Canlyniadau 121–140 o 1302 ar gyfer speaker:Geoffrey Cox

Attorney General: EU (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act: Implementation ( 3 Hyd 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: I do not think it is for me to comment on ridiculous speculations and hypotheticals of that kind, but it is good to see the hon. Gentleman looking calmer this morning.

Attorney General: EU (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act: Implementation ( 3 Hyd 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: I have not seen the response to which the hon. Gentleman refers, but I can certainly confirm that the Government will comply with the law. I am not convinced that the Prime Minister said anything contrary to that; I would have to look at Hansard.

Attorney General: EU (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act: Implementation ( 3 Hyd 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: The hon. Gentleman has read it out, and he does not need any confirmation from me. He is a superbly competent lawyer—[Interruption.] So I am told by others on his side of the House. The reality is that the Government will comply with the law.

Attorney General: EU (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act: Implementation ( 3 Hyd 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: Because I am quite convinced and completely satisfied that this Government will obey the law.

Attorney General: Prorogation: Supreme Court Judgment ( 3 Hyd 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: I cannot comment on the content of Cabinet discussions but, as I told the House last week, the judgment sets out the definitive and final legal position on the advice given to Her Majesty on the Prorogation of Parliament. We are carefully and deliberatively considering the implications of that judgment. We need some time to do it, but a Queen’s Speech is necessary to bring forward a fresh...

Attorney General: Prorogation: Supreme Court Judgment ( 3 Hyd 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: I know that those matters are being actively considered. I am sure they will be considered in consultation and through the usual channels. As much time as conceivably can be made available will be made available to debate those very important matters. The Prime Minister is making a statement later this morning, and the Government are more than conscious—acutely conscious—of the need for...

Attorney General: Prorogation: Supreme Court Judgment ( 3 Hyd 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: I have been considering that question. I am still considering it. I have not reached a conclusion. When I have, I will make sure the hon. Lady is informed.

Attorney General: Prorogation: Supreme Court Judgment ( 3 Hyd 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: May I tell the hon. Gentleman that I do believe in the law and I have spent 37 years of my life adhering to those professional values? As for the advice I may or may not have given to any member of the Government, he will know I am bound by the convention. I cannot tell him whether I have. I understand the purport of his question, and I do not criticise him for it in the least, but I regret...

Attorney General: Prorogation: Supreme Court Judgment ( 3 Hyd 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: I completely agree with both parts of my hon. Friend’s question. Plainly, the Law Officers’ convention is not a question of personal ownership by any particular Attorney General. It is a long-standing convention that protects all Governments on often extremely sensitive, complex and difficult subjects, sometimes affecting the most important interests of this country. Of course I agree...

Attorney General: Prorogation: Supreme Court Judgment ( 3 Hyd 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: My hon. Friend, as ever, from a background of practice in the law, feels, as I do, that those kinds of hearings—certainly US-style hearings—would be a regrettable step for us in our constitutional arrangements. The Government have no current plans to do so, but it is fair to say that the implications of the judgment and the continuing development of our constitutional arrangements will no...

Attorney General: Judicial Appointments Process ( 3 Hyd 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: The priorities of my office are set out in the published business plan for this year, but on the UK’s withdrawal—I beg your pardon, Mr Speaker, I am answering the wrong question. I also beg the hon. Gentleman’s pardon—[Interruption.] Nobody noticed probably, the answers being the same. I can only plead that I am getting your cold, Mr Speaker, and was up far too late this morning....

Attorney General: Judicial Appointments Process ( 3 Hyd 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: The Government have no plans to introduce any such appointment system. The only thing I would say is that this House must have the right to determine the constitutional arrangements of this country, and of course parts of that will have to reflect on the role of the Supreme Court and its constitutional functions. But I agree with him that a US-style appointment system would be a wholly...

Attorney General: Judicial Appointments Process ( 3 Hyd 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: I could not have put it better than that. I agree with every word that my right hon. Friend said. As I have had cause to say in the House only recently, we have one of the finest judiciaries in the world. Throughout the world, they are beacons of impartiality and independence, and the House should do all it can to promote, protect, and preserve those values. I agree that a US-style process of...

Attorney General: No-deal Brexit: Priorities ( 3 Hyd 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: The priorities of my office are set out in the published business plan for this year. The UK’s withdrawal from the European Union exercises the interest of my office in supporting the successful delivery of the Government’s objectives. We give legal and constitutional advice within the Government and throughout the Departments. Of course I am engaged in supporting preparations for future...

Attorney General: No-deal Brexit: Priorities ( 3 Hyd 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: Certainly not. I stand by every one of them. When this Parliament assumes its responsibilities to pass a withdrawal agreement, then I might reconsider them, but certainly not at the moment. We may soon have a chance to assume those responsibilities if we can get a deal from the European Union. I hope then to see the hon. Lady vote for it.

Attorney General: No-deal Brexit: Priorities ( 3 Hyd 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: The hon. Gentleman is quite right; there are some countries that will not extradite their own citizens. In those cases it is a case of bilateral discussion with them. There is the existing Extradition Act 2003, but if they will not extradite citizens, there is of course the option of trying them in that country. That is generally the option that those countries offer in connection with their...

Attorney General: No-deal Brexit: Priorities ( 3 Hyd 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: Exactly, and that presents considerable difficulty, as the hon. Gentleman points out. However, we will be having bilateral discussions with those countries to seek to agree specific arrangements with them.

Legal Advice: Prorogation (25 Med 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: As the hon. and learned Lady knows, the Supreme Court gave judgment on this issue yesterday, and that judgment sets out the definitive and final legal position on the advice given to Her Majesty on the Prorogation of Parliament. The Government’s legal view during the case was set out and argued fully before the Supreme Court. The hearing was streamed live and the Government’s written case...

Legal Advice: Prorogation (25 Med 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: I am extremely grateful to the hon. and learned Lady for her kindness and solicitousness for my welfare. I am particularly attracted by the tempting prospect that she dangles before me, but she will know that I am obliged by the convention to say that I am not permitted to disclose the advice that I may or may not have given to the Government. But I repeat: the matter is under consideration.
