Scottish Parliament: Rural Economy (European Union Referendum) (27 Sep 2016)

Emma Harper: Brexit has not actually happened yet—everybody really needs to pay attention to that. The Bank of Scotland continues to look at information and it will have more next year. However, the issue depends on what happens in future.

Policing and Crime Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (18 Jul 2016)

the Earl of Lytton: My Lords, I declare such interests as I have outside the work of this House only in respect of the fact that I hold a firearms licence, although your Lordships will be glad to know that it is not on firearms that I intend to speak today.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Food: Origin Marking (11 Jul 2016)

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (5 Jul 2016)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: ..., on one point: we should not turn our back on Europe. I hope we will have co-operation with Europe, but that is not the same thing as leaving the European Union.

Baroness Jenkin of Kennington: My Lords, I would like to thank the noble Lords who are speaking in this debate; it is especially appreciated as the timing is not what we originally expected.

The Secretary of State Was Asked: British-produced Meat (5 May 2016)

George Eustice: We have some of the best native breeds of cattle, pigs and sheep in the world, and we want to promote quality meat that is produced in the United Kingdom. Because we secured country of origin labelling legislation, such labelling is now mandatory on poultry, pigs and lamb, as well as on beef. Two weeks ago, the Secretary of State was in the United States, working to open the market there for...

UK Dairy Sector — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (20 Apr 2016)

Nick Smith: ...who have intervened and made contributions this afternoon. Time is short, so I cannot mention everyone, but the hon.

Access to Medical Treatments (Innovation) Bill: Second Reading (26 Feb 2016)

Lord Prior of Brampton: ...friend Lord Saatchi. This is his Bill really. Before I was in this place, I remember listening on the radio in a casual way to the arguments being batted around, and, without knowing the details of his earlier Bill, the need for a quantum change in the rate of innovation and adoption of new medicines and products in this country resonated with me. I have just come back from a trip to the...

EU Membership (Audit of Costs and Benefits) Bill (26 Feb 2016)

Tobias Ellwood: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. I would argue that the civil servants we send there are among the best in the world.

I must say, however, that we are granted 12% of the jobs in the EU, in the various Commission roles and so forth,...

I have focused on resolving that issue since EU country-of-origin labelling began to take effect on this...

Access to Medical Treatments (Innovation) Bill: Clause 2 — Database of innovative treatments (29 Jan 2016)

George Freeman: My hon. Friend has made a typically interesting and important point. I pay tribute to his work on mental health.
