European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 18 (21 Jan 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: ...in January 2021. Of course I trust the Minister and have huge respect for her genuine commitment to children, but what I am concerned about is urgency. Given everything else that goes along with Brexit, it would be very easy for this Government, intentionally or unintentionally, not to have a priority regarding these children, a point made by the right reverend Prelate. What we need is to...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 17 (21 Jan 2020)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: ...framework programmes and those funded by structural funds has been particularly important, as the Welsh Government have demonstrated in their publication on research and development after Brexit. Whether and how the UK, and therefore Wales, can access these funds will be determined by the negotiations with the EU. The second aspect—whether there will be any reciprocal arrangements in...

Growth Strategy — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (21 Jan 2020)

John Redwood: ...pity that Labour Members have yet again chosen to completely misrepresent my article in the Financial Times. Had they read the article, they would have seen that it did not mention the word “Brexit”, because it was not about Brexit. At the time I was writing that article, as today, I said consistently that Brexit offers lots of opportunities that can make us better off, if my right...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Leaving the EU: Businesses in Scotland (21 Jan 2020)

Andrea Leadsom: The Scottish Government received almost £100 million to help to prepare for Brexit in the run-up to 31 October last year. I am delighted that we now have a good deal with the European Union, so we will be leaving the EU at the end of January, but the implementation period will mean that nothing changes for businesses until the end of 2020. We are working hard on our future trading...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Support for Small Businesses (21 Jan 2020)

Rupa Huq: I thank the Minister for her response. I was at a local business breakfast last week. Alongside the predictable issues of late payment, Brexit-readiness and parking, which I would have expected, I was surprised to hear naturally Conservative people lambasting the Government for refocusing priorities northward post-election, which they see as quite shameless and political. How can the...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (21 Jan 2020)

Sarah Jones: Westfield is set to open a fabulous new shopping centre in Croydon, but the French owner of Westfield, Unibail-Rodamco, is worried about business rates, the state of retail and the impact of Brexit. Will the Secretary of State please meet representatives of Westfield and Unibail-Rodamco to talk about some of those concerns?

Scottish Parliament: Scottish National Investment Bank Bill: Stage 3 (21 Jan 2020)

Derek Mackay: ...the advisory group, and amendment 17 links the group’s remit to the bank’s objects, as set out in section 2. Amendments 26 and 27 are fixes to how the bill refers to state aid in the light of Brexit developments since the bill was introduced. They require Government financing of the bank to be done in accordance with whatever state aid regime emerges to replace the European Union’s....

Scottish Parliament: Robert Burns in the Scottish Economy (21 Jan 2020)

Willie Coffey: ...would be a magnificent step forward in the marketing and promotion of Ayrshire as a first-choice destination for people coming to Scotland. Perhaps inevitably, even in the context of Robert Burns, Brexit rears its ugly head, with the Glasgow university report warning that we can expect a decline in the number of European Union residents working in the tourism sector, and warning of the...

Lowestoft Tidal Flood Barrier (20 Jan 2020)

Peter Aldous: ...flood barrier, which will provide much needed protection for many homes and businesses in Lowestoft. Moreover, it will act as a catalyst for inward investment in the offshore wind sector, the post-Brexit fishing industry and the town centre, where the high street is under considerable pressure at present and businesses need reassurance that their investments will not be at risk from...

Economy and Jobs (20 Jan 2020)

Marcus Fysh: ...ourselves to make that difference for people. We now have a huge opportunity and a mandate for radical change. I think that a lot of people wanted to see that change in their lives when we had the Brexit vote as well, and we have a duty to make that a reality for them. I was really proud of the people of Yeovil for choosing an optimistic and forward-looking approach, rather than the...

Lord Smith of Finsbury: ...part in exchanges across Europe, it enriches their education and fulfils their desire to have the best possible experience of life and the world. One of the things that distresses me most about the Brexit process we have embarked upon is that it fundamentally undermines what I thought our country was all about: having an international spirit and opening our arms to the rest of the world....

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 15 (20 Jan 2020)

Lord Bowness: .... In Committee, I appealed to the Government to recognise that many people remain concerned about the nature of our future arrangements with the European Union. This is not about for or against Brexit but about the future. The Government appear to want us to take everything on trust, but we need to know in advance not the details of their negotiation but the approach they will take in...

Lord Pannick: ...can decide. These amendments raise issues of considerable constitutional concern and importance. As the noble Lord, Lord Beith, said, they have absolutely nothing to do with the merits of Brexit, the terms on which we leave the EU or the timetable for Brexit. It is, I suggest, our constitutional responsibility, when a Government bring forward a provision as constitutionally objectionable...
