Armed Forces: European Rapid Reaction Force — Question (3 Feb 2009)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, today Reuters reports in the newspaper that a battalion of French and German soldiers is to be deployed in Strasbourg. Indeed, it is the first time that German troops have been deployed in Strasbourg. Who deploys this force? Do the German Government or the French Government deploy it, or is it a European force?

Conservation: Farmland Birds — Question (24 Mar 2009)

Lord Rotherwick: To ask Her Majesty's Government what outcome they expect from the South West Farmland Birds Initiative which is being carried out in conjunction with Natural England, the Cotswolds Conservation Board, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and other organisations.

Conservation: Farmland Birds — Question (24 Mar 2009)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his reply. I declare as a farmer and a landowner that it is important that the decline in farmland birds be reversed. However, how can that decline be reversed when this initiative is delivering only on habitat and does not include the predation of farmland birds? An RSPB report said that there is growing evidence, and good evidence, that ground-laying birds...

Swine Flu: Aircraft — Question (5 May 2009)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, does the noble Lord agree that most of the air in an airliner's cabin comes through the bleed air off one of the jet engines? Indeed, there are grave concerns over the air toxicity in airlines at this time. A survey is being undertaken by the Cranfield Institute of Technology on this air toxicity, which rather goes to show that the air filters do not work properly in planes. Will he...

Armed Forces: Parachuting — Question (14 Oct 2009)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, the Minister talks about developing parachute training. Weston-on-the-Green near Otmoor in Oxfordshire is one of the main sites used for parachute training. The Government have recently been touting this as an eco site. Although it will not go forward in the first round of ecotowns, what provision have the Government made in the event of Weston-on-the-Green becoming an ecotown so...

Flooding: Defence (9 Jan 2008)

Lord Rotherwick: asked Her Majesty's Government: What steps they are taking to improve the conditions of the internal rivers and their flood plains in England and Wales.

Flooding: Defence (9 Jan 2008)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord for his Answer. I am a riparian owner in north Oxfordshire, which is classed as a low flood-risk area yet saw some of the worst of the flooding in 2007. The Environment Agency shows more concern for the bats, voles and otters than it seemingly does for the management of our river systems, unlike the National Rivers Authority, which used to do such an excellent...

Squirrels (6 Feb 2008)

Lord Rotherwick: asked Her Majesty's Government: What impact studies are carried out prior to licences being given for the release of grey squirrels into the wild?

Squirrels (6 Feb 2008)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his Answer. In his reply to the Question on grey squirrels asked by the noble Lady, Lady Saltoun, on 23 January, he emphasised that only six squirrels have been released. However, is he aware of Joan Ruddock's letter to Mr Adam Afriyie in another place on 18 December in which, as Minister with responsibility for policy in this area, she states that Natural...

Consumer Credit (12 May 2008)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, the Minister says that inflation is at only 2.5 per cent. Why is it that fuel, mortgages and a range of other things have increased by perhaps 20 per cent or 25 per cent? It is just not consistent with saying that the rate of inflation is only 2.5 per cent.

Environment Agency: Flood Management (20 May 2008)

Lord Rotherwick: asked Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the risks of flooding from inland rivers in the United Kingdom and the role of the Environment Agency as the delegated body for managing it. My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister and other noble Lords for taking part in this debate. Last year, great swathes of this country suffered considerable flooding. I live and farm near...

Planning: Eco-towns (2 Jun 2008)

Lord Rotherwick: asked Her Majesty's Government: What aspects of planning policy guidance 3 and planning policy statement 3 apply to the planning of eco-towns.

Planning: Eco-towns (2 Jun 2008)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness for her reply. Why is it, therefore, that Weston Otmoor is being considered as an eco-town when it is not consistent with PPG3, as a large part of it is the grass airfield of RAF Weston on the Green, used for parachute training and for community gliding? Further, surely the proposal is also contrary to PPG17, planning for open spaces, PPG13 for transport,...

Planning: Eco-towns (2 Jun 2008)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I am afraid that this is rather technical and I would not like to get it wrong. Surely it is contrary to PPG2, presumption against development within the green belt. Furthermore, the proposal concerns part of a SSSI. Is not that proposal seriously flaunting the Government's own planning provision?

Iraq: Military Casualties (20 Jan 2005)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, could I clarify that? Are Ministers not planning any future visits to the wounded from Iraq, or are there planned visits?

Bovine Tuberculosis (26 Jan 2005)

Lord Rotherwick: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they propose to change their policy regarding the culling of badgers in areas where bovine tuberculosis is rife.

Bovine Tuberculosis (26 Jan 2005)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I am grateful for the noble Lord's Answer. He is aware of the University of Dublin's five-year tuberculosis trials in Donegal, but is he aware that those trials have conclusively reduced the incidence of TB in cattle by 96 per cent? As the Government are going to spend £2 billion on this over the next 10 years, should they wait any longer to implement such trials in this country?...

Railways Bill (10 Feb 2005)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I thank the Minister for introducing the Bill. It is a Bill that has been the subject of lively debate in another place and I am sure that we will see some continuation of that in your Lordships' House. It has been suggested that the Bill has been introduced to put right aspects of privatisation. I would like to reiterate the point already made in another place that that is not so....

Railways Bill (10 Feb 2005)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord and I am sure that he will see that everything becomes clear later on, particularly regarding accountability. There will be serious and unconsidered consequences, especially in accountability. As I understand it, we can hold a Minister in this House accountable—or at least try to—for trains or railways in England and Wales, but not Scotland or...

Lords Amendment (7 Apr 2005)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, we remain baffled and perplexed as to why the Minister will not accept the amendment moved by the noble Lord, Lord Bradshaw. It was changed to take account of the concerns raised on Report, but the Minister ignored those changes in his response to the amendment at Third Reading yesterday. The Government's position flew in the face of local communities. As most PTEs are Labour...
