Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: Oh! I had not noticed. Mr Baker was looking forward to the Bill coming to your Lordships’ House, in the, “fervent hope that their Lordships will examine this Bill line by line”,—[ Official Report, Commons, 3/4/19; col. 1217.] and give it good attention. The hope was that we would get on and deal with the Bill, and that is what this Motion is about. However, I speak now to only the...

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I am sure the noble Lord does, but I would like to answer the point that the noble Baroness the Leader of the House made some time ago, which I have not been able to answer. She is in a difficult position; I understand that. She is a member of the Cabinet and of the governing party, but she is also the Leader of the House. In the absence of a Speaker with authority—although we do have a...

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I think the noble Lord has spoken quite enough. We have heard from him; I think we know his views. We should not still be debating the content of the Bill, because we have not got on to it. We want a Second Reading. We can vote against the Bill if we do not like it; that is the democratic way of dealing with a Bill that you do not like. But to try to talk out the ability of us even to take...

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders (4 Apr 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, unconventional times call for unconventional measures. What are these times? The country faces the possibility of an exit from the EU without a deal; a disorderly exit that nobody wants. The Prime Minister does not want it, business and the CBI do not want it, the TUC does not want it, the House of Commons does not want it, and your Lordships’ House voted against a no-deal exit by...

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders (4 Apr 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I believe the conventions of the House, to which the noble Lord used to adhere, mean that it is my decision whether to give way. I have decided not to. We, rather than the Government, had to table this Motion, which would allow us to take all stages of the Bill today and add it to today’s agenda. However, it is not just the Government who are failing to respond to the decision of the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (Exit Day) (Amendment) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (27 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: That is not fair. How can I follow that? I will say two things to the noble and learned Lord, Lord Keen. He mentioned Robert Peston; of course, when I first came here, his father Lord Peston was sitting behind me. I think he would have enjoyed today’s proceedings, maybe for all the wrong reasons. I should also say to the noble and learned Lord that using the example of the Baron amendment,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (Exit Day) (Amendment) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (27 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, Members of this and the other House have spoken of their shame or embarrassment about how the Prime Minister and the negotiators she appointed, Messieurs Davis, Raab and Barclay, have handled our dealings with the EU. Today’s statutory instrument is a manifestation of their failure. The Prime Minister has failed to unite her Cabinet, her Government, her party or the Commons, let...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (Exit Day) (Amendment) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (27 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: Indeed, I am as questioning on that. That apparently, from very good leaks, was what the Attorney-General said to the Cabinet. Unfortunately, I do not have access to it. It may not be the case, but that is what was being briefed—I do not think that the Attorney-General will be speaking utter nonsense, which is what I think I heard from the other side of the House. It is what Robert Peston says.
