European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 35 (15 Jan 2020)

Viscount Trenchard: ...and consumer standards. Is he not aware that it was a manifesto commitment of the Conservative Party, to which all Conservative candidates signed up, that the Government would get a proper Brexit done and that we would leave the customs union and the single market? It is essential that we do that to have the flexibility we need to develop and maintain our own independent trade policy, and...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 34 (15 Jan 2020)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: ...who will lose those options. The noble Baroness, Lady Ludford, talked about where we are going. What we are trying to do here—collectively, all of us—is to end up with the least worst Brexit, and the best possible mobility that we can have will ensure the least worst Brexit.

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 33 (15 Jan 2020)

Lord Paddick: ...months’ time and we are concerned that our law enforcement agencies will be handicapped as a consequence of losing some, if not all, of these EU mechanisms, as the National Crime Agency lead for Brexit told us in a briefing a few years ago. I am grateful for the correction on the modified European arrest warrant arrangements with Norway and Iceland, which apparently came into effect on...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 32 (15 Jan 2020)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: where we were. This is a moving target. I do not want to be critical about this in any sense because it is right that we keep things moving and do not stick on where we were, in some sort of pre-Brexit mode. We must move forward. Life is changing, attitudes are changing and technology is moving forward at a huge pace. We must be ready to anticipate that but it must not be at the expense...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 31 (15 Jan 2020)

Baroness Parminter: ...of Worcester, who is not in his place, spoke movingly, in the debate on the amendment from the noble Lord, Lord Dubs, about the Government needing to set out their vision for Britain in the post-Brexit world. He articulated it very well. What is the Government’s vision for Britain? If they want Britain to be a world leader in animal welfare, they have to demonstrably deliver that through...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 30 (15 Jan 2020)

...will take to seek the timely passage of such legislation before IP completion day.”Member’s explanatory statementThis amendment would require the Government to bring forward versions of the Brexit legislation published but not passed during the last two parliamentary sessions, as well as requiring Secretaries of State to outline how this legislation will be passed before the end of the...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 27 (15 Jan 2020)

Lord Scriven: ...that is the British way, I do not believe that those are British values, and I do not believe that that is what the British public will support. I will end with what Robin Walker said when he was a Brexit Minister in the other place. He said that this was a matter of principle. I agree: it is a matter of principle—and it is time to put principle into action and stop the fake negotiation.

A Green Industrial Revolution (15 Jan 2020)

Alan Brown: ...the domestic car production industry in the UK to allow it to capitalise on this market? The Government were very good at making behind-the-doors, closed deals when it came to advance talks about Brexit, so what are they doing to ensure that these companies can adapt to electric car manufacturing?

Criminal Records Notifications Disclosure - Private Notice Question (15 Jan 2020)

Lord Bethell: My noble friend is right, and police collaboration after Brexit is one of the big priorities of this Government. That is why in the implementation period, we will be discussing this with the EU and our partners. The political declaration envisages a relationship spanning operational and judicial co-operation, data-driven law enforcement and multilateral co-operation through EU agencies. Those...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 21 (15 Jan 2020)

Lord Newby: ...idea ourselves”? Are the Government going to express no thoughts about what might be preferable? Have they had no thoughts? Have they not thought about it before now? In every other aspect of Brexit, the Government have clear, dogmatic, unwavering thoughts. On this single one, they appear to have no thoughts at all. Is that not strange?

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 18 (15 Jan 2020)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...been involved in developing policy know, if you do not discuss beforehand how it is going to be implemented, the chances are that the policy will not work. Given the importance of ensuring that Brexit works for all parts of the UK, including the devolved nations, and given the concerns of the devolved Administrations that they are being excluded from vital talks—as we have heard, an...

Written Answers — Wales Office: *No heading* (15 Jan 2020)

Simon Hart: The Withdrawal Agreement allows us to get Brexit done and leave the European Union in a smooth and orderly manner at the end of the month. The Government will maximise the opportunities of Brexit for Wales and the whole of the UK, taking back control of our money, our laws, our trade and our borders.

Wales: Shared Prosperity Fund (15 Jan 2020)

David Jones: May I, too, warmly welcome my right hon. Friend and my hon. Friend the Minister to their positions? The shared prosperity fund represents a unique opportunity for all parts of Wales to benefit from Brexit. Does my right hon. Friend therefore agree that it is essential that in the design of the architecture of the fund, the priorities of local authorities and the interests of the people they...

Wales: Infrastructure (15 Jan 2020)

Liz Saville-Roberts: ...objectives were to tackle deprivation, poverty and inequality. The old political adage says follow the money. Can the Minister and the new Secretary of State allay my fears that, after this Tory Brexit, the money will not mainly find its way into the constituencies presently coloured blue on the political map of Wales?

Prime Minister: Engagements (15 Jan 2020)

Ian Blackford: ...and completely unsustainable. He has shown utter contempt for Scottish democracy, for Scotland’s Parliament and for Scotland’s people. Does he accept that, by ignoring Scotland, by imposing Brexit and by his pursuance of cruel and punishing policies, he is strengthening the case for Scottish independence?

Prime Minister: Engagements (15 Jan 2020)

Helen Grant: Given the Prime Minister’s post-Brexit vision for an outward-looking, global Britain and given Africa’s huge potential for trade and investment, will he update the House on the Government’s plans for next week’s UK-African investment summit?

Scottish Parliament: Women in Agriculture (15 Jan 2020)

Mairi Gougeon: ...equal opportunities and to encourage more women into agriculture. That is not only the right thing to do but critical to building the resilience of agricultural businesses that are facing a post-Brexit future. Implementation work has already begun. We are piloting unconscious bias training for agricultural organisations, and we are offering training to women in agriculture to develop their...

Scottish Parliament: Budget (Rural Economy) (15 Jan 2020)

Fergus Ewing: ...European Union common agricultural policy funding. Over the past three years, I have repeatedly pressed the UK Government—notably Michael Gove—to honour the pledge that it made during the Brexit referendum to at least match EU funding post-Brexit. After three years of my persistent questioning, it belatedly confirmed funding for direct payments for 2020. However, serious gaps in its...

Scottish Parliament: Meat Products (US Regulatory Standards) (15 Jan 2020)

Fergus Ewing: ...Frankly, if cheap imports from countries that do not observe our high standards flood the market, that could well undermine the meat sector in Scotland. Therefore, that is one of the most important Brexit issues that has not yet been resolved, but which must be resolved. I note that Theresa Villiers gave certain assurances on the issue when she spoke at the Oxford farming conference. Time...

Scottish Parliament: World Wetlands Day 2020 (15 Jan 2020)

Emma Harper: ...the existence of some of our endangered species, including natterjacks, and for supporting continued biodiversity. Therefore, in closing, I seek assurances from the minister that, in the light of Brexit and the potential loss of EU environmental protection laws, we in Scotland will do all that we can to protect our woodlands—I mean, our wetlands.
