Brexit: European Union Citizenship - Question (13 Dec 2016)

Lord Lennie: Respecting the Brexit decision, sooner or later the Government will have to deal with the issues of Brexit-related migration and market access—and in a way that seeks to unite the whole country and not just the 52% whom they are dealing with at the moment. To do so fairly, the Government surely have to look at issuing ID cards to all those resident here at the time of Brexit. Does this...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Nick Clegg: The insult was that the Brexit campaigners deliberately withheld from the British people what they meant by Brexit. It was a deliberate, effective but highly cynical tactic. We never received a manifesto with the views of Nigel Farage, the Foreign Secretary or the former Education Secretary, the right hon. Member for Surrey Heath (Michael Gove), explaining what Brexit means. Therefore, when...

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Stephen Kinnock: .... We live in a deeply divided country: city versus town, young versus old, graduate versus non-graduate. The referendum did not create those divides, but it certainly gave them voice. An EEA-based Brexit is one that could reunite our divided country: it is a Brexit that provides the basis for avoiding a hard Irish border; it is a Brexit that offers the opportunity for reform of free...

European Council (25 Mar 2019)

Patricia Gibson: People are very concerned and alarmed by this Brexit chaos, in North Ayrshire and Arran and the UK as a whole. This is a time of crisis, and people in Scotland and across the UK are represented in these Brexit talks by a Prime Minister and a Government whom EU leaders at the weekend described as “evasive” and “confused”, in the final days before Brexit. Does she think that that...

The Economy (24 Oct 2019)

Lilian Greenwood: My right hon. Friend is making an excellent speech. Does he agree that perhaps one of the reasons why the Government are so anxious not to publish an economic impact assessment of their Brexit proposals is that it would show that our economy will suffer under their hard Brexit, that our public finances will suffer under their hard Brexit, and that the promises that they have made about...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (16 May 2019)

Douglas Chapman: I am sure that the whole of the Government Front Bench will be aware of the bad news today from Thomas Cook, whose travel business looks unsustainable as a result of the Brexit process. There is no such thing as a good Brexit, and we can only imagine the economic disaster of a madcap no-deal Brexit. Before the European elections next week, will the Secretary of State confirm that he will...

Leaving the Eu: Economic Analysis (30 Jan 2018)

Keir Starmer: Not good enough. Here we go again: Brexit impact assessments, take two. For the past year, we have called on the Government to publish Brexit impact assessments. It is a simple argument: on decisions of this significance, Parliament is entitled to know the likely impact of the Government’s approach to Brexit and thus to hold the Government to account. The Government have repeatedly refused...

The Government's Plan for Brexit (7 Dec 2016)

Angus MacNeil: ...have woken up to the fact that they can be involved, and maybe—probably—the Supreme Court will rule that the process requires the consent of the Scottish Parliament, in which case Brexit is finished, Brexit is over and Brexit will be blocked. We see also that Europe is dictating the pace. The Barnier declaration yesterday that the UK will have 18 months to negotiate after triggering...

Business of the House (10 Jan 2019)

Ian Murray: Is it not about time that the Government started to be straight and honest with the British public? The Prime Minister has continued to repeat that there is a Brexit dividend, despite the fact that we all know there is not a Brexit dividend and, indeed, the Government’s own figures show that there is not a Brexit dividend. May I unusually ask the Leader of the House for us not to have a...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Brexit Business Hub: Brexit Business Hub (22 Mar 2019)

Sadiq Khan: The Brexit Business Resource Hub, which is part of the London Growth Hub, is an online resource to help businesses navigate Brexit. It lists Brexit sector specific news and resources, factsheets and referrals to industry reports and business preparedness checklists. This month a face to face support is being rolled out through a series of workshops that will be delivered across London to 1500...

Scottish Parliament: Withdrawal from the European Union (Article 50) (7 Feb 2017)

Ivan McKee: ...their historic mission as making Britain great again came to a head last June. As a consequence, Scotland finds itself at risk of losing the substantial benefits of the European internal market. Brexit was not the preferred option of the great majority of Scots or members of this Parliament, including the majority of Tory members. However, it falls to us to sort out the mess. This week, we...

Written Answers — Department for International Trade: Trade (26 Sep 2019)

the Earl of Courtown: It has not proved possible to respond to this question in the time available before Prorogation. Ministers will correspond directly with the Member. The Government is accelerating Brexit preparations so that it is ready to leave the EU on 31 October, whatever the circumstances. The UK is ready to continue trading on day 1 of Brexit and will show it can globally trade its way to prosperity,...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Impact on Labour Supply) (24 Apr 2019)

Graeme Dey: “No Deal Brexit—Economic Implications for Scotland”, which the Scottish Government published on 21 February, clearly demonstrated that Brexit would be catastrophic for jobs and investment in Scotland. Brexit creates risks around the confidence and competitiveness of our businesses, their ability to plan and invest with certainty, and potential drastic increases in unemployment levels....

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Boris Johnson: Mr Speaker, thank you. As I commend this statement to the House, I say it is time to get Brexit done. Get Brexit done, so we respect the referendum. Get Brexit done, so we can move on to deal with the people’s priorities—the NHS, the cost of living. Let’s get Brexit done so we can start to reunite this country after the divisions of the referendum, rather than having another one. It is...

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Joan Ryan: ..., country before self. I was not sent here by my constituents to make them poorer or to put their jobs and their healthcare at risk. That is our overriding priority—we are here to stop a no-deal Brexit. This is not about whether we are remainers or Brexiteers. Many people who voted for Brexit would continue to do so, but not for a no-deal Brexit. There is no majority in the country or...

European Council (24 Oct 2016)

Rosie Winterton: In preparation for the Council meeting, did the Prime Minister commission any English regional impact assessments of Brexit? DB Cargo UK, whose headquarters are in Doncaster, last week announced 893 redundancies, stating, and I quote from a letter to the ASLEF trade union: “The Brexit effect means investment decisions on major infrastructure projects...have been delayed or stopped...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Ministry of Defence: Brexit (9 Sep 2019)

Mark Lancaster: Local government plays a vital role in preparing the country to be fully ready for Brexit on 31 October. We have stepped up our preparedness significantly and speak regularly to councils and partners, including through the Local Government Brexit Delivery Board and a network of nine regional chief executives. The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government leads this engagement....

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (22 Oct 2019)

Justine Greening: ...important new political arrangement and mechanism, with no say over whether it happens to them. Equally, it is unacceptable for the rest of the UK to face the same situation, going into a form of Brexit that many people who campaigned for Brexit, including Nigel Farage, who heads the Brexit party, feel is not the Brexit they campaigned for. He has called this deal Brexit in name only. I...
