Results 1–20 of 28 for brexit speaker:Lilian Greenwood

The Economy (24 Oct 2019)

Lilian Greenwood: ..., measures to support and strengthen the national health service, and investment in education, but I am afraid they will be disappointed. If the Government press ahead with their plans for a hard Brexit, there is a good chance that not only will there be no extra money for our police, health service and schools, but there will be less money for all our public services. My constituents...

The Economy (24 Oct 2019)

Lilian Greenwood: My right hon. Friend is making an excellent speech. Does he agree that perhaps one of the reasons why the Government are so anxious not to publish an economic impact assessment of their Brexit proposals is that it would show that our economy will suffer under their hard Brexit, that our public finances will suffer under their hard Brexit, and that the promises that they have made about...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Lilian Greenwood: ...judgment yesterday began: “It is important to emphasise that the issue in these appeals is not when and on what terms the United Kingdom is to leave the European Union.” Without reference to Brexit, will the Prime Minister now apologise to this House and to the people of this country for giving unlawful advice to the Queen when he tried to silence this Parliament?

Business of the House (28 Mar 2019)

Lilian Greenwood: Last week, in the midst of this Brexit mess, the University of Nottingham held an event to celebrate their European staff. The vice-chancellor told colleagues that the university will remain open and welcoming even if—especially if—the political climate does not. Will the Leader of the House join me in congratulating the University of Nottingham? Does she share my shame that a major...

EU Exit Preparations: Ferry Contracts (5 Mar 2019)

Lilian Greenwood: ...Secretary of State awarded contracts to ferry operators as part of his no-deal contingency planning, the Transport Committee, which I chair, received two submissions to our inquiry into freight and Brexit alleging that the Secretary of State had acted illegally in doing so. Although it has already been published, I would like to make the House aware of the written evidence submitted by Dr...

EU Exit Preparations: Ferry Contracts (5 Mar 2019)

Lilian Greenwood: ...about the basis on which this settlement was reached and the legal risks that it entails. Finally, I return to the question I asked yesterday, to which I received nothing but bluster. If there is a Brexit deal, or if indeed there were no Brexit, how much of the taxpayers’ £33 million do the Government expect to recover from Eurotunnel? I take it from the Secretary of State’s earlier...

Eurotunnel: Payment (4 Mar 2019)

Lilian Greenwood: The Secretary of State for Transport may have ducked today’s questions, but I am pretty sure that my Committee will still require his answers. If there is a Brexit deal or, indeed, if there is no Brexit, how much of our taxpayers’ £33 million do the Government expect to recover from Eurotunnel?

Seaborne Freight (11 Feb 2019)

Lilian Greenwood: ...said that the circumstances were the “unexpected and unforeseeable limitations on the extent to which the market had… been able to” put “in place contingency plans” for a no-deal Brexit. Given that the Government have consistently provided reassurances that that there will not be a no-deal Brexit, how was it “unexpected and unforeseeable” that the market was unable or...

Nissan in Sunderland (4 Feb 2019)

Lilian Greenwood: ...damage of continued uncertainty about our future relationship with the EU. The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders has been warning for many months about the very grave dangers of a no-deal Brexit, but in recent weeks numerous Nottingham employers, including Paul Smith, East Midlands airport and Siemens, have all contacted me to raise exactly the same concerns. The Secretary of...

Leaving the European Union — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Feb 2019)

Lilian Greenwood: The hon. Lady makes the important point that people knew what deal we already had, but I take her back to the wording of the petition: “the British people MUST be given the Brexit they voted for”. Can she tell me what the Brexit that they voted for was?

Leaving the European Union — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Feb 2019)

Lilian Greenwood: The hon. Lady’s answer to my intervention was not what I hoped for. Do not all of us in the House of Commons have different versions of what an acceptable Brexit deal would look like? Some advocate a close relationship with the single market and a customs union; some support the deal that the Prime Minister made; and many in her party say that that is not the Brexit that they voted for....

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Leaving the EU: Ports (10 Jan 2019)

Lilian Greenwood: ...warning of possible disruption to its services if additional daytime freight movements are required. Is his Department really contemplating emergency rail timetables in the event of a no-deal Brexit? Has he written to Southeastern regarding such contingency plans? Should the many thousands of rail commuters in Kent be bracing themselves for possible disruption?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Dec 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: Almost 1,000 Nottingham South residents have already responded to my Brexit survey. Only 7% back the Prime Minister’s deal and more than three quarters want to vote on Brexit if MPs cannot agree. She will not let Parliament have a vote and she opposes letting the people have a vote. Are not her attempts to dodge and delay simply costly and reckless?

Exiting the European Union (10 Dec 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: This morning, a prominent Nottingham business warned me that a no-deal Brexit could put it out of business. This afternoon, the Prime Minister raised the threat of an accidental no deal. It is crystal clear that her deal cannot command a majority in this House, whenever we vote on it. Is not her time-wasting delay simply reckless?

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: 1st Allotted Day (4 Dec 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: ...with interest to one of my Nottinghamshire neighbours. When the hon. Gentleman’s constituents voted to leave, does he think that they voted to be poorer, because we have heard that every Brexit scenario will leave people in Nottinghamshire poorer?

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: 1st Allotted Day (4 Dec 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: ...the triggering of article 50. It was a difficult decision, but I voted against that motion at the conclusion of the debate, because I was not convinced that the Government had a proper plan for Brexit. I take no satisfaction in being proved right. The Prime Minister’s failure to unite the country, focusing instead on trying to satisfy the warring factions in her own party, is a terrible...

Leaving the EU: Aviation Sector — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (31 Oct 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: ...chief executive of Airbus said that there will be “severe negative consequences” to withdrawing from the European Union, and that they will be particularly severe if there is a hard or no deal Brexit. Does he agree that it is essential that the Government address those issues to protect high-skilled and high-paid engineering jobs in our aerospace industry?

M26 Closures (25 Oct 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: ...well prepared for what might come about on 29 March next year? Is he aware that the Comptroller and Auditor General expressed concerns about the Department’s preparedness last week to the Brexit Committee, when he said that the Department “has convinced itself that it is less risky than it actually is”? Is it not time that the Department got on top of this issue, to avoid the very...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (25 Oct 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: Today we learnt that Nigel Farage could be in line for a £150,000 pay-off when we leave the EU. Our Future, Our Choice has produced a report analysing the impact of Brexit on young people, revealing that those aged 18 to 29 could lose £76,000 in earnings by 2050—or even more in a worst-case scenario. With young people hit hardest by a bad deal, will the Secretary of State agree to meet...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Leaving the EU: Perishable Scottish Food (11 Oct 2018)

Lilian Greenwood: producers, as it is for businesses and people throughout the UK. In October 2016, the Secretary of State told the Transport Committee that future aviation arrangements would form part of the Brexit negotiations “in the next few months” and would be handled by the Department for Exiting the European Union. A year later, with no evidence of progress, the Secretary of State assured...
