Foot and Mouth ( 3 May 2001)

Mr David Madel: The Minister will recall that he answered a question from me last week about vaccine strategy for zoos. I am grateful to the civil servants in his office, who have listened to my representations since he answered that question. He knows how important that is for Whipsnade zoo in my constituency. Is the vaccine strategy document for zoos now in the public domain? If not, when will it be? When...

Mr David Madel: The right hon. Gentleman will be aware that I asked him, in a written question on 9 April, whether he would release vaccine to zoos that may need it to vaccinate endangered species that are susceptible to foot and mouth disease. He also knows that Whipsnade zoo is in my constituency. Apart from the welfare of the animals there, it is an extremely important part of the local economy. Can the...

Mr David Madel: I should like to add to the point about roots made by my hon. Friend the Member for Faversham and Mid-Kent.

Public Bill Committee: High Hedges Bill: Clause 7 - Appeal against remedial notice or decision of relevant authority (21 Mar 2001)

Mr David Madel: My brief point follows on from that made by my hon. Friend the Member for Chipping Barnet (Sir Sydney Chapman). The clause deals with grievances—with people who are upset or disappointed. If a person thinks that the local authority is being slow or inattentive to his or her grievance, is he or she to approach the Secretary of State or the local ombudsman? I am a great believer in the local...

Public Bill Committee: High Hedges Bill: Clause 4 - Procedure for dealing with complaints (21 Mar 2001)

Clause 4(8) states that a fee ``must not exceed the prescribed amount''. If a fee is to be charged, will it be uniform throughout the country, and what will the local authority do with the money? I hope that there will not be...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (12 Mar 2001)

Mr David Madel: In his Budget speech, the Chancellor made a glancing reference to farming industry. He referred to farming—an industry essential to Britain, which today faces immediate and long-standing difficulties". Since he made that reference, things have got much worse, and they are getting much worse for the tourist industry as well. A real crisis is brewing up. I know that a number of electioneering...

Business of the House ( 8 Mar 2001)

Mr David Madel: Last month, the Government signed the treaty of Nice. Have the parliamentary draftsmen completed the necessary work for the ratification Bill to be presented to the House? When it is presented to the House, can we be assured that there will be no guillotine attached to it, since it is a constitutional measure that must receive very full consideration?
