Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (8 Nov 2022)

Peter Grant: Q Good morning to both witnesses. Professor Barnard, as we heard, this Bill sets an automatic date by which several thousand pieces of legislation will disappear off the statute book unless they are specifically left on. The number of such pieces of legislation, as we have just heard, is about 1,400 more than we thought this morning. Are you aware of any previous incident, either in the UK...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (8 Nov 2022)

Peter Grant: Professor Young, I saw you nodding. Is there anything you want to add? Do you agree with Professor Barnard?

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (8 Nov 2022)

Peter Grant: Q Thank you. I do not know whether you heard Sir Stephen Laws’s evidence immediately before you came on screen. He suggested that the concerns raised about the uncertainty that the Bill might create can be partly explained by the traditional resistance of the legal profession to change of any kind. He said it is wrong to assume that changing the law makes it less certain. Professor Young,...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (8 Nov 2022)

Peter Grant: Q Thank you. Professor Barnard, the concern about uncertainty was a significant element of your written submission to the Committee. Is there anything that you want to add?

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Examination of Witness (8 Nov 2022)

Peter Grant: Good morning, Sir Stephen. One of the things that we were told about leaving the European Union was that it would return powers to Parliament. What does this Bill do to the balance of powers between Parliament and MinistersQ ?

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Examination of Witness (8 Nov 2022)

Peter Grant: Q You said that Parliament enacted all this legislation because it had to. Is it not the case that, for every single piece of legislation that we are talking about in the Bill, a United Kingdom Government Minister was present at the time that the legislation was agreed in Europe?

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Examination of Witness (8 Nov 2022)

Peter Grant: Q You say that Parliament did not agree. Is not it the case that the European Scrutiny Committee, which existed throughout the time that we were members of the European Union, had the power to call in Ministers and put a stop on ministerial approval of European Council decisions until the Committee, and therefore Parliament, were satisfied that it was the right thing to do? Whether or not...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Examination of Witness (8 Nov 2022)

Peter Grant: Q If enacted as drafted, what difference will the Bill have on the application of EU law in Northern Ireland, in particular in relation to the Northern Ireland protocol and the Good Friday agreement?

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigration: Applications (26 Oct 2022)

Written Answers — Home Office: Visas: Families (26 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what recent assessment he has made of the adequacy of the processing time for Family Visas.

Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: Clause 20 - Financial promotion (25 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.

Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: Clause 18 - Critical third parties: designation and powers (25 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: Again, I do not oppose the clauses, but I do have a couple of questions. First, the Minister pointed out that the ultimate sanction that the regulator can take is to prevent somebody from carrying out the actions of a critical third party. However, given that it becomes a critical third party because the system would collapse without it, is that not the nuclear button that can never be used?...

Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: Clause 20 - Financial promotion (25 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: I beg to move amendment 39, in clause 20, page 31, line 37, at end insert— “(1A) Where the content of a communication for the purposes of section 21 has not in the first instance been approved by an authorised person, approval by another authorised person may only be sought the FCA’s approval for the other authorised person to do so being provided in writing.”. This amendment...

Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: Clause 20 - Financial promotion (25 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: The amendment is quite simple. I understand the reason behind the concept of the authorised person. The Financial Conduct Authority will never have the resources or capacity to authorise every single financial promotion that somebody wants to publish, so that role needs to be outsourced. My concern is that, in some of the scams that my constituents have fallen victim to, the authorised person...

Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: Clause 20 - Financial promotion (25 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: The Minister says that we all understand what financial promotions are, but do we really? Is the existing definition agile enough? One of the dodgy directors I mentioned earlier has now set himself up on TikTok as a lifestyle guru. Everybody knows he is doing this to groom people. He will say to someone, “I’ve got this brilliant investment plan that nobody else knows about. Why don’t...

Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: Clause 13 - Testing of FMI technologies or practices (25 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: Thank you, Dame Maria, for clarifying earlier that we are talking about sandboxes, not sandwich boxes. Some Members seem to have been a bit confused about that. I am intrigued by the use of the term “sandbox”. To me, a sandbox can be a road safety feature: it is literally a gravel or sand pit on a bad bend in the road to allow someone who loses control to get off the road safely....

Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: Clause 9 - Rules relating to central counterparties and central securities depositories (25 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: To clarify, if the Bill is enacted as it stands, does the Bank have the option to create a different regulatory regime for overseas parties than it has for those that are based in the UK, or is the intention that the same set of rules will apply regardless of where the organisation is based?

Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: Clause 9 - Rules relating to central counterparties and central securities depositories (25 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: Can the Minister give us an indication of whether there are existing institutions that he believes would be regarded as CCPs that are systemically important to this country? Apart from the obvious factor of the amount of business that a body does with the UK, what other factors will be taken into account when deciding whether to designate an institution in that way?

Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: Clause 9 - Rules relating to central counterparties and central securities depositories (25 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: Again, I fully understand the intention behind these clauses and I am not minded to move against them, but I am a bit concerned by some of the interplay between the clauses. I asked the Minister what factors he thought might be taken into account in determining that a CCP is actually a systemic third country CCP, rather than an unsystemic one. The Bill, on lines 39 to 42 on page 13, suggests...
