Smaller Musical Genres: Scotland (31 Ion 2023)

Pete Wishart: I beg to move, That this House has considered Government support for smaller musical genres in Scotland. I look forward to serving under you in the Chair, Sir Mark, in this afternoon’s short but hopefully important debate. I refer to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. When I was thinking about how to open this debate, I thought I would start with something profound...

Smaller Musical Genres: Scotland (31 Ion 2023)

Pete Wishart: Absolutely; my hon. Friend is quite right to mention Celtic Connections, because they do not come any better than that. I remember when it all kicked off, back in 1993. It was a few concerts in the concert hall in Glasgow. It is now at practically every venue in central Glasgow, and I think it goes on for 10 days. Of course, like my hon. Friend, I will have the great pleasure of attending a...

Smaller Musical Genres: Scotland (31 Ion 2023)

Pete Wishart: My hon. Friend is absolutely correct in her assessment and description of the wonderful work that goes on in the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. It has fantastic staff. I have not had an opportunity to visit for a while, so I will put that on my list now; I will definitely go and see it. John Wallace, a distinguished former leader of the conservatoire, asked what the point of cutting all...

Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Section 35 Power (17 Ion 2023)

Pete Wishart: I know my hon. Friend has not had an opportunity to look at the statement of reasons, some 57 paragraphs of which have just been served up to us. I have had a chance to have a quick look at it, and maybe my hon. Friend should not bother doing so in any great degree detail because it is specious, hypothetical and poorly informed. One example is that, on equal pay, the Government seem to...

Points of Order (17 Ion 2023)

Pete Wishart: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. This has been an absolute and utter mess. The Secretary of State was not forced to come to the House to answer an urgent question. He came voluntarily. It has been central to the Government’s case that the Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill passed by the Scottish Parliament conflicts with the Equality Act 2010. There is a statement of...

Scotland Act 1998: Section 35 Power (17 Ion 2023)

Pete Wishart: This is the single biggest attack on Scottish devolution and Scottish democracy since the establishment of the Scottish Parliament in 1999. A move to strike down a piece of legislation that is supported by every single party in the Parliament is as provocative as it is anti-democratic. When the Scotland Act went through Parliament back in 1997 and ’98, the Conservatives called section 35...

Scotland Act 1998: Section 35 Power (17 Ion 2023)

Pete Wishart: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Scotland: International Trade Links (11 Ion 2023)

Pete Wishart: I do not know where all this tosh that we have heard comes from this morning, but the reality of trade arrangements in Scotland and the UK is that, because of Brexit, £15 billion less was spent in the last quarter of 2022 than would have been. What does the Minister have to say to businesses in Scotland suffering under this calamitous Brexit that they did not vote for, and when is he going...

House of Lords Reform — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Ion 2023)

Pete Wishart: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

House of Lords Reform — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Ion 2023)

Pete Wishart: I am grateful to the right hon. Gentleman, who is always courteous. I am an abolisher of the House of Lords, but the UK is a complex democracy and some sort of revising Chamber would be required to take care of all its specific demands. The right hon. Gentleman and, I think, the hon. Member for Blackley and Broughton (Graham Stringer) were here when Robin Cook proposed a series of reforms. I...

House of Lords Reform — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Ion 2023)

Pete Wishart: I am glad that my hon. Friend is making that strong and powerful point. We have some gall to lecture the developing world about good governance arrangements, when we are prepared to stuff a political institution full of people who are little more than donors, cronies and political place-people, in order to ensure their place in what I would not call our democracy, but our legislature, just...

House of Lords Reform — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Ion 2023)

Pete Wishart: This has always been a quandary for me: what does an independent Scotland do with existing peers who have Scottish titles or who are from a Scottish part of the world? It struck me that, just to show generosity and good spirit, perhaps we could donate all the Scottish lords to the rest of the United Kingdom as a parting gift? Does my hon. Friend think that is a good idea?

House of Lords Reform — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Ion 2023)

Pete Wishart: What a relief that is!

House of Lords Reform — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Ion 2023)

Pete Wishart: Would it not be a simple way for Labour to show commitment to true House of Lords reform if it just stopped making appointments to it? A better gesture might be to even remove a few of them now and again, including the ones who do not turn up. Maybe that is a suggestion that my hon. Friend could make to our friends on the Labour Benches.

Scotland’s Future (14 Rha 2022)

Pete Wishart: I rise from the unfamiliar terrain of the Back Benches for the first time in 21 years. I hope you will be gentle with me, Mr Deputy Speaker, as you always are, as I get used to this new environment. It is only three weeks since the Supreme Court made that important ruling on whether the Scottish Parliament had the necessary powers to bring in a Bill to have a referendum on an independent...
