Public Bill Committee: Agriculture Bill: Secretary of State’s powers to give financial assistance (30 Oct 2018)

Jenny Chapman: ...have this approach. The environmental principles set out in article 191 of the treaty form an essential component of environmental law. If the Government’s stated aim of equivalence on day one of Brexit is to be achieved, these principles need to be part of domestic law on day one and the public should be able to rely on them. The courts should be able to apply them and public bodies...

Public Bill Committee: Agriculture Bill: Secretary of State’s powers to give financial assistance (30 Oct 2018)

Jenny Chapman: ...within which to proceed. I am not a Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs farming agricultural specialist, as the Committee will know. I am here because I have been involved with our Brexit team. I have been asked not to bang on too much about retained EU law and that side of things in my contribution. I am also mindful of the fact that if we maintain the pace that we have...

Yemen: Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement (10 Sep 2018)

Jenny Chapman: ...have a close economic partnership with the EU without any obligations and whom the Prime Minister does not have the political authority to stand up to. We are now at the most crucial stage of the Brexit process, yet the Government have no credible plan for our future relationship with the EU and no viable solution to the Irish border issue, and there is no majority in the Commons for the...

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Jenny Chapman: Even by recent standards, this is a moment of extraordinary political chaos. Within the last 36 hours, the Prime Minister has lost her Brexit Secretary, her Foreign Secretary—although she probably welcomed that as much as the rest of the country did—and she has lost the support of her party. The Chequers proposals are clearly dead in the water, even before the White Paper is published and...

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Jenny Chapman: We have had our moments, I do not deny it, but we sit here as a shadow Brexit team that is still entirely intact from the date of formation. I look over to the Under-Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, the hon. Member for Worcester (Mr Walker), who now casts a lonely figure on the Government Front Bench, as the sole survivor on his own team. The Lib Dems have been calling for...

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Jenny Chapman: Our Front Benchers’ position is clear: we do not want an exit from Brexit. We respect the outcome of the referendum. I know that the Liberal Democrats do not approve of that position, but that is what it is.

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Jenny Chapman: ...the White Paper—if it gets published—may include more detail, but this is clearly not the credible plan that we need to protect jobs, the economy and rights. This matters, because we all want a Brexit deal that works for Britain and ends the uncertainty that we have seen for two years. Businesses in the north-east and across the country are crying out for that. Whether people voted...

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Jenny Chapman: No. Or would this just be a Brexit Government? Brexit is the most pressing issue facing this country, but it is not the only one, and the public would not thank us for ignoring the many wider issues we need to urgently tackle. I will give way to the right hon. Gentleman if he would still like to intervene.

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Jenny Chapman: ...that her approach has failed. She needs to change the red lines, particularly on a customs union and a close single market deal, or better still, make way for a Government who can deliver the Brexit deal that we need. The sooner she does that and ends the chaos of the last day and a half, the better. The second proposal in the motion concerns “a people’s vote” on the withdrawal deal....

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Jenny Chapman: ...view. Unfortunately, that is not what I expect to happen. Labour is not calling for a second referendum because we believe that doing so at this stage would make it harder to get the right deal for Brexit.

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Jenny Chapman: ...to be rubbed out and faded to pale pink. We are not calling for a second referendum; I really cannot be any clearer about it. Another reason for that is that we want to focus on the terms of the Brexit deal. Labour has engaged fully with the negotiations and the Brexit process. We have set out what a post-Brexit approach could be, and we have sought to shape it. Calling for a second...

Point of Order: [Day 1] (14 Mar 2018)

Jenny Chapman: ...my speech, may I send our best wishes to the Minister, the hon. Member for Worcester (Mr Walker), who is about to embark upon the most challenging and rewarding experience of his life? It is not Brexit; he is due to have a baby—on Friday, I believe—and the thoughts of us all are with him. This has been an interesting afternoon of speeches—not so much a debate as a collection of...

Ministry of Defence: Department for Exiting the European Union (26 Feb 2018)

Jenny Chapman: ...struggles to find and keep hold of good staff? What is it about the Department that is so off-putting to talented civil servants? Perhaps it is because there is a Whitehall turf war over Brexit, leaving the Department effectively neutered and paralysed by the division in Government. With such excess resources available, how is it that the Department made such a pathetic job of pretending...

Exiting the European Union: Negotiation Outcomes (1 Feb 2018)

Jenny Chapman: The Buzzfeed papers tell us that the regions most damaged by a no-deal Brexit would be the west midlands, Northern Ireland, and the north-east. The people of these regions deserve better. Will the Minister take the opportunity to make it clear to certain colleagues sitting behind him that they are wrong and irresponsible to be talking up or wishing for a no-deal outcome?

Exiting the European Union: Negotiation Outcomes (1 Feb 2018)

Jenny Chapman: The Minister will not say it, but I will: they are wrong and they are irresponsible to be doing so. As well as certain regions being hit hardest, certain sectors are threatened severely by a no-deal Brexit. For example, the food and drink industry exported £9.8 billion-worth of goods to the EU last year. Once and for all, will the Minister rule out a no-deal outcome, commit to a transition...

Leaving the European Union — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (22 Jan 2018)

Jenny Chapman: ...something that I never thought I would see, which is that everybody who has spoken has been in agreement on the undesirability of accepting the instruction contained in it. I have been in so many Brexit debates during the past year and a half and that has never happened before, so we should at least acknowledge it. We have managed to find many things to disagree about, none the less. It...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Welsh Ministers — Power to make consequential and transitional provision (6 Dec 2017)

Jenny Chapman: ...of EU policies and programmes and proposals under consideration in the EU framework.” As Britain leaves the EU, it falls to this generation of political leaders to face up to the challenges that Brexit poses to the Good Friday agreement and make good on the efforts of those who worked so hard to reach agreement in 1998. We must cherish and respect what was achieved almost 20 years ago....

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Welsh Ministers — Power to make consequential and transitional provision (6 Dec 2017)

Jenny Chapman: ...to never return to the suffering of the past. As a non-partisan coalition of businesses put it, we must ensure that “society in Northern Ireland does not become collateral damage in any Brexit discussions.” The Northern Ireland Committee of the Irish Congress of Trade Unions, the Confederation of British Industry in Northern Ireland, the Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Jenny Chapman: ...intend to hold on to them permanently. Rather, it seems that they feel that tackling the undoubted complexities of considering how to make new arrangements with the devolved Administrations post Brexit belongs in the “too difficult” pile—something to be put off until there is more time and there are fewer distractions. However, there are no time limits on when the Government will...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Jenny Chapman: ...to write that into the Bill. The right hon. and learned Gentleman will probably remember our attempt to put the JMC on a statutory footing when we considered the article 50 Bill, but this time the Brexit negotiations are upon us. The Government have lost their majority since our last attempt, so I encourage Ministers to take a more conciliatory approach this time. New clauses 64 and 65...
