Brexit: Non-Disclosure Agreements - Question (14 Mar 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...but standard non-disclosure agreements. These are not unusual; they were used extensively throughout periods of Labour Governments as well. Many businesses are speaking out with their opinions on Brexit. Everybody has an opinion on Brexit. Believe me, I get a lot of contributions, a lot of letters and a lot of emails, from businesses and individuals, on the subject of Brexit. Nobody is...

Brexit: Transition Period - Question (31 Jan 2018)

Lord Callanan: Yes. The Question was, “What are their objectives for the Brexit transition period?”. I answered what our objectives for the Brexit transition period were. The noble Lord then asked me about the wider renegotiation objectives, and I answered that—but of course the policy remains as set out by the Prime Minister.

Brexit: Preparations - Statement (21 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: I thank the noble Baroness for her question. I cannot believe that I am being lectured about sloganeering by the Liberal Democrats. I would repeat the slogan that they gave us on Brexit, but it would probably be unparliamentary language, so I had better not. We should indeed get Brexit done.

Brexit: Non-Disclosure Agreements - Question (14 Mar 2019)

Lord Callanan: I totally agree that business should not be gagged. Many businesses have rightly spoken out with their opinions on Brexit, both for and against. But we have been extremely open about no deal and the costs of Brexit. We published 106 technical notices and there has been extensive debate. A lot of economic analysis has been published. Nobody can say that they have not had all the relevant...

Brexit: Negotiations - Question (6 Sep 2018)

Lord Callanan: I am delighted to say that, in his advancing age, the noble Lord has lost none of his robustness. I am not sure I quite share his sentiments but we are committed to Brexit. In future, we want to be a nation in charge of our own laws, our own borders and our own money. This is what Brexit is all about. This is what people voted for and that is what we will deliver.

Brexit: Negotiations - Question (6 Sep 2018)

Lord Callanan: I thank my noble friend for his questions. Of course the Government share his desire for Brexit to be the success that we know it can be. We remain committed to the Chequers proposals and are negotiating on them. As the Prime Minister has said, the problem with a CETA-style arrangement is that it would mean a significant reduction in the access that we currently enjoy to each other’s...

Brexit: Free Trade Agreement - Question (14 May 2019)

Lord Callanan: .... I did answer the question. I will not go into details of the talks because they are still live and are still taking place. Suffice it to say that if there is to be a deal that will deliver Brexit, and if it is true that the Labour Party wants to deliver Brexit—I know that many of its members might disagree, but that is today’s position of the leadership—let us explore how that can...

Extension of Article 50 - Private Notice Question (25 Sep 2019)

Lord Callanan: I was in the Department for Transport when Monarch Airlines collapsed two years ago; I assume that noble Lords wish to equate that with Brexit as well. I think that for some noble Lords, if the sun did not rise in the morning it would be the fault of Brexit. I agree with my noble friend that we need to make all the appropriate preparations, but our focus is on getting a deal if we possibly...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (16 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: .... However, I repeat what I have said to the noble Lord on many occasions: we will of course abide by the law. If he wants to look at the record, he will see that my right honourable friend the Brexit Secretary, appearing in front of the Brexit Select Committee this morning, said something very similar. While our focus remains on securing a deal, we are still ready to leave without one on...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Statement (7 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...Baroness, Lady Smith, that we already have higher standards in virtually all those areas than the EU minimum standards. What standards we have in the future is one of the great opportunities of Brexit. What standards we might like to have is a matter for this House. The great thing about Brexit is that we no longer have to have these things dictated for us by the European Union. This is...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: UK Trade with EU: Duty Free Allowances (23 Jul 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...’s and EU’s ambition to agree a future economic partnership which ensures no tariffs, fees, charges of quantitative restrictions across all sectors ensuring tariff free trade with the EU after Brexit. If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, the UK would implement a temporary tariff regime (published on 13 March). This would apply for up to 12 months while a full consultation, and...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (16 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...will do my utmost to respond to as many points as possible, but I apologise in advance if I do not have time to get through everybody’s contributions. I will commence, as so many others did, with Brexit and my own department—as expected, it was covered by many noble Lords, including the noble Lords, Lord Desai, Lord Wrigglesworth and Lord Wigley, my noble friends Lord Ridley and Lord...

Aviation - Question (26 Jun 2017)

Lord Callanan: The whole issue of Brexit and how liberalised air transport will go forward will be the subject of negotiation. We want to ensure seamless access to European air transport matters, and I am sure the European aviation industry will want to access UK policy, too.

Brexit: Release of Impact Assessments - Statement (28 Nov 2017)

Lord Callanan: My Lords, many Members of this House are independent and we fully value their judgment. They will be able to look at the documents. Many Members are on the Brexit Select Committee and I am sure they will let us know their point of view in due course.

Brexit: Equalities Impact Assessment - Question (21 Dec 2017)

Lord Callanan: I assure the noble Lord that Brexit will go ahead. We are committed to it and will be leaving the EU in March 2019. None of that will impact on our membership of the Council of Europe.
