Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (19 Nov 2019)

Peter Chapman: I had not quite finished, but I will bow to your greater knowledge and finish there. Thank you. I move amendment S5M-19922.2, to insert at end: “, and recognises the opportunities that leaving the EU and Common Fisheries Policy presents for the Scottish fishing industry.”

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (19 Nov 2019)

Peter Chapman: I have never, ever said that that would happen “overnight”, and I have never spoken to a fisherman in the north-east who expects it to happen overnight. Over time, however, it certainly will happen.

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Products (United States Tariffs) (14 Nov 2019)

Peter Chapman: Thank you, Deputy Presiding Officer. I will try to stick to the subject of the motion, unlike the last speech that we heard. I welcome the opportunity to speak about the implications of the imposition of US tariffs on Scottish products. As we know, on 18 October, the US Government applied a 25 per cent tariff on some British food and drink exports.

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Products (United States Tariffs) (14 Nov 2019)

Peter Chapman: President Trump has stated that EU support for Airbus impacts on American jobs, and the US trade representative has defended the President’s actions and accused Europe of “providing massive subsidies to Airbus that have seriously injured the U.S. aerospace industry and our workers.” Following the ruling, the WTO allowed the US to impose tariffs on £7.5 billion of goods that it imports...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Products (United States Tariffs) (14 Nov 2019)

Peter Chapman: Pardon? Johnstons of Elgin, which is the largest manufacturer of knitwear in the UK, will also be adversely affected by the imposition of a 25 per cent tariff. The US is its third largest market, and its chief executive, Simon Cotton, has said: “This is going to hit consumers in the US, their cashmere will be more expensive. That in turn means we will be able to export less, grow less and...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Products (United States Tariffs) (14 Nov 2019)

Peter Chapman: Brexit will be done before the end of next January. Scotland, and the north-east in particular, will be hugely adversely affected by decisions that are made in Brussels rather than here in the UK. The UK’s single largest trading nation is the United States, accounting for 16 per cent of all UK exports. We must fully grasp the opportunity of a trade deal with the US post-Brexit, maximise the...

Scottish Parliament: Dairy Contracts (Aberdeenshire) (7 Nov 2019)

Peter Chapman: I declare an interest as a partner in a farming business. Is the First Minister aware of the serious situation facing 14 dairy farmers in Aberdeenshire? They comprise the bulk of the dairy industry north of Aberdeen, and they have been told by their milk buyer, Müller, that they have one year to find a new buyer, after which their contracts will cease. There is no obvious processor to take...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Regulations (Standards and Protections) (7 Nov 2019)

Peter Chapman: I declare an interest: I am a farmer. The UK has led the way on standards, as far as animal welfare and environmental issues are concerned, for a long number of years and there is no reason to believe that that will change, post-Brexit. Our standards could rise, post-Brexit. Does the minister recognise that?

Scottish Parliament: Agriculture Support (Convergence Money) (7 Nov 2019)

Peter Chapman: 2. Presiding Officer, do I have to declare an interest again?

Scottish Parliament: Agriculture Support (Convergence Money) (7 Nov 2019)

Peter Chapman: Well, I will. I am a partner in a farming business. To ask the Scottish Government how it proposes to spend the £160 million in convergence money to support agriculture. (S5O-03720)

Scottish Parliament: Agriculture Support (Convergence Money) (7 Nov 2019)

Peter Chapman: We have established that £13 million of hard-won convergence money has been used to replace less favoured area support scheme funds that were taken from the budget and spent on other things by Derek Mackay. We also know that £10 million of extra funding to crofting communities has been borrowed from the second tranche of £80 million that is due next year. I am very concerned that the...

Scottish Parliament: UN Year of Indigenous Languages and European Day of Languages (6 Nov 2019)

Peter Chapman: I thank Angus MacDonald for lodgin the langest motion that I have ever seen. Like Stewart Stevenson, I must say that I have never seen a motion as long. For once in my life, I have not written a speech. I just thought I would stand up here and spik—I hope that I can dae that. I am absolutely delighted tae hae the opportunity tae spik in my natural language. I was born and bred and brocht up...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Farming Funding (Convergence Funds) (31 Oct 2019)

Peter Chapman: I declare an interest as a partner in a family business and as a member of NFU Scotland. I thank the cabinet secretary for prior sight of his statement. We all celebrated the successful campaign by our Conservative MPs to repatriate the £160 million from Westminster. [ Interruption .]

Scottish Parliament: European Union Farming Funding (Convergence Funds) (31 Oct 2019)

Peter Chapman: It is absolutely genuine. I also applaud the fact that the £80 million has been delivered to Scotland much earlier than expected. It is, indeed, good to get some extra money out to our hard-working farmers. However, I am deeply concerned that an announcement as to how the money is to be spent was made to the press, and not to Parliament. On Tuesday, there was no ministerial statement on the...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Farming Funding (Convergence Funds) (31 Oct 2019)

Peter Chapman: That is money that the Scottish Government received, and which has now been disgracefully raided by Derek Mackay for other purposes.
