Subsidy Control Bill (22 Sep 2021)

Angus MacNeil: It is unclear that the UK Government have a strategy to replace the EU’s successful regional structural funding for Wales, Northern Ireland and many parts of the highlands in Scotland. Such funding and state aid go hand in hand, and they are seen as different things. Indeed, the freeports are seen as a different thing. There needs to be something else to go with this for areas of the UK...

Subsidy Control Bill (22 Sep 2021)

Angus MacNeil: The hon. Gentleman is making some excellent points. I think that a Bill’s Second Reading is the time to test the arguments. He mentioned transparency, and a colleague of his debated a similar point with the SNP Front-Bench spokesperson, my hon. Friend the Member for Aberdeen South (Stephen Flynn). The crux of it comes back to the state aid point. In the European Union, there were 27 or 28...

Subsidy Control Bill (22 Sep 2021)

Angus MacNeil: But is the CMA not a body of Westminster construction, as opposed to being a body of the Union?

Subsidy Control Bill (22 Sep 2021)

Angus MacNeil: Well, there are many Parliaments in this United Kingdom at the moment, and we know that each and every one should have the same voice. If this is the poacher and gamekeeper Parliament, surely that is a problem for Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales—that is the argument that I would postulate.

Subsidy Control Bill (22 Sep 2021)

Angus MacNeil: That is a vital point that will come forward in the next couple of months, when the Scottish islands could be providing as much as is coming across from some of the European interconnectors at present. On subsidies, the right hon. Member for East Antrim (Sammy Wilson) made a good point on enforcement. In part 5, an “interested party” is defined in clause 70(7) as “the Secretary of...

Subsidy Control Bill (22 Sep 2021)

Angus MacNeil: We could have a situation where somebody in England decides to set up something on the Welsh border or Scottish border without, seemingly, the powers of Scottish or Welsh Ministers, or even the Scottish Government, to try to remove the attention of Westminster. That is like the Scottish Government setting something up across the North channel almost in direct competition with Northern...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Tuna: Fishing Catches (9 Sep 2021)

Angus MacNeil: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, to which fisheries his Department has allocated the 48 tonne bluefin tuna quota set out under the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement; and where those fisheries are located.

International Trade: New Free Trade Agreements (15 Jul 2021)

Angus MacNeil: I concur with the previous speaker on the Maldives. Some seafood companies in Scotland have seen their costs of selling to the continent treble from 32p a kilo to about £1 a kilo. Also, UK exports to Ireland have fallen by 47.6%. All that illustrates the current damage Brexit is doing. We know from Government figures that, for every £490 lost to GDP, trade deals are not bringing in very...

Fisheries Management — [Sir Charles Walker in the Chair] (13 Jul 2021)

Angus MacNeil: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Charles, and to hear that we are getting an extra minute. I recall that you and I entered Parliament at the same time, so it adds to the joy. As a co-sponsor of this important debate, along with the hon. Member for Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport (Luke Pollard), I congratulate the right hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr...

Backbench Business: Enabling Community Energy — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (1 Jul 2021)

Angus MacNeil: It is a great pleasure, as others have said, to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I congratulate the hon. Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse) on securing this debate, and the hon. Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous), who has been diving into the detail of this, as we have observed over a period of time. I praise his impressive cross-party work, which is very good indeed. I thank the hon....

Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (24 Jun 2021)

Angus MacNeil: The hon. Gentleman is talking about free trade. I mentioned in my speech the damage to trade with neighbours in Ireland, for instance, but we used to trade very freely—with no paperwork, no hurdles and no hassle—with the 27 other member states of the European Union. How many countries across the world can we now trade with in the same way?

Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (24 Jun 2021)

Angus MacNeil: Scottish lamb.

Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (24 Jun 2021)

Angus MacNeil: Tapadh leibh, Madam Deputy Speaker. I also thank the Secretary of State for the debate. It is good to see the right hon. Member for North Somerset (Dr Fox), the former Secretary of State, in his place. The International Trade Committee had many interactions with him in his old role. Dominic Cummings was right, or at least partially right, in some of his utterances this week. In particular,...

Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (24 Jun 2021)

Angus MacNeil: The right hon. Lady makes that point in her own way, and I do not want to go into it too much given that the clock is still ticking. The comprehensive and progressive agreement for trans-Pacific partnership is not actually as comprehensive as it seems. Only seven out of the 11 countries have actually ratified it. Malaysia, Chile, Peru and Brunei have not. When we take out their GDP...
