European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill — Interpretation — 8 Jan 2020 at 19:00
“protect and enhance workers’ rights as the UK leaves the EU”.
“best place in the world to work.”
“burdens of the EU social and employment legislation”.
“The weight of employment regulation is now back-breaking: the collective redundancies directive, the atypical workers directive, the working time directive and a thousand more”.
“the UK has arrested more than 12,000 individuals, and for every person arrested on an EAW issued by the UK, the UK arrests eight on EAWs issued by other Member States”.
“Existing extradition arrangements between the EU and third countries do not provide the same level of capability as the EAW.”
“work collaboratively to…seek to agree a UK approach to, and objectives for, Article 50 negotiations; and provide oversight of negotiations with the EU, to ensure, as far as possible, that outcomes agreed by all four governments are secured from these negotiations”.
“at no point have the views of the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government or Northern Irish representatives been addressed”
“It is clear from the evidence to this inquiry that Whitehall still operates extensively on the basis of a structure and culture which take little account of the realities of devolution in the UK. This is inimical to the principles of devolution and good governance in UK.”
“It’s important for Ministers to recognise that access to EU funding only plays a part and is certainly not the full sum of UK scientists’ concerns. Science is indeed Humboldt’s “country without borders”; in 2018, over half of all scientific research papers published from the UK acknowledged international collaboration through author addresses, and well over 30% of all publications involved one or more EU countries.”
“we have a long way to go…We need more concrete plans, more ambition from more countries and more businesses. We need all financial institutions, public and private, to choose, once and for all, the green economy.”
“the environment…food safety and other standards…the substance of REACH regulations; and…animal welfare.”
“a total opt-out from the working time directive”.
“costly anti-jobs legislation cannot cause further damage to the economy”.
“we will legislate to ensure high standards of workers’ rights, environmental protection and consumer rights.”
