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 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 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 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 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...

Nitrate-free Bacon and Ham - Question (18 Oct 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, while we must not cause alarm by overstating any risks posed by nitrates and nitrites in bacon and other cured meats, we cannot deny that a growing body of evidence links these chemicals to various illnesses. Although we may not have an appetite for a full ban, many other countries are taking clear steps to limit the use of nitrates and nitrites in pork products. So does the...

Social Housing (Regulation) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 1 (18 Oct 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, we believe that this is a very important Bill and broadly, it has our support. Today, we are discussing areas where we think it could be improved. I thank the Minister and her officials for the attention they have provided to our amendments and for the discussions we have had; they have been extremely helpful and we very much appreciate that. My Amendment 3 would ensure that the...

Social Housing (Regulation) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 4 (18 Oct 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I shall introduce my Amendment 23. I thank the Minister for her introduction of her amendments, for listening to the debate on this in Committee and for bringing the amendments forward today. The government amendments really address competence and skills and, to my mind, the industry should already have competence and skills as part of its training and how it operates. The question...

Social Housing (Regulation) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 4 (18 Oct 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, having looked at the classification process on the ONS website, I see that it states: “HM Treasury may … submit policy proposals for classification advice from the Economic Statistics Classification Committee … either on its own behalf if it is the policy lead, or on behalf of another department”. It looks to me like the issue could have been put to the ONS for advice ahead...

Social Housing (Regulation) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 4 (18 Oct 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: Could we perhaps have the official response to the Treasury, if it has put forward a request?

Social Housing (Regulation) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 5 (18 Oct 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I reiterate what the noble Baroness has said. It is good that what was said in Committee was listened to. We support the amendments and thank the Minister. Amendment 5 agreed.

Social Housing (Regulation) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 17 (18 Oct 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I shall be brief because much has been said that needs to be said, and we had quite a debate on this in Committee. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Best, for the amendments he put down in Committee and again on Report, and for all the hard work and time he has put into moving this issue forward so that we have reached a stage where the Government have recognised that more needed to be...

Social Housing (Regulation) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 23 (18 Oct 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I have listened very carefully to the Minister’s response to my amendment. However, my strong feeling—which is supported, as I said, by Grenfell United—is that professionalism is very important in the industry. I do not believe that the Government’s amendments go far enough, so I would like to test the opinion of the House. Ayes 171, Noes 175.

Warm Hubs - Question (20 Oct 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, in addition to supporting organisations in providing warm hubs, since 2011 the Labour-led Government in Wales have invested almost £400 million into more than 67,000 homes to improve energy efficiency. Will the Minister commit to improving energy efficiency in homes across the UK? I ask her to begin by accepting the amendment from the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman, to the social...

Growth Plan 2022 - Question (25 Oct 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, the Minister mentioned the environmental land management schemes. The Secretary of State—or is he now the previous Secretary of State?—had to deny plans that the new schemes were going to be ditched, but of course, that was before the Conservative Party crashed the economy. So can the Minister guarantee not only that ELMS is here to stay and that incentives will remain at...

Environment Act 2021: Targets - Question (25 Oct 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, despite compelling evidence of the harm caused by toxic air, the Government repeatedly resisted attempts to put World Health Organization targets into the Environment Act. As there is no sign of those targets, does the Minister understand why so many people doubt the Government’s commitment to clean air? What assessment have they made of the costs to human health of their inaction...

Housing: Manifesto Commitment - Question (26 Oct 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, following on from the question from the noble Lord, Lord Mackenzie, does the Minister agree that the Government should promote carbon-neutral homes with clean energy sources as part of any drive to increase housebuilding? What steps are the Government taking to ensure that environmentally sustainable homes are built as part of meeting housebuilding targets?
