I firmly believe that we need national effort to reduce inequalities and to give everyone, whatever their background and wherever they live,...

International Education Strategy (22 May 2019)

Judith Cummins: ...matter will be, in respect of all the various trade agreements that they have promised, which have largely failed to materialise. These issues have been compounded by the Government’s handling of Brexit. Since the EU referendum result, universities have reported a fall in the number of EU students—in particular, postgraduates—enrolling in British universities. EU students are...

Business of the House: Exiting the European Union (Customs) (8 Apr 2019)

Judith Cummins: The statutory instrument before us today contains extremely important measures to ensure that the United Kingdom has a robust export controls regime in place after Brexit. It is needed to prevent UK exports from being used for torture activities, capital punishment or the suppression of citizens and their human rights in other countries. It is absolutely right that we ensure the continuance...

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

Judith Cummins: My constituency voted to leave. I am a democrat, and I respect the result of the referendum, but does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that a no-deal Brexit would not be in the interests of my constituents or this country?

International Trade: Creative Industries (15 Nov 2018)

Backbench Business: Freeports — [David Hanson in the Chair] (11 Oct 2018)

Judith Cummins: tax revenues—some 0.7% of the total tax take that year, with the port and shipping industries being the largest contributors. I welcome the renewed focus on the maritime sector in the wake of Brexit. Although it is right that we consider the role that ports play, we must also consider that role in the context of Brexit. The Department for Transport estimates that in 2017, 55% of...

Backbench Business: Freeports — [David Hanson in the Chair] (11 Oct 2018)

Judith Cummins: ...proposal for our future trading relationship with the EU; a failure to give our exporters any clarity about what their future trade environment looks like; a failure to adequately prepare for Brexit at our ports; a failure to properly invest in transport infrastructure; and a failure to develop any coherent plan to support economic growth and investment in our coastal communities. I look...

Judith Cummins: ...ranging from Switzerland to Mexico are overseen by joint committees of the EU and those other states. Will the Minister tell us how many of the committees will be replaced by UK equivalents after Brexit, and what progress his Department has made in establishing those institutions? Will he also tell us where the staff and expertise will be sourced from, and at what cost to the taxpayer?

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Implementation of international trade agreements (30 Jan 2018)

Judith Cummins: My hon. Friend is absolutely right that that must be set out in regulations and in statute. I want to spell out clearly the connection between this amendment and one of the key issues in the post-Brexit settlement between the UK and the EU—namely, the border issue on the island of Ireland. Hon. Members will recall the dramatic scenes last month when our Prime Minister finally managed to...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Implementation of international trade agreements (30 Jan 2018)

Judith Cummins: facilitating market access. The Labour party made a manifesto commitment to guaranteeing the world’s least developed countries continued duty-free and quota-free access to the UK market, post-Brexit. I am pleased that the Government agreed to match that pledge, but we need to go considerably further if we are to ensure that our trade policies really contribute to the realisation of...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Examination of Witnesses (23 Jan 2018)

Exiting the Eu: Science and Research (19 Dec 2016)

Judith Cummins: ...debate, and I congratulate the Government on recognising that Members of the House are worried about how the Prime Minister plans to take Britain out of the EU and about what the fine print of Brexit will be—not least for science and research and for the many interlinked sectors and economies. The impact on our universities and on their ability to maintain their immense contributions to...
