Derek Mackay: This Scottish budget prepares our economy for the opportunities of the future, enables the transformation of essential public services and builds a more inclusive and just society.

Scottish Parliament: Digital Industries (20 Nov 2018)

James Kelly: This is our third debate on digital issues in several months. The minister was right to highlight the important contribution that the digital economy can make in Scotland and that we have to get that crucial area of the economy absolutely right, as it will continue to grow.

Finance (No. 3) Bill (12 Nov 2018)

Robert Jenrick: ...as well as quoting Tiberius—I am yet to know whether Tiberius is quoted in No. 11; perhaps the Chancellor will invite my hon. Friend round for a cup of tea—was absolutely right to say that the Bill takes forward the measures in the last Budget to create a stamp duty relief for first-time buyers in other properties and extend it to those in shared ownership. That encourages and...

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...our lives talking about the problems and the harms, but it is important to note that not only here in this country but in developing countries the internet makes a tremendous difference to growing economies, making us more productive and raising living standards.

Ways and Means - Financial Statement (29 Oct 2018)

Trade Bill - Second Reading (11 Sep 2018)

Lord Lansley: ...the issue of Japan. I agree with much of what my noble friend Lord Trenchard had to say; he understands Japan extremely well. My noble friend Lady Fairhead gave us an excellent introduction to the Bill, and she spoke very well back in December in our previous debate on trade policy.
