Immigration Bill — Report (3rd Day) (21 Mar 2016)

Lord Dubs: ...I was there when the plaque was put up, and it is an important thing to say—that people who are given safety are also grateful to this country. It was not just children from central Europe; some Basque children were also allowed to come here, following the bombing of Guernica. It is only a few months ago that Sir Nicky Winton died, aged 106. He was the person who saved many children from...

Northern Ireland (Stormont Agreement and Implementation Plan) Bill: Clause 6 — Extension of period for appointment of Ministers (10 Mar 2016)

Danny Kinahan: ...paramilitaries”. To answer the question that the hon. Member for Amber Valley (Nigel Mills) asked about other paramilitaries worldwide, when we go to the Falls Road, look at a wall there and see Basque and Colombian terrorists, Palestinians and others all being feted, we realise that this is larger than the sovereignty of this Parliament, and that this Parliament needs to use its...

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Government Budget Cuts (Impact on Scottish Government Budget) (12 Nov 2015)

Kenneth Gibson: ...UK Government retains the whip hand and that only a mutually beneficial bilateral relationship between the Governments through an economic agreement, such as that which exists between Spain and the Basque Country, will allow Scotland to fully and successfully develop distinctive economic and social policies without fear of UK-imposed cuts?

Scottish Parliament: Fiscal Framework ( 7 Oct 2015)

Chic Brodie: ...the devolved framework. That probably will come. Such a Scottish treasury would provide accurate forecasting and national accounts. The two comunidades forales, or autonomous regimes, in Spain, the Basque Country and Navarre, have their own treasury departments. The Basque autonomous community ranks first in Spain on per capita income, with gross domestic product per capita being 40 per...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Future, Democracy and Devolution (16 Sep 2015)

Mark McDonald: ...Committee report on the UK Government’s proposals, which demonstrates that around 38 per cent of the taxes that are raised in Scotland will be devolved or assigned to Scotland. The figure for the Basque Country and Navarre is over 50 per cent, for Quebec it is over 70 per cent and for the other Canadian provinces it is over 60 per cent. We should bear in mind that comparison when members...

Opposition Day — [6th allotted day]: Humanitarian Crisis in the Mediterranean and Europe ( 9 Sep 2015)

Angus Robertson: ...to people from further afield. I am talking about the thousands of Huguenots fleeing religious persecution, the thousands of Russian Jews fleeing the pogroms of the 19th century, the thousands of Basque children fleeing the Spanish civil war and the thousands of Jewish children in the Kindertransport. Incidentally, I am not sure why people do not ask why it was just a Kindertransport. Much...

Stephen Farry: ...practice internationally around the successes of vocational training, and it provided a good opportunity to share that best practice further. On the back of that, I had the opportunity to visit the Basque region in Spain in the same week and was able to sign a memorandum of understanding with the regional government there on exchange opportunities for our students and to allow our colleges...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Engagement (22 Apr 2015)

Christina McKelvie: ...a major four-part inquiry entitled “Connecting Scotland: how Scotland can engage most effectively in a globalising world”. We have already taken evidence from representatives of the Catalan, Basque and Flemish Governments to give us a wider perspective. The next phase of the inquiry will involve us considering how non-governmental and third sector organisations in Scotland engage in...

Scottish Parliament: Economy and Finances ( 1 Apr 2015)

Murdo Fraser: ...to Westminster for some minor reserved items that the SNP wishes to see, such as defence and foreign affairs—simply does not exist as a model anywhere on the planet. The closest example is the Basque Country in Spain but, even there, there is an element of control of tax levels from Madrid. There is a very good reason why there is no precedent, which is that such a system is simply...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Economy (11 Mar 2015)

Joan McAlpine: .... There is already a very good example of fiscal autonomy in Europe that has, in a relatively short time, demonstrated that shifting power from the centre can result in an economic step change. The Basque Country signed its economic agreement with Spain in 1980. At the time, the region was suffering from an economic crisis—it was in some ways similar to Scotland: like parts of central...

Palestine: Recognition — Motion to Take Note (29 Jan 2015)

Baroness Deech: ...wholly dependent on international funds. For it to be recognised now—by the General Assembly, for example—would simply send the message to every other non-state entity in the world, such as the Basque country, Northern Cyprus, the Kurds and even Scotland, to bypass normal laws and claim to be a state. Let there be a two-state solution by all means if the Palestinians will create a...

Scottish Parliament: Smith Commission (10 Dec 2014)

Linda Fabiani: ...levels of decentralisation to sub-central governments and they are not reflected in the charts, so regional differences in places such as Spain and Canada are not always taken into account. The Basque Country, for example, raises all taxes and pays Madrid as the centre for services. That seems to be a much more powerful position to be in than depending on a grant for most of our income....

Scottish Parliament: Smith Commission for Further Devolution of Powers to the Scottish Parliament ( 2 Dec 2014)

Stuart McMillan: ...cent of welfare powers falls far short of the promises of home rule and maximum devolution when compared with levels of autonomy that are afforded elsewhere, including in Switzerland, Canada, the Basque Country and Navarra?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Road Traffic Offenders (Additional Offences) Order (Northern Ireland) 2014: Prayer of Annulment ( 4 Nov 2014)

Alban Maginness: ...Principal Deputy Speaker. I am glad of your ruling. Another point was made about trying to remove borders in Ireland. What does Sinn Féin want? It wants to create a border in Spain, between the Basque Country and the rest of Spain. So, on the one hand, it wants to remove the border in Ireland, but, on the other, it wants to create a border in Spain. Those are the contradictions —
