Baroness Randerson: To ask His Majesty's Government what progress they have made on their plans for new guidance to replace Southern Access to Heathrow: Strategic Objectives, published on their website on 4 November 2019; and, further to the answer by the Minister of the State for Transport on 22 July 2020 (HC Deb col 2268), in which he said that he was keen to “move forward at pace”, what specific steps...

Road User Charging Schemes — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (26 Jun 2023)

Louie French: ...about the last Labour Government’s proposals for the purchase of diesel vehicles. When Sadiq Khan was the Transport Secretary at the end of their time in government, he was also in favour of Heathrow expansion. He does not like to talk about that either. One of his most fundamental policies and investments during his mayoralty is the Silvertown tunnel, which will encourage many more...

Backbench Business: Mariana Dam Disaster — [Mrs Pauline Latham in the Chair] (22 Jun 2023)

Jim Shannon: ...of the impact and the people affected. It is more than the distance between where we are sitting in Westminster Hall and my Strangford constituency, and my journey from Belfast City airport to Heathrow on Monday and returning tonight. I travel on that plane at massive speed and the flight takes an hour, from Northern Ireland across the south-east of England. The Mariana dam disaster was...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Qatar Airways at Cardiff Airport (20 Jun 2023)

Mark Drakeford: .... And that means that while there are obligations on Cardiff Airport, there's no funding at all from those who imposed those obligations in the first place.  That is not true of big airports like Heathrow, to which Natasha Asghar referred, but it is true for small, regional airports that don't have the same level of resources. So, my message would be very clear indeed: that level of...

Public Order Act 1986 (Serious Disruption to the Life of the Community) Regulations 2023 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (13 Jun 2023)

Lord Hogan-Howe: ...problems were not just around the lack of clarity from the Supreme Court decisions but due to some of the protests that were taking place and the disruption they were causing—for example, around Heathrow and many significant things we need to keep our people safe and secure. The law was being abused in a way that was hurting too many people. For all those reasons, I support the regret...

Public Order (12 Jun 2023)

John Martin McDonnell: The history of protest around Heathrow is actually an example of a model relationship between protesters and local police. It has worked very well up to now. We have had some issues. One protester who was with me in the negotiations between the police and the climate camp was, I now discover, a police officer—part of the spycops situation. But what I am saying is that it puts people in an...

Transport: Topical Questions ( 8 Jun 2023)

David Simmonds: I have heard concerns from many constituents who are business users of Heathrow airport that it is now by some margin the most expensive airport in the world. Will my right hon. Friend consider looking at the regulatory model, bringing it more into line with other airports in the United Kingdom to ensure that its charges become much more competitive in future?

Electronic Passport Control Systems - Question ( 7 Jun 2023)

Viscount Stansgate: My Lords, my interest in this is that I was at Heathrow at the time in question. My flight was cancelled and I found myself in the unusual position of entering the UK barely two hours after I had left it. When I re-entered, it was just before the incident that we are discussing and I could not get through the e-gates, so I had to queue up. I can tell the House that, as I am sure the Minister...

Heathrow Airport Expansion (24 May 2023)

Fleur Anderson: I thank all Members who have taken part in this important debate; they all added a different perspective and added to the case, giving strong reasons for why this is a deeply flawed plan. Heathrow expansion is not in the planet’s interest or the national interest. I implore the Government to stop supporting the plan and invest in trains instead. Question put and agreed to. Resolved, That...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Aviation: Freight (22 May 2023)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...noise can disturb people’s sleep - with the potential for health impacts. To strike a balance between the benefits and detriments, the Government sets restrictions on night flights at Gatwick, Heathrow and Stansted airports, and local planning authorities set restrictions at other airports. For the airports where restrictions are set by Government, the Government regularly consults...

Health Inequalities: North-west London (15 May 2023)

Rupa Huq: ...are experienced four times as much by black mums as by the population at large, and that poorer communities living by main roads breathe more polluted air—plus, in north-west London we have Heathrow airport, which is ever hungry to expand despite the climate crisis. I did not get on to any of that because the debate could have gone on and on, but I will say that acting on health...

Illegal Migration Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (10 May 2023)

Baroness Chakrabarti: .... Low points have included: Home Office obstruction of safe passage for so many fleeing the Nazis; the racist treatment of the east African Asians in 1968; virginity testing of Hindu brides at Heathrow Airport in 1979; and, of course, the still unresolved Windrush scandal of more recent times. This is not to deny prouder moments, but to acknowledge our mixed record and the importance of...

Rail Infrastructure: Wales — [Judith Cummins in the Chair] (10 May 2023)

Huw Merriman: ...West Coast services. HS2 will free up capacity on the existing west coast main line, which could be used for additional services.

Member for Neath mentioned, without having to go via London Paddington. HS2 will continue to...

Energy Bill [Lords] ( 9 May 2023)

Chris Grayling: ...important to this country. Both sides of the House have agreed in the past that its importance needs to be supported and protected. That was noted in particular when we voted on the expansion of Heathrow airport: the vast majority of Members supported the industry on that night. We have to continue doing so while accepting that the industry has to transform itself. It cannot simply stand...

Scottish Parliament: Coronation of King Charles III and The Queen ( 9 May 2023)

Alex Cole-Hamilton: ..., and of championing environmentalism. It was he who first publicly warned of the effects of plastic pollution, more than 50 years ago. He also deserves credit for turning down the offer of having Heathrow terminal 5 named after him because of the importance of tackling aviation for the climate emergency. Our new Queen is also known for her public service, and Her Majesty has done...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (11th Day) (Continued): Amendment 284 (24 Apr 2023)

Lord Moylan: My Lords, I am grateful to noble Lords who have taken part in this short debate. I shall start briefly with the noble Lord, Lord Kennedy of Southwark, being keen to fly. He said at the end about Heathrow expansion, “We should get on with it”. I am not necessarily a believer that textual exegesis is the right way to approach a winding-up speech, even in your Lordships’ House, but this...
