Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Plastic Waste Recycling (12 Jul 2018)

Mary Creagh: It is vital that we recycle more of our plastic waste here at home and create jobs and growth in every nation and region of this great country. I welcome the Secretary of State’s commitment to my Committee yesterday to recycle half of England’s 35 million asthma inhalers by 2020, not only because of the damaging plastic but because of the damaging fluorinated...

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Mary Creagh: On Friday night, after the Chequers meeting, the Prime Minister announced unanimous Cabinet support and reaffirmed the principle of collective responsibility. After the resignations of two of her Cabinet today—it looks like she could have a hat-trick by close of play—has she appointed a new Foreign Secretary and, if so, who is it?

Armed Forces Veterans (28 Jun 2018)

Mary Creagh: The Minister is making an excellent contribution. When I visited the Community Awareness Programme in my constituency, people told me about the large number of homeless veterans coming through their doors. The Minister is making a point about the liaison with local authorities and homelessness charities to provide specialist support to veterans who may have mental health needs that have not...

Mary Creagh: A third of Norway’s vehicle fleet are electric vehicles—actual cars and not the bicycles that I was joking about earlier. It plans to ban the sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2025. This is a country that was founded on the oil and gas industry and a country whose sovereign wealth fund is now withdrawing from all oil and gas investments. Why cannot we show similar leadership in...

Mary Creagh: What does the Minister think about wood-burning stoves?

Backbench Business - Improving Air Qualitybackbench Business (28 Jun 2018)

Mary Creagh: My hon. Friend has given me something else to worry about on my Committee—I thought it was just nanoplastics we had to be worried about. Does he agree that, whether we are discussing plastics in the ocean or pollution in the air, we have to stop treating our environment—our rivers and our air—as one great big garbage dump, because we are conducting a massive experiment on...

Mary Creagh: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Backbench Business - Improving Air Qualitybackbench Business (28 Jun 2018)

Mary Creagh: Does my right hon. Friend agree that that is a bit of a running theme with the Treasury, which is very keen to look at the money that it controls, but not very keen to look at how costs are externalised on to other services such as the health service?

Backbench Business - Improving Air Qualitybackbench Business (28 Jun 2018)

Mary Creagh: My right hon. Friend is making an excellent speech. When I was in Warsaw the other day, I went to a hire a bike. I accidentally hired an electric bike. I can tell him: when the weather is hot and the hills are hard, that is the only way to go.

Backbench Business - Improving Air Qualitybackbench Business (28 Jun 2018)

Mary Creagh: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker. I will endeavour to stick to the time limit. I join my colleagues in thanking the Liaison and Backbench Business Committees for granting us this debate. As we have heard, air pollution causes an estimated 40,000 early deaths each year. That is as much as is caused by alcohol. As the hon. Member for South West Bedfordshire (Andrew Selous) said in his...

Backbench Business - Improving Air Qualitybackbench Business (28 Jun 2018)

Mary Creagh: I passionately agree with the excellent points that the hon. Gentleman is making, but does he agree that we need fundamentally to rethink how we think of traffic? When people say that they are stuck in traffic, they are traffic—they are part of the congestion. When I cycle to work in the mornings, I am not stuck in traffic because I am part of a cycling stream that is going around the...

Mary Creagh: Does the hon. Gentleman not find it extraordinary that the US Department of Justice and the state of California have brought a case against Volkswagen, which has had to pay out more than $4 billion in the United States, with six people having been indicted, yet the UK Government are being brought to the European Court of Justice for our complete inertia in tackling this criminality?

Exiting the European Union: Privilege (28 Jun 2018)

Mary Creagh: We had a very good discussion about this issue at the Liaison Committee; I agree with my right hon. Friend the Member for Exeter (Mr Bradshaw) about the supreme irony: that the mastermind of the leave campaign, whose sole raison d’être was all about parliamentary sovereignty and taking back control, should be turning his back on this place in a show of arrogance and contempt that...

Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (27 Jun 2018)

Mary Creagh: Can the Minister give us some examples?

Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Jun 2018)

Mary Creagh: Will the Prime Minister join me in congratulating the Foreign Secretary for expressing so pithily what her hard Brexit will do to British jobs and British businesses?

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Mary Creagh: The economic case for Heathrow is unarguable, but the environmental case is unconscionable. The Department’s analysis—this is from the study my hon. Friend talks about—refers to two ways to reduce carbon emissions from flights: one is single-engine taxiing; the other is ensuring that 12% of fuels in aeroplanes are renewable. Neither of those is currently in operation in...

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Mary Creagh: May I take the Secretary of State back to the issue of climate change, which he glossed over? His policy statement says that passenger numbers can grow by 80% by 2050 and we can still meet our carbon budgets, but the Committee on Climate Change says that they must not grow by more than 60% by 2050. He has outlined a set of measures in his sustainability appraisal, but is he not just adopting...
