The Secretary of State Was Asked: British-produced Meat (5 May 2016)

George Eustice: We have some of the best native breeds of cattle, pigs and sheep in the world, and we want to promote quality meat that is produced in the United Kingdom. Because we secured country of origin labelling legislation, such labelling is now mandatory on poultry, pigs and lamb, as well as on beef. Two weeks ago, the Secretary of State was in the United States, working to open the market there for...

UK Dairy Sector — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (20 Apr 2016)

Nick Smith: ...who have intervened and made contributions this afternoon. Time is short, so I cannot mention everyone, but the hon. Gentleman certainly gave a great cri de coeur for dairy farmers throughout the country, as well as for the steel industry in Wales—I thank him for that. With the global market in flux and farm-gate prices on the floor, the UK dairy industry is in danger. Some farmers...

Access to Medical Treatments (Innovation) Bill: Second Reading (26 Feb 2016)

Lord Prior of Brampton: ...friend Lord Saatchi. This is his Bill really. Before I was in this place, I remember listening on the radio in a casual way to the arguments being batted around, and, without knowing the details of his earlier Bill, the need for a quantum change in the rate of innovation and adoption of new medicines and products in this country resonated with me. I have just come back from a trip to the...

EU Membership (Audit of Costs and Benefits) Bill (26 Feb 2016)

Tobias Ellwood: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. I would argue that the civil servants we send there are among the best in the world. It is a huge privilege and honour to work in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, although many of the civil servants in Brussels come from other Departments. I must say, however, that we are granted 12% of the jobs in the EU, in the various Commission roles and so forth,...

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. In no area of pharmacology and pharmaceuticals is drug discovery, drug use and prescribing more complex than in mental health. One of the projects on which I worked before entering the House was at the Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College London, where Professor Simon...

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.

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...
