Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Manufacturing Industries (22 Oct 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: I have met with manufacturing businesses at roundtables across the country to encourage them to get ready for Brexit and the opportunities beyond. The recent opening of Jaguar Land Rover’s £500 million Advanced Product Creation Centre is a real vote of confidence in the UK’s future as a stronger, greener economy after we have left the European Union.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (22 Oct 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: ...this Dispatch Box as Leader of the House, it is a huge pleasure to be here today with such a superb ministerial team. In addition to my Department’s vital work to help businesses to prepare for Brexit, we have set out three key priority areas for BEIS. First, we aim to lead the world in tackling climate change. From the Prime Minister chairing a new Cabinet committee to our hosting of...

International Climate Action (26 Sep 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: ...Friend is exactly right. We are all delighted that COP 26 will be held in Glasgow. We shall all be there. It will be a great opportunity to visit Scotland as part of a stronger United Kingdom post-Brexit. We all very much look forward to it. My hon. Friend is exactly right to say that the Ayrton fund offers a fantastic opportunity to contribute to low-carbon technologies for use in...

Early Years Family Support (16 Jul 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: can provide a vital part of her legacy. I am told that the inter-ministerial group I chaired was the only significant piece of cross-departmental work under way, with the obvious exception of Brexit. I am so grateful to the Prime Minister for tasking me with the enormous responsibility of contributing my own experience and knowledge in this policy area to fundamentally change our...

Business of the House (9 May 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: The hon. Gentleman is asking me a specific policy question that is clearly one for the Cabinet Office and/or for the Brexit Department. I would encourage him perhaps to lay a named question so that he can get a direct answer to his specific request.

Business of the House (2 May 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: ...talks are under way. She will know as much as me—possibly more—about the progress of those talks. We all hope they come to fruition very soon and that we make some progress in delivering on Brexit, which the House has committed itself to doing but has failed singularly to achieve so far. The hon. Lady raised several other very serious points. I would encourage her to raise the question...

Business of the House (2 May 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: ...hon. Gentleman raises a very important point. He will be aware that at the beginning of this Session we announced that it was going to be an extended Session because we had a significant amount of Brexit legislation to get through, as well as a very packed domestic legislative programme. That remains the case and we keep the end of the Session under review. He talks about announcing two...

Business of the House (11 Apr 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: ...Queen. The hon. Lady asks for an update on ministerial responsibilities. She knows that that will be provided as soon as it can be done. The hon. Lady asks about the Prime Minister’s policy on Brexit. She will be aware that the Prime Minister made a statement yesterday, in which she said: “The UK should have left the EU by now and I sincerely regret the fact that I have not yet been...

Business of the House (8 Apr 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: I fear that the hon. Gentleman might be insulting me somewhat as a keen Brexiteer. He is not being consistent, because he usually likes to stand there and insult the other place, talking about how the Lords should be gone, abolished and reduced, yet now, because they are giving him the answer he wants, he is praising them. That is not consistent. It is rather like his approach to referendums:...

Business of the House (4 Apr 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: ...looking at the cherry blossom, as I am sure we all would. Maybe that is what some colleagues were doing before they wandered into the Chamber. The hon. Lady asked about key legislation and the Brexit Bills, particularly the Financial Services (Implementation of Legislation) Bill. As she will know, we want to consider the amendments made in the other place carefully. That Bill is...

Business of the House (28 Mar 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: ...Members across the House, and to mention the tremendous work by civil servants that has gone into the secondary legislation programme. We are tabling a number of statutory instruments related to Brexit to ensure that we have completed our secondary legislation programme. All statutory instruments needed for exit day have now been dealt with appropriately, and Members have spent more than...

Business of the House (28 Mar 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: being arranged by the Backbench Business Committee so that Members may discuss that very issue with Ministers and I encourage him to take part in that. On my hon. Friend’s other point about Brexit squeezing out other legislation, I would like to highlight that, so far in this Session, 51 Government Bills have been introduced, 43 of which have already received Royal Assent—important...

Business of the House (26 Mar 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: ...Minister has said, she will continue to have discussions with colleagues across the House to seek to build support for her deal, so we can, if possible, this week approve the deal and guarantee Brexit. On the hon. Lady’s specific question, the draft statutory instrument the Government hope to bring forward tomorrow will provide for two durations that were agreed with the EU27. Exit day,...

Business of the House (26 Mar 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: ...EU and they would also have to take account of how long those negotiations would take. Finally, as my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister pointed out in the discussion yesterday, and as the shadow Brexit Secretary also made clear in the House, it would not be possible for different parties to accept proposals that their party manifestos rejected at the last general election....

Business of the House (26 Mar 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: I think my right hon. Friend poses an unanswerable question, because of course the ingenuity of the House knows no bounds. What the House has been clear about is that it does not want a no-deal Brexit or a Brexit on WTO terms. I share that desire, but, as we have always been clear, the way to avoid a no-deal Brexit is to vote for the deal. If I may, Mr Speaker, I will quote directly from the...

Business of the House (21 Mar 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: .... I will, of course, continue to consider her requests for further dates. I absolutely agree with the hon. Lady that all Members right across the House have a huge interest in matters outside of Brexit. There is no doubt about that. I think the Business question every Thursday demonstrates the range of different interests across the House. All of us share a desire to be able to talk about...

Business of the House (21 Mar 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: take no deal off the table unless it is by agreeing a deal? You cannot legislate to take no deal off the table. The House has already rejected a customs union, a second referendum and a no-deal Brexit, and it has rejected the Prime Minister’s deal. The House has said a lot about what it does not want to do; it needs to say what it does want to do. Let me quote the hon. Gentleman’s...

Business of the House (21 Mar 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: First, I wish the right hon. Lady a very happy birthday. Secondly, I hope I can reassure her that the issue with a potential no-deal Brexit would be one of capacity at the different borders. Since the UK is still a member of the European Union, there are no problems with borders and accessibility, but she makes a serious point. I am afraid that I am not aware of those reports, but if there...
