Reference Code: GBR/0014/SOBA 1/57

Scope and Contents

Goodman and Wollaston separately discuss the #Brexit Amendable Vote in December 2018. Goodman is the Labour MP for Bishop Auckland and she sits on the House of Commons Procedure Committee that decides how the proceedings in the House of Commons will be conducted when Theresa May's Withdrawal Bill is put to vote. The Committee decided the motion to approve the Bill would be fully amendable allowing MPs to suggest improvements to it. Goodman planned to vote against the Bill because she represented a constituency that embraces manufacturing industries she wanted to remain in the customs union. Goodman and Sones speak about her Twitter spat with BBC Presenter Andrew Neil saying that 'the years of belittling women are past' and she had an apology from him. Wollaston said that her Stalking Protection Bill would allow victims of stalking to apply for protection orders from the police rather than having to go to court initially, but that if such an order was broken criminal action could be taken and the penalties would be severe with up to five years in prison.
