Owen Paterson: The 'unknown Cabinet minister’ has ...


... a fight on his hands Owen Paterson, a countryman and trenchant Eurosceptic, is uniquely qualified to head the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Congratulations to all those green campaigners who were quick to spot what could turn out to be the most significant of all the new appointments in last week’s ministerial reshuffle. While media attention was largely focused elsewhere, all the usual suspects, from the BBC to The Guardian, were seething with indignation over David Cameron’s surprising choice of Owen Paterson, the “unknown Cabinet ...


Owen Paterson becomes new Environment Secretary


Climate change skeptic Owen Paterson has been promoted to be the new Secretary of State for the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. Mr Paterson, who is a staunch right-winger, has previously voiced support for for 'fracking' - the extraction of shale gas - and has voiced opposition to wind farms. His appointment alarmed green campaigners. In a recent speech, Mr Paterson praised Britain’s shale gas reserves as “one unexpected and potentially huge windfall.” He praised America and its “can do culture” for taking full advantage of its ...


Paterson urged to work with parties


Northern Ireland Secretary of State Owen Paterson should work closely with Stormont parties, rather than launching criticisms at them from a distance, the DUP has said. After Mr Paterson launched a public consultation on the future shape of the Assembly, DUP deputy leader Nigel Dodds said it was unlikely to shed new light on the subject. The North Belfast MP said reforms required agreement between Stormont parties, but said Mr Paterson was failing to build relations with them. Read more: Belfast Telegraph (14 August 2012)

Future Fit
Future Fit administrator Thu, 13/10/2016 - 08:31 Thursday, 13 October, 2016 Since 2014 the NHS Future Fit programme, led by local clinical professionals, has been reviewing hospital services. We must respect their judgement. The most likely proposal to emerge is that the two current A&Es in Shrewsbury and Telford will continue providing 80% of their current services but will be renamed Urgent Care Centres. More will be opened which is great news for North Shropshire as Oswestry and Whitchurch would be ideal. On top of this a brand new Emergency Care Centre costing £300million will be built ensuring that the most traumatic cases are treated locally and top class clinical specialists are attracted back into the county. Incredibly this investment is being presented by some campaigners as a savage cut. At a meeting with MPs last week Anthony Marsh, Chief Executive of West Midlands Ambulance Service, assured us that his paramedics are so skilled that he is not

The UK Health System Speech “Time to break the political consensus surrounding the NHS” administrator Tue, 25/10/2016 - 08:37 Tuesday, 25 October, 2016 The UK Health System “Time to break the political consensus surrounding the NHS” Rt Hon Owen Paterson MP 24 October 2016 Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors 12 Great George Street London SW1 CHECK AGAINST DELIVERY FINAL Thank you Kristian for that presentation of your excellent paper and thank you ladies and gentlemen for coming this evening. I established UK 2020 in October 2014 to publish thorough research into key areas of public policy, with a view to new policy ideas being put into practice from 2020 onwards. We have not flinched from subjects just because they are widely regarded as controversial. During my ten years on the front bench, and four years spent in Government as a Cabinet Minister, I became increasingly aware of how our public discussion can congeal into a political consensus. I
The UK can lead the way in helping to save elephants
The UK can lead the way in helping to save elephants administrator Sun, 18/09/2016 - 17:13 Sunday, 18 September, 2016 The Telegraph Online Britain can lead the way in helping to save elephants by Owen Paterson http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/09/21/britain-can-lead-the-way-in-… We lose an elephant every fifteen minutes. Their population has fallen by almost a third since 2007. Whichever way you put the numbers, the decline in Africa’s elephants over the last nine years is utterly shocking. The Great Elephant Census, published in August, found only 352,271 Savannah elephants across the 8 countries surveyed.  This alarming decline is the direct result of rising demand for ivory. In recent years, I have visited Kenya and South Africa; the shocking sight and stench of recently magnificent elephants and rhinos turned into horrendous rotting carcasses, swarming with clouds of flies still disgusts me. There is a rational argument that the answer to deman
Acquis Communautaire
Acquis Communautaire administrator Tue, 04/10/2016 - 09:35 Tuesday, 13 September, 2016 The Brexit negotiation process is going to require significant expertise and a consistent approach following the successful result of the referendum in June, when 17.4 million people voted to Leave the European Union. Operation Uncertainty has replaced Operation Fear as those who are unhappy with the referendum result seek to stress the difficulties of delivering this democratic decision. We can counter this by settling important questions concerning the process. For example one major factor going forward is continuity regarding the law. The European Communities Act 1972 gave legal effect to European law. Since then we have incorporated the Acquis Communautaire into our legal system, which is the accumulated body of EU law and obligations from 1958 to the present day. It comprises all the EU's treaties and laws, directives, regulations, decisions, declarations, resolutio
