Results 21–29 of 29 for brexit speaker:Lord Ashton of Hyde

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day) (30 Oct 2017)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...Stevenson, we have not forgotten the importance of a free flow of data. In fact, ensuring we maintain a free flow of data is our number one priority, and we want to achieve that from the moment of Brexit, not wait to become a third country and then start the application process for adequacy. I direct those remarks especially to the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones. That is why last year we...

Battle of Passchendaele - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2017)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...Corps, comradeship, mental health, the meaning of memory, fake news, the nature of sacrifice, the role of animals, the debate over military tactics, links to the Europe of today and, inevitably, Brexit? Let me concentrate on what we have done to commemorate the third Battle of Ypres and how the First World War commemorations have extended across the country, with a little about 2018. As...

Data Ethics Commission - Question (10 Jul 2017)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...has been discussed in many multinational organisations—including the EU, I completely agree. One point of the data protection Bill is to try to get equivalence in data flow across borders after Brexit, but the point that the noble Lord makes is right: it is not always easy but we have to lead the way to show that an ethical regime is the way forward.

Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (29 Jun 2017)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...and seizing the opportunities for every community in our country to benefit as we leave the European Union. It made it clear that this Government shall deliver the will of the British people with a Brexit deal that commands the greatest possible public support. It also outlined plans for a stronger, fairer Britain, through strengthening our economy, tackling injustice and promoting...

Digital Economy Bill - Report (2nd Day) (20 Mar 2017)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...Paper; we have promised to publish it in June and we are having round tables before that. As far as legislative time is concerned, I too heard the “Today” programme this morning. Of course, Brexit is going to take a lot of time, but there is still room for the domestic agenda. I think we can be certain that protecting women against violence, and other things like that, are going to be...

Brexit: Creative Industries - Motion to Take Note (19 Jan 2017)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: My Lords, this has been a fascinating debate on important issues. It is also important for the kind of country that we want to be post Brexit. We therefore owe a debt of gratitude to the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, for securing the debate. I am also grateful to all other noble Lords who have made thoughtful contributions about something we care about. This sector is important economically...

Brexit: Creative Industries - Motion to Take Note (19 Jan 2017)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...control over funding and make regulatory decisions subject to Parliament. As I just said, the UK has a long history of partnerships and co-operation with other countries within and outside the EU. Brexit presents an opportunity to forge new partnerships. For example, the Culture Secretary recently led the largest ever UK culture and creative industries delegation to China, during which she...

Brexit: Creative Industries - Question (27 Oct 2016)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...many meetings about the creative industries—and even if it was not for the cultural aspects, the fact that they are so important economically means that they are very much at the top table when Brexit is discussed. To show that in some way, the Secretary of State for DCMS is a member of the Cabinet’s economy and industrial strategy sub-committee, which met yesterday.

Economy and Finance - Motion to Take Note (9 Jun 2016)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...and I think noble Lords know the results of the central scenario. Some people have derided this work, but the assumptions are clear and open and it is a genuine attempt to estimate the effects of Brexit. I do not see any comparable document from the other side. All the alternatives to membership that have significant access to the single market would require the UK to implement its rules,...
