European and External Relations Committee 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Jamie McGrigor (Highlands and Islands) (Con) Since the correspondence referred to under item 4 is in the public domain, is it necessary to take that item in private?



European and External Relations Committee 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Jamie McGrigor Can we not have a frank and open discussion in public?



European and External Relations Committee 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Jamie McGrigor Okay. I was just making a point.



European and External Relations Committee 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Jamie McGrigor Cabinet secretary, polls suggest that in Scotland support for EU membership stands at around 53 per cent. However, recent opinion polls show that a majority of Scots—about 58 per cent—want a referendum on EU membership. I should say that I am keen for Scotland to remain a member of the EU, but do yo...

If possible, could you make that clear? Moreover, wha...

European and External Relations Committee 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Jamie McGrigor So you do not think that we would have to join the euro.



European and External Relations Committee 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Jamie McGrigor Even if you go down the article 49 route?



European and External Relations Committee 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Jamie McGrigor I know that Sweden got around the requirements in the way that you describe—it did not join the ERM—but I understand that the Commission has since said that other countries would not be able to follow that line.

Going back to 2004, a lot of people, including Mr Barroso and Mr Prodi, have ...
