United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 1 - Purpose of Part 1 (22 Sep 2020)

Lucy Powell: I rise to speak to the amendments and new clauses in my name, and in the names of my right hon. and hon. Friends. We are the end of four full days of debate on the Bill. We have heard from many new Members, some of whom I, until recently, served with on the Education Committee, as we have just heard. Remarkably, we also heard a former Conservative Prime Minister, a former Northern Ireland...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 1 - Purpose of Part 1 (22 Sep 2020)

Lucy Powell: The hon. Lady makes a good point. As Labour has been arguing throughout this crisis, local decisions are how we are going to overcome this virus, if we can make them effectively. Many of the Government amendments are a tidying-up exercise and we have no quarrel with them.

Wales: Support for the Steel Industry: Covid-19 (16 Sep 2020)

Lucy Powell: In the debate led by my hon. Friend the Member for Newport East (Jessica Morden) held in this House the other evening, we heard about how the Welsh steel sector has been so adversely affected by this economic crisis. The response from the Minister who replied was yet again, I am afraid, lots of warm words. When are we going to see more action, notwithstanding Celsa, to support this vital...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 28 - Functions of the CMA under this Part: general provisions (15 Sep 2020)

Lucy Powell: This might be where we differ, as I was going to come on to say, because we believe that the ultimate arbiter of the UK internal market would need to be the UK Parliament. Our amendments seek to ensure that negotiations through common frameworks are conducted in good faith and given proper time and that this would need to come back to the UK Parliament in primary legislation, rather than...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 28 - Functions of the CMA under this Part: general provisions (15 Sep 2020)

Lucy Powell: I absolutely do. My hon. Friend has made some powerful points today about the disrespectful way in which the Welsh Government were consulted over the Bill, and he is absolutely right to highlight those. I am afraid that, if that continues, that will not be good at all. Labour firmly believes that the UK single market is the foundation stone of our Union and brings huge economic benefits to...

Treasury: Manufacturers: Support (15 Sep 2020)

Lucy Powell: Many of the communities that voted for Conservative MPs for the first time in the recent election rely on our key manufacturing sectors such as aerospace and automotive for jobs. Given that the Government were prepared to create a £3 billion demand stimulus for the housing market, which was not as adversely affected by the pandemic, why will they not do a lot more to protect those jobs and...
