Brexit: Farm Support - Question (6 Nov 2017)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, what discussions have the Government had with rural and indeed urban organisations to establish what services land managers can provide to others to best maximise the benefits of the countryside to the whole population, and while doing so to best maximise returns to farmers?

Agriculture, Fisheries and the Rural Environment - Motion to Take Note (2 Nov 2017)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, it is a very sad day when we have to bid farewell to the noble Lord, Lord Plumb. Our Henry is a national and international celebrity. If you go with him to Brussels, you get off the train and, 10 yards down the platform, the first person will say, “Bonjour, Monsieur le Président”. It goes on all day; every five minutes someone will come up and say “Bonjour, Monsieur le...

Transport: Remote Island Communities in England - Motion to Take Note (20 Jul 2017)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, I, too, thank the noble Lord, Lord Berkeley, for introducing this debate. I must first declare an interest as a frequent holiday visitor to Tresco in the Isles of Scilly, where our family often occupies a cottage during the first half of August—I am greatly looking forward to it in a couple of weeks’ time. I have also been known to visit Scilly in the winter when tourism is not...

International Development: Forestry - Question (21 Mar 2017)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: With DfID’s new and welcome emphasis on the promotion of agriculture as the bottom rung of our wider economic agenda, does the Minister agree that forestry and agri-forestry have a vital role to play in sustaining soils and encouraging the sustainable management of water and grazing, and that therefore forestry has a really important role to play in the wider economic agenda generally...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Report (3rd Day) (13 Mar 2017)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, there are a lot of reasons to support this amendment, quite apart from the general support that it receives in public opinion polls. There is the vital economic argument about the value added to our country and our universities, as numerous speakers have said. There is also the fact that our main competitors, as the noble Lord, Lord Bilimoria, has just emphasised—the United...

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Developing Countries: Agriculture (1 Feb 2017)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: To ask Her Majesty’s Government, with reference to the recent Bilateral Aid Review, how they intend to use UK aid to enable smallholder farmers to connect to local, regional and global markets.

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Developing Countries: Employment (1 Feb 2017)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: To ask Her Majesty’s Government, with reference to the 2015 Conceptual Framework on Agriculture and the recent Bilateral and Multilateral Aid Reviews, how they intend to use UK aid to facilitate transitions from subsistence agriculture to off-farm job opportunities in rural economies.

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (7th Day) (30 Jan 2017)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, I support Amendments 493, 494 and 495, to which I have added my name. I must declare interests as chair of the advisory board of CEH, a trustee at Rothamsted and chair of the strategic advisory board of the Government’s Global Food Security programme. As has been explained, these amendments are designed to broaden the vision of the purposes of the research to take place under the...

Neighbourhood Planning Bill - Second Reading (17 Jan 2017)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, first, I must declare an interest as a farmer and landowner. Everyone is agreed on the fact that we need more houses: the Government, opposition parties, local authorities, virtually every NGO in the country and, of course, anyone looking to get married or start a family. For decades we have not built enough homes in this country, and this has had devastating consequences for the...

Rural Bus Services - Question for Short Debate (24 Nov 2016)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, I, too, thank the right reverend Prelate for bringing this matter before the House. We can take as read the importance of public transport to the carless in the countryside—the poor, the old, the young, the disabled, and so on. Without public transport they cannot access work, food, doctors, medicines, education, training, banks, lawyers, accountants, cash machines or just...

Bus Services Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day) (24 Oct 2016)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, I am glad that the noble Baroness, Lady Randerson, mentioned the whole question of rural areas, as I support this amendment from a purely rural perspective. I apologise to the House that this is the first time I have spoken on this very important Bill. Unfortunately, on previous occasions, I have been unavoidably committed elsewhere, prior to the Bill’s scheduling by the Whips. I...

Genetically Modified Insects (S&T Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (7 Jun 2016)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, I also served on the committee that produced this report and thank the noble Earl, Lord Selbourne, for his wise chairmanship and the administrative team for their excellent support. My very short intervention will merely echo the main message of the report: namely, that in the fight against disease we need more tools in our toolbox, not fewer. Of course, by this stage in a debate it...

Housing and Planning Bill - Report (5th Day) (25 Apr 2016)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, I rise to support the second amendment in this group, Amendment 128YAR, on the duty of care where compulsory purchase powers are involved. I do so from personal experience. Some 25 or 30 years ago, I had the Ilminster bypass through my farm. It was part of the improvements to the A303, which I strongly supported. I still strongly support more improvements to the A303 and hope we...

Housing and Planning Bill - Report (5th Day) (25 Apr 2016)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, I support this amendment in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Royall, and others. The arguments have all been very well made, particularly by the noble Lord, Lord Best, with his great experience, so I want merely to emphasise a few facts. First, as we all know, the need for affordable homes is as great in the countryside as anywhere, because on average houses are more expensive...

Housing and Planning Bill - Report (2nd Day) (13 Apr 2016)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: I thank all Members of the House who have supported the amendment. I again thank the Minister and, indeed, her Secretary of State for the compromise position that they have offered. I look forward to discussing the details of the government amendment that will be provided at Third Reading. It is quite clear that the process in national parks, AONBs, the Norfolk Broads and other special areas...

Housing and Planning Bill - Report (2nd Day) (13 Apr 2016)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, once again, I am very pleased to report that I am aware that, after discussions, as the Minister has already hinted, the Government are minded to accept the case for the amendment, with a view to bringing forward their own at Third Reading, which I hope will go most of the way to catering for the problem that we are trying to resolve—we being me and the noble Lords, Lord Best and...

Housing and Planning Bill - Report (1st Day) (11 Apr 2016)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, I regret that during the Recess I failed to meet the DCLG ministerial team to discuss this and other rural amendments. The fault lies mostly with me because I was away in Rwanda for a lot of the time with a parliamentary group looking at agriculture. There was a certain amount of confusion over ministerial diaries early on as well. This morning I had meetings in Cornwall and was...

Housing and Planning Bill - Report (1st Day) (11 Apr 2016)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: If there are no other speakers—

Housing and Planning Bill - Report (1st Day) (11 Apr 2016)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: I thank noble Lords for their support and congratulations, if that is the right word. I, too, look forward to the detail and possibly to having future discussions with the Minister but in the mean time, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 11 withdrawn.

Housing and Planning Bill - Report (1st Day) (11 Apr 2016)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, I support Amendment 1. For the purposes of Report, I declare my interests as a farmer and landowner, as a rural landlord of domestic property, and as the ultimate landowner of an exception site leased to Hastoe Housing Association. I wish to make only one point—to re-emphasise what others have hinted at. We are all aware of the shortage of affordable housing in our country. We are...
