Cabinet Office: Barriers to Trade Between EU and UK (27 May 2021)

Stewart Hosie: Monitoring is fine, but we need action. Let me raise the issue of another business: ATL Turbine Services, which brings into Scotland for repair turbine parts from around Europe and the world. It has told me that its post-Brexit admin costs are now 10 to 15 times greater than they were last year. It cannot use the Revenue’s post-VAT accounting processes. It is encountering significantly more...

Ministerial Code/Register of Ministers’ Interests (18 May 2021)

Stewart Hosie: Annex B of the ministerial code says it is “important that when a former Minister takes up a particular appointment or employment, there should be no cause for any suspicion of impropriety.” Given that David Cameron worked as an adviser for Greensill Capital and is reported to have share options worth tens of millions of pounds, do the 57 messages to senior officials that we are aware of...

Ministerial Code (26 Apr 2021)

Stewart Hosie: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow Central (Alison Thewliss) for securing this important urgent question. We have had PPE contracts awarded to donors and cronies without a robust tender process, NHS contracts awarded to a firm partly owned by the Health Secretary, privileged secret communications between an ex-Prime Minister and the Chancellor, and between James Dyson and the...

Cabinet Office: Native Advertising in UK Newspapers: Departmental Spending (25 Mar 2021)

Stewart Hosie: In relation to these native adverts regarding the so-called benefits of Brexit, the Advertising Standards Authority says that “Marketing communications must be obviously identifiable as such” and that marketers—in this case, the UK Government— “must make clear that advertorials are marketing communications”. Some newspapers do say “Ad features sponsored by the UK Government.”...

Cabinet Office: Native Advertising in UK Newspapers: Departmental Spending (25 Mar 2021)

Stewart Hosie: There are many examples of what I am talking about, and the Government do not know them. That the Minister does not know is to his shame. Rule 7.2 of the ASA code makes it clear that: “Marketing communications by central…government…are subject to the Code” and rule 3.5 says: “Marketing communications must not materially mislead by omitting the identity of the marketer.” So let me...

Luton Airport Expansion (24 Mar 2021)

Stewart Hosie: As this is a half-hour debate, there is no winding up or summing up. Question put and agreed to. Sitting suspended.

Luton Airport Expansion (24 Mar 2021)

Stewart Hosie: For an equally brief contribution, I call Bim Afolami.

Luton Airport Expansion (24 Mar 2021)

Stewart Hosie: I remind hon. Members that there have been a few changes to normal practice in order to support the new hybrid arrangements. I remind Members participating virtually that they are visible at all times, both to anyone else on the call and us in the Boothroyd Room. Members attending physically should clean their spaces before they use them and as they leave the room. I remind Members that Mr...

Luton Airport Expansion (24 Mar 2021)

Stewart Hosie: For a brief contribution, I call Richard Fuller.

NHS Pay — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (24 Mar 2021)

Stewart Hosie: Order. I am afraid the three minutes are up. You can have half a sentence.

NHS Pay — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (24 Mar 2021)

Stewart Hosie: I remind hon. Members that there have been some changes to the normal practice in order to support the new hybrid arrangements. The timings of debates have been amended to allow technical arrangements to be made for the next debate. There will be suspensions between debates. I remind Members participating, physically and virtually, that they must arrive for the start of a debate in...

Leaving the EU: Impact on the UK (17 Mar 2021)

Stewart Hosie: It is a genuine privilege to follow the contribution from the hon. Member for Moray (Douglas Ross), because I believe that in the six minutes or so he spoke for he did not once mention Brexit, nor did he once recognise the difficulties caused by Brexit. We can conclude only that the Tories do not care about the damage that Brexit has caused. Let me start by asking: what do we know about...

Covid-19: Government’s Publication of Contracts (9 Mar 2021)

Stewart Hosie: Some 94% of contracts awarded before 7 October were, unlawfully, not published in time and, as of late last week, 100 are still not published. Some 58% were awarded without a competitive tendering process. There are conflicts of interest, inadequate documentation, a high-priority crony lane and then the Prime Minister announcing that all of the contracts were, “on the record for everybody...

Covid Contracts: Judicial Review (24 Feb 2021)

Stewart Hosie: I am glad the Minister mentioned transparency, because of the £15 billion PPE contracts awarded up until last October, barely £3 billion were properly published, and we had £252 million given to a finance company, £108 million to a confectionery supplier and £345 million to a pest control company—a catalogue of cronyism, described variously as a “wholesale failure”, a “dismal...

Cabinet Office: Trade: UK and EU (11 Feb 2021)

Stewart Hosie: The House of Commons Library described the EU trade and co-operation agreement by saying, as the Minister has: “There will be no tariffs or quotas…provided rules of origin are met.” However, it went on to say: “There are increased non-tariff barriers, but measures on customs and trade facilitation to ease these.” Given that 60% of companies have had difficulties importing from or...

Cabinet Office: Trade: UK and EU (11 Feb 2021)

Stewart Hosie: I am struggling to see the advantages and new opportunities. A firm in my constituency, Wilde Mode Ltd, imports, among other things, rolls of printed fabric from Poland. Before Brexit, the cost of delivery was less than €40, but because courier and other companies are no longer shipping to the UK the owners of that company are now being quoted €2,000 for the same delivery. As the Minister...

National Security and Investment Bill: New Clause 7 - Reports to the Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament (20 Jan 2021)

Stewart Hosie: I also offer my congratulations to the Secretary of State on his promotion. I thank all the staff who have worked on the Bill so far and the businesses, trade bodies and others that advised on what might or might not be good about the legislation as it has gone through its stages. Finally, I thank Members from all parties—not just those who took part in the set piece debates, but those who...

National Security and Investment Bill: New Clause 1 - Impact on academic research spin-off enterprises (20 Jan 2021)

Stewart Hosie: This has been a detailed and considered debate. I thought there were some particularly thoughtful contributions from the Chair of the ISC and from the right hon. Member for North Durham (Mr Jones) in relation to the oversight of sensitive and confidential information that should fall within the remit of the ISC. It was disappointing to hear the Minister’s response in his last...

National Security and Investment Bill: New Clause 1 - Impact on academic research spin-off enterprises (20 Jan 2021)

Stewart Hosie: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

National Security and Investment Bill: New Clause 1 - Impact on academic research spin-off enterprises (20 Jan 2021)

Stewart Hosie: The new clause is in my name and the names of my hon. Friends, as are new clauses 2 and 3 and amendments 1 to 6. On Second Reading of this Bill, I described how it was designed to bring additional scrutiny of foreign investment that may have an impact on national security. I agreed that not only was there nothing wrong with having a national security eye on investments in critical areas, but...
