Tributes to the Speaker (31 Oct 2019)

Jack Dromey: ...narrow party political interest. She is lionised by Jaguar workers and Land Rover workers, as we have worked together to defend the interests of our manufacturing base against the background of Brexit. She will be sorely missed. Mr Speaker, yours has been a remarkable trajectory, from being a member of an organisation so right-wing that even Norman Tebbit abolished it, to being a fully...

No-Deal Brexit: Short Positions Against the Pound (30 Sep 2019)

Jack Dromey: ...of the shares and sold Cadbury short. Does the Minister not recognise that there is a potential conflict of interest when we have a Prime Minister prepared to sell Britain short by way of a no-deal Brexit, backed by those who make billions daily out of selling our nation short?

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Jack Dromey: As the Prime Minister sought to close down Parliament, some in his Government sought to silence the voice of employers speaking out about their concerns on Brexit. That was revealed last week by the Financial Times report on four different employer organisations. Will the Prime Minister condemn such behaviour and say in unequivocal terms that there can be no question ever of that voice of...

Exiting the European Union: Policing and Security (5 Sep 2019)

Jack Dromey: Operation Yellowhammer found that a no-deal Brexit could lead to “a rise in public disorder and community tensions”. Do the Government not recognise that the toxic and irresponsible use of language, such as “collaborators”, “treachery” and “surrender”, deepens the divisions in our country and puts the public at risk, including Members of this House? Have they not learnt the...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill (4 Sep 2019)

Jack Dromey: ...the engineers? The simple truth is that the overwhelming and unmistakeable voice of the world of work and industry, and of all the employers’ organisations and trade unions, is that a no-deal Brexit would have catastrophic consequences, with tens of thousands of workers losing their jobs, making our country poorer in every sense of the word for years to come.

Priorities for Government (25 Jul 2019)

Jack Dromey: Yesterday, 50 representatives of 2 million workers in manufacturing came to Parliament to detail their grave and growing concerns over the threat of a no-deal Brexit. They asked whether the Prime Minister would meet them, so that he could hear at first hand just how serious a no-deal Brexit would be for them. Will the Prime Minister agree to do that?

Access to Pension Credit (24 Jul 2019)

Jack Dromey: ...hon. Friend the Member for Ogmore secured this debate to focus on that. I will refer to one other outrage, to be frank: the changes to pension credit slipped through on the same night as the first Brexit meaningful vote: from 15 May, new pensioners whose partners are younger than the state retirement age of 65 may no longer claim a means-tested top-up called pension credit. Instead, they...

Exiting the European Union (Sanctions): Section 1 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2019 (9 Apr 2019)

Jack Dromey: ...say no to no deal. The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders on building cars, the ADS on building planes and Make UK, the former Engineering Employers’ Federation, all say that a no-deal Brexit would be a catastrophe. The Food and Drink Federation says that prices would soar and that no deal would be a disaster. Our farmers would face immense problems with our biggest market, on...

Automatic Enrolment: Lower Earnings Limit (12 Mar 2019)

Jack Dromey: ...under your chairmanship, Sir Gary. I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Paisley and Renfrewshire South (Mhairi Black) for initiating the debate. I strongly agree with her that however central Brexit is to the future of our country, we run the risk of issues of immense importance and concern to the general public not being properly addressed here. I therefore commend her for bringing...

Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Feb 2019)

Jack Dromey: ...made follows sustained cross-party campaigning, exemplified by the excellent leadership of the right hon. Member for Meriden (Dame Caroline Spelman). In bringing home the consequences of a no-deal Brexit, we have built a powerful business coalition, and their voice could not be clearer. Only yesterday they met here, against the background of already painful consequences being felt,...

Honda in Swindon (19 Feb 2019)

Jack Dromey: this House, such as the hon. Member for North East Somerset (Mr Rees-Mogg), who when confronted by the automotive industry’s concerns about, for example, frictionless trade and the impact of Brexit, say, “Fake news.” Does the Secretary of State agree with me that our 850,000-strong automotive industry is a world-class success story, and that nothing should be done that puts it at...

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the EU (14 Feb 2019)

Jack Dromey: ...,400 workers to 3,300, but it has lost 1,000 jobs in the last 12 months, and growing uncertainty is seeing more and more job losses. These are good, secure, well-paid jobs, now being put at risk by Brexit. It is nothing short of extraordinary that there continue to be too many Members in this House who are just oblivious to the consequences of their actions. The week commencing 25 March...

Nissan in Sunderland (4 Feb 2019)

Jack Dromey: ...,500 jobs going at Jaguar Land Rover and we now have the news about Nissan. The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders is warning that the industry is now “on red alert” as a consequence of Brexit uncertainty. Does the Secretary of State agree, on the one hand, that we should rule out any question of a no-deal Brexit, and crucially, on the other hand, that this House needs to come...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Jan 2019)

Jack Dromey: ...days away from a cliff. If we plunge over the precipice into an abyss, our country will be poorer in every sense of the word. Last night, this House voted that there can be no question of a no-deal Brexit. Will the Prime Minister honour the will of Parliament and rule out a no-deal Brexit, because to proceed with a no-deal Brexit will not only impoverish our country, but be contemptuous of...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [9th Allotted Day] (15 Jan 2019)

Jack Dromey: ...knows more about the automotive industry than he does. The right hon. Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Mr Duncan Smith) said that “not a single job will be lost” as a consequence of Brexit. What planet do they live on? That is why two things are key. First, this is not a good deal and we have to get to a good deal that works for Britain. We have to get to that, honouring the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (7 Jan 2019)

Jack Dromey: ...currently enjoy the guarantee that their state pension will be uprated annually. The same is true for pension entitlement built up working in another European Union state. With 81 days to go until Brexit, does the Minister recognise that the Government’s total mishandling of Brexit means that we might crash out with a no-deal Brexit, and that in those circumstances it would be not just...

European Council (17 Dec 2018)

Jack Dromey: year. We have to have a degree of certainty. Without it, the future for many companies and workers will be catastrophic. Why does the Prime Minister not rule out now any question of a no-deal Brexit?

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Statutory Obligations on Ministers (11 Dec 2018)

Jack Dromey: ...more of uncertainty take us ever closer to the cliff. Pending Parliament deciding where we eventually go, we must rule out no deal. Will the Government therefore call a vote next week on no deal-no Brexit?

Exiting the European Union (10 Dec 2018)

Jack Dromey: .... We are but three months away from the cliff. Whatever the ultimate way forward agreed by this House is in the next stages, will the Prime Minister today rule out any question of a no-deal Brexit? The jobs of tens of thousands of workers depend on it.

Government Overseas Aid Commitment: Private Investment: EU Exit Negotiations (9 Oct 2018)

Jack Dromey: ...generally and Jaguar Land Rover in particular—and will he disown those on his side who, when faced with industry warnings about the potentially catastrophic consequences of a no-deal or hard Brexit, wrote them off, saying that they were “making it up”?
