Orders of the Day — Animal Health Bill: New Clause 7 — Duty of Ministers to disposal of carcasses (13 Dec 2001)

Keith Simpson: We have held an interesting, short debate. My hon. Friends and I and Liberal Democrat Members are not especially convinced by the Minister's argument. In fact, I am not even sure that many Members on either side of the House are convinced of the general arguments in favour of the Bill. The Minister is a fair man, who is frequently left by his ministerial colleagues to bat alone, and he is...

Orders of the Day — Animal Health Bill: New Clause 7 — Duty of Ministers to disposal of carcasses (13 Dec 2001)

Keith Simpson: I hear what the hon. Gentleman says, but this is pure Corporal Jones—people cry, "Don't panic," but that is exactly what the Government are doing. I have long experience of defence matters, and however appalling the Ministry of Defence has been at times, the one thing that it has learned from experience is that lessons have to be learned very quickly. In fact, the Minister wants a shotgun...

Trunk Roads (Norfolk) (9 Jan 2002)

Keith Simpson: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Trunk Roads (Norfolk) (9 Jan 2002)

Keith Simpson: I happily rise in support of my hon. Friend. The two issues are road safety and, as I am sure the Minister will understand, the stop-go travelling between Great Yarmouth and King's Lynn, which is detrimental to economic investment. Large parts of my constituency are desperate for the A47 to be dualled.

Police (30 Jan 2002)

Keith Simpson: I wish to address the problems faced by Norfolk police. Governments of both persuasions have historically provided a relatively low level of funding for our police. I would not claim that our problems are as intense as some of those faced in inner-city conurbations, but I hope that the Minister will take my points on board. The Minister knows that expenditure on policing per head of...

Police (30 Jan 2002)

Keith Simpson: No, I am sorry, but I have limited time. Indeed, the Norfolk police force has identified that it needs an additional 340 officers fully to meet all anticipated requirements in the medium term. The increase will not enable investment in necessary information technology infrastructure. To give but one example, Norfolk is one of only two forces still on Holmes l—it sounds like something out of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Agricultural Shows (31 Jan 2002)

Keith Simpson: The Minister's comment that he would be able to announce a decision within the next few days will be warmly welcomed by all those involved in agricultural shows.

Member for Keighley (Mrs. Cryer) said, there are effects not only on the farming community but on the...
