European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Interpretation of retained EU law during transitional period (14 Nov 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ...’ rights. If the UK’s courts do not pay due regard to decisions of the Court of Justice, there will be no provision to ensure that rights in the United Kingdom keep pace with EU rights after Brexit or even to encourage that to happen. That could lead to rights upheld domestically lagging behind international standards, which I am sure we would want to avoid.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Interpretation of retained EU law during transitional period (14 Nov 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ...and environmental standards. The Exiting the European Union Committee, of which I am a member, has heard much evidence recently about the importance of preserving rights protections after Brexit. EU case law has had an important impact on equality rights in the UK, and my amendment seeks to ensure that British courts will continue to pay due regard to that jurisprudence as our law...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Leaving the EU: Immigration Rules (20 Nov 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ...who work in Scotland contribute an average of £34,400 each per annum to gross domestic product—that is more than £4.4 billion a year. Does the Home Secretary agree that that evidence shows that Brexit is putting a vital contribution to Scotland’s economy at risk?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Charter of Fundamental Rights – Government Report (21 Nov 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ...spokesman told a routine Westminster briefing that the Government expect “the ECJ’s role to be unchanged during an ‘implementation period’ of around two years following the official Brexit date in March 2019”. Are those on the Treasury Bench aware of that statement? Can they explain to us how it impacts on what we are debating today? If the Prime Minister is of the view, as her...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Charter of Fundamental Rights – Government Report (21 Nov 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ...now been dropped and the Government are backing down on that one. Unfortunately, I very much doubt that we will be in the mood for celebration as we are facing the Government’s chaotic plans for Brexit, and that is what we have to discuss today. My colleagues in the Scottish Government in Edinburgh have recently reiterated their firm commitment to the idea that international human rights...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Charter of Fundamental Rights – Government Report (21 Nov 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ...everything else at the point of the snapshot is what will cause uncertainty. I do not know whether I would go so far as to call it chaos. After all, there is going to be so much chaos around after Brexit, and a difficulty in establishing the difference between fundamental rights and general principles might not be the biggest example of that chaos. However, there will be legal uncertainty....

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Charter of Fundamental Rights – Government Report (21 Nov 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ...there is not a problem. If I may say so, this illustrates the whole problem with the British Government’s approach to the unique situation in which Northern Ireland finds itself as a result a Brexit. There is a constant parrying, and saying, “There is not a problem, it can all be sorted out. It will all be fine.” This is what is causing us problems in the negotiations with the EU27,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Charter of Fundamental Rights – Government Report (21 Nov 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ...citizens and businesspeople the right to sue to enforce their rights and to realise damages if their rights have been breached? Why do that unless it is part of a wider agenda—one bigger than Brexit—that is about rolling the United Kingdom back from its adherence to international human rights norms? The Government need to think carefully about the message they are sending out. It was...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Charter of Fundamental Rights – Government Report (21 Nov 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ...relating to the statement made by the Prime Minister’s spokesperson that the Government expect the ECJ’s role to be unchanged during an implementation period of two years following the official Brexit date in March 2019. If that is so, it completely undermines the premise of clause 5 and schedule 1, which revolve around exit day. Is he seriously still considering moving these clauses...

Leaving the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (28 Nov 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ...Scotland and the Secretary of State for Existing the European Union gave evidence—to the Scottish Affairs Committee and the Exiting the European Union Committee respectively—that assessments of Brexit’s impact on the Scottish economy existed and would be shared with the Scottish Government. Will the Minister confirm that those unedited documents will now be shared without further delay?

Migration Policy and the Economy — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (29 Nov 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ...Nickell, where he said that his work had been misrepresented by those who wished to slash immigration: “The author of an influential piece of economic research frequently heralded by leading Brexiteers as evidence that immigration from the European Union undermines native British wages has stressed that the negative impact is ‘infinitesimally small’ and that his findings had been...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ...is some sort of division between the position of my Scottish Government colleagues and the SNP. I can assure those Members that that is not the case and we regularly meet the Scottish Government Brexit Minister, Mike Russell. Let me tell Conservative Members what Mr Russell told a number of Sunday newspapers yesterday. He said that these cross-party devolution amendments are...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ...them back in one box from Brussels, rest them at London and leave it to London to decide when and if Edinburgh and Cardiff ever get any sight of that power. There is a terrible irony here. Many Brexiteers went on at great length about how Brussels imposes its will on the United Kingdom, but that is actually a fundamental misunderstanding of how the European Union works. As has been...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ...together from the bottom up in a mutually agreed and negotiated regulatory framework. That is what the EU is at present. It is not what we have in the United Kingdom at present. Indeed, after Brexit, if this Bill goes through unamended, the unitary state of the United Kingdom will be even more centralised than it is at present. At the moment, the EU states decide collectively what...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ...want another independence referendum—it is called democracy —and the Scottish Parliament itself has voted that there should be another independence referendum if it is necessary because of the Brexit process. But the reason why so many of us in Scotland are interested in the notion of independence really arises from the current crisis in which the United Kingdom finds itself. I will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: UK Legal System (5 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ..., the Prime Minister’s spokesman told journalists that the Government expect the role of the European Court of Justice to remain unchanged during an implementation period of two years after the Brexit date in March 2019. Will the Minister confirm to the House that that means that it will not be possible to bring into force large parts of the EU (Withdrawal Bill), including the repeal of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: UK Legal System (5 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: Last week “Sky News” reported that the Government wish to stay in the European Aviation Safety Agency after Brexit and accept that that will mean remaining under the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice, because it is the ultimate arbiter of EASA rulings. Will the Minister now confirm that this means the Prime Minister’s red line of no ECJ jurisdiction after Brexit has been...

Report on Recent Terrorist Attacks (5 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ...to making Europe safer. Unfortunately, at the security conference in Berlin last week, Michel Barnier said that it would not be possible for the United Kingdom to remain a member of Europol after Brexit. In the light of today’s report and the unprecedented threat that we face from terrorism, if European Court of Justice jurisdiction has to be accepted in order to maintain our membership...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Leaving the EU: University Staffing (11 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: Heriot-Watt University and Edinburgh Napier University in my constituency have made staff redundant, citing Brexit and the UK Government’s immigration policies as a proximate cause. Napier University has advised me that potential staff members from other EU countries are turning down job offers. What concrete reassurance can the Minister give these international award-winning universities...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Plain English summary of retained direct EU legislation (20 Dec 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ...the problem is that leaving domestic courts free to make independent judgments on such crucial constitutional issues raises the prospect of politicising the judiciary’s institutional role in the Brexit process, resulting, potentially, in further regrettable attacks on the integrity of UK judges like those we saw earlier this year and last week. I therefore ask the Minister to address...
