Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: White Paper (18 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: What discussions he has had with the Welsh Government on the UK Government’s White Paper on leaving the EU.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: White Paper (18 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: The Government have proposed 26 policy areas where joint arrangements will be necessary with the Welsh Government after Brexit. Given the proposal in the Chequers agreement and the White Paper for a common rulebook with the EU, in how many of those areas will such arrangements no longer be necessary?

Electoral Commission Investigation: Vote Leave (17 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: The Government are presiding over crisis and chaos as they drag the country towards an exercise in collective self-harm on an unprecedented scale. They are doing that on the back of a campaign that was morally questionable, based as it was on mobilising fear and prejudice, and politically questionable, based as it was on glib half-truths and lies, and we now know that it was a campaign that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Legislative Consent (11 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: I am keen to get some clarity on the Secretary of State’s discussions with the Scottish Government and the debate at Chequers last Friday. Given that the Chequers agreement talks about a free trade area and a common rulebook, and therefore impacts directly on the areas that were discussed in respect of joint arrangements after Brexit, will he confirm that the content of that agreement...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Legislative Consent (11 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: I will take that as a no, then, which is beyond disappointing. The Secretary of State continues his disrespect for devolution. Given that the Government are changing their entire direction with respect to this matter, will he commit today to consulting the Scottish Government and coming to an agreement with them on how to administer things in Scotland after Brexit?

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Elections: Campaigns (10 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, with reference to the June 2018 report of the Electoral Commission, Digital Campaigning: Increasing Transparency for Voters, whether he plans to bring forward legislative proposals on its recommendation that (a) online materials produced by parties, candidates and campaigners have an imprint stating who has created them and (b) spending categories...

Equal Franchise Act 1928 — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (5 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Buck. I thank the hon. Member for Canterbury (Rosie Duffield) for bringing this debate to the House and giving me the opportunity to speak on the subject today. We have spent a lot of time this year marking the anniversaries of universal suffrage. Every time I think about this, what I find remarkable is not how long ago it was, but how...

Equal Franchise Act 1928 — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (5 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: Indeed. It would probably be unfair to expect the Cabinet Office Minister to respond to that point on behalf of the Government, but perhaps she will commit to take it back to discuss with colleagues. It would be remiss of me to speak on behalf of the Scottish National party without saying something about the many great women who have contributed much to the politics not just of Scotland but...

Equal Franchise Act 1928 — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (5 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: Yes. I am not saying that we should necessarily copy the Labour party rulebook, but a similar objective and similar mechanisms should certainly be put in place. We have something similar in my party, although not for every seat. Many seats that we do not hold are designated as all-women shortlists so a female candidate is selected. In Scotland, that has resulted in 43% of the governing party,...

Amesbury Incident (5 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: I thank the Home Secretary for advance sight of his statement. As others have said, our immediate thoughts are with Charlie Rowley and Dawn Sturgess, whom we wish a very speedy and full recovery. They are completely innocent victims in this whole affair. I endorse the statements that have been made about our support for the emergency services; we can only wonder about the concern that they...

Opposition Day - [15TH Allotted Day, 1ST Part]Opposition Day: Claim of Right for Scotland (4 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: I find it rather interesting that, in the course of a debate of almost three hours, we have not heard anyone speak against the notion of the claim of right. However, I caution colleagues against being deluded by any faux agreement on this matter, because I am confident that many Members who are not in the Chamber tonight would find it presumptuous that a group of citizens in one part of this...

Opposition Day - [15TH Allotted Day, 1ST Part]Opposition Day: Claim of Right for Scotland (4 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: I think that the hon. Gentleman might have prepared that better. The point I was making is that, in effect, such an arrangement will make Scotland—and Wales and Northern Ireland for that matter—subservient to the will of the Government in this place, which is contrary to the whole spirit of devolution. Twenty years ago, when the architects of devolution—Donald Dewar in this...

Opposition Day - [15TH Allotted Day, 1ST Part]Opposition Day: Claim of Right for Scotland (4 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: I fear we are running out of time, so I will not take the hon. Gentleman’s intervention. Many Members have talked about the 2014 referendum and the idea—my leader expressed this so well in his opening remarks—that for those 15 hours on 18 September 2014, sovereignty was genuinely in the hands of the people of Scotland. They had a choice to make between two alternative...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Demolition of Khan al-Ahmar (4 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: We have now been discussing this for 50 minutes, and I have yet to hear the Minister state a single practical action that the Government propose in response to this atrocity. Like others in this House, I do not doubt his sincerity, but I am alarmed by his reticence to do something about it. The Minister has hinted that the Government are considering further measures, and he has alluded to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: If she will list her official engagements for Wednesday 4 July.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: The Scotland Act 2016 transferred responsibility for the Crown Estate in Scotland to the Scottish Government, but a large retail park in my constituency called Fort Kinnaird was exempted from the transfer on the grounds that it was tied up with a private joint venture. Last month, the Government sold the Crown Estate’s interests in Fort Kinnaird for the receipt of £167 million, but...

Written Answers — Treasury: Fort Kinnaird: Sales (3 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, pursuant to the Answer of 26 June 2018 to Question 156466, on Fort Kinnaird: Sales, in what ways the revenue from the sale of the Crown Estate’s interest in Fort Kinnaird is planned to be used for the benefit of the UK as a whole.

Written Answers — Treasury: Fort Kinnaird: Sales (26 Jun 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what steps he is taking to ensure that the Scottish Government receives a share of the sale to a private company of Fort Kinnaird.

Written Answers — Treasury: Fort Kinnaird: Sales (26 Jun 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, when his Department began discussions with M&G Estates on the sale of Fort Kinnaird.
