The memo stresses that all “removable aliens” could be subject to immigration enforcement under the new guidelines. The Migration Policy Institute, which bills itself as a non-partisan think tank, found that more than half of an estimated 1.9 million deportable immigrants with criminal records were in the country lawfully, either using green cards or some other type of visa. The guidance issued Tuesday prioritizes the arrest of deportable immigrants who have abused public benefits, misrepresented themselves, or in the judgment of an immigration officer, otherwise pose a risk to public safety or national security. The memo gives few specifics on how each of these criteria will be determined. The guidance also makes clear that driving without a license, a frequent offense for undocumented immigrants, could make an individual subject to immigration arrest, detention and, if found removable by final order, removal from the United States.

It will lead to a million arguments about whether we should be detaching ourselves or not. The argument isn't over. The nature of our relationship. It isn't clear what those people really think. You say they are interested in openness and working with our European colleagues but they've done nothing to bring about that vision.

So you are seeing larger businesses, and these are not necessarily multi-million multinational companies. Very often quite modest shops with a rateable value above 50,000 are paying an additional supplement twice the rate of the UK level. We think that sends out the wrong message. Having businesses in Scotland taxed more highly than those elsewhere in the UK is simply going to deter investment in Scotland and drive away business. Of course we still have the issue of property valuation, that has not been done for years.

That is on top of an extra £185 million he found three weeks ago to buy off the Greens so I think the obvious question is how much more money has Derek Mackay got squirreled away? He must have the fattest sofa in the country. Every time he puts his hand between the cushions he comes up with a wad of extra cash. So if Derek Mackay can find £42 million today and could find £185 million three weeks ago I think there is a serious conversation to be had with him about what additional resources might be found to help those businesses who were not helped today.

So I am glad they have finally got the message and finally acted. It is not going as far as many people in the business community would like but for those in hospitality and renewable energy it is welcome relief for the coming year. If it has done little to ease the concerns of some businesses and you say they would need real help, what would the Scottish Conservatives propose and I suppose critically, what would that cost? Derek Mackay managed to find today an extra £42 million that he had squirreled away that he did not tell anybody about.

So that was already an extra package of £155 million, taking our total support of reliefs nationally to over £600 million. That is the actions I had previously outlined but in the light of concerns that had been raised legitimately with me I have been working over the last number of days and weeks to refine that, to give additional support which has been very warmly received in the business community. These are significant sums of money you are talking about, 155 you mentioned and 40, of that order today.
