He was first appointed to the Shadow Cabinet of David Cameron in 2007 as Shadow Secretary of State for Northern Ireland.

Political career Paterson contested, but failed to win, the Wrexham seat in the 1992 General Election.

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)

The Future of Immigration Policy
The Future of Immigration Policy Fri, 28/04/2017 - 12:40 Thursday, 20 April, 2017 The future of immigration policy was one of the most emotive subjects of the Brexit campaign. To the detractors on the Remain side, concerns over immigration amounted to nothing more than racism or xenophobia, but they are nothing of the kind. Rather, the morphing of the free movement of labour established by the Treaty of Rome to the free movement of people established at Maastricht and confirmed at Lisbon is simply the clearest manifestation of the notion that we do not run our own country. Rapid levels of population growth put severe pressure on our public services. For example North Shropshire has experienced an increase in demand for school places; the proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language in a primary school in Oswestry is above the national average. Access to healthcare suffers as well; I have received letters from constituents who are unabl
Politics First - North Shropshire: Ready to Thrive in a post-Brexit World
Politics First - North Shropshire: Ready to Thrive in a post-Brexit World Fri, 28/04/2017 - 12:44 Thursday, 27 April, 2017 At the last General Election I promised to campaign to improve road, rail, broadband and mobile phone communications across North Shropshire.  Rural economies are diversifying fast and Government must work with all forms of providers to improve communications. In the 21st century, broadband is as vital a public utility as power and water. New industries and businesses are now dependent upon a fast and reliable broadband service, in addition to a good mobile phone signal. I have many constituents complaining regularly that their broadband and mobile phone service is not just bad but actively deteriorating. Last November I had a very frank but constructive meeting with the Chief Executives of BT, EE and Openreach. They were all fully aware of the problems in North Shropshire because they say that I have written more letters to them tha
The Times - How Britain can take back control of immigration
The Times - How Britain can take back control of immigration Fri, 28/04/2017 - 13:01 Monday, 10 April, 2017 Brexit must mean taking back control of Britain’s borders — and here is how. Immigration ranked among the most emotive subjects of the referendum campaign. To the detractors on the Remain side, concerns over immigration amounted to nothing more than racism or xenophobia, but they are nothing of the kind. Rather, the morphing of the free movement of labour established by the Treaty of Rome to the free movement of people established at Maastricht and confirmed at Lisbon is simply the clearest manifestation of the notion that we do not run our own country. The overwhelming majority of Britons — emphatically including those who voted to Leave — feel absolutely no resentment towards workers or students from overseas, recognising and valuing the skills and experience they bring. However, mass migration at its present level has depressed wages and
Negotiating Brexit
Negotiating Brexit Fri, 28/04/2017 - 12:38 Thursday, 6 April, 2017 In recent years, the UK has continued to experience a period of robust economic growth, record levels of employment and a falling deficit. Our economy grew by 1.8 per cent last year; growing faster than countries such as Japan and the United States, the first and third largest economies in the world. This level of growth is expected to continue as the Office for Budget Responsibility now forecasts a rate of 2.0 per cent in 2017. PricewaterhouseCoopers predicts that over the next three decades UK economic growth is expected to be double the annual pace of growth expected in Italy. They also expect UK growth to outpace levels seen in both France and Germany. PwC went on to say that if we forge new trade ties with faster-growing emerging economies we can cement our status as one of the engines of global growth. Most economic forecasters agree that the global economy will continue to grow at a
