Delegated Legislation: Fire Safety and Cladding (23 Jan 2019)

Sue Hayman: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I wish to correct today’s record. Earlier, when the motion on private Members’ Bills was being discussed in a point of order, the hon. Member for Chichester said that amendment (b) had been proposed by the Labour spokesperson for the environment, which is, of course, me. I was quite surprised to hear that, as it was not something that I had done....

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (17 Jan 2019)

Sue Hayman: On Tuesday, the National Audit Office published a highly critical report on the Government’s monitoring of the natural environment. The report states that DEFRA “has not…done enough to engage other parts of government with its approach”. So what confidence can we have in the Secretary of State, who is clearly busy doing other things today, to deliver his promised green Brexit?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (17 Jan 2019)

Sue Hayman: That is all very well, but what we need is not warm words. We get many, many warm words from this Department but very little real action, and we need action to protect our natural environment and to bear down on climate change. So what is actually happening in response to this report?

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Sue Hayman: I was relieved to hear that the Secretary of State’s son is making an excellent recovery. I am sure that many Members were shocked when they heard about the accident. We are here today to debate environmental protections following Brexit. We are at a critical time for the future of Britain’s environment and the Government must be ambitious when it comes to protecting our environmental...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Sue Hayman: I thank my hon. Friend for her intervention. A number of amendments have been tabled to the Agriculture Bill and we are looking at them closely. Her new clause is important, and we are taking a close look at it. It would be useful to have a conversation with her about it at a later date.

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Sue Hayman: I have absolutely no idea what the hon. Gentleman is talking about.

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Sue Hayman: I am sure that the hon. Gentleman is aware that my party does not believe that the agreement on the table is good enough. If it is voted down next week, as many in this House believe it will be, we should go back to the country and have a general election, so that my party can actually look forward to working for a better deal.

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Sue Hayman: I will make some progress, because many Members want to speak and the Secretary of State was generous with his time. The Prime Minister said that the environment Bill will be world leading, so where is the duty and obligation within the agreement to reduce the UK’s global environmental footprint? Labour wants to see good-quality, affordable food available to all but that must not come at...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Sue Hayman: Labour does not want no deal. We understand the risks that that would bring, which is why we are saying that if the Prime Minister’s deal is voted down next week, we should go for a general election. However, we also think that the Prime Minister has had nearly two years to negotiate this deal. She could have had something much better. It is unacceptable that we have so little after two years.

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Sue Hayman: Our position at the moment is to go for a general election so that we can negotiate an improved deal.

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Sue Hayman: I will make some progress because many people want to speak. The Government have failed to put in place any measures in the Trade or Agriculture Bills to ensure that all food and agricultural products imported into the UK will be produced to standards equivalent to our domestic ones. We want British food production to go from strength to strength while protecting our precious natural...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Sue Hayman: My hon. Friend makes an important point. It is critical that we do not allow our standards to fall.

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Sue Hayman: I think we have made it pretty clear why we are not supporting the withdrawal agreement. My right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) made that quite clear in the debate yesterday and I do not want to get all into those arguments again when they have already been clearly expressed on the Floor of the House.

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Sue Hayman: Absolutely. My hon. Friend puts the argument in a nutshell. The political declaration contains only one paragraph referring to protecting rights and standards, which just shows how low down the list of priorities they are for the Government. What do the Government have planned to replace current EU funding for nature conservation, low-carbon infrastructure, and environmental research and...

Diabetes — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (9 Jan 2019)

Sue Hayman: The right hon. Gentleman is making incredibly important points. He mentioned the deputy leader of the Labour party, who turned his life around through diet and exercise—nutrition. That is an incredibly important issue in my constituency. Throughout west Cumbria, we have serious levels of diabetes, health deprivation and obesity. I thank the right hon. Gentleman for making what is an...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Air Pollution (29 Nov 2018)

Sue Hayman: The Government’s plans to tackle air pollution are unravelling into a shambolic and piecemeal mess. Exposure to fine particulate matter is linked to poor health, including asthma, heart disease, stroke and lung cancer, and new evidence shows impacts on diabetes, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. We must ensure that we have the highest standards of public health, so will the Minister tell us...

Fisheries Bill (21 Nov 2018)

Sue Hayman: I join the Secretary of State in his words of support for all those who work in the fishing industry. It is important that we recognise them. Amid all the ongoing chaos that we have seen over the Brexit negotiations, Ministers have consistently identified leaving the common fisheries policy as one of the few policy areas in which the Government’s deal can deliver. When the White Paper was...

Fisheries Bill (21 Nov 2018)

Sue Hayman: We know that coastal communities have suffered from austerity, and I will be talking about that further. However, I do not think it is appropriate to talk about individual cases. However, having said what I have just said, we do not oppose the Bill at this stage, as it has turned out to be a mostly enabling Bill for making future decisions. It is clear that the Government have some way to go...

Fisheries Bill (21 Nov 2018)

Sue Hayman: We are looking for the Government to address the historic imbalance and inequality in the fishing industry that these quotas show. The companies that we have looked at have benefited from a system that has led to a long-term consolidation of quota into the hands of a very few operators. We are very keen to look at ways in which that can be changed.

Fisheries Bill (21 Nov 2018)

Sue Hayman: My hon. Friend makes a very important point. We would certainly support increasing co-operatives. I understand that there is an opportunity to double the number of co-operatives if we go about it in the right way. That was an incredibly important point.
