British Steel (21 May 2019)

Rachel Reeves: ...have presided over the decline of the UK steel industry: the closure of Redcar in 2016; the lack of assurances obtained from Greybull when it took over British Steel; the chaotic handling of Brexit; and the failure to agree a sector deal with the steel industry, which it has been crying out for. The Government now have a chance to right some of those wrongs. I urge the Minister to do...

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

Rachel Reeves: ...when we vote this evening. My message to right hon. and hon. Members about the merits of my amendment, and why I hope they will support it, is straightforward. If they voted leave and want to see Brexit resolved but are worried about the danger of a no-deal Brexit, it would remove that risk. If they are pushing for a Norway-plus solution, it would keep open that possibility. If they are...

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

Rachel Reeves: ...Pharmaceutical Group said, “we are trying to rebuild what we may have taken apart.” Of course, we have also had the news from Jaguar Land Rover, which described a “perfect storm”, of which Brexit is one fierce element, that is now resulting in 4,500 job losses. We are a position in which the Government say that the deal they have negotiated is not as good for our economy as the one...

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

Rachel Reeves: ...been passed, neither with the support of the Government—to the Finance Bill and to the business motion—and both those amendments made it clear that the view of this House is to avoid a no-deal Brexit. That is the priority of this House—not the issue of the backstop, which he seems to have been addressing for the past hour. Instead of trying to unite his party, as the right hon....

Leaving the EU (14 Jan 2019)

Rachel Reeves: ..., no security arrangements in place and no certainty for businesses and workers, and would put the future of Northern Ireland at risk. Given how catastrophic the Prime Minister accepts a no-deal Brexit would be, will she now rule it out and instead look to extend article 50 if and when Parliament rejects her deal tomorrow?

Finance (No. 3) Bill: Review of powers in consequence of EU withdrawal (8 Jan 2019)

Rachel Reeves: ...the European Union without a deal, which would have catastrophic impacts on their businesses and on the people who work for them. For that reason alone, anything that we can do to avoid a hard Brexit and going on to WTO rules, as some Members suggest, is the most important thing. This amendment at least helps to provide some safeguards to stop that from happening.

Income Tax (Charge) (29 Oct 2018)

Rachel Reeves: ...budget deficit would be eliminated, we still have a budget deficit. In my short time this afternoon, I will just look at some of the detail on family finances and business taxation and, finally, at Brexit. The £1.7 billion announced for universal credit work allowances by the Chancellor this afternoon is welcome, but it falls short of the £3 billion that is necessary to ensure that no...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee (17 May 2018)

Rachel Reeves: ...Committee for giving time for this statement. This is the fifth and final report in a series of inquiries that the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee has held on the impact of Brexit on key sectors of our economy, covering the civil nuclear sector, automotives, aerospace, and food and drink, and today, we publish our report on the impact of Brexit on the pharmaceutical...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee (17 May 2018)

Rachel Reeves: the European Union can then be accessed in the UK, but that may not be the case after we leave the European Union. For those three reasons, I think that there is a risk to patients from a hard Brexit, at least, or from a no-deal scenario.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee (17 May 2018)

Rachel Reeves: I can sense my hon. Friend’s frustration that jobs will be lost in her constituency because of the risks of Brexit. GSK has made it very clear that Brexit will cost it a lot of money. If it is testing its drugs in the UK, it may no longer have access to European markets, because those drugs will not be recognised unless they are tested in mainland Europe. That is creating new costs, as GSK...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Leaving the EU: Automotive Sector (7 Nov 2017)

Rachel Reeves: Our successful car manufacturing sector exports nearly 1 million cars a year to the rest of the European Union. However, the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders has said: “Brexit is the greatest challenge of our times”. What is the Secretary of State doing to ensure that there are no costly tariffs or time-consuming customs checks in the sector after we leave the EU?

Amendment of the Law (8 Mar 2017)

Rachel Reeves: ...Budget; there was not a single mention by the Chancellor of the European Union or the negotiations that we presume will begin at the end of this month. There is increasing concern that a hard Tory Brexit, in which we fall back on WTO rules and tariffs, will further harm our exports and inward investment, yet there was nothing today to assure businesses and investors that we will have a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Manufacturing Exports (19 Apr 2016)

Rachel Reeves: ...that the last thing that exporters need, and the last thing that the one in 10 jobs that depend on our exports to the EU need, is the uncertainty that the referendum is bringing—and, indeed, that Brexit would bring—to them and to those jobs?
