Agriculture (23 Apr 1987)

Miss Joan Maynard: British agriculture faces its present problems because of our membership of the Common Market. The interests of the British people, including farmers, have been sold to unaccountable, predatory multinationals. I am sorry that the hon. Member for Torridge and Devon, West (Sir P. Mills) has left the Chamber. He accused the Labour party of making promises that we could not deliver. That is...

Further, does the right hon. Lady agree that the surpluses in western Europe are not created by our agriculture? Why should our farm workers and farmers therefore be made redundant? Is it not high time that we moved as...

Alternative Land Use (9 Feb 1987)

Miss Joan Maynard: Will not taking controls off all agricultural land except grade 1 mean more intensive farming of the land that is still left in agriculture, and more damage to the environment? What proposals does the Minister have to deal with such problems as the pollution of our water by nitrates? Should he not be encouraging less intensive chemical farming and more low input, environmentally sound and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Milk Quotas (22 Jan 1987)

Miss Joan Maynard: Does the Minister agree that not only dairy farmers but dairy workers on the farm suffer from milk quotas? Does he accept that, in 1984–85, there was a threefold decrease in the full-time labour force in the counties with the highest milk production compared with previous years?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (15 Jan 1987)

Miss Joan Maynard: Does the Prime Minister agree that it is a scandal that, 15 months after her Government promised to review the case of the six men convicted of the Birmingham pub bombings, the Home Office still prevaricates?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Council of Agriculture Ministers (4 Dec 1986)

Miss Joan Maynard: Will the Minister make it his priority to ensure that the Government stop breaching the European social charter in relation to farm workers' pay, as two in five farm workers are paid wages below the decency threshold as detailed in the European charter? This is at a time when Lloyds bank has forecast a 50 per cent. increase in farmers' profits this year and when even the National Farmers...

Pesticides (16 Jul 1986)

Miss Joan Maynard: The regulations, which are being laid before Parliament in accordance with the Food and Environment Protection Act 1985, do not even address all the issues identified in the consultative document.

Miss Joan Maynard: In view of the Government's response to the report on community care by the Select Committee on Social Services and their clear reluctance to extend the invalid care allowance to married women, what plans do the Government have to respond to the expected response of the European Court that exclusion of married women of working age would breach a European directive on equal rights in social...
