Forestry Commission — Debate (3 Mar 2011)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, I declare an interest as a farmer and woodland owner. It is clear that our woodlands are important to the people of the UK. In some areas, the timber they produce can be a vital part of the rural economy. The income forests provide from shooting is also important in some areas. Equally, as regards climate change, CO2 is locked up in timber, and if that timber goes into, say,...

Public Bodies Bill [HL]: Committee (3rd Day) (1 Dec 2010)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, I declare an interest as a farmer and as an employer of staff in the West Country-not the county of Dorset, like the noble Lord, Lord Whitty, but next door in the county of Somerset. I had not really intended to get involved in this debate-I thought I would just let it wash on and see what came out-but I think that I should report to your Lordships from the real world of Somerset....

Tourism: UK Economy — Question (9 Nov 2010)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, does the Minister agree that if tourism has a beneficial effect on the national economy, the £14 billion to £15 billion a year brought into the rural economy by tourism has proportionately an even more beneficial effect on rural communities and therefore deserves the special attention of the Government?

Written Answers — House of Lords: Water Supply: UN Convention (28 Jul 2010)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will ratify the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Non-navigational Uses of International Watercourses, which was co-sponsored by the United Kingdom in 1997; and, if so, when.

Rural Communities — Debate (15 Jul 2010)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, I must first declare an interest as a farmer and countryman. It is very easy to stand up and moan about the way in which the countryside is treated by government. There is, after all, a lot to moan about. First, there is the shortage of affordable homes. Families are being torn apart by the unaffordability of housing. Secondly, public services are more expensive to deliver and,...

Written Answers — House of Lords: G8 (15 Mar 2010)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: To ask Her Majesty's Government what additional funds they have or will commit to research over the next three years as part of the G8 $20 billion commitment for global food security which states "investment in and access to education, research, science and technologies should be substantially strengthened at national, regional and international level".

Flood and Water Management Bill: Second Reading (24 Feb 2010)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, I declare an interest as a farmer and landowner and a member of the CLA and NFU. These are quite modest interests compared with those of the noble Lord, Lord Taylor, but we on these Benches try our best. The Bill is relatively uncontroversial and is much needed to create certainty in an area in which the problems can get only worse in the decades to come. Furthermore, I believe that...

Agriculture: Royal Society Report — Debate (10 Dec 2009)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, I too, must declare an interest as a farmer, and a trustee of the Lawes Agricultural Trust at Rothamsted. I focus my remarks on the crucial agricultural research that that goes on in this country but which is for the benefit of farmers in the developing world, notably Africa. The UN believes that by 2030, one in every three births will be in Africa, and that by 2050, every other...

Queen's Speech — Debate (2nd Day) (19 Nov 2009)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, we are covering a wide-ranging agenda today and I want to speak about African agriculture. I sat on the APPG for food, agriculture and development, and chaired some of the sessions. We received evidence from a most eminent and international group of witnesses. I have spoken before in this House about world food security and I believe that the world as a whole will be able to feed...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Energy: Anaerobic Digestion (6 Nov 2009)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they intend to introduce targets for the number of anaerobic digestion plants to be built in the United Kingdom utilising agricultural and waste products.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Energy: Anaerobic Digestion (6 Nov 2009)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the promotion and building of more anaerobic digestion plants would affect the need for increased national gas storage capacity.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Energy: Anaerobic Digestion (2 Nov 2009)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to improve or facilitate connections to the gas and electricity grids to ensure the viability of anaerobic digestion plants and encourage their growth.

Unemployment — Question (20 Oct 2009)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, do the Government intend to give more support to rural youngsters to enable them to get to work? In other words, do they intend to put more money behind the Wheels to Work schemes, which currently woefully lack most central government support?

Common Fisheries Policy Report: Question for Short Debate (29 Jun 2009)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: My Lords, I, too, served on Sub-Committee D during this investigation. I do not know whether any of your Lordships have seen the film "The End of the Line", based on the book by Charles Clover, but, whatever one might think of each and every claim made therein, there is no denying the underlying message that we have too many fishing boats in the world, which with ever improving technology are...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (11th Day) (Continued) (21 Apr 2009)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: I support Amendment A362N, which concerns signs. Many of us, including from the government Front Bench, have spoken on Part 9 and the importance of involving locals in the implementation of coastal access. The involvement—and support, where possible—of local authorities, parishes, landowners and farmers will be crucial to the effective operation of the whole initiative. If a local...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (11th Day) (Continued) (21 Apr 2009)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: The noble Lord, Lord Greaves, will not be surprised to hear me express doubts about the amendment. Of course Natural England will be involved in any proposed development that is likely to affect the coastal route, but I refer to the comments that I made a moment ago about the natural enthusiasm of those involved, which will inevitably steer Natural England to go for the option contained in...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (11th Day) (Continued) (21 Apr 2009)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: I rise to support these amendments, particularly Amendment A357A. I consider an appeals system to be the key to successful implementation of the Bill. As I made clear in my previous interventions, I very much favour greater access to our countryside. It has enormous benefits for the mental and physical health of our nation. With one or two exceptions, which I touched on when discussing dogs,...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (11th Day) (21 Apr 2009)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: I rise to speak to Amendment A357B. I have already declared my interest for the Committee stage of this Bill but if I was asked to choose a theme that I felt I most represented in this House it would probably be a vibrant rural economy. It is for that reason that I am generally in favour of access to the countryside, which brings billions of pounds every year into the rural economy. This was...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (11th Day) (21 Apr 2009)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: The question of dogs is very important for the practical success of this part of the Bill. Leaving aside the vexed question of privacy, on the whole, responsible public access to land does not interfere with the normal practical use of that land. There are exceptions to that, the most obvious being where animals other than humans are involved; for example, where there is livestock such as...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (10th Day) (30 Mar 2009)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: As this is my first intervention on this Bill, I declare an interest as a farmer and landowner, and as a former chairman of the Countryside Agency, which I am sure most Members of the Committee will know has responsibilities under the CROW Act and for the management of existing long-distance trails, including the south-west coast path. When I was chairman, we also created trails. As such, I...
