Rural Councils: Funding — [Mrs Pauline Latham in the Chair] (29 Nov 2023)

Alicia Kearns: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech, and I am grateful to him for bringing us together on this important topic. On the matter of disparity in funding, does he recognise that, on top of the ludicrously exaggerated funding that London councils get, they each make millions more on parking fines that they are then able to put back into their communities? That is not taken into...

Ukraine (28 Nov 2023)

Alicia Kearns: Ukraine is holding firm against one of the biggest militaries in the world and it still rightly refuses to see the mass loss of Ukrainian life. Will my right hon. Friend reassure me on the following two points? First, as there are reports that we are already seeing a reduction in artillery deliveries to Ukraine, is enough getting through? Secondly, following Medvedev’s threat to Poland,...

Energy Security and Net Zero: Topical Questions (28 Nov 2023)

Alicia Kearns: Wind energy projects have a standard compensation scheme for all local communities, but solar projects do not. Industry will not act, so I urge my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State to bring in a standard measure for all solar projects to bring fairness to clean energy in our communities.

Israel and Hamas: Humanitarian Pause (27 Nov 2023)

Alicia Kearns: This is a serious matter. The UK’s priority in the region is security and stability for the whole of the middle east, yet today Netanyahu plans to push forward with a special budget that will fund expansions of the settlements by over $80 million. As a friend, we have a duty to say to Israel, “Do not proceed with this plan. It takes us further away from peace and, frankly, it will risk...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: National Security Council (15 Nov 2023)

Alicia Kearns: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, how many National Security Council meetings at Ministerial level there have been since 1 September 2023.

Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories (14 Nov 2023)

Alicia Kearns: As of today, I am informed that no more aid will reach Gaza, not because it cannot get to the Rafah crossing or because it is piling up in Egypt, but because the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees has no fuel left and so the aid cannot be redistributed. So although I really appreciate the Government looking at maritime and air efforts, and, crucially, at the need to...

Gaza: Al-Ahli Arab Hospital Explosion (18 Oct 2023)

Alicia Kearns: The situation is unbearable, but while the horrors of last night cannot be unseen, we must not look away. Violence is increasing across the region, but also in Europe and the US. We in this House have a duty to protect British nationals, so what assessment have the Government made of whether the joint terrorism analysis centre needs to raise the threat level? Can I also have reassurance about...

Israel and Gaza (16 Oct 2023)

Alicia Kearns: Saturday’s terror attack on Israel constituted crimes against humanity—crimes so heinous that they violated our understanding of the depths of human depravity. That depravity continues today, as innocents remain held hostage by Hamas terrorists and their patrons, the state of Iran. Israel has a legitimate right to self-defence and to defeat Hamas. We can support Israel and grieve with its...

Energy Security and Net Zero: Uyghur Region: Solar Industry Sourcing (19 Sep 2023)

Alicia Kearns: I start by welcoming my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State to her place. What conversations has my hon. Friend the Minister had with the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office and the Department for Business and Trade on eradicating forced labour from our supply chains? Does he agree that we must ban the worst offending companies from our shores? Will he therefore lead a...

Energy Security and Net Zero: Topical Questions (19 Sep 2023)

Alicia Kearns: A decade ago, the onshore wind industry committed to a community benefit protocol to provide compensation of £5,000 per MW installed per annum to communities for the duration of a wind scheme. So far, solar developers have refused to do something similar, and surely that is not fair. Does my right hon. Friend agree that compensation schemes must be equal, whether wind or solar is involved?

G20 Summit (11 Sep 2023)

Alicia Kearns: Let me start by putting on record my thanks to you, Mr Speaker, and the parliamentary security and intelligence services for your personal support over the last few months. Here today, we know that across this House a real priority for Members is the safety of British nationals arbitrarily detained abroad. The Foreign Affairs Committee has recently released a report on that matter. It cannot...

Energy Bill [Lords]: New Clause 52 - Revenue certainty scheme for sustainable aviation fuel producers: consultation and report ( 5 Sep 2023)

Alicia Kearns: I know the Minister has historically been very strong on this point. I am interested in the fact that the Government have raised that point about sanctions and the possibility of sanctions, because we have not heard that before. Both the US and EU have sanctioned those who use slave labour within their supply chains. If the Government—I hope they are saying this today; I know they cannot...
