Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Cost Increases: Food Producers and Consumers (8 Sep 2022)

Jim McMahon: First, may I welcome the new Secretary of State, the hon. Member for North East Hampshire (Mr Jayawardena), 54and his Ministers to their place? I look forward to a constructive relationship, but it will be a testing relationship, as we work through the catalogue of failures left by his predecessor. Rocketing food costs have pushed inflation to a 40-year high and, according to the Bank of...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Sewage Discharge (8 Sep 2022)

Jim McMahon: Over the summer, the Government allowed water bosses to dump sewage on 90 beaches in our coastal hotspots—the foundation of those visitor economies—affecting already hard-squeezed businesses that are barely keeping their heads above water. We hear that the Secretary of State is satisfied by a telephone call with water bosses, but does he not realise that they are laughing at him? They are...

Sewage Pollution (6 Sep 2022)

Jim McMahon: The scenes over the summer have shown us again that the country is awash with Conservative-approved filthy raw sewage. Over the last six years, there have been over 1 million sewage discharge spill events, which on average means a spill taking place every 2.5 minutes. Just in the time that we will be in this Chamber for this urgent question, 18 sewage discharges will take place. The water...

Child Sexual Exploitation and Safeguarding in Oldham (30 Jun 2022)

Jim McMahon: May I say how moving I thought the closing of that debate was, and your contribution in particular, Mr Deputy Speaker? I thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker, and the Opposition Chief Whip for granting me permission to bring this important debate to the House of Commons Chamber. As those in the House will be aware, it is rare for a Front-Bench spokesperson to take to the Back Benches to lead an...

Child Sexual Exploitation and Safeguarding in Oldham (30 Jun 2022)

Jim McMahon: My hon. Friend makes very powerful points. It is clear that victims have been let down. When they went to the people who were there to protect them—social workers and police officers—they were left standing alone. Even with the passage of time, we need to make sure that the perpetrators, who carried out those disgraceful acts of abuse over a long period, feel the full weight of the law....

Child Sexual Exploitation and Safeguarding in Oldham (30 Jun 2022)

Jim McMahon: I agree. After three years of this cloud hanging over our town, I can see the damage that it has caused, not only to the individuals who have been targeted by abuse, but to the families having their homes targeted, with death threats being levelled and all that brings—the anxiety, the stress and the strain. It is very difficult even to talk about that in a conversation like this, when we...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Food Security (23 Jun 2022)

Jim McMahon: Yesterday, inflation hit a new 40-year high at 9.1% amid the cost of living crisis. Things seem to be getting worse with each month that passes. Currently, 7.3 million people are living in food poverty, including 2.6 million children. What assessment have the Government made of the number of people who will be in food poverty by Christmas this year? If that assessment does exist, can it be...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Food Security (23 Jun 2022)

Jim McMahon: The Government’s own food security report relies on the existence of food banks to keep the UK fed. However, food banks cannot keep up today with the rocketing demand. Far from levelling up, what we see in reality is that our northern regions are the hardest hit with the highest levels of food insecurity. Is it not the truth that the Government’s record of low wages, low growth, record...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (23 Jun 2022)

Jim McMahon: Given the impact covid has had on mental health and wellbeing, for many, access to the outdoors was a vital escape, but the Secretary of State will know that access is not equal. Research by Wildlife and Countryside Link highlights that the poorest communities are twice as likely to live in a neighbourhood without access to nature. What are the Government doing to ensure that every...

Government Food Strategy (13 Jun 2022)

Jim McMahon: I thank the Secretary of State for advance sight of his statement. It certainly did not take long to read. It is now nearly a year since the publication of Henry Dimbleby’s independent review of England’s food system, a review commissioned by the Secretary of State’s Department. On the back of the review, he promised a national food strategy White Paper by January. Not only is he six...

Food Price Inflation (19 May 2022)

Jim McMahon: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to make a statement on food price inflation.

Food Price Inflation (19 May 2022)

Jim McMahon: I am staggered by that response. The Secretary of State speaks like a commentator or spectator on the sidelines, rather than the person responsible around the Cabinet table for food security. He seems oblivious to the cost of living crisis that people are facing. He can reel off the stats all he wants, but working people know that when they go to the supermarket, the price of almost...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Household Budgets: Food Prices (28 Apr 2022)

Jim McMahon: Britain is besieged by a cost of living crisis. Tax hikes and rocketing bills are making life harder for working people. We know that 4.7 million adults and 2.5 million children live in food poverty, 2.1 million food parcels were issued last year, and 1 million people will not eat at all today. Looking back on his nine years in the Department, what would the Secretary of State have done...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Household Budgets: Food Prices (28 Apr 2022)

Jim McMahon: The Secretary of State knows that the cost of food will get much higher as farmers and producers grapple with increased costs and Government-inflicted labour shortages. As the Minister responsible for food security, will he urgently convene a cross-Government summit with the food industry, devolved and local government and charities to finally get ahead of the crisis—or are the Government...

Written Answers — Home Office: Pets: Theft (21 Apr 2022)
