Renaissance of East Anglian Fisheries Study (5 Nov 2019)

George Eustice: ...privileged to be in the final Westminster Hall debate not only of this Session but of this Parliament, as we prepare for a general election. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous), with whom I have had many debates on these issues. He has been a champion for the inshore fleet, particularly around East Anglia. Of course, his constituency is also home to the...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Freedom of the Press (1): Freedom of the Press (1) (26 Sep 2019)

Peter Whittle: ...Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu issued a statement, warning that any newspaper contemplating publishing leaked documents of any sort may find itself facing a criminal investigation. Given that Fleet Street editors are not usually signatories to the Official Secrets Act, this statement appears to be an act of naked intimidation of our free press. Mr Basu subsequently backed down, stating...

Thomas Cook - Statement (25 Sep 2019)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...aviation and travel organisations when they become insolvent. This brings me on to the second major area commented on by the noble Lord, Lord Rosser: the airline insolvency review, which we asked Peter Bucks to undertake after Monarch. He submitted his report to the department in May this year. It is a long report; I am sure the noble Lord has read it. It has many different proposals—it...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: .... Unless there is a note that lists that, I do not have any intelligence on the matter. I am advised that the Foreign Secretary intends to wind up the debate for the Government. It is open to him, fleet of foot and intellectually dextrous as he is, to leap to his feet and deliver his oration now in substitution for the opportunity later, but he is not under any obligation to do so....

Sale of New Petrol and Diesel Cars and Vans (4 Jul 2019)

Karl Turner: I start by congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for Hove (Peter Kyle) on securing and introducing this incredibly important debate, the context of which is the climate crisis and this Government’s failure to respond to it with any real ambition. As my hon. Friend mentioned at the outset, while we have been debating the issue the BBC has reported that sales of low emission cars have...

Backbench Business: Combat Air Strategy — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (27 Jun 2019)

Carol Monaghan: ...of the spending within the Department. Frankly, we are seeing too much of a siloed approach to spending, not just in Defence but in many Government Departments. I will briefly highlight the fleet solid supply ships, which we are talking about building outwith the UK. Given the economic impact of building in our own shipyards, it is ludicrous to consider countries such as South Korea, with...

D-day: 75th Anniversary - Motion to Take Note (4 Jun 2019)

Viscount Bridgeman: ...: the intensive training given to all formations that were likely to be involved in the Normandy landings. I am most grateful to the Minister for highlighting this point. I pay tribute to Mr Peter Caddick-Adams, a summary of whose findings appear in this month’s BBC History magazine. Broadly, the main areas where this training took place were, for the British forces, that surrounding...

Scottish Parliament: Free Bus Travel (Under-25s) (20 Mar 2019)

Peter Chapman: ...colleague Jamie Greene, which recognises the merit in increased concessionary travel but also recognises that that comes at a cost. It equally recognises the concerning decrease in Scotland’s bus fleet and patronage. That decrease needs to be addressed to help to resolve the problems of gridlocked traffic and high levels of pollution in our towns and cities.

Leaving the Eu: Fishing (13 Mar 2019)

Luke Pollard: ...are using the powers they already have to make the lives of fishers better. It is worth saying that the Labour party does not oppose the Fisheries Bill. However, like the hon. Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous), who mirrors lots of my views about fisheries, there are still improvements that should be made to it. In particular, we need to consider how the Fisheries Bill can create truly...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries (12 Mar 2019)

Peter Chapman: .... That may or may not be a useful aim, but I wonder how he proposes to achieve it. Secondly, one of the biggest threats to our fishermen’s future is the discard ban, with choke species tying the fleet up. What new initiatives and management structures does he plan to put in place to make the discard ban both effective and workable? Alongside those important questions, there is much to...

Exiting the European Union (11 Mar 2019)

Peter Grant: ...still have the same rotten deal taking Scotland out of the European Union against the express wish of 62% of our sovereign national citizens; we still have the same sell-out of Scotland’s fishing fleet—exactly the kind of sell-out that the Secretary of State for Scotland promised to resign over and still has not; and no doubt in tomorrow’s debate and possibly later in the week, we...

Health and Social Care Committee: Carrier Strike Strategy (28 Feb 2019)

Martin Docherty: ...six available subs.” I hope the Minister takes that on board and considers how we will rectify a situation in which we think we are unable to deliver that for two carriers. In addition, Professor Peter Roberts of the Royal United Services Institute stated: “it’s clear that the decision to pursue two carriers at the expense of everything else in defence has weakened the defence...

Business of the House (Today): No Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (16 Jan 2019)

George Freeman: .... This party, not the Opposition, made it clear that parity between mental and physical health must be achieved. We have introduced a pioneering industrial strategy that has been welcomed by Peter Mandelson—once a distinguished member of the Labour party’s Front Bench—and I am proud to have played my part in it. We have also committed to spend 2% of GDP on defence and have launched...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Distribution of fishing opportunities (13 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: ...judged the FQA system as not being fit for purpose. It has led to the trading and renting out of quota at punitive and prohibitive prices, solely for profit and often at great cost to the inshore fleet. Once environmental, social and economic criteria are established in law as the priority for determining future quota distribution, the environmental and social criteria should be...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Penalties for offences (13 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: ...that impact, in 2000 the EU created a closed area of 20,000 sq km extending offshore from the coast of north-east Scotland to Northumberland. It is a box that keeps the Danish sand eel fishing fleet, which has almost all the EU sand eel quota, away from sensitive seabed colonies. This industrial seabed fishery continues elsewhere in the North sea, mainly on the Dogger Bank, of which the UK...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Fisheries objectives (11 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: ...in an office overlooking the trawl dock—but no fish are landed in Lowestoft. The trawlers in the Lowestoft PO land fish predominantly in the Netherlands. We are left with a small inshore fleet that lives a hand-to-mouth existence, unsure what quota of fish it will be able to catch from month to month. We might say it lives off the scraps from a rich man’s table. With that in mind, the...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (11 Dec 2018)

Peter Chapman: ...cod and hake. The landing obligation is explicit that catches of all regulated species—those that have quotas—must be brought ashore. Once the quota for a choke species has been caught, the fleet must stop fishing. There is, therefore, a significant risk that tens of millions of pounds’ worth of fish could go uncaught as a result. The cabinet secretary’s motion speaks about...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of witness (6 Dec 2018)

Griffin Carpenter: That is a good question. The line that has always been used on quota allocation in the past was, “You’re robbing Peter to pay Paul, and we don’t want that in the industry.” Now we have the idea of a Brexit dividend of extra quota, we are robbing Pierre to pay Paul, so that is fine. We are fine as long as Peter is protected. The idea of quota shares is actually a...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witness (4 Dec 2018)

...in 2012 and from legal advice subsequently that that is entirely practical. In fact, the Faroe Islands has just instigated a similar sort of system. Rather than us arguing that one should rob Peter to pay Paul, it is at heart the allocation system that is at fault. It is based on historical rights. As I said, I go back far too many years in this business. In the 1990s, the Government said...

Public Bill Committee: Finance (No.3) Bill: Optional remuneration arrangements: arrangements for cars and vans (27 Nov 2018)

Peter Dowd: ...2017, such activity contributed £1.6 billion to GDP, supported 25,400 jobs and raised £400 million in UK tax receipts. The rental and leasing industry is estimated to have replenished 25% of its fleet in 2017, supporting auctioneers and dealerships and contributing £1.7 billion to GDP. That equates to 28,200 jobs and £469 million in tax receipts. There is also a positive environmental...
