Animal Welfare (25 May 2023)

Sammy Wilson: ...forward today cannot apply in Northern Ireland because the laws in Northern Ireland are made not by this Government but by the European Union as a result of the Northern Ireland protocol and the Windsor framework, including those on the export of live animals, the import of mutilated dogs, hunting trophies imports and—if the Government decide to bring forward legislation on it—the...

Business of the House (25 May 2023)

Penny Mordaunt: ...need to understand what obligations will be placed on them by these processes and they want clarity soon. He will know that further work is ongoing on a number of fronts in the wake of the landmark Windsor framework. The next questions to the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland are not until 21 June, so I will write on the right hon. Gentleman’s behalf both to him and to the Foreign...

Food Price Rises: Impact on Low-Income Families - Question (25 May 2023)

Lord Dodds of Duncairn: ...any assessment of the impact on the food industry, and therefore the impact on prices for consumers, of the new labelling requirements, which appear to be quite onerous and are required under the Windsor Framework? The Government are now saying that these will apply not just to goods going to Northern Ireland but right across the United Kingdom. Severe concerns have been raised about the...

Attorney General: Lord Chancellor and Law Officers (25 May 2023)

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 6 (24 May 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: ...the child will not satisfy the conditions in Clause 2, but I will write to her with a more detailed explanation. The noble Baroness, Lady Ludford, asked about compatibility with article 2 of the Windsor Framework. There is a later amendment to which she has added her name, Amendment 137, on this very issue. We will come on to that later in the Committee. As I indicated at the start, this...

G7 Summit - Statement (24 May 2023)

Lord True: ...on the CPTPP, a trade deal with the world’s fastest-growing region. We have signed critical minerals partnerships with Canada and Australia, and a semiconductor partnership with Japan.

That is a huge...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (24 May 2023)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: ...of this and do it properly. That is the main thing we need to focus on. I know that some people were worried about whether we are in this position because of some underlying reason to do with the Windsor framework. Again, the Minister and the Secretary of State have given us an excellent explanation from the Dispatch Box as to why that is absolutely not the case. As we have heard, the Bill...

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (24 May 2023)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: ...where is it? Relevant here too is the position of the devolved nations. The Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission has warned that the Bill could contravene the Good Friday/Belfast agreement and Windsor Framework in a number of ways. Has the Minister read its critique, and will the Government be publishing a response to it? The Welsh Civil Society Forum points out that Wales’s “child...

Prime Minister: Engagements (24 May 2023)

Rishi Sunak: As the hon. Gentleman knows, when we concluded the Windsor framework, we made sure that there was an extension in the grace period for veterinary medicines to give us the time to find a long-run solution to that particular issue. He should take heart, because on human medicines, which I know are important to him and everyone else in Northern Ireland, we achieved complete and full dual...

Northern Ireland (Interim Arrangements) Bill - Committee (and remaining stages): Amendment 1 (23 May 2023)

Lord McCrea of Magherafelt and Cookstown: the sand or face reality. We have found out in recent days that burying one’s head in the sand does not do anything; therefore, you have to face reality. The Northern Ireland protocol and the Windsor Framework were forced on the Northern Ireland people without consent. We all know that the Belfast agreement was built on the very foundation of cross-community consent, but, sadly, the...

Northern Ireland (Interim Arrangements) Bill - Second Reading (18 May 2023)

Lord Caine: .... Likewise, I am happy to respond positively to the invitation from my noble friend Lord Rogan to meet the pharmacists in Northern Ireland. A number of noble Lords again raised issues with the Windsor Framework. I know that the noble Baroness, Lady Hoey, and the noble Lord, Lord Morrow, feel very strongly about this. I gently remind noble Lords that the House of Commons approved the...

Cost of Living (16 May 2023)

Patrick Grady: ...the European Research Group and the Maastricht rebels who occasionally prowl the Tory Back Benches, and it is still causing economic chaos up and down the country. The Government wave around the Windsor framework as if it is some kind of triumph, and they proclaim that Northern Ireland has the best of both worlds. By their own definition, the rest of the United Kingdom must have something...

Written Answers — Treasury: Duty Free Allowances: Northern Ireland (12 May 2023)

Baroness Penn: The Government’s duty-free policy remains unchanged after the agreement of the Windsor Framework. Northern Ireland enjoys frictionless trade with both the rest of Great Britain and Northern Ireland – the Government is committed to ensuring that remains the case. Enabling duty-free shopping between Ireland and Northern Ireland could lead to significant distortions of trade on the island...

Horizon Europe - Question (11 May 2023)

Viscount Camrose: ...we can arrive at a deal which is fair and appropriate for UK taxpayers, businesses and, of course, universities.

Illegal Migration Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (10 May 2023)

Lord Moylan: ...Rights when we so lightly pass over the fact that the rights of our own people in Northern Ireland to a say in the laws that they live under is abridged by the Northern Ireland protocol and by the Windsor Framework that has followed it. When it suits us, we are all for the European Convention on Human Rights, but we are willing to blink it when it does not. There is a degree of double...

Northern Ireland (Interim Arrangements) Bill: Clause 1 - Departmental Functions (10 May 2023)

Stella Creasy: ...issue about direct effect cases, which is where the judgment about protecting people’s pension pot comes from. The 142 areas of co-operation identified in 2017 as being underpinned by EU policy frameworks and north-south co-operation are the areas up for grabs. Indeed, there is ongoing co-operation in 61 areas. Let me give some examples of the sorts of EU laws that we would be talking...
