European Union (Withdrawal) Act: 1st Allotted Day (4 Dec 2018)

Stephen Gethins: The right hon. Member talks about an ideal situation. He was a senior member of Vote Leave. He was Foreign Secretary for two years. We are in this mess because of him. Does he take no responsibility?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Leaving the EU: Diplomatic Co-operation (4 Dec 2018)

Stephen Gethins: Climate change is the biggest challenge that we face, and one that we should perhaps spend more time discussing in this Chamber. Being able to take a common position with our EU partners on this has been an incredibly powerful diplomatic tool for pushing that message forward. I am sure that the Foreign Secretary will join me in welcoming the fact that the First Minister is in Poland—where...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Leaving the EU: Diplomatic Co-operation (4 Dec 2018)

Stephen Gethins: I thank the Foreign Secretary for his response. There is a concern that the UK is being left isolated in terms of Brexit and the broken relationship. In maintaining that common position as we go forward, will he commit to working as closely as we have done with our European partners? Additionally, in terms of our international ambitions, can Scotland help to act as a bridge between the UK and...

Delegated Legislation (Committees): Scotland’s Foreign Policy Footprint (3 Dec 2018)

Stephen Gethins: The Minister is quite right to commend officials in the Foreign Office. He mentioned “Inside the Foreign Office”; may I commend in particular those whom we saw advising the previous Foreign Secretary, the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson)? They were seen doing an excellent job in that programme. May I also welcome so many colleagues to the Chamber? It is a...

Delegated Legislation (Committees): Scotland’s Foreign Policy Footprint (3 Dec 2018)

Delegated Legislation (Committees): Scotland’s Foreign Policy Footprint (3 Dec 2018)

Delegated Legislation (Committees): Scotland’s Foreign Policy Footprint (3 Dec 2018)

Stephen Gethins: I am grateful for the opportunity provided by this Adjournment debate, which, happily, coincides with St Andrew’s Day last Friday. As well as being marked by Members from across the House, it was of course marked by millions throughout the world, including the tens of millions of Scots through birth, residency, ancestry or affinity. St Andrew’s Day is of course particularly important for...

Delegated Legislation (Committees): Scotland’s Foreign Policy Footprint (3 Dec 2018)

Stephen Gethins: I know it is very unusual for the hon. Gentleman to intervene in Adjournment debates, but I thank him for taking the time to do so this evening. I appreciate it. He makes a valid point, but sometimes we have a different foreign policy approach and others will take their own views. I wish to give some specific examples of how Scotland has perhaps taken a slightly different approach, but one...

Delegated Legislation (Committees): Scotland’s Foreign Policy Footprint (3 Dec 2018)

Stephen Gethins: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point. He has done some significant and worthwhile work to build and maintain the special relationship that exists between Scotland and Malawi. That is seen in the work not only of NGOs but of the Scottish Government in developing that relationship, going right back to the days of Livingstone and trying to use our history and common heritage to develop the...

Delegated Legislation (Committees): Scotland’s Foreign Policy Footprint (3 Dec 2018)

Stephen Gethins: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point. He is right to point to his constituency and the work that is done by Mary’s Meals. I would encourage anybody to read “Eastern Approaches” by Fitzroy Maclean, who was of course an MP who sat on the Conservative Benches. It is an excellent book, and he is also part of the links between Argyll and Bute and the former Yugoslavia. I fondly remember...
