Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Schedule 1 - Voter identification (22 Sep 2021)

Fleur Anderson: I was as surprised as the witnesses from Peterborough and Birmingham councils when the chief electoral officer from Northern Ireland said that she needed 70 additional staff during the election period. Up until then, the evidence from Birmingham and Peterborough was that we would need a handful of additional staff through the year to give out ID cards, and then a surge, but to hear that 70...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Schedule 1 - Voter identification (22 Sep 2021)

Fleur Anderson: I beg to move amendment 24, in schedule 1, page 63, line 2, leave out from “the” to end of line 22 and insert “Electoral Commission.” This amendment would make the Electoral Commission, rather than returning officers, responsible for producing and administering electoral identity documents.

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Schedule 1 - Voter identification (22 Sep 2021)

Fleur Anderson: Thank you very much, Sir Edward, and I welcome the Minister to her place. Every vote clearly counts, and I think we can all agree on that. For example, in the Derby City Council election earlier this year, Darley ward was won by one vote. That one vote changed who was in charge and who had the majority on the council, moving it towards a Conservative group. Government Members would be happy...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Clause 1 - Voter Identification (22 Sep 2021)

Fleur Anderson: I agree with the hon. Gentleman’s concern that this is a disproportionate Bill and that it will stop people turning out—they will just sit on their hands. We will not know whether they have gone or not. From the research we have on the pilots, there was an indication of a real disparity between different areas, age groups and other groups in terms of the inclination, or disinclination,...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Clause 1 - Voter Identification (22 Sep 2021)

Fleur Anderson: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that there are different types of prevention of electoral fraud? One was outlined in the evidence from Peterborough. The witnesses said they could put up CCTV cameras, which would cost them nothing because they would borrow them from the police. That is a much more proportionate measure to prevent fraud, and there would not be the risk that it would stop people...

Decarbonising Aviation — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 Sep 2021)

Fleur Anderson: I thank the Minister and all Members who have contributed to a very important, timely and strong debate, with many points for the Minister to take away and new ideas on how to go about meeting this challenging opportunity. There is a high awareness among the public that they want to do the right thing when they are flying. That has come through loud and clear; our constituents could not be...

Decarbonising Aviation — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 Sep 2021)

Fleur Anderson: I beg to move, That this House has considered decarbonising aviation. It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair, Sir Gary. I thank colleagues for taking the time to participate in this important debate, which my constituents, and no doubt those of all Members, will be watching with interest. My constituents in Putney are under the flightpath and they have plenty of opportunity to have a close...

Decarbonising Aviation — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 Sep 2021)

Fleur Anderson: I agree with the hon. Lady that we need to look at a range of ways to tackle carbon in the aviation industry. I am disappointed that the “Decarbonising Transport” paper does not include measures such as the one that she has recommended. Too often, sustainable aviation fuel is used to give the illusion of environmental action, but there is a danger of greenwashing because of an...

Decarbonising Aviation — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 Sep 2021)

Fleur Anderson: I agree that airlines need to be able to replace their aircraft to speed up the level of decarbonisation, so we need incentives for that as well. A return flight from London to San Francisco emits around 5.5 tonnes of CO2 equivalent per person, which is more than twice the emissions produced by a family car in a year and about half the average carbon footprint of someone living in Britain....

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Australasia and Canada: Foreign Relations (21 Sep 2021)

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Gavin Millar QC gave evidence. (16 Sep 2021)

Fleur Anderson: Thank you, Mr Millar. It is a pleasure to see you this afternoon, and thank you for your evidence. Can I just ask about the relationship between this Bill and the European convention on human rights, particular the right to vote, obviously? Concerns have been expressed, for example by the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller community, among others, that the Bill will reduce the ability to vote and will...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Gavin Millar QC gave evidence. (16 Sep 2021)

Fleur Anderson: That is very concerning. Thank you.

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Examination of Witness (16 Sep 2021)

Fleur Anderson: Good afternoon, Maurice. Thank you for coming to speak to the Committee. You said earlier that this does not solve the problem. Can you say anything about things that would solve the problem that you see of lower voting numbers among the black community? Just for the record, there was only one trial of the ID pilot scheme in the format that is in the Bill. That was in Woking, which has an 84%...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Green Homes Grant Scheme (16 Sep 2021)

Fleur Anderson: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, how many meetings he has held or attended to discuss the potential merits of introducing a scheme to replace the Green Homes Grant scheme since applications to that scheme have closed; and with whom those meetings were with.

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Afghanistan: Immigration (16 Sep 2021)

Fleur Anderson: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, whether her Department holds data on air quality for (a) Putney constituency and (b) Wandsworth borough for each of the last five years.

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Sep 2021)

Fleur Anderson: Q Rob, I would like to go back to the practicalities and your thinking about how you would roll out voter ID. How many additional staff do you think you would need all year round for the applications that come in? We heard earlier that Northern Ireland has ID clinics. How many additional staff do you think you would need for the election period and on the day itself? To add to that, which...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Sep 2021)

Fleur Anderson: Q Can I ask Peter Stanyon about the practicalities of issuing a voter ID card on the day? I think we all know of local elections where it is literally a handful of votes—I was involved in one ward where there were five votes between three candidates—so we know that it is really important that every single person who is eligible to vote can vote on the day. I think Virginia said that...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Sep 2021)

Fleur Anderson: Please do.
