Written Answers — Treasury: Members: Correspondence (16 Oct 2020)

Dave Doogan: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, when HMRC plans to respond to the letters of (a) 29 June 2020, (b) 29 July 2020, (c) 7 September 2020 and (d) 30 September 2020 from the hon. Member for Angus on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.

Covid-19 Update (15 Oct 2020)

Dave Doogan: Operation Moonshot was the UK Government’s latest world-beating covid intervention, but it seems that it has perhaps missed its target and is heading off into deep space. The public did not ask for world-beating; they asked for competent, and they deserve availability. Can the Secretary of State advise us on whether there are any positive signals from Operation Moonshot? When will it be...

Electricity Generation: Local Suppliers (14 Oct 2020)

Dave Doogan: I do not want to anticipate where the hon. Gentleman is going with this list, but one of the key opportunities that a right to local supply would present to our communities right across these islands is to allow for more entrepreneurial councils to generate electricity locally for communities, as the chief executive of Angus Council has suggested. Does he agree with that ambition?

RAF Valley: Funding and Employment: Productivity: Rural Areas (14 Oct 2020)

Dave Doogan: I guarantee I will. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Ghani. I am grateful to the hon. Member for North Cornwall (Scott Mann) for bringing this debate. Rural communities’ needs must have greater prominence in Government policy. We would do well to ensure that this debate provides traction for that ambition. Across the UK—especially in England and Northern Ireland,...

Fisheries Bill [Lords]: New Clause 8 - Agency arrangements between sea fish licensing authorities (13 Oct 2020)

Dave Doogan: I am very happy to follow the hon. Member for Moray (Douglas Ross). I am extremely fortunate to represent Angus, the garden of Scotland. Our bounty extends well beyond our exceptional farmland, over our cliffs, and into our abundant seas—the North sea. After all, we have in Arbroath the home of the Arbroath smokie—a taste sensation that I know for a fact the Minister regularly enjoys....

Fisheries Bill [Lords]: New Clause 8 - Agency arrangements between sea fish licensing authorities (13 Oct 2020)

Dave Doogan: I am happy that the hon. Member for Moray is so quick to tell me what SNP policy is. Perhaps he will yield to my knowledge of such matters. I think I am probably on fairly solid ground as an SNP politician in saying what our policy is. I will be taking no lectures from a Conservative politician on how to access the EU in the interests of fishing. We have seen how badly it was done by the...

Fisheries Bill [Lords]: New Clause 8 - Agency arrangements between sea fish licensing authorities (13 Oct 2020)

Dave Doogan: I think I heard the hon. Gentleman correctly when he said that there was almost 50% support for Brexit in his constituency, so he lost the Brexit argument in his constituency. Is that right?

Agriculture Bill: Clause 4 - Multi-annual financial assistance plans (12 Oct 2020)

Dave Doogan: In following the hon. Member for The Cotswolds (Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown), I will try not to resort to impolite comments such as that which he directed at the hon. Member for Brighton, Pavilion (Caroline Lucas). He could not see the embarrassment on his colleagues’ faces when he made that comment. I rise to speak in favour of amendment 16. The clarion voice of the people is at issue...

Scotland: Coronavirus: Employment (7 Oct 2020)

Dave Doogan: The Secretary of State and his colleagues are given to chest-beating about the tremendous amount of revenue flowing to Scotland to get us through the pandemic—every penny of it, of course, borrowed. Will he tell me and the people of Scotland why those borrowing decisions are better made here than they would be by the people of Scotland in Scotland, and why we are habitually brow-beaten into...

Written Answers — Home Office: Members: Correspondence (5 Oct 2020)

Dave Doogan: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, when she plans to respond to the correspondence from the hon. Member for Angus of 7 August 2020 on biometric assessments.

Covid-19 Update and Hospitality Curfew (1 Oct 2020)

Dave Doogan: The Minister will know that the hospitality sector emerged on its knees from the general lockdown, and I am sure he understands that those in the sector were barely getting to their feet when the 10 o’clock curfew came in. He has given hon. and right hon. Members a lot of assurance today that he will keep this under review. As part of that review, can he assure the licensed trade,...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 11 - Modifications in connection with the Northern Ireland Protocol (21 Sep 2020)

Dave Doogan: The Bill is objectionable in a very broad sense, and my colleagues and I will not rest in detailing its egregious impositions on Scotland and our people. Like others, I look across the Chamber and I cannot see a single Scottish Tory MP in here. Perhaps they are not worried about how goods will move freely between Scotland and Northern Ireland, but I can assure the House that I and my...

Defence: Special Forces: Independent Oversight (21 Sep 2020)

Dave Doogan: If he will make an assessment of the potential merits of establishing an independent body to oversee the operations of the UK’s Special Forces.

Defence: Special Forces: Independent Oversight (21 Sep 2020)

Dave Doogan: Special forces deserve the very best technological support. Swedish technology company Saab announced in July that it intends to establish a centre in the UK for forward combat air systems. The optimal location for that facility is in east-central Scotland, where Saab can benefit not only from clustering with leading industrial partners, such as Leonardo, Babcock and Raytheon, but from our...

Business of the House (17 Sep 2020)

Dave Doogan: Scotland is a dynamic, forward-looking nation and is ambitious to retake its position on the world stage by adherence to the international rules-based order. When it makes an agreement with a future ally, it will stick to it, by contrast to the way that the Government are behaving this week with the United Kingdom Internal Market Bill and their ambitions to break international law. Does the...

Tourism: Covid-19 (10 Sep 2020)

Dave Doogan: In 2018, tourism brought in 5.5 million visitors, 3.5 million of whom were from overseas, and with them came £5 billion to the Scottish economy, but I want to look at the heart of the tourism industry: the coach sector—the wheels on which the tourism industry literally runs. Tourists do not come here to see our outstanding airports, vital though they are—and I know they have their own...
