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

Ms Sue Doughty: Is the hon. Lady aware that Blaby district council, under the Tories, was the first council to introduce a form of variable charging? It made householders pay according to bin capacity above a certain volume. That is already happening in some counties.  

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 was discussing why it is important for local authorities to be able to undertake pilots in this area, and why the clause enables those pilots to take place. We must get some clear measurements, so we know where we are going with variable waste charging, and how we might make improvements. It is strange that other countries seem to be able to get substantial decreases in landfill but we are...

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 would like to agree with the hon. Gentleman, but I should say straight away that I am not an expert on the 2003 Act. I have been referring to it only in the context of this legislation. I cannot quite give him the satisfaction that he seeks, but I hope that he is following the argument about how the legislation would play a part in terms of council tax discounts in waste management. The...

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 very much welcome the remarks made by the hon. Member for Sherwood (Paddy Tipping), who set out the case very clearly and constructively. The Liberal Democrats, too, have been following the debate after the publication of the strategy unit's waste development report, because much can be done. We have talked about charging, which does not necessarily mean a bill through the door. It can mean...

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

Ms Sue Doughty: I thank the Minister for his full and informative answer. I certainly take his point that, if the directive is coming along, precision is important and working with what the directive requires is right. In the spirit of getting to the end of the Bill, I will comment on the new word that appeared with hazardous waste, which was ''head start''. I say hurrah and welcome, and how good it was to...

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: Clause 111 - Short title (1 Feb 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: On a point of order, Mr. Forth. Are we listening to an election speech? There are a lot of clauses to get through and a considerable amount of time seems to have been wasted. Many of us want to deal with important clauses, yet it would appear that the time of the Committee is being taken up by election speeches.

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: Schedule 4 - Minor and consequential amendments (1 Feb 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: I find it slightly rich that those on the Conservative Benches, where there is opposition to the whole Bill, feel able to make any comment about those who support it.

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: Schedule 4 - Minor and consequential amendments (1 Feb 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: The hon. Lady has dealt with the issue by saying that the leaflet was inviting opinion. It said: ''Tell us what you think''.  It did not say, ''Do it right or wrong''. It invited opinion and, coming from a party that likes to consult people, I think that that is a reasonable question.

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: Clause 102 - Statutory nuisance: lighting (1 Feb 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: I am listening carefully to the Minister. He said that such matters are best dealt with elsewhere. How does he suggest they can be dealt with?

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: Clause 102 - Statutory nuisance: lighting (1 Feb 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: Referring back to our amendment and having listened to the Minister, I seek some clarity. We have no disagreement about the need for safety on industrial and commercial premises and in transport and so on, or about the fact that such places operate 24 hours a day. He referred to the opportunity to take a private action, but with a large installation such as an airport or a ferry terminal, the...

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: Clause 102 - Statutory nuisance: lighting (1 Feb 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: Will you advise me, Mr. Forth? Are we dealing with amendment No. 57 or the whole string of amendments?

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: Clause 102 - Statutory nuisance: lighting (1 Feb 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: Thank you for your guidance, Mr. Forth. Certainly, we support anything that would mitigate a new source of street lighting, which is an enormous cause of nuisance. It pollutes the night sky and creates red glow. Increasingly, good design is reducing that problem. I referred on Second Reading to my visit to Gatwick airport, which has started to consider the light that it emits. That was a...

Written Answers — Home Department: Driving (Mobile Telephones) (31 Jan 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people have been prosecuted for driving while using a hand-held mobile phone since the Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) (Amendment) (No. 4) Regulations 2003 came into force; what the Government are doing to enforce legislation in this area; and if he will make a statement.

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: Clause 101 - Statutory nuisance: insects (27 Jan 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: We want to probe whether a farm is a business or a trade. The owner of the land may be the National Trust, for example, which owns a lot of   riverside land. Is that a business or a trade? Who owns the land, and what impact will there be on biodiversity? How do we do the right thing? I hope that that gives the hon. Gentleman a little clarification. Landowners will be under pressure if a...

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: Clause 101 - Statutory nuisance: insects (27 Jan 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: I thank the Minister for that explanation, but I do not think that he has entirely reassured me.

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: Clause 101 - Statutory nuisance: insects (27 Jan 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: I am grateful to the Minister, and I appreciate that reply. I believe that English Nature has also raised with his Department the point about the potential environmental damage, and again I look forward to some clarity about that. The organisation Buglife would be very interested in making representations to the Minister and his Department. If we are trying to deal with the flies arising from...

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: Clause 101 - Statutory nuisance: insects (27 Jan 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: I thank the Minister for those constructive comments. I almost feel like declaring a personal interest: I ceased working for Thames Water in 1997, and when I visited Mogden, we did not have the level of nuisance that has since arisen. I hold up my hands and say that, as the position has deteriorated, it is possibly not a good thing that I left. I will be in touch with the Minister through...

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: Clause 101 - Statutory nuisance: insects (27 Jan 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: I beg to move amendment No. 116, in clause 101, page 74, line 32, leave out ', trade or business' and insert 'or trade'. At first glance I broadly support the clause. We have all experienced the problems that occur when somebody is composting on a commercial basis and the flies cause a real nuisance to the people who live close by. It is quite hard to get people to deal with that. I have a...

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: Clause 84 - Extension of Noise Act 1996 tolicensed premises etc (27 Jan 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: I am interested in how the clause will work. When I read it initially, I assumed that it related to noise coming from licensed premises, but certainly in the past week, when the public and politicians have been having quite a wide debate about the extension of licensing hours, one thing that people have remarked on heavily is that   there is noise not only from the pub itself but from the...

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: Clause 78 - Warrant to enter premises by force (27 Jan 2005)

Ms Sue Doughty: I seek clarification. As the Minister points out, the powers have existed before. However, there have been considerable complaints, by the Noise Abatement Society and others, which say that the time before one can get into a premises and silence the alarm is too long. In his remarks, the Minister said that the procedure would become faster. For clarification, and to give us hope, will he say...
