Air Traffic Management and Unmanned Aircraft Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 1 (21 Jan 2021)

Baroness Randerson: the time when we spoke about this last. The impact of coronavirus has undermined all branches of aviation. In addition, of course, since we last spoke we have left the transition period following Brexit, but we are still at the point where we have to adhere to international norms and regulations. We certainly support the amendments. They are designed to ensure that, when aviation...

Equitable Life (21 Jan 2021)

Christine Jardine: ...pensionable age changed feel a great deal of sympathy for the Equitable Life pensioners. There are so many in a generation who have been let down in their later years. We must not now use covid or Brexit to shield us from the problems that still exist. They have not gone away, and, if anything, those involved will now feel further away from the Government than ever before. A constituent...

Medicines and Medical Devices Bill - Third Reading: Motion (21 Jan 2021)

Baroness Thornton: ...for the expert briefs that they have given us. Stakeholder engagement will remain key for many years to come, for while the Bill will soon pass—as the Minister said—the task of creating a post-Brexit medicines and medical devices regulatory regime is far from finished. I look forward to working with stakeholders and the Minister to make sure that we move forward in the best possible...

Business of the House (21 Jan 2021)

Valerie Vaz: ...; it is a fantastic vaccination programme—17 minutes in and out, and at one stage it had the highest number of vaccinations in the country. The Government need to be straight with us; no more Brexit promises. They are like piecrust promises—easily made, easily broken. We need the scrutiny Committee of my right hon. Friend the Member for Leeds Central (Hilary Benn). We have musicians...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Food Imports and Exports (21 Jan 2021)

Daniel Zeichner: I fear the Secretary of State is living in a parallel universe. He must have seen the headlines: “Pig Heads Are Rotting In Rotterdam As Brexit Delays Hit The British Meat Industry”. Nick Allen of the British Meat Processors Association understands that these problems are not teething problems; they are structural. He warns that the meat industry’s trade with the EU is in jeopardy. Is he...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Scottish Fishing Communities: EU Trade (21 Jan 2021)

Neil Gray: ...with this £23 million insult. The industry is losing more than four times that every day. It is losing customers with it.

Scottish Parliament: Place-based Economic Development Zones (21 Jan 2021)

Ivan McKee: ...the European Union and denied all the benefits of being within the single market and the customs union. The UK Government has cited the creation of free ports as something that is made possible by Brexit—that is, a new ability following our collective, enforced departure from the EU. Its narrative ignores the inconvenient fact that free ports operated in the UK while we were in the EU,...

Scottish Parliament: Rural Economy (Impact of European Union Exit) (21 Jan 2021)

Fergus Ewing: ...are being brought to their knees, practically overnight, by a callous Tory Government that seeks to point the finger of blame at anyone and everything instead of owning responsibility for the Brexit chaos. Therefore I will now bust a few Tory myths. The Scottish Government and our partner agencies have done, and continue to do, all that we can to help businesses to prepare for such...

Scottish Parliament: Agriculture Funding Review (Discussions with United Kingdom Government) (21 Jan 2021)

Fergus Ewing: ..., Wales and Northern Ireland; it was communicated at a meeting of officials in September. It is a disgraceful decision. Michael Gove and George Eustice promised that, if we got out of the EU with Brexit, there would be no reduction in funding, and indeed there would be an increase—they promised that funding would be at least matched. That promise has been broken. The Tories have broken...

Scottish Parliament: International Tourists (VAT-free Shopping) (21 Jan 2021)

Fergus Ewing: ...UK Government on the matter. We believe that it is vital that these sectors receive the support they need to weather the difficulties they already face and the further challenges to come, thanks to Brexit, and we do not believe that this is at all an appropriate juncture at which to make such abrupt and significant changes.

Brexit (Impact on Salmon Industry)

Scottish Parliament: A75 Dualling (Progress) (21 Jan 2021)

Colin Smyth: The challenges of Brexit highlight more than ever how vital the A75 and A77 are as direct routes to the ferry port at Cairnryan. Can the cabinet secretary tell us specifically to what extent he will take into account the increased economic importance of keeping Cairnryan competitive when it comes to allocating what is likely to be—as he has made clear—a smaller budget for road infrastructure?

Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Veterans) Bill - Second Reading (20 Jan 2021)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: ...Bolsonaro as the most prominent remaining global leader of Trumpism, and is demonstrating that with his plan to reverse election promises on international aid. We also have the continuing chaos of Brexit and the tragically world-leading disaster that is our Covid-19 death rate. In summary, the UK is not starting from a great place in the international arena—a point made powerfully by the...

National Security and Investment Bill: New Clause 1 - Impact on academic research spin-off enterprises (20 Jan 2021)

Andrew Griffith: ...would plummet to the depths of the world rankings in attracting international investment. It is almost as if Opposition Members do not want the British people to taste the fruits of the successful Brexit that they tried to thwart.

UK Musicians: EU Visa Arrangements - Commons Urgent Question (20 Jan 2021)

Lord McNally: ...that have gone on on both sides of the channel about what really happened. What really happened is that the Government were inflexible in the TCA for fear of the European Research Group and other Brexit zealots anxious to protect the purity of Brexit. The Government have got to go back to the table on this. My advice to musicians would be to mobilise the millions of supporters,...

New Businesses: Capital Gains Tax - Question (20 Jan 2021)

Lord Colgrain: My Lords, I refer to my interests in the register. Does the Minister agree that, in order to foster the level of entrepreneurial investment we need after both Brexit and the pandemic, consideration should be given to increasing business asset disposal relief? Secondly, does she agree that the Government should look again at the calculation of CGT on private equity investments, where the...

Northern Ireland: Northern Ireland Protocol (20 Jan 2021)

Kirsten Oswald: ...Scottish hauliers and exporters. James Withers, chief executive of Scotland Food and Drink, has referred to “crippling” red tape. It is clear that the UK Government are simply not on top of the Brexit problems at border crossings. How will the Secretary of State resolve groupage issues and the disruption which is causing such difficulty for businesses and consumers?
