European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Commons Amendments: Motion A (22 Jan 2020)

Lord Callanan: ...end of what seems like a very long road. The final stages of this Bill represent something that many of us thought might never happen: Parliament passing the legislation necessary to implement a Brexit deal and finally to deliver on the 2016 referendum. It has been no mean feat, with nearly 40 hours of debate and over 100 amendments in this House in the past fortnight alone. Last night, I...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Third Reading: Motion (21 Jan 2020)

Lord Callanan: ...their views known and we must now see what the elected House thinks of those amendments. All noble Lords must bear this in mind that, as we prepare to leave the EU on 31 January, and deliver the Brexit that the people voted for. I beg to move.

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 19 (21 Jan 2020)

Lord Callanan: ..., enhancing what protections are currently provided under EU law. If we do, we should consider the consequences. However, as the noble Lord, Lord Howarth, correctly pointed out, the whole point of Brexit is to take back control. These are decisions which we can make for ourselves in this Parliament in future. We do not need an external power dictating what we do in these regards. On...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Second Reading (13 Jan 2020)

Lord Callanan: ...learned friend Lord Keen is here and stands ready to address noble Lords’ contributions at the end of the debate. Passing this Bill will allow us to honour the result of the 2016 referendum, get Brexit done and focus on our other national priorities. I beg to move that the Bill now be read a second time.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 - Motion to Take Note (8 Jan 2020)

Lord Callanan: ...asked by the noble Baroness, Lady Ludford, on the repeal of Section 13 there is no need for a further meaningful vote in Parliament. The public showed in the general election that they want to get Brexit done and to leave the EU with a deal on 31 January. The Bill will give Parliament the chance to repeal the conditions under Section 13 set out in the previous Parliament. With regard to...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 - Motion to Take Note (8 Jan 2020)

Lord Callanan: ...) (No. 2) Act 2019. I hope that when these matters are considered in this House, noble Lords will agree with me that these requirements are no longer necessary and that, whatever one’s view on Brexit, they have served their purpose and it is now time for us to move on. Section 13 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 and the European Union Withdrawal (No. 2) Act 2019 have detained...

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: Preparations - Statement (21 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: After my experience with Commissioner Timmermans, I do not think I am going to get into “Dad’s Army” analogies any further. We want to get Brexit done by 31 October. We have spoken about these issues and debated them endlessly and it really is time to get on with it.

Brexit: Preparations - Statement (21 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: wants to avoid a no-deal exit, the best thing to do is to vote for a deal. However, the suspicion remains that it is not a no-deal exit that Labour is against but an exit at all. It is against Brexit. I apologise to the noble Baroness, Lady Smith, if she did not get a copy of the Statement in advance. It is very difficult to respond to these matters if one has not seen them beforehand,...

Brexit: Preparations - Statement (21 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: extension to the 31 October deadline as required under the terms of the EU (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act; the second setting out the Government’s position that we believe that a delay to Brexit would be corrosive—a view shared by the EU 27 leaders. With no clear agreement yet in this House to ratify our withdrawal agreement and no certainty that an extension will be granted by 31...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: I think it best if we have a conversation outside the Chamber on which different documents my noble friend is referring to. For more than three years, this House has examined Brexit in great detail, as correctly observed by the noble and learned Lord, Lord Judge, in his excellent speech. I pay tribute to the work of noble Lords and the many committees of this House which have looked at the EU...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: the people of Northern Ireland; it provides the foundations for an ambitious relationship with the EU founded on a comprehensive and balanced free trade arrangement; and it allows us to get Brexit done and leave the EU in two weeks’ time. In doing so, we can focus on the people’s priorities, so that the country can come together. I commend this deal to the House. Motion agreed.

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...

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

Lord Callanan: ...this country can be outside the EU. Although our focus remains on securing a deal, the Government are ready to leave without a deal, if necessary, on 31 October. Last week we published a Brexit—

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...

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

Lord Callanan: ...values abroad. The Government want an ambitious free trade agreement with the EU. The details of this partnership, as the noble Lord, Lord Butler, pointed out, are a matter for negotiations after Brexit. The Government are preparing for that negotiation, as I said in response to an intervention earlier, and we will work with a wide range of partners to ensure a successful outcome for UK...

Brexit: Preparations - Statement (8 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: One of the challenges of Brexit is internal security. We have done a huge amount of work on that behind the scenes. It is disappointing that the EU seems to be refusing to discuss many of those points with us, but we are, the noble Lord can be assured, putting in place all the appropriate mitigations so that we can still get access to much of this information.

Brexit: Preparations - Statement (8 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: ..., Lady Hayter, that what I found interesting about her lengthy contribution—she had a number of clever debating points to make—was that she said nothing at all about Labour’s policy on Brexit. Of course, as we all know, Labour is against everything: against a deal, against no deal, against revoking Article 50. One of these days, maybe even in our debates, we may get to discover what...

Brexit: Preparations - Statement (8 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: ..., too. If it does, there is still every chance that we will leave with a new deal. However, if the EU does not move, this Government are prepared to leave without a deal on 31 October. We must get Brexit done so that the country can move on and focus on improving the NHS, cutting crime, helping families with the cost of living and further improving school standards. In preparing for every...

Brexit: No-deal Tariff Schedules - Statement (7 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...the Minister of State for International Trade. The Statement is as follows: “On 13 March, the Government announced that they would implement a temporary tariff regime in the event of a no-deal Brexit. This regime would apply equally to all imports that are not subject to alternative trade arrangements and would apply for up to 12 months while a full public consultation will take place...
