Antimicrobial Resistance - Motion to Take Note (2 May 2019)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Lansley, on securing this debate. My contribution will focus on just the farming aspect of the issue.

One of the lessons is that we cannot divide human health from the health of the animals we eat. If animals are kept in a way that...

Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions - Motion to Take Note (2 May 2019)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: My Lords, in February 2004, I introduced a debate on climate change in your Lordships’ House.

The Blair Government took Sir David King’s advice seriously...

International Women’s Day - Motion to Take Note (7 Mar 2019)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: My Lords, there are some debates in your Lordships’ House that are remarkable by their gender divide. Today's debate has 35 speakers, of whom about 85% are women; I do not think it is any the poorer for that, and I am honoured to take part in it and see many whom I have come to regard as friends on other Benches. When we have a debate in the House on defence, weapons or war—

Nowhere is this starker than in the area of nuclear weapons.

River Ecosystems - Question (27 Feb 2019)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: My Lords, among the most important components of sewage that have become more detrimental to wildlife are the pharmaceuticals going down the lavatory as part of human sewage.

Can sewage treatment plants do anything to improve this situation?

Climate Change - Motion to Take Note (24 Jan 2019)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: My Lords, in declaring my interest as a vineyard owner, I am intrigued by the suggestion of the noble Lord, Lord Hunt of Chesterton, that vineyard-based solar panels are a practical idea.
