Pollution Control And The Poultry Industry

EDM number 2841 in 2005-06, proposed by David TC Davies on 24/10/2006.

That this House notes that from 1st November Pollution Prevention and Control (PPC) Regulations require poultry, meat and egg producing businesses to apply for PPC permits to operate; notes that the industry has accepted the importance of the proposed controls many of which are already good practice; applauds the performance of the industry in contributing to government objectives for reducing energy consumption and in respect of disease prevention; welcomes the industry's delivery of safe, traceable food to consumers and the employment it provides in the rural economy without public subsidy; is concerned by the fragile economic state of the poultry industry following the avian influenza episode which cost the industry some £58 million without EU special market measures funding that the Government declined to apply for; believes that the fees for PPC permits will divert scarce resources from poultry businesses investing in measures to comply with PPC requirements at a time of fragile recovery of sustainable financial and market positions; considers the basis of the Environment Agency's charging scheme and its implications for the future of the industry should be independently investigated; and in the meantime calls on the Government to waive the introduction of PPC permit charges for poultry businesses for a period of three years.

This motion has been signed by a total of 25 MPs.
