Insect Population - Question (19 Mar 2019)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, is my noble friend aware that oilseed rape suffered a loss of approximately 10% last year, owing to the cabbage stem flea beetle? It is forecast that these losses will be considerably greater this year, with the ever-increasing numbers of these insects, putting the viability of this crop into question. Oilseed rape is the most important arable rotational crop, producing edible...

Brexit: British Airlines - Question (5 Mar 2019)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, what will be the situation for UK private pilots, of which I am one—

Brexit: British Airlines - Question (5 Mar 2019)

Lord Rotherwick: I am flying here—who hold EASA licences in a no-deal Brexit scenario?

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Aviation: Planning (30 May 2018)

Lord Rotherwick: To ask Her Majesty's Government what consideration they have given to amending paragraph (z) of the table in Schedule 4 of the Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (England) Order 2015 to include aerodromes used for sport and recreational activities.

Housing and Planning Bill: Committee (8th Day) (22 Mar 2016)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I thank my noble friend the Minister for her comprehensive reply and her offer to talk further with the general aviation sector. I, of course, was hoping for something more—something that could be written into the Bill; perhaps I was rashly optimistic. I will take away her reply and contemplate it during the Easter Recess. I beg leave to withdraw my amendment. Amendment 92C...

Housing and Planning Bill: Committee (8th Day) (22 Mar 2016)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I thank my noble friend and her officials for the time they gave to address my concerns in a number of meetings. I will speak to Amendments 92C and 97B. First, I declare an interest as a private pilot. I am vice-president of the General Aviation Alliance and president of the General Aviation Awareness Council. I love flying and I seek to protect the ability of British people to take...

Aviation: Sustainable Fuel — Question (22 Mar 2016)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords—

Aviation: Sustainable Fuel — Question (22 Mar 2016)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, is my noble friend aware that producing sustainable fuels with high levels of ethanol is not the problem? General aviation has a problem with combustion engines which do not deal well with high levels of ethanol in the fuel, as the hoses, the filters and the seals are incompatible with these high levels.

Middle East - Question for Short Debate (23 Feb 2016)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I was fortunate to visit Israel last week, where the Israeli Government expressed to our group of Peers a wish for peace and economic prosperity for themselves and their neighbours. The Palestine Liberation Organization gave a somewhat different and muddled view. During the British mandate of 1920 to 1947, there was much unrest between the Palestinian Arabs and the Jews. Attacks...

Badgers — Private Notice Question (9 Oct 2013)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, does my noble friend recognise the vulnerability of deer in deer parks? Does he agree that they have to be looked at separately from the way that you look at cattle that succumb to TB? You cannot lock up deer from a deer park in a shed and humanely shoot them; they have to be slaughtered by high-powered rifles. What is my noble friend doing about the situation regarding the...

Airports: Heathrow — Question (13 Feb 2013)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, although people are saying that Heathrow is full up, nearly saturated or working at 98% capacity, is it not true that that in reality is in good weather? During bad weather when the time between landings is extended significantly, considerable delay is caused. It really is time that we should respond to this because it is totally detrimental to the UK that other nations should see...

Civil Aviation Bill — Report (7 Nov 2012)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, Amendments 63 and 64 address the third and final point of principle I wish to pursue with my noble friend the Minister. I regret the need to return to the House with concerns over Clause 102. My noble friend the Minister helpfully invited me and my advisers to the meeting he chaired with CAA and Department for Transport officials. We were able to voice the very deep concerns in the...

Civil Aviation Bill — Report (7 Nov 2012)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for his words and reiterate that I tabled these amendments owing to the uncertainty and concerns about Section 61 in Clause 102(3) that were caused in the GBA community. The Minister's remarks are helpful and I thank him for them and look forward to reading them in Hansard tomorrow. I beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 63 withdrawn. Amendment 64...

Civil Aviation Bill — Report (7 Nov 2012)

Lord Rotherwick: I apologise again for wrong-footing the Minister by decoupling this amendment. It obviously caused some confusion in his answer to this rather technical amendment. I will read Hansard carefully and hope that he will be sympathetic if I come back to him for a meeting on this at a later date. In the mean time, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 23 withdrawn. Clause 67 : Airports:...

Civil Aviation Bill — Report (7 Nov 2012)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, by decoupling my earlier amendments I appreciate that the Minister may have addressed, in part, some of the remarks I am about to make, through no fault of his own. This group of amendments addresses the second issue of principle and policy I wish to raise with the Minister; he will see that I made this point at an earlier stage in the Bill. It concerns the continued availability...

Civil Aviation Bill — Report (7 Nov 2012)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for fully addressing my amendments-obviously, nowhere near to my satisfaction. I also thank the noble Lord, Lord Davies, for his remarks and for recognising that I have taken this a "notch higher"-which would have been a better way for me to put it. I hope that my noble friend the Minister will consider addressing my concerns favourably in future legislation....

Civil Aviation Bill — Report (7 Nov 2012)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I shall speak also to Amendment 10 and to Amendment 11, which seeks to add a new clause after Clause 2. Together these three amendments cover the first point of principle that I wish to address at this stage of the Bill. I have given notice to the Government that I wish to decouple my Amendments 23, 26, 28 and 29, to which I intend to speak later. First, I again declare my interest...

Civil Aviation Bill — Report (7 Nov 2012)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I support the Minister in his amendments. Although one might be seduced into agreeing with the amendments of the noble Lord, Lord Davies, there is a balance to be found here. It is interesting to note what has happened when past Governments have overregulated, or put in place harsher regulation than their competitors. One has only to look to the agricultural sector to see what...

Armed Forces: Afghanistan — Question (23 Jan 2012)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, what is the situation regarding the Danish armour that is supporting our troops in Afghanistan at present?

Aviation — Question for Short Debate (13 Oct 2011)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I thank noble Lords who are to take part in this debate, and I declare that I am not only a private pilot but a director of the Light Aircraft Association, vice-president of the General Aviation Alliance, and president of the General Aviation Awareness Council, all of which are non-remunerated positions. In other words, I am deeply engaged with the lighter side of UK civil aviation...
