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)

Owen's Column on the Economy
Owen's Column on the Economy administrator Thu, 01/09/2016 - 14:13 Thursday, 1 September, 2016 Next week Parliament returns from its summer recess.  There is plenty to do and I start the upcoming session feeling both positive and optimistic thanks to economic figures released this month. Before the referendum in June, we were bombarded by Project Fear, full of unrelenting doom and gloomy predictions should the United Kingdom vote to leave the European Union.  Following the referendum result, these predictions are now being proven false. Economists had predicted an immediate rise in numbers claiming unemployment benefit. Instead, the latest figures show that there was a drop of 8,600 in the number of claimants. The national claimant rate in July dropped to 2.4% and North Shropshire can boast a rate, lower than the national average, of only 1.4%. The employment rate is now 74.5% – the highest since records began in 1971. The British economy is faring wel

Owen's Column on Local Transport: Dualling the A5, building the A483 Pant and Llanymynech Bypass and extending the London to Shrewsbury Train Service to Gobowen, Wrexham and Chester administrator Thu, 01/09/2016 - 14:25 Thursday, 4 August, 2016 At the beginning of August, four vehicles were involved in a collision on the A5 at Montford Bridge. Although those involved in that collision escaped without serious harm, a woman is being treated for life-changing injuries after a crash on the A5 near Chirk this week.  There have been too many fatal, serious and slight casualties.  48 people have died in accidents along the A5. There have been a further 312 serious injuries and 1,090 people have been injured in crashes since 1991.  Each death is tragic and each casualty carries a cost; it has been estimated that this has cost almost £170 million to the public purse.  Every time the road is closed due to accidents it causes huge inconvenience, especially at bu
Owen's Column on BT, Openreach and Broadband
Owen's Column on BT, Openreach and Broadband administrator Thu, 01/09/2016 - 14:16 Thursday, 18 August, 2016 Every week, I receive many letters and emails from my constituents telling me about the broadband coverage in their area. Time and again, I learn of slow, unreliable services across north Shropshire. Broadband is no longer a luxury, but an essential utility, as central to our lives as water, electricity and roads. Its role will only increase in the future, as more smart technologies rely upon it, calling for serious consideration of how our network is structured and run. For the last decade, the approach has been to regulate the dominant provider – Openreach – as a fully-owned subsidiary of BT and spend increasing public money on rural and poorly-served areas. This arrangement has been slow and ineffective. Instead, we need a bold new strategy which separates Openreach from its parent company and gives it the freedom to co-ordinate and develop t
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
