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: 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 and No-deal Contingency Planning - Statement (4 Sep 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...practical. Were we able to carry on with membership of the European Economic Area, of course freedom of movement would continue, which I think would disappoint a lot of people who voted for Brexit, while the legal options are not straightforward. It would require the agreement of existing EEA countries and the ongoing agreement and co-operation of the EU, which would not necessarily be...

Brexit: Negotiations and No-deal Contingency Planning - Statement (4 Sep 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...of the House I shall now repeat a Statement made in the other place. The Statement is as follows: “With permission, Mr Speaker, I would like to provide the House with an update on the progress of Brexit negotiations and the Government’s no-deal contingency planning. On Friday, I was in Brussels for the fourth time since I became Secretary of State for a further round of talks with...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Service Industries: UK Trade with EU (22 Aug 2018)

Lord Callanan: In its White Paper the Government is advancing a detailed proposal for a principled and practical Brexit, including in financial services. The UK proposes a new economic and regulatory arrangement with the EU in financial services. This would maintain the economic benefits of cross-border provision of the most important international financial services traded between the UK and the EU. We...

Brexit: Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement - Statement (24 Jul 2018)

Lord Callanan: ..., the UK will leave the European Union, giving effect to the historic decision taken by the British people in the 2016 referendum. The Government are committed to delivering a smooth and orderly Brexit. That is why we have already passed the EU withdrawal Act through Parliament to ensure that our statute book functions after exit, whatever the outcome of the negotiations. I am grateful to...

Brexit: Preparations and Negotiations - Motion to Take Note (23 Jul 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...to decide the cases before them, applying UK law. In response to the points raised by the noble Lords, Lord Adonis and Lord Bew, I should say that the Government’s proposal for a principled Brexit will deliver for our union—for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland—while protecting the economic and constitutional integrity of the United Kingdom. Our proposals mean that goods...

Brexit: Preparations and Negotiations - Motion to Take Note (23 Jul 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...I am pleased to say that this appears to be a position that we share with the Labour Party. Last week the Huffington Post reported that the shadow Foreign Secretary categorically ruled out a second Brexit referendum. She said that, “we went ahead and had a referendum and we lost it and overwhelmingly, above everything else, we are Democrats, so we have to do as instructed”. On this one...

Brexit: Preparations and Negotiations - Motion to Take Note (23 Jul 2018)

Lord Callanan: .... Before I resume my place, let me make it clear that we strive to strike the very best deal with the EU, and whatever the outcome of our negotiations, we stand ready to make a success of Brexit.

EU Exit: Future Relationship White Paper - Statement (12 Jul 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...and good will is not reciprocated. On Monday, I spoke with my right honourable friend the Prime Minister. We agreed to step up our planning for a no-deal scenario, so that the UK is ready for Brexit no matter what the outcome of these negotiations. It is the responsible thing for a Government to do. This White Paper sets out the right Brexit deal, delivering on the result of the...

Brexit: European Commission Discussions - Question (9 Jul 2018)

Lord Callanan: The former Secretary of State can speak for himself, but I am focused on helping to deliver the Brexit that the country voted for: one that leaves the single market, one that leaves the customs union, one that leaves the common agricultural policy and common fisheries policy and one that brings back control to this Parliament and this country.

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Brexit (3 Jul 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...broadly across the economy to hear business’ priorities and issues, to reassure them on our vision for the future economic partnership with the EU, and discuss the opportunities presented by Brexit. We have made significant progress in the negotiations, including securing political agreement on the implementation period, something of great importance to many businesses and...

Brexit: UK-EU Relations (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (2 Jul 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...48% who voted to remain. I do not know whether he made that point to the committee during his evidence, but my friend Daniel Hannan MEP has said on a number of occasions that we need to construct a Brexit that can take all parts of the country with us and accommodate all the different points of view. That would include those who voted remain as well as those who voted to leave. To...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments (18 Jun 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...tailored purely to the needs of our country. I hope that noble Lords will accept the amendment sent to us from the other place and recognise that it underpins our pledge to use the opportunity that Brexit provides to strengthen and enhance our environmental protections, not to weaken them. We continue to welcome consultees’ views as part of the ongoing consultation on environmental...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments (18 Jun 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...who I know feels passionately about these issues—that we agree with her that the environment should be left in a better state than when we inherited it, and that we want to use the opportunity of Brexit to design environmental policies that in many respects are more advanced than those of the European Union but are tailored purely for the benefit of the United Kingdom. I am sorry that...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Third Reading (16 May 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...this Bill to the originally announced process. I realise that lots of noble Lords want to use this legislation as a way to both influence the legislation and in some cases to prevent the process of Brexit. But we are trying to put forward revisions to the statute that will ensure that European regulations will continue to have effect in British law after the end of the period.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Third Reading (16 May 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...settlement and citizens’ rights before Christmas. We agreed the implementation period in March. I realise that that the noble Baroness and many of her colleagues do not want the process of Brexit to proceed, but we are acting as a responsible Government and endeavouring to agree these things in a timely and proportionate manner. We have agreed the details of an implementation period....

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (4th Day) (30 Apr 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...have used Parliament’s input to shape our approach to negotiations so far. Indeed, I conclude by quoting some wise words from our own House’s EU Committee’s fourth report of 2016-17, titled Brexit: Parliamentary Scrutiny: “Parliament should not seek to micromanage the negotiations. The Government will conduct the negotiations on behalf of the United Kingdom, and, like any...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (4th Day) (30 Apr 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...and to which more than half the noble Lords in this House are affiliated. It is on the basis of that commitment that we are here today: the Bill is a necessary component of delivering a successful Brexit. Fundamentally, it is about providing legal certainty, for businesses here and abroad, and for citizens in both the UK and EU—which was also a point well made by my noble friend Lord...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (4th Day) (30 Apr 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...I thank all the contributors to this debate. It is right that we have taken the time to discuss it at length, because this amendment has potentially serious implications for delivering a successful Brexit. Of course, I understand why this amendment might look notionally appealing, at least—it triggers a greater role for Parliament should any of the deadlines set by the amendment pass...
