Key issues for the Home Affairs Select Committee

01 July 2019 - Lunch meeting - Login for venue

The Rt Hon Yvette Cooper MP, Chair, Home Affairs Select Committee

In brilliant form, Rt Hon Yvette Cooper MP, Chair of the powerful Home Affairs Select Committee, led an Industry Forum briefing at the Bankside offices of FleishmanHillard Fishburn. With great precision, she unravelled the complexities of the Brexit negotiations, the problems of the rigid red lines, the difficult parliamentary arithmetic, and how her cross-party committee is holding the Government to account on a wide variety of related immigration issues. The discussion inevitably led to the need for consensus building on Brexit as a path to moving forward and starting to remove the Brexit uncertainty that is so damaging to business.  On a note of hope, Yvette, outlined how such a process could begin, although it would require political compromises. To a business audience this would seem the natural approach; we can only hope that such wisdom takes wider hold in Westminster.
