Constitutional Law (21 May 2024)

Angus MacNeil: Further to the point made by the hon. Member for Glasgow North (Patrick Grady) about the shadow Health Secretary pointing out that all roads lead to Westminster, and that the spending constraints and austerity that have been chosen were foisted upon everybody, it is a ridiculous situation, surely, when Scotland’s hands are tied like no other country in Europe. Spain does not decide its...

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

Constitutional Law (21 May 2024)

Angus MacNeil: I will be brief!

Constitutional Law (21 May 2024)

Angus MacNeil: The hon. Gentleman is making a good point on capital spending. The Scottish Government and a small Scottish island cannot build a replacement hospital at the moment because of those capital constraints. Meanwhile, independent Ireland has so much money from its surplus that it is funding nurses and Erasmus students not just in its own territory, but in Northern Ireland, which is currently part...

Constitutional Law (21 May 2024)

Angus MacNeil: What do he and the hon. Member for Edinburgh West (Christine Jardine) have against the Republic of Ireland? It has one Government, which is doing very well and has a budget surplus, unlike the UK that has the mishmash and a mess, with a Scotland underperforming in the UK and looking at an Ireland that is overperforming having left the UK. There are lessons to be learned for himself and other...

Angus MacNeil: We are awake all right.

Angus MacNeil: Will the hon. Member give way?

Constitutional Law (21 May 2024)

Angus MacNeil: The hon. Gentleman earlier mentioned the previous Prime Minister and the high interest rates in the sterling zone. Will he apologise for buddying up with the Tories in 2014, wearing his Union Jack jacket, saying that Scotland should stick with the Tory Government, stick with the risk of a Prime Minister doing what she did, and stick with the risk of a currency zone that has hammered...

Constitutional Law (21 May 2024)

Angus MacNeil: What are the spending limits on the UK Government? Is it not the case that the UK Government have balanced their books in only 11 years since 1945, and have paid back only about 1.7% to 2% of the debt accrued, if that? It is entirely erroneous to try to put shackles on the Scottish Government and what the Minister often calls the most powerful devolved Parliament in the world. Scotland should...

Constitutional Law (21 May 2024)

Angus MacNeil: Is it not a fact that had the recent blood scandal happened only in Scotland, the Scottish Government would not have had the means to do anything that might be asked of them, because of all these spending restrictions and the handcuffs put on them by Westminster? Are these real-world events not another reason that the Scottish Government should not be a hostage of the UK Government, as they...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill: After Clause 308 - Secondary ticketing facilities (21 May 2024)

Angus MacNeil: The hon. Lady has touched on the industrial scale of this practice, and we have heard about touts outside venues. Families may be thinking of buying tickets, and committing themselves to travelling and spending money on hotels, and that is what is wrong. If that happens again, the Government should face those families and explain why it has happened.

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill: After Clause 308 - Secondary ticketing facilities (21 May 2024)

Angus MacNeil: My hon. Friend makes a good point about the powers given to the CMA, and I wonder whether the Government can increase the ability to finance and give capacity to the CMA to deal with this sort of stuff, or is this just something that has been passed on in paper?

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill: After Clause 308 - Secondary ticketing facilities (21 May 2024)

Angus MacNeil: It is a great shame that the hon. Lady was not listened to 13 years ago, but I have a feeling that, unfortunately, after the Euros, with a political microscope on this issue, we will be back here an awful lot sooner than we think.

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill: After Clause 308 - Secondary ticketing facilities (21 May 2024)

Angus MacNeil: The hon. Lady mentioned Lord Moynihan. For context, it should be remembered that he was a sports Minister in Margaret Thatcher’s Government. If a Thatcher Minister is anti-market—the charge made from the Conservative Benches against anyone who supports his amendment—either the world has gone topsy-turvy or the Tory party has gone so far to the right it has lost itself.

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill: After Clause 308 - Secondary ticketing facilities (21 May 2024)

Angus MacNeil: On such ideological reasons, the Conservative party claims to be the party of Adam Smith, but if we read “The Wealth of Nations”, we see that the behaviour of the rentier class is not exactly praised by Adam Smith, and this is pure rent seeking. As the hon. Gentleman said, this is taking a ticket at £75, charging 90 times that and doing nothing to add any value at all. This is rent...
