Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Andrew Bowie: Although my constituency contains 31 miles of magnificent North sea coastline, it does not have much of a fishing industry—certainly not as much as the constituency of my hon. Friend the Member for Banff and Buchan (David Duguid). However, I thought it was important that I speak in today’s debate on the eve of the Fisheries Council that will set quotas for all European fishing...

Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Andrew Bowie: First, I want to comment on what was said by the right hon. Member for Birkenhead (Frank Field). Having been in a similar position as a staffer for a Member of the Scottish Parliament, I well understand how a situation like the one he described can affect people. I also want to associate myself with the words of my hon. Friend the Member for Brentwood and Ongar (Alex Burghart) regarding the...

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

Andrew Bowie: I am not sure I actually understand the premise of the question. I will give way again if the hon. Gentleman would like to explain.

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

Andrew Bowie: I am arguing that, if we agreed to the provisions set down by the Scottish National party and the other Opposition parties, it would be fatally undermined and at risk. Just to prove my point, we all know that making a success of Brexit and protecting and strengthening our internal market are not in the interests of the Scottish National party, whose raison d’être remains the...

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

Andrew Bowie: I will not give way, I am afraid, given that I have to wrap up soon. As things stand today, it is a fact that, thanks to the actions of this Government, the Scottish Parliament is now one of the most powerful devolved legislative Assemblies in the world, with powers over—[Interruption.] It has powers over justice, education, health, transport, the environment and, now, taxation and...

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

Andrew Bowie: Does my hon. Friend agree that SNP Members have absolutely no interest in our making a success of Brexit, because their only aim is to break up our United Kingdom?

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

Andrew Bowie: This debate concerns all constituent countries of the United Kingdom, but I will reserve my remarks to Scotland as I represent West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine. As a Member of Parliament of the 2017 vintage, which is a very fine vintage, I am finding—along with everyone else, I am sure—that one of the most common questions asked of me on the doorsteps and in constituency...

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

Andrew Bowie: Like my hon. Friend the Member for East Renfrewshire (Paul Masterton), I believe that changes will have to be made to clause 11 as it stands, but that we cannot support the amendments tabled by the SNP as they would fatally undermine the United Kingdom and the common market that we all share. Let us look at the facts of the devolution settlements. The current devolution settlements reflect...

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

Andrew Bowie: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that question. I have to admit I have never been asked specifically on the doorstep how I think clause 11 is deficient, but when I am I will explain the issue to people, and if the hon. Gentleman holds on, I will get to that in my speech. Let us be clear: this is not a power grab. It is part of a process through which we must work to achieve the best possible...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Home Building (4 Dec 2017)

Andrew Bowie: I thank my right hon. Friend for that answer. The work of his Department and the pledge in the Budget to build 300,000 new homes in England are very welcome, and will go some way to address growing intergenerational unfairness when it comes to getting on the housing ladder. Will he join me today in calling for the Scottish Government to match the Scottish Conservatives’ pledge to build...

State Pension Age: Women: EU Nationals (29 Nov 2017)

Andrew Bowie: EU nationals living in the United Kingdom form an integral part of the economic, cultural and social fabric of this country. I should declare an interest, as I am married to one. My wife hails from Stockholm. Therefore, it is no surprise that I am very supportive of the principle that it should be business as usual for EU nationals, even if only to have a quiet home life. That is the right...
