European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Corresponding powers involving devolved authorities (16 Jan 2018)

Ian Murray: I am delighted to follow the hon. Members for Stirling (Stephen Kerr) and for Aberdeen South (Ross Thomson), who highlighted the problem that we have had with the Government. I think that there should be an act of good faith this evening: the Government should accept amendment 3, tabled by Opposition Front Benchers, and if they want to alter it in the other place, they will be able to do so....

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Corresponding powers involving devolved authorities (16 Jan 2018)

Ian Murray: The hon. Gentleman is making the same argument as the hon. Member for Stirling (Stephen Kerr) with regard to the negotiations being complete and the negotiations and the conclusion to them then influencing amendments in the other place. If the negotiations do not conclude by the time this Bill passes through the other place, what mechanisms do he or any of his Scottish Conservative MP...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Corresponding powers involving devolved authorities (16 Jan 2018)

Ian Murray: I will try for the sixth time over two debates to get the hon. Gentleman to answer this question. I ask him to please not say that he is coming on to it, when he never comes on to it. What is deficient in clause 11? What would he like to see changed in order to make it a clause that is not deficient? Does he stand by what he said in the previous debate that he expects the Government to come...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Corresponding powers involving devolved authorities (16 Jan 2018)

Ian Murray: I am not going to ask the hon. Gentleman for the seventh time, but will he tell the House what mechanism he and his Scottish Conservative MP colleagues would have in this House if the Government do not amend the Bill in the House of Lords?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Corresponding powers involving devolved authorities (16 Jan 2018)

Ian Murray: Would it not be an act of good faith for the Government to accept amendment 3 today, and then to amend that amendment in the Lords?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Corresponding powers involving devolved authorities (16 Jan 2018)

Ian Murray: The hon. Gentleman is running through the start of the speech he made in Committee, during which I asked him four times to outline how he feels clause 11 is deficient and how he would like that sorted. Would he like to take this opportunity to tell us?

Welsh Grand Committee (9 Jan 2018)

Ian Murray: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. During the passage of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill through Committee, Scottish Conservative MP after Scottish Conservative MP said that clause 11 was deficient, but took the assurances of those on the Treasury Bench that amendments would be tabled on Report. Subsequent to that, at Scottish questions, the Secretary of State for Scotland gave...

Trade Bill (9 Jan 2018)

Ian Murray: Happy new year, Madam Deputy Speaker, to you and everyone in the House. I want to send a clear message to my constituents, in response to the invitation of the hon. Member for Fylde (Mark Menzies), that I hope this Parliament votes some time to continue to participate in the single market and the customs union to protect the very jobs, businesses and future prosperity that he wants his...

Trade Bill (9 Jan 2018)

Ian Murray: So the Minister is telling the House that the 65 trade agreements currently between the EU and other countries will be grandfathered across to UK law without any changes. I am sorry, Madam Deputy Speaker, but that is utterly, completely impossible.

Trade Bill (9 Jan 2018)

Ian Murray: Whether it be mutton flaps, which my hon. Friend the Member for Bristol East (Kerry McCarthy) talked about in the case of Samoa, the Scotch whisky industry, car parts or anything that this country currently exports, the people who have been watching this debate tonight should look at the television, rewind to 5.15 and listen to the Minister’s two responses. His first response was,...

Trade Bill (9 Jan 2018)

Ian Murray: The Minister can maybe clarify when he sums up the debate, and I hope he does, because he has created a bit of confusion. I say this in the greatest of spirit to my own Front Bench. I do not disagree with their movement on retaining the customs union and the single market during the transitional phase, but I do disagree with them on this. I say, with all due respect, that is no difference in...

Trade Bill (9 Jan 2018)

Ian Murray: My hon. Friend will know that trade agreements require negotiation—it takes two to tango. This Parliament will be asked to delegate powers to the Secretary of State and the Executive to make changes to bilateral agreements with countries that already have EU bilateral agreements, so decisions that might involve sectors such as the Scotch whisky industry being thrown under a bus to...

Trade Bill (9 Jan 2018)

Ian Murray: I wish just to push the Secretary of State on one point. What will be the process in this House if, for example, the South Korea trade deal, which is currently an EU trade deal, is transposed to UK law to be a UK trade deal and the South Koreans decide to renegotiate the deal on Scotch whisky? What goes through this House?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (9 Jan 2018)

Ian Murray: UK humanitarian workers have told us that 10 hospitals in Syria have been directly targeted by Russian and Syrian forces over the past few weeks. These attacks go against the Geneva convention, but they have also left hundreds of children starving and in need of urgent humanitarian help. Will the Foreign Secretary indicate whether he intends to follow through on his previous pledge to donate...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill (8 Jan 2018)

Ian Murray: The Minister continually uses the word “frictionless” and talks about keeping things as they are now. Indeed, the Bill will facilitate our keeping the customs union regulations as they are at the moment, so what principle are the Government using to take participation in the customs union off the table?

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Rohingya (8 Jan 2018)

Ian Murray: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what long-term plans his Department has to tackle the crisis for the Rohingya people in Myanmar and Bangladesh.

Attorney General: Business of the House (21 Dec 2017)

Ian Murray: Merry Christmas, Mr Speaker, to you and your family, and to all who serve in this House. May I ask the Leader of the House for an urgent debate on the Government’s red lines on Brexit? Two days ago, we heard from the EU chief negotiator that passporting financial services is not possible while the Government insist on their red lines. Tens of thousands of jobs in Edinburgh rely on this.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Ian Murray: If that is not the case for financial services—I can see the Minister shaking his head to indicate that it might not be—perhaps I can turn the Minister’s attention to the Scotch whisky industry. Is that a sector that the Government are determined to throw under the bus? What about our wonderful Aberdeen Angus beef sector? Will the country be flooded with antibiotic beef to...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Ian Murray: Nobody voted to leave the single market and customs union. As the Chancellor has said, nobody voted in the European Union referendum to make themselves poorer. If the shadow Chancellor wants to walk through the Lobby with the Conservatives to take us out of the customs union and the single market, I certainly do not agree with him on that. I have been elected to represent a constituency that...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Ian Murray: That is exactly what Michel Barnier said. The Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union wants a Canada-plus-plus-plus deal with a special arrangement for banks, and the chief negotiator has said that that is impossible for two reasons. It is against the red lines that the Government have already drawn for themselves, so they are arguing against their own policy. Indeed, we already...
