Brexit - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: ...has made clear on many occasions, nor will our NHS be on the table in those negotiations. The political declaration also provides for a security relationship that will enable the UK and the EU jointly to combat the shared threats faced by our citizens, domestically and abroad. This revised deal further makes it clear that participation in defence co-operation will always be the sovereign...

Prime Minister’s Statement: European Union (Withdrawal) Acts (19 Oct 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I have always set out wanting to agree a deal with the EU that delivers the outcome of the referendum within the terms of the 2017 manifesto that I stood on. I have fought against an undemocratic no deal and always voted for a deal. In fact, I have voted for a deal more times than the Prime Minister. I have even voted for a deal more times than the Home Secretary, the Foreign Secretary, the...

Prime Minister’s Statement (19 Oct 2019)

Boris Johnson: ...wrong about environmental and social protection. This Government and this country will maintain the very highest standards, and we will lead in environmental protection and social protection across Europe and the world. We lead, for instance, in our commitment to be carbon neutral by 2050, and as I have told him many times, Brexit gives us the freedom and the opportunity to do things that...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (17 Oct 2019)

Lord Razzall: ...most likely cause is lack of investment. It is no surprise that the Institute for Fiscal Studies says that business investment is 15% to 20% lower today than if Britain had voted to remain in the European Union. The second issue is growth. Noble Lords will not be surprised to hear me repeat from these Benches that all independent forecasters predict that the UK growth rate will be...

Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Oct 2019)

Mark Pawsey: follow the hon. Member for Penistone and Stocksbridge (Angela Smith). I welcome many things within the Queen’s Speech, but particularly the theme of preparing the country for life outside the EU. My constituents in Rugby and Bulkington will be delighted by the progress made today, which means that they can see the light at the end of the tunnel in the negotiations with the EU. That...

Business of the House (Saturday 19 October) (17 Oct 2019)

Pete Wishart: ...this matter on Saturday, it is worth noting that Scotland wanted absolutely nothing to do with this chaotic Brexit project. We returned one Member of Parliament with a mandate to deliver on the EU referendum—one Member of Parliament. Every single one of Scotland’s Members of Parliament bar one voted against the EU referendum Bill. Every single Member of Parliament from Scotland bar one...

Business of the House (17 Oct 2019)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I am glad to say that the supremacy of EU law was one of the things rejected in the referendum, and it will fade away. As the morning mist fades, so will the supremacy of that appalling Court.

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Brexit (17 Oct 2019)

James Duddridge: The cross-party talks on the UK’s exit from the EU were undertaken by the previous administration. These talks explored aspects of the Withdrawal Agreement and the Political Declaration and sought to reach a compromise, but at the time, this was unsuccessful. The then Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office, the Rt hon member for Aylesbury, and the hon...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (16 Oct 2019)

Lord Callanan: What Denmark and other countries do is of course a matter for them. It seems to be a habit in the EU that, if referendums do not produce the results that the proponents wish, people need to vote again until they give the right answer.

Debate on the Address: Public Services (16 Oct 2019)

Richard Drax: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Oldham East and Saddleworth (Debbie Abrahams). My only point on the second referendum she is calling for is that I am not quite sure anyone in this country would believe that that would be honoured either, bearing in mind that the first has not been honoured for three and a half years. I welcome the Queen’s Speech; it contains a raft of...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (15 Oct 2019)

Lord Ricketts: ...where there is a degree of confidence and mutual trust between the negotiating parties, and the gracious Speech does indeed declare at the outset the ambition for, “a new partnership with the European Union, based on … friendly co-operation”. That is excellent—but I fail to understand how it is compatible with the behaviour of the Government in their first two months. All the...

Speaker’S Statement: Britain's Place in the World (15 Oct 2019)

Tom Brake: May I say to the hon. Member for St Albans (Mrs Main) that, when she reflects on the referendum, she may want to reflect on why the 3.5 million people who will be most affected by that referendum were not actually allowed to take part in it and whether the will of the people therefore reflected the full will of the people in the country? A debate on the place of Britain in the world cannot...

Britain’S Place in the World (15 Oct 2019)

Tim Farron: May I point out that I stood on a manifesto promising to fight for a second referendum, a referendum on the deal, so that the people could have the final say on whatever is stitched up in the vape-filled rooms in Brussels and London? May I also point out that in the Lake District, where we have a marvellous export—our tourism industry—one in three of the staff on whom we rely are from...

Imprisonment of Catalan Leaders (15 Oct 2019)

Hywel Williams: ...the cases brought before the Spanish Supreme Court against 12 Catalan political and civic leaders on charges of sedition, the embezzlement of public funds and disobedience in relation to the 2017 referendum on Catalan independence. I wish to make it entirely clear that my question today is about what happened yesterday and that it is not about whether independence is right or wrong. Nine...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (14 Oct 2019)

Andrew Bowie: ...certainty and stability in our country and in our economy. I concluded that evening by making this plea: “What...this country” does “not need is further uncertainty in the shape of another referendum on Europe or another general election, and they certainly do not need another referendum on Scottish independence.”—[Official Report, 26 June 2017; Vol. 626, c. 403.] As I said, so...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (1st Day): Motion to Adjourn (14 Oct 2019)

Lord Newby: reputation has plummeted. I have just returned from Australia, a country which the Government would have us believe will provide us with new trade and prosperity were we to leave the EU. Yet even the least sophisticated taxi driver in Sydney sees what is happening here, shakes his head in disbelief and thinks we have gone mad. Today’s speech is unique in that it has been...

Scottish Parliament: European Union (Future Relationship) (9 Oct 2019)

Michael Russell: The Scottish Government has long argued for Scotland to have its own arrangements for Brexit, recognising that the vote in the referendum here was comprehensively against leaving the EU. As far back as December 2016, we set out in “Scotland’s Place in Europe” comprehensive proposals to achieve that, including the powers that should be transferred to this Parliament to enable us to...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Citizens (Assistance to Stay) (9 Oct 2019)

Graeme Dey: I know that Jenny Gilruth has sought to provide peace of mind for her EU national constituents, as far as that is possible, by holding her own advice event and I commend her for that. I know that a number of members around the chamber have done something similar. The UK Government should be providing certainty on this issue; it could disapply the requirement for five years’ residence and...

Brexit: Preparations - Statement (8 Oct 2019)

Baroness Smith of Newnham: My Lords, the Statement addresses the danger of dishonouring the referendum result, suggesting that 17.4 million people voted to end vast financial contributions to the EU and instead invest in people’s priorities, such as the NHS—I seem to remember that being on the side of a bus—and our brave police service. Fine, those investments would be great, but in light of the IFS’s...

Preparations for Leaving the EU (8 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: I am grateful to the shadow Brexit Secretary for his questions. First, he asked where the Prime Minister was. The Prime Minister is talking to our EU partners, attempting to secure a good deal, and he is doing so with the full-hearted support of everyone on the Government Benches. The question that many people will be asking outside the House is why, if the right hon. and learned Member for...
