Post-18 Education and Funding Review - Motion to Take Note (2 Jul 2019)

Baroness Young of Old Scone: My Lords, I declare an interest as chancellor of Cranfield University and as chairman-designate of the Royal Veterinary College. I support calls by many Peers for improvements in further education and benefits for the 50% who do not study for a higher degree. However, I am unsupportive of many of the Augar proposals for higher education, although perhaps I ought to be more statesmanlike and...

Baroness Young of Old Scone: My Lords, I declare an interest as chair of the Woodland Trust and I welcome the Government’s commitment to net zero carbon as enshrined in this instrument. I will make two very brief points. First, to reach this target, we have to move away from fossil fuels—I commend in that regard the noble Baroness’s speech immediately prior to mine—but we also have to undo some of the damage...

Ash Dieback - Question (25 Jun 2019)

Baroness Young of Old Scone: My Lords, the Minister may recognise that ash dieback is a serious problem but I want to press him further. A load of other diseases are waiting in the wings, some of which will make ash dieback look like a walk in the park. Can the Government tell us what they plan to do to develop an accreditation system for UK-sourced and grown trees, so that the trees we grow in this country are sourced,...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Tree Planting (18 Jun 2019)

Baroness Young of Old Scone: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many trees they estimate were planted in each of the last six quarters for which figures are available in (1) England, (2) Scotland, (3) Wales, and (4) Northern Ireland; whether this is in line with their commitment to plant 11 million trees in this Parliament; and if not, what steps they will take to meet that target.

Inequalities - Motion to Take Note (13 Jun 2019)

Baroness Young of Old Scone: My Lords, I first congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Ravensdale, on his maiden speech. Although I cannot support the electoral method by which he has arrived with us in the Lords, I am pleased he is here, because he is young and we are all too old. We need to hear more younger voices in this House. It is futile to argue about the conflicting statistics on whether inequality and poverty are...

Post-18 Review of Education and Funding - Statement (4 Jun 2019)

Baroness Young of Old Scone: My Lords, I declare an interest as chancellor of one university and chairman-elect of another, and commend the report for one thing—I am quite critical of many of the issues raised in it—which is the bringing together of further and higher education into one system and thinking about them together. I think that is absolutely important, but the risk is that this is a zero-sum game: if...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: High Speed 2 Railway Line: Wendover (4 Mar 2019)

Baroness Young of Old Scone: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the reports by OTB Engineering, published in January, and Michael Byng, published in July 2017 on the Short-Mined Tunnel alternative proposal to the HS2 Phase One route at Wendover; and whether they will place copies of both reports in the Library of the House.

Environment and Wildlife (Legislative Functions) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (12 Feb 2019)

Baroness Young of Old Scone: My Lords, these regulations will allow UK authorities to exercise legislative functions in the UK after exit day in a range of areas, including, as has already been outlined, persistent organic pollutants, importation of timber products and derogations from certain CITES provisions. The Explanatory Memorandum says that this statutory instrument does not make any substantive policy changes,...

Environment (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (12 Feb 2019)

Baroness Young of Old Scone: I thank the Minister for giving way. I just express a slight nervousness about the provision, which I absolutely recognise is necessary, for the new body to be able to take action on complaints that arise from the day of exit, whenever that is. If we were to leave without a deal and the new body did not come into being for 18 months or two years, which is quite possible under the current...

Environment (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (12 Feb 2019)

Baroness Young of Old Scone: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his exposition of the statutory instrument. I know that it has made his brain hurt, so he is in common with all of us. I will focus on some specific issues and particularly tax him on one of its more arcane elements. This SI is one of those known as a jumbo regulation, because it sweeps up so many provisions in a high-level way, but it has one oddity....

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Ulcerative Colitis (6 Feb 2019)

Fly-tipping - Question (31 Jan 2019)

Baroness Young of Old Scone: My Lords, as chairman of the Woodland Trust, I can confirm what the right reverend Prelate said. This is a growing problem not just in AONBs but right across our woods and open countryside. It has got worse as local authority cuts have meant that waste disposal services are less readily available, particularly for green waste, which in many authorities is now charged for. As well as giving...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Gastrointestinal System: Diseases (30 Jan 2019)

Baroness Young of Old Scone: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many gastroenterology specialist nurses were employed by the NHS in each of the past five years.
