Michelle O'Neill: ...and its quality, traceability and high standards are recognised worldwide. When we go out to seek new markets, we can always stand over that very high quality.

I have focused on resolving that issue since EU country-of-origin labelling began to take effect on this...

Access to Medical Treatments (Innovation) Bill: Clause 2 — Database of innovative treatments (29 Jan 2016)

George Freeman: My hon. Friend has made a typically interesting and important point. I pay tribute to his work on mental health.

Cancer Drugs — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (19 Jan 2016)

Jo Churchill: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Mid Derbyshire (Pauline Latham) for calling a debate on an issue that is important not only to me and several of my constituents, but to the broader population. The Cancer Drugs Fund is not fit for purpose. As the chief executive of Cancer Research UK, who chaired the independent taskforce that looked into the fund, pointed out, we have several problems....

Food Security — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (6 Jan 2016)

George Eustice: May I begin by congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for St Ives (Derek Thomas) on securing the debate?

Health — Motion to Take Note (26 Nov 2015)

Baroness Jay of Paddington: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Crisp, for introducing this debate in such an informative and authoritative way. It is obviously a very important issue.

Scottish Parliament: Time for Reflection (10 Nov 2015)

Dr Colin Mackenzie (Edinburgh Napier University): Presiding Officer and members of the Scottish Parliament, today you may be surprised to discover that I am not here to talk business or education but about how I have been personally inspired by an incredible paper-book sculpture called “The Butterflies”, which is currently outside this chamber. This talk is about what the...

Education and Adoption Bill — Second Reading (20 Oct 2015)

Lord Watson of Invergowrie: ...very great pleasure to welcome to these benches my noble friend Lord Blunkett. I await with great interest his maiden speech. It is also slightly unnerving to have behind me two former Secretaries of State for Education as well as a recent education Front-Bench spokesperson from my party, so, if nothing else, that will keep me on my toes. It is widely acknowledged that today fundamental...

Bills Presented: Immigration Bill (13 Oct 2015)

Gerald Kaufman: The Home Secretary made her notorious speech in Manchester just a few minutes from my constituency. Had she come down the road, she would have seen tens of thousands of people who came under the contemptuous label she uttered this afternoon: “these people”. “These people”, of whom there are tens of thousands in my constituency, originate from south Asia, east and west...

Enterprise Bill [HL]: Second Reading (Continued) (12 Oct 2015)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: My Lords, I thank all the speakers who have contributed to this debate. It has been extremely interesting, we have had had a lot of expertise on display and a number of points have been made.

Scottish Parliament: Agriculture (Challenges and Opportunities) (23 Sep 2015)

Richard Lochhead: ...is already too late, and that once it is completed and implemented, we will be into the next common agricultural policy period. Scotland needs the wrongs to be put right now, not later. A range of sectors faces challenges, and we have had to step up to the plate and respond to them urgently. We have done our best to do that, particularly in areas such as dairy. In March, we launched our...

Dairy Industry — Question for Short Debate (17 Sep 2015)

the Duke of Somerset: My Lords, I, too, thank the noble Earl, Lord Shrewsbury, for initiating this timely Question for Short Debate. I declare an interest as an owner of agricultural land. The background to this EU-wide farming crisis is well known and has been well rehearsed. However, maybe some repetition at this point would serve for a bit of emphasis. A price fall of from 25% to—some say—50% since...

Scottish Parliament: Internationalising Scottish Business (10 Sep 2015)

Cameron Buchanan: As we all know, Scotland is well known all over the world for certain original and iconic products. Whisky, tartan and bagpipes are examples.

I have travelled all over the world many times selling Scotland and appeared at many trade shows under the British flag—I emphasise that...

United Kingdom: Productivity — Motion to Take Note (8 Sep 2015)

Lord Flight: My Lords, I will focus, separately, on the unusual period of 2007 to 2015 and the general long-term structural weakness in UK productivity growth. The UK economy did not get back to its 2007 level until the beginning of 2015, but with some 6% more people employed, remarkably. In a sense, this was socially good. Historically, after a financial crash, thousands of people may have been thrown...
