Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (15 Mar 2018)

David Davis: ...), said earlier, that is one of the great prizes that will come out of our departure from the Union. Indeed, I am rather sorry that the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) did not raise the issue of a customs union explicitly. I know that he has difficulties with his own leadership on these matters, so I thought I should find a leader of whom he did...

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Dec 2017)

David Davis: ...it will be much easier to sort out issues around any border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.” I have suddenly realised that the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) has also said the same thing: “To be fair to David Davis, he is right on issues like Northern Ireland. There is only so far you can get before you move to the next phase.”

Leaving the Eu: Parliamentary Vote (26 Oct 2017)

David Davis: ...factually as is possible. What I was describing were items of fact, not promises. His own Front-Bench colleague, my opposite number, the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), said yesterday: “I don’t doubt assurances which are given at the Dispatch Box.” I think that is the proper approach to this.

Leaving the Eu: Parliamentary Vote (26 Oct 2017)

David Davis: ...is aiming for is October next year as the outcome for the draft agreement. If we hit that, the likely timetable, as I think I said to the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), would be for the European Parliament to address that in December, January or even later, and the undertaking I gave was that we will come to this House before then.

EU Exit Negotiations (17 Oct 2017)

David Davis: ...the implementation phase to be decided early for it to be beneficial to a large number of companies. In his response to the statement, the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) pointed out that some companies will have to make decisions at the end of this year or in the first quarter of next year so that they are able to carry out any necessary changes,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

David Davis: ...listen to those who offer improvements to the Bill in the spirit of preparing our statute book for withdrawal from the European Union. The right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) likes to remind me of my past incarnation as a Back Benchers’ champion and my dedication to holding the Government to account. I have not changed my views one jot. Let me be...

Exiting the European Union: Membership of the European Economic Area (7 Sep 2017)

David Davis: ..., I will read a small part of a LabourList article—I read LabourList all the time, of course—by the hon. Member for Aberavon (Stephen Kinnock), who opened this question. He said: “On Sunday Keir Starmer used an article in The Observer to call time on the ambiguity that had come to define Labour’s approach to Brexit since the referendum”— the ambiguity, right? He said, “It...

Exiting the European Union: Government Negotiations (7 Sep 2017)

David Davis: ...will want to ensure there is a single transition, not two different transitions in and out of the transition period. That is why, as the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) quoted me as saying, I said we want the transition arrangement to be as close as possible to the current circumstance. It will be remembered, too, that when I responded to the right...

Brexit and Foreign Affairs (26 Jun 2017)

David Davis: ...European Communities Act 1972 and to transfer existing European Union law into UK law. To answer a question that my opposite number, the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), has raised, these rights and freedoms will be brought into UK law without qualification, without limitation and without any sunset clauses. Any material changes will be dealt with...

Legislating for Uk Withdrawal from the EU (30 Mar 2017)

David Davis: At the end of my statement, I said that I hoped the House would come together in making this task happen. I reiterate that point to the hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), my opposite number. He says that no change should be made to rights through delegated legislation, but I would have thought that that almost goes without saying. [Hon. Members: “Then say...

Article 50 (24 Jan 2017)

David Davis: ...would undermine our negotiating strategy. Let me give the right hon. Gentleman one example. A couple of weeks ago, my opponent, as it were, the hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), said on Channel 4, “What we want to know is whether the Government will pay for access to the single market and how much they’ll pay.” If anything would undermine the...

New Partnership with the EU (17 Jan 2017)

David Davis: ...approach. Rather than a 52/48 approach, it is an approach that encompasses everybody’s interests. I hope that we have done that today. The hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) is a very talented man, and his questions were as forensic as we would expect. He asked about membership of the single market, so we answered that. We laid out the claims on the...

The Government's Plan for Brexit (7 Dec 2016)

David Davis: ...to invoke Article 50 by 31 March 2017.” Before I speak to the amendment, let me make a few factual remarks to the Labour spokesman, the hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer). He ended by saying that there is no mandate for hard Brexit. To be honest, I do not know what hard Brexit means. The mandate was to leave the European Union. We should keep that in...

Article 50 (7 Nov 2016)

David Davis: As we are speaking of cerebral issues, Mr Speaker, I shall return to the hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer). I read in the Financial Times that he recently attended a private event in Parliament at which he was hailed as “the man who’ll make sure we stay in the EU”. Apparently he winced at that because he “does not want expectations to get out of...

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

David Davis: ...important. The negotiation will be complex and difficult, and we should do nothing to jeopardise it. As I said in my statement on Monday— the hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) quoted me several times—the sovereignty of Parliament and its restoration is at the very heart of why the UK is withdrawing from the European Union. For decades, the primacy of the...

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union (10 Oct 2016)

David Davis: With the mild exception of the rudeness about the legal qualifications of the hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), I agree with everything my right hon. Friend has said. The simple truth is that the attempt to block article 50 is an attempt to block the will of the British people, full stop. There will be plenty of opportunity for debate in the next two and a...

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union (10 Oct 2016)

David Davis: It is hard to have tests along the track of the negotiations; it is the outcome that matters. In response to my opposite number, the hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), I highlighted three of the four main aims that we are after. One is to regain control of our borders. Another is to get back control of our laws. The one I did not list was our aim to keep our...

Investigatory Powers Bill: Persons who may make modifications (6 Jun 2016)

David Davis: ...system. My amendments aim to improve the Bill in that regard. The Government have come up with a manuscript amendment that the former DPP, the hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), says he thinks is acceptable. Until I have taken advice I cannot make a judgment on that, but for that reason, I will not press my amendments today. But I say to Members on the...
