Further Education Funding — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (4 Nov 2020)

Stewart Hosie: Before I call the next speaker, I want to start the summings-up at around 3.38 pm, but given that we are slightly sparse, I am not going to put on a time limit at the moment, even an informal one: just ca’ canny.

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill: Clause 1 - Authorisation of criminal conduct (15 Oct 2020)

Stewart Hosie: Before the right hon. Gentleman moves on to his next subject, there is also an issue of trust. The Bill envisages giving the Government a significant degree of ability to authorise criminal activity. As someone who is happy to give this Bill a fair wind with certain conditions, I say that if the Government cannot see fit to include on the face of the Bill this very modest new clause from our...

Covid-19 Economic Support Package (14 Oct 2020)

Stewart Hosie: Does my hon. Friend not think the Chancellor’s intervention was rather peculiar? The Chancellor is, of course, absolutely right that the Scottish Government can set a Budget, notwithstanding that it would be blind, but, depending on the Chancellor’s decisions, it may lead to subsequent in-year cuts or in-year changes. I am sure this Chancellor would not tolerate it if someone else was...

RNLI and Independent Lifeboats: Covid-19 — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (13 Oct 2020)

Stewart Hosie: Given that a few speakers on the call list are not here, I am pleased to say that the remaining speakers can now take five minutes.

RNLI and Independent Lifeboats: Covid-19 — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (13 Oct 2020)

Stewart Hosie: Before we continue the debate, I will say two things. First, if the hon. Member for Hastings and Rye (Sally-Ann Hart) wants to take a seat in the horseshoe, she is more than welcome. Secondly, 11 Members are due to speak before the summing up, which will begin at 3.30 pm, so if everyone could speak for just shy of four minutes, everything will be perfect.

RNLI and Independent Lifeboats: Covid-19 — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (13 Oct 2020)

Stewart Hosie: Before we begin, I remind Members that there have been some changes to normal practice, to support social distancing. Please sanitise the microphones using the cleaning materials provided before you use them. Respect the one-way system in the Chamber. That means going in one door, and walking this way, and leaving by the other door. Members can speak only from the horseshoe. There is no...

International Trade: Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (8 Oct 2020)

Stewart Hosie: I thank the Minister for the update. However, when the non-partisan Centre for Economic Policy Research assessed the United States accession to the original and similar trans-Pacific partnership trade deal, it concluded that wages might rise for the top 10% of earners but fall for everybody else. What assessment has his Department made of the impact of CPTPP accession on income levels in the...

International Trade: Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (8 Oct 2020)

Stewart Hosie: It is just not the UK that is seeking to join CPTPP; Thailand, for example, is actively investigating it. Thailand’s faculty of pharmaceutical sciences has assessed that because of the way CPTPP rules on patents and on market approval for generic drugs that impact on Government procurement and so on work, the costs of drugs would rise. Given the Bangkok Post headline that CPTPP would lead...

Flooding: Staffordshire (7 Oct 2020)

Stewart Hosie: I call Theo Clarke for the briefest of summings-up.

Flooding: Staffordshire (7 Oct 2020)

Stewart Hosie: You are allowed to take interventions from people on the call list.

Flooding: Staffordshire (7 Oct 2020)

Stewart Hosie: I want to start the summing-up speeches at a quarter past five. There are six more speakers, so if they could take five minutes each it will all be super.

Flooding: Staffordshire (7 Oct 2020)

Stewart Hosie: Before we begin, I briefly remind Members that there are some changes to normal practice in order to support the new call list system, and to ensure that social distancing can be respected. Members should sanitise their microphones before they use them and respect the one-way system around the room—that means you come down this side and out that way. Members should only speak from the...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill (5 Oct 2020)

Stewart Hosie: Will the Minister give way before he moves on?

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill (5 Oct 2020)

Stewart Hosie: On the point that the Minister just made in relation to the Human Rights Act, proposed new section 29B(7) of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 in clause 1 and proposed new section 7A(6) of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers (Scotland) Act 2000 in schedule 1, say, for example, that subsection X is “without prejudice to the need to take into account other matters so far as...

Japan Free Trade Agreement (14 Sep 2020)

Stewart Hosie: I congratulate the Secretary of State. I recognise that, although this deal shares many similarities with the EU deal, it goes slightly further in a limited number of areas, not least the geographic indicators. It would be interesting, however, to find out just how many the UK pushed for as part of the EU deal. On the vexed issue of cheese, which is barely mentioned, surprisingly, it would...

Scotland: UK Internal Market (9 Sep 2020)

Stewart Hosie: What discussions he has had with (a) Cabinet colleagues and (b) the Scottish Government on legislative proposals for a UK internal market.

Scotland: UK Internal Market (9 Sep 2020)

Stewart Hosie: The gravity analysis published in the internal market Command Paper suggests that a border effected between Scotland and the rest of the UK would have an impact of about 1.1% of Scottish GDP. Brexit will have an impact seven times greater—a loss of GDP growth in Scotland of about 8%. When the Secretary of State has discussions with the Scottish Government, will he commit to bring forward...

International Trade: Free Trade Agreement Negotiations: Food and Farming (3 Sep 2020)

Stewart Hosie: During the passage of the Trade Bill, farmers via the NFU and others, including doctors via the British Medical Association, expressed deep concerns that food standards in future trade deals could be under threat, allowing in, for example, vegetables from the US, where 72 chemicals are allowed that are currently banned in the UK. Given that the Government refused to legislate in the Trade...

International Trade: Free Trade Agreement Negotiations: Food and Farming (3 Sep 2020)

Stewart Hosie: All that answer confirms is that there are no legislative protections in the Trade Bill and that MPs will have no say in any future trade deal except for potentially a “take it or leave it” choice after the negotiations are concluded. Given that Which? tells us that 95% of the public want to maintain current food standards, why do this Government continue to rule out real legislative...

Trade Bill: New Clause 5 - Disclosure of information by other authorities (20 Jul 2020)

Stewart Hosie: Yes, and I made that point. It is wrong for these provisions to be available only to investors in the way that has just been described. If we want a supranational body that adjudicates, arbitrates and works, let us have the UK Government put some pressure on their friends in the United States and get the WTO appellate body back up and running and functioning again. That would be the best...
