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...

Brexit Readiness: Operation Yellowhammer (25 Sep 2019)

Richard Burden: The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster may recall that the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, representing the UK auto industry, described the prospect of a no-deal Brexit as an “existential threat” to their sector. Nobody could complain that they have not made preparations for a no-deal Brexit—they have spent millions of pounds in so doing—but I have not heard them say...

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Richard Burden: The Chancellor is making a very good case about what would happen if there were a no-deal Brexit. Indeed, in his opening remarks he described it as an act of “uncertainty and economic self-harm”. Given that the companies he has talked about, which depend so much on just-in-time deliveries in the motor industry and elsewhere, are most worried and concerned about the prospect of a no-deal...

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: 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?

The Economy (24 Oct 2019)

Richard Burden: ...UK’s aerospace sector and has operations in no less than nine EU member states. They came to tell us about their worries, the most direct and immediate being the disastrous impact that a no-deal Brexit would have on their sector. They were also clear that avoiding a no-deal Brexit was not enough, and they left us in no doubt about the importance to the long-term health of their company...

Nissan in Sunderland (4 Feb 2019)

Richard Burden: When it could soon cost less, in terms of tariffs, to import a car to the EU from Japan than it will to export a new car from the UK to the EU in the event of a hard Brexit, is it not easy to see just what impact Brexit uncertainties have on decisions like this? Could not the Government minimise those uncertainties—first, by jettisoning the customs union as a red line for the Government...

Honda in Swindon (19 Feb 2019)

Richard Burden: Brexit may not have been the direct cause of Honda’s announcement, but, to echo the wise words of the right hon. and learned Member for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke), does the Business Secretary agree with me that it is an absolutely key part of the context in which Honda and other major car manufacturers are making decisions on where to invest in the generations of vehicles that will transform...

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.

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?

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...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [9th Allotted Day] (15 Jan 2019)

Richard Burden: ...of great uncertainty for employees, and there will be a big role for the development partnership in standing by them. I do not claim that the job losses at Jaguar Land Rover are to do only with Brexit. The downturn in the Chinese market is an important part of the picture, as has been the depression in sales of cleaner diesel engines. Shortage of time means that I cannot go into that...

European Council (25 Mar 2019)

Richard Burden: ...ago by my right hon. Friend the Member for Normanton, Pontefract and Castleford (Yvette Cooper). She was not asked whether she approved of Britain being part of a customs union with the EU after Brexit. What she was asked was whether, if this House agreed through indicative votes to go for that option, she would abide by that decision and seek to negotiate that with the European Union....

European Union (Withdrawal) Act (25 Mar 2019)

Richard Burden: ...nor other hon. Members will be intimidated, but we have to face up to what is happening. This kind of toxic atmosphere in politics is not unique to the UK—it is happening in other countries—but Brexit gives it a focus, and it can lead to violence against people regarded as believing the wrong things or simply because of who they are. My plea is that all of us who have the privilege 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...

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...

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...

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?

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.

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?
