Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...consumers’ and workers’ protection. Some of these improvements, particularly on the environment and consumer protection, require international action—but some are there to ensure a level playing field for industry.

Grenfell Update: The Economy (22 Mar 2018)

Jim Shannon: ..., particularly in the village of Portavogie. Since we have an absentee MP for South Down, I should add that it is also important to those from Ardglass and Kilkeel.

Leaving the EU: Live Farm Animal Exports — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (26 Feb 2018)

Kerry McCarthy: food or water while they were being transported to Turkey. Also, many people here will have seen today’s story in The Times about how every year more than 5,000 calves—unweaned and discarded by the dairy industry—are sent on journeys of more than 135 hours from Scotland to Spain. That number had doubled from the previous year; I think the 5,000 figure is from 2016.

Leaving the EU: No-deal Alternatives — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (21 Feb 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: would be hugely damaging. Around 45% of UK exports of goods and 54% of UK imports of goods would become newly subject to tariffs.

Tariffs would drive up...

Lord Rooker: ...future for generations to come. The danger that Northern Ireland has been placed in is clear. There are international treaties relating to all-Ireland issues, such as food safety, animal disease, electricity supply and integrated dairy production, that Brexit cannot take account of.

RBS Global Restructuring Group and Smes (18 Jan 2018)

Jim Shannon: ...have been upheld, the moneys are still lingering somewhere other than where they should be—with the complainants. In the short time I have, I want to illustrate my point with the case of a large family dairy farm in Northern Ireland.

Brexit: Deal or No Deal (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2018)

Lord Bew: ...of Irish farmers meet, that was the subject of conversation. Is there any reference in our report to the consequences of no deal for Ireland and that obvious fear? No, there is not.

I invite your Lordships to a little thought...
