Backbench Business: UK Oil and Gas Industry — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (19 Apr 2018)

Andrew Bowie: Would my hon. Friend agree that oil and gas is not a transitional industry on the journey through to a decarbonised world? There are many industries and many people who will be using oil and gas as an energy source, and for other reasons, for many years to come.

Backbench Business: UK Oil and Gas Industry — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (19 Apr 2018)

Andrew Bowie: Does my hon. Friend agree that there is a general feeling in the north-east of Scotland that the region has been undervalued and underfunded by Governments over the past few years?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Business of the House (19 Apr 2018)

Andrew Bowie: Agricultural machinery rings, such as Ringlink in my constituency—I have visited Ringlink, which has in excess of 2,700 members—play a vital and yet undervalued part in running a modern agricultural business by matching a shortage of machinery and labour on some farms with a surplus on other farms. Will my right hon. Friend consider a debate in Government time on the vital part...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Topical Questions (18 Apr 2018)

Andrew Bowie: In the last few weeks, there has sadly been an increase in tension and violence on the Israel-Gaza border. Just last weekend, Israel destroyed a cross-border tunnel that Hamas had built to attack Israeli civilians. I happen to have seen that those tunnels involve a huge amount of construction materials, so what is the Minister doing to ensure that no UK aid is being diverted to fund those...

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Andrew Bowie: Permanent membership of the Security Council is a privilege, but it is one that comes with huge responsibilities. Does my right hon. Friend agree that, in acting as it has done over this whole issue by blocking peaceful diplomatic solutions and defending the actions of Bashar al-Assad at every stage, the Russian Federation is not only shirking those responsibilities but complicit in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Leaving the EU: The Union (28 Mar 2018)

Andrew Bowie: Does my right hon. Friend share my frustration at the actions and attitude of the SNP Government regarding clause 11 of the withdrawal Bill? While he has been working on an agreement with the devolved Administrations, they have been blocking, frustrating, agitating and doing everything in their power to manufacture a constitutional crisis in our family of nations.

Future of the Commonwealth — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (21 Mar 2018)

Andrew Bowie: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Gloucester (Richard Graham) on bringing this important debate to the Chamber. I also pay tribute to him for his obvious passion for eradicating malaria and for the education of young girls across the Commonwealth. In the Commonwealth’s near 70-year history, it has been an...

Exiting the European Union: Common Policy Frameworks: Devolved Administrations (15 Mar 2018)

Andrew Bowie: Yesterday, following the JMCEN, the First Minister of Scotland said of the Scottish Government: “We can’t have our powers restricted or reduced”. Does my hon. Friend recognise the irony in that, given that the only people who are willing to reduce the powers of the Scottish Parliament are those in the SNP, whose policy continues to be that those powers should remain in...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Oil and Gas Industry (13 Mar 2018)

Andrew Bowie: What progress has been made on a sector deal for the oil and gas industry.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Oil and Gas Industry (13 Mar 2018)

Andrew Bowie: I thank my hon. Friend for that answer. The oil and gas industry based in the north-east of Scotland has contributed over £330 billion to the economy, supports over 330,000 jobs across the United Kingdom and has a supply chain worth nearly £30 billion. With an estimated 20 million barrels of oil still to get out of the North sea, the industry has huge potential to drive this...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Oil and Gas Industry (13 Mar 2018)

Andrew Bowie: Will the Minister pledge to work continually with the industry to develop and deliver the sector deal?

Salisbury Incident (12 Mar 2018)

Andrew Bowie: I thank the Prime Minister for her statement, and I pay tribute to a group of individuals who have, I think, been unmentioned so far this afternoon: the armed forces personnel who attended with the professionalism and selfless devotion to duty that we expect of them. What is the Prime Minister doing with our allies in NATO, the United Nations and, of course, the European Union to ensure the...

British Transport Police/ Police Scotland Merger — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (6 Mar 2018)

Andrew Bowie: Given all that, does my hon. Friend think it might be the time for Her Majesty’s Government to consider delaying the laying of orders facilitating the merger north of the border?

UK Fisheries Policy — [Mr Ian Paisley in the Chair] (27 Feb 2018)

Andrew Bowie: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship this afternoon, Mr Paisley. I congratulate my colleague, my hon. Friend the Member for North Cornwall (Scott Mann), on securing the debate. Like many other Members taking part in this afternoon’s debate, I represent a coastal constituency—31 miles of magnificent North sea coastline from St Cyrus to Portlethen. However, I am unlike...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: The Scottish Economy (27 Feb 2018)

Andrew Bowie: What recent assessment he has made of the effect of Government investment on the Scottish economy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: The Scottish Economy (27 Feb 2018)

Andrew Bowie: I am sure that my right hon. Friend will share my concern, and that of my constituents, at recent statistics showing that trend-based productivity in Scotland had declined by 3.2% in the year end to September 2017—well below the levels of the UK and its lowest level in eight years. Does he agree that instead of making Scotland the highest-tax part of the UK and increasing the tax burden...
