Scottish Parliament: Scotland Act 1998 (Section 30 Order) (11 Dec 2019)

Michael Russell: ...members who are sitting around him. The health service is doing well and continues to have high patient satisfaction. I say to Mr Whittle that, for me, constitutional obsession would be defined by Brexit, as pursued by his party in government. It has cost Scotland millions, and it is costing the UK billions. Nothing has happened in a legislative sense, and we are being impoverished for no...

Scottish Parliament: Freedom of Movement (National Health Service) (11 Dec 2019)

Joan McAlpine: 7. To ask the Scottish Government what analysis has been done of the impact that ending freedom of movement for European Union citizens after Brexit will have on the national health service. (S5O-03897)

Scottish Parliament: Independence Preparations (Spending) (11 Dec 2019)

Michael Russell: ...again. It would be a better informed question, because it would be a different question. Let me deal with the question of costs. To date, the United Kingdom Government has spent £66 billion on Brexit; that is the cost to the economy, plus the cost to the Government. Standard and Poor’s found that Brexit has already cost the UK economy £66 billion. That is the result of the decision by...

Scottish Parliament: Migration Advisory Committee (11 Dec 2019)

Ben Macpherson: The number of applications for the EU settlement scheme continues to rise. As we anticipated, there was a significant uplift in October this year, before the Brexit deadline. We continue to invest in our support services through the Citizens Advice Scotland network of bureaux, where individuals who would like support and, crucially, advice on the EU settlement scheme can get it face-to-face,...

Scottish Parliament: European Union (Relations) (11 Dec 2019)

Shona Robison: Does the cabinet secretary agree that any form of Brexit will be hugely damaging, not only for my constituents in Dundee but for the whole of Scotland? Does she also agree that, tomorrow, the people of Scotland have the opportunity to take Scotland’s future into its own hands, to stop Boris Johnson, stop the Tories and stop Brexit—

Scottish Parliament: Transient Visitor Levy (11 Dec 2019)

Fiona Hyslop: absolutely essential that the tourism interests of Aberdeen City Council are used as the basis. However, that will not cause the biggest damage to tourism jobs. The biggest damage will come from Brexit, which was introduced by the Tory Government. Loss of visitor numbers and staff will have a far bigger impact than any of the projections that Tom Mason is citing, however incorrect they are.

Scottish Parliament: General Election (Private Conversations) (11 Dec 2019)

...that I can to ensure that we do not wake up on Friday morning to a Boris Johnson Government, because a Tory Government will mean more cuts to our public services, rising child poverty and a hard Brexit. That is what a Tory Government will mean for Scotland, and the way to stop that happening is to vote SNP. The SNP is the main challenger to the Tories in Scotland, so if we want not to be...

Scottish Parliament: Human Rights Defenders (10 Dec 2019)

Mary Fee: ...are human rights. We must do all that we can to defend the rights of the Gypsy Traveller community in Scotland. I could address a number of other issues, such as the on-going damaging potential of Brexit. However, with the time that I have left, I will raise a couple of small issues that are happening across the globe right now. In Myanmar, little action has been taken against the...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service Staffing (Freedom of Movement) (5 Dec 2019)

Clare Adamson: ...Trust, which warned that ending freedom of movement of European Union citizens poses a “very real risk” to NHS staffing numbers? Does the First Minister agree that Scotland needs to escape Brexit and protect our public services?

Scottish Parliament: Environmental Governance (4 Dec 2019)

Jenny Marra: her wake, to ask the Scottish Government what its response is to the recommendations in the Scottish Environment LINK report, “Environmental Governance: effective approaches for Scotland post-Brexit”. (S5O-03856)

Scottish Parliament: Food and Drink Industry (Support) (4 Dec 2019)

Fergus Ewing: ...a couple of years’ work and after constant representations have been made about the importance of such matters, we have not made any progress on the detail. Sadly, the UK Government is fixated on Brexit. We are also now worried that a trade deal with the USA might further compromise the standards of our agricultural produce. Such a proposal would be utterly unacceptable to the Scottish...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries (Gear Conflict) (4 Dec 2019)

Fergus Ewing: ...said that that is precisely what would be against the interests of the Scottish fishing sector. Mr Chapman should go and read his newspaper, where he will see that fishermen are turning away from Brexit and from the glib and overexaggerated promises that have bored us for far too long. Moreover, our fishermen are concerned about equivalence: measures that are imposed on them must also be...

Scottish Parliament: Farming (Support for Environmental Sustainability) (4 Dec 2019)

Richard Lyle: Does the minister share my concern that if the Tories win the UK election and we are forced to Brexit, our current high environmental standards, which protect plant and tree health and animal welfare, will be driven down and abandoned in a race to the bottom in order to win dodgy trade deals?

Scottish Parliament: Achieving a Fairer Scotland (4 Dec 2019)

Aileen Campbell: ...two-child cap and rape clause, the diabolical universal credit roll-out and other changes are having a drastic impact on families throughout the country. On top of that, we face the uncertainty of Brexit. Independent analysis has predicted that leaving the European Union will result in the economy shrinking, which will threaten jobs, incomes and Government revenues. Recent Scottish...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Growth Scheme (Investment in North East Scotland) (28 Nov 2019)

Derek Mackay: .... I have gone through that forensically at the Economy, Energy and Fair Work Committee. One of the reasons that we heard for some investment being pulled, or not being seen through to the end, was Brexit uncertainty, and whose fault is that? It is the Tories who have put us in the position of Brexit uncertainty. A no-deal Brexit would be calamitous for Scotland’s economy. What part of...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Elections (Franchise and Representation) Bill: Stage 1 (28 Nov 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: ...on prisoner voting, a person is deprived of their liberty as a punishment and perhaps for the protection of society. In other jurisdictions—I have a niece who is now a Swedish citizen because of Brexit, so I am particularly well informed about Sweden—better connections are retained between people who have to be deprived of their liberty and their pre-prison lives, and we find that the...

Scottish Parliament: Emergency Food Parcels (Fife) (27 Nov 2019)
