Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Food Prices (7 Dec 2017)

Sue Hayman: The UK now has the second highest rates of food insecurity in Europe. In October, food and drink prices increased faster than at any other point over the last four years, and the latest Trussell Trust figures show a 13% increase on last year in the number of emergency food parcels issued. How will the Secretary of State and the Minister address the shameful increase in hunger and food poverty...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Food Prices (7 Dec 2017)

Sue Hayman: With all due respect, I do not think that that really answered my question. Yesterday the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union admitted that Ministers had carried out no proper assessment of the impact of Brexit on any UK economic sector. Food prices are rising. What assessment has DEFRA made of the impact of Brexit on those prices?

UK Bee Population (14 Nov 2017)

Sue Hayman: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I congratulate the hon. Member for Cheltenham (Alex Chalk) on initiating the debate, in which we have heard excellent contributions. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Rochdale (Tony Lloyd) for bringing his serious expertise to the debate; it is much appreciated. We have heard that scientific evidence about the harmful...

Puppy Smuggling (1 Nov 2017)

Sue Hayman: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Rosindell. This is a really important debate, and I congratulate the hon. Member for Mid Worcestershire (Nigel Huddleston) on securing it. We have had important contributions from Members on both sides of the Chamber. I would like to specifically congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Batley and Spen (Tracy Brabin) on Rocky winning...

Puppy Smuggling (1 Nov 2017)

Sue Hayman: That is an incredibly important point. One good thing about the Westminster dog of the year show was that there were dogs there for rehoming. That was very important. It is time for the Government to act on this. We need to look at how to drive up standards for online advertising and raise awareness of rogue pet dealers among the general public. We also need to ensure we have a robust pet...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (26 Oct 2017)

Sue Hayman: In the referendum last year, people did not vote for dangerous levels of pollution and the weakening of environmental protections. It is all very well for the Secretary of State to make worthy speeches about a green Brexit, but as it stands, the Government’s repeal Bill makes this an impossibility. Will he now admit that the omission of the “polluter pays” principle and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (26 Oct 2017)

Sue Hayman: I thank the Secretary of State for his comments. Clearly, many of our environmental protections come from Europe. Another victim of the repeal Bill that I would like to draw his attention to is the precautionary principle, which sets a benchmark to protect the environment from policy and developmental proposals that would do irreparable harm. Is his commitment to me now therefore a commitment...

Surgical Mesh Implants — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (18 Oct 2017)

Sue Hayman: My constituent Alison had a mesh put in too tight. She was in appalling pain and had to travel all the way from Cumbria to Manchester to get treatment. Now she has had it partially removed, she is in a worse state than ever and has to go back to Manchester again. Does my hon. Friend agree that something has to be done to help people with removal?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Brexit: Farming (20 Jul 2017)

Sue Hayman: The National Farmers Union says that the number of seasonal farm workers coming to the UK has dropped by 17%, and a report published this week states that “the silence from Government on the labour question is astonishing.” Food production, processing and packaging rely heavily on migrant labour—the Office for National Statistics states that they make up 41% of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Brexit: Farming (20 Jul 2017)

Sue Hayman: Well, that all sounds marvellous, doesn’t it? So why does the report say we have a looming food crisis if everything is under control? It says we could actually run out of some foods after Brexit. One of the authors, Professor Tim Lang, accuses the Government of a “serious policy failing on an unprecedented scale” for their handling of the food security situation. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Points of Order (25 Apr 2017)

Sue Hayman: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I seek your advice and guidance regarding parliamentary protocol in the case of a Member writing to another Member’s constituents as part of an election campaign. The hon. Member for Copeland (Trudy Harrison) has written, as a Member of Parliament, to postal voters in my constituency on Conservative-branded paper ahead of the Cumbria County Council...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Points of Order (25 Apr 2017)

Sue Hayman: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. To clarify, the letters were signed “Trudy Harrison, MP”, and across the top it said “MP”. She described herself as an MP. [Interruption.]

Air Quality Strategy (24 Apr 2017)

Sue Hayman: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs if she will make a statement on the publication date of the Government’s air quality strategy.

Air Quality Strategy (24 Apr 2017)

Sue Hayman: Nearly 40 million people in Britain live in areas with illegal levels of air pollution. Two thousand schools and nurseries are close to roads with damaging levels of fumes, and NHS experts estimate that poor air quality contributes to 40,000 premature deaths every year. The situation has gone from bad to worse on this Government’s watch, and has escalated into what the Environment, Food...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: New Markets (20 Apr 2017)

Sue Hayman: Does the Minister recognise that it is crucial to place the needs of the agricultural sector at the heart of the Brexit negotiations? Is it not clear that if the Government do not get their act together, a bad Brexit deal would leave British farmers and food producers facing the double whammy of cheap food imports and tariffs on their exports?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: New Markets (20 Apr 2017)

Sue Hayman: But how do the Government intend to deliver on these promises? The Country Land and Business Association is saying that the Government should admit that they cannot design a workable new agricultural policy in less than two years because DEFRA simply does not have the capacity to do so. The Government’s failure to reach an agreement could leave our farmers unable to compete at home and...

Animal Welfare (30 Mar 2017)

Sue Hayman: I thank the hon. Member for Tiverton and Honiton (Neil Parish) for bringing this debate to the Chamber, and for his continued chairmanship of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee. We have had excellent contributions from both sides of the House, including many from members of the Select Committee. I would like to speak broadly in favour of the Committee’s recommendations....
