Tay Cities Deal (13 Jul 2016)

James Wharton: I congratulate the hon. Member for Dundee West (Chris Law) on his contribution. When we started I was a little concerned that we were talking about Brexit and the referendum. I was asked to discuss the Government’s support for Stirling, and I thought that we might have ventured into a debate on a different matter. Although I am in a minority in the House at the moment—I was very much a...

Investigatory Powers Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (13 Jul 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...that the financial impact of the legislation is transparent, not hidden, and to give forward confidence to those companies, whose activity in this country is already a little wobbly thanks to Brexit, that they will not at some point be hit by unexpected and unavoidable costs. As was mentioned, Amendment 89 also allows for a proper audit to ensure that operators do not provide unduly high...

Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism: [1st Allotted Day] (13 Jul 2016)

Dominic Grieve: ..., this has coloured my view as a politician ever since—that this has also had a terrible effect on public trust in us and our institutions in this country that carries itself all the way into the Brexit referendum and its aftermath. On that, I rather agreed, for once, with an article in the New Statesman. We have much to learn from this very sorry episode. The nugget I derive from it is...

Govia Thameslink Rail Service — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (13 Jul 2016)

Mims Davies: ...dangerous. I do not want to over-egg or overhype it, but I have received feedback that people are frightened and concerned. There is an economic case for us to support our businesses. We talk about Brexit and the problems that could affect our businesses, but the reality is that problems are happening now due to this franchise. I ask the Minister for a kind response and to think about all...

Orgreave: Inquiry - Question (13 Jul 2016)

Lord Clark of Windermere: ...I feel that there ought to be a general inquiry about the policing of the miners’ strike—because it is one of the reasons for the disenchantment with politics that we saw three weeks ago in the Brexit vote.

Universal Credit: Rent Arrears - Question (13 Jul 2016)

Lord Kirkwood of Kirkhope: ...? This is important. By a country mile, this is the biggest change programme that Her Majesty’s Government are bringing forward. It is mission-critical for the United Kingdom, particularly after Brexit, and it is important that we get it right.

EU Referendum: UK Steel Industry — [Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (13 Jul 2016)

Stephen Doughty: ...I hope she will also express clearly to the Department of Energy and Climate Change, other Departments and the new Prime Minister. On another fundamental issue, the debate was about the impact of Brexit and the referendum decision on the steel industry, and the Minister and other colleagues who have taken part in the debate today have outlined the potential risks if we do not get the right...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Rail Links: Wales and the South-west (13 Jul 2016)

Geraint Davies: ...connectivity between south Wales and the south-west than there is between south Wales and north Wales. Will he undertake to speed up the electrification of the railways, particularly at a time when Brexit is leading to considerable uncertainty about inward investment in Wales?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: EU Referendum: Political Consequences (13 Jul 2016)

Alun Cairns: The hon. Lady raises an important question. Within a week of the Brexit referendum I met a number of business leaders in Cardiff and last week I met a number of business leaders in north Wales. I was struck by their pragmatism and approach—the positivity they were showing. One of the most positive quotes was that entrepreneurs “thrive on change.” They recognise that we are not turning...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: EU Referendum: Regeneration Projects (13 Jul 2016)

Gerald Jones: ...Will the Secretary of State assure me that he will do all that he can and work with the Welsh Government to provide support and ensure that that project and many like it will not be jeopardised by Brexit?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Jul 2016)

Danny Kinahan: Thank you. Brexit really threatens the Union. Will the Prime Minister work with his successors to ensure that we have somebody that will pull together all the countries of the Union and the overseas territories so that we can all work and thrive together?

Iraq Inquiry - Motion to Take Note (12 Jul 2016)

Baroness Northover: ...come as a surprise. Andrew Rawnsley, writing in the Observer on Sunday and seeking to understand why all the main political parties, the vast range of experts and others were not heeded on Brexit, points to the effect of the Iraq invasion as underpinning the lack of trust in politics today. The noble Lord, Lord Morgan, in his coruscating critique, took the same view. As I went back to my...

The Oxford-MK-Cambridge Arc (12 Jul 2016)

Grahame Morris: ...-east of England. The gross value added output of those cities is almost equal to that of the northern powerhouse. Given recent events and the UK’s intent to leave the EU following the recent Brexit vote, the continued success of those economies is even more vital to the success of the public finances. If I may, I would like to put a few questions to the Minister. I would like to ask, in...

Sats Results (12 Jul 2016)

Rupa Huq: ...proper curriculum has not been in place, and the marking is all over the place. It is not testing per se that is wrong; it is the maladministration of this year’s key stage 2 SATs. In the recent Brexit debate the Lord Chancellor said we have had enough of experts. That is a real mistake; we ignore the professionals at our peril. These are people at the chalk face. Educationists, heads...

EU Referendum: Energy and Environment (12 Jul 2016)

Phil Boswell: ...on the problems of Hinkley C. As anyone can see, this history of successive short-termist UK Governments continuously moving the legislative goalposts can only undermine investor confidence. Brexit will only serve to exacerbate that problem further, which was a point well made by the hon. Member for Brent North (Barry Gardiner), who is no longer in the Chamber. On energy security, last...

Universities: Erasmus Programme - Question (12 Jul 2016)

Baroness Coussins: My Lords, post-Brexit, will the Government commit either to signing up as a partner country in the Erasmus programme, as Switzerland is, or to putting an equivalent opportunity in place so that graduate employability is not seriously damaged?

Wales: Economic Investment Projects - Question (12 Jul 2016)

Lord Wigley: given to Wales in the recent Euro 2016 cup? This is already bringing an economic spin-off for Wales by way of a surge in tourist inquiries. As the Government are committed to delivering Brexit, will the Minister confirm that they will also honour the commitments on which the Brexit vote was secured, including the vow that the European structural funds from which Wales is currently...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: EU Citizens Resident in the United Kingdom (Right to Stay) (12 Jul 2016)

Tom Brake: ...of the European Union; and for connected purposes. On 24 June, 3 million EU citizens in the UK and 1.3 million British citizens in the EU woke up to an uncertain future because while the Brexiteers had pithy slogans aplenty, our Government had no plan for the long-term future of EU citizens in the UK or the UK post-Brexit. EU citizens were unable to vote in the referendum and were...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Departmental Trade Specialists (12 Jul 2016)

Nigel Evans: The incoming Prime Minister told us yesterday that she intends to make a success of Brexit and part of that is clearly going to be trade talks with countries throughout the world. Has the message already gone out to our embassies and high commissions that even before Brexit happens initial talks about trade should start with other countries?
