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

Lord Callanan: ...I agree with my noble friends Lord Blackwell and Lord King, who made precisely this point. The amendment would bolster those who wish not to secure the best deal with the EU but rather to frustrate Brexit altogether—a point that was well made by my noble friend Lord Howard. However, I do not wish my response to be misinterpreted. I do not make these arguments because I think that the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (23 Apr 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...that is in force today. As the noble Baroness, Lady Brown, reminded us, when the Prime Minister launched the 25-year environment plan on 11 January this year, she said: “Let me be clear, Brexit will not mean a lowering of environmental standards”. We have already taken firm steps towards that goal, as my noble friend Lord Deben remarked. Our recent announcements include an increase in...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Brexit: Transitional Arrangements (4 Apr 2018)

Lord Callanan: The UK and EU negotiating teams have reached another important milestone in the Brexit process by agreeing the terms of a time-limited implementation period, ending on 31st December 2020. The agreement, which has been endorsed by the March European Council, will give businesses and citizens the time they need to put in place the new arrangements required, as the terms of our future...

Brexit: British Citizens - Question (29 Mar 2018)

Lord Callanan: It depends on what the Labour Party’s policy is for this week, but if the six tests are the policy for this week, of course we will try to reach a Brexit deal that works for everyone, is good for jobs, for British industry and for people, and respects the result of the referendum.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (10th Day) (Continued) (26 Mar 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...statements. I was delighted to see that he made his way up to Newcastle yesterday but, unsurprisingly, he forgot to ask me to meet him for a drink while he was there to speak to his 200 or so Brexit-disliking supporters.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (10th Day) (Continued) (26 Mar 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...have a practical answer to the question of how it will be funded. Clause 12 and Schedule 4 are that answer here. I hasten to add that they are not the answer to all money matters in relation to Brexit. The withdrawal agreement and implementation Bill will provide the statutory underpinning for paying our negotiated financial settlement with the EU and any other financial matters related to...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Borders: Northern Ireland (26 Mar 2018)

Lord Callanan: ..., recognising the unique circumstances in Northern Ireland, and our shared commitments to avoiding a hard border. The UK and the EU negotiating teams reached another important milestone in the Brexit process by agreeing the terms of a time-limited implementation period. Significant progress has also been made to turn the Joint Report from December into the legal text of the Withdrawal...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (8th Day) (Continued) (19 Mar 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...negotiation position, as it would encourage the EU to propose the worst possible deal in the hope that we would somehow change our mind. The Government’s focus now is on making a success of Brexit, working to get the best deal possible and taking decisions on what kind of country the UK will be in the future. The Government are committed to a positive new relationship with the EU and...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (8th Day) (19 Mar 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...of Commons. I have not, but I am sure that if they want a vote on any subject they like they are quite capable of deciding the matter themselves. Our focus now should be on making a success of Brexit, working to get the best deal possible, providing certainty and taking decisions on what kind of country the UK will be in the future. That is the clear instruction given to this Government in...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued) (14 Mar 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...UK’s exit from the EU will not have any bearing on the location of the bank’s headquarters in London, which is enshrined in its articles of agreement. The EBRD has also publicly reiterated that Brexit will have no impact on the UK’s membership and the London headquarters. Amendment 167 is therefore unnecessary and would have no effect on UK membership, which will continue unaffected...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: UK Relations with EU (13 Mar 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...security partnership in Munich last month. These are in addition to a speech by the Secretary of State of Exiting the EU and speeches by a number of other cabinet ministers on the ‘road to Brexit’.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued) (12 Mar 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...for reasons that I will explain. It would not be practical given that the negotiations on the UK’s future relationship and the eventual arrangements for market access in financial services post Brexit have yet to begin. It will be important that in entering negotiations the UK retains a degree of flexibility as to what the precise arrangements for market access for financial services...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (5th Day) (7 Mar 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...due regard to the need to eliminate discrimination and other conduct prohibited under the 2010 Act. We further confirmed in the other place that similar statements will be made in relation to other Brexit Bills. So we have clearly shown our commitment to maintaining the protections in our existing equality legislation, and ensuring that Brexit will not see the UK somehow regressing in this...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (5th Day) (7 Mar 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...launched a formal public consultation, inviting views on a range of possible paths to a brighter future for farming. Health and Harmony: The Future of Food, Farming and the Environment in a Green Brexit describes how, in future, money can be redirected from direct payments under the common agricultural policy—which are purely based on the amount of land farmed—to a new, more...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (5th Day) (7 Mar 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...Lord is aware, I said that the common agricultural policy is based on land-based production subsidies, whereas we can now move to other, different policies instead. This is one of the benefits of Brexit; the common agricultural policy has been one of the worst things the European Union is responsible for.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (5th Day) (7 Mar 2018)

Lord Callanan: Yes, I believe Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will be able to pursue their own policies in this regard—which is another benefit of Brexit. Amendment 67 (to Amendment 66) withdrawn. Amendment 67A (to Amendment 66) not moved.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (5th Day) (7 Mar 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...out our determination to leave our environment in a better state than how we found it and outlines steps to achieve this. Launching the plan, the Prime Minister stated: “Let me be very clear. Brexit will not mean a lowering of environmental standards”. Of course, we are committed to internationally recognised environmental principles, as set out in the Rio Declaration on Environment...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued) (5 Mar 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...Our ability to support and safeguard children’s rights will not be affected by the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. I have heard the concerns of the noble Baroness, Lady Massey, about the impact of Brexit on children’s rights and the need to ensure that their welfare, safety and best interests are not compromised as we leave the EU. The rights and best interests of children are already,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (26 Feb 2018)

Lord Callanan: We have been clear that respecting the Brexit vote means delivering on having control of our own laws. Our Supreme Court will be the ultimate arbiter of our own laws and it would not be appropriate to submit ourselves to the jurisdiction of a foreign power.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (26 Feb 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...framework programmes to research in the UK, in which we have an international reputation. We are working hard to secure a research and innovation agreement with the EU that will take effect after Brexit.
