Wales: Regional Development Funding (7 May 2019)

Ian Lucas: ...Graham. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Aberavon (Stephen Kinnock) on securing the debate. He has made such a superb contribution through the all-party parliamentary group for post-Brexit funding for nations, regions and local areas. I also welcome the Minister to his post. I want to speak briefly about regional development across north Wales. At the time of the 2015 general...

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

Ian Lucas: ...I did, however, vote with him to trigger article 50 two years ago. In my speech during that debate, I told the Prime Minister that she needed to reach out across the Chamber to create consensus on Brexit. I also told colleagues in the Labour party that they also needed to reach out to find consensus on Brexit. Since that day, the Prime Minister has achieved no consensus at all, which is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: F-35 Contracts (27 Feb 2019)

Ian Lucas: Will the Minister meet with aerospace businesses such as Tritech, Magellan and Solvay in Wrexham to ensure that in the event of a no-deal Brexit we maximise spend within the UK to benefit our businesses?

Furniture Manufacturers (23 Jan 2019)

Ian Lucas: To return to Brexit momentarily, I visited the Silverlining furniture company in Wrexham—a very high-quality business that exports high-spec furniture abroad—and one point it made was that skilled labour from all across Europe works for it at a very high level. We have to focus not only on materials, but on people.

Shared Prosperity Fund: Wales (14 Nov 2018)

Ian Lucas: ...for Montgomeryshire (Glyn Davies), will look after him just as well as he has looked after the Minister’s many predecessors. One of the extraordinary aspects of the Government’s approach to Brexit is their failure to address some of the fundamental reasons for the leave vote before the act of leaving. Obviously there is a lot happening as we speak on that issue, but on major areas of...

Shared Prosperity Fund: Wales (14 Nov 2018)

Ian Lucas: ...for north-east Wales generally. Neath Port Talbot Council received over £89 million between 2007 and 2014, while Flintshire received £3 million. Incredibly, Wrexham received only £446,000. After Brexit, we will need a new system of funding and a fair allocation across Wales. As the hon. Member for Aberconwy (Guto Bebb) said, we have shown the way in north Wales: from the bottom up,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: Aerospace Sector (24 Oct 2018)

Ian Lucas: First, I welcome the Minister to her post. In June, Airbus said that a no deal Brexit would severely undermine “UK efforts to keep a competitive and innovative aerospace industry.” It concluded that it would be “catastrophic” to have a UK Brexit. Does the Minister agree?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (16 Oct 2018)

Ian Lucas: Wrexham a few weeks ago, and last Wednesday announced the redundancies of 300 skilled workers who had spent the last 10 years building it up. The jobs are being moved to India. In the context of Brexit, does the Secretary of State agree that we need to reconsider the takeover laws that apply in the United Kingdom, so that this type of predatory behaviour can end?

Business of the House (7 Jun 2018)

Ian Lucas: Cabinet Office officials have been conducting surveys in Wrexham about Brexit and other issues. My named day question to the Cabinet Office on the matter—on the reason for these surveys—remains unanswered, despite being lodged on 16 May. Would the Leader of the House have a word with the Cabinet Office to answer my question and find out why the Conservative party are so interested in my...

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Ian Lucas: ...from this Chamber on public sector pay. One great advantage of general elections is that the voters tell us what they want to talk about. The Prime Minister may have wanted to have an election on Brexit, but on the doorstep public sector pay was a huge issue in my constituency, and, I suspect, in constituencies up and down the country. The strong message from the campaign was that the...

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Ian Lucas: Will the Home Secretary clarify whether it is her intention that after Brexit a different set of rules will apply to EU nationals and nationals from outside the EU who are visiting the United Kingdom?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Ian Lucas: ...than we have shown today. I know that this is difficult for many of my dear colleagues, but I am talking about the Labour party—the party I love—and its future here. We need to accept that Brexit is going to happen and work to forge the best possible way forward for our Labour party and the people we represent in the post-Brexit world. Please, let us put behind us the division—both...

Exiting the Eu: Businesses in Wales (14 Dec 2016)

Ian Lucas: I am grateful to the Minister for showing his usual courtesy in giving way a great deal. Will he give me an example of one opportunity arising from Brexit that the university sector has told him about?

Exiting the Eu: Businesses in Wales (14 Dec 2016)

Ian Lucas: ...will be. If they do not, they may begin to reflect on whether the business environment in this country will be as effective, successful and supportive for them in the future. My objective for post-Brexit Britain and Wales is for the UK to be as close as possible to membership of the single market while retaining the right to devise and implement immigration policy. If I were negotiating,...

Exiting the Eu: Businesses in Wales (14 Dec 2016)

Ian Lucas: ...the new systems will look like, and we need engagement from the Government. That is not just about listening but about beginning to tell business what its responsibilities will be and what post-Brexit Wales will look like. That responsibility rests firmly with the Government, who have brought the situation about, and that must be made clear to our constituents. We need to have that clarity...

International Trade: EU Customs Union (3 Nov 2016)

Ian Lucas: The creative industries are some of Britain’s most competitive and successful industries, and they depend on worldwide access and negotiation with many multinational organisations.

International Trade: Commonwealth: Trade Discussions (8 Sep 2016)

Ian Lucas: ...the rest of the world, including to the European Union. What comfort can the Minister give that the important regulation that exists in the single market will continue for that company in the post-Brexit world?
