Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Devolution (11 Jul 2018)

Gavin Newlands: What recent discussions he has had with the Scottish Government on the devolution of powers to the Scottish Parliament.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Devolution (11 Jul 2018)

Gavin Newlands: I am sure that they are very grateful for that. The Secretary of State has said: “The UK Government will continue working closely with the Scottish Government and other devolved administrations to develop a fishing policy that works for the whole of the UK.” In reality, they were shown a copy of the White Paper with no consultation. Will he please define “working closely”?

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Continued participation in the European Arrest Warrant (10 Jul 2018)

Gavin Newlands: Further to that point of order, Mrs Main. This is for the hat-trick. Thank you for allowing us to sit without ties. I thank you and Ms Ryan for chairing the Committee and for being so patient with us at certain times. I thank the Clerks, the Doorkeepers and the various officials. I add my thanks to the witnesses who came to the oral evidence session and those who submitted written evidence...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Border Security (10 Jul 2018)

Gavin Newlands: I beg to move amendment 24, in schedule 3, page 46, line 37, at end insert, “provided that the person is at all times able to consult with a solicitor in private.”

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Border Security (10 Jul 2018)

Gavin Newlands: It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair again this morning, Mrs Main. We have already had a wide-ranging debate on schedule 3, with more to come. Amendments 24 and 25 would delete provisions in the Bill that restrict access to a lawyer for those detained under schedule 3. Specifically, they would retain the right of an individual to be able to consult their legal representative in private,...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Border Security (10 Jul 2018)

Gavin Newlands: In the debate on the previous group of amendments, I indicated that I would keep my powder dry until this group. I have listened carefully to the Minister, but in making the point that each suspect should be able to consult a lawyer of their choosing, he seems to be arguing against some of the provisions in his own Bill. For that reason, I wish to press my amendment.

Business of the House: Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill (9 Jul 2018)

Gavin Newlands: I rise, rather reluctantly, to speak in this debate. We can all agree that, although it is sadly all too necessary, this budget debate should not be taking place in this House, and certainly that these matters should not be determined by politicians from Scotland, England and Wales. My sympathy is with the people of Northern Ireland who, in being denied their own devolved Assembly, have been...

Business of the House: Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill (9 Jul 2018)

Gavin Newlands: I will not be drawn into that argument. It takes both sides to get around the table and agree a way forward. I hope that during her Third Reading speech the Secretary of State will outline what recent work has been carried out to bring the parties back round the table and what is preventing this from happening. Can she confirm that all the main parties in Northern Ireland have not only viewed...

Business of the House: Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill (9 Jul 2018)

Gavin Newlands: As I have indicated, I have no intention of getting involved in internal political matters in Northern Ireland. That is for the right hon. Gentleman and his colleagues to resolve, along with the UK Government. In conclusion, the people of Northern Ireland will continue to be failed as long as some of their own politicians fail to negotiate a deal and this Government fight among themselves...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Border security (5 Jul 2018)

Gavin Newlands: I have to say that I remain somewhat unconvinced by the Minister’s arguments, and we may choose to revisit some of these amendments on Report, but at this stage I will keep my powder dry until the next group of amendments. I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Border security (5 Jul 2018)

Gavin Newlands: I beg to move amendment 21, in schedule 3, page 46, line 17, leave out “and 26”.

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Border security (5 Jul 2018)

Gavin Newlands: The amendments would delete the provisions that restrict access to a lawyer for those detained under schedule 3 for the purpose of assessing whether they have engaged in hostile activity. However, in doing so, the amendments would add an important safeguard that would ensure that that would not apply if the examining officer reasonably believed that the time it would take to consult a...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Border security (5 Jul 2018)

Gavin Newlands: It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair again, Ms Ryan. I shall speak in support of new clause 2 and amendment 44. The new clause would largely do similar things, with an addition in our case. It would implement the recommendations of the Joint Committee on Human Rights and would require an officer to have reasonable grounds for suspecting that an individual is or has been concerned in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (5 Jul 2018)

Gavin Newlands: The east coast franchise is now run with the part publicly-owned London North Eastern Railway, and it is a major transport operation in Scotland. Despite that, the UK Government have not allowed any Scottish Government representation on the board. Will the Secretary of State rethink that, and commit to ensuring that the Scottish Government are represented on that vital piece of infrastructure?

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Retention of biometric data for counter-terrorism purposes etc (3 Jul 2018)

Gavin Newlands: In supporting the intention of the amendment, I shall briefly set out the differences in the devolved Administrations’ implementation of the Prevent strategy. The Prevent strategy is implemented in Scotland through Scottish public bodies. The delivery and implementation of Prevent in Scotland is overseen through Consent. There has always been a distinction between preventing terrorism,...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Retention of biometric data for counter-terrorism purposes etc (3 Jul 2018)

Gavin Newlands: Despite the Minister praying in aid the Biometrics Commissioner, I still do not buy the Minister’s comments or the strength of his argument about these provisions. However, despite the outrageous description by the hon. Member for Torfaen of my amendment as a blunt instrument, I am conscious that the Labour Front Bench has tabled an amendment in the next group that retains the Biometric...
