Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Food Labelling (27 Jan 2022)

Huw Merriman: What plans his Department has to improve the quality of food labelling.

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Food Labelling (27 Jan 2022)

Huw Merriman: We know that our consumers want to buy British and buy Northern Irish to support higher animal welfare standards and our farming community, but sometimes they find food labelling confusing and misleading as to country of origin. What action have the Government taken to clarify the confusion? What steps will the Minister take, particularly with regard to making the technology even better in future?

Consumer Protection (Double Charging) (25 Jan 2022)

Huw Merriman: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to make provision about protecting consumers from being charged twice for the same good or service; and for connected purposes. In a nutshell, this Bill would end the practice where customers are fined or charged again for a good or service that they can prove has already been purchased. Having supported constituents who have attempted,...

Covid-19: International Travel (24 Jan 2022)

Huw Merriman: Not only is today’s announcement another example of our living with covid; this is also a landmark day for international travel, a sector that has been absolutely decimated over the last couple of years. Today’s news is surely the evidence it needs to show that people should now feel confident to book with certainty. With that in mind, will the Secretary of State ensure a culture across...

BBC Funding (17 Jan 2022)

Huw Merriman: I often find that those best placed to give their view on whether we need the BBC or not are those who have lived, worked and travelled abroad and have not had access to the BBC. Therefore, I applaud the constituent who has written to me, having done just that, to say that the BBC needs to be celebrated and maintained, because he sees what a future looks like in this country without the BBC....

Home Department: Knife Crime (17 Jan 2022)

Huw Merriman: What steps she is taking to reduce knife crime.

Home Department: Knife Crime (17 Jan 2022)

Huw Merriman: I welcome the work from the Home Secretary on reducing those numbers, but sadly last year saw the highest number of teenage murders in London since records began. Can I therefore commend the “No More Red” campaign set up by Arsenal football club, supported by Ian Wright and Idris Elba? As Ian Wright points out, and as I found out myself as a volunteer in a youth centre, they offer the...

Environmental Audit Committee: Smart Motorways — [Mr Phillip Hollobone in the Chair] (13 Jan 2022)

Huw Merriman: I beg to move, That this House has considered the Third Report of the Transport Committee, Rollout and safety of smart motorways, HC26, and the Government response, HC 1020. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. It is the Government response that I am particularly pleased to be discussing; Select Committees scrutinise and then put forward our recommendations, and in...

Environmental Audit Committee: Smart Motorways — [Mr Phillip Hollobone in the Chair] (13 Jan 2022)

Huw Merriman: I thank the right hon. Gentleman and take his point on board, although it is a bit difficult to go back to the start and do as he has suggested. However, it is a familiar topic about smart motorways that will come up later. He is absolutely right. If the design guide had followed the prototype—I intend to refer to the M42 and where things then moved—we might have found ourselves in a very...

Environmental Audit Committee: Smart Motorways — [Mr Phillip Hollobone in the Chair] (13 Jan 2022)

Huw Merriman: I thank my right hon. Friend for the expertise he brings to this debate. He makes some fascinating points. I am interested in whether the advice was followed by Highways England, as it then was. This was a new concept. Our recommendations included giving Ministers and the Department a little more independent advice from the Office of Rail and Road—the roads regulator. Had that been the...

Environmental Audit Committee: Smart Motorways — [Mr Phillip Hollobone in the Chair] (13 Jan 2022)

Huw Merriman: I would be interested in hearing from former Ministers and the current Minister, but from my study of the matter over the last six years, I think the answer is that the culture has been about creating the capacity. That makes perfect sense, because if we create the capacity on the motorway network, we take traffic off the more dangerous roads. However, the difficulty is that we have then not...

Environmental Audit Committee: Smart Motorways — [Mr Phillip Hollobone in the Chair] (13 Jan 2022)

Huw Merriman: Thank you for chairing the debate, Mr Hollobone. I also thank all right hon. and hon. Members who have contributed. I thank the hon. Member for Easington (Grahame Morris) and my hon. Friend the Member for West Dorset (Chris Loder), who represent the finest of our Committee membership. I am very fortunate as a Chair to have such brilliant members. We are not particularly diverse on gender,...

Transport Committee (13 Jan 2022)

Huw Merriman: I am very pleased to be able to make this statement, and not just to commend a set of recommendations from the Transport Committee to the House, but to welcome the acceptance of every one of them by the Government. In so doing, I would like to thank my predecessors as Chair of the Committee. Back in 2016, when I was a member of the Committee, the then Chair, Dame Louise Ellman, made a series...
