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)

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...

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...

Scottish Parliament: World Environment Day 2019 (13 Jun 2019)

Angus MacDonald: ...Wales. Two of those places are in my Falkirk East constituency. Coal-bed methane extraction in my patch was a further threat to this little spider, so the Scottish Government’s effective ban on fracking has had another otherwise unknown but positive unintended consequence. The little spider lives in lowland raised bogs—habitat that is crucial in tackling climate change. Unfortunately,...

UK Net Zero Emissions Target - Statement (12 Jun 2019)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: set out in the register, particularly my interest as president of NEA. I am not a scientist; could my noble friend explain how we square the circle between reducing carbon emissions and fracking for shale gas? Can he also assure us that there will be joined-up government in the Bills coming before this House, particularly the Agriculture Bill and the environment Bill? Can he assure us...

Net Zero Emissions Target (12 Jun 2019)

Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Jun 2019)

Caroline Lucas: ...things that she could do in the six weeks she has left. Will she cancel the expansion of Heathrow airport? Will she divert the money for more road building into public transport? And will she scrap fracking once and for all? That is the way that she would show us she is serious: will she do it?

Sustainable Development Goals (11 Jun 2019)

Chris Law: Scotland is nationalised. Furthermore, Scotland’s ban on diesel cars will begin in 2032—eight years ahead of the UK Government’s—and unlike the UK Government, the SNP does not support fracking, or a return to nuclear energy. In addition to that progress at home, the Scottish Government have distributed £21 million through the world-leading climate justice fund, which is now...

Nick Hurd: ...has been persistent in making the case for more funding for Lancashire police, so he will welcome the additional £18.4 million of cash in 2019-20, on top of the exceptional grant for the costs of fracking.
