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...

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...

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...

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?

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...

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: ...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....

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: 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...

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

Joanna Cherry: ...cannot go into print to defend themselves when criticised. We must provide the courts with a specific legal test on the face of the Bill governing the treatment of Court of Justice case law after Brexit, and that is what my amendment 137 seeks to achieve.

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

Joanna Cherry: ...decisions of the Court of Justice, so paying “due regard” to taking account of such decisions is not a phrase unknown. This amendment is not a Trojan horse designed to continue references after Brexit, and I say that as someone who does not want Brexit to happen. It is designed to create certainty for individuals, businesses and litigants, and also for the judiciary. It would leave it...

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

Joanna Cherry: ...my point, then I will give way to the hon. Gentleman. The Institute for Government took the view that that approach was compatible with the objectives set out in the Government’s White Paper on Brexit and in the repeal Bill.

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

Joanna Cherry: ...the Bill. My amendment seeks to address that issue. Finally, and perhaps most importantly for our constituents, the amendment will encourage UK rights protections to keep pace with EU rights after Brexit. Amendment 202 is also about giving certainty to individuals and businesses with cases pending before the domestic courts on exit day. I listened carefully to what the right hon. Member...

Taxation: Beer and Pubs — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (31 Oct 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ..., as well as measures to encourage exports. Beer is in the top three British food and drink exports, and, like all parts of the British food and drink industry, brewers fear the consequences of Brexit and require more reassurance on that front.
