Business of the House (23 Mai 2024)

Bill Cash: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for your service, and for calling me to make my last contribution in this House, after over 40 years. I also thank the staff of the House and of my European Scrutiny Committee, which I have had the honour of chairing since 2010, and all Members of the House, of whatever stripe, for their massive contribution to our democracy in this great Parliament. My...

High Speed Rail (Crewe - Manchester) Bill (Instruction) (No. 3) (21 Mai 2024)

Bill Cash: Is the hon. Gentleman actually involved with a Bill that is currently in existence, or is he suggesting that something should be done in respect of a Bill that is not the same as the Bill that was introduced in the first place?

High Speed Rail (Crewe - Manchester) Bill (Instruction) (No. 3) (21 Mai 2024)

Bill Cash: Thank you very much, Madam Deputy Speaker; I think I can do it a lot quicker than that. I agree with the remarks made by my hon. Friends from Staffordshire and, in particular, my hon. Friend the Member for Stoke-on-Trent South (Jack Brereton), who set out the practical side. I also agree with the scrapping by the Government of the Birmingham to Crewe section, but that does have consequences,...

High Speed Rail (Crewe - Manchester) Bill (Instruction) (No. 3) (21 Mai 2024)

Bill Cash: At the moment, travelling from Stoke-on-Trent or Stafford down to London Euston, as Conservative Members do, takes just over an hour. I would have thought that most people regard that as pretty fast.

High Speed Rail (Crewe - Manchester) Bill (Instruction) (No. 3) (21 Mai 2024)

Bill Cash: The instruction states: “The Committee shall, before concluding its proceedings, amend the Bill by—” and then sets out certain arrangements relating to certain aspects of the railway. It then states: “making such amendments to the Bill as it thinks fit in consequence of the amendments made by virtue of” the previous sub-paragraphs. The words “as it thinks fit” are an absolute...

High Speed Rail (Crewe - Manchester) Bill (Instruction) (No. 3) (21 Mai 2024)

Bill Cash: May I refer my hon. Friend to paragraph 3 of the motion? It states: “The Committee shall treat the principle of the Bill, as determined by the House on…Second Reading, as comprising the matters mentioned in paragraph (4); and those matters shall accordingly not be at issue during proceedings of the Committee.” What the motion is actually saying, surely, is that the principle of the Bill...

High Speed Rail (Crewe - Manchester) Bill (Instruction) (No. 3) (21 Mai 2024)

Bill Cash: As is well known, I have been opposed to the HS2 project since its inception, which goes back about 10 years or so. The Minister is giving us a bit of a eulogy about what is being done, and I am very glad that HS2 has been substantially changed and will not go beyond Birmingham. The question I put to the Minister is this: is an instruction the right way to go? Doing so in effect bypasses the...

High Speed Rail (Crewe - Manchester) Bill (Instruction) (No. 3) (21 Mai 2024)

Bill Cash: The question the Minister referred to is one of additional provisions. The real question—this is a technical question and not good for an intervention—and the bottom line is that additional provisions can be petitioned against. The manner in which the motion is constructed will effectively greatly inhibit, and/or completely prevent, additional provisions from being pursued by petitioners,...

War Graves Week (14 Mai 2024)

Bill Cash: I note the welcome presence of the Secretary of State at such a debate. As the only MP whose father was killed in the war, I owe great thanks to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and its volunteers for all the work they do in looking after my father’s grave at St Manvieu in Normandy, where he was killed in action against a Panzer division on 13 July 1944 and won the Military Cross. I...

International Health Regulations (14 Mai 2024)

Bill Cash: May I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Devizes (Danny Kruger) on securing this urgent question? I also congratulate those on the Government Benches—I note that there is no one on the Opposition Benches, apart from the shadow Minister—for addressing the question of whether any meaningful accord is possible. Supranationality has to be out, as I have said on countless occasions,...

Illegal Migration Act: Northern Ireland (14 Mai 2024)

Bill Cash: Will my hon. Friend indicate the extent to which the Illegal Migration Act 2023, the Windsor framework and the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Act 2020, as it relates to the sovereignty of the whole United Kingdom, including Northern Ireland, could have been worded sufficiently clearly and unambiguously to remove the grounds for this judgment, in line with the disapplication principles...

Smartphones and Social Media: Children — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (14 Mai 2024)

Bill Cash: May I congratulate my hon. Friend, and everybody who works with her, on the amazing work that she has done? It is a remarkable achievement, and I want to thank everybody who is associated with it. I am also grateful for what was done on the Bill that became the Online Safety Act 2023, which actually provides for imprisonment for tech bosses who wilfully make mistakes and deals with the...

BBC Mid-term Charter Review ( 9 Mai 2024)

Bill Cash: May I commend the Minister not only on her speech just now, but on having continually engaged with me on the subject over the past few years? She has been dedicated to her task, and I do not come at this debate with rose-tinted spectacles; I have been critical of the BBC, and I will continue to be so on the terms I expressed. I am glad to note that she has said that the Government believe, as...

BBC Mid-term Charter Review ( 9 Mai 2024)

Bill Cash: I think the hon. Gentleman has slightly misinterpreted what I said, and is on the verge of being misleading. I happen to think Ron Liddle was an exceptionally good presenter, as was Roger Mosey and John Humphrys, but their experience demonstrated a degree of awareness that all was not necessarily well in the organisation or the manner in which their programmes were put together. That is all I...

BBC Mid-term Charter Review ( 9 Mai 2024)

Bill Cash: As ever, my hon. Friend, who has enormous experience of all this, will add a lot to this debate. He mentioned what was done some years ago compared with now. Has he been watching BBC Four’s repeat of the entire “Civilisation” series by Kenneth Clark? Does he not think that it is one of the most remarkable examples of what the BBC can do fantastically well, and that people should be...

BBC Mid-term Charter Review ( 9 Mai 2024)

Bill Cash: I hope that my right hon. Friend will appreciate that my intention is to point to how statistical data is analysed, which may sound extremely boring but lies at the heart of whether we can properly evaluate the analysis in the public domain. I agree that there are moments when the BBC does very good things, but on some occasions it does very bad things, and there are reasons for that which...

BBC Mid-term Charter Review ( 9 Mai 2024)

Bill Cash: I am sure that the hon. Gentleman will bear in mind the extraordinary examples of the Bashir interview, the Jimmy Savile scandal and the Cliff Richard scandal—those things that seem to envelop the BBC periodically in a way that completely destroys its credibility. Alistair McAlpine is another example. Does he agree that it is astonishing that an organisation that has such a reputation in...
