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

Pete Wishart: I hear the Scottish highlands are even more beautiful, but we might debate that one at some other point. This Bill will drive a coach and horses through the devolution settlement. Combined with the United Kingdom Internal Market Act 2020, we are beginning to reach a crescendo in the assault on Scottish democracy and our parliamentary democracy. The joint pincer movement of the internal market...

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

Pete Wishart: I do not know if the hon. Gentleman is not paying attention, but has he not noticed, and does he not recognise, that there is going to be a referendum in November next year? I know that Alba represents about 0.7% of all voters across Scotland, but at least they could start to pay attention.

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

Pete Wishart: We now know that Labour is a party of Brexit, no different from the other major party of Brexit, but how on earth do we make something that is unworkable work in the way that the hon. Member describes? Brexit is not a political strategy; it is an ideological venture and mission. He may have given up on getting back into the European Union, but we on the Scottish National party Benches...

Economic Update (17 Hyd 2022)

Pete Wishart: Will the Chancellor take this opportunity to concede that he is now the de facto Prime Minister and that it is he who calls the shots in government, in what must be the most bizarre and surreal coup in political history? In this new role, does he think the current Prime Minister is a help or a hindrance to his economic objectives?

Backbench Business: Post-Brexit Fisheries Management — [David Mundell in the Chair] (13 Hyd 2022)

Pete Wishart: I expected that when the Minister got to his feet, we would hear about all the benefits of Brexit—given that this is what the debate is about—and about how he was working to ensure that we are able to assert ourself as an independent coastal community. The all-party parliamentary group on fisheries has gone to the trouble of asking people in the industry about their Brexit experience. One...

Backbench Business: Post-Brexit Fisheries Management — [David Mundell in the Chair] (13 Hyd 2022)

Pete Wishart: Thank you, Mr Mundell. I congratulate the hon. Member for Banff and Buchan (David Duguid) on his reappointment to the Scotland Office—I know for certain he would have liked to be here to contribute to proceedings. Mr Mundell, there is always something comforting when you are looking down at us from above as we are debating issues such as this. I congratulate the right hon. Member for...

Backbench Business: Post-Brexit Fisheries Management — [David Mundell in the Chair] (13 Hyd 2022)

Pete Wishart: I am really grateful to the right hon. Gentleman, because I want to come on to those points and to address some of the issues he raised. He is right: there is nobody to blame any more. For years and years, it was all the fault of Brussels, the EU and the CFP; now the Minister is exclusively in charge of the details of UK fisheries. But it is the right hon. Gentleman’s debate—I did not...

Backbench Business: Post-Brexit Fisheries Management — [David Mundell in the Chair] (13 Hyd 2022)

Pete Wishart: I am grateful to the Minister for raising that point. I was going to reserve that for later in my speech, but I will address it now because it is important. The right hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland addressed it and he deserves and requires an answer to that, which I am more than happy to give him. It was not a press release; I think it was a written question by his colleague in the...

Backbench Business: Post-Brexit Fisheries Management — [David Mundell in the Chair] (13 Hyd 2022)

Pete Wishart: Again, I am grateful to the right hon. Gentleman for mentioning that. He is absolutely spot on. I have the great pleasure and privilege of chairing the Scottish Affairs Committee and one of our first inquiries in this Session of Parliament was on labour shortages. I think food processing was identified as one of the first sectors that started to experience real difficulties. It needs to be...

Scotland: Levelling-up Fund (12 Hyd 2022)

Pete Wishart: What would the impact have been on levelling-up projects if the Scottish Government had followed the advice of the Scottish Conservatives to give these unfunded and catastrophic tax cuts to the wealthiest in our society? Will the Secretary of State now apologise to the Scottish Government for insisting that they follow this disastrous and reckless course of action?

Treasury: Levelling-up Agenda (11 Hyd 2022)

Pete Wishart: “Never has so much chaos been inflicted on so many by so few” will be the motto that will reverberate down the eons from this Government. Do they actually still believe in this fairy tale of levelling up? Is it not now just a matter of how far they are going to level us all down?

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Driving Tests: Waiting Lists (13 Med 2022)

Pete Wishart: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, in the context of the driving test backlog, if he will take steps to increase the number of driving test slots available, particularly in rural areas.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Driving Tests: Waiting Lists (13 Med 2022)

Pete Wishart: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether he is taking steps to clear the driving test backlog and reduce test waiting times, particularly in rural areas.

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Cost Increases: Food Producers and Consumers ( 8 Med 2022)

Pete Wishart: Thank you ever so much, Mr Speaker. It feels like business questions. I thought I was getting away from the right hon. Gentleman, but there is seemingly no escape. May I welcome him to his new role and congratulate the new Secretary of State? I know they have a huge inbox—they do not have to seek problems. As we have heard, there are rocketing prices for the rural economy and astronomical...

Business of the House (21 Gor 2022)

Pete Wishart: Can we have a debate about rats in a sack? There is a confrontation going on just now that makes those much maligned rodents seem like sedated gerbils on tranquilisers. This is ferocious, unrestrained stuff, with no mercy shown—they are going for the kill. Accusations, poisoned barbs, simmering resentment—and that is just what they are saying about each other in their own camps. Mr...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Audio-visual Industry: Copyright (20 Gor 2022)

Pete Wishart: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what assessment his Department has made of the financial impact on the UK audio-visual sector of his decision to expand the text and data mining exception.

Contaminated Blood Scandal: Interim Payments for Victims (19 Gor 2022)

Pete Wishart: There is no good reason why interim payments cannot be made. When we first raised issues of contaminated blood some 20 years ago, we were repeatedly told that no wrongful practices were employed. Andy Burnham conceded at the inquiry that he and his ministerial team were given lines by officials that he now knows to be false, and that that has had an impact on real lives. What is being done to...

Scottish Affairs Committee (14 Gor 2022)

Pete Wishart: Thank you, Ms Rees. I also thank the Backbench Business Committee for allowing me to make a statement on our report, “Access to cash in Scotland”, which we published on Monday. It is great to see so many colleagues from Scottish constituencies here today. [Interruption.] And of course from Northern Ireland—I cannot possibly forget the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon). I look...

Scottish Affairs Committee (14 Gor 2022)

Pete Wishart: I am grateful to the right hon. Gentleman and I am pleased that he showed sufficient deference when questioning a member of the establishment. I am always glad to accept questions from him in any setting, so it is good that he is here. On the right hon. Gentleman’s specific questions, he obviously did not hear me point out in my contribution that we looked at deposit-accepting ATMs. We see...

Scottish Affairs Committee (14 Gor 2022)

Pete Wishart: We put those questions to the Minister when he appeared before the Committee. He made it clear, very legitimately, that the Government cannot get involved in commercial decisions on closures of branch operations, but that does not mean that they cannot do anything. The Access to Cash Action Group recommended several things that the Government could do so that banks were able to proceed,...
