Public Bill Committee: Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill: Examination of Witness (28 Jun 2022)

David Duguid: Thank you, Dr Tinch, it was very interesting to hear your perspective on that. I listened very carefully to your responses to Ms Brock about the time it would take for multiple generations to become viable and to get access to market. In terms of investment here and now, or at least in the shorter term, in research and development, we have heard from other witnesses about the attraction of...

Public Bill Committee: Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill: Examination of Witness (28 Jun 2022)

David Duguid: Q I think you have answered the question, but just a yes or no: do you think that this legislation would lead to more investment in research and development in agriculture in the UK?

Public Bill Committee: Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill: Clause 48 - Short title and commencement (7 Jul 2022)

David Duguid: I just want to clarify, should we be surprised that the United Kingdom Government are interested in the rural interests of every nation in the United Kingdom?

Public Bill Committee: Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill: Clause 3 - Restrictions on release of precision bred organism in England (5 Jul 2022)

David Duguid: Further to the question of my hon. Friend the Member for Brecon and Radnorshire, I am struggling to see where the evidence is that, through the passage of the Bill, our animal welfare standards, which are covered by other legislation, would somehow be cancelled out.

Energy (Oil and Gas) Profits Levy Bill: Clause 1 - Charge to tax (11 Jul 2022)

David Duguid: I rise in response to the hon. Member for Kilmarnock and Loudoun (Alan Brown). I declare an interest: I used to work for BP. I worked in the oil and gas industry for 25 years. I worked for BP in the North sea in this country, and in Angola, Venezuela and a range of different places. I worked for other companies in other countries as well. It is true that these companies have made their...

Energy (Oil and Gas) Profits Levy Bill: Clause 1 - Charge to tax (11 Jul 2022)

David Duguid: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

International Trade: Topical Questions (21 Jul 2022)

David Duguid: If she will make a statement on her departmental responsibilities.

International Trade: Topical Questions (21 Jul 2022)

David Duguid: We have heard today about the value of agricultural shows across our United Kingdom, not least in my constituency where we had the New Deer show last weekend and we have the Turriff show, the largest two-day agricultural show in Scotland, at the end of the month. They provide a huge opportunity to showcase the wonderful Scottish food and drink that we have to offer. Will my right hon. Friend...

Net Zero Strategy: High Court Ruling (21 Jul 2022)

David Duguid: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I did wonder if I had managed to catch your eye. Will my right hon. Friend confirm that this Government, whoever leads them after the summer, will remain committed to the net zero by 2050 target, given that, as he rightly said, in successive hustings, all candidates confirmed their commitment to maintaining that target? Will he also confirm that the UK oil and gas...

Tackling Short-term and Long-term Cost of Living Increases (17 May 2022)

David Duguid: I genuinely thank the hon. Member for giving way. It is two or three short months since I welcomed his stance against Labour’s calls for a windfall tax, but putting that aside, he quoted Bernard Looney, the chief executive of BP. Is he aware that, as well as saying that currently committed investments would not be at risk from a windfall tax, Bernard Looney has also said that future...

Tributes to Her Late Majesty the Queen (10 Sep 2022)

David Duguid: I rise with humility and sadness on behalf of myself and the people of Banff and Buchan to pay tribute to Her late Majesty the Queen. I also offer my condolences to King Charles III and the royal family, as we remember that they have lost a mother, a grandmother and a great-grandmother. For most of us, Her Majesty has always been a continuing and reassuring presence. From the ashes of the...

Written Answers — Scotland Office: Innovation and Spaceflight: Scotland (12 Oct 2022)

David Duguid: The UK Government is working closely with colleagues in the Scottish Government, and with innovation and enterprise agencies, to maximise the opportunities offered by launch from Scotland - and ensure the benefits are shared across the UK. Scotland Office Ministers attended the Farnborough Airshow in July, meeting with a number of industry stakeholders with a large footprint in Scotland,...

Written Answers — Scotland Office: Ports: Disease Control (12 Oct 2022)

David Duguid: Through the Port Infrastructure Fund, the UK Government has provided over £600,000 to Cairnryan and Loch Ryan to build the infrastructure needed for customs and biosecurity checks. And while biosecurity is the responsibility of the Scottish Government, our two Governments work together to ensure that biosecurity is maintained.

Scotland: Cost of Living (12 Oct 2022)

David Duguid: The Government fully recognise that families, households and businesses are worried about rising costs. That is why we have taken decisive action to get families and businesses through this winter and next, and we are focused on growing the economy to raise living standards for everyone.

Scotland: Cost of Living (12 Oct 2022)

David Duguid: The UK, like Europe and other countries around the world, has been forced to respond decisively to the challenges posed by high energy prices resulting from, among other things, Russia’s weaponisation of energy markets. Because of action taken by this Government, the most vulnerable households will get at least £1,200—some much more—of cost of living support this year on top of the...

Scotland: Cost of Living (12 Oct 2022)

David Duguid: Again, it will come as no surprise that I do not totally agree with everything that an hon. Member said. The hon. Lady asked about raising benefits in line with inflation. The Secretary of State for Work and Pensions is looking at that—as she would do on an annual basis in any case—and will announce in due course the decision on benefits uprating.

Scotland: Cost of Living (12 Oct 2022)

David Duguid: The hon. Lady makes excellent points. On making representations to my ministerial colleagues, having been in this post for a very short time, I have not quite got there yet, but these discussions are happening. Under the agreed fiscal framework, the Scottish Government, through the levers that they have, will receive an estimated £340 million of additional funding as a result of just the...

Scotland: Cost of Living (12 Oct 2022)

David Duguid: The hon. Gentleman is probably aware that the Government have committed to reversing the planned corporation tax increase from 19%, so it is staying at 19%, which will attract businesses to Scotland and across the rest of the United Kingdom. It is often missed that the Government have delivered on top of the recently announced energy price guarantee. It means that typical households receiving...

Scotland: Cost of Living (12 Oct 2022)

David Duguid: I welcome the hon. Gentleman to his place instead of the shadow Secretary of State, the hon. Member for Edinburgh South (Ian Murray). As I said, the energy support put in place means that a typical household will not pay more than £2,500. That is on top of the additional benefits that were announced earlier this year and more recently and which will make sure that many households, including...

Scotland: Cost of Living (12 Oct 2022)

David Duguid: The hon. Member is absolutely correct to point out the Scottish Government’s commitment, made back in 2017, to have created a nationalised energy company in Scotland by now. That has not happened, and quite frankly I do not think that it should. I do not think that Labour’s plans should be implemented either.
