UK Trade and Investment Strategy — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (23 Jul 2019)

Julia Lopez: ...after three years in the back room, showing how the right trade and investment strategy can deliver prosperity to the people we represent. Formed straight after the referendum as one of the new Brexit Departments, DIT has faced the ongoing challenge of being excluded from the Brexit process, which has been driven by the Department for Exiting the European Union, the Cabinet Office and No....

UK Trade and Investment Strategy — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (23 Jul 2019)

Julia Lopez: ...in its place, but the hon. Gentleman will be well aware that there is much concern that the backstop will tie us into rules and regulations that hamper our ability to achieve the aims that the Brexit process was intended to achieve. Inevitably, the dilemma I outlined has constrained DIT’s ability to determine what might be offered to non-EU trading partners in any roll-over agreements or...

UK Trade and Investment Strategy — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (23 Jul 2019)

Julia Lopez: ..., and why is DIT being squeezed out of this important conversation? I have also heard surprising reports about how little the Government have utilised our expensive chief trade negotiator in our Brexit negotiations. The under-utilisation of DIT’s resource has been a strategic mistake. In the next 100 days, we must prioritise the close working, if not the merger, of DIT and DExEU, such...

Leaving the EU: Extension Period Negotiations — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (22 May 2019)

Julia Lopez: ...of our future relationship with the EU or of our new role in the world to underpin Government strategy. In the absence of that vision, we have become increasingly desperate just to deliver the word Brexit, even if an unholy fudge to obtain our withdrawal binds us into the very systems that the electorate rejected while denying our voice within them. I sought this debate not to argue about...

Leaving the EU: Extension Period Negotiations — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (22 May 2019)

Julia Lopez: ...this absence is reflected in Friday’s National Audit Office report on future trading policy, which effectively said that the UK will not get what it wants if it does not know what it wants. The Brexit vote has often been misinterpreted as a misty-eyed reflex to return us to Britain past, but I see it instead as a judgment about the future—about where the world is going and whether the...

Future International Trade Opportunities (1 May 2019)

Julia Lopez: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Rosindell. I am sure that, given your passion about Brexit, you would like to speak in the debate yourself. I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for North Warwickshire (Craig Tracey) for securing the debate. What a refreshing change it is to talk about opportunity rather than threat—it is just a shame that we do not have longer to...

Future International Trade Opportunities (1 May 2019)

Julia Lopez: ..., the thing that sparked most concern among Japanese investors was the nationalisation of industries under a potential future Labour Government. That caused greater alarm than any discussion about Brexit. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that nationalisation may cause wider worry among international investors?

EU Trade Agreements: Replication (13 Feb 2019)

Julia Lopez: It is my understanding, and the Secretary of State has referred to this as well, that the EU has not permitted Turkey to engage in talks with the UK on continuity of trade post Brexit under the terms of its goods-only customs agreement with that country. It is the kind of arrangement that I understand we would fall into under the backstop. Will the Secretary of State please update the House...

Points of Order: [7th Allotted Day] (11 Jan 2019)

Julia Lopez: ...of step with the wishes of the British people. With hindsight, that instinct was simply an extension of the worry that sat deep in my stomach on election night in 2017, when it became clear that Brexit would have to be delivered by a minority Government in a Parliament that has never fully reconciled itself to leaving the EU, in spite of manifesto promises by both main parties. The direct...

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

Julia Lopez: ...it would be implemented by those in power. Now I am an MP, I believe ever more, as I look across at a continent where people’s genuine frustrations are translating into political extremism, that Brexit gives British politicians the chance to shape today what could prove an uncontrollable democratic crisis tomorrow. After my election, I supported the Prime Minister’s original Brexit...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Nov 2018)

Julia Lopez: ...bound into the EU regulatory system you will not be able to have a significant global trade strategy”. Will my right hon. Friend advise whether this might be one of the prices to pay for her Brexit deal?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Julia Lopez: ..., we need to be confident that the Home Office is providing the funding that police officers need to meet their increasingly complex workload. Finally, I would like to issue a word of caution about Brexit. It has been suggested in the approach to the Budget that any failure by MPs to back the Government’s eventual Brexit deal will jeopardise our ability to turn on the spending taps in...

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

Julia Lopez: ...serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hanson. I appreciate the fact that my hon. Friend the Member for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland (Mr Clarke) has injected some much needed energy into post-Brexit planning. Brexit should be a moment of creative opportunity, when we begin to tailor our nation better to fit our citizens’ needs and ambitions. Leaving the EU was never going to be...

Brexit, Science and Innovation: Global Britain and the International Rules-based Order (6 Sep 2018)

Julia Lopez: ...positive case for a global Britain. I am also grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Tonbridge and Malling (Tom Tugendhat) for speaking with such passion about this extremely timely subject. In Brexit, we are managing the most momentous political change of my lifetime. This period of renewal is taking place in an era when the effectiveness of international governance structures is...

Brexit, Science and Innovation: Global Britain and the International Rules-based Order (6 Sep 2018)

Julia Lopez: Yes. I do not want this to descend into a Brexit debate. I was a floating voter during the referendum. I very much hope that having voted to leave the European Union, we are not seen as having an isolationist instinct, because my hon. Friend is right—we share a great number of values, and those relationships will be extremely important as we go forward in an increasingly uncertain world.

Brexit, Science and Innovation: Global Britain and the International Rules-based Order (6 Sep 2018)

Julia Lopez: ...to sustain its existing network of operations, so while the FCO may have the grand trappings and the historical clout, it can at times feel rather hollow when it is DFID that has the cash. Brexit should provide us with the perfect opportunity to refocus our outward-facing Departments and infuse our international work with strategic intent.

Brexit, Science and Innovation: Global Britain and the International Rules-based Order (6 Sep 2018)

Julia Lopez: ...to our advantage. Our German counterparts, particularly in the CDU, have been very wise in using the Stiftung model to advance their nation’s political and economic interests. Is there a post-Brexit case for a strong equivalent body here to ensure that key political relationships are kept warm whether a party is in government or in opposition? Too often, those relationships die when a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 2018)

Julia Lopez: I do not consider myself to be a Brexiteer, but two years ago, when asked to make a choice about the future direction of the country that I love, I voted to leave the European Union, knowing that it would be difficult but believing that our nation could make it work. I was not alone, and I have now been joined by those who voted remain and wish to respect our democracy. Does my right hon....

Leaving the EU: Future Trade Remedies (17 Apr 2018)

Julia Lopez: ...thank my hon. Friend the Member for Stoke-on-Trent South (Jack Brereton) for securing this debate on future trade remedies. He is ahead of the curve on this issue, because amid the wrangling over Brexit we have rather overlooked the profile that this issue will have. I believe that it will become ever more pressing as we chart a new path beyond the EU. It is therefore important at this...

United States Tariffs: Steel and Aluminium (12 Mar 2018)

Julia Lopez: ...or engage in retaliatory measures with key trading partners. How will my right hon. Friend be using the President’s announcement to make the case for open frictionless trade with the EU post Brexit and to assert the UK’s position as a leading proponent of free trade in the 21st century?
