Heat Pumps - Question ( 6 Mar 2024)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: My Lords, what studies have the Government carried out on terraced housing in our country? Many people live in terraced housing with little or no front gardens and little, if any, gardens behind. Where will the heat pumps go in those circumstances? What, if any, research have the Government done on that?

NHS: Drug Shortages - Question (17 Jan 2024)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: My Lords, will the noble Earl please focus—

NHS: Drug Shortages - Question (17 Jan 2024)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: I am sorry; will the noble Lord please focus on pancreatic cancer and say whether he is satisfied with the performance of the National Health Service and others in respect of research into and finding solutions to what in many respects is apparently becoming a notifiable disease and a sentence of death?

Bread and Flour Regulations 1988 - Question ( 7 Feb 2023)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: My Lords, between 80 and 90 countries now add folic acid to flour, with no known side-effects. What are the Government waiting for? All the evidence is there, all the science is there and this is all well known. I do not know, speaking for myself, what the delay is about.

Employment Rights Legislation - Question ( 1 Feb 2023)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: My Lords, why are the Government intent on diminishing scrutiny in this House, as is strongly suspected by many Members? Why are Members of this House being denied the opportunity to question Ministers on these changes, and why is Parliament itself, which apparently is in the Minister’s mind, being refused the opportunity to discuss these things?

Horizon Europe: UK Participation - Question (31 Jan 2023)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: My Lords, since the Minister has considerable experience of the European Union and its institutions, why does he think that the European Union is behaving in this remarkably unkind way? Is there some explanation or is it just a question of the EU using this issue to try to succeed in some other way in the negotiations?

Environment Act 2021: Targets - Question (25 Oct 2022)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: My Lords, what is the Minister’s reflection on the recent reports that only one river in England, the Tyne, met water quality standards to be able to sustain migratory fish? We cannot go on like this. For most of my life, I have been an angler, a fly fisherman. In some respects, I suppose that I have depleted the stocks in rivers too, but not to the extent that pollution is now doing...

Energy Prices Bill - Committee: Amendment 1 (24 Oct 2022)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: My Lords, I begin by expressing my wholehearted support for the speech given by my noble friend Lord Rooker. He has so comprehensively discussed these issues that it is barely necessary for me to support him, but I intend to do so wholeheartedly, as I have said. Perhaps I had better say that I was previously a member of the Secondary Legislation Scrutiny Committee and I am now a member of the...

Food: Imports and Security - Question (24 Oct 2022)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: My Lords, will the Minister focus for a moment on the inexorable increase in the number of food banks being used by people who simply cannot afford to shop elsewhere? This is a real problem. Fortunately for the United Kingdom, people have so far been generous in supplying food banks, but even now we are reading and learning that some food banks are simply running out of food. This is a pretty...

Rwanda Asylum Partnership - Question (19 Oct 2022)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: My Lords, when will—

Rwanda Asylum Partnership - Question (19 Oct 2022)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: She is just reading her question out!

Rwanda Asylum Partnership - Question (19 Oct 2022)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: My Lords—

Bread and Flour Regulations: Folic Acid - Question ( 6 Jul 2022)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: My Lords, why does the Minister refuse to implement the regulations when there is abundant evidence internationally in support of this? Even worse, what does he have to say to those 18 women each week who lose a baby because of the Government’s failure to act?

Small Modular Nuclear Reactors - Question (28 Jun 2022)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: My Lords, can the Minister remind the House of when Britain built a civil nuclear reactor on time and within budget? I ask this not to cast any doubt on the Minister’s commitment, but to say that we know that there are numerous opponents of civil nuclear power and every time we build a reactor we give them more and more excuses over delays and cost overruns to attack the idea of civil...

Safeguarding of Young Children - Question (24 May 2022)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: My Lords, there was a very similar case during my time as the Member of Parliament for Copeland, in which a child, a small boy, was murdered by his stepfather. I know that that is not always the case, but it frequently is. I regret to say that successive Governments—Labour, Conservative and even, I may say, coalition Governments—have not grasped this problem. It may be that from the...

Zoonoses Research Centre - Question (24 May 2022)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: My Lords, when the Labour Government were elected in 1997, we inherited the international beef ban. Bovine spongiform encephalopathy was a zoonosis which wreaked havoc on the British agriculture industry and our reputation, not just in Europe but internationally. I regret that, although we eventually solved the beef ban and the problem of BSE, the Labour Government did not go on to establish...

Folic Acid Fortification - Question ( 6 Apr 2022)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: My Lords, why did the Minister not say—or give some indication—as to when this working group will report, first to the Government and secondly to this House? It has had long enough since my noble friend succeeded in moving this policy change. When does the Minister expect the report, and when can we see some action?

Homes for Ukraine Scheme - Private Notice Question (28 Mar 2022)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: My Lords, it is a simple question: how many Ukrainians have been admitted to the United Kingdom under this scheme? It is quite simple—or is the Minister telling us he does not know?

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (22 Mar 2022)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: My Lords, I strongly support my noble friend—indeed, my very personal friend. He and I wrote the White Paper on the Food Standards Agency. It was necessary then and it was the right thing to do. The public had lost confidence in politicians of all parties and we had to create a new and independent organisation. That is what we did. Believe me, I cannot for the life of me understand why...

Trade Talks with India, Greenland and Israel - Question ( 9 Mar 2022)

Lord Cunningham of Felling: My Lords, will the Minister commit the Government to including in the parliamentary scrutiny of the negotiating objectives the aim that global companies that try to abuse and infiltrate food markets—I am not suggesting that any of the three countries mentioned are included in that—should be excluded? Should we not exclude in our negotiating commitments all companies that have proven...
