Agriculture (15 Feb 1988)

Mr Geraint Howells: It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Norfolk, North (Mr. Howell). I agree wih many of the points that he made—and, just for information, may I say that we are not related. If we were in charge of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, there would be many wealthy farmers on the east coast and the hills of Wales. I am proud to be a dedicated European, like many...

Agriculture (15 Feb 1988)

Mr Geraint Howells: I agree with the Minister on this occasion—we do agree now and again. The British Poultry Federation has pointed out that this scheme could alter the structure of its industry, and it is dependent upon the cereals sector. Marginal land will be taken out of production and in some regions the poultry sector will suffer the consequences. There are millions of sheep in Wales, particularly in...

Farm Land and Rural Development Bill [Lords] (1 Feb 1988)

Mr Geraint Howells: I have waited nearly 15 years for the opportunity to debate tree planting. It has been a tradition in our family from my great grandfather down to myself to plant thousands of trees annually. I shall say a few words from my experience of tree planting in the less-favoured areas in the mountains of Wales. To help the Minister and perhaps the right hon. Member for Chesterfield (Mr. Benn) on...

Welsh Development Agency Bill (28 Jan 1988)

Mr Geraint Howells: From my experience in the House—and I have been here a few years — I hold the view that each Secretary of State for Wales in turn deserves credit now and again for what he does for his country. Tonight I take the view that the present Secretary of State deserves to be congratulated on his efforts in fighting for his corner of Wales. It would be very churlish indeed of me and of others if...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Advance Factories (18 Jan 1988)

Clause 2: Food Protection (25 Nov 1987)

Mr Geraint Howells: Last week we were privileged to debate the Scottish and Welsh orders. I was not surprised when hon. Members on both sides of the House united to support the Government and the orders. We are duty bound tonight —with respect to the hon. Member for South Shields (Dr. Clark)—to support the Government. It is a very serious problem. I am a small hill farmer and have lived in Wales all my...

Common Agricultural Policy (24 Nov 1987)

Mr Geraint Howells: We are well aware that the young Minister is sincere in his deliberations. He is convincing at times and very persuasive in his approach. I thank him for coming back from Brussels to open this debate and, I hope, to make the winding-up speech. I hope that he will be enlightened by the comments of hon. Members and I wish him the best in his negotiations on his arrival back in Brussels. I am...
