Wild Animals in Circuses (No. 2) Bill - Report: Amendment 1 (17 Jul 2019)

Baroness Fookes: My Lords, as I explained at the outset, this was a point of principle about always challenging Governments when they introduce legislation to ensure that they do not go beyond the bounds of what I would call propriety—just taking off into the sunset with whatever they fancied. I am entirely with the noble Baroness: I have no wish to see this Bill deferred or put at danger in any way...

Wild Animals in Circuses (No. 2) Bill - Report: Amendment 1 (17 Jul 2019)

Wild Animals in Circuses (No. 2) Bill - Second Reading (19 Jun 2019)

Baroness Fookes: My Lords, I warmly support the introduction of this Bill, and that will come as no surprise to my noble friend the Minister. My beef is that it has taken so long to get to this point. I could have done with the Bill back in the 1960s, when I was a very young councillor faced with the prospect of a travelling circus coming to town seeking a loan of council property to stage the circus. I had...

Animal Welfare Standards - Question (12 Dec 2018)

Baroness Fookes: My Lords, I have protested about the killing of any animal without pre-stunning for more years now than I care to remember, and I am not going to stop protesting now. May I ask my noble friend not to allow the departure of animals from this country without pre-stunning?

Veterans Strategy - Motion to Take Note (15 Nov 2018)

Baroness Fookes: My Lords, I declare two interests, first as president of the Sussex branch of SSAFA and, secondly, as president of the War Widows’ Association of Great Britain. I am particularly proud to be associated with war widows—a gallant group of women who have suffered greatly over the years and whom I frankly regard as a form of veteran. It is their position on which I want to speak in the debate...

Victims Strategy - Statement (10 Sep 2018)

Baroness Fookes: My Lords, reference has been made to an increase in the powers of the Victims’ Commissioner, about which I am delighted, but I am not clear what they will be. Could my noble and learned friend flesh it out for us?

Ivory Bill - Second Reading (17 Jul 2018)

Baroness Fookes: My Lords, unlike the noble Baroness, Lady Flather, I did not grow up knowing elephants, but I do have a vivid recollection of a safari trip I made many years ago—not at Treetops but somewhere similar, with a watering hole. We were told that the animals would probably come during the night, a bell would ring and if we wished we could get up to see them. The bell rang and I shot up—I was...

Transport Emissions in Urban Areas - Statement (22 May 2018)
