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....

Middle Level Bill (29 Mar 2017)

Sue Hayman: I am pleased to speak to the private Bill on behalf of the official Opposition. I thank the hon. Member for Torbay (Kevin Foster) for so thoroughly covering the background and setting out why the Bill is needed. I would like to emphasise a few points, because I think it is important that the House has a clear understanding of the proposals and of why the Bill is needed. The Bill amends and...

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

Sue Hayman: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Paisley, and to have the opportunity to respond to this debate today for the Opposition. I start by thanking my hon. Friend the Member for Newport West (Paul Flynn) for opening the debate and demonstrating, with his usual eloquence, his passion for the subject. My hon. Friend the Member for Penistone and Stocksbridge (Angela Smith) made...

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

Sue Hayman: It may well be an annual figure, but there is still an extraordinarily significant difference between the two figures.

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

Sue Hayman: Well, I consider it to be extraordinary, and I think that many colleagues do, as well.

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

Sue Hayman: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. It only goes to show that we really need proper evidence. However we look at it, it is much more expensive, per badger, to cull.

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

Sue Hayman: I thank my hon. Friend for his intervention. The important thing is that we have effective long-term solutions, and vaccination has been shown to play an important part in that. The example of Wales has shown what we need to emulate here in England. The randomised badger culling trial—RBCT—which has been mentioned, is the largest ever study conducted to examine whether culling...

Microbead Ban — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (8 Mar 2017)

Sue Hayman: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I congratulate the hon. Member for Taunton Deane (Rebecca Pow) on securing this debate on such an important issue, which she obviously feels strongly about, and introducing it so clearly and passionately. I am sure that other hon. Members have received a lot of emails and letters about this issue, as I have. It is of genuine...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Food Prices (2 Mar 2017)

Sue Hayman: The Minister talks about food prices falling, but supermarkets are warning of the potential for food prices to rise significantly this year, which will have a huge effect on every household in the country. Nearly half our food is imported and prices are already starting to rise for the first time in three years owing to the weak pound and inflation. What exactly are the Government doing to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Food Prices (2 Mar 2017)

Sue Hayman: The Minister talks about monitoring, but it was recently revealed that research to inform agricultural and environmental policy once the UK leaves the European Union has not even been commissioned by the Department. The Minister’s warm words are all very well, but the agricultural sector desperately needs long-term clarity and the Government are failing to deliver it. Will the Minister...

Future Flood Prevention (27 Feb 2017)

Sue Hayman: This has been a really interesting debate. It was admirably opened by the hon. Member for Tiverton and Honiton (Neil Parish), the Chair of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee, who gave the House some really interesting information from his Committee’s report. He was followed by my hon. Friend the Member for Wakefield (Mary Creagh), the Chair of the Environmental Audit...
