Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Dec 2017)

Heidi Alexander: Tonight this House will hopefully have the chance to vote on my new clause 22 to the EU (Withdrawal) Bill, which would give Parliament the power at a future date to determine whether we leave the single market by coming out of the European Economic Area. It does not dictate how hon. Members should then vote, but it does ensure proper democratic oversight. Should not it be our sovereign...

Brexit Negotiations (11 Dec 2017)

Heidi Alexander: When the Prime Minister and her colleagues were patting themselves on the back last week for surviving the first round of negotiations, Irish freight handler John Dunne told ITV News it was “a fudge”.

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Dec 2017)

Heidi Alexander: I put it to the Secretary of State that his Government’s dogmatic insistence on pulling us out of the single market and the customs union threatens not only our future jobs, rights and prosperity, but the future territorial integrity of our country. When he looks back in a few years’ time and reflects on his role in creating this mess, how does he think he will feel?

International Trade: Topical Questions (23 Nov 2017)

Heidi Alexander: Clause 2 of the Trade Bill gives powers to Ministers, potentially for the whole of the next decade, to sort out the issue of the 60 or so trade agreements that we currently benefit from with third countries by virtue of our membership with the EU. Far from being resolved in the next 16 months, is it not the case that that issue—dividing up tariff quotas and so on, and defining a new...

Medicines Regulation — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (21 Nov 2017)

Heidi Alexander: I am grateful to the Minister for his exposition of the current state of life sciences in the UK, all of which we could probably find out if we typed a few words into Google.

What will the regulatory environment be for pharmaceutical companies that wish to get a pan-European licence in April 2019, during the...

Medicines Regulation — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (21 Nov 2017)

Heidi Alexander: I am grateful to the Minister for giving way. Mr Davies, I hope that it is not out of order to say that the Minister does not quite seem himself. If he is poorly, and my earlier remarks were somewhat curt, I apologise for them. It would help everyone here to understand the Government’s overriding objective for medicines regulations in a post-Brexit environment. Do we intend to...

Heidi Alexander: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Bishop Auckland (Helen Goodman) on securing the debate and on introducing the topic in such a comprehensive manner. This debate is both timely and hugely important. It is timely due to the announcement yesterday that Amsterdam is to become the new home of the European Medicines Agency...

Medicines Regulation — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (21 Nov 2017)

Heidi Alexander: I agree with the hon. Gentleman, but when I speak to scientists at institutions across the UK, they are already seeing the effect of last year’s referendum result in terms of EU-wide partnerships being withdrawn and being harder to secure. It would be helpful if the Minister could update us on which of the two approaches the chief executive of the MHRA talked about in July the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (15 Nov 2017)
