Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, in answer to a Question from one of her Back-Benchers on the economic consequences of the deal, the Prime Minister said that the people will be no poorer than they are today.

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I am grateful to the committee for its excellent report. I am also grateful, in the main, for the Government’s response.

Brexit: Preparedness for EU Exit - Private Notice Question (25 Oct 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I am not sure if the Minister was present earlier at Question Time when my noble friend Lord Blunkett asked his Question.

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, is it not true that there will be a change on the high street, we have to deal with the reality and we should start planning for it now?
