Business of the House (11 Apr 2019)

Richard Benyon: Tilly Green is an 11-year-old who lives in Bradfield, in my constituency. She suffers from cystic fibrosis and would benefit from the use of a drug called Orkambi, but unfortunately the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence does not allow it to be used. I am consulting Ministers about the matter, but it would be a great help if there were the possibility of a debate in the House...

Parental Rights (Rapists) and Family Courts: Continuous At-Sea Deterrent (10 Apr 2019)

Richard Benyon: Looking forward, does my right hon. Friend agree that renewing the fleet with the new Dreadnought class is the most important decision? In doing so, we have decided that we cannot predict what is going to happen in 20, 30 or 40 years. Those who want us to get rid of the deterrent and not renew our fleet are taking a terrible gamble in a dangerous world, because we cannot foresee the enemies...

Parental Rights (Rapists) and Family Courts: Continuous At-Sea Deterrent (10 Apr 2019)

Richard Benyon: I am sure that my right hon. Friend, in this geographic tour of areas that support the at-sea deterrent, was coming on to talk about Aldermaston, in the part of west Berkshire that I represent, and the surrounding area. Thousands of people work in that centre of excellence for science and engineering, the benefits of which spread into the economy, into areas that have nothing to do with the...

World Health: 25-Year Environment Plan (9 Apr 2019)

Richard Benyon: Is the Minister, like me, pleased that, when she was working in 2011 with her boss, the current Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, when he was Secretary of State for Education, the natural environment White Paper reduced the health and safety guidance for schools for learning outside the classroom from more than 100 pages down to just 11 pages? It is that kind of...

World Health: 25-Year Environment Plan (9 Apr 2019)

Richard Benyon: Come to my farm.

World Health: 25-Year Environment Plan (9 Apr 2019)

Richard Benyon: Does the hon. Lady share my increasing anger that our conversation in this place and the conversation in this London postal district of SW1 among the commentariat is obsessed with one issue, which will pass and will be, in history terms, a blip in the road? What we are talking about in this debate is an existential issue, and we have to wise up to that. The young people who campaigned...

World Health: 25-Year Environment Plan (9 Apr 2019)

Richard Benyon: The debate title contains the words “world health”, so we are not talking just about the United Kingdom. Would my hon. Friend therefore welcome the financial investment that the Government have made in the island of South Georgia to do precisely what he was just talking about? Thanks to the RSPB, we have annihilated the mice that were destroying the birdlife. The birdlife on that...

Business of the House (3 Apr 2019)

Richard Benyon: I have agreed with my right hon. Friend the Member for West Dorset (Sir Oliver Letwin) on almost everything. He and I were on the same side in the referendum. In the Government and on the Back Benches, I have been awed by his intellect and his understanding of procedure. I supported him in the Lobby, to the concern of my Front Bench, on a number of occasions recently, not least on indicative...

Richard Benyon: The business motion?

Business of the House (3 Apr 2019)

Richard Benyon: Is it possible to know the hon. Gentleman’s views on the programme motion, which is what we are debating now?

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (1 Apr 2019)

Richard Benyon: I am very grateful to the hon. and learned Lady. Does she agree that one of the failures of this debate, in this House and beyond, is that we do not talk about exactly what no deal is all about—what it actually means for our constituents? We talk about it in too much of a conceptual way, and we let those who are in favour of leaving with no deal get away with not going into the real...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Farming Policy (28 Mar 2019)

Richard Benyon: There is a crisis of species decline in this country. While we can all see the virtues of operations like rewilding and species introduction, it is in the farmed environment where we will turn it around. Will my right hon. Friend assure us that in the Agriculture Bill and in Government policy, there will be a drive towards the right incentives to protect species and reverse the decline in...

Exiting the European Union (Agriculture): Foreign Affairs Committee (19 Mar 2019)

Richard Benyon: I am moved by the speech of the hon. Member for Mitcham and Morden (Siobhain McDonagh). Those were extraordinarily courageous words to say in this extraordinary Parliament, where we find ourselves in unfamiliar territory in so many ways, with a new fluidity in politics that we need to reflect. I will detain the House for only a very short moment. As the leader of the UK delegation to the...

Exiting the European Union (Agriculture): Foreign Affairs Committee (19 Mar 2019)

Richard Benyon: The hon. Lady makes a very important point. I do think that the membership of a Select Committee or of a delegation—although, out there in the real world, it is not what they are talking about in the Dog and Duck—is an indication of the kind of politics we do in this place, and to me, it matters. The machinations of the Labour party are something that, in one sense, we on the Conservative...

Exiting the European Union (Agriculture): Foreign Affairs Committee (19 Mar 2019)

Richard Benyon: I will give way very quickly, and then I will conclude.

Exiting the European Union (Agriculture): Foreign Affairs Committee (19 Mar 2019)

Richard Benyon: I entirely agree with my hon. Friend. I will conclude by saying that the hon. Member for Ilford South does the work, chairs committees and understands how these things work, and I hope—

Exiting the European Union (Agriculture): Foreign Affairs Committee (19 Mar 2019)

Richard Benyon: I will not, because I have made a promise that I am going to shut up. I just want to say that I have huge respect for the hon. Member for Dudley North (Ian Austin) as well. He and I have worked on issues relating to Russia and Magnitsky, and I know his knowledge and understanding, and his courageousness as well. For goodness’ sake, let us be a Parliament that raises ourselves above this....

Exiting the European Union (Agriculture): Foreign Affairs Committee (19 Mar 2019)

Richard Benyon: It seems longer.
