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

Tommy Sheppard: In the Secretary of State’s first answer, he referred to progress at the JMC on the common frameworks, which will constrain the operation of devolved powers after Brexit. Can he update the House by saying in how many areas frameworks have been agreed, which they are and by which date he expects the remainder to be completed?

Leaving the EU — [David Hanson in the Chair] (14 Jan 2019)

Tommy Sheppard: If the Minister is so convinced that he and the Brexiteers, as he calls them, would win a second referendum, why is he so scared of letting the people have a say?

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (9 Mar 2017)

Tommy Sheppard: ...power grab”, and I do not think she meant that in a good way. Will he put her mind at rest and simply confirm that Scottish fishing and Scottish agriculture will be governed in Scotland after Brexit?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Joint Ministerial Committee (1 Mar 2017)

Tommy Sheppard: ...become the responsibility of the Scottish Parliament. When will his Department present to the Joint Ministerial Committee a list of powers that will be devolved to the Scottish Parliament after Brexit, or will he refuse to do so and simply follow instructions from No. 10?

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill: Early parliamentary general election (29 Oct 2019)

Tommy Sheppard: very grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way because I just want to clarify this on the record. At no time has any of us ever said that people did not know what they were voting for in the Brexit referendum in 2016. What we do say is that they were wilfully lied to in that campaign.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Legislative Consent (11 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: ...their entire direction with respect to this matter, will he commit today to consulting the Scottish Government and coming to an agreement with them on how to administer things in Scotland after Brexit?

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Electoral System: Overseas Interference (14 Nov 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: In the past week, the police have begun an investigation into whether Arron Banks used foreign money to buy the Brexit referendum. We have also seen Shahmir Sanni victimised for blowing the whistle on electoral crime by Vote Leave. Is it not now time for the Government to admit that the legitimacy of their mandate for the referendum is fatally compromised?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Hinkley Point C (13 Sep 2016)

Tommy Sheppard: Given that the Brexit vote has thrown the energy sector into further uncertainty and given that we know that energy from renewable sources will be cheaper than nuclear by the time Hinkley is completed, is it not now time for the UK Government to follow Scotland’s example, end this unreasonable love affair with nuclear energy and embrace cheaper, safer and more plentiful alternatives?

Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Feb 2019)

Tommy Sheppard: ...the Government of a preference as to the outcome of that choice? If he does agree, will he inform today’s debate by saying what the Government’s policy will be on either voting for a no-deal Brexit or extending article 50?

Article 50 (29 Mar 2017)

Tommy Sheppard: Last year, the Prime Minister gave her word that she would seek an agreed United Kingdom approach to Brexit with the devolved Administrations. In order to assist us in making a judgment about what her word is worth, can she give the House a single example of a suggestion or request made by the Scottish Government that she has taken on board—a single one; any one?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Discussions with Scottish Government (27 Mar 2019)

Tommy Sheppard: We can only interpret that to mean that there are circumstances in which the Secretary of State for Scotland would consent to a no-deal Brexit. In doing so, he stands against the views of the national Parliament of Scotland, of Scottish civil society and of the overwhelming majority of the Scottish people. Is it not time now to rename his post “Secretary of State against Scotland”?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: UK Shared Prosperity Fund (24 Oct 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: ...of State boasted of an efficient and responsive UK Shared Prosperity Fund, but today he admits that the Government have not even started the consultation on it. With months to go before the Brexit catastrophe, what guarantees do we have that there will be any fund fit for purpose for Wales or the other nations of the United Kingdom?

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Tommy Sheppard: for their own ends to restructure the country and its international relationships and its economy. Even now, we see a situation in which the Government are committed to pursuing the hardest of Brexits, crashing out without a deal if they deem it necessary, and even believing that that is the preferred course of action. They know that there is no majority for that course of action not...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Tommy Sheppard: I think the hon. Gentleman misunderstands what is happening. At the minute, the EU has legislative competence in 111 devolved areas, to ensure compatibility with the treaty on European Union. After Brexit, that will not be the case; what is being proposed is that the UK Parliament should be given legislative competence over these devolved areas that it currently does not have. That is a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Legislative Consent (11 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: ...Friday. Given that the Chequers agreement talks about a free trade area and a common rulebook, and therefore impacts directly on the areas that were discussed in respect of joint arrangements after Brexit, will he confirm that the content of that agreement was discussed with the Scottish Government in advance?

Cabinet Office and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Parliamentary and Local Elections (21 Feb 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: ...should have a say in its governance? Would the Minister therefore consider introducing proposals to allow those born in other countries who decide to stay and make this country their home after Brexit the right to vote and to welcome them to our democracy?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Discussions with Scottish Government (27 Mar 2019)

Tommy Sheppard: ...alternatives. I know that the Secretary of State is conflicted on this matter, but I would like to give him an opportunity to be clear with the people of Scotland. Will he still rule out a no-deal Brexit, and if the only way to achieve that is by revoking article 50, will he support that?

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Devolved Administrations: Brexit (11 Oct 2017)

Tommy Sheppard: ...commitment to transferring relevant powers to the devolved Administrations instead of foutering around. Will the right hon. Gentleman confirm that, when referring to UK-wide arrangements after Brexit, he is talking about co-decision between the UK Government and the devolved Governments—or does he mean that this Government will tell the others what to do?

Leaving the Eu: Scotland and Wales Continuity Bills (18 Apr 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: ...felt obliged to pass this legislation is the failure of the Attorney General’s Government to come to an agreement with the devolved Administrations on how things should be administered post Brexit, and at the centre of that is an insistence that the devolved Governments should be subservient to his Government. Will he now proceed on the basis of partnership and co-operation to make this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Leaving the EU: No-Deal Preparations (6 Mar 2019)

Tommy Sheppard: ...conviction has not been moderated or mellowed by the passing of the years. The latest Northern Ireland budget included £16.5 million for the Police Service of Northern Ireland to prepare for Brexit. Will the Secretary of State tell us how much of that money is being allocated to the policing of border infrastructure, either at the border itself or some distance away from it?
