Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (No Deal) (5 Sep 2019)

Neil Findlay: ...and irresponsible no-deal agenda. It will not be Rees-Mogg who will lose his business because of Brexit uncertainty—he has already relocated it to Dublin. Boris Johnson is not a Honda worker in Swindon who will lose his job because of this shambles. Gove is not a small food producer who has no idea how he will manage to export his produce in a few weeks if Britain leaves the EU without a...

Baroness Randerson: ...on airports means vast costs to our economy. The automotive industry is already suffering badly.

May I join many across the House in welcoming my hon. and learned Friend the Member for South Swindon (Robert Buckland)?

The green industrial revolution will unwind those injustices, harness manufacturing to avert climate breakdown, and provide well-paid, good-skilled and secure jobs.

The sector needs immediate and substantial...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Withdrawal Negotiations (5 Mar 2019)

James Kelly: ...down the clock in the hope that, as we get nearer to 29 March, people will vote for her deal. All around us is evidence of the implications of Brexit and of a no deal. In the car industry, Honda in Swindon is closing down with the loss of 3,500 jobs, and Jaguar Land Rover continually warns of the threat of a no-deal Brexit. The implications for trading arrangements are important, because a...

Future Free Trade Agreements (21 Feb 2019)

Bill Esterson: ...and what arrangements will be in place. They want the Government to show that they understand diplomacy, and they want them to avoid causing offence in delicate trade negotiations. This week, in Swindon, we have seen what is happening in the real world: real workers’ jobs going—3,500 of them—and real communities affected. We are party to a trade agreement with Japan through our...

Lord Adonis: My Lords, the House is indebted to the noble Baroness, Lady Randerson, for doing an excellent, forensic job of exposing the issues in this statutory instrument.

It is a devastating blow to the automotive sector, to UK manufacturing in general and,...

Northern Ireland Backstop (19 Feb 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: The Solicitor General seeks to justify the problem that is Brexit by insisting that the backstop is the problem. I understand that he wants to sympathise with the manufacturing communities in Swindon, Wales and elsewhere that are waking up to job losses, but it is difficult because he is in the Government. Given the evidence, how can the Government, abetted by the Labour Front-Bench team,...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Response to European Union Exit Vote in Westminster) (19 Feb 2019)

Neil Findlay: ...her Brexit bus by reneging on the backstop. It is right to do so, because there must be no return to a hard border.
