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)

Road and Rail Campaigns
Road and Rail Campaigns Tue, 25/07/2017 - 11:21 Thursday, 13 July, 2017 Late last month, I had a meeting with officials from the Department for Transport in London. I had previously met the Transport Minister, John Hayes, in Parliament to discuss pressing transport and infrastructure projects in North Shropshire, which I campaigned for during the election in June. I was elected with 33,642 votes and a 61 per cent share, new records for North Shropshire. This provides me with a strong mandate to take to the Transport Minister and his officials in the department. The Department for Transport will publish Road Casualties Great Britain at the end of September. This document will detail the number of casualties on our roads and their cost. The figures which I had to show the John Hayes when he visited the constituency in March were stark. Since 1991, there have been over 1,785 casualties on the A5 north of Shrewsbury up to the Welsh Border at Chirk. At the las

The Daily Telegraph - Spiteful protectionism by Brussels helps no- one and Germans are realising this Wed, 09/08/2017 - 09:20 Wednesday, 19 July, 2017 This evening, I will be discussing Brexit at a conference in Hamburg. It is an ideal place to make the case, as – from the days of the Hanseatic League to its zenith as the second-largest port in Europe after London in the 19th century – Hamburg has always been an outward-looking, independent-minded city, built upon free trade. This outlook, and the emphasis on reciprocal free trade, are precisely what Brexit is about. My principal message is simple: Brexit is going to happen. Those still in denial must take note and understand the reality of the situation. More people voted to leave the EU than have ever voted for any issue or political party. Article 50 was triggered on 29th March, after 494 MPs voted for it in the House of Commons. The automatic legal effect of this is that at midnight on 29th March
The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital
The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital Tue, 25/07/2017 - 11:22 Thursday, 27 July, 2017 Last Friday, it was a real honour to attend the opening of the new state-of-the-art theatre and oncology building at The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital by HRH Princess Alexandra. It was wonderful that she took the time to see for herself how this new facility will enhance an absolutely world-class institution offering world-class care by world-class staff. She also presented the first ever Dame Agnes Hunt Nursing Medal to Sister Glenna Hardy, a Nurse Practitioner in the hospital’s Pre-Operative Assessment Unit, for her remarkable 35 years of continuous service. Outside the new building, a statue of Percy the Peacock, who lived on the hospital grounds for 25 years, was unveiled. The statue, made of obsolete medical equipment by Luke Kite at the British Ironwork Centre, will welcome future visitors to the main entrance, as Percy did for s
