Shared Rural Network - Statement (28 Oct 2019)

Lord Inglewood: ...as chairman of the Cumbrian local enterprise organisation, which probably contains a lot of tops of mountains. The area will probably be, according to independent analysis, the most affected by Brexit of any part of Britain. One of the themes of our efforts to reinvigorate the economy, after what will on any measure be a setback, is proper digital connectivity. Therefore, while I welcome...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (17 Oct 2019)

Lord Inglewood: ...the House in the debate last week on the report by the noble Lord, Lord Foster, on the rural economy. Thanks to the slippage in the timetable, I was unable to give them. I do not wish to comment on Brexit because, in an era of socioeconomic change in rural Britain and elsewhere, it is more or less irrelevant to discussion of the issues, although it may become relevant to the framework by...

Regulating in a Digital World (Communications Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (12 Jun 2019)

Lord Inglewood: ...made to it in the text. As the report points out, leaving the EU presents some real difficulties in this regard. They can, and no doubt will, be negotiated and dealt with in another way in a post-Brexit world, but the problem has always gone much further than the European Union. Collectively, Governments of the world must somehow evolve a universal and consistent framework for the modus...

Brexit: Movement of People in the Cultural Sector (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (15 May 2019)

Lord Inglewood: My Lords, this report, the Government’s response to it and the eloquent introduction by the noble Lord, Lord Jay, all focus on a significant aspect of the debate about Brexit which has not had sufficient attention paid to it. Before continuing, I declare my interests in the register, pointing in particular to the fact that I am the chairman of the Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership. One...

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

Lord Inglewood: ...Horam, did, with the proposition with which we can all concur: we are in a mess. I had planned to make a longer speech but everything has been said. It is just important to underscore the fact that Brexit is both a cause and a symptom of our domestic political problems. We need to bear that in mind in the context of this debate. What has slightly surprised me is the number of speakers who...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (3rd Day) (14 Jan 2019)

Lord Inglewood: ...pleasure to follow my Cumbrian neighbour and friend, the noble Lord, Lord Liddle, even though I do not imagine he would necessarily describe me as progressive. The first time I heard the phrase “Brexit means Brexit”, I thought it was a snappy, purposive soundbite, but I have now come to the conclusion that it is probably at the heart of our nation’s present discontent. As others have...

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

Lord Inglewood: ...we live in a world of regulated markets, which I personally believe is a good thing. I and many of my fellow citizens do not want to live in a kind of ersatz Singapore. Of course, the heart of the Brexit project is the referendum, whose authority, it is true, has been tarnished and whose prospectuses were in general pretty bogus. As far as I can see, the case for Brexit goes back to the...

Brexit: Negotiations - Motion to Take Note (20 Nov 2018)

Lord Inglewood: ...our participation. This has enriched our country, generating revenues for private and public sectors and paying, I suspect, for our net contributions to the European Union budget. The road to Brexit is through a gate called the withdrawal agreement, and Brexit entails our leaving the single market. We have been told that trade with other countries will make up the difference. All I can say...

Brexit: Economic Effect - Question (18 Oct 2018)

Lord Inglewood: My Lords, I declare an interest as chairman of the Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership. We are now being asked regularly by businesses large and small about what the Government think the impact of Brexit will be on Cumbria. They want to know this to start planning for the post-Brexit era. It seems both ignoble from the Government’s perspective and very unhelpful from the perspective of...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Brexit (22 Aug 2018)

Lord Inglewood: ...1) a no deal situation, (2) the arrangements set out in The future relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union, and (3) remaining in the EU, before any meaningful decision about Brexit.

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: EU External Trade: Falkland Islands (3 Jul 2018)

Lord Inglewood: To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they are taking to ensure the continuation after Brexit of the Falkland Islands' current tariff-free access to EU markets for meat and fish products.

Nuclear Safeguards Bill - Commons Amendment (6 Jun 2018)

Lord Inglewood: ...the Minister is absolutely certain that his house is not going to burn down, I am sure that that has not stopped him taking out an insurance policy. Equally, the Government, who are convinced that Brexit will take place, should recognise nevertheless that there is a possibility that, for various reasons, something may not happen as they hope. Having the strongest form of reassurance in the...

Brexit: Competition and State Aid (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (24 May 2018)

Lord Inglewood: ...beyond that, the requirements, such as those in the context of the European Union, are likely to be more stringent. If this country is looking for comprehensive, frictionless trade into the EU post Brexit, it is more or less completely wishful thinking not to suppose that something giving effect to the vast generality of existing EU rules will be required. This is a proposition with which...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (23 Apr 2018)

Lord Inglewood: ...as to precisely what the Government’s plans might be in this area. As we all know, one of the basic principles of the Bill is to parachute existing EU law into domestic legislation so that on Brexit day minus one and Brexit day plus one, the rules to be adhered to will be the same—albeit that the constitutional framework and administrative structures around them may be quite...

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

Lord Inglewood: ...that the two sets of confidential documents I have seen in 100 Parliament Street confirm the damaging impact of leaving that marketplace. If we do not attain equivalent arrangements in any post-Brexit world, the capabilities of this sector will be much diminished, as has been said. As we speak, the sector is rearranging its modus operandi and exporting not only its products but its...

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

Lord Inglewood: ...extremely well and in everybody’s interests. Therefore, I ask my noble friend the Minister whether he can give the Committee an assurance that, whatever arrangement may come into being after Brexit, they will work as well as the existing arrangements. We have heard a number of speeches this evening that have been a trifle philosophical in tone, and I do not want to criticise anybody for...

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

Lord Inglewood: ...Now that Article 50 has been served in response to the outcome of the referendum, we are thereby tearing up our agreement with the other EU member states. As a result, both sides are looking beyond Brexit—through exit, to the world beyond. Naturally, everyone is trying to secure advantage for themselves. No matter what we do next, be it wise or foolish, it is always better to try to do...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Cultural Heritage: EU Action (25 Jan 2018)

Lord Inglewood: ...to seek an exemption from the provisions of the proposed EU Regulation on the import of cultural goods in respect of domestic personal effects of those proposing to live and work in the EU post-Brexit.

Agriculture, Fisheries and the Rural Environment - Motion to Take Note (2 Nov 2017)

Lord Inglewood: ...interests in the register and, in particular, explain that I am a farmer; secondly, to congratulate my noble friend Lord Lindsay on the timeliness of this debate. That is obviously partly because Brexit means that the CAP will no longer apply here, but, more importantly, because the general political and socioeconomic framework within which agriculture is set is changing around the world....

UK and EU Relations - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (12 Sep 2017)

Lord Inglewood: ...reasons which I need not go into, I became very much preoccupied with non-political things. At the beginning of the autumn I awoke rather like a slightly insomniac Rip Van Winkle and took stock of Brexit. We are now on the road which, unless something intervenes, inexorably means we head off over the cliff edge of a hard Brexit. I was struck by the irony of how voting to take back control...
