Rural Communities: Prince's Countryside Fund — Debate ( 7 Oct 2010)

Lord Kimball: My Lords, I must declare an interest as deputy president of the Countryside Alliance. As Prince Charles has said, the countryside is a delicately woven tapestry: start pulling out the threads and the whole will unravel very rapidly. In the Yorkshire Dales, the Cumbrian Fells and the hills of Scotland and Wales, most farmers last year made an average loss of £3,000. Farmers and farm workers...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Treasure Act ( 4 Dec 2007)

Lord Kimball: asked Her Majesty's Government: What will be the impact on (a) the voluntary recording of archaeological finds by the Portable Antiquities Scheme, and (b) the operation of the Treasure Act 1996 if the scheme's budget is reduced to the same extent that the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council's budget is being cut.

Climate Change Bill [HL] (27 Nov 2007)

Lord Kimball: My Lords, I declare an interest in that I am the deputy chairman of the Countryside Alliance, which has been carrying out a major exercise on fly-tipping, an important part of the Bill. I agree with my noble friend Lady Byford that this all seems a bit far away from our point of view. Carbon emissions should be reduced by 2050 to 60 per cent below those of 1990. It is of very little interest...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Fishing: Drift Nets (14 Mar 2007)

Lord Kimball: asked Her Majesty's Government: Why they have allowed drift-net fishing off Strathy Point to continue.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Fishing: Drift Nets (13 Mar 2007)

Lord Kimball: asked Her Majesty's Government: What arrangements are being made to ensure that, after the expenditure of the European Union fund of £25 million for compensation, the International Council for the Exploration of the Seas and the Irish Salmon Review Group have stopped the Irish drift-net fishery at the start of the present salmon season.

Animal Welfare Bill (23 Oct 2006)

Lord Kimball: My Lords, I am particularly interested in subsection (2)(c) of my noble friend's amendment, on the, "identification of greyhounds employed for racing purposes". One reason why I was eased out from running the Greyhound Racing Fund was that I wanted to be absolutely certain that the dogs could be properly identified. At the moment, dogs are identified only by an earmarking scheme. I see from...

Animal Welfare Bill (23 Oct 2006)

Lord Kimball: My Lords, I should declare an interest as the deputy president of the Countryside Alliance. I shall declare an interest also as the first chairman of the British Greyhound Racing Fund when we come to consider those matters. This amendment is quite unnecessary. Defra is already drawing up a code which covers the rearing of game birds. It will take advice from the Game Conservancy Trust. I have...

Local Government: County Councils (18 May 2006)

Lord Kimball: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they support the retention of county councils.

Local Government: County Councils (18 May 2006)

Lord Kimball: My Lords, I am quite certain that the noble Baroness is genuine in her reply, but could we see some positive action? Why go on spending £18 million on the unelected regional councils in eight areas? The money is used to override the county councils' planning decisions. The Government are taking powers away from the local people in all 34 counties and they will have to pay for it through...

Incapacity Benefit: Medical Examinations (20 Apr 2006)

Lord Kimball: asked Her Majesty's Government: What percentage of those who receive incapacity benefit have had a full face-to-face medical examination in the last full year for which figures are available.

Incapacity Benefit: Medical Examinations (20 Apr 2006)

Lord Kimball: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his Answer. It proves that the Department for Work and Pensions plus the Minister for Welfare Reform have not done a great deal over a period in which the Prime Minister himself said that there were 1 million people claiming incapacity benefit who wanted to work. The situation will not be made any easier for the Government with a backdrop of a slowing...

Squirrels (23 Mar 2006)

Lord Kimball: My Lords, we are all grateful to the noble Earl, Lord Peel, because this debate has come just in time. Unless something is done now, we are going to lose the red squirrel completely. I think it was 86 years ago that Thorburn's classic work on the mammals of Great Britain was able to describe the red squirrel as "the Common Squirrel", going on to say that it was very plentiful. At the same...

Police: Female Officers (23 Mar 2006)

Lord Kimball: asked Her Majesty's Government: How many female officers resign from the police force each year.

Police: Female Officers (23 Mar 2006)

Lord Kimball: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that reply. Without being slightly churlish, however, I feel that it lacks a certain sympathy. All the speculation about amalgamation is unsettling for lady officers. They play a vital part in the work of the force, and it is time that the question of amalgamation was laid to rest so that they can get on with the business of arresting criminals.

Stilton Cheese ( 2 Mar 2006)

Lord Kimball: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether the Food Standards Agency supports the manufacture of Stilton cheese in the traditional manner; and whether the agency plans to require a reduction in the salt level in this cheese.

Stilton Cheese ( 2 Mar 2006)

Lord Kimball: My Lords, I must declare an interest. I am chairman of the Melton museum. One third of our exhibition deals with Stilton cheese. Does the Minister realise that deep offence is felt throughout the Vale of Belvoir at the Food Standards Agency's investigation of the level of salt in Stilton cheese, which is an age-old recipe, when it should be dealing with the amount of salt and fat in junk...

Moles ( 2 Feb 2006)

Lord Kimball: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they will seek derogation of the appropriate European directive to permit the use of strychnine for the control of moles after 6 September 2006.

Moles ( 2 Feb 2006)

Lord Kimball: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that reply, but it is not really good enough. There is an explosion of moles throughout England. On 6 September, licensed pest controllers could use only Phostoxin. It costs six times as much and is 10 times less efficient than worms dressed with strychnine. I hope that the derogation will continue.

Supply of Relevant Veterinary Medicinal Products Order 2005 (18 Nov 2005)

Lord Kimball: My Lords, I can add very little to what has been said by my noble friend Lord Soulsby. We have a difficult situation in treating animals. I am thinking particularly of horses. The charge a veterinary surgeon can make will often depend on the fact that some of the charge can be recovered in the prescription he writes. We do not want to reduce the number of calls a veterinary surgeon may make....

Veterinary Surgery (Testing for Tuberculosis in Bovines) Order 2005 (18 Nov 2005)

Lord Kimball: My Lords, I declare an interest. I am an honorary member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons after serving for nine years as a Privy Council Representative at the Royal College as a Member of another place. For 10 years, I was chairman of the University of Cambridge Veterinary School Trust when my noble friend Lord Soulsby was dean of that school, and we raised sufficient money to...
