Privilege (29 Nov 2022)

Pete Wishart: I have been in this House for 21 years, and as you know, Madam Deputy Speaker, I have been a member of the House of Commons Commission for something like four years. I had absolutely no idea that we could not reveal that we had had correspondence with the Speaker or summarise what it was. How on earth was my hon. Friend supposed to know that, when I, with my 21 years in this House and my...

Support for British Farming — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (23 Nov 2022)

Pete Wishart: Thank you, Sir Gary; I will ensure that trend is kept to. I congratulate the hon. Member for East Devon (Simon Jupp) on securing a thoughtful and fascinating debate. The conclusion of all this is that British farmers still need support, and what they have received thus far is not sufficient to ensure that we have good farming practice. I feel like a veteran at some of these debates. I have...

Support for British Farming — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (23 Nov 2022)

Pete Wishart: I do not have time, I am sorry. The last theme I want to mention comes up very often in these debates and that is the shortage of labour. I am sorry to Conservative colleagues, but this is another consequence of their Brexit. I think they know that. They are not prepared to accept it and say that this is a difficult issue because of it, but ending freedom of movement with Brexit has probably...

Scottish Referendum Legislation: Supreme Court Decision (23 Nov 2022)

Pete Wishart: This ruling is bad for the Government, and I do not think they quite see that yet. This ruling confronts the Scottish people with the fact that there is no legal or democratic route to a referendum. All that will do is to infuriate the Scottish people and make sure that they have their demands for Scottish democracy in place. What we have not had is the how. How do we now get to a referendum...

The Secretary of State was asked: Food Production (17 Nov 2022)

Pete Wishart: Some of the things that we require to ensure increased food production are good trade deals, and in a rare moment of understated candour, the former Secretary of State, the right hon. Member for Camborne and Redruth (George Eustice), has conceded that the much-trumpeted flagship Australian trade deal is “not…very good”, something any of us could have told him if he had been prepared to...

Scotland: Trust in the UK Government (16 Nov 2022)

Pete Wishart: I say to the Minister that his Government will never regain the trust of the Scottish people as long as they do not respect the democracy of our Parliament. [Interruption.] The Secretary of State might have his bolthole in the House of Lords, but the Minister and all his other Scottish colleagues will have to face the wrath of the electorate, so what representations has the soon-to-be Baron...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Arts: Finance (14 Nov 2022)

Pete Wishart: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what steps her Department is taking to protect public funding for creative industries during the period of increases to the cost of living.

Levelling Up Rural Britain (9 Nov 2022)

Pete Wishart: It is a real pleasure to sum up for the Scottish National party. It has been a fine debate and an important one, and I congratulate the hon. Member for North Devon (Selaine Saxby) on securing it, but I have to say that I do not know where to start in summing it up. Hon. Members actually still believe that something called levelling up is going on across the United Kingdom and that it will...

Levelling Up Rural Britain (9 Nov 2022)

Pete Wishart: I cannot; I have no time. Let us look at where this largesse is going. I do not know whether anyone is surprised by this, but of the 49 council areas in England that were considered to be the most developed but are now priority places, no fewer than 35 are represented by Conservative MPs, or a majority of Conservative MPs. Finally, let us look at how this will affect Scotland. Levelling up is...

Pete Wishart: I am just bringing some drama.

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy (2 Nov 2022)

Pete Wishart: I am delighted to be called so early, Mr Deputy Speaker; I was not expecting it. I want to see whether we can do something different in this debate. These debates are always characterised by real polarisation, with people who are passionately Unionist on one side and wanting to put that case, and with us on the SNP Benches wanting to put the case for an independent Scotland. I am going to see...

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy (2 Nov 2022)

Pete Wishart: I will respond to that challenge and I thank the hon. Gentleman, because I think I heard him say that Scotland would be a successful independent country. I think that is what he was saying.

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy (2 Nov 2022)

Pete Wishart: I want to hear the hon. Gentleman say that too.
