George Eustice: ...animal welfare standards in trade negotiations, and that remains a commitment of the Government. There are opportunities for our agricultural sector in the US, particularly in sectors such as dairy, and possibly in sectors such as lamb as well. My colleagues in the Department for International Trade will obviously lead on these matters once we leave the European Union, but there will be...

Scottish Parliament: Rural Development (Funding) (19 Jan 2017)

Willie Coffey: ...and I commend it to colleagues. Ayrshire and the south-west of Scotland—in particular, Dumfries and Galloway—play a huge part in the agricultural economic landscape of rural Scotland, with 80 per cent of Scotland’s dairy herd and nearly 800 specialist dairy farms being located in that wonderful part of our country, so it is important that the potential consequences of the...

Leaving the Eu: the Rural Economy (17 Jan 2017)

Jim Shannon: ...State and the Minister of State to do the job that we want them to do. We look forward to their doing it, and we support them entirely. When the Brexit vote took place, I met many of the agri-food industries in my area, and I arranged for the Secretary of State to come to Northern Ireland to discuss their needs in a post-Brexit market. Their view is clear, and the Minister knows it. I know...

Scottish Parliament: Climate Targets (14 Dec 2016)

Mr Mark Ruskell: ...also concluded that an all-energy target of 50 per cent by 2030 is a desirable yet achievable stretch target. Such a target would provide confidence and certainty, as our early targets on renewable electricity did for industry. Of course, targets on their own are not enough. I accept the point that was raised by the minister in last week’s debate that research surrounding...

Cancer Strategy (8 Dec 2016)

David Tredinnick: ...afternoon. Like most colleagues, I have a big enough postbag already and I do not want to hear the defence. Anyone attending a big clinic in America, such as the Mayo Clinic, can say goodbye to dairy and sugar, and hello to more juices. The Haven in Fulham certainly uses a lot of raw juices and raw vegetables. Diet is absolutely fundamental. When I worked in the computer industry, we used...

Food Waste - Question (7 Dec 2016)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: ..., from farmer to producer and from retailer to consumer. It goes further than before, with targets to be reached by 2025 including a 20% reduction in UK food and drink waste.

Seasonal Agricultural Workers Scheme — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (30 Nov 2016)

Jim Shannon: ...Ireland and throughout the whole of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Those companies could not operate without a seasonal workforce, and I know they are not alone. The NFU said that the industry currently uses about 80,000 seasonal workers, and that figure is expected to rise to 95,000 by 2021. The projected figures show that we need more seasonal workers; we must...

Rural Bus Services - Question for Short Debate (24 Nov 2016)

Baroness Jones of Whitchurch: ...example, a snapshot of rural living shows that employment opportunities are all too often limited to low-skilled, low-paid, insecure work. Meanwhile, the farmers are having a tough time too. The dairy industry, for example, is caught in a perfect storm of global market saturation and declining milk prices. At the same time, price volatility is now a widespread hazard. Understandably, it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Milk (24 Nov 2016)

George Eustice: My hon. Friend has made a good point. These have been two very difficult years for the dairy industry. However, I think we should give credit where it is due, and acknowledge that many of the major supermarkets offer their farmers aligned contracts that are linked to the cost of production. Those farmers have continued to obtain good prices over the last two years. Nevertheless, they are a...

Agricultural Sector (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (22 Nov 2016)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: ...and transparency that gives confidence to consumers. They also play a vital role in managing our countryside. I acknowledge the considerable price volatility that farmers endure.

These have pushed down milk...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Agriculture: EU Funding (21 Nov 2016)

Michelle McIlveen: ...for providing the opportunity to discuss this. Mr McGlone is not alone in representing a rural constituency. I, too, represent a largely rural area and one that has a dependency on the fishing industry. I am very mindful of the issues that affect that industry also. I agree with Members that we need to be strategic in our thinking and develop a strategy to provide for and to secure the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Agriculture: EU Funding (21 Nov 2016)

Gerry Mullan: Like previous Members who have spoken, as an MLA for a constituency with a strong agricultural presence, I welcome the opportunity to contribute to the debate. Our agri-food industry is a key driver for the Northern Ireland economy, with the farming and food processing industries generating turnover in 2014 of around 5 billion. The Going for Growth strategy is hugely important, as it...

Soil Health — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (17 Nov 2016)

Rebecca Pow: ...route of monoculture and least-cost production, and our European Community policies have encouraged that. In fairness, lots of farmers are already doing exceptionally good work.

At the Dairy UK breakfast this week, I met a fascinating chap called Lyndon Edwards,...

Scottish Parliament: Single Market and Trade (European Union Referendum) (15 Nov 2016)

Emma Harper: ...food and drink sector. I am acutely aware that the best way to protect the interests of my constituents, and the rural economy, is to maintain that membership. I have spoken to several farmers and dairymen who tell me that the threat of a hard Brexit is very likely to damage their business. They tell me that although subsidy is important and it supports and allows for new ventures and...

Defence Estate: Exiting the EU and Workers’ Rights (7 Nov 2016)

Jonathan Edwards: ..., as was evidenced by the recent court case over the agricultural workers dispute. Returning to trade, we have heard a duality of messages from Brexiters since the referendum. There was supposed to be a protectionist paradise. Such arguments held considerable sway in the steel industry in south Wales in the face of Chinese dumping. Of course, dairy farmers face competition from Ireland and...
