Last quote by Anna Soubry

The date going into the Bill has really upset a lot of really top-quality backbench Conservative MPs. These are people, a lot of them ex-ministers, highly respected, and they are genuinely cross about this. There were some people there who have never rebelled and they are now talking, for the first time ever, of rebelling.feedback

Anna Soubry quotes

Sep 04 2017 - Brexit

I don't know of any Conservative member of Parliament that isn't going to vote for this Bill at second reading. I thought we had abandoned this sort of rather bullish, macho way of doing business over Brexit.feedback

Sep 04 2017

We lost our majority so everything has changed and one of the reasons I think we lost our majority was because of that rather silly, foolish, bullish attitude as I describe it.feedback

Sep 04 2017

We were never going to vote against the Government in relation to the second reading of this Bill but the idea that you shouldn't do your job as a member of parliament when it comes into the committee stage of putting down amendments, seeking to scrutinise legislation, probing amendments where you hope to get a concession or better understanding from Government, this is the bread and butter of the job that all members of parliament are returned to do.feedback

Sep 04 2017 - Brexit

I thought we had abandoned this sort of rather bullish, rather macho way of doing business over Brexit.feedback

Sep 04 2017 - Brexit

What you're basically saying is that, for some reason, when it comes to Brexit, you stop doing your fundamental job as a Member of Parliament, which is to scrutinise legislation and, if you need to, add your name to amendments. This is not revolutionary – all manner of people have been doing that quite properly for centuries, and indeed there are a number of people now in government who've got a rather fine history of defying their government in ways certainly the likes of me have never done.feedback

Sep 04 2017 - British elections 2017

I know that she understands the need to build a consensus and that everything has changed since the general election in June.feedback

Sep 02 2017 - Labour Party

We've got to look at those Henry VIII clauses and make sure that we're not subverting the will of the people through Parliament and handing over excessive powers to the executive.feedback

Sep 02 2017

Now it is time for parliament to play its part. The bill delivers the result of the referendum by ending the direct role of the EU in UK law, but it is also the single most important step we can take to prevent a cliff-edge, because it transfers laws and provides legal continuity.feedback

Sep 02 2017

People will be very alarmed. It will all backfire on them.feedback

Aug 27 2017 - Labour Party

Hard Brexit has gone, thank god. The debate has shifted to the arguments we have been making for some considerable time.feedback

Aug 25 2017

I believe the majority of MPs support overseas students being taken out of the figures.feedback

Aug 13 2017 - Brexit

Many remainers like me have been true to our promise to respect the result of last year's referendum.feedback

Aug 13 2017 - Brexit

People have asked me two questions, if the worst happened and we staggered recklessly towards a 'hard Brexit' that would destroy the lives and livelihoods of my constituents: could I ever see myself joining with like-minded people who want to save our country from such an appalling fate? And has that moment arrived yet? The answer to the first question is 'it is not impossible'; the answer to the second is 'no. But I would be betraying my principles if I did not make it clear that country must always come before party.feedback

Aug 13 2017 - Brexit

If the prime minister or her successor [in the event of May standing down] is not prepared to confront the ideologues, I gravely fear that the party could split – and that would change Britain's political landscape completely.feedback

Jul 30 2017 - Brexit

Hammond speaks with authority and common sense. It's clear that at last the economy and jobs are at the heart of a sensible and smooth Brexit. These Brexiteers promised a land of milk and honey – the reality is gruel and chlorinated chicken.feedback

Jul 23 2017 - Labour Party

I just wonder whether or not the de-unionisation of many places of work ... they played an important point in making sure there was fairness.feedback

Jun 11 2017

I don't think she does have a majority in the House of Commons for leaving the single market.feedback

Jun 09 2017

This is a very bad moment for the Conservative Party, and we need to take stock. And our leader needs to take stock as well.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Women

This is a very bad moment for the Conservative Party, and we need to take stock. And our leader needs to take stock as well. The country needs a period of stability and whatever the results are the Conservative Party will ensure we fulfil our duty in ensuring that stability so that we can all, as one country, go forward together.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Women

It was a tightly knit group, it was her group that ran this campaign and look where we are, for God's sake.feedback

Jun 08 2017

I think she's in a very difficult place. I'm afraid we ran a pretty dreadful campaign. Where do you want me to begin? It was a dreadful campaign.feedback

Apr 25 2017

This sort of blatant partisanship further divides our country when we must all come together. I'm extremely concerned this is actually about getting Blairites back into Parliament.feedback

Apr 09 2017 - Brexit

We have seen encouraging signs from the prime minister that she accepts and understands the reality facing British business – they will continue to need overseas workers for years to come. Migrant workers contribute to our economy and to British culture – we should be welcoming them in the traditional spirit of British tolerance. Leave means Leave clearly don't understand why British business relies on migrant workers.feedback

Mar 22 2017

Colleagues taken out of the library at gun point by counter terrorist armed police officers. Armed officers ordered myself and Security Minister (Ben Wallace) into lobby at gun point. Terrifying.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - World Trade Organization

There is nothing to be blase or relaxed about choosing for Britain to trade with our biggest economic partner under WTO rules. Every credible assessment done says this would be the worst trading arrangement possible for jobs, investment and growth.feedback

Mar 12 2017

I want a commitment from him that in the event of no deal it will come into parliament and parliament will determine what happens next. The question people have to ask is: why won't the government give that commitment? And my fear is that what this is really about is us deliberately – not the prime minister, but others – ensuring that we have no deal.feedback

Mar 10 2017

It's completely unacceptable that in the event of no deal, the people of this country, or their elected representatives, their MPs, would have no say on what happens next.feedback

Mar 07 2017

I will vote to keep in this amendment.feedback

Mar 07 2017

I just want people to be true to their consciences and true to our long-cherished belief in and defence of parliamentary sovereignty. We run the real risk that in the event of no deal we will have a hard Brexit, which my constituents did not vote for. It is appalling that parliament will deliberately be excluded from determining our country's future in the event of no deal.feedback

Mar 02 2017

The 'meaningful' vote is absolutely critical, it's the deal breaker. I just want us to behave in a grown up way. People have to remember 48 per cent did not vote to leave the European Union.feedback

Feb 01 2017

I greatly fear that generations that either did not vote or are yet to come will not thank us for our great folly.feedback

Nov 04 2016

Tolerance must win over hate and scaremongering. I'm not alone in standing up for the 48 percent who also have the right to be heard and listened to.feedback

Oct 02 2016 - French politics

Triggering Brexit as early as March really concerns me, troubles me hugely, because we won't have had the French elections, we won't have had the German elections, and I'm sorry, it is going to take a lot of time and effort to disentangle ourselves and get the right deal.feedback

Jun 03 2016

Any issues of misconduct will be taken extremely seriously.feedback
