European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Humza Yousaf As I said, the Bank of England is ours, because Scottish taxpayers have contributed to it since 1946. We will operate in that framework. In fair negotiations, if we are going to take a portion of the debt, we will get a portion of the asset, too, so the Bank of England would be included in that resp...

European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Humza Yousaf It is absolutely fair to have that position and I would not argue with you on that. We will agree to disagree, because I will not be able to convince you about the merits of independence and you will not convince me about the merits of the union. The point is that even somebody who is entrenched in ...

European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Humza Yousaf Yes. We have said absolutely that we will keep the pound, because of the reasons I outlined in my answer to Willie Coffey. Of course we would keep the pound. It would be in everybody’s self-interest, including your own. You highlighted the point perfectly, and I commend you for doing that. You clear...

European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Humza Yousaf I genuinely do not think that it matters what colour the Government is, or what the mixture of the colours is. Going by current polling it could be a UKIP-Tory coalition or anything. Polls do not indicate exactly what Government we will get in 2015, but whatever the colour of that Government, common...

European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Humza Yousaf It is not just the Scottish Government’s position; it is also the UK Government’s position, as we have seen from the article in The Guardian about a UK Government minister saying that there would be a currency union. We have also had Ruth Davidson saying that she would be arguing for a currency unio...

European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Humza Yousaf We have been unequivocal in the white paper and have stated many times as a matter of public record that we would look to preserve continuity of employment. That means that we would, of course, enter into negotiation with the UK Government.

The people who are based in the DFID office are...

European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Humza Yousaf Very much so.



European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Humza Yousaf One of the beauties of a yes vote on 18 September is that we will get to inform the future direction of our country from the very foundations.

Although there was some disagreement between Bruce Adamson and Professor Tomkins on that point in the evidence session, I definitely agree with B...

European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Humza Yousaf Obviously, I entirely agree with Professor Bailes. I read her evidence, which I thought was comprehensive and articulate on that point. There was no room whatsoever for ambiguity, and that view was shared by a number of experts in the same evidence session. They made the obvious points that 25 out o...

European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Humza Yousaf No, I do not support the idea of Scotland starting from scratch at all.

Regardless of which side of the debate we sit on, all of us should take great pride in the referendum process. The fact that two Governments that are diametrically opposed on just about every issue, particularly the s...
