Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Implementation of the Agreement on Government Procurement (18 Jun 2020)

Fleur Anderson: Just to clarify, the air quality in Putney High Street was dreadful before the unfortunate closure of the beautiful Hammersmith bridge, due to years of neglect under previous administrations, so that is not the reason; it has been a long-term issue.

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Implementation of the Agreement on Government Procurement (18 Jun 2020)

Fleur Anderson: I thank my hon. Friend for that apposite remark. That is what we risk if we do not include the amendment. If it is not explicit in the Bill, it will have to be negotiated in every single agreement, so we might miss out on some. The dangers have already been manifested through the continuity trade agreements that have been agreed. Trade deals have already been struck with countries where...

Fleur Anderson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Graham. This is my first opportunity to speak in a Bill Committee as a new MP, and what an honour it is to speak in such an important debate—an important debate for not only my constituents in Putney, who are very interested in this Committee, having been told all about it, but people across the country and across the world. In bringing...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Examination of Witness (18 Jun 2020)

Fleur Anderson: Q In terms of global best practice on trade agreements, if there was a ranking system, with nought being no parliamentary scrutiny at all and 10 being maximum parliamentary scrutiny plus civil society involvement, what score or ranking would you give the Trade Bill? What are the downsides of not having much parliamentary scrutiny? Can you give us examples of what things can be improved in...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Examination of witnesses (18 Jun 2020)

Fleur Anderson: Q I have a question for each of you. The question for David Lawrence is about scrutiny. You talked about the addition of scrutiny. Do you see any downside to adding in that additional level of scrutiny, particularly for developing countries, but also for British businesses and workers? For Tom, a recent High Court decision about Heathrow airport ruled that we could not have Heathrow airport...

Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (Accession) (17 Jun 2020)

Fleur Anderson: My constituents in Putney are very worried about the implications of the partnership and all the Brexit agreements for the NHS.

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Examination of Witness (16 Jun 2020)

Fleur Anderson: Q I have two questions. The first is about the membership of the TRA. The Bill sets out that the maximum number will be nine. What do you think would be the optimal number, and what would the considerations for that be? We have heard today from farmers, industry representatives, small businesses and trade unions that they would all like to be members. How will you ensure that it will be...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Examination of Witness (16 Jun 2020)

Fleur Anderson: Q I have two questions. First, on the equivalent standards that you were just talking about, specifically those on animal health and welfare, can you give any more examples of how UK farmers could be undercut or treated detrimentally if that is not explicitly included in the Bill? Secondly, on trade information, clause 7 provides new powers for HMRC to collect information on the identity and...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Examination of Witness (16 Jun 2020)

Fleur Anderson: Q Thank you for the examples on animal health. Similarly, for plant health, do you have any examples of how there will be a difference between our farmers and those in other countries, and of what a lowering of those standards might mean?

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 Jun 2020)

Fleur Anderson: My question is to both contributors; thank you very much for coming. It is about our trade with developing countries. Looking specifically at sanitary and phytosanitary measures, which Professor Winters mentioned and which can be used as trade barriers, but also looking in general, could the Bill be detrimental for developing countries, and how could it be improved to complement our poverty...
