Finance (No. 3) Bill (12 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: I am sure the hon. Gentleman will join me in welcoming the commitment of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy not only in at least considering the sector deal for oil and gas, but, on the subject of carbon capture and storage, in looking at a project in St Fergus, just off the coast of Peterhead in my constituency. It looks like being part of a Scotland-wide cluster,...

EU Exit Negotiations (15 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: My constituents and I welcome my right hon. Friend’s repeated and consistent commitment that we will be leaving the CFP. Of course, being out of the EU means that we are out of the CFP in the same way that being in the EU—the policy of the Scottish National party and others—means being in the CFP. [Interruption.] You know it does. Will my right hon. Friend also commit that unfettered...

Petition - Home Education: Draft Guidance and the Consultation: Community Broadband Schemes (15 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: I am following my hon. Friend’s speech with great interest. He represents Stirling and we all think of Stirling as being the city of Stirling but it is a large rural constituency much like my constituency of Banff and Buchan, and we face similar issues, as we have discussed. We are often told that what we have to overcome are the technical, geographical and topographical issues, but these...

Fisheries Bill (21 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: I should like to associate myself with my hon. Friend’s comments in paying tribute to the various associations and organisations that support our fishermen. Does she agree that there is no precedent anywhere for access to a third country’s natural resources forming part of a trade agreement?

Fisheries Bill (21 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: Thank you very much, Madam Deputy Speaker; I appreciate that, as I had already tried to pare down my speech to the 10 minutes suggested earlier. It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Na h -Eileanan an Iar (Angus Brendan MacNeil). As he mentioned, he, the right hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr Carmichael), the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon), who unusually is not in...

Fisheries Bill (21 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his comments. I will get to that point a little later. The Fisheries Bill itself, and the White Paper before it, has been welcomed by organisations across the industry, including the Scottish Fishermen’s Federation. This vital legislation lays the groundwork for the revival of our fishing industry outside the common fisheries policy. It is important to note...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Transition to Civilian Life (26 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: What steps his Department is taking to support service personnel in making the transition to civilian life.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Transition to Civilian Life (26 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: What discussions has my right hon. Friend had with the Office for National Statistics, or the Registrar General for Scotland, about the feasibility of adding the category “armed forces veteran” to the national census, to help us to identify the location of our veterans?

Leaving the EU (26 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: In response to my right hon. Friend’s statement, the right hon. Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber (Ian Blackford) claimed—predictably, I must say—that Scottish fishermen are being sold out somehow.

Leaving the EU (26 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: Not in the document. According to the chief executive of the Scottish Fishermen’s Federation, this deal does enable the UK to become “an independent Coastal State with full, unfettered sovereignty over our waters and natural resources.” Whom should I tell my constituents to believe?

Health and Social Care: GP Access: Learning Disabilities (27 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: Let me start by thanking my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for his support last Thursday on 22q Awareness Day; 22q11 deletion syndrome is second only to Down’s syndrome in its prevalence as a genetic condition, but perhaps surprisingly, there is a remarkably low level of awareness among GPs of this condition, which can lead to avoidable mental health issues in children. Will the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Legislative Consent Motions (28 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: What recent discussions he has had with the Scottish Government on the granting of legislative consent motions for legislation on the UK leaving the EU.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Legislative Consent Motions (28 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: The Fisheries Bill is one of the Bills that my right hon. Friend referred to; it lays the groundwork for the revival of fishing in Banff and Buchan and all along Scotland’s coastline, and what is more, it confers new powers on the ScottishGovernment. I know that the Scottish National party’s policy is to take us back into the common fisheries policy, but does he agree that they should...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Fishing Industry (29 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: Regardless of what happens in the coming days and weeks, we are going to become an independent coastal state, like Norway, Iceland and the Faroes. Like them, we will have to come to a fisheries agreement with the EU. Does my right hon. Friend agree that, in the negotiation of that agreement specifically, he and the officials in his Department should take the lead?

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witnesses (4 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: Going back to Mr Pollard’s question about UK vessels landing elsewhere, for example Norway, can you say a little about what motivates fishermen to land elsewhere? What changes are required in our ports or onshore infrastructure to make landing in the UK more attractive, and is that covered by the Bill?

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witnesses (4 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: Q So there is the favourable price that you might get from landing elsewhere, but is there something about the ports or the processing facilities, in Norway for example, that the UK needs to catch up on? Could we do something through the Bill to help improve that? When you mentioned money, I thought you were talking about investment in our onshore facilities as well as the price on the market.

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witness (4 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: Q I have anecdotal evidence that Dutch fishermen are currently catching about 80% of their small pelagic species in UK waters, and about 90% of that is being exported, with minimal processing, straight to west Africa. What can we do in this country to essentially cut out the middleman and make sure that the UK fleet is able to catch, land and export straight to these third countries?

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witness (4 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: Q Going back to what you said earlier about how the majority of our exports go to the EU, do you have any data on how much we export to the EU that is just minimally processed and further exported to third countries?

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witness (4 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: On access to market versus access to waters, I think you mentioned that there would be some exchange of access for quota in any future arrangement. I presume you would agree that it is important that, as an independent coastal state, we have full control of that access so that we can use it as leverage. I hesitate to use the phrase “bargaining chip”, but when we go into future annual...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witness (4 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: Q Is there anything in this Bill that you think we should focus on, in order to add more power to our elbow in those future negotiations?
