[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Donald Trump (18 Jan 2016)

Edward Leigh: ...I oppose the ban. First, it just gives Donald Trump publicity. Actually, this debate is the only item about British politics in the US press at the moment. They are not talking about Corbynmania, Brexit or anything else; they are talking about this debate. Why feed the machine? We saw what happened with Geert Wilders. Did that do any good? I do not think so. The hon. Gentleman made that...

Energy Bill [Lords] (18 Jan 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: ...Chancellor recognised the need for that in 2011 and it has taken until now to get it sorted. One reason for that is that we are expending so much political capital in Europe trying to negotiate a Brexit, but that is another case altogether. Does the Secretary of State really think that investors are going to choose the UK, where one could be liable to see governmental and regulatory...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Manufacturing Exports (19 Jan 2016)

Jonathan Reynolds: ...the UK economy is still too dependent on consumer spending to drive growth, and the Government must stop being so complacent and so self-congratulatory in sessions such as this. With the risk of Brexit this year only making things worse, what are they going to do to expand manufacturing exports?

Freedom of Information (Public Interest and Transparency) (19 Jan 2016)

Tom Brake: this weekend—and the Cabinet Secretary, Sir Jeremy Heywood, dubbed “Sir Cover-up”, have made their positions known too. Sir Gus suggests that civil servants will not be writing down Brexit plans, but is that because senior mandarins have scared them into thinking that they cannot write things down because they will be exposed through FOI—when there is no such risk—or because...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget 2016-17 (19 Jan 2016)

Patsy McGlone: ...sure that, whatever type of bullet it is, the other aspects of what can make it work will be there through the appropriate investment. A very key aspect that has not been looked at or mentioned is Brexit. What do I mean by that? From 2007 to 2013, we have had investment here of £2·4 billion. I have just caught up on some figures. In the 2014-2020 programme of EU funding, there is the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Economic Development (20 Jan 2016)

Deidre Brock: ...from the hon. Member for South Down (Ms Ritchie) about EU membership, would the Minister care to comment on a study by an Irish think-tank last year that said: “Estimates…suggest that a Brexit could reduce bilateral trade flows between Ireland and the UK by 20 per cent.” and that “the expected impact of Brexit is likely to be more significant for Northern Irish exporters to Ireland”?

Business of the House (21 Jan 2016)

Tom Brake: Last week I described the Leader of the House as a Brexit mini-beast, but this week I should like to extend the hand of friendship to him, and invite him to join me on a Southern train. I will buy the lattes. I hope that, at the end of the journey, he will want to make time available for a debate in the House to discuss my proposal that passengers should be entitled to compensation when their...

[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — Backbench Business — UK Steel Industry (21 Jan 2016)

Jonathan Edwards: ...only 45 days to conclude such investigations. While European bureaucrats dither, Welsh workers are losing their jobs and the pace of action is simply not good enough. To those who argue that a Brexit is the solution to my complaint, I respond by telling them to look at what happened to the coal industry—we would be leaving the steel industry in the hands of a Westminster Government. In...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Outcome of the December Fisheries Council Meeting (25 Jan 2016)

Jim Wells: ...Iceland have thriving, sustainable fish stocks and that they are outside the European Union? Given that, why did she lecture us last week on the dangers to Northern Ireland from the prospect of Brexit?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: North/South Ministerial Council: Special EU Programmes (26 Jan 2016)

Máirtín Ó Muilleoir: ...maith agat, a Cheann Comhairle. I am not usually in the Chamber this early in the morning, and I am pleasantly surprised to see how many Members are here. I do not want to continue the debate on Brexit, Minister, and the disasterville that will ensue should there be a vote to leave the EU. I want to focus on your statement. Minister, you outlined the sums of money involved and some of...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: UK Membership of EU (1 Feb 2016)

Bill Wiggin: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, how many copies of the Agra-Europe report on Brexit her Department has.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: North/South Ministerial Council: Trade and Business Development (1 Feb 2016)

Jonathan Bell: ...the best thing that anybody in Northern Ireland can do is to take the most informed decision that they possibly can. That is why we have commissioned work from Oxford Economics to look at what a Brexit could mean and what the status quo could mean. Earlier, I said to the Member, in words as strong as I can use in the House, that I do not believe, as my parliamentary leader and our Member...

UK’s Relationship with the EU (2 Feb 2016)

Angus Robertson: ...Ireland Assembly, and for the London Mayor and the London Assembly. It cannot be right for these elections and a referendum campaign to clash with a June polling day on remaining in the EU or Brexit. Will the Government now take the opportunity to confirm that they will respect the electorates in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and London by not announcing a June referendum date? Will...

European Union: United Kingdom Renegotiation — Statement (4 Feb 2016)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: ...values that are at stake? In the light of the changes made in your Lordships’ House to the European Union Referendum Bill, will the Government ensure that there is a realistic assessment of what Brexit would look like and its disadvantages for the United Kingdom? Can the noble Baroness assure your Lordships’ House that the reports on the consequences of withdrawal and alternatives to...

Parliamentary Sovereignty and EU Renegotiations (4 Feb 2016)

John Baron: ..., I do not believe Project Fear will bite. Ever-increasing numbers of big businesses, including the likes of JCB, Toyota, and Unilever, make it clear that they will not pull out in the event of a Brexit. Indeed, a recent Barclays report suggested a Brexit would be beneficial to the UK. Jobs are linked to our trade with Europe, not to our membership of the EU. Given that our vast trade...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Arts and Leisure: Arts and Culture: EU Funding (8 Feb 2016)

Carál Ní Chuilín: As the Member has pointed out, there is a lot of concern and anxiety around the whole Brexit argument. My Department is, along with others, looking into what the implications of that would be. I think that the sectors and the community should be heard. I heard some of the debates among the business community both in England and here, and 80% there and 90% here are for us not withdrawing...
