Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Oct 2019)

Dominic Raab: I can give my right hon. Friend that reassurance. I do understand, and we have always managed to stay on civil, cordial, even amiable terms throughout all the challenges of Brexit, which we on both sides of the House should seek to do. Parliament of course has a crucial role to play. I do not think anyone can legitimately say that Parliament, with the stalwart support of the Speaker, has not...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (25 Oct 2018)

Dominic Raab: I thank the shadow Brexit Secretary. What he has set out, of course, is the concerted plans and preparations that we are rightly undertaking to make sure that, regardless of the outcome of the negotiations—and we want a good deal—we will be ready to deal with the short-term risk, which there will undoubtedly be, and make a success of Brexit.

Exiting the European Union: Leaving the EU (25 Oct 2018)

Dominic Raab: ...; a second referendum would create far more uncertainty than it would resolve, and would erode public trust in our democracy. We will heal the divisions created by the campaign and the politics of Brexit by delivering on the outcome of the referendum, and by making sure that we deliver jobs for working families and build homes for the next generation beyond the Brexit negotiations.

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

Dominic Raab: follow the hon. Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse), even though I take a fundamentally different view. Last November, I resigned from the Cabinet because I could not support the Government’s Brexit deal, and I tell the House that I still believe it to be a bad deal. With the Government purporting to take no deal off the table and their acquiescence in the extension of article 50, I...

Government Overseas Aid Commitment: Private Investment: EU Exit Negotiations (9 Oct 2018)

Dominic Raab: giving effect to the referendum. The hon. Lady mentioned Rolls-Royce, which has just announced extra investment in its Goodwood plant in Sussex. Many businesses are saying that, regardless of Brexit, this country is an excellent place to come to and invest in, because of the skills and entrepreneurial creativity of our workforce and our people. I hope that she can have a little more...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Oct 2019)

Dominic Raab: My hon. Friend is absolutely right that we need to get Brexit done. The country wants us to move on and to keep faith with the voters. As for the position of the Liberal Democrats, of all the different views in the House of Commons, I find this the most difficult to understand. How could we have 16 Liberal Democrat MEPs actually writing to Jean-Claude Juncker telling him not to negotiate or...

The Government's Plan for Brexit (7 Dec 2016)

Dominic Raab: debate this important—indeed, defining—issue for our country. This is the 14th time Ministers, including the Prime Minister, have come to the House to debate or answer questions on Brexit, and there have also been four Westminster Hall debates. The Exiting the European Union Committee is up and running; indeed we took evidence this morning from the CBI and the TUC. That is the vital...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Oct 2019)

Dominic Raab: ...Windrush generation. We have apologised for the mistakes that were made and, to date, over 7,200 individuals have been given documentation confirming their status. The hon. Gentleman talks about Brexit, which has been a divisive issue for all parties and people right across this country. The best way of resolving that and bringing the country together is to get a deal, get Brexit done,...

Eu: Future Relationship White Paper (12 Jul 2018)

Dominic Raab: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. I remember how insightful he was when we served on the Brexit Committee together. It is true that this needs to avoid being a Westminster bubble conversation, and I have already had meetings with business groups from the CBI to the Federation of Small Businesses to ensure that the views of the diversity of the business community are fed through and that I...

Leaving the Eu: Meaningful Vote (22 Oct 2018)

Dominic Raab: I thank the shadow Brexit Secretary for his comments, and I agree with him about the need for a serious, substantive debate and for the right tone for this debate. He is right that the meaningful vote needs to be a decisive decision. We set that out in the memorandum and that is what section 13 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 provides. As the memorandum that we have published...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Interpretation of retained EU law during transitional period (14 Nov 2017)

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval for agreements with the Union (7 Feb 2017)

Dominic Raab: ...out that any domestic implementing legislation as a result of any deals reached at international level will, of course, require parliamentary approval in the usual way. The legal effects of Brexit at home will be dealt with through enactment of legislation in advance of the ratification of the international treaties. On the international element, it is useful to distinguish between two key...

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the EU (14 Feb 2019)

Dominic Raab: ...the House on 29 January to deliver a legally binding change to the backstop, and to press the Malthouse compromise as an alternative in Brussels. I want the Prime Minister to be able to deliver Brexit, and I want the Government to be able to deliver and make a success of Brexit. I also want it to be crystal clear that the only way we will leave on WTO terms is by the choice of the EU...

The Government's Plan for Brexit (7 Dec 2016)

Dominic Raab: .... It is my view that, given the positions already announced, we will almost inevitably be coming out of the customs union and the single market. Incidentally, that is also the evidence given to the Brexit Committee by everyone we have heard from so far. I understand why the Government do not want to drip feed their negotiating strategy into the public domain but want to let us know when...
