Ukraine (31 Hyd 2022)

Anum Qaisar: The renewed cruise missile attacks on Ukrainian cities and civilian infrastructure this morning were appalling, but, tragically, they are now part of Putin’s almost daily arsenal. By attacking residential areas, electricity infrastructure and water supplies, Putin is ordering his troops to carry out war crimes on a daily basis. As an international community, we cannot allow that to happen....

Written Answers — Department for International Trade: Trade Agreements: India (31 Hyd 2022)

Anum Qaisar: To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, when her Department plans to conclude Free Trade Agreement negotiations with India.

Written Answers — Department for International Trade: Trade Agreements: India (31 Hyd 2022)

Anum Qaisar: To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, what representations her Department made to Indian negotiators on India’s human rights record during free trade agreement negotiations.

Pension Credit and Cost of Living Support Grant (26 Hyd 2022)

Anum Qaisar: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Dowd. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow North East (Anne McLaughlin) for securing this important debate. She spoke incredibly eloquently and framed this debate extremely well. She is a passionate advocate on this subject, and is truly a champion of the cause. The Back Benchers who have spoken today are correct: pensioners are...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill: New Clause 4 - Impact assessment (18 Hyd 2022)

Anum Qaisar: Further to that point of order, Mr Twigg. I will not keep the Committee much longer. I echo the thanks to the Clerks and the Doorkeepers, who are the backbone of this place. Somehow, I seem to have had more help than the official Opposition: Katie, Clo and Calum have been fantastic on the research and background. I am sure that my hon. Friend the Member for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill: New Clause 1 - Impact assessment: four nations of the UK and social, economic and environmental impacts (18 Hyd 2022)

Anum Qaisar: Thank you, Mr Twigg. I will start by correcting the record. I made a comment about the Minister visiting Scotland, and said that he may not feel welcome. Of course, he is always welcome to Scotland; I have even invited him to visit businesses in my constituency.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill: New Clause 1 - Impact assessment: four nations of the UK and social, economic and environmental impacts (18 Hyd 2022)

Anum Qaisar: That invite is on the table. The reality is, of course, that Ministers in the UK Government have not protected geographical indications. The Minister claimed that he could not do everything on day one. That is understandable, but this is before day one; he has a prime opportunity to do something. I urge him and his colleagues to back new clauses 1, 2, and specifically 3, which protects...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill: New Clause 1 - Impact assessment: four nations of the UK and social, economic and environmental impacts (18 Hyd 2022)

Anum Qaisar: Thank you, Mr Twigg. I thank the Minister for his contribution. He is more than welcome to come to Scotland. I have a distillery in my constituency of Airdrie and Shotts and he is more than welcome to visit, though I warn him that he may not get as good a response as he hopes, as a Tory MP walking the streets of Scotland.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill: New Clause 1 - Impact assessment: four nations of the UK and social, economic and environmental impacts (18 Hyd 2022)

Anum Qaisar: I am very pleased to hear the Minister say that he has been meeting businesses to reassure them, but how many official visits has he made to Scotland to speak to and reassure farmers, hill crofters and those with Scotch whisky distilleries about these trade deals?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill: Clause 4 - Extent, commencement and short title (18 Hyd 2022)

Anum Qaisar: The Minister struggled to say the name of the Scottish National party at the start of his speech. I was a modern studies teacher before my election, and I would be more than happy to share my old PowerPoints on Scottish politics with him if he is struggling to remember the name of the largest party in Scotland. Over the course of today’s sitting, we have heard time and time again—mainly...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill: New Clause 1 - Impact assessment: four nations of the UK and social, economic and environmental impacts (18 Hyd 2022)

Anum Qaisar: The SNP has proposed new clauses 1, 2 and 3 because we need impact assessments to fully examine the practicalities of these trade deals in matters of procurement, which is so important. I will begin with new clause 1. By examining the social, economic and environmental impacts, we can ensure that we are presented with a fair assessment. That is especially important, as we believe that the UK...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill: New Clause 1 - Impact assessment: four nations of the UK and social, economic and environmental impacts (18 Hyd 2022)

Anum Qaisar: I thank my hon. Friend for his intervention. He is correct, because there is real concern that these industries will be threatened by imitation products, which risks undercutting Scottish companies. Geographical indications are of considerable importance for Scotland because, as I say, they protect the origins of our world-renowned products. Examples include Scotch beef, Scottish-farmed...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill: New Clause 1 - Impact assessment: four nations of the UK and social, economic and environmental impacts (18 Hyd 2022)

Anum Qaisar: I thank my hon. Friend for his intervention; he is completely correct. What people may fail to consider—it is important to remember this—is that the food and drinks industry is twice as important to the Scottish economy as to the UK as a whole, and the food and drink export trade is four times as important to the Scottish economy. The legislation in front of us will impact industry, with...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill: Clause 4 - Extent, commencement and short title (18 Hyd 2022)

Anum Qaisar: I beg to move amendment 2, in clause 4, page 3, line 5, at end insert— “(4) This Act expires on 31 December 2027.”

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill: Clause 4 - Extent, commencement and short title (18 Hyd 2022)

Anum Qaisar: The UK Government are negotiating trade deals for the first time in more than 30 years, and that is not an easy task. Trade deals in matters of procurement are not just for Government photo ops; they impact on every fibre of our and our constituents’ being. Therefore, we must have high levels of security at the start, during and at the end of discussion about the legislation. I appreciate...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill: Clause 1 - Power to implement government procurement Chapters (18 Hyd 2022)

Anum Qaisar: The legislation does not reflect the values that Scotland stands for, and it does not adequately safeguard food and farming standards in Scotland. The powers in the Bill should not be exercisable by UK Ministers in relation to Scotland without a requirement for them to secure the consent of Scottish Ministers. That is what amendments 3 and 4 propose. While negotiation of international...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill: Clause 1 - Power to implement government procurement Chapters (18 Hyd 2022)

Anum Qaisar: It will come as no surprise to the Minister that the SNP will disagree with what he is saying. However, we are content to reconsider the amendment and will perhaps bring it back at a later stage. I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill: Clause 1 - Power to implement government procurement Chapters (18 Hyd 2022)

Anum Qaisar: I beg to move amendment 3, in clause 1, page 1, line 15, at end insert— “(3A) Where the appropriate authority is a Minister of the Crown, regulations under subsection (1) may not be made until the appropriate authority has consulted the relevant Scottish Ministers in relation to any matters affecting Scotland.”

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill: Clause 1 - Power to implement government procurement Chapters (18 Hyd 2022)

Anum Qaisar: I should say, Mr Pritchard, that it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. Amendments 3 and 4, which I tabled with my hon. Friend the Member for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey, can be summed up as standing up for Scotland and Scottish farmers on procurement. The Bill fails to ensure that Scottish Ministers have the ability to scrutinise matters of procurement that impact...
