Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 55 - Call-in direction (4 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: I was going to ask a question about this clause, and the Minister has managed to make me even more confused. Subsection (1) states: “A public authority may request a report from the CMA before giving a subsidy, or making a subsidy scheme, of interest.” It does not state that, additionally, any other subsidy may be referred to the CMA under a voluntary referral. It might elsewhere in the...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 56 - Voluntary referral to CMA (4 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: Let me just imagine that I made an excellent speech. The concerns that I raised a few moments ago still stand. I think there should be more flexibility in the first part so that it is made clear to public authorities that they can refer something should it not fall under the specific definition of “schemes of interest”. I would appreciate it if the Minister considered tabling an amendment...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 54 - Cooling off period following mandatory referral (4 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: I have spent years looking at education reports and care inspectorate reports. There are criteria for giving marks and a particular language is used—something is good, poor or dreadful. Is the Minister expecting that “serious deficiencies” will be used by the CMA in the report? Will it say, “We consider there to be serious deficiencies”, which the Secretary of State would consider...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 52 - Mandatory referral to CMA (4 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: I agree with the hon. Lady. My concern, which I mentioned briefly when talking about the amendment, is that subsection (1) is not flexible enough. It mentions particular interests and “where directed to do so by the Secretary of State”, but I would prefer to see an additional category that says, “other reasons”, with regulation to follow if that is what the Minister suggests. There...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 51 - Nuclear energy (2 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: I would just like to ask why.

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 48 - Legacy and withdrawal agreement subsidies (2 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: If an enterprise in Northern Ireland is given a subsidy, and that enterprise has competition in or trades with both Scotland and Ireland, which regime does it need to comply with if it gets that subsidy? Does it need to comply with the state aid or subsidy control regime, or both?

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 45 - National security (2 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: It would be useful to know how widely national security is defined. Are we talking about subsidies specifically relating to, for example, new military equipment, or to much more tangential things, such as for an organisation that provides server capacity for one of the security services? How tangential can something be in order to be covered by the clause? If the Minister cannot answer, I...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 43 - Natural disasters and other exceptional circumstances (2 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: The very nature of natural disasters is that they do not occur across the entirety of the UK in one go. Let us hope a natural disaster does not occur across the whole of the UK in one go! Generally, they are regionally specific; they will happen in a relatively confined geographical area. Whether it be flooding, an earthquake or something of that sort, not everywhere will be affected....

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 42 - Chapter 2: supplementary and interpretative provision (2 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: The Minister specifically mentioned agricultural subsidies. Agriculture is devolved to the Scottish Parliament—it is a Scottish parliamentary competency—but he is suggesting that if Westminster intervenes in a devolved competency it is okay for it to not even run it by the Scottish Parliament in any formal way.

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 37 - Section 36: procedural requirements (2 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: I have a few questions about the clause. It would be helpful if the Minister could lay out what he expects the timeline to be for these requirements. The minimal financial assistance notification has to be given in advance of the subsidy being awarded. It is an intention letter that says the body intends to give the subsidy. Presumably that has to happen at any point in advance of the actual...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 34 - Information to be included in the subsidy database (2 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: It would be very helpful if when the consultation is carried out the Government were to ask enterprises whether they would prefer to see the data earlier, or the final figure. I think the Government have got it wrong on this one.

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 36 - Minimal financial assistance (2 Nov 2021)

Amendment proposed: 33, in clause 36, page 19, line 17, after “requirements” insert “with the exception of duties under section 33,”.—(Kirsty Blackman.) This amendment requires that Minimum financial assistance under £315,000 is subject to the subsidy database requirements in clause 33, despite being exempt from the other control requirements in Part 2.

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 33 - Duty to include information in the subsidy database (2 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: I have a wee comment to make on this. The Government increasing the minimum threshold required on the subsidy database is a very contentious issue that we have discussed at length, including with witnesses. A significant number of respondents to the consultation answered on the basis of the numbers put before them. It is important enough that lots of people responded to the consultation. It...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 32 - Subsidy database (2 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: It is nice to be here again, Mr Sharma. Thank you for chairing the Committee. This is an important part of the Bill. It is vital that the database is as full as possible and that people can find the information that they need. The points that were made in the evidence sessions about searching through the database were also incredibly important. There need to be search terms that people can...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (1 Nov 2021)

Michael Gove: ...and Leith (Deidre Brock) on securing £16 million for UK Government money for the Granton gasholder in her constituency. The hon. Members for Central Ayrshire (Dr Whitford), for Aberdeen North (Kirsty Blackman) and for Aberdeen South (Stephen Flynn)—and even the right hon. Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber (Ian Blackford)—have managed to secure money from either the levelling-up fund...
