Opposition Day: Government’s EU Exit Analysis (31 Jan 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. I am looking at the forecast of 500,000 more unemployed, and it relates to the beginning of 2018. The Treasury produced a little chart showing just how bad it would be, how joblessness would rise and how if people did not vote the right way they would lose their jobs and be visited by recession. Under the second category—“severe shock”—it was...

Opposition Day: Government’s EU Exit Analysis (31 Jan 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: Again, my hon. Friend makes a forceful point, and they are not just in the Treasury. The shadow Secretary of State—a knight of the realm, I should add—was kind enough to come down from St Pancras to see us in Dover recently. Grandly, he came down to tell the people of Dover that we ought to retain the benefits of the single market and the customs union. Everyone understood what he meant....

Opposition Day: Government’s EU Exit Analysis (31 Jan 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: I will not give way as I have given way twice already. The Treasury analysis was wrong in the first place. The Treasury did not predict containerisation or innovations such as the internet. We are about to have an automation revolution, with cars driving themselves, and a revolution in solar power, which will reduce our unit energy bills, and this country is well placed to become much more...

Opposition Day: Government’s EU Exit Analysis (31 Jan 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: I thank the right hon. and learned Gentleman for giving way. Is it his party’s policy to remain in the European Union’s customs union—yes or no?

Leaving the Eu: Economic Analysis (30 Jan 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: Is the Minister aware that in the past 40 years the European Union’s share of global GDP has fallen from 30% to just 15% and that 90% of future world economic growth is going to come from outside Europe? Does he agree that the future is not regional relative decline; the future is global?

Leaving the Eu: Implementation (29 Jan 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: Will the Government make it a red line that no implementation period will begin until a trade agreement with the EU is concluded?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Devolution of Powers (24 Jan 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: Will the Secretary of State confirm that, when the United Kingdom leaves the European Union, the flag of this nation will remain the Union flag and that no devolved Assembly should try to restrict it from being flown, whether at the white cliffs of Dover, Land’s End or John o’Groats?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: HMP Liverpool (23 Jan 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: I congratulate my hon. Friend on his new post—the whole House knows of his passion for prisons and prisons policy. Will he hold to account those in the senior echelons of the Prison Service for the disgraceful and appalling conditions in the prison?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Saving for rights etc. under section 2(1) of the ECA (16 Jan 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: Does my right hon. Friend detect, as I do, a tendency in SNP Members, which reaches its pinnacle in the hon. and learned Member for Edinburgh South West (Joanna Cherry), not to accept the results of any referendum held in this country? They reject the alternative vote referendum result, they will not accept and respect the Scottish referendum result, and now they are trying to countermand...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Saving for rights etc. under section 2(1) of the ECA (16 Jan 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: The hon. Gentleman has been incredibly generous in taking interventions throughout his speech. When this matter was debated at the previous stage, we had a long discussion on the charter of fundamental rights and it was clear that it divides into three sections. One section is already covered by the Human Rights Act, another section will be meaningless when we leave Europe—it includes...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Saving for rights etc. under section 2(1) of the ECA (16 Jan 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: In Dover and Ramsgate in east Kent, we have to put up with the evil and wicked trade of live animal exports, and we have to do that because of European law. We now see an opportunity to stop that evil trade, for the sake of our communities and for animal welfare, by leaving the European Union and taking back control. Does the hon. Gentleman not welcome that?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Saving for rights etc. under section 2(1) of the ECA (16 Jan 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: I read what the report said about the issue of the Charter of Fundamental Rights, and I must say that I thought it very inconclusive. I do not think that the Committee took a strong position on either side of the debate.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Personal Incomes (16 Jan 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: Will the Chancellor confirm that the lowest-paid have in fact seen a 7% real- terms wage increase since 2015, and that income inequality is now at its lowest level for 30 years?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Charlie Elphicke: The House will know that, from my point of view, we cannot get out of the European Union fast enough. Time and again, I have said that we need to be ready on day one and be prepared for every eventuality, deal or no deal—or, should I say, regional deal or global deal—but we must remember why we are taking back control. It is because of the vision we have for our country and because of our...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Charlie Elphicke: I have listened carefully to my hon. Friend’s argument on clause 9. It seems to me that the initial intention was to do the withdrawal agreement by regulation, since when the principle of a withdrawal agreement implementation Bill has been conceded. Under the circumstances, is not the proper thing to withdraw clause 9, to prevent Opposition Members, particularly from the SNP, from using it...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Charlie Elphicke: Looking at this matter independently, as one does these days, it strikes me that my right hon. Friend’s argument raises a serious question about why clause 9 needs to be in the Bill at all. We are going to have a withdrawal agreement and implementation Bill, and if the Government cannot say what it is that might be urgent, why should we have this clause at all?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: WTO Tariffs (13 Dec 2017)

Charlie Elphicke: Is it not also important to look at the opportunities for Wales from imports with lower tariffs on food and clothes, which could particularly benefit the least well-off?

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Charlie Elphicke: The hon. Gentleman’s talk of bills reminds me that the Labour party has made a massive number of pledges and wants to go on a borrowing binge, but 22 times it has failed to explain how it will fund those pledges. It has gone from “You don’t need a number” to “You can’t put a figure on it at the moment” to “It’s not difficult.” May I ask the question for the 23rd time and...
