Storm Arwen - Statement (2 Dec 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: The Minister may have heard of a small village in Cumbria called Ullock. In Ullock, we were without power from Friday evening through to Tuesday afternoon, so I have an acute understanding of the impact of Storm Arwen and the extreme weather it brought, which has been so challenging for the district network operators to fix, but it now appears that we were fortunate in that we were off for...

Power Outages: North of England - Private Notice Question (2 Dec 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I feel increasingly frustrated by the lack of appreciation of the fact that many residents in the rural north have felt utterly abandoned by the Government. What have the Government done practically to support people who have had no heating, no water and no hot food? It is not good enough—I am really sorry to say this. The Government knew the extent of the crisis in advance. The noble...

Water: Sewage - Question (1 Dec 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: Surfers Against Sewage has an annual water quality report which found that water companies have actually increased the amount of raw sewage dumped into our rivers and seas—an 87% increase from last year. The Government have now said that they have the tools to act and hold water companies to account. I am pleased that they now see that sewage discharges are completely unacceptable. The...

Smoke-free Pavements - Question (24 Nov 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: According to Keep Britain Tidy, cigarette butts are the most littered item. They also have the highest levels of toxicity and are the least recovered, leaching into the ground and into our water systems. What are the Government doing to ensure that the tobacco industry pays towards the costs of cleaning them up and driving down such pollution?

National Food Strategy Report - Question (17 Nov 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: We strongly support the recommendations that the report makes to ensure better access to healthy food for those on the lowest incomes. Can the Minister confirm that the Government will adopt without delay the calls to increase eligibility to free school meals and the value of healthy start vouchers as well as the extension of the holiday activities and food programme?

Environment Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (9 Nov 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I will particularly address the amendments from the Government and in the name of my noble friend Lord Adonis on water quality, in Motions C and C1. First, I thank the Minister and Defra officials for their time in listening to our concerns throughout the passage of this Bill. While we welcome the government amendment to improve water quality, we must be clear that the Government...

Catchment Based Approach’s Chalk Stream Restoration Strategy 2021 - Question for Short Debate (3 Nov 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Chidgey, for securing this opportunity for your Lordships to debate this critical environment issue. As we have heard, England has 85% of the world’s chalk streams. We also know that these precious and unique freshwater ecosystems are at risk. We have heard from noble Lords about their importance to wildlife and flora. The noble Lord, Lord Addington,...

Fishing: France - Private Notice Question (1 Nov 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords—

Fishing: France - Private Notice Question (1 Nov 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, it is appalling how much this has escalated over the weekend. What conversations, if any, has Defra had with the noble Lord, Lord Frost, to urge him to help to resolve the situation? Exactly what urgent talks are taking place with Defra’s French counterparts to de-escalate the situation so that British and French fishers can get on with their jobs safely? Licences were mentioned;...

Farming Rules for Water - Question (1 Nov 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: Clearly, sorting out pollution in our rivers is absolutely critical. As the Minister said, we have talked about this time and again on the Agriculture Act and the Environment Bill. My understanding is that a statutory review of the regulations was undertaken by Defra at the turn of the year and was due to report last April, but we have not seen this yet. Can the Minister explain the delay and...

Environment Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion H1 (as an amendment to Motion H) (26 Oct 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: In the interests of time, and due to the fact that noble Lords have made important contributions to this debate, I hope that your Lordships will not be too disappointed that I have decided to completely tear up my speech. Instead, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Bakewell, for giving us the opportunity to return to the important issue of protecting pollinators from pesticides. I also thank...

Environment Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion A (26 Oct 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, when the Minister, Rebecca Pow, introduced the government amendments in the other place last week she said: “The Bill is packed with positive measures … I am delighted that the Government have improved it even further.”—[Official Report, Commons, 20/10/21; col. 791.] But many of these improvements were ones that the Government had resisted as being not necessary or...

Culling of Pigs - Question (14 Oct 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I am very pleased to hear that there will be an imminent announcement, because the Government’s response—including the Prime Minister’s—to this crisis has been pretty hopeless so far, to put it mildly. Unfortunately, it has been catastrophic to many pig farmers already because the Government have taken so long to act. What are the Government’s projections as to the impact on the pig...

Environment Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 126 (15 Sep 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Bennett of Manor Castle, for tabling this amendment and for her very comprehensive introduction. We had an interesting discussion on ecocide in Committee following the amendment then tabled by the noble Baroness, Lady Bennett, and we have done so again today. As the noble Baroness and others have clearly laid out the arguments on this issue, I do not...

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

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I am very pleased to support Amendment 118, tabled by the noble Baroness, Lady Boycott, to which I have added my name. I commend her for the way she so ably introduced it—her knowledge is far greater than mine. We have strongly welcomed the National Food Strategy and its recommendations that aim to deliver “healthy, affordable food” and build a sustainable agriculture sector...

Environment Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 106 (15 Sep 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, we have been debating a number of amendments in this group that seek to strengthen Schedule 17. The first is Amendment 106 on forestry commodities, in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Randall of Uxbridge. He has clearly explained what his amendment sets out to achieve and, importantly, why it is needed. His speech may have been longer than normal, but it was important to hear his...

Environment Bill - Report (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 75 (13 Sep 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: Well—follow that. I thank my noble friend Lord Berkeley for moving this amendment. He has identified a situation that clearly needs rectifying. We should thank him for drawing the Government’s attention to this. I hope that the Minister has understood the concerns raised and the potential way forward outlined so clearly by my noble friend today. It was interesting to listen to the noble...

Environment Bill - Report (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 64 (13 Sep 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Carrington, for the introduction to his various amendments. As he said, Clause 84 removes the need, from 2028, to pay compensation to the holders of environmentally damaging abstraction licences when those damaging licences are amended or revoked. Although we have listened carefully to the concerns expressed by the noble Lord, we believe that we should...

Environment Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 59 (13 Sep 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I will speak to Amendments 59 and 60 in the name of the noble Duke, the Duke of Wellington, and offer our firm support should he decide to test the opinion of the House. I will also briefly talk to Amendment 82 in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Dannatt, and to Amendment 83 proposed by the noble Lord, Lord Chidgey, to which I have added my name. We had lengthy debates on water...
