Hello and welcome to the programme.

0:00:170:00:20

Coming up:

0:00:200:00:22

Conservative MPs demand ministers

stand up to the EU on the vexed

0:00:220:00:25

question of fishing after Brexit.

0:00:250:00:31

The Armada of trawlers who have been

hit plundering Britain cosmic

0:00:310:00:35

historic oozing ground are not going

to be happy that their best years

0:00:350:00:40

are behind them. -- Britain's

historic fishing grounds.

0:00:400:00:48

The doors to flats in

Grenfell Tower are found to have

0:00:480:00:51

failed a police fire test.

0:00:510:00:52

When tested by the Metropolitan

Police, the door failed after 15

0:00:520:00:57

minutes.

0:00:570:01:02

And a former cabinet minister

questions if a fellow peer is right

0:01:020:01:05

to play host to the founder

of a far-right group.

0:01:050:01:07

At a time when there is an increased

risk of relation to hate crimes.

0:01:070:01:11

Of the many questions

surrounding Brexit, one

0:01:110:01:12

of the main ones concerns fish.

0:01:120:01:17

Conservative MPs have been pressing

the government not to agree

0:01:170:01:19

to the EU's demand that the bloc

0:01:190:01:23

should still have the right to fish

in UK waters after Brexit,

0:01:230:01:25

in return for tariff-free access

to the European market

0:01:250:01:28

for British goods and services.

0:01:280:01:29

In its latest version

of the Brexit agreement,

0:01:290:01:33

released on Thursday,

the EU has added in "opportunities"

0:01:330:01:35

for the UK to "comment"

on fishing quotas.

0:01:350:01:37

One Conservative believed people

would unite against the idea

0:01:370:01:40

of continued access to UK waters:

0:01:400:01:42

Well, while fish largely

0:01:420:01:46

Remainers and believers are united

at the very worst aspect of our EU

0:01:460:01:50

membership is the common fisheries

policy and when we leave the

0:01:500:01:53

European Union, we leave the common

fisheries policy will stop on that

0:01:530:01:57

day, the Armada of EU trawlers that

have been plundering Britain's

0:01:570:02:03

historic fishing grounds since 1973

are not going to be happy that their

0:02:030:02:06

best years are behind them. Can we

ensure that the Royal Navy has the

0:02:060:02:12

resources it needs to protect our

sovereign waters and ensure the

0:02:120:02:16

rebirth and the renaissance of the

British fishing industry.

It was

0:02:160:02:20

disappointing to see an aggressive

line in that document about

0:02:200:02:23

maintaining access to fishing

waters. I want the department is

0:02:230:02:28

robust on the behalf of my

Northumbrian fishermen to ensure we

0:02:280:02:32

regain control of our fishing waters

afford the sighting who else

0:02:320:02:36

condition them.

It was a very odd

linkage to make as well. The simple

0:02:360:02:42

truth is that when we leave the

European Union, we will be an

0:02:420:02:45

independent coastal state. As a

result, we will control our own

0:02:450:02:49

waters. There will of course be

continuing negotiations between

0:02:490:02:58

neighbouring states because this

move about cats and quotas and the

0:02:580:03:00

rest of it.

When we leave the

European Union will my friend

0:03:000:03:05

confirm that he will not give free

and unfettered access as is demanded

0:03:050:03:12

currently by the European Union?

As

the Secretary of State and I have

0:03:120:03:20

but said, we will be leaving common

fisheries policy and take control of

0:03:200:03:24

our waters. I would just say to him

that my experience of fishermen is

0:03:240:03:26

that they do wish to have access to

European markets and I think we need

0:03:260:03:30

to approach the fisheries

negotiation in the same constructive

0:03:300:03:34

spirit as other parts of our

negotiation but yes, we will be

0:03:340:03:37

taking control of our waters.

0:03:370:03:43

While fish largely ignore

national borders, that's not

0:03:430:03:45

always the case with MPs

- especially when that border

0:03:450:03:47

is the one between Northern Ireland

and the Republic.

0:03:470:03:49

The Government's committed

to avoiding what's known as a

0:03:490:03:52

"hard border" after Brexit.

0:03:520:03:53

But some MPs questioned

whether that's really plausible.

0:03:530:03:56

Given that the Government have said

that the border will remain

0:03:560:04:02

frictionless and that there will be

no border in the Irish Sea, the

0:04:020:04:05

question many of us continue to ask

is, how can this happen?

Well,

0:04:050:04:13

government has made clear its

unwavering commitment to three

0:04:130:04:17

guiding principles in relation to

Northern Ireland and Republic.

0:04:170:04:22

First, there should be no hard

border, North and South. Belfast

0:04:220:04:25

agreement must be honoured and

thirdly that the Constitution and

0:04:250:04:30

economic integrity of the United

Kingdom remains unimpaired and the

0:04:300:04:33

Prime Minister has set out most

recently in her speech how that

0:04:330:04:35

might be achieved. And also,

building on the options set out in

0:04:350:04:41

the August position papers which

sets out practical options how we

0:04:410:04:44

might take this forward.

This is

much more than just the movement of

0:04:440:04:48

goods or services. It is about the

cultural issue. It is about the

0:04:480:04:54

movement of people. It is about all

of that any symbolism of is enormous

0:04:540:05:00

and the Minister needs to ensure

that that is recognised time after

0:05:000:05:04

time in all of the talks that she

has to reassure the people of both

0:05:040:05:07

parts of Ireland.

I don't think that

Ministers quite appreciate the level

0:05:070:05:12

of concern that there is across the

House on this issue. Whenever I

0:05:120:05:18

visited the Irish border, I've come

face-to-face with the reality of

0:05:180:05:21

what the installation of any cameras

or any infrastructure would mean him

0:05:210:05:25

and it would not last a day,

Minister. It would not last a day.

0:05:250:05:33

Why won't the Secretary of State

even visit the borders so that he

0:05:330:05:36

can appreciate why people are so

concerned?

The Secretary of State

0:05:360:05:40

has also been to the border prior to

his appointment to this position and

0:05:400:05:43

is very much apprised of the

sensitivity and importance of the

0:05:430:05:49

squiggle issue.

Mr Speaker, I think

that says all we need to hear. How?

0:05:490:05:58

How, that is what we want to know,

how can we ensure an open border

0:05:580:06:02

without a customs union?

0:06:020:06:04

The minister said there were many

proposals on the table that would be

0:06:040:06:07

viable and workable.

0:06:070:06:12

The Government has reported a new

and worrying development into the

0:06:120:06:16

investigation of the fire at

Grenfell Tower.

0:06:160:06:19

It's nine months since

the blaze claimed 71 lives.

0:06:190:06:22

The cladding and insulation

on the outside of the building have

0:06:220:06:25

already failed all preliminary

tests by the police.

0:06:250:06:28

Now investigators have found that

a flat door from the building

0:06:280:06:31

could only hold back a fire for half

the time it was supposed to.

0:06:310:06:34

Initial inspections indicated the

door is believed to have been

0:06:340:06:39

designed to resist fire for up to 30

minutes. But when tested by the

0:06:390:06:44

Metropolitan Police, failed after

approximately 15 minutes. The

0:06:440:06:50

Metropolitan Police considered that

this test result might have wider

0:06:500:06:53

implications for public safety and

alerted my department.

0:06:530:06:59

Sajid Javid had sought the advice

of an independent expert panel.

0:06:590:07:04

The expert panel has advised that

the risk to the public safety remain

0:07:040:07:07

low. There is no change to the fire

safety advice of the public should

0:07:070:07:11

follow. I, nevertheless, fully

appreciate that this news will be

0:07:110:07:15

troubling for many people, not

least, all those affected by the

0:07:150:07:20

Grenville tragedy. -- Grenfell Tower

tragedy. That is why we have begun

0:07:200:07:27

the process of conducting further

tests and will continue to consult

0:07:270:07:30

with the expert panel to identify

the implications of these further

0:07:300:07:33

test. I have made it clear that the

necessary tests and assessments must

0:07:330:07:38

he carried a thoroughly, but at

pace. There is no evidence that this

0:07:380:07:42

is a systemic issue.

If this isn't

systemic, what assessment has been

0:07:420:07:46

made of how many buildings are

potentially affected by this? How

0:07:460:07:52

many individual flats? How many

people who have fire doors that

0:07:520:07:58

simply don't do the job. What steps

is he taking to ascertain those

0:07:580:08:01

numbers if he doesn't already know

that and I suspect it is too early

0:08:010:08:06

to know that, but what steps are

being taken to make that kind of

0:08:060:08:10

dissemination? Because that's the

point at which the words that this

0:08:100:08:13

is not systemic begins to ring a

little incredible. It may be a

0:08:130:08:20

systemic problem and we've got to

begin to recognise if this is

0:08:200:08:24

widescale that we have just that

systemic problem.

0:08:240:08:28

The minister repeated

that the government

0:08:280:08:30

was being led by the experts.

0:08:300:08:33

And there advice so far and that is

exactly why I said in my statement

0:08:330:08:37

earlier that there is no evidence of

a systemic problem. That is their

0:08:370:08:40

advice so far and B are correctly

taking advice whilst we continue

0:08:400:08:44

with further tests at pace. -- we

are.

The expert panel's

0:08:440:08:51

recommendation that no change in

safety device will come as a

0:08:510:08:56

surprise to many people, so will the

Government insist that Dame Judith

0:08:560:09:00

Hackett's review into the fire

regulations assessment will make

0:09:000:09:03

sure that every high-rise building's

assessment will be published and

0:09:030:09:07

made available in an accessible form

for the public so they can perhaps

0:09:070:09:14

the reassurance from that that I

fear they won't have got from this

0:09:140:09:17

report.

As a west London near

neighbour, residents in the London

0:09:170:09:22

Borough of Ealing Tansey grand mal

-- can see Grenfell. My constituent

0:09:220:09:33

was at the silent march last night

and he said that there was massive

0:09:330:09:35

numbers and the sense of injustice

was overwhelming. The Minister has

0:09:350:09:38

repeatedly said that public safety

is paramount. What is he doing to

0:09:380:09:42

instill public confidence into the

inquiry and the actor Matt? I don't

0:09:420:09:47

take it was ever there.

0:09:470:09:51

Grenfell Tower is in

the constituency of Emma Dent Coad.

0:09:510:09:53

She'd been speaking to an architect

who'd worked on the Estate.

0:09:530:09:56

In those days, the 1970s, fire doors

were supposed to lasts for one hour.

0:09:560:10:02

We're down to 30 minutes. Can we

please consider whether or not

0:10:020:10:04

buildings of that size am a half an

hour is enough?

She asked me about

0:10:040:10:12

the fire doors and whether one hour

is correct versus half-an-hour. This

0:10:120:10:16

is exactly one of the reasons why

I've set up the independent building

0:10:160:10:19

regulation and fire safety work

being done by Dame Judith Hackett. I

0:10:190:10:24

know this is an issue she will be

looking at.

Sajid Javid.

0:10:240:10:29

You're watching Thursday

in Parliament with me, Mandy Baker.

0:10:290:10:36

The Chair of the Commons health

committee has dismissed as "dismal"

0:10:360:10:38

the explanation from NHS

digital about why it

0:10:380:10:40

shares some patient data.

0:10:410:10:46

Last year the service agreed

with the home office that doctors

0:10:460:10:49

could give details including

addresses to immigration officials.

0:10:490:10:54

But such sharing has raised fears

that some migrants will be put off

0:10:540:10:57

getting medical help.

0:10:570:10:58

The chair of the health committee

began by reminding NHS

0:10:580:11:01

digital of its remit.

0:11:010:11:04

You say, we are the guardians of

patient data and say it is only ever

0:11:040:11:07

used for the good of health and

care. I'm afraid this is not the

0:11:070:11:11

approach that you're taking and I

just wonder, do you recognise the

0:11:110:11:14

potential damage that this is doing

at a time when we want the public to

0:11:140:11:18

trust NHS Digital to be making

ethical decisions about sharing data

0:11:180:11:24

for research purposes? Is a really

crucial thing that we need to get

0:11:240:11:30

the public on board with so that

they understand why it is in

0:11:300:11:33

everyone's best interest to do that.

Still, this matter has taken an

0:11:330:11:43

entirely versus driven approach to a

serious ethical issue. We have taken

0:11:430:11:50

a law driven approach. Not an

ethical driven approach.

It was

0:11:500:11:55

consulted on very widely with a

large committee. So, a case of

0:11:550:12:04

filling inboxes. We are very, very,

very careful with how we handled

0:12:040:12:08

clinical data. I absolutely accept

you have, you know, a concern about

0:12:080:12:16

where the address data is in terms

of the confidentiality treatment of

0:12:160:12:19

it. We have looked to the law, we

have looked to case law and sought

0:12:190:12:25

to follow that came fully. --

carefully.

It is not there for an

0:12:250:12:35

individual to not expect that

information to be shared? Is that

0:12:350:12:37

not reasonable?

The Minister Pato

position is that there's not

0:12:370:12:44

reasonable expectation. From our

perspective, we have given notice

0:12:440:12:48

that we may share this data with the

Home Office, address data for

0:12:480:12:52

immigration enforcement tracing

purposes, so we have sought to be

0:12:520:12:57

completely transparent about the

potential use of the data.

Do you

0:12:570:13:01

personally think that is right if

that is going to reduce people's

0:13:010:13:05

willingness to access health care?

You personally think that is right?

0:13:050:13:09

We don't have empirical evidence

that says this will impact people's

0:13:090:13:12

use of the system.

The information

procured by the Home Office resulted

0:13:120:13:24

in a deportation notice was sent to

AGP to pass on to a highly

0:13:240:13:30

vulnerable patient. Do you think

that is acceptable?

We have nothing

0:13:300:13:35

to do with how the Home Office

handle this.

But as a consequence of

0:13:350:13:39

you release snye data, you have to

take summer spots ability for what

0:13:390:13:43

then happens with that.

I know

nothing about the case that you're

0:13:430:13:47

talking about.

I am telling you what

happened and you think on that basis

0:13:470:13:52

it was appropriate?

I don't know

enough contextually about that case,

0:13:520:13:57

the way immigration enforcement

work, to be able to make a comment

0:13:570:14:01

on it.

That's just dismal. I just

think that you have been told very

0:14:010:14:09

clearly that there is a risk. Why we

do not apply a precautionary

0:14:090:14:16

principle on this and at least

suspends data sharing until they

0:14:160:14:20

have completed their review?

0:14:200:14:21

But Sarah Wilkinson insisted,

0:14:210:14:22

they hadn't been told clearly

that this data sharing had an impact

0:14:220:14:25

on people seeking health care.

0:14:250:14:29

And MPs were keeping up the pressure

on ministers to invest

0:14:290:14:31

in mental health services.

0:14:310:14:33

In a debate in Westminister Hall,

a former health minister,

0:14:330:14:35

said better services

would benefit both

0:14:350:14:36

the individual and the Treasury.

0:14:360:14:42

What we know from the analysis

that's been done is that for every

0:14:420:14:47

£1 to invest in early intervention

and psychosis, to get the return of

0:14:470:14:54

£15 over subsequent years. Where the

complications is that the return on

0:14:540:14:59

that investment is not concentrated

just the NHS. It's getting people

0:14:590:15:05

off benefits and into work. It's

bringing in tax revenue, it's

0:15:050:15:11

reducing the number of people who

end up going through the criminal

0:15:110:15:14

justice system. As well as reduction

in the use of the NHS.

0:15:140:15:19

Norman Lamb also said leaving

people for months before

0:15:190:15:23

they could get treatment

amounted to discrimination.

0:15:230:15:27

Why should someone who experiences

psychosis be treated in any inferior

0:15:270:15:33

way to someone who suffers from

cancer or any other physical

0:15:330:15:36

condition?

0:15:360:15:36

Labour's Paul Williams is a GP.

0:15:360:15:39

He said people who got rapid

treatment had "half a chance"

0:15:390:15:41

of getting their lives

back on track.

0:15:410:15:45

You can just imagine if there were a

pathway through, it improves

0:15:450:15:48

survival and recovery, we would know

all about it and fight for it.

In

0:15:480:15:56

the past, diagnosis of psychosis

would be a life sentence. But early

0:15:560:16:02

intervention and treatment now can

lead to a recovery, people can get

0:16:020:16:06

their lives back on track. This is

not the dark old days where if you

0:16:060:16:13

had a mental illness, that was it.

We know that people can recover and

0:16:130:16:17

people should recover, but getting

early treatment is absolutely

0:16:170:16:21

crucial to that.

0:16:210:16:23

The Health Minister agreed that

improving access to treatment must

0:16:230:16:25

be a "top priority" and said that

ministers had a plan.

0:16:250:16:30

It remains the Government's priority

that we do deliver a change in how

0:16:310:16:35

we provide services to people with

poor mental health, and that is a

0:16:350:16:42

cultural change, it will take time.

We will make the investment in the

0:16:420:16:48

additional static resources to

deliver that change.

0:16:480:16:50

The Health Minister.

0:16:500:16:54

Peers have been debating how

to tackle hate speech online,

0:16:540:16:56

but the subject of hate speech

within the Lords also came up.

0:16:560:17:01

The Bishop of Gloucester

0:17:010:17:03

began by considering how

vulnerable, children

0:17:030:17:05

were to extreme content.

0:17:050:17:09

Websites have not benefits but this

is fraud costs. I'm concerned about

0:17:090:17:13

the hate speech that young people

are exposed to online, including

0:17:130:17:19

through anonymous apps. What is the

Government doing to ensure that the

0:17:190:17:25

age verification checks on apps are

actually effective stop the

0:17:250:17:30

Government is working extensively

with platforms on things such as age

0:17:300:17:35

verification, but also on things

such as bullying and trolling

0:17:350:17:37

online.

Some of the things that

young people are exposed to second

0:17:370:17:42

blight their lives.

0:17:420:17:43

But then the questioning

moved closer to home.

0:17:430:17:46

It concerned Tommy Robinson,

the founder of the far-right group,

0:17:460:17:49

the English Defence League.

0:17:490:17:53

Does my noble friend agreed that all

members of this House should be

0:17:530:17:58

working to eradicate all forms of

hate speech and I know the noble

0:17:580:18:03

lord Lord Pearson is desperate to

get into this question, or if he

0:18:030:18:06

does get the opportunity to do so,

he could explain whether he thinks

0:18:060:18:09

is appropriate for members of this

House to be hosting the likes of

0:18:090:18:14

Tommy Robinson within the precincts

of this House at a time when there

0:18:140:18:18

is an increased risk in relation to

hate crime, and members of the other

0:18:180:18:22

house have been receiving hate

letters.

I couldn't agree more that

0:18:220:18:28

this isn't just a governmental

thing, is not a societal, but as

0:18:280:18:33

legislators for this country, we

have got a strong leadership role to

0:18:330:18:36

take. It does this make me when I

see that certain quite extreme

0:18:360:18:44

people are actually being invited

into the Palace of Westminster to

0:18:440:18:49

propagate some of their hate.

0:18:490:18:53

The UKIP peer didn't

mention Tommy Robinson

0:18:530:18:55

when he asked a question later.

0:18:550:18:59

A former Labour cabinet minister

said hate speech wouldn't be tackled

0:18:590:19:02

by technical control of platforms

alone, education was key.

0:19:020:19:07

In the chequered history of this

country, then there was a glorious

0:19:070:19:15

hours and sacrifices were made, in

order to defeat an ideology where at

0:19:150:19:18

its core, had racial hatred,

homophobic hatred, and political

0:19:180:19:25

hatred as well. And that you

abandoned the history of this

0:19:250:19:31

country and its greatest hours by

indulging in any of them and our

0:19:310:19:35

young people should know that.

0:19:350:19:37

The Minister agreed and stressed

the need to respect the right

0:19:370:19:40

to free speech without forgetting

how many lives had been

0:19:400:19:42

lost fighting hatred.

0:19:420:19:45

UN investigators have said it's

likely that crimes under

0:19:450:19:48

international law had been committed

against Rohingya Muslims

0:19:480:19:50

in the Burmese state of Rakine.

0:19:500:19:53

Hundreds of thousands

of people have fled

0:19:530:19:56

the violence and are now sheltering

in refugee camps in

0:19:560:19:58

neighbouring Bangladesh.

0:19:580:20:02

They now face new dangers

of landslides and flooding

0:20:020:20:04

during the monsoon season.

0:20:040:20:07

When a Foreign Office minister

updated MPs on the situation he said

0:20:070:20:10

the Burmese autorities has refused

to allow the UN fact finding

0:20:100:20:13

mission into the country.

0:20:130:20:18

Despite this, after interviewing

Rohingya refugees, the report

0:20:180:20:25

revealed evidence of widespread and

systematic rape and murder of her

0:20:250:20:29

Hindi people and the distraction of

their homes and villages, primarily

0:20:290:20:32

by the Burmese military. -- of

Rohingya people. Since August 2017,

0:20:320:20:45

nearly 680,000 refugees have sought

shelter. The UN special reporter for

0:20:450:20:54

human rights in Burma recently

stated the conflict had all the

0:20:540:20:58

hallmarks of genocide. However, I

must tell the House that the only

0:20:580:21:03

path to prosecution for genocide

were crimes against humanity is by

0:21:030:21:07

the international criminal Court. It

is a legal process. Burma is not a

0:21:070:21:12

party to their own statute and must

either therefore revert itself to

0:21:120:21:16

the court or be referred by the UN

Security Council. Neither

0:21:160:21:22

eventuality is likely, I fear, in

the short term.

You will understand

0:21:220:21:27

the long-standing view on the side

of the House that is time to go

0:21:270:21:30

further and be more public and using

the UK's formal role as pen holder

0:21:300:21:37

on Myanmar and the United Nations

Security Council. The table

0:21:370:21:40

resolutions on these vital issues.

First, to table a resolution setting

0:21:400:21:46

down the terms under which the

repair attrition process should

0:21:460:21:51

proceed and the future rights and

protections that must be accorded to

0:21:510:21:56

the Rohingya refugees and obliging

the Myanmar authority to accede to

0:21:560:22:02

these terms. Secondly, at the

appropriate time, to table a

0:22:020:22:07

resolution referring Myanmar to the

international criminal Court. So

0:22:070:22:11

that the generals who this week

scandalously dismissed the UN's

0:22:110:22:16

claims of ethnic cleansing and

genocide and said instead that the

0:22:160:22:21

Rohingya had burned down their own

houses so that they can be brought

0:22:210:22:24

to account.

We will... There was

taken place in Burma a human rights

0:22:240:22:34

violation of the most serious kind.

Amounting to crimes under

0:22:340:22:38

international law and we've heard

earlier,... As a speaker today, my

0:22:380:22:49

own... Which was given to Aung San

Suu Kyi for...

The Minister has

0:22:490:23:01

reminded the House today that they

UN special reporter for human rights

0:23:010:23:05

in Burma has described this conflict

as having the hallmarks of genocide.

0:23:050:23:11

It is therefore absolutely

imperative that everything is done

0:23:110:23:14

to bring the various actors to

justice at the conclusion of it. The

0:23:140:23:19

Minister is quite right to remind us

about the challenges that we face in

0:23:190:23:22

reaching that end but there is an

immediate issue here, the most

0:23:220:23:29

compelling evidence that will inform

any prosecution in the future is to

0:23:290:23:33

be found now. Can't the Minister

tell me what the Government is doing

0:23:330:23:37

to ensure that every piece of

evidence that is available for

0:23:370:23:44

future use is being sought and

acquired at the moment?

0:23:440:23:46

The minister said the British

government was doing

0:23:460:23:48

its best to make sure

all the evidence was collected.

0:23:480:23:52

There have claims that the creative

industries will lose "vital

0:23:520:23:55

protection" after the UK

leaves the EU.

0:23:550:23:57

A Liberal Democrat was worried

about Brexit's impact on fashion

0:23:570:23:59

and design-based industries.

0:23:590:24:05

The heart exit from the EU means the

loss of EU unregistered community

0:24:050:24:10

design rights and vital protection

for designers who first disclosed

0:24:100:24:15

their designs in the UK. This is

just the way to lose London Fashion

0:24:150:24:19

Week.

0:24:190:24:19

The business minister said

new schemes would be

0:24:190:24:21

established to protect rights.

0:24:210:24:23

We will bring forward... To further

our rights here, there are the

0:24:230:24:31

negotiations that will take place in

the EU, with the EU as part of the

0:24:310:24:36

leaving process, which we hope will

feel though such will deal with

0:24:360:24:43

these matters.

0:24:430:24:44

But that didn't convince

one Labour peer.

0:24:440:24:46

The amount of GDP that Fashion Week

race of this country is enormous, we

0:24:460:24:52

really needed to continue. Can you

ensure that this industry is welcome

0:24:520:24:57

here and will make sure that this

will happen quickly otherwise they

0:24:570:25:01

will look to go to Paris and Milan,

because they are asking them and

0:25:010:25:05

baiting them to come.

I think the

noble lady is taking a rather

0:25:050:25:10

pessimistic view of things, but we

are aware of those risks. When one

0:25:100:25:16

thinks of the strengths of the

industry in this country, I think

0:25:160:25:20

it's unlikely it's going to leave

overnight. But we will be in

0:25:200:25:23

discussion with people such as the

fashion Council, listen to their

0:25:230:25:30

particular concerns and we will

continue with our negotiations as

0:25:300:25:35

part of the process.

0:25:350:25:36

And that's it.

0:25:370:25:38

Join me at the same time

tomorrow for a look back

0:25:380:25:40

at the whole Week in Parliament,

but for now from me,

0:25:400:25:43

Mandy Baker, goodbye.
