Trade in Animals and Animal Products (Legislative Functions) and Veterinary Surgeons (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (7 Oct 2019)

Baroness Parminter: ...and support the intention behind the amendment. It is absolutely clear that businesses in the farming and agribusiness community are extremely concerned about the potential impact of a no-deal Brexit on their businesses. Bringing these SIs forward under the affirmative procedure seems to fly in the face of the proposals agreed in the other place and supported broadly here—the Benn...

Use of Language to Create a Safe Environment - Statement (26 Sep 2019)

Baroness Parminter: ...make the situation worse. Yesterday, here in Parliament—particularly down the other end, I am sad to say, with the words of our Prime Minister—we saw that the language and tone on the issue of Brexit can have the potential to make the divisions on our streets much worse. There is a real possibility of consequences for people in our divided communities and homes. As the noble Earl has...

Common Agricultural Policy and Market Measures (Miscellaneous Amendments) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (8 May 2019)

Baroness Parminter: ...European Union has been so good at protecting? That is particularly relevant in a week when we hear that in the discussions between the Labour Party and the Government on stitching up a potential Brexit deal, it is environmental protections that the Government have not guaranteed. So, yes, we welcome the transposing of the standards, which will offer further protections to consumers on...

Veterinary Surgeons and Animal Welfare (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (6 Feb 2019)

Baroness Parminter: ...to be of the highest standard and it is incumbent on us in this House to ensure that the public have the highest confidence in them. However, I disagree most strongly with his position that Brexit will be good for animal welfare and the veterinary profession. We need to reflect on the very real challenge posed by Brexit about how we will get the number of vets that we will need in future....

Inshore Fisheries - Private Notice Question (3 Jul 2017)

Baroness Parminter: My Lords, our fishing industry contributes less than 0.5% to our country’s GDP, yet it is hard to think of any industry that will be affected more by Brexit, along with the rural communities that fishermen come from. How are the Government going to guarantee that our fishermen and their industry are not used as a bargaining chip in the Brexit negotiations?

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (Continued) (26 Jun 2017)

Baroness Parminter: ...exactly as they are. While that may be necessary, though, it will not be sufficient. Will the Government commit that any adjustments to EU environmental laws needed to fit the realities of a post-Brexit UK will provide the same or a higher level of environmental protection as those in the original regulations? I ask that as there are real concerns that a Government who have consistently...

Air Quality - Statement (24 Apr 2017)

Baroness Parminter: ...environment, it is very good at talking the talk on protecting the environment, but it is not good at walking the walk. I have two quick questions for the Minister. First, does he accept that after Brexit, when we no longer have the European Union obligations, we need firm air quality targets in UK law to hold the Government to account? Secondly, what comfort can the Minister give to both...

Agricultural Sector (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (22 Nov 2016)

Baroness Parminter: ...of the historical position and where the CAP came from. Equally, I agree that there are some elements in the current debate about the future of the common agricultural policy in the post-Brexit context who think that the money should go just to the environment. My position is that we have to have the provision of healthy food and we have to have environmental protection. It is about...

Brexit: Environmental and Climate Change Policy - Motion to Take Note (20 Oct 2016)

Baroness Parminter: .... Again, they have shown the breadth of expertise in this House but also, as my noble friend Lord Teverson said, the breadth of environmental issues that Defra will have to cover as a result of Brexit. I thank the Minister for the answers that he has been able to give to us today; there are clearly many unanswered questions. As we move outside the European Union, which acts as a backstop...

Brexit: Environmental and Climate Change Policy - Motion to Take Note (20 Oct 2016)

Baroness Parminter: ..., clean water and flood prevention. There is no doubt that there will be political pressure to divert the £3 billion that farmers currently receive away from agriculture—who can forget the Brexit bus and its infamous promise of £350 million a week for the NHS? By allying a new agricultural and land management policy to the provision of public goods, political will to maintain farm...
