350 million a week will now be going into our NHS? Or does he agree with others who say that that figure was always false and that that was a lie?
