Common Agricultural Policy (24 Nov 1987)

Mr Geraint Howells: I take heed of what the hon. Member for Holland with Boston (Sir R. Body) says. I know that he is an anti-Community man, but I admire the way in which he advances his point of view, and I respect what he has just said. The Prime Minister is selling Britain's farming short when she attacks agricultural expenditure in the way she does. Her insistence on seeing a restriction placed on farm...

Common Agricultural Policy (24 Nov 1987)

Mr Geraint Howells: The hon. Member for Southend, East (Mr. Taylor) will have to wait for only a few months to find out what the cuts are. I hope that the set-aside scheme mentioned by the Minister will be sucessful. I wish him well in his negotiations. The only two ways in which we can improve matters, apart from marketing, are to pay farmers for what they produce or to pay them for not producing. The set-aside...

Common Agricultural Policy (24 Nov 1987)

Orders of the Day — Food Protection (16 Nov 1987)

Mr Geraint Howells: It gives me great pleasure to support the orders. We are duty bound to support all our constituents and all the people in various parts of Britain who are facing this problem. I will not pursue what has been said by other Opposition Members. I believe that the hon. Member for Caernarfon (Mr. Wigley) has said it all. Many of his constituents are involved. He knows all about it and he knows...

Orders of the Day — Food Aid (9 Nov 1987)

Mr Geraint Howells: I differ in my approach from that of other hon. Members who have spoken. Many people in my constituency and in Wales generally were proud when they were given extra food at the beginning of the new year. That was welcomed by many of the needy and the elderly. However, I should like to express a cautious welcome to the European Community document that we are considering. It is an excellent...

Licensing (Northern Ireland) (14 Jul 1987)

Mr Geraint Howells: Perhaps the hon. Gentleman is not aware that the licensing laws in Wales are different from those in other parts of the United Kingdom. The people of Northern Ireland should have the right to decide for themselves; it should not be done through an order tabled in the House. Perhaps the hon. Gentleman is unaware that, for the past 30 years in Wales, we have had the right to vote every seven...

Orders of the Day — British Sugar Beet Quota (13 Jul 1987)

Mr Geraint Howells: As far as I am aware, there are no sugar beet growers in Wales—although there may be a few. Many of us who farm in the Principality, however, are dependent on sugar beet to feed our sheep in the winter. It has proved a very successful method of feeding them during the hard months that we get on the hills. My purpose in taking part in tonight's debate is to support the hon. Member for...

Agriculture Council (1 Jul 1987)

Mr Geraint Howells: May I first congratulate the right hon. Gentleman on taking over this very high office of looking after British agriculture and consumers? I wish him well in his deliberations, and may he be blessed with good health. I pay tribute also to the right hon. Member for Westmorland and Lonsdale (Mr. Jopling), who has retired from that office, for services rendered to British agriculture. By...

Orders of the Day — University College of Wales, Aberystwyth (30 Apr 1987)

Mr Geraint Howells: I am delighted that I have been given the opportunity to debate the future role of the University college of Wales, Aberystwyth. The college has a special place in the hearts of the Welsh people as it was the first college of the university of Wales to be established, in Aberystwyth. The institution was built through the efforts of many dedicated men and women and by the scarce pennies that...

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons: Dairy Industry (27 Apr 1987)

Mr Geraint Howells: I am sure that the Minister would be the first to admit that many dairy farmers in west Wales face financial problems, which many will find it difficult to overcome. To whom does the Secretary of State attribute blame? Is it the Government of the day, the EEC, his colleague the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, or himself?

Agriculture (23 Apr 1987)
