Constitutional Law (21 Mai 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: All I am trying to establish is whether the UK Government are telling us that the quantum of these borrowing limits is to be agreed between the UK Government and the Scottish Government, or whether in law, that figure is determined by the UK Treasury. Which is it?

Constitutional Law (21 Mai 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: I must start by reflecting how glad I am to see that this topic has captivated the imagination of the House with the participation here today. Let me start by agreeing with the shadow Secretary of State on one point: if anything reflects the zombie nature of this Parliament, it is the fact that we are spending 90 minutes on the Floor of the House discussing something that usually would be...

Constitutional Law (21 Mai 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: I think I agree with the sentiments expressed by the hon. Gentleman. To come back to the discussion on capital borrowing requirements, the other important point that must surely be made, which reflects what he says about who is responsible, is that there is context. That context is a 16% cut—16.1%, to be exact—in the block grant available for capital funding of public services in...

Constitutional Law (21 Mai 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: I agree with that. I was just coming on to talk about the impact of these cuts and the fact that, even with increased borrowing by the Scottish Government, we are still talking in overall terms about a 9% reduction in the capital budget in Scotland. A 9% reduction means that some big projects are going to be delayed and some are going to be shelved. People who are looking for a new building...

Constitutional Law (21 Mai 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: I will not, if the hon. Gentleman does not mind, because I am just about to—

Constitutional Law (21 Mai 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: Really? All right.

Constitutional Law (21 Mai 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: Indeed. This is the final point that I want to make. Let us remember that when we talk about Scottish Government borrowing—the entire thing that we are talking about here—it is borrowing with the permission of, and guaranteed by, the UK Treasury. It is not possible for the Scottish Government to do a deal with a private sector house builder and get some private finance to build more...

Energy Security and Net Zero: District Heating Network Consumers (21 Mai 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: What assessment she has made of the adequacy of financial support for district heating network consumers.

Energy Security and Net Zero: District Heating Network Consumers (21 Mai 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: That is rather disappointing. I have more than 100 constituents in the Greendykes area of Edinburgh who get their heating and hot water from a communal district heating scheme. The Government have refused to offer them price protection, saying instead that this should be regulated by the business regulation scheme, but that ended on 31 March, leaving those people with no protection at all...

Israel and Gaza (20 Mai 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: There is now a perception that the level of evidence the United Kingdom Government require to make a determination on whether war crimes have taken place and to act on them seems to vary with their attitude towards the country alleged to have committed those war crimes. Does the Deputy Foreign Secretary not understand the irreparable damage being done to the reputation of the United Kingdom...

Palestinians: Visa Scheme — [Martin Vickers in the Chair] (13 Mai 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: I thank my hon. Friend for making that point. Like others, I have been trying to get people out of Gaza and here to a place of safety with their relatives in the UK. Like others, I have been advised by the Home Office that schemes are available that people should apply to. Like others, I have found that the barriers to those schemes, the level of evidence required and the costs involved mean...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Middle East: Conflict Prevention ( 7 Mai 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: To ask the Deputy Foreign Secretary, what recent discussions he has had with Cabinet colleagues on the UK's strategic, long-term approach to supporting security in the Middle East.

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: United Nations ( 2 Mai 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: To ask the Deputy Foreign Secretary, what assessment he has made of the potential implications for his policies of The Technical Report for the United Nations Secretary-General, published on 22 April 2024.

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: West Bank: Violence ( 2 Mai 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: To ask the Deputy Foreign Secretary, what recent assessment he has made of the implications for his policies of the level of settler violence in the West Bank.

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Gaza: Humanitarian Aid ( 2 Mai 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: To ask the Deputy Foreign Secretary, what diplomatic steps his Department is taking to help increase access to medical care for children in Gaza.

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Israel: Arms Trade ( 2 Mai 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: To ask the Deputy Foreign Secretary, what recent discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Business and Trade on the (a) Strategic Export Licensing Criteria and (b) licences issued to Israel.

Scotland: Spring Budget 2024 ( 1 Mai 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: I, too, on behalf of the SNP group, put on record our sincere thanks to Humza Yousaf for his public service over the months and years. I wish him, Nadia and the rest of his family all the best in their future. Let me also observe that fewer people in Scotland will see our proceedings today as Scottish Television is currently blacked out because of a strike by TV journalists. I implore the...

Scotland: Spring Budget 2024 ( 1 Mai 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: That sounds like no assessment at all has been made. The truth is that, according to the Institute for Fiscal Studies, these forward planning assumptions involve public service cuts of up to £20 billion. That can only imply savage cuts to the Scottish block grant in the next two to three years. Sadly, these planning assumptions and the framework are endorsed by the Labour party. So if people...

Points of Order (30 Ebr 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. In almost nine years in this House I have never before raised a point of order, but I am obliged to do so now because of my exasperation with the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office. On 6 February, I wrote to Lord Cameron, the Foreign Secretary, asking for information about the UK’s decision to withdraw funding from the United Nations Relief...

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Middle East: UN Security Council (30 Ebr 2024)

Tommy Sheppard: The creation of a sustainable peace in the middle east will require the establishment of a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders. The Deputy Foreign Secretary will know that Prime Minister Netanyahu is now implacably opposed to the creation of such a state, so what will the UK do to oblige Israel to comply with the international peace process? Does he think a sustainable peace is possible...
