Northern Ireland Protocol: Veterinary Agreement — [Christina Rees in the Chair] (15 Dec 2021)

Claire Hanna: Does the Minister accept that the UK is a sovereign nation and that deciding—for the protection of all its businesses and particularly for the fragile area of Northern Ireland—to make sure there is no divergence between Britain and Northern Ireland and to have an SPS arrangement based on dynamic alignment would be a sovereign decision? That would be a decision of a responsible Government...

Northern Ireland Protocol: Veterinary Agreement — [Christina Rees in the Chair] (15 Dec 2021)

Claire Hanna: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Rees. I thank the hon. Member for Rochdale (Tony Lloyd) for bringing the debate and for his long-standing and genuine commitment to achieving good outcomes for Northern Ireland. I know that is a common cause for many hon. Members across the House, for which we are grateful. Divergence and potential divergence on veterinary and SPS...

Northern Ireland Protocol: Veterinary Agreement — [Christina Rees in the Chair] (15 Dec 2021)

Claire Hanna: The point is that the UK has made it very clear that it will not sign up to commit to those rules. That is fundamentally the issue—that the UK has not agreed, as a continuum, to adhere to those rules. Yes, obviously the soil has not changed over the new year, so I understand some of the frustrations, but those could be addressed by exactly the sort of veterinary arrangement that the hon....

Northern Ireland Protocol: Veterinary Agreement — [Christina Rees in the Chair] (15 Dec 2021)

Northern Ireland Protocol: Veterinary Agreement — [Christina Rees in the Chair] (15 Dec 2021)

Claire Hanna: I am happy to remind the hon. Member. It is all over Hansard and in TV clips. I think it was one Mr Boris Johnson and one Lord David Frost. I believe that at Christmas-time they told us that it was oven ready and ready to go, but it was clearly not. These are all consequences that flowed from a series of decisions. As I say, business did not want to change the status quo. Businesses outlined...

Northern Ireland Protocol: Veterinary Agreement — [Christina Rees in the Chair] (15 Dec 2021)

Claire Hanna: No, my children are not seed potato fans. As I said, we are dealing with a series of responses—the consequences of the UK’s decisions and, as I said, they are the UK’s decisions. I do not agree with them. It is very clear that people in Northern Ireland wanted something different. That is a fact. I do not want to get into—we are talking about the practical issues and I am aware that...

I am very aware of the sensitivities around it and of the...

Human Rights Legislation (14 Dec 2021)

Claire Hanna: The Lord Chancellor’s statement made a cursory reference to the devolved regions. I am not sure if he ever got round to reading all of the Good Friday agreement after he revealed at the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee that he had not read it, but the prospect of the Human Rights Act was critical in those negotiations and has proved crucial in the years since, both for victims and...
