Baroness Quin: To ask Her Majesty's Government how much it cost to place the advert in Le Monde on 23 October entitled Brexit—31st October.

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill - Second Reading (30 Oct 2019)

Baroness Quin: ...if I were still a Member of the Commons then I would have voted against Third Reading, as a number of Labour colleagues did yesterday. I do not believe that an election is the best way to decide Brexit. There is a strong risk that we may well be back here after the election with further protracted proceedings as to the way forward. In that sense, I am very sorry that the Liberal Democrats...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (16 Oct 2019)

Baroness Quin: ...programme that does not seem to be implementable and a Government, moreover, which have been at odds with Parliament over the illegal Prorogation as well as over one of the central aspects of their Brexit policy. Indeed, the speech read a bit like an election pitch, and I almost wondered whether the whole occasion should perhaps be charged to the Conservatives’ election campaign. We have...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (8 Oct 2019)

Baroness Quin: To ask Her Majesty's Government when they last met the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders to discuss the effects of a no-deal Brexit; and what was the outcome of those discussions.

No-deal Update - Statement (3 Sep 2019)

Baroness Quin: ...of what the odds are, faced with current circumstances? Following what has been said about Wales, is Operation Yellowhammer also looking at the regional implications within Britain of a no-deal Brexit? With regard to the point made about publication, it would be very welcome if information about this were to be published.

Written Answers — Department for International Trade: Trade Agreements (21 May 2019)

Baroness Quin: To ask Her Majesty's Government with which countries, in order of priority, they wish to conclude trade deals post-Brexit; and what estimate they have made, if any, of the likely timescale of concluding such deals.

Further Developments in Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (11 Mar 2019)

Baroness Quin: ...laid to permanent rest. Surely the EU is not about making regional inequalities, which are already great in our own country, even greater. The figures for the north-east alone would make me oppose Brexit and I hope the Minister, as a fellow north-easterner, agrees with me.

Further Developments in Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (11 Mar 2019)

Baroness Quin: ...are being so little heeded at present, and dismissed as being part of some project fear. Yet it is businesses throughout the land that are alarmed at the practical negative economic consequences of Brexit and of making life difficult, in a highly competitive world, with our biggest and nearest market. This simply does not make sense. The concerns and fears of our universities over research...

Stronger Towns Fund - Statement (5 Mar 2019)

Baroness Quin: ...to £5 per person in the north-east for each of the seven years. Is it not the case that this in no way mitigates the cuts in local government spending across the region, nor the effects of Brexit, particularly under a disastrous no-deal scenario? Does this £5 per head of population not contrast dramatically with the £245 per head of population in Northern Ireland as a result of the...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Civil Proceedings: Judgements (14 Feb 2019)

Baroness Quin: To ask Her Majesty's Government what discussions they have had with (1) the Bar Council, (2) the Law Society, and (3) other interested organisations about the impact of Brexit on the cross-border enforcement of civil judgments.

Finance (No. 3) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (7 Feb 2019)

Baroness Quin: My Lords, I am pleased to take part in the debate, although it must be said that the wider context, described so well by my noble friend Lord Tunnicliffe, is dramatic and alarming. Brexit hangs like a pall over everything, not least over this Budget and the previous two. To fund Brexit, £3 billion was announced in the 2017 Budget and £1.5 billion in the previous Budget. The Chancellor...

Nissan in Sunderland - Statement (5 Feb 2019)

Baroness Quin: My Lords, I echo the concerns raised by the right reverend Prelate, but in its statement Nissan specifically mentioned the uncertainty created by Brexit. Another factor too is the recent conclusion of the EU-Japan trade agreement, which will make exporting from Japan to the EU and vice versa cheaper and simpler. Yet that is an agreement that we risk being excluded from after 29 March. Can...

Brexit: Security - Question (29 Jan 2019)

Baroness Quin: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what discussions ministers from the Home Office and the Ministry for Justice have had with the heads of police forces about security issues relating to Brexit.

Brexit: Security - Question (29 Jan 2019)

Baroness Quin: My Lords, while the economic consequences of a no-deal Brexit are dominating the headlines, is it not the case that the consequences of no deal on vital security co-operation with the European Union are equally alarming? Did the Minister see the item in the Belfast Telegraph yesterday about the retiring chief constable there who felt that he was in the dark over Brexit? Surely, he and other...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (9 Jan 2019)

Baroness Quin: ...MPs who had the courage to vote in the way that they did—particularly the Conservative rebels—have been pilloried in the press. One headline today claimed: “They really do want to steal your Brexit”. In fact, the vote was not against Brexit as such but against a no-deal Brexit, and that ought to be made absolutely clear. As our public representatives, Members of Parliament have the...

Brexit: Economic Analysis of Various Scenarios - Statement (28 Nov 2018)

Baroness Quin: My Lords, is it not clear from what the Minister has said that what is in front of us is not delivering exactly the same benefits, which is what we were promised by the former Brexit Secretary in the other place? What discussions have the Government had with the City of London about the exclusion of services? The figures seem to show that the economy of London—which, it was previously...

Brexit: Economic Effects - Question (21 Nov 2018)

Baroness Quin: ...what recent discussions they have had with the Chambers of Commerce and Confederation of British Industry representatives in the United Kingdom’s regions and nations about the economic effects of Brexit.
