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...

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...
