Devolved Powers in Scotland (17 Oct 2017)

Angus MacNeil: Power unused is the approach of the Labour party in Scotland, which sent billions of pounds back to Westminster. They had money, and they did not use it for the good of Scotland. They handed it back.

Devolved Powers in Scotland (17 Oct 2017)

Angus MacNeil: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way. As he might know, we have a problem on the west coast of Scotland, because we need fishermen from non-European economic area countries. Westminster is stopping that, in contrast to Switzerland, for example, where half the visas are controlled by Bern and the other half by the 26 cantons. Does he not think that it is time for Westminster to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Refugee Family Reunions (16 Oct 2017)

Angus MacNeil: My private Member’s Bill, the Refugees (Family Reunion) (No. 2) Bill, will have its Second Reading on 16 March. It is important for families to be united, especially when they need to travel together. I have a 14-year-old constituent who was born and raised in the Hebrides. Unfortunately, her father has died and her mother has not been seen for about 12 years, as I am sure the Home...

International Trade: Topical Questions (12 Oct 2017)

Angus MacNeil: If the EU27 do not give the two-year extension that the Prime Minister begged for in Florence, trade barriers will rise between the UK and how many other countries? Does the Department have a number?

Race Disparity Audit: Bombardier (10 Oct 2017)

Angus MacNeil: I welcome the Secretary of State’s condemnation. What has happened is condemned not just in Northern Ireland, but across these islands, including by the Irish Government, as the Secretary of State said. I hope Bombardier will accept my invitation, as Chair of the International Trade Committee, to help combat this. However, on the wider issue—the World Trade Organisation...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Brexit: Farming (20 Jul 2017)

Angus MacNeil: Tapadh leibh, Mr Speaker. Farming and crofting leaders in Scotland hope that agriculture will be fully controlled in Scotland post Brexit, and according to fishing leaders the Secretary of State has intimated that the Scottish Government will control fishing to 200 miles—incidentally, Na h-Eileanan an Iar is probably the only constituency to reach 200 miles of the exclusive economic...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Barnett Formula: Public Sector Pay Cap (19 Jul 2017)

Angus MacNeil: What assessment he has made of the effect of the removal of the public sector pay cap in Scotland on the Barnett formula if that cap is retained in England.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Barnett Formula: Public Sector Pay Cap (19 Jul 2017)

Angus MacNeil: The Secretary of State’s constituents, and mine, have benefited from the Scottish National party Government’s ending of the public sector pay cap for their public sector workers in Scotland. The SNP tried to help public sector workers in England and throughout the UK by voting to end the UK public sector pay cap too. However, Scottish Tory MPs voted against helping workers in...

Seasonal Agricultural Workers Scheme — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (6 Jul 2017)

Angus MacNeil: I am pleased to wind up the debate on behalf of the Scottish National party. It has been a good debate, and I congratulate the hon. Member for Tiverton and Honiton (Neil Parish) on securing it. We know a seasonal agricultural workers scheme is important and necessary, and the feeling from all sides of the House is that it is a no-brainer. There is complete agreement across all regions and...

Seasonal Agricultural Workers Scheme — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (6 Jul 2017)

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

Seasonal Agricultural Workers Scheme — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (6 Jul 2017)

Angus MacNeil: The right hon. Gentleman talks about “taking back control”. He must have sympathy with the point I raised earlier: in Scotland we do not have control, because we have a system that is very centralised in London, deciding what we need and do not need, particularly if we want to take people from the Philippines. Switzerland, for example, can run a scheme where the 26 cantons control...

Seasonal Agricultural Workers Scheme — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (6 Jul 2017)

Angus MacNeil: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing this important debate. He allows me to segue neatly on to an issue that does not just affect agriculture. We have labour from beyond Europe in fishing. There are fishing boats on the west coast of Scotland and in Northern Ireland that are tied up at the moment due to a lack of people. One boat alone has lost £100,000 in uncaught fish. People...

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Angus MacNeil: The hon. Gentleman complains that the European Union is not democratic, while at the same time worrying about it being a superstate. The reality is that the European Union is a regional trade agreement, of which there are many in the world. One hundred and eighty-eight states of the United Nations are in regional trade agreements. Only five are not in regional trade agreements, and thus have...

Public Sector Pay Cap (5 Jul 2017)

Angus MacNeil: In a very readable book, “Austerity: The History of a Dangerous Idea”, Professor Mark Blyth charts the fact that austerity always fails, either at the ballot box or with people waking up to the failing nonsense that is austerity. If the Government instead concentrated on growth, the deficit would take care of itself. Is it not time that public sector workers, who pay taxes, are...

Economy and Jobs (29 Jun 2017)

Angus MacNeil: Will my hon. Friend give way?
