Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Legislative Consent (11 Jul 2018)

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Legislative Consent (11 Jul 2018)

David Mundell: At the heart of the issue is a fact in the Scottish Government’s document that this Government could not accept—the Scottish National party Scottish Government do not want to leave the European Union. The Prime Minister is focused on leaving the EU on a basis that not only does the best for British business, but respects the outcome of a referendum across the whole of the UK.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Legislative Consent (11 Jul 2018)

David Mundell: Goodness—the hon. Lady did not get a chance in the debate last week, so she just reheats the same old stuff.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Legislative Consent (11 Jul 2018)

David Mundell: I commend my hon. Friend for his efforts as a Minister. He was one of the hardest working Ministers I have ever encountered, and I absolutely agree with what he said. Although there are people in this Chamber who have their differences on Brexit, the SNP is not interested in Brexit—Brexit has been weaponised purely to take forward the cause of independence and have another independence...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Legislative Consent (11 Jul 2018)

David Mundell: I can absolutely do that. We have heard repeatedly from the SNP about a power grab, but when Nicola Sturgeon reshuffled her Cabinet, she needed more Ministers because of the powers and responsibilities that the Scottish Government were taking on. Today, we learn that they have taken on additional office space in Glasgow for a bigger organisation because they are delivering existing priorities...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Legislative Consent (11 Jul 2018)

David Mundell: I absolutely agree with my hon. Friend.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Legislative Consent (11 Jul 2018)

David Mundell: I am very keen and willing to work with the Scottish Government. As I said, the Scottish Government set out a helpful summary of their position, which we discussed with Mr Russell last week. I then set out the Scottish Government’s concerns and issues during the Cabinet meeting. After that Cabinet meeting, the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and people from the Prime...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Legislative Consent (11 Jul 2018)

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Fishing (11 Jul 2018)

David Mundell: May I first welcome my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Kenilworth and Southam (Jeremy Wright) to his role as Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, and thank his predecessor for his energy and the interest that he showed in Scotland?
