Agriculture Bill: Clause 4 - Multi-annual financial assistance plans (12 Oct 2020)

Bill Wiggin: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Angus (Dave Doogan), just as I did after his maiden speech. May I say that he needs to allow a little more of his Scottish charm to seep into his speeches? I need to declare my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests, particularly as a breeder of Hereford cattle. Some 88% of Herefordshire is farmland, and 10,200 people work on...

Agriculture Bill: Clause 4 - Multi-annual financial assistance plans (12 Oct 2020)

Bill Wiggin: I agree not only with my hon. Friend but with my hon. Friend the Member for The Cotswolds (Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown), who said he made an excellent speech—he did. Our two largest trading partners would be gone, threatening £22 billion-worth of exports of food, drink and feed—everything we are selling. The EU has already threatened to ban animal products, a trade worth £3 billion,...

Agriculture Bill: Clause 4 - Multi-annual financial assistance plans (12 Oct 2020)

Bill Wiggin: Rightly or wrongly, it would become illegal, if we follow these rules, to bring anything from the EU that did not allow that into this country. My hon. Friend is right to raise that; it is wrong. Food labelling is the solution, and to have a grass-fed label that allows 49% of the feed to be grain is just not right. We need to be an outwardly global, free trade-friendly but sensible country....

Agriculture Bill: Clause 4 - Multi-annual financial assistance plans (12 Oct 2020)

Bill Wiggin: I do not get any extra minutes for that intervention. I ask Members also to think about our stocking density for chickens, which is 39 kg per square metre, as opposed to 42kg in the EU. German hop growers use chemicals that would not be allowed in this country, and apparently the French will give a derogation for neonicotinoids so that their farmers can produce oilseed rape. That is...

Agriculture Bill: Clause 4 - Multi-annual financial assistance plans (12 Oct 2020)

Bill Wiggin: What else has my right hon. Friend done about how he feels about this matter? Has he written to anyone about it?

Covid-19 Update (5 Oct 2020)

Bill Wiggin: My right hon. Friend gave an excellent answer to our right hon. Friend the Member for Tunbridge Wells (Greg Clark). The JCVI report is indeed most helpful and reassuring because it prioritises the vulnerable, the elderly and, of course, our health workers. However, it last met on 1 September, and the report is dated 23 September. Can my right hon. Friend confirm that if there is more...

Covid-19 (28 Sep 2020)

Bill Wiggin: Since covid-19 began, sadly in Herefordshire we have seen 128 deaths and 1,008 people have tested positive. However, looking to France as an example of where we could be in just a matter of weeks, there have been 14,412 new cases in the last 24 hours, compared to just 5,693 in the UK. In the past week, 4,102 people in France were admitted to hospital, 763 of whom needed intensive care; here,...

Covid-19 (28 Sep 2020)

Bill Wiggin: My hon. Friend is right, but everybody who takes the vaccine reduces the risk proportionately for everybody else. It is all about the R number, as he knows. That is why the Government have been right to pre-book the vaccines: 100 million doses of the AstraZeneca and University of Oxford vaccine, 30 million doses of the Pfizer and BioNTech vaccine, which is the next one in evaluation stage...
