Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: VAT: women’s sanitary products (7 Jul 2016)

Rebecca Long-Bailey: abolish the tampon tax was made by the Vote Leave campaign during the referendum campaigning season. It was even suggested that that would be included in a mini-Queen’s Speech following a Brexit vote. However, as we have the Bill before us today, we can take steps without that being strictly necessary; I am sure that the Minister understands the clear, basic point. The explanatory...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: VAT: Isle of Man charities (7 Jul 2016)

Rebecca Long-Bailey: ...the 1979 customs and excise agreement with the Isle of Man. It would be helpful if the Minister could confirm whether he has yet had any discussions with the Government that suggest that, following Brexit, the principal VAT directive will not—subject, of course, to the terms of any subsequent trade deal—apply to the UK. The Minister may also like to clarify any early thinking about how...

Brexit: Horizon 2020 and Erasmus - Question (7 Jul 2016)

Brexit: Horizon 2020 and Erasmus - Question

Select Committee on Defence (7 Jul 2016)

Clive Lewis: ...members for a comprehensive and thorough report on this important area of the UK’s and Europe’s defence and security. I note that this inquiry did not have time to consider the implications of Brexit in full. However, given that the Putin regime’s tactics are often geared towards destabilising Europe as a whole, does he agree that it is vital for the UK to ensure, particularly at the...

Business of the House (7 Jul 2016)

Pete Wishart: ...still have not had one on this Government’s one. In the two weeks since this country made the decision on the European Union there has been no Government-sponsored debate on the EU referendum or Brexit. It is almost a dereliction of duty. I do not know whether it is a case of denial from the Government or they genuinely do not have a clue, although I suspect it is a combination of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Farming Businesses: Resilience (7 Jul 2016)

Kerry McCarthy: I tabled five written questions in the past week asking what assessment had been made of the impact of Brexit on a range of DEFRA-related areas, from air pollution to waste, water, rural payments, fisheries, food standards and food safety. I got one answer back that basically said that everything remains in place and the negotiations are up to the future Prime Minister, which to me shows a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Rural Development Programmes (7 Jul 2016)

Jonathan Reynolds: One claim from some leave campaigners was that Brexit would lower food prices. Now that Brexit is the decision the country has made, will the Minister tell us what options are available to deliver them?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (7 Jul 2016)

John Nicolson: Scotland’s food and drink industry exports £725 million-worth of produce to the European Union. Given the disastrous Brexit vote, what impact does the Minister believe any restrictions on the seasonal workforce will have on the industry north of the border?

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (6 Jul 2016)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: ...I think that this is a detailed example of just the kind of important issue that will need to be addressed during our renegotiation. I was asked why there was no plan B and why we did not create a Brexit unit before. I say gently to noble Lords that we have been round that particular house many times before in our debates, particularly when we were debating the passage of the referendum...

EU Nationals in the Uk: NHS Spending (6 Jul 2016)

Ben Gummer: ...campaign. It is important that we bring the country together, but that does not mean that we should not bring some sort of scrutiny to those claims over the next few years, when the effects of Brexit will be played out and when our constituents will feel those effects in their pockets and in the security of their families, although some will say that that will be to the positive and others...

EU Nationals in the Uk (6 Jul 2016)

Emily Thornberry: ...on negotiating an exit deal with such an apparent lack of trust in the good faith of our partners, or former partners. If, as has been promised, the UK can expect the best possible deal in the Brexit negotiations, we really must do better than that. As has been said throughout the debate, it is fundamentally wrong to treat valued members of our society and our communities as mere...

Olympic Games: Doping: Electric and Hybrid Electric Cars (6 Jul 2016)

Alan Brown: ...pretty much agreed with everything he said, including his recommendations and conclusions. He mentioned the need for continued tough regulations and targets on climate change and air quality after Brexit. I agree with that, but from a Scottish perspective I hope Scotland will remain in the EU, as the Scottish people wish. The standard motion in a Westminster Hall debate is “That this...

Report of the Iraq Inquiry - Statement (6 Jul 2016)

Baroness Ludford: ...not a striking parallel between the failure to plan for an aftermath in 2003 and our worries about the failure to plan for the aftermath of the recent EU referendum? I want this to be not about Brexit but about the machinery of government. What has been learned in 13 years about how that machinery must be ready to go in that context, after an event?

Broadband in Wales — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (6 Jul 2016)

Chi Onwurah: ...anything can happen in these extraordinary times, but I must say that concrete answers from the Minister would be an extraordinary conclusion. We face a period of uncertainty—I am talking about Brexit rather than the football now. As we start to think about our plans for negotiating to leave the European Union, which have already been mentioned—although, astonishingly, I understand...

Bilateral Aid Review - Question (6 Jul 2016)

Baroness Northover: My Lords, is DfID now looking at the implications of Brexit and the potential end of the UK’s major influence over the EU’s aid budget? If so, what are the implications for what the UK might do bilaterally now?

Report of the Iraq Inquiry (6 Jul 2016)

Angus Robertson: ...857: “The UK did not achieve its objectives”. Lack of planning has been evident since, in relation to Afghanistan, Libya and Syria; most recently there has been absolutely no plan whatever for Brexit. When will UK Governments of Tory or Labour hue actually start learning from the mistakes of the past so that we are not condemned to repeat them? I hope and expect that in the months...

Artistic Remuneration for Online Content — [Mr James Gray in the Chair] (6 Jul 2016)

Ed Vaizey: ...I was trying to make at all. The point I was trying to make was that countries such as France and Germany clearly have very strong views on the issue, and their voices are heard. The situation pre-Brexit was that the UK, France and Germany had slightly different positions on some of these issues but were all influential voices, and I was engaging quite closely with both the French...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: EU Referendum (6 Jul 2016)

Nicholas Dakin: I thank the Secretary of State for that answer. Now that the Brexit decision has been made, does he think that it will be easier for the Scottish and UK Governments to support the Scottish steel industry in tackling things like energy costs, procurement and business rates?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Womenomics Report (6 Jul 2016)

Alistair Carmichael: As we tackle the economic challenges that face Scotland as a result of Brexit, removing barriers to the full economic contribution of women to Scotland’s economy becomes more important than ever. Professor Sawers’ report offers the Government a road map. Will the Minister ensure that someone in the Scotland Office blows the dust off it, and implements some of the very good, solid...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Steel Industry (6 Jul 2016)

Peter Bone: Brexit will be helpful to the British steel industry, including the steel industry in Scotland. It was a good day when we came out. Will the Minister welcome it?
