Scotland: UK Departure from EU (13 Med 2023)

Alister Jack: Yes. On Horizon, we were patient and did the right deal. It showed the future for British scientists, as well as how important British scientists were to Horizon and how much the EU wanted them to be part of it. My right hon. and learned Friend is right: we have a better relationship, and one that does not cost £22 billion a year.

Scotland: Devolution of Drugs Policy (13 Med 2023)

Alister Jack: Illicit drugs destroy lives and devastate communities. The United Kingdom Government’s 10-year drug strategy sets out ambitious plans, backed by a record £3 billion over three years, to tackle the supply of illicit drugs and build a world-class system of treatment and recovery. This is a UK-wide strategy, and there are no plans to devolve drugs policy to the Scottish Government.

Scotland: Devolution of Drugs Policy (13 Med 2023)

Alister Jack: It was disappointing that the Scottish Government were not prepared to work with the UK Government on Project ADDER. That offer was made with supporting funding. The E in ADDER is for “enforcement”. I believe the police and the Procurator Fiscal Service should be enforcing the laws in Scotland, not decriminalising drugs, because enforcement helps to drive people to health solutions.

Scotland: Devolution of Drugs Policy (13 Med 2023)

Alister Jack: Drug consumption rooms are not the easy solution hon. Members may think they are. There is no safe way to take illegal drugs. Drugs devastate lives, ruin families and damage communities. The UK Government believe that the police and the Procurator Fiscal Service should fully enforce the law. However, I say to the hon. Lady that if the Scottish Government and the Lord Advocate decide to...

Scotland: Devolution of Drugs Policy (13 Med 2023)

Alister Jack: Labour Members always seem to cheer me at this moment in Scottish questions. They are very generous. My hon. Friend makes a very good point. Drug deaths in Scotland are three times higher than the UK average, despite the laws being the same across the UK. I do not believe drug consumption rooms are the panacea to those problems, but we absolutely must have drugs laws that work across the...

Scotland: Devolution of Drugs Policy (13 Med 2023)

Alister Jack: I think I have been clear. I have been clear that the UK Government’s policy is not to proceed with drug consumption rooms. We believe, as I have said, that drugs devastate families and destroy communities. I was very clear about those things, but I am also very clear that the Lord Advocate and the Scottish Government appear to have achieved a workaround that allows them to have a pilot...

Scotland: Devolution of Drugs Policy (13 Med 2023)

Alister Jack: I am very popular today. I will be with SNP Members in particular when I say that the answer is yes.

Scotland: Strength of the Union (13 Med 2023)

Alister Jack: I believe that support for the Union is strong. The United Kingdom is one of the most successful political and economic unions in the world, and the foundation on which all our businesses and citizens are able to thrive. When we work collaboratively, we are safer, stronger and more prosperous.

Scotland: Strength of the Union (13 Med 2023)

Alister Jack: I agree with my hon. Friend, and I could not have put it better myself.

Scotland: Strength of the Union (13 Med 2023)

Alister Jack: They always say independence will sort the problems. Scotland is not building hospitals on the islands because the Scottish Government are squandering the most generous settlement they have had since devolution began.

Written Answers — Scotland Office: Scotland Office: Written Questions (11 Med 2023)
