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...

Fisheries Bill [HL] - Second Reading (11 Feb 2020)

Lord Teverson: ...under 10 metres—are dealt with. Exactly as the noble Baroness, Lady McIntosh, said, ironically it was completely in our power to give that sector as much of our total quota as we wanted. To give George Eustice, the Fisheries Minister, his due, he started to reallocate some of that quota to the under 10 metre or inland fleet over the last couple of years. That is an important area....

Public Bill Committee: Agriculture Bill: Examination of Witnesses (11 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: Q I will ask a question that I asked the National Farmers Union earlier: if we had a world in which there were no basic payment scheme payments—no subsidy on land, tenure or occupation—and tenants came in and only paid the rent on which they could still turn a profit, what is the correct value of land rents in an upland area, or a typical lowland area?

Public Bill Committee: Agriculture Bill: Examination of Witnesses (11 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: Q Will you each tell us what you think have been the main shortcomings of the existing area-based common agricultural policy; whether we can, in the short term, modify it to make it work more smoothly; and whether you support the general premise in the Bill of, in the longer term, a move away from subsidies on land tenure to support for the delivery of public goods?

Public Bill Committee: Agriculture Bill: Examination of Witness (11 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: Q Are you broadly content with the powers in the Bill to modify the retained EU law on producer organisations in particular? Do you support the principle of moving away from the area-based subsidy payment we have now to a system of payment for public goods?

Public Bill Committee: Agriculture Bill: Examination of Witnesses (11 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: Q You will be aware that clause 9 has quite a broad power giving the Government the ability to start simplifying and sorting out some of the complexity of the legacy CAP scheme, which we can deploy from as early as next year. What would be your priorities to improve the legacy scheme in the time until the new one is rolled out?

Public Bill Committee: Agriculture Bill: Examination of Witnesses (11 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: Q39 Schedule 6 to the Bill has Northern Ireland-specific provisions, principally an ability and power to modify the legacy basic payment scheme—the common agricultural policy scheme. Will you explain what your priorities are to simplify and improve the legacy scheme? Secondly, do you have any emerging thoughts about future policy that you might make through your own Northern Ireland...

Public Bill Committee: Agriculture Bill: Examination of Witnesses (11 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: Q The Bill explicitly recognises animal health and welfare and native breeds as a public good. In recent years, we have seen a specialisation in arable in some parts of the country and a concentration of livestock in others. Some say that we need to get livestock back on the lowlands, so that we have more permanent pasture, more crop rotation, more organic matter in the soil and so on. I...

Public Bill Committee: Agriculture Bill: Examination of Witnesses (11 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: Q I want to start by asking what you consider to have been the main failures and limitations of the existing direct payment scheme, the common agricultural policy. Also, what are the main opportunities for your own particular interests, based on a new policy that rewards farmers for the delivery of public goods?

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Bovine Tuberculosis: Disease Control (11 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: All cull companies are instructed to carry out a thorough sett survey programme in the spring before each cull in their area. Animal and Plant Health Agency surveyors then carry out a Quality Assurance check on at least 5% of the land parcels at random in areas between their first and second cull.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: *No heading* (11 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: The number of dogs seized and taken into quarantine at the ports of Dover and Folkestone for each month of 2019 was as follows. Year Month Inspection location Puppies Quarantined 2019 January Eurotunnel 5 Dover 10 February Eurotunnel 2 Dover 4 March Eurotunnel 2 Dover 12 April Eurotunnel 5 Dover 5 May Eurotunnel 3 Dover 9 June Eurotunnel 7 ...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Agricultural Machinery: Exhaust Emissions (11 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: The Government is committed to take action to mitigate climate change and to adapt to its impact. We have committed significant funding for agri-tech innovation, including research and development to move us towards net zero farming systems. We will offer financial assistance to enable farmers, foresters, and growers to invest in the equipment, technology, and infrastructure that they need,...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Animal Products: Competition (11 Feb 2020)

George Eustice: US animal products are produced to a range of US animal welfare standards, partly because some US regulatory requirements apply at state level and others apply at federal level. Industry farm assurance schemes also exist in the United States and involve scheme members meeting scheme standards, which may exceed US regulatory requirements. The quality standards which apply to particular...
