Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016 - Motion to Regret (4 Jul 2016)

Lord Callanan: ...friend Lord Prior to confess to the House that, if it had not been for the moderating effect of Brussels, the new regulations could have been “far worse”. This is a very difficult issue for a Brexiteer such as me to confront. Certainly, and somewhat unjustly, the EU has been on the receiving end of anger over the e-cigarette regulations. One poll found a very large majority for Brexit...

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

Lord Callanan: ...is saying. The second is that virtually everything has been said but of course not everyone has yet said it. Before the referendum, after much careful thought and consideration, I supported Brexit, and of course I support the Bill today. I am fully aware that the negotiations over our departure from the EU and the follow-on trade arrangements will be difficult, complicated and drawn out,...

Aviation - Question (26 Jun 2017)

Lord Callanan: The whole issue of Brexit and how liberalised air transport will go forward will be the subject of negotiation. We want to ensure seamless access to European air transport matters, and I am sure the European aviation industry will want to access UK policy, too.

Aviation - Question (26 Jun 2017)

Lord Callanan: I take my noble friend’s concerns on board. Many airlines want access to the south-east of England. As we proceed with Brexit, aviation will be a critical component of our engagement with the rest of the world. More people will need to visit this country; more people will need to travel abroad for a new UK sector. Of course, the expansion of Heathrow, if it proceeds, will provide extra...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (26 Jun 2017)

Lord Callanan: ...more resilient Britain: a country with its sights firmly set on the future and on what we can achieve as we build closer links with friends and trading partners around the world; as we deliver a Brexit deal that works for all parts of the United Kingdom; and as we grow and rebalance our economy, working to meet the aspirations of the whole nation. These themes will crop up regularly in our...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill - Second Reading (5 Sep 2017)

Lord Callanan: ...be able to provide ATOL-protected holidays across the whole of the EU. Consumer protections are a key priority for this Government, and this Bill will further this aim, an aim that transcends the Brexit negotiations. In short, we are legislating now to ensure that we continue to have strong consumer protections in place as we leave the EU. The UK has always been a leader when it comes to...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill - Second Reading (5 Sep 2017)

Lord Callanan: ...the future of consumer protection once the UK leaves the EU. The UK has always led the way in protecting holidaymakers. We remain committed to consumer protection and will continue to do so after Brexit. For example, we established the ATOL scheme two decades before the original package travel directive was agreed across Europe. ATOL is of course enshrined in UK legislation and will remain...

Monarch Airlines - Statement (9 Oct 2017)

Lord Callanan: ...there—and therefore people would have been stranded abroad. Moving on to the questions from the noble Baroness, Lady Randerson, I am afraid that I just do not agree that this was the impact of Brexit. I know that she wants to attribute everything that goes wrong at the moment to Brexit, but on this occasion she is just wrong. Monarch Airlines was carrying 14% more passengers this year...

Space Industry Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day) (16 Oct 2017)

Lord Callanan: ...Union. As I said at Second Reading, the UK’s membership of the European Space Agency will not be affected by the UK leaving the EU. I was asked about the release of the studies on the impact that Brexit will have on the sector. Since the referendum, the Government have been undertaking rigorous and extensive analysis work to support our exit negotiations, define our future partnership...

Brexit: Sectoral Impact Assessments - Private Notice Question (2 Nov 2017)

Lord Callanan: As I said, we still need to have further discussions with the chairman of the Brexit Select Committee in another place. Of course, following those discussions we will reflect further on what information we will want to provide to comply with the Motion, and I have undertaken to have a similar discussion with the chairman of the committee in this place. I do not want to go any further than...

Brexit: Sectoral Impact Assessments - Statement (7 Nov 2017)

Lord Callanan: ...as looking at existing precedents. Our analysis is constantly evolving and being updated. But it is not, nor has it ever been, a series of impact assessments examining the quantitative impact of Brexit on these sectors. Given this, it will take the Government some time to collate and bring together this information in a way that is accessible and informative to the committee. We will...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Brexit: Impact Assessments (14 Nov 2017)

Lord Callanan: ...being updated based on our discussions with industry and our negotiations with the EU, but it is not, and nor has it ever been, a series of impact assessments examining the quantitative impact of Brexit on these sectors. The Secretary of State has said that he will provide sector analysis to the Exiting the European Union Committee in an informative and accessible way as soon as is possible.

Lord Callanan: ...being updated based on our discussions with industry and our negotiations with the EU, but it is not, and nor has it ever been, a series of impact assessments examining the quantitative impact of Brexit on these sectors.

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Brexit (27 Nov 2017)

Lord Callanan: ...Union (Withdrawal) Bill and the implications of exit for the devolved institutions. Parliamentary Under Secretary Robin Walker also attended the first meeting of the Interparliamentary Forum on Brexit last month.

Brexit: Release of Impact Assessments - Statement (28 Nov 2017)

Lord Callanan: My Lords, many Members of this House are independent and we fully value their judgment. They will be able to look at the documents. Many Members are on the Brexit Select Committee and I am sure they will let us know their point of view in due course.

Brexit: Trade in Non-financial Services (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (18 Dec 2017)

Lord Callanan: My Lords, it is a privilege to respond to the debate today on the Select Committee’s report, Brexit: Trade in Non-financial Services. I am conscious of the late hour so while I will endeavour to respond to as many as possible of the points that have been made, if I miss one or two then I will look at the record and will be happy to write to noble Lords to respond to them. I put on record my...

Brexit: Trade in Non-financial Services (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (18 Dec 2017)

Lord Callanan: ...Aberdare, drew our attention to mobile roaming. Of course, he is correct that roaming surcharges for travel within the European Economic Area were abolished in June. Of course, in the course of Brexit negotiations, we will seek the best possible deal that delivers for UK consumers and businesses in this sector. A number of noble Lords raised the issue of creative services, particularly the...

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

Lord Callanan: I assure the noble Lord that Brexit will go ahead. We are committed to it and will be leaving the EU in March 2019. None of that will impact on our membership of the Council of Europe.

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Brexit: Public Consultation (5 Jan 2018)

Lord Callanan: The Government notes the report published by University College London Constitution Unit Citizens' Assembly on Brexit. As the PM has stated on many occasions, the Government is committed to securing the best possible deal for the United Kingdom - a deal that works for all parts of the UK and UK economy. We are engaging on EU exit issues with a wide range of organisations from all sectors...

Brexit: Reports to Parliament - Question (8 Jan 2018)

Lord Callanan: My noble friend makes a good point. We want a Brexit that will command the maximum possible level of support across this House and—I am not sure that the two things are related—across the country as well. We will want to involve as many people as possible, and of course we want to try to make that process as harmonious as possible, involving all different shades of political opinion.
