Exiting the European Union: The progress of the UK’s negotiations on EU withdrawal.
Witnesses: Suella Braverman MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Department for Exiting the EU Robin Walker MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Department for Exiting the EU
Procedure: Exiting the European Union: scrutiny of delegated legislation.
Witnesses: Suella Braverman MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Department for Exiting the European Union Mr Robin Walker MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Department for Exiting the European Union
Suella Braverman: The Government is undertaking a wide range of analysis that contributes to our exit negotiations with the EU. It is not standard practice to provide a running commentary on continuing, internal analysis. Ministers have a specific responsibility, which Parliament has endorsed, not to release information that could reveal our negotiating position.
Suella Braverman: As set out in our response to Question 134796, it remains the Government’s position that when we bring forward the vote on the final deal, we will ensure that Parliament is presented with the appropriate analysis on which to make an informed decision. This will be the right time for the Government to present its work.
Suella Braverman: My department has not introduced any regulations as a result of EU legislation. We do not expect to make any regulations as a result of EU legislation in 2018 and 2019, however, this will be dependent on negotiations.
Suella Braverman: The Secretary of State undertook a visit to Northern Ireland on 23 April to meet some of the key stakeholders involved in the process of our EU exit. He stayed overnight in Northern Ireland and as part of his visit spent some time at the border with Peter Sheridan, the Chief Executive of Co-operation Ireland.
Suella Braverman: As an EU national married to a UK citizen, if she has been here for the requisite number of years before the implementation period, her rights will be broadly the same as they are now. We want to ensure that she will have the same abilities and rights as she is able to enjoy today.
Suella Braverman: No.
Suella Braverman: As we design our independent trade policy, we have the chance to explore many options all around the world. Asia-Pacific is a region of great economic importance for the UK, and the Department for International Trade is closely following the progress of the comprehensive and progressive Trans-Pacific partnership.
Suella Braverman: The leak of any Government information or material is not acceptable and the Government takes such incidents very seriously. It has been the policy of successive Governments not to comment on security matters other than in exceptional circumstances when it is in the public interest to do so.
Suella Braverman: I disagree. The Hailsham amendment would set a dangerous constitutional precedent that would limit the Government’s prerogative in the act of international treaty negotiation. That would reduce the flexibility necessary for a successful negotiation, which is essential for the Government if we are to get the best deal possible.
Suella Braverman: Between 1 January and 31 March 2018 the Secretary of State met Chris Jones, Chief Scientific Adviser at DExEU, four times. It should be noted that this is a dual role combined with his position as the Director of Justice, Security and Migration.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Suella Braverman: My Department continues to work closely with the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, and with other Departments across Government, to ensure that local government is prepared for the potential effects of EU exit. This work includes assessing any funding issues for local government.
