Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: EU Referendum (12 Apr 2016)

Richard Graham: ...some £2 billion a year, and talks with Indonesia and the Philippines start soon. Will my right hon. Friend explain whether we would easily be able to replicate those 53 agreements in the case of Brexit and how long that would take?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: EU Referendum (12 Apr 2016)

Ian Blackford: It is not just those in employment, but pensioners who would suffer the consequences of Brexit. What can the Minister say about any British pensioners living in Europe who may be caught up in the “frozen pensions” scandal if we leave the European Union?

Uk Steel Industry (12 Apr 2016)

Richard Fuller: ...very intelligently. Private companies make decisions in different markets across the European Union. I disagree with my hon. Friend the Member for Wellingborough (Mr Bone), although we agree on Brexit, as I am not sure that the EU is pertinent to the decision that will affect the steel industry. The Government have taken effective action on procurement and power. Having served on a Bill...

Attorney General: European Arrest Warrant (14 Apr 2016)

Jonathan Reynolds: ...more easily across different European countries. Why anybody would wish to end that kind of co-operation between European countries is beyond me. Does the Attorney General agree that the Brexit campaign is soft on crime and soft on the causes of crime?

Business of the House (14 Apr 2016)

Callum McCaig: The Brexiteers suggest that because the UK has a negative balance of payments with the European Union, we should be seeking to leave. With that in mind, may we have a debate about the UK’s place in the world? Given that we have a global trade deficit, perhaps we should be seeking to leave it, too.

BBC: Diversity (14 Apr 2016)

Ed Vaizey: ...me briefly acknowledge, although he is no longer in the Chamber, for reasons I cannot fathom, my hon. Friend the Member for Isle of Wight (Mr Turner), who took diversity to mean more coverage of Brexit.

EU Withdrawal: Tourism and Hospitality Industries - Question (18 Apr 2016)

Lord Lee of Trafford: ...substantially by EU migrant workers, one understands why tourism and airline chiefs and trade bodies such as UKinbound and the Wine and Spirit Trade Association support us remaining in. Would Brexit not be an absolute disaster and a supreme folly for our tourism and hospitality sectors?

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

Rachel Reeves: ...that the last thing that exporters need, and the last thing that the one in 10 jobs that depend on our exports to the EU need, is the uncertainty that the referendum is bringing—and, indeed, that Brexit would bring—to them and to those jobs?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (19 Apr 2016)

Edward Leigh: ...next year. Does the Chancellor realise that instructing his officials to produce a speculative report based on thoroughly tendentious figures about what might or might not happen in the event of Brexit simply belittles the reputation of the Treasury for economic competence and forecasting? Instead of relying on fear, why does he not give us his vision, compared with our vision of a free...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: EU Referendum (20 Apr 2016)

Mark Durkan: ...others say that that will be dwarfed by the bounty that we will receive as money is redirected to Northern Ireland instead of Brussels? Does he believe there is a crock of gold at the end of the Brexit rainbow?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Apr 2016)

Kenneth Clarke: ...comply with any rules agreed with the country to which one is selling. Will he include some of the many businessmen who are putting investment decisions on hold now because of the uncertainty about Brexit after 23 June, which illustrates the dangers we would run if we made our whole future trading arrangements with the outside world as uncertain as some people are trying to make them?

UK Dairy Sector — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (20 Apr 2016)

Nick Smith: ...give assurances that that target will be met in future years? Finally, I welcome the deep analysis done by the NFU on the implications of a UK exit from the EU. The analysis showed that every Brexit scenario resulted in a large drop in income for farmers. Will the Minister join me in recognising that for dairy farmers, staying in the EU is vital for the trade and support that it provides...

Business of the House (21 Apr 2016)

Chris Bryant: ....” I hope that that will be the case. Incidentally, did you hear the sound of silence that evening, Mr Speaker? It was the great silence that descends on the leave campaign when it is asked what Brexit would look like. The Lord Chancellor spluttered on Wednesday about the great free trade area that apparently runs from Iceland to Turkey. His solution is that we be like Bosnia, Serbia,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (26 Apr 2016)

Andrew Slaughter: Let me make sure that I have got this right. We have the leaders of the Tory Brexit campaign saying that we will stay in the ECHR, while the Home Secretary is explaining her support for remain by saying that we should leave the convention altogether. Is that not a shambles? Was not the former Attorney General, the right hon. and learned Member for Beaconsfield (Mr Grieve), right to say that...

Trade Union Bill (Discussions) (28 Apr 2016)

Paul Flynn: The hon. Member for Harwich and North Essex (Mr Jenkin) who asked this urgent question speaks passionately on behalf of his own union, which is the general and municipal union of Brexit bigots. [Hon. Members: “Order!”] It is extraordinary that he asked for the adviser on ministerial interests to be woken from his slumber—that adviser has been virtually unemployed since he was appointed,...

The Economy - Motion to Take Note (28 Apr 2016)

Lord Newby: ...to pick up the baton. If we were unable to keep the passporting rights, rules set by the EU would undoubtedly over time, as sure as night follows day, disadvantage the City. So, whatever the post-Brexit relationship, our position re trade with the EU will be less favourable than it is now. What do the Brexiters say? They say we do not need to worry about trade with the EU because outside...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Digital Industries (3 May 2016)

Chi Onwurah: ...online than any other country. Would the Minister like to estimate how long it would take him, even with his fabled charm, to renegotiate all our international digital agreements in the event of a Brexit, and what our £118 billion digital economy would do in the meantime?

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (3 May 2016)

Julie Elliott: In The Sunday Times this week it was reported that meetings are taking place in France to look at how people could take advantage of getting business from the UK in the event of a Brexit vote. Does the Secretary of State agree that remaining in the EU is vital for British trade, particularly in the automotive and aerospace industries, and for the health of the British economy as a whole?

Anti-corruption Summit — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (3 May 2016)

Tommy Sheppard: ...Act 2016 will still cover only a minority of taxation and regulation in that country, but the UK Government could learn much from Scotland’s GAAR about toughening up the regulations. Perhaps the Brexit debate is the elephant in the room. Much has been achieved in recent years at European level, through the EU, on anti-laundering legislation. I accept that, in theory, if we were to leave...
