Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Environmental Standards Regulations (20 Apr 2017)

Paul Monaghan: On 24 November 2015, the then Under-Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the hon. Member for Penrith and The Border (Rory Stewart), announced that the UK Government would ban lion trophy imports by the end of 2017. What progress has been made in that regard, and what reductions in trophy lion hunting does the Minister expect to be made following the review of...

Paul Monaghan: What assessment has the Minister made of Scotland’s contribution to the EU single market?

Finance (No. 2) Bill (18 Apr 2017)

Paul Monaghan: In that context, how does the hon. Gentleman explain a national debt of close to £2 trillion?

Animal Welfare (30 Mar 2017)

Paul Monaghan: The inquiry we are debating was conducted by a Sub-Committee of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee, and I was very pleased to participate as a member of it. We ordered our detailed report to be published on 2 November 2016, following scrutiny of 256 items of published evidence, seven evidence-gathering sessions and three site visits. I am very grateful to a number of...

Badger Culling — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (27 Mar 2017)

Paul Monaghan: The Minister has accurately noted some of the initiatives he mentioned at the conclusion of his speech in September 2016. Can he tell us what impact those measures have had? What action has he taken to address other issues, such as slurry spreading on fields and feeding infected cattle to hounds and perhaps other animals?

Badger Culling — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (27 Mar 2017)

Paul Monaghan: I am grateful to the Minister for being so generous with his time. He has given various examples that suggest that culling badgers has been successful in reducing the incidence of bovine TB. Can he tell us the full range of variables that were tracked and monitored in each of those experimental cases? How do we know that the assertion that badgers were responsible for the infection rate is...

Badger Culling — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (27 Mar 2017)

Paul Monaghan: I congratulate the hon. Member for Newport West (Paul Flynn) on opening this debate with an excellent speech. We last debated badger culling on 7 September 2016, in a debate that I led in this Chamber. Today, we are debating e-petition 165672, which calls for an end to badger culling, rather than an extension of culls to new areas. Ending the badger culls is an eminently sensible and...

Badger Culling — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (27 Mar 2017)

Paul Monaghan: I absolutely agree, particularly in relation to the evident risks of the spread of infection if appropriate cattle movement control and biosecurity measures are not implemented. That is why the Scottish National party is participating in this debate, even though it relates primarily to England and to the impact of bovine TB on England’s farmers. We should be in no doubt that bovine TB...

Badger Culling — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (27 Mar 2017)

Paul Monaghan: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Badger Culling — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (27 Mar 2017)

Paul Monaghan: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way. He is highlighting some alleged facts in relation to the engagement that badgers have with cattle. I would like to suggest that there is absolutely no evidence to substantiate that view whatsoever.

Badger Culling — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (27 Mar 2017)

Paul Monaghan: Will the hon. Gentleman be kind enough to cite the source of the evidence he just supported?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Low-carbon Economy (14 Mar 2017)

Paul Monaghan: What steps he is taking to support the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Low-carbon Economy (14 Mar 2017)

Paul Monaghan: Given that Scotland’s renewable energy will be cheaper than that produced at Hinkley by the time it is complete and that Brexit is already pushing up the build costs of these reactors in an environment where the UK Government have unilaterally decided to abandon the protection of Euratom, will you scrap the costly and inefficient nuclear obsession in favour of a low-carbon future?

Future Flood Prevention (27 Feb 2017)

Paul Monaghan: This debate follows major inquiries into the social, economic and environmental impact of flooding in England which were undertaken by the Environmental Audit and Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committees. I participated in the EFRA Committee’s inquiry, and I took a close interest in the development of the Committee’s conclusions and the preparation of the final...

Occupied Palestinian Territories: Israeli Settlements (9 Feb 2017)

Paul Monaghan: Does my hon. Friend agree there is an enormous power imbalance between Israel, a state with the fourth-largest and strongest army in the world, and Palestine, which is not a state and does not have an army? Palestinians have already conceded 78% of their land. International pressure is needed now. Ignoring UN resolution 2334 is not the way forward.

Occupied Palestinian Territories: Israeli Settlements (9 Feb 2017)

Paul Monaghan: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that, given that the settlements in the west bank are illegal, there will be no peace unless Israel starts to recognise and adhere to international law?

Occupied Palestinian Territories: Israeli Settlements (9 Feb 2017)

Paul Monaghan: rose—

Domestic Ivory Market — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (6 Feb 2017)

Paul Monaghan: I am grateful for this opportunity to debate the crucial issue of protecting our planet’s wildlife. As we have heard, the magnificent African elephant is at grave and immediate risk from slaughter by poachers for its ivory tusks. I suspect that many people watching this debate at home, including my constituents, will be wondering why we are debating the plight of elephants again today....

Domestic Ivory Market — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (6 Feb 2017)

Paul Monaghan: If the hon. Lady is so enthusiastic about placing a value on everything, can she tell us the value of an elephant?
