Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (15 Oct 2019)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: ...part of a parliamentary delegation to Ethiopia and, some years later, meeting many Eritrean refugees. His work is very welcome and we should recognise it warmly. I turn to the less happy subject of Brexit and the preparations for a no deal, a report on which the Government published yesterday. I will talk particularly about UK nationals in the EU. I declare an interest as someone who lives...

Antimicrobial Resistance - Motion to Take Note (2 May 2019)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: ...intensive systems where tens of thousands of birds are kept permanently indoors in overcrowded conditions are likely to need to be dosed frequently. One of the issues for the Government is that, if Brexit happens, they will be looking at with whom to make trade deals. The Government should consider the effect of making deals with people who are encouraging intensive farming when looking at...

Climate Change - Motion to Take Note (24 Jan 2019)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: ...less soil erosion and more shade and windbreaks for animals. Under CAP rules you can have such a scheme but so far the UK Government have refused to implement it. Whether or not we end up with Brexit, we must ensure a much more positive policy on agroforestry. This is about how we use our land. When the Agriculture Bill comes to your Lordships’ House, we should make sure that we have...

Brexit: UK Nationals - Question (9 Jan 2019)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what outreach work British embassies have undertaken in the 27 other European Union member states to keep United Kingdom nationals informed of their rights after Brexit.

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (2nd Day) (6 Dec 2018)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: ...worse and much more limited in terms of study, travel and opportunity. That is why I get so angry when people, such as noble Lords opposite, speak glibly of the will of the people having decided Brexit. It was overwhelmingly the will of the old people. I see no reason why a people’s vote, based on the information of what the future actually looks like, should be construed as...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Driving: Licensing (30 Apr 2018)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: To ask Her Majesty's Government (1) what discussions they have had, and (2) what conclusions have been reached, with the EU regarding the reciprocal recognition of driving licences post-Brexit.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Pet Travel Scheme (30 Apr 2018)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: To ask Her Majesty's Government what discussions they have had with the EU on pet passports in the context of Brexit; and, following those discussions, what advice they will provide to pet owners who regularly travel between the UK and the EU with their pets.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (30 Jan 2018)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: ...up the pleasant reaches of the environment plan, warmed by cosy aspirations and promises. But I am afraid that today our paddles will be swept away and our canoes overturned as the tsunami of Brexit sweeps away environmental protections. The pleasant aspirations of the environment plan are absolutely no protection compared to that offered by the EU directives. We are being asked to take it...

Waste: Chinese Import Ban - Question for Short Debate (11 Jan 2018)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: ...than ours. Germany, South Korea and Slovenia have the highest rates. What are they doing that is so right? Perhaps the biggest blow will be the loss of the EU circular economy package as we face Brexit. That would have been very helpful, and I hope that the Government will still consider adopting it in its entirety. My second question is: what about biodegradable plastic? I do not have a...

Brexit: Food Prices - Question (14 Nov 2017)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how they expect Brexit will affect United Kingdom food prices over the next five years.

Brexit: Food Prices - Question (14 Nov 2017)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: ..., I thank the Minister for his reply. He will be aware that food price inflation hit 4.1% today, which gives credence to predictions of the kind made by the British Retail Consortium that a no-deal Brexit would be followed by rises of up to 33%. I think that the whole House would agree that it is always the poorest households that are hardest hit, so will the Government prioritise food in...

Air and Water Pollution: Impact - Motion to Take Note (26 Oct 2017)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: ...with grants and advice, so that they can manage their business with clean water and a healthy natural environment in mind. Clearly, any future farming support must be linked to a clean record, but Brexit poses a risk of actually increasing agricultural water pollution. Why? Removing slurry costs farmers about £12.50 a tonne, and if all of a sudden common agricultural policy subsidies go,...

Animal Welfare Offences - Question (24 Oct 2017)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: My Lords, if Brexit happens, will the Government ensure that it remains a criminal offence to import animals or birds captured in the wild? Before the EU brought in a ban, the UK was a ready market for people who pillaged other people’s jungles and wild places.

Brexit: Agriculture and Farm Animal Welfare (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (17 Oct 2017)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: ...in global terms but other countries buy from us because of the outstanding quality of British beef, lamb and other products. That is a good niche to be in and is one we can expand. I hope that post Brexit the EU will still be an important market for us. Therefore, will we try to conform to the same standards? Two current examples are neonicotinoids—I know that the Minister is responsible...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (21 Feb 2017)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: ...up as a post-war child was hearing the amount of discussion and determination among the political classes that we would never have another war in Europe. At the top of my list of worries about Brexit is that we shall see an insular, narrow-minded nationalism taking hold and turning us from an outgoing, internationalist nation into an inward-looking nation. We have heard much in the past...

Brexit: Environmental Standards - Question (2 Feb 2017)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what measures they will put in place following Brexit to safeguard environmental standards and biodiversity.

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

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: ...on her absolutely excellent introduction to this debate, which she secured. Unsurprisingly, there has been great consensus in this Chamber on what we do not want to see happen as a result of Brexit. We do not want to return to our pre-EU membership status as the “dirty man of Europe”; nor do we want to allow the dramatic decline in our biodiversity to continue. It was very speedy in...
