Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Economic Strategy (7 Jun 2016)

Colum Eastwood: ...not 1·8 million, not even 60 million: it is 500 million people. The connections with our partners in the South and the cross-border opportunities that we have will be all lost if we vote for a Brexit. I know the DUP are against us remaining in the EU, but they are not really that against it, because they are not making that much of a big deal of it. They let Sammy out of the traps...

Genetically Modified Insects (S&T Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (7 Jun 2016)

Viscount Ridley: ...of what the company could begin to achieve. Yet the technology is being stifled by EU bureaucracy at home—I promise I will resist the invitation from the noble Lord, Lord Fox, to talk about Brexit on this occasion—so it is doing all its work in the Americas. It is disappointing that the Department for International Development did not join in the response to our report, because, as has...

EU Foreign and Security Strategy (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (7 Jun 2016)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: ..., and the members of his committee. I invite your Lordships to imagine the headline: “Boris says EU will abolish the Foreign Office”. This is not far from similarly wild claims made by Brexit supporters. Their vision of an EU leviathan rolling over all our hallowed institutions, even in areas that are traditionally the preserve of the nation state—internal security and external...

Petition - Car Parking Facilities at Watermead Country Park, Leicester: Comparative Healthcare Economics/NHS Finance (7 Jun 2016)

Andrew Murrison: I think the hon. Gentleman and I are on the same side of the Brexit debate, and I certainly would welcome the extra money that would be spent on the NHS in the event that we leave the European Union, so fingers crossed for 23 June. The Health Consumer Powerhouse report highlights poor accessibility and an “autocratic top-down management culture” here, in contrast to top-performing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: EU Referendum (8 Jun 2016)

Geraint Davies: Only two countries in the EU run a trade surplus with Britain: Holland and Germany, and the rest have a deficit. If there is Brexit, the rest will vote for tariffs, which would lead to inward investment moving from Northern Ireland into southern Ireland, and it will be the same for extra opportunities and jobs. How can the Minister and indeed the Secretary of State justify supporting Brexit...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Implications of the UK Leaving the EU (8 Jun 2016)

Gavin Robinson: The most passionate Europhile I know is the Irish ambassador to the UK, Dan Mulhall. He says that, in the event of Brexit, the principles of the Good Friday agreement and the common travel area would be maintained. Rather than inflating fears about the border, is it not incumbent on our Minister to de-escalate and deflate those straw men?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (8 Jun 2016)

Helen Goodman: With industrialists such as GlaxoSmithKline and Hitachi warning that if we left the EU, jobs would be lost, the Brexit economist Patrick Minford has revealed that under his side’s strategy, manufacturing would be mostly eliminated. Will the Prime Minister join me in calling on the Brexit leaders to say how many other people’s jobs they would sacrifice on the altar of their own political...

EU: UK Settlement - Question (8 Jun 2016)

Baroness Ludford: ...—not of the European Council—and indeed our future in the EU, has a degree of clarity and certainty which shines out, compared with the sketchy and shifting scenarios that we hear from the Brexiteers, whose model is based variously on Norway, Canada or Albania, depending on the speaker, the day or the hour?

Immigration - Question (8 Jun 2016)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: ...great pity if the outcome of the vote on 23 June, which affects our lives in so many ways, particularly those of young people, were to be decided by a nasty, xenophobic campaign by some of the Brexiteers?

BBC White Paper (8 Jun 2016)

Ed Vaizey: ...comes to something when the French have to make a 10-episode series about one of the most important episodes in their history in English so that it can be shown on the BBC. Quite right! Who wants Brexit when, if we remain, the French have to make all their programmes in English? I echo my hon. Friend the Member for Montgomeryshire, who said that the BBC was as important to him as his own...

Business of the House (9 Jun 2016)

Chris Bryant: ...benefits of the UK’s membership of the European Union, because the last thing our very fragile economic recovery needs is the prolonged bout of uncertainty and the self-inflicted recession that Brexit would undoubtedly bring. We always achieve far more by our common endeavour than by going it alone. John Donne was right that no man is an island, and these islands are not a hermetically...

Economy and Finance - Motion to Take Note (9 Jun 2016)

Lord McFall of Alcluith: ...—internationally, in the IMF, OECD and WTO; and nationally, in the Bank of England, the IFS and the National Institute of Economic and Social Research—are unequivocal in their belief that Brexit would be a very costly option in both the short and long term. Only one economic modelling exercise has generated a positive case for Brexit, and that is from a Vote Leave economist called...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Executive Office: Corporation Tax: Sinn Féin Position (13 Jun 2016)

Martin McGuinness: ...will take in the context of the run-in to the referendum. I think they are all sitting waiting to see what the decision of the people here and in England, Scotland and Wales will be in relation to Brexit. I do not know what their view will be on the other side of that. It amounts to another one of these unknowns, but, absolutely in principle, my view is that we need to have all the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Supply Resolution for the 2014-15 Excess Votes — Supply Resolution for the Northern Ireland Main Estimates 2016-17 (13 Jun 2016)

Steve Aiken: ...for the Northern Ireland European social fund (ESF), which has a total value from 2014 to 2020 of £360 million. What contingency has his Department made to fill the shortfall in the event of a Brexit, and has other work been conducted across all Departments to see how much funding is being expected from EU funding lines and on the impact that a Brexit would have on those programmes? I...

Digital Skills (Select Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (13 Jun 2016)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...is larger than that in any other G20 country. The noble Lords, Lord Aberdare and Lord Haskel, lightly touched on the European Union aspect. In that context, I have considerable concerns that Brexit would have a major impact on our digital sector, including our software industry, particularly in respect of its inability to take full advantage of the European digital single market....

EU: Energy Governance (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (13 Jun 2016)

Lord Howell of Guildford: .... First, this is one of the fascinating areas where we need a lot more Europe and a lot less Europe at the same time. That is a complicated thought and it does not fit in at all with the current Brexit debate, which reduces everything to polarised simplicities, but then hardly anything fits into the current Brexit debate that is of a serious and real kind. The “more”, as noble Lords...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: EU Membership: Human Rights (14 Jun 2016)

Joanna Cherry: ...the rights of working women, often in the face of opposition from Tory Governments. How does the Minister propose to ensure that these hard-won employment rights are protected in the event of a Brexit?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (14 Jun 2016)

Andrew Slaughter: So far today we have asked the Secretary of State about the risks that Brexit poses to workers’ rights and human rights, to the European arrest warrant and the prisoner transfer directive, and even to his cherished prison reform programme, but we have had no answer from him on any of them. Are not the Government and the Opposition right to say that those who want to protect human rights,...
