Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Common Fisheries Policy (16 Jan 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: If the Government’s commitment to ending the CFP on 31 December next year is sincere, why do they continue to resist amendments to put that date in the Fisheries Bill?

Health and Social Care: Cannabis-based Products: Medicinal Use (15 Jan 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: What recent clinical advice he has sought on the licensing of cannabis oil for medicinal purposes.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Syria: Coalition Forces (14 Jan 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: What recent discussions he has had with his US counterpart on the future deployment of coalition forces in Syria.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Syria: Coalition Forces (14 Jan 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: One of the many risks of the position taken by President Trump, as recently exposed on Twitter, is that it leaves the Kurdish forces and population in Syria vulnerable to attacks by Russia, Turkey and others. The Kurds have been an important part of the coalition of which we have been part. Will the Secretary of State give me some assurance that, whatever America does, we will continue to...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Livestock: Transport (8 Jan 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what his policy is on the transportation of livestock from the UK to the EU in the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Livestock: Exports (20 Dec 2018)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what assessment he has made of the effect of the UK leaving the EU without a deal on livestock exports to the EU.

Speaker’S Statement (19 Dec 2018)

Alistair Carmichael: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. The right hon. Member for New Forest West (Sir Desmond Swayne) was right in saying that whatever the Leader of the Opposition said was not said on the record; the Leader of the Opposition, however, has now put it on the record by coming to the Dispatch Box and making his statement. Anyone—and I mean anyone, not just those in the Chamber—who has a...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Fishing co-operatives (17 Dec 2018)

Alistair Carmichael: The issues that I sought to explore in relation to new clause 23 were well explored earlier in our proceedings, and accordingly I am not seeking to press it. Title

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Fishing co-operatives (17 Dec 2018)

Alistair Carmichael: Further to that point of order, Mr Gray. I associate myself with those comments. It is at least eight and possibly nine years since I last sat on a Public Bill Committee. In fact, if I say that the last time I sat on a Bill of this sort it was a Standing Committee, you will understand, Mr Gray, that that takes us back to at least before 2010. In addition to those we have already thanked, we...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Expert advisory council on fisheries (17 Dec 2018)

Alistair Carmichael: I commend the Minister for all those moves—they are exactly what he should be doing. However, this issue requires a Minister to be prepared to engage in that way. The Minister has been a Member for a good few years; he has certainly seen a few Fisheries Ministers in his time, and before he came to the House he saw other Fisheries Ministers who had a very different approach. Does he not...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Plastic waste produced by fishing activities (17 Dec 2018)

Alistair Carmichael: The inclusion of such a clause should be supported. If someone walks along any beach these days, they will see discarded rope, net, broken floats and old floats. Unfortunately, a lot of the plastic waste on our beaches comes from the fishing industry. There is a mixed experience with regard to the industry and its approach to that. There have been several really good initiatives over the...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Duty to ensure adequate monitoring and enforcement (17 Dec 2018)

Alistair Carmichael: Earlier this evening, when Mr Hanson was in the Chair—

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Duty to ensure adequate monitoring and enforcement (17 Dec 2018)

Alistair Carmichael: The joy is matched by your own presence in the Chair, Mr Gray, I assure you. The challenge was put down that we should have Home Office Ministers on our fishing boats. It seems that the best we are going to get is some Border Force officers on a fishing boat, and not necessarily in the circumstances that we might have voted on for the purpose that we were discussing. I said at the start that...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Duty to co-operate (17 Dec 2018)

Alistair Carmichael: I support the new clause, which I think would improve the Bill. I certainly take the view that a dispute resolution mechanism would be preferable. In the absence of that, however, having a duty to co-operate would at least allow for a situation in which any party that was not co-operating could be subject to judicial review, because they would be in breach of a duty given to them under the...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Expert advisory council on fisheries (17 Dec 2018)

Alistair Carmichael: Fisheries management, and the politics surrounding it, is always at its worst when all the various stakeholders and parties retreat to their own silos and just lob howitzers at each other. We have seen how that works at different points over the years. It is unproductive. The secret to effective fisheries management, in my view, has always been to require there to be credibility from the...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Managing shared stocks (17 Dec 2018)

Alistair Carmichael: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. We come back almost full circle to how we deal with what are known as shared stocks. It is pretty clear that that is going to be a subject of some political and commercial significance when we move to the next stage of negotiations on the future relationship with our current EU neighbours. We have observed a number of times that the...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Managing shared stocks (17 Dec 2018)

Alistair Carmichael: It is a pity that the Minister’s appetite for declaratory clauses appears to have been sated by the introduction of new clause 22. I confess that I struggled to follow some of his reasoning. It comes to the point about subsection (6). Essentially, the Minister seems to be saying that we will behave in such a way that it is unnecessary for us to include the provision in the Bill, because...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Duty to ensure adequate monitoring and enforcement (17 Dec 2018)

Alistair Carmichael: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. This is a very much a probing new clause. There is little in the Bill—arguably nothing—that deals with monitoring and enforcement. This proposal, authored by Greener UK, is to have real-time reporting with technological devices and CCTV cameras. Those are live issues within the industry, and between industry scientists and...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Sea Fish Industry Authority: powers in relation to parts of UK etc. (17 Dec 2018)

Alistair Carmichael: I just want to tease out the issues here a little bit. I ask this question in a spirit of genuine inquiry, because I do not know the answer to it, but I would think that a lot of the inshore boats—the foreign boats in particular—around the hon. Gentleman’s constituency and certainly on the Clyde will fish as far down as the Isle of Man and around there, so what, in this context,...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Fisheries payments to the Scottish Ministers (17 Dec 2018)

Alistair Carmichael: I have essentially reached the same conclusion as the two previous speakers, for slightly different reasons. The EMFF money has been of massive significance to the industry and to communities around the UK coastline. I support some sort of guarantee that that money will continue to go to our fishing industries and communities. The amendment deals, of course, only with guaranteeing that the...
