Merchant Shipping (Homosexual Conduct) Bill (20 Jan 2017)

Alan Mak: ...for Milton Keynes South (Iain Stewart)—he is no longer in the Chamber, but he made a moving, personal and powerful speech in support of the Bill—for Shipley (Philip Davies) and for North Devon (Peter Heaton-Jones). I hope to build on their important contributions. I also congratulate the hon. Member for Cambridge (Daniel Zeichner) on his contribution and support for the Bill. Of...

Exiting the Eu: Businesses in Wales: Exiting the EU: Scotland — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (14 Dec 2016)

Peter Grant: ...that presumably benefited some other community elsewhere. The hon. Gentleman points to part of the contradiction in the way the European Union operates. Luxembourg, which does not have a fishing fleet for the very good reason that it does not have a coastline, whose population is about the same size as that of Scotland’s capital city, got more votes on adopting the common fisheries...

Scottish Parliament: Sea Fisheries and End-year Negotiations (7 Dec 2016)

Peter Chapman: ...and are leading the world in those new nets and techniques. It is that ability to innovate, which comes from an understanding of the need to protect a long-term resource, that makes our fishing fleet the envy of the rest of Europe. Of course, there are still a great many challenges facing our fishing industry. The extension of the discard ban to cod and whiting—if mishandled—could have...

Backbench Business: UK Fishing Industry (1 Dec 2016)

Oliver Colvile: I enter the debate with a certain amount of trepidation, having listened to speeches from both my hon. Friend the Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous) and my right hon. Friend the Member for North Shropshire (Mr Paterson), who is a great advocate in this regard. Before I go further, let me pay tribute to Terri Portman, in my constituency, who helped me to ensure that—hopefully—my speech...

East Anglian Fishing Fleet (16 Nov 2016)

George Eustice: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous) on securing the debate. He is a long-standing champion of the fishing industry generally and the under-10 metre sector in Lowestoft in his constituency specifically. Lowestoft is also home to CEFAS, the world’s greatest centre of excellence for fisheries science, and long may it continue to be so. My hon. Friend described...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Marine Habitats (13 Oct 2016)

Peter Aldous: Marine habitats will also be protected by the promotion of sustainable fishing, as practised by the UK inshore fleet and boats that fish out of Lowestoft. Will my right hon. Friend assure the House that she will use the opportunity presented by Brexit to secure a better deal for under-10 metre boats?

Common Fisheries Policy (Article 17) (21 Apr 2016)

Rory Stewart: ...unfortunately cannot be here, but it is a great privilege for me to be here to hear those speeches, which revealed just how much care, affection and thought my hon. Friends the Members for Waveney (Peter Aldous) and for Newbury (Richard Benyon) have put into the issues of complex fisheries. I will reply quite briefly, as this is the Minister of State’s subject rather than mine, but I...

[Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] — backbench business — Fisheries Policy (3 Dec 2015)

Jim Shannon: ...diktats from Brussels are making our fishermen’s lives much harder than they should be. First, there were the illogical quotas, on which we have all commented. Then there were the Spanish fishing fleets—the modern-day armada—robbing fish from our seas, and now we have a new threat in the form of the EU landing obligation. Although the delegation who went to the Backbench Business...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Great Western Railway Line (4 Nov 2015)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: The Department for Transport is analysing the impact of Great Western electrification delays on the configuration of the Intercity Express Programme fleet. The analysis is looking at the timetable implications including journey times and capacity. The analysis will be informed by the recommendations made by Sir Peter Hendy. No final decisions have been made.

Common Fisheries Policy (Reform) — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (10 Sep 2015)

Barry Gardiner: ...tables. No one present can remember the time when our fish stocks were at their most productive. Old postcards show harbours crammed with fishing boats, about which the hon. Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous)—for Lowestoft—and my hon. Friend the Member for Great Grimsby (Melanie Onn) were trading stories. Sepia photos show giant fish dwarfing the men who caught them, and those who...

Worcester’s Southern Link and the Carrington Bridge — [Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] (16 Jun 2015)

Robin Walker: ...morning that it is already advising on how best the widening of that causeway could be achieved without a negative impact on flooding elsewhere. I am delighted that after years of support from Sir Peter Luff I am joined for today’s debate by his successor, my hon. Friend the Member for Mid Worcestershire (Nigel Huddleston), whom I congratulate again on his election to this place. My...

Business of the House: The Economy (4 Jun 2015)

Peter Aldous: need of support. My hon. Friend the Member for Newbury (Richard Benyon) helped to reform the common fisheries policy. We now need to ensure that the small fishermen who make up the Lowestoft fleet have fair access and a fair share of quota. The proposals announced in the Queen’s Speech are welcome, but there is much work to do. No parts of the country must be forgotten. On...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (2nd Day) (28 May 2015)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...will the noble Baroness say whether in making the SDSR proposal we will follow the example of the last French White Paper and invite French participation as they invited British participation—Sir Peter Ricketts—in the process of developing their defence review or whether we think that is not something we should reciprocate? Do we intend to deepen European defence co-operation, in...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — Defence Spending (12 Mar 2015)

Philip Dunne: the issue of the 2% in a moment. We are not falling below it and we do not intend to do so in the period of the spending review. We have also presided over the modernisation of our air mobility fleet, which is now the envy of the world. Many of our NATO allies rely on our capability during operations. The Voyager air-to-air refuelling capability is being used today across Iraq by a...

Mesothelioma (Amendment) (10 Mar 2015)

Mike Kane: .... Hairdressing is not typically thought of a job that would cause such a risk. Unfortunately, asbestos has been a feature in many different workplaces, and it can take only very low level, or fleeting, exposure to cause mesothelioma. The added tragedy for Adele is that her father was also diagnosed with the disease less than six months before her own diagnosis, caused by exposure at his...

Scottish Parliament: Retail Sector (Energy Efficiency) (10 Mar 2015)

Graeme Dey: ...its bakery at Clydesmill in Cambuslang. W H Smith is sharing vehicles with other retailers. McDonald’s is recycling cooking oil and is turning it into biodiesel for use across 40 per cent of its fleet, which saves about 6,000 tonnes of carbon per annum. It has also reduced the size of bun-tray liners by 10cm, which is saving over 85 tonnes of paper each year, and by redesigning the boxes...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Taxi Licensing Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2014: Prayer of Annulment (2 Feb 2015)

Mark Durkan: ...Belfast public hire taxis will continue to be able to work from ranks and the current saloon-style private hire taxis will not. My Department has also indicated that the current Belfast public hire fleet will have grandfather rights for five years on the new wheelchair accessible specification. That means that they will not have to comply until 2020, unlike new entrants to the market who...

Backbench Business: Fishing Industry (11 Dec 2014)

George Eustice: ...quite big proposed cuts in sole in the Bristol channel, and we shall be trying to mitigate some of the impacts of that. My hon. Friend mentioned CFP reform and whether we could remove access to our fleet. However, the UK also benefits from access in the 6-to-12-mile zone of countries such as France, the Netherlands, Belgium and Ireland, and many of these agreements even pre-date the CFP,...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — Iran (UK Foreign Policy) (6 Nov 2014)

John Baron: ...or that it was doing so. The evidence suggested that it wanted to get to the point of capability—of having the option of breaking out—as has been reinforced by well respected people such as Peter Jenkins, the former UK representative to the IAEA, and Robert Kelly, a director of the governing body of that organisation. These people are not fools; they are people who have been at the...
