Chair of the European Union Committee - Membership Motion (9 Sep 2019)

Lord Hope of Craighead: ...particularly keen to stress—I am sure he would like me to mention this—that leaving the EU ought not to mean that his committee should cease to exist. That was his response to the challenges of Brexit, along with all the others mentioned. The House owes much to his initiative and dedication. His voice is always a pleasure to listen to and his presence always commands attention. There...

Priorities for the Government - Statement (25 Jul 2019)

Lord Hope of Craighead: ...Prime Minister will take time very early on to acquaint himself with the real feelings that there are in those places that their position is not being fully respected in the plans being made for Brexit. It would be greatly appreciated if he could visit those parts of our country very soon to reassure them on that point.

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (25 Mar 2019)

Lord Hope of Craighead: ...without a long delay. The EU has made it quite clear that it is not open for quick negotiation any more. The alternative would be to have what I think the Prime Minister referred to today as a slow Brexit, which would result in our having to hold elections for the European Parliament. I think the public would find that very difficult to accept, in view of the result of the referendum....

Further Developments in Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (11 Mar 2019)

Lord Hope of Craighead: ...we have the meaningful vote. It is likely, from what we have been told, that the deal will be rejected. That means that the following day there will be a vote on whether there should be a no-deal Brexit, and we expect that the vote will overwhelmingly reject the idea of that kind of Brexit. That brings us to Thursday, with a vote on a Motion that Brexit day should be delayed. I am very...

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

Lord Hope of Craighead: ...there are only five or 10 minutes to landing. I think there is more than a grain of truth in that part of Mr Tusk’s carefully planned outburst, born of frustration, about, “those who promoted Brexit without even a sketch of a plan how to carry it out safely”, having something to answer for. As I did in this holding pattern, I feel a sense of increasing frustration, especially at the...

Services of Lawyers and Lawyer’s Practice (Revocation etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (15 Jan 2019)

Lord Hope of Craighead: I do not want to cause any difficulty, but why does paragraph 1(2) refer to the transitional period? There will not be a transitional period if there is a hard Brexit and no deal.

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (9 Jan 2019)

Lord Hope of Craighead: ...EU negotiators, is for the future. Back to the people? Of course, if a second referendum were to reverse the vote, it would open the door to a decision by Parliament not to leave after all—to no Brexit. But we would be deluding ourselves if we thought that this would settle the matter for ever. The last campaign was unpleasant enough. “Project Fear” and all the other slogans would...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (1st Day) (5 Dec 2018)

Lord Hope of Craighead: ...there is the option of taking it back to the people. Of course, if a second referendum were to reverse the vote, it would open the door to a declaration by Parliament not to leave at all: to no Brexit. For me, as a remainer, this of course has some attraction, but I think we would be deluding ourselves if we thought this would settle the matter for ever. The last campaign was unpleasant...

Brexit: Dispute Resolution and Enforcement (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (17 Oct 2018)

Lord Hope of Craighead: .... It is said that the UK and the EU have agreed distinct provisions in the withdrawal agreement, but it does not say anything about what has not yet been agreed. Surely, now that we are so close to Brexit, we need to be told where the discussions are going, where the areas of agreement are and what is yet to be agreed. It seems inevitable that some aspects of our future relationship in...

Brexit: Preparations and Negotiations - Motion to Take Note (23 Jul 2018)

Lord Hope of Craighead: ...will not go away so long as we continue to seek a deal along the lines that the paper sets out: dispute resolution and, in particular, our relationship with the European Court of Justice after Brexit. On 12 July, the noble Lord, Lord Callanan, repeated a Statement about the White Paper, and the noble Lord, Lord Bridges—who I am glad to see in his place—congratulated the Minister and...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (5th Day) (2 May 2018)

Lord Hope of Craighead: ...of course about the redistribution of EU law and the frameworks that are being set up, particularly with reference to the internal market that is to be designed within the United Kingdom after Brexit. One has to understand that, while we are dealing with a new situation, nevertheless the Scottish Government’s position is that what is being discussed affects fundamentally the legislative...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued) (14 Mar 2018)

Lord Hope of Craighead: ...an Act of Parliament under regulations made under these clauses. Of course, one can look back to an existing Act, which could be amended by the exercise of this power, for a purpose related to the Brexit arrangements. If one takes an existing Act—one can visualise all sorts of situations when that might arise—it would seem right that the same procedure should apply if the amendment is...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (26 Feb 2018)

Lord Hope of Craighead: ...the same way as the Convention on Human Rights. This charter will have to be largely rewritten if we introduce it into our law, but it is not designed for the kind of situation we are facing after Brexit. It is designed for use within the Union and to be interpreted by the CJEU. I simply do not understand how the system is intended to work if it were brought into our law in the way the...

Brexit: Justice for Families, Individuals and Businesses (EU Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (20 Dec 2017)

Lord Hope of Craighead: ...certainty we need. We need to maintain the same reciprocity, attention to detail and standards of precision that operate across the EU. As Janys Scott says, family law deserves serious attention if Brexit is not to result in confusion and expense for families who find themselves stretched between one or other of the jurisdictions in the UK and other European states when the misfortune of...

Brexit: Agriculture and Farm Animal Welfare (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (17 Oct 2017)

Lord Hope of Craighead: ...is supplied by seasonal workers from the EU. Not nearly enough people live locally who are available or willing to do this work. Without certainty that this workforce will still be available after Brexit, these enterprises may have to close down and the industry disappear. So the effect of the vote to leave has been to create an increasing sense of uncertainty as we move closer to exit...
