European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (22 Oct 2019)

Jonathan Djanogly: ...totally supportive of pushing on, as for me, the important thing is the deal, not a date pulled out of the ether—originally by President Macron, by the way. Parliament has been good at stopping Brexit proposals but bad at providing Brexit solutions. There are many arguments for delay, and I could be among the first to provide a list of issues with I have the terms of the deal, which is...

European Council (11 Apr 2019)

Jonathan Djanogly: May I thank the Prime Minister for going out to Brussels, standing up in the national interest and coming back with an extension that means we can avoid the car crash and disaster of a hard Brexit? I commend her for opening negotiations with the Opposition. Will those negotiations have a timetable or structure? Will we know what the process will be when we come back after Easter? I think that...

Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Feb 2019)

Jonathan Djanogly: ...about the ongoing delays in bringing forward the meaningful vote, which I will support, with all its damaging delay implications for business. Let me be clear: I have no interest in delaying Brexit day, but nothing could be worse than leaving without a deal. I was saddened to see the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition failing to engage immediately after heavily losing the...

EU Trade Agreements: Replication (13 Feb 2019)

Jonathan Djanogly: Is it not necessary for us to take lessons from the fact that we have failed to land a pre-Brexit trade deal with Japan or with most of the other 70 countries with which the EU enjoys FTAs, such as that actually we would be better off being in a customs union or having some close customs arrangement with the EU, backed up by the firepower of 510 million consumers rather than 65 million?

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [5th Allotted Day] (9 Jan 2019)

Jonathan Djanogly: If the referendum were rerun today, everything that I have seen over the last two years—not least as a member of the Brexit Select Committee—would still lead me to vote to stay within the European Union. Having said that, I do respect the result of the referendum as a valid expression of the will of the people, but to me this means leaving the EU in a way that secures the best economic...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [5th Allotted Day] (9 Jan 2019)

Jonathan Djanogly: optimum position, but no one was ever going to get everything they wanted. That is not to say that I do not share some of the criticisms of the deal, including many that can be found in the Brexit Committee’s report on the deal. For instance, despite assurances from two Secretaries of State, the financial settlement has not been included in the withdrawal agreement as being wholly or...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [5th Allotted Day] (9 Jan 2019)

Jonathan Djanogly: ..., and assuming that the Opposition’s no-confidence motion fails, I hope that we shall then start to find a new tone of cross-party working. We shall need a degree more honesty in how we describe Brexit issues, where in reality no one is going to win—not us and not the EU. We have the Labour Front Bench changing its position; we have the Brexiteers shouting, “Sell-out”, at every...

Offensive Weapons Bill: Report on the use of air weapons (28 Nov 2018)

Jonathan Djanogly: I just want to put it on the record that I support shooting and I supported getting rid of this clause, and I do not support Brexit.

Leaving the EU: Legal Services (21 Nov 2018)

Jonathan Djanogly: I beg to move, That this House has considered the provision of legal services after the UK leaves the EU. I am pleased to have secured this timely Brexit debate on the provision of legal services. This is a key moment for our country’s wellbeing and direction, and the implication for the provision of legal services is significant. I introduce myself as a non-practising solicitor and as...

Leaving the EU: Legal Services (21 Nov 2018)

Jonathan Djanogly: ...foreign law firms with offices in the UK, from more than 40 jurisdictions. The UK legal services sector is forecast to produce turnover of £30.82 billion and net exports of £4.25 billion by 2025. Brexit will be the largest ever change to the UK’s legal framework and it represents both opportunities and risks for the legal sector. The impact of Brexit on lawyers, law firms and legal...

Leaving the EU: Legal Services (21 Nov 2018)

Jonathan Djanogly: Yes, and the hon. Lady is going to hear me explain how the post-Brexit situation that I want to see is as close to that as possible.

Leaving the EU: Legal Services (21 Nov 2018)

Jonathan Djanogly: ...held sessions in Parliament to hear oral evidence from interested parties, including law firms and chambers, individual practitioners and other stakeholders. We sought evidence on the impact of Brexit on legal practices, the workforce, business structures and client bases. We explored how lawyers currently practise across borders, looking at everything from rules on immigration and...

Leaving the EU: Legal Services (21 Nov 2018)

Jonathan Djanogly: ...and courts, and because we have European expertise here in London. We do not want to lose that. It is very important that a labour mobility framework that guarantees those abilities post Brexit is put in place. The legal services sector requires legal certainty throughout the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union. Law firms and their clients are already, sadly, beginning to implement...

Leaving the EU: Legal Services (21 Nov 2018)

Jonathan Djanogly: her Department is preparing itself and the legal services sector for a no-deal scenario. It is fair to say that services, including legal services, have not been given the same attention in the Brexit process as manufactured goods have. The sector wants a bespoke agreement that comprehensively covers legal services and is based on mutual market access, mutual recognition of regulatory...

Leaving the Eu: Meaningful Vote (22 Oct 2018)

Jonathan Djanogly: Once the Brexit deal has been secured, how long will it be before we move on to the meaningful vote, keeping in mind that Select Committees, for instance, will want to look at the terms of the deal in order to advise other hon. Members?

EU Customs Union and Draft Withdrawal Agreement: Cost (22 Oct 2018)

Jonathan Djanogly: ...bloc of 500 million people that has delivered wealth through some 40 FTAs with some 70 countries—agreements that the Government have already said they wish to adopt if we are able to, post Brexit?

Trade Bill: Report on proposed free trade agreement (17 Jul 2018)

Jonathan Djanogly: ...that 10 of the UK’s top 50 export markets are served by these EU FTAs, accounting for 35% of UK trade. I can therefore understand why the Government are keen for the UK to adopt these FTAs post Brexit, or “roll them over” in the terminology used by Ministers. In addition, I understand the practicalities of the situation: the Government have limited negotiating capacity and the idea...

Trade Bill: Report on proposed free trade agreement (17 Jul 2018)

Jonathan Djanogly: ...need to work in sync. All hon. Members from both sides of the House have been involved in this, and I thank those who have supported my amendments. The outcome has not been a victory for any Brexit faction; it has been Parliament that has won this debate in upholding its right to review the actions of the Executive. Having said that, I would point out that more than 40 Government...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Jonathan Djanogly: .... Amendment 73 and new clause 36 certainly fall into that category. I think that they have been tabled by those who wish to create such difficulties and red lines that we are forced into a hard Brexit, ostensibly by default but secretly by design. They will not have my support tonight. I want to address the claims of those who say that we do not want the FCA, or indeed a customs union,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Jonathan Djanogly: ...learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) and various other hon. Members have made the same point. For all those reasons, and despite all the confusion, the lack of policy and the Brexiteer antics, I have decided to back the Prime Minister in her June EU meetings, and I will vote with the Government on these amendments.
