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

Dominic Raab: ...half the country, which would immediately and directly conflict with those rules. On the one hand he personally is widely regarded, although he does not say so explicitly, as being a proponent of Brexit—he wants to leave the EU, along with many on his side and on his Benches, and of course it is a requirement of the 2017 Labour manifesto—but on the other hand he is willing to trade...

Leaving the EU (12 Feb 2019)

Dominic Raab: ...the Prime Minister’s statement. Does she agree that requiring legally binding changes to the backstop is not only reasonable but essential if we are to pass the deal through this House? While Brexit was the UK’s choice, if Brussels remains stubbornly intransigent, a departure on World Trade Organisation terms would be the EU’s choice.

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (29 Jan 2019)

Dominic Raab: ...to the very charge that she herself levelled at the Government and the Prime Minister. Just moments ago—I listened to her speech carefully and with respect—she talked about avoiding a blindfold Brexit, but I am afraid her approach is precisely a blindfold approach. It is not clear whether the right hon. Lady backs the Norway option or a second referendum, but I worry most that, as she...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (29 Jan 2019)

Dominic Raab: ...made by my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Beaconsfield (Mr Grieve) in The Sunday Times for why that is wrong and we should have a second referendum. With just two months to go until Brexit, the amendment is a climbing frame for everyone with a different view. I fear most, however, that this would encourage the EU to delay at the 11th hour of the negotiations in the hope...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [9th Allotted Day] (15 Jan 2019)

Dominic Raab: ...case for compromise, but compromise cannot come at any price, and the deal before us involves the most severe and enduring risks to our economy and our democracy while stifling the opportunities of Brexit that fired up over 17 million people with the optimism and the hope to vote in June 2016. My reasons for my decision are straightforward. First, the Northern Ireland backstop and the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [9th Allotted Day] (15 Jan 2019)

Dominic Raab: ...exiting the backstop. The EU will inevitably press us right up until the next election, if not well beyond, and it would wield all the negotiating leverage. So I say to all hon. Members weary with Brexit that I share your desire to move on from Brexit, but be under no illusions: the deal before us cannot end this grinding process—it can only prolong it. This deal is so demeaning to our...

Exiting the European Union: No Deal: UK Border Delays (25 Oct 2018)

Dominic Raab: ...his approach is rather delusional. We have made good progress and we are close to agreeing a deal. The responsible thing for Members from all parts of the House to do, regardless of their views on Brexit, is to get behind the Government so we can clinch that good deal for all quarters and all parts of the UK.

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.

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: Topical Questions (25 Oct 2018)

Dominic Raab: Any pay-offs to MEPs are obviously a matter for the EU rather than the UK. In relation to young people, we need to be very clear on the benefits of Brexit, both in relation to trade and to the global horizons that will be the USP of this country. In relation to the mobility provisions that allow them to keep studying, travelling and taking advantage of the rich cultural and educational...

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

Dominic Raab: My hon. Friend is always a very constructive commentator on these issues, and I welcomed my time serving with him on the Brexit Committee. He makes a very important point. We want to see a sensible approach to the bridge between intellectual property and the future relationship; the de-politicisation, frankly, of this issue; and making sure, which is in both sides’ interests, that we...

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...

Leaving the Eu: Meaningful Vote (22 Oct 2018)

Dominic Raab: MPs will have their say in the meaningful vote. They have scrutinised at length every stage of the Brexit process. Of course, it is not for the Government or any Minister to set out which amendments are allowed; that will be for Mr Speaker to decide. We have made it clear that we not only accept but welcome the fact that we will have a substantive motion, and of course that means it should be...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Exiting the European Union: EU Exit (15 Oct 2018)

Dominic Raab: ..., businesses and stakeholders about steps they may need to take in the event of a ‘no deal’ scenario. Notices were published on the following areas: Accounting and audit if there's no Brexit deal Breeding animals if there's no Brexit deal Classifying, labelling and packaging chemicals if there's no Brexit deal Commercial fishing if there's no Brexit deal Consumer rights if there's no...

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

Dominic Raab: ...need to take if we do not reach a deal with the EU. They cover a wide range of sectors, building on other work that has taken place across Government over the past two years to prepare the UK for Brexit irrespective of the outcome of negotiations. They acknowledge that there are risks to a no deal scenario, but they also demonstrate the steps we will take to avoid, mitigate and manage any...

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

Dominic Raab: I thank the shadow Brexit Secretary—for his opening remarks at least. He asked a number of questions. First, let me say that the Prime Minister would not normally update the House on an informal summit; that was not the practice under the previous Labour Governments, as he probably well knows. He asked me about the October Council. We have always been clear that we would aim for the October...

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

Dominic Raab: ..., the right hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn)—I am glad that he is present to answer for this—has opened the door to a second referendum. That is a thinly veiled ruse to reverse Brexit altogether. It is now clear to every voter that the Labour leadership team have trashed their promise at the general election to deliver on Brexit; they have allowed political opportunism...

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

Dominic Raab: I thank my right hon. Friend for his questions. The search for a Labour party policy on the EU and on Brexit continues, but on the reports that he mentioned—there have been various reports on the technical solution to Northern Ireland—they have provided very important, useful additional insights. The reality is that we have committed, on top of the technical solutions, to agree a legally...

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

Dominic Raab: First, there is no question of some kind of blindfolded Brexit. We will be agreeing the withdrawal agreement and the Northern Ireland protocol, and we want to make sure that we have enough detail and enough of the substance in the political declaration on the future relationship, so that this House and the country at large understand the model of economic and security co-operation that we...

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

Dominic Raab: All I will say to the hon. Gentleman is that we are ambitious for our post-Brexit relationship with the EU. The economic news from the Bank of England on GDP accelerating in growth terms and rising real wages is important. This is the moment to go into these negotiations with some economic self-confidence and political ambition. If we do that, this country’s best days lie ahead.
