Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (22 Oct 2019)

Baroness Bull: ...importing specialist freelance talent and in which even the brightest and best can earn less than the £30,000 salary threshold proposed in the immigration White Paper. Its number one priority post Brexit is continued and reciprocal mobility to protect the sector’s success and the substantial contribution it makes to the economy, exports and employment across the UK. Given this, perhaps...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2019)

Baroness Bull: ...appropriate level”. Level playing field provisions are downgraded from the legal status of the withdrawal agreement to the non-binding political declaration. With so much distrust built up over Brexit, it is hardly surprising that there is reluctance to trust areas like labour rights and consumer and environmental standards to a political declaration with no teeth; or to believe the...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Second Reading (5 Sep 2019)

Baroness Bull: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Balfe. We have before us a Bill concerned with avoiding a no-deal Brexit and, like the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Leeds, who is not in his place, I have been taking note of a timely and helpful report from the academics at the UK in a Changing Europe research unit about the issues, implications and impacts of leaving the EU...

Brexit: Appointment of Joint Committee - Motion to Agree (3 Jul 2019)

Baroness Bull: ...and regulations that underpin trading across the EU. Services account for 80% of UK GDP and four out of every five jobs across the country. They are the goose that lays the golden eggs, yet in the Brexit story they are treated like Cinderella. Of course, we would adapt in the long term to whatever changes resulted from a new relationship with the EU. Businesses with large reserves and...

Trade Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 24 (13 Mar 2019)

Baroness Bull: ...I believe that it is vital to preserve mobility rights and, in doing so, protect some of the UK’s most productive sectors. I have noted before the relative silence on trade in services in the Brexit conversation. Attention has been focused on the at-the-border issues associated with trade, rather than the more complex behind-the-border issues of domestic rules, regulations and...

Further Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (27 Feb 2019)

Baroness Bull: ..., Lord Callanan, is surely right when he suggests there can be nothing we have overlooked. But in searching those 280,000 words, I was astonished to find just 80 covering the specific effects of Brexit on women. It is 99 years, almost to the day, since the first woman spoke for the first time in Parliament and yet over seven days of transcripts, the word “women” appears only 13 times....

EU Withdrawal - Motion to Take Note (13 Feb 2019)

Baroness Bull: ...about the migration flows that result from it”. Even the Sun reported a YouGov poll showing that eight out of 10 leave voters want to welcome the same number of doctors and nurses to the UK after Brexit, with more than half keen to welcome even more. One in five leave voters wanted more social workers, too. It was the high-salaried bankers they wanted turned away. So much for the...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (2nd Day) (10 Jan 2019)

Baroness Bull: ...brings in the areas of human and civil rights, cross-border families, travel, work, education, and trade. The Ipsos MORI poll lists—in order—the issues of greatest public concern today. After Brexit, they are: the NHS, poverty, crime, housing, the economy and education. Leaving the EU will not solve any of these. As the noble Lord, Lord Horam, pointed out in December, the Brexit vote...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (1st Day) (Continued) (5 Dec 2018)

Baroness Bull: ..., short of exceptional, freelancers who are required on an occasional basis, often at short notice, and provide vital flexibility, especially to small businesses. Even in the event of an orderly Brexit, there is a real risk that UK employers will not have access to the workforce they need, in either the short or medium term. No deal would “bring down the shutters overnight”, to quote...

Brexit: Negotiations - Motion to Take Note (20 Nov 2018)

Baroness Bull: ...when there is still no detail on what they are planning for? The Prime Minister said, as we have heard repeatedly tonight, that there are three choices left to the UK: no deal, this deal or no Brexit at all. No deal would have devastating effects on the creative industries and higher education—sectors that earn the UK billions of pounds each year and make us the envy of the world. No...

Arts: Impact of Brexit - Motion to Take Note (11 Oct 2018)

Baroness Bull: My Lords, with so many critical issues still to resolve, some people might ask where the arts should come on the Brexit agenda. Let me address that head-on by clarifying what I mean when I talk about “the arts”. Yes, I mean our world-class institutions, dancers, musicians, writers and composers, about whom we have heard so much today, but I also mean the 90% of arts organisations that are...
