Private Rented Sector - Statement (20 Jun 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, we welcome the publication of the Government’s White Paper and the recognition in the Statement that “conditions in our private rented sector are simply not good enough”. I want to consider some of the 12 points of action that it introduces. Section 21 evictions will be abolished, meaning that landlords will have to prove grounds to evict tenants. New grounds will be created...

Animal Welfare: Tourist Attractions, Activities and Experiences - Question (20 Jun 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: To ask Her Majesty’s Government when they intend to introduce legislation to ban the selling of attractions, activities or experiences to tourists involving the unacceptable treatment of animals.

Animal Welfare: Tourist Attractions, Activities and Experiences - Question (20 Jun 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I thank the Minister for his response, but Save the Asian Elephants has identified some 1,200 companies in the UK promoting 300 unethical elephant attractions overseas. Can the Minister say exactly when the Government will keep their promise to ban the sale of these experiences, which are based on appalling cruelty?

Pig Farming - Motion to Take Note (16 Jun 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I declare my interest as president of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust, as set out in the register. I start by thanking the noble Baroness, Lady Harris of Richmond, for securing this debate. As she said in her introduction, the pig industry has faced an unprecedented crisis over the last 18 months due to a combination of labour shortages and Covid disruption in processing plants. The...

Fur: Import and Sale - Question (14 Jun 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, the promise to ban the import and sale of fur is part of the animals abroad Bill. I do not doubt the Minister’s commitment to this, but it was missed out of the Queen’s Speech. There is cross-party support and clear and persistent public support for banning the import and sale of fur, so can the Minister explain why the animals abroad Bill was not in the Queen’s Speech, and...

Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee - Motion for an Humble Address (26 May 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I am very pleased to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Neville-Rolfe, and to have the opportunity to congratulate Her Majesty the Queen on her Platinum Jubilee. Like others, I express my respect and admiration for her many years of service. However, unlike many previous speakers, I cannot remember the Coronation and I have never had the pleasure of meeting the Queen. I met her mother...

Social Homes for Rent - Question (26 May 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: The Government built only just under 6,000 social rent homes in 2020. That was a 12% decrease on the previous year and an 85% decrease on 11 years ago. With shortages of materials and labour, many see the target of 300,000 homes a year by the mid-2020s as almost impossible. Does the Minister still think that target is achievable?

Procurement Bill [HL] - Second Reading (25 May 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his comprehensive introduction to the Bill, which is quite complex in some areas. I begin by saying that we welcome this Bill. Changes to the procurement regime are long overdue, not least as a procurement Bill was promised in the last Session, so it is good that we finally have it before us today. I know from my experience of navigating OJEU just how...

Costs of Living - Question (25 May 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I have been listening very carefully to the Minister’s responses about everything that the Government are doing, but more families are falling into poverty. We need more than the monitoring he talked about: we need steps, and we need them now. I genuinely do not understand his response to the noble Lord about the windfall tax. Why will the Government not bring that in now?

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Pesticides: Safety (25 May 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the latest findings by the Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU) regarding the presence of rodenticide in barn owls; and what plans they have, if any, to prohibit the purchase and use of Second Generation Anticoagulant Rodenticides (SGARs) by non-professional users who are not formally trained in their use.

Food Price Inflation - Commons Urgent Question (19 May 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, there is no doubt that global events, including increased oil and gas prices, are contributing to both food and other forms of inflation. However, the Government’s response is clearly insufficient, with even the head of the CBI claiming that there is a moral imperative for the Chancellor to prevent households having to skip meals. The Secretary of State may feel that a few...

Levelling-up Report - Question (19 May 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, an IPPR report recently found that with their cuts to council funding, the Government have taken £431 from every single person and handed back just £31 in their levelling-up funds. Does the Minister accept that the Government can meet their levelling-up tests only by working with, and properly funding, local government?

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (11 May 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her very thorough introduction to what has been a wide-ranging and very interesting debate. A highlight for me was the maiden speech of the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Guildford. I very much look forward to his future contributions in your Lordships’ House. We very much welcome the fact that the Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill is included in...

Elections Bill - Commons Amendments and Reason: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (27 Apr 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, in his opening remarks, the Minister talked about the post-legislative scrutiny that is going to be on the face of the Bill and said that this would include reviewing and monitoring further forms of acceptable ID. He mentioned that the Bill includes the provision to add further acceptable forms. We welcome that. I hold the noble Lord, Lord Willetts, in the highest regard and thank...

Building Safety Bill - Commons Amendments: Motion H1 (as an amendment to Motion H) (26 Apr 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I wish to test the opinion of the House. Ayes 187, Noes 209.

Building Safety Bill - Commons Amendments: Motion A (26 Apr 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the Minister for the constructive amendments that the Government have tabled at this stage and for listening to the noble Lords, Lord Young and Lord Blencathra, who have been very helpful during the passage of the Bill. However, there are still concerns outstanding, as has just been said, so I will speak now to my Motion H1 as an amendment to Motion H. We on these Benches...

Glue Traps (Offences) Bill - Third Reading: Motion (26 Apr 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, very briefly, I want to congratulate everyone who has been involved in bringing forward this important Bill. The noble Baroness, Lady Fookes, has done us all a service in bringing it to your Lordships’ House—as did Jane Stevenson in the other place. So I welcome the Bill and thank the Government for their support.

Elections Bill - Third Reading: Motion (25 Apr 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I start by saying that I agree with the noble Lord the Minister that this Bill is improved and strengthened having gone through this House. This Bill is a clear demonstration that your Lordships’ House can really prove its worth when a Bill comes that is not really good enough. I thank the Government and the Minister for bringing forward some important changes and concessions...

Elections Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 69C (25 Apr 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, in Committee I tabled Amendment 205 to ask the Government to include in the Bill a statutory commitment to post-legislative scrutiny of the Bill, as recommended by PACAC. I want to say very briefly how much I welcome the amendments that the Minister has just introduced and to thank him very much for listening to my concerns and the concerns of other Members of this House about the...
