Ford in Bridgend - Statement (10 Jun 2019)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Wigley, quoted a senior Ford executive saying that Brexit was entirely to blame, but the Minister seemed to contradict that completely.

Lord Berkeley: ...is as much a problem of attitudes in France to operating anything in France that has not been developed in France.

Lord Berkeley: ...it as a fatal Motion because I feel so strongly about it, but the timing does not really help and I was told it might be several weeks before parliamentary time was found, which would be after the Brexit date that we had—I do not know whether we still do; that is for discussion. This is a really serious problem: transferring all responsibility for railway safety and standards from the...

Lord Berkeley: ...member states, who explained that the company was having trouble in finding out whether its UK licence, in other words its licence to operate in the UK, would be valid in other member states after Brexit.

Trade Bill - Report (1st Day) (6 Mar 2019)

Lord Berkeley: ...and secrecy with what the European Union has done for many years. That applies not just to these trade agreements, but to most discussions with industry and everyone else to do with the whole Brexit process.

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, I share the concerns of the noble Lord, Lord Deben, and my noble friend Lord Foulkes about the costs associated with Brexit.

The Minister said, and I am sure she is right, that, “no taxpayer money has been transferred to the company”.—[ Official Report, 11/2/19; col. 1704.] However, the cost of dredging is...

Merchant Shipping (Recognised Organisations) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (29 Jan 2019)

Lord Berkeley: ...delay the House for long but I have to question the point of this SI. It seems to try to ensure that we have the same safety regulations for passenger ships and many other things as we had before Brexit, this being a post-Brexit SI. But I do not think that we have the same regulations at the moment, because I happened to go on a passenger ship in Brittany last summer which looked exactly...

Lord Berkeley: ...important. I have a friend in Cornwall who runs a company with eight employees who has already moved to the Netherlands because he cannot cope with the problems that are likely to happen after Brexit.
