Results 1–20 of 79 for brexit speaker:Ian Murray

Business of the House (24 Oct 2019)

Ian Murray: ...why the Government are refusing to produce an economic impact assessment on the withdrawal agreement Bill? If it is the case, as the Leader of the House said, that there are broad sunny uplands to Brexit, why is he so reluctant to prove it?

Brexit Readiness: Operation Yellowhammer (25 Sep 2019)

Ian Murray: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. During the earlier exchanges, the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster said on a number of occasions that the retail sector was “ready for Brexit”—I think those were the three words he used. The British Retail Consortium has subsequently said that that is not the case and is incorrect. How can we get the record corrected?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Effect on the Union (24 Jul 2019)

Ian Murray: ...and thank him for his unstinting courtesy in that role. The new Prime Minister’s election yesterday means that the Scottish Conservative and Unionist party is now the Scottish Conservative and Brexit party, which means that it is abandoning Unionism. Is not the new Prime Minister now as big a threat to the Union, if not a bigger threat to the Union, than any nationalist, and what will...

Devolved Administrations: Borrowing Powers — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (9 Jul 2019)

Ian Murray: I understand that the Minister’s opening remarks are about the Government protecting the Union, but what does he say to the 63% of Conservative members who would rather see Brexit than the UK staying together?

Exiting the European Union: UK Economy (16 May 2019)

Ian Murray: If the rumours are true, the withdrawal agreement Bill will come back to the House shortly. There is no credible analysis, including from the Government, that shows that any form of Brexit will be beneficial to the UK economy, so will the Bill include a detailed economic and environmental impact assessment of its impact on every single sector, region and nation of this country?

Acquired Brain Injury: Death of John Smith: 25th Anniversary (9 May 2019)

Ian Murray: ...that anyone wandering past the leader’s office would have been forgiven for thinking everyone had gone stark raving mad. But I wonder what John Smith would have made of today’s greatest issue, Brexit. Today is Europe Day, and he was a great internationalist. For one, he would not have gambled on calling a referendum and he would have challenged the constant downplaying of the...

Acquired Brain Injury: Death of John Smith: 25th Anniversary (9 May 2019)

Ian Murray: ...radical and progressive agenda for a reformed European Union that put jobs and people first. I just wish that we could have that approach today. I am in no doubt that he would be deeply saddened by Brexit, angered by the lies told during the referendum and dismayed by the Prime Minister’s approach. I think that today he would endorse exactly the position taken by his former deputy, my...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Elections: Voter Registration (8 May 2019)

Ian Murray: The Secretary of State is a big advocate of the Prime Minister’s Brexit deal. If he has such great confidence in that deal, why does he not have confidence in the people and allow them to decide whether it is a deal that they want?

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill: Duties in connection with Article 50 extension (8 Apr 2019)

Ian Murray: ...said that nobody was considering leaving the single market. Indeed, the whole campaign was predicated on having the easiest trade deal in history, on 40 trade deals rolling over by 29 March, on a Brexit dividend, and on an extra £350 million a week for the NHS, but none of that has come to pass.

Leaving the European Union — [James Gray in the Chair] (1 Apr 2019)

Ian Murray: My hon. Friend has been utterly fantastic on Brexit from start to finish. I am sure she will mention this later, but our constituents have been signing up to the big petition to revoke article 50, including 32% of my electorate in south Edinburgh. She will be as disappointed as I am that the Prime Minister and the Government, given that they are in such a mess, have simply dismissed those...

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

Ian Murray: ...we should have left the European Union—so it is a good day to look at the report cards for the Government and the leave campaign on where we should have been by today. Where is the £350 million Brexit bonanza for our NHS? It is not there. Where is the easiest trade deal in history? Not only is it not the easiest in history, but the Government have had to take it out of this particular...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Government Policies: Implications for Scottish Economy (27 Mar 2019)

Ian Murray: The Secretary of State and I had a conversation in the Tea Room on Monday, but given that he is not answering this question I will have to ask about something else. Brexit is obviously the biggest issue with regard to the impact on the Scottish economy, so can the Financial Secretary tell us how much the Scottish economy will shrink by if the Prime Minister’s deal is passed in this House?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU (20 Feb 2019)

Ian Murray: We have seen over the past few weeks the large number of businesses that have been warning about Brexit and the Government’s strategy on Brexit. I keep being told by the leave campaign, “Don’t worry; businesses will adapt.” Well, they are adapting. They are adapting by moving their holding companies and their brass plates to other European Union countries. What will the Secretary of...

EU Trade Agreements: Replication (13 Feb 2019)

Ian Murray: ...the people that they wish for from all over the world to work in our those services. Can the International Trade Secretary tell us how many of these roll-over agreements—or how many of the post-Brexit agreements—will be rubbished or dictated by the fact that many of our partners that want bilateral trade deals want a lessening of the UK’s hostile environment policy?

Points of Order: [7th Allotted Day] (11 Jan 2019)

Ian Murray: ...make my constituents poorer. Surely that cannot be correct. Surely nobody voted to be poorer. We need to stop this catastrophe now, which means voting against the shoddy, blind, worst-of-all-worlds Brexit deal and putting this back to the people in a public vote. Let us have more democracy, not less. We are 77 days away—the stakes could not be higher—and all the major questions as to...

Business of the House (10 Jan 2019)

Ian Murray: Is it not about time that the Government started to be straight and honest with the British public? The Prime Minister has continued to repeat that there is a Brexit dividend, despite the fact that we all know there is not a Brexit dividend and, indeed, the Government’s own figures show that there is not a Brexit dividend. May I unusually ask the Leader of the House for us not to have a...

Treasury Committee (13 Dec 2018)

Ian Murray: I congratulate the right hon. Lady and her Committee for producing this report, which could be summed up in one sentence: Brexit makes the country and every one of our constituents poorer. We see that when we get to the conclusions. However, my question is about financial services. I have tens of thousands of financial services jobs in my constituency, and under all the models examined in the...

Leaving the EU (26 Nov 2018)

Ian Murray: ...this country poorer, compared with being a member of the European Union. If she is insistent on making my constituents and those of everyone in this House poorer, should they not be asked if no Brexit is as good as a bad Brexit?

Progress on EU Negotiations (22 Nov 2018)

Ian Murray: Last night the Chancellor of the Exchequer conceded on national television that the Government’s “worst of all worlds” Brexit will make the country much poorer than the current position of being a member of the European Union. Does the Prime Minister agree with the Chancellor?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (1 Nov 2018)

Ian Murray: ...the lowest corporation tax in the G7 and do not need to take that money. It could have been put towards truly ending austerity. Let me finish with the biggest lie in Budget history. There is no Brexit deal dividend in this Budget. That was a lie by the Chancellor. Even Standard & Poor’s has said that if there is a no-deal Brexit, unemployment will double, every household will be £3,000...
