Scottish Parliament: Scottish Government Budget (7 Jan 2020)

Derek Mackay: ...UK Government has shown a total lack of respect and has disregarded devolution and the usual custom and practice. Given the complexities in the budget process I thought that this year, with all the Brexit turmoil that we are going to face, it would have taken a more constructive and helpful approach. It is not too late for it to do that, but it has shown no sign of doing so. We will work...

Scottish Parliament: Empty Homes (7 Jan 2020)

James Dornan: ...had committed to proposing such powers during the current parliamentary session, but we have heard from the minister that they will now be delayed because of other legislative priorities and Brexit. That is disappointing. Although we recognise the increased workload that Brexit has created for the Scottish Parliament, our report calls for reconsideration of that point. The Government has...

Treasury: Productivity (7 Jan 2020)

Alison Thewliss: May I first pay tribute to the economist Professor Andrew Hughes Hallett, who passed away on Hogmanay? The Bank of England has said that pessimism and uncertainty around Brexit have had an impact on investment and productivity. That uncertainty has been compounded in Scotland by the fact that our Government found out only today in the media that the UK Government will finally be setting their...

Treasury: Topical Questions (7 Jan 2020)

Sajid Javid: ...—10 years of uninterrupted growth, which is only the third time this has been achieved since 1700. At the election, I warned of a double whammy of uncertainty that risked the economy: continued Brexit delay and an agenda from the Labour party that would bankrupt our economy. We have removed those uncertainties and the markets have welcomed that. Now, since the election, I have appointed...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (20 Dec 2019)

Rachel Maclean: .... It exceeded even the vote share of Jacqui Smith, the former Labour Home Secretary, when she represented the constituency so ably. That, I think, constitutes an overwhelming mandate for me to get Brexit done, and then move on to the priorities on which my constituents want me to focus on their behalf. One of those priorities is, of course, returning services to the Alex hospital. New...

Written Ministerial Statements — Wales Office: Government's Legislative Programme (Wales) (20 Dec 2019)

Simon Hart: ...19 December. This statement provides a summary of the programme and its application to Wales. It does not include draft bills, Law Commission bills or Finance Bills. This Government will get Brexit done. We have introduced the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill to implement the deal agreed by the Prime Minister, which will ensure our exit from the EU on 31 January. We will end...

Written Ministerial Statements — Scotland Office: Government's Legislative Programme (Scotland) (20 Dec 2019)

Alister Jack: .... This statement provides a summary of the programme and its application to Scotland. It does not include draft bills, Law Commission bills or Finance Bills. This Government will finally get Brexit done. We have introduced the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill to implement the fantastic deal agreed by the Prime Minister and ensure our exit from the EU on 31 January. We will end...

Written Ministerial Statements — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: NATO Leaders' Meeting 3-4 December 2019 (20 Dec 2019)

Dominic Raab: ...together, act together – we are stronger and safer. These steps will further strengthen the purpose and unity of an Alliance that continues to be the cornerstone of our security, and post-Brexit we will continue to reinforce its importance.

Business of the House (19 Dec 2019)

Pete Wishart: ...week back will be all about the withdrawal agreement Bill. We presumed that that would be the case, given the hurry that the Government are now in to pursue and finish off their disastrous, dismal Brexit, as I called it earlier today. I do not think it will surprise the Leader of the House to know that we will oppose the Bill, because our nation overwhelmingly rejected this Brexit, and I...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (19 Dec 2019)

Jessica Morden: ..., amplifies the challenges facing the wider steel industry. We need vision from the Government to tackle them. The steel industry should be at the forefront of the Government’s thinking in Brexit negotiations and in the construction of future trade deals. Some 40% of all UK steel produce is exported and it is vulnerable to the deterioration of our existing trading relationships with...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (1st Day): Motion to Adjourn (19 Dec 2019)

Lord Newby: My Lords, it is of course a pleasure to congratulate the mover and seconder of the humble Address. The noble Lord, Lord Lamont, has been consistent and forthright in his support of Brexit, so I am sure that the election result will have been music to his ears. I wonder whether he broke into song in his bath on Friday morning. I think the nation should be told. The noble Baroness, Lady Finn,...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (1st Day): Motion for an Humble Address (19 Dec 2019)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: ...has said, very surprisingly, that the verdict should be accepted. Even Guy Verhofstadt, who once told an enraptured Liberal Democrat conference that the EU was an empire, said last week: “Brexit will … happen. The British … have confirmed their referendum decision.” Quite so. Indeed, the war is over. Grass should now be allowed to grow over the battlefield. It is time for the...

Business of the House (19 and 20 December) (19 Dec 2019)

Pete Wishart: ..., and you have been generous to the Government in order for this debate to go ahead tomorrow. This is what the past three years have been all about: ensuring that they get their disastrous, dismal Brexit tomorrow. Scotland opposed it in 2016 and opposed it last week, and the SNP will vote against it tomorrow. Question put and agreed to.

Scottish Parliament: Referendums (Scotland) Bill (19 Dec 2019)

Neil Findlay: plans to have any referendum other than one on Scotland’s constitutional future. I accept the right to pursue that, but does he not think that, given that we do not know what will happen with Brexit, it would be irresponsible to press ahead with such a referendum?

Questions to the Mayor of London — London Growth Hubs: London Growth Hubs (19 Dec 2019)

Leonie Cooper: Just over 35% of London First businesses felt that a lack of government guidance was one of the biggest barriers in preparing for a no-deal Brexit ( is-final.pdf). What role are your nine new London Growth Hubs playing in helping businesses prepare for Brexit?

Questions to the Mayor of London — Future Immigration System: Future Immigration System (19 Dec 2019)

Sadiq Khan: The previous Government’s proposals to end Freedom of Movement together with its post-Brexit immigration plans, would have failed the capital’s economy and businesses. That’s why I called for the Home Office to drop the salary threshold for tier two visas to £21,000 and create fit-for-purpose visa routes for essential jobs. 11 per cent of the London’s transportation sector...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Mayor's Business Advisory Board: Mayor's Business Advisory Board (19 Dec 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...of London by London & Partners, the Smarter London Together Roadmap, the London Growth Hub, my immigration policy, London’s Local Industrial Strategy, environment policy and my response to Brexit.
