Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Anec (24 Sep 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they intend to continue to participate in ANEC: the European consumer voice in standardisation, after Brexit.

Brexit: No Deal - Question (11 Sep 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...EU had lost their status? Would it be a hard border in the island of Ireland? Would it be the sudden VAT rules, rules of origin and tariff checks at the border? Perhaps it will be the faces of the Brexiteers who meant only to blow off the wheels, not crash the whole economy. The Government are saying that Chequers is the only game in town, but they are throwing millions into preparing for...

Brexit: Negotiations and No-deal Contingency Planning - Statement (4 Sep 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...from the Statement—have failed to provide a workable path through the morass of negotiating objectives. To quote Bloomberg: “As politicians dither, Britain’s economy is taking a hit”, with Brexit costing 2% of economic output, even before we have left. During a summer of government squabbles, I spent time watching how fast lorries could load on to European ferries at the moment. I...

Brexit: Preparations and Negotiations - Motion to Take Note (23 Jul 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...he is not calling the EU a “foe”, he claims that the EU has treated the US unfairly, so he wants more access to our market, not opening up their market to us. It is a predatory policy towards a Brexit Britain, designed to take advantage of our need for trade deals. He wants America to sell us more agriculture and cars—and I see that Liam Fox is offering to reduce tariffs on US cars...

European Union (Information, etc.) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (20 Jul 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...what has happened to it. Is it lost? Has it been rewritten? Are there still squabbles? When can we expect it? There is another part of the Bill, on twinning. Other than the meaningless phrase “Brexit means Brexit”, which the Prime Minister likes to use a lot, there is her catchphrase, “We are leaving the EU but not Europe”—as if geographically that was possible, and some...

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: EU Grants and Loans (16 Jul 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: To ask Her Majesty's Government how they plan to structure the post-Brexit Shared Prosperity Fund; when it will become operative; what criteria will be used for the allocation of funds; and whether it will permit funds allocated for the devolved authorities to be allocated by them.

EU Exit: Future Relationship White Paper - Statement (12 Jul 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...other issues highlighted in the reports of the Lords EU Committee. We look forward to a second White Paper foreshadowing the withdrawal and implementation Bill next week. In today’s foreword, the Brexit Secretary talks of achieving agreements that are “unprecedented”, “unrivalled” and “unparalleled”. Given that we will be asking our European partners to break with their...

Written Answers — Home Office: UK Border Force (10 Jul 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...whether they have begun to work with airports and the air freight industry to develop a long-term plan for the Border Force to deal with the growth in demand for passenger and freight flights post-Brexit; and if so, when they plan to publish such a plan.

Written Answers — Home Office: UK Border Force: Recruitment (9 Jul 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the 300 additional Border Force staff they announced were to be recruited to relieve existing staff for training for post Brexit demands are in addition to the other announced increase of 1,000 new Border Force staff.

Brexit: UK-EU Relations (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (2 Jul 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...let them out until the white smoke appears. We face a serious situation. It is 461 days on, there are 270 days to go, and what do we know? We know there will certainly not be the smooth and orderly Brexit predicted by the Prime Minister. As the noble Earl, Lord Sandwich, said, the country remains divided, the Government having failed to repair the divisions of the referendum between the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments (18 Jun 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...would consider how to capture those demands and table the necessary amendment here in your Lordships’ House today. Instead, in the Government’s Motion F1, we have no proposal for a vote on the Brexit deal but simply a vote on a Motion—in neutral terms, I understand from my parliamentary draftsmen advisers that this is not a term that exists anywhere else in law, but be that as it...

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Report (12 Jun 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...told you that, and you will not have a lawyer at that point. These cases are where the consumer—in case the Minister wonders why I am here, it is because I am in my consumer role, rather than my Brexit role; he might have thought there was a European aspect—is always the small guy up against the big one, with disparity of power, according to the Transport Committee, or an asymmetric...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Third Reading (16 May 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...off our heads for carrying out our statutory, lawful duty to send back to the Commons those parts of the Bill we find deficient to meet the purpose of the proposed Act. We have even heard prominent Brexiteers in the Commons accuse the Lords of being “drunk with their own prejudices” or “traitors in ermine”. Even today the noble Lord, Lord Framlingham, talked of “dark days” and...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Third Reading (16 May 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...legislatures, as we heard, obviously. We know that this House regrets that absence. There is no doubt that we are partly in this position because of the failure of the Government to start their Brexit process by engaging with the devolved authorities. Indeed, there was some six months when the JMC did not even meet, even after the outcry over the initial Clause 11, which had been tabled...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (6th Day) (8 May 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...off the table. Her red lines, which closed down the possible positive and constructive development of a new partnership with the EU, were irresponsible, short-sighted and aimed more at her hard Brexiteers than at the interests of every part of the UK. Whether one is thinking about Ireland, Scotland, the regions, Welsh farming, manufacturing, the City, aerospace, automobiles or any other...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (6th Day) (8 May 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...the benefits of our EEA membership —perhaps even continuing our membership—while forming a customs union with that massive market just off our shores. We have been clear throughout that any Brexit deal must deliver a strong new relationship with the single market that ensures full tariff-free access, no new impediments to trade and no drop in rights and protections. No doubt this will...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (6th Day) (8 May 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...exactly what our future terms of trade will be. If the amendment is passed, it will remove the straitjacket that the Government inserted at the behest not of the negotiators but of certain ardent Brexiteers. Let us remove that straitjacket, make the task easier for the negotiators and reflect what our own EU Committee said: “The rigidity of the Article 50 deadline of 29 March 2019 …...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (6th Day) (8 May 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...Griffiths—who has now left the Chamber. I said, “I have to have a biblical quote”, but I am afraid he has a sense of humour and said, “The people who were wandering aimlessly in the pre-Brexit wilderness were soon squabbling among themselves, ignoring the advice of their leader”, and so on. But I will leave my noble friend’s helpful comments for another time. I say this...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (5th Day) (2 May 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...at the time of the Article 50 Bill, but we had an amendment at that stage that would have required the Government to set out the relationship with the devolved authorities, particularly over Brexit, obviously. We included at that stage formalising the Joint Ministerial Committee and I think it remains a good idea. At Second Reading, or certainly since, we raised the issue in the context of...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (4th Day) (30 Apr 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...unruly youngsters. That behaviour rolls on. On the one side, she is under huge pressure from within her Cabinet to abandon even consideration of a customs partnership, with, we read, senior Brexiteers “preparing for a showdown” at this week’s Brexit sub-committee. Incidentally, the showdown is in part led by Liam Fox who, in 2012, called for a new relationship with the EU based on,...
