European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 46 (16 Jan 2020)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ..., which essentially have the same effect. Under the Bill there will be no extra sifting procedure of the sort that we established in the 2018 Act, which was able to act as a further check on the Brexit statutory instruments that were laid using the negative procedure. Quite a large number of instruments were recommended for upgrade to the affirmative procedure, and the process helped to...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 41 (16 Jan 2020)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, perhaps it is a symptom of the way that Brexit has been handled that the noble Lord, Lord Wigley, even needs to table this amendment; we would have hoped that all this work had been done, published and debated well before any decisions were made. Indeed, I think reference was made yesterday to the Room 101 experience we had when we were called to be shown in secret the so-called...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 35 (15 Jan 2020)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...about the rules by which we can trade with the EU. Macron also said that a level playing field will make the negotiations “go pretty quickly”. As we know, the Prime Minister keeps saying “Get Brexit done”, but this also means getting an FTA before the end of the year. If we do not uphold workers’, consumers’ and environmental rights, this will not help the Prime Minister to get...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 27 (15 Jan 2020)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...be clear, since not all reports have been entirely accurate, that we know we are leaving the European Union at 11 pm on 31 January. Our objection to the clause is nothing to do with the date of Brexit but is because it places an unnecessary constraint on our negotiators. Why would we tie the hands of our negotiators if another few hours or days could get a better deal over the line? Our...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 21 (15 Jan 2020)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...and are now part of UK law—of course via case law. Without a guarantee to uphold the body of case law on workers’ rights, the Prime Minister’s commitment to protect our employee rights after Brexit will sound more hollow than any chimes of Big Ben, whether on 31 January or any other day. Clause 26, which has been dropped in with no rationale, prior debate, consultation or Green...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 18 (15 Jan 2020)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...been involved in developing policy know, if you do not discuss beforehand how it is going to be implemented, the chances are that the policy will not work. Given the importance of ensuring that Brexit works for all parts of the UK, including the devolved nations, and given the concerns of the devolved Administrations that they are being excluded from vital talks—as we have heard, an...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Second Reading (13 Jan 2020)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...be here saying, “Oops. Can we change what we’ve just agreed?” We will leave that for him to do. Our worries about the Bill stem from the Government’s own slogan, repeated just now, “Get Brexit done”. The electorate quite rightly judged that to mean “Come out by 31 January”. It did not mean “and do so by government diktat rather than by parliamentary process”, but that...

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...
