European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments (18 Jun 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...May would consider how to capture those demands and table the necessary amendment here in your Lordships’ House today. Instead, in the Government’s Motion F1, we have no proposal for a vote on the Brexit deal but simply a vote on a Motion—in neutral terms, I understand from my parliamentary draftsmen advisers that this is not a term that exists anywhere else in law, but...

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Report (12 Jun 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...complex, as he said in Committee, because you only know if a case is perceived to be complex if a lawyer has told you that, and you will not have a lawyer at that point. These cases are where the consumer—in case the Minister wonders why I am here, it is because I am in my consumer role, rather than my Brexit role; he might have thought there was a European aspect—is always the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Third Reading (16 May 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...thought to threaten to chop off our heads for carrying out our statutory, lawful duty to send back to the Commons those parts of the Bill we find deficient to meet the purpose of the proposed Act. We have even heard prominent Brexiteers in the Commons accuse the Lords of being “drunk with their own prejudices” or “traitors in ermine”. Even today the noble Lord, Lord...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Third Reading (16 May 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...legislatures, as we heard, obviously. We know that this House regrets that absence. There is no doubt that we are partly in this position because of the failure of the Government to start their Brexit process by engaging with the devolved authorities. Indeed, there was some six months when the JMC did not even meet, even after the outcry over the initial Clause 11, which had been tabled...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (6th Day) (8 May 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...off the table. Her red lines, which closed down the possible positive and constructive development of a new partnership with the EU, were irresponsible, short-sighted and aimed more at her hard Brexiteers than at the interests of every part of the UK. Whether one is thinking about Ireland, Scotland, the regions, Welsh farming, manufacturing, the City, aerospace, automobiles or any other...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (6th Day) (8 May 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...the benefits of our EEA membership —perhaps even continuing our membership—while forming a customs union with that massive market just off our shores. We have been clear throughout that any Brexit deal must deliver a strong new relationship with the single market that ensures full tariff-free access, no new impediments to trade and no drop in rights and protections. No doubt...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (6th Day) (8 May 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...best possible deal, setting out exactly how we leave and exactly what our future terms of trade will be. If the amendment is passed, it will remove the straitjacket that the Government inserted at the behest not of the negotiators but of certain ardent Brexiteers. Let us remove that straitjacket, make the task easier for the negotiators and reflect what our own EU Committee said:...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (6th Day) (8 May 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...Lord Griffiths—who has now left the Chamber. I said, “I have to have a biblical quote”, but I am afraid he has a sense of humour and said, “The people who were wandering aimlessly in the pre-Brexit wilderness were soon squabbling among themselves, ignoring the advice of their leader”, and so on. But I will leave my noble friend’s helpful comments for...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (5th Day) (2 May 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...at the time of the Article 50 Bill, but we had an amendment at that stage that would have required the Government to set out the relationship with the devolved authorities, particularly over Brexit, obviously. We included at that stage formalising the Joint Ministerial Committee and I think it remains a good idea. At Second Reading, or certainly since, we raised the issue in the context of...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (4th Day) (30 Apr 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...a nursery teacher controlling unruly youngsters. That behaviour rolls on. On the one side, she is under huge pressure from within her Cabinet to abandon even consideration of a customs partnership, with, we read, senior Brexiteers “preparing for a showdown” at this week’s Brexit sub-committee. Incidentally, the showdown is in part led by Liam Fox who, in 2012, called for...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (4th Day) (30 Apr 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...at home? I see a divided country. The referendum may not have divided us, but it certainly provided evidence of that divide. London and Scotland feel quite a different nation from most of the UK on the Brexit question. Views are sharply divided—not helped by the Government, I am afraid. In June 2016, one might have expected a Prime Minister to reach out to the whole nation, including...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (23 Apr 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...hour? As the noble Lord, Lord Wigley, says, time is running out. We need some answers to that. The amendment would ensure that the Government prioritised these issues over their concern with hard Brexiteers, who seem willing for the country to pay any price, even dropping out of the EAW, simply so that they can say, “Yeah, we’re shot of them”. That is a price that is too...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (1st Day) (18 Apr 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...Latin comes to mind. However, I express our apologies, because clearly the same arguments apply here to human rights as they do to the other rights: the things that we are bringing over and transposing on Brexit date should not then be vulnerable to subsequent change by secondary legislation. That is clearly as true in the field of human rights as for the other rights we have mentioned. In...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (1st Day) (18 Apr 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I am so delighted that I gave way to the noble Lord, Lord Forsyth, because he has exposed that it is not the Labour Party, nor is it this House, spreading disarray over Brexit: the Government are doing that quite well by themselves in the other House. We are saying that the Bill is a part of what started with Article 50: looking at how we leave the European Union. As we know, a part of what...

Brexit: British Citizens - Question (29 Mar 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I am glad the Minister agrees with the Labour Party. Will he also agree that the six tests that we have set should be met? This must be a Brexit for jobs, for people, for all regions of the country and for all parts of the country. That is what we want the Government to seek. Will he agree to meet those tests?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (11th Day) (Continued) (28 Mar 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ..., Erasmus or the medical or other agencies, everything we do should help to preserve the free movement across the continent which youngsters in particular have come to expect. I think that we would like to see, if I may use the phrase, a continental Brexit, and I hope that Ministers will press for it so that people will be kept at the centre of all the negotiations, which will help them to...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (10th Day) (26 Mar 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...to the Bill its original flexibility over exit day—are not about overturning the decision to leave. They are about removing the straitjacket the Government inserted at the behest of some ardent Brexiteers more anxious to earn their spurs than help the Government in their delicate negotiations. Importantly, the amendments enable the Bill to fulfil the task set for it: to provide a...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (9th Day) (Continued) (21 Mar 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...may regret that it took a little time but we seem to have got there. Perhaps one of the issues was that the Joint Ministerial Committee has not worked in the way we might have expected in the past. Brexit showed that up in a sense, but this is bigger than a Brexit issue. Therefore, any changes to the status of that body are probably not for this Bill to deal with. However, I hope that at...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (8th Day) (19 Mar 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...is, I know that various bodies, such as R3 or the City of London Law Society, who feel that the Government are not taking this seriously enough, have met with the IS and feel that they are not getting traction in the Brexit negotiations. Hence, I would argue the need for a political meeting. My ask today is a very easy one: will the Government agree to meet me and representatives from the...

Brexit: Fashion Industry - Question (15 Mar 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...courts in other countries. We also need the models and others to be able to move across borders so that they can perform or show their wares. Will the Minister give some assurance that, in the discussions on Brexit and the ability to move for work, this will be uppermost in their minds?
