Meeting of the Parliament 25 February 2015 : 25 February 2015
Christina McKelvie

The cabinet secretary will know that farmers in my constituency of Hamilton, Larkhall and Stonehouse are extremely anxious about TTIP. Last week, at the European and External Relations Committee, Lord Livingston went to great pains to suggest that all of the standards are currently exempt.

Will the cabinet secretary tell me what reassurances he has had from the United Kingdom Government on seeking reservations from the European Commission on, in particular, animal health standards, genetically modified organisms, food standards and, of course, protected name status for produce such as Scotch and the Stornoway black pudding, of which my colleague Jamie McGrigor is a great champion?

7. Christina McKelvie (Hamilton, Larkhall and Stonehouse) (SNP)

To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with farmers or their representatives on the impact of the transatlantic trade and investment partnership on animal welfare and food standards. (S4O-04037)



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : 19 February 2015
The Convener

I thank members very much for their patience and participation this morning.

Meeting closed at 11:32.  

European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : 19 February 2015
The Convener

Under our last agenda item, I seek the committee’s agreement to take in private consideration of the committee’s draft reports on TTIP and our EU engagement strategy.

Members indicated agreement.



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : 19 February 2015
The Convener

Thank you very much for coming to the committee. TTIP has been a matter of great consternation, not just in the committee but among the public, as you will have seen in the public gallery. There has been a lot of very keen interest in TTIP, a lot of fear and possibly a lot of misunderstanding, but maybe some very clear statements from the UK Government would address some of that and allay some of those fears. I hope that we have learned a lot from you this morning and we hope that you have learned a lot from us.



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : 19 February 2015
The Convener

We have to finish there, because we have another agenda item that we must deal with before we finish today. Committees are not allowed to continue when the chamber is sitting, and the Parliament will meet in nine minutes.



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : 19 February 2015
The Convener

I will pass over to Hanzala.



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : 19 February 2015
The Convener

We will resume from the point at which we were interrupted.



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : 19 February 2015
The Convener

Willie, do you want to finish your line of questioning?



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : 19 February 2015
The Convener

Will the UK Government now be in a position to answer the First Minister’s letter when she seeks those reassurances?
