Brexit: Constitutional Reform and Governance Act 2010 - Question (13 Dec 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, the report that has come out today from one of our committees, Brexit: The Options for Trade, says that a clear game plan is needed on trade and that it is unlikely that a bespoke EU trade agreement can be agreed within the two-year period, so a transitional deal will be vital. Could the Minister confirm that the transitional deal, as well as the final one, will be put before both...

Brexit: Consumer Rights Policy - Question (12 Dec 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...we have because we are part of a consumer alert system for faulty or dangerous goods. So may I ask the Minister to agree to undertake an audit of EU consumer protections that are at risk after Brexit, and also to meet relevant consumer organisations to see how to reduce the risk of losing those protections?

Brexit: UK-EU Relationship - Motion to Take Note (1 Dec 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...Europe. The City of London, the CBI, economists, industrialists, investors, consumer groups and trade unions all fear that the Government, whether by default or by intention, are heading for a hard Brexit, with the UK removed from the single market and even the customs union, and detached from common regulations and minimum standards. Labour’s preference would be for a Brexit that...

Article 50 (Constitution Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (22 Nov 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...“minimise the uncertainty”, asking her to set out what the Government will prioritise in their negotiations. As he said, the CBI membership is, “100 per cent committed to making the best of Brexit”, which, “means maintaining tariff-free access to the European market … maintaining … global trade deals … making the best … of talent available globally”. But, experienced...

United Kingdom: Single Market - Question (15 Nov 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: Is it not the truth that the Government were so ill prepared for Brexit that the reason they are not revealing their hand is that they do not know what their hand is? They seem to have three hands, with three different Ministers not in agreement and one of them even failing to meet the 27 fellow members of the European Union, whose support we will need in our negotiations. Therefore my...

Brexit: Article 50 - Statement (7 Nov 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...does not have power under the Crown’s prerogative to give notice pursuant to Article 50 … for the United Kingdom to withdraw from the European Union”. The High Court ruling will not derail Brexit. However, given that the Government were caught short by the referendum result and none of the preparatory work was done in the case of a Brexit outcome, can the Minister assure the House...

Brexit - Question (3 Nov 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, it is interesting that Brexit was all about parliamentary sovereignty. We regret that the Government will now appeal against the judgment to give this decision back to Parliament. In fact, if the Government do not like the Supreme Court’s decision, perhaps they will try the European Court of Justice. We accept that we will trigger Article 50, but what is important now are the...

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union - Statement (10 Oct 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...will not reconsider their decision to rule out a vote on the basic terms they propose before Article 50 is triggered? We understand the Government were caught short, having had no plans for Brexit in their 2015 manifesto—indeed, they were committed to, “safeguard British interests in the Single Market”. They then forbade Whitehall from making plans for a leave vote. But that is no...

Lobbying (Transparency) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (9 Sep 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...lobbying of Ministers, out of sight of their civil servants. This has to change, for the sake of our democracy. As has been stressed, this has never been more urgent than now, with the seismic Brexit decisions about to be taken, as mentioned by my noble friends Lord Brooke and Lord Howarth. Today, the Government should heed the wise words of the noble Lord, Lord Bew, that this question...

House of Lords Act 1999 (Amendment) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (9 Sep 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...way I hope anyone should take their seat here. We wish this Bill well. We hope very much that the Government are not going to have a knee-jerk reaction and say, “It’s not the time. We’ve got Brexit and other things. It’s just not a priority”. If they say that, change will never happen, so I urge them to think very carefully and give time to allow this Bill to proceed.

Investigatory Powers Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (13 Jul 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...that the financial impact of the legislation is transparent, not hidden, and to give forward confidence to those companies, whose activity in this country is already a little wobbly thanks to Brexit, that they will not at some point be hit by unexpected and unavoidable costs. As was mentioned, Amendment 89 also allows for a proper audit to ensure that operators do not provide unduly high...

Civil Service Fast Stream - Question (11 Jul 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...will be gender-balanced and representative of all our nations and regions, as well as of the population, to ensure that the interests of the whole country are central to the preparation for the Brexit negotiations?
