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.

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

Dominic Raab: ...accept the premise and the assumption underlying his question, which is that we should not allow ourselves to remain in the customs union, because we would then avoid all the opportunities of Brexit that we need to grasp.

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

Dominic Raab: ...deal with the EU, and all our efforts are focused on achieving that. I do not accept the premise of her suggestion of a second referendum. I think it would inevitably be aimed at trying to reverse Brexit, and that would create democratic outrage and a huge amount of mistrust in the establishment and the political system.

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

Dominic Raab: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his question. It is important to ensure that Brexit works for all parts of the United Kingdom. We continue to engage with all the devolved Administrations on all the devolved issues, including in Scotland, as I set out in my statement, in relation to Scottish and Welsh Ministers and officials from the Northern Ireland secretariat. We want to make sure that we...

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

Dominic Raab: ...be 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...

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

Dominic Raab: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. The Labour party has no clear or coherent position on any aspect of the substance. The Labour leader’s calling for a reversal of Brexit through a referendum is a betrayal of everyone who voted Labour at the last election.

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Exiting the European Union: EU Exit (13 Sep 2018)

Dominic Raab: ...stakeholders about steps they may need to take in the event of a ‘no deal’ scenario. Notices are being published on the following areas: Accessing public sector contracts if there’s no Brexit deal. Appointing nominated persons to your business if there’s no Brexit deal. Broadcasting and video on demand if there’s no Brexit deal. Connecting Europe Facility energy funding if...

Brexit Negotiations and No Deal Contingency Planning (4 Sep 2018)

Dominic Raab: With permission, Mr Speaker, I would like to provide the House with an update on the progress of Brexit negotiations and the Government’s no deal contingency planning. On Friday, I was in Brussels for the fourth time since I became Secretary of State for a further round of talks with Michel Barnier. We had an extended discussion covering outstanding withdrawal issues, internal and external...

Brexit Negotiations and No Deal Contingency Planning (4 Sep 2018)

Dominic Raab: ...interview on LBC that he would accept any deal, however bad its terms, and the shadow Chancellor explaining that he would not set aside any money to deal with the worst-case scenario of a no deal Brexit. Yet again, I am afraid that the Labour party has shown that it would roll over in Brussels and fail to stand up for this country.

Brexit Negotiations and No Deal Contingency Planning (4 Sep 2018)

Dominic Raab: I think that economic forecasts ought to be treated with a measure of caution, given their track record. I note that the hon. Gentleman always reduces any matter relating to Brexit to the Scottish National party’s blinkered, narrow political obsession with a referendum on independence, but I think that every part of the United Kingdom wants to see us strive to get the best possible deal,...

Brexit Negotiations and No Deal Contingency Planning (4 Sep 2018)

Dominic Raab: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. One of the great advantages of Brexit— notwithstanding the doom and gloom on the other side—is that we will be an independent coastal state, with all the rights under international law that that brings.

Brexit Negotiations and No Deal Contingency Planning (4 Sep 2018)

Dominic Raab: ...the worst-case scenario and the worst outcome from the negotiations. The best-case scenario and the optimum solution that we are aiming for is a good deal. I also agree that the approach to the Brexit negotiations will be defining both for the UK and the EU.

Brexit Negotiations and No Deal Contingency Planning (4 Sep 2018)

Dominic Raab: ...is for the welfare of UK fishermen and women. There are intensive negotiations between London and other capitals to make sure that we have a responsible approach to those recent issues. On the Brexit negotiations, the hon. Gentleman will know that our White Paper proposals envisage us becoming an independent coastal state. We will want to continue co-operating with our EU partners in this...

Brexit Negotiations and No Deal Contingency Planning (4 Sep 2018)

Dominic Raab: ..., and HMRC will of course be among those teams, to ensure that we are prepared not just with the regulatory changes that are required but with the human resources to make sure we can give effect to Brexit.

Brexit Negotiations and No Deal Contingency Planning (4 Sep 2018)

Dominic Raab: ...a deal; it has to be consensual and something both sides agree—we will have the technical notices, so that the guidance, the regulation and the team are in place to make sure we have as smooth a Brexit as possible in the circumstances.

Witnesses: (at 2:00 PM) Mr Dominic Raab MP, Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, Department for Exiting the European Union

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legislation (24 Jul 2018)

Dominic Raab: ...Kingdom; if the right hon. and learned Gentleman would roll over, it is a good job Labour is not handling the negotiations with the EU. This White Paper is about delivering a smooth and orderly Brexit and one that respects the referendum. I gently say to the Opposition that it is not entirely clear that it is Labour’s overriding objective to give effect to the referendum. Straight after...

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legislation (24 Jul 2018)

Dominic Raab: ..., the UK will leave the European Union, giving effect to the historic decision taken by the British people in the 2016 referendum. The Government are committed to delivering a smooth and orderly Brexit. That is why we have already passed the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018—[Laughter.] The shadow Foreign Secretary is laughing. She and her party voted against the Bill, thereby...

Exiting the European Union: Access to EU Markets (19 Jul 2018)

Dominic Raab: I thank the hon. Gentleman. Of course, many of the banks and people in the City are already preparing and are very confident that they can withstand any of the uncertainty in relation to Brexit negotiations. We have been preparing for some time now. I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Wycombe (Mr Baker) for all the preparatory work that he has done. We will be starting to step up...
