Civil Partnership (Opposite-sex Couples) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (5 Nov 2019)

Lord Cashman: ...repeatedly asking the Government to bring forward those regulations. I know that there are problems of capacity within all government departments in relation to the work that has to be done on Brexit but, in the end, we cannot excuse the fact that inequality rumbles on and blights the lives of those who carry these convictions, which often prevent them going into occupations which they...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Second Reading (5 Sep 2019)

Lord Cashman: ...degree of certainty and hope, and if for no other reason I would grab this Bill with both hands. As the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Leeds said: what about division? By going for a no deal Brexit, what happens to the 16 million-plus, such as me, who with our values would feel completely disconnected from our country? Do we heal the division there? No— we reinforce it. Therefore,...

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Bill - Second Reading (18 Jan 2019)

Lord Cashman: ...brilliant civil servants that we have—about capacity in our departments. I am particularly worried at this moment about capacity in the Home Office, dealing as it has to with the repercussions of Brexit or possibly no Brexit. An example, which I offer the House as a warning, is that, during the passage of the Policing and Crime Act in January 2017, I introduced an amendment, which the...

Brexit: Consumer Protection (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2019)

Lord Cashman: ...down and saying nothing. However—there is always a “however”—I want to take a slightly different point of view. The report highlights widely shared concerns regarding the Government’s Brexit negotiations and their impact on our ability to maintain protections and standards in consumer policy both within the EU 27 and in the United Kingdom when we are outside. I am among those...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (23 Apr 2018)

Lord Cashman: ...board and will embrace it. If I am not surprised, I will return to this issue. Others outside the House will return to this issue. I believe that it defines the kind of country we want to be post Brexit. Now more than ever, we need to offer reassurances not merely within the two Chambers of this Palace but within the Bill.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (23 Apr 2018)

Lord Cashman: ...the Human Rights Act. I also worry, as my noble friend Lady Lister outlined, that the Conservative manifesto 2017 said: “We will not repeal or replace the Human Rights Act while the process of Brexit is underway but we will consider our human rights legal framework when the process of leaving the EU concludes. We will remain signatories to the European Convention on Human Rights for the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (9th Day): Amendment 261 (21 Mar 2018)

Lord Cashman: ...be as a consequence of either the UK or the EU adopting higher standards. The joint committee called for the withdrawal agreement to provide for continuing north-south equivalence of rights post Brexit, as established under the 1998 Good Friday agreement. Furthermore, the joint committee is concerned that the failure to retain the European Charter of Fundamental Rights and EU equality...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (31 Jan 2018)

Lord Cashman: ..., human rights and the dilution of democracy. I share their views. In the debate in my name in your Lordships’ House on 12 December, I posed questions to the Minister on human rights post Brexit. I was not reassured by the replies, either during the debate or in subsequent correspondence. I want now to refer particularly to the recommendations that came from the Equality and Human...

Brexit: Equalities Impact Assessment - Question (21 Dec 2017)

Lord Cashman: There is widespread concern about the possible dilution of rights post Brexit. Therefore, will the Minister assure the House that there will be no regression of equalities and human rights, and that, should any changes be necessary, they will be addressed solely through primary legislation?

Brexit: Justice for Families, Individuals and Businesses (EU Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (20 Dec 2017)

Lord Cashman: ...proposals and those that subsequently became regulations. Here we are talking about three very important regulations which affect people’s lives. The report considers the ramifications of Brexit for the EU’s programme of civil justice co-operation, whose regulations, as the noble Baroness, Lady Kennedy, referred to, are known collectively as the Brussels regime. The evidence in the...

Lord Cashman: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what are their human rights priorities in the light of Brexit.

Brexit: Human Rights - Question for Short Debate (12 Dec 2017)

Lord Cashman: ...the referendum to leave the European Union. There is growing uncertainty as people fear for their future, their families and their right to remain, despite the joint paper on citizens’ rights. If Brexit is to happen, this debate is a chance to begin to articulate what we expect from the Government and to start asking the challenging questions. Who do we want to be as a country? How can...

Brexit: Creative Industries - Question (18 Oct 2017)

Lord Cashman: ...Musicians’ Union, producers and others are part of the consultation group that meets the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport to iron out the problems that they foresee on the road to Brexit?

UK and EU Relations - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (12 Sep 2017)

Lord Cashman: ..., I assure him that I will certainly not finally bow on what I believe was a wrong decision that does not serve the future of this country. In recent weeks, there has been much speculation about a Brexit transition agreement. Sadly, the position papers—or “shifting position” papers, as I call them—have not helped matters. There is now greater uncertainty, not less. Where there...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (28 Jun 2017)

Lord Cashman: ..., and I was welcoming them to go the opposite way with another gesture. It is worth repeating that, whatever else the election was, it was not an endorsement of the Prime Minister’s approach to Brexit, and it was certainly not a mandate for more of the same. It helps no one to argue otherwise. On our relationship with the European Union, more than anything else, this Government must...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (1st Day) (20 Feb 2017)

Lord Cashman: ...define a democracy and protect those who seek its justice, especially in a country without a written constitution. Like other noble Lords, I have been inundated with emails asking me to oppose Brexit, to protect the single market and freedom of movement, and to protect the fundamental rights that arise from the treaties—not least non-discrimination on the grounds of race, ethnicity,...

Informal European Council - Statement (6 Feb 2017)

Lord Cashman: ...and the European Medicines Agency? Does she believe in the effectiveness of these organisations and their benefit to the United Kingdom? If so, why are we putting that at risk by going for a hard Brexit?
