Lord Black of Brentwood: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether, in the event of a no-deal Brexit, ATA Carnets would be required for musicians who are travelling to perform in multiple EU countries for their musical instruments which are transported either (1) as hand luggage or (2) in trucks.
Nick Thomas-Symonds: International action is, of course, required to tackle terrorism. Paragraph 78 of the political declaration, as it stands, refers to a “balanced security partnership” after Brexit. But the reality is that, three years on, the Government are no further forward in agreeing the security treaty promised by the former Prime Minister and have not put forward any ideas about how to reconcile the...
Nadhim Zahawi: ...increased year-on-year since 2015. Average anxiety is low and has decreased since 2012. The department’s mission is to build a stronger, greener future. This means preparing businesses for Brexit and the opportunities that lie ahead, leading the world in tackling climate change, solving the Grand Challenges facing our society and making the UK the best place to work and grow a...

In the political declaration, the UK and EU have agreed that...
Lord Taylor of Warwick: To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they intend to take to ensure the provision of healthcare for UK pensioners living in the European Union post-Brexit.
Jacob Rees-Mogg: ...words of that hymn? “e’en eternity’s too short to extol thee.” It seems to me that eternity is too short for the Opposition, because their opposition is fantasy opposition. They do not want Brexit, and, however much time we give them, they will come up with some foolish objection.
Peter Dowd: ...pointed out today, after nine years in charge of the economy, their strategy has proven to be a total failure. Nine years of austerity, combined with Tory infighting over who can deliver the worst Brexit for our economy, has made us all poorer. Wages have stagnated. The queues at food banks have grown almost as long as the incoherent responses of the Prime Minister at PMQs.
Sandy Martin: ..., picking things up and ensuring they were not left lying around. There was some discussion about local foods. The day before yesterday, I was rather distressed to see a response from DEFRA about Brexit, saying that we will need to rely more on local food and mentioning our ability to change over to root vegetables. I would support that, but they referred to cabbages and leeks as root...
Valerie Vaz: ...we asked questions to get access to the sectoral analysis, and I wish to draw the Leader of the House’s attention to two important sectors.

The Royal Society’s analysis shows that the UK’s annual share of EU research funding has fallen by nearly a third since 2015, and the Royal...
Stephen Barclay: ..., for example, trade in endangered species, which I would have thought the House would agree on.

Chris Ruane: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to the Answer of 17 October 2019 to Question 70, how many full impact assessments for measures greater than £5 million his Department has undertaken.
