Northern Ireland: Political Developments - Statement (10 Jan 2017)

Lord Hain: ...situation where 10 years of devolved government since the historic settlement we negotiated in 2007, and 10 years of Good Friday negotiations prior to that, could be destroyed. As he has mentioned Brexit, will the Minister tell us how, if the Supreme Court rules that the devolved legislatures should, as they all requested, be consulted on Article 50, that can be complied with if there is...

Wales Bill - Report (2nd Day) (10 Jan 2017)

Lord Hain: ...a situation where differential rights will be available to workers in different parts of the United Kingdom. This, by the way, is of considerable importance to all of us in the context of the Brexit negotiations. None of these scenarios would be welcome to me, to the Welsh Government or to the Wales TUC. Instead, the amendment permits the National Assembly for Wales and the Welsh...

Autumn Statement: Economy - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2016)

Lord Hain: ...The key concern today is that economic growth is getting slower and slower. That is what has caused the Government’s fiscal targets to be missed year after year, both before and after Britain’s Brexit vote. That is what has kept real incomes per head below their pre-banking crisis peak and inflicted so much needless suffering on so many for so long. It is why so many industrial jobs...

Wales Bill - Committee (4th Day) (23 Nov 2016)

Lord Hain: ...UK Ministers. Holtham suggested reviews every 12 to 15 years. Frankly that is far, far too long a period in my view, especially with the outlook for the British economy looking so uncertain with Brexit, as the Chancellor confirmed in his Statement today. Holtham made no recommendation for any kind of Treasury assurance to ensure that Wales did not lose out. The Holtham report simply...

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union - Statement (10 Oct 2016)

Lord Hain: My Lords, why does the Minister say that Parliament should remain in control after Brexit, quite rightly, but not before Brexit? This is not a question of seeking to overturn the referendum result nor of parading your negotiating credentials in public beforehand. It is about asserting Parliament’s fundamental right, including this House’s right, to approve the terms of Brexit because...

Wales Bill - Second Reading (10 Oct 2016)

Lord Hain: ..., while I certainly do not wish to put any ideas into the Conservatives’ minds, what about VAT if we leave the European Union? Membership of the EU means that it cannot be devolved: what does Brexit mean? Let me turn to the manner in which the Bill will enable one important part of devolved public services in Wales to be dictated from Whitehall, namely industrial relations. I ask the...

Finance Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (13 Sep 2016)

Lord Hain: ...result of the European Union referendum. They say that Britain’s new Prime Minister is not only First Lord of the Treasury, she is also a lady in waiting—waiting for the smoke to clear from the Brexit battlefield. Only then, they argue, will the Government be able to judge just how much damage the referendum result has done to Britain’s economic prospects and how Ministers should...

Exiting the European Union - Statement (5 Sep 2016)

Lord Hain: ...not have a clue what the Government’s agenda is; for example, the Japanese Government wrote an unprecedented letter to the UK and the Prime Minister contradicts the claims and objectives of the Brexit leaders, who themselves are reneging on them. The Minister promised to update, inform and engage Parliament, and that is welcome, but surely we need a promise of an amendable Motion,...

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

Lord Hain: My Lords, I wish to explore the question raised in this House by the noble Lord, Lord Butler of Brockwell, on the case for a referendum on the precise terms of Brexit. The referendum on 23 June was unusual, even unique, for 1 million reasons. It was clear what leave supporters were voting against, but nobody knew what sort of alternative future they were voting for. None of their leaders...

European Union Referendum (Date of Referendum etc.) Regulations 2016 — Motion to Approve (2 Mar 2016)

Lord Hain:—about £7.5 billion rather than £10 billion a year now, on the Norway model. In the case of Wales, because it receives more EU funding than any other part of the UK it would be worst hit by Brexit. Wales would end up paying the EU £320 million per year where we currently receive a net gain of £838 million per year. So each person in Wales could end up contributing more to the EU...
