Environment Bill (28 Oct 2019)

Sue Hayman: I really think that I need to make some progress. Let me now say something about the independence of the proposed Office for Environmental Protection. As my hon. Friend the Member for Wakefield (Mary Creagh) has said, the only reason the Government have made any movement on waste, landfill and air quality is the threat of EU fines, so it is disappointing that the OEP will have no powers to...

Environment Bill (28 Oct 2019)

Sue Hayman: I agree that our planning and development should be much better in terms of environmental impact, and I think it important for us to set targets for that to be achieved. The Bill does little to ensure that nature recovery strategies properly influence policy and decision making in areas such as planning—we may need to go further in some instances—environmental land management, and...

Environment Bill (28 Oct 2019)

Sue Hayman: My hon. Friend has made an excellent point.

Environment Bill (28 Oct 2019)

Sue Hayman: My hon. Friend gives an excellent example, and I thank him for that.

Environment Bill (28 Oct 2019)

Sue Hayman: That is right. It is important that we look at it right across the piece, from manufacturing down to what happens after we have finished using something. Tellingly, waste recovery company Biffa has said that it is disappointed in the lack of ambition in the Bill, and it has called for plastics to be recycled domestically in the UK to restore public confidence in recycling and to boost UK jobs...

Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Oct 2019)

Sue Hayman: We all know that we face a climate and environment emergency. We know that wildlife populations are collapsing, ecosystems are breaking down and temperatures are rising at an alarming rate. Since world war two, we have lost 97% of our meadows, 80% of our chalk grassland and more than half our ancient woodland. The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds’ “State of Nature” report has...

Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Oct 2019)

Sue Hayman: That is an extremely important point, and we could do that straightaway, but we need a proper, comprehensive transport Bill to tackle things more widely. My team will be going through the Environment Bill line by line, but there already seems to be evidence of some weaknesses. The proposals are weak on funding commitments, on enforcement, on genuine independence and on cross-departmental,...

Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Oct 2019)

Sue Hayman: I agree with my hon. Friend. The matter was mentioned during Labour’s party conference this year, because we are taking this very seriously. My concern is that the Conservative Government have a track record of missing environmental targets on air quality, major pollution incidents and biodiversity, and last year a leaked document showed that the Government had abandoned altogether an...

Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Oct 2019)

Sue Hayman: Whatever we do to try to protect the environment and solve the climate and ecological emergency, it is incredibly important that we do that on a global level. If we do not, we will never achieve the results that the planet needs. The Government had to be dragged through the courts time and again following their refusal to take adequate leadership on illegal levels of air pollution.

Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Oct 2019)

Sue Hayman: I agree. Air quality is referred to in the Environment Bill, and we will be pushing hard on those areas in Committee. I am particularly concerned about Natural England’s budget. For those who do not know, Natural England is the body responsible for protecting and enhancing our natural environment, and its budget has been cut in half. Staff tell me that they barely have the resources to cope...
