Renaissance of East Anglian Fisheries Study (5 Nov 2019)

Peter Aldous: ...constituency, geographically at its centre. Lowestoft is historically the fishing capital of the southern North sea, and the hope is that in the future, if we make the most of the opportunity that Brexit presents, it will be the regional hub port at the heart of a revived but modern fishing industry that plays a key role in the regeneration of coastal communities. REAF—the Renaissance of...

Renaissance of East Anglian Fisheries Study (5 Nov 2019)

Peter Aldous: ...designed to provoke contemplation and debate. It sets out a range of practical recommendations that, if implemented, could bring significant benefits to local people, communities and businesses. Brexit on its own is not a magic wand that will revitalise our fishing industry, but it gives us the opportunity to start again with a clean sheet of paper, to pursue innovative and radical...

Park Home Residents: Legal Protection (1 Oct 2019)

Peter Aldous: ...of the Mobile Homes Act 2013, much of which has been instigated by the Government. However, much of this activity has been taking place beneath the radar, elbowed out of the spotlight by the Brexit debate. It is therefore good news that we are using this unexpected opportunity to review the situation and to consider whether we are on the right course to ensure the sector is fit for...

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Peter Aldous: ...short of the minimum £760 per student sought by the Sixth Form Colleges Association in its “Raise the Rate” campaign. As we know, a lot is going on at present, but whatever the outcome of Brexit, nothing is more important than investment in the next generation. The Government have recognised this with the extra funding provided. They now need to work with schools, the regional...

Resignation of Uk Ambassador to Usa (11 Jul 2019)

Peter Aldous: Sir Kim Darroch is the epitome of all that is the very best about Britain and our institutions. Notwithstanding the enormous pressures of Brexit and all its consequences, does my right hon. Friend agree that our diplomatic and civil services are fundamental and vital cornerstones of British governance that none of us must ever undermine?

Petition - TV Licences for over 75S: Lowestoft High Street: Revitalisation (10 Apr 2019)

Peter Aldous: encouraged to take place there. Should not the NHS and our schools pursue a “town centre first” approach when considering the location of surgeries, clinics, schools and colleges? With the Brexit debate raging, there is a worry that the future of our high streets will be overlooked. That must not happen. If it does, we shall be letting down people, communities and businesses all...

Further Education Funding — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (2 Apr 2019)

Peter Aldous: ..., the college is an important component part of the local community and civic society. I have got to the end without mentioning the “B” word, but I will do so now. Whatever happens with Brexit, there is no getting away from the fact that the British economy is competing in a global market. Our people are the engine of our success. At present, due to a poorly funded FE sector, we are...

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (27 Mar 2019)

Peter Aldous: What we are doing this evening is what we should have done a long time ago, at the outset of this process. Something of the magnitude of Brexit has never been attempted before anywhere else in the world. We should have put down the foundations before laying the bricks. That said, my favoured course is to support the withdrawal agreement that the Government have negotiated, and if there is...

Future of the Oil and Gas Industry — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (14 Mar 2019)

Peter Aldous: ...are plenty of challenges, but my sense is that the industry is resurgent and brimful of ideas. With the right nurturing, promotion and collaboration, it can play a key role in the UK on the post-Brexit global stage.

Leaving the Eu: Fishing (13 Mar 2019)

Peter Aldous: ...efforts over the past few years. I congratulate the hon. Member for Great Grimsby (Melanie Onn) on securing this debate. Her timing is particularly auspicious. Although the final form that Brexit will take is uncertain at present, I believe that, generally, the Government and Parliament have used the period from 23 June 2016 up to now to good effect—focusing on the UK fishing industry...

Leaving the Eu: Fishing (13 Mar 2019)

Peter Aldous: ...that abhorrent and completely unsustainable practice through provisions in the Bill. To make the most of the opportunity to ensure that Lowestoft and other East Anglian fishing communities reap the Brexit dividend, the industry in East Anglia, under the leadership of June Mummery and Paul Lines, has formed the Renaissance of East Anglian Fishing. With the assistance of Waveney District...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Fisheries (21 Feb 2019)

Peter Aldous: I am grateful to the Secretary of State for that reply. Brexit provides a great opportunity to revitalise the Lowestoft fishing industry, but to do so local fishermen must be able to catch enough fish to earn a fair living for themselves and to supply local merchants and processors. Will the Secretary of State confirm that the Fisheries Bill will deliver the root-and-branch reform that is...

Leaving the EU: European Union (Withdrawal) Act (14 Jan 2019)

Peter Aldous: ...shadow of its former self. The canning factory has closed, the coachworks have gone and the Sanyo TV factory—the last major TV manufacturer in the UK—was shut down in 2009. The message that Brexit sent from towns such as Lowestoft is that they have not done well in this period and we need to do something different. As the negotiations and debates drag on, we must never forget that...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Duties to ensure fishing opportunities not exceeded (13 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: the commercial sector is one of the Government’s most important functions. As we have heard, it will, to a very large extent, determine the success or failure of the fishing industry post-Brexit. It is generally acknowledged that the current system is dysfunctional as it encourages the over-concentration of ownership and has permitted the foreign dominance of the UK fishing...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Distribution of fishing opportunities (13 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: ...would be unlikely to succeed.” That conclusion is based on two key points. First, the mandate for reallocation would be placed in a new Act of Parliament that overrides any common law and, after Brexit, will be supreme. Secondly, in the 2013 case, Mr Justice Cranston stated that in his view FQA units could be deemed as possessions falling within article 1 of the first protocol of the...

Fisheries Bill (21 Nov 2018)

Peter Aldous: ...quota must be fairer and accessible to all, and should take place transparently, rather than in the existing opaque way. That will enable all fishermen from all communities to really benefit from Brexit.

EU Exit Negotiations (15 Nov 2018)

Peter Aldous: The Prime Minister has worked tirelessly over the past 18 months to achieve this draft agreement. My constituency voted for Brexit for many reasons. Chief among them was to reverse 40 years of economic decline. In her opinion, does this agreement provide the framework within which we can revive the economy in coastal towns such as Lowestoft, whether in trade, manufacturing or fishing?

Asylum Accommodation Contracts: Economic Growth: East of England (10 Oct 2018)

Peter Aldous: infrastructure that is needed to transform what is already a highly successful economic region into a global leader. It is important that we now cast aside such shyness. As we look beyond Brexit, the UK must strive to be the leader in a variety of fields. The east of England can help secure this goal, whether it is in the clean energy, agri-food, life sciences or information and...

Asylum Accommodation Contracts: Economic Growth: East of England (10 Oct 2018)

Peter Aldous: overestimated. The need for a full fibre network to all homes and businesses across the whole region is incredibly important. It is an absolute must, if the region is to compete globally post Brexit. If necessary, greater powers should be granted to Ofcom to ensure that commercial operators do not just concentrate on the larger urban areas. With regard to our regional industrial...

Sustainable Fisheries (4 Jul 2018)

Peter Aldous: .... Does the Secretary of State agree that now is the time for regional strategies to be developed within this national framework to ensure that coastal communities derive maximum benefit from Brexit? These strategies should look at issues such as the economic link, protecting the marine environment from such damaging activities as electronic pulse fishing, access to quota for small-scale...
