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...

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...

Defence: Defence Jobs (18 Jul 2022)

David Duguid: What steps his Department is taking to support defence jobs.

Defence: Defence Jobs (18 Jul 2022)

David Duguid: Scottish businesses receive more investment than average across the UK from defence procurement, so how will my right hon. Friend continue to encourage the building of the skills that we need to help Scottish businesses to continue doing their bit in defence of our United Kingdom?

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?

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.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Storms: Power Failures (5 Jul 2022)

David Duguid: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what steps his Department is taking to implement resilience recommendations 3 and 4 within the Storm Arwen electricity distribution disruption review, published on 9 June 2022.

Scotland: Union’s Impact on Scotland (29 Jun 2022)

David Duguid: I totally agree with my hon. Friend the Minister when he says there are multiple priorities that should be at the forefront of the attention of the First Minister and SNP Members in this House. All of those are very challenging, but one simple thing the Scottish Government could do is adopt the UK Government’s approach to genetic technology and precision breeding. Does my hon. Friend agree...

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: Examination of Witnesses (28 Jun 2022)

David Duguid: Thank you to the witnesses for the excellent information so far. Obviously, you represent NFU England. This is an England-only Bill, and we welcome the opportunity for devolved Administrations to take part in the process, but I was wondering, from an NFU perspective—this is for Mr Exwood—what engagement have you had with your counterparts in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, for...

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

David Duguid: Q I have another question, if I may, for Dr Ferrier. I think you said something earlier in response to Deidre Brock’s question about being able to keep gene edited crops separate from organic crops, for example. Are the quality control measures that are already in place—separating seed barley from feed and malting barley, say, or different varieties of seeds and suchlike—enough to...

Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill (15 Jun 2022)

David Duguid: It has been said, but it bears repetition, that gene editing is different from genetic modification, because it does not result in the introduction of DNA from other species. Gene editing creates new varieties similar to those that could be produced more slowly by traditional natural breeding processes. Without this legislation, that process would continue to be regulated in the same way as...

Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill (15 Jun 2022)

David Duguid: I may be tempted to agree with that, but, in my experience as a Scotland Office Minister, I think that it is much more productive to work with Scottish Government Ministers behind the scenes; outside the sometimes febrile mode of this Chamber, we can work together on these things. Again, I encourage the Scottish Government and my SNP colleagues in this House to come to the table and work on...

Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill (15 Jun 2022)

David Duguid: The hon. Lady is making a lot of points about how this is, of course, a devolved area, but does she therefore disagree with the president of NFU Scotland, Martin Kennedy, when he says that precision breeding techniques such as gene editing, led by scientific expertise available in Scotland, have considerable potential to deliver benefits for food, nutrition, agriculture, biodiversity and...

Written Answers — Treasury: Fuels: Costs (15 Jun 2022)

David Duguid: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, if he will bring forward further fiscal measures to help tackle recent increases in fuel costs.

Economy Update (26 May 2022)

David Duguid: As the Chancellor knows, I have spoken in this House and privately to him against Labour’s proposals for a windfall tax—[Interruption.] I was waiting for the heckle. In my opinion, which I believe the Chancellor shares, they were entirely too blunt an instrument and frankly punitive for the sake of being punitive. I welcome his support for those most affected by the rising costs, his more...
