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)

Chief Executive of Openreach Clive Selley's visit to North Shropshire
Chief Executive of Openreach Clive Selley's visit to North Shropshire Fri, 03/03/2017 - 15:04 Thursday, 23 February, 2017 In the 21st century broadband is as vital a public utility as power and water. Many businesses are now dependent upon a fast and reliable broadband service. 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 than any other MP, raising issues in 71 postcodes. Clive Selley, the Chief Executive of Openreach, agreed to visit North Shropshire early this year to see just how bad the situation has become, and work on urgent solutions to the problems my constituents and local businesses face. It is unprecedented to have the Chief Executive of Openreach visit and I am extremely grateful to him and his team for taking the time do so. Mr Selley was able to meet Mr McGuinn
The Minister of State for Transport visits North Shropshire to consider proposals to dual the A5 and build a Pant Llanymynech bypass
The Minister of State for Transport visits North Shropshire to consider proposals to dual the A5 and build a Pant Llanymynech bypass Fri, 17/03/2017 - 11:56 Thursday, 9 March, 2017 In my first Adjournment Debate in the House of Commons in 1997, I described the deplorable state of the A5 north of Shrewsbury. Since then, I have lobbied Ministers to dual the whole road. There have been 1,785 casualties on this stretch of road up to the Welsh Border at Chirk since 1991. 1,407 of these were slight, 320 were serious and 58 of these were fatal. These accidents disproportionately affect my constituents with over half of those involved living in an SY, TF or CW postcode. Each death is tragic and each accident is appalling. The estimated cost to the public purse is a staggering £223.9 million. Many of these accidents could be avoided by upgrading the road, starting with dualling it entirely. The road is simply unfit for purpose.  Ten months ago I made significant
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
European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill & Article 50
European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill & Article 50 Fri, 03/03/2017 - 15:01 Thursday, 9 February, 2017 Last week I was delighted that the Government made good on its promise to bring a simple, straightforward Bill before Parliament giving the Prime Minister the authority to begin the process of the United Kingdom formally leaving the European Union. The historic, overwhelming vote by 498 to 114 in favour of the Bill on the 1st February represented an important milestone. Although it was simply a part of the legislative process as we begin to leave, it was one of the most important votes I have cast since being elected an MP almost 20 years ago. I was elected in 2015, along with other Conservative MPs, on a mandate to hold a referendum on our membership of the EU. We are now delivering what the 17.4 million people wanted when they voted last June. We voted to take back control. The £9.2million pamphlet, which was sent from the Government to 27 m
