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...

Leaving the European Union - Statement (26 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness for repeating the Statement on Brexit, which is clearly high on everyone’s agenda. I have sat beside my noble friend Lady Smith of Basildon on previous occasions when she has rightly described the Government as, “living in the moment ... managing to get through another week …providing less clarity rather than more … failing to give any confidence...

Small Business Index - Question (18 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...that our Government do not seem to know what is happening in their own industries. Mike Cherry of the FSB also mentioned part of the reason for their dismay. He asked how, two and a half years from Brexit, politicians could allow a situation whereby small businesses have no idea what environment they will be faced with on Brexit day, in less than 10 weeks’ time. We have already heard...

EU Withdrawal - Motion to Take Note (13 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, considering the lessons of the Brexit debate, the CER’s Charles Grant starts with a dig—although it might have been a compliment—at the noble Lord, Lord Kerr. He describes Article 50 as having been, “designed to put the departing country in a weak position”, but he then reckons that, “the British damaged their already weak hand by putting incompetent and ignorant...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: EU Grants and Loans (12 Feb 2019)

Brexit: Parliamentary Approval of the Outcome of Negotiations with the European Union - Motion to Take Note (28 Jan 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...Enders, CEO of Airbus—which has 14,000 skilled workers, plus 110,000 in the supply chain—says that the company could pull out of the UK if there is no deal, and begs us not to, “listen to the Brexiteers’ madness which asserts that, because we have huge plants here, we will not move and we will always be here. They are wrong”. Business Minister Richard Harrington described the...

Brexit: Consumer Protection (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...am sure that the Minister has been briefed that, as early as 13 February 2017, I had cause to write to his predecessor at the department, the noble Lord, Lord Prior, about the lack of meetings on Brexit with consumer representatives. Given that lack of engagement, on 22 March 2017, the chief executives of Citizens Advice and Which?, together with Martin Lewis of MoneySavingExpert.com,...

Consumer Protection (Enforcement) (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (15 Jan 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...it the recognition of legal judgments or—as in this case—the cross-border protection of consumer rights. It is an issue which, sadly, has been lacking throughout the Government’s approach to Brexit. We will have a longer debate on that tomorrow, when the Minister will also be replying, so perhaps I will just give him notice of one of the things I shall say then, which is to note the...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (3rd Day) (14 Jan 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...with third countries—a mythical future ignoring the protectionist “America first” tendencies of the US President. The PM wasted two years negotiating with her own party. She put blinkered Brexiteers in charge, who rejected all evidence at variance with their ideological obsession. Labour’s alternative—we have spelled it out—is a customs union.

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (3rd Day) (14 Jan 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: .... But that is little comfort, not just because Labour would have to rebuild the economy but because of the damage to public trust in democracy, especially among leave voters who genuinely believe Brexit would improve, not damage, their families’ lives and futures, as my noble friend Lord Liddle suggested. The deal fails to unite the country, and that is the result of the Government’s...

Brexit: People’s Vote - Question (12 Dec 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...and were able to lead straightaway to an election, so other votes are now awaited. We need votes in the other House on the withdrawal deal and a vote on this Government for their mishandling of Brexit, the NHS waiting lists, the universal credit shambles and much else besides. Will the Minister perhaps undertake to this House to advise Mrs May that the correct way forward for a Prime...

Brexit: Negotiations - Motion to Take Note (20 Nov 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: “Oh, what a tangled web we weave When first we practise to deceive!”. I am not talking about the figure on the bus but the Brexiteers’—and the Government’s—mantra that withdrawing from nearly half a century of an alliance would be “smooth and orderly”; this has even been repeated today. Indeed, so often did Ministers—the noble Lord, Lord Bridges, at the time—repeat...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Pets: Travel (14 Nov 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to their advice in the No Deal Technical Guidance, Taking your pet abroad if there’s no Brexit Deal, published on 24 September, what progress they have made in their discussions with the EU on pet passports; and what advice they plan to provide to owners by the end of November.
