Scottish Parliament: Smith Commission (28 Oct 2014)

Malcolm Chisholm: ...it would have a devastating effect on a Scottish economy that was either independent or devo max-dependent. The only example that anyone can give of devo max operating anywhere in the world is the Basque country. Once again at the Finance Committee on 8 October, David Bell pointed out the fundamental difference between the Basque country and Scotland with regard to the strength of our...

Bill Presented: Devolution (Scotland Referendum) (14 Oct 2014)

Paul Murphy: ...a system in which there can be either first or second-class Members of the federal or central legislature. Spain, for example, has an asymmetric system of devolution, but Members representing the Basque country or Catalonia, which have highly developed systems of devolution, have the same rights as those representing other parts of Spain. The reality is that we cannot separate Members of...

Scottish Parliament: Referendum Debate (24 Sep 2014)

Joan McAlpine: ...home rule, devo max or federalism, that offer goes well beyond the existing offers from the unionist parties. Malcolm Chisholm says there is no example of devo max in the world. In Europe, the Basque Country is regarded as having a devo max system. The regional Government there raises and retains its own revenue and gives a quota back to Madrid to cover defence and foreign affairs. The...

Scottish Parliament: Referendum Debate (23 Sep 2014)

Roderick Campbell: ...in The Sunday Telegraph on Sunday, while arguing for the Barnett formula to be scrapped, that there is a case for devo max. He indicated that there are international models to consider, such as the Basque Country, where the Basque Government levies income, corporation and capital taxes and pays Madrid for common national services. The Campbell commission argued for inheritance and capital...

Scotland: Independence — Motion to Take Note (24 Jun 2014)

Lord Elder: ...question—a class act, as ever. It seems to me, if you were a commissioner in Brussels, looking about and you saw Scotland, you saw Macedonia—both of them—you saw Catalonia, and you saw the Basque country, and you were sitting in Brussels in a country that until very recently almost did not have a Government because it was split in two, you would worry a great deal about setting in...

European Union (Referendum) Bill — Committee (2nd Day) (31 Jan 2014)

Lord Wigley: ...relationship with the European Union must develop in a way that allows flexibility to take that consideration on board. That must arise in countries such as Spain as well, where Catalonia or the Basque country may have a slightly different view from Madrid on some issues. If the European Union insists on being a totally centralist organisation, which I do not believe in its essence it has...

Council of Europe: Local and Regional Democracy — Question for Short Debate ( 6 Feb 2013)

Lord Greaves: ...of the country. Spain is constitutionally a unitary state, but it has extensive though asymmetric devolution to autonomous democratic regions. The strongest of these, particularly Catalonia and the Basque country, approach something akin to the status of regions within a federal system. In France and Italy there are democratic regional authorities that are more akin to very large local...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Older People: Health and Social Services ( 5 Feb 2013)

Edwin Poots: ...Ireland is officially recognised as a reference region for innovation in Connected Health.  That is very positive, and we are giving a lead.  Recently, representatives from Chile visited the Basque region and Northern Ireland because we are the two leading centres in the world for Connected Health. The Connected Health programme is rolling out.  I would like it to be rolled out faster...

Kosovo — Question (29 Jan 2013)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: ...Minister will agree that those countries, particularly the EU countries, which have so far failed to recognise Kosovo, have done so for good-or at least for domestic -reasons, be it Catalonia, the Basque country, or Northern Cyprus. It is most unlikely that there will be any fundamental change by those countries unless and until Serbia and Kosovo itself reach an agreement. Therefore, the...

Iain Stewart: ...states. If one looks at the political reality of other member states in Europe, that is far from a foregone conclusion. Would Spain, for example, agree to it with its issues in Catalonia and the Basque country? Would Belgium, whose constitutional integrity is under question, agree?
