European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: International treaties and agreements (13 Dec 2017)

Desmond Swayne: I have a great deal of affection and respect for the hon. Member for Nottingham East (Mr Leslie), and he has drawn attention to a perfectly proper area of concern, to which, strangely, his remedy is merely a report—but then the mask slipped. We have heard all this sanctimonious guff this afternoon about the need for this House to take back control and about proper...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: International treaties and agreements (13 Dec 2017)

Desmond Swayne: Swansea West. The hon. Member for Nottingham East said that he did not believe that people should not have an opportunity to revisit their decision, and that they have a perfect right to change their mind—I accept that.

Desmond Swayne: This is a filibuster.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: International treaties and agreements (13 Dec 2017)

Desmond Swayne: Because the hon. Gentleman has, notwithstanding his personal views, accepted the will of the electorate, no doubt the logic of where he is leading us is to put off leaving the European Union for some indeterminate period of time until all these issues are sorted out.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Welsh Ministers — Power to make consequential and transitional provision (6 Dec 2017)

Desmond Swayne: The difficulty is that it will be in the interests of Scotland that there is a swift increase in the volume of trade as a consequence of new trade agreements that are negotiated. That will be significantly limited if the powers to deliver those agreements have been diffused throughout the United Kingdom.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Welsh Ministers — Power to make consequential and transitional provision (6 Dec 2017)

Desmond Swayne: Given the thrust of the hon. Gentleman’s amendments, has it occurred to him that these powers were ceded to the EU in order to maintain an integrity of the internal market?
