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

David Duguid: I have heard comments from the Minister that reassure me to some extent, but as the hon. Gentleman knows other things are afoot that make it very difficult to pass this amendment right now. I will comment further on Report. This concern is shared not just by hon. Members but by the industry as a whole through representations from organisations including, but not limited to, the Scottish...

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

David Duguid: I am looking forward to the Minister’s response to the amendment. As the hon. Gentleman and the rest of the Committee know, a lot is happening—or not happening—at the moment, so we need to see what comes out of the next few weeks. I would be grateful if the Minister provided whatever assurance he can at this stage about how the Government will ensure that the CFP no longer applies to...

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

David Duguid: Before the Minister finishes, I want to take the opportunity to thank the right hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland for tempting me with the opportunity to do what might have seemed a slick and easy solution to the issue that we discussed at some length. As the Minister has already said, there is a lot going on just now. I will not let this go—

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Fisheries payments to the Scottish Ministers (17 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: The hon. Gentleman will be aware of the announcement made recently—last weekend, I think—about funding in the implementation period. As the hon. Member for Kilmarnock and Loudoun will probably also appreciate, it was not Barnettised; I think the overall figure was £32.7 million, with £16.4 million going to Scotland. Does the hon. Member for Glasgow North East welcome that?

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Fisheries payments to the Scottish Ministers (17 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: The general point that I think the hon. Gentleman is trying to make is that, while we are in the EU, we get the EMFF. However, does he accept that there is no guarantee of that same level of EMFF funding for member states in the future?

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Civil Service Relocation (19 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: The Minister will be aware—at least, I hope he is aware—of the success of the Oil and Gas Authority being based in Aberdeen, as was presented in evidence to the Scottish Affairs Committee yesterday by both our right hon. Friend the Minister for Energy and Clean Growth and the Minister for Energy, Connectivity and the Islands from the Scottish Government. Does the Minister agree that...

Future Immigration (19 Dec 2018)

David Duguid: I welcome the Government’s commitment to giving priority to those workers who have the skills we need. I also welcome my right hon. Friend’s announcement today of a year-long programme of engagement across the UK. May I therefore extend an invitation to him, and indeed to my right hon. Friend the Immigration Minister, to visit Banff and Buchan, an area of very low unemployment, to talk to...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

David Duguid: rose—

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

David Duguid: I was waiting for the famous 62% figure, which is often repeated, to come up. Does the hon. Gentleman also recognise that in the 2017 general election, 56% of Scottish voters voted for either the Conservatives or Labour, which, at the time at least, was committed to delivering on Brexit?

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

David Duguid: I rise to speak in this important debate as the Member of Parliament for arguably the most pro-Brexit constituency in Scotland: 54% of my constituents voted leave. Although I voted remain—only just, after much soul-searching—and continue to respect the views of those who voted remain and would still prefer to remain, I firmly believe that we in the House have a duty to carry out what the...

Leaving the EU (14 Jan 2019)

David Duguid: Can my right hon. Friend confirm that, contrary to the assertions made by President Macron and others, in the event of a backstop, which would be undesirable for both sides, there would be no more common access to our waters for EU fishing vessels?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Immigration (16 Jan 2019)

David Duguid: Will my right hon. Friend confirm that the Home Office and the Government in general have been engaging and will continue to engage with Scottish businesses on the consultation around the immigration Bill?

Business of the House (Today): No Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (16 Jan 2019)

David Duguid: I am delighted to follow the hon. Member for Paisley and Renfrewshire South (Mhairi Black); it is great to see her in her place. Mr Speaker, you were absolutely right earlier to point out the exuberance on these Benches during the speech made by the right hon. Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber (Ian Blackford). I am sure you will understand the passion and frustration we sometimes feel when...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Farming Policy (17 Jan 2019)

David Duguid: I welcome this Government’s commitment to, and Ministers’ earlier responses on, the issues of public goods, the environment and animal welfare. Will my hon. Friend confirm that future agricultural policy will also include a commitment to high-quality food and food safety?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Immigration (21 Jan 2019)

David Duguid: What plans he has for the UK’s future immigration system.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Immigration (21 Jan 2019)

David Duguid: I thank my right hon. Friend for his response. When we leave the common fisheries policy, as he will be aware, we take back control of our waters and our fish. We can expect at that point an expansion of the seafood processing sector in my constituency of Banff and Buchan, an area of very low unemployment. Will he therefore assure me that our future immigration policy will, if required,...

Leaving the EU (21 Jan 2019)

David Duguid: When the withdrawal agreement was made with the EU, President Macron almost immediately made a statement contrary to the text of the agreement, saying that unless the UK agreed to allow EU fishing vessels to have the same access to our waters as they have now, talks on a wider trade deal would fail, leaving the UK in the backstop. Will my right hon. Friend confirm that that was an empty...

Immigration and Social Security Co-Ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill (28 Jan 2019)

David Duguid: On that point, my hon. Friend talks about the brain drain from eastern European countries to here, but does she not also recognise that the economies of many of those countries are improving to the point that people from those countries no longer wish to come to the UK? They want to stay at home and develop their careers there, which is why we need this Bill to extend our reach beyond the EU.

Immigration and Social Security Co-Ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill (28 Jan 2019)

David Duguid: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Bristol North West (Darren Jones). I am reminded of a trip we took together last year to the United States when one of the last things we did was visit the State of Massachusetts’ refugee and immigration programme. It had some interesting ideas for both supporting refugees and making them valuable members of society, including by finding them...
