Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (14 Oct 2019)

Jamie Stone: I reinforce the point I made to the right hon. Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber (Ian Blackford). Any form of Brexit is potentially so damaging to the interests of my constituents. I must put my constituency first, which is why I cannot vote for any form of deal. I want to make that plain and have it on the record. My constituents must come first.

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Jamie Stone: ...seen to be an arrogant Member of this House. I always try to represent the interests of the far north of Scotland. Will the hon. Gentleman, and others in the Chamber, at least accept that a no-deal Brexit would ruin the crofters and sheep farmers in my constituency, and that would lead to the second highland clearances?

Acquired Brain Injury (9 May 2019)

Jamie Stone: ...hon. Member for Ayr, Carrick and Cumnock (Bill Grant) will recall. I have mentioned several times in this place the issue of getting disabled people back into work. At a time, whatever happens with Brexit, when we must play to all our strengths—we must play every card we hold—we have a lot of people who have been ill or are partially disabled who have great abilities that they could...

Leaving the European Union (26 Feb 2019)

Jamie Stone: Highlands and Islands Enterprise carried out a survey of businesses and firms in the highlands and islands and found that 70% of those businesses see Brexit as a significant risk for their future. More worryingly, only some 13% of these firms see themselves as being adequately prepared for Brexit. Two weeks ago, the Prime Minister gave me a helpful answer on the shared prosperity fund. I...

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

Jamie Stone: There is a tendency among those who favour Brexit to think that maybe it would be good for us to tighten our belts, and that a little reduction in income is something we can get over. However, I represent the furthest away part of mainland Britain. I have businesses that will go bust if we have a hard, no-deal Brexit. Their owners will lose their livelihood, as will all the people who work in...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Supply Chains (8 Jan 2019)

Jamie Stone: I ask this question against the background of yesterday’s unthinkable dry run for a no-deal Brexit— 80 lorries is hardly the same as 6,000. I represent the furthest-away part of the UK mainland. I have mentioned before in the Chamber Mr William Calder, who runs a fish food company in Scrabster. Half a day’s extra delay in getting his fish products to the European market will ruin the...

Oil and Gas Industry — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (9 Oct 2018)

Jamie Stone: ...with incredibly inclement conditions, but the technology has moved forward. There is much more subsea work, but there is the new oil. My point is this: I wish I knew what was going to happen with Brexit. I do not know, and I am sure many Members will tease me and say, “Would a Lib Dem know anyway?” However, I am damn sure that the contribution that the oil industry has made in the...

Combat Air Strategy (17 Jul 2018)

Jamie Stone: It would be churlish and mean-spirited not to acknowledge that there is much that is very good in the Secretary of State’s statement. However, does he agree that a no-deal Brexit would hamper his well-intentioned idea of working with European partners?

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Jamie Stone: If I interpret correctly what the Minister has just said, I rather fancy that she is making a false correlation between those of us who are perceived as Unionists and support for Brexit. I very luckily won my seat just over a year ago as a self-proclaimed remainer—there was a swing to the Liberal Democrats. I suggest to the Minister, with all due respect, that that was more about a...

School Funding (25 Apr 2018)

Jamie Stone: Thinking of the future, whichever side we were on in the Brexit debate, this country will face real challenges. We must upskill like we have never done before if we are to compete. If nothing else, that is one dashed good reason for investing in our young people and in education.

Disabled People and Economic Growth (22 Feb 2018)

Jamie Stone: ...that is out there. Goodness knows, in the next few years, we are going to have to mobilise everything we have in the UK, because it will be an ever more difficult and competitive world. Be it Brexit or be it remain, that will be the reality, and we will have to use every single person we have to do the best we can. People will relish that opportunity—I have absolutely no doubt about...

Leaving the EU: No-deal Alternatives — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (21 Feb 2018)

Jamie Stone: ..., but it is against that candle that I will hold all proposals in all their complexity. What do they mean for my constituency? Where will the replacement investment come from, whether we have hard Brexit, soft Brexit, membership of one organisation or membership of another? I need to know what will happen. Let us put it this way: my constituents voted remain by a majority and they can see...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (25 Jan 2018)

Jamie Stone: ...on a strong Scottish sheep farming sector. Hill farming and crofting are vital for the local economy of my constituency. The Secretary of State may say that this is a devolved matter, but come Brexit will he work as closely as possible with the Scottish Government in sharing best practice and knowledge to make sure that my constituents’ livelihood is safeguarded as far as is humanly possible?

Disability Confident Scheme — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (10 Jan 2018)

Jamie Stone: .... The issue is about getting the disabled back to work. It is about giving the disabled dignity, quality of life and self-esteem. Whatever side hon. Members and right hon. Members were on in the Brexit debate, the fact is that as the UK goes into new waters we will have to maximise and utilise our workforce like never before. We will have to use every bit of brainpower and every bit of...

Christmas Adjournment (21 Dec 2017)

Jamie Stone: ...have a get together, a meeting of minds between both levels of government, perhaps we could work together to tackle the issue. As everyone in this Chamber knows, I am a remainer. Whatever form Brexit Britain takes, we will absolutely need connectivity in the future if we are to compete in a world market. I hope that we can all accept that. Equally, I have mentioned universal credit many...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (15 Nov 2017)

Jamie Stone: This has already been raised in the Chamber, but does the hon. Gentleman agree that today’s story in the papers about whatever the Russians did that may have skewed the Brexit referendum result is a very worrying issue?

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

Jamie Stone: ...outward-looking and dealt with nations right across the world. That is something we should be proud of, and that is what we should concentrate on in the future. Whatever side we were on in Brexit, Scotland has a role in the world, and it is a positive one. We can unite on that, but to do so we must put the divisions behind us. I am repeating myself, but they were bad, ugly, and they...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (17 Oct 2017)

Jamie Stone: Will the Foreign Secretary respond to claims by a senior German politician, Michael Fuchs, that the Foreign Secretary is a significant factor in holding back progress in Brexit talks? Does he believe that his recent interventions on Brexit help or hinder these negotiations?
