Foreign and Commonwealth Office: The FCO and the Spending Review 2015 (1 Mar 2016)

Crispin Blunt: ...a handicap. When looking at future Committee reports and how we might influence future events, I hope that we will be able to report with authority and fulfil a much requested public need about Brexit. The Committee is conducting an inquiry into the costs and benefits of European Union membership for Britain’s role in the world—whether we stay in the EU or whether we leave. Hon....

European Union: Refugees - Question for Short Debate (1 Mar 2016)

the Earl of Sandwich: ...external borders need to change: what escapes us is the question of whether they can change and whether the European Council has the muscle to make any changes at all. Of course, the advocates of Brexit say with some glee that this is the end of Europe as we know it. One newspaper even says the EU itself has only a few days to go. More sensible people are determined that the Commission...

Housing and Planning Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (1 Mar 2016)

Baroness Hollis of Heigham: ...language on this around the House on the need to devolve decision-making to the most local body that was competent to do so. That is what localism means—that is why the anti-Europeans in the Brexit group sign up to quite a lot of that position, I suspect. This amendment emphasises that point. The Minister is saying that the government, Westminster and Whitehall prescription of starter...

European Union Referendum (Date of Referendum etc.) Regulations 2016 — Motion to Approve (2 Mar 2016)

Lord Hain: ...now—about £7.5 billion rather than £10 billion a year now, on the Norway model. In the case of Wales, because it receives more EU funding than any other part of the UK it would be worst hit by Brexit. Wales would end up paying the EU £320 million per year where we currently receive a net gain of £838 million per year. So each person in Wales could end up contributing more to the EU...

Business of the House (3 Mar 2016)

Chris Bryant: ...the Government intend to extend this Session beyond 23 June. We know that not because the Leader of the House has told the House, but because Downing Street has told The Times. I know that, as a Brexiteer, the Leader of the House is not allowed to see Government papers any more, but one would think that the Government would at least allow him to know when the recess dates will be. So come...

Backbench Business — Gangs and Serious Youth Violence: Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: ...the European Union. We will do it with special zeal. Wales is a net beneficiary of EU funding. Our membership of the European Union is vital to our economy, security and our place in the world. A Brexit would be a massive gamble for Wales, putting jobs, investment, trade and therefore the safety of our communities at risk. The very last thing that we need now is the instability that the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Finance and Personnel: EU Funding (8 Mar 2016)

Patsy McGlone: ...to Northern Ireland. The only precedent we have is welfare reform, and that did not work out particularly well. Has his Department carried out any audit of the potential implications of Brexit, negative or otherwise, specifically for Northern Ireland? I think that faith in the Tories to deliver post Brexit to Northern Ireland is pretty much ill-founded, as I said, and grounded in a...

International Women’S Day 2016 (8 Mar 2016)

Matt Warman: On around 22 June this year, I am due to become a father for the first time. While it is not yet clear whether this baby girl’s middle name would best be Europa or Brexit, she will in due course become an international woman. Being born in Britain, she will over the course of her school and working life encounter opportunities that remain almost unimaginable for many born elsewhere. She...

Scottish Parliament: European Union (Impact of United Kingdom Leaving) (9 Mar 2016)

Humza Yousaf: That is a fair point to make. I have suggested it to people who believe in Britain’s exit from the European Union—Brexit. Jamie McGrigor will be pleased about the announcement of the Scottish Government stepping up to the mark to put £200 million in place for advance payments. I say to members who believe in Brexit that I struggle to believe that the UK would match the support that the...

Scottish Parliament: European Union (Benefits of Membership) (9 Mar 2016)

Richard Lyle: ...MP, the mayor of London, on the television debating why the UK should leave the EU. His comments during that show reinforced my belief in voting to stay in the EU. In light of the comments that the Brexit campaign is making, what would the Scottish Government’s position be and what action would it possibly take if England voted to leave the European Union?

Scotch Whisky Industry — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (9 Mar 2016)

Martin Docherty: ...distillery, which produces Captain Haddock’s favourite tipple in Hergé’s “Tintin”—a truly European product. Whisky is a global product that will not be assisted by Members who favour Brexit. Loch Lomond marks the boundary between the lowlands and highlands of Scotland and has been at the heart of whisky production for centuries. Sadly, at least nine distilleries around the loch...

Enterprise Bill [Lords] — [2ndAllocated Day]: Clause 33 — Extended Sunday opening hours and Sunday working (9 Mar 2016)

Andrea Jenkyns: ...group on local democracy. Its secretariat is the National Association of Local Councils, which represents 8,000 town and parish councils. I fully believe in devolution; it is one reason why I am a Brexiter and fully support coming out of the EU. How can we speak of devolution while we cede more power to Brussels? How can the SNP say it wants more power in Holyrood rather than Westminster,...

Enterprise Bill [Lords] — [2ndAllocated Day]: Schedule 5 — Sunday opening hours: rights of shop workers (9 Mar 2016)

Angela Eagle: ...for Britain to stay in the European Union. I do not know whether he has been bullied by the Chancellor. However, he seemed anxious to burnish his Eurosceptic credentials even as he abandoned his Brexit friends in pronouncing recently that he would remain a “Brussels basher” despite his Brexit betrayal. His enthusiasm for the cause will be a great asset to all of us who believe...

Trade Union Political Funds and Political Party Funding — Motion to Take Note (9 Mar 2016)

Lord Desai: ...is constructed here, we can do that kind of reforming thinking in your Lordships’ House. So, as and when the members of the ruling party have got over their little local difficulties with Brexit—somewhere in high summer, so in July or so—they ought to turn their mind to thinking about long-run reform of political funding. I would again recommend that they use your Lordships’ House...

Business of the House (10 Mar 2016)

Chris Bryant: ...that he is catching up. The decision to hold the Queen’s Speech on 18 May is a profound mistake. Whatever the Government’s intentions, they will be misconstrued. We have already seen that the Brexit campaign is now so desperate that it is even trying to recruit members of the royal family to its cause. I say, “Lay off the Queen and think again.” After all, there is plenty that we...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Local Government (Standing Orders) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2016 (14 Mar 2016)

Alban Maginness: ...with a situation where the council would be acting ultra vires, that is, outside its powers, and outside European Union law. Perhaps we might have to remedy that in the near future if there is a Brexit. I will leave that aside; perhaps this is too serious a matter for me to joke about. The other aspect is where the council contravenes human rights in relation to the European Convention...
