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

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...

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?

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...

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?

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Fishing Industry (29 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: Regardless of what happens in the coming days and weeks, we are going to become an independent coastal state, like Norway, Iceland and the Faroes. Like them, we will have to come to a fisheries agreement with the EU. Does my right hon. Friend agree that, in the negotiation of that agreement specifically, he and the officials in his Department should take the lead?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Legislative Consent Motions (28 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: What recent discussions he has had with the Scottish Government on the granting of legislative consent motions for legislation on the UK leaving the EU.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Legislative Consent Motions (28 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: The Fisheries Bill is one of the Bills that my right hon. Friend referred to; it lays the groundwork for the revival of fishing in Banff and Buchan and all along Scotland’s coastline, and what is more, it confers new powers on the ScottishGovernment. I know that the Scottish National party’s policy is to take us back into the common fisheries policy, but does he agree that they should...

Health and Social Care: GP Access: Learning Disabilities (27 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: Let me start by thanking my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for his support last Thursday on 22q Awareness Day; 22q11 deletion syndrome is second only to Down’s syndrome in its prevalence as a genetic condition, but perhaps surprisingly, there is a remarkably low level of awareness among GPs of this condition, which can lead to avoidable mental health issues in children. Will the...

Leaving the EU (26 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: In response to my right hon. Friend’s statement, the right hon. Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber (Ian Blackford) claimed—predictably, I must say—that Scottish fishermen are being sold out somehow.

Leaving the EU (26 Nov 2018)

David Duguid: Not in the document. According to the chief executive of the Scottish Fishermen’s Federation, this deal does enable the UK to become “an independent Coastal State with full, unfettered sovereignty over our waters and natural resources.” Whom should I tell my constituents to believe?
