Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Antimicrobials: Procurement (22 Sep 2022)

Robert Jenrick: In July 2019, a pilot project was launched to develop and test a ‘subscription-style’ evaluation and payment model for antibiotics in England, which would pay pharmaceutical companies for access to antibiotics based on its value to the National Health Service, rather than the volume used. This payment model aims to incentivise pharmaceutical companies to develop new antimicrobials,...

Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill (6 Sep 2022)

Paul Blomfield: ...across business and industry on the UK Trade and Business Commission.

They want to reduce antibiotic use and further increase animal welfare, but they are doing that now on wafer-thin margins. As one farmer put it in what is probably a very agricultural farming way, “We have no fat...

Australia-UK Free Trade Agreement: Scrutiny (19 Jul 2022)

Clive Efford: ...Parliament. The way the Government are behaving is a disgrace. The Minister knows that there is widespread concern about the lowering of standards in this trade deal, particularly around the use of antibiotics on livestock and harmful pesticides. That is one of the key reasons why it is right that this House should have the opportunity to debate what is in the trade deal. Will the Minister...

Global Vaccine Disparities (13 Jul 2022)

John Martin McDonnell: ...just about covid. I believe that the way we produce medicines is broken. I ask the Minister to talk to Lord Jim O’Neill, who has been trying to get the pharmaceutical corporations to produce the antibiotics that our medical establishment has depended on for many years. He has been trying to engage in a dialogue to change practices within the pharmaceutical industry, but the corporations...

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: ...an east London sewage works. Any release of sewage has potential public health implications, but this incident is particularly concerning. The noble Baroness, Lady Jones, and others, talked about antibiotics being in water and the serious health concerns around that. As she said, this is about having good, clean, healthy water. I want to think about the progress on tackling this issue. It...

Strategy for International Development (6 Jul 2022)

Fleur Anderson: ...’s 46 least developed countries lack clean water or decent toilets, which is causing preventable deaths and accelerating the spread of antimicrobial resistance as health workers are forced to use antibiotics in lieu of good hygiene.

Public Bill Committee: Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill: Clause 3 - Restrictions on release of precision bred organism in England (5 Jul 2022)

Kerry McCarthy: ...us to accelerate that process even further, the sheer number of animals involved could lead to welfare concerns. There were also some very good arguments that gene editing could reduce the need for antibiotics. It would allow us to deal with disease at source, so we would not have to worry so much about disease spreading. Obviously, reducing antibiotics use would be very good, given the...

Public Bill Committee: Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill: Clause 1 - Precision Bred Organism (5 Jul 2022)

Jo Churchill: ...devastating disease, taking hold of pig populations both in the intensive and extensive rearing systems across the UK, and indeed across the world.

I ask Members to...

Public Bill Committee: Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (28 Jun 2022)

Kerry McCarthy: ...Joanna was saying, I want to try to unpick this. It has been mooted that one of the benefits of the Bill is that it could result in the breeding of more disease-resistant animals and in less use of antibiotics in livestock management. The downside is that that could pave the way for more intensive farming, because disease obviously spreads when lots of animals are herded together. That...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill (27 Jun 2022)

Jim Shannon: ...proposed by the Bill. That is very positive. Believe it or not, but from dog biscuits to daffodils, from picture frames to potato bread, from engine parts to eggs, and from artificial flowers to antibiotics, the EU has had ample opportunity to change its approach and allow trade to continue unhampered. The EU is like a giant sponge: it wants to take everything from you, but it does not...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department of Health and Social Care: Evaluation and Purchase of Antimicrobials (20 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: The ability of bacteria - and other types of pathogen - to develop and propagate resistance to the available therapeutic drugs and medicines, such as antibiotics, used to treat them is a significant and growing threat.

Pig Farming - Motion to Take Note (16 Jun 2022)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: ...to more than £2 billion. I agree with the noble Baroness, Lady McIntosh of Pickering, that imported pigmeat presents huge issues.

UK pig producers, even under our current intensive system, have made great progress on this, with antibiotic use in the pig sector reducing by 62% from 2015, according to the...

Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill (15 Jun 2022)

Helen Morgan: ...science-based approach to technologies such as genetic editing for precision breeding.

I welcome that the Advisory Committee on Releases to the Environment and the...

Vaccinations - Question (15 Jun 2022)

Lord Kamall: ..., co-operation on health issues. I have been in G7 and G20 meetings on this. One of the big issues we must all look at is AMR—antimicrobial resistance—and how we can, first, stop the use of antibiotics in both human and animal health and, at the same time, help those countries that use quite a lot to build capacity.
