Biographical Details

"For 21 years he was a Director of the Cambridge Water Company and its Chairman from 1985-1989. His Presidency of the Association of Drainage Authorities from 1991-1994 recognised thirty years of practical experience in Land Drainage and Sea Defence. As he said at the time, “farming below sea-level helps to concentrate the mind”. In 1994 he was appointed Chairman of the Environment Agency Advisory Committee whose responsibility was to advise on the establishment of the Environment Agency, bringing together The National Rivers Authority, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Pollution and the Waste Regulation Authorities. When the Environment Agency was formed in 1995, he was invited to take on its Chairmanship. The setting up of the Environment Agency was a landmark in the history of the country, signalling the growing importance of the protection and management of the environment. Thus Lord De Ramsey has a major influence on agriculture and the environment both of which are central pillars of the research and teaching here in the School of Agriculture, Food and Environment of Cranfield University."
