European Union (Future Relationship) Bill (30 Dec 2020)

Ian Blackford: Thank you, Mr Speaker. It is a pleasure to follow the former Prime Minister, the right hon. Member for Maidenhead (Mrs May). I wish you, Mr Speaker, all staff and Members a good new year when it comes tomorrow evening. May I quickly reflect on the sadness of the events that took place on 2 January 1971 in Glasgow, when 66 predominantly young people lost their lives in the Ibrox disaster,...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 11 - Modifications in connection with the Northern Ireland Protocol (21 Sep 2020)

Gavin Robinson: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Stone (Sir William Cash), who has that classic flair of oratory, as when he said that some Members may be somewhat bothered to some degree. Whether we agree or disagree with him, he raises a smile through the Chamber. I rise to speak in support of the amendments tabled by my party. Before I do, I want to reflect on the comments from the right...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Relief from CGT for loans to traders (9 Jun 2020)

Wes Streeting: ...clause is designed to align the UK with EU trade regulations and EU laws, which reveals an uncomfortable reality at the heart of the Government’s strategy: no matter how much they might claim that Brexit means Brexit and that we can shirk our obligations, we know that the continuing harmonisation of laws and rules will continue within the European Union, and that, over the course of our...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (20 Jan 2020)

Mike Nesbitt: ...at Great Britain’s ports and airports". We remain the region of the United Kingdom most affected by Brexit, and we remain the least prepared. The longer it goes on, the more Theresa May's famous "Brexit means Brexit" quote is as meaningless as lunch means lunch, but it seems that, for Northern Ireland, lunch increasingly looks like a ham and cheese sandwich from the local gas station;...

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill - Second Reading (30 Oct 2019)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: The noble Lord tempts me, and I have to say I would argue that case. Whether my party would fully accept everything I want in the manifesto is another matter, but I would certainly argue for it, because what is happening at the moment is that every time the Fixed-term Parliaments Act becomes inconvenient, the Government and their supporters could bring forward a Bill such as this in order to...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (15 Oct 2019)

Lord Taverne: I quite agree. I have great admiration for the noble Viscount as a scientist; he has written some excellent books about science. The evidence produced by the IFS and many others—that the future we face from a no-deal Brexit would be disastrous and that, in any event, Brexit means we would be much poorer—is dismissed by Brexiteers because any evidence that contradicts their beliefs is...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (2 Oct 2019)

Lord Dykes: My Lords, I very much thank the noble Lord, Lord Taverne, for his remarks. I agree with every single comment he made. We thank him. I also thank the noble Lord, Lord Saatchi. I think he is the only person I have ever seen getting up late in a debate—I have never seen it before. I forgive him because he made a very amusing speech. I am also thankful for the speeches by the noble Lords, Lord...

Business of the House: Principles of Democracy and the Rights of the Electorate (26 Sep 2019)

Helen Hayes: In Dulwich and West Norwood, 77% of people voted to remain in the EU—the seventh highest pro-remain vote in the country. My constituents are not remoaners; they are not anti-democratic. They are citizens with deeply held and sincere convictions. Yet since June 2016, 77% of my constituents and 48% of voters across the country have been told that we must be quiet and that our views no longer...

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

Graham Simpson: ...very let down by Mr Cameron when he resigned as Prime Minister. He should have swallowed his pride and got on with the job, which he was good at. Theresa May, who also wanted to remain, told us that Brexit means Brexit, but, of course, it did not, once we caved in and took the option of no deal off the table. Why would anyone take seriously in a negotiation someone who was not prepared to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Apr 2019)

Sir David Amess: With party loyalties being severely tested, is my right hon. Friend aware that, as the country and the world ponder whether Brexit means Brexit and whether we will make a success of it, Southend-on-Sea has been welcoming ambassadors from all over the world to work in partnership and on investment, looking at our pier and building a new marina? Will she consider bringing forward a meaningful...

Leaving the European Union — [James Gray in the Chair] (1 Apr 2019)

Helen Hayes: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray. The Brexit negotiations over the past two years have culminated in a constitutional crisis and the inability of our Government to resolve the single biggest issue that our country has faced in a generation. Our Prime Minister has refused to take any responsibility for her role in that crisis, yet it is she who has led us to the...

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

Ian Blackford: It is disappointing that, as I stand to speak on behalf of the Scottish National party and the Scottish Government, the Prime Minister has already walked out of the Chamber. I regret that that is the response we get from her, and it is all too common. On the day that the Prime Minister told us the UK would leave the European Union with a deal, she has come to Parliament defeated and...

Scottish Parliament: Revoking Article 50 (27 Mar 2019)

Neil Findlay: He says, “Vote for the deal,” but his own side will not vote for it. We have a Prime Minister in name only, and one who is alone and whose credibility is in tatters. She is the worst holder of that political office since the previous holder of that political office. She is losing vote after vote, minister after minister and every shred of credibility that she ever had, making the UK a...

Business of the House (21 Mar 2019)

Valerie Vaz: ...House, Mansion House, Florence and Berlin. Each time we begged the Prime Minister for clarity on the negotiations, and each time she said nothing—“I don’t want to give a running commentary; Brexit means Brexit”. She should have given us broad heads of agreement right at the start, so that she could understand what Parliament wanted. The Chequers agreement was put to the Cabinet in...

Leaving the European Union — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (11 Mar 2019)

Jenny Chapman: It is good to see you in the Chair, Ms McDonagh. The hon. Member for Glasgow East (David Linden) talked about soundbites. We have heard, “Brexit means Brexit,” “No deal is better than a bad deal,” and—my personal favourite—“Red, white and blue Brexit”. I remember when soundbites were good—I know you do too, Ms McDonagh. I remember, “Tough on crime, tough on the causes of...

Further Developments in Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (11 Mar 2019)

Lord Dobbs: I am grateful for that point. The barons of Runnymede insisted that we live under the rule of law, which is what we are talking about here, right now. The barons of Runnymede said that there must be change and, over 800 years, there has been a huge amount of change. It has taken a few beheadings of noble Lords, I would submit, but we have got where we are and been admired for the...

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

Patrick Harvie: Once upon a time, not so very long ago, we might have thought that the implausible claims of the Brexiteers just sounded like nonsense being spouted by desperate campaigners who did not think that they had a hope of winning, and who were making promises to which they were confident that they would never be held. When Liam Fox said, “Well, believe me, we’ll have up to 40” trade deals...

Road Vehicles and Non-Road Mobile Machinery (Type-Approval) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (20 Feb 2019)

Lord Dykes: That is the reality that is now hitting members of public—and not just the press in article after article, comment after comment—as people interviewed say that they were not given sufficient warning. On the detailed policies, this might seem to be a minor matter, and in one way it is, but it is of great importance to the environment and to the health of the motor vehicle industry in this...

Business of the House: Points of Order (14 Feb 2019)

Bernard Jenkin: Brexit means Brexit.

EU Withdrawal - Motion to Take Note (13 Feb 2019)

Lord Dykes: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Saatchi, is well known for providing some very interesting ideas. We thank him for many of his suggestions. I am glad that he comes to the same conclusion as I think most Members of this House will do in this debate, have done in previous debates on this subject and will continue to do in the future. Fortunately and agreeably for this House, it is only a...
