Scottish Parliament: No-deal Brexit (Possible Disruptions at NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde) (9 Oct 2019)

Johann Lamont: I am sure that the cabinet secretary will agree that we cannot believe a word that Prime Minister Boris Johnson says, especially in relation to his promise that Brexit would bring the national health service an extra £350 million a week. Does the cabinet secretary agree that, in stark contrast to that promise, Brexit uncertainty and the threat of there being no deal have put the NHS and...

Class 4 National Insurance Contributions (15 Mar 2017)

Geraint Davies: ...Chancellor confirm that at the time he and his colleagues put together the manifesto commitment not to put up national insurance, VAT or income tax, there had been no economic impact assessment of Brexit; and that the economic cost of Brexit, from hard Brexit and tariffs, will fall wholly on public services and the poor?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Sep 2017)

Matt Warman: Britain is among the world’s leading digital economies, and as we leave the European Union technology will be crucial for a successful Brexit and for dealing with issues from the Northern Irish border to customs controls. Does the Prime Minister agree that Brexit can kick-start a further wave of digital investment and that working with the industry through a Brexit technology taskforce...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Legislative Consent (11 Jul 2018)

David Mundell: ...as a Minister. He was one of the hardest working Ministers I have ever encountered, and I absolutely agree with what he said. Although there are people in this Chamber who have their differences on Brexit, the SNP is not interested in Brexit—Brexit has been weaponised purely to take forward the cause of independence and have another independence referendum.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Department for Transport: Brexit (2 Oct 2019)

Chris Heaton-Harris: 81 Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) relating to Brexit Preparations, including those signed for commercial purposes, have been signed between DfT and its stakeholders between June 2016 and 22 August 2019. Government has listened to industry concerns that NDAs have hindered constructive debate and exchange of information, restricting industry’s ability to help their members prepare for...

Scottish Parliament: Farm Incomes (8 Nov 2017)

Fergus Ewing: ...up to 2022, and I have had no answer; only farm support has been guaranteed. All of those long-term projects, for example in forestry, do not have the clarity that Mr Chapman implied they do. Post-Brexit, I am afraid that it gets rather worse for Mr Chapman. I asked Mr Gove another question. I said, “Mr Gove, during the Brexit referendum, you said that after Brexit, the funding from...

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (1 Apr 2019)

Ed Vaizey: I want to start with my usual mantra. I have voted for Brexit three times, and I have backed the Prime Minister's withdrawal agreement, but I will be supporting the customs union and common market 2.0 tonight. I want to make it absolutely clear to anyone who is thinking of not doing so that supporting those options will not preclude them from supporting the withdrawal agreement, should it...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Leaving the EU: Business Growth in Scotland (16 Oct 2018)

Peter Grant: Yesterday, AstraZeneca joined a long line of major UK employers that have put investment plans on hold because of Brexit uncertainty. The Governor of the Bank of England has indicated that, even before we leave, Brexit has already cost £900 per UK household. Does the Secretary of State agree with the Governor’s estimate? If he does not, what is his estimate of what Brexit has cost us to date?

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (7 May 2019)

Matthew Hancock: No, the NHS is going to be there for us no matter what the outcome of Brexit is. The British people voted for Brexit, and we are going to deliver Brexit, and then we are going to get on to doing all the other things. Even over the last few months, we have been able to put extra money into the NHS to ensure that its future is guaranteed.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU (19 Jun 2019)

Drew Hendry: According to every piece of the Secretary of State’s own Government’s analysis, there is no version of Brexit that fails to harm Scotland. New YouGov polling shows that Tory members would prefer Scotland to be an independent country, rather than stopping Brexit. Which choice should the Scottish Secretary make: a devastating no-deal Brexit Britain, or giving the people of Scotland the...

Scottish Parliament: Parliamentary Bureau Motions (5 Sep 2018)

Graeme Dey: The decision was a unanimous one of the bureau, which reflects the huge significance of Brexit for Scotland and the Parliament. Brexit will weigh heavily on the deliberations and actions of the Scottish Parliament over the next six months and beyond. Given that, from the perspective of business managers, it was inappropriate for the Parliament to rise for the Easter recess on the eve of...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Implications of EU Exit on Policing and Security: Implications of EU Exit on Policing and Security (6 Nov 2019)

Unmesh Desai: Thank you, Mr Mayor. You said earlier this morning that - and I agree with you - there is a link between Brexit and policing. On Tuesday, Sir Stephen House [QPM], the Deputy Commissioner [of Police of the Metropolis], gave us examples of how Brexit, particularly a Brexit not planned for, would actually affect policing in a very practical sense. We do know that dangerous offenders do cross...

Exiting the European Union: Leaving the EU: Legislation (25 Oct 2018)

Suella Braverman: The Government take very seriously the concerns of local authorities when it comes to Brexit preparations. I have met local government leaders all over the country to talk about the subject. I am glad that the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government has set up a Brexit delivery board to co-ordinate the work of local authorities and Government on preparations for...

Nissan: Sunderland - Statement (31 Oct 2016)

Lord Lea of Crondall: My Lords, is it not abundantly clear that what was worrying Nissan was the repeated statement that “Brexit means Brexit”? Is it not equally clear, from today’s Statement, that Brexit does not mean Brexit and that the absence of access to the internal market and the customs union was starting to worry the management of Nissan? If these guarantees are now being given—and we hope that...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit Preparations (18 Dec 2018)

Adam Tomkins: The cabinet secretary has just spent 10 minutes unpicking his own argument. He opposes a no-deal Brexit. So do I. He considers that all necessary steps should be taken to avoid a no-deal Brexit. So do I. However, the truth is that there is no need at all to risk a no-deal Brexit, for the simple reason—it is simple enough for even the cabinet secretary to understand—that there is a deal on...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Travel Companies) (16 May 2019)

Gillian Martin: Brexit still has not happened, but the damage is already being done. Today, there are doubts whether Thomas Cook, a travel company with 180 years of history, can continue as a going concern. Does that not demonstrate the impact of Brexit on ordinary families—in this case, families who are looking forward to their well-earned holidays—and why it is so important for Scotland to say no to...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Growth Scheme (Investment in North East Scotland) (28 Nov 2019)

Derek Mackay: .... I have gone through that forensically at the Economy, Energy and Fair Work Committee. One of the reasons that we heard for some investment being pulled, or not being seen through to the end, was Brexit uncertainty, and whose fault is that? It is the Tories who have put us in the position of Brexit uncertainty. A no-deal Brexit would be calamitous for Scotland’s economy. What part of...

Economy and Finance - Motion to Take Note (9 Jun 2016)

Lord Lee of Trafford: ...focus my contribution on it. I very much disagree with the noble Lord, Lord Leigh, on this, although we share the same tailor. My mood is a mix of anger and sadness—anger that the leaders of the Brexit campaign choose wilfully to ignore the warnings of so many who have far more experience of international trade and finance than they do. They do not care that virtually all trade bodies...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Nov 2018)

Theresa May: ...Organisation. If he wants to talk about different positions that are being taken, what we are doing is delivering a good deal that will deliver on the vote of the British people. We are delivering Brexit. What have we seen recently from the Labour party? Well, the Labour leader said: “we can’t stop” Brexit, but the shadow Brexit Secretary said that we can stop it. When the right hon....

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Corresponding powers involving devolved authorities (16 Jan 2018)

Stephen Kerr: ...in my sight. I shall come to clause 11, but first I wish to make it clear that the people and businesses of Stirling—the individuals who live in my constituency—want us to make the best of Brexit. All we hear from other parties, as we heard from the First Minister of Scotland yesterday, is an unmitigated diet of doom and gloom. The fact is that, as was disclosed in an esteemed social...
