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...

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

Lord Callanan: ...delicate balance embodied in the Belfast/Good Friday agreement between both main traditions in Northern Ireland, grounded in agreement, consent and respect for minority rights. Any deal ahead of Brexit on 31 October must avoid the whole of the UK or just Northern Ireland being trapped in an arrangement without consent in which it is a rule taker. Both sides have always been clear that the...

Brexit: Parliamentary Processes - Question (3 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...without disruption. The proposal is a fair and reasonable compromise for all sides that respects the referendum result. We are sure that Parliament will want to work with the Government to get Brexit done on 31 October.

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (2 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...outcome of the 2016 referendum and the instruction of 17.4 million UK citizens has not waivered. I agree once again with my noble friend Lady Meyer when she says that it is time to move on and get Brexit done. Let me do my best to address as many of the key points arising from the debate as I can in my closing remarks. A number of noble Lords, including the noble Lord, Lord Liddle, asked...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (2 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...continue to work closely with the devolved Administrations. With regard to the question from the noble and learned Lord, Lord Wallace, we are committed to managing the policing implications of Brexit in the UK through a collective approach, notwithstanding that policing is, of course, a devolved matter in Scotland. I have participated in many meetings with the devolved Governments of...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (2 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...of areas of the commercial and economic life of Northern Ireland to an external body over which the people of Northern Ireland have no control risks undermining that balance. Any deal ahead of Brexit on 31 October must avoid the whole of the UK or just Northern Ireland being trapped in an arrangement where they are a rule taker. These discussions with the Commission and EU leaders have...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Exiting the European Union: Brexit (2 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...agree to that. ● They mean that EU rules cannot be maintained indefinitely if they are not wanted – correcting a key defect of the backstop arrangements. ● They provide for a meaningful Brexit in which UK trade policy is fully under UK control from the start. ● They ensure that the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland will remain open, enabling the huge gains of the Belfast...

Brexit Readiness and Operation Yellowhammer - Statement (25 Sep 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...Administration, but they were not successful. I personally believe that the withdrawal agreement that we negotiated was a compromise. Those who would have preferred a so-called “clean-break” Brexit did not get everything they wanted. There were some aspects of the withdrawal agreement that I was not completely happy with, but I thought it was a good compromise with the EU. It was hard...

Brexit Readiness and Operation Yellowhammer - Statement (25 Sep 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...question about whether we should continue to have identical legislation aligned to the European Union, or whether we might choose to do things differently. In my view, one of the huge advantages of Brexit is that we no longer have these things dictated to us—we can argue for them in this Parliament, and we can decide what standards we wish to have. I am in favour of higher environmental...

Brexit Readiness and Operation Yellowhammer - Statement (25 Sep 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...negotiations. Papers are being exchanged and talks are ongoing, so we are keen to get a deal. I can assume only that the bluster from the noble Baroness is to hide the absolute lack of clarity on Brexit from her party, which has no policy at all. She tells us that it is keen to avoid no deal. Of course, the Labour Party could have avoided that by voting for a deal, but it has so far...

Brexit Readiness and Operation Yellowhammer - Statement (25 Sep 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...—and the Government are committed to honouring that verdict. The Government are committed to securing a good deal with our EU partners, and negotiations have been led by the Prime Minister, the Brexit Secretary and the Foreign Secretary. Those negotiations have seen significant movement over recent weeks. Until recently, the EU has maintained that the withdrawal agreement was sacrosanct,...

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

Lord Callanan: No, I am afraid I would not agree with my noble friend that there is any parallel between the two events. The collapse of Thomas Cook, about which we are to get a Statement, is totally unrelated to Brexit and—

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...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Third Reading: Motion (6 Sep 2019)

Lord Callanan: ..., the issues at play here are not just technical. This is about seriously undermining negotiations that could achieve a deal before 31 October, frustrating the referendum result and stopping Brexit.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Third Reading: Motion (6 Sep 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...add that it undermines our efforts to renegotiate the withdrawal agreement and the political declaration and aims to tie the Prime Minister’s hands when he is seeking to secure the best possible Brexit deal. However, as I reiterated to the House yesterday, in line with assurances made by the Chief Whips in both Houses, if this Bill completes its remaining stages it is the Government’s...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Second Reading (5 Sep 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...to all the House staff, officials and noble Lords for their efforts last night, and for their cordiality and good humour late into the evening. It is appreciated by all of us. The public need Brexit to be delivered on 31 October and we cannot keep deferring it through successive and potentially indefinite extensions. Let us be clear—let us cut to the chase—this Bill is about crippling...

No-deal Update - Statement (3 Sep 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...of scenarios, with case studies. We will, of course, link this to the publicity campaign to try to make people—businesses, hauliers and others—aware of what they need to do to get ready for Brexit.
