Environmental Targets - Private Notice Question (31 Oct 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I remind your Lordships’ House that the Environment Bill was introduced in July 2018. However, lengthy delays caused not just by consultation responses but by Conservative Party divisions meant that it became law only last November. During its passage, concerns were raised about the lack of targets, and the then Minister assured your Lordships’ House that they would appear by...

Social Housing (Regulation) Bill [HL] - Third Reading: Motion (31 Oct 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, this is a really important Bill and I will briefly say some thank yous. I thank all noble Lords who took part to improve the Bill as it made its passage through this House. I thank, as the Minister did, Grenfell United, Shelter and the residents who suffered most from Grenfell and have worked so hard to bring this new legislation forward, alongside the Government. I thank my noble...

Water Companies: Pollution - Question (2 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the decision by Ofwat on 3 October to penalise 11 water companies for failing to meet their targets, including on pollution incidents.

Water Companies: Pollution - Question (2 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, the Minister just mentioned that the 11 companies fined by Ofwat missed targets in a number of areas: water supply interruptions, pollution and internal sewer flooding. The problem is that these performance commitments do not set the bar particularly high, which makes it extremely worrying that so many companies are falling short, some by a considerable distance. Does he believe...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Rented Housing: Sales (3 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of any barriers to landlords selling properties with sitting tenants.

Avian Influenza - Statement (3 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, the UK is experiencing its most severe outbreak of avian influenza. Its persistence over the last year, coupled with soaring energy and feed costs, has put the British poultry sector under huge emotional and financial pressure. We welcome the Government’s announcement that a full bird housing order will come into effect from next Monday, but that decision should have been made...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Private Rented Housing: Evictions (9 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the prospects of an increase in evictions of private renters due to their landlord selling the property between 1 October 2022 and 31 March 2023; and what forecast they have made, if any, of the extent of any such increase.

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Private Rented Housing: Evictions (9 Nov 2022)

Sewage Discharges - Question (14 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, the noble Duke, the Duke of Wellington, talked about the lack of progress and frustration. The Minister talked about the storm overflow reduction plans, but they are not due to be completed until 2050. This is hardly “urgency”. Why do the Government seem happy to crack down more heavily on environmental protestors than they do on environmental polluters?

Avian Flu - Question (16 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, breeding seabirds have been badly hit, particularly great skuas. Last winter on the Solway Firth, the disease killed over 16,000 barnacle geese. Seabirds are long-lived so they take longer to reach breeding age and have fewer chicks. They are already under massive pressure from climate change, a lack of prey fish and deaths from entanglement in fishing gear. What surveillance and...

Social Housing Standards - Statement (16 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the Minister for repeating the Statement from the other place. I am sure we all agree with Secretary of State Michael Gove that Awaab Ishak’s death, after months of living in a mouldy home, is an unacceptable tragedy, so we support the Government in bringing forward legislation to ensure that housing associations responsible for social housing are held to account. Yet I...

Social Housing Standards - Statement (16 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: The noble Baroness said that she would look through Hansard and write to us. Could she look at when we are likely to see the passage of the renters reform Bill? We have talked about the importance of private rented housing compared with social housing and the Bill is critical to making progress, so I would be grateful for a response on that.

Clean Air (Human Rights) Bill [HL] - Committee: Amendment 1 (18 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Jones of Moulsecoomb, for her thorough introduction to the Bill and her explanation of the amendments. I will not go into any detail about that. However, it is important to remind noble Lords and the Minister of the seriousness of the issue we are discussing today. Air pollution has been breaching legal limits across the UK since 2010. The Government recognise...

Ballot Secrecy Bill [HL] - Committee: Amendment 1 (18 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I too thank the noble Lord, Lord Hayward, for introducing this stage of the Bill. I will be brief. At earlier stages, we debated the fact that standards matter and that they are particularly important in ensuring confidence in our voting system. Our laws need to be crystal clear and that is why the Bill is so important. It creates absolute clarity on what is and is not acceptable....

Renters Reform Bill - Question (22 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, the Government’s own White Paper admits that the private rented sector “offers the most expensive, least secure, and lowest quality housing” to nearly 4.5 million households. Will the Government introduce a new renters’ charter to give tenants more choice and more control over their homes?

Public Order Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 80 (22 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: This is so important. I do not think the Minister or the Government appreciate how vulnerable women can feel walking, particularly in the dark or on their own, and it gets dark very early in the winter. This is really serious. I also do not think they realise how much young women, particularly if they are attractive, can get hassled. If you have been hassled a lot, you can snap because you...

Police and Crime Commissioner Elections (Amendment) Order 2022 - Motion to Approve (15 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I start by thanking the Minister for her thorough introduction of these two instruments. I will look first at the police and crime commissioner elections order. I know that it is out of scope of the SI, but my noble friend Lord Jones made an important point when he talked about how we really need to look at increasing participation in these elections. They have terribly low turnouts...
