Animal Welfare (12 Dec 2017)
Simon Hart: Does my hon. Friend recognise that the decline in bovine TB in Wales is no more distinct in the areas where vaccination takes place than it is in areas where vaccination does not take place? Indeed, the Welsh Government are now considering whether they need to bring in a limited cull because the existing methods are not working. I hope he takes that into account.

Backbench Business: Rural Economy of Wales (28 Nov 2017)
Simon Hart: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the technology already exists? It is available in the Alps, in Norway, and in the highlands of Scotland. The technology is, to some extent, proven. What is actually required, as I am sure the Minister will confirm, is political will.

Lowland Curlew (17 Oct 2017)
Simon Hart: By way of an example and to reinforce my right hon. Friend’s comments on predator control, on the island of Caldey, just off Pembrokeshire, it was decided to simply eliminate the resident population of rats. It cost £75,000 of private money and was a straightforward operation. No permissions were necessary. Within less than a year, puffins have returned and the skylark population...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: HMS Queen Elizabeth (9 Oct 2017)
Simon Hart: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what jets are being used on HMS Queen Elizabeth until the F-35 comes into service.

UK Elections: Abuse and Intimidation — [David Hanson in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)
Simon Hart: Thank you very much, Mr Hanson, for your role this afternoon. I also thank colleagues from both sides of the House for such useful contributions and the Government for taking such immediate action on this. We even got a letter from the Prime Minister before the Minister had got to his feet, so things are working well. I apologise for going on too long at the beginning, particularly to my hon....

UK Elections: Abuse and Intimidation — [David Hanson in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)
Simon Hart: I’m already wound up! [Laughter.]

UK Elections: Abuse and Intimidation — [David Hanson in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)
Simon Hart: I could not have put it better myself. In fact, I would expand it to outside election times, too. As we have heard today, this problem is not limited to that four or five-week period every three or four years. My second question to the Minister is about reviewing existing laws and seeing which work and which should work but are not being enforced. Where there are gaps, we should recommend how...

UK Elections: Abuse and Intimidation — [David Hanson in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)
Simon Hart: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for that contribution. Legislation of course already exists to deal with such incidents but, as we touched on before, it is not always easily accessible. It is not always entirely advantageous to be distracted by that during an election campaign.
