Results 1–20 of 45 for brexit speaker:Kevin Brennan

Business of the House (31 Jan 2019)

Kevin Brennan: We already know from the Prime Minister that the business on 14 February will be further votes on Brexit. May I just say to the Leader of the House that Valentine’s day is a bad day on which to organise a break-up? In the meantime, can we at least make it clear that we will rule out a no-deal Brexit?

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...

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?

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?

October EU Council (22 Oct 2018)

Kevin Brennan: .... Member for Gainsborough (Sir Edward Leigh) that, if the meaningful vote does not succeed in this House, she intends to carry on as Prime Minister until 29 March next year and deliver a no deal Brexit. Is that really her position?

Prime Minister’s Statement: European Union (Withdrawal) Acts (19 Oct 2019)

Kevin Brennan: The Secretary of State pointed out that some hon. Members have voted against a Brexit deal since the referendum, including the Prime Minister, who did so twice. Why do the Government not have the courage, therefore, to allow the same privilege to the people of this country by allowing them to make their judgment on this deal?

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Business: Grants (21 Oct 2019)

Kevin Brennan: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, if she will publish the names of the organisations that applied for a Brexit Readiness Grant; and how much was awarded to each successful applicant.

Parking (Code of Practice) Bill: Appeals against parking charges (23 Nov 2018)

Kevin Brennan: Does the hon. Gentleman suspect, as I do, that the hon. Member for Christchurch (Sir Christopher Chope) has tabled his amendments to make a point about Brexit, rather than about this Bill? We would therefore forgive him if, at this stage, he chose not to press his amendments, having made that point so well in his contribution today.

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...

Business of the House (17 Oct 2019)

Kevin Brennan: If the Leader of the House is so confident that the revised text on Brexit that he referred to earlier is such a good deal, why does he not bring forward measures to make sure that we can have a confirmatory referendum so that the public can decide whether they think it is a good deal or they are better off remaining in the European Union?

Seaborne Freight (8 Jan 2019)

Kevin Brennan: ...of State really saying to the House that the best choice for the contract was a company that cut and pasted its terms and conditions at the last minute from a fast-food company? Is his new Brexit mantra “A meal deal’s better than no deal”?

Business of the House (7 Feb 2019)

Kevin Brennan: May we have a debate on Facebook? This week we learned that the brilliant political comedian Matt Forde had his ads banned from Facebook because his show is called “Brexit through the gift shop”. Should Facebook not be more concerned with blocking the fake news and Russian bots that are undermining our democracy, rather than being a slave to an algorithm that cannot recognise a simple joke?

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....

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 quarterly update outlining the progress and future objectives of EU negotiations...

Business of the House (11 Apr 2019)

Kevin Brennan: ..., which is a region in space-time with a gravitational pull so strong that nothing can escape from it. May I suggest that the Government ask the astronomers to point their telescopes next at planet Brexit so that we can reveal that there is a means of escape by holding a confirmatory referendum?

Ford in Bridgend (10 Jun 2019)

Kevin Brennan: The Secretary of State represents the constituency next door to the plant, yet he will not rule out a no-deal Brexit. That is utterly irresponsible and provides the context, even if not the immediate cause, for why the automotive sector in this country, including at Ford in Bridgend, is on the brink, with 10,000 jobs at risk, with 50,000 more in the supply chain. When is he going to show some...

Business of the House (24 Oct 2019)

Kevin Brennan: This is a handy way of distracting from the reality that the Prime Minister has not succeeded in delivering Brexit by 31 October. Those of us who have been here longer than the Leader of the House know the fun and games, the jiggery-pokery, that he specialises in. When he does not get his election, perhaps he could then consider putting the Bill down with a proper timetable, so that we can...

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...

Progress on EU Negotiations (22 Nov 2018)

Kevin Brennan: ...be leaving the EU on March 29 next year—in fact, she repeated that today. On the other hand, she has said there is a risk—or, as many of my constituents would call it, a chance—of no Brexit. How can those two statements coexist as opinions in her mind without causing a major malfunction?

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?
