European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : Thursday, February 19, 2015
Adam Ingram

I apologise for interrupting you, Jamie.



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : Thursday, February 19, 2015
Adam Ingram

I am sorry, but the point that I was trying to make is that we do not have an agreement in front of us so we cannot assess whether it will be positive or negative for the flow of jobs, for example. With the North American free trade agreement, the Americans believed that they were signing up to something that would increase the number of jobs in their economy, but they exported jobs to places such as Mexico. We cannot take for granted what outcomes the agreement would lead to, can we?



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : Thursday, February 19, 2015
Adam Ingram

I am sorry, Jamie. I want to ask about the rosy glow that seems to surround trade agreements and the feeling that, somehow or other, increased competition will lead to increased jobs all round. If we lose market share in areas, will we not also lose jobs in those areas? For every job that we gain in textiles as tariff barriers come down, might we lose a job in the food industry as cheap American imports displace our own products?



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : Thursday, February 19, 2015
Adam Ingram

Jolly good. Thank you.



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : Thursday, February 19, 2015
Adam Ingram

That sounds a bit more collegiate than elsewhere.



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : Thursday, February 19, 2015
Adam Ingram

That sounds familiar to us in Scotland. Does anyone else want to comment on those matters?



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : Thursday, February 19, 2015
Adam Ingram

And you would like your powers to be extended to that area to allow a minister in your Government to play a leading role in the Council of Ministers, particularly on matters that have been devolved to the Basque Country.



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : Thursday, February 19, 2015
Adam Ingram

You are saying that you have the powers to act internationally to further the competences devolved to you, but does that extend to representation on key international decision-making bodies instead of having to go through the state representatives on those bodies?



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : Thursday, February 19, 2015
Adam Ingram (Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley) (SNP)

How have your constitutional powers to act internationally developed over time? Have they been increasing or have they been confined?



Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 18 February 2015 : Wednesday, February 18, 2015
Adam Ingram

Thank you very much.
