Human Rights: Future Trade - Motion to Take Note (3 Oct 2019)

Baroness Falkner of Margravine: ...same thing as human rights. Looking at human rights, let me turn more directly to what Parliament can do in the here and now on the UK’s position on safeguards in future trade agreements, post Brexit. I welcome the fact that the UK has committed to staying within the EU approach towards human rights standards, including impact assessments and human rights clauses. In so far as the UK...

Brexit: Negotiations - Statement (3 Oct 2019)

Baroness Falkner of Margravine: ...either the United Kingdom or the EU might be the only circumstances under which the consent formula would kick in again. In other words, continue with the framework at the point of departure, of Brexit, and make changes only when a certain threshold has been achieved.

Brexit: European Investment Bank (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jul 2019)

Baroness Falkner of Margravine: My Lords, I am delighted to introduce this EU Committee report on Brexit and the European Investment Bank. In doing so, let me start by thanking all members of the sub-committee who participated in the inquiry, some of whom cannot be here today. As I have stood down as chairman of the sub-committee after four years, let me say a word or two about what a privilege it has been to lead this...

Liaison Committee - Membership Motions (1 Jul 2019)

Baroness Falkner of Margravine: ...Union Committee facing 31 October will lose 34 members in one fell swoop. That will undoubtedly have an impact on its principal work, which is considering how we will deal with either a managed Brexit or a no-deal Brexit. My final point to the Senior Deputy Speaker is that our understanding of the way in which the composition of Select Committees is determined is that Front-Benchers in...

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

Baroness Falkner of Margravine: ...difficult to say that paying a bit more would result in a good deal. I turn, in concluding, to the issue of the UK withholding the exit fee of £39 billion. My committee conducted an inquiry into Brexit and the EU budget in March 2017. We came to the view that while the UK had a moral and political obligation if it wanted a good deal, there was no jurisdiction in which the EU could...

Brexit: The Future of Financial Regulation and Supervision (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (6 Jun 2018)

Baroness Falkner of Margravine: For the record, the noble Lord was critical that we took for granted single market withdrawal. All I would say is that he should read our 2016 report, Brexit: Financial Services, chapter 2, where we cover all the alternative arrangements. So in that case he was shooting the messenger unnecessarily. The noble Lords, Lord Liddle and Lord Davies of Stamford, and my noble friend Lady Kramer did...

Brexit: The Future of Financial Regulation and Supervision (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (6 Jun 2018)

Baroness Falkner of Margravine: My Lords, on behalf of the EU Sub-Committee on Financial Affairs, I am delighted to introduce this EU Committee report, Brexit: The Future of Financial Regulation and Supervision. Our inquiry was undertaken between September and December 2017, and subsequently, four members have left the committee. They are the noble Lords, Lord Haskins, Lord Skidelsky, Lord Woolmer and Lord Fraser of...

Divorce (Financial Provision) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (11 May 2018)

Baroness Falkner of Margravine: ...was correct. Otherwise, I am, I think, the first of the lay speakers to comment on the Bill today. The only interaction I have had with divorce in the past few years has been in the context of the Brexit negotiations; I recall taking issue early on with Michel Barnier when he referred to the Brexit negotiations as a divorce. I think I suggested that divorce law was on the whole rather more...

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

Baroness Falkner of Margravine: ...the passion with which he has engaged his campaign for a third referendum, but I wonder to what extent he has reflected on developments on the other side of the English Channel. For the EU, while Brexit may have been a distraction, it is continuing a business-as-usual model, which is why we have seen such unity. Its priority is rightly to secure the financial stability of the eurozone, and...

Brexit: Deal or No Deal (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2018)

Baroness Falkner of Margravine: ..., not those of German car makers, Italian prosecco producers or French fishermen; it is domestic. I therefore need to say to him that we did take evidence from people who are cheerleaders for Brexit and have come out very definitively in support of that cause. I cite Mr John Longworth, the co-chairman of the Leave Means Leave campaign, and Dr Ruth Lea, whom I have known for a good 25...

Immigration Control (Gross Human Rights Abuses) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (15 Dec 2017)

Baroness Falkner of Margravine: ...Declaration of Human Rights. It will also be the year when the UK hosts the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting—the first time that the UK will have had that role this century. In a post-Brexit environment, what a powerful signal it would be if the Government followed Canada’s example and incorporated this Bill into law by April 2018.

Brexit and the EU Budget (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (6 Apr 2017)

Baroness Falkner of Margravine: My Lords, I am delighted to introduce the EU Committee report, Brexit and the EU Budget. I thank all members of the committee, which, along with the other sub-committees, has worked at an extraordinary pace since the referendum to examine all the significant areas of policy that will be impacted by Brexit. I benefit in my chairmanship from an extraordinary level of expertise and talent in the...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Report (7 Mar 2017)

Baroness Falkner of Margravine: ...jobs are in line at the moment. The idea that business will hang around for a further four years was rebutted in the evidence we took for the report of the EU Financial Affairs Sub-committee on Brexit and its impact on financial services. We were told in terms that uncertainty was extremely damaging to the sector and that people therefore wished to have a transition period. Let me conclude...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (21 Feb 2017)

Baroness Falkner of Margravine: ...people anyway, if not in 2016 then perhaps in 2026. Let me turn now to the central purpose of the Bill, which is in effect to trigger Article 50. While it may be theoretically possible to revoke Brexit while the talks on the question are still going on over the next two years, politically we cannot revert to the status quo ante. It is contrary to what the other 27 countries of the EU...

Brexit: Financial Services (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (9 Feb 2017)

Baroness Falkner of Margravine: ...were extremely concerned about their future businesses, workforces and livelihoods, we reflected that in the debate. Frankly, we did not encounter too many voices cheering the impact of Brexit on financial services from the rooftops. Where I entirely agree with the optimists is about the durability of the City of London to innovate, reinvent itself anew and adapt. Voltaire picked this up...

Brexit: Financial Services (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (9 Feb 2017)

Baroness Falkner of Margravine: ...with her in the future. In the wake of the referendum of 23 June last year, the EU Select Committee agreed to undertake a series of short, co-ordinated inquiries into the implications of Brexit for various policy sectors. The Financial Affairs Sub-Committee began by looking into the impact on financial services. The committee took evidence from nine panels of witnesses—21 in...

European Union and Canada: Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement - Question (27 Oct 2016)

Baroness Falkner of Margravine: I thank the noble Baroness for her reply. I wonder whether she recognises these words: Brexit, “means immediately seeking Free Trade Agreements with the biggest prospective markets as fast as possible. There is no reason why many of these cannot be achieved within two years. We can pick up the almost complete agreement between the EU and Canada, and if anything liberalise it”. In case she...
