Environment Bill - Third Reading: Motion (13 Oct 2021)

Baroness Parminter: My Lords, it is appropriate that we have the Third Reading today as we see the close of the high-level segment of COP 15 and the publication of the Kunming Declaration, which makes it clear that setting nature “on a path to recovery is a defining challenge of this decade”. This House has done its usual proper job of scrutiny of the Bill and has proposed measures to strengthen it that are...

Environment Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 122 (15 Sep 2021)

Baroness Parminter: My Lords, I have no expertise in this area and no interest to declare, but some of the happiest memories with my two young girls were taking them to see Santa on the steam train at the rural life centre in Tilford every Christmas. However, tonight, I speak at the request of my colleague, the noble Lord, Lord Bradshaw, who cannot be with us because he has had a fall. I make it clear to the...

Environment Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 118 (15 Sep 2021)

Baroness Parminter: My Lords, sadly, I was too slow to get my name on to this amendment, but I think that it has complete support around the House. I have just one point, which is that this is something that we must be focused on not only in the UK but globally. As the noble Earl, Lord Caithness, said, we must have farming that is absolutely hand in glove with nature. When the Select Committee on Environment and...

Environment Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 117 (15 Sep 2021)

Baroness Parminter: My Lords, I rise very briefly to say that we support the intent of this amendment. Given the competing demands on land in our country, we believe it is time for a national framework. If it works in other parts of the continent and in other parts of the United Kingdom, the time has come and we would support it. I fear the Minister will say that, for a number of reasons, he is not able to...

Environment Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 99 (15 Sep 2021)

Baroness Parminter: My Lords, I add the support of our Benches for this important regulation on day four of Report. As the noble Baroness, Lady Young of Old Scone, said, the habitats regulations are the jewel in the crown in terms of protecting our sites of most special protection for our wildlife and our birds, our bitterns and our nightingales. It has not been mentioned in this debate so far today that the...

Environment Bill - Report (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 92 (13 Sep 2021)

Baroness Parminter: Extinction Rebellion.

Environment Bill - Report (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 90 (13 Sep 2021)

Baroness Parminter: My Lords, my Amendment 91 in this group seeks to give some bite to the nature recovery strategies, which are a very welcome addition into this Bill by this Government. As they stand, however, local authorities will be producing them but they will be almost irrelevant in terms of the planning process, because they would not be a material consideration. My amendment therefore seeks to ensure...

Environment Bill - Report (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 84A (13 Sep 2021)

Baroness Parminter: My Lords, I hear what the noble Lord, Lord Blencathra, says, but I still think the noble Lord, Lord Krebs, raised some real concerns that this House deserves answers to, and I hope the Minister, in his summing up, can give the reassurances the noble Lord, Lord Krebs, has asked for. I wanted to briefly add my voice to the others in support of Amendment 87, which deals with the issue of...

Environment Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 26 (8 Sep 2021)

Baroness Parminter: My Lords, I added my name to this amendment in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Anderson of Ipswich, and we wholeheartedly support it. My particular concern is around the planning issue, which the noble Lord, Lord Duncan of Springbank, has rightly articulated. My worry is that the Government have introduced the provisions they have because they fear that there is currently too much weight...

Environment Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 22 (8 Sep 2021)

Baroness Parminter: My Lords, I will not detain the House for long because the noble Lord, Lord Krebs, has made a compelling case for his amendment, to which I was very happy to add my name. I just want to add a reflection on the point which I think all of us feel very strongly about. There will sometimes be occasions when the OEP will have to take Ministers to task. There has to be not only a degree of...

Environment Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 20 (8 Sep 2021)

Baroness Parminter: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who have supported my amendment, and the Minister for his response. His comments on the Treasury reiterated the point about flexibility. This Government have got to decide either that nature is a macroeconomic consideration that they want to take seriously, or that it is not. Secondly, regarding his comments about the MoD, when again, he reiterated the points...

Environment Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (8 Sep 2021)

Baroness Parminter: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness for moving the amendment in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Bird. I support the sentiments and the important issues that it raises and thank her for her remarks and her support for my Amendment 20. The point of Amendment 20 is to help the Government’s policy statement on the environmental principles to put environmental protection at the heart of...

Environment Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 11 (8 Sep 2021)

Baroness Parminter: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Brown of Cambridge, for her excellent opening remarks. As she rightly said, a number of us spoke at some length on this matter in Committee. We have had excellent expositions from her and supporting evidence from the noble Lord, Lord Deben, of the merits of this case and why we need these statutory targets. It is not just this House that is calling...

Environment Bill - Report (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 5 (6 Sep 2021)

Baroness Parminter: My Lords, government Amendment 6 is truly world-leading. Here in the UK it will be pivotal in delivering the Government’s ambitions through the Environment Bill, and indeed it could be pivotal globally—as the noble Baroness, Lady Young of Old Scone, said—by ensuring that, in the run-up to the CBD next year, other countries deliver the level of ambition that we have. I am grateful to be...

Environment Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 2 (6 Sep 2021)

Baroness Parminter: My Lords, we very much thank the noble Baroness, Lady Bennett, for moving this amendment on soil. As noble Lords have mentioned, if we do not have soil as a priority area, how will we have the sustainable food we need in future and how will we support the essential microbial organisms that live in and on the soil? Indeed, as noble Lords including the noble Lord, Lord Deben, and the noble...
