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...

Environment Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 51 (13 Sep 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, in my opinion this is quite an important set of amendments because they focus on some specific causes of air pollution. The noble Baroness, Lady Sheehan, ably introduced her Amendment 51, on the impact of speed on air quality, as she did in Committee, and spoke passionately about why we need to reduce speed limits to reduce PM2.5. We have heard about research on the impact of road...

Environment Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 15 (8 Sep 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Redesdale, and the noble Baroness, Lady Jones, for tabling these important amendments. Cultural and historical landmarks and environments bring recognised value to our environment. As such, this debate has raised important concerns about their omission from the Environment Bill. As the noble Lord, Lord Redesdale, said, after our debate in Committee, the...

Environment Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 11 (8 Sep 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I will speak in support of Amendments 11 and 14 in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Brown of Cambridge, to which I have added my name. I thank the noble Baroness for her introduction. In Committee, we tabled an amendment to place a statutory duty on the Secretary of State to meet any interim targets. We were very disappointed that the Government did not agree that this is...

Environment Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 4 (6 Sep 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I thank all noble Lords who have taken part in this short debate. I will be very brief because I know that we are all looking forward to a break. I will not go into any detail about individual contributions, but I thank everyone who has spoken in support of my amendments—it is very much appreciated, and it has demonstrated that there is a lot of very strong feeling in the House about the...

Environment Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 4 (6 Sep 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I rise to move Amendment 4 and speak to Amendment 12. Both are in my name and the names of the noble Baronesses, Lady Walmsley, Lady Finlay of Llandaff and Lady Jones of Moulsecoomb, and I thank them for their support. Amendment 4 would ensure that the new legal target for fine particulate matter, or PM2.5, commits the Government to reducing this pollutant to within the existing...

Ecocide - Question (21 Jul 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: Does the Minister agree that mining and deforestation activities that plague the Amazon are cases of ecocide? Does she also agree that an international law against these activities could become a catalyst for finding new and sustainable ways of operating?

National Food Strategy Independent Review - Question (20 Jul 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: The report highlights some key questions for the UK’s trade policy. The UK cannot work to transform its own food system and support people to make food choices that are better for their health and the environment if we allow foods to be imported that are produced to lower safety, environmental or welfare standards. I ask the Minister how the Government will heed the report’s warning on...

Environment Bill - Committee (8th Day): Amendment 297A (14 Jul 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I thank noble Lords for this short but quite interesting and illuminating debate. As the noble Baroness, Lady Noakes, said, the two matters we are talking about do not really sit happily together, so I will take them in turn. As we have heard, Amendment 297A in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Neville-Rolfe, would set a sunset provision after five years for regulations made under the...

Environment Bill - Committee (8th Day): Amendment 293E (14 Jul 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I offer our strong support to Amendment 293E in the name of my noble friend Lord Whitty. I thank my noble friend for his detailed and knowledgeable introduction, explaining why it is so important we do not have non-regression in chemicals industry regulation. Plans as to how the Government intend to regulate the UK chemicals sector following Brexit and our departure from EU REACH...

Environment Bill - Committee (7th Day): Amendment 260B (12 Jul 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, this is a really important group of amendments and I am pleased that, despite the late hour, we have managed to have a good debate around them. I will speak to Amendment 264ZA, in the name of my noble friend Lady Jones of Whitchurch and the noble Lord, Lord Oates, but we also support other amendments in this group and thank noble Lords for tabling them. There are some very important...
