High Speed Rail (West Midlands–Crewe) Bill - Second Reading (9 Sep 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, I am sorry to be slow in rising to my feet to speak, but I was so fascinated by the other speeches. I agree that the Minister gave a passionate opening speech, but I was not particularly convinced by it because I have huge concerns about HS2. Saying that there were 17,000 pages of environmental assessments did not really sway me, because the crucial thing is what is in those...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands–Crewe) Bill - Second Reading (9 Sep 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: Shouting at us for longer than the advisory speaking time really does not convince anyone. It does not look good and I think that we ought to have a little more courtesy.

High Speed Rail (West Midlands–Crewe) Bill - Second Reading (9 Sep 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: The noble Lord, Lord Framlingham, stuck to seven minutes.

Nuclear Power Stations - Question (9 Sep 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the impact of a warming climate on the operational risks of nuclear power stations, particularly in the light of the reduction in capacity of nuclear reactors in France in the July heatwave.

Nuclear Power Stations - Question (9 Sep 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: I thank the Minister for his Answer, but I did not hear anything about climate change. If noble Lords remember, this Parliament declared—I think it was at the end of April—a climate emergency. Every year, the Greenland ice sheet loses 300 cubic kilometres of ice on average—that is just Greenland—and we could face sea level rises. I would have liked to have heard some policies that are...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Report: Amendment 1 (6 Sep 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, I heard the noble Lord say that this was a mistake. I am curious as to how he knows that. Does he have some inside knowledge—not just gossip?

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (2) (4 Sep 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: Oh, not at all. I am so sorry; you are completely wrong on that. I thank the noble Lord for sitting down; I wish it were for longer. As I have said previously here, I voted leave; I did not vote for no deal. What I am trying to do here today is stop no deal. The person who had the power is the Prime Minister, who decided to prorogue Parliament, to close it down and to shut it up. It is not...

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Motion (4 Sep 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: I thank the noble Lord. One way, of course, would be if Prorogation were delayed so that this House had plenty of time to discuss it. Will the noble Lord undertake to lobby the Prime Minister on that?

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Motion (4 Sep 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: Does the noble Lord accept that a guillotine would not be necessary if noble Lords undertook not to filibuster?

Sahel: Climate Change - Question (24 Jul 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, even if we get to our net carbon zero target by 2050, parts of the world will have become uninhabitable. Will the Government publish a climate migration strategy? We have been polluting for 200 years, so we have a duty to take our fair share of climate migrants.

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill - Committee (Continued): Amendment 4 (22 Jul 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, I support all the amendments in this group and some of the later ones, particularly those in the names of the noble Lords, Lord Blunkett and Lord Bethell, and the noble Baroness, Lady Smith of Basildon. I was sad that I was not able to take part in the Second Reading but I hope to make up for it now. For me, the pertinent questions are: who is the restoration and renewal project...

Biodiversity Duty: Public Authorities - Question (22 Jul 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, one disastrous tactic being used that really damages biodiversity is the concept of biodiversity offsetting. What happens is that we lose ancient, well-established areas that are biodiversity rich and create new areas that are not. “One tree out, three in” sounds great, but if that one tree is 100 years old and the three are only 10 years old, that is not so great. Will the...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Report: Amendment 2 (17 Jul 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: I would like to make two points. First, I voted for Brexit, not for a no-deal Brexit, and that must be true for a lot of other people. Can the noble Lord please stop dividing us into these two camps? Secondly—I am sure that this is unparliamentary—I cannot see the point of what the noble Lord is saying. He is ranging so far across this debate that he is losing sight of the very simple...

Nuclear Weapons (International Relations Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jul 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, I declare an interest as a vice-president of the London Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. I too congratulate the International Relations Committee and its chair the noble Lord, Lord Howell, on its excellent report. When I am given a report like this, I turn immediately to the summary in the hope that it means I do not have to read the rest of the document. Quite honestly, the first...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Committee: Amendment 6 (15 Jul 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: I am so sorry to interrupt the noble Lord, but he may know that I voted to leave the EU—and, if asked again, I would do the same thing—but I did not vote to leave with no deal. There are thousands and thousands of people like me, so it is only right that Parliament gets another say on this. A no-deal option is not what a lot of us voted for.

Children: Criminal Exploitation - Question (9 Jul 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, a few weeks ago I asked the Minister about the issue of child spies: children who are caught committing drugs offences, for example, by the police, who then send them back into the gangs to be spies for the police—it is an incredibly dangerous manoeuvre. A whistleblower told me that the police were apparently going to ramp up the numbers, and the Minister said that she would check...

Carbon Budgets - Question (8 Jul 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to adjust carbon budgets in the light of past performance and the Paris Agreement.

Carbon Budgets - Question (8 Jul 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: One of the ways that we as a nation are cheating on our carbon budget at the moment is by importing some of the most polluting goods from abroad, which means that the countries producing them carry the carbon emission burden. Will the Government now commit to capturing those offshore emissions so that we can understand fully how polluting we are as a nation?

Environment and Climate Emergency - Question (1 Jul 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, I am absolutely delighted that the Government think they can meet that target but so far, I have not seen the sort of action that is needed. We need a massively rethought-out new green deal so that that we can discuss it in this Chamber and suggest ways forward for government.

Climate Change Act 2008 (2050 Target Amendment) Order 2019 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (26 Jun 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: Yes, I am well aware that all politicians can get it wrong at various times, and she was wrong there. What has happened to the Conservative Party in the meantime? We have a Government who resist onshore wind installations, which would supply cheap, clean energy, while supporting dirty, expensive fracking. Fracking is not the answer: it is a way to pump more fossil fuels into the atmosphere...
