European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill: Parliamentary sovereignty (8 Jan 2020)

Patrick Grady: ...Bill, but this House will ride roughshod over it tonight and tomorrow. This is also a power grab by the Executive, because sweeping Henry VIII powers are included in the Bill and in accompanying Brexit legislation that has already been passed. The Brussels bureaucrats—that favourite hit of the Maastricht rebels—are being replaced by the new one-hit wonder of the Whitehall mandarins,...

George Howarth: ...of— (a) the initial one-year period, or (b) the most recent subsequent three-year period.” This new clause would require the Government to publish regular independent reports on the impact of Brexit.

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill: Main power in connection with other separation issues (8 Jan 2020)

Claire Hanna: allowed to speak on the substantive amendments we have tabled on north-south co-operation, the environmental impact and democratic oversight. That will contribute to the very real feeling that Brexit, and this form of Brexit, is being forced on Northern Ireland, which has never given its consent. People will appreciate that the right hon. Gentleman and I come from very different...

Written Answers — Wales Office: Economic Situation: Wales (8 Jan 2020)

Simon Hart: The Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration allows us to get Brexit done and leave the European Union in a smooth and orderly manner on 31 January. 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.

Scottish Parliament: European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (8 Jan 2020)

Michael Russell: ...forward. I also note the observations of the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee with regard to the issues of scrutiny, the exercise of joint powers, the programming of secondary and other Brexit legislation, the ability of UK ministers to legislate in devolved areas and the use of the affirmative procedure. I will respond to each of those issues in more detail in writing, but I am...

Scottish Parliament: Women, Peace and Security (8 Jan 2020)

Emma Harper: ...still, all the powers of a normal independent country. Current political situations, such as the rising tensions that have been caused by President Trump’s Administration in the middle east, or Brexit and the repositioning of the UK on the international stage, are causing much uncertainty and concern. Those political situations leave Scotland in a difficult diplomatic situation, and the...

Scotland: Fiscal Framework Agreement (8 Jan 2020)

Tony Lloyd: May I also welcome you to the Chair, Mr Speaker, and the Secretary of State and the Minister to their positions? The 2016 framework was established before we knew what the impact of Brexit would be. The world has changed. Consideration will now have to be given to what powers pass from Brussels not just to Whitehall and Westminster but to Holyrood. This gives the Secretary of State an...

Scotland: “Scotland’s Right to Choose” (8 Jan 2020)

Drew Hendry: ...will refuse legislative consent for the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill. He said, “that’s something we understand and respect because their position is that they don’t support Brexit.” When consent is refused today, how will the UK Government demonstrate that respect?

Prime Minister: Engagements (8 Jan 2020)

Ian Murray: Happy new year to you and all your staff, Mr Speaker, and everyone in the House. The Prime Minister knows that his “Get Brexit done” slogan was vacuous. He also knows that it is not even the end of the beginning, with no deal firmly back on the table. Will he now acknowledge that any job lost and any impact on British industry as a result of his Brexit policy is firmly at his door?

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc) Act 2019: Section 3(5) - Motion to Take Note (7 Jan 2020)

Lord Murphy of Torfaen: ...the moment is what is going to happen in Belfast this week. It has always been the case that something was going to stop it—a local government election, a European election, a general election, Brexit. Two of those things have happened. Brexit will happen, presumably by the end of this month, although my noble friend Lord Hain has rightly pointed out the complications and difficulties...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (Continued) (7 Jan 2020)

Baroness Goldie: ...on our visions for a global Britain. I think it was the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Durham who made an important point about children and education. Global Britain is about more than just Brexit and free trade, which is why this Government will continue to prioritise fighting for the rights of women and girls. We will stand up for the rights of every girl in the world to something...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill: Rights related to residence: application deadline and temporary protection (7 Jan 2020)

Christine Jardine: ...not be able to. She had lived in Edinburgh most of her life, but she and her parents were from a different part of the European Union and they did not feel secure about what would happen to them if Brexit went ahead. This is the only country that she really knows, and her parents did not know where they stood because of the uncertainty and the difficulties that they saw with the settled...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill: Saving of ECA for implementation period (7 Jan 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: ...a poor trade deal or no trade deal is with regard to the Republic of Ireland. The Republic of Ireland’s GDP growth rate is around 5%. Most financial commentators say that if there was a no-deal Brexit, the Republic of Ireland would go into recession. The EU would not want that. It would not leave the Republic of Ireland behind. The UK has imperatives in striking a deal and so has the EU....

Middle East: Security Update - Statement (7 Jan 2020)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ...had decreased, but we have again stressed the importance of keeping that particular diplomatic door very much open.

She will be reassured by the fact that we have shown consistency with our previous approach and have worked with E3 partners, namely Germany and France, in issuing statements, and...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (7 Jan 2020)

Baroness Ludford: My Lords, the title of this debate must have been designed as an illustration of the Prime Minister’s erroneous claim that Brexit is done, since neither Brexit nor the European Union feature in it. Are we supposed to regard the EU already as part of “foreign affairs”? I have to recognise the reality that Brexit is happening, although I cannot and will not accept it. I think it is a...

Middle East: Security (7 Jan 2020)

Jeremy Hunt: ...between European countries and the United States? The right place to address this issue is the defence and security review that is happening this year, which can show that a newly confident post-Brexit Britain takes its defence obligations seriously.

George Eustice: The UK Government is committed to ensuring UK businesses can continue to trade with our EU partners as easily as possible after Brexit, while continuing to protect the UK’s high level of biosecurity.
