Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: New Clause 1 - “Assimilated law” (18 Jan 2023)

Caroline Lucas: Is it not also the case that, as far as we are aware, the perception of environmental legislation held by the right hon. Member for North East Somerset tends to be very much a narrow thing about habitats, water and so forth? It does not include things like product standards, chemical regulation or efficiency standards, for example, all of which might not necessarily be dealt with by DEFRA but...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Second Reading (17 Jan 2023)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: My Lords, I declare my position as a vice-president of the LGA and the NALC. My noble friend Lady Jones of Moulsecoomb focused on housing and planning-related issues in the Bill. I will look at its overall purpose.

Fossil Fuels and Cost of Living Increases — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (11 Jan 2023)

Caroline Lucas: I thank hon. Members for their contributions to the debate. I also thank the Minister, although for most of his response he misjudged the tone of the room. We were genuinely trying to find areas where we can move issues forward, particularly as they affect our constituents. On energy efficiency, we know it is win, win, win. It gets people’s fuel bills down, addresses the climate emergency,...

Elected Representatives (Codes Of Conduct) (10 Jan 2023)

Debbie Abrahams: ...we know, too often over the last few years we have seen a small minority of Members pay scant regard to these duties and principles, even wilfully ignoring them. The scandals of the last few years are not the issue of just one Administration. The Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards, who is responsible for regulating the Members’ code, was initially set up in 1995 to investigate the...

Non-domestic Energy Support (9 Jan 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ..., including many in my constituency, will have listened to this announcement with deepening anxiety.

Obviously, that research was conducted before we knew the shape of this proposal,...

NHS Winter Pressures (9 Jan 2023)

Caroline Lucas: The NHS and social care are in unprecedented crisis, even if that is a word that the Secretary of State and the Prime Minister refuse to use. We know that resilience was stripped out of our NHS years before the covid pandemic, and I come back to the level of vacancies: there are 133,000 in our NHS and 165,000 in social care. Will the Minister admit that, as well as growing the workforce, we...

Treasury: Topical Questions (20 Dec 2022)

Caroline Lucas: ...grotesque profits from high global prices, it is beyond belief that the Chancellor does not scrap the so-called investment allowance announced in the autumn statement, which means that companies are still able to claim £91.40 in tax relief for every £100 invested in oil and gas infrastructure. Will he now come clean about the cost to the taxpayer of this perverse and utterly unjustified...

Migration and Economic Development (19 Dec 2022)

Caroline Lucas: ...does not. Will the Home Secretary also stop saying that this policy has the support of the British people? According to a recent YouGov poll, just 10% of them support it. The British people are better than this vile British Government.

Home Department: Asylum System (19 Dec 2022)

Caroline Lucas: The Home Office is placing vulnerable, unaccompanied asylum-seeking children in hotels in local authority areas. It is directly commissioning those hotels and other services, because it knows that local authorities do not have the funding or capacity required.

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: New Clause 48 - Condition relating to development progress reports (13 Dec 2022)

Caroline Lucas: ...England cannot access nature within a 15-minute walk of their home. That is a particular issue for disadvantaged communities, with some having little or no green space at all.

During lockdown, when inequalities were laid bare, Natural England...

Free School Meals (Primary Schools) (13 Dec 2022)

Zarah Sultana: ...eligibility for free school meals to all children in state primary schools; and for connected purposes. When I secured an opportunity to bring this Bill to Parliament, I put out a call asking parents, teachers and anyone else to get in touch with me to explain the difference that free school meals for all would make. Although I cannot do justice to the strength of feeling conveyed to me in...

Illegal Immigration (13 Dec 2022)

Caroline Lucas: ...of a fair and efficient system. The best way to stop desperate people from dying in small boats and to stop the criminal gangs is for the Government to promote more safe and legal routes. Why are they so incapable of doing that effectively? Why can he find 500 new staff for his Albanian scheme but only eight people to process the 11,000 asylum applications from Afghanistan? That means...
