Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the report by the Fraser of Allander Institute Economic Perspectives: Could a reduction in alcohol consumption be good news for the UK economy?, published in June 2018, in particular its finding that an increase in alcohol taxes could boost national income and create 17,000 jobs; and what steps, if any, they intend to take in...

Brexit: Preparations - Statement (21 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: It was said in the Statement and repeated in answer to a question that, following the advice of officials, this preparation should go ahead. I think I have the wording right. Will the Minister confirm whether that is simply the advice of civil servants, whom I respect greatly, or the legal advice the Government have been given?

Brexit: Preparations - Statement (21 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I thank the Minister, back again after his long stint on Saturday—and no doubt looking forward to the XO committee, which I believe he serves on, meeting seven days a week—for repeating the Statement. However, I have to question the underlying assumption, and indeed perhaps even the legality, of these preparations. If Mr Gove is so confident that we will leave on 31 October with a deal,...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: Is the Minister going on to say what will happen in the Commons on Monday and whether the meaningful vote is due to be put there again on Monday?

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...
