Council of Europe: House of Lords Members’ Contribution - Question for Short Debate (24 Jul 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: ...then cross-party between Members here, not least since working together cross-party and effectively is one of the proven qualities of your Lordships’ House in the first place. Finally, in view of Brexit, the United Kingdom should be very grateful that our membership of the Council of Europe will nevertheless continue. However, as the noble Lord, Lord Anderson, has already observed, in...

Safety of Medicines and Medical Devices - Motion to Take Note (28 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: ...interesting and well-informed maiden speech. On the approved safety of medicines and medical devices, I will comment briefly on three aspects: current risks to the United Kingdom following Brexit; necessary expedients to help contain these risks; and, to raise medical safety levels both at home and overseas, initiatives and directions that the UK should pursue in any case. Several adverse...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (19 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: ...protecting them. If that is a positive effect, there is really no downside. That is avoided through Amendment 18, which states: “It shall be the objective of Her Majesty’s Government”. Post Brexit, those words will encourage the Government to replicate what already obtains without forcing that eventuality against insurmountable difficulties if any such should happen to intervene.

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (19 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: ..., Lady Wheeler, has indicated, differs from Amendment 6 in only one respect: through its reference to the European court. It is intended as a probing amendment. It may have been implied that post Brexit we will not have recourse to the ECJ for arbitration or any other purpose. However, so far, that has not been clarified. Is my noble friend able to comment? Could it be that we might come...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (19 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: ...is for current arrangements to be retained as they are. Certainly the Government would wish that in any case—and for the successful negotiation of a new healthcare arrangement to apply post Brexit. But there are good reasons why this particular government intention should nevertheless now form part of the Bill, for its inclusion would give much comfort both to those directly affected and...

EU Withdrawal - Motion to Take Note (13 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: ...has focused instead upon a new suggestion, to which noble Lords have already referred. This seeks to combine the customs union formula with Norway-plus, for one of its elements is the soft Brexit, Norway-plus deployment of membership of the European Economic Area and another is a UK-EU customs union. Although coming forward rather late in the day, this notion is to be welcomed, for it...

Motor Vehicles (International Circulation) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Order 2019 - Motion to Approve (12 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, can my noble friend comment on a few points? First, the European Union general safety regulations are expected shortly, before the end of March. Can she reassure noble Lords that post Brexit these standards will be observed and matched by the United Kingdom? Secondly, regarding reciprocal arrangements affecting uninsured drivers after EU withdrawal—and not least if there should be...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Second Reading (5 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: ...living abroad and foreign citizens living here. As my noble friend Lord O’Shaughnessy explained, it is sensible that the Secretary of State should be given wide powers. Since any particular Brexit outcome is as yet unknown, that is the best way to protect international healthcare arrangements in a Bill such as this. Thereafter, no doubt, the negative statutory instrument procedure might...

Plastic: Environmental Threat and Recycling - Motion to Take Note (19 Dec 2018)

the Earl of Dundee: ...the next few years, how does the United Kingdom intend further to assist international plastics control and improve recycling? And can she provide proper evidence and reassurance to us that, post Brexit with these matters, we will, therefore, give efficient guidance and leadership in Europe and beyond?

Higher Education - Motion to Take Note (19 Jul 2018)

the Earl of Dundee: ...which we must secure within current EU negotiations. Secondly, there are certain internal adjustments of our own that we should make. Thirdly, in exporting UK higher education, and despite Brexit, we must now also aim to give a strong lead in Europe and beyond. As we know, within Europe the Government have already guaranteed UK participation in Erasmus and Horizon 2020 for the next three...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (4th Day) (30 Apr 2018)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, we discussed two key aspects of protecting children’ rights post Brexit in Committee. The first is the need to guarantee that our present level of cross-border co-operation should not diminish. Here, my noble friend gave me an assurance, for which I am grateful, that the United Kingdom’s current security arrangements in Europe will continue; and, in particular, through the...

Brexit: Gibraltar - Question for Short Debate (21 Mar 2017)

the Earl of Dundee: ...a new approach and structure, which we should now start to devise. On sovereignty, the key aspect is the preference of the Gibraltarian people. They are fiercely loyal to the United Kingdom. Post Brexit that is still the position, although, as has already been said, 96% supported the case for the UK to remain in the EU. Correctly, the report endorses the UK Government’s view. This is to...
