Leaving the European Union — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (11 Mar 2019)

David Linden: ...times, so I will take that with a pinch of salt. The Prime Minister has spent the last two years trying to placate her own party while its members peddle their almost impossible visions of a post-Brexit future to the public. After the referendum, the SNP attempted to extend an olive branch and said we would back a deal that offered to keep Scotland in the customs union and the single...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Brexit preparedness funding (2): Brexit preparedness funding (2) (30 Oct 2019)

Sadiq Khan: The GLA and London Resilience Forum have already incurred substantive costs for Brexit preparation work. The GLA has appointed a lead Brexit officer to lead on the coordination of these activities. In the last 12 months we have supported the Government to prepare for a no deal Brexit twice – in March and October 2019 – through the London Resilience Forum’s work. We have ensured...

Brexit: British Citizens - Question (29 Mar 2018)

Baroness Ludford: My Lords, I am delighted to be the first of four Liberal Democrats asking Questions on this important day. Does the Government’s plan for “Brexit means Brexit” not turn out to mean “Brexit in name only” and that, in the words of Jacob Rees-Mogg, the UK will be a “vassal state”? Can the Government therefore explain, one year before they are set to make us Brexit, what the point...

Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Jun 2018)

Theresa May: We are putting jobs at the heart of what we do in relation to Brexit. We are putting jobs at the heart of what we do as a Government through our modern industrial strategy and we are ensuring that, when we deliver Brexit, we deliver a Brexit that is good for our economy, good for jobs and good for people up and down this country. Through most of his career, the right hon. Gentleman has been...

Early Parliamentary General Election (No. 2) (9 Sep 2019)

Jo Swinson: very clear that the Government should release that report, and they have been instructed to do so by this House. I want to scotch the myth that the Prime Minister is putting about that a no-deal Brexit is in some way an end to this whole Brexit issue. As Leo Varadkar made clear today, it would be a case of getting back to the negotiating table, as a no-deal Brexit is just the beginning...

Scottish Parliament: Revoking Article 50 (27 Mar 2019)

Willie Rennie: I recognise the multitude of reasons why people voted for Brexit. After this process, we cannot just go back to how we were. We must recognise that some people in our society felt that they were being left out—many communities in the north of England certainly felt like that. We need to address those fundamental issues, to ensure that, in future, people do not use Brexit or another such...

Article 50: Parliamentary Approval (11 Jul 2016)

Chi Onwurah: Brexit means Brexit, but there is no agreed definition of what “Brexit” means, apart from the fact that it involves parliamentary sovereignty. Is the Minister seriously proposing that we should undergo such a momentous seismic change as Brexit without its having been defined to the British people before the referendum, or decided on by Parliament after it?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Plain English summary of retained direct EU legislation (20 Dec 2017)

Richard Graham: Again, just for clarification, Members who voted for article 50 are not Brexiteers, but presumably those who did not vote for article 50 are also not Brexiteers. Therefore, none of us is a Brexiteer; or are we actually all Brexiteers and just trying to resolve the issue?

Deferred Divisions: Early Parliamentary General Election (4 Sep 2019)

Wera Hobhouse: Does the right hon. Lady agree that a no-deal Brexit is no way out of this Brexit conundrum? Years and years of difficulties will follow and it is dishonest and not right to say that a no-deal Brexit will solve the Brexit issue.

Public Accounts Commission: Leaving the EU: National Audit Office (31 Oct 2019)

Edward Leigh: Brexit is, of course, a major task for Departments. Since 2016, the NAO has published 26 reports on aspects of Brexit. Most recently it has published reports on the UK’s border preparedness for Brexit and on Brexit’s implications for the supply of medicines to the health and social care sectors.

Leaving the European Union — [James Gray in the Chair] (1 Apr 2019)

Helen Hayes: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray. The Brexit negotiations over the past two years have culminated in a constitutional crisis and the inability of our Government to resolve the single biggest issue that our country has faced in a generation. Our Prime Minister has refused to take any responsibility for her role in that crisis, yet it is she who has led us to the...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (28 Jun 2017)

Lord Taverne: My Lords, today’s conventional wisdom among pro-Europeans is that we must go for a soft Brexit. Some say, “Stay in the single market, the customs union, or both, or have some sort of Norwegian solution”. I contest that view. I doubt whether a soft Brexit will be on offer; I believe it will not be acceptable to the Government if offered, and if it were acceptable it would not be that...

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Brexit (21 Oct 2019)

Luke Hall: ...have the necessary information to prepare effectively and that there are opportunities to raise and address specific local questions and concerns. I have asked every council to designate a Brexit Lead Officer who will oversee local preparations for Brexit and act as a contact point between the government and local areas. All 354 councils quickly designated a Brexit Lead Officer and the...

Leaving the EU: Wales — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (25 Oct 2016)

Christina Rees: Since the referendum the UK Government have said little more than “Brexit means Brexit,” but Ministers have alluded to a hard Brexit. Will my hon. Friend agree with the Welsh Labour MEP Derek Vaughan who has said that as a result of that stance the EU has withdrawn behind its lines, and we will end up with a hard Brexit?

Exiting the European Union (Financial Services) (18 Feb 2019)

Kirsty Blackman: With respect, that is not what it says in the explanatory memorandum for the first SI, which suggests that it is needed in the event of any Brexit and not just in the event of a no-deal Brexit. The second one covers a no-deal Brexit, but I had understood that the first one was needed for any Brexit.

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill (29 Oct 2019)

Boris Johnson: hear that the hon. Lady thinks that she voted for the programme motion last week—that is the logic of what she said. As far as I understand it, she voted for delay. She voted to delay Brexit indefinitely. Let us be absolutely clear: the whole country can see what is really going on. Does she want to deliver Brexit? No, she doesn’t. She does not want to deliver Brexit. People can see...

Opel-Vauxhall: Sale to PSA Group - Statement (6 Mar 2017)

Lord Prior of Brampton: It is worth making the point that this transaction between General Motors and PSA is as a result not of Brexit but of a longer-term strategy on the part of GM, and, of course, GM is becoming a shareholder in PSA. This is not a Brexit-related issue. The noble Lord is laughing but this transaction has not come about because of Brexit. The noble Lord says that the Government are pursuing a hard...

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (1 Nov 2017)

Chris Matheson: publish these impact assessments is sadly part of a pattern of shutting out scrutiny and opposition throughout. The basic issue is that the Government are being driven by hard-line ideological Brexiteers whose priority is to leave with as hard a Brexit as possible. They want a blank canvas on which to repaint the UK in their own desolate vision, shorn of rights for ordinary people and...

Leaving the EU: European Union (Withdrawal) Act (14 Jan 2019)

Wera Hobhouse: We have come a long way since June 2016. There is no more hiding from the fact that any Brexit will leave us worse off and that the best that any post-Brexit Government can do is damage limitation. If we go ahead with Brexit, we will have to find new ways of stimulating the economy. No longer bound by EU rules, those who argue for slashing regulations will quickly gain the upper hand. The...

Ford in Bridgend (10 Jun 2019)

Alun Cairns: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for underlining the points in relation to Brexit, because Ford has stated clearly that Brexit has nothing to do with this decision. Furthermore, there would be more credibility in the Opposition’s points about Brexit if the engine plant was being shifted from the UK to anywhere else in the European Union, but we know that production is being shifted to...
