Written Ministerial Statements — Cabinet Office: The European Union (Withdrawal) Act and Common Frameworks Report (24 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: I am today laying before Parliament a report, ‘The European Union (Withdrawal) Act and Common Frameworks - 26 June 2019 to 25 September 2019’ as required by paragraph 4 of Schedule 3 to the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. The report is available on Gov.uk and details the progress made in discussions between the UK Government and devolved administrations regarding common frameworks...

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (23 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: It is my responsibility to prepare this country for Brexit. I am delighted that so many democrats across the House voted for the Second Reading of the withdrawal agreement Bill last night, and the universal cry from across this country is: please, get Brexit done.

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (23 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: Scotland’s businesses benefit from being part of our United Kingdom. I gently remind the hon. Lady, as the Minister for the Cabinet Office and Paymaster General pointed out earlier, that more Scots voted to leave the European Union than voted for the Scottish nationalist party at the last general election.

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (23 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: It is very interesting to hear from the hon. Gentleman. He does not believe in devolution; he believes in smashing up our United Kingdom, so I will take no lectures from him on making our UK institutions work in the interests of all.

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (23 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: I am very grateful to the hon. Lady. I know how seriously she takes these issues. Through the XO Committee, we are working with local resilience forums and with the Department for Education, the Department of Health and Social Care and the Department for Work and Pensions to ensure that vulnerable groups are protected come what may.

Preparations for Leaving the European Union (21 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his questions and, in particular, I am grateful for his kind words about the civil service. One of the many things we have in common, as well as representing constituencies that voted leave and being opposed to a second referendum, is that both of us are huge fans of the civil service and appreciate the great work done by civil servants every day for all of us...

Preparations for Leaving the European Union (21 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: My right hon. Friend makes a good point. It is the case that we co-operate with EU nations in a variety in forums, not just through the EU; that the security of all benefits as a result; and that many of the shared tools for law enforcement and national security that we have allow EU citizens to benefit from intelligence gathered by our agencies. We hope to conclude a new arrangement as...

Preparations for Leaving the European Union (21 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: One of the many reasons I had hoped the hon. Gentleman would have become deputy leader of the Scottish National party was shown in the way in which he delivered his questions without notes, with great fluency and authority. All of us in this House recognise what a great speaker he is. What a pity, however, that a very well delivered speech got one or two fundamental aspects of the position in...

Preparations for Leaving the European Union (21 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: My right hon. Friend makes a very fair point. If we leave without the withdrawal agreement being ratified, we will leave without that deal. “No deal” is sometimes used to cover that specific outcome, and it is with respect to that widely accepted description that I use the term. He is right to say there are other agreements, and there will continue to be agreements, that we have...

Preparations for Leaving the European Union (21 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: I will share with the House the revised planning assumptions in Yellowhammer very shortly. It is the case that the level of business readiness has increased, and we expect that a significantly increased number of vehicles will be ready. That obviously has an effect on flow at the border, but we are being deliberately cautious. We are copper-fastening those assumptions and I hope to share them...

Preparations for Leaving the European Union (21 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: My right hon. Friend makes a number of good points. The first is that in the no-deal preparation document, which was shared with the House on 8 October and runs to some 150 pages, we ran through many of the arrangements that have been put in place—some agreed and some the unilateral decision of the EU—to make sure that if we leave without an agreement, we can mitigate the risks in all...

Preparations for Leaving the European Union (21 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: First, I thank the hon. Lady for her question, because it gives me the opportunity to echo her in saying how much we value the work of local pharmacists and how critical they are to the effective operation of our NHS in providing all our constituents with the treatments that they need in an effective and timely way. Talking of the effective and timely delivery of medicine, it is the case that...

Preparations for Leaving the European Union (21 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: My hon. Friend is 100% spot on and I am completely in agreement with him.

Preparations for Leaving the European Union (21 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: If we leave without a deal and that is the situation that prevails on 1 November, no such checks would be required at all.

Preparations for Leaving the European Union (21 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: I can only answer the question that was asked.

Preparations for Leaving the European Union (21 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: That gives me the opportunity to say a profound thank you to my hon. Friend who, as a Minister in the Department for Exiting the European Union, undertook heroic efforts to ensure that we were as well prepared as possible. In so far as we were not well prepared, it was because of other factors, because his own efforts in that regard were focused, public spirited and highly effective. It is...

Preparations for Leaving the European Union (21 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: I am absolutely convinced that we will maintain those arrangements.

Preparations for Leaving the European Union (21 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. We have an opportunity. There have been various different projections—reasonable worst-case scenarios and other projections—in respect of what might happen in the event of no deal. I absolutely assure him that if the House takes the opportunity it now has to vote for the deal, none of those scenarios will materialise and we will be able to move to the...

Preparations for Leaving the European Union (21 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: The right hon. Lady’s parliamentary colleague, the hon. Member for Nottingham East (Mr Leslie), asked about arrangements on 1 November. We would only need to have different arrangements on 1 November—

Preparations for Leaving the European Union (21 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: I am answering the question. We can have a nice conversation outside, but I will take this opportunity to answer the question before the right hon. Lady comes back. The hon. Gentleman’s question related to events and provisions on 1 November. I note that the right hon. Lady is referring to the deal and yes, it is the case that those provisions would come into effect if we had the deal, but...
