To help, this month we are bringing forward half of this year’s basic payment...

Cost of Living: Support for Farmers — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (12 Jul 2022)

Justin Madders: ...the hon. Member for Rutland and Melton (Alicia Kearns) for her excellent introduction and for raising a comprehensive range of issues. I will focus on just one of the issues she mentioned, which is fertiliser production, as I have a significant constituency interest in the matter. As we know, fertiliser is critical to food production. An increase in its cost has an impact on yields. We are...

Agricultural Fertiliser and Feed: Rising Costs - Question for Short Debate (29 Jun 2022)

Lord Benyon: ...closely linked to global gas prices, as the noble Baroness, Lady Bakewell, and the noble Lord, Lord Campbell-Savours, pointed out. Farmers are facing increased input costs, including manufactured fertiliser, livestock feed, fuel and energy.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Grasslands: Fertilisers (27 Jun 2022)

Jo Churchill: While global fertiliser prices have risen and this is undoubtedly a challenging period for our agricultural sectors, the supply chain providing imports of fertiliser to the UK has remained resilient.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Fertilisers (22 Jun 2022)

Jo Churchill: Global gas prices have impacted production of fertilisers internationally and domestically. Some international companies halted or reduced production, and some countries, such as China, reduced the export of some fertiliser products to protect their domestic demands. However, supply of all fertilisers in the UK has remained available throughout the last 12 months although high prices reduced...

Government Food Strategy (13 Jun 2022)

Justin Madders: As has been referenced already, last week, CF Fertilisers in my constituency announced that it would begin consultation on closing the plant, which puts 300 jobs at risk. It also exposes us far more to the international fertiliser market, which is the opposite of what I understood this strategy was meant to achieve. Ministers have had nine months’ notice that there was a problem at the...

Alex Cunningham: ...of the crisis they have created for energy-intensive industries such as those on Teesside. Now that the EU has set aside €50 million to help its firms with energy costs, British firms such as CF Fertilisers, which have no such support, face even tougher competition. I know the Minister is visiting the company tomorrow, but what will the Government do to address the impact of this EU...

Victoria Prentis: We are aware that due to the increase in cost of natural gas across the globe, which is a key input for the production of ammonium nitrate-based fertiliser products, the cost of production of these fertiliser types has increased significantly. Increased demand has also increased the cost of other alternative fertiliser types. Rising cost of natural gas is affecting Europe and the global...

Working People’s Finances: Government Policy (21 Sep 2021)

Alex Cunningham: There is some good news this afternoon, because I understand that the Government have actually helped out and we have some form of agreement with CF Fertilisers—the company that makes fertiliser from natural gas and produces 60% of the country’s CO2, which is so desperately needed for everything from beer to anaesthetic systems in hospitals.

We encourage those discussions, of course, because the issue is now absolutely critical to keeping our...

UK Gas Market (20 Sep 2021)

Kwasi Kwarteng: ...remains a liberalised competitive market in order to deliver value and good service to consumers. As a result of high global gas prices, right hon. and hon. Members will perhaps have read that two fertiliser plants in Teesside and Cheshire shut down last week. They suspended the production of CO2 and ammonia. That decision has surely affected in the short term our domestic supply of carbon...

Green Energy in the North-west (23 Jun 2021)

It is also the front end of key supply chains for the production of products such as building...

Former Steelworks Site in Redcar — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (14 Nov 2018)

Alex Cunningham: As the Minister is in the room, it is important to acknowledge that we have only two fertiliser plants in the whole UK, one of which is in Stockton North, my constituency. Both plants are run by CF Fertilisers, and both are extremely worried by the Government’s proposals for a post-Brexit carbon tax, which they believe could ruin their business. Will the right hon. Gentleman join me in...
