Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote (21 May 2018)

Emily Thornberry: Thank you for granting this urgent question, Mr Speaker, and I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Northfield (Richard Burden) on securing it. I join him in welcoming the independent UN investigation into violence in Gaza. While we have already heard debate about the wording of the resolution agreed by the Human Rights Council, I have to say, as I did last week, that that...

Gaza Border Violence (15 May 2018)

Emily Thornberry: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs to make a statement on the violence at the Gaza border and its impact on the middle east peace process.

Gaza Border Violence (15 May 2018)

Emily Thornberry: 1 am grateful to you, Mr Speaker, for granting this urgent question. Yesterday’s horrific massacre at the Gaza border left at least 58 dead and almost 3,000 injured. Our first thoughts today are with those Palestinians who are mourning their loved ones or waking up with life-changing injuries. What makes yesterday’s events all the worse is that they came not as the result of some...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (15 May 2018)

Emily Thornberry: May I begin by thanking the Foreign Secretary for leading our cross-party efforts over the last two weeks to destroy the Prime Minister’s “customs partnership” proposal? I trust that he finished off the job earlier this morning. Unfortunately, however, that leaves us with his own crazy Mad Max—I mean max fac—proposal. May I ask him a very simple yes or no...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (15 May 2018)

Emily Thornberry: We are quite willing to exchange places with those on the other side of the House. All we would ask of them is that they call a general election. I do not think that that constituted even an attempt to answer the question that I asked. Like the Prime Minister, the Foreign Secretary seems to be unable and unwilling to state the blindingly obvious. So much for plain-speaking, bluff...

Iran Nuclear Deal (9 May 2018)

Emily Thornberry: I thank the Foreign Secretary for advance sight of his statement. I am sure that there will come a time to debate whether the Government’s approach to Donald Trump since his election in 2016 has been the right one, but today is not the time, because instead I believe that the whole House, and indeed the whole world, should stand united in condemning Donald Trump for the reckless,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Russia (27 Mar 2018)

Emily Thornberry: At the end of an excellent debate on Russia yesterday, I am afraid that the Foreign Secretary failed to answer a single one of the dozens of questions he was asked over the course of four hours, so may I repeat just two of them? First, will the Government now initiate a case against the Russian state at the European Court of Human Rights for its clear extraterritorial violation of human...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Russia (27 Mar 2018)

Emily Thornberry: I do not really understand that answer, but I hope that the Foreign Secretary will give it some consideration. After all, a third of all cases currently before the Court relate to Russia, and its rulings have been used by leading opposition figures, such as Alexei Navalny, to send a powerful message about the Russian state’s abuses. Let me ask a second question that the Foreign...

EU Referendum: Electoral Law: National Security and Russia (26 Mar 2018)

Emily Thornberry: Thank you very much, Mr Speaker. May I also thank the Government for holding this general debate in their time? As the Leader of the Opposition made clear earlier, we agree with all the key points made in the Prime Minister’s opening speech, and we agree unequivocally with all the measures the Government have taken in response to the Russian attack. It has been clear throughout this...

EU Referendum: Electoral Law: National Security and Russia (26 Mar 2018)

Emily Thornberry: The hon. Gentleman is right about how racism and hatred develop, which is why it is always important to be completely clear in one’s condemnations. Any time a mistake is made, an apology and a withdrawal must be made, and that, as I am sure that the hon. Gentleman will understand if he looks into this properly, is exactly what the leader of my party has done. I was talking about the...

Salisbury Incident: Further Update (14 Mar 2018)

Emily Thornberry: That is not true.

Salisbury Incident: Further Update (14 Mar 2018)

Emily Thornberry: When you read Hansard you will see. [Interruption.]

Uk Relations: Saudi Arabia (7 Mar 2018)

Emily Thornberry: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for granting this urgent question. I congratulate the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) on securing it, even if it was ahead of my own application. Let me make it clear at the outset that the Opposition want to have a good diplomatic and economic relationship with Saudi Arabia. But, as in any good relationship, there must be honesty. Most importantly,...

Uk Relations: Saudi Arabia (7 Mar 2018)

Emily Thornberry: indicated dissent.

Government Policy on Russia (6 Mar 2018)

Emily Thornberry: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for granting this urgent question. I thank the Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, the hon. Member for Tonbridge and Malling (Tom Tugendhat), for securing it. We are all extremely concerned about the incident in Salisbury yesterday, and I am sure we all hope for the recovery of Mr Skripal and his daughter. I am sure both sides of the House will join me in...

Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland: Border Arrangements (28 Feb 2018)

Emily Thornberry: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs—who seems to have run away—to make a statement on future border arrangements between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland following Britain’s exit from the European Union.

Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland: Border Arrangements (28 Feb 2018)

Emily Thornberry: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for granting this urgent question, and while I am always pleased to hear from the Minister of State, I have to say that it is an absolute disgrace, and a huge discourtesy to the House, that the Foreign Secretary is not here himself to answer questions on the contents of his memo, especially given that we saw him in London a few hours ago jogging in the snow and stopping...

Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland: Border Arrangements (28 Feb 2018)

Emily Thornberry: I have one further sentence, and then I am done.

Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland: Border Arrangements (28 Feb 2018)

Emily Thornberry: The truth of this memo is that the Government are saying one thing in public while preparing for the reality in private, and it is about time the deception was ended.

Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland: Border Arrangements (28 Feb 2018)

Emily Thornberry: It was confusing as to who was going to be responding to this urgent question, and I apologise for having drafted one script only to find that a different Minister was in the Chamber to respond.
