Brexit: Article 50 Period Extension Procedure - Statement (18 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: Well, I think we all feel rather sorry for the Minister, who has, after all, said again and again that we will leave on 29 March and now knows that we will not—and that is because of the Prime Minister’s failed strategy of running down the clock to get her own way. We are told that, if the Government are allowed to table the existing deal yet again in the Commons and it wins...

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 2A (15 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, it would be helpful if we could intervene from these Benches just once. I have to say that just at the moment I do not feel like a shadow Minister. I feel rather like Alice through the looking glass, as though I had fallen through a door and discovered myself—I will not say at the Mad Hatter’s tea party—somewhere in quite a different century. On the so-called promise made in...

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 2A (15 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: There were several others but, as we know, the figure has gone down from four to one; that is why I said that, with one exception, they are all men. For most on the list, as we have already heard, we are talking about men; in a House of only 400 or 500 active Members, 91 places will always be held for men. That may not make others ashamed, but it makes me ashamed and I am not even one of the...

Public Procurement (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) (No. 2) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (14 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: Does that apply to the Cabinet Office, which I gather has a rather bad record on paying promptly?

Public Procurement (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) (No. 2) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (14 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: For the record, it was noted in the other place—this may well have been because of a glitch—that the Cabinet Office has one of the worst records on this matter. There were assurances that this would change but it is a bit frightening when the department supposed to be leading on prompt payments is not itself very good.

Public Procurement (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) (No. 2) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (14 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, on CEN and CENELEC, I think the one that dealt with this was the standards one. If it is a different one, perhaps the noble Lord would care to write to me. I refer to the European Committee for Standardization as opposed to CEN and CENELEC, which deal with electrical safety. Some clarification by letter would be helpful.

Public Procurement (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) (No. 2) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (14 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I join the congratulations to the Minister for the breadth of expertise he brings each time he does one of these. We will now test him with some questions. I turn first to the Public Procurement (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) (No. 2) Regulations, which, as the Minister set out, require contracting authorities for 18 months after exit to continue to meet the obligations to third countries which...

Challenges to Validity of EU Instruments (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (14 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, I also thank the Minister for introducing this. As the noble Lord, Lord Beith, said, it is to correct something in paragraph 1 of Schedule 1 to the 2018 Act—which was perhaps a slightly erroneous judgment made at the time. It affects only a handful of cases, but nevertheless we certainly think that the ability to bring those cases is important. I have a few questions. One arises...

Written Answers — Attorney General: National Fund (14 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they hold information about the identity of the donor who set up the National Fund.

Written Answers — Attorney General: National Fund (14 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the Attorney General’s application to the High Court to release the assets of the National Fund has now been concluded; and if so, how those assets are shown in HM Treasury’s accounts.

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: National Fund (14 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: To ask Her Majesty's Government what was the value of the National Fund in each of the last 30 years.

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...
