Environmental Audit Committee (17 Jan 2019)

Kerry McCarthy: This is another excellent report by the Environmental Audit Committee and I am very proud to have been a part it. The underlying principle that such reports should always follow is that the planet’s resources are precious and should be preserved, not plundered, whether they be fish or rare minerals that could be found in hydrothermal vents. That should underpin everything we do. Does the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (17 Jan 2019)

Kerry McCarthy: Yet another report has been published this morning—this time in The Lancet—highlighting the damage that our food systems are doing to not only public health, with 11 million avoidable deaths, but the climate. I have been banging on about this for more than 10 years in this place. Is there any chance that the Government will ever listen to these reports?

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Kerry McCarthy: This is undoubtedly one of the most important votes that I or anyone else in the House will participate in during our parliamentary careers. I agree with my hon. Friend the Member for City of Durham (Dr Blackman-Woods) that we should not be here. The very fact that we are where we are, having this debate 78 days before exit day, is a sign of failure. It is a sign that the people have been...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Kerry McCarthy: On that point about ensuring that there is no lowering of standards in any post-Brexit trade deals, will my hon. Friend be supporting my new clause 1 to the Agriculture Bill and a similar amendment that the Chair of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee has tabled, to make absolutely sure that we do not see a lowering of standards for food coming into this country? As we saw at...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Kerry McCarthy: Well, it was vegan, but the Secretary of State had cheese. There is definitely a consensus that no deal would be absolutely disastrous for the farming community. The Secretary of State is totally focusing on the risks of no deal, and to me that is something of a red herring. We could easily avoid no deal—it is entirely in the Prime Minister’s power to avoid no deal either by extending or...

Deaths of Homeless People (20 Dec 2018)

I also echo her praise for Michael Yong, the reporter from the Bristol Post.

International Trade: WTO: Food Security and Agriculture (20 Dec 2018)

Kerry McCarthy: I understand that a number of important WTO member states have objected to the UK and EU splitting tariff rate quotas post Brexit. At the end of October, the Secretary of State announced that the UK would be entering into general agreement on tariffs and trade negotiations. Is that another illustration of the fact that we cannot unilaterally negotiate trading arrangements post Brexit with...
