European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 48 (16 Jan 2020)

Lord Greaves: ...concertinaed timetable makes that difficult but that is the way the House of Lords normally works. This is a special and unusual Bill and we are in unusual times, but it is an indication of the way Brexit has divided not only the country—almost down the middle—but this House and every institution in the country. I believe that there is a fundamental lack of trust here. Perhaps I am...

Health and Social Care (16 Jan 2020)

Edward Argar: ...a lot more from all three of them in this House and in national politics. The election has broken the deadlock in this House, giving our country a majority Government who are not just getting Brexit done but repaying the trust placed in us by the public to deliver the people’s priorities. The Opposition Front Bench may speak about their commitment to the NHS, but this Government and this...

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ..., which essentially have the same effect. Under the Bill there will be no extra sifting procedure of the sort that we established in the 2018 Act, which was able to act as a further check on the Brexit statutory instruments that were laid using the negative procedure. Quite a large number of instruments were recommended for upgrade to the affirmative procedure, and the process helped to...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 43 (16 Jan 2020)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...1532 Act were restraining were to the Pope in Rome, rather than to any political institution. It has often struck me as odd and eccentric that several of the most ardent English nationalists and Brexiteers are right-wing Catholics, some of them converts, who regard the current Pope critically as tending towards a dangerous liberalism rather than the dogmatic orthodoxy that they prefer....

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 42 (16 Jan 2020)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Whitty, and members of his committee, including the noble Baronesses, Lady Randerson and Lady Noakes, for their very thorough report in May 2019, Brexit: Road, Rail and Maritime Transport.

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 39 (16 Jan 2020)

Lord Lea of Crondall: be pedantic; we both know where we are, but that is what the amendment says. To conclude, I hope that the Minister and the Government will generally reflect on the fact that, if they want to get Brexit real rather than just saying “Get Brexit done” as a slogan, they will have to see how a framework can be approached which will have certain common principles that will then be...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 41 (16 Jan 2020)

Lord Wigley: ...of the potential outcomes of negotiations so that we may know where we are heading. First, over the past three years, numerous prophecies have been made as to the economic implications of Brexit, most of which were based on guess-work at the time as to what would be the outcome. All those guesstimates are now largely irrelevant. We now know three basic dimensions of our way forward. We...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 38 (16 Jan 2020)

Lord Storey: My Lords, the referendum on Brexit shows that young people in particular want to remain in Europe. Now that we are leaving, it is important that young people’s opportunities to learn, study and exchange in Europe are an opportunity to bring young people back together again. Nobody can doubt the value and importance of Erasmus+. Every year, through the Erasmus programme, 17,000 UK university...

Northern Ireland Executive Formation - Statement (16 Jan 2020)

Lord Murphy of Torfaen: ..., to a board that represents the reserved powers of the Government here in Westminster and, in this case, in Belfast. Perhaps the Minister could elaborate on that. We have of course been discussing Brexit in this House for some days. Only yesterday morning, we looked at the issue of Brexit and devolution. I am glad that there will now be a Northern Ireland Executive at the table dealing...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 37 (16 Jan 2020)

Lord Whitty: noble friend Lord Teverson—or, rather, the noble Lord, Lord Teverson, who on occasion is my friend—has provoked me. One reason I did not speak at Second Reading is that I now recognise that Brexit is going to happen on 31 January and I am feeling emotionally negative about it. I shall not be joining any celebrations, even if they raise the money for Big Ben to bong.

Northern Ireland Executive Formation (16 Jan 2020)

Julian Smith: an injection of money for this talks process: £1 billion of new money and a guaranteed £1 billion of Barnett-based funding up front. We then have the UK Budget in March, and we have a deal for Brexit. The key task for the Executive is to focus on their priorities. The hon. Gentleman referred to the programme for Government in appendix 2, which clearly states that the “parties agree...

Business of the House (16 Jan 2020)

Natalie Elphicke: ...right hon. Friend make time available for a debate on the roads infrastructure of east Kent? It is welcome news that the Operation Brock contraflow on the M20 is being dismantled, as we are getting Brexit done. However, the dualling of the A2 needs to be completed and the Whitfield roundabout is so overloaded that villagers are up in arms. The lorries travelling through our port are the...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Brexit (16 Jan 2020)

Scottish Parliament: Citizens’ Rights (16 Jan 2020)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...if we were an independent country and able to co-operate, within the European Union, in our own right. The Scottish Government will use all the powers at our disposal to mitigate the impact of Brexit, as we have been doing, for example, by providing support and advice to European nationals who have been treated utterly shamefully by the United Kingdom Government. We will continue to...
