Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Office for Environmental Protection (31 Oct 2019)

Angela Smith: The concept of the OEP has been touted by the Government as an independent watchdog, yet it will be funded by the Government and its chair will be appointed by the Government.

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (22 Oct 2019)

Angela Smith: I concur entirely with the right hon. Gentleman’s aspiration for Britain to continue to lead internationally on key issues such as climate change, but does he not agree that Britain’s role internationally will be diminished if it is no longer a member of the EU? Britain has played a leading role on these issues within the EU and internationally partly because it has been a member of the...

Preparations for Leaving the EU (8 Oct 2019)

Angela Smith: The document makes it clear that environmental standards will be not only maintained but enhanced. Yesterday, a leaked DEFRA paper, written by civil servants, said that the Department for International Trade would push DEFRA to lower UK standards governing animal welfare and pesticide residues.
