Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Oct 2019)

Bill Grant: ...cannot come soon enough. Mother Nature needs our help, and the Government will ensure that she receives it. In tandem, the agriculture Bill will replace the common agricultural policy with a post-Brexit system of support that will reward farmers for encouraging biodiversity and access to the countryside rather than simply focusing on yield. I have spoken to young farmers in the last few...

Uk Shared Prosperity Fund (5 Sep 2019)

Bill Grant: ...this debate, which is important for Scotland and the whole UK.

Aside from the fact that we have seen daily evidence of considerable planning, and that we cannot possibly know today how effective such planning will be in the fullness of time, many are still...

Leaving the Eu: Preparations (3 Sep 2019)

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Strengthening the Union (10 Jul 2019)

Bill Grant: ...the European Union to justify their agenda of breaking the country apart. Can my right hon.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Immigration System (10 Jun 2019)

European Council (11 Apr 2019)

Bill Grant: I have a timber processing plant in my Ayr constituency and, for the first time in 20 years, it has maxed out its storage and, at great expense, secured additional product storage, all due to Brexit uncertainty. Does my right hon. Friend recognise that these costs cannot be borne indefinitely? Collectively, as a Parliament, we need to get the Brexit deal done to bring certainty to all our...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (1 Nov 2018)

Bill Grant: ...in the North sea oil industry to allow further investment, and our fishing community will get the welcome, albeit rather small, £10 million as we move forward and improve our fishing industry post Brexit.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Devolution (17 Oct 2018)

Bill Grant: With reference to the fairy tale of a power grab, more than 100 powers that are currently held in Brussels are to be transferred to Holyrood after breakfast—after Brexit, I mean. The sooner the better! Does my right hon. Friend agree that, far from removing powers from Scotland, leaving the EU will actually give the Scottish Parliament far more powers?

Brexit, Science and Innovation (6 Sep 2018)

Bill Grant: ...are currently being nurtured in our colleges and universities throughout the United Kingdom, and we must ensure that those arrangements do not simply survive but continue to thrive post Brexit. If we peruse the alumni of such colleges and universities, it is clear that students attend from many parts of the world, with many going on to complete PhDs here in the United Kingdom. Similarly,...

Economies of the UK Islands — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (9 May 2018)

Bill Grant: ...traditional incomes from crofting, farming, fishing, and, in some cases, fish farming. The right hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr Carmichael) suggested there might be opportunities post-Brexit to adjust the system to assist the communities further. They really need that assistance. Oil and gas are players in a number of island economies mainly to the north of Scotland. Tiree, which...

Referendum on Scottish Independence — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Nov 2017)

Bill Grant: It is there to be seen. I am sorry if the hon. Gentleman cannot see the comparison I am making, but it is clear. Given that we are going through the process of Brexit, we would do well to be a cohesive United Kingdom instead of sniping from the wings, which is constantly done by the SNP. One of the phrases coined during the referendum was, “Proud to be Scots. Delighted to be united”. It...
