Environment Bill - Second Reading (7 Jun 2021)

the Earl of Sandwich: My Lords, the Bill is urgent and long delayed, so we must not waste time deliberating on it at length. It has been well scrutinised, but there are a number of points that the Commons have missed. My own interest is like that of most people: to prevent damage to the planet, especially to the least developed countries which have been hit hardest by climate change. However, I am also a member of...

Health Partnership Schemes: Funding - Question (7 Jun 2021)

the Earl of Sandwich: My Lords, I know that the Minister keeps a close eye on Nepal.

Nepal: Covid-19 Vaccine Request - Question (20 May 2021)

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (17 May 2021)

the Earl of Sandwich: My Lords, I am deserting foreign affairs today in favour of the environment because of the importance of climate change to all of us.

Here, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Gardiner, on his achievements as a Minister; he has...
