Results 21–26 of 26 for brexit speaker:Liz McInnes

European Medicines Agency — [Mr Steve McCabe in the Chair] (12 Oct 2016)

Liz McInnes: ...Nobel prizes for science. I congratulate them and their teams on those awards. Both those eminent British-born scientists have worked in the UK and abroad, and each of them warned that the risk of Brexit could mean “a big negative” for British science. We must continue to foster scientific excellence post Brexit, full stop. Retaining the EMA here in London is essential to harbouring...

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

Liz McInnes: As chair of the all-party group on medical research, I am extremely concerned about the impact of Brexit on scientific and medical research in this country. Scientists have always worked collaboratively across borders, but researchers are now worried about funding and about the job insecurity and uncertainty faced by their EU national colleagues. Can the Secretary of State reassure...

Exiting the European Union (5 Sep 2016)

Liz McInnes: I am surprised by the right hon. Gentleman’s assertion that the mandate for Brexit is overwhelming. I remind him that 16 and 17-year-olds, whose future as European citizens will be most affected by the decision, were denied a vote. While the Secretary of State is speaking with stakeholders, what steps will he take to ensure that young people are given a voice and a say in their future?

Higher Education and Research Bill (19 Jul 2016)

Liz McInnes: ...as part of it. It is absolutely vital that student voices be heard. The other issue I wish to focus on is the result of the referendum. The parliamentary cycle will now be dominated by Brexit discussions. Until we know what Brexit actually means, and the relationship that we wish to have with and within the EU, this Bill cannot really make any progress. There are more than 125,000 EU...

Student Loans Agreement — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (18 Jul 2016)

Liz McInnes: ...increase in tuition fees from £3,000 a year to £9,000 a year. In her role as Home Secretary, the new Prime Minster wrongly deported 48,000 international students, and that was before we voted for Brexit. Students are clearly receiving the worst dealt hand of the lot. The retrospective changes to the student loan repayment system are unacceptable, unjust and underhand. As many Members and...

Points of Order: [2nd Day] (14 Jul 2016)

Liz McInnes: ..., now is the time to do so. We must acknowledge the errors of Iraq and implement the lessons in today’s context. That context came 13 days before the inquiry report was published in the form of Brexit. Some Members have infamously said outside this House that the public are “fed up with experts”. That, as with Iraq, is flawed intelligence. Now more than ever, the UK needs experts....
