Point of Order: [Day 1] (14 Mar 2018)

David Duguid: I welcome the opportunity to speak in this debate. I start by responding to the hon. Member for North East Fife (Stephen Gethins), who said that 62% of the people in Scotland voted to remain in the EU. What they actually voted for was for the UK to remain in the EU, which is a totally different question. They did not vote for an independent Scotland to be in the EU. In fact, as I have said...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (8 Mar 2018)

David Duguid: The EU Commission’s position on fisheries has been widely reported in the last 24 hours. It states that “existing reciprocal access to fishing waters and resources should be maintained”. It also seems to suggest that any future trade deal will be heavily dependent on EU fishermen maintaining the current unfair access to British waters. Agreeing to this position is clearly unacceptable...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU (7 Mar 2018)

David Duguid: Last week, the Prime Minister met me and colleagues from our fishing constituencies around the UK, including Scotland. Does my right hon. Friend agree that the meeting highlighted how this Government are serious about realising the opportunity presented by Brexit, and reminded us that only this Government will take us out of the common fisheries policy?

Uk/EU Future Economic Partnership (5 Mar 2018)

David Duguid: I welcome my right hon. Friend’s commitment yet again to leave the common fisheries policy and the common agricultural policy—a commitment that is very welcome in my constituency in Scotland, which might surprise some Opposition Members. What impact does she think this new freedom will have on those sectors?

UK Fisheries Policy — [Mr Ian Paisley in the Chair] (27 Feb 2018)

David Duguid: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Paisley. I will try to keep my speech as brief as I can. Fortunately, many hon. and right hon. Members have already said a lot of what I was going to say. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for North Cornwall (Scott Mann) on securing today’s debate. It is great to see such a large turnout. Now is an exciting time for British...

Banks and Communities — [Mr Mike Gapes in the Chair] (11 Jan 2018)

David Duguid: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gapes, and I congratulate the hon. Member for East Lothian (Martin Whitfield) on securing the debate. I welcome the Minister to his new role and I look forward to working closely with him on this subject. I believe that meetings are being scheduled as I speak. The issue of banks in our communities is part of the wider issue of excessive...

Delivery Charges (Scotland) (20 Dec 2017)

David Duguid: I thank my hon. Friend for giving way and congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Moray (Douglas Ross) on securing this debate. As many of my colleagues on the Conservative side of the Chamber will remember, I have an issue with the word “remote”. Does my hon. Friend the Member for Ayr, Carrick and Cumnock (Bill Grant) agree that it is the lack of these services or the...

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

David Duguid: I welcome the opportunity to speak in this debate and congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for South East Cornwall (Mrs Murray) for securing it. I associate myself with pretty much all of her comments, particularly those on the emergency and rescue services, which the right hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr Carmichael) also mentioned. I want to express my gratitude to my right hon....

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Food and Drink Sector: Industrial Strategy (7 Dec 2017)

David Duguid: I thank my right hon. Friend for that answer. He will be more aware than most that, owing to the quality of the product, the seafood processing industry in my constituency is less concerned about access to markets after we leave the EU than it is about access to labour. What discussions has he had with representatives of the Scottish seafood processing industry or, indeed, the Home Office to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Joint Ministerial Committee (6 Dec 2017)

David Duguid: What progress the Joint Ministerial Committee (EU Negotiations) is making.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Joint Ministerial Committee (6 Dec 2017)

David Duguid: As my right hon. Friend will know, fishing is a totemic industry in my constituency of Banff and Buchan, where there is real concern that the Scottish Government want to take Scotland back into the common fisheries policy. Can he reassure me that in all conversations and negotiations in the JMC (EN), he stands firm on taking Scotland’s fisherman out of the CFP, and keeping them out?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

David Duguid: I welcome the opportunity to speak in this lively debate. I am here to represent all my constituents as best I can, not just those who voted for me and not just those who voted in 2016 to leave. It has been estimated that approximately 54% voted to leave, but I also represent those who continue to have concerns about what will happen after we leave the EU. I appreciate the concerns expressed...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

David Duguid: I do not recognise those concerns. As has been said by several hon. Members tonight, this is a matter of trust, and I accept that it is probably far easier for Scottish Members on the Government Benches to trust the Government to get on with the job of delivering the Bill as required. As I said, the leaders of the devolved Governments have an opportunity to help shape the UK’s exit from the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

David Duguid: The UK Government are interacting actively with the devolved Administrations, but it has to be recognised that it was the UK that voted to leave the EU and it is the UK that has the responsibility for the negotiations. It is disappointing that the SNP is attempting to undermine the progress made by its Ministers in Holyrood on working towards UK-wide frameworks that work for Scotland. Despite...

State Pension Age: Women: EU Nationals (29 Nov 2017)

David Duguid: My constituency of Banff and Buchan voted to leave the EU—

State Pension Age: Women: EU Nationals (29 Nov 2017)

David Duguid: That is according to University of East Anglia analysis; look it up. The constituency voted to leave, but it was not because the local people are hostile to immigrants. Indeed, immigrants from inside and outside the European Union are welcome and valued contributors to our community. There is no doubt that EU citizens make a great contribution to the economy of Banff and Buchan. One of our...

State Pension Age: Women: EU Nationals (29 Nov 2017)

David Duguid: I cannot give way, I am sorry. The prospect of needing more immigration in the area because we have more fish than we can catch and process is a welcome one. However, it is clear that there is a real need to develop our local workforce in the long term. That includes not only our own home-grown workforce, but the EU citizens and their children who have made their home here. That can be done...
