Recent appearances

  • Rural Crime — [Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] 9 Apr 2014

    I am interested in the shadow Minister’s view on whether the increased use of technology in urban and suburban areas is driving the practice out. Has the technology got so good in urban and suburban areas that the problem is simply being spread over a wider rural area?
  • Rural Crime — [Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] 9 Apr 2014

    In mentioning that he was not talking about whether there should be a badger cull, the shadow Minister made his point obliquely; but does he agree that the entire cost of policing the badger culls was for policing illegal harassment and activity by animal rights organisations? Should not that be the focus of our attention, and does not it support the point made by my hon. Friend the Member...
  • Rural Crime — [Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] 9 Apr 2014

    I take the shadow Minister’s point, but does he concede that there would be no cost to legitimate, lawful, peaceful protest? The only cost is for dealing with illegal elements. Legitimate protest comes at zero cost.
