Government Plan for Net Zero Emissions — [James Gray in the Chair] (8 Oct 2019)

Geraint Davies: ...achievement, when it is not. The latest prediction, given by Nature last year, was 1.5° change by 2030, not 2040. That is why we need to up our game to 2030 ourselves. The Government go ahead with fracking, which generates 5% of methane emissions. Methane is 83 times worse than CO2 for global warming, making it worse than coal. We should stop fracking now. The Government stopped onshore...

Review of Investigative and Scrutiny Committees (Liaison Committee Report) - Motion to Agree (3 Oct 2019)

Lord Lipsey: getting the monopoly of the big four accountants looked at and dealt with, in a way which I do not believe would have happened without that report. Other reports—I think of the one on fracking—put forward an absolutely unassailable position on the desirability of controlled fracking, which has of course been completely ignored by the ideologues who are opposed to any such thing....

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Onshore Unconventional Oil and Gas Policy (3 Oct 2019)

Paul Wheelhouse: ..., our cautious evidence-led approach to the future of unconventional oil and gas development, including coal-bed methane extraction and hydraulic fracturing—the latter being commonly known as fracking—has ensured that we have reached a policy decision that is fit for purpose. We have considered evidence that has been gathered from a range of independent experts, we have undertaken the...

Scottish Parliament: Time for Reflection (1 Oct 2019)

...arrests, involving six individuals. Those are some of the Quakers who have been arrested this year throughout the United Kingdom, mostly as part of extinction rebellion, or demonstrating against fracking.

Scottish Parliament: Climate Change (Emissions Reduction Targets) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Sep 2019)

Mr Mark Ruskell: ...on its policies for fossil fuel extraction including unconventional oil and gas. There has been a welcome change in tone from the First Minister, but while we still wait for a legally watertight fracking ban to be delivered, the Government’s policies on fossil fuels cannot exist in a silo away from the climate plans. The need for transition has to be addressed in the heart of those...

Prorogation (Disclosure of Communications) (9 Sep 2019)

Stephen Doughty: ...debates on the battle of Arnhem, in which my grandfather served and was taken prisoner of war; the pension age of our police; sanctions; refugees; climate change; EU citizens; the middle east; fracking; Northern Ireland; chemicals; sexual violence; and children.

Deferred Divisions: Early Parliamentary General Election (4 Sep 2019)

Caroline Lucas: ..., I am one of those who absolutely wants to do that, not least because this is a Government who are not only doing nowhere near enough to tackle the climate crisis but actively exacerbating it with fracking, fossil fuel subsidies and so on. This is also a Government who have the arrogance to claim that a no-deal Brexit will just be “bumps in the road”. How dare they? They might just be...

Summer Adjournment (25 Jul 2019)

Cat Smith: ...have hit 39 degrees, knowing that we have caused great damage to the planet we live on is unavoidable. I call on the Government to take decisive action to meet the climate emergency—ban fracking and invest in renewables by supporting the solar industry and reinvigorating onshore wind, so that we play our role. My hon. Friend the Member for York Central also talked about communities being...

Priorities for Government (25 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...? This is a phoney threat about a fake pot of money, made by the Prime Minister. We also face a climate emergency, so will the Prime Minister take the urgent actions necessary? Will he ban fracking? Will he back real ingenuity like the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon? Will he increase investment in carbon capture and storage? Will he back our solar industry and onshore wind—so devastated over...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...the greenest Government ever. They have failed on carbon emissions. They have failed on air pollution. They have failed on solar. The Prime Minister says that she wants action, but she supports fracking and has effectively banned onshore wind. The climate emergency simply cannot be left to the market. We all need to take responsibility to secure our common future. Labour led the call to...

Animal Welfare (Sentencing) Bill (Programme): Climate Change, the Environment and Global Development (10 Jul 2019)

Alex Norris: ..., the hon. Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse) talked about the inconvenient truth; I agree. I would be interested to hear the response from those on the Treasury Bench to her strongly made point on fracking. The shadow Secretary of State, my hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, Walton (Dan Carden), set out clearly the Labour party’s programme for tackling the climate emergency and...

G20 and Leadership of EU Institutions (3 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Government’s pledge to cut carbon emissions by 2050 is an empty one. They have no serious plan to invest and continue to dismantle our renewable energy sector while supporting fracking. The Prime Minister says that the international community must stand against Iran’s destabilising activity in the region. The Iran nuclear deal agreement was a multilateral agreement signed...

Department for Work and Pensions: Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (2 Jul 2019)

Lee Rowley: ...Moving on to the policy points, I have a couple of suggestions for my hon. Friends on the Treasury Bench. One is about an issue that deserves greater attention in housing policy. The other about is fracking, which is a favourite interest of mine and which many Members are already bored by. On housing, I know from debates such as these, from discussions in the Select Committee and from...

Climate Change Act 2008 (2050 Target Amendment) Order 2019 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (26 Jun 2019)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: .... What has happened to the Conservative Party in the meantime? We have a Government who resist onshore wind installations, which would supply cheap, clean energy, while supporting dirty, expensive fracking. Fracking is not the answer: it is a way to pump more fossil fuels into the atmosphere and, in the process, allow a rapacious private company, Cuadrilla, to stifle legitimate, peaceful...

EU Structural Funds: Least Developed Regions — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (26 Jun 2019)

Clive Betts: ...sufficient. Ministers should tell us what is holding the consultation up. We know that the Department has a big tray of things to do—the social care Green Paper, the social housing Green Paper, fracking, and the devolution framework which we have not yet seen—so Ministers are obviously busy thinking about doing things in the future, but why can we not get on and at least start to do...

Kew Gardens (Leases) (No. 3) Bill [Lords] (Programme): Climate Change (24 Jun 2019)

Wera Hobhouse: carbon homes. They ended the green deal, which was there to improve energy efficiency. They have set meaningless targets for the phasing out of petrol and diesel cars. They continue to support fracking, which involves a fossil fuel, and airport expansion, with no plan for research into jet fuel. Most importantly, transitioning to net zero risks placing an unfair burden on those who...
