Wet Wipes: Disposal - Question (25 Jan 2022)

Baroness Quin: My Lords, I recognise that wet wipes are part of the consultation mentioned by the Minister, but given the enormous amount of damage that they do, both to the environment and in causing sewer blockages, and given too that there is cross-party support for a ban in both Houses of Parliament, will the Government bring forward measures very soon, either by secondary legislation under the...

Leasehold Reform (Ground Rent) Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 - Ground rent for existing long leases (24 Jan 2022)

Theresa Villiers: ...of conduct, a potential cap on ground rents and a ban on selling houses on a leasehold basis could be effective in stamping out wrongdoing, but without the negative potential consequences of the Bill’s widely drawn approach. As drafted, the Bill will see professional freeholders exit the market. It is disappointing that the Government have not responded to the calls on Second Reading to...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued) (24 Jan 2022)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: ...from all sides of your Lordships’ House. It is worth referring to the King’s Fund briefing, which I do not think anyone has mentioned yet. I will quote one sentence: “The measures in the Bill to address chronic staff shortages remain weak.” That is what a respected outside observer says. Your Lordships’ House is seeking to plug that gap. The noble Lord, Lord Lea, suggested that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Animal Welfare (Service Animals) Bill: Final Stage (24 Jan 2022)

Declan McAleer: I welcome the opportunity to share the views of the Committee for Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs at the Final Stage of the Animal Welfare (Service Animals) Bill. The Committee welcomes the passage of the Bill and the positive debates that have taken place throughout the Bill's stages. Members also acknowledge the overwhelming public support for the legislation and the strong...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 78 (24 Jan 2022)

Lord Patel: ...our academic clinical departments was a worldwide reputation for conducting health service-related research. We were second to none, and I mean that. We have lost that because we have changed the environment. People who work in clinical academic institutions—our so-called teaching hospitals—no longer have the environment to promote that. It was the duty of those of us who worked in...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Rivers: Sewage (24 Jan 2022)

Rachael Maskell: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, how much sewage has been released into rivers (a) nationally and (b) in York since the enactment of the Environment Bill on 9 November 2021.

Hare Coursing Bill (21 Jan 2022)

Rebecca Pow: ...we are discussing today. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for North East Bedfordshire (Richard Fuller) for bringing this starkly to our attention and for his dogged work on his private Member’s Bill. I hope he will be pleased with what I say, because we have been working closely together in the cause of the hare. The current legislation needs strengthening to protect these beautiful...

Approved Premises (Substance Testing) Bill (21 Jan 2022)

Aaron Bell: I congratulate my hon. Friend on getting the Bill to this stage—and further, we hope, later today. He is right to raise the problem with psychoactive substances and the risk of people turning violent or aggressive. Is there not a risk of a domino effect? If people are on the mend and clean in approved premises but then go into an unstable environment, that is more likely to put them back on...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 59 (20 Jan 2022)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: ...in the way that they are constructed, so that there is a view of outside spaces for those patients, rather than the total sensory deprivation that occurs to them in the very noisy and difficult environment of intensive care. Of course, music is used therapeutically during procedures and so on. In the hospice world, lots of activities obviously go on in the day centres. As my noble friend...

Lawfare and UK Court System (20 Jan 2022)

Liam Byrne: ...jurisdictions—an example is Mr Abramovich’s suit against HarperCollins in Australia—to maximise the cost for journalists, writers and their publishers. The impact is the creation of legal bills that are so big that they chill and kill the truth. Catherine Belton’s case cost well over £1.5 million, and it would have cost millions more if it had gone any further. Carole...

Subsidy Control Bill - Second Reading (19 Jan 2022)

Lord Callanan: I thank all noble Lords for their engagement ahead of today’s debate and their contributions this evening on this important Bill. It has been a good debate, despite the relatively late hour. I apologise to our two Green ladies, but I am not responsible for the timings, which were primarily driven by the time that the House dealt with previous business. However, we have had some informed...

Building Safety Bill: New Clause 19 - Special Measures (19 Jan 2022)

Christopher Pincher: ...I recognise that the issue that she has embedded in her amendment is intended to address the fact that the poor adversarial practices in the way that payments are charged and made within the built environment can lead to unsafe, low-quality building safety outcomes as well as poor value for money. I assure all hon. Members that we agree that the issue is important. There is already work...

Rebated Fuel Rules: Construction Industry (19 Jan 2022)

Carla Lockhart: ...and recycling companies, many of them family businesses, that have given the following stark analysis of the impact of this move. One family company predicts a £300,000 increase in its fuel bill. Another major construction company, which uses 2 million litres of fuel a year, will see its fuel bill increase by £l million. These examples are replicated at companies right across the United...

Small Modular Reactors and Energy Security (19 Jan 2022)

Jill Mortimer: ...fresh challenges for households already struggling to make ends meet. Gas prices, which are determined more by global events than by national government, have always been volatile, and household bills will soar again if we fail to rethink energy production in this country. New advances in nuclear technology could revolutionise the UK’s energy system, offering security, reliability,...

Public Bill Committee: Glue Traps (Offences) Bill: Clause 1 - Offences relating to glue traps in England (19 Jan 2022)

Ruth Jones: ...East for raising this important issue and for the constructive way she has worked with Opposition colleagues. I commend her, because she has secured what the authors of so many private Members’ Bills really want—the elusive support of Her Majesty’s Government. I hope she will share any tips on how she has achieved that. This has been a busy week for the Department for Environment,...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Housing: Construction (19 Jan 2022)

Christopher Pincher: ...access to Government support or funding such as Help to Buy, which has recently been used to exclude Rydon Homes where there are concerns about unacceptable business practices. The Building Safety Bill, currently before Parliament, includes provisions to strengthen the building safety regime including through the Building Safety Regulator, which will have oversight of the whole of the...

Scottish Parliament: Education and the 2022 Examination Diet (19 Jan 2022)

Martin Whitfield: ...and to support the amendment in my colleague Michael Marra’s name. Our most effective tool to truly improve the future, advance our country and help our communities is education—to have an environment that allows our young people to think critically, imagine, dream and even come up with the solutions to today’s problems and hopefully implement them tomorrow. The debate has been...
