European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Regulations to deal with deficiencies arising from withdrawal - Independent Report (12 Dec 2017)

Mary Creagh: I thank the Minister for that clarification. What could possibly be watered down? The Environmental Audit Committee asked the Transport Secretary for a guarantee that air quality standards would not be watered down after Brexit, but he refused to give us that guarantee, saying that he found it “hard to believe that any Minister is going to stand before this House and argue for a reduction...

Trade and Customs Policy - Motion to Take Note (5 Dec 2017)

Viscount Waverley: ...-channel port countries of Belgium, France and the Netherlands will need to alter their systems to accommodate UK imports and exports. Beyond budgetary issues, this will require co-operation and direction from the Commission. Preventing disruption will require both sides to be prepared for changes. I spent a large part of yesterday evening scouring public-source EU documents. It is a given...

Backbench Business: Dr Elsie Inglis and Women’s Contribution to World War One — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Nov 2017)

Ian Murray: ...she defied demands from the British Government to return home. Despite finding out that she had cancer—I stress that she had cancer as well—she set up two more field hospitals. In 1915, she was captured and repatriated, but still did not rest until Serbian soldiers were guaranteed safe passage out of Serbia. Once this safe passage had been granted and the soldiers arrived in Newcastle,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: EU Protocol on animal sentience (15 Nov 2017)

Kerry McCarthy: .... I hope that when we debate it we hear more from the Government about exactly how this agency will work, because at the moment it is only a vague proposition. It looks to be heading in the right direction, but I have a lot of questions about how it will work. I shall speak to amendments 93, 94 and 95, and new clause 28, which stand in my name. The new clause covers similar ground to new...

Air and Water Pollution: Impact - Motion to Take Note (26 Oct 2017)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, I intend to address air pollution and health. In the light of the recent reports of the Royal College of Physicians and the World Health Organization, I am more than happy to support this Motion in the name of my noble friend Lady Miller. For far too long, air pollution has remained swept under the rug, even as the UK remains among the worst in western Europe in its protection of...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2017-18 (6 Sep 2017)

Graeme Dey: ...are designed to tackle. There is a bigger picture here. Let us look at the detail of the measures that have attracted such a positive response from those possessing an objective perspective. The direct early stage support for the acorn project at St Fergus is both welcome and necessary given the reliance placed on carbon capture and storage in the draft climate plan. Yes, that will cost a...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2017-18 (5 Sep 2017)

Nicola Sturgeon: ..., but in each of them we must find opportunity. This programme for government is our plan to seize those opportunities and to build the kind of Scotland that we all seek—an inclusive, fair, prosperous, innovative country that is ready and willing to embrace the future. It is a programme to invest in our future and shape Scotland’s destiny. Ensuring that we have a highly educated and...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Diesel Engines: Regulation (25 Jul 2017)

Richard Harrington: ..., Defra consulted on proposals to introduce Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) emissions controls on generators alongside its consultation on proposals for the implementation of the Medium Combustion Plant Directive (MCPD), aimed at improving air quality. The definition of generators used in the proposal captures those with a rated input of between 1MW thermal and 50MW thermal, although site...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill (3 Jul 2017)

Luke Pollard: ...the House understands the clear distinction between the protection afforded by ATOL for package sales and those that can be afforded by buying decent holiday insurance, including SAFI—scheduled airline failure insurance. As the hon. Member for Milton Keynes South (Iain Stewart) remarked, time is running out. We are six months away from legislation needing to be in place and 12 months...

Air Quality: London - Motion to Take Note (3 Jul 2017)

Lord Whitty: ...informed tour of the issues involved. I need to declare an interest as the current honorary president of Environmental Protection UK, which is the successor body to the National Society for Clean Air, one of the campaigning bodies that produced the Clean Air Act 1956, referred to by the noble Lord. My noble friend Lord Hunt, who will speak later in the debate, is also a former president of...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (Continued) (26 Jun 2017)

Lord Inglewood: ...like me, it looks like the land of milk and honey, but underneath that thick veneer of prosperity there is rural poverty and deprivation, and it seems to be most closely associated with those who directly work on or close to the land—those who, on the continent, are called peasants. I have been called a peasant on the continent, and I am proud of it. That is a correlation that we need...

Scottish Parliament: Independence Referendum (28 Mar 2017)

Kate Forbes: If the member had heard me correctly, she would know that I specifically said “politicians ... to our shame”. I did not point the finger in any direction. I repeat that I defend everybody’s right to be heard—in conversation, in debate and in a referendum. My vision for Scotland is captured in one of Scotland’s languages. If the chamber will indulge me, I will quote a verse from a...

Brexit: Environment and Climate Change - Motion to Take Note (23 Mar 2017)

the Earl of Caithness: ...—there is nothing to stop the pollution coming over the EU national boundary. We are members of certain world organisations and we have a very important role to play in the future of that. On air quality, we have been far too slow. It is a subject that I suggested the committee should write a report on some six years ago when I was a member. However, I was overruled, and we did another...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Offence of shining or directing a laser at a vehicle (21 Mar 2017)

John Hayes: .... By the way, the dividing line here can be shortened as a result of the length of my own introductory remarks. The dividing line is where there is a real potential for harm. We do not want to capture instances in which harm is not likely to arise, whether as a result of malevolence or recklessness. We have not heard evidence that police find it difficult to show that someone has been...

Public Bill Committee: Bus Services Bill [Lords]: Advanced quality partnership schemes (14 Mar 2017)

Andrew Jones: To say that the Government are just thinking about it does not capture the spirit of what I said earlier about our low emission bus scheme and the further funding that was allocated in the autumn statement. I agree that air quality is a significant and pressing issue, and I have no doubt that progress with buses is at the heart of improving the air quality in our towns and cities. However,...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (1st Day) (20 Feb 2017)

Lord Hennessy of Nympsfield: ...that the state is, “the coldest of all cold monsters”. How chilling too can be the state’s artefacts—even its paper ones. For a remainer such as me, these two little light green pages that capture the Bill before us represent the coldest of cold print. Yet I accept the result of the referendum, and I believe that we need now to crack on with the withdrawal negotiation and that the...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (7th Day) (30 Jan 2017)

Baroness Brown of Cambridge: ...to, and listen to, the high-quality debate at council meetings, without at the same time having to manage the meeting; it ensures that views which the chief executive may not agree with are well aired and discussed; that all relevant issues are included on the agenda; and that all council members are enabled to play their full part. Sir Adrian was looking at the problems of the finance...

Scottish Parliament: Draft Climate Change Plan (19 Jan 2017)

Roseanna Cunningham: ...the climate justice fund, which supports some of Africa’s poorest climate-vulnerable communities, has emphasised the urgent practical need for global solutions. We saw a major step in the right direction in Paris in December 2015. The United Nations Paris agreement, which was the first global, legally binding agreement to limit greenhouse gas emissions, came into force on 4 November...

Digital Economy Bill: Code of practice: accessibility to on-demand audiovisual services for people with disabilities affecting hearing and/or sight (28 Nov 2016)

Kevin Brennan: ...for that reason. It is a point of principle for us. We cannot accept a policy that takes responsibility for even a small part of our social security system and gives it to an organisation with no direct accountability to the electorate. If the new clause fails, Labour will do everything in its power to make it clear to those millions of over-75s exactly what is going on. It is not the BBC...

Awards for Valour (Protection) Bill (25 Nov 2016)

Philip Davies: ...is nothing to prevent somebody who served in the armed forces, and did gain some medals, from being prosecuted for wearing the wrong medals. Surely the House does not want that to happen. The Royal Air Force Families Federation touched on the issue in its submissions to the Defence Committee inquiry. It was asked: “What is the attitude of current and former serving members of the Armed...
