Debate on the Address: Public Services (16 Oct 2019)

Carol Monaghan: ...their working lives. We now know that much of it is eventually written off anyway, so why are we doing this to them? The greatest threat to our higher and further education sectors is, of course, Brexit. According to today’s edition of The Times, a Royal Society report states that funding for Horizon 2020 has fallen by a third, or half a billion euros, since 2015, and there has been a...

Us Tariffs: Scotch Whisky (7 Oct 2019)

Carol Monaghan: straining every sinew to get this sorted, when he cannot pick up a phone from Vietnam. That is incredible. This was a decision backed by the World Trade Organisation.

Backbench Business: Combat Air Strategy — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (27 Jun 2019)

Carol Monaghan: ...acquisition programme as an international collaborative programme with the UK as a prime partner. Our interests must remain aligned with our European partners—our closest neighbours—even after Brexit. That is not just because of defence interests. It is also because, through building such collaborations and alliances, our research is far richer and far better. Being able to draw upon...

Exiting the European Union: EU Settlement Scheme (27 Jun 2019)

Immigration (26 Jun 2019)

Carol Monaghan: I want to concentrate on the issues that education—particularly further and higher education in Scotland—has experienced and could potentially experience as a result of a hard Brexit. First, I would like to talk about the post-study work visa, especially in my capacity as chair of the all-party parliamentary group on photonics. Right across the central belt of Scotland, we have an...

Immigration (26 Jun 2019)

Carol Monaghan: ...people cannot get visas to come to them, we utterly diminish our position. We have recently been raising the issue of the European temporary leave to remain that has been suggested for after Brexit. It will be a visa, or some sort of certificate, for potential students that will allow them to study at our universities, and it will be for three years. Of course, in Scotland our university...

Bombardier (7 May 2019)

Carol Monaghan: .... To put that in context, that represents 4.5% of the entire workforce in Northern Ireland, and when we take into account the supply chain, the figure becomes even greater. According to Bombardier, Brexit is not a factor in the decision to sell the business, but when we were there on that visit, concerns were raised about Brexit and the impact of the removal of the UK from the single...

EU Exit Preparations: Ferry Contracts (5 Mar 2019)

Carol Monaghan: predict. There are major questions over the UK’s ability to safeguard measures such as air freight deliveries of radioisotopes. Even assuming that aviation is completely unaffected by Brexit, there will be additional costs, and there is no guarantee that the supplies will be smooth, predictable and uninterrupted. There is uncertainty over the sourcing of radioisotopes from the...

Supplementary Estimate 2018-19: Department for Education (26 Feb 2019)

Carol Monaghan: ...and all outcomes for young people, but increasing the budget for further education is only a part of that. We also have to make sure that courses are properly tailored to needs in the job market. Brexit will make this issue even more acute, so England really should be looking at what we are doing in Scotland. In Scotland, we are ensuring that college places are actually linked directly to...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (19 Feb 2019)

Carol Monaghan: ...about a six-week stockpile of medicines, but radioisotopes for cancer diagnosis and treatment cannot be stockpiled. I have asked many times about the future arrangements for radioisotopes post-Brexit, so will the Secretary of State detail them now?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Leaving the EU: Travel Disruption (14 Feb 2019)

Carol Monaghan: The Secretary of State said on Monday, “I believe in competition”, so why, after realising back in September that a no-deal Brexit would require increased freight capacity, did he embark on what has been called a “secretive and flawed procurement process”, tipping off some companies in private while leaving established companies, such as Eurotunnel, out of the loop altogether?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Leaving the EU: Tertiary Education (4 Feb 2019)

Carol Monaghan: son, like very many others, has had the privilege of studying in Europe as part of the Erasmus programme. Last Wednesday, the European Commission gave a guarantee that in the event of a no-deal Brexit, current Erasmus students would be able to complete their studies, “provided that the United Kingdom continues to honour its financial obligations under the EU budget.” Will the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Leaving the EU: Tertiary Education (4 Feb 2019)

Carol Monaghan: I thank the Minister for that answer. However, Universities UK has expressed serious concerns that, in the case of a no-deal Brexit, the Government will not commit to funding students who plan to study in Europe for the 2019-20 academic year. Unlike the Government, these young people are trying to plan what they are doing next year. Will the Minister confirm, first, whether Universities UK is...

Human Rights: Xinjiang — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (29 Jan 2019)

Carol Monaghan: ...working to weaken key human rights reviews at the UN. China remains a designated human rights priority country for the UK, but with trade and investment becoming more important for the UK in a post-Brexit Britain, there is a concern that the UK’s performance regarding human rights in China is far weaker than it should be. The Scottish First Minister met Chinese officials in April 2018,...

Leaving the EU (21 Jan 2019)

Carol Monaghan: ...once again expressed themselves in an all-Ireland vote, and the Good Friday agreement was approved. I welcome the Prime Minister’s renewed commitment to the Good Friday agreement, but a no-deal Brexit threatens this, so will the Prime Minister now assure the House that she respects the sovereignty of the Irish people, and will she take no deal off the table?

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [5th Allotted Day] (9 Jan 2019)

Carol Monaghan: We know that a no-deal Brexit is going to be economically disastrous. We also know that when an economy is wrecked in such a way, people with money, power and connections are in a position to exploit the situation for their own ends. No doubt we will see that happening if we are stupid enough to leave without a deal. Following the vote to leave, where was the political leadership? Who was...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Manufacturing and Automotive Sector (8 Jan 2019)

Carol Monaghan: The Scottish Government’s £18 million advanced manufacturing challenge fund is at serious risk of being undermined by Brexit, with the Bank of England’s analysis showing that the UK relies on the EU for more than 30% of manufacturing sales. When will the UK Government start listening to the majority of Scots and protect Scotland’s economy and jobs by keeping us in the single market and...
