Scottish Parliament: Scottish Fiscal Commission Forecasts (11 Jan 2018)

Derek Mackay: I agree—[ Interruption .] I hear the Conservatives chortle that no one else agrees, but wiser Tory ministers, even, are coming to the conclusion that a hard Brexit and a no-deal Brexit might well be profoundly damaging to the UK economy and would, in turn, be damaging to Scotland’s economy. It is right to say that the more powers we have, the more we can engage and make the right...

Scottish Parliament: Health and Care (Staffing) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (6 Dec 2018)

David Torrance: Brexit that is having the impact right now as we see, for example, a UK transplant surgeon who has performed more than 1,000 operations leaving and citing Brexit as the problem. When we see the number of specialist doctors dropping to an eight-year low because of Brexit, we know that we have real problems right now and that there will be more problems in the future. We have already seen that...

Exiting the European Union: No Deal: Economic Impact (27 Jun 2019)

Diana R. Johnson: Beckie Hart, the director of Yorkshire and the Humber CBI, said recently that many firms are unaware that it is not just their relationship with EU customers that is at risk from a no-deal Brexit, but relationships across the globe. Tonight, Hull MPs and the shadow Brexit Secretary are meeting the Hull and Humber chamber of commerce to discuss our region’s economic prospects under Brexit....

Amendment of the Law (8 Mar 2017)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: The forecasts are taken from the OBR and if the hon. Gentleman looks at its rather thicker report, he will see its comments in relation to Brexit and trade deals. The OBR is still rather negative on trade deals and I think that it is wrong. I have the greatest respect for the OBR, because it is the one body that during the Brexit campaign behaved properly and within its remit and did not...

Britain’s Place in the World (15 Oct 2019)

Patricia Gibson: I was listening very carefully when the Minister was talking about the importance of being positive about Brexit because the Institute for Fiscal Studies said last week that the UK is £60 billion worse off already as a result of Brexit, and we have not left yet, and it also said that the UK economy is now 2.5% to 3% smaller than it would be had the Brexit process not been started....

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union - Statement (10 Oct 2016)

Lord Hain: My Lords, why does the Minister say that Parliament should remain in control after Brexit, quite rightly, but not before Brexit? This is not a question of seeking to overturn the referendum result nor of parading your negotiating credentials in public beforehand. It is about asserting Parliament’s fundamental right, including this House’s right, to approve the terms of Brexit because...

Brexit: Stability of the Union - Motion to Take Note (17 Jan 2019)

the Earl of Kinnoull: ...meantime, nothing has happened to the memorandum of understanding, yet since it was published in October 2013, we have had the Scottish referendum, the Scotland Act 2016, the Wales Act 2017 and now Brexit. The landscape has changed and is changing further. Much more power over many more areas resides with devolved structures, yet the Government have not followed up and have ignored the...

Leaving the EU (21 Jan 2019)

George Freeman: May I welcome the Prime Minister’s statement, particularly her commitment to waive the fee required to be paid by European citizens and her commitment to reach out, cross-party, in pursuit of a Brexit deal? We have to honour that referendum. Does she agree with me that while the position of the Leader of the Opposition on Brexit is crystal clear—he is for leave up north and remain down...

Destitution Domestic Violence Concession (Eligibility): Article 50 Extension (20 Mar 2019)

Justine Greening: My hon. Friend is absolutely right on that, and I will come to it shortly in my closing remarks. The extension that we require clearly needs to be for a purpose. There are only so many versions of Brexit. We can do a clean-break, hard Brexit, which I know many MPs want, and I respect that. Indeed, the millions of people who voted to leave had that kind of Brexit as their expectation....

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Edward Davey: ...my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests, especially with respect to renewable energy. This might not be a Halloween Budget, but it is yet another attempt to scare Members about Brexit and to frame the Brexit question as deal or no deal. Although the Chancellor hardly mentioned Brexit, the underlying message is that there is something for us if we back this Budget—tax...

Bill Presented: EU Withdrawal Agreement (18 Dec 2018)

Wera Hobhouse: ...the vote that should have taken place last week was deeply irresponsible. It is obviously the Prime Minister’s aim to blackmail MPs by saying that other than her deal, there is only a no-deal Brexit. This is playing Russian roulette. The Prime Minister has repeatedly refused to consider any other options. Parliament is now at an impasse. There is currently no majority either for the...

Previous Business – Commons: Select Committee (20 Jun 2018)

Home Affairs: Post-Brexit migration policy. 2:30 pm; The Grimond Room, Portcullis House
Witnesses: Guy Verhofstadt MEP, Brexit Coordinator and Chair, Brexit Steering Group, European Parliament

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: EU-derived Employment Rights (13 Dec 2016)

Jack Dromey: Given the sorry history of Brexit broken promises, does the Minister understand the widespread cynicism expressed about the idea that rights will be protected post-Brexit, including on a continuing basis? Does she agree with the Brexit promise-breaker par excellence, the Foreign Secretary, that these crucial rights are back-breaking?

Leaving the EU: Infrastructure in Wales — [Robert Flello in the Chair] (17 Jan 2017)

Jonathan Edwards: The hon. Gentleman mentioned the Scottish Government. They produced a Brexit White Paper. The Welsh Government are about to publish their own Brexit White Paper. Is it not bizarre that the one Government responsible for delivering Brexit are not going to publish their own White Paper?

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Leaving the EU: Charities and Voluntary Sector (16 Mar 2017)

Steve Reed: The Brexit Secretary tells us that he has done no work to understand the implications for the country of a no-deal Brexit. What work has the Minister done to understand the implications of a no-deal Brexit for charities, not just in terms of funding but in terms of the sector’s extremely diverse workforce?

Uk Plans for Leaving the EU (9 Oct 2017)

Chris Ruane: Over the past 17 years, Wales has received £9 billion in grants from Europe. During the Brexit debates and the referendum, Tory Ministers said that Wales would not lose out as a result of Brexit. Can the Prime Minister tell us how much funding Wales will get—additional funding—after Brexit is completed?

European Council (23 Oct 2017)

Louise Ellman: Today the North West British Leadership Team warned about the consequences of Brexit for jobs in the region, particularly manufacturing jobs. Is the Prime Minister withholding information about the risks posed to manufacturing by a bad Brexit, or, indeed, any Brexit?

Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Feb 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Yesterday the Brexit Secretary assured the country that Brexit will not plunge Britain “into a Mad Max-style world borrowed from dystopian fiction.” Does the Prime Minister not feel that the Brexit Secretary could set the bar just a little bit higher?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Angus MacNeil: Given all that the right hon. Gentleman has been outlining, is it not fascinating that when Brexiteer MPs ask themselves about a vote on Brexit, they fear they will lose it and therefore that Brexit will be reversed? That displays no confidence in their argument at all.

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Theresa May: Of course there are many theories about Brexit and the type of Brexit we should have, but my hon. Friend is absolutely right that what we are doing is delivering a practical Brexit in reality, and we should all have concern for the jobs and livelihoods of our constituents as we do that.
