Written Answers — Department for Transport: Ferries: Contracts (4 Nov 2019)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: As part of preparations for a potential No Deal Brexit in March, the Government procured additional freight capacity to support the continued flow of Category 1 goods. When Article 50 was extended, £51.4m was paid to terminate contracts. The Government ran a new procurement exercise to secure freight capacity as part of preparations for Brexit on 31 October, entering into contracts for the...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Holyhead Port (29 Oct 2019)

Draft Heavy Commercial Vehicles in Kent (No. 1) Order 2019 - Motion to Approve (7 Oct 2019)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ..., but I have one here. There is a document, which has been available for quite some time, and there is also a shortened version. This document, Transporting Goods Between the UK and EU in a No-deal Brexit: Guidance for Hauliers, is available on pop-up stands as well as on GOV.UK. On the basis of my answers to these questions, and that I will write, I hope noble Lords will see fit to...

Draft Heavy Commercial Vehicles in Kent (No. 1) Order 2019 - Motion to Approve (7 Oct 2019)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...is what the Government are trying to do today. As has been mentioned by a number of noble Lords, these powers are available in the event that there is congestion at the border caused by a no-deal Brexit, but they can also be used for bad weather and/or industrial action. The noble Viscount, Lord Hanworth, noted the use of Operation Stack in 2015. I, too, was unfortunate enough to drive...

Draft Heavy Commercial Vehicles in Kent (No. 1) Order 2019 - Motion to Approve (7 Oct 2019)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: The noble Lord is right: if there are impacts from a no-deal Brexit, we expect them to fall away. The issue here is the readiness of traders and hauliers—the former obviously being more important, as they are responsible for the documentation. If a haulier is caught by this system and has to go back to the end of the queue—for not being trader-ready and not having ready the right...

Draft Heavy Commercial Vehicles in Kent (No. 1) Order 2019 - Motion to Approve (7 Oct 2019)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...the Port of Dover or the Channel Tunnel is significantly restricted. We are prepared to use Brock should cross-Channel disruption occur because of the UK’s departure from the EU in a no-deal Brexit, although it could, of course, also be deployed as a result of disruption resulting from bad weather or industrial action. These orders are a vital part of Operation Brock, as they will...

Passenger and Goods Vehicles (Tachographs) (Amendment etc.) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (26 Sep 2019)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...be driven to a different location, with further driving prohibited until the issue is resolved. This draft instrument also includes provisions that would come into effect at the point of a no-deal Brexit, although it is not a no-deal SI in itself. This draft instrument amends further the changes being made to the Transport Act 1968 on EU exit day by the Drivers’ Hours and Tachographs...

Maritime Security - Question (5 Sep 2019)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: I am not entirely sure on what evidence the noble Baroness suggests that £9 million is not sufficient. It is the case that as Brexit happens and we leave the European Union we will look at our EEZ. We will be responsible for all vessels in our EEZ and it is likely that we will have to take a closer watch of what is going on within our coastal waters. It is right that we have fewer assets to...

Brexit: No-deal Ferry Contracts - Private Notice Question (1 May 2019)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: I believe that the money will have come from the no-deal Brexit funds made available from the Treasury. If that is not the case, I will of course write to the noble Lord. I did not say that these contracts would not be repeated. The situation is that no deal is still the legal default, so what is going to happen next is pretty much what happened last time—

Air Quality (Taxis and Private Hire Vehicles Database) (England and Wales) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (11 Apr 2019)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...remit of the SI today—as is always the case. Taking the questions in order, I will go first to those from the noble Lord, Lord Adonis. It is a pleasure to have him join an SI debate—and a non-Brexit one at that—and I welcome the important questions he has raised. “Regulatory triage assessment” is, yes, a very government type of term. It is similar to an impact assessment, but...

Geo-Blocking Regulation (Revocation) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (9 Apr 2019)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...that I have done—and there have been plenty—this one feels fairly straightforward, in that the plan B not to revoke it would not have been fair. I was not expecting that today would be a mini-Brexit debate on the benefits or otherwise of leaving. I thought we had come to an end of those for the time being, but we had one none the less, which is, as always, a pleasure. I am happy to...

International Women’s Day - Motion to Take Note (7 Mar 2019)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...it deserves. We will be back the same time next year, but earlier in the day. I have to cover education, employment, women’s leadership—particularly in public and civic life—discrimination, Brexit, the tragedy of violence against women and international considerations in 20 minutes. I do not have a hope. Therefore, if I cannot do justice to the questions asked by noble Lords, I will...

International Women’s Day - Motion to Take Note (7 Mar 2019)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...and its ratification. I believe that, if the domestic abuse Bill is passed, it will ratify the Istanbul convention. I have 30 seconds to cover public service, recognition of great leaders and Brexit. Well, Brexit is out of the window. We have had so many interesting speeches today on the representation of women. So many Members of your Lordships’ House, despite not being elected...

Honda in Swindon - Statement (19 Feb 2019)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...it is out of the question that one or two more might see that it is the way forward for our country. As I have said, and say again, the Government’s position is that we do not want a no-deal Brexit. I agree with the noble Lord that there are certain members of my own party who also need to look very carefully at the potential outcomes. They need to weigh up the options and decide accordingly.

Honda in Swindon - Statement (19 Feb 2019)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...many thanks—but others I felt were a little harsh. I hope to explain why. Let us start with the B-word. Although the leadership of Honda in Japan, Europe and the UK have specifically ruled out Brexit as the cause of this announcement, it is worth considering the impact of Brexit on the wider automotive sector. Of course, it remains our top priority to leave the EU with a deal that is...

Honda in Swindon - Statement (19 Feb 2019)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...in this House of all parties have worked hard over the past three years to make the case for investment in Britain to investors in this country and around the world, despite the uncertainty that Brexit has put into the assessments of investors in Japan and around the world. We have secured investments during this time from Nissan, Toyota, Geely, BMW, PSA, Aston Martin, Williams and many...

Small Business Index - Question (18 Feb 2019)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...are in contact with many of the large employers around the country. The news was breaking as we came into the Chamber. We have had discussions with many of the large employers as we go through this Brexit period. On the noble Baroness’s question about Brexit, there is a significant amount of guidance for businesses on GOV.UK around whether there is a no-deal Brexit. Companies can sign up...

Brexit: Sheep Farmers - Question (22 May 2018)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: My Lords, Brexit provides us with a perfect opportunity to review our subsidies. The vision in our consultation for the new English agricultural policy is around public money for the delivery of public good, and the uplands have the potential to benefit from new environmental land management schemes as they deliver a great deal of public good for the environment and landscape—for example,...

Brexit: Sheep Farmers - Question (22 May 2018)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: My Lords, we are confident of getting a deal on Brexit, which is very important to remember. Obviously assessments are going on all the time as new data becomes available. Independent assessments have also been made, such as, for example, the Impacts of Alternative Post-Brexit Trade Agreements on UK Agriculture. This assessment covered the sheep sector and highlighted the importance of...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (1 Mar 2018)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...that the very nature of safeguards—a critical non-proliferation measure—is international by design. The power this amendment relates to therefore goes beyond “fixing” issues arising from Brexit. At its core is the need for the new safeguards regime to be able to adapt to the inevitable international changes that are made—for example, IAEA recommendations that the UK adopts, or...
