Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Carolyn Harris: ...they have worked very hard over many years. What about women born in the 1950s who have left this country to live in other parts of Europe? They are not only concerned about how their lives will pan out after Brexit; they are currently feeling extremely vulnerable and, to be honest, left out in the cold when it comes to their pension. Those women do not have an MP to voice their concerns,...

Exiting the European Union: Support for Farmers (14 Dec 2017)

Wendy Morton: I recently met local farmers in my constituency and representatives from the National Farmers Union, and understandably, Brexit was one of the things we discussed. Will my hon.

Exiting the European Union: Economic Effects: Customs Union (14 Dec 2017)

Joan Ryan: ...he was in front of the Select Committee, the Secretary of State admitted that the Government had undertaken no quantitative assessment. Why is it that every time we ask a question in relation to Brexit, we get a different answer depending on the time, the day, or the Minister? If the Government simply cannot, or will not, say whether leaving the customs union will make Britain poorer, does...

Exiting the European Union: EU Tangible Assets: UK Share (14 Dec 2017)

Paul Flynn: ...else, and was a choice between Operation Fear and Operation Lies, is it not appropriate that we listen to all those independent bodies that have looked at the prospects and decided that no Brexit would be better than any Brexit? Is it not time to think about a second, well-informed confirmation referendum?

Exiting the European Union: Aviation Sector (14 Dec 2017)

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: International treaties and agreements (13 Dec 2017)

Hannah Bardell: The House has heard many technical and legalistic arguments focused on the economic, trade and legal impacts of our leaving the EU, but so far in the Brexit process and debate, the interests of children and their rights have been barely mentioned. That said, I was pleased to hear the point made by my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow Central (Alison Thewliss) about baby milk and the related...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Angus MacNeil: Brexit has had many titles, but in my view it is fast becoming the Laurel and Hardy Brexit, because it is one never-ending fine mess—a multifaceted fine mess, indeed. My hon. Friend the Member for Inverclyde (Ronnie Cowan) keeps a running total on how time is passing. It is 530 days since the Brexit vote, when apparently all the voters knew what they were voting for, yet we are still...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Economy (13 Dec 2017)

Anna McMorrin: The fact that this imperialist UK Government have excluded the Welsh Government from Brexit is putting at risk the devolution that has lasted for 20 years.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: Negotiations (13 Dec 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Following weeks of chaos, the Government have realised that their original Brexit promises were the stuff of fantasy. They conceded on continuous regulatory alignment with Europe but, hand in hand with Labour, the Westminster Tory Government remain ideologically committed to severing Wales’s membership of the single market and the customs union. Will the Secretary of State tell us how...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Dec 2017)

We all know that the transition phase will, in essence, be a carbon copy of the status quo minus our representation in the EU...

King’S College Hospital Foundation Trust (12 Dec 2017)
