Recent appearances

  • Previous Business – Commons: Select Committee 24 Oct 2018

    Procedure: Motions under section 13(1) of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. 2:45 pm; Room 15, Palace of Westminster
    Witnesses: Rt Hon Mr Dominic Grieve QC MP Rt Hon Sir Oliver Letwin MP Mr Chris Leslie MP
  • Agriculture Bill 10 Oct 2018

    Before my hon. Friend moves on, I share his ambition in those respects, but does he agree that as the general framework for subsidy support or payment for ecosystem services lies in this Bill, and the general framework for the environment will lie in the environment Bill, it is appropriate that issues such as the contracting he describes should be covered in secondary legislation?
  • Agriculture Bill 10 Oct 2018

    I am grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way again. The question of how the Select Committee will proceed under his chairmanship seems an important one to resolve. I think that many of us would welcome his driving on that issue, as long as it is done in a way that recognises that we are not trying to build it into the two pieces of primary legislation, which would confuse the issue.
