12:01 am
podcast. >> earlier today, european leaders announced an agreement on the exit from the european union. the deal must be approved by parliament. on wednesday, theresa may took questions on the negotiations as well as other domestic issues like crime rates and the national health service. this is 45 minutes.
12:02 am
seatirst woman to take her in the house of commons was a conservative. women are coming. speaker, coming, mr. women are coming from all over the u.k. extendingry party invitations. this will be an inspirational day. we hope it will encourage women to stand for political office locally and nationally. speaker, we are reminded of the contributions made to this .ouse by female mp's mr. speaker, i had meetings with colleagues. i have further meetings later today. the prime minister will know what drives me in politics has
12:03 am
been a love of country. and a passionate belief in our united kingdom. i have to tell the prime minister i agree with the people who are unhappy by the proposed deal which they believe does not they votedhe brexit for. will she now at this late stage think again and instead lead our country in a new direction, completely cutting away the tentacles of the eu over our cherished island nation once and for all? >> i think my honorable friend. i think people across the country who voted to leave voted to bring an end to free movement . they voted to bring an end to
12:04 am
the court of justice in the u.k. . we deliver that. for the money on our priorities. we will be able to do that. priorities like the national health service. but the european union remains a close trading partner to the united kingdom. as we leave, we want to ensure we have a good trading relationship with the european union, and we will be able to have an independent trade policy that enables us to make decisions to trade around the rest of the world. my honorable friend is a passionate champion of the united kingdom, but he is also a passionate champion of the links that the united kingdom has around many parts of the world, including the commonwealth, which can be enhanced when we leave the european union. >> thank you, mr. speaker, and i
12:05 am
thank you for welcoming our guest to parliament today. on the 100th anniversary of the qualification of women's act, i join the prime minister in welcoming all women to parliament today. we need a parliament that truly represents the whole of this country. now that a number of government ministers have confirmed this morning that leaving the e.u. with no deal is not an option, does the prime minister agree there are no circumstances under which britain would leave with no deal? >> no. i have for say to the right honorable gentleman i have consistently made clear on this point. but the point that has been made by a number of my colleagues in relation to the vote that will come before this house on a meaningful vote on a deal from the european union is very simple. if you look at the alternative to having that deal with the european union, it will either be more uncertainty, more
12:06 am
division, or it could risk no brexit at all. >> mr. speaker, the prime minister didn't answer the question. is there the final deal or not? the working pension secretary says this is a deal. it has been baked. well, it is half bake the. but other members of the cab note want to amend the toof the cabinet want amend the withdrawal agreement. the leader of the house said last week there is, and i quote, still the potential to improve on some of the measures. that's what i'm hoping to help with. can the prime minister clarify whether last week's withdrawal agreement is the final text, or is there another text that is on its way to us? >> i have to say to the right honorable gentleman that he won't get any different answer to this than he has had from me previously. the package has two parts to it.
12:07 am
there is the leaving part, the withdrawal agreement and the future relationship, which is what is continuing to be negotiated with the european union. they go together as a package. yes, the withdrawal has been agreed in principle. the whole package will be what is brought before this house, will be what is considered at the european union council on sunday. and we continue to negotiate on that future relationship to get the good deal that we believe is right for the united kingdom, a good deal that products our jobs, union and security. >> the prime minister is apparently heading off to brussels today, but the new brexit is another non-traveling brexit secretary, who is apparently not going with her. i wonder if the post is now an entirely ceremonial one? [laughter] mr. speaker, the prime
12:08 am
minister's agreement doesn't specify how much we would have to pay to extend the transition period. can she confirm the choice facing the country would be the back stop or paying whatever the e.u. asks us to pay to prolong that transition period? >> the right honorable gentleman is wrong on that. the choice we would be facing if it were the case -- let's just remind ourselves what we are talking about here. we are talking about the guarantee to the people of northern ireland that there would be no hard border between northern ireland and ireland. that is best ensured by getting the future relationship in place by the end of december, 2020. in the event that was not the case and an interim agreement in place, the choice the right honorable gentlemen set out is not the choice before us. we would have the back stop in the protocol.
12:09 am
this will be the extension of the implement ace period, but we have also negotiated that alternative arrangements be in place. the key is they guarantee no hard border between northern ireland and ireland. >> the truth is, the prime minister's idea of taking control of our money is tond hand the e.u. a blank check, and after 2020, no rebate for the u.k. mr. speaker, the e.u.'s trade deal with canada took seven years to agree. the deal with singapore, eight years, the business area had week said the transition will have to be extended until the end of 2022. outside the e.u., and with no leverage, does the prime minister think she is fooling anyone by suggesting there will be a free trade agreement finalized by december of 2020? >> the future relationship we are negotiating will society out the structure and scope of that
12:10 am
deal that will be ensuring we can negotiate in legal text once we leave the european union. but the right honorable gentleman i think people will have seen has shown the problem he has with this deal. he hasn't even read it. he doesn't know what is in it. he says that the problem with the deal, and he would do it differently. he wants to renegotiate the withdrawal agreement, but as i say, he hasn't read it. he wants to oppose any deal no matter how good it is for the u.k., but he will accept any european union deal no matter how bad it is for the u.k. and then he wants to use the implementation period that he would vote against to renegotiate the treaty that delivers the implementation period. he said enough of a referendum isn't an issue. he doesn't know how he would vote, doesn't northwest what the
12:11 am
issue would be, doesn't know what the question would be. that is not leadership. that is peter politics. i am working in the national interests. >> mr. speaker, it is her government that has got us into this shambles, and she knows well, she knows full well that the new parliament -- speaker order. nobody in this chamber will be shouted down. we have often heard it said from the respected front benches, that that would be bad behavior. it is happening now. stop it because it won't work. >> mr. speaker, the prime minister knowing full well with a new parliament in place next summer and a new european union commission at the same time, the negotiation of the agreement will have less than a year to do what she claims she can be. in february the prime minister said that creating a customs and
12:12 am
regulatory border down the irish sea is something that, and i quote, no u.k. prime minister could ever agree to. can the prime minister explain why the back stop agreement would create exactly that border? >> now i have to say to the right honorable gentleman it would not create exactly that. from february until in the last few weeks, the european union said that the only answer was a northern ireland customs territory only answer in relationship to the guarantees of the people of northern ireland. we argued, and we resisted, and we made clear we would not accept the position of the european union, and a few weeks ago they agreed with our position. they conceded to the united kingdom so that there will not be a customs border down the irish sea. i think it has become even
12:13 am
clearer that the right honorable gentleman doesn't actually know what is in the agreement, what is in the outlying decorations. we talk about the second referendum. never mind a second referendum. he hasn't got a first clue. >> with the shambles this government has got into, it is a good idea that other people are not ruling out all options. mr. speaker, there is an entire protocol, an entire protocol in the withdrawal agreement setting out regulations that apply only to northern ireland. she clearly didn't discuss this draft agreement with the d.u.p. because their brexit spokesperson said, and i quote, we are clear. we will not be voted for this humiliation. mr. speaker, this deal is a failure. it fails the prime minister's red lines, fails labor six
12:14 am
tests, and fails to impress the new northern ireland minister, the new northern ireland minister, who just hours before he was appointed said the deal is dead. instead of giving confidence to millions of people who voted both leave and remain, this half-baked deal fails to give any hope that can bring the country together again. isn't it the case that parliament will rightly reject this deal, this bad deal? and if the government can't negotiate an alternative, then they should make way for those who can and will. >> the public gave an i instruction to leave the european union, and we should all be acting to deliver that. all he wants to do is play party
12:15 am
politics. speaker: order, order! you are a cerebral denizen of the house. shouting is way beneath your pay grade. calm yourself and develop a sense of sense of repose. the senator should not be shouted at. the prime minister should not be shouted out. >> he is promises a deal he can't negotiate. he is telling leave voters one thing and remaining voters another. whatever the right honorable gentleman will do, i will act in the national interests. >> prime minister, i am a great
12:16 am
supporter of yours, along with the british people i accept what a difficult and tough job you have. there is much in the agreement that i agree with, especially on food and farming, but it is not good enough as it stands. the northern ireland back stop threatens the integrity of the united kingdom and weakens our negotiating position. my farming instincts tell me i know you do not hand over 39 billion before we get the deal. please can i ask you, prime minister, to listen to these concerns and renegotiate the deal before we put it on the floor of this house? >> to my honorable friend, he has mentioned the issue of paying over money to the european union. as i have consistently said, as i indicated, nothing is agreed until everything is agreed, and we remain negotiating on that
12:17 am
future framework. in relation to the 39 billion pounds, which i would remind my honorable friend is significantly less than the 100 billion pounds the european union were first talking about needing to pay, these are about the legal obligations that united kingdom has. i hope that every member of this house will recognize that the united kingdom is a country that meets the legal obligations that we have. >> thank you, mr. speaker. can i welcome the act that gives women the right to be represented in parliament. it is the nationalists that first elected. we can only have success when women are properly represent inside this parliament. yesterday, the prime minister he -- met with the first minister. the first minister made it clear that there are alternatives to her brexit plan.
12:18 am
was the prime minister listening? >> i have to say to my honorable gentleman, of course i heard what the first minister said. the alternative is for the united kingdom to stay in single market. that is what we will not do. >> mr. speaker, this is exasperating. at least staying in the single market as the customs union has some support. when we look at the report from the u.n. this week -- speaker: order, order. the leader of the scottish national party will be heard. i don't think members will want to hear the question again and again and again. but let's be absolutely clear that -- order! if they-shot their heads off, they will have to hear it not once, not twice, but possibly three times. mr. ian blackburn.
12:19 am
>> thank you mr. speaker. and the week here, up to a quarter of the people of the united kingdom are living in poverty, something the d.w.p. recognizes. why doesn't the prime minister realize that she has a responsibility to protect jobs and communities in this country? for once, start to listen. go back to brussels, recognize that we all have an interest in this. let's all work together to make sure we protect the interests of people in scotland and elsewhere in the united kingdom. make sure that you go back and negotiate. let's keep us in single markets and the customs union. >> the right honorable gentleman says let's work together on this issue. but the things he has and that his party has is one which would frustrate the vote of the british people in relation to leaving the european union. he talks about protecting jobs.
12:20 am
that is exactly what the deal that we are proposing does. and he talks also about listening. well perhaps the s.n.p. should listen to the people of scotland, who gave a very clear view that scotland should remain in its most important economic market, the internal markets of the united kingdom. >> thank you, mr. speaker. 20-year-old tommy cowen, and 18-year-old georgia jones were sold ecstasy at the music festival and lost their lives afterwards. will they tackle the things that need to be done on the drug dealers that attack our young people? >> can i say to my honorable
12:21 am
friend, i am sure that all members will want to join me to offer the deepest condolences. am i right? drugs can devastate lives. it can ruin families. it can damage communities. what our comprehensive drug strategy does is set out a balanced approach of bringing together the police, the health community and global partners to tackle the elicit drug trade. drug enforcement is a fundamental part of that. we are taking a smarter approach to restricting the supply, adapting our approach to reflect changes in criminal activity, using technology, and taking coordinated partnership action to tackle drugs alongside other criminal activity. and of course the role of the national crime agency is a key element in dealing with the terrible aspects of drugs that can cause so much harm to people. but of course there is more that we need to do to prevent harm and to prevent tragic death such as those.
12:22 am
>> thank you, mr. speaker. over the past three weeks, i have surveyed 42 schools in my constituency. more than 3.4 million pounds will be taken from them, and 6% of these scoolings have caught -- cut staff. the prime minister's claim that austerity is over is as credible as her brexit claim. will the prime minister get a grip or step aside? >> the honorable gentleman will know we are putting extra money into school funding. he will know we have changed the national funding formula to make that fairer across the country. he would welcome the fact that in the northwest we now see over 895,000 children at good or outstanding schools. that is an increase of over
12:23 am
175,000 children since 2010. the honorable gentleman focuses on the money good into schools. he also needs to look at the outcomes from schools and the excellent work done by our teachers and the children now in good and outstanding schools who weren't under the last labor government. >> thank you, mr. speaker. will my right honorable friend join me in honoring debbie who is visiting us and watching from the public gallery. it is not just a question of getting more women into parliament, but encouraging women from all walks of life, especially from disadvantaged and low-income backgrounds, and does my friend support the initiatives from the foundation to enable more women to access public lives? >> i am happy to welcome his constituent. i hope his constituent will
12:24 am
consider standing for parliament. we talk about diversity in parliament. but my right honorable friend is right, we need to ensure we have people from a wide variety of backgrounds and with a wide variety of experience in this chamber. that is a way we get better decisions taken in this chamber. i am pleased that the conservative party has been taking action through work it has done in supporting people to get into politics, encouraging people with a wide range of backgrounds and experience to stand for parliament and represent in this chamber. >> the prime minister has just repeated that voting down her deal risks no brexit at all. does she recognize that far from being a risk, recent polls show that actually a vast majority of people would like no brexit at all in order to save jobs, protect the environment and ensure our standing in the world. will she acknowledge that the will of the people can change, the will of the people has
12:25 am
changed? and will she therefore think that the way forward is a people's vote, or does she think democracy ended on june 23, 2016? >> i would say to the honorable lady that claim is absolutely ridiculous. this parliament gave people the right to choose whether to remain in the european union or leave the european union. people supported that vote. we saw numbers of people voting that had not voted before. i believe that gave this parliament an instruction we should ensure we leave the european union as the people voted. >> thank you, mr. speaker. there are no people more proudly and passionately british than the people of gibraltar. it gives important safeguard to them in the effects and protocol.
12:26 am
will she make clear that under no circumstances that she permit that text to be reopened to put those safeguards at risk, and to have discussions on the future agreement. >> we are steadfast as he is in our support for gibraltar, its people and economy. we are also clear that it is covered by our exit negotiations, and we are involve them as we exit the european union. we are seeking a deal that works for the whole european family, and it must work for gibraltar too. that will form a wider package of agreements between the u.k., spain and gibraltar setting out the negotiations. we will not exclude them. we want a deal that works for the whole u.k. family and that includes them.
12:27 am
>> because the government snuck out changes to the police pension, the rip to m.p.'s, describing the impact as devastating. if the government doesn't change tack, it would cost the force 9.2 million. it would mean doing away with 130 police officers or all 250 pcso's. is the prime minister worried about this, or is the chief constable scaremongering and just crying wolf? >> the honorable gentleman says that the pension changes i think the phrase he used snuck out. that was not the case. this pension issue has been known of, has been known of for i think it is two years that this has been under consideration. so it is not the case that this has been snuck out. >> thank you, mr. speaker. in all my time as a mortgage broker, when i had a
12:28 am
remortgaging client, i never once recommended they stick with a standard variable rate. they had more freedom and could leave the deal without penalties. given my right honorable friend is receiving counsel to ditch the deal. putting aside the worst-case scenario of no deal, in the very best scenario, they are both standard, everything terms, far worse from the tariff taxes we currently enjoy, and which she has negotiated to maintain. >> can i say to my honorable friend, he is right that we want to negotiate a trading deal with european union that is on better terms than the w.t.o. there are many people across this house who want to see a united kingdom negotiating trade deals the rest of the world, but there are on better than w.t.o. terms. that is best for the united
12:29 am
kingdom's economy. if we are negotiating with better than w.t.o. terms west -- with the rest of the world, it makes sense with the european union. >> the prime minister said school funding is up, and it is. but pupil numbers are up. costs are up. the institute for fiscal studies says that since 2010 there has been 8% real term per pupil cut. how can the prime minister expect anybody to trust her on anything when she can't get her numbers right? right? can i, can i say to the honorable lady as i have said before, overall per-pupil funding is being even in real terms by this government. the court schools bus it of 42 -- budget of 42 million pounds
12:30 am
will be at the highest ever level. we are giving 2.4 million pounds to those who need it most. the core school budget is rising by nearly 2.6 million pounds across this year and the next. what we have also done alongside in extra money is to put in a fair and national funding formula which ensures we see a fair and even distribution across the country. mr. speaker, would my right honorable firm -- friend a firm to this house and to the president of the commission tonight that as we move to honor the result of the referendum, i. will remain our firmest intention to retain the possible -- closest possible relationships with our european friends and allies in the very best interest of both? pm may: can i say to my right honorable friend i am happy to give that commitment? it is important to recognize
12:31 am
that while we are leaving the european union we are not , leaving europe. we want to continue to have that is a good trading relationship and a close trading partnership with the european union, but also we want to have that security and defense partnership that we have had with the european union and other countries across europe as well. this is what makes sense. my right honorable friend said not just for the u.k. but for all of the member states as well. mr. speaker, since the slavery bill passed, the republic of ireland, northern ireland and france have joined norway, sweden and iceland in policy effects by law. that makes it an even more lucrative market for sex traffickers. because we are now effectively surrounded by states which tackle the demand that drives commercial sexual light -- sexual exploitation. in responding to the independt review of her legislation five
12:32 am
years on, will she now commit to look seriously at a sex by law? important raises an issue. having introduced the modern slavery act, i am pleased to say we have seen a 52% increase in cases prosecuted. there is more to do, but we should welcome the change that has already taken place for he asked about the sex bylaws. second to this, the home office has divided funds for research into the nature and prevalence of sex work into england and been led byhat has a committee on sexual prostitution. i am sure the honorable gentleman will appreciate we believe that it's vital before considering any changes. the research will be completed next spring. thank you, mr. speaker. can the prime minister assure the house today as she has been -- done on many other occasions
12:33 am
that the u.k. will be leaving the e.u. on the 29th of march 2019 come what may. pm may: yes, can i, can i first of all thank my right honorable friend for the work that she did as secretary of state for work and pensions, and indeed work she has done as a minister previously. the disability confidence scheme particularly has an impact which she championed and continues to champion and has a life impact. i can give her the assurance the united kingdom will leave the european union on the 29th of march 2019. mr. bercow: colleen fletcher. >> last friday i visited a school in my constituency to meet with the school's council. the children told me that falling police numbers and
12:34 am
rising crime levels have made them fearful of using and enjoying their local parks. can the prime minister told the school council, and they may be listening today, what strategy the government is deploying to ensure that all young people feel and are safe from crime on our streets and in our public spaces. pm may: the honorable lady raises an important point. we want the young people to be able to feel secure walking through the streets or if they are in a park and gathering with their friends. what we need to do, looking at the concern that has been expressed about crime, and i see the one about might crime -- night crime, we are tackling this in a number of different ways across the board. it is ensuring we have the right power for the police, the right system in the criminal justice system. but it's also about providing education for young people about the risks of carrying knives. it is also about providing
12:35 am
alternatives to those young people who are tempted to join gangs. a lot of the crime we see is related to great -- gang activity. this is something that has to be addressed across the board, but i recognize the importance of doing that so safe people -- there is safety. >> [indiscernible] and the many briefings. it's clear to me that the prime minister had her cabinet have tried to reconcile the demands of the continued access today with freedom to diverge tomorrow. isn't it true the backstop has dropped it, that if we were to exercise our freedom weather in agriculture, food, or data protection, we would harden, allow the e.u. to harden the border? can the prime minister reassure
12:36 am
me that this draft doesn't contain a trap if we dare to divert, we undermine our union? pm may: i will say to my friend, he willme that this draft does't contain a know there are a numbr of ways i set out earlier. if it is the case to have an arrangement to provide this guaranty in addition to the border with northern ireland, there are a number of ways in which that can be achieved. identified ins the protocol, the extension, and work as being done on those. what i also say to my honorable friend is that the backstop is intended to be a temporary arrangement and all of that in in time, if you just cast his mind to a practical thought about what could happen if we were in the situation where the backstop had to be in place for a matter of months for example. i think it would be right for this united kingdom to give that commitment, that we would not be looking to diverge during that time, that we would ensure that we kept that free access for all of the goods from northern
12:37 am
ireland coming into great britain as we have committed. in the withdrawal agreement, the text set out and we have committed previously. that will be of course the decision for us here. what is important is we have a means of ensuring the backstop remains a temporary. the best means of doing that is what we are in the moment negotiating the future relationship which would ensure the backstop does. if it is ever use it will remain temporary and it is preferably never used at all. >> thank you, mr. speaker. the united nations has recently joined with other radical organizations in condemning the government's failure to address the tragedy of poverty. -- which onemental to she must regret, her failure to fund this village or the decision taken to triple the time that those who need a safety net have to wait to get payments for which they are
12:38 am
fully entitled? pm may: the honorable lady knows we made changes to credit, people can access on hundred percent of their payments at the earliest possible stage. she raises the issue of poverty. let me give you a few figures. there are 1 million fewer people in poverty a record low. ,there are 300,000 fewer children in absolute poverty. a record low. thousand are 637 fewer children living in workless households, a record low. the impact of universal credit. [indiscernible] mr. bercow: crispin blunt. >> thank you, mr. speaker. a student was arrested when he was leaving the uae. having completed his research into the impact of the arab foreignn the uae's
12:39 am
policy. he has now been sentenced to life. a number of us will note the irony of a former mi six officer ,ho works in the outer office in the uae, has organized many excellent visits to the uae. but this is wholly inconsistent with the behavior of a nation with whom we have a neutral defense accord. will the prime minister divert her urgent attention, if he is not released, i don't think we should be committed to that defense. pm may: i say to my honorable friend, we are of course deeply disappointed and concerned. i realize how this is distressing for matthew hedges and his family. we are raising it with the appropriate authorities at the highest level. the secretary is seeking a visit with the minister during his visit to the uae on november 12. he raised the issue with the
12:40 am
crown prince and the minister. i can assure everyone that they will remain in close contact with the family and lawyer. we will do all we can with next steps and press this matter at the highest level with the emma roddy -- emeratis. >> [indiscernible] , sure sure she recognizes she recognizes there are instances [indiscernible] we are dealing with. on that basis, on behalf of my constituents, can i ask whether we are going to get the promised domestic violence bill on the statute book before the end of the session? pm may: can i can i first of all , send my deepest condolences to claire and the honorable lady's constituent, and i would like to patriot to the fantastic
12:41 am
work she does as a woman's aide. we are committed to transforming the response with that domestic violence. what we received in the spring had 300,000 responses. that shows the degree of concern people have about this issue of domestic violence and the recognition of the need to look carefully at the legislation on this. the home office will be publishing a response to the consultation together with the committee in this session. >> all of the evidence shows diversity delivers better decision-making. over the last 100 years in this place, 4,503 men had been elected and just 490 women. of thoseproud that two conservative women became prime ministers. can my right honorable friend share with me what they could be doing to help encourage more of the women who are with us here
12:42 am
ark and thet of the stance campaign actually do go forward and stand for elections and join up in these ventures? pm may: can i say to my right honorable friend i think her for --thank her for championing this cause. the greater diversity in this place actually means that we get to have better decisions. can i also say to my right honorable friend that i think we should send a very very clear , message from everybody across this house about the significance of the work that an individual member of parliament does and the change that they can make to their community. i think this is one of the best -- being a member of parliament is one of the best jobs in the world, and it gives an opportunity to make a real difference. it is an opportunity to be a real voice to those that would not otherwise be heard. it is a real opportunity to take decisions that will lead our country forward and provide a better future for people's children and grandchildren.
12:43 am
it is a great job, and i encourage all the women who are here and thinking of standing to stand for parliament, get elected, and make a difference. you, mr. speaker. in the december report between the united kingdom and european union, it was agreed northern ireland would have the final say on whether or not to diverge from the u.k. single market and was subjected to the single market european rules with new -- no say. why has the prime minister deleted all reference to that in the withdrawal agreement? did she push the delete button. pm may: the right honorable -- can i say to him of course he is absolutely right. the issue of what the process is would be in the united kingdom to look at this issue from a regulatory -- a regulation is something for the united kingdom to determine to determine if , those are parliamentary rules
12:44 am
decisions,amentary and indeed what was expressed in the december joint report. as he will also know, the lock that was in the report referred to a decision being taken by the northern ireland executive, which we do not have in place today. on monday this week i heard something i never want to hurt again, a young woman having to cute just quit her research because she had cystic fibrosis, and there was no cure. this is about the conversation [indiscernible] to patients who need it. it is expensive and lengthy, but when it comes to your health, for transparency on finances to break the impasse here, we have to do something. looking at the huge global
12:45 am
forward profits, i would ask the primus to which she personally work with the secretary of state health [indiscernible] desperate to relieve their symptoms from cystic fibrosis. pm may: can i say to the honorable lady, my honorable friend she has raised what i recognize is a concern, and i know about the length of time this issue is being worked on. the department of social care is working with nih and nhs. the single best biggest offer to the pharmaceutical company. they need to work with them to get this approved. i will ensure the concern she has -- that has been expressed in relation to this matter is fully made clear to the department of health and social care and the work they are doing with the pharma company to make sure the result is one which is a benefit to those patients who are looking desperately for the drug.
12:46 am
mr. bercow: sir vincent cable. the withdrawal agreement says in the arbitration panel on a dispute on any aspect, the chair who has the decisive vote .ill be chosen by lots i know they are close to the gathering industry, but isn't it reckless to leave this under the withdrawal agreement [indiscernible] pm may: can i say to the honorable gentleman we can put in place arbitration arrangements which mirror arbitration that exists in other international treaties as he will also be aware it does say in the withdrawal agreement that identifying individuals capable of sitting on that panel, the numbers given is five, those who will be suitable to be chairman of the panel.
12:47 am
mr. bercow: thank you. order.
