Scotland: Highly Protected Marine Areas (17 Mai 2023)

Alister Jack: We will share the results of those pilot schemes. I reiterate what the Prime Minister said at Prime Minister’s questions last week to the hon. Member for Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross (Jamie Stone), which is that the Scottish Government should U-turn on this issue and respect the fact that fishing communities know what is best to preserve stocks and know what is best for future...

Scotland: Highly Protected Marine Areas (17 Mai 2023)

Alister Jack: For those who heard the question, the answer is yes.

Written Answers — Scotland Office: Scotland Act 2016 (11 Mai 2023)

Alister Jack: Officials in my Department have been working closely with their colleagues across the UK Government and Scottish Government to prepare the Seventh Annual Report on the Implementation of the Scotland Act 2016. I expect this report to be published by the end of May. I will write to you with a copy of the report when it is published.

Written Answers — Scotland Office: Churches: Scotland (11 Mai 2023)

Alister Jack: This is an area of devolved competence and therefore not for the UK Government to comment on. Historic Environment Scotland is a Scottish Government non-departmental public body with a charitable status, governed by a Board of Trustees appointed by Scottish Ministers.

Written Answers — Scotland Office: Sortition Foundation: Scotland ( 4 Mai 2023)

Alister Jack: The Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body is responsible for decisions on the parliamentary budget. The Body is chaired by the Presiding Officer and includes four elected Members of the Scottish Parliament. Its expenditure is authorised through the Scottish Government Budget Bill and is paid from the Scottish Consolidated Fund. The Auditor General for Scotland, the Accounts Commission, and...

Written Answers — Scotland Office: Lord Advocate and Scotland Act 1998 (25 Ebr 2023)

Alister Jack: I have not had any discussions with the Scottish Government regarding the role of Lord Advocate and changes to the Scotland Act 1998 in the period since May 2022.

Written Answers — Scotland Office: Scotland Office: Public Consultation ( 3 Ebr 2023)

Alister Jack: I can confirm that there are currently no active or live consultations being led by my Department. Consequently, my department is not awaiting or expecting any consultation responses.

Written Answers — Scotland Office: Scotland Office: Billing (29 Maw 2023)

Alister Jack: The Scotland Office does not make assessments of the proportion of invoices paid to small and medium-sized enterprises. However, in line with government commitments, we aim to pay 90% of all undisputed and valid invoices from small and medium-sized enterprises within 5 days.

Written Answers — Scotland Office: Armed Forces: Scotland (29 Maw 2023)

Alister Jack: Our armed forces in Scotland play a vital role in defending the whole of the UK. Most recently, I was delighted to see £83m of UK Government investment awarded to RAF Lossiemouth to build a new facility ready for the UK E-7 Wedgetail fleet. This award - and the creation of 125 jobs - is another great example of how UK defence investment is supporting our armed forces in Scotland.

Scotland: Devolution Settlement (29 Maw 2023)

Alister Jack: I take this opportunity to congratulate Humza Yousaf on becoming Scotland’s new First Minister. I look forward to working with him. I heard him say that he wanted to put the independence drive into “fifth gear”; I would gently remind him that most Scots actually want him to put it into reverse and to work with the United Kingdom to tackle the issues that really matter to them, such as...

Scotland: Devolution Settlement (29 Maw 2023)

Alister Jack: This is an important point and has had a lot of airtime in the media in Scotland. I can say to the hon. Lady that, while officials and civil servants spoke to one another over a period of time, the official request to Ministers came in the inter-ministerial group meeting, which the Under-Secretary of State for Scotland, my hon. Friend the Member for Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk (John...

Scotland: Devolution Settlement (29 Maw 2023)

Alister Jack: Let us be absolutely clear about this: the letter the hon. Gentleman refers to was a letter to the Chancellor about value added tax treatment of the deposit return scheme. The letter mentioned that an exemption request would be coming forward, but the official request was made on 6 March—there is no question about that—and the detailed arguments were laid out on 6 March at the...

Scotland: Devolution Settlement (29 Maw 2023)

Alister Jack: I am not sure that there has been much joined-up thinking on the questions here. Again, I have suggested that the deposit return scheme should be paused. I think a UK-wide solution is right; I think recycling is absolutely right. But I agree with the chief executive of Tesco, Britain’s largest retailer, when he says that this is not the right scheme—it will be inflationary. As I have said...

Scotland: Devolution Settlement (29 Maw 2023)

Alister Jack: Not only did Humza Yousaf fail in the transport brief but, as we know from his opponent, who took almost half the vote—48%—he also failed in his other briefs of justice and health.

Scotland: Devolution Settlement (29 Maw 2023)

Alister Jack: At the moment, we are in discussions with the Scottish Government about a review of the fiscal framework. That review has been in train for some time, and the conclusions will be coming shortly.

Scotland: Devolution Settlement (29 Maw 2023)

Alister Jack: Yes. I have heard the new First Minister say that it was anti-devolution to block a Bill that had been passed by the Scottish Parliament, but section 35 exists for that very reason. When a Bill is passed by the Scottish Parliament—if it did not pass it, we could not block it—that has adverse effects on GB-wide legislation, section 35 exists to stop the Bill going for Royal Assent so that...

Scotland: Devolution Settlement (29 Maw 2023)

Alister Jack: There is a precedent for political parties voting in new leaders who then assume office: Henry McLeish replaced Donald Dewar, Jack McConnell replaced Henry McLeish, Gordon Brown replaced Tony Blair, and even Nicola Sturgeon replaced her at-the-time great friend and mentor—her words, not mine—Alex Salmond. It would be hypocritical of me to say otherwise, because last year, of course, I...

Scotland: Devolution Settlement (29 Maw 2023)

Alister Jack: This is a very serious issue and my sympathies are with David and his family. I know that he has written to the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care. I am a great believer in our NHS being reciprocal across the United Kingdom and will organisation a meeting for the hon. Gentleman with the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care at the earliest opportunity.

Scotland: Devolution Settlement (29 Maw 2023)

Alister Jack: Let me pick up the hon. Lady’s first point, because we do not want the grievance factory to say, as I have seen on social media today, that the English Government blocked people in Scotland watching the game against Spain last night in which we were so victorious—[Interruption.] I said “on social media”. The Scottish Football Association sold the rights to the football match. It was...

Scotland: Devolution Settlement (29 Maw 2023)

Alister Jack: I quoted earlier the chief executive of Tesco, the largest retailer in the United Kingdom. In the paper yesterday he made the very good point that there is one drinks industry across the United Kingdom and we should have one solution to the recycling problem.
