Angela Smith: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, pursuant to the Answer of 25 July 2017 to Question 5217, how the Government plans for bycatch fish species identified in the European Council of Ministers' General Approach to the North Sea Multi Annual Plan to be restored to and maintained above biomass levels capable of producing maximum sustainable yield in the event...

The Rohingya and the Myanmar Government: Sale of Puppies (17 Oct 2017)

Angela Smith: As a member of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee, I am pleased to hear about some of the proposed changes. However, who will bear the cost of training suitably qualified inspectors at the local authority level?

The Rohingya and the Myanmar Government: Sale of Puppies (17 Oct 2017)

Angela Smith: The Minister is being generous in giving way. I, too, applaud PAAG for its work—it has been very successful—but some advertisements are disappearing only to be found on sites other than the big six. Surely the Minister agrees that the Government have done part but not all of the job of dealing with problems relating to online sales.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Angela Smith: The Bill represents not just a step along the way towards departure from the European Union, but an unacceptable attempt by the Government to strengthen their hand when it comes to exercising legislative power—and this at a time when the general belief is that we should be going in the opposite direction, in effect giving a bigger role to Parliament. Only three years ago, the Hansard...

Violence in Rakhine State (5 Sep 2017)

Angela Smith: I participated in the induction programme for the new Parliament last year, and I appreciate the challenges facing Burma as it transitions towards democracy. I also appreciate the efforts made by the UK Government and Parliament—let us not overlook its role—in supporting that democratic development. Surely, though, it is vital that the UK Government and this Parliament continually...

Adjournment (November and Christmas): Business of the House (Private Members’ Bills) (17 Jul 2017)

Angela Smith: The Opposition’s view on the motion is not about causing trouble; it is about maintaining an important democratic principle of this House, which is that in a two-year Session that has already been declared it is perfectly legitimate and fair that the Government should allocate a proportionate number of days for private Members’ Bills. They could do that tonight if they wanted to....

Adjournment (November and Christmas): Business of the House (Private Members’ Bills) (17 Jul 2017)

Angela Smith: My hon. Friend strengthens and enhances my point. We need the route offered to us by private Members’ Bills to correct failures by Government to deal with such important issues. The Scottish National party Front-Bench spokesperson, the hon. Member for Perth and North Perthshire (Pete Wishart), has already referred to the very important measure introduced by the previous Member for...

Adjournment (November and Christmas): Business of the House (Private Members’ Bills) (17 Jul 2017)

Angela Smith: Surely the important point is that, of the 14 Bills that made it on to the statute book in the previous two parliamentary Sessions, three came from ten-minute rule Bills. There are other routes to getting private Members’ Bills on the statute book.

Adjournment (November and Christmas): Business of the House (Private Members’ Bills) (17 Jul 2017)

Angela Smith: The hon. Gentleman is being generous in giving way. If I recall correctly, there was a motion in the 2010-12 Parliament to extend the number of private Members’ Bill days on the basis of the Session being extra long. I cannot recall him calling for an extra ballot when that motion was passed.

Bill Presented: Scheduling of Parliamentary Business (17 Jul 2017)

Angela Smith: First, I want to pay tribute to the two Members who have made their maiden speeches this evening. I agree with the strong comments of the new hon. Member for Angus (Kirstene Hair) about the need to keep the UK together. My hon. Friend the Member for Battersea (Marsha De Cordova) made a moving speech, telling us how she and her mother shared a determination to make sure that she had access...

Bill Presented: Scheduling of Parliamentary Business (17 Jul 2017)

Angela Smith: That point has already been made this evening, but the point is that we are not getting the space necessary for us to raise those important topics.

Bill Presented: Scheduling of Parliamentary Business (17 Jul 2017)

Angela Smith: Fortunately, the intervention of the hon. Member for North East Somerset (Mr Rees-Mogg) feeds directly into my next comment. Opposition days, Backbench Business Committee days and private Member’s Bill days on sitting Fridays are all very important and are the key means in this House of raising issues of concern to our voters. That precisely answers the hon. Gentleman’s point....
