United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 132 (2 Nov 2020)

Lord Dunlop: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Humphreys, and to participate in the debate on Clause 48 and the financial assistance power in the Bill. I want to offer a further Scottish perspective. I welcome the intent of Clause 48. The UK Government should be able to invest in all parts of the UK on initiatives that support and strengthen the union. I also recognise the...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 5 (26 Oct 2020)

Lord Dunlop: My Lords, I support the group of amendments tabled by the noble and learned Lord, Lord Hope. They address a central question: how does this Bill sit alongside the common frameworks process? Common frameworks are the process established to ensure that once the UK has left the EU’s legal orbit, policy and regulatory divergence does not damage the seamless operation of the UK’s domestic...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 4 (26 Oct 2020)

Lord Dunlop: My Lords, I want to comment on some of the issues raised by the amendment. It is useful in that, so far as this Bill is concerned, it draws attention to—if I may put it this way—the dog that did not bark. The dog in this case is the agreement reached at the Joint Ministerial Committee in October 2017, between the UK Government, the Scottish and Welsh Governments and the senior civil...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (19 Oct 2020)

Lord Dunlop: My Lords, I declare my interests as independent reviewer of the UK Government’s union capability and as a member of your Lordships’ Constitution Committee, whose detailed report on the Bill I commend, like others, to the House. I doubt there is anyone in this House who does not support the goal of ensuring our UK domestic market continues to work seamlessly at the end of the EU transition...

Fisheries Bill [HL] - Second Reading (11 Feb 2020)

Lord Dunlop: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Viscount and to support the Bill, which enables the UK to be, in the Prime Minister’s words, “an independent coastal state from the end of this year, controlling our own waters”. While the Bill is not directly about the negotiations to come with the EU, it provides the legal framework for the future of fisheries management and is therefore...

Northern Ireland Executive Formation - Statement (16 Jan 2020)

Lord Dunlop: My Lords, I add my voice to the warm welcome for the restoration of the devolved institutions in Northern Ireland and for a common programme for government that focuses on the priorities of the people of Northern Ireland. Does my noble friend agree that, to achieve better results, the Executive need to operate in less of a departmental, siloed way and adopt a greater sense of collective...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (8 Jan 2020)

Lord Dunlop: My Lords, it is great pleasure to follow my Constitution Committee colleague, the noble Lord, Lord Hennessy. As we have already heard in the debate, the union will inevitably loom large in this new Parliament. The gracious Speech rightly recognises the importance the Government attach to the integrity and prosperity of the United Kingdom, acknowledging that constitutional and economic...

Preparing Legislation for Parliament (Constitution Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (12 Jun 2019)

Lord Dunlop: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow my noble friend Lord Cormack. I am afraid that I cannot compete with his 50 years of service. Nevertheless, I also support the remarks of my noble friend Lord Norton of Louth, particularly his recognition of the hard work and support that we get from our committee staff, which is hugely appreciated. Today’s debate could not be timelier. In the 19th...

Schools: Swimming and Life-saving Skills - Question for Short Debate (6 Mar 2019)

Lord Dunlop: My Lords, first, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Storey, on securing this short debate and on the thoughtful way in which he introduced it. I declare my interest as a board member of Scottish Swimming. The benefits of sport to physical and mental well-being are well documented and beyond dispute. This is particularly true of swimming, which is one of those sports that can be enjoyed at...

Brexit: Stability of the Union - Motion to Take Note (17 Jan 2019)

Lord Dunlop: My Lords, it is a real pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Lisvane. He and I made our maiden speeches on the same day and he speaks with the greatest authority on constitutional matters. Brexit raises fundamental issues, not least the question of trust in democratic institutions here and right across Europe. It is absolutely right, therefore, to consider afresh governance within the UK....

Brexit: Stability of the Union - Motion to Take Note (17 Jan 2019)

Lord Dunlop: Attention should be paid to the machinery of intergovernmental relations, which needs to be strengthened. We also need to look at the cross-UK synergies, weakened since devolution, which need to be reinvigorated. We need to pursue a decentralised, pan-UK strategy for rebalancing the economy, driven by city regions across the country. This means moving away from seeing everything through a...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation and Exercise of Functions) Bill - Second Reading (30 Oct 2018)

Lord Dunlop: My Lords, I rise to support this Bill—the fifth piece of fast-track Northern Ireland legislation this Session. I confess that I do so with a slightly heavy heart, because legislating this way is far from ideal, as the Constitution Committee— of which I am a member—points out in its report. However, I sympathise with the Government’s predicament. Last year, as a Minister in the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (9th Day) (Continued): Amendment 302B (to Amendment 302A) (21 Mar 2018)

Lord Dunlop: My Lords, the hazard of speaking late in a debate is that, in the interests of brevity, you have to shred your speech; none the less, I hope that what I am about to say is still coherent. It would be hard to deny that since 2010 significant powers have been devolved to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. As more powers are devolved from Westminster, it becomes ever more important to attend...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (31 Jan 2018)

Lord Dunlop: My Lords, I should start by confessing my membership of the Constitution Committee. I say “confess” because, as the noble Lord, Lord Beith, mentioned, Monday’s Daily Mail took the committee to task to some degree, describing it as a committee filled with “Remoaners”. As noble Lords may imagine, this came as something of a shock to me. I had not before realised this until I read it...

Devolution (Constitution Committee Reports) - Motion to Take Note (9 Oct 2017)

Lord Dunlop: My Lords, I thank the noble Lords, Lord Lang and Lord Jay, for the way in which they introduced the debate. I welcome my noble friend Lord Duncan to the Front Bench and I look forward to his maiden speech. He has certainly been busy in the last four months, consulting groups across Scotland. As his immediate predecessor, I did the same thing. My progress across Scotland was always...
