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...

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...

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...

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...

Rural Communities in Scotland: Broadband — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (22 Nov 2017)

David Duguid: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk (John Lamont) on securing this important debate. He and I share a passion for ensuring that rural communities such as his, mine in Banff and Buchan and those represented in the Chamber are not left behind in the roll-out of superfast broadband.

Universal Credit Roll-Out (16 Nov 2017)

David Duguid: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker—and thanks for pronouncing my name so well! I congratulate the right hon. Member for Birkenhead (Frank Field) on securing this debate and welcome this opportunity to make my maiden speech. It is quite timely, because in just the past couple of weeks I have started engaging with my local Citizens Advice office and jobcentres on this very subject in...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (16 Nov 2017)

David Duguid: You are all most welcome. Our shoreline is regularly visited by porpoises and dolphins, and even the occasional humpback or killer whale. In summary, Banff and Buchan is a great place to live in and to visit. However, the standard of some of our public services, particularly education and health, has taken a bit of a hit in recent years under a SNP Government who are obsessed with pursuing...
