Scottish Parliament: Fishing (17 Jan 2017)

Peter Chapman: ...would be protected and that they recognise the huge prize that could be won. As Theresa May set out today, now is the time for the whole country to unite behind getting the best deal possible from Brexit and making it work for everyone. To that end, I encourage Scottish Government ministers—as I have in the past—to engage fully with their UK counterparts, to stop trying to increase...

Scottish Parliament: Sea Fisheries and End-year Negotiations (7 Dec 2016)

Peter Chapman: ...the deal, but it was outvoted. The cod will be of great interest to Portuguese, French and Dutch fishing crews, but totally useless for our industry, because our fishermen do not fish there. Post-Brexit, the UK will have far greater control over who fishes in our waters and the rules governing them. We will trade away fish only for other tonnage that our fishermen can catch and have a...

Scottish Parliament: Sea Fisheries and End-year Negotiations (7 Dec 2016)

Peter Chapman: That is exactly what I am saying. Post-Brexit, we will have such control. I have emphasised that. I read with interest Fergus Ewing’s comments in yesterday’s Press and Journal , in which he quite rightly blamed the CFP for the last-minute Norway deal. I do not understand how he squares that stance with his desire to remain in the EU and thus keep the fishing industry subject to the CFP....

Scottish Parliament: Sea Fisheries and End-year Negotiations (7 Dec 2016)

Peter Chapman: ...of 28 countries under majority voting, so it is inevitable that the UK will not always win every fight around that table. That is why, when industry leaders talk about the sea of opportunity that Brexit presents, I take them seriously. We will be a sovereign nation controlling some of the best fishing waters in the world. Our decisions and our trade-offs will be made with the UK’s best...

Scottish Parliament: Rural Economy (European Union Referendum) (27 Sep 2016)

Peter Chapman: ...should not be surprised by that when, in the words of the First Minister, independence transcends everything else. She said: “The case for full self-government ultimately transcends the issues of Brexit, of oil, of national wealth and balance sheets”. That is a shocking statement. It would shock unemployed oil workers in the north-east, and it would shock all those who are waiting to...

Scottish Parliament: Rural Economy (European Union Referendum) (27 Sep 2016)

Peter Chapman: That is the democracy that we have until we change it. There has been much talk of uncertainty following Brexit, but there would also have been great uncertainty for farmers, fishermen and crofters if we had remained in the EU. We do not know—and we will not know for some time—what the next common agricultural policy system will look like, but we know that, year in and year out, CAP...

Scottish Parliament: Rural Economy (European Union Referendum) (27 Sep 2016)

Peter Chapman: ...SNP understood their concerns about “Brussels mismanagement”. They may even have cheered when Mike Russell was appointed to Nicola Sturgeon’s cabinet as the minister with responsibility for Brexit, as he co-authored a book called “Grasping the Thistle” in which he wrote that trade, not political integration, should be the basis of our relationship with Europe. The fervour with...

Scottish Parliament: Rural Economy (European Union Referendum) (27 Sep 2016)

Peter Chapman: ...know the huge prize in being able to set the rules in some of the richest fishing grounds in the world. That said, we cannot allow our vital fishing industry to be used as a bargaining chip in Brexit negotiations. I am glad to say that some members of the SNP see Brexit as an opportunity. Councillor John Cox, an SNP councillor, has recognised the opportunity that Brexit presents for...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2016-17 (7 Sep 2016)

Peter Chapman: ...cannot afford to be at the mercy of the SNP’s incompetence again. I recently met leaders of the offshore fishing industry in Peterhead, who explained the many potential benefits of the Brexit result. I cannot understand the SNP’s denial of the potential benefits for the fishing industry. We have some of the best fishing waters in the world, and getting control over them will be a huge...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2016-17 (7 Sep 2016)

Peter Chapman: We have two years to get to that position, and in the meantime nothing will change. I am talking about the many potential benefits of Brexit, and I cannot understand the SNP’s denial of those benefits. When fishermen list the priorities that would help their industry to grow and that would support coastal towns, will the SNP listen? Sadly, no. When a group disagrees with the Government...
