No-deal Update - Statement (3 Sep 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...local authorities. The Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government has regular conference calls with leaders and elected mayors. All local authorities have appointed a Brexit lead with funding that has been made available, and we are working extensively with local government in the regions and around the country. The noble Baroness’s points are well made.

No-deal Update - Statement (3 Sep 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...Northern Ireland Civil Service, and thousands of the best civil servants across the UK are working to ensure the smoothest possible exit. We have been helped by the Chancellor’s move to double Brexit funding for this year, announcing an additional £2.1 billion on top of expenditure already committed—so £6.3 billion in total has been allocated to prepare for life outside the European...

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...

Brexit: Appointment of Joint Committee - Motion to Agree (3 Jul 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...friends will attest, the committee has shown it has the will and the tools to scrutinise the Government on no deal—as, indeed, it should. For instance, noble Lords will recall its inquiry report, Brexit: Deal or No Deal, which built on evidence from government and a range of experts and stakeholders on both sides of the EU exit debate. The report and the subsequent debate made a...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: UK Trade with EU (2 Jul 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...is in the interests of both sides to maintain trading links once the UK has left the EU; to protect jobs and our economy while allowing us to honour the referendum and realise the opportunities of Brexit. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) publish estimates on trade in employment, including on the amount of jobs linked to exports. Their most recent data from...

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...

Brexit: Date of Exit - Private Notice Question (14 Mar 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...to leave with a deal then you either need to vote for this deal or tell us what other deal can be negotiated, which will require support. That is what the Opposition and those who are opposed to Brexit have not 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: 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...

Further Developments in Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (11 Mar 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...that the meaningful vote will take place in the other place tomorrow, Tuesday 12 March, and that the Motion will be tabled ahead of the debate. The other place will have the option to back the Brexit deal or to risk a delay that would mean months more of arguing about Brexit, prolonging the current uncertainty. It is important that we deliver on the result of the referendum and deliver...

Further Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (27 Feb 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...an awful lot of notice of them. There seem to be people from all sides shouting at all of us as we walk in. I often wonder why they think that it will make a difference if they shout loudly “Stop Brexit” every five minutes—that somehow we are all going to have a flash of inspiration and suddenly change our minds. The wider point, however, is that the votes of 17.4 million people...

Further Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (27 Feb 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...this afternoon. I do not know who writes this, but that is good. I must pay tribute to the stamina of many noble Lords on the speakers list today who have spoken in many, if not all, of the Brexit debates we have had in the past few months. Yet again, the challenge will be to introduce new points that we have not heard before: I am sure that noble Lords will rise to the occasion. As usual,...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Borders: Northern Ireland (21 Feb 2019)

Lord Callanan: The Prime Minister in her 5 February speech in Belfast reaffirmed the UK Government commitment to delivering a Brexit that ensures no return to a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland, including any physical infrastructure or related checks and controls. While technology could play a part in this, and alternative arrangements are being looked at, these must be ones that can be made...

EU Withdrawal - Motion to Take Note (13 Feb 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...I was aware of the number of Americans professing to have Irish roots. The answer is yes, I am, because many of them are indeed my relatives. I also have Irish roots. Indeed, I have discussed Brexit with many in the Irish American community. He might find that not all opinion is uniform on that matter.

EU Withdrawal - Motion to Take Note (13 Feb 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...noble Baroness, Lady Smith, which seeks to tie the Government’s hands in negotiations. We cannot support a Motion which mentions “all steps necessary” to avoid no deal without excluding “no Brexit” from the list of necessary steps. The Prime Minister has been clear that the Government want to leave the EU with a deal agreed with the European Union and with the support of...

EU Withdrawal - Motion to Take Note (13 Feb 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...of the Commons. I agree that this House is playing a crucial role in considering both primary and secondary legislation. In the last fortnight alone, this House has considered three important Brexit Bills: the Trade Bill, the Financial Services Bill and the Healthcare Bill, which goes through Committee next week.

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Borders: Northern Ireland (13 Feb 2019)

Lord Callanan: The Prime Minister in her 5 February speech in Belfast reaffirmed the UK Government commitment to delivering a Brexit that ensures no return to a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland, including any physical infrastructure. While technology could play a part in this, and alternative arrangements are being looked at, these must be ones that can be made to work for the particular...

Brexit: Parliamentary Approval of the Outcome of Negotiations with the European Union - Motion to Take Note (28 Jan 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...Lady Hayter, spent an awful lot of her speech telling us what she was against but very little of it telling us what she was in favour of. Of course, the only other guaranteed way to avoid a no-deal Brexit is to revoke Article 50, which would mean staying in the EU. That is certainly not acceptable to this Government and, as far as I am aware, it is not advocated by any other party in this...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Overseas Trade: Germany (24 Jan 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...by approximately 30 percentage points in the long run compared to the modelled White Paper scenario. This Government does not want or expect a ‘no deal’ scenario. We want to deliver an orderly Brexit, with a deal, that protects our union, gives us control of our borders, laws and money, and means that we have an independent trade policy. We are committed to achieving an ambitious and...
