European and External Relations Committee 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
The Cabinet Secretary for Culture and External Affairs (Fiona Hyslop) I will be brief. I am grateful to the committee for giving me the opportunity to be here, and I look forward to answering your questions. I also thank you for accommodating me time-wise because I must depart for the airport to go on Government business.

I thank the committee for conductin...

European and External Relations Committee 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Fiona Hyslop It is in everyone’s interests to ensure that we have as smooth a transition as possible. That is in the interests of not just Scotland but the rest of the UK and our friends in the rest of the European Union.

At the point of a vote for independence, on 19 September Scotland will still be ...

European and External Relations Committee 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Fiona Hyslop I agree with the evidence that Sir David Edward gave. He is a former judge of the European Court of Justice, and it was interesting that in February European Commission vice-president Viviane Reding described him as a true architect of the European Union. I understand the point that he made when he ...

European and External Relations Committee 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Fiona Hyslop I am sure that Alistair Carmichael can speak for himself. However, David Cameron’s point that he would support Scotland’s membership of the European Union is important and reflects the Edinburgh agreement.

Although a large number of people in Scotland—Jamie McGrigor perhaps aside—do not ...

European and External Relations Committee 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Fiona Hyslop Yes.



European and External Relations Committee 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Fiona Hyslop As the committee acknowledges—and everyone acknowledges—the situation is unprecedented, so negotiation will have to evolve at a political level. Where there is a political will, there will be a way. The EU is a past master at dealing with unprecedented situations, which have happened on a number of ...

European and External Relations Committee 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Fiona Hyslop I am happy to send the details of the case to you.



European and External Relations Committee 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Fiona Hyslop You have identified the key importance of a good and positive relationship with the rest of the UK in the period from 19 September onwards. I go back to my point that, however heated the debate will be from different political positions, it is very important that we behave in a responsible way as Go...

European and External Relations Committee 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Fiona Hyslop There will be lots of discussions and negotiations on different areas. An important thing that the committee might want to discuss is continuity of effect, as we set out in “Scotland’s Future”. There are a number of reasons for that. It might have been advantageous for us if we wanted to renegotiate...

European and External Relations Committee 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Fiona Hyslop That is their opinion and what they would prefer as opposed to what is required, and the committee will want to look at what is required as opposed to personal preferences. In “Scotland’s Future”, we have clearly set out the proposition that we will put to the Scottish people in September. The Scott...
