Prime Minister: Engagements (22 Jan 2020)

Angus MacNeil: Brexiteers will be cheered by the fact that a possible trade deal with America might raise GDP by 0.2% and one with New Zealand and Australia might raise it by 0.02%, but they should be sobered by the fact that such trade deals, if achieved, would claw back only one 30th of what the Prime Minister’s own Government say leaving the single market and customs union will cost. Given that Cabinet...

Direct Payments to Farmers (Legislative Continuity) Bill (21 Jan 2020)

Angus MacNeil: We need to bear in mind that for crofters and farmers the big uncertainty will be the autumn markets if there are tariff barriers and trade hurdles with the EU. That should really leave an open-ended cheque for the gamblers in the UK Government, who have given blithe assertions that all will be fine—if it is not fine, it should not be the crofters and farmers who pay.

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Families (17 Jan 2020)

Angus MacNeil: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many applications for family reunification with a beneficiary of international protection were received by the UK in 2019, by nationality.

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Families (17 Jan 2020)

Angus MacNeil: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many decisions were made on applications for family reunification with a beneficiary of international protection in 2019; and how many of those applications were (a) accepted and (b) rejected.

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Families (14 Jan 2020)

Angus MacNeil: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many travel documents were issued to beneficiaries of international protection by the UK in 2019.

Written Answers — Scotland Office: Sovereignty: Scotland (13 Jan 2020)

Angus MacNeil: To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland, if he will agree to the section 30 order requested by the Scottish Government for a Scottish independence referendum; and what assessment he has made of the implications for his policies on a referendum of the (a) 2019 general election results in Scotland and (b) votes for a referendum in the Scottish Parliament.

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (9 Jan 2020)

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (9 Jan 2020)

Angus MacNeil: On the UK’s future relationship with the EU, the hon. Gentleman is content to leave it to the Tory Government, but on Scotland’s future relationship, all we get is being patronised; we cannot decide ourselves. The reality is that, in 2014, we were promised a guarantee of our place in the European Union by staying in the United Kingdom. That promise is null and void. We cannot have any...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (9 Jan 2020)

Angus MacNeil: I will go a step further than “almost a friend” and say that I am grateful to my friend for giving way. Dropping the friendliness for a moment and bringing the politics back into it straight, surely the hon. Gentleman would respect the devolved competences of the Scottish Government in agriculture and fishing in the new way of negotiation that the British Government plan to use to handle...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (9 Jan 2020)

Angus MacNeil: The right hon. Gentleman is making a point that pertains to my community in Na h-Eileanan an Iar as well. I heard Conservative voices saying that today the anguish will end. The anguish might end for those in the Conservative party and their psychodrama, but with this Brexit coming—and there is no good Brexit—the anguish is just beginning for an awful lot of people outside this Chamber.

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (9 Jan 2020)

Angus MacNeil: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (9 Jan 2020)

Angus MacNeil: The argument the hon. Gentleman is making about voters getting who they vote for and governing themselves is pertinent in Scotland. His party have been rejected by 75% of the people of Scotland. We have an unelected Tory Government governing Scotland. Surely he sees the justice of being able to ask the Scottish people whether they want to continue with a Government that 75% of them have...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (9 Jan 2020)

Angus MacNeil: That victory is so complete that, on 43%, their utter arrogance is such that they never need to go back and check with the people that they are doing the right thing. In Scotland, on 45%, we demand a referendum, not to do what we want but to ask the people if they want independence. But that is not for the Brexiteers, oh no; on 43% they will do what they want. The arrogance is massive on that...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (9 Jan 2020)

Angus MacNeil: Not only that; their victory has been so total that it has also been a victory over arithmetic. They know, or they should know, that their Brexit is going to damage GDP and economic growth by 5% to 6%, and that even if they get a trade deal with every country in the world, they can only make up 1.4% of that. America is only going to give them 0.2%, or a thirtieth of the damage they are going...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (9 Jan 2020)

Angus MacNeil: No, 80% of the seats.

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (9 Jan 2020)

Angus MacNeil: We heard them say no.

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (9 Jan 2020)

Angus MacNeil: I will give the right hon. Gentleman something joyous to think about: 57% of the people of the United Kingdom did not vote for him or his Government, yet because of our dodgy system, as the 43% and people across the world can see, the Conservative party is in charge—winner takes all.

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (9 Jan 2020)

Angus MacNeil: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?
