The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (4 Sep 2019)

Roger Gale: Much has been made about provision for EU nationals resident in the United Kingdom post Brexit. Much less comfort has been offered to those 1.5 million United Kingdom nationals resident throughout the rest of the European Union. Is the Prime Minister in a position to confirm not on a piecemeal, but on a pan-European basis that all pensions will be paid in full, that exportable benefits will...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: 1st Allotted Day (4 Dec 2018)

Roger Gale: ...we look at all the alternatives—I tried to goad my right hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) into offering one this evening and got nothing—such as the hard Brexit and if we have to rule out, as I do, a return to no Brexit, we are left with the withdrawal agreement. I believe my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister was absolutely correct in saying it...

Eu: Future Relationship White Paper (12 Jul 2018)

Roger Gale: the common rulebook proposals that would frustrate the ambition of our right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to improve and enhance animal welfare post Brexit?

Leaving the EU: Implications for Scotland — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Roger Gale: Order. I would be grateful if the Front-Bench spokesperson would stick to the subject in hand, which is Brexit and Scotland.

Airports National Policy Statement — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Jun 2018)

Roger Gale: For the sake of argument, I will accept the point my hon. Friend is making, but it is safe to say that my argument is that I am concerned about UK Ltd and post-Brexit freight. As a country, we will have to develop markets in the middle east, Asia, the far east, Africa and South America if we are going to survive in a post-Brexit modern economy. We will have to have air freight capacity to...

Airports National Policy Statement (5 Jun 2018)

Roger Gale: ...that it will take some years for there to be wheels on tarmac and a new runway at Heathrow. In the interim, we have to make the best use of existing runway capacity, and, in that context, and post-Brexit, I hope the Government will look favourably on maximising the use of available existing runways in Kent.

Council of Europe — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (18 Apr 2018)

Roger Gale: ...We shall emerge from this process stronger, better organised, leaner and possibly hungrier, but able to play our part in the developing world. The point has been made but I will make it again: post-Brexit, the Parliamentary Assembly and the Ministerial Committee will be the voice of Britain in wider Europe. It is an important platform now; it will become a much more important platform in...

State Pensions: Uk Expatriates (20 Apr 2017)

Roger Gale: the UK, the extra costs in health and social care would outweigh a good proportion of the ‘saving’ of not paying us the increases. There is uncertainty at the moment on the status after Brexit of expat pensioners living in the EU, and their future right to pension increases…I can’t speak for anyone else, but personally I would not ask for any back payment of the increases I have...

State Pensions: Uk Expatriates (20 Apr 2017)

Roger Gale: another anomaly: any returnee, including those visiting the UK for a couple of weeks to see family on holiday, is entitled to claim their full uprated pension for that period. Of course, cometh Brexit, cometh another issue that will have to be addressed. The 492,000 British pensioners living in the 27 European Union member states and EFTA countries are protected by the social security...

Pensions Uprating (Uk Pensioners Living Overseas) (11 May 2016)

Roger Gale: .... They will come home, because they will not have anywhere else to go. I suspect that the trickle of people doing so will turn into a torrent if we leave the European Union. It is no good the Brexit people saying we will negotiate unilateral agreements. With 27 countries? Okay, it may be mainly France and Spain, but we would also have to consider Italy, Greece and some of the other 26...
