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)

We will all benefit from improved reciprocal free trade with our EU neighbours and the rest of the world
We will all benefit from improved reciprocal free trade with our EU neighbours and the rest of the world Thu, 26/01/2017 - 09:58 Thursday, 26 January, 2017 Last week Theresa May made a tremendous speech explaining her 12-point plan to leave the European Union. By leaving the EU we would also leave the internal market of the EU commonly known as the single market. The Prime Minister provided certainty about the process of leaving, reaffirming our free trade ambitions with the EU and the rest of the world. The European Union's internal market is important to us and Britain wants access to it by continuing to buy and sell goods and services to our friends and allies on the continent. However the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, David Davis, told me in the House of Commons that 20 countries have grown their trade with the market from outside faster than we have from within. This is an incredibly important point as independent countries can a
Escaping the Common External Tariff will lead to cheaper food for everyone
Escaping the Common External Tariff will lead to cheaper food for everyone Sun, 19/02/2017 - 09:55 Sunday, 19 February, 2017 The Common Agricultural Policy has failed the United Kingdom on two fronts. From a food production point of view we have become less self-sufficient; down from 74 per cent to 61 per cent. It is also failing environmentally. The CAP has evolved from the days when it was famous for subsidising food production – graphically highlighted by its propensity to build butter mountains and fill wine lakes. Today, farmers receive money mainly for managing their land. Increasingly, this approach is morphing into something far more indefensible – imposing common environmental standards right across the European landscape. This is self-evidently unworkable. What is good for the olive groves of Greece or the forests of Sweden cannot be right for the dairy farmers of Devon or the hill farmers of Wales. Once we leave the EU we can leave the CAP
How we can reset our fisheries policy – and empower local communities
How we can reset our fisheries policy – and empower local communities Thu, 26/01/2017 - 10:04 Monday, 16 January, 2017 https://www.politicshome.com/news/uk/economy/house/82432/owen-paterson-how-we-can-reset-our-fisheries-policy-%E2%80%93-and-empower-local As shadow Agriculture Minister I travelled all around the British Isles between 2003-2005, and saw tragically damaged fishing communities and degraded marine environments. I also visited Norway, the Faroes, Iceland, Newfoundland, the east coast of the United States and the Falklands; here I saw improving marine environments and prosperous fishing communities. I stated then that the Common Fisheries Policy is a biological, environmental, economic and social disaster; it is beyond reform. I wrote a Green Paper pulling together all the best ideas that I had learned from successful fishing countries. To implement these we had to first withdraw from the CFP.   The CFP forces fishermen to throw back fish de

We are a prosperous nation with a promising future ahead of us Thu, 26/01/2017 - 09:54 Thursday, 12 January, 2017 As we welcome in the New Year we can also welcome the most recent economic data, which further debunks Project Fear along with its doom and gloom predictions since the Brexit vote last June. The Centre for Business Research at the University of Cambridge have released a report which criticises the predictions that came from the Treasury in the run-up to the referendum. Graham Gudgin, one of the authors of the report, wrote that they found what the Treasury had said was very flawed and very partisan. Britain begins 2017 as the world’s strongest advanced economy. In 2016 we grew faster than each of the G7 countries including Germany, Japan and the United States. We ended the year with business activity hitting a 17-month high, just six months after the referendum result. Survey data shows that UK manufacturing expanded at its fastest pace for
