Offender Management and Treatment - Motion to Take Note (3 Oct 2019)

Lord Jay of Ewelme: ...Centre for Prison Studies, for every 100,000 people in the population of England and Wales 148 were in prison, compared with 94 in Germany and 85 in France. I do not want to turn this into a Brexit debate, but I do not believe that the British are more criminally inclined than the French or Germans. The only justification, therefore, for such an imbalance in the figures would be that we...

Brexit: The Erasmus and Horizon Programmes (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (1 Apr 2019)

Lord Jay of Ewelme: ...the debate and I am also grateful for the Minister’s thoughtful reply. The debate has shown that there continues to be real concern both inside and outside the House about the potential cost of Brexit to many of our young people and to our universities. There is a real need for the Government to do all they can to mitigate the adverse effects of that. As my noble friend Lord Krebs said,...

Brexit: The Erasmus and Horizon Programmes (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (1 Apr 2019)

Lord Jay of Ewelme: ...on 12 February, so it has not yet received an official government response. None the less, due to the interest and concern among the public and in this House about the potential impact of Brexit on participants in the Erasmus and Horizon programmes and on the UK’s research and education sectors, I hope that Members of the House will understand why the committee wanted to bring this...

Brexit: Proposed UK–EU Security Treaty (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2019)

Lord Jay of Ewelme: I too thank noble Lords who have taken part in the debate. It has been a serious one on a serious subject.

Finally, I thank her for her...

We further stressed: “Negotiations on security are not a ‘zero sum game’: we all stand to gain...

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

Lord Jay of Ewelme: ...Friday/Belfast agreement, which has, over 20 years, led progressively to what those of us in the rest of United Kingdom would regard as a normal life. But what worries me greatly in this ghastly Brexit saga is the deteriorating relationship between London and Dublin. I would be very grateful if the Minister, in replying to the debate, gave an absolute assurance that a continuing,...

Lord Jay of Ewelme: ...access emergency care free of charge, or that we can retire to another EU country and rely on continuing to receive care on similar terms to that offered by the NHS. But, as in so many other areas, Brexit means that we now have to go back to the drawing board. This inquiry was launched last autumn, when the over-riding concern of our witnesses was over the status of UK and EU nationals who...

Brexit: UK-EU Relations (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (2 Jul 2018)

Lord Jay of Ewelme: ...—the Commission’s negotiating stance. As other noble Lords have said this evening, the Government need to recognise that, seen from Paris, Berlin, Rome or Madrid, finding a solution to the risk Brexit poses to internal security is far less immediate a problem than finding one to the migration issue and the domestic political challenges they now face. Last week’s European Council...

Brexit: Sanctions Policy (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (3 May 2018)

Lord Jay of Ewelme: ...EU foreign and security policy with a stronger defence element than we shall like. But I hope we will not let those differences get in the way of the close co-operation we shall need after Brexit on sanctions and wider foreign policy issues with France and, indeed, with the EU 27 as a whole. As the Prime Minister often says, we will remain a European country after Brexit—all one has to...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (10th Day) (Continued) (26 Mar 2018)

Lord Jay of Ewelme: My Lords, Amendments 337 and 341 are in my name. They have a simple aim: to ensure that if there is a breakdown in the negotiations leading to a no-deal Brexit, the position should be fully and properly considered by Parliament before any final decision is taken. I am encouraged by all that the Government have said about their intention to ensure that there should not be a breakdown in the...

Lord Jay of Ewelme: .... They include the fugitive bomber, Hussain Osman, who attempted a terror attack in London on 21 July 2005 and was arrested a week later in Italy.
