Steel Industry — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (11 May 2016)

Kevin Brennan: .... 966.] is not occurring in manufacturing. We know that the plight of UK steel, drowning under the flood of Chinese steel, has contributed to that, as well—obviously—as the uncertainty over the Brexit referendum and so on and the impact that is having on our industries. We are seeing the impact in things such as the closure—the unnecessary closure—of the Redcar steel plant. Basic...

Leaving the EU: UK Tourism (12 Oct 2016)

Kevin Brennan: ...(Mrs Murray) and for Taunton Deane (Rebecca Pow), and by the SNP spokesman, the hon. Member for East Dunbartonshire (John Nicolson). It says something about the significant ramifications of Brexit that we are debating its impact on tourism. One would not normally think a constitutional referendum would lead to us debating the future of the UK tourism industry, so it is quite a surprise...

Leaving the EU: UK Tourism (12 Oct 2016)

Kevin Brennan: ...man, and it is a wonderful destination. My question is this: is the new weak pound—trading at parity with the euro in recent days, as I said—now the Government’s economic policy? Following Brexit, are the Conservatives now the party of devaluation? Surely not, because I thought stable, sound money and a strong, stable pound, with the discipline that brings to productivity, was one of...

Leaving the EU: UK Tourism (12 Oct 2016)

Kevin Brennan: ...tourism industry, but it is equally important that we do not suggest that we do not welcome diversity in our tourism industry in this country. One problem is that some of the Government’s post-Brexit messaging is potentially damaging to Britain’s blue chip brand. At the Conservative party conference we saw the Home Secretary seriously announce, at least in the headlines, a misguided...

Public Bill Committee: Digital Economy Bill: Offences: infringing copyright and making available right (25 Oct 2016)

Kevin Brennan: .... We have an incredibly successful creative industry sector in the UK; it is one of the most successful in the world. It is growing at almost twice the rate of the wider UK economy, and in a post-Brexit Britain—if that is, in my view, the unfortunate direction that we are taking as a country—the creative industries are obviously going to be even more vital and will make a huge...

Nissan: Sunderland: Cultural Property (Armed Conflicts) Bill [Lords] (31 Oct 2016)

Kevin Brennan: ...ugly tone of political discourse in recent times, the Bill is a welcome reminder of internationalist values and shared civilisation and culture. We have had an increase in attacks since the Brexit vote. In that context, the Bill recognises the importance of preserving our collective past and cultures and the fact that that is now more important than ever, whatever someone’s heritage and...

Public Bill Committee: Digital Economy Bill: Storage of uploaded works (1 Nov 2016)

Kevin Brennan: ...that seeks to address many of these points. That is a welcome development, and the Minister will probably to refer to it in his response. After the recent referendum put us on the path towards Brexit, many issues have been raised in relation to these proposals. It is highly conceivable that we will be Brexiting at the same time as Europe begins to adopt copyright rules for a digital age. I...

Business of the House (26 Jan 2017)

Kevin Brennan: Will the Leader of the House give us an absolute guarantee that the unelected House of Lords will not have more time to debate the Brexit article 50 Bill than the elected House of Commons?

Informal European Council (6 Feb 2017)

Kevin Brennan: My constituents Mr and Mrs Regan came to see me on Saturday about their son, who has a Greek wife and who lives and works in the middle east. After Brexit, they plan to come and live in the UK. Will their daughter-in-law have to apply for a settlement visa? I said I could not answer that question and that I would ask someone who could, so could the Prime Minister answer it for me?

Intellectual Property: British Economy — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (28 Feb 2017)

Kevin Brennan: ...be upsetting too many people, unless they act quickly; and that will damage our creative industries significantly. They are a serious, significant export earner. In this deeply regrettable era of Brexit, when we are trying to do individual trade deals around the world, it would be short-sighted for us to damage one of our most significant export earners. Towards the end of the Lords debate...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (21 Jun 2017)

Kevin Brennan: How is the interim Prime Minister going to convince the country that she can negotiate a successful Brexit with 27 other EU countries within the time limit, when she has not even been able to negotiate a deal with 10 Democratic Unionist Members of this House in the time between the election and the Queen’s Speech?

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Kevin Brennan: ...the Data Protection Bill, we will ensure that it is not too little, too late. So far, the Government have talked the talk about their commitment to unhindered, uninterrupted data flows post-Brexit, but the Data Protection Bill does not really set out fully how they plan to deliver on that promise. Even if the Bill succeeds in bringing UK law into line with the EU’s data protection...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Kevin Brennan: ...Jane Austen was our greatest living author—I will give him credit for that. I give the Minister and the Government credit for taking up our policy of having a transitional period with regard to Brexit to give themselves a little more time. The price of getting data protection wrong would obviously be enormous, because so many companies rely on transmitting data across the single market....

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Kevin Brennan: ..., but now I know he will be going away and doing research on my hon. Friend. We also had a contribution from the hon. Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse), who pointed out the importance of a good Brexit deal and the damage that uncertainty is causing to business. Finally, we heard from the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon), a very popular Member of this House, who was still able to...

TV Licence Fee — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (20 Nov 2017)

Kevin Brennan: ...on his estate. He said that to abolish the BBC would be an act of “cultural vandalism”. I completely endorse that phrase and those remarks. He said there had been a tendency towards “despite Brexit” coverage on the BBC around the time of the referendum, but there was a time when one could not turn on the BBC without Nigel Farage’s visage appearing at every turn. It is a debatable...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Arts (7 Feb 2018)

Kevin Brennan: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, with reference to the second report of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, The potential impact of Brexit on the creative industries, tourism and the digital single market, published on 25 January 2018, HC 365, if he will publish a timetable outlining the steps that will need to be taken to reach trade...

Local Museums — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (7 Mar 2018)

Kevin Brennan: ...direct effect on funding and resourcing in devolved policy areas and local authorities. On all three of these issues—local council cuts, lottery funding reductions and EU funding reductions post-Brexit—the Government need to take responsibility and the actions necessary to ensure our proud cultural heritage continues to be available to the widest possible audience. I do not want to be...

European Council (26 Mar 2018)

Kevin Brennan: ...Dublin, Amsterdam or Luxembourg, and will do so before the implementation period that the Prime Minister talked about. Is this what the right hon. Member for Wokingham (John Redwood) meant by the Brexit bonus, and what is the Prime Minister going to do about it?

Leaving the EU: Tourism and the Creative Industries — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (17 Apr 2018)

Kevin Brennan: ...have to come back after the vote. I congratulate the hon. Member for Edinburgh West (Christine Jardine) on securing today’s debate. She rightly pointed out the huge workforce challenges that Brexit presents to the creative industries and tourism and she made important points about musicians and the need for a single EU work permit. I also congratulate the right hon. Member for Wantage...
