Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Brexit (19 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: It is not the Government’s policy to seek seeking to extend the Article 50 process. We will use all the time available to get the right agreement for the UK and one that works in the mutual interest of both sides.

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Brexit (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: We do not want or expect a no deal outcome. However, a responsible government should prepare for all potential outcomes, including the unlikely scenario in which no mutually satisfactory agreement can be reached. The Government is undertaking a wide range of analysis and preparatory work, across a range of scenarios, that will contribute to our exit negotiations with the EU, to define our...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Portsmouth Port (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: Ministers from across Government have carried out an extensive ongoing programme of engagement on EU exit - with businesses and industry bodies from all sectors of the economy and in all parts of the UK. In January 2017, Lord Bridges visited Portsmouth and attended a roundtable with local businesses to seek their perspective. Ministers have also met with representatives from a range of UK...

Exiting the European Union: Single Market: North-west Economy (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: The Department for Exiting the European Union is working with all Departments at both ministerial and official level to ensure that our preparations for exit from, and new partnership with, the EU are on track. We are committed to seeking the best possible deal for the United Kingdom—one that works for all the regions of the country, including the north-west. I was delighted to visit...

Exiting the European Union: Single Market: North-west Economy (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: I very strongly disagree with the hon. Gentleman’s analysis. During my visit to the north-west I was pleased to meet with thriving businesses that are looking forward to the economic opportunities flowing from Brexit, such as trading with an expanded global marketplace. Together with huge investment in the north-west, such as the Mersey Gateway bridge and the northern hub in Manchester,...

Exiting the European Union: Single Market: North-west Economy (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: Absolutely; the integrity of the United Kingdom is paramount as we pursue these negotiations. I am very encouraged by the Government’s commitment to securing a unique and mutually beneficial free trade agreement with the European Union, that supports our businesses, our jobs and our economy.

Exiting the European Union: Single Market: North-west Economy (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: Let us look globally: we have an economy that has increased output—those are the CBI’s figures—we have the OECD upgrading growth forecasts for this year and next, and we have the lowest net borrowing in over a decade. That is a very different picture from that suggested by the predictions that were made two years ago. Let us base our position on facts, not scaremongering...

Exiting the European Union: Free Trade Agreements (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: We have been clear that the UK will be leaving the EU’s customs union and the single market in March 2019. Only by leaving the customs union and establishing a new and ambitious customs arrangement with the EU will we be able to forge new trade relationships with our partners around the world. If the UK were to remain in the customs union, we would be unable to implement our own trade...

Exiting the European Union: Free Trade Agreements (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: I agree with my hon. Friend. A customs union creates an asymmetrical relationship. Turkey is an example of a country in a customs union with the EU but not in the customs union with the EU. The effect of that is that if the EU signs a free trade agreement with a third country—let us say, the US or Canada—goods from the US or Canada can enter Turkey tariff-free, but Turkish goods...

Exiting the European Union: Free Trade Agreements (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: I agree with my hon. Friend. You may well agree, Mr Speaker, that cider is a delicious drink and, if I may be so bold, like me you may have had many a joyous occasion, perhaps in your teenage or university days, where the memories were enhanced precisely because of the consumption of cider. I am very pleased that companies, particularly in my hon. Friend’s constituency and her region,...

Exiting the European Union: Free Trade Agreements (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: Yes. Remaining in a customs union or the customs union with the EU would not be compatible with having a meaningful, independent trade policy. It would mean that we would have less control than we have now over our trading relationships with other countries. Neither leave nor remain voters would want that.

Exiting the European Union: Free Trade Agreements (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: I disagree with the hon. Gentleman’s description. The automotive sector is one of our great success stories and the Government will continue to support it. Just this April, Vauxhall announced an investment of more than £100 million in its UK plant, to build the next generation of Vivaro vans. We are seeing more and more success in the sector. We have to support that, and that will...

Exiting the European Union: Free Trade Agreements (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: The hon. Lady is right to highlight the issue of rules of origin with regard to the sector. We want to ensure as limited friction as possible, with a tariff-free arrangement for goods, so that we have the integrated supply chains that are vital to the success of the sector.

Exiting the European Union: Free Trade Agreements (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: I think that the hon. Lady’s interpretation is incorrect. The Government are making—[Interruption.] Let us look at the progress the Government have made. We have agreed an implementation period. Led by the Prime Minister, we secured agreement in December on EU citizens, and we are now in the phase of talking about the exciting future relationship with the European Union. I am...

Exiting the European Union: International Business Community (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: The ministerial team undertakes regular engagements with the international business community, both in the UK and abroad. In addition to regular visits to Brussels the ministerial team has undertaken 27 trips across EU member states this year. That is supported by business engagement conducted by our embassies.

Exiting the European Union: International Business Community (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: The UK has been an active member of the North sea’s energy co-operation initiative since 2010. The aim is to explore the most cost-effective way of developing offshore grid infrastructure to exploit the considerable renewable energy resources in the North and Irish seas. The UK brings significant experience and expertise to this co-operation. Working together with other countries...

Exiting the European Union: International Business Community (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: Considerable amounts of data have been released recently showing an increase in confidence in various sectors, whether it is retail, services, manufacturing or construction. We have to build on that, which is why the Government are committed to reducing barriers to trade to enable our businesses, our exporters, our manufacturers and our service sector to thrive outside the European Union.

Exiting the European Union: International Business Community (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: I was delighted to visit the ports of Immingham and Grimsby at my hon. Friend’s invitation. I was very impressed by the energy estuary, which is located there, and by the wealth of experience and output. It is the energy powerhouse for our nation.

Exiting the European Union: International Business Community (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: Well, let us look at the facts. As I said, CBI data shows an increase in output generally, the OECD revised its forecasts upwards for this year and next, and there is record low unemployment throughout the country. Those are signs of an economy that is confident and optimistic about the future, not one such as the hon. Gentleman describes.

Exiting the European Union: International Business Community (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: The Under-Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, my hon. Friend the Member for Wycombe (Mr Baker), was pleased to meet the National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations yesterday. He is keen to keep engaging with the sector. We have been absolutely clear that when we leave the EU, we will leave the common fisheries policy. Indeed, from 2020 we will be negotiating as an...
