Results 1–20 of 33 for brexit speaker:Albert Owen

The Economy (24 Oct 2019)

Albert Owen: .... I will miss some things, but not jumping up and down for hours to get the opportunity to speak—I have to say that I have not enjoyed that at all. Let me begin with the withdrawal agreement and Brexit itself, because it will have a huge impact on my constituency and the port of Holyhead, which is the fastest growing port in the whole United Kingdom in terms of trade with Europe. It is...

Uk Shared Prosperity Fund (5 Sep 2019)

Albert Owen: ...need to plan. They need some indication of what is happening. We have just talked about science and technology. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that research and development also require planning? Brexit has taken the Government’s eye off the ball, but we need some answers now.

Red Squirrels: Potential Extinction — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (3 Jul 2019)

Albert Owen: public land owners and the community working together to preserve and increase the number of red squirrels. Will she join me in pressing the Minister to use the shared prosperity fund post Brexit in the same positive way when it comes to wildlife and the preservation of species such as the red squirrel?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Infrastructure Resilience (26 Jun 2019)

Albert Owen: ...Holyhead port is a gateway from the Republic of Ireland. What discussions has the Minister’s Department had with the Irish Government to ensure that there are adequate facilities in place before Brexit, because the Irish Government are planning to detour freight direct to mainland Europe?

Ford in Bridgend (10 Jun 2019)

Albert Owen: ...praising the Welsh Government and the trade unions for the tone they set over the weekend. My thoughts are with the families. The Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee has looked into Brexit and the effect it will have on the manufacturing sector. The automotive sector was very clear that the current deal suits it and that no deal would be an absolute disaster. The Secretary...

ST David’S Day (28 Feb 2019)

Albert Owen: .... It united the country of Wales in a way we have not seen for a long time. The tactics were perfect; I wish the Prime Minister would act more like Warren Gatling than Eddie Jones when it comes to Brexit and mind games, and actually deliver.

ST David’S Day (28 Feb 2019)

Albert Owen: speak for themselves, but I have had compliments from both of them on the way Wales played on Saturday; it absolutely united them. I want to talk about energy, the north Wales economy and indeed Brexit, but I want to start by paying tribute to my late good friend Paul Flynn. As chairman of the Welsh parliamentary Labour party, I officially send our condolences to Sam and her family, and...

Leaving the EU: European Union (Withdrawal) Act (14 Jan 2019)

Albert Owen: ...—including, I think, the Secretary of State—voted against the Government of Wales Act 1998 after the 1997 referendum decided the matter. That should be on the record when he lectures us about Brexit.

Leaving the EU (14 Jan 2019)

Albert Owen: ..., because we want a level playing field in the United Kingdom. Moreover, 88% of constituents who have contacted me reject her deal. Many young people—75%—think that they will be worse off with Brexit. Now that she has been exposed to having form in voting against the will of the Welsh people in the election and standing on a manifesto to overturn it, can she, at this 11th hour, give...

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

Albert Owen: ..., but 100% of the electorate, which includes those who did not vote and those who could not vote because of their age. I am here to represent all those people. In 2017, the Prime Minister called a Brexit election. She proposed a clean Brexit—everyone will remember her saying that Brexit means Brexit—and she lost her parliamentary majority and that mandate. As other Members have said,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Transport Infrastructure: North Wales (18 Jul 2018)

Albert Owen: ...Nelson Mandela, who would have been 100 today. The north Wales economy depends on the port of Holyhead as the main port from the Republic of Ireland. Many businesses are concerned about a no deal Brexit scenario. Will the Minister tell us whether there is a contingency plan for a no deal and if not, why not?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Tourism (13 Jun 2018)

Albert Owen: ..., and as the Minister will know, the jewel in its crown is Anglesey, Sir Môn. Many businesses have been helped to establish themselves by the European social fund; how will that gap be filled post Brexit? Those businesses need the UK Government’s help.

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Albert Owen: To me, this debate means more than just customs and borders; it means jobs and investment in my constituency. I live on the frontline of Brexit—my constituency is on the frontline. I am closer to the great city of Dublin than the hon. Member for Arfon (Hywel Williams), and over the years, European Union and Irish politics has meant a lot to people in north-west Wales, because we are linked...

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Albert Owen: ...that continuing in a customs union will give my constituents the job security that they need. To return to the will of the people, the Prime Minister called the 2017 general election—the hard Brexit general election—so that she could boost her majority in the House of Commons. She failed to do that—in fact, she lost her majority—and she now relies on a party that represents a part...

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Albert Owen: My right hon. Friend mentioned trade through ports. She is aware that my constituency is on the frontline of Brexit, and is the busiest port with the Republic of Ireland—400,000 lorries a year pass through it. This is not scaremongering: already, Irish companies are making contingency plans to trade directly with mainland Europe, bypassing Britain altogether, on a business case.

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

Albert Owen: ...there is a Welsh dimension to that, because the Prime Minister went for a walk in the hills of north Wales and thought that it was a very good idea to have a general election. We called it the hard Brexit general election, because she was seeking a mandate and an increased majority in the House, but the people of Wales and the people of the United Kingdom took away her majority.

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

Albert Owen: ...occasions that she was not going to hold a general election, but she did. She said that she wanted to put her trust in the people of the United Kingdom, and they voted overwhelmingly against a hard Brexit. Before moving on to Brexit, particularly the links with the Republic of Ireland, I am sure that the House will join me in congratulating the island of Ireland on winning the grand slam...

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

Albert Owen: city to my constituency, and we have had trade for many decades—hundreds of years—between the Republic of Ireland and Wales. Much of that will be put in jeopardy if we do not get the Brexit deal right. We need a special arrangement, and I am appealing to the Secretary of State because he has been to my constituency to see the port of Holyhead and the problems that could occur....

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

Albert Owen: The hon. Gentleman is right: his own party’s Government have now put aside an extra £39 billion for the Brexit divorce bill. Did he advertise that fact when he was campaigning for us to leave the European Union?

Leaving the Eu: Economic Analysis (30 Jan 2018)

Albert Owen: ...of the right hon. Member for Preseli Pembrokeshire (Stephen Crabb), who is no longer in his place, my constituency is the gateway to Britain from the Republic of Ireland and on the frontline of Brexit. Businesses that I have spoken to in the past few weeks and months want, because of the uncertainty, an analysis of what Brexit will mean for them specifically. Will the Minister tell the...
