Jan Böhmermann - Question (4 May 2016)

Baroness Smith of Newnham: ...laws, whether we like them or not: it is not constrained by the European Union, just as the UK is not. Does the Minister agree that this episode demonstrates that, despite the scare stories of the Brexiteers, the European Union does not interfere in the domestic rulemaking of its member states?

Anglo-Russian Relations (4 May 2016)

Pat Glass: ...alone supports the UK voting to leave the European Union, when every other world leader and organisation that wish this country well want us to remain in the EU. That can only be because he sees a Brexit as resulting in a weaker UK and a weaker EU, which he views as a good thing. Anglo-Russian relations will remain stable and, we hope, improve only if the UK remains part of a strong NATO,...

EU Immigration — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (5 May 2016)

Andrew Turner: ...” must mean that the projection is artificial, mainly because it does not consider alternatives and is filled with uncertainties. The Treasury has considered no potential models in case of Brexit other than the two already available alternatives—for both we would have to accept free movement of people—and nor has it considered uncertainties such as future Government policies on...

EU Referendum Leaflet — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (9 May 2016)

Paul Scully: ...more measured view. He worked through the possible effects on our foreign policy of two positive options, in a report agreed unanimously by his Committee, before coming to his decision in favour of Brexit only today.

Petition - Wellington Railway Station: European Convention on Human Rights (9 May 2016)

Christopher Chope: ...the issue of the UK’s membership of the European convention on human rights. I want to focus on the issue in the context of the referendum that will take place on 23 June—and let me say, as a Brexiteer, that it is good to know that a fellow Brexiteer will be responding to the debate. I should, at the outset, set out my position on sovereignty and human rights. I want our Parliament to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Healthcare Costs (EU and UK Citizens) (10 May 2016)

Jane Ellison: ...for sunnier weather. The figure is 80% because many more UK pensioners retire to Europe than European pensioners retire here, and there will always be an imbalance. I am sure that even the keenest Brexiteer would not claim that Britain would be sunnier outside the EU.

Child Refugee Resettlement - Statement (10 May 2016)

Lord Wigley: ...there? We in Wales are anxious to play our part in this programme. Given the emphasis that he placed on co-operation with the French authorities, is he confident that in the unfortunate event of a Brexit vote that that co-operation will continue?

Pensions Uprating (Uk Pensioners Living Overseas) (11 May 2016)

Ian Blackford: ...on the 550,000 pensioners who are losing out, but there is a topical dimension to this debate as well. What are the implications for the 400,000 UK pensioners living in EU countries if there is a Brexit vote in a few weeks’ time? In the other place, Baroness Altmann, responding on 3 March to a parliamentary question of 23 February, stated: “Of course there is uncertainty about how a...

Steel Industry — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (11 May 2016)

Stephen Doughty: ...Government and Tory MEPs do in Europe and not, as some have suggested, the European Union in some way putting the kibosh on the steel industry. Does my hon. Friend agree that it is misleading for Brexit campaigners to suggest that the steel industry in the UK would be better off if we left? The truth is that if we left the EU, that would be a body blow to the steel industry.

Northern Ireland Economy (11 May 2016)

David Simpson: ...debate, in case you chastise me, Mr McCabe, or I get some dirty looks from the Social Democratic and Labour party. This will be a pleasant, humorous and serious debate and none of us will mention Brexit and all such things. Arlene Foster has gained huge respect across the whole of Northern Ireland, with more than 200,000 people having voted for her leadership and for our party. We look...

EU Migrants: National Insurance Numbers (12 May 2016)

Kenneth Clarke: ..., and that the fall in wages in recent years was plainly caused by the deep recession—the worst since the second world war—in 2007? This refutes other anti-immigrant arguments that some of the Brexiteers keep using in the present campaign. Does he accept that the real migrant crisis facing him and this country is the problem of how to deal, in a civilised and effective way, with the...

BBC (12 May 2016)

Barry Sheerman: ...might have been shot this morning, but I believe that by Sunday, as with the Budget, when the detail has been crawled over, this will be seen as a deep, dark day for the BBC. [Interruption.] The Brexiteers seem to have combined hating Europe with hating the BBC. This will be a champagne night for Rupert Murdoch and Richard Desmond. The BBC is better than that and is owned by the British...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (1st Day) (18 May 2016)

Lord King of Bridgwater: ...successful car industry because of the problems with steel. It is against this background that my own view is that we should remain but should immediately employ what I believe will be a very large Brexit vote to play a leading role in promoting the much more fundamental reforms that are clearly needed in the EU. If people do not think that this can be done, I shall give them one slogan to...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (18 May 2016)

Christopher Chope: ..., that can be delivered only by leaving the EU, because our very membership undermines the sovereignty of Parliament. That is why my right hon. Friend the Lord Chancellor is so much in the Brexiteer campaign: he realises that only by leaving the EU can we truly retain our sovereignty and have control over our own laws. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Bracknell (Dr Lee) on his...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (19 May 2016)

Lord Mendelsohn: ...in professional services, telecoms and communications, and banking and finance, and due to the slowdown in investment caused by the financial crisis and in recent times by the possibility of Brexit, there are also problems in manufacturing. We strongly support the plan to deal with this by promoting competition across the economy, and in this context we welcome the better markets Bill,...

Debate on the Address: Transport and Local Infrastructure (19 May 2016)

Melanie Onn: ..., is also funded by the EU. If the bus were to stop running, I should be worried about the impact on businesses on the site. I should like to hear the Minister’s view of the potential impact of Brexit in that context. Let me now turn to an issue about which I have previously written to the Under-Secretary of State for Transport, the hon. Member for Harrogate and Knaresborough (Andrew...

European Union: United Kingdom Membership - Question (23 May 2016)

Baroness Ludford: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that reply. Is it not arrogant of the Brexiteers to substitute their view for that of our NATO friends, whose view is that the EU is a key partner for NATO, that Brexit would undermine NATO and give succour to the West’s enemies and that, at a time of such global instability, it would be very troubling if Britain ended its membership of the EU? Is it not...

Uk Economy: Post-Referendum Assessment (23 May 2016)

Rob Marris: ...of the Exchequer now recognise that the large majority of the problems we faced in 2008 and onwards were caused not by a Labour Government, but by a world recession. We now need not a Tory Brexit, but an economy that is strong and will remain stronger if we stay in the European Union, but that still needs considerable changes, particularly in investment in infrastructure and skills. Our...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (23 May 2016)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...that a vote to leave in June could tip the country into recession, and the CBI’s Carolyn Fairbairn has warned that it would cause “a serious shock” to the UK economy. The words of many in the Brexit campaign take us back to a future reminiscent of the 1980s, when it was said that unemployment was a price worth paying and things such as paid leave and health and safety were red tape...
