Youth Inmates: Solitary Confinement: Puppy Smuggling (2 Apr 2019)

Nigel Huddleston: all hours of the day, every day of the week. The current disparity in the border presence between office hours and weekend and evening slots can all too easily be exploited by smugglers. Post-Brexit, the Government could reintroduce a requirement for dogs to have a rabies blood test and set a restriction on how soon after the test they could travel. That could increase the age at which...

Exiting the European Union (11 Mar 2019)

Nigel Huddleston: Does my right hon. Friend agree that those of us who wish to respect the result of the referendum and deliver on Brexit should be comforted by the comments in the statement that my right hon.

Not unsurprisingly, some who do not wish to implement Brexit appear to be uncomfortable with the...

Flybmi (18 Feb 2019)

Nigel Huddleston: and we would like that to continue to be the case. Will she therefore assure me that she and her Department are working with the industry to make sure that it is planning effectively for all Brexit scenarios?

European Council (17 Dec 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: I like to think of myself as a friendly fellow, and I have no particular inclination to fall out with colleagues on either side of the Chamber based on the details of the Brexit deal. The one thing I have learned in politics is that it is perfectly reasonable to look at identical information and come to completely different conclusions—but on values, that is where I disagree. Does the Prime...

Eu: Future Relationship White Paper (12 Jul 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: ...politicians, they know that they will not always get 100% of what they want in life, but they do expect their politicians to deliver.

Ministry of Justice: Department of Health and Social Care and Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (2 Jul 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: ...going to be straight with the British public, how will we achieve this increased expenditure? I am sceptical, but not as sceptical as my hon. Friend the Member for Totnes (Dr Wollaston), about the Brexit dividend. I do, however, like to talk about a deficit dividend; as we reduce the massive amounts of interest that we are paying over time, there will be a benefit to the UK population. We...

Nigel Huddleston: ...that, at either the 2022 or the 2027 general election, one of the major political parties is highly likely to adopt it as a potential option, depending on how the scenario plays out in terms of the Brexit deal. Why not have that discussion now, because it is almost certainly going to come back to us in a future election?

Exiting the European Union: Negotiation Outcomes (1 Feb 2018)

Leaving the Eu: Implementation (29 Jan 2018)

Nigel Huddleston: ...the Minister agree that the purpose of an implementation period is to demonstrate very clearly that we have a realistic grasp of the scale and complexity of the task ahead of us—not to frustrate Brexit, but to reassure the public and business that we want to conduct Brexit in a disciplined and sensible manner?

European Council (18 Dec 2017)

Nigel Huddleston: I congratulate the Prime Minister on the practical and sensible approach she has adopted towards the Brexit negotiations, as opposed to the flip-flopping, contradictions and wholly unrealistic expectations we have heard from the Opposition parties.

The share price of easyJet has fallen by a...

Nigel Huddleston: ...? I respectfully disagreed with my right hon. Friend during the referendum, and I am sure we will respectfully disagree for many times to come, but this is not going to help the outcome of the Brexit decision.

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: [2nd day] (1 Feb 2017)

Nigel Huddleston: ...strong, resilient and dynamic. I never for one moment believed that the sky would fall in if we left the EU, but different segments of our economy will inevitably be impacted in different ways by Brexit. Some will obviously benefit and some will obviously struggle, and all are impacted to some degree by uncertainty. We must work hard and quickly to reduce that uncertainty, and we must...
