Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Alan Brown: ...an over-casual attitude towards obeying the rules of the House”. At roughly the same time, the Independent Press Standards Organisation ruled that he wrote an inaccurate article about a no-deal Brexit.

Thomas Cook (25 Sep 2019)

Alan Brown: ...have with Thomas Cook and what financial appraisal did the Government make before saying that they could not fund that money? This is a Government who can find £100 million to advertise that Brexit is good for us. I think they should spend that money on supporting jobs instead.

Exiting the European Union (Transport) (23 Jul 2019)

Alan Brown: ...job. There is one slight difference: paragraph 2.8 of the explanatory notes details a “significant change”, in that there is a power for the Secretary of State to designate standards after Brexit day. So there we have it—there is a Brexit dividend: more powers for the Transport Secretary! However, he does not intend to wield these powers, fortunately; there is enough chaos and...

Alan Brown: The Secretary of State has stated that, in the event of a no-deal Brexit, EU regulation 2019/501 will allow UK drivers to continue to drive HGVs in the EU. That regulation has an end date of 31 December this year, so will he confirm that the 2020 vision under a no-deal Brexit for UK drivers, importers and exporters is one of chaos and uncertainty?

Alan Brown: ..., but we are not going to have a new Prime Minister in place until July and we will then have the summer recess. It will therefore be almost impossible to make proper preparations for a no-deal Brexit in October, yet the Transport Secretary is supporting a no-deal candidate for the leadership of the Tory party. Can the Minister detail any work that is going on just now, or is the...

Ford in Bridgend (10 Jun 2019)

Alan Brown: ...impact assessment has been done as a result of the decision by Ford? What funding guarantees can be given to match Government actions, rather than just warm words? The Secretary of State said that Brexit is not responsible for this decision, but Ford was one of the companies that warned of the dangers of a no-deal Brexit, so when will this Government rule out a no-deal Brexit to stop any...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Devolution Settlement (8 May 2019)

Alan Brown: It is because of nonsense like this and Brexit being imposed on Scotland that many Scots now want a say in their future as regards independence.

Does he...

Alan Brown: ...winning £33 million in compensation, and then the Minister stands at the Dispatch Box and tells us the £50-odd million cancellation of the current services is the right thing to do as part of the Brexit preparations.

British Steel: EU Emissions Trading Compliance (1 May 2019)

Alan Brown: ...the Secretary of State talked about the need for Members to reflect on the impact of decisions or non-decisions in this place.

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: House of Lords Membership (24 Apr 2019)

Alan Brown: The Minister mentioned consensus, but the reality is that due to Brexit and the PM’s failed leadership, this House is completely gridlocked, which gives the bishops and hereditary peers in the unelected Lords more power than ever and a greater say in Scotland’s future than the Scottish Parliament itself. Does he agree with his Scottish Tory colleague, MSP Murdo Fraser, that the other...

Alan Brown: ..., as has been said, so why it is in the main Chamber? It is a complete farce and another indication of this zombie Government who have nothing to do because everything is stalled because of Brexit. We keep hearing about getting on with the day job, but it is quite clear that the Government are not getting on with their day job and that everything is stalled. We had a similar SI in a normal...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Leaving the EU: Transport-Related Industry (21 Mar 2019)

Alan Brown: ...payment to Eurotunnel, a reported £28 million compensation payment to the ferry companies in respect of the no-deal contracts, a shortage of some 60,000 HGV drivers that will be exacerbated by Brexit, and the loss of transport industry confidence, surely the best boost for the industry would be the Secretary of State’s stepping aside.
