Animal Health Bill (25 Jul 2002)

Lord Plumb: moved Amendment No. 47: Page 16, line 18, leave out "brought" and insert "notified to the appeal court"

Animal Health Bill (25 Jul 2002)

Lord Plumb: The purpose of the amendment is to try to ensure that applicants fully understand the procedure and that the procedures adopted are not ruled out of time because of postal delays—which we have been discussing. Anyone who has been told that it has taken three to four weeks to open the mail in a government office will know to what I refer. Getting a letter to the hills is, equally, often a...

Animal Health Bill (25 Jul 2002)

Lord Plumb: I have no quarrel with the Minister's response. It brought out some extremely useful points and it led to a discussion of the cloning issue and of Dolly. That is an added dimension but it helps the debate. I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Animal Health Bill (25 Jul 2002)

Lord Plumb: moved Amendment No. 33: Page 15, line 28, leave out "allowing the sheep to be used for breeding" and insert "banning breeding from the sheep"

Animal Health Bill (25 Jul 2002)

Lord Plumb: This amendment recognises the different emphasis between subsections (2) and (3). The latter implies that breeding that is unjustified would be the verdict in a minority of cases. On the other hand, subsection (2) refers to "exceptional circumstances" in which sheep would be allowed to breed. I hope the Minister recognises from our earlier debates that we are moving towards scrapie-free...

Animal Health Bill (25 Jul 2002)

Lord Plumb: I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Farrington, for her expert knowledge and information on this matter, as well as her response to the first-class question put to her by the noble Lord, Lord Carter. However, the noble Countess, Lady Mar, put the point clearly when she pointed out that the bolus is implanted in the stomach. That is good enough for me. Nevertheless, it is clear that a technique...

Animal Health Bill (25 Jul 2002)

Lord Plumb: moved Amendment No. 21: Page 15, line 12, at end insert "provided that the device can be administered or attached without causing pain to the animal and without any danger of its becoming detached other than by deliberate removal"

Animal Health Bill (25 Jul 2002)

Lord Plumb: The age of electronic identification can mean many things. The method is more difficult to apply to sheep than to other animals. The identification is implanted in the form of a bolus. That is the only way at present that we can achieve electronic identification. However, the Bill has to guard against the cheapest form of identification and must openly consider, therefore, the animal's...

Animal Health Bill (25 Jul 2002)

Lord Plumb: I thank the Minister for his response. Although Amendment No. 14 is precise, the Chief Veterinary Officer and the president of the British Veterinary Association have ultimate responsibility. They have their experts in the field who they can contact. However, the Minister has been helpful in his response. Therefore, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Animal Health Bill (25 Jul 2002)

Lord Plumb: moved Amendment No. 12: Page 14, line 37, leave out ", in his opinion,"

Animal Health Bill (25 Jul 2002)

Lord Plumb: I rise to move Amendment No. 12 on behalf of my noble friends Lady Byford and the Duke of Montrose. I declare an interest as a livestock farmer and as president of the much-quoted National Sheep Association, which came in for both support and attack during the course of the afternoon. There were moments when I wished that I was on the Back Benches for a little while. However, we were reminded...

Livestock Industry (17 Apr 2002)

Lord Plumb: My Lords, I thank everyone for their contribution to the debate, which has been excellent. It is also a continuing debate. I particularly thank the noble Lord, Lord Carlile, and the noble Baroness, Lady Byford, for their replies. I also thank the Minister for his reply. I beg leave to withdraw the Motion for Papers.

Livestock Industry (17 Apr 2002)

Lord Plumb: rose to call attention to the state of the livestock industry; and to move for Papers. My Lords, I welcome this opportunity to call attention to the state of the livestock industry. I declare my interest as a livestock farmer and stock breeder for many years of my life. In more recent years, my involvement has been in the food and agricultural trade, both in Europe and throughout the world....

Livestock Industry (17 Apr 2002)

Lord Plumb: My Lords, I thank the noble Countess and I shall come to a conclusion. However, I wanted to deal with those particular figures, which are of considerable importance. The 108,000 tonnes of meat which came into this country during the foot and mouth disease outbreak is of considerable concern to all of us. We shall have to rely on the benefit of the links between the various organisations, and...

Animal Health Bill (26 Mar 2002)

Lord Plumb: My Lords, I do not speak because of the kind compliments paid by my noble friend Lord Jopling. He referred to earlier days. It is amazing how much one can remember of what took place 34 years ago. How many lessons we have learned during that time is debatable. There are plenty of lessons to be learned from the outbreak of last year. The noble Baroness, Lady Hayman, reminded us of the...

Hunting with Dogs: Ban (19 Mar 2002)

Lord Plumb: My Lords, in the past few days, many people have told me that they think it is positively obscene—yesterday, my daughter telephoned me and said precisely the same—that we are spending seven hours debating this issue today when we are surrounded by so many problems that should be debated. I am sure that the Minister will agree that he could be spending his time a little better than sitting...

Food and Nutrition (30 Jan 2002)

Lord Plumb: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Taverne, reminds me of the motto of the Royal Agricultural Society of England: "Practice with Science". We have just heard a formidable statement on the science relating to food. I shall attempt to add a little practice—which I do with my farming interests. First, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, for providing this opportunity. It is appropriate...

Higher Education: Funding (21 Jan 2002)

Lord Plumb: My Lords—

Animal Health Bill (14 Jan 2002)

Lord Plumb: My Lords, as the 22nd speaker in the debate I could just say that I support many of the comments that have been made, many of the strong opinions that have been expressed in reference to the so-called "reform" of the Animal Health Act 1981 and those who have expressed their concern that the Government seem to be pushing ahead in indecent haste. Although the Minister is not present, I know...

Countryside and Tourism (17 Oct 2001)

Lord Plumb: My Lords, it is a pleasure to speak after the right reverend Prelate and to listen to the maiden speech of the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Peterborough. I thank my noble friend Lord Inglewood for initiating the debate and I thank those who have spoken for their broadmindedness in looking at the whole situation while we await the report of the Rural Task Force. Obviously the full...
