Home Affairs Committee (21 Jul 2022)

Alistair Carmichael: I thank the right hon. Lady and her Committee for a typically thorough and well-reasoned report. It is an important contribution to this area of policy. Just this morning the independent chief inspector of borders and immigration reported that the Home Office response to dangerous channel crossings is “both ineffective and inefficient, exposing gaps in security procedures and leaving...

International Trade: Free Trade Agreements: Scrutiny (21 Jul 2022)

Alistair Carmichael: We all know what Government undertakings in relation to trade agreements are worth, and it is not an awful lot. If the Secretary of State does not believe me, she can ask the farmers and crofters in my constituency. Is the breach of the undertaking on the trade agreement with Australia to be a one-off, or is it the start of a course of conduct?

Australia-UK Free Trade Agreement: Scrutiny (19 Jul 2022)

Alistair Carmichael: I remind the House of my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. I congratulate the hon. Member for Totnes (Anthony Mangnall) not just on securing the urgent question, but on the vigour with which he prosecuted it. What the Minister has told us today is not what we were promised by way of scrutiny, and it is not adequate, especially since we now know that the current Foreign...

Protecting and Restoring Nature: COP15 and Beyond (14 Jul 2022)

Alistair Carmichael: I have been here for quite a while now—I am just a quiet presence, so I would not be noticed. With all that the hon. Lady has set out being the case, does she agree that it remains incomprehensible that the Scottish and UK Governments both continue to allow industrial-scale fishing with gillnets, which not only leaves a massive amount of plastic pollution but is an utterly unsustainable way...

Scottish Affairs Committee (14 Jul 2022)

Alistair Carmichael: Like others, I offer the hon. Member for Perth and North Perthshire (Pete Wishart) all the deference that he deserves. The hon. Member for Moray (Douglas Ross) said that the banks are “morally bankrupt”. Let us not forget that, but for the taxpayer, they would also be financially bankrupt. We have recently seen the withdrawal of the Bank of Scotland from Stromness in my...

Prime Minister’s Meeting with Alexander Lebedev (7 Jul 2022)

Alistair Carmichael: “Not satisfactory”—I admire your magnificent understatement, Mr Speaker. Surely this admission illustrates why this man cannot remain as Prime Minister, even as a caretaker. He is simply not to be trusted. I have seen four other Prime Ministers stand at the Government Dispatch Box in my time in the House, and I cannot imagine any one of them becoming involved in an enterprise such as...

Functioning of Government (7 Jul 2022)

Alistair Carmichael: I am delighted to hear the Minister speaking positively about the role of the civil service. That contrasts rather well with the way the Government in recent years have done nothing but traduce and undermine its position. I must say that the Prime Minister cannot remain as a caretaker. That is just putting the bull in charge of the china shop. This is not all about Ministers and politicians;...

Standards in Public Life (5 Jul 2022)

Alistair Carmichael: In response to Sue Gray’s interim report, the Prime Minister announced that he would set up an office of the Prime Minister to address what she had identified as “fragmented and complicated” leadership structures that, in turn, “led to the blurring of lines of accountability.” Given the variety of conflicting accounts that we have heard in the past few days, how does the Minister...
