Brexit (Economic Risks)

Scottish Parliament: Queensferry Crossing Construction Team (Meetings) (24 May 2017)

Keith Brown: ...and the guidance that has been issued have changed. Of course, that has produced some changes that we may wish to take advantage of, but if people such as Neil Findlay have their way and Brexit happens, those guidelines and standards will be absent, which could be damaging for such projects in future. I hope that that will not happen.

Scottish Parliament: Public Sector Pay Policy 2017-18 (Equality Impact Assessment) (24 May 2017)

Derek Mackay: ...I have made the point that I am sympathetic to the workforce over the inflation issues. We know how inflation is being affected by wider economic circumstances, which have been partly caused by the Brexit decision and the pressures from that. I have said that I will continue to engage with the trade unions, and I will do so, especially as we look at our pay policy in the light of financial...

Scottish Parliament: National Parks (24 May 2017)

Graeme Dey: ...Natural Heritage report on the future vision for Scotland’s uplands to digest and act on, is it realistic to increase that workload, especially as it is set to be added to greatly by the consequences of Brexit? We should recognise that deer management, wildlife crime, land use in the uplands and biodiversity are, to varying degrees, issues of direct relevance to the existing parks...

Brexit Negotiations (Fishing Industry)

Scottish Parliament: Fishing Industry (West Coast) (18 May 2017)

Humza Yousaf: stand with fishing communities right across Scotland. Let me say this to the member: as a result of yesterday’s vote, the majority of this Parliament decided that, whatever happens in the Brexit process, on exiting the EU, we must have full powers over fisheries. He and his party have a choice. Will they stand with Scotland’s fishing communities and with the majority vote of...

Scottish Parliament: Cabinet (Meetings) (18 May 2017)

..., I say first that it says a lot about the priorities of Theresa May and the Tories when they go out of their way to deny Parliament any say over the hugely important issues that are associated with Brexit and yet they are committed to giving Parliament a free vote on reintroducing fox hunting. If ever something said that a Government had completely the wrong priorities, I suspect that...

Scottish Parliament: Shop Vacancy Rate (18 May 2017)

...heart of the question. The member cites Scotland’s wider economic performance. Like other parts of the UK, we have work to do to get our economy growing faster, but that will not be helped by the extreme Brexit that the Tories are pursuing. However, yesterday we saw unemployment again fall below the UK average and employment in Scotland increase, and productivity growth in Scotland...

Scottish Parliament: Partnership Action for Continuing Employment (18 May 2017)

Paul Wheelhouse: ...challenges that continue to face the oil and gas sector, the Scottish economy has remained resilient through 2016. Compounding those challenges, however, is the heightened uncertainty created by Brexit, which has led to consumer confidence falling in Scotland, as elsewhere in the UK. That said, it is vital to note that Scotland’s economy grew by 0.4 per cent in 2016 and that...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries (17 May 2017)

Peter Chapman: ..., that their fish are in great demand in Europe—indeed, buyers are queueing up to get the top-quality fish that we supply, which is often unavailable elsewhere. It is also a fact that our stance in the Brexit negotiations is to get a comprehensive free trade deal. Why should we not get a free trade deal, given that such a deal is as much to the Europeans’ benefit as it is to...

Scottish Parliament: Engagements (11 May 2017)

...priorities. First, when Ruth Davidson talks about the time spent in this chamber debating the constitution, what she is trying to distract attention from is the fact that that time has been spent debating the implications of Brexit and the disaster that the Tory party is leading this country into. Secondly, over the past week, the Scottish Tories have churned out press release after press...

Scottish Parliament: Keeping Children Safe Online (11 May 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: leader in creating a safe online world for citizens in their business lives. At €100 a pop, it remains too expensive for mass deployment to all—what I am holding up at the moment is a paper copy of an Estonian e-resident card; I have not spent €100 on one—but in the post-Brexit world, many UK citizens are looking at becoming Estonian e-residents, because of...

Scottish Parliament: Public Health (Noise Pollution) (10 May 2017)

Aileen Campbell: ...a framework for noise management is necessary. Even though environmental standards are a European Union requirement, the Scottish Government will continue to maintain, protect and enhance them post-Brexit.

Scottish Parliament: General Practice (10 May 2017)

Shona Robison: ...quote the Royal College of General Practitioners’ concerns, which it expressed today, that if the 226 GPs from other European Union countries who are working in Scotland have to leave following Brexit, the consequences for patient safety could be grave. We do not hear the Tories quoting the RCGP on that; I wonder why.

Scottish Parliament: Public Health (Cycling) (10 May 2017)

Aileen Campbell: ...will negotiate with the UK Government to ensure that future financial support for the range of initiatives that are currently supported by EU funds is allocated fairly and equitably across the UK post-Brexit. The member is right to recognise that, in all areas of life, the mess that the UK Government has got us into with Brexit and its lack of clarity and engagement will impact on many...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service Pay (10 May 2017)

Shona Robison: ...unions, to jointly commission work, developing an evidence base to assess the impact of pay restraint, using this evidence as part of the submission to the next pay round of the NHS Independent Pay Review body; remains concerned that Brexit is continuing to be a cause of uncertainty for staff from other parts of the EU working in the NHS, and believes that the rights of these committed...

Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (10 May 2017), developing an evidence base to assess the impact of pay restraint, using this evidence as part of the submission to the next pay round of the NHS Independent Pay Review body; remains concerned that Brexit is continuing to be a cause of uncertainty for staff from other parts of the EU working in the NHS, and believes that the rights of these committed staff should be guaranteed...

Scottish Parliament: Food Banks (9 May 2017)

Neil Findlay: ...of all, we need a redistributive tax policy that directs money into areas of most need. Presiding Officer, I am just finishing. This topic deserves much more time than a members’ business debate. We have had 20 or so debates on every aspect of Brexit. I wish that we had had 20 debates on issues such as this.

Scottish Parliament: Population (3 May 2017)

Kenneth Gibson: ...Minister agree that while Scotland’s population is slowly increasing, the number of excess deaths over births—despite the best efforts of the Presiding Officer—is of concern, and that a hard Brexit that stops free movement of people will not only end Scotland’s population growth but lead to real skills shortages and damage our economy?
