Results 1–20 of 21 for brexit speaker:Julian Knight

Prorogation of Parliament — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (9 Sep 2019)

Julian Knight: ...that parliamentary time is used up. We need a new agenda, and a new raft of legislation to put before the House, so that people can see Parliament do something other than argue over and frustrate Brexit. That would restore their confidence in Parliament.

Higher Technical Education Reform (8 Jul 2019)

Julian Knight: ...will have seen the announcement last week by Jaguar Land Rover of a massive new investment in the Castle Bromwich branch near my constituency. It is a real vote of confidence in our nation, despite Brexit. However, JLR needs an enhanced skills base. Does he agree that raising awareness of any new qualifications is key, so that they are not just alphabet soup, and so that we break down...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee (4 Apr 2019)

Julian Knight: ...allowed to intervene, but I will ask my question now. I welcome the advent of the Sub-Committee. In terms of the scale, this is not just about Russia or potential foreign actors intervening in our Brexit-related political crisis from a UK base or from overseas; it goes on worldwide. It is not just one foreign actor, but perhaps up to 39 foreign actors. Does my hon. Friend, the Committee...

Exiting the European Union (Consumer Protection) (2 Apr 2019)

Julian Knight: .... There is bemusement in Brussels about why we are dealing with something that is downstream—the political declaration—rather than the withdrawal agreement itself. As he said, it is either no Brexit or the withdrawal agreement. Take your pick.

Exiting the European Union (Consumer Protection) (2 Apr 2019)

Julian Knight: ...very generous in giving way. He is always conscious of the clock. Does my hon. Friend agree that paragraph 2.4 of the explanatory memorandum emphasises how disadvantaged we could be by a no-deal Brexit in terms of consumer rights? It says: “if we did not revoke the Geo-Blocking Regulation, UK traders would continue to have obligations to EU customers under the Regulation while UK...

Car Production: Solihull (16 Jan 2019)

Julian Knight: ...and families that depend on it, politicians must have an accurate understanding of the real drivers behind the current challenges, and not allow this issue to get caught up in the arguments over Brexit, for example. I therefore want to use my speech to set out why Jaguar Land Rover is so important to Solihull and the wider west midlands economy, and the real reasons behind its current...

Business of the House (Today): No Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (16 Jan 2019)

Julian Knight: ...them. When it comes to the big matter of the economy, however, to jobs, to healthcare, to the 1 million kids in better or outstanding schools, the Government are delivering. We have to get through Brexit and then we will deliver more.

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [5th Allotted Day] (9 Jan 2019)

Julian Knight: ...and service providers that rely on frictionless access to European markets. As the MP for a town that enjoys a visible goods trade surplus with the EU, it is my responsibility to support a Brexit that meets the needs of Solihull’s employers and exporters. This deal, while not perfect, does at least smooth our departure and avoid severe economic disruption in March. Some Members are...

Exiting the European Union: Meaningful Vote (11 Dec 2018)

Julian Knight: ...not having a debate yesterday, but I will take my three minutes where I find them. The country is tired of politicians wasting time bickering. People want us to get on with delivering a practical Brexit that protects our interests and honours the vote. The House has made clear its deep concerns about the proposed withdrawal agreement, most of all the Northern Irish backstop. Having taken...

Exiting the European Union: Citizens’ Rights (25 Oct 2018)

Julian Knight: town of Solihull. They have been concerned by scare stories and by EU intransigence on this issue, and they would like me to ask the Secretary of State whether he can clearly confirm that, after Brexit, EU citizens in the UK and UK nationals in the EU will be able to continue to live their lives as they do today.

Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Jun 2018)

Julian Knight: ...weekend I attended celebrations marking 70 years of production of the great British Land Rover. Will the Prime Minister join me in congratulating the workers of Solihull, commit to securing post-Brexit global trade deals and recognise that new clean diesel engines have a role to play for years to come?

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (3 May 2018)

Julian Knight: Jaguar Land Rover in my constituency employs 9,000 people. Will the Minister assure me that securing the supply chain will be at the centre of our post-Brexit trading relationship with the EU and beyond?

Russian Interference in Uk Politics (21 Dec 2017)

Julian Knight: ...and with international bodies. They, too, are invested in our society and our western ways. Unless they come to the party in this respect, there could be some real problems down the line. On Brexit, I do not think the evidence is quite there at the moment in terms of the level of interference seen in the French elections, but it seeped in almost by osmosis. In Germany, a lot of fake...

Brexit Deal: Referendum — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (11 Dec 2017)

Julian Knight: ...of negotiation. In my recent trip to Germany with the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, we found that there was real enthusiasm for pulling any levers whatsoever to try to stop Brexit. Surely talk of a second referendum just adds succour to those who wish in effect to bring about a punishment Brexit so that there is no Brexit at all.

State Pension Age: Women: EU Nationals (29 Nov 2017)

Julian Knight: ...they have brought a great diversity to our towns, cities and rural communities. Despite the fall in value of the pound and the negative headlines that have appeared since almost the day after the Brexit vote, the net migration figure of close to a quarter of a million is testament to what a great country this still is, not just to visit, but in which to work and make one’s home. People...

TV Licence Fee — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (20 Nov 2017)

Julian Knight: ...Time”. I found the disgraceful story about Laura Kuenssberg that followed deeply alarming and unpleasant, and I raised it on the Floor of the House. There is also what I call the “despite Brexit” coverage of economics stories. That does not come from people thinking that they need to do whatever they can to frustrate the will of the British people—that is not the way it has been...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Julian Knight: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is highly appropriate that this should be the first piece of oven-ready Brexit legislation, as that shows the importance of this industry and of safeguards in it?

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill: Air travel organisers’ licences (11 Jul 2017)

Julian Knight: My right hon. Friend has been most generous in taking interventions. He mentioned that ATOL was last reformed in 2012. Is not the truth that the process will not end with Brexit or with the Bill? It is an ongoing process of reform and renewal.

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill: Air travel organisers’ licences (11 Jul 2017)

Julian Knight: ...EU, but is that not quite wrong? The UK has led the charge in the EU for holidaymakers’ rights. Will the Minister reassure the House yet again that we will protect holidaymakers’ rights post Brexit?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Impact assessments (7 Feb 2017)

Julian Knight: I thought that the hon. Member for Streatham (Mr Umunna) spoke powerfully about breaches of promise, but is there any bigger breach of promise than blocking Brexit by supporting these wrecking amendments?
