Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Department for Exiting the European Union: Brexit (2 Oct 2019)

James Duddridge: 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...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Preparations) (6 Feb 2019)

Adam Tomkins: I thank the cabinet secretary for the early sight of his statement. Only in the through-the-looking-glass world of nationalist doublespeak could we have condemnation of a no-deal Brexit coupled with condemnation of the only deal that is on the table that would avoid a no-deal Brexit. I agree with much of what the cabinet secretary said about the dangers of a no-deal Brexit. I do not support a...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [5th Allotted Day] (9 Jan 2019)

Owen Smith: ...from debt. It will not be forgiven or forgotten if they saddle future generations with debt. Nor will it be forgotten or forgiven if my party does anything less than tell the whole truth about Brexit and maintain our opposition to it in principle and in practice. My hon. Friend the Member for City of Chester (Christian Matheson) wrote earlier this week: “If we thought Brexit was wrong...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Place in Europe (20 Dec 2016)

Ivan McKee: I welcome the proposal from the Scottish Government that would enable Scotland to stay in the single market after Brexit. That would do much to mitigate the economic damage of Brexit to individuals and businesses, in Glasgow Provan and across Scotland. The proposal would also be good for businesses across the UK, enabling them to trade in the EU single market after Brexit, using Scotland as a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Oct 2018)

Peter Bone: I always thought the Chancellor was a bit iffy about Brexit, but how wrong I was. This week he announced a Brexit dividend Budget if we come out of the European Union with no deal. He will be able to cut tariffs, abolish VAT on certain products, and reallocate the £39 billion that he was going to give to the EU to this country, cutting taxes, improving public services, and lowering debt....

Televised Election Debates — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (7 Jan 2019)

Tommy Sheppard: ...other than the two main parties in the United Kingdom. That needs to be understood and built into the process. Before Christmas, when we had the shenanigans about the debate on what to do about Brexit—it was not meant to be an election debate—we had a situation whereby the SNP, the third largest party in this House and the second largest political party in the United Kingdom in terms...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Leaving the EU: Funding for Further Education (19 Dec 2016)

Natalie McGarry: ...leading up to our departure from the EU. Further education institutions in Glasgow—including Glasgow Kelvin College in my constituency—and across the UK will need that certainty in any post-Brexit scenario. Those colleges have benefited from European social funding to the tune of £1.5 million this year alone. Brexit was not a matter of Scotland’s choosing or of Glasgow’s choosing....

Brexit: Agriculture - Question (14 Jan 2019)

Lord Wigley: My Lords, I also declare my interests as a fully paid-up member of the Farmers Union of Wales. Do the Government accept that a no-deal Brexit would be a disaster for Welsh hill farmers, 90% of whose lamb exports go to European Union markets, which would be killed by tariff barriers? Does the Government’s no-deal Brexit emergency package include provision for intervention buying of lamb at a...

Flybmi (18 Feb 2019)

Tom Brake: This is clearly very bad news for staff and passengers. I know the Minister does not like mentioning the B-word—Brexit—but the fact is that Flybmi has said that Brexit uncertainty was a factor. Not the total reason but a factor, as it was for Jaguar Land Rover, Ford and, as we will no doubt find out shortly, Honda. Is it not time for the Prime Minister to do two things: one, rule out no...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (22 May 2019)

Phillip Lee: If polling is to be believed, the winning party in tomorrow’s Euro elections will be the Brexit party. This party, in contrast to the Vote Leave campaign in 2016, has clearly stated that a no-deal Brexit is its policy. On the basis of normal turnout, that means between 6 million and 7 million people will have voted for a no deal, which begs the question: what of the other 10 million Brexit...

Scottish Parliament: Healthy Food (Support for Small Retailers) (12 Sep 2018)

Mairi Gougeon: David Torrance is absolutely right to raise concerns about the impact of Brexit on small grocery and convenience stores. To be honest, Brexit could have a number of harmful impacts that we do not know about yet. There are an awful lot of unknown unknowns. Several bodies, such as the British Retail Consortium and the Institute for Fiscal Studies, have predicted that a hard Brexit could cause...

Scottish Parliament: Supreme Court Judgment (Article 50) (25 Jan 2017)

Willie Rennie: I thank the minister for an advance copy of his statement. I gently suggest that he is missing the opportunity from yesterday’s judgment. The Westminster Parliament can now influence the Brexit process in a way that the Conservative Government was previously hotly contesting it could. That means that we can build the case for a Brexit deal referendum, so that the British people can reject...

Questions to the Mayor of London — No-Deal Brexit & London’s economy: No-Deal Brexit & London’s economy (25 Sep 2019)

Sadiq Khan: Thank you, Chair. You have ruled this question in order and so it must be appropriate, Chair, for me to answer this question, which is on a no-deal Brexit. According to the Bank of England and the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR), there is a very real risk of a recession if the UK crashes out of the EU without a deal.  A no-deal Brexit would cause huge disruption, making us poorer and...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Referendum (14 Sep 2016)

Adam Tomkins: The next section of my speech, Mr Scott will be pleased to know, is called “What Brexit means”. Let me start by explaining what I think Brexit does not mean. Members: Ah. Lawyers always define what things are by reference to what they are not—members know that. There is a fallacy—a false antithesis—that is gaining ground in Scottish public debate and which needs to be arrested. It...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Leaving the EU: Defence and Military Aerospace Industry (9 Jul 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: Major defence companies are clearly deeply concerned about the effect of this Government’s Brexit policy on their operations in the UK. Rolls-Royce has started to move some functions to Germany while the chief executive of Airbus has said that the Government have “no clue on how to execute Brexit without severe harm.” Given that the man who was meant to be leading the UK’s approach to...

Scottish Parliament: UK Brexit Strategy (Economic Impact) (14 Dec 2016)

Keith Brown: The UK Government’s Brexit strategy—I use the word “strategy” in its loosest possible sense—has to date increased the chances of a so-called hard Brexit. Scottish Government analysis that was published on 23 August, drawing on a research base from a range of external organisations, suggests that, under a hard Brexit, Scottish gross domestic product could be up to £11.2 billion per...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Helen Hayes: ...to remain in the European Union, and I have been clear in my commitment to continue to speak up for their views. In Dulwich and West Norwood, we are deeply concerned about the impact of Brexit on the economy, on our public services, on our rights and protections at work, on our justice system, on our environment, and on our local communities. We are concerned about the practical impact of...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Impact on Aberdeen and North-east) (28 Mar 2019)

Derek Mackay: Brexit is already impacting the Scottish economy, with the associated uncertainty impacting business and consumer confidence and leading to increased stockpiling and reduced investment intentions. We recently published a report showing that all areas in Scotland will be affected by Brexit, especially by a no-deal Brexit, with the north-east in particular being hit. The report showed...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Response to European Union Exit Vote in Westminster) (19 Feb 2019)

Michael Russell: ...government as much as we can do. It is very rich for a Tory to criticise a lack of funding for local government given the Tories’ attitude, first, to the budget in this place, and secondly, to Brexit. That is particularly so when the criticism comes from a Brexiteer—an original Brexiteer, I believe—[ Interruption .] Or is Rachael Hamilton a born-again Brexiteer? Did she espouse...
