Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Leaving the EU: Diplomatic Co-operation (22 Jan 2019)

Emily Thornberry: May I take the Foreign Secretary back to our last debate on Brexit? He gave me an answer that was not exactly convincing, so I thought I would give him another chance. [Interruption.] I am nothing but kindness—it is my new year’s resolution. Four days after the referendum, he said that “we need to negotiate a deal and put it to the British people, either in a referendum or through the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Leaving the EU: Diplomatic Co-operation (22 Jan 2019)

Emily Thornberry: Well, that is not a very convincing answer, is it? It is the same sort of unconvincing answer that we got last time. We always know when Government Ministers are getting a bit desperate when they decide that they need to ask the Opposition what their policy is instead. The Foreign Secretary said in the very first paragraph of the article that I am quoting that “we did not vote on the terms...

Points of Order: [7th Allotted Day] (11 Jan 2019)

Emily Thornberry: This has been an excellent debate to listen to, even though I have the most astonishing feeling of déjà vu about it. Perhaps it is the flu I have been suffering all week, or the massive doses of Lemsip or Berocca I took this morning, but I do feel as though we have been through all this before about five weeks ago and absolutely nothing seems to have changed. Nevertheless, I am glad to be...

Points of Order: [7th Allotted Day] (11 Jan 2019)

Emily Thornberry: The trouble is that that does not seem to be what the Foreign Secretary said on the radio this morning. I am just holding him to account. He cannot go round telling all sorts of different people different things and not expect us to be listening. We are listening. We are the Opposition and we will hold you to account and you need to be consistent because you are in government and you are...

Points of Order: [7th Allotted Day] (11 Jan 2019)

Emily Thornberry: When we leave the European Union, free movement will end. It is our policy that there should be fair rules and managed migration. We believe that immigration should look after our economy and should look after our communities. That is the answer; it is a full answer, and it has been consistent. If the right hon. Gentleman would like to listen to what the Labour party has said with the...

Points of Order: [7th Allotted Day] (11 Jan 2019)

Emily Thornberry: Yes, I have.

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe (7 Jan 2019)

Emily Thornberry: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for granting this urgent question. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Hampstead and Kilburn (Tulip Siddiq) on securing it, and I thank her on behalf of the whole House for her tireless campaigning to bring Nazanin home. I can only echo what my hon. Friend has said regarding the latest terrible turn of events: the denial of medical treatment to Nazanin and...

Yemen (19 Dec 2018)

Emily Thornberry: I thank the Foreign Secretary, not just for advance sight of his statement but for the attention he has devoted to the Yemen cause since he came to office. Many of us have spent countless hours in this House over the past three years debating how to end this dreadful conflict and the appalling suffering of the Yemeni people. We all appreciate the time, effort and focus that the Foreign...

Institute for Statecraft: Integrity Initiative (12 Dec 2018)

Emily Thornberry: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs to make a statement on his Department’s funding of the Institute for Statecraft’s integrity initiative.

Institute for Statecraft: Integrity Initiative (12 Dec 2018)

Emily Thornberry: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for granting this urgent question. I thank the Minister of State for his opening remarks. Let me make it clear at the outset that I have no interest today in debating the integrity initiative’s purpose of countering the very real threat of interference in western democracies and the spread of disinformation by the Russian state. If a debate needs to happen on how that...

Institute for Statecraft: Integrity Initiative (12 Dec 2018)

Emily Thornberry: What?

Institute for Statecraft: Integrity Initiative (12 Dec 2018)

Emily Thornberry: In a united way.

Institute for Statecraft: Integrity Initiative (12 Dec 2018)

Emily Thornberry: I’m not a gentleman. I have never been a gentleman.

Exiting the European Union (10 Dec 2018)

Emily Thornberry: When’s the vote?

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Emily Thornberry: This has been an excellent debate covering a range of vital and urgent issues. I am not going to repeat the many compelling points made by the shadow Home Secretary, my right hon. Friend the Member for Hackney North and Stoke Newington (Ms Abbott) in her speech. I cannot do adequate justice to all the other 48 contributions that have been made, some of which I missed. I am told, however,...

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Emily Thornberry: No, I have been asked not to take interventions at this stage of the evening.

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Emily Thornberry: We have had an opportunity over the last eight hours for everyone to have—[Interruption.] Mr Duncan, please calm down. I have been asked not to take interventions at this stage and I am not going to—

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Emily Thornberry: When the right hon. Gentleman has had a chance to calm down, perhaps I can continue. What this debate and all the many contributions have laid bare is that on the first duty of every Government—the duty to protect the safety and security of their citizens—the Prime Minister’s deal fails. I hope that when the Foreign Secretary speaks in a moment, he will address those points that I have...

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Emily Thornberry: That is the kind of Front Bench we see before us, and in the light of their complete failure of leadership and their total failure to deliver a new set of fair rules on immigration and to protect our country’s security, it is absolutely no wonder that this House is only a week away from rejecting their dismal Brexit deal and already holds this dismal Government in total and utter contempt.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Leaving the EU: Diplomatic Co-operation (4 Dec 2018)

Emily Thornberry: Only a month ago, the Foreign Secretary was one of eight Cabinet Ministers who said that they could not decide whether to back any Brexit deal unless they had seen the full, unedited legal advice given to the Prime Minister, saying that they could not repeat the failures of the Iraq war and rely only on an edited summary. The Foreign Secretary was right to take that entirely sensible and...
