Written Answers — Prime Minister: Brexit (31 Jan 2017)

Richard Burden: To ask the Prime Minister, whether she has received a copy of the Birmingham Students' Brexit Manifesto; and if she will make a statement.

Occupied Palestinian Territories: Israeli Settlements (9 Feb 2017)

Richard Burden: the occupied west bank from Israel itself? Secondly, as settlements are illegal, should not there be a clear message from the Government that any trade preferences, either before or after Brexit, do not apply to settlements, and that this will be enforced? UK businesses should not collude with illegality through any financial dealings with settlements or through the import of...

Backbench Business: Road Traffic Law Enforcement — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (23 Feb 2017)

Richard Burden: my hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, Riverside about ensuring that cross-border work on road safety, particularly in relation to the European Union, is maintained at a high level and that Brexit does not jeopardise or undermine that. Will the Government also think about what levers can be used to incentivise further the uptake of telematics or black boxes and the use of technology...

Sky/21ST Century Fox: Proposed Merger: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill (6 Mar 2017)

Richard Burden: ...Secretary of State at the start of the debate, that they have no plans to pursue any further privatisation of NATS. There will, of course, be questions to address in Committee about the impact that Brexit may have on the safe and efficient management of our skies. Likewise, the Bill’s provisions relating to the air travel organiser’s licence arise from a European directive and offer...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Richard Moriarty and John de Vial gave evidence. (14 Mar 2017)

Richard Burden: ...single European sky framework. That, presumably, could bring a number of initiatives under it that would be relevant to the provisions in this Bill. Am I right about that? What could the impact of Brexit be on this area of the Bill?

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Richard Moriarty and John de Vial gave evidence. (14 Mar 2017)

Richard Burden: Q A final couple of questions from me, and it is back to Brexit again. A lot of the changes in the Bill arise out of the package travel directive. From what you have said, some of our domestic ATOL protection is superior to what is in the package travel directive anyway, but are there any implications of Brexit for what this Bill brings in?

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Public charging points: access and connection (16 Mar 2017)

Richard Burden: ...on forecourts. A wide range of different connecting components will be impractical and create confusion on forecourts. It seems to me that the Government must also ensure, particularly with Brexit coming down the tracks, that regulatory divergence regarding those connecting components does not develop between the UK and the EU, and that consistency with the EU regulations and standards...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Public charging points: access and connection (16 Mar 2017)

Richard Burden: ...will be the making or the breaking of whether they incentivise the switch to plug-in vehicles. I am also pleased that he recognised that there is a European dimension here. Whatever happens on Brexit, we must not get a range of specifications for charge points, be they in motorway services areas or anywhere else in this country, that simply do not work on the continent of Europe, and vice...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Air travel organisers’ licences (21 Mar 2017)

Richard Burden: ...that the amendment talks about a year, which is because we want to get that ball rolling. As with so many other things, the environment is changing—that is particularly the case in relation to Brexit. ATOL will still be there post-Brexit, although when we discuss the next group of amendments we may explore possible changes. The package travel directive will no doubt still be there for...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Air travel organisers’ licences (21 Mar 2017)

Richard Burden: ...the Government need to consider. I am grateful to the Minister for committing to a review of the provisions. I am pleased about that, but the fact is that none of us really knows what the impact of Brexit will be.

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Air travel organisers’ licences (21 Mar 2017)

Richard Burden: Welcome back to the Chair, Ms Ryan. When we adjourned for lunch this morning, we were concluding discussion about the possible impact of Brexit on the clause relating to ATOL— air travel organisers’ licence—and its relationship with the package travel directive 2015. The simple fact is that we do not know how Brexit will affect the issues covered by the clause. We do know that ATOL will...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Air Travel Trust (21 Mar 2017)

Richard Burden: ...harmonising EU and UK regulations. Instead, it is a dormant power that the Government will hold in order to make considerable changes to ATOL, in particular to the Air Travel Trust. That is where Brexit perhaps does come in, because were such changes to happen, they would most likely be in the event of leaving the European Union. During one of our evidence sessions, we heard from Richard...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Membership of European Aviation Safety Agency (23 Mar 2017)

Richard Burden: ...apply. I hope that the Minister will reflect on that when considering these new clauses. Finally, new clause 13 seeks to report on whether we expect to be part of the single aviation market after Brexit. As the Minister and his Department will know, aviation is in many ways distinct from other areas of the economy. We must realise that clarifying these three relationships has to be a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Leaving the EU: Cabotage (30 Mar 2017)

Richard Burden: The Prime Minister told the House yesterday that she will “deliver certainty” to UK businesses about their position post-Brexit, but without agreement on the principles behind cabotage, trucking companies are already warning that new customer checks will gridlock roads leading to the channel ports. UK-based airlines are already warning that they may need to relocate their bases across the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Richard Burden: .... Of course, we need legislation to ensure that EU rights and protections are incorporated into UK law so that we avoid gaps being opened up in the spectrum of rules and regulations at the point of Brexit. There is consensus in the House about that, so why have Ministers brought forward a Bill that undermines rather than builds on that consensus? It is not as if they have not had time to...

Iran: Vauxhall (Redundancies) (16 Oct 2017)

Richard Burden: ...uncertainty is a key consideration? Will she not accept what she has been told time and again—that ambiguous and contradictory messages from the Government about Britain’s future as regards the Brexit negotiations are making a bad situation still worse?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: UK Automotive Sector (12 Dec 2017)

Richard Burden: ...take much for disruption at the channel ports to completely clog up the south-east, losing millions and millions of pounds. What guarantee can the Secretary of State give the automotive sector that Brexit will not result in any extra customs checks that will clog up the industry?

UK Automotive Industry: Job Losses — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Richard Burden: ...of how this industry literally drives economic growth in this country. In the short time I have available, I will focus on two areas, both of which my hon. Friend covered: first, the challenges of Brexit, and secondly the transition away from petrol and diesel production. As he said, when we have over 1,000 trucks coming in across the channel every day, delivering £35 million worth of...

UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Richard Burden: The hon. Gentleman talks about Britain’s post-Brexit trading relationship with Israel. Does he agree that the definitions in the EU-Israel association agreement, particularly in relation to the settlements, should carry through into any bilateral trading relationship that Britain has with Israel? The trade preferences available under the EU-Israel association agreement do not extend to...

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Future Relationship Between the UK and the EU (18 Jul 2018)

Richard Burden: ...and Traders, the Motorsports Industry Association and the RAC Foundation. I want to say a few words about why the stakes are so high for that industry and sector in terms of getting our approach to Brexit right. That is not a narrow parliamentary debating point. It is not about which faction is on the up or on the way down in the Conservative party—or indeed in any other organisation. We...
