David Davis's recent appearances (TheyWorkForYou)
Exiting the European Union | Commons debates - The control of the timing of the backstop by the European Union hands enormous amount of negotiating power to the other side in this negotiation. Without change, it jeopardises the control of our...
[3rd Allotted Day] | Business of the House | Commons debates - I am afraid not, on this occasion. I hope that the right hon. Gentleman will forgive me. I have just almost been given instructions. Let me now say a little about delays at Calais. The first...
[3rd Allotted Day] | Business of the House | Commons debates - What a pity, Mr Speaker. I enjoy interventions, as you well know. My hon. Friend the Member for Eddisbury (Antoinette Sandbach) has misquoted me from somewhere. It was I who negotiated the...
[3rd Allotted Day] | Business of the House | Commons debates - Let me reinforce the point that I made to the hon. Member for Bishop Auckland (Helen Goodman): I told the Prime Minister that last December, as everyone now knows. I do not take a utopian or a...
[3rd Allotted Day] | Business of the House | Commons debates - That is hardly surprising, given that we have the biggest aviation hub in Europe and one of the biggest in the world.
[3rd Allotted Day] | Business of the House | Commons debates - The hon. Lady clearly has not read my resignation letter, in which I made clear what I had said to the Prime Minister about that backstop arrangement.
[3rd Allotted Day] | Business of the House | Commons debates - Yes, that is also true, but the general point is that the overall timetable is not in our control; it is in the other side’s control. As we have seen throughout this entire negotiation, the...
[3rd Allotted Day] | Business of the House | Commons debates - That is what is laid out in the proposal, but the transition will then come to an end, and at the end of that, we will still have to make a decision on where we are going, backstop or no. I am...
[3rd Allotted Day] | Business of the House | Commons debates - People have to read more than one line of a speech. Perhaps the hon. Gentleman’s iPad is too small to carry more than one sentence. I also said that the critical part of the negotiation...
[3rd Allotted Day] | Business of the House | Commons debates - Before I attempt to pick up on the shadow Chancellor’s final views on where we are going, rather than on where we are, I draw the House’s attention to a wider issue, which I think...
[3rd Allotted Day] | Business of the House | Commons debates - The hon. Gentleman, quite rightly, makes the point that a number of expert economic opinions all say much the same thing, but of course that is exactly the same as was the case before the...
[3rd Allotted Day] | Business of the House | Commons debates - rose—
[3rd Allotted Day] | Business of the House | Commons debates - rose—
[3rd Allotted Day] | Business of the House | Commons debates - I, too, welcome the right hon. Gentleman’s approach, and the tone and tenor of his opening remarks. I hope that during his speech—perhaps not immediately—he will lay out his...
Leaving the Eu: Economic Analysis | Commons debates - The Treasury, the OBR and the Bank of England between them produce numerous forecasts every year. When was the last time that any of them got one right?
Leaving the EU | Commons debates - If the European Union really intends in good faith to rapidly negotiate a future trade agreement, why can we not make the second half of the £39 billion payment conditional on delivering it?
Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) | Commons debates - Thank you, Mr Speaker. That attempt at an intervention came one sentence from the end of my speech, to which I shall simply add that it seems to me that some points of order are as bogus as the...
Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) | Commons debates - No, I am not giving way; I am coming to the end of my speech. We have never, ever inherited such an economy from any Labour Government in history, and there is a good reason why that is the case.
Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) | Commons debates - I will tell the right hon. Gentleman why I will not give way: because he was part of the Government who invented the system that created this crisis in the first place. We need to do more on...
Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) | Commons debates - No, I will not give way on this issue.
