Covid-19: Economy Update (22 Oct 2020)

Deidre Brock: It is good to see the Chancellor has found the magic money tree of Tory myth and given it another shake, but the money needs to go to the self-employed, the smallest businesses and the poorest households. He will have total control of VAT soon. Will he look at cutting tax on household essentials? Will he target the support for job retention schemes at the smallest businesses, so they can...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Agricultural Imports (15 Oct 2020)

Deidre Brock: It was recently revealed that the UK Government withheld information from the devolved Administrations about the risk of food shortages at the end of the transition period. How was the Department involved in discussions on that risk, and why were such vital assumptions, which the documents acknowledged would impact on devolved Administrations’ planning, hidden from them for so long?

Fisheries Bill [Lords]: New Clause 8 - Agency arrangements between sea fish licensing authorities (13 Oct 2020)

Deidre Brock: There are always conditions attached to interventions when the hon. Gentleman allows them—very male, Madam Deputy Speaker. He clearly has ambitions to one day lead in the Scottish Parliament and become the First Minister of Scotland. He always references his constituency and the fact that a large percentage of his constituents voted for Brexit, but when will he accept that Scotland voted...

Fisheries Bill [Lords]: New Clause 8 - Agency arrangements between sea fish licensing authorities (13 Oct 2020)

Deidre Brock: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I have just had to endure a personal attack from the hon. Member for Moray (Douglas Ross). I was making the point that if he wants to make those sorts of attacks, he has to be prepared to take it.

Fisheries Bill [Lords]: New Clause 8 - Agency arrangements between sea fish licensing authorities (13 Oct 2020)

Deidre Brock: I think the hon. Lady is well aware of the SNP’s policy towards the re-entry of an independent Scotland into the EU, but I remind her that the Scottish Government have called the CFP “the EU’s most unpopular and discredited policy”, so we would certainly be starting negotiations from that point. The National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations sent out a briefing in advance of...

Fisheries Bill [Lords]: New Clause 8 - Agency arrangements between sea fish licensing authorities (13 Oct 2020)

Deidre Brock: All from the devolved authorities would like to see that, and the hon. Lady will recall that at the recent roundtable discussion between the National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations and the Scottish Fishermen’s Federation the Minister said that a consultation will be taking place on the distribution of quotas between the devolved authorities. We are certainly looking forward to...

Fisheries Bill [Lords]: New Clause 8 - Agency arrangements between sea fish licensing authorities (13 Oct 2020)

Deidre Brock: I assure the hon. Gentleman that that is something the Scottish Government are taking in hand at the moment. We recognise that some sort of legislative framework is needed and we have all heard the fears that there might not be time, even now, to put in place all the fishing legislation that is required, but my view is that the Bill is not what is needed. There is a shortfall between the...

Fisheries Bill [Lords]: New Clause 8 - Agency arrangements between sea fish licensing authorities (13 Oct 2020)

Deidre Brock: I rise to speak to new clauses 1 to 7 and amendment 57 tabled by the Scottish National party. It is notable that when Brexit negotiations ran into trouble recently the first concession that the Prime Minister’s hand-picked negotiator reached for was fishing. Straight off the bat, fishing was first to be sacrificed. It will be for a few years at first, but there will be more, step after...

Agriculture Bill: Clause 4 - Multi-annual financial assistance plans (12 Oct 2020)

Deidre Brock: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Tiverton and Honiton (Neil Parish), who made a passionate speech. I rise principally to speak in support of amendment 16, although I will have a few words to say about the missing amendment 18. Amendments such as Lords amendments 9 on a national food strategy, and 11 on pesticides, are clearly devolved matters and properly decided by our...
