Sheryll Murray: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what steps his Department is taking to support healthy ageing.
Sheryll Murray: Will my right hon. Friend confirm that new primary legislation announced today will give authorities such as Cornwall Council the power they need to protect communities such as Tideford and Gunnislake in my constituency from air pollution?
Sheryll Murray: Can the Minister explain to me how this new unit will prevent my constituent, Dennis Hutchings, from being prosecuted, because I do not think that it will?
Sheryll Murray: I will start by reading a message from another of my constituents, a Mr Dennis Blagdon. He wrote to me this weekend: “I feel ashamed to be British that the government would let this serious lack of justice happen” to Dennis Hutchings. Mr Blagdon continued: “He is a man who is ill, who is being hounded for a job which he was employed by the government at the time to do. It...
Sheryll Murray: My hon. Friend is quite right. I will not take much time to repeat what has already been said, but the Department of Justice in Northern Ireland was originally formed from the Northern Ireland Office and the Ministry of Justice. We do not have an Executive in Northern Ireland at the moment. I am calling on the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland to address this immediately by announcing...
Sheryll Murray: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what assessment he has made of the importance of general aviation to the UK's national infrastructure; and if he will make a statement.
Sheryll Murray: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what steps his Department is taking to roll out GPS technology at aerodromes to enable safer take-offs and landings for general aviation aircraft.
Sheryll Murray: What steps the CPS is taking to increase the rate of prosecution for crimes against older people.
Sheryll Murray: It is Cornwall, not Somerset.
Sheryll Murray: On Monday, Michel Barnier laid bare for all to see what staying in the customs union would mean for the UK: effectively staying in the EU. In his speech he mentioned the need for state aid rules, and that would probably mean no bailing out of the steel industry or any other industry that needs it in future. I remind hon. Members of the situation of a Shetland leasing and processing company...
Sheryll Murray: I will not give way because other Members wish to speak. I am really sorry. The worst of all possible scenarios would be one in which we had to abide by and be ruled by the European Union, but without any say. I wonder how long it will be before we start hearing suggestions about EU access to our fishing grounds—my fishermen—to pay for trade. How long will it be before we hear...
Sheryll Murray: The seafood sector, particularly regarding supply, is very important, and there are great opportunities post-Brexit. Under international law, we only need to offer any supplies that the UK fleet cannot catch. Will the Minister confirm that that will be the case once we leave the common fisheries policy?
Sheryll Murray: Is my right hon. Friend surprised as I am that an Israeli Labour MP told me in Israel last week that the leader of her party has written and dissociated herself with the Leader of the Opposition—not the Labour party, but the Leader of the Opposition?
Sheryll Murray: What steps the Government is taking to support the growth of the agri-tech sector.
Sheryll Murray: Can my hon. Friend assure me that protected status for Cornish produce such as the Cornish pasty will not be compromised post-Brexit?
Sheryll Murray: With regard to mixed fisheries, if we did have an effort regime, would it have the flexibility to compensate fisherman by allowing them to land the bass catches, for example, that they find in their nets?
Sheryll Murray: Could the hon. Lady clarify what the Labour party’s position is? Has she just read out the Labour party’s position? Is it what the PECH Committee has said?
Sheryll Murray: I will try to be as brief as my hon. Friend the Member for Banff and Buchan (David Duguid), Mr Paisley. As I have said, any management system must have buy-in from the industry and must also be flexible enough to allow for massive fluctuations in stocks, such as the massive fluctuation in the bass stocks that we saw in the south-west this year. At the end of the day, fishermen cannot tell...
Sheryll Murray: As I understand it, we are leaving the London convention of 1964 as well. Will the Minister confirm today that, even with an implementation period, we shall leave the common fisheries policy on 29 March 2019, and that access to resources will not be sacrificed to buy access to the market?
Sheryll Murray: Does my hon. Friend agree that any future fisheries policy must have buy-in from experts who work in the industry? Even I would not dictate to fishermen how the stocks should be managed. The fishermen themselves know best, and they should have input into a management system.
