Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy ( 2 Tach 2022)

Pete Wishart: I think we have heard from the Liberals. I will come back to the hon. Lady, because I have other assertions to make. I think we have now all agreed, other than the Liberal Democrats, to that one, so let us try another. I am going to speak about all our resources. Let us include a good proportion of nearly all of Europe’s oil and gas reserves; the greatest potential for renewable energy that...

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy ( 2 Tach 2022)

Pete Wishart: Let us see whether the hon. Lady will agree that Scotland has what it takes to be an independent country.

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy ( 2 Tach 2022)

Pete Wishart: That is a little more encouraging, because I think we are moving towards the assertion that Scotland would be a successful country and it has more than what it takes to be one. Throwing this theme a wee bit further on, we could even suggest that Scotland is perhaps the best resourced country that has ever considered becoming independent. I think that is pretty incontrovertible. No country is...

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy ( 2 Tach 2022)

Pete Wishart: Are we good for the hon. Gentleman to agree on that?

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy ( 2 Tach 2022)

Pete Wishart: I am so grateful to the hon. Gentleman for raising the EU because of what I am going to say now. I suspect I will not get the same range of agreement around the House with this particular assertion: the only way for Scotland to be a member of the European Union is for it to become an independent nation. Do we all agree with that? [Interruption.] I am hearing a couple of noes, mainly again...

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy ( 2 Tach 2022)

Pete Wishart: I will say a couple of things gently to the hon. Gentleman, who, for all his noise and bluster in the Chamber, I actually respect. Look—this debate is about Scottish independence; I do not know whether the hon. Gentleman missed that.

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy ( 2 Tach 2022)

Pete Wishart: I will come to the hon. Gentleman’s other points, which are important, but I am keen to say this: I wanted to find agreement across the House. I thought I was making a bit of progress, but it is disappearing a little. I will try once again, to see whether I can do it. All I want is for everybody to agree that the only way for Scotland to be a member of the European Union is by becoming...

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy ( 2 Tach 2022)

Pete Wishart: No; I have given way to the hon. Lady before. Let us all agree that the only way for Scotland to rejoin the EU is by becoming independent. I will try another one; this one is probably not going to get there, but let us see. The only way for Scotland to get the Governments that it always votes for is as an independent nation.

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy ( 2 Tach 2022)

Pete Wishart: The hon. Gentleman says that that does not make sense, but when I was elected in 2001 Scotland voted for Labour; it got the Government that it wanted. But since 2010, Scotland has never had the Government it voted for. What I am saying is uncontroversial: the only way for Scotland always to get the Government it votes for is as an independent nation. I thought we might have a little...

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy ( 2 Tach 2022)

Pete Wishart: I am grateful to my hon. Friend, who takes these issues seriously. I have been a bit encouraged. Here is one that I am pretty certain Members from other parties will definitely agree to. I think we have to be honest about certain things and acknowledge that there will also, obviously, be difficulties. However, I think independence will be positive for Scotland; like our near-neighbours, we...

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy ( 2 Tach 2022)

Pete Wishart: I will put it the other way round; it might be easier for the hon. Gentleman to comprehend. We have this notional deficit as part of the United Kingdom. We all agree that these other nations are powering ahead of us. According to the hon. Member for Edinburgh South (Ian Murray), we have a deficit that apparently means that we cannot be independent, but we have the deficit because we are part...

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy ( 2 Tach 2022)

Pete Wishart: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy ( 2 Tach 2022)

Pete Wishart: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy ( 2 Tach 2022)

Pete Wishart: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy ( 2 Tach 2022)

Pete Wishart: I am genuinely grateful to the hon. Gentleman, but he need not worry about my knees. He is coming very close to saying that somehow the Scottish people, with all our resources and our history of invention and creativity, are unique in the world in that we would not be able to make a success of independence. What does he think is so lacking in the Scottish people that we, among all the peoples...

Avian Influenza ( 1 Tach 2022)

Pete Wishart: I thank the Minister for his helpful update and for giving me early sight of his statement. This outbreak is serious and potentially ruinous for those who depend on the poultry trade, or whose livelihood depends on the keeping of birds. All summer in Scotland, we have seen the impact of this episode of bird flu on our iconic bird colonies in places such as East Lothian, Galloway and St Kilda,...

National Food Strategy and Food Security (27 Hyd 2022)

Pete Wishart: I congratulate the right hon. Member for Tatton (Esther McVey) and the hon. Member for Bristol East (Kerry McCarthy) on raising this important issue. This has been a largely consensual debate. I will try not to spoil that tone, perhaps unsurprisingly, Madam Deputy Speaker —not by much, anyway. It is almost unbelievable that here we are in 2022 discussing food security, but such is the...

National Food Strategy and Food Security (27 Hyd 2022)

Pete Wishart: Like the hon. Lady, I hope free school meals are realised across the rest of the United Kingdom. Will she congratulate the Scottish Government on introducing free school meals for all primary school pupils between primary 1 and 5, with a view to expanding it to primary 6 and 7? Every child in Scotland living in a household in receipt of universal credit gets a free school meal. Does she...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (25 Hyd 2022)

Pete Wishart: It is like the old days, is it not? I was going to say the good old days, but they were not all that good. Remember the endless blue-on-blue, Tory-on-Tory Brexit wrangling with nobody being able to make up their minds about the way forward. We have had a little of that, and I thought it was going to get quite serious when the right hon. Member for North East Somerset (Mr Rees-Mogg) seemed to...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (25 Hyd 2022)

Pete Wishart: I heard, Mr Deputy Speaker, from a sedentary position, “Too long!” I am trying to resolve that—help me out. I want to be part of an independent nation. The hon. Gentleman and his friends could help in that ambition.
