Education: Adult Upskilling (27 Chw 2023)

Alyn Smith: All hon. Members agree that the skills agenda is vital for the future of the economy, but the loss of the European social fund has been devastating for skills providers. Surely the Minister agrees that the UK Exchequer should match the ESF money lost across all four home nations.

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: The Arctic (31 Ion 2023)

Alyn Smith: I am glad to hear that the report is forthcoming, and I hope it takes good note of the Scottish Government’s 2019 Arctic strategy. For the reasons we have heard from Members on both sides of the House—there is a lot of agreement on this—the Scottish Government recognise the significance of the High North and the Arctic to us; it is our backyard, and we are a willing partner to work with...

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: UK-EU Trade and Co-operation Agreement (31 Ion 2023)

Alyn Smith: Thank you, Mr Speaker—a well-timed riposte if ever I heard one. The difference between the UK leaving the European Union and Scotland leaving the UK and joining the EU is that we are clear about what we want and how to do it. Within the trade and co-operation agreement, UK in a Changing Europe did us all a favour by highlighting the various deadlines that exist for further clarity for...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: New Schedule 1 - “Assimilated law”: consequential amendments (18 Ion 2023)

Alyn Smith: I will be brief because we have had a long discussion today. The SNP opposes the Bill. We believe that Scotland’s best future is independence in Europe, but it is not about that tonight. I also, simultaneously—as a friend of the UK—do not want to see this place pass bad law, and we believe that this is bad law. It is possible to do a bad thing well, but I fear that the Bill will do a...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: New Clause 1 - “Assimilated law” (18 Ion 2023)

Alyn Smith: I agree with that point, but that is the reality of devolution, which is why we think devolution is not suitable for Scotland’s ambitions and wants. The Act in question was passed by Labour Members, SNP Members, Greens, Liberal Democrats and three Conservative Members, yet it has been called in by the Secretary of State for Scotland. We will fight that; we think it is a bad decision and we...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: New Clause 1 - “Assimilated law” (18 Ion 2023)

Alyn Smith: The hon. Gentleman makes an important point. The UK constitutional arrangements in London, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland were all predicated upon the maintenance of the single market, the customs union and the EU; that was the balance of devolved competences that was struck. All this was upended by Brexit and the actions of the UK Government since. So there is deep consequence for the...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: New Clause 1 - “Assimilated law” (18 Ion 2023)

Alyn Smith: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Stone (Sir William Cash). Bluntly, we do not agree on much, but I do not doubt his enthusiasm for the subject. If what he is on comes in powder form, I would be grateful if he could slip me over some wraps—I think I am missing out on quite a journey. Much as we disagree with the substance and content of the Bill, it is a pleasure to speak in...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: New Clause 1 - “Assimilated law” (18 Ion 2023)

Alyn Smith: I am glad that the hon. Gentleman has mentioned that often-quoted canard. As a starter, the European Medicines Agency had 700 jobs in London, which were lost. There was also absolutely nothing in the UK’s response to covid that membership or otherwise of it hindered; it is important to get that point across. It is perfectly legitimate to have wanted to leave the EU or the European...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: New Clause 1 - “Assimilated law” (18 Ion 2023)

Alyn Smith: That is a point on which we flatly disagree. These legislative instruments were for over 40 or 50 years accepted by the UK Government in this House and latterly in the Scottish Parliament, the Welsh Senedd and others. They were also incorporated by the hon. Gentleman’s Government into domestic law in order to provide ongoing continuity in legal sentencing. So where there are pieces of...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Somalia: Army (12 Ion 2023)

Alyn Smith: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, how many of the Somalia National Army personnel trained in Somalia by the UK military received training in (a) human rights and (b) gender equality since 2017.

Fossil Fuels and Cost of Living Increases — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (11 Ion 2023)

Alyn Smith: The hon. Lady is making an excellent speech, as she always does, and I could not agree more on the importance of energy efficiency. Does she also agree that those who are off grid and reliant on heating oil have the most to gain from piling into renewables and greater energy efficiency, because it would lower housing costs and increase climate efficiency?

Scotland: Impact of Leaving the EU (11 Ion 2023)

Alyn Smith: Whether he has made a recent assessment of the impact of the UK leaving the European Union on Scotland.

Scotland: Impact of Leaving the EU (11 Ion 2023)

Alyn Smith: Brexit has demonstrably been a disaster for the Scottish fisheries sector. The catchers and the processors are having a dreadful time, but even these trading arrangements are due to end in 2026 under the trade and co-operation agreement. What thought has the Secretary of State given to the future trading arrangements after 2026, or will it be just another betrayal?
