Brexit: Financial Settlement - Question (12 Oct 2017)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...year, the Government used the slightly weasel words that they were sympathetic to any reform but that it should only be part of a broader review.

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...decision of the Commons on the rights of EU nationals living here. Many of them, of course, are married to Brits and have British-born children but possibly will have no right to remain after Brexit day.

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...? It is pretty simple: the Government come back to Parliament. Stranger still than that is the briefing coming out of No. 10, with advisers arguing that giving legislators the power to veto the final Brexit deal and send the Premier back to the negotiating table would undermine her and limit the possibility of a good deal and, indeed, might even push the EU into giving a bad Brexit deal,...

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...noble Lord, Lord Carlile, the EU changed the pattern of history, replacing centuries of war by peace.

As my noble friend Lord McKenzie and the noble Lord, Lord Owen, said, she inherited no contingency...

Competition and Markets Authority - Question for Short Debate (8 Feb 2017)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...Minister for giving up his dinner to be here to answer what is clearly not the top question on everyone’s lips. That is a shame because consumers matter and are being short-changed, both in the Brexit talks—their interests do not even get a mention in the 12 principles in the White Paper—and, as I will argue, in the work of the CMA. Yet, as the Question before us sets...

So here we have it. The Government failed to make the referendum binding, leaving it advisory, which helped to fuel the uncertainty...
