Upcoming Business – Lords: Main Chamber (3 Feb 2022)

Numbers of wild birds that will be killed annually to protect game bird interests – Baroness Hayman of Ullock. Oral questions

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (6th Day): Amendment 109G (17 Jan 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, we welcome these amendments, although, considering that the Government’s Action Plan for Animal Welfare, published early last year, said that the Government would bring in legislation to crack down on the illegal practice of hare coursing, it was a little disappointing that this was not included in the Bill from the very start. We too offer our congratulations to the right...

Building Safety - Statement (11 Jan 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, before I begin, I would like to pay tribute to my colleague Jack Dromey. Jack was a fearless campaigner for equality and justice, and always stood up for those without a voice. We will miss him. Moving to the Statement, the Grenfell Tower fire was, as we all know, a dreadful and shocking tragedy which killed 72 men, women and children and ruined the lives of many others. One of the...

Prime Minister: Meetings with First Ministers of the Devolved Governments - Question (10 Jan 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, Crisis has found that the economic aftermath of the pandemic risks exacerbating levels of homelessness right across the UK, but it has also praised the work of the Welsh Government and their measures to alleviate the immediate increase. Have the Government met with the Welsh Government to discuss best practice for reducing homelessness, and, if not, will he press them to do so?

Building Regulations: Sanitary Provision - Question (5 Jan 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: Further to the question of the noble Baroness, Lady Greengross, during debates on the Non-Domestic Rating (Public Lavatories) Bill, to which she referred, Ministers agreed that steps should be taken to encourage making new public toilets accessible for people with disabilities. Have the Government estimated how many new public toilets have opened since the passing of the Act, and what...

Environmental Land Management Schemes - Question (16 Dec 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, as the Minister knows, financial support for improving public access to the countryside is a key commitment of the new regime in the Agriculture Act. I would be interested to hear his response to the many rambling and walking groups that are expressing anger and frustration at the moment that the department is not prioritising access to the countryside.

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Third Reading: Amendment to the Motion (13 Dec 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, on these Benches we have listened to the speeches from the noble Lord, Lord Herbert of South Downs, and other noble Lords, but we cannot support the amendment. I am sure noble Lords are not surprised to hear that. I will not go into any details. At Second Reading, in Committee and on Report, we discussed in depth and at length exactly the same issues as we have today, and I am...

UK Community Renewal Fund - Question (8 Dec 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: The Minister may well think little of the analysis of the Centre for Inequality and Levelling Up, but surely he thinks it important that the most deserving communities get the support that they need for levelling up. The Centre for Inequality and Levelling Up also asks for close monitoring of who is benefiting from the current tranche of bids. What monitoring arrangements have the Government...

Smuggling: Kittens and Puppies - Question (7 Dec 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Black of Brentwood, talked about enforcement, as did my noble friend Lady Ritchie. Does the Minister believe that current rules and checks on the movement of domestic animals are strong enough to prevent so much illegal activity? In particular, will the Government ensure that, when they fulfil their policy on tackling puppy smuggling, they will also give the...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report (Continued): Amendment 39 (6 Dec 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: Noble Lords will not be surprised that I am absolutely delighted that the Government have tabled Amendment 39, which, as we have heard, has picked up the amendment I tabled in Committee and expands the definition of animals in the Bill to include decapod crustaceans and cephalopods. It has also been good to hear support from some noble Lords, although I am sorry that it seems to have made the...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report (Continued): Amendment 46 (6 Dec 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, as we have heard, this amendment sets a sunset clause on the Bill. Sunset clauses are quite rare and are usually associated with emergency legislation to deal with a time-specific problem. Recently, we have seen sunset clauses around the Coronavirus Act and previously, in the 2000s, in anti-terror legislation. This Bill is not a piece of emergency legislation passed to deal with...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report (Continued): Amendment 47 (6 Dec 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I agree; I too hold the noble Earl, Lord Caithness, in the greatest respect and the highest regard. Of course, he is absolutely right to say that any Government should consider seriously unintended consequences when considering any new legislation but, along with the noble Lord, Lord Teverson, I agree that this proposal is overly bureaucratic. Do we really need another committee? We...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report (Continued): Amendment 28 (6 Dec 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I thank the noble Lord, Lord Teverson, for making that point, which is incredibly important, particularly to me, as someone who lives in Cumbria, where we have so many problems with tree diseases and are losing so many trees. It is pitiful watching some of the woods being taken down around places such as Ennerdale and Loweswater. Coming back to Amendment 28 in the name of the noble Earl, Lord...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report (Continued): Amendment 23 (6 Dec 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I bring your Lordships back to the amendments, which are on peer review and publication, but I say one thing to the noble Lord, Lord Moylan, who entertained us wonderfully with his stories of crocodiles. Why does he think that the Government—his Government—would use “ropey advice”, as he put it, to make decisions? I find that a quite extraordinary claim, particularly given the recent...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report (Continued): Amendment 7 (6 Dec 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: Very briefly, I think the concerns on this amendment were answered in the response to the previous group. As it is not necessary to have in the Bill who should be on the committee, it is not necessary to have in it who should not be on the committee.

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report (Continued): Amendment 9 (6 Dec 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, there is a large number of amendments in this group, so in the interests of time and the number of groups yet to be debated I shall focus on Amendment 38 in my name, which would insert a new clause after Clause 3 requiring the ASC to submit an annual report on its work to both Houses of Parliament. I shall also speak to Amendment 21, in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Howard of...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report (Continued): Amendment 3 (6 Dec 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, the amendments in this group all refer to the make-up of the membership of the committee and how it is appointed. Noble Lords who were with us in Committee may remember that when we debated membership of the committee, a number of us, including me, put forward amendments about its make-up and who should be on it. By the end of that debate, I felt that it had become absurd to...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report (Continued): Amendment 2 (6 Dec 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I will talk first about the first part of Amendment 2, which looks at committee remit and policy. That has not really been discussed much in this debate so far. I draw attention to the terms of reference, because they include a lot of information about the role of the committee and policy. I put on record that we welcome a number of formal recognitions that the committee will have....

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 1 (6 Dec 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, these amendments broadly consider the remit of the committee regarding policy. Clause 1 sets up the committee. The stated purpose of the Bill is to make sure that animal sentience is taken into account when developing policy across government, but policy is not always set in aspic and I find it concerning that the majority of the amendments that have been put down in this group...

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...
