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?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued) (12 Mar 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, I do not think that anyone who has read the excellent December 2016 report Brexit: Financial Services from our EU Committee chaired by the noble Baroness, Lady Falkner, will be under any illusion about the challenge that Brexit poses to this economically crucial sector of our economy. This evening we have heard of the needs both of those in the financial sector and of those who...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (28 Feb 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ..., as laid out in the Conservative manifesto, is to use that same amount of money. The Exchequer Secretary, Robert Jenrick, promised, “to consult widely ahead of its launch”. However, he did not commit to matching ERDF funding after Brexit, so the consultation would presumably be about its use. We have been told: “The design … is currently being considered, including...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (28 Feb 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...the public sector. I am sure other noble Lords’ emails show that the rights that we are bringing over in this Bill should not be weakened. The British Medical Association, along with 12 royal colleges and unions, wrote to the Prime Minister in December calling on her to stand firm against any Brexiteers who want to scrap European laws, warning of risks to patient safety and arguing...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (26 Feb 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, as we have heard, these amendments relating to reciprocal issues are key to continuing to protect and assist British citizens after Brexit, including children and protected persons, in ways that hitherto our EU membership and cross-border agreements have provided. In particular these are the European arrest warrant, the mutual recognition of family court judgments, information...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (26 Feb 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...;. We also had a welcome reminder from my noble friend Lord Adonis of the Prime Minister’s earlier, pre-referendum speech on the same issue. In Munich, she went on to outline her desire for an ambitious post-Brexit EU security relationship, talking about a security treaty as part of the “deep and special partnership” with the EU that she wants to see. However, as we have...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (21 Feb 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...date at Committee stage, when that was never foreseen in the original Bill? Was it for some good legislative reason, or was it, as my noble friend Lord Hain suggested, to satisfy a certain hard Brexit group of MPs sitting on the Prime Minister’s shoulder, rather like the 60 who have been writing her helpful letters today? It certainly looks as if this was more to do with party...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (21 Feb 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...as we have just been reminded, she sent out her little chicks, and, indeed, a Fox, to make speeches far and wide—in fact, almost everywhere other than in Parliament—on their competing visions of what that post-Brexit future will look like. They are mostly doing that without a proper dialogue with consumers, with trade unions, with industry or with farmers. I will not have been...

Brexit: EU Customs Union - Question (7 Feb 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...from the relationship with the EU. It said quite bluntly that those who are elected to govern now have to make a choice—it is make your mind up time. Will the Minister send a little memo to the Brexit sub-committee which is meeting today to urge it, for the sake of the country’s economy and not just for party unity, to look at jobs first and decide that whatever is best to get...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (31 Jan 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, this has been the most extraordinary debate, has it not? We have heard from former judges, Permanent Secretaries, EU Commissioners, MEPs, Cabinet and Brexit Ministers, and former Speakers, Leaders and Chief Whips of your Lordships’ House. We have heard from former ambassadors, negotiators, Attorneys-General, high commissioners and governors, party leaders, Chiefs of Defence,...
