Fisheries Bill (21 Nov 2018)

Peter Aldous: ...to do so it needs the right national policy framework in place, and that is what this Bill needs to provide. From REAF’s perspective, the Bill must provide the following: first, the East Anglian fleet must be able to catch and land sufficient fish so that those working on the boats can earn a reasonable living and can supply local markets, processing and retailing businesses—the...

EU Exit Negotiations (15 Nov 2018)

Richard Bacon: When we become an independent coastal state again, which I very much look forward to, our fishing waters will of course need protecting. Will the Prime Minister consider commissioning a new fleet of very fast naval vessels to chase down and capture any vessels that come into our waters to fish uninvited, thus protecting fishing and our rights to fishing in Scotland and right down the east...

Hinkley Point — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (14 Nov 2018)

Ian Liddell-Grainger: ...stations amount to 40% of UK power generation. Wind and solar already provide roughly 28% of the nation’s needs; that is, of course, whenever the wind blows and the weather allows it. Our old fleet of nuclear power stations appear to be trailing, as they supply just 19%. That leaves a gap that can be filled only by importing power from France and the Netherlands via cables, which is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Fishing Industry (7 Jun 2018)

Peter Aldous: Can the Minister confirm that he has a plan to get the UK fleet through the implementation period, in order to tackle the challenges of ensuring we have enough fish to catch and implementing the discards ban?

Fishing: East Anglia (18 Apr 2018)

Therese Coffey: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Paisley. I congratulate my constituency neighbour, my hon. Friend the Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous), on securing this debate. I know that our fishing industry is of huge importance to him, his constituents and the many other coastal communities around the UK. His has been an important voice in the wider fisheries debate, particularly...

EU Referendum: Electoral Law: National Security and Russia (26 Mar 2018)

Mark Francois: ...of the Dolgorukiy class, armed with the new SS-N-32 ballistic missile. All the Russian submarine-launched ballistic missiles can reach their targets from their home ports, and those in the northern fleet are more than capable of reaching the United Kingdom. In recent years, Russia has also made considerable strides in quietening its submarines, especially the new class of Severodvinsk...

UK Fisheries Policy — [Mr Ian Paisley in the Chair] (27 Feb 2018)

George Eustice: ...Member for North Cornwall also mentioned pulse trawling. I have previously made clear that we have concerns about that and I have asked CEFAS to look at it. My hon. Friend the Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous)—whose constituency is the home of CEFAS, the world’s leading centre for science in fisheries—raised the issue of the small inshore fleet, for which he has been a consistent...

Public Bill Committee: Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Bill: Recommendations: general provisions (30 Jan 2018)

Peter Dowd: ...By the time we get around to designing them, they will be more complicated than they need to be. The Government’s position, as I have indicated, is to take a hammer to crack a nut. They are not fleet of foot enough on this issue. I have tried to lay out where we think the Government should give careful consideration. Though I hear what the Minister says, and his concern about...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Kit Malthouse: ...to plan for the long term. Having fewer Finance Bills is an enormous boon and benefit, particularly to the business community. Contrary to what my fellow Scouser, the hon. Member for Bootle (Peter Dowd), maintained, the Finance Bill contains a veritable smorgasbord of large and small measures, which will touch many people’s lives. For example, the staircase tax rectification is very...

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Peter Aldous: ...that not only provides those working in the industry with a reasonable living, but ensures that the fisheries are passed on to the next generation in a better state. At present, the East Anglian fleet is largely made up of under-10 metre boats that have access to a limited amount of fish to catch. This inequity and imbalance must be addressed. With the EU fleet today taking around four...

Scottish Parliament: Sea Fisheries and End-year Negotiations (7 Dec 2017)

Peter Chapman: ...fish in Norwegian waters. We must not swap access to our seas for access to EU markets. The other big prize once we leave the EU will be our ability to set the rules and regulations governing our fleet. We need a regime that is fair, sustainable in the long term, respects the environment and keeps our fishermen fishing. We can design a better way to manage our fish stocks. This is an...

Sexual Harassment in Parliament (30 Oct 2017)

Peter Heaton-Jones: ...or political parties. It is this institution, Parliament, that has to have a robust governance procedure. There are a few specific categories of people that this process must be sufficiently fleet of foot to be able to help. The first is members of staff who work in our constituency offices, who often feel isolated and vulnerable. The second is students who come here on work experience or...

Backbench Business: Defence Capability — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (19 Oct 2017)

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] [Relevant documents: First Report of the Defence Committee of Session 2015-16, Flexible response? An SDSR checklist of potential threats and vulnerabilities, HC 493, and the Government response, HC 794; Second Report of the Defence Committee of Session 2015-16, Shifting the goalposts? Defence expenditure and the 2% pledge, HC 494, and the Government response, HC...

Electricity Market (EAC Report) - Motion to Take Note (17 Jul 2017)

Baroness Bowles of Berkhamsted: ..., gives me a sense of déjà vu in relation to thin bank capital. It works until something big happens. It is not clear that we are out of the shadow of something big with an ageing nuclear fleet and uncertainty over timely delivery of its replacements. The electricity market is changed from when it was set up. It is easy to point to subsidies, targets and mechanisms used to incentivise...

Ambulance Services (Devon) — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

Philip Dunne: ...demonstrate it to be provided to Members of Parliament and the public—and I will encourage the trust to provide that information. My hon. Friend and other hon. Members referred to the trust’s fleet. It is being reviewed to enable the right resource to be sent the first time. The trust has invested £3.6 million, which has allowed an additional 61 double-crewed ambulances—an increase...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries (17 May 2017)

Kate Forbes: ...west—and I unequivocally assure the Conservatives that they signed up for, and have presided over, a common fisheries policy that has been damaging to our fishermen and our coastal communities. Peter Chapman said that history is irrelevant, but it is totally relevant when it highlights the hypocrisy and the empty rhetoric of Mr Chapman’s party. It was a Conservative leader who signed...

Merchant Shipping (Homosexual Conduct) Bill (20 Jan 2017)

Alan Mak: ...for Milton Keynes South (Iain Stewart)—he is no longer in the Chamber, but he made a moving, personal and powerful speech in support of the Bill—for Shipley (Philip Davies) and for North Devon (Peter Heaton-Jones). I hope to build on their important contributions. I also congratulate the hon. Member for Cambridge (Daniel Zeichner) on his contribution and support for the Bill. Of...

Exiting the Eu: Businesses in Wales: Exiting the EU: Scotland — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (14 Dec 2016)

Peter Grant: ...that presumably benefited some other community elsewhere. The hon. Gentleman points to part of the contradiction in the way the European Union operates. Luxembourg, which does not have a fishing fleet for the very good reason that it does not have a coastline, whose population is about the same size as that of Scotland’s capital city, got more votes on adopting the common fisheries...

Scottish Parliament: Sea Fisheries and End-year Negotiations (7 Dec 2016)

Peter Chapman: ...and are leading the world in those new nets and techniques. It is that ability to innovate, which comes from an understanding of the need to protect a long-term resource, that makes our fishing fleet the envy of the rest of Europe. Of course, there are still a great many challenges facing our fishing industry. The extension of the discard ban to cod and whiting—if mishandled—could have...

Backbench Business: UK Fishing Industry (1 Dec 2016)

Oliver Colvile: I enter the debate with a certain amount of trepidation, having listened to speeches from both my hon. Friend the Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous) and my right hon. Friend the Member for North Shropshire (Mr Paterson), who is a great advocate in this regard. Before I go further, let me pay tribute to Terri Portman, in my constituency, who helped me to ensure that—hopefully—my speech...
