European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Dominic Raab: ...sum, the power under clause 9 is required to legislate domestically for the large number of more technical separation issues that must be settled in time for exit day if we are to have the smooth Brexit that, whether we voted leave or remain, we all agree is crucial from here on in. The regulations—

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Dominic Raab: ...scrutiny, with additional scrutiny provided by the new sifting committee. This is a time-limited and constrained power, but it is also an important power to help us to prepare for a smooth Brexit.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Dominic Raab: ...timing, so I will also touch on that, but first, let me set the scene. Clause 9 highlights the interaction between diplomacy at the international level and the domestic legislative preparation for Brexit. The Government are committed to securing the best deal that we can with our EU partners for the whole United Kingdom against the very acute time pressure set out under the article 50...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Charter of Fundamental Rights – Government Report (21 Nov 2017)

Dominic Raab: The right hon. Gentleman is absolutely right that we need to be very careful to navigate our post-Brexit period in a way that minimises litigation. I cannot see that such litigation would be good for the UK and its taxpayers, and it is not good for sustaining a healthy relationship with our EU partners. We do, of course, have article 8 in the ECHR, which is directly incorporated via the Human...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Charter of Fundamental Rights – Government Report (21 Nov 2017)

Dominic Raab: ...Chair of the Select Committee that the Government will bring forward an amendment before Report stage that will require Ministers to make a statement before this House in the presentation of any Brexit-related primary or secondary legislation on whether and how it is consistent with the Equality Act. I hope that reassures the right hon. Gentleman that the Government are serious about...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Charter of Fundamental Rights – Government Report (21 Nov 2017)

Dominic Raab: ...before Report stage, dealing explicitly with the Equality Act issues that hon. Members have raised, including by requiring Ministers to make a statement before the House on the consistency of any Brexit-related legislation with the Equality Act. It is worth reinforcing the point that the charter is not the original source of the rights contained within it. It was only intended to...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Charter of Fundamental Rights – Government Report (21 Nov 2017)

Dominic Raab: ...to hon. Members, that have been raised. Clause 5 serves two key strategic objectives: taking back democratic control over our laws and making sure we leave the EU in a way that facilitates a smooth Brexit and minimises legal uncertainty. The Bill aims to provide that the laws which apply immediately before exit day will continue to apply in the same way after we leave. Of course, the act...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: EU Protocol on animal sentience (15 Nov 2017)

Dominic Raab: ...hon. Member for Greenwich and Woolwich (Matthew Pennycook). The two strategic objectives of the Bill are to take back democratic control over our laws, and to do so in a way that ensures a smooth Brexit. Clause 4 helps us to deliver on both aims. Before talking about the amendments and the application of that clause, it is worth briefly explaining the value of clause 4, which is a sweeper...

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

Dominic Raab: .... Equally, it is worth reaffirming that clause 6 encapsulates the Bill’s two key strategic objectives: to take back democratic control over our laws, and to do so in a way that delivers a smooth Brexit with legal certainty.

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

Dominic Raab: ...would be to create an indefinite and indeterminate transitional period, which rather raises the question of whether the Labour party is really serious about facilitating the process of a smooth Brexit at all.

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

Dominic Raab: ...leave the EU in the referendum. The second thing that the Bill does is make sure there is legal certainty, with a smooth transition for citizens and businesses, mitigating one of the key risks of Brexit, which I believe is felt by people whether they voted leave or remain.

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

Dominic Raab: ..., that we have commissioned work to be done on an amendment that the Government will table before Report. It will require Ministers to make a statement before the House in the presentation of any Brexit-related primary or secondary legislation on whether and how it is consistent with the Equality Act 2010. I hope that gives her the reassurance she needs that the Government are serious...

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

Dominic Raab: ...their own case law in the ordinary way. We have, in my view at least, the finest judiciary in the world. Our courts are fiercely independent of Government, as they have already proved during the Brexit process. The clause will provide them with clarity about how they should interpret retained EU law after exit. As we take back control over our laws, it must be right that the UK Supreme...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: Legal Jurisdictions (31 Oct 2017)

Dominic Raab: We recognise the distinct legal systems across the UK. We engage with our counterparts in the devolved Administrations to prepare the ground for Brexit, in terms both of achieving a smooth transition on things such as civil and judicial co-operation, and of seizing the global opportunities for the UK legal sector, which contributed around £25 billion to the UK economy last year.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (5 Sep 2017)

Dominic Raab: ...trade surplus of £3.4 billion to the UK economy. The UK is a global leader in dispute settlement. We are working with the sector to promote this key comparative advantage. It is a priority for the Brexit negotiations, and, as a global leader, this is the message my ministerial colleague Lord Keen will be taking to the International Bar Association conference in Australia just next month.

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Power to notify withdrawal from the EU (13 Mar 2017)

Dominic Raab: ...tonight. I want briefly to address amendment 2 on the final vote. As others have said, it is quite wrong for the noble Lords to abrogate for the other place a right of unelected peers to veto Brexit at the eleventh hour. But more than that, it would be entirely counterproductive as a matter of diplomatic practice, with Jean-Claude Juncker talking about the possibility of the UK rejoining...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Dominic Raab: ...He explained that the economy was not growing fast enough. In fact, the British economy was the second fastest growing in the G7 last year, as it is this year, despite all the doom and gloom around Brexit. He needs to look at the economic facts. The right hon. Gentleman went on to say that real wages are falling, which hon. Members have returned to on several occasions. I will talk about...

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

Dominic Raab: ...Britain would leave the EU without agreeing terms. On the new relationship agreement, the UK Government would of course be free to revert for further negotiations, but that could not delay or stop Brexit from happening under the terms of article 50. Those facts will rightly and understandably focus our minds, as they are doing here today, and with a sense of trepidation. They will also...

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

Dominic Raab: ...illegal because there is no scope for a departing member, which has triggered article 50, to reverse its decision. That is clear from article 50(5). The amendment is clearly designed to reverse Brexit, despite Members passing the 2015 referendum legislation by six to one on the very clear understanding that we would respect the result. The amendment is probably beyond undemocratic and...

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...
