The House Energy and Commerce Committee issued the latest in a series of white papers examining the impacts of the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS). The latest white paper, issued April 19, outlines and seeks comment on the impact of the RFS on the agricultural sector.Following the release of the white paper on agricultural sector impacts, ASA provided extensive comments highlighting the importance of the RFS to the soybean and biodiesel industries and reinforcing the fact that the RFS does not drive higher commodity or food prices.”Soybean farmers have played a major role in the development of the U.S. biodiesel industry and biodiesel has provided a significant market opportunity for U.S. soybean producers,” wrote ASA in its comments. “However, first and foremost, policymakers must understand that markets and prices for soybeans are driven by demand for soy meal as a protein feed source for livestock. The portion of the soybean used in biodiesel production is the oil, not the meal.””Additionally, in considering the use of soybean oil for biodiesel production, it must be understood that demand for U.S. soybean oil for food use began to decline significantly following the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) action in 2003 to require food manufacturers to include trans fats on nutrition labels beginning in 2006,” added ASA. “The increase in the use of soybean oil for the biodiesel market has essentially taken up the reduced demand for soybean oil in the food sector associated with trans fat labeling as the food industry shifted away from the use of partially hydrogentated soybean oil to various oil blends and the increased use of palm oil.For a full transcript of ASA’s comments, please click here, and for a copy of the committee’s whitepaper, please click here. ASA encourages all members to utilize the comments and urge their Members of Congress to support the RFS and support biodiesel.
Last night the Mayor’s office announced the seven priority areas would be scrapped in light of the “deeply distressing and worrying failures”.The Met described the report as a “significant moment” for the force, the UK’s largest, and named a senior officer to coordinate child protection policing across the capital.HMIC said the hitherto lack of such a role had created an “indefensible absence of strategic oversight of this very important issue”.The report’s author, Matt Parr, said: “Far too many of the cases we looked at fell well short of expected standards and meant that victims weren’t protected, evidence was lost and offenders continued to pose a risk to children.”Investigators found that officers often were unaware of the presence of registered sex offenders in their borough, and that the Met’s IT system for storing information on those at risk of abuse was “fragmentary”.In one case, a 14-year-old girl disclosed she had been given alcohol and cigarettes before being sexually assaulted by a 30-year-old man she met online, but an officer was not assigned to investigate until 17 days later, during which time the man had continued to contact her.HM Chief Inspector of Constabulary, Sir Thomas Winsor, said his team had found “inexcusably poor practice at every stage of a child’s interaction with the police.”The report comes weeks after a damning review found “numerous errors” in Scotland Yard’s Operation Midland probe into claims of a VIP paedophile ring.Assistant Commissioner Martin Hewitt, who will now coordinate child-protection efforts, said: “We have re-thought how we go about our work to protect London’s most vulnerable.“As this report shows, there is still a lot of work to be done.“We have made significant changes already and we are committed to continuing to rise to this challenge.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

The Metropolitan Police is so obsessed with meeting targets on car thefts and burglaries it routinely fails to protect children from sexual exploitation, a report has found.A review by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) revealed that three quarters of child abuse cases were handled inadequately or required improvement.The report identified “fundamental deficiencies” and a lack of overall leadership in a force preoccupied with tackling priorities set by the Mayor of London. Victims weren’t protected, evidence was lost and offenders continued to pose a risk to childrenMatt Parr, HMIC
Brexit hits speed bump as court rules lawmakers must get say LONDON – Britain’s plans to leave the European Union hit a large speed bump Thursday, as the High Court ruled that the government can’t start exit negotiations without a vote in Parliament.The judgment deepened Britain’s divide over Europe, raising hopes among pro-EU politicians that they can soften the terms of the U.K.’s withdrawal from the bloc. “Leave” campaigners say any attempt to do that would be a betrayal of voters’ decision.The government immediately said it would ask the Supreme Court to overturn the ruling. The Court has set aside time in early December to hear the case.Thursday’s ruling could delay government plans to start talks on Britain’s EU exit, or Brexit, within weeks, and opens a major constitutional battle over the balance of power between Parliament and the government.Brexit Secretary David Davis said Britain’s June 23 vote to leave the EU “must be respected.”“The people want us to get on with it, and that is what we are going to do,” he said.Prime Minister Theresa May has said she will use centuries-old powers known as royal prerogative to invoke Article 50 of the EU treaty, which launches two years of exit negotiations, by the end of March.The powers — traditionally held by the monarch but now used by politicians — enable decisions about international treaties and other issues to be made without a vote of Parliament.Several claimants, including a hairdresser and a financial entrepreneur, challenged May’s right to act. They argued that leaving the EU will remove rights, including free movement within the bloc, and that it couldn’t be done without Parliament’s approval.Three senior judges agreed, ruling that “the government does not have the power under the Crown’s prerogative to give notice pursuant to Article 50 for the U.K. to withdraw from the European Union.”The judges backed the claimants’ argument that the government could not remove Britons’ legal rights “unless Parliament had conferred upon the Crown authority to do so.”The ruling infuriated pro-Brexit campaigners, who see the lawsuit as an attempt to block or delay Britain’s EU exit.U.K. Independence Party leader Nigel Farage, who helped lead the campaign to leave the EU, tweeted: “I worry that a betrayal may be near at hand.”“I now fear that every attempt will be made to block or delay the triggering of Article 50,” Farage said. “If this is so, they have no idea of the level of public anger they will provoke.”It’s unlikely the ruling will stop Britain leaving the EU eventually. Most lawmakers accept that voters’ decision must be respected — but they differ widely on what form Brexit should take and how close a relationship Britain should keep with the EU.A majority of members of Parliament backed the “remain” side in the referendum, but could be willing to support the start of exit talks if it’s clear that the government won’t seek a “hard Brexit,” in which Britain leaves the EU’s single market.Pro-EU legislators hope the ruling will force the government to set out its plans for exit negotiations before triggering Article 50, something May has previously ruled out.“Of course there is a mandate for leaving the EU, and we have to accept and respect the result of the referendum,” the opposition Labour Party’s Brexit spokesman, Keir Starmer, told the BBC. “But the terms, and how we leave the EU, are vitally important.”Financial entrepreneur Gina Miller, a lead claimant in the case, said the lawsuit wasn’t an attempt to stop Brexit — just to ensure that Parliament is sovereign.“I hope the MPs (members of Parliament) will do their job and debate this in a sober, grown up way,” she said.David Greene, lawyer for hairdresser Deir Santos, another claimant, said “democracy has been reaffirmed and now very much needs to show it is alive and kicking.”The pound, which has lost about a fifth of its value since the June 23 decision to leave the EU, shot back up on the verdict, rising about 1.5 per cent to $1.2493. The ruling boosted the hopes of the financial sector, which is largely opposed to Brexit, that its effects may be mitigated by Parliament.The case is considered the most important constitutional matter in a generation, pitting the rights of Parliament against those of the executive.Nick Barber, associate professor of constitutional law at Oxford University, said the court had ruled decisively that “you can’t use executive power to overturn statutory rights.”Jeff King, professor of law at University College London, said the government’s Supreme Court appeal “would be unlikely to succeed under the circumstances.”He said the High Court judges “gave a comprehensive ruling on many points, many of which could cause the government’s argument to fail.”If the government loses, it will be forced to let the House of Commons and the House of Lords have a vote. It’s unclear whether that would be done with a simple motion to trigger Article 50, or would need a full Act of Parliament.Passing legislation can take months of debate, argument and amendment, so that might see the government’s timetable for Brexit slipping even further.There is a chance the Supreme Court could refer the case to the European Court of Justice, the EU’s highest court, if it thinks a legal principle needs clarification.That would be an ironic outcome given Britain’s vote to leave the EU, but Barber said it’s extremely unlikely.“I think all sides would agree that would be a mess,” he said.___Associated Press writers Pan Pylas and Sylvia Hui in London contributed to this report.
