Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (19 Nov 2019)

Peter Chapman: ...his is the party that would take us straight back in. The SNP has nothing to say to our fishing communities in the north-east. We should be in no doubt that the SNP’s stated objective is to stop Brexit, rejoin the EU as quickly as possible and take us straight back into the CFP. The message to our fishermen is clear. The SNP will do everything that it possibly can to keep them in the...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (19 Nov 2019)

Peter Chapman: ...that is caught by the industry in Scotland and could result in an increase of £500 million to the economy and the creation of 5,000 jobs. On this side of the chamber, we fully realise that Brexit provides a great opportunity to the fishing industry through our leaving the CFP. Leaving it behind will improve sustainability by allowing us to move from a system that is based on historical...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Products (United States Tariffs) (14 Nov 2019)

Peter Chapman: ...for Scotland does nothing to support its national drink. The fact that the tariffs have been imposed because of a disagreement between the US and the EU surely gives us even more reason to get Brexit done, so that we can strike better and more positive trade deals. The decisions to subsidise Airbus unfairly and to impose a 25 per cent tariff on—to name but two products—US bourbon and...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Products (United States Tariffs) (14 Nov 2019)

Peter Chapman: Brexit will be done before the end of next January. Scotland, and the north-east in particular, will be hugely adversely affected by decisions that are made in Brussels rather than here in the UK. The UK’s single largest trading nation is the United States, accounting for 16 per cent of all UK exports. We must fully grasp the opportunity of a trade deal with the US post-Brexit, maximise the...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Regulations (Standards and Protections) (7 Nov 2019)

Peter Chapman: .... The UK has led the way on standards, as far as animal welfare and environmental issues are concerned, for a long number of years and there is no reason to believe that that will change, post-Brexit. Our standards could rise, post-Brexit. Does the minister recognise that?

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Impact on Food and Drink) (16 May 2019)

Peter Chapman: I declare my registered interest as a partner in a farming business. In the Brexit referendum, I voted to remain. Nevertheless, as soon as I heard the result, I was committed to make it happen. Unfortunately, we all underestimated how difficult Brexit would be; as of now, we have, obviously, not left and we do not know what deal will gain Parliamentary support. I want to leave with the only...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Impact on Food and Drink) (16 May 2019)

Peter Chapman: ...support our farmers, fishermen and salmon producers who produce the high-quality food and raw materials on which our world-renowned goods are based. I have said time and again in the chamber that Brexit offers the prize of being able to design a system of support that suits our farmers and our environment here in Scotland. However, the Government has done precious little to attempt to...

Scottish Parliament: Agriculture Bill (3 Apr 2019)

Peter Chapman: As the cabinet secretary knows, an agriculture bill is essential to allow the Scottish Government to continue to make support payments to our farmers post-Brexit. Last year’s farm business income figures showed that more than 60 per cent of farms were making a loss, with the average farm business making a loss of £7,400, without receiving additional support.

Scottish Parliament: Climate Emergency (27 Mar 2019)

Peter Chapman: ...or immediate.” Therefore, the Government has a key role in facilitating and supporting the industry in its efforts to reduce emissions, and that must be part of the new support measures after Brexit. It is clear that our farmers simply do not have the information, access to new technologies or Government support to assist in such measures to tackle climate change, but if they are given...

Scottish Parliament: Supporting Scottish Agriculture (6 Mar 2019)

Peter Chapman: ...in a farming business. The debate has allowed us to have an important conversation about the future direction of travel for Scottish agriculture. I have always said that the great prize that Brexit offers is the opportunity to design a system of support that is better suited to the needs of Scottish agriculture, and to move away from the outdated CAP system, which has simply not worked for...

Scottish Parliament: Supporting Scottish Agriculture (6 Mar 2019)

Peter Chapman: ...of LFASS and funding for crofting. We fully agree, which is why we talk about it at length in our document and say that it should remain. I remind Gail Ross that there are challenges from Brexit, but also opportunities. However, we must leave with a deal. We can and will leave with a deal, and SNP MPs could help that to happen. Will they vote for it? They will not, because they want a...

Scottish Parliament: Future Rural Policy and Support (10 Jan 2019)

Peter Chapman: ...are watching with dismay and anger at the way in which many of our MSPs and MPs are putting short-term party politics ahead of our country’s long-term prospects and prosperity. The outcome of Brexit is the big question on which all else hinges. If the deal that was negotiated between the UK Government and the EU is passed next week, we will have some degree of certainty on a way forward....

Scottish Parliament: Future Rural Policy and Support (10 Jan 2019)

Peter Chapman: ...it fine, but what it really says is that the status quo will remain until 2024 but we do not know what will happen then. That is not nearly good enough . The big prize that is available from Brexit is the ability to design a system of support that is much better suited to the needs of Scottish agriculture than the CAP could ever be and yet, two and a half years on, there is no vision and...

Scottish Parliament: Future Rural Policy and Support (10 Jan 2019)

Peter Chapman: ...that all farmers can buy into simply. There can be no tension between productive agriculture and high environmental standards—both must go hand in hand. The industry is at a pivotal point. Brexit negotiations are at a critical stage, creating huge uncertainty. On top of that, we have an SNP Government that is presiding over huge cuts to LFASS payments, which is failing even to put the...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (11 Dec 2018)

Peter Chapman: The workforce is absolutely an issue. However, the decline has been going on for nearly 10 years, which is long before anyone ever spoke about Brexit, so the issue is not just Brexit. Never in the history of UK politics have our fishermen and fish processors had such a high profile. I guess that, in the past six months, fishing has been mentioned at the dispatch box at Westminster more often...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (11 Dec 2018)

Peter Chapman: I have taken two already, so I will not. It has been blatantly obvious to us all that the SNP Government has used the Brexit vote as a weapon to build more and more grievance between here and Westminster in the hope of levering another independence referendum. In fact, that tactic has changed again. At last week’s First Minister’s question time, the First Minister made it abundantly clear...

Scottish Parliament: Export of Live Animals for Slaughtering and Fattening (30 Oct 2018)

Peter Chapman: What NFU Scotland said is particularly important as we move closer to Brexit. At this crucial time, the last thing that we need is to close down potential export opportunities to mainland Europe. Many Scottish farmers are already struggling, and the latest farming income figures show just how poor returns are for the farming industry. The last thing that we need is to put in place another...

Scottish Parliament: Food and Drink (13 Sep 2018)

Peter Chapman: ...and drink success story or seen any reduction in the continued pressure on their margins. The Scottish farming industry must grow and prosper along with the rest of the sector, and the prize that Brexit offers is the opportunity to design our own support system—one better suited to our farmers’ needs. We all know the common agricultural policy is flawed, and we can do better. However,...

Scottish Parliament: Food and Drink (13 Sep 2018)

Peter Chapman: No, not at all. Let us be clear. I will say it again. I believe that the SNP wants Brexit to fail to further its own political agenda. That was clear in June when, months behind schedule, it released another consultation with more questions than answers. Our farmers need a clearer outline of how the SNP Government will structure and develop its agricultural and rural policy.

Scottish Parliament: Brexit Transition Agreement (Fishing Industry) (20 Mar 2018)

Peter Chapman: The Scottish National Party has been against Brexit from the start and would want to rejoin the EU in a heartbeat. Will the cabinet secretary confirm that current SNP policy is to rejoin the EU and the hated CFP?
