Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (15 Mar 2016)

Angela Eagle: ..., I will be voting for the UK to remain a member of the European Union.” He asserted that he would remain a “Brussels basher”, but is he not really increasingly seen in his own party as a Brexit betrayer? With 100 days to go to the EU referendum, does the overwhelming case for remaining in the EU not deserve a Business Secretary who can campaign with his heart as well as his head?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Regional Development: York Street Interchange (15 Mar 2016)

Alastair Patterson: Given that European funding could make up 40% of the total package for the York Street interchange, has the Minister given thought to the effect that Brexit would have on the future of this much-needed project?

EU Referendum: Northern Ireland (16 Mar 2016)

Jim Shannon: I thank the hon. Lady for giving way. She will understand that I come from a different point of view. The Stormont Public Accounts Committee recently concluded that Brexit would have little effect or impact on the Northern Ireland economy. Secondly, the hon. Lady will know that the fishing industry in Portavogie, Ardglass and Kilkeel is clear that it wants a viable fishing industry free from...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Mar 2016)

Angela Smith: In 2014, we exported £12.8 billion-worth of food products, with 73% of the total going to other European states. It is no wonder that 71% of Food and Drink Federation members want us to avoid Brexit. Does the Prime Minister think that our prospect of further improving the export profile of food manufacturing will be strengthened by staying in the European Union?

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (16 Mar 2016)

John Redwood: I think that I am doing that now. The Chancellor quoted the OBR, and the one thing that I disagreed with profoundly in a very good Budget was the OBR’s forecast on what would happen with Brexit. [Laughter.] It is not funny. Labour Members might learn something if they listened. They have obviously closed their ears to any idea that an independent Britain could be rich, prosperous and free,...

Trade Union Bill - Report (16 Mar 2016)

Lord Deben: ...been able to use it, I have been able to pick up some falsehoods, quoted sometimes I fear by the Opposition, on a number of issues, because now I can look things up pretty quickly. In the debate on Brexit, I find that almost every speech made by those who wish us to leave the European Union is filled with such falsehoods—and I can look it up at once.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Fishing and the EU (17 Mar 2016)

Angela Smith: Does the Minister acknowledge, however, that one of the difficulties involved in Brexit is that it is not necessarily easy to erase grandfather fishing rights?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (17 Mar 2016)

Martyn Day: ...position of the farming Minister is for the UK to leave the EU, what measures does he believe should be in place and how will he ensure financial assistance for Scottish farmers should there be a Brexit?

Business of the House (17 Mar 2016)

Pete Wishart: ...and I wandering through the same Lobby. Perhaps we will have that opportunity next week when we vote on the tampon tax. I oppose that tax because women are being taxed because of their biology. The Brexiteers oppose it because of what they see as Brussels meddling. I say to the Leader of the House, come on, we can march through that Lobby together to oppose that Chancellor and his EU...

European Union: Single Market — Question (17 Mar 2016)

Lord Pearson of Rannoch: That is a fact, my Lords. Would Brexit be not so much a leap in the dark for our overseas trade as a leap into the light?

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (17 Mar 2016)

Barry Sheerman: ...town. We in this country receive more research income from Europe than any other country per capita. The other day we could not find anyone in the higher education world to speak in favour of Brexit. Not only do we have all that research money and research partnerships, we have, because of the English language, the tremendous stimulus of many European students coming to this country. I do...

European Council (21 Mar 2016)

Geraint Davies: ...the UK will become decoupled from its biggest market and most strategic ally. What impact does he think Russian bombing on Syria and tactical resignation by his Cabinet have had on the appetite for Brexit in Britain?

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (22 Mar 2016)

Kenneth Clarke: ...; I think it will. In the emerging markets—there are associated problems with emerging market debt—there is volatility and some unsoundness in the financial world. And there is the risk of Brexit. I am very glad that the Governor of the Bank of England decided to reassure people by setting out publicly that he was prepared to take action if we had a flight of capital from this country...

Brussels Terrorist Attacks — Statement (23 Mar 2016)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ..., where my wife was walking through the site the day before this happened, is to make one feel that we are not cut off from all this. This is part of our world. I find it despicable that the Brexit campaign should have tried to suggest that we could cut ourselves off from the world and that what happens 100 miles away from London, in Brussels, is no concern of ours. This was, after all, an...

Housing and Planning Bill: Committee (9th Day) (Continued) (23 Mar 2016)

Lord Deben: ...human right—not only under the United Nations, but under the European Union of which I am sure we shall remain a full and active member, even though there is such nonsense spoken about it by the Brexit people. I am not getting on to that, of course. Even if they do not like the European Union, they are stuck with the United Nations human rights declaration, which we signed. I happen to...

Energy and Climate Change: Zero Emissions (24 Mar 2016)

Andrew Slaughter: ...(Edward Miliband), but how does the Secretary of State think the Government’s antipathy towards the renewables industry—and the fact that she has a Minister who is actively campaigning for Brexit—will help to achieve that target?

Business of the House (24 Mar 2016)

Paul Flynn: ...in the Welsh Assembly, Mr Andrew R.T. Davies, receives £97,000 a year in farming subsidy. When can we debate the campaign launched yesterday under the heading “Farmers will be better off” with Brexit, so that Members of this House can tell us how much they receive in their own farming subsidies, and how much more they expect from the taxpayer after Brexit?

Backbench Business — Court Closures: Easter Adjournment (24 Mar 2016)

Ian Blackford: ...additional people facing the potential freezing of their pensions is, in my opinion, a matter worthy of debate. We need some answers from the Government as to what would happen in the event of Brexit. Will those 400,000 pensioners also face the freezing of their pension? I hope when we return from recess that the House will have the opportunity to debate the matter fully, to give the...
