Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Economic Effect of No Deal (1 Oct 2019)

Edward Davey: Is the Chancellor aware that the Office for Budget Responsibility’s alarming fiscal analysis of a no-deal Brexit assumes that the Government’s preparations are successful—and so result in a miraculously benign no-deal Brexit—and that even with this least-damaging no-deal Brexit the OBR predicts a hit to Britain’s finances that would destroy every single spending announcement by the...

Leaving the EU: UK Tourism (12 Oct 2016)

Corri Wilson: ...party, despite promises on the sides of buses from leave campaigners, and despite almost four months of pondering by the Government since the referendum in June, we still have no idea what Brexit means. The Prime Minister is keen to emphasise that “Brexit means Brexit,” as if that statement carried any meaning. It does not. It seems that every day there is another Tory statement that...

Questions to the Mayor of London — New Year’s Eve 2018 Fireworks cost: New Year’s Eve 2018 Fireworks cost (29 Jan 2019)

Susan Hall: Mr Mayor, would you not agree that your complete obsession with Brexit means that you are taking your eye off the ball? You are looking at crime levels - or we are - that are going through the roof. Everywhere is dangerous now in London. That is your responsibility. Brexit is not. If you look at the hole in the finances of TfL, it is an absolute disgrace. That is your responsibility. Brexit...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (28 Feb 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...about doing just the opposite of what was agreed in phase 1? This is a Government in disarray. Every time the Cabinet meets, all we get are even more bizarre soundbites. Remember when we had “Brexit means Brexit”? Then we had “red, white and blue Brexit”, which presumably appealed to Conservative Members. Then we had “liberal Brexit”, and now we have “ambitious managed...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (14 Mar 2019)

...Prime Minister and the Government in London. Richard Leonard says that the House of Commons has two options, one of which—according to him—is a better deal. I say to him that there is no good Brexit deal. A Labour Brexit would not be better or less damaging to Scotland than a Tory Brexit. It is Brexit that will do the damage to Scotland, and that is why we should be seeking to honour...

Brexit: Other Policy Areas - Question (2 Jul 2019)

Lord Dobbs: My Lords, am I the only one to suspect that the complaints about Brexit dragging on, and the damaging implications of that, come from the very same sources as those designed to prevent Brexit ever being brought about? Would the logic of all this not be to get on with Brexit, get it finished and done, close down the Brexit department and get on with the rest of our lives?

Questions to the Mayor of London — Brexit: Brexit (6 Nov 2019)

Sadiq Khan: Chair, with the Government refusing to clarify when and how it intends to comply with the law enacted by the Benn Act, there remains a very real risk of a no-deal Brexit at the end of October. We have to hope that common sense and the law will prevail in securing an extension, but nothing can be taken for granted, and a disastrous no-deal Brexit in a fortnight is a real risk. Any form of...

Economy: Productivity - Question (5 Sep 2016)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: ...for their business and the economy. I am sure the whole House will welcome the news from the purchasing managers index today that the service sector is bouncing back from the disastrous post-Brexit figures. However, as the noble Lord has already mentioned, many businesses remain nervous about what Brexit will mean for them in the longer term. Does the Minister agree that, if companies are...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (29 Nov 2018)

Willie Rennie: ...Norway option will take us out of Europe, give us no say in Europe and damage our economy. Can I plead with the First Minister not to wobble, but to stand strong and oppose all and every kind of Brexit? This is First Minister’s questions, I remind her. The First Minister is opposed to Brexit, but is prepared to back it, too. Just yesterday—[ Interruption .] This is important. Just...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: 'A Vision for Northern Ireland outside the EU' (19 Sep 2016)

John O'Dowd: In one moment. He failed to mention that important fact. When those from whatever Benches have the rally cry that Brexit means Brexit, will somebody please draw me a diagram of what Brexit means? To date, no one has been able to confirm what Brexit means. Even the current Government in Westminster cannot agree on what Brexit means. Is there a done deal on Brexit? No, there is not. Is...

Business of the House (Today): Human Medicines (Amendment) Regulations (18 Mar 2019)

Helen Goodman: I am pleased to have an opportunity to make a short contribution to the debate. It is ironic, given that one of the main Brexit campaign slogans, on the side of a bus, promised £350 million for the NHS, that one of the most serious problems we are having to consider is the problem of medicine shortages in the event of Brexit. The Minister has still not made clear the extent to which those...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (26 Oct 2016)

Theresa May: The Leader of the Opposition tries to poke fun at the phrase “Brexit means Brexit”, but the whole point is this: on Brexit, it is this Government who are listening to the voice of the British people. “Brexit means Brexit” means we are coming out of the European Union. What the right hon. Gentleman is trying to do is frustrate the will of the British people by saying that Brexit means...

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Helen Hayes: ...to remain in the European Union. The vast majority of them were devastated by the referendum result, and there has been no subsequent reduction in the level of engagement from my constituents on Brexit, nor their palpable distress and concern. I made a firm commitment to represent the views of my constituents on Brexit, and their views are clear. Overwhelmingly, my constituents do not want...

Business of the House (Today): No Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (16 Jan 2019)

Wera Hobhouse: ...Prime Minister for giving way. I acknowledge that she wants to paint a good picture of her Government, but is it not true that, precisely because so many people were unhappy, they also voted for Brexit? Is it not the case that we need to clarify with the British people what exactly they voted for? We need to put a precise deal in front of them, and not just make a general assumption about...

British Steel (21 May 2019)

Tom Brake: British Steel has made it clear that Brexit uncertainty is scaring customers away and is a major cause of its problems. There is a simple solution: stop Brexit and stem the flow of job losses and relocations. If the Minister is not willing to take such action, will the Government instead look into the idea of setting up a Brexit support fund, which could be used, where appropriate, to support...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Leaving the EU: Health and Social Care (14 Nov 2017)

Philip Dunne: We are fully engaged with the highest level of Government work on Brexit. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State is a member of the Cabinet Committee on Brexit, and he is engaged on all areas where Brexit may impact the health and social care sector. We are actively considering the Brexit implications for the UK on workforce, medicine and equipment regulation, reciprocal healthcare, life...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (29 Jan 2019)

Nicholas Boles: ...the Bill promoted by her. The reason I have done so is that on the morning after the referendum, I sent a message to my constituents in which I committed to do my best to make a success of Brexit. Since then, I have left hospital in a wheelchair to vote for triggering article 50, and I have voted with the Government in every single Division on the withdrawal Act and every other piece of...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (15 Oct 2019)

Lord Taverne: ...great admiration for the noble Viscount as a scientist; he has written some excellent books about science. The evidence produced by the IFS and many others—that the future we face from a no-deal Brexit would be disastrous and that, in any event, Brexit means we would be much poorer—is dismissed by Brexiteers because any evidence that contradicts their beliefs is dismissed as more of...

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

[Relevant documents: the First Report of the Home Affairs Select Committee, Home Office delivery of Brexit: customs operations, HC 540; the Second Report of the Committee of Public Accounts, Brexit and the future of customs, HC 401; the Seventh Report of the Committee of Public Accounts, Brexit and the UK border, HC 558; the Second Report of the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Environmental Protections: Brexit Impact (28 Jun 2016)

Michelle McIlveen: It is still too early to have a clear picture of the implications of the Brexit vote for that. Existing legislation will remain and will continue to apply until there are conversations about Brexit. How that takes place will very much depend on the form of Brexit. If we remain part of the economic area, as in the Norway model, most of the environmental protections and legislation that we...
