European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (8th Day) (19 Mar 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...bodies, such as R3 or the City of London Law Society, who feel that the Government are not taking this seriously enough, have met with the IS and feel that they are not getting traction in the Brexit negotiations. Hence, I would argue the need for a political meeting. My ask today is a very easy one: will the Government agree to meet me and representatives from the field—perhaps the...

Brexit: Fashion Industry - Question (15 Mar 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...other countries. We also need the models and others to be able to move across borders so that they can perform or show their wares. Will the Minister give some assurance that, in the discussions on Brexit and the ability to move for work, this will be uppermost in their minds?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued) (12 Mar 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, I do not think that anyone who has read the excellent December 2016 report Brexit: Financial Services from our EU Committee chaired by the noble Baroness, Lady Falkner, will be under any illusion about the challenge that Brexit poses to this economically crucial sector of our economy. This evening we have heard of the needs both of those in the financial sector and of those who...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (28 Feb 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ..., is to use that same amount of money. The Exchequer Secretary, Robert Jenrick, promised, “to consult widely ahead of its launch”. However, he did not commit to matching ERDF funding after Brexit, so the consultation would presumably be about its use. We have been told: “The design … is currently being considered, including its funding arrangements, and further details will be set...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (28 Feb 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...over in this Bill should not be weakened. The British Medical Association, along with 12 royal colleges and unions, wrote to the Prime Minister in December calling on her to stand firm against any Brexiteers who want to scrap European laws, warning of risks to patient safety and arguing that even with current EU regulations, “fatigue caused by excessive overwork remains an occupational...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (26 Feb 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, as we have heard, these amendments relating to reciprocal issues are key to continuing to protect and assist British citizens after Brexit, including children and protected persons, in ways that hitherto our EU membership and cross-border agreements have provided. In particular these are the European arrest warrant, the mutual recognition of family court judgments, information...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (26 Feb 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...a welcome reminder from my noble friend Lord Adonis of the Prime Minister’s earlier, pre-referendum speech on the same issue. In Munich, she went on to outline her desire for an ambitious post-Brexit EU security relationship, talking about a security treaty as part of the “deep and special partnership” with the EU that she wants to see. However, as we have heard from most speakers in...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (21 Feb 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: at Committee stage, when that was never foreseen in the original Bill? Was it for some good legislative reason, or was it, as my noble friend Lord Hain suggested, to satisfy a certain hard Brexit group of MPs sitting on the Prime Minister’s shoulder, rather like the 60 who have been writing her helpful letters today? It certainly looks as if this was more to do with party...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (21 Feb 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...been reminded, she sent out her little chicks, and, indeed, a Fox, to make speeches far and wide—in fact, almost everywhere other than in Parliament—on their competing visions of what that post-Brexit future will look like. They are mostly doing that without a proper dialogue with consumers, with trade unions, with industry or with farmers. I will not have been the only one listening...

Brexit: EU Customs Union - Question (7 Feb 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...from the relationship with the EU. It said quite bluntly that those who are elected to govern now have to make a choice—it is make your mind up time. Will the Minister send a little memo to the Brexit sub-committee which is meeting today to urge it, for the sake of the country’s economy and not just for party unity, to look at jobs first and decide that whatever is best to get jobs and...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (31 Jan 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, this has been the most extraordinary debate, has it not? We have heard from former judges, Permanent Secretaries, EU Commissioners, MEPs, Cabinet and Brexit Ministers, and former Speakers, Leaders and Chief Whips of your Lordships’ House. We have heard from former ambassadors, negotiators, Attorneys-General, high commissioners and governors, party leaders, Chiefs of Defence, trade...

Open Skies Agreement (Membership) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (26 Jan 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...from this side. But seriously, the coverage, attention and energy that go into all this waste the chance to make a clear statement to the EU and more widely on how Britain sees its future after Brexit and on what sort of deal it wants with the EU 27. The Minister will be well aware of what Airlines UK, which represents the airlines, needs after Brexit: most urgently, a transition phase...

Brexit: Financial Services Sector - Private Notice Question (23 Jan 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...are not careful and do not know where we are going, the transition will be a gangplank leading to nowhere. It is over a year since the noble Baroness’s report on the financial services sector and Brexit was produced. We have no clear view of what the Government think. Is it that they do not know, that they dare not tell, or is it, as Nicky Morgan suggests, that they are not up to the task?

Brexit: Deal or No Deal (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...with perhaps £50 billion of investment lost. And of course it would mean no transition agreement, despite the proposal for an implementation period by the Chancellor and the Secretary of State for Brexit in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, although of course that is not possible without a deal. Thirdly, the Whitehall farce returned last week as the anticipated new “no-deal Brexit...

Brexit: Women in the Workplace - Question (16 Jan 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...equivalent in domestic law, so we would lose one of the fundamental standards underpinning the other regulations being brought across in the withdrawal Bill. Given that we have heard that the new Brexit Minister in the other House wants to get rid of such rights anyway, what comfort can this Minister offer to women that their right to equality will not be weakened?

Brexit: Trade in Non-financial Services (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (18 Dec 2017)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...-based”, I wondered whether he was referring to our Government, whose whole approach is in stark contrast to that of the EU, where a 30-page European Parliament paper details the effect of Brexit on services. As my noble friend Lady Donaghy said, good data is vital if we want to know where we are going. We now face a momentous decision about what sort of trading nation—indeed, what...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Brexit: Wales (12 Dec 2017)

Brexit: EU Citizenship - Question (11 Dec 2017)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...Ashton of Hyde, said in regard to the likely problems of our youth orchestras in travelling to the EU after March 2019: “Much more important is the visa requirements that will be needed after Brexit”.—[Official Report, 7/12/17; col. 1156.] Can the Minister update the House on such anticipated problems, of youth and amateur orchestras needing visas to go to the EU after Brexit, and...

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: To ask Her Majesty's Government what is their response to the call in the report by the House of Lords Justice Sub-Committee of the Select Committee on the EU Brexit: justice for families, individuals and businesses? (7th Report, Session 2016–17, HL Paper 134) for them to publish a coherent plan for addressing the post-Brexit application of the so-called Brussels regime.

Brexit: Devolved Administrations - Question (23 Nov 2017)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...? Further, the Commons was told that the impact assessment for the whole of the Welsh economy does not exist, but the Chancellor has said that the Government’s modelling enabled the impact of Brexit to be analysed by country. Can the Minister advise the House whether such work on the impact of Brexit on, for example, Wales will be shared with this House and the devolved Assemblies?
