Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Education: GCSE Grading System (8 Feb 2016)

John O'Dowd: ...government. Devolved institutions will make decisions that they believe are in the best interests of their students. Employers now deal with qualifications from across Europe. The debate about Brexit and our relationship with Europe is relevant here, because, with the influx of European workers into our economy, employers — particularly major employers — deal with qualifications from...

EU Referendum: Timing (9 Feb 2016)

Nigel Dodds: ...in itself precipitate the rise of Irish republican terrorism again. It is hard to know what is worse about claims such as these—that they are criminally irresponsible, or logically fatuous. Brexit will neither cause republican terrorism, nor make any difference to it. Its cause, wrong and bad as it is, is Northern Ireland’s membership of the United Kingdom, democratically decided and...

European Council (22 Feb 2016)

James Cartlidge: Moody’s has today warned that it could cut Britain’s credit rating in the event of Brexit. It justifies that thus: “Unless the UK managed to negotiate a new trade arrangement with the EU that preserves at least some of the trade benefits of EU membership, the UK’s exports would suffer. It would likely lead to a prolonged period of uncertainty, which would negatively affect...

European Council - Statement (22 Feb 2016)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ..., including terrorism, and then found out, along with the rest of his party, that they had to opt back in to everything because it actually worked? It worked because it made us safer. For so long, Brexit campaigners have been telling us that EU citizens travel to the UK in order to get benefits. Then, when the Prime Minister reaches an agreement to cut these, the argument shifts to being...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (23 Feb 2016)

Angela Rayner: ...earlier questions relating to the benefit to the UK of remaining in the EU, is it not a real concern that many of his Government colleagues would put our security and economic future at risk by a Brexit?

Public Bill Committee: Bank of England and Financial Services Bill [Lords]: New Clause 4 - Change in title of the Bank of England (23 Feb 2016)

George Kerevan: ...raised the issue of what would happen if Scotland were to become independent. If I gather correctly the drift of the contributions, Members are worried that if Scotland becomes independent post Brexit, the name would have to be changed back. I am glad that Members are still alive to the fact that the independence issue is alive and well north of the border. I will not tempt the Chair’s...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture and Rural Development: EU Fines and Financial Penalties (23 Feb 2016)

Michelle O'Neill: ...farmers' pockets are very clear; the evidence is there to back up what I am saying. I often hear this argument about regulations. Anybody who thinks that regulations are going to disappear post-Brexit are absolutely deluded. There will always be regulations in place. If we were to start out tomorrow not as a member of the European Union and wanted to trade with it, we would have to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget Bill: Final Stage (23 Feb 2016)

Alex Attwood: ...from the food and drink sector who were in the Building today and all those who trade with Europe — none of whom you referred to — will not be impressed by your enthusiastic endorsement of Brexit. My question on the A5 was this: on the basis that the public inquiry will not start until the autumn and given the length of such things, the risk of legal challenge and the fact that, on the...

Points of Order (25 Feb 2016)

Chris Law: ...questions yesterday—at a time when junior doctors are looking at yet another strike in England, and when Scotland may be dragged out of the EU unwillingly or unfairly, based on polls there on the Brexit—we had a spat between the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition about a mother’s opinions on behaviour and dress codes, yet SNP Members have been told off for clapping in...

European Affairs (25 Feb 2016)

Edward Leigh: ...is rightly doing a sort of cost-benefit analysis of this issue. Why do the Government not institute an independent study, by a genuinely independent body, to go in some detail into the effects of a Brexit, plus or minus, on, say, GNP? That would surely be very useful.

EU Membership (Audit of Costs and Benefits) Bill (26 Feb 2016)

Edward Leigh: ...Affairs—Minford et al, 2005—“Should Britain leave the EU” estimates a range of 3.2% to -3.7% of GDP in ongoing costs. I have dealt with Open Europe. The 2014 study by Gianmarco Ottaviano “Brexit or Fixit? The Trade and Welfare Effects of Leaving the European Union”, the Centre for Economic Performance and the London School of Economics estimated the trade-related costs to the...

Access to Medical Treatments (Innovation) Bill: Second Reading (26 Feb 2016)

Lord Blencathra: ...Sinai and others in the USA. In some cases, they have made great medical advances faster than us, but in other areas we have made breakthroughs better and faster than them. Without straying into Brexit matters, it has to be said that Britain leads the world in medical research. If we only had as much money to throw at it as the Yanks have, they would not come anywhere near us in the amount...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister: Trade Missions (29 Feb 2016)

Martin McGuinness: ...work of the Minister of Enterprise, Trade and Investment, to engage everywhere with all those who potentially are interested in trading with us. Obviously, it is back to the whole debate around Brexit; the amount of trade that takes place between this part of the world and Europe is absolutely phenomenal. The work that we are involved in obviously centres around our office in Brussels....

Referendums (29 Feb 2016)

John Redwood: ...the past few days. We have been witnessing a long-term decline of the pound against the dollar for many months, because we are living through a period of dollar strength. In the past few days, when Brexit was in the news, we were told that the pound was going down because of fears about Brexit, whereas that was clearly not the case on other days when the pound had been going down. However,...

Uk Steel Industry (29 Feb 2016)

Jonathan Edwards: As the Secretary of State knows, the leader of the Conservative party in the National Assembly has said that he will vote for a Brexit. Would that help or hinder the steel industry in Wales?
