Hello and welcome to Wednesday in Parliament.

:00:17.:00:19.

The Commons spends the day debating a call for parliament to be given

:00:20.:00:22.

a greater role in the UK's departure from the European Union.

:00:23.:00:28.

Westminster's major parties are asked what they're doing

:00:29.:00:30.

And calls for tougher prison sentences for stalkers.

:00:31.:00:36.

Despite it being such a violating and intrusive crime, despitd it

:00:37.:00:39.

having the capacity to do stch significant physical

:00:40.:00:42.

and mental harm, it's still being treated as a minor offence.

:00:43.:00:46.

But first, how far should Parliament have a sax

:00:47.:00:48.

on the UK's negotiations about leaving the EU?

:00:49.:00:53.

That was the question of the day at Westminster,

:00:54.:00:55.

where Labour had put forward a motion calling for a debate

:00:56.:00:57.

on the Government's plans and a chance to fully scruthnise

:00:58.:01:00.

them before triggering Article 0, the legal process allowing

:01:01.:01:05.

The Government accepted that in principle but added an alendment

:01:06.:01:11.

saying any such scrutiny shouldn't undermine its negotiating stance.

:01:12.:01:16.

Well, just before MPs got their teeth into the

:01:17.:01:18.

rights and wrongs of all of that, there was the small

:01:19.:01:21.

matter of Prime Minister's Questions to get through,

:01:22.:01:24.

where Jeremy Corbyn painted a gloomy picture of what had happened

:01:25.:01:27.

The reality is that since the Brexit vote, the trade deficit is widening,

:01:28.:01:36.

growth forecasts have been downgraded,

:01:37.:01:37.

value of the pound down 16%, an alliance of the Chamber

:01:38.:01:41.

of Commerce, Confederation of British industry, British Retail

:01:42.:01:43.

Consortium and Trades Union Congress have all made representation

:01:44.:01:48.

to the Prime Minister, demanding clarity.

:01:49.:01:50.

Is the Prime Minister reallx willing to risk a shambolic Tory Brdxit

:01:51.:01:54.

just to appease the people behind her?

:01:55.:02:00.

What the Conservative Party committed to in its manifesto

:02:01.:02:03.

was to give the British people a referendum on whether to stay

:02:04.:02:06.

We gave the British people that vote,

:02:07.:02:10.

We will be leaving the European Union and in doing

:02:11.:02:14.

that, we will negotiate the right deal for the UK which means the

:02:15.:02:17.

right deal in terms of oper`ting within and trading

:02:18.:02:21.

That's what matters to companies here in the UK and

:02:22.:02:26.

that's what we're going to be ambitious about delivering.

:02:27.:02:29.

We on these benches do respdct the decision of the British people

:02:30.:02:32.

But this is a Government th`t drew up no plans for Brexit, that now

:02:33.:02:39.

has no strategy for negotiating Brexit and offers no claritx,

:02:40.:02:43.

no transparency and no chance of scrutiny of the process

:02:44.:02:48.

The jobs and incomes of millions of our people are at stake.

:02:49.:02:54.

Business is worrying and the Government has no answers.

:02:55.:02:58.

The Prime Minister says she won't give a running colmentary,

:02:59.:03:01.

but isn't it time the Government stopped running away

:03:02.:03:05.

from the looming threat to jobs and businesses in this

:03:06.:03:07.

country and the living standards of millions of people?

:03:08.:03:11.

Unlike the Right Honourable gentleman, I'm optimistic

:03:12.:03:14.

about the prospects of this country once we leave the European Tnion.

:03:15.:03:18.

I'm optimistic about the tr`de deals that other countries now actively

:03:19.:03:21.

are coming to us to say that they want to do

:03:22.:03:24.

with the United Kingdom, and I'm optimistic about how we will

:03:25.:03:28.

be able to ensure that our dconomy grows outside of the Europe`n Union.

:03:29.:03:31.

But I have to say to the Right Honourable

:03:32.:03:34.

gentleman on this issue, Labour didn't want

:03:35.:03:35.

We gave them, the Conservathves gave them a referendum.

:03:36.:03:39.

We are listening to the British people and delivering on

:03:40.:03:43.

that result and now the Shadow Foreign Secretary is shouting

:03:44.:03:47.

The Shadow Foreign Secretarx wants a second vote.

:03:48.:03:55.

I have to say to her, I would have thought that L`bour MPs

:03:56.:03:58.

You can ask the same question again,

:03:59.:04:03.

you still get the answer yot don't want.

:04:04.:04:06.

The Prime Minister appears to have made a choice and that

:04:07.:04:14.

choice is to side with the protectionists and nationalhsts

:04:15.:04:18.

who have taken over her party as surely...

:04:19.:04:21.

As surely as Momentum have taken over the Labour Party.

:04:22.:04:27.

She has chosen a hard Brexit that was never on anybody's

:04:28.:04:35.

ballot paper and she has chosen to turn her back on British

:04:36.:04:39.

As a result, petrol prices `nd food retailers warn of huge pricd rises

:04:40.:04:49.

at the pumps and on the supdrmarket shelves in the coming days, so

:04:50.:04:54.

when will she put the interdsts of hard-working British people ahead

:04:55.:04:58.

of an extremist protectionism that absolutely nobody voted for?

:04:59.:05:06.

The Right Honourable gentlelan asks about who we are siding with.

:05:07.:05:08.

I'll tell him who this Government is siding with.

:05:09.:05:11.

We are siding with the Brithsh people who voted...

:05:12.:05:15.

Who voted to leave the European Union

:05:16.:05:18.

and it's high time the right honourable gentlelan

:05:19.:05:20.

listened to the vote of the British people

:05:21.:05:22.

and accepted that's exactly what we're going to do.

:05:23.:05:25.

Many people across the Housd will be reassured that the Government

:05:26.:05:30.

accepted the amendment to the opposition motion being debated

:05:31.:05:36.

later this afternoon, which guarantees that this House hs able

:05:37.:05:39.

properly to scrutinise the plan for leaving the European Unhon

:05:40.:05:44.

Can she tell us, will that scrutiny involve a vote?

:05:45.:05:52.

I have to say to the right honourable lady that the idda

:05:53.:05:55.

that Parliament somehow wasn't going to be able to discuss, debate,

:05:56.:05:59.

First of all, the Secretary of State

:06:00.:06:16.

for exiting the European Unhon has already made two statemdnts

:06:17.:06:18.

I believe four hours of questions followed those.

:06:19.:06:22.

A new select committee has been set up which crucially includes

:06:23.:06:26.

representatives from all parts of the United Kingdom which will be

:06:27.:06:30.

over a week ago, I announce that there will be a Great Repeal Bill

:06:31.:06:36.

in the next session of Parliament to repeal

:06:37.:06:38.

the European Communities Act, so Parliament is going to h`ve

:06:39.:06:40.

every opportunity to debate this issue.

:06:41.:06:43.

And so on to the day's Brexit debate.

:06:44.:06:47.

Labour set the tone in advance, publishing 170 questions

:06:48.:06:51.

it was putting to the Prime Minister about the negotiating terms -

:06:52.:06:55.

170 being the number of days until the 31st of March,

:06:56.:06:59.

by when Government aims to have triggered Article 50.

:07:00.:07:03.

Labour's Sir Keir Starmer, who's the Shadow Brexit Secretary,

:07:04.:07:06.

said the negotiations were hugely significant.

:07:07.:07:10.

Decisions that are going to be taken by the Government over the next few

:07:11.:07:13.

months and years in relation to exiting the EU are going to have a

:07:14.:07:18.

profound implication for thd future of this country, for its economy,

:07:19.:07:23.

for its people and for its place in the world.

:07:24.:07:27.

Does he believe the national interest will be best served

:07:28.:07:29.

by the Government coming to this place and explaining in precise

:07:30.:07:33.

before we've even walked into the room?

:07:34.:07:37.

Of course there is a degree of detail that can't be gond into.

:07:38.:07:40.

Of course there is a degree of flexibility that has to be

:07:41.:07:43.

Of course the starting position may not be

:07:44.:07:46.

But the question here is whether the basic terms

:07:47.:07:51.

The honourable gentleman, because I am very much

:07:52.:07:55.

minded to support his motion, is calling for a vote on the tdrms

:07:56.:07:59.

not just an examination, but a vote on the terms before we send

:08:00.:08:03.

But I do take it in two stages, because both of them are important.

:08:04.:08:16.

Scrutiny, putting the plans before the House really matters.

:08:17.:08:27.

There is a separate argument about a vote and I say

:08:28.:08:30.

there should be a vote, but what we mustn't do is gdt

:08:31.:08:33.

to a situation where in orddr to resist the vote,

:08:34.:08:35.

the Secretary of State won't even put the plans before the Hotse.

:08:36.:08:38.

There has been a vote of the British people,

:08:39.:08:41.

a vote that was delegated to the British...

:08:42.:08:42.

A vote that was delegated to the British people by

:08:43.:08:47.

the terms of the referendum act and the question he's got to answer,

:08:48.:08:50.

supposing there was a vote hn this House, how would he vote?

:08:51.:08:53.

Would he vote against Article 50 invocation

:08:54.:08:56.

I'm not going to take long responding to that,

:08:57.:09:07.

because I've made the point, the mandate on the

:09:08.:09:10.

23rd of June was not a mandate as the terms.

:09:11.:09:13.

I can't put it any clearer than that.

:09:14.:09:15.

The Brexit Secretary argued there would be plenty of ch`nces

:09:16.:09:18.

for MPs to scrutinise the Government's plans.

:09:19.:09:21.

We have already got plans - the House, not the Government -

:09:22.:09:25.

has got plans to put in place the so-called Brexht select

:09:26.:09:28.

committee which will take effect next month and we will be appearing

:09:29.:09:31.

It would be rather surprising to appear in front of

:09:32.:09:35.

that select committee and not be talking about some of our plans

:09:36.:09:38.

I expect to attend the commhttee regularly just as I will also attend

:09:39.:09:41.

the Lords committee, its effective equivalent.

:09:42.:09:46.

So we don't shy from scrutiny, we welcome it.

:09:47.:09:48.

But the Government wouldn't reveal everything.

:09:49.:09:50.

If you went to buy a house and you only

:09:51.:09:53.

looked at one house, you told the person you werd in love

:09:54.:09:56.

with their house and you made a bid for it,

:09:57.:09:58.

I suspect the price would go up and...

:09:59.:10:00.

If you make pre-emptive indications that you are willing

:10:01.:10:11.

to make a concession on somdthing, you actually reduce the valte

:10:12.:10:14.

of that concession, so in m`ny, many ways, we cannot give ddtails

:10:15.:10:19.

about how we are going to run the negotiation.

:10:20.:10:23.

We still have got no offer of a vote and we need some clarity

:10:24.:10:26.

about the policy the Government's going to pursud

:10:27.:10:29.

because the Government is accountable to this House

:10:30.:10:33.

for the policy choosing negotiations.

:10:34.:10:36.

This is about the country and whether Brexit works

:10:37.:10:41.

When I used to stand behind that dispatch box,

:10:42.:10:45.

the honourable member for Stone and many of his other fervent

:10:46.:10:48.

Brexiteers, I could always rely on them to marry their loathing

:10:49.:10:52.

of the European Union to their passion for the traditions

:10:53.:10:55.

They hated Brussels as much as they loved the House of Commons.

:10:56.:11:02.

They still hate Brussels, but they now appear to

:11:03.:11:05.

have been completely tongue tied, completely mute, silent when they

:11:06.:11:10.

have an opportunity to speak up for the traditional

:11:11.:11:12.

What the Government does is introduces its policy.

:11:13.:11:18.

It introduces its legislation to get that policy

:11:19.:11:21.

through and it has been cle`r responsibility for the negotiation

:11:22.:11:24.

Against that, no Government can exist unless it has

:11:25.:11:31.

At any day, if the Leader of the Opposition

:11:32.:11:36.

chooses to put down a vote of no-confidence in Her Majdsty s

:11:37.:11:38.

Government, Mr Speaker, as I understand it, you will take

:11:39.:11:41.

And therefore, if there is any part of the negotiathon,

:11:42.:11:47.

if there is any part of the discussion that takes place

:11:48.:11:50.

that this House presents or opposes, then the Government may be removed

:11:51.:11:53.

the first since Jeremy Corbxn was overwhelmingly re-electdd

:11:54.:12:06.

as Labour leader and the first since the break

:12:07.:12:09.

Jeremy Corbyn turned to a controversial announcelent

:12:10.:12:14.

from the Home Secretary Ambdr Rudd, who's department had briefed

:12:15.:12:16.

proposals for firms to disclose what percentage of their

:12:17.:12:18.

It had argued it was a way to encourage companies to hhre more

:12:19.:12:24.

local people and "flush out" those abusing existing rules.

:12:25.:12:30.

Jeremy Corbyn attacked the hdea suggesting it was at odds

:12:31.:12:32.

with Theresa May's stated ambitions for the UK.

:12:33.:12:41.

At the Conservative Party conference, the Prime Minister said

:12:42.:12:43.

she wants Britain to be a country where it doesn't matter

:12:44.:12:46.

But the Home Secretary's fl`gship announcement was to name and shame

:12:47.:12:50.

companies that employ foreign workers.

:12:51.:12:54.

Could the Prime Minister explain why where someone was born

:12:55.:12:57.

clearly does matter to members of her Cabinet?

:12:58.:13:01.

First of all, can I say to the right Honourable gentlelan,

:13:02.:13:03.

congratulations on winning the Labour leadership electhon?

:13:04.:13:06.

Can I welcome him back to his place in this House

:13:07.:13:25.

Can I say to him that the policy that he has just

:13:26.:13:30.

described was never the polhcy that the Home Secretary announced.

:13:31.:13:33.

There was no naming and shaling no published list

:13:34.:13:35.

of foreign workers, no published data.

:13:36.:13:39.

what we are going to consult on is...

:13:40.:13:44.

..is whether we should bring ourselves in line

:13:45.:13:47.

with countries like the United States of America which collect

:13:48.:13:50.

data in order to be able to ensure that they're getting

:13:51.:13:52.

the right skills training for workers in economy.

:13:53.:14:00.

We heard her party is registering foreigners working in the UK. The

:14:01.:14:06.

crackdown and rhetoric against foreigners by this government has

:14:07.:14:11.

even led to you kept saying things have gone too far. Across the length

:14:12.:14:19.

and breadth of this land people are totally disgusted by the xenophobic

:14:20.:14:22.

language on display from her government. Will she now confirmed

:14:23.:14:29.

to this House that the intention of the Government is still to go ahead

:14:30.:14:33.

with the registration of foreign workers but apparently we should not

:14:34.:14:37.

worry because it will be kept secret by her government? Can I sax very

:14:38.:14:45.

gently to the gentleman that I answered two questions on that

:14:46.:14:48.

earlier and I suggest he should have listened to the answer I gave there.

:14:49.:14:54.

You're watching Wednesday in Parliament, with me,

:14:55.:14:56.

Four of the main parties at Westminster have been ch`llenged

:14:57.:15:00.

on what they are doing to increase the number of women in Parlhament.

:15:01.:15:03.

Of the 650 MPs, under a third - a total of 197 - are women.

:15:04.:15:06.

Labour has the best record with women,

:15:07.:15:08.

making up 43% of the parliamentary party.

:15:09.:15:14.

Meanwhile, 32% of SNP MPs are women, while the figure

:15:15.:15:17.

Of the eight Liberal Democr`t MPs, all are men.

:15:18.:15:27.

It seems slightly odd to have four white men are sitting in front of

:15:28.:15:34.

you giving evidence... With respect, that is your fault, not ours! I am

:15:35.:15:41.

very proud to be leader of the Labour Party and present our views

:15:42.:15:46.

on it. We have 43% of Labour MPs who are women. I would like it to be

:15:47.:15:51.

more and our aspiration is to gain at least 50% of women MPs in

:15:52.:15:53.

Parliament. all-women shortlists had made

:15:54.:15:53.

an incredible difference. It was very controversial when first

:15:54.:16:03.

promoted in the party in thd early 1970s. I was accused of being a far

:16:04.:16:09.

left extremist for promoting ideas like that. Can you imagine such a

:16:10.:16:11.

thing? to reports of bullying

:16:12.:16:12.

inside the Labour party. What assurances will you give to all

:16:13.:16:22.

of your members right now that your party will do more to end the

:16:23.:16:26.

intimidation currently taking place in your party? You are assuling the

:16:27.:16:32.

party is riddled with intimhdation. It is not. There is some

:16:33.:16:35.

intimidation which goes on. I am dealing with it. We have codes of

:16:36.:16:41.

conduct, rules, processes, `nd it has been dealt with. We are also a

:16:42.:16:46.

very large party with well over half a million members and growing fast.

:16:47.:16:52.

I want to make sure those ndw members all understand the rules,

:16:53.:16:57.

understand the code of condtct, understand the behaviour expected

:16:58.:17:01.

from them within the party. One last question, Jeremy, which is this ..

:17:02.:17:07.

Why do you think a woman dohng the job that I do as a member of

:17:08.:17:10.

Parliament is far more likely to receive abuse for doing it than me?

:17:11.:17:17.

The society in which we livd in is unfortunately still quite sdxist and

:17:18.:17:22.

in many cases quite misogynhst. Read the style of writing of a lot of

:17:23.:17:26.

popular newspapers that I al sure you do not and you will beghn to see

:17:27.:17:28.

where a lot of this comes from. why her party had not

:17:29.:17:31.

introduced all-women shortlhsts If you were pushed out the prime

:17:32.:17:41.

minister came to you and sahd, how are we going to get more

:17:42.:17:43.

conservative women MPs in Parliament, would you say all women

:17:44.:17:51.

short lists are the way to go? I think imposing VAT on the

:17:52.:17:57.

Conservative Association wotld possibly risk a resentment which

:17:58.:18:00.

would not help a member of Parliament. -- imposing VAT. --

:18:01.:18:13.

imposing this. What about the evidence of good positive

:18:14.:18:16.

discrimination? We can see hn this room some of us are here because we

:18:17.:18:19.

were on all women short lists and that is why we have got better

:18:20.:18:24.

representation. I am just worried that you are going, no, we don't

:18:25.:18:31.

want to do that. If I may s`y so, we have made progress. We want to make

:18:32.:18:34.

more progress. I think the progress that was made in the last tdn years

:18:35.:18:39.

has been with measures which we have taken which have been acceptable in

:18:40.:18:43.

the Conservative party. The Conservative party have onlx ever

:18:44.:18:47.

managed to get 123 women eldcted and we have thousands of women who are

:18:48.:18:53.

members. I hear warm words from you but how are you going to convince

:18:54.:18:57.

this committee that these w`rm words will lead to more women at the next

:18:58.:19:05.

election rather than a statts quo? Judge as by our actions and what has

:19:06.:19:10.

happened in the last few ye`rs. The thing that I would say is that we

:19:11.:19:15.

have made lots of progress `nd we are going to continue to do that.

:19:16.:19:17.

We have gone on a journey which has seen as implement mechanisms leading

:19:18.:19:32.

to significant change. The SNP is a very democratic political p`rty It

:19:33.:19:36.

does not happen because of the will of one person but there are people

:19:37.:19:39.

throughout the party, parliamentarians and members who

:19:40.:19:42.

have brought about that change and we are still in a process.

:19:43.:19:44.

that his party's record was "lamentable" but was

:19:45.:19:47.

looking at ways to improve the selection process.

:19:48.:19:52.

There are people in every p`rty who are out and out dinosaurs btt some

:19:53.:19:59.

who also consider themselves to be liberal, progressive, open-linded

:20:00.:20:04.

and tolerant but nonetheless bias they did not recognise in

:20:05.:20:07.

themselves. We all need to be trained to understand.

:20:08.:20:09.

was to avoid interference but he believed in what he called
