Anti-corruption Summit — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (3 May 2016)

Tommy Sheppard: ...Act 2016 will still cover only a minority of taxation and regulation in that country, but the UK Government could learn much from Scotland’s GAAR about toughening up the regulations. Perhaps the Brexit debate is the elephant in the room. Much has been achieved in recent years at European level, through the EU, on anti-laundering legislation. I accept that, in theory, if we were to leave...

Civil Service Compensation Scheme (19 Mar 2019)

Tommy Sheppard: ...and those on whom they depend to implement their policies. Something is awry and it needs to put right. That is even more true when we consider what is about to befall the public sector, if Brexit goes ahead. The degree of upheaval, change and restructuring that will be necessary to cope with leaving the European Union will undoubtedly require the good will and support of the workforce. I...

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

Tommy Sheppard: early second referendum. We said, “For example, one thing might be Scotland being taken out of the European Union against its will”. That was stated as an example, by the way, before the Brexit vote and before we knew how Scotland would vote or, indeed, how people in the rest of the United Kingdom would vote. That change of circumstance came to pass. We did not just outline those...

EU Membership: Second Referendum — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (3 Dec 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: ...which people made their original decision is in some way compromised, either because it was wrong or because it is now obsolete and has been superseded by further developments. With regard to the Brexit referendum, I do not think anyone can argue other than that the information on which people based their decision was fatally flawed. In response to the statement by the hon. Member for...

Opposition Day - [15TH Allotted Day, 1ST Part]Opposition Day: Claim of Right for Scotland (4 Jul 2018)

Tommy Sheppard: ...a powers bonanza. In a previous debate, the hon. Member for East Renfrewshire (Paul Masterton) listed a whole range of things that would become the responsibility of the Scottish Parliament after Brexit. However, we misunderstand if we think that responsibility is the same as power. At the same time as those areas of responsibility are being transferred to the Scottish Parliament, the...

Proportional Representation — [James Gray in the Chair] (30 Oct 2017)

Tommy Sheppard: ...this place, and I very much hope that this is the start of the next phase of a push for reform of our voting system in this country. As the events of the next few years unravel and we go through Brexit, we will see constitutional upheaval anyway. In the midst of that, we can seize the opportunity to try to improve our democratic system. The Scottish National party supports the...

20 Years of Devolution (11 Jul 2019)

Tommy Sheppard:—more every day—who question whether the British state is able to articulate their views and their character, either in this country or abroad. That change has been turbo-charged by Brexit and the growth of right-wing English nationalism, so that many more people than before are now open to the prospect of Scottish independence. There is much more that I want to say, Mr Speaker,...
