High Speed Rail (West Midlands–Crewe) Bill - Second Reading (9 Sep 2019)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...for High Speed Rail has been established. A huge amount of investment is taking place in the city of Birmingham on the strength of HS2. The West Midlands economy is fragile. The potential of Brexit and the damage it could do to our motor industry is immeasurable. Cancelling HS2 at the same time as we face these huge uncertainties would have a devastating impact on our economy. The noble...

Birmingham Commonwealth Games Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 2 (24 Jul 2019)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...uncompetitiveness, I suppose that one should acknowledge the Government’s efforts on behalf of the tourist trade in allowing the pound to collapse in the wake of their disastrous policies on Brexit. There are many factors, but the point made by my noble friend Lord Griffiths is that we know there are arguments both for and against a hotel tax. I do not seek to run away from that; my idea...

Brexit: Appointment of Joint Committee - Motion to Agree (3 Jul 2019)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ..., education and defence, and major infrastructure spending. We are told that this is all to come from the £26 billion of fiscal firepower that the Chancellor has reserved in case of a no-deal Brexit. As the Chancellor—and he still is the Chancellor and carries some authority with many of us, even if not with members of the Conservative Party—said yesterday, in the event of a...

National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Take Note (1 May 2019)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...pharmaceutical companies, says that despite that, there is concern among those companies about the impact on them when they have a number of other issues and challenges at the moment, including Brexit and the rebates associated with statutory and voluntary medicines pricing schemes. It thinks that the NICE charges still present a significant cost for small companies and asks the...

Brexit: No-deal Ferry Contracts - Private Notice Question (1 May 2019)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...department? Secondly, if this insurance deal is not to be repeated, as seems to be implied, do I take it that the Government have firmly—and will in the future—set themselves against a no-deal Brexit?

European Qualifications (Health and Social Care Professions) (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (7 Mar 2019)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: .... I do not know whether the noble Lord, Lord Deben, has studied the document issued by the US Government last week on their requirements for a trade deal, but there is a contrast between what Brexiteers told the public about how easy trade deals would be and the demands of the US Government, which this Government will have to accede to in their desperation to get a trade deal, and their...

Small Business Index - Question (18 Feb 2019)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...and say how good it is to see him back in his place. What message would the Government like to give to small traders in Swindon, who will be damaged incredibly by the Honda decision? Is this the Brexit dividend that the Government promised us?

Recognition of Professional Qualifications (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (11 Feb 2019)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...and certainty on the supporting framework governing how EEA-qualified doctors will enter the UK medical register if the UK leaves the EU on these terms—in other words, under a no-deal Brexit. We hope it will help to manage any potential disruption to the NHS medical workforce in those circumstances. However, can the Minister confirm—I think he did so by implication in his opening...

NHS Long Term Plan - Motion to Take Note (31 Jan 2019)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...plan, which is some months away, was not published alongside the 10-year plan. What confidence can we have that the forthcoming spending review will provide the funding that, in the context of Brexit, is bound to be required for a huge increase in the number of training places? Also, why on earth are we having an NHS workforce plan? Why can we not have a health and social care workforce...

Tobacco Products and Nicotine Inhaling Products (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (4 Dec 2018)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord for this opportunity to discuss e-cigarettes. It is also a great opportunity to press the Minister on the Government’s Brexit situation. I do not think that we have heard him on this matter before. It is interesting to reflect on the confidence set out in the Explanatory Memorandum that, “as a responsible government, we will continue to...

Education (Student Support) (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Regret (21 May 2018)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...regulation are similarly affected. More nurses and midwives are leaving the profession before retirement; one in three nurses is due to retire in the next 10 years. For various reasons, including Brexit, work pressures and the age profile of the nursing profession, the number of nurses and midwives on the NMC register at the end of March 2018 was less than that in March 2017 and...

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

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...good debate in Committee. Although much of the focus tonight has been on Erasmus, his amendment actually goes wider. However young people voted in the referendum, and whatever the outcome of the Brexit negotiations, the Government have said that post Brexit they want a closer partnership with the EU. Given that, there is a mutual interest in ensuring that young people enhance the...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill - Report (20 Mar 2018)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...that this country still has a lead in some aspects of nuclear research. The noble Lord, Lord Broers, spoke about that very eloquently. This is at risk because of what is happening in relation to Brexit and our withdrawal from Euratom. It is important to have on the face of the Bill—in primary legislation—a commitment that the Government will report on research and development. I wish...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (8th Day) (Continued) (19 Mar 2018)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...been an excellent debate. Here we have a successful and innovative industry with lots of SMEs involved, but their very future is at risk because of the approach that the Government are taking to Brexit. We need to be clear about this. The noble Lord, Lord Empey, talked about CE marking and the notified body. What is crucial is that the CE marking is a logo placed on medical devices to show...

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

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...suicide of the party opposite in its failure to embrace the wishes and ambitions of young people, but the tragedy is that those young people will be most affected by its approach to Europe and to Brexit. This approach seems to be driven by some wistful look back at this country’s imperial past. It is interesting that the noble Lord referred to Australia and Canada, because that seems to...

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

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: My Lords, we now come to an amendment which concerns two EU programmes which are clearly at risk as a consequence of the Brexit withdrawal. The first is Horizon 2020, which is a major funder of research, principally in our universities. One cannot talk about this funding programme without making reference to the impact on the UK economy. I remind the Minister that the Government’s...

Civil Service Impartiality - Private Notice Question (5 Feb 2018)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...long and distinguished ministerial career. However, in the last few days we have had assertions made, both by Ministers and by Members of Parliament, that officials are deliberately frustrating Brexit or fiddling the figures. Those civil servants cannot defend themselves in public. Does the noble Lord agree that officials must have confidence in being able to provide robust and...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (31 Jan 2018)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...strategy and precious little hope. Whatever her virtues, she is simply not leading at a time when the country is crying out for leadership and to be brought together. As the chairman of the Commons Brexit Select Committee put it this week, after 19 months no one is any the wiser as to what the Government want from the Brexit negotiations. The Cabinet has not reviewed, evaluated or decided...

NHS: Cancer Treatments - Question for Short Debate (25 Jan 2018)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ..., nearly 20 years, still facing the huge problem of innovation adoption. It is true that the Government have established the accelerated access review; they also have a life sciences strategy, post Brexit. However, we have to do much more. Of course finance is important, but the Minister will know that it is not just about finance—it is about attitude. I hope that the one message he will...

Smoking: Vaping - Question (19 Dec 2017)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: My Lords, lest Brexiteer noble Lords get too excited, will the Minister confirm that it was the British Government that pressed the EU for draconian regulations, and the EU modified what Britain wanted? We should beware repatriation of those regulations.
