Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Salmon Industry) (20 Feb 2020)

Fergus Ewing: ...is no need for them at all; there would be no need for them if the UK Government agreed dynamic alignment with the EU. It could remove the need for them; however, it has refused. On Monday, I asked George Eustice whether the UK Government would pick up the tab for the extra £9 million, or perhaps more, that the trade body has estimated. Mr Eustice said that that would be a business cost....

Public Bill Committee: Agriculture Bill: Examination of Witness (13 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: Q The Bill sets a different course for the future of agriculture policy, so it will be much more about payment for the delivery of public goods than arbitrary area-based subsidies. Are you generally supportive of that approach? I know there are one or two other things that you think have been missed. Perhaps you could explain what those are to the Committee.

Public Bill Committee: Agriculture Bill: Examination of Witnesses (13 Feb 2020)

...the protection for workers. We are also pleased with clause 27, which concerns fair dealing. It has been enhanced to really protect farmers. We are grateful to DEFRA for making those changes and to George Eustice, who we welcome as our new Secretary of State. We would like to see that as a duty, because it is so important. It is absolutely vital that we get the protection for farmers in...

Public Bill Committee: Agriculture Bill: Examination of Witnesses (13 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: Q 174 For decades, the common agricultural policy, with all its prescriptive rules, has applied to every part of the UK. As we leave, each part of the UK will have the freedom to develop a policy that is right for it. Could you each say what it is about the common agricultural policy that you dislike the most, what you most want to change and what type of system you think is appropriate for...

Public Bill Committee: Agriculture Bill: Examination of Witness (13 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: Q You know that in the new Bill, compared to the one in the previous Parliament, we have added an explicit purpose around soil quality. Will you describe for us how best to measure soil quality or soil health? What kind of management interventions should we encourage under the Bill’s provisions?

Public Bill Committee: Agriculture Bill: Examination of Witnesses (13 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: Q 141 Schedule 5 to the Bill makes explicit provision for Wales, and in particular gives the Welsh Government the power to amend, modify and improve the legacy common agricultural policy scheme. What would be your priorities for that simplification? What are your key concerns about the existing CAP, and, if the Welsh Government had a free hand to improve and simplify it, what would you like...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Pigs: Animal Welfare (13 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: The UK is ahead of most other pig producing countries in that an estimated 40% of breeding sows in the UK are kept outdoors and farrow freely. Of the 60% of sows kept in indoor group housed systems the majority will use farrowing crates, of which there are many different designs. I believe the aim should be for farrowing crates not to be necessary. It is important that we make progress...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Pigs: Animal Welfare (13 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: Defra does not hold statistics on how many pigs are reared outside or indoors. The terms free range, outdoor-reared and outdoor-bred are industry-owned marketing terms and Defra does not hold data on this type of information. To the best of our knowledge, this data is not available elsewhere.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Pigs: Animal Housing (13 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: The information requested is not held centrally and to obtain it would incur disproportionate costs as gathering the information would require each individual Control Body to contact each producer. The main principles of organic farming are that animal health and welfare are primarily promoted by good management and care of animals. Organic production employs a system that ensures animals...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Fishing Catches: Computer Software (13 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: When fully operational, it is expected that the catch recording system will generate data on approximately 200,000 fishing trips per year. This data will be hosted by the Centre for Fisheries, Environment and Aquaculture Science using Microsoft Azure. Data collected will be cross checked with sales notes and other data on the fisheries activity database using both automatic checks and manual...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Fishing Catches: Computer Software (13 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: The figure of £1.8 million includes the development of guidance and training for both fishers and staff of the Marine Management Organisation (MMO). Costs associated with hosting and managing the data as well as further hardware and software developments to ensure the MMO can compile a single record of fish caught are not included.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Fishing Catches: Computer Software (13 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: The catch recording service was developed using input from and testing with users. A ‘soft launch’ was also undertaken in 2019 where the app was tested by under-10 metre fishing vessel owners who submitted data from over 100 individual fishing trips. During the full roll out phase of the service, further feedback is being used to make additional improvements to both the guidance and...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Food: Origin Marking (13 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: At the end of the transition period, we will launch UK Geographical Indication (GI) schemes, as part of our strategy to protect regional and traditional foods. Collectively, GI products like Scotch Whisky, Melton Mowbray Pork Pies and Welsh Lamb represent 25% of the UK’s food and drink export value and are highly valued by the communities that produce them. We are committed to celebrating...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Forests (13 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: Since ash dieback was first detected in the UK, the Government has invested more than £6 million to advance our scientific understanding of this disease. We have conducted the world’s largest screening trials for tolerant trees and last month planted 3,000 trees in the first UK archive of tolerant ash. This will provide the basis for a breeding programme of tolerant ash over time and is a...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Fisheries (13 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: The Government has taken significant steps to ensure the UK can enforce its fishing rights. These include, with respect to England via the Marine Management Organisation, increasing the number of frontline warranted officers by 50% (35 people) for 2019/2020; putting in place a framework to increase aerial surveillance by a maximum of two surveillance aircraft as risk and intelligence demands;...

Support for Hill Farmers — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (12 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: I congratulate the hon. Member for Westmorland and Lonsdale (Tim Farron) on securing this debate. He is a champion for hill farming areas, and hill farming is particularly important in his constituency. As he described quite eloquently, hill farming is a critical part of some of our most important landscapes in this country. Those areas are the home of important heritage native breeds, which...

UK Fisheries — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (12 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: I begin by congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for South East Cornwall (Mrs Murray), who, as a number of hon. Members said, has been a passionate campaigner for the fishing industry; her technical knowledge of this sector is second to none. It is great that she managed to secure the debate today, because of course we would generally have an annual fisheries debate in December, in the...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Animal Welfare: Standards (12 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: Local authorities respond to individual cases of animal welfare and can allocate resources based on local priorities. Under the Animal Welfare Act 2006, local authorities in England and Wales have powers to enforce the Animal Welfare Act 2006, which includes powers of entry and seizure in order to inspect allegations of poor animal welfare and cruelty. Local authorities also have primary...
