European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (22 Oct 2019)

Lisa Nandy: ...we would respect the result of the referendum, feel very strongly that this Bill must be allowed to proceed to Committee so that we can engage in the detail and see whether it is possible to get a Brexit deal that protects our constituents? For many people back home in towns such as Wigan, this is an article of faith in the Labour party and in democracy, and those of us who are seeking to...

Brexit Readiness: Operation Yellowhammer (25 Sep 2019)

Lisa Nandy: ..., in particular, is critical to the import of medicines from across the EU. Can he tell us why he believes that medical supplies and medicines will not be disrupted in the event of a no-deal Brexit? Will he publish those assumptions in full so that I can look my constituents in the eye and tell them that in just a few weeks’ time they will still have access to life-saving medicines?

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

Lisa Nandy: ...the angels are on one side.” We would do well to remember that in this House. Coherent, persuasive and passionate arguments and points have been made by people with every single type of view on Brexit, and we ought to respect one another and conduct the debate in that spirit. This is not an easy thing for me to vote for, because I have spent the last few years arguing passionately that...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act (25 Mar 2019)

Lisa Nandy: ...whether she will be able to access insulin. People can accuse me of scaremongering all they like, but the Government’s technical notice cannot tell us what will happen in the event of a no-deal Brexit. What sort of Government cannot guarantee access to medicines in just a week’s time?

Backbench Business: Former British Child Migrants: Payment Scheme (26 Feb 2019)

Lisa Nandy: ...or so, and she has taken it on the chin and responded. It was her who came to this place and said that it was incredibly difficult to get things through Government with everything going on with Brexit. I have seen that for myself—we have all seen it—and I know she has fought hard to get us here. I thank her on the record for that and for her ongoing commitment to try to resolve the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (29 Jan 2019)

Lisa Nandy: ...mechanism in many other countries, including Ireland, to break similarly controversial deadlocks. The importance of amendment (h) is that the 46 MPs who are signatory to it come from all different Brexit positions and none. That proves that there are a number of us in this House who are willing to step out of the trenches and start to compromise. This matters because HOPE not hate produced...

Leaving the European Union — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (19 Nov 2018)

Lisa Nandy: ...his colleague, the hon. Member for Morley and Outwood (Andrea Jenkyns). As well as making the points that he mentioned, I also asked him what the Government’s plan B would be to avoid a no-deal Brexit if the current deal were not passed by the House of Commons. I would be grateful if he responded to that in the remaining time.

Leaving the European Union — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (19 Nov 2018)

Lisa Nandy: I thank the Petitions Committee for bringing forward this debate and allowing us to consider, with only months to go, what the impact of a no-deal Brexit would be on this country. I have to admit that, in eight years in Parliament, I have never been more worried—not just about the potential impact on this country, but about the state of British politics and our apparent inability to listen...

Leaving the European Union — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (19 Nov 2018)

Lisa Nandy: in my constituency. I agree with the right hon. Member for Carshalton and Wallington that many of these very good companies will go under if we do not take action now to prevent a no-deal Brexit. On the way down here last week, I was stopped at the train station in my Wigan constituency by a mum whose son has a life-limiting illness: Duchenne muscular dystrophy. That young boy,...

Leaving the European Union — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (19 Nov 2018)

Lisa Nandy: I could not agree more. As we approach Brexit, far too many people are making false promises or are being far too complacent about the potential impact of what we are going to do. I have spent time talking to our counterparts who are about to bear the brunt of it. They know the cost of it, and we should too. Still now, given everything we know about what is about to hit us, the Government are...

Leaving the European Union — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (19 Nov 2018)

Lisa Nandy: ...I outlined a moment ago. The state of this debate is an absolute disgrace. It needs to be reset with honesty and clarity. That begins with the Government setting out their plan B to avoid a no-deal Brexit if, as seems likely, the withdrawal deal does not secure the consent of the House. What legal advice have the Government had about the mechanism to revoke article 50? Without knowing...
