Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (16 May 2019)

Alex Norris: ..., and EU nationals on the academic staff and the student body make an extraordinary contribution to those schools. Can the Secretary of State give me a categorical assurance that, however Brexit is resolved, there will be no extra burdens impairing the contribution of EU nationals to those institutions?

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Funding: Seasonal Agricultural Workers Scheme — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (12 Feb 2019)

Alex Norris: ...a particularly urban part of one of the UK’s biggest cities, so why do I want to talk about agriculture? That is because the issue, as much as it is about food and food security, especially after Brexit, is about slavery. Since my election in 2017, I have been proud to play my part in highlighting, combating and working to eradicate the appalling scourge of modern slavery. I work...

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Funding: Seasonal Agricultural Workers Scheme — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (12 Feb 2019)

Alex Norris: I agree with the hon. Gentleman. After Brexit, we have a chance to reform our migration system, but we have to ensure that we still meet the needs of our growing industries. I am about to highlight the fact that the soft fruit production industry has doubled in size over the past two decades. We have to move and to keep pace with that, building in the regulation to make things work.

Leaving the EU — [David Hanson in the Chair] (14 Jan 2019)

Alex Norris: ...that as a preamble because when talking to friends in a more relaxed setting over Christmas—this may have happened to other hon. Members as well—people would try desperately not to talk about Brexit, but eventually somebody would ask why it is taking so long. This debate, and the petitions that sit behind it, show precisely why it is taking so long. The subject is difficult and...

Fireworks: Public Sales — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (26 Nov 2018)

Alex Norris: I enjoy taking part in e-petition debates, because although our world is governed by the parliamentary timetable, which often relates to Brexit, e-petitions are a good insight into what people are talking about and what they care about—they reflect thoughts that have captured the moment. Petitioners would not get to 100,000 signatures by getting 100 every day for 1,000 days. That is not how...

Universal Credit Roll-out: Nottingham (14 Nov 2018)

Alex Norris: ...Vernon Coaker) and I recently attended a meeting with Advice Nottingham. We were grateful to hear the direct experiences of those who give advice and those living in the benefits system. Beyond “Brexit”, “hostile environment” must be the defining political term of the year. I contend that the term applies not just to the Home Office’s immigration policies and Windrush, but to...

Public Bill Committee: Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]: Public register of beneficial ownership of UK property by companies and other legal entities registered outside the UK (6 Mar 2018)

Alex Norris: ...good statement is a good way to make a down-payment on that. That is not the point I rise to make, however—proud of her though I am. The new clause comes back to our place in the world after Brexit. There are very legitimate anxieties across the House, which are often played out in the Chamber, that post-Brexit, Britain will become the low standards capital of Europe: people will have...

Public Bill Committee: Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]: Public registers of beneficial ownership of companies in the British overseas territories (6 Mar 2018)

Alex Norris: ...and the British Parliament have a really good record in this area. We should be proud that we are world-leading, and we should continue to be so. As we debate this transition Bill, which is a Brexit Bill at its heart, we should ensure that we remain at the forefront. We can have the best fence in the world, but there are limits to what we can do if this goes on to our neighbours’...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords] (20 Feb 2018)

Alex Norris: .... This has now been agreed in principle between the EU and member states, of which we are still one, but it is scheduled for a phased introduction from next year, presumably falling during a post-Brexit transitional period. We have not had a lot of clarity from those on the Treasury Bench about how we will approach this. I hope that we will not see a request for us to concede a boatload of...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill: Transition period (23 Jan 2018)

Alex Norris: ...not be as good as it is today, and I have not heard anyone suggesting that—I do not believe that it would be tolerable. A week is a long time in politics, and three months is a lifetime in the Brexit process—perhaps it just feels like that—but over that period we have seen the Government move on this point. Conservative Members asked how we can talk about this hypothetical idea....

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Alex Norris: During June’s election, I made two promises about Brexit to my electorate, now my constituents: first, that I would respect the outcome of the referendum; and secondly, that I would work to get the best deal for our fine city. Those are promises that I endeavour to keep every day—I am visibly proclaiming that—and I will do so today by voting for Labour’s reasoned amendment and against...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Alex Norris: ...for doing it. People who have watched us today will have seen us at our best, and they should see us do this every day on such important matters. This should be a watershed moment in the Brexit process, too, because we know how much of a struggle that is proving. We are wandering around the continent, drifting from place to place, never quite sure who is with us and who is not. Those are...

Exiting the European Union: UK Workers’ Rights (7 Sep 2017)

Alex Norris: ..., but will Ministers detail today the precise mechanism that they will use to work with trade unions and employers to ensure that Britain does not become the low-standards capital of Europe post-Brexit and to maintain workers’ rights over time?
