Climate Change and the Environment (8 Feb 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: I want to look at a number of issues relating to the need for a co-ordinated approach to mitigating the effects of climate change. The first is the security implications of climate change. During the past 12 months, we have been developing a greater understanding of the impact of climate change on the security of countries across the globe, and of the potential for climate change to increase...

Climate Change and the Environment (8 Feb 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: I thank my hon. Friend for that very helpful contribution. Only this week, we heard about the potential for conflict over the Nile waters and the sources of that river. We are aware that Sagarmatha national park in the Himalayas is at risk. Glacial lakes are melting, which has an impact on local communities because the water flows down on to the low-lying flood plains. Communities there rely...

Climate Change and the Environment (8 Feb 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: I am grateful to the Minister for his intervention, but other commentators do not share his confidence about flooding.

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: New Clause 1 - Illegal deposit or disposal of waste (power of arrest) (1 Feb 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: On the face of it, one might have quite a bit of sympathy with the new clause. We share concerns about increasing fly-tipping as a result of the end of co-disposal of hazardous waste and the impact of the various Acts. Although we do not disagree with the reasons behind these Acts, we have concerns about   the availability of places to take such waste. Earlier, we raised concerns that there...

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: New Clause 12 - Battery recycling (1 Feb 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: I echo the thanks to you, Mr. Forth and to Mr. Taylor for ably guiding us through the Bill. It has led to some complex areas involving DEFRA and some aspects of ODPM legislation. It was useful to have that help and support. Particular thanks go to the officials, the Clerks, the police and the Hansard reporters. We need those people for our Committees to work. Their diligence in asking the...

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: New Clause 7 - Noise act 1996: requirement for consultation (1 Feb 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: I appreciate what the Minister says about resurfacing roads; we are familiar with the issue of new surfaces. However, at the moment resurfacing is very reliant on normal programmes for roads within the Department for Transport and the Highways Agency. People are often told that resurfacing will take place, perhaps, five years hence. Five years is a long time to live with the misery of road noise.

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: New Clause 7 - Noise act 1996: requirement for consultation (1 Feb 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: The purpose of our new clause was to probe the Government. We knew that there was more to be done. Having stressed the need to take a much stronger view of the nuisance of noise in all its different forms and having heard the Minister's reply on that, we will not press new clause 10. Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:— The Committee divided: Ayes 3, Noes 10.

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: New Clause 12 - Battery recycling (1 Feb 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. Batteries present a big problem. They contain many harmful substances. The UK seems to be at the bottom of the league table for recycling them and we shall have to smarten up our act. The Government have said nothing encouraging about what we will do about battery recycling. We tabled several questions on the matter, and it appears that...

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: New Clause 7 - Noise act 1996: requirement for consultation (1 Feb 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: I agree with the hon. Lady's early remarks; we need a national noise reduction strategy. I welcome the work that the Government have done on noise nuisance. We know that that work has been extensive—it is not the sort of problem that one solves overnight—and was important in enabling DEFRA to meet its objectives for protecting the environment and enhancing quality of life and public...

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: New Clause 6 - Charges for the collection of household waste (1 Feb 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: I thank the Minister for his reply, but I am not entirely comfortable with it because we seem to be in the usual cycle of the Government saying that they will have a look and do a bit more and incentivise. Councils are still waiting for details of how they will be allowed to calculate composting as part of their landfill schemes. We asked whether we could apply variable charging schemes, and...

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: New Clause 6 - Charges for the collection of household waste (1 Feb 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: I thank the Minister. That information is being consulted on as a result of an amendment that the Liberal Democrats tabled to the Waste and Emissions Trading Bill, identifying a problem in that area. Ever since that Bill was enacted, we have been asking for further information, but whenever we ask the Government about this we do not get an answer. I press for an answer because the Waste and...
