Scottish Parliament: Economic Growth (Update) (8 May 2019)

Derek Mackay: That assessment is accurate. In particular, a no-deal Brexit threatens to create recession, business contraction, reduced exports and soaring unemployment from the current record-low level of 3.3 per cent. Any form of Brexit will damage Scotland’s economy, and a no-deal Brexit would be catastrophic.

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (No Deal) (5 Sep 2019)

John Mason: Will the member accept that, if the message from the referendum had been a 90 per cent to 10 per cent vote for Brexit, that would have shown support for a harder Brexit, but that there having been such a close vote clearly shows support for a soft Brexit?

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (5 Sep 2019)

Rosena Allin-Khan: Thousands of Tooting residents have signed my local petition against this Government’s dangerous Brexit plans. Like me, Tooting wants to remain. The Brexit Secretary voted against legislation to block a disastrous no deal. Tooting is absolutely furious. Why is he trying to drive this country blindly off the Brexit cliff?

Preparations for Leaving the EU (8 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: Business takes a variety of views on Brexit, and indeed on a no-deal Brexit, but I have yet to meet a single business man, woman or organisation that thinks that a no-deal Brexit would be worse than a Jeremy Corbyn Government.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Jan 2017)

Theresa May: ...around the world with the EU, America and other countries negotiating good free trade deals for this country that will bring prosperity to this country. The right hon. Gentleman wants to talk about Brexit, but I have to say to him that he is the leader of his party and he cannot even agree with his shadow Chancellor about Brexit. The shadow Chancellor cannot agree with the shadow Brexit...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Oct 2019)

Dominic Raab: I can give my right hon. Friend that reassurance. I do understand, and we have always managed to stay on civil, cordial, even amiable terms throughout all the challenges of Brexit, which we on both sides of the House should seek to do. Parliament of course has a crucial role to play. I do not think anyone can legitimately say that Parliament, with the stalwart support of the Speaker, has not...

Business of the House (24 Oct 2019)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: ...an extraordinarily good and valid point, which relates to what I was saying about the Scottish National party—that it is very straightforward about its position, which is that it does not want Brexit. The Labour party is in a more difficult position because some of its voters want Brexit, particularly in the midlands and the north of England, and some of its voters, especially in...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (1 Feb 2018)

Vicky Foxcroft: The independent “Preparing for Brexit” report commissioned by the Mayor of London found that a hard Brexit will lead to the loss of 56,500 more jobs in London alone than if the UK remains in the single market and customs union. Does the Minister agree that that is clear evidence that a hard Brexit will be catastrophic for jobs?

Seaborne Freight (11 Feb 2019)

Drew Hendry: Throughout this ridiculous Brexit shambles, Brexiteers have liked to lean on historical events to justify the metaphors for some of their Brexit fantasies. Was this calamity actually engineered by the Secretary of State, so that he could paint himself as some kind of latter-day Horatio Nelson—“I see no ships”? Well, we see no competence. Will he resign?

Scottish Parliament: UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Legal Continuity) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (21 Mar 2018)

Anas Sarwar: I am used to not being popular. [ Laughter .] Amendment 63 seeks to put a duty on the Government to conduct an independent evaluation of the effect of Brexit on health and social care. It replicates an amendment that Joanna Cherry MP lodged at Westminster, which had the support of more than 60 organisations in Scotland, including Camphill Scotland, the Health and Social Care Alliance...

Economic Growth: South-west — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (5 Feb 2019)

Jake Berry: It is a privilege to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Owen. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for South West Devon (Sir Gary Streeter) on securing this important debate. It is not about Brexit, but if I were channelling a famous son of Devon—Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who wrote “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner”—I would say that Conservative Members believe that Brexit is full...

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Spring Statement (Implications for Economy and Public Spending) (19 Mar 2019)

James Kelly: I thank the cabinet secretary for advance sight of his statement. I agree with him about the prospect of a chaotic Brexit. It is a scandal of gigantic proportions—stemming from a failure of the Prime Minister’s leadership—that, 10 days from exit day, there is absolutely no clarity about what is going to happen about Brexit. Previously, the cabinet secretary has indicated that a no-deal...

Bereavement Benefits - Question (11 Jun 2018)

Lord Tomlinson: In reply to an earlier question, the noble Baroness suggested that Brexit would make no difference to the circumstances that have been discussed. As the Minister responsible for Brexit has failed to give us clear answers on almost every aspect of Brexit, can she now spell out for us the specific basis on which she gave the House that assurance?

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

Sadiq Khan: Chair, I am astonished that the Assembly Member does not realise the link that Brexit has to housing and to young people. Had he read, for example, the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors’ (RICS) report? It talks about the impacts of Brexit on housebuilding. Had the Assembly Member read the Bank of England’s report, it talks about the impact of Brexit on housebuilding. It is really...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Leaving the EEA (16 Jan 2018)

Stephen Kinnock: The Chancellor has said that he wants a jobs-first Brexit. Given that 80% of the British economy is in the services sector, and given that the EEA-based model of Brexit is the only one that gives maximum access for our services industries, does the Minister agree that an EEA-based Brexit is the only viable option for our country?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Apr 2019)

Theresa May: Every Member of this House is involved in Brexit. I want to deliver Brexit. I want to deliver Brexit in an orderly way. I want to do it as soon as possible. I want to do it without us having to fight European parliamentary elections. To do that, we need to get an agreement through this House on the withdrawal agreement and a deal. The House has rejected every proposal that has gone before...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration (5 Dec 2018)

Patrick Harvie: I agree with Mr Findlay’s analysis and his predictions about what will happen if Brexit goes ahead. What the people he is talking about genuinely need is the transformation of domestic economic policy. Does Mr Findlay agree that any Brexit will make that much-needed transformation harder, not easier, and that we should be standing up against Brexit in all its forms?

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Channel Ferries (28 Mar 2019)

Baroness Randerson: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the contracts they signed with ferry operators for the provision of services in the event of a no-deal Brexit specified the date of Brexit as 29 March; whether those contracts would have to be renegotiated if Brexit is delayed; and if so, what estimate they have made of the potential cost of any such renegotiation.

Scottish Parliament: Cabinet (Meetings) (24 Nov 2016)

The First Minister: Yes, I think that that is absolutely correct. Yesterday, perhaps for the first time, we started to see laid bare the true cost of Brexit. Rather than there being the promise of £350 million extra a week for the national health service, we saw that the additional borrowing alone that has been caused by Brexit will amount to £225 million a week. That is the Brexit con...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Article 50 (8 Mar 2017)

Jonathan Edwards: In his evidence to the Brexit Select Committee yesterday, Cabinet Secretary Mark Drakeford also said that the Welsh Government were, disgracefully, not made aware of the UK Government’s 12-point Brexit plan or their White Paper. What is the Secretary of State doing to ensure that the Plaid Cymru-Welsh Government Brexit White Paper is fed into the article 50 letter and accompanying documents?
