Armed Forces: Foreign Pilot Training — Question (20 Jun 2011)

Lord Rotherwick: I would like to associate myself with the remarks of the Minister. I am not sure whether he is aware that I have been on an Armed Forces parliamentary scheme and visited RAF training stations. I have been made aware of the considerable number of training vacancies for fast-jet pilots. Does the Minister agree that when the UK sells military aircraft, it is prudent to have a world-class...

Petrol: Ethanol Content — Question (29 Mar 2011)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, the noble Earl is probably aware that I am an aviator. Is he also aware that there are new and old small aircraft that rely on car petrol without ethanol in it? What provisions are the Government making to ensure that there is a supply of this in the future?

Airports: London — Question (16 Mar 2011)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, in the Minister's Answer to the Question he referred to the Government bringing forward their proposals for aviation at the end of this year.

Lord Rotherwick: To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they intend to take regarding the decline of farmland bird populations.

Birds: Farmland Populations — Question (18 Jan 2011)

Lord Rotherwick: I thank my noble friend for his comforting words, which will comfort all farmers like me. But are the Government still committed to halting the decline in farmland birds by 2020? Is he aware that, in 1970, the conservation spend was around £10 million? We now spend hundreds of millions of pounds on conservation to halt this decline. Would the Government consider commissioning an experimental...

Air Passenger Duty — Question (11 Jan 2011)

Lord Rotherwick: Is the Minister not concerned that by raising the airport passenger duty in the way that is proposed he will damage the Government's objective of making this country one of the major tourist destinations? If a family of four from China travel to this country from their home, they will now pay £300, even though they are travelling economy.

Population Growth — Question for Short Debate (13 Dec 2010)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, as a farmer, I take this opportunity to make a few remarks about food security. As the world population continues to increase, the reality is that global agricultural production will be hard pressed to keep up with the ever-rising global demand for food. The world population is anticipated to rise to 9 billion by 2050. The anticipated patterns of economic development, particularly...

Arctic Ice Cap — Question for Short Debate (6 Dec 2010)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, the principal driver of the temperature of the earth is the sun and fluctuations have occurred for as long as measurements have been recorded. The Arctic is among the most sensitive to temperature fluctuations and consequent changes in the ice cap. Notwithstanding the downsides of the melting of the ice cap, one of the upsides, as mentioned by the noble Lord, Lord Jay, is the...

Strategic Defence and Security Review — Motion to Take Note (12 Nov 2010)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, like my noble friend the Minister, I am proud to have served in the past with the Life Guards. At present, I am fortunate to be part of the Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme, spending 20 or so days with the Royal Air Force. The scheme, conceived by its chairman, Neil Thorne, aims to give parliamentarians a better understanding of our Armed Forces. To date, I have had the opportunity...

Aviation: Regulatory Framework — Question (30 Mar 2010)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper and declare an interest as a director of the Light Aviation Association and vice-president of the General Aviation Alliance, both of which are non-paid.

Aviation: Regulatory Framework — Question (30 Mar 2010)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord for his reply. This consultation on the implementation of Sir Joseph Pilling's views on the strategic review of the CAA 2008 will result in major changes to the mandate of the CAA by including consumer interests, as well as its existing role of safety regulator. Why was there no consultation on Pilling's major changes with Better Regulation Executive...

Aviation: Air Quality — Question (27 Oct 2009)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, is the Minister aware that Professor Helen Muir, who is responsible for the research of the Cranfield project, said last year in a magazine called Flight International that such fume events have occurred in the research? She goes on to mention, "a wide range of volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds including benzene", and finishes by saying, "including organophosphates". We...

Economy — Question (26 Oct 2009)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, in 1997 we were told that we were the fourth largest economy. Just this week we have been told that our economy has slipped way down the tables, below even Italy. Are we really doing so well?

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...

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...

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...

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?

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,...
