Brexit - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: We understand that it might be on Monday, but I think that the letter will therefore already have arrived in Brussels by the time the meaningful vote is taken on Monday.

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, we may not have had the excitement of the vote at the other end, but this debate has showcased this House at its very best in the quality of the speeches and the sheer scope and depth of experience. We heard from a trade union leader; a filmmaker; a former Lord Chancellor; a former Lord Chief Justice; permanent secretaries; journalists; three Earls, two Viscounts and a Duke; a...

Brexit: Customs Controls at Holyhead - Question (17 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, yesterday we asked what would happen under the new deal about the length of the transition period, given that we originally asked for two years. I think that the Government the first time settled for 20 months; it now seems that, if the date of December next year is true, we would have only 14 months to put all this in place. Given that Holyhead is our second-busiest port, how does...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (15 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I heard from behind me: “Does he believe all that?” My Lords, I am delighted that this two-day debate rightly places our relationship with the EU in the wider context of defence and foreign affairs, because our relationship with our near neighbours, trading partners and close friends lies at the heart of our wider global defence, security, commercial and diplomatic relations. Indeed, how...

Brexit: Preparations - Statement (8 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I thank the Minister for repeating the Statement which, despite what we hear from sources at No. 10, claims, “the strong desire of this Government to leave the EU with a deal”. It is now 76 days since Mr Johnson became Prime Minister and 23 days until 31 October, but he has failed to get a deal: a failure that he said, and for which he would share responsibility, would represent “a...

Brexit: Preparations - Statement (8 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I referred to leaving without a deal without the consent of the House of Commons.

Elections and Referenda: Protection Against Corruption - Question (7 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: Will the Minister assure the House that no government spending will be used to promote a partisan approach to Brexit, particularly as we are likely to have an election fairly soon? It appears to be the case now, because a whole lot of ads are being funded by taxpayers’ money saying that we will leave on 31 October, despite legislation passed, including by this House, which makes that...

Brexit: Divergence from EU Standards - Question (3 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, given that, according to the Minister, we will have different standards from the EU but that, as we heard yesterday, Northern Ireland will be aligned with EU standards and regulations for at least four years, I take it that there will be a border between Great Britain and Northern Ireland on standards. Is that right?

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (2 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: Can the noble Lord explain what would happen if I, as a consumer, buy something and then travel to the other part of Ireland? Who will check the goods that I bought in one place and then took across the border?

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (2 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: It was the sovereignty Act.

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (2 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: Some reference was made to it being a Private Member’s Bill. Some of us will remember Sydney Silverman’s Bill to get rid of the death penalty or the Bill of the noble Lord, Lord Steel, on abortion. They were Private Members’ Bills. Is the Minister saying that the origin of a Bill means that the Government may not have to agree with it? It is an Act of Parliament. Surely the Benn Act,...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (2 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, my noble friend Lord Whitty confessed that he is going to weep on 31 October if we leave then. For myself, I have booked to see “Dracula”, the ballet, that night, which somehow seemed rather appropriate. I am afraid I have to respond to the noble Lord, Lord Hamilton—and it is not just because I am wearing the Lady Hale tribute brooch. He asked what we have achieved by sitting...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (2 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: Would the noble Baroness agree that it is in fact like trying to play the finals while threatening to walk off if you do not win the first round?

Brexit Readiness and Operation Yellowhammer - Statement (25 Sep 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I will thank the Minister for repeating the Statement; but where are the plans for a deal? The Statement has got nothing on them. That is not because they are being kept confidential in order to aid negotiations, as the Minister claimed earlier. It is not even to stop Parliament scrutinising the potential deal. It is because there is nothing to scrutinise. We need to consider the UK offer...

Extension of Article 50 - Private Notice Question (25 Sep 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: Reading tweets avidly, as I do, I see that somebody is still briefing that while the letter asking for an extension—as required in this Act—will be sent by the Prime Minister, it might be accompanied by another one saying, “But please don’t say yes”. Could the Minister confirm that there will be no attempt to circumvent the Act and that any legal advice from the Attorney-General...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Third Reading: Motion (6 Sep 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, I thank everyone who has been here for what has been a most extraordinary experience. There are some people not in the Chamber who we should also thank. Those in the Public Bill Office and the Printed Paper Office have enabled us to deal with the Bill in an unusual way. They have worked, along with the doorkeepers, above and beyond the call of duty. On our side, to be personal for a...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Report: Amendment 2 (6 Sep 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, it may help the House if we are able to curtail this fairly quickly. The noble Lord said at the beginning of the debate that he was going to press the amendment, so we cannot persuade him to withdraw it, which is what we usually try to do. I will make a few comments, then my noble friend Lord Rooker can respond and we can move on. On the will of the people, there are two ways of...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Committee: Amendment 1 (6 Sep 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord James of Blackheath, for raising what are obviously much wider issues than are contained in his amendment. The amendment itself is probably not necessary and therefore we will not support it. I want to make one point about today. From today there are 55 days until Brexit. Anyone who has gone to the Hampstead Theatre recently will have seen the play “55...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Second Reading (5 Sep 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, I do not know whether the Front Bench will be doing its normal practice of looking after the conventions of the House but I believe that only people who were here for the opening speeches normally intervene.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Second Reading (5 Sep 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, this is actually a simple and quite straightforward Bill, but that does not make it unimportant. What it seeks to prevent—a no-deal crash-out on the simple say-so of the Prime Minister—has major implications. Like other noble Lords, I spent August in France where, at a birthday party, I met Monsieur Serge Ratel, born in Normandy soon after the war. Learning that I was British,...
