Food: Imports (23 May 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I thank the Minister for the Answer. Is it not a fact that the farming industry is in a precarious state, with one-third of farmers receiving less than £5,000 in income a year? Surely the deteriorating situation in the farming industry requires proper financial viability in farming over the next five years, otherwise the employment in the UK provided by the farming industry—1.8...

NHS: Dentistry (18 Apr 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, is it correct that more than 2 million people do not have access to an NHS dentist?

Aviation: Diversion of Stricken Aircraft (21 Mar 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether the provisions for directing stricken aircraft to diversion airports are satisfactory.

Aviation: Diversion of Stricken Aircraft (21 Mar 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his Answer. However, is he aware that in the past five years 39 aircraft such as airliners have declared emergencies—technical not medical emergencies—and have either landed at Heathrow or been diverted to Heathrow or Gatwick? Is it right that stricken aircraft that are probably in immediate danger should let down over densely populated areas such as the...

Aviation: Diversion of Stricken Aircraft (21 Mar 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, is the Minister aware that the air traffic controller guidance states that it is desirable that aircraft should not be routed over densely populated areas in emergencies? Is he aware also that the Air Accidents Investigation Branch asks whether sufficient guidance is provided on the avoidance of built-up areas when vectoring aircraft in an emergency?

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (28 Feb 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: I rise briefly to support my noble friend Lady Byford in her amendments and the other noble Lords whose names are added to them. I do not wish to articulate the argument, because it has already been said well enough. I also rise to support my noble friend Lord Goschen. Surely it must be right to be certain that we do not abuse the ability of the people concerned to get to their homes. He...

Police: Reorganisation (28 Feb 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, will the Minister answer the second part of the question asked by my noble friend Lord Elton on the consultation that was widely held up and down the country?

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (27 Feb 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: I rise to support my noble friends Lady Byford and Lord Peel and all those who have argued against that environmental pest, the grey squirrel. It seems extraordinary that we are creating a body, Natural England, to look after the wildlife of the UK. We talk about pesticides that are harmful to wildlife, the protection of birds and all the rest, yet we have done virtually nothing about that...

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (27 Feb 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: I support my noble friend Lord Peel. I have written to the chairman of the Forestry Commission asking him whether, in the magazine that it publishes so frequently, in telling people where they can go for recreation, it could also inform them of the pests in the forest, such as the grey squirrel, so that the general public would have a better understanding of the damage that it does. If the...

Home Information Packs (14 Feb 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: asked Her Majesty's Government: Why the planned home information packs do not inform house buyers if their new home has been built on a contaminated land site.

Home Information Packs (14 Feb 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that Answer. Is it not the case that the environmental search is not included in the home information pack because Defra made a submission asking for it not to be included, based on the fact that only 100 of the 100,000 contaminated sites around England and Wales were registered with local authorities, as they are required to be under the Environmental...

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (1 Feb 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: I have great sympathy with my noble friend Lady Byford's amendment. Whether correctly drafted or not, such an amendment is needed. Do we really need to go down this route? The briefing from English Nature says that there certainly are areas that have been given exclusion; 44 SSSIs out of over 1,000 qualify for access and little over 1 per cent of SSSIs have been given partial exemption—I...

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (30 Jan 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: I am sorry to be late in rising to support my noble friend Lady Byford. We come back to the theme of trying to make quite sure that we understand what the Government mean in this Bill, and therefore trying to wheedle out of them exactly what it is they mean, then we can proceed along the lines of agreeing or not. Where the amendment leaves out "conserving" and inserts "protecting", I go back...

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (30 Jan 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: I should like to raise a small point that I failed to raise before. I do not know if the Minister was aware of it, but the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister produced, either today or recently, a planning policy statement on delivering sustainable development. Under the heading: "Protection and enhancement of the environment", paragraph 17 says: "The Government is committed to protecting and...

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (30 Jan 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: I support my noble friend Lady Byford. Last time we were in Committee, the Minister gave me a definition of conserving and enhancing. He said, "conserving means protecting from harm or destruction".—[ Official Report, 24/1/06; col. 1129.] I hope that I do not get noble Lords in a muddle because I seem to get in a big muddle when I go through this. I think that that definition is wrong...

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (24 Jan 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: I have great sympathy with the amendment of my noble friend Lord Dixon-Smith. I am not totally attracted to the word "developed", as the noble Lord, Lord Judd, said. I am not sure that this is a natural word for our English landscape. I am also not attracted to the word "enhanced", which I also have difficulty over. There are already very good examples around our landscape of climate change....

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (24 Jan 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: I—

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (24 Jan 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: I am grateful to the noble Baroness, but she makes my point very well herself. People in this House give up a couple of days of their time when they could be doing a highly paid job and gaining a pension for that. They do it for the honour. We feel, like my noble friend Lord Peel, that we are considering a similar case. Working for Natural England, looking after the jewels of our countryside,...

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (24 Jan 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: The whole House accepts that Ministers are in that situation as well.

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (24 Jan 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: I declare my interests as a farmer who deals with SSSIs and nature reserves. This name, which has been explained as natural yoghurt among other things, sticks in my gullet. English Nature, as it is now called, spends most of its time asking to alter the countryside. Therefore, I can hardly see how you can go about doing business with it in enhancing the countryside. The name "Natural England"...
