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

David Duguid: Q One more question, if I may. Going back to what you were saying earlier, I think your exact words were along the lines of “Unfortunately, quotas have become a commodity.” With quotas being sellable and buyable, they are an asset, at least. If quotas were to be more fairly distributed among the smaller vessels in future, how would you avoid them just becoming sellable commodities,...

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

David Duguid: Q Still on the subject of fisheries protection, you mentioned airborne surveillance earlier. One of the questions that fishermen in my constituency keep asking is: how does the eye in the sky seeing something wrong—somebody shooting their nets where they should not be shooting their nets, or whatever it is—turn into some kind of enforcement or some kind of actual protection, particularly...

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

David Duguid: Q Thank you, Mr Hanson. Mr Brown, there has been a lot of talk today about the ownership of quotas. As Mr Carmichael said earlier, if we were to design this again from scratch, we would not start from where we are. A lot of what you describe sounds like it might work if you were starting from scratch, but I cannot help but feel a bit squeamish about the idea of taking something away from...

Exiting the European Union: Fishing Policy (6 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: What recent discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs on fishing policy after the UK leaves the EU.

Exiting the European Union: Fishing Policy (6 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: When we leave the EU, we leave the common fisheries policy and become an independent coastal state. We therefore need to enter upon a new fisheries agreement with the EU, just like Norway, Iceland and the Faroe Islands. Does my hon. Friend agree that Ministers and officials from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs should, with input from stakeholders across the fisheries...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witnesses (6 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: Earlier, you talked about how the likes of Norway, Iceland and others have been looked on with envy in negotiations, probably not just by us, but by other EU member states. In the future, as an independent coastal state, when we end up in those negotiations with that increased power, what role do you see Ministers and officials from devolved Assemblies playing, and how well is that covered in...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witnesses (6 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: Q Do you think the role of the devolved Administrations is adequately covered in the Bill?

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of witness (6 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: On the redistribution of quota, obviously, if you are a larger owner of quota versus a smaller owner of quota, or an owner of no quota, you will certainly feel that you are going to be worse off in this situation. How do you cater for the fact that a lot of the smaller vessel owners perhaps previously owned quota that they sold, benefiting greatly financially, and then moved into smaller...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witness (6 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: Q On the science, one of the major frustrations—I was going to use the word “criticisms”, but that is too strong—I hear from fishermen is that the science tends to be at least two years old by the time it is actually applied, and they are seeing more fish in their nets or in the water than they are told to expect. Is there any way we can make the science more current, or is there...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witness (6 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: Q Do you think the Bill creates an opportunity to do that?

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witnesses (6 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: Q You started off by talking about the local fisheries management, which was very interesting. Harking back to what Dr O’Brien said about the data and how, by the time you have collected it all from the whole country, a lot of it will be out of date, do you think the local fisheries management approach would help that agility in making sure that the data is more up to date, particularly if...

UK Fishing Industry — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (12 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this important debate. We both talk a lot to Bertie Armstrong—I spoke to him on Monday. In the quote she repeated, she is absolutely correct about what Bertie Armstrong and other members of the Scottish Fishermen’s Federation have said: nobody is taking anything for granted, and we must continue to fight our case in future negotiations. Bertie...

UK Fishing Industry — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (12 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Henry, and I will try to be as quick as I can. I again congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for South East Cornwall (Mrs Murray) on securing this debate, which is about a subject that I know is very close to her own heart as well as being a key industry in her constituency. Fishing at least has been, if it is not now, the lifeblood of...

UK Fishing Industry — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (12 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for his intervention. Of course, there is nothing in the withdrawal agreement that specifically states that any shares will be given up. As my hon. Friend the Member for South East Cornwall said earlier, we should start from the default position of, “We have full access and that is our access to negotiate in the annual negotiations going forward.” I will...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Sea fishing licences: further provision (13 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: As the right hon. Gentleman and the Minister know, many of the concerns that the right hon. Gentleman raises would be shared by pelagic fishermen in my constituency as well. Clearly, they can, and choose to, land in Norway, Denmark and other places for economic and logistical reasons. Does he agree that if the Government or the Scottish Government or other devolved Administrations want to...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Distribution of fishing opportunities (13 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: I sympathise with the requirement to allow new entrants to get into the industry by giving them access to the quota, and I was thankful to hear the hon. Gentleman say that his amendment does not propose to rob Peter to pay Paul—or rob Peterhead to pay Plymouth, for that matter. However, when we discussed safety, it was mentioned that fishermen whose vessels are slightly more than 10 metres...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Broadband and Mobile Phones: Rural Areas (14 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what steps he is taking to improve broadband and mobile phone coverage in rural areas.

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Commencement (17 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that there is no an overnight solution? We cannot just go to the local jobcentre and get a bunch of unemployed people; as the shadow Minister said, fishing is not an unskilled job. Does the right hon. Gentleman agree with the chief executive of the Scottish White Fish Producers Association that it could take up to 10 years at least to get to a point where...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Commencement (17 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: As the shadow Minister noted, as we leave the EU we will no longer have freedom of movement, but is it not the case, certainly in Scotland, that the vast majority of the foreign workers that the fishing industry is dependent on comes from outside the European economic area?

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Commencement (17 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hanson. Amendment 1 is a probing amendment relating to a concern raised by several hon. Members—[Interruption.] Give me a second to finish my first paragraph, and then I will give way to the hon. Member for Kilmarnock and Loudoun. The concern has been raised by hon. Members including those who tabled the amendment—my hon. Friends the...
