Early Parliamentary General Election Bill - Second Reading (30 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...Research; a winter NHS crisis beckons; schools are still on short measures in some places; Northern Ireland has been sold short, and Johnson rumbled on that; and, vitally, the impact of a hard Brexit has yet to be felt, or even the arguments over it, as the noble Lord, Lord Wigley, said. So the Conservatives, for electoral advantage, which the Fixed-term Parliaments Act was meant to...

Brexit: Preparations - Statement (21 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...continued no-deal work is unsettling the financial, manufacturing, agricultural and service sectors. As Ian Wright of the Food and Drink Federation said, while we might all be “exhausted” by Brexit, this does not, “mean we sleepwalk into mistakes that will haunt the UK economy for a generation … The most urgent priority for the … industry has been to prevent a no-deal exit”. He...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ..., perhaps they are not meant to be enforced, with John Baron MP, having been reassured that if the trade deals are not successful by December 2020 we could leave on no-deal terms. Those extreme Brexiteers might still get their way, unless we include our aspirations for the future relationship as binding commitments in the withdrawal agreement Bill—effectively, the negotiating mandate or...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (15 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...foreign policy and security being perhaps the major casualties. Today we have heard again warnings from motor manufacturers of the bleak future that any no-deal exit would bring. Challenges about Brexit go much wider. They are about the sort of country we want and the role we want to play in the wider world. Some big decisions face us. As the European Council meets there are choices for...

Brexit: Preparations - Statement (8 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...Deputy Prime Minister of Ireland agrees with the Tusk statement, which she says, “reflects the frustration across EU and the enormity of what’s at stake … We remain open to finalize a fair #Brexit deal but need a UK Govt willing to work with EU to get it done”. We are pleased that the Government have published this document. However, let us be clear: we on this side of the...

Elections and Referenda: Protection Against Corruption - Question (7 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: Will the Minister assure the House that no government spending will be used to promote a partisan approach to Brexit, particularly as we are likely to have an election fairly soon? It appears to be the case now, because a whole lot of ads are being funded by taxpayers’ money saying that we will leave on 31 October, despite legislation passed, including by this House, which makes that...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (2 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...October. Anyway, as the noble Lord, Lord Cormack, suggested, that particular date is hardly sacrosanct, other than in the Prime Minister’s rhetoric. As the noble Baroness, Lady Altman, said, even Brexiteers never dreamed it was going to be 31 October on a no-deal basis. So we must be clear that we will need the extension allowed for in the law of the land, as Parliament has decided, if...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Committee: Amendment 1 (6 Sep 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...than are contained in his amendment. The amendment itself is probably not necessary and therefore we will not support it. I want to make one point about today. From today there are 55 days until Brexit. Anyone who has gone to the Hampstead Theatre recently will have seen the play “55 Days”. I remind noble Lords that it relates to the 55 days between the creation of the Rump Parliament...

No-deal Update - Statement (3 Sep 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...at Portsmouth on the flow of medicines? Secondly, what is their assumption of the risk of public disorder on exit day? Thirdly, what is the evidence that the Government’s “Get ready for Brexit” communications strategy will actually affect business preparedness, which they admit is currently very low? Frankly, the Government will have to do much better than they are currently doing if...

Prorogation Recall - Question (3 Sep 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...be called—unusually—on a Monday, 14 October. That would probably mean that we would not sit for about a week after that. Does the noble Earl think that that would be sufficient time to discuss Brexit and all its implications?

Brexit: Appointment of Joint Committee - Motion to Agree (3 Jul 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...reduced investment, as with Vauxhall in Ellesmere Port already, and thus fewer jobs. Car manufacturing has already fallen over each of the past 12 months, its trade body warning us that a no-deal Brexit would be a “knockout blow”, while Japan’s Foreign Minister urges Messrs Hunt and Johnson to avoid no deal, as Japanese car operations, “may not be able to continue”. Jeremy Hunt...

Consumer Rights Act 2015 (Enforcement) (Amendment) Order 2019 - Motion to Approve (25 Jun 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...in the fullness of time”, “very soon”, “imminently” or “before the summer”. We hope it might be the last of these, but it would be good to know. Finally, my fourth point returns to Brexit. Which? warns that we could be flooded by a rising tide of unsafe toys, cars and white goods if the Government fail to reform consumer enforcement, because of our potential exit from Safety...

British Citizens’ Rights - Statement (18 Jun 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...social insurance. Will the Minister undertake to ensure that there is no chance that we will leave the EU until and unless 1 million British people—by far the biggest national group affected by Brexit—have their legal and economic status protected wherever they live in the EU 27?

Referendums - Question for Short Debate (13 Jun 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...enormous. The uncertainty for business is costing billions. Reduced investment and preparations for no deal are costing hundreds of millions. Manufacturing representatives said today that a no-deal Brexit would be “commercial suicide”. The Cabinet has been warned that we are unprepared for a crash out. There is bewilderment among the CBI, BCC and Federation of Small Businesses at home...

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...this Bill in time for it to have effect. That was the point I made—that if we did not deal with the Bill before we ran out of time, there was no point in having it. I did not go into the issue of Brexit.

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (Exit Day) (Amendment) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (27 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...that the Cabinet Secretary and the Attorney-General informed Cabinet that if, at the end of the Letwin process, MPs passed a Motion mandating the Prime Minister to pursue a new route through the Brexit mess, whether a referendum, a customs union or another option, then the Prime Minister and the Government would be in breach of the Ministerial Code and the law if they failed to follow...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (25 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: .... The Archbishop of Canterbury—whose task of uniting 85 million Christians worldwide the Prime Minister has made look like a walk in the park—has launched five days of prayer as we approach Brexit. Business—the people importing and exporting—knows the cold reality of tariffs, non-tariff barriers, checks, delays, transport and handling costs, and also the need for legal, banking and...

Challenges to Validity of EU Instruments (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (14 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...ruled invalid by the CJEU remains on the UK statute book after we have left. Can the Minister outline how either his department or a successor department would monitor future CJEU rulings after Brexit to keep abreast of any such rulings which might be relevant to the UK statute book? Finally, there is the important issue of compensation, which was only slightly touched on by the noble...

Further Developments in Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (11 Mar 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: .... She failed to reach out to the 48% —who, my noble friend Lord Rooker reminded us, are 15.8 million people—who might accept that they lost the referendum but surely still have the right to a Brexit that would be the best possible one for the country. She failed to reach out to the Opposition, even after she lost her majority, to see whether a deal could be honed which could be...

Further Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (27 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...a 29 March departure is simply not going to happen. What we are witnessing, to the mystification of observers here and abroad, is a wholly divided Government and a Prime Minister who has let down Brexit voters by failing to provide the promised “smooth and orderly” departure to get the very best out of leaving—a Prime Minister who has unnerved the very businesses which have...
