Infected Blood Inquiry (22 Meh 2023)

Pete Wishart: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. It is with great sadness that I inform the House of the passing of Winnie Ewing. Winnie served in this House after a spectacular by-election win in 1967. She served Hamilton between 1967 and 1970 and was re-elected in 1975 to serve the constituency of Moray and Nairn until 1979. She went on to serve in the European Parliament, where she became...

Infected Blood Inquiry (22 Meh 2023)

Pete Wishart: We usually say on Backbench Business Thursdays, “It is a pleasure to speak in this debate”, but I do not find it a great pleasure to speak in yet another one on contaminated blood. In my 22 years in this House, no issue has so frustrated or consumed the time of my office, in the hours put forward to support and represent constituents and in our efforts to ensure that they get justice. It...

Privilege: Conduct of Right Hon. Boris Johnson (19 Meh 2023)

Pete Wishart: Boris Johnson is a liar. It would have been unthinkable to say that in this House only a few short months ago: Boris Johnson is a liar. There is something still fundamentally and profoundly shocking about saying that in this hallowed setting of the House of Commons—this institution that we revere so much. But there is no other way to put it: Boris Johnson lied to this House. We were saying...

Privilege: Conduct of Right Hon. Boris Johnson (19 Meh 2023)

Pete Wishart: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Privilege: Conduct of Right Hon. Boris Johnson (19 Meh 2023)

Pete Wishart: My hon. Friend is making a fantastic speech, as always. They knew exactly the character of that man. They cheered on his buffoonery. It was them that foisted him upon our nation, and it is going to be them who will have to be held responsible and accountable for all the Johnson mess that he has left behind. We have four by-elections coming up in the next few weeks—three of them because of...

Privilege: Conduct of Right Hon. Boris Johnson (19 Meh 2023)

Pete Wishart: I am still confused about Labour’s position on the former Prime Minister’s honours list, because I have never heard anyone on the Labour Front Bench say they would abandon the practice. Surely, after all this, they cannot agree to a Prime Minister’s honours list. Will the hon. Lady now take this opportunity to clarify Labour’s position?

Public Broadcasting in Scotland — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (15 Meh 2023)

Pete Wishart: Thank you to everybody who has taken part in the debate. I was right to predict that it would be a convivial and consensual affair. I am grateful to the shadow Minister and the Minister for their contributions, and particularly to the shadow Minister, the hon. Member for Barnsley East (Stephanie Peacock), for reiterating a number of our recommendations and conclusions. I am pretty certain...

Public Broadcasting in Scotland — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (15 Meh 2023)

Pete Wishart: The Minister is right that we mentioned the events as an example of something that could be done, without any real expectation that that would be delivered, because we understand the complexities and exclusivity of the listed events schedule. The point we are making is that it is a matter of scale. Scotland has 5.2 million people, whereas England has 55 million to 60 million, so the rights...

Public Broadcasting in Scotland — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (15 Meh 2023)

Pete Wishart: I beg to move, That this House has considered the Fifth Report of the Scottish Affairs Committee, Public broadcasting in Scotland, HC 1048, and the Government response, HC 1305. I thank the Liaison Committee for enabling this short debate, and I welcome you to the Chair, Mr Efford; in these situations, young bucks like us are great examples to the younger Members in this House. I also welcome...

Public Broadcasting in Scotland — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (15 Meh 2023)

Pete Wishart: Absolutely, and I look forward to his closing remarks in this debate. The Scottish Affairs Committee held evidence sessions for this inquiry between July 2021 and January 2023. In that period, we examined the performance of public sector broadcasters in Scotland, and the general environment for broadcasting in Scotland. The Committee’s report was published on 2 March 2023. We found that...

Public Broadcasting in Scotland — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (15 Meh 2023)

Pete Wishart: My hon. Friend is quite right to point to those innovations, which we welcomed in the inquiry and report. The developments she mentions are significant. I remember the situation when I was a new Member of Parliament: London-based producers and commissioners did most of the commissioning when it came to Scotland. Now, there are opportunities for people in Scotland to ensure that commissions...

Public Broadcasting in Scotland — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (15 Meh 2023)

Pete Wishart: I was loth to use the word “blackmail”, although it is pretty hard to get away from that term, given that this is a gun to the head for so many public sector broadcasters. My hon. Friend is absolutely right about the sense of not being left behind. Because of Amazon’s importance, its worldwide reach and ability to get into households in Scotland, broadcasters have to take it seriously....

Public Broadcasting in Scotland — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (15 Meh 2023)

Pete Wishart: My hon. Friend makes a very good point. We have discovered that public sector broadcasting in Scotland is in a reasonably good place, but it remains fragile. Recovery and being able to provide the content that Scottish viewers want is important, so we have to be careful with all this. I know that the Minister is listening carefully, and I am sure that we will hear from him about this issue...

Public Broadcasting in Scotland — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (15 Meh 2023)

Pete Wishart: Indeed. Unfortunately, we were not able to press the main streaming services on this issue when they came to give evidence, because it had not emerged as a particular difficulty at that point. As my hon. Friend rightly points out, witnesses did say that there is a good relationship between the streaming services and the public service broadcasters. We heard in the Committee that there is room...

Public Broadcasting in Scotland — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (15 Meh 2023)

Pete Wishart: Absolutely—my hon. Friend is spot on. Scotland is a football-crazy nation, and it has been substantially proven that we have some of the highest numbers per capita going to football games. There is huge interest in our national football team, particularly now that we have such an exciting product to see, and it is good to be able to watch your heroes play. We have made huge strides in the...

Public Broadcasting in Scotland — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (15 Meh 2023)

Pete Wishart: As my hon. Friend the Member for Central Ayrshire (Dr Whitford) says, we have BBC Alba. Could something be done to see whether a similar arrangement could be made? There are a number of ways to explore this issue, but the current situation cannot go on. The last indignity is that when we all sit down to watch the football at 5 o’clock on Saturday evening—I know that all my colleagues...

Culture, Media and Sport: Artificial Intelligence: Creative Industries (15 Meh 2023)

Pete Wishart: What discussions she has had with representatives of the creative industries on the impact of artificial intelligence on that sector.

Culture, Media and Sport: Artificial Intelligence: Creative Industries (15 Meh 2023)

Pete Wishart: All these engagements are always important and valuable, and I thank the Secretary of State for that. She will know that the creative sector is always at the forefront of technical innovation, but it has always somehow managed to lose out, and the potential for this happening with AI is profound. AI firms are already saying that they do not need permission or licences from rights holders to...

Scotland: Promoting Scotland Overseas (17 Mai 2023)

Pete Wishart: The Secretary of State will know that the Scottish Affairs Committee is currently conducting an inquiry into how Scotland is promoted internationally, and all we have heard is just how well the UK and the Scottish Government work together, and about the added value that the Scottish Government mission brings to that promotion. Why is he determined to pick a fight unnecessarily and get in the...
