World Energy Outlook 2020 - Question (20 Oct 2020)

Baroness Hayman: My Lords, I declare my interests as set out in the register. Does the Minister agree that there are considerable opportunities for the creation of many sustainable jobs for the future in the infrastructure and technology projects needed to achieve net zero? If so, can he assure me that plans are in place for reskilling workers currently facing redundancy or the loss of their job to take up...

Trade and Agriculture Commission and Trade Remedies Authority - Question (15 Oct 2020)

Baroness Hayman: My Lords, during our debates in Committee on the Trade Bill, Ministers have resisted making amendments to align trade policy and agreements with our environmental and climate obligations in the Bill. They have, however, assured us of “the Government’s commitment to addressing the global environmental challenges that we face.”—[ Official Report, 13/10/20; col. 1068] What mechanisms...

Trade Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 77 (13 Oct 2020)

Baroness Hayman: My Lords, I am grateful to everyone who contributed to this short debate. Of course, I am disappointed by the Minister’s response. Ministers at the Dispatch Box—and I do not doubt their sincerity—talk about the Government’s commitments in this area, but we hear more talk about general commitment and less talk about specific actions. Time is running out; we are behind in our own...

Trade Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 77 (13 Oct 2020)

Baroness Hayman: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Baronesses, Lady Jones, and Lady Kramer, who have added their names to my Amendment 77. I also welcome and support Amendment 83A in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Kramer, which is in this group. In these amendments, we return to the discussions on how we align the UK’s future trade policy with our climate and environmental obligations. When we...

Covid-19: Local Restrictions - Private Notice Question (9 Oct 2020)

Baroness Hayman: My Lords, Covid is not a one-off, short-term emergency. There will be difficult judgments and hard decisions to be made for many months ahead. Does the Minister accept that it is imperative that we find a way to ensure legitimacy for those decisions by gaining parliamentary assent before, not after, they are taken, and that parliamentary assent before should be the rule, not the exception?...

Net Zero Review - Question (1 Oct 2020)

Baroness Hayman: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether the Net Zero Review will take into account co-benefits, including those relating to (1) improved health, (2) productivity, and (3) employment, in calculating the costs and investments needed to reach net zero emissions.

Net Zero Review - Question (1 Oct 2020)

Baroness Hayman: My Lords, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper. I draw attention to my interests as set out in the register.

Net Zero Review - Question (1 Oct 2020)

Baroness Hayman: I am grateful to the Minister for that reply, and for her recognition that costs are not the only issue to be taken into account. The Covid crisis demonstrates to us every day the need to assess the effects of individual policies in the round, not simply against a single metric. So does the Minister agree that the magnitude of the threats from unrestrained climate change means that when we...

Covid-19 - Statement (23 Sep 2020)

Baroness Hayman: My Lords, during the Statement yesterday the Prime Minister spoke of Parliament’s ability to “take forward its business in a covid-secure way”.—[ Official Report, Commons, 22/9/20; col. 798.] Does the noble Baroness the Leader of the House recognise that there are grave concerns about how we are taking that business forward and the quality and effectiveness of current debate and...

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No. 2) (England) (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (18 Sep 2020)

Baroness Hayman: My Lords, like others, I find playing the game of legislative scrutiny catch-up unsatisfying and less than we should be doing as parliamentarians. I address my remarks to the rule of six, which was mentioned at the end of the Minister’s speech, and to one specific provision: the decision, in England, to include primary school-aged children in the total of people allowed in the gathering of...

House of Lords: Number of Members - Question (16 Sep 2020)

Baroness Hayman: My Lords, when numbers in your Lordships’ House go up, public respect for the House goes down. The Minister said that the previous Prime Minister did not endorse a cap on the size of the House, and that is quite correct, but she did commit to restraint in appointments. Given how seriously the House takes the issue of reducing numbers, can the Minister tell me what conversations the noble...

Electric Vehicles - Question (10 Sep 2020)

Baroness Hayman: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to encourage the uptake of electric vehicles.

Electric Vehicles - Question (10 Sep 2020)

Baroness Hayman: My Lords, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper, and declare my interests as set out in the register.

Electric Vehicles - Question (10 Sep 2020)

Baroness Hayman: I am grateful to the Minister. The environmental benefits of transition to electric vehicles are well understood, but I wonder whether she has seen the recent report of the Local Government Association, Decarbonising Transport - Accelerating the Uptake of Electric Vehicles, which powerfully sets out the benefits, in terms of economic recovery and job creation across the country, of investment...

Trade Bill - Second Reading (8 Sep 2020)

Baroness Hayman: My Lords, as the final Back-Bench speaker after a wide range of fascinating contributions, not least two outstanding maiden speeches, it is tempting to continue some of the arguments that have been made. However, I will be disciplined, save to endorse the powerful contributions on the need for improved transparency, parliamentary scrutiny and protection for the NHS. I want to focus on the...

Aid Spending - Private Notice Question (2 Sep 2020)

Baroness Hayman: My Lords, our overseas aid programme is under a triple threat: the questioning of the commitment to 0.7%; the reduced value of the 0.7% because of the post-Covid recession; and the subverting of aid spending into quite different areas, such as defence. Does the Minister accept that an effective aid programme is, in fact, firmly in the UK’s national interest and enhances our reputation...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Coronavirus: Disease Control (4 Aug 2020)

Baroness Hayman: To ask Her Majesty's Government to publish their current assessment of the relative impact of different risk factors including (1) age, (2) gender, (3) ethnicity, and (4) specific health conditions, on the (a) incidence, and (b) increased risk, of serious illness from COVID-19 for individuals; and what plans they have to develop an individual risk analysis tool to aid (1) Government, and...

Agriculture Bill - Committee (7th Day): Amendment 275 (28 Jul 2020)

Baroness Hayman: My Lords, I should apologise to the Committee for making my first contribution on the Agriculture Bill at what I think is the seventh hour of the seventh day. I hope the Committee will give me a few minutes to speak to the amendment to which I have added my name, and which has been so ably described by my noble friends Lord Cameron and Lord Krebs. Their comprehensive and lucid explanations...

East Africa: Food Security - Question (13 Jul 2020)

Baroness Hayman: My Lords, I declare my interest as a trustee of the Disasters Emergency Committee. That committee is launching a coronavirus appeal tomorrow to protect refugees and displaced people in some of the world’s most vulnerable countries, including South Sudan, Yemen and Syria. Given the devastating consequences of the virus for those already desperately vulnerable people, will the Government...

Committee on Climate Change: Progress Report - Question (1 Jul 2020)

Baroness Hayman: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the report by the Committee on Climate Change Reducing UK Emissions: 2020 Progress Report to Parliament, published on 25 June.
