Ash Dieback - Question (25 Jun 2019)

Lord Framlingham: My Lords—

Brexit: Plant and Animal Biosecurity - Motion to Take Note (15 May 2019)

Lord Framlingham: Before my noble friend sits down, has he had the opportunity to see the briefing produced by the Woodland Trust identifying what it thinks is the way forward on what it calls an effective biosecurity strategy? I wonder whether the Minister has seen it. I seriously recommend it to anybody who is concerned about this subject—it sets out exactly what we should do to protect our trees.

Brexit: Plant and Animal Biosecurity - Motion to Take Note (15 May 2019)

Lord Framlingham: My Lords, I would love to, but I have just had an operation and I shall not be staying for the rest of the debate. But my heart is with you.

Online Harms White Paper - Motion to Take Note (30 Apr 2019)

Lord Framlingham: I have been listening very carefully and have followed the debate from the beginning. Would the right reverend Prelate accept that, given that there is a greater urgency about this matter than just dealing with the White Paper—although that is extremely welcome and constructive—and given that even as we speak, primary school children are accessing hardcore porn, sadly it is now time for...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill - Third Reading: Motion (8 Apr 2019)

Lord Framlingham: My Lords, this is really all about kicking the can down the road. I would guess that it must be quite a dented can by now. We have to ask where the road is leading: leave or stay, there is no middle way. All the other issues are just distractions. We have seen various complicated deals such as backstops, second referendums, customs unions—and now we have the thoughts of Jeremy Corbyn. They...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill - Third Reading: Motion (8 Apr 2019)

Lord Framlingham: Noble Lords may snigger, as they have done for the past two and a half years, but they have to listen sometimes. It would remove the uncertainty and businesses could get on with their jobs. We can make trade deals with nations like the United States and save £39 billion. It is the constant fruitless, pointless debates and discussions that are so wearying and so debilitating. Once free from...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill - Committee: Amendment 7 (8 Apr 2019)

Lord Framlingham: In among what is obviously an increasing shambles, can the Minister confirm that we leave the European Union this Friday by an existing Act of Parliament, and that the Government have conceded that—although this is not their chosen course of action—it could be quite successfully managed?

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill - Committee: Amendment 4 (8 Apr 2019)

Lord Framlingham: Given that my noble friend has put uncertainty at the heart of her remarks, does she not think that at least some credence should be given to the idea of coming out and leaving Europe this Friday, which would give the certainty that everyone craves? There may be difficulties, but given that certainty is one of the overriding factors, surely that should be considered.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill - Committee: Amendment 5 (8 Apr 2019)

Lord Framlingham: My Lords—

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill - Committee: Amendment 5 (8 Apr 2019)

Lord Framlingham: My Lords—

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill - Committee: Amendment 5 (8 Apr 2019)

Lord Framlingham: It may be the only time I ask. The noble and learned Lord started his remarks by using the phrase “crashing out”. Everybody talks about crashing out. The BBC talks about crashing out. Sky News talks about crashing out. It has been part of the propaganda all along. Precisely what problems will be caused if we leave this coming Friday?

Brexit: Date of Exit - Question (8 Apr 2019)

Lord Framlingham: My Lords, could I urge the Minister to make it clear that, if we should leave the European Union this coming Friday, it would be neither catastrophic nor chaotic? It is true there might be some initial problems, but a lot of major issues would be cleared away immediately, and certainty would certainly be welcomed by the whole nation. It would give us a chance for a successful departure from...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill - Second Reading (4 Apr 2019)

Lord Framlingham: For the sake of the record, would the noble Lord confirm to the House that he is doing all he possibly can to keep our country in the European Union?

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Lord Framlingham: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the noble and learned Lord, Lord Brown, and I agree entirely with his remarks—particularly his final recommendation. The one thing of which he cannot be accused is being a member of the ERG, which is very refreshing. I shall be brief, because, as always in these debates, much has been said. However, I claim the right to say what I think on...

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Lord Framlingham: Not at all; on the contrary, I accuse him of honesty. He is honest all the time: he wants to stop us leaving the EU and is working night and day to stop it happening. That is what I said, and if he can deny that, I will give way to him again. I do not want to impugn; it is dangerous to get into this, as it gets very emotive, and I know that we do not want to—

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Lord Framlingham: I will be perfectly honest: if I had my way, we would have a no-deal Brexit and would be out in a few days’ time. We would have the certainty the country is crying out for, and businesses and companies would be able to get on with the job they have been told will need to be done. We would save ourselves £39 billion. It would be refreshing—we would be on our way. There is no doubt about...

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Lord Framlingham: Yes, we are. If the noble Lord does not understand that—he has been here longer than me—he understands nothing at all. In truth, as I said, it is all part of the same thing. The House did not like it last time I warned it of the damage we will do to ourselves if we are not careful. Some people think that by taking time to look at this today, we are somehow damaging our reputation. People...

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Lord Framlingham: I want to press on. I will be accused of filibustering again in a minute, and that is the last thing I want. A relatively small number in this House—those of us who think like I do about how we deal with our constitutional affairs and such issues, and I link that to the whole EU debate—speak for the people outside this House. I believe that, and that is why many of us feel we have to do...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (Exit Day) (Amendment) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (27 Mar 2019)

Lord Framlingham: My Lords, I am normally quite an optimistic man, but now I am really very close—at least in parliamentary terms—to despair. I despair for the Commons, I despair for your Lordships’ House and the way we have behaved over the past two years, and I despair for the British people who are being so appallingly governed. As an ex-Deputy Speaker, I am really saddened by the way our...

Business of the House - Motion to Agree: Amendment to the Motion (26 Mar 2019)

Lord Framlingham: What does my noble friend suppose the effect will be on all the businesses that have prepared to leave on 29 March?
