Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: European Economic and Social Committee (16 Mai 2023)

Alyn Smith: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, if he will make an assessment of the potential merits of negotiating a universal declaration of ocean rights.

Overseas Territories (11 Mai 2023)

Alyn Smith: It is a genuine pleasure to wind up for the SNP in this genuinely very interesting debate. I pay tribute to the Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, the hon. Member for Rutland and Melton (Alicia Kearns), for bringing this important subject forward. I think it is safe to say that the SNP’s world view on this stuff is different from many of the views we have heard from colleagues today....

Overseas Territories (11 Mai 2023)

Alyn Smith: I was going to be more polite and say some are and indeed some are not, but if the hon. Gentleman wants some statistics, in February 2022 Transparency International linked £830 million-worth of property in the overseas territories and Crown dependencies to individuals close to Russian President Vladimir Putin. In 2018 Global Witness said £34 billion was currently invested by Russians with...

Overseas Territories (11 Mai 2023)

Alyn Smith: I agree, and I have pressed in a number of previous debates in this place for complementarity of the sanctions regime across the overseas territories and a number have done very well, but we must maintain vigilant on this. In the same way that London is a centre of dirty money, the overseas territories play a part in that network as well and we must be vigilant on that point. On other...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (11 Mai 2023)

Alyn Smith: I confess to being a wee bit conflicted this morning. I led for the SNP during our consideration of the Bill, and my key phrase was, “If you must do this damn silly thing, don’t do it in this damn silly way.” I am at least glad to see that we are doing this in a less damn silly way than we were, although I still disagree with it. I share the anger that we have heard from Conservative...

Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Mai 2023)

Alyn Smith: In Stirling, we have a potentially very exciting development at Forthside on former Ministry of Defence land. Sadly, the development has got a bit stuck over a dispute about the cost of the decontamination of that land. I will work with anybody to get a result for Stirling. Will the Prime Minister meet me and representatives of Stirling Council to get the development unblocked and make the...

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Horizon Europe ( 2 Mai 2023)

Alyn Smith: I am puzzled by the UK Government’s approach. There is cross-party unity in the House, and the Minister is missing an opportunity for a great deal of support. We all want to see our universities back in Horizon Europe, and we all want to see the thousands of jobs and hundreds of millions of pounds guaranteed. Just a couple of weeks ago, Professor Iain Gillespie of the University of Dundee...

UK’s Exit from the European Union — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (24 Ebr 2023)

Alyn Smith: It is a pleasure to wind up the debate for the SNP. I do feel for our Minister today—he has been the thinnest of blue lines, and I look forward to hearing his response. As much as I do not necessarily have a great deal of hope for the substance of it, I do have much respect for him personally for the position he finds himself in today. I pay tribute to the organisers of the petition and the...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Pakistan: Elections (24 Ebr 2023)

Alyn Smith: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what recent discussions he has had with his counterparts in Pakistan on the operation of free, fair and safe elections in that country.

Sudan (17 Ebr 2023)

Alyn Smith: The word “heartbreaking” has been used by a number of colleagues already this afternoon and I will be no exception. The recent events in Sudan are a tragedy because there was some progress. That makes it all the more poignant that we are now dealing with the current situation. I have a number of questions for the Minister. He can rest assured of our support for a durable peace—I think...

Vladimir Kara-Murza (17 Ebr 2023)

Alyn Smith: There is a lot of agreement across the House that Mr Kara-Murza is a hero and deserves our support. He is not the only person languishing in one of Vladimir Putin’s jails under trumped-up charges—Russia does not have a judicial system that is worthy of international respect or credibility—but he is a British citizen, which means the UK Government have specific obligations to him. I hope...

Education: Early Years Support for Families (17 Ebr 2023)

Alyn Smith: One thing I am most concerned about in terms of educational attainment in early years and primary is food insecurity, which is rising in all our constituencies. Much of this is devolved, of course, but I do not want to see hungry kids anywhere and hungry kids cannot learn. The Institute for Fiscal Studies found that seven out of 10 children in families on universal credit are not entitled to...

Russian Assets: Seizure (14 Maw 2023)

Alyn Smith: It is a pleasure to wind up for the SNP in this very constructive debate. We support the motion. I commend the right hon. Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Sir Iain Duncan Smith) for moving it; I can hardly do anything but support it, because I called for the same thing from this spot on 26 April last year and reiterated that call on 25 May and 22 September. The SNP has long been...

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Girls’ Access to Education (14 Maw 2023)

Alyn Smith: We all strongly support the education of girls worldwide. That is something that we should all be working on, but the UK must avoid the danger of reinventing the wheel. The EU already has 100 co-operation agreements on education, of which the UK was a leading part until recently. With the thaw in EU-UK relations, for which I commend the Government for fixing the Northern Ireland protocol...

Work and Pensions: Benefit Fraud ( 6 Maw 2023)

Alyn Smith: indicated dissent.

Work and Pensions: Cost of Living: Support for Disabled People ( 6 Maw 2023)

Alyn Smith: On benefits, I am delighted to hear that some things are being done, but, from a Scottish perspective, I really do not think that it is enough. 38 Degrees has done polling across all our constituencies, and 70% of respondents in Stirling agreed that this UK Government “do not understand the impact the cost of living crisis is having on people”. Do Ministers accept that vote of no confidence?

Northern Ireland Protocol (27 Chw 2023)

Alyn Smith: We welcome this, and I commend the achievement that helping mitigate the disaster has represented, but can I dig into the Stormont backstop? I am concerned that in fixing one problem, there is a recipe for further instability going forward. If the petition of concern is the model for what the Stormont backstop is going to be and, as we all admit, there are concerns about the petition of...
