Lord Plumb: Or not move it, my Lords, in the knowledge—

Animal Health Bill (29 Oct 2002)

Lord Plumb: My Lords, I am happy to beg to move.

Animal Health Bill (29 Oct 2002)

Lord Plumb: My Lords, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Animal Health Bill (29 Oct 2002)

Lord Plumb: My Lords, I support Amendment No. 45, on the Veterinary Investigation Centre Network, and I should like to speak to my Amendment No. 47, on research. As the noble Lord, Lord Livsey, very clearly said, the amendments would simply prod the Government into making adequate arrangements to deal with future outbreaks. The noble Lord also provided some startling figures on the gradual reduction in...

Animal Health Bill (29 Oct 2002)

Lord Plumb: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that response, which, frankly, I do not believe adequately covered many of the points raised. I rather liked the point made by the noble Lord, Lord Livsey, reminding the Minister of his comments a week ago when he talked about marginal tidying-up. In my opinion, marginal tidying-up needs to be strengthened and not weakened. I fear that the amendment which we...

Animal Health Bill (29 Oct 2002)

Lord Plumb: moved, as an amendment to Amendment No. 42, Amendment No. 42A: Line 8, after "taken" insert "by government departments and agencies and other public bodies"

Animal Health Bill (29 Oct 2002)

Lord Plumb: My Lords, I thank the Minister for explaining his amendment. In moving this amendment I shall speak also to Amendment No. 43. I accept that many countries where foot and mouth has been and is endemic are getting it under control. The efficacy of the vaccine used in many South American countries and elsewhere is improving, but there is no room for complacency. The wording of the Minister's...

Animal Health Bill (22 Oct 2002)

Lord Plumb: moved Amendment No. 36: Page 8, line 11, at end insert "specified"

Animal Health Bill (22 Oct 2002)

Lord Plumb: My Lords, the Minister seems to be in a good mood at the moment and I hope that he will accept at least one of my amendments. If an inspector is going on to a farm to make tests or take samples, he is obviously going there for a purpose. When he arrives he will state that purpose—"I need to take blood samples from your cows" or, say, as we are looking at all diseases and not only one...

Animal Health Bill (22 Oct 2002)

Lord Plumb: My Lords, I am sad to hear that. I rather felt that the Minister was coming all the way with me, and I was doing my best to persuade him that this was an amendment that he could accept. However, he has made his position absolutely clear. Therefore, in the circumstances, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Animal Health Bill (22 Oct 2002)

Lord Plumb: moved Amendment No. 24: Page 5, leave out lines 6 and 7 and insert— "( ) In this section and sections 62B, 62C and 62D "premises" excludes dwelling houses and buildings being used for non-agricultural purposes."

Animal Health Bill (22 Oct 2002)

Lord Plumb: My Lords, Amendment No. 24 refers to the exclusion of dwelling houses and buildings being used for non-agricultural purposes. The amendment follows, in practical terms, many of the sentiments that were expressed in Amendment No. 20 proposed by the noble Lord, Lord Greaves, supported by the noble Baroness, Lady Mallalieu, as well as many of my noble friends on this side of the House, on...

Animal Health Bill (22 Oct 2002)

Lord Plumb: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his reply. He has dealt with only one aspect of the matter. It could well be that 50 people are in the one dwelling and all are involved in different businesses. It could well be that they are in different buildings or even sharing buildings. Therefore, it is not a question of animals being in the houses. It is a question of people being in the houses, an...

Animal Health Bill (22 Oct 2002)

Lord Plumb: My Lords, I welcome the requirement for an explanation of preventive slaughter in Amendment No. 8. This is related to everything that we have discussed today. An explanation of that policy is important because it makes it more transparent for those concerned with the problem. Subsection (2) obliges the Secretary of State first to publish his reasons for the exercise of his or her power to...

Animal Health Bill (8 Oct 2002)

Lord Plumb: moved Amendment No. 302: Page 8, leave out line 11.

Animal Health Bill (8 Oct 2002)

Lord Plumb: The next two or three amendments are related. Under new Section 28A, inserted by Clause 11, "A person commits an offence if . . . he knowingly does anything which causes . . . an animal to be infected with a disease". That is the gist of my concern on this amendment. It is a delicate situation. This sort of thing is rare, but it can happen. The Bill does not say, "if he knowingly causes...

Animal Health Bill (8 Oct 2002)

Lord Plumb: I thank the Minister for that response. In particular, I thank the noble Countess, Lady Mar, for her remarks. If she or anyone thought for one second that I was defending the indefensible—namely, people who may misbehave by disobeying the law and introduce this horrible disease into their own premises—perhaps I may disabuse them because there is nothing further from my mind. The reason...

Animal Health Bill (8 Oct 2002)

Lord Plumb: moved Amendment No. 256: Page 5, leave out lines 9 to 11.

Animal Health Bill (8 Oct 2002)

Lord Plumb: We have already discussed this issue at length. We have covered the amendment, but I would like to hear the Minister's response. I speak also to Amendments Nos. 259 and 261 with which it is grouped, although we spoke to Amendment No. 259 in the group with Amendment No. 231. I beg to move.

Animal Health Bill (8 Oct 2002)

Lord Plumb: I thank the Minister for his brief reply. My question was also brief, but we were so involved in this issue earlier. We also discussed it at considerable length when debating the scrapie Bill. Since we still have to consider a number of amendments this evening, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.
