G20 Summit - Question for Short Debate (8 Jul 2019)

Lord O'Neill of Gatley: ...that we have something powerful that would help the world move forward and become a better place. That in itself partly relies on the Government having a clear and powerful vision for post-Brexit Britain and the world. Sixthly and lastly, I want to end specifically on the topic of antimicrobial resistance, or AMR, which luckily no one else has yet mentioned. I was relieved that paragraph...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (9 Jan 2019)

Lord O'Neill of Gatley: ...UK productivity just since 2008, compared to the pre-crisis trend, accumulates to being between 15% and 20%. This is larger than any single estimate that I am yet to see about even the hardest of Brexits, although my own hunch is that if we went down that ridiculous path, it would probably feel like it in the first year. Our trade position should not be an end in itself but part of an...

Economy: Spring Statement - Motion to Take Note (15 Mar 2018)

Lord O'Neill of Gatley: ..., if going forward the GDP growth that it suggests is as weak for the rest of the period, it will turn out to be worst extended period for 70 years. Is this realistic? Perhaps it is. But, beyond Brexit, it seems that there are some creeping better signs, not least the recent evidence of a pick-up in productivity. There are some credible reasons, some of which I have outlined in this place...

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (4 Dec 2017)

Lord O'Neill of Gatley: ...thought. Looking forward, if this global environment were to remain so benign, it might help us more than many of us have previously thought with some of the challenges ahead, including of course Brexit. As I have stated in this House before, as important as I believe Brexit to be, we have bigger challenges here in the UK which, if addressed, could actually help diminish the dilemmas of...

EU: Transition Deal - Question for Short Debate (19 Oct 2017)

Lord O'Neill of Gatley: My Lords, I now find myself wondering whether the most passionate advocates of Brexit, some of whose arguments we have just heard the noble Lord illustrate, are secretly in favour of a second referendum on the original question. If not, I cannot see any of their logic. Brexit with no trade deal—the ultimate consequence of no transition—is anywhere from worrying to extremely bad. I shall...

Autumn Statement: Economy - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2016)

Lord O'Neill of Gatley: ...of policy towards the latter relative to the former. Surely policymakers must address this startling gap in the years to come, especially with the likely challenging productivity issues related to Brexit. We need to do more to create productive opportunities for those starting their working lives, rather than for those towards or at the end of theirs. That brings me to the third issue,...

Finance Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (13 Sep 2016)

Lord O'Neill of Gatley: ...is the OBR. The noble Lord, Lord Darling, did not have to live with the structure we were presented with in the OBR. Its assessment of the short and particularly the medium-term consequences of Brexit and, in parallel, of long-term productivity will have, as always, a significant bearing on the circumstances in which the Chancellor will be able to make his Autumn Statement. I turn to my...

Finance Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (13 Sep 2016)

Lord O'Neill of Gatley: ...before the referendum on our membership of the European Union. It is still too early to tell what the economic impact will be. While we are well-placed to take advantage of the opportunities that Brexit creates, there will be some difficult times ahead. Undoubtedly the consequences of the referendum will influence the context for economic policy in future years. I am sure that the...
