Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Knife Crime (16 Jul 2018)

Friend reassure my constituents that banning the delivery of bladed articles to residential addresses will not prevent the legal pursuits of tradesmen and hobbyists?

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Govia Thameslink/Rail Electrification (3 Jul 2018)

Colin Clark: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Govia Thameslink/Rail Electrification (3 Jul 2018)

Colin Clark: Thank you very much, Mr Speaker. In my question to the Financial Secretary to the Treasury, I mentioned EU payments to farmers. I should like to set the record straight and declare an interest, in that I am a recipient of the EU single farm payment. My farming interest is recorded in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests.

Leaving the EU: Implications for Scotland — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Colin Clark: Thank you very much, Sir Roger. It is a pleasure, as ever, to serve under your chairmanship, and to follow the hon. Member for North Ayrshire and Arran (Patricia Gibson). As a Scottish Conservative and Unionist, I strongly believe in democracy. The Scottish people rejected independence in 2014, just as the British people voted to leave the EU two years later. Both referendums were massive...

Leaving the EU: Implications for Scotland — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Colin Clark: I thank the hon. Gentleman very much for that question; I absolutely respect that point, and I covered it in the first line of my speech. People voted to stay in the United Kingdom, and we had a United Kingdom vote in the European Union referendum.

Leaving the EU: Implications for Scotland — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Colin Clark: I will make some progress. The Scottish people now expect politicians to carry out their wishes. I was disappointed to hear the hon. Member for North Ayrshire and Arran take quite such a negative tone. Nobody on the Government Benches is denying the challenges that surround our exit from the EU, nor are we naive to the scale of the work still to be completed, and much work has been done....

Leaving the EU: Implications for Scotland — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Colin Clark: I thank the hon. Lady for the question, but I have an absolute respect for the institutions of this country, including the Electoral Commission, which will investigate funding, whether in Scottish elections or the EU referendum. I will respect its findings, because I have respect for UK institutions. On day one after exit, more than 80 new powers will go directly from Brussels to...

Leaving the EU: Implications for Scotland — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Colin Clark: That is a good question. As the hon. and learned Lady knows, we are not leaving Europe. We are leaving the EU. We would hope to form a market in a frictionless free trade arrangement with the EU. Norway is also a huge exporter and is not a full member of the EU. We hope to negotiate a free trade arrangement with the EU.

Leaving the EU: Implications for Scotland — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Colin Clark: It will go to Europe, with us outside the EU. It will go to Japan, America and the rest of the world. Those are the enormous opportunities that we have. It is incredible that the hon. and learned Lady does not realise that the common fisheries policy means that British fishermen catch only 40% of their potential fish catch. We cannot go to other countries in Europe and take their agricultural...

Leaving the EU: Implications for Scotland — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Colin Clark: I will only point out that my party, and this Parliament, will listen to science. I hope that the Scottish Government will also do so; on many things they do. I want finally to mention farming, the oldest industry. Just under two weeks ago I was at the Royal Highland Show, as I am sure were many other hon. Members. I learned that the Scottish Government’s climate change ambitions pose a...

Leaving the EU: Implications for Scotland — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Colin Clark: Does the hon. Lady accept that almost a third of Scottish National party voters also voted to leave the EU and that, therefore, the SNP is divided on this issue too?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Leaving the EU: Agricultural Sector (3 Jul 2018)

Colin Clark: Due to the UK’s massive EU contributions, support to EU farmers will be cut as the UK leaves the EU. Does the Minister agree that the commitment to make payments to UK farmers until 2022 demonstrates this Government’s support for UK farmers?

Scottish Economy — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Colin Clark: The end of property business rates relief in Aberdeen is doing a lot of damage to the business community, which is having, essentially, to knock down buildings. Does the hon. Lady agree that that policy went too far, and that there have been consequences that the Scottish Government did not foresee? Would she recommend that Scottish Government Ministers reverse it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (26 Jun 2018)

Colin Clark: The Hamas terrorist group continues to misappropriate international aid to rebuild its terror infrastructure, including attack tunnels into Israel. This is deeply concerning. What does the Foreign Secretary intend to do, alongside our international partners, to limit Hamas’s dangerous influence in Gaza?
