Results 1–20 of 2000 for devolved power in scotland in the 'Commons debates'

Business of the House (1 Dec 2022)

Penny Mordaunt: As the hon. Lady suggests, I am a simple girl. I read the evidence from the Committee sitting to which she referred, and I understand that Secretary of State for Scotland will clarify the matter that she mentioned. I can tell her that the Scottish Government’s spending the unrestricted funds that they get on their project of a further referendum is a colossal waste of money. The Scottish...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc) Bill (29 Nov 2022)

Stella Creasy: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. I know that he was frustrated by it. That is why I am speaking today. We have seen the frustration, and for three years women in Northern Ireland have seen multiple letters traded between Departments but little change. It is worth reflecting that even during the pandemic, women from Northern Ireland were still travelling to England and Wales,...

Energy Security (29 Nov 2022)

Grant Shapps: My right hon. Friend is right. In Wales and Scotland, the devolved Administrations need to support new nuclear provision to provide energy security for their constituents. He talked about 43.1% of our energy coming from renewable power. Opposition Members said that it could not be done, but it has been done ahead of time and we will only go further.

Scottish Referendum Legislation: Supreme Court Decision (23 Nov 2022)

Sammy Wilson: The legal position is now clear, but the political decision that needs to be made must also be clear. Under no circumstances should the power to hold referendums be devolved—be it to Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales—because we know that nationalism-obsessed politicians will use that power to call continual referendums until they get the result they want, to distort political debate,...

Prime Minister: Engagements (23 Nov 2022)

Rishi Sunak: When it comes to Scottish democracy, I am pleased that the Scottish Government have one of the most powerful devolved assemblies anywhere in the world. I was pleased, very shortly after becoming Prime Minister, to be the first Prime Minister in over a decade to attend the British-Irish Council and sit down with the First Minister to explore ways in which we can work together with the Scottish...

Autumn Statement Resolutions - Energy (Oil and Gas) Profits Levy (21 Nov 2022)

Gavin Newlands: Surely the biggest headline from the Chancellor’s statement came from the Government’s own Office for Budget Responsibility’s forecast of a 7.1% drop in household living standards over the coming two years, which will be the biggest fall since the second world war. Real wages will fall as inflation hits hard and, as spending in the economy slumps early next year, the effect on retail...

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy (2 Nov 2022)

Nia Griffith: It is very important that we do not confuse the institution of the UK Government with this shambles of a Tory Government. Their performance over the past 12 years, compounded by the disastrous Budget on 23 September and followed by four weeks of inaction in which they were too slow to stop the damage, has left people up and down the country in real difficulties. It has left our allies...

UK Infrastructure Bank Bill [Lords] (1 Nov 2022)

Stewart Hosie: On what has just been said, the issues relating to the power of direction in clause 4 and the steer that can be given on the strategic priorities by the Treasury deserve to be explored in a little more detail. When I see words like “the Government will not normally” and I think about what the Government do not normally do in relation to Scotland, I think the hon. Member for North East...

Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill: New Clause 1 - The Genetic Technology Authority (31 Oct 2022)

Mark Spencer: ...from across the Chamber? I will seek to give colleagues some reassurance. I will start with the comments from the hon. Member for Aberdeen North (Kirsty Blackman), who spoke to new clause 9, in the name of her hon. Friend the Member for Edinburgh North and Leith (Deidre Brock). The mutual recognition principle in the UKIM Act means that goods that comply with the relevant legislative...

Child Support Collection (Domestic Abuse) Bill (28 Oct 2022)

Tom Pursglove: My hon. Friend asks a very good question, and I am keen to obtain an answer for him on that point. He will appreciate that I am only a few hours into the role and this is quite an involved question but, of course, he raises an important point. I will make sure he receives a full response following this debate. The CMS also ensures that there is no unwanted contact between parents, and it...

National Food Strategy and Food Security (27 Oct 2022)

Pete Wishart: I congratulate the right hon. Member for Tatton (Esther McVey) and the hon. Member for Bristol East (Kerry McCarthy) on raising this important issue. This has been a largely consensual debate. I will try not to spoil that tone, perhaps unsurprisingly, Madam Deputy Speaker —not by much, anyway. It is almost unbelievable that here we are in 2022 discussing food security, but such is the...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (25 Oct 2022)

Patrick Grady: Some 78% of voters in Glasgow North voted to remain in the European Union in 2016, but now in this Bill they find out what “Brexit means Brexit” really means: not just moving away from European directives and regulations, but an attempt to literally erase from history the fact that the UK statute book was ever influenced by them at all. It was this Government who invented the concept of...

Motor Neurone Disease (20 Oct 2022)

Jim Shannon: It is a real pleasure to speak in this debate. I commend the hon. Member for Northampton South (Andrew Lewer) for setting the scene so well. I also commend others for their contributions and look forward to those to come from Back Benchers, the shadow Minister and the Minister. Most of us here will be aware of what MND is: a fatal, rapidly progressive disease that affects the brain and the...

Energy Prices Bill: Domestic energy price reduction schemes for Great Britain (17 Oct 2022)

Rosie Winterton: With this it will be convenient to discuss the following: Amendment 10, in clause 2, page 3, line 5, leave out “negative” and insert “affirmative”. Clause 2 stand part. Amendment 11, in clause 3, page 4, line 7, leave out “negative” and insert “affirmative”. Clauses 3 to 8 stand part. Amendment 19, in clause 9, page 8, line 3, at end insert— ‘(2A) Within...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill (13 Oct 2022)

Alison Thewliss: I absolutely agree and share my hon. Friend’s concerns. Graham Barrow does great work on Twitter and in other places to highlight such scenarios. Whether or not that person exists, whether or not that company is valid, and whether that money is even being invested anywhere, never mind in this company—this exposes the nature of the garbage in the Companies House register. The...
