Uk Plans for Leaving the EU (9 Oct 2017)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Will my right hon. Friend confirm unequivocally that after 29 March 2019 the European Court of Justice’s writ will no longer run in any way in this country and that any new laws agreed under the acquis communautaire after that date will not have effect here unless agreed specifically by Parliament?

Business of the House (Today): Nomination of Members to Committees (12 Sep 2017)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: This is not some great constitutional crisis; it is within the thread of our constitution. The great Duke of Wellington’s guiding constitutional principle was that the King’s Government must be carried on. In older age, he changed it to the Queen’s Government. That is the situation today. Since 1881, when, Mr Speaker, your illustrious predecessor, Speaker Brand, brought...

Business of the House (Today): Nomination of Members to Committees (12 Sep 2017)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I would be delighted to be the Prime Minister of North East Somerset when it makes a unilateral declaration of independence. The hon. Gentleman does not realise what parliamentary sovereignty means. What it means is that this House can make its internal rules of operation, and that they cannot be challenged by any court in this country or abroad. This is parliamentary sovereignty in action.

Business of the House (Today): Nomination of Members to Committees (12 Sep 2017)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Quite a number of peers, including Liberal Democrat peers, have questioned whether the Salisbury-Addison convention applies. Lib Dem peers have said that they do not feel bound by it as they had nothing to do with it when it was agreed in the first place.

Business of the House (Today): Nomination of Members to Committees (12 Sep 2017)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman, whose speeches are normally compelling, but on this occasion there is one flaw. If this motion is passed, it is the democratic will of the House of Commons that standing orders be amended, and therefore that has democratic backing. For him to say it is not democratic is simply wrong.

Business of the House (Today): Nomination of Members to Committees (12 Sep 2017)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I wonder whether the hon. Lady could answer one question. If the situation were reversed, does she think she would be bringing forward a similar motion to the one that has been brought forward by my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House?

Business of the House (Today): Nomination of Members to Committees (12 Sep 2017)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Is it not a fundamental position in our constitution that the Queen’s government must be carried on, and is it not also true that if the motion is passed, its being passed will prove that the majority is there for the Government to get their business through?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: rose—

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: rose—

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Is there not a fundamental contradiction in what the right hon. and learned Gentleman has been saying? A moment ago he was worrying that power would be lost from this House; now he is saying that power should in fact be with the European Union. Is not the fundamental point of this Bill that it is better that laws should be made by our Government and our Parliament than by an unelected EU...

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Sep 2017)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Has my right hon. Friend raised the thought with Monsieur Barnier that if a member state that is a net beneficiary were leaving, would he expect to pay it a large dowry? When he realises that the answer to that question is obvious, does it follow that the European Commission’s demand for money with menaces is ridiculous?

Business of the House (20 Jul 2017)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: The staff of Parliament have quite rightly been thanked by many Members today, but I have heard a rumour that the police officers who serve us so well and are part of the parliamentary family may be moved after a five-year stint. Many right hon. and hon. Members value enormously the continuity of service that we get from the police constables, so will my right hon. Friend use her influence...

Fox-Sky Merger (20 Jul 2017)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: May I commend my right hon. Friend for not becoming a party to the socialist vendetta against the Murdoch family? When considering media plurality, will she bear in mind that there were four channels when Sky launched, but that there are now hundreds, and that the real opponent of media plurality is the bloated—taxpayer-funded—BBC, which likes to gives millions of pounds to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Rooftop Solar (18 Jul 2017)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Will not the roll-out of solar panels be greatly helped by Brexit, when the very high tariffs imposed on cheaper Chinese photovoltaic cells are removed and we will no longer be protecting the inefficient German industry?

Bill Presented: Scheduling of Parliamentary Business (17 Jul 2017)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: The charter of fundamental rights only applies to citizens of the United Kingdom insofar as it applies to EU law. It therefore cannot have applicability once we have left the European Union because we will no longer be subject to EU law.

Bill Presented: Scheduling of Parliamentary Business (17 Jul 2017)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: “Erskine May” makes it clear that someone’s maiden speech is their maiden speech only in their first Parliament, so they are allowed to be interrupted in subsequent Parliaments.
