Written Answers — Department for Transport: Aviation (8 Dec 2017)

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Capital Project Funding (6 Dec 2017)

Christine Jardine: What discussions he has had with the Scottish Government since the autumn Budget 2017 on plans for capital project funding in Scotland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Capital Project Funding (6 Dec 2017)

Christine Jardine: Does the Secretary of State agree that while the sum is much less than might have been hoped for, the Barnett consequentials for housing should be ring-fenced by the Scottish Government for that purpose alone, and not for another high-profile, faulty bridge?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Christine Jardine: I want to speak specifically to amendments 132, 133 and 134. Like many others before us today, they are designed to protect the integrity and powers of the devolved Administrations of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland by removing the proposed bar on legislating inconsistently with the EU in each case. I have been disappointed that in this debate we have not been able to reach the consensus...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Christine Jardine: I will come on to that. As the hon. Gentleman himself has said, it is currently being negotiated between Scotland’s two Governments exactly what the framework and the powers would be, and until we have that assurance we cannot be absolutely sure. Today I find myself in the strange position where I feel as though I have been transported back 25 or 30 years, to a time when the Opposition...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Christine Jardine: No, that is how it is. The Conservatives are needing to be persuaded, even though they themselves admit that they are unhappy with aspects of clause 11. They are looking to their own Whips rather than to what might be best for the devolution settlement in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. We should not forget that the leave campaign argued that Brexit would lift restrictions and lead to...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Christine Jardine: My right hon. Friend makes a very good point. That is yet another example of how this Government are undermining the United Kingdom at every turn. For Opposition Members, the drive is to protect the devolution settlement and potentially the stability of the United Kingdom. There are a number of other amendments that are similar to ours which we are happy to support, and we will not press ours...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Christine Jardine: But does the hon. Gentleman accept that this is not just about how well Scotland’s two Governments are talking to each others? It is also about Wales and Northern Ireland—it is about each devolution settlement. We should not expect the situations in Wales and Northern Ireland to be dependent on the outcome of talks between Scotland’s two Governments.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Christine Jardine: Does the hon. Gentleman accept that I and, I hope, the hon. Member for Edinburgh South (Ian Murray) are doing what we believe is necessary to protect the devolution settlement? By doing so, we are doing much more to protect the United Kingdom than the Conservatives, who may actually be undermining it?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Christine Jardine: I am astonished. Does the hon. Gentleman not agree that continual discord, arguments about the constitution and a perceived threat to the powers of the Scottish Parliament are more of a threat to the United Kingdom than anything proposed in any amendment in Committee today?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Christine Jardine: What action will the hon. Gentleman take if amendments 164 and 165 are not passed and his demands do not come to pass? Would it not be more sensible to just support the amendments?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Social Housing (4 Dec 2017)

Christine Jardine: The number of homes delivered for social rent has fallen by more than 85% since 2010. Just 5,380 are expected to have been completed in 2016-17, compared with nearly 40,000 in 2010-11. The Budget contains virtually no support for the building of new social housing, and only £6 billion of new money for housing altogether. Is that not a far cry from the £50 billion that was called for...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: India: British Nationals Abroad (1 Dec 2017)

State Pension Age: Women (29 Nov 2017)

Christine Jardine: It strikes me that some of us in this House might do well to remember that our retirement might be a decision made by the electorate, who have every right to know when they can retire. They would know, were it not for the way in which the House passed legislation in 1995 and 2011 that changed the state pension age for women born in the ’50s and then failed to communicate that...
