Results 81–88 of 88 for brexit speaker:Angus MacNeil

Backbench Business: UK Fishing Industry (1 Dec 2016)

Angus MacNeil: ...—there are 773,000 sq km under UK control, but of that 462,000 sq km are Scottish and 311,000 sq km belong to the rest of the UK. That means that when we get the powers back from Brussels, as the Brexiteers have promised us, we must ensure that there is no grab in London and that the mismanagement of Scottish waters is not simply transferred from Brussels to London.

Exiting the EU and Transport (23 Nov 2016)

Angus MacNeil: Perhaps there is an opportunity for the Secretary of State to come to the Dispatch Box and tell us whether we will be in the open skies agreement post-Brexit.

Exiting the EU and Transport (23 Nov 2016)

Angus MacNeil: ...UK would need to carry out up to 240 million checks a year, but the new system has the capacity to handle about 100 million checks. If this situation emerges, it will cause a huge difficulty post-Brexit and inevitably damage trade, because the infrastructure is not there to do customs checks at ports.

Exiting the EU and Transport (23 Nov 2016)

Angus MacNeil: The hon. Gentleman and others have talked about getting the best out of Brexit as it arrives. Given the seven options for that process, does he imagine that any will be as good as the situation that we have at the moment? People are looking for the best decision, but the question is whether it will be as good as what we have.

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Angus MacNeil: ...agricultural sector and the fisheries sector. I happen to be a crofter, and many crofters will be wondering whether there will still be financial support for hill sheep farmers and the rest post-Brexit. Indeed, fishermen will be asking the same about the assistance for purchasing and upgrading fishing boats. On those two things, can we be sure that the money coming from Europe will be...

Royal Yacht Britannia: International Trade — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (11 Oct 2016)

Angus MacNeil: ...Britain great again. Another hon. Member said that Britain would stand tall in the world, indicating that Britain does not stand tall in the world at the moment. Indeed, it does not, because of Brexit. It is a laughing stock from Reykjavik to Buenos Aires—that is the reality, and building a royal yacht would only add to that. I am sorry to say that to hon. Members, and I wish them well...

EU Referendum: Gibraltar — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (20 Jul 2016)

Angus MacNeil: ...would indeed be proud of him. I thank the hon. Member for Filton and Bradley Stoke (Jack Lopresti) for securing the debate, which is important, timely and perhaps one we should have had before the Brexit referendum. However, we are having it now and, as with many other things, we are having to think about the implications of Brexit after the referendum. I should say that, like the hon....

Department of Energy and Climate Change: Energy Spending Priorities: Investors and Consumers (4 Jul 2016)

Angus MacNeil: ...jobs. That presupposed that prior to the vote to leave the EU, the policy landscape was somehow calm, tranquil and settled. It is certainly not calm, tranquil or settled now, and we know that the Brexiteers deliberately had no plan in order to avoid scrutiny. That is another debate, which is taking place on television in Scotland tonight, and I will leave that where it is. In relation to...
