European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Commons Reasons (13 Mar 2017)

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. This House by a majority of 102 asked the Commons to do two very easy things. It asked for both pragmatic and ethical reasons. One thing was to make it clear that EU citizens, whether...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Report (Continued) (7 Mar 2017)

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,...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (1 Mar 2017)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, Amendment 21 would underpin the involvement of devolved Administrations in the Brexit process. It would both formalise and strengthen the arrangements that the Government have already put in place through the Joint Ministerial Committee, whose terms of reference commit the Government to seek to reach consensus on their negotiating position with the devolved Administrations. The...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (1 Mar 2017)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...be clear that this view, decoupling their future from that of UK residents abroad, is supported by organisations representing British citizens in the EU which support the guarantee of such rights before the start of Brexit negotiations. Their statement on 20 February called on the Prime Minister unilaterally to guarantee rights of EU nationals in Britain. They say that it is,...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Consumers: Protection (1 Mar 2017)

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Feb 2017)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...noble Lord, Lord Carlile, the EU changed the pattern of history, replacing centuries of war by peace. This should remain uppermost in the Prime Minister’s mind as she negotiates our exit. Getting a good deal will be a tall order for this Government, whose leader never favoured Brexit. 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...

UK Withdrawal from the EU and Potential Withdrawal from the Single Market - Motion to Take Note (26 Jan 2017)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...so as not to need social assistance, and to have health cover. Then, after five years, there is the right to permanent residence. Those who have been here less than five years may have no right to stay post Brexit under the existing rules, but they are also unsure what criteria they would need to meet to prove that they had been here. It would be quite a challenge for the Government, as...

The Process for Triggering Article 50 - Statement (24 Jan 2017)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I thank the Minister for repeating the Statement. I thank also the Supreme Court judges for doing their constitutional job: as they made clear, not commenting on the wisdom or timing of Brexit, but on how UK law—our law—requires the Government to act. So here we have it. The Government failed to make the referendum binding, leaving it advisory, which helped to fuel the uncertainty...

Brexit: Green Paper - Question (9 Jan 2017)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...the House. The first is perhaps that he will no longer do what some of his colleagues do. The Secretary of State, Liz Truss, refused to appear before the Joint Committee on Human Rights looking at Brexit, a refusal that the committee described as unacceptable. I hope that the Minister will come to the House with not just the final vote that will happen when Article 50 is triggered, but the...

Brexit: Constitutional Reform and Governance Act 2010 - Question (13 Dec 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, the report that has come out today from one of our committees, Brexit: The Options for Trade, says that a clear game plan is needed on trade and that it is unlikely that a bespoke EU trade agreement can be agreed within the two-year period, so a transitional deal will be vital. Could the Minister confirm that the transitional deal, as well as the final one, will be put before both...

Brexit: Consumer Rights Policy - Question (12 Dec 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...others we have because we are part of a consumer alert system for faulty or dangerous goods. So may I ask the Minister to agree to undertake an audit of EU consumer protections that are at risk after Brexit, and also to meet relevant consumer organisations to see how to reduce the risk of losing those protections?

Brexit: UK-EU Relationship - Motion to Take Note (1 Dec 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...on Europe. The City of London, the CBI, economists, industrialists, investors, consumer groups and trade unions all fear that the Government, whether by default or by intention, are heading for a hard Brexit, with the UK removed from the single market and even the customs union, and detached from common regulations and minimum standards. Labour’s preference would be for a Brexit that...

United Kingdom: Single Market - Question (15 Nov 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: Is it not the truth that the Government were so ill prepared for Brexit that the reason they are not revealing their hand is that they do not know what their hand is? They seem to have three hands, with three different Ministers not in agreement and one of them even failing to meet the 27 fellow members of the European Union, whose support we will need in our negotiations. Therefore my...

Brexit: Article 50 - Statement (7 Nov 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...out that, constitutionally, the Government, “does not have power under the Crown’s prerogative to give notice pursuant to Article 50 … for the United Kingdom to withdraw from the European Union”.
