Scotland: Scottish Agricultural Sector (1 Jul 2020)

David Duguid: I thank my hon. Friend for his welcome to the Dispatch Box. This Government have guaranteed the current annual budget for every year of this Parliament, giving significant certainty on funding in the coming years not just for Scottish farmers, but for Welsh farmers and around the UK. As I said in an earlier response, we can agree ambitious new trade deals around the world while protecting our...

Written Answers — Scotland Office: Fisheries: Scotland (12 Jun 2020)

David Duguid: Under the devolution settlement, fisheries policy is largely a devolved matter, however, I and my Department are in regular contact with Defra and other government departments to ensure that Scottish fishing interests have been and continue to be clearly represented. The Transition Period will not be extended. At the end of this year, for the first time in 40 years, we will be free to decide...

Written Answers — Scotland Office: Fisheries: Scotland (12 Jun 2020)

David Duguid: Fisheries protection and enforcement is a devolved matter in Scotland but the UK Government is very aware that its effectiveness is dependent upon close cooperation between the fisheries protection and other maritime security functions of the UK Government, the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the NI Executive. Officials in the Office of the Secretary of State for Scotland have...

Defence: Covid-19: Departmental Support (12 May 2020)

David Duguid: I welcome the intervention of the Ministry of Defence in supporting the covid-19 testing capacity across the whole UK, but can my right hon. Friend tell me what discussions he has had with the Department of Health and Social Care and the devolved Administrations on the effectiveness of those MOD testing facilities, and will he meet me, at least virtually, to discuss specific issues that we...

Scotland: Covid-19: Economic Support (25 Mar 2020)

David Duguid: May I associate myself with the remarks of my right hon. Friend and others recognising the health and emergency services and public services in general?

Friend’s confirmation that the Scottish Government will receive at least...

Flybe (5 Mar 2020)

David Duguid: Obviously my sympathies go out to the staff affected by the collapse of Flybe, and also the passengers affected in Banff and Buchan and throughout north-east Scotland, because a large number of its flights would have been serviced from Aberdeen. I know the Government are committed to levelling up regional connectivity across the whole United Kingdom, not least from discussions I have had...

European Union: Future Relationship (27 Feb 2020)

David Duguid: I very much welcome the statement, and the document to which my right hon. Friend refers. I particularly welcome the clarification and increased detail on the subject of fisheries, and not least the point that, as he said in his statement, “we will require a wholly separate agreement on fisheries. We will take back control of our waters as an independent coastal state, and we will not link...

UK Oil and Gas Industry — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Feb 2020)

David Duguid: On the different technologies for which carbon capture and storage is a critical factor, will the Minister consider talking to colleagues in the Department for Transport about alternative aviation fuel, some of which will also require carbon capture and storage for its creation?

UK Oil and Gas Industry — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Feb 2020)

David Duguid: Both hon. Members have made the excellent point that, like our environmental performance, health and safety in the oil and gas sector across the UK has been world class—in fact, world envied for a number of years—so that it is one of our exportable commodities as well. Does my hon. Friend agree that we and the Government need to continue looking at the export opportunities of not just the...

UK Oil and Gas Industry — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Feb 2020)

David Duguid: Having come from the same breakfast briefing as the hon. Member for Kilmarnock and Loudoun (Alan Brown), I was going to confirm that BP is involved in Teesside. Of course, Shell is involved in the so-called Scottish cluster, between Saint Fergus and Grangemouth. I just wanted to make the point that other clusters are available.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Broadband (13 Feb 2020)

David Duguid: The percentage of residents without access to superfast broadband in Banff and Buchan has decreased from 18% to 16% in the last two years, but that is still far too many and nowhere near fast enough in both senses. In 2020, decent broadband is a necessity for everyone in my constituency, not a luxury. Can the Minister assure me and my constituents that the Government will do all they can,...

UK Fisheries — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (12 Feb 2020)

David Duguid: The hon. Gentleman makes an excellent point and I agree that we do not have enough environmental health officers. As a current—and soon to be recovering—member of Aberdeenshire Council, can he explain why the council has to cut back on environmental health officers?

UK Fisheries — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (12 Feb 2020)

David Duguid: I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for South East Cornwall (Mrs Murray) for securing the debate—a debate that coastal communities around the United Kingdom, not least in my constituency, have been looking forward to for 47 years. I have spoken in a couple of these debates, and I have spoken about fishing in debates that had nothing to do with fishing whenever I had the chance, but...
