Groceries Code Adjudicator ( 5 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I am pondering the words the Minister has used. I think he is right that the adjudicator does have the powers to investigate and enforce the code of practice, but there are still big areas that are not covered, and that comes to the concern that farmers, producers and processors have.

Groceries Code Adjudicator ( 5 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: Having seen the House run through business at such a blistering pace, we can now all settle back and enjoy the next four hours and six minutes as we consider the matter of the Groceries Code Adjudicator. I assure the House that it is some years since I made my living by speaking for six-minute units in the legal profession, so we may manage to knock off the odd six minutes here or there. I...

Groceries Code Adjudicator ( 5 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I do. I felt that a debate focused on the Groceries Code Adjudicator was timely and essential because the relationship between the producer and the retailer is critical. Unless we get that relationship right, there will be no future; many generations, one after the other, have made the decision to go into agriculture, but it will simply not be worth it. As many of our environmental...

Farming ( 4 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for The Cotswolds (Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown). Like him, I refer the House to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests; I am an owner of farmland and a partner in the firm that manages it. Agriculture is enormously important to Scotland as a whole, but particularly to rural Scotland and island Scotland. NFU Scotland reminds us...

Farming ( 4 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: rose—

Farming ( 4 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: If only. I should remind the House that my wife is a practising member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, and my younger son is three rent cheques away from following in her footsteps. The hon. Gentleman makes a good and significant point about the nature of the regulation of abattoirs, but there are other forces at play here, particularly market forces. The reason we have seen the...

Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration ( 4 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: These reports are, cumulatively, a remarkable catalogue of past failings, but may I invite the Minister to look ahead? He has referred to the Rwanda scheme; does he agree that the incoming independent inspector must be allowed to examine the workings of that scheme, and that it should not be implemented unless and until the next inspector has given it a satisfactory bill of health?

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Refugees: Ukraine ( 1 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, what assessment his Department has made of the potential merits of providing more integration support for Ukrainian refugees.

Written Answers — Home Office: Visas: Ukraine ( 1 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what discussions his Department had with Ukrainian refugees ahead of the decision to extend visas by 18 months.

Post Office Board and Governance (28 Chw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: Surely what we saw yesterday was a glimpse of senior management in the Post Office who are now completely dysfunctional. As such, it is difficult to see how anyone can have confidence in their administration of the various compensation schemes. Would it not be a sensible first step to restore confidence in that most important national institution—the Post Office—to take all role for them...

Israel and Gaza (27 Chw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: Have the Government of Israel yet shared with His Majesty’s Government their purported evidence of United Nations Relief and Works Agency complicity in the attacks of 7 October, and if so, when did they do it?

Written Answers — Home Office: Members: Correspondence (23 Chw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many and what proportion of responses to correspondence from hon. Members were provided in the name of (a) officials and (b) Ministers in his Department in the latest period for which data is available.

Backbench Business: Coastal Tourism and Hospitality: Fiscal Support — [Judith Cummins in the Chair] (22 Chw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: It is a pleasure to serve with you in the Chair, Ms Cummins. I congratulate the hon. Member for North Devon (Selaine Saxby) on securing this debate. By accident or design, Members have spoken about a range of communities although there have been a number of common threads. I first remind the House of my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests: I am a partner in the firm that...

Post Office Horizon Scandal (22 Chw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: The problem for many sub-postmasters and sub-postmistresses is the quantification of what they are due to be repaid under the shortfall scheme, because payments were made out of their own pocket on several occasions over a long period. It is difficult in those circumstances for the claimants to know that they have been properly compensated, because the Post Office cannot tell them how much it...

Immigration Rules and Border Security (20 Chw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: So, when does the Minister expect the next independent chief inspector of borders and immigration to take up the post?

Investigatory Powers (Amendment) Bill [Lords] (19 Chw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: The Home Secretary will be as aware as I am that very occasionally those in charge of our intelligence and security services do not act in the best traditions of this country in their offices, and I am thinking of cases such as Belhaj and Boudchar. Where people have been the victim of mistreatment—as a consequence of UK complicity with foreign powers, for example—should there not be a...

Death of Alexei Navalny (19 Chw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: The House and the whole country are easily and instinctively united in condemnation of this latest evidence of Vladimir Putin’s brutality, but is the Minister not a little uncomfortable that he makes his statement on the same day that his colleagues in the Home Office have announced restrictions on visa access for those from Ukraine fleeing the war against Russia? Does he not understand...

Post Office Governance and Horizon Compensation Schemes (19 Chw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: Having supported constituents in negotiations in relation to the historical shortfall scheme, I can tell the Secretary of State that, whatever the reason for it, the conduct of the Post Office and its agents was characterised by delay and obstruction. That, in turn, led to the view taking hold among sub-postmasters that there was no point in making claims. Since the ITV drama aired, I have...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Workplace Pensions: Regulation (19 Chw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, with reference to the oral contribution of The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Work and Pensions during the debate on Defined-Benefit Pension Schemes of 17 January 2024 Official Report, column 329WH, whether the Minister has had discussions with the Pensions Regulator.
