Further Developments in Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (11 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts, says, “It ain’t over till the fat lady sings”. I am not sure whether he is expecting me to break into song to signal that we are near the end of this debate, or whether he was referring to the Prime Minister, who is touching down about now in Strasbourg.

Further Developments in Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (11 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: Listening to Ministers—not tonight, but on other occasions—one might think that the lack of an agreement is all the EU’s fault. However, of course, it is we who chose to leave the EU: that is, we as a country, not necessarily as individuals. Mrs May chose her red lines before she understood the task or consulted those who did. Mrs May chose to trigger Article 50 and thus our exit day....

Further Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (27 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I know Cabinet responsibility has gone a little awry on that side, but we actually still have it. We have made it clear—Keir Starmer, Emily Thornberry and I have made it clear—

Further Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (27 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: On his behalf. We do not wheel him out on every occasion to make these speeches. I can call him in, if you like. We are quite clear what the questions are. It depends what happens down there but, assuming a deal goes through, it would be the deal that goes through against remain.

Further Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (27 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, it is a good thing that the Minister has a sense of humour. I have to say that he is struggling not just with his throat but with finding anything new to say. That, I understand: some of us are in the same position. More seriously, he is struggling to recognise the seriousness of the state we are in. I think it would be good if the Minister would heed the advice given to him the...

Further Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (27 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: So the consumers will pay. Just an extra 5% on tariffs? Are we really going to go round subsidising food?

Further Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (27 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I am talking about the tariffs that we will have to apply to the goods that we import, such as meat and cheese. Those will be paid for by consumers. The Government’s own analysis shows the likelihood of food shortages and increased prices just from the interruption to trade, but a lower pound—whereby people will have less money in their pockets to buy any imported food—means that, in...

Further Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (27 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: We do. I made it clear yesterday—I am not sure whether the noble Baroness was in her place when I spoke to the House—that no deal is our choice because if we amend the deal on the table, we can get one. It is our choice, not that of the other side. The costs of no deal, as I said, have been set out. The worries of the CBI, the IoD and of all the others have been made pretty clear to the...

Further Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (27 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: It is a shame that he will not be replying but I am sure that his colleague—judging from that lovely poker face of his—has made a careful note of that and will respond later today. We know that one bit, at least, of the Government is listening because we know they are preparing to set up a hardship fund—presumably with the money that the noble Lord, Lord Lilley, thinks will be available...

Leaving the European Union - Statement (26 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness for repeating the Statement on Brexit, which is clearly high on everyone’s agenda. I have sat beside my noble friend Lady Smith of Basildon on previous occasions when she has rightly described the Government as, “living in the moment ... managing to get through another week …providing less clarity rather than more … failing to give any confidence...

Brexit: Legislation - Question (20 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, I am glad that the Minister has a sense of humour: I think she is going to need it. She says it was very easy to get the trailer Bill through. I think we have to be aware—I am looking at the Chief Whip—that the trailer Bill will be a tad easier than such Bills as the immigration Bill and, indeed, the withdrawal agreement Bill, which, if I understand the letter from David...

Small Business Index - Question (18 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, I was particularly worried when the noble Lord, Lord Callanan, said that they only knew about Honda as they walked into the Chamber. We also know that the Government were blindsided by Flybmi. It is really alarming that our Government do not seem to know what is happening in their own industries. Mike Cherry of the FSB also mentioned part of the reason for their dismay. He asked...

Brexit: Options - Question (18 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, I think I heard the Minister say that the default legal position if the Government cannot get a majority is to leave without a deal. That may be the default legal position, but it is clearly not the default moral position. Will the Government start thinking about the country and be more serious about looking for cross-party, cross-Parliament support for a deal that can command a...

EU Withdrawal - Motion to Take Note (13 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, considering the lessons of the Brexit debate, the CER’s Charles Grant starts with a dig—although it might have been a compliment—at the noble Lord, Lord Kerr. He describes Article 50 as having been, “designed to put the departing country in a weak position”, but he then reckons that, “the British damaged their already weak hand by putting incompetent and ignorant...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: EU Grants and Loans (12 Feb 2019)

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: UK Shared Prosperity Fund (11 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: To ask Her Majesty's Government what progress they have made on the design and implementation of their proposed Shared Prosperity Fund.

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: UK Shared Prosperity Fund (11 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: To ask Her Majesty's Government when they expect to consult on the design and implementation of their proposed Shared Prosperity Fund; and whether the consultation will include the option of allocating the fund on the basis of need rather than population.
