Scotland: Financial Settlement for Scotland ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alister Jack: My position has always been clear: I believe that the energy profits levy on the excess profits caused by Putin’s illegal war in Ukraine was the right thing for the Government to do, to give support to people in the cost of living crisis.

Scotland: Financial Settlement for Scotland ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alister Jack: That is an easy one to answer, Mr Speaker, as I am very proud of my legacy. Rather like winning four Calcutta cups, I have won in court with the Scottish Government four times, and there are any number of things I would like to list for my legacy. Importantly, the Scottish Government receive a record block of £41 billion, and record Barnett consequentials on top of that. Spending in Scotland...

Scotland: Financial Settlement for Scotland ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alister Jack: This is nonsense. Austerity is not a thing under this Government—not a thing at all. [Laughter.] No, absolutely not. Departmental spending—this is the point that the SNP does not acknowledge—throughout this Parliament has grown by 3.2% on average. That is the simple truth.

Scotland: International Relations ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alister Jack: I have had frequent and recent discussions with the Foreign Secretary on the Scottish Government’s international relations policy. Foreign affairs are reserved to the United Kingdom Government. We have been clear to the Scottish Government that they must respect that.

Scotland: International Relations ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alister Jack: I agree with the hon. Lady. It is important that the United Kingdom Government speak with one voice and the United Kingdom is seen to speak with one voice on foreign affairs. I note that Angus Robertson has produced another independence document this week on foreign affairs and defence, and there is a lot of nonsense in there. The Scottish Government want to join the NATO nuclear alliance,...

Scotland: Promoting Trade with Northern Ireland ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alister Jack: I am pleased to say that I have had discussions with the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland about maximising trade links, now that the Northern Ireland Executive have been restored. What is more, the UK Government have committed to establishing the East-West Council, which will identify opportunities for deepening connections between Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom,...

Implementing the Windsor framework and the Command Paper are the Government’s priorities, and we will provide an update in close time.

Scotland: Allegations of Impropriety in Public Life ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alister Jack: Our Union is strong. [Interruption.] Yes, it is. Scotland’s contribution to our United Kingdom is beyond doubt, and this Government’s commitment to Scotland is without question. From freeports and investment zones to the record block grant and £1.5 billion for the 12 city and region growth deals, we deliver for Scotland.

Scotland: Allegations of Impropriety in Public Life ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alister Jack: I agree with the hon. Lady.

Scotland: Allegations of Impropriety in Public Life ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alister Jack: My right hon. Friend should write to the Cabinet Secretary and ask him to do that very thing.

Scotland: Food Exports ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alister Jack: Scotland Office Ministers have banged the drum tirelessly to promote the Scottish food and drink industry overseas, including on trade missions in Europe, India, the United States of America and Vietnam. In Vietnam, sales of Scotch whisky have increased fourfold and are still growing. I was delighted to discuss what more can be done to improve trade links and market access with the Vietnamese...

Scotland: Food Exports ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alister Jack: I think I heard “smoked salmon”, but this is not just about smoked salmon. The most recent figures show that Scotland’s world-leading food and drink sector accounted for 29% of all UK food and drink exports. To help the sector to continue to flourish, the Government have secured trade agreements with 71 non-EU countries and the EU. Total UK trade with those partners is worth £808 billion.

Scotland: Food Exports ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alister Jack: In the UK Command Paper, we said that we are setting up the East-West Council, which will work to bring about the solutions.

Scotland: Departure from the EU: Impact on Scotland ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alister Jack: The UK Government are working tirelessly to maximise opportunities following our departure from the European Union. Scotland continues to punch above its weight, both in exports of goods and services and in foreign direct investment, and I am delighted to be able to say that trade is now well above pre-Brexit levels.

Scotland: Departure from the EU: Impact on Scotland ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alister Jack: As the right hon. Gentleman will appreciate, our departure from the EU has allowed us to forge new relationships. Consequently, Scotland’s exports are performing well—they are up by 13%.

Scotland: Departure from the EU: Impact on Scotland ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alister Jack: My hon. Friend is a great champion of the fishing industry, and I completely agree with him.
