The Economy (24 Oct 2019)

Rachael Maskell: ...are paying a far heavier price, however, for a decade of failure, which was emphasised again in the Humble Address. The Humble Address exposed two things. First, the list of Bills demonstrated that Brexit will not be “done”, and that this is the start of at least a decade of Brexit talks, pushing out legislative space to deal with our national crises. Housing—not mentioned;...

Free Movement of EU Nationals (2 Oct 2019)

Rachael Maskell: I am really appreciative of the hon. Lady’s speech, which is excellent, particularly around the research community. Brexit has a massive impact on my constituency, not least because of the university in it. One of the issues that constituents have raised with me regularly is that they now cannot plan for their future, or that of their family unit. That is because they do not know what will...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Rachael Maskell: Brexit may be a power game for the Prime Minister, but it will have a devastating impact on my constituents. Whether he tries to strongarm this Parliament into a no-deal situation or a bad deal, the reality is that our country is so divided. It is therefore his responsibility to bring the country together. His demonstration tonight shows that he does not have those skills, whereas my right...

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

Rachael Maskell: This is a national crisis; it is not business as usual. We elected parliamentarians should be in this House debating all the crucial issues related to Brexit, not least of which is what the Government will come up with in relation to the Northern Ireland backstop; at the moment, it looks like the emperor’s new clothes. The hon. Gentleman’s argument that we should use the façade of a...

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

Rachael Maskell: ...and Transport for London. I note that the Department highlights that that does not come within the scope of the regulations, but will the Minister tell the House how this will operate in a no-deal Brexit scenario, since a transfer of authoritative bodies, inspection bodies and the enforcement body could impact on fees? Labour will support these regulations this afternoon, but I hope to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Jun 2019)

Rachael Maskell: ...Minister did not intervene to stop him. The Lib Dems and Tories voted through the Health and Social Care Act 2012, which opened up the NHS to the US market, and 10% of it is already privatised. The Brexit party leader has no issue with US private healthcare insurance replacing our NHS. No party can be trusted with our NHS—except the Labour party. Is Labour now the only hope to save our NHS?

Leaving the European Union — [James Gray in the Chair] (1 Apr 2019)

Rachael Maskell: ...that we are seeing played today, we need something clear and pure that moves forward. I am witnessing political fixes by the political elite for political survival, and that simply will not do. If Brexit gets through on the margins we are seeing in the votes as they progress—it may be meaningful vote 5 or meaningful vote 6—the country will never forgive Parliament for the economic...

Leaving the European Union — [James Gray in the Chair] (1 Apr 2019)

Rachael Maskell: happening over leaving the European Union. It is putting my local city at risk, so I will stand up for how people in my city voted back in 2016 to ensure that we do not end up in a disastrous Brexit mess. The reality is that we are not seeing clear, cool, calm heads progressing the debate. We saw that clearly when the Prime Minister came to the podium and started pitching MPs against...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (21 Mar 2019)

Rachael Maskell: .... However, it is the chaos across our borders that is my concern today. Will the Secretary of State ensure that the Prime Minister, in making her case to the European Council to avoid a no-deal Brexit and about how essential it is to extend article 50, highlights that a border between the EU and the UK will harm trade and the flow of goods, food and medicines and be catastrophic for the...

Regional Transport Infrastructure — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (5 Mar 2019)

Rachael Maskell: ...for future engineering projects, I say to the Minister—I am sure he has had similar conversations himself—that we are facing a skills cliff edge at the moment, given our ageing demographic and Brexit. The industry is doubtful that the infrastructure projects mentioned will be delivered. At the same time, there is a draw-down into the south-east, which means that we may not see the...

Human Rights in the UK — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (13 Feb 2019)

Rachael Maskell: ...people; they are very much voiceless in our institutions, and we need serious reparation. Today, I will take a different perspective. People will be glad to know that I am going to talk not about Brexit but about my city of York, which became the UK’s first human rights city on 24 April 2017. Currently, there are 41 human rights cities across the world, including nine in Europe, which...

Rail Infrastructure Investment — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (17 Jan 2019)

Rachael Maskell: ...deeply concerned about the skills needed to deliver all that is contained within this excellent report. I ask the Chair of the Select Committee and the Minister to reflect on skills. Not only with Brexit, but with an ageing demographic across the rail industry workforce, we face real issues and challenges: we are on a cliff-edge of skills. I ask the Minister exactly what is being done to...

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (12 Dec 2018)

Rachael Maskell: ...Minister’s conduct, the pound has fallen by 2% in the past 48 hours—her Budget’s equivalent of running the entire NHS for six weeks. Does she believe that this is a price worth paying for her Brexit deal?

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Rachael Maskell: As this debate has progressed, the limitations of the Prime Minister’s deal have been exposed. We have witnessed a process whereby Brexit has come to mean a charade in which transparency and accountability have been dodged, with total disregard for the concerns that people had when they voted. My interpretation of the vote on 23 June 2016 has always been that our country is divided. We can...

Inclusive Transport Strategy (25 Oct 2018)

Rachael Maskell: installed across the network—thanks to Labour’s amendment. However, two years on, we are still waiting for the Government to lay the regulations. When will those regulations be laid? Will Brexit get in the way yet again, or will we see them laid? The bus companies say that they are not able to install the equipment because they do not know the scope of the requirements on them. I...

Racehorse Protection — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (15 Oct 2018)

Rachael Maskell: ..., I want to make a couple of other points about horse welfare associated with the sport. The BHA or an independent regulator might also have a perspective on these issues. First, as we move into a Brexit scenario, given the 26,000 horse movements across European Union borders, delays at a border will clearly have an impact on horse welfare. It would be good to hear from the Minister how he...

Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill [Lords]: EU Community Licence arrangements (26 Jun 2018)

Rachael Maskell: ...has certainly moved the Bill forward. Through his amendments, the right hon. Member for Carshalton and Wallington expressed concern about the disastrous way in which this Government are approaching Brexit and the devastating impact it is having on business. There are many reasons why we are hearing the weekly announcements from industry about resettling their business abroad, because delay...

Public Bill Committee: Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill [Lords]: Number and allocation of permits etc (22 May 2018)

Rachael Maskell: is unclear how such a restriction will be devised. How will the Minister and his Department determine the number of permits needed? Journey numbers can be assessed and trends extrapolated post-Brexit, but the norms of yesterday may differ very much from the new reality in which we shall be living. Will there be a set number of permits, or will the numbers fluctuate in response to...

Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill [Lords] (14 May 2018)

Rachael Maskell: ...uncertainty for EU nationals, Parliament must, without doubt, understand the importance of this sector to both the economy and jobs, especially with all the other uncertainties in the industry over Brexit, such as driver hours, custom borders and many of the issues that we have heard about this evening. Negotiations should have established that the UK would be part of the community licence...

Transport for the South East — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (25 Apr 2018)

Rachael Maskell: .... Across the ports in the south-east there is currently concern, however, as the hon. Member for Eastbourne (Stephen Lloyd) said, about the customs arrangements that could well operate in a post-Brexit environment. The ports provide a vital gateway to the British economy. They are a major employer in the region and support millions of passengers each year. Business is dependent on the...
