Climate Change (24 Jun 2019)

Ed Miliband: I am glad to follow the hon. Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous). There is something paradoxical about the fact that this is a low-key debate on a Monday evening, but one thing that it indicates is that there is a great deal of consensus on the need for action, and that is a good thing. The fact that there is not a huge row going on shows that, on both sides of the House, we want to act. I...

Net Zero Emissions Target (12 Jun 2019)

Ed Miliband: I warmly welcome the Secretary of State’s announcement and join those who have paid tribute to the Minister for Energy and Clean Growth, because this idea had been lying around for a couple of years in the long grass of Government and it was she who took it out of that long grass and helped make it happen. I also welcome the five-year review mechanism because we might well need to bring...

Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme (10 Jun 2019)

Ed Miliband: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Thanks to my hon. Friend the Member for Easington (Grahame Morris) having secured this debate, the House has now passed a motion stating: “That this House calls on the Government to carry out a review of the existing arrangements for the sharing of the surplus generated by the Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme.” I wonder whether you could give us some...

Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme (10 Jun 2019)

Ed Miliband: The motion states: “That this House calls on the Government to carry out a review of the existing arrangements for the sharing of the surplus generated by the Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme.” As I understand it, the Government will not vote against the motion, so will the Minister tell us what he is going to do after the motion passes, because it calls for precisely such a review?

Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme (10 Jun 2019)

Ed Miliband: But this House is about to pass a motion agreeing to a review, so the Government are going to have to do something about that. That is the point, and I think we would all be interested to know what the Minister intends to do.

Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme (10 Jun 2019)

Ed Miliband: I am glad to follow the hon. Member for Mansfield (Ben Bradley); it is good that there is all-party support for this debate. I want to congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Easington (Grahame Morris) on his brilliant speech and on setting out his case so eloquently. I am speaking in this debate because I want to see justice for the retired miners in my constituency of Doncaster, North...

Environment and Climate Change (1 May 2019)

Ed Miliband: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Truro and Falmouth (Sarah Newton). Her eloquent words on climate change show that the Front Bench’s loss is the Back Benches’ gain and this House’s gain. The tone of this debate has been largely good-natured and about shared objectives, and that is important. This debate matters, and the emergency matters, because, contrary to what the...

Environment and Climate Change (1 May 2019)

Ed Miliband: It is nice of my hon. Friend to say so. I want to talk about how we persuade people, and I think there are four things we need to do. First, I enjoyed the speech by the hon. Member for Edinburgh North and Leith (Deidre Brock), who speaks from the Front Bench for the SNP, but I slightly disagreed with one thing. She said a couple of times that we need to tell people their lives are going to...

Environment and Climate Change (1 May 2019)

Ed Miliband: I agree absolutely with the former Secretary of State. I want to finish by saying this. I reflect on our cross- party consensus in this country, which is incredibly important. It was created in part thanks to David Cameron’s advocacy of the issue in the 2000s, and it is important that we maintain it. However, we should allow this: there will be different visions of how we get to the same...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Patients: Travel (26 Apr 2019)

Ed Miliband: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, (a) how many people in Doncaster North constituency have accessed the Healthcare Travel Costs Scheme in each of the last three years; and (b) how uptake per person in Doncaster North constituency compares with average uptake per person in England in each of the last three years.

Climate Change Policy (23 Apr 2019)

Ed Miliband: I want to ask the Minister about the global context. We have had 1° of warming already. Paris set the objective of no more than 1.5° of warming, but I think I am right in saying that the Paris pledges add up to about 2.7° of warming, and the world is off track on the Paris commitments. Can the Minister tell us what progress has been made since Paris on improving the pledges globally? It...

Climate Action and Extinction Rebellion (23 Apr 2019)

Ed Miliband: (Urgent Question): To ask the Minister for Energy and Clean Growth if she will make a statement on climate action and Extinction Rebellion.

Climate Action and Extinction Rebellion (23 Apr 2019)

Ed Miliband: I thank the Minister for her reply. People can believe that the tactics of Extinction Rebellion are right or wrong—the Minister obviously believes they are wrong—but the demonstrators are certainly not wrong about the failure of politics to do anything like what is necessary to fight climate change: they are right. She said in her reply that we have made progress as a country, and I thank...

European Council (25 Mar 2019)

Ed Miliband: I think I might surprise the Prime Minister by saying that there is something I welcome in her statement. She said in her statement that “unless this House agrees to it, no deal will not happen.” So can she confirm that if this House continues, as it has so far, to vote against no deal, she will not seek to take us out of the European Union on 12 April without a deal?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Mar 2019)

Ed Miliband: Further to the question from the Father of the House, does the Prime Minister not realise that in her answer she is the roadblock to this House reaching a majority, not the facilitator of it? It is blindingly obvious—including, I believe, to members of the Cabinet—that what the House now needs to do is to have a series of indicative votes, precisely so that it can express its will about...
