12:04 am
are unhappy with the way in which this has been handled. this is not the fault of -- or any mp in this house. that fault lies with the prime minister who was the architect of the withdrawal deal. so can she finally concede to the house she is liable, responsible, culpable for the chaos for the brexit debacle and when she will be resigning? >> prime minister. >> i would say to the honorable gentleman the brexit deal delivers on the result of reference. he has a different view to me. i know he doesn't want to deliver on the result of the referenda. he wants to try t and keep the united kingdom in the european union. 70.4 million people voted to get out of your opinion and that's what we're going to do. >> thank you, mr. speaker.
12:05 am
northwest less at your voted overwhelmingly to leave the european union and for the past two years the prime minister's told my constituents on over 100 occasions that will be leaving 29 march, 2019 with march, 2019 with or without a withdrawal agreement. but at the last minute she begs for an extension, delaying our departure. does my right honorable friend realize for the good people of my constituency they will forgive her for this? mr. speaker, they are good people but you're not stupid people and they will never trust the prime minister again. >> can i say to him that i hope the message he will take back to his constituents is it is a very simple one, which is we can indeed guarantee delivery on brexit. we can guarantee to living on brexit if this wiki and others in the south support the deal. >> jeremy corbyn. [shouting] >> thank you, mr. speaker.
12:06 am
this chaotic and incompetent government has driven our country into chaos. you know the scale of the crisis, mr. speaker, when -- are united in writing to the prime minister saying that plan b must be found to protect workers, the economy, and the irish border. my question on monday went unanswered. so will the prime minister now say what is our plan b? >> prime minister. >> can i say to the right honorable gentleman, as he knows we are continuing to work to ensure that we can deliver brexit to the british people and guarantee that we deliver brexit to the british people. we have a deal which canceled our eu membership fee.
12:07 am
other options don't do that. other options would lead to delay, to uncertainty and never deliver brexit. >> mr. speaker, the only problem with the prime minister's and just better deal has been twice defeated in this house, by in one case the largest -- in one case, mr. speaker, the largest ever majority by which the government has lost a vote in our recorded parliamentary history. reports today suggest that a former conservative prime minister is telling conservative mps that pursuing a customs union with the eu is the best way of getting brexit over the line. does she agree with him, and will should be supporting any motions for a customs union this afternoon? >> the right honorable gentleman, what we have negotiated, the government still negotiate with the european union delivers the benefit of the customs union while enabling us to have an independent free
12:08 am
trade policy come to negotiate free-trade agreement and our interest and would not relent brussels to negotiate turkey used to stand up for policy, now he wants customs union, not going to throw away the independent trade policy and meet brussels negotiating for us. we want to negotiate our trade and our interest and interest of people across this country. >> she knows perfectly well that our policy is for a customs union in order to protect jobs come in order to protect society, and she will also know that cvi have called for a customs union as part of a deal. in fact, the letter wrote to all mps yesterday saying give the delivers a customs union at some limit in the uk and the eu rules is a preferred outcome for the business community. it's a bit strange what a conservative prime minister says she doesn't want what the business community wants. these are deep strange times,
12:09 am
mr. speaker. in the prime minister say why she will not include a customs union in the options that will be discussed today? >> i say to the right honorable gentleman that doesn't just read the question he thought of previously but listens to answer that i gave to the previous question. [shouting] >> and i will repeat again because right honorable gentleman goes on a platform be able to do trade deals, devon infantry policy and deliver brexit. his policy customs union breaks the first promise. he never explained why once to abandon independent trade policy in the polls on second referendum breaks his second promise. what happened to straight talk on his politics? >> mr. speaker, the prime minister doesn't seem to realize that she doesn't have deal that's been supported by this house. and that our proposal for a customs union d duke of his alignment on workers right come consistent and a prime of the
12:10 am
not begin with the race to the bottom which is what she and many on her front bench actually want. earlier this week, mr. speaker, the business minister resign from the government saying the governments approach to brexit was playing roulette with the lives and livelihoods of the vast majority of the people of this country. why should -- kerr carry on risg jobs and industry in another attempt to yet again run down the clock and try to blackmail the mps behind her in supporting a deal that's already been twice rejected? >> i would say to the right honorable gentleman we have been negotiating in order to protect jobs. what he says about a race to the bottom is wrong and he well knows we have been working across this house. it is absolutely clear in the political declaration that we agree to not falling back in workers' rights but also a government that is in hands workers' rights. -- enhanced --
12:11 am
[shouting] >> the labour party -- the labour party can never stand it when they are told that conservatives are still up for workers because -- [shouting] that's what the conservative party does. we have enhanced workers' rights. rights. we stand up for workers with our tax cuts, and with higher employment. [shouting] >> jeremy corbyn. >> in a straight question to the prime minister she was unable to guarantee what's called dynamic alignment with european standards, and she knows full well, she knows full well that the labour proposals are, to use the eu's stand as a base like him for which would improve them, including giving workers full rights at work from day one of their employment and ending zero hours contracts and many other things. in his resignation letter, mr. speaker, the business minister
12:12 am
also said to the prime minister that he hoped she would not act in the national interest and enable parliament this week to find a consensus negotiating position. if today or on monday consensus alternative plan emerges across the house, will the prime minister except that the decision of the house and accept it as the basis for the uk's negotiating position with the eu henceforward? >> the objective that we all have is being able to guarantee -- the objective that we should all have is being able to deliver brexit and guarantee delivery brexit to the british people. and the right honorable gentleman stands there and asked me and raises this issue of workers' rights which is very clear about workers' rights environmental standards. he shakes his had -- his head. we've also been clear he ensues
12:13 am
question and i'm hearing the shadow trade secretary a shouting for a secretary position about her wishes about listening to parliament. what we're going to do on workers' rights in saying there's actually no, we won't simply accept automatically with the european union does. we will listen to parliament and give parliament essay in the. i thought he wanted parliament of a say in these things. >> jeremy corbyn. >> sounds like a recipe for aggression away from the standards, damaging workers' rights. mr. speaker, after the two largest defeatist votes in parliament turkey, she didn't answer my question about whether or not an agreement reached in this house would become a negotiating position of the government. i think the house of reps more important the whole country deserves to know the answer to that question. mr. speaker, this country is on
12:14 am
hold while the government is incomplete paralysis. vital issues facing our country from the devastation of public services to homelessness, to knife crime have been neglected. the prime minister seemed to deliver brexit because she can't build a consensus. is unable to compromise and unable to reunite the country. instead she is stoking further divisions, she's unable to resolve the central issues facing britain today and she is frankly unable to govern. the prime minister faces, mr. speaker, a very clear choice. the one endorsed by the country many of her own party, either listen or change course, or go. which is it to be? >> can't i just say, the right honorable gentleman raises the question of the indicative vote tonight. the answer come he might want to talk to the shadow brexit secretary who made clear that actually the labour party won't commit to supporting the results
12:15 am
of any of the indicative vote tonight. anthony talked about, then he talked about, any talk about what's happening in this country. let's just look at what is going to be happening in this country next week. nearly 1,000,000,000 pounds extra for the police, 1.4 billion pounds more available for local -- [shouting] 1.1 billion pounds extra for our schools. another -- [shouting] another ricin living race. another tax cut. that's under the conservatives. what would labour give us? he wants to scrap trident and pull out of nato. he would give us -- [shouting] drop living standards. the biggest threat to our standing in the world, to our defense, to our economy is sitting on the labour front bench. [shouting]

12:18 am
she is about to do? >> can i say to the right honorable gentleman my sense of responsibility and duty that is meant icecap working to ensure that -- [shouting] >> that's a quick answer, mr. speaker. let me help the prime minister. she can still change course. it is not too late. on saturday i joined opposition leaders and a million people to demand a second eu referendum. mr. speaker, 6 million people have signed a petition online demanding that the prime minister rethink your strategy. and today this house will give her a way out, chance to prevent disaster. will the prime minister finally respect the will of parliament, or will she continue -- scotland and the rest of united kingdom to be held hostage by the

12:30 am
[shouting] >> thank you, mr. speaker. can i first of all say that i would like to be treated particularly to anyone stationed in her constituency. she is absolute right about those brave men and women across our armed forces who put their lives on the line us, and she's also right that what is happening with the s.o.b.s both this year and next year -- mps -- brave and loyal services in scotland. this leaves thousands out of pocket and it is wrong so we will therefore again be providing financial mitigation payment to the negatively impacted for the tax 2019-20 by the scottish income tax hike and by the scottish income tax being--- a single payment will be made in 2020. the scottish government may

12:32 am
into the northern powerhouse come significant investment into infrastructure in the north and significant investment in the deals that we have negotiated across the north to ensure the benefits of the economic prosperity under this government are felt across every part of our country. >> a large number of my constituents voted remain in 2016. many voted -- all have a few. what i think they and their mp overwhelmingly want now is a clear desire to leave the eu with a deal. we exit the eu in the safeway, protects our economy and their jobs and just lets us move on. in the long-term we want a deep and special relationship with the european union what embracing opportunities of the 168 countries who are not part of it. just so i am clear and just between us, if she likes, before

12:34 am
newcastle voted 50.7%-49.3 to remain. edified our city and i was determined we should not have to vote again. but this is a complete shambles. parliaments gridlock. government is paralyzed. businesses stalled. jobs lost. households stockpiling. our global reputation trashed and the prime minister incapable of holding her cabinet together, never mind the country. will she not consider the possibility that she is making a terrible mistake? >> if the honorable lady wants to ensure that we are able to deliver on the overall vote of the referendum, to defend with the protects jobs can predict so you need a protects our security, and to do that anyway
12:35 am
that is orderly, that guarantees brexit for the british people, she said she didn't want a second referendum, if we're going to guarantee brexit, i suggested audibly she gets behind the deal and that we can guarantee that brexit. >> two days ago i asked the prime minister if it actually quite under the cabinet manual she sought the attorney general's advice relating to her authorization for the extension of the accident, and which he published this advice? she refused to answer. distinguished lawyers and former judges are convinced that a so-called international agreement is unlawful. i sent her a letter about this yesterday. the joint committee on -- has not yet considered the regulations at all. the motion to approve the regulation come before the house this evening. the committee and the joint committee will seek the advice of the attorney general before
12:36 am
the end of the day when the motion is received by the house. will she produce the advice of the attorney general? what is it? was to withdraw the motion of exceeding? >> can i say to the my honorable friend, it's a matter of international law the state that uk exit has been changed. the purpose this evening is reflect the change in domestic law. should not pass it would be uncertainty for businesses. the re-contradictory provision between eu rohs and the uk rules but it would be clear so the date of her exit has changed. the house of commons voted to seek an extension article 50, an agreement was reached with the european union council in relation to that. he's raised the question of commencement order with me previously. the commencement order is due to come on on the date we live european union. now, my friend i know once to
12:37 am
leave your opinion and we can of course leave european union if i do suggest to my friend because the back the deal that we can guarantee leaving. >> thank you, mr. speaker. this week in "the guardian" reported that 15 tory counselors who were suspended for islamophobia or racism had been quietly reinstated. the conservative party has so far failed to quell fears that they are in denial about islamophobia. since as the prime minister about this in june 2018, there has been no concrete action. will the prime minister instructor party chairman to respond to the three letters i've sent him on the subject? and when will the tory party adopt the definition of islamophobia? >> i say to the honorable gentleman that the conservative
12:38 am
party has a process which can deals with complaints of islamophobia and any other sort against counselors or other members of the party. it is absolutely clear that discrimination or abuse of any kind is wrong. we take action against come with our cases of discrimination or abuse turkey says we have not acted since 2018 we raised this issue with acted on cases that any allegations before the party, the party chairman takes this very seriously and will continue to do so. >> most of us want a good deal preferred the children are given at all. but i'm may i urge the prime minister to ignore that are forecast she would leave on debbie dingell terms? it is the same people who predicted doom and gloom in 2016 if we voted to leave -- the btl. record low unemployment, record high investment and record manufacturing output they were wrong then. they are wrong now and by doing
12:39 am
so we could be leaving as per the legal opposition of article 50, which is without the deal. >> can i say to my honorable friend he references leading off wto. what a want to go to do and what i think is right and what the government considers right for the united kingdom is for us to go to negotiate trade agreements with countries around the world, give a better operations those countries rather just wto basis also the bill to negotiate that could trade you with the european union. that's what we want to see, a good trait do with our newest trading neighbors and opportunities for good free-trade agreements around the rest of the world. >> thank you, mr. speaker. i would ask the prime minister very important question. with -- living with dementia and the cost across the kingdom to
12:40 am
be 30 billion pounds by the year 2021. what commitment can the prime minister do to increase dementia research and new apparatus for vehicle potentially lead to a cure or treatment? with the prime minister commit government annually to just 1% of the societal costs of dementia to research? >> can i say to the honorable gentleman his race and very important issue. he cited a number of his constituents living with dementia. the would be people across our constituencies and increasing numbers or living with dementia and that's what we're committed to delivering our dementia 2020 challenge in full. that is supporting research. he referenced research. in supporting research in dementia, uk research community is playing essence of the role in the global effort to try to find a cure or moderating treatment by 2025. we committed to double spending on research in dementia by 2020, that's a cool 69 pounds per
12:41 am
animal and we're on track to meet this. as he who reference ends question come much of its it investment is indeed for research to better understand the nature of dementia between the form development of future treatment and to find ways to prevent the onset of the condition, if we can prevent the condition of course that is the best route to take but meanwhile we look to see whether treatment we can provide to those with this condition. >> thirty years ago margaret thatcher told the u.n. general assembly that global, the threat from global warming needed an equivalent response from the whole world. what progress has been made on reducing greenhouse gas emissions that contribute towards a man-made climate change? >> i'm very grateful to the honorable gentleman for raising this important issue. what i would also say to the honorable gentleman is that he is reminded people actually was
12:42 am
a conservative prime minister was one of the first world leaders to raise this issue of climate change and put it on the international agenda. he's asked me about some of these changes that have taken place. we've reduced uk domestic greenhouse gas emissions by 23%, nearly 50% of uk -- low carbon sources in 2018 and uk co2 emissions have fallen for sixers interrupted that is just a few of the achievement that we have under record of the coven but, of course, we continue to work internationally to help deal with this issue, and that's what we've been, we believe it's important to remain part of the paris climate change agreement. >> mr. speaker, i'm sure the prime minister will join with me in welcoming the signing yesterday of the heads of terms of agreement on the belfast city regional deal, the first essay to deal in northern island which is estimated to bring about
12:43 am
20,0020,000 new jobs, 350 million pounds of investment by the government, and a lot of extra investment by local councils and the private sector. will she confirm that she will do everything in her power in absence of default government to ensure the civil service who signed on behalf of northern ireland the we know -- which is been welcomed right across the command in northern ireland? >> the right, gemma raises a very important point which is about the benefits that the city deals can bring in those benefits are considerable can bring together both governments and the private sector to provide in those city deals. i think the point he makes that in absence of the government we need to make sure there's no impediment to many had with that city deal as fast as possible and will commit to ensure that this indeed take place. the prime minister knows of a a huge improvement to the quality of clinical care brought about
12:44 am
by the -- program offered by the professor glaude brought juicier and dtc gordon brown as well. give newborns are constituents play on a concert from the local -- with the prime minister ensure that the general practice will give you get right first time is speeded up so the excellent practice available in places like -- can be made available to all of our constituents? >> can i say to my honorable friend that only his question but bring oppressor to sydney. when the professor came to did racist issue of sprinting this concept of getting it right first and spreading it beyond possible consoles and entity practices that my friend is right and we should make sure we do that. we want to make sure the best practice is adopted by gp practices across the whole country. that's to the benefit of all our constituents. >> thank you, mr. speaker. skin cancer is on the rise in
12:45 am
