Angela Smith: Will the Minister give way?

Forestry in England — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (11 Jan 2018)

Angela Smith: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Tiverton and Honiton (Neil Parish), who chairs the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee in a very skilled, constructive and inclusive manner. I start by declaring an interest. I am a member of the Woodland Trust and the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, which the Chairman of our...

Trade Bill (9 Jan 2018)

Angela Smith: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Trade Bill (9 Jan 2018)

Angela Smith: I thank my hon. Friend. His earlier comments about the UK being unable to remain a member of the customs union after leaving the European Union are surely incorrect. Surely it would be possible for the UK to negotiate fresh membership of the customs union, in the same way that Turkey has done. Equally, surely it would be possible to negotiate membership of the single market on departure, in...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill (8 Jan 2018)

Angela Smith: It is pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent South (Jack Brereton) and, preceding him, my hon. Friend the Member for Aberavon (Stephen Kinnock), both of whom represent industries that are also very important to my constituency—steel and ceramics. I join them in pursuing a robust trade remedies mechanism, and in agreeing particularly with my hon. Friend that there is...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill (8 Jan 2018)

Angela Smith: Does my hon. Friend agree with me and many Labour Members that the programme motion needs to be more detailed and needs to make it clear that we will have proper scrutiny in Committee, with more sittings than currently appear to be on offer from the Government?

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill (8 Jan 2018)

Angela Smith: I feel that it is very necessary to ask this question, given that a majority of Labour Members are in favour of staying in the customs union: can our Front-Bench team confirm whether or not they are in favour of staying in the customs union?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Angela Smith: I wish to speak briefly, as chair of the all-party group on the chemical industries, to new clause 61, tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for Wakefield (Mary Creagh). I am not going to rehearse the arguments that she has already made; she gave an incredibly strong account of why we should stay within REACH. It suffices only to say that the chemicals industry does not want to see any drop in...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Angela Smith: The right hon. and learned Member for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke) and my hon. Friend the Member for Nottingham East said that Ireland raised the point about the customs union and the hard border. That is why it is relevant to this clause. It is about trade between those two countries—the UK and the Republic. The point is that it is also about avoiding the hard border in relation to our...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Angela Smith: Will my hon. Friend give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Angela Smith: My hon. Friend is being generous in giving way again. This morning, the Secretary of State further entrenched his position, which will make it very difficult to complete a US trade deal involving food and food products. The other evidence that we have received in the Select Committee has indicated, week after week, that many parts of the agricultural sector believe that the UK Government over...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Angela Smith: May I turn my hon. Friend’s attention to Ireland? Freight traffic to Dublin has enjoyed a growth rate of 700% since the establishment of the single market, but the control zone of the terminal is no bigger than it was in the 1980s, thanks to the fact that it has enjoyed the dismantling of customs control and port health control. Is he aware of any preparations or investment to deal with...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Plain English summary of retained direct EU legislation (20 Dec 2017)

Angela Smith: I draw my hon. Friend’s attention to the National Audit Office report, published yesterday, on the Brexit work of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. It is already clear that the Department is under pressure, and it is making significant use of external consultants. With no promise of finances, much of the work programmed for Brexit is at risk. Does he agree that...

Blue Belt Programme: Marine Protected Areas (19 Dec 2017)

Angela Smith: The information that we have on krill stocks is that the quota given is 130% above the scientifically advised level. Surely there is no real case to make for the displacement of fisheries.

Blue Belt Programme: Marine Protected Areas (19 Dec 2017)

Angela Smith: It is clear that the hon. Gentleman feels passionately about this issue, but the campaign that he refers to for the South Sandwich Islands has made it clear that a scientifically credible stock assessment is not incompatible with a fully protected reserve. Does he agree, therefore, that there is an opportunity to retain a small scientifically robust stock assessment alongside the full...
