Lord Framlingham: My Lords, I would like to speak to Amendments 258, 259 and 260, and I declare my non-pecuniary interests. I was, many years ago, president of the Arboricultural Association, and I am currently an honorary fellow.

Environment Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 121 (30 Jun 2021)

Lord Framlingham: My Lords, I am grateful to have the opportunity to say a few words after the Minister. I am also pleased not to disappoint my noble friend Lord Caithness, because I plan to say a word or two about that major infrastructure project HS2.

Lord Framlingham: My Lords, I would like to say a word or two on behalf of soil and in support of Amendment 110 from the noble Earl, Lord Caithness. We are often told how much of the earth’s surface is covered by water and how we must take care of it—and so we must. However, we are told less often that the remainder of the world is covered largely by soil—or was, until we decided to spread concrete and...

Environment Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 82 (28 Jun 2021)

Lord Framlingham: My Lords, I am very happy to support Amendment 82. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Cameron, for dealing with it so comprehensively that I feel there is little more for me to say. I speak to support the view that the office of environmental protection must not only have teeth but must be totally independent from all strands of government. There are many good reasons for this. Independence is, in...

I would like to talk about a blueprint for trees—or a greenprint, as I like to call it—as a contribution to the consultations on the national tree strategy, which is all part of our environmental future. There are so many well-intentioned...

HS2: Phase 2B - Question (8 Feb 2021)

Lord Framlingham: My Lords, on 31 January 2017, I tabled an amendment to the HS2 Bill which would have stopped this ridiculous vanity project in its tracks.

A petition demanding a Commons debate on its continuation has so far received approximately 150,000 signatures and will have to be granted. Rather than tinkering...

Animal Welfare and Wildlife Crime Offences - Question (12 Jan 2021)

Lord Framlingham: My Lords, one of the many good things to come out of Brexit is our ability to stop the export of live animals for slaughter. I do not expect this practice to have been stopped already, but I trust that it will be as soon as possible. I would be grateful if the Minister could tell us what progress has been made to date and when we can expect to see a total ban in place.

European Union (Future Relationship) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages): Amendment to the Motion (30 Dec 2020)

Lord Framlingham: My Lords, I shall start by saying how sad I am to hear of the retirement of the noble Lord, Lord Cavendish. He is a great expert on trees, and I enjoyed many conversations with him.

I also thank the noble Lord, Lord Frost, and all his team for the excellent work they have...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands–Crewe) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 5 (30 Nov 2020)
