Environment Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 8 (21 Jun 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, this has been an extremely interesting debate on a very important issue. I will concentrate on Amendments 8 and 56, which are both in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Scott of Needham Market, but also in the name of my noble friend Lady Quin, the noble Baroness, Lady Bennett of Manor Castle, and the noble Lord, Lord Teverson. As we have heard, these would require rather than...

Environment Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 5 (21 Jun 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, this has certainly been an interesting discussion around the proposal of the noble Lord, Lord Blencathra, to change the wording of the Bill to use the term “nature” instead of “biodiversity”. I can understand why he would want to propose this change, as it is an easier concept for many people to grasp and understand, as many noble Lords have said during our discussion....

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (16 Jun 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, this is an important Bill, and I thank all those who have spoken in the debate today. We have had a number of interesting and strong views expressed.

The formal legal recognition of animal sentience sends...

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, during the passage of the then Fisheries Bill, the Government argued against Labour amendments to redistribute part of the UK’s quota from foreign-owned trawlers to smaller domestic fishers, and to introduce a national landing obligation to ensure that the proceeds of fishing activity in British waters flow through our economy.

COP 26 - Question (25 May 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, the UK’s credibility as COP president rests on demonstrable climate action across government. The Climate and Environment Ministers of the G7, under UK leadership, have recognised the disproportionate impact of climate change and environmental degradation on the most vulnerable communities, and acknowledge the significant impacts of Covid-19 faced by developing countries. Does the...

Environmental Land Management Schemes - Question (24 May 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I, too, welcome the noble Lord to his position. Does the Minister agree with the assessment that granting tariff- free terms to Australia, and potentially New Zealand, undermining, in particular, small family farms, means that we have to make the same concession to the United States and Brazil? How are the Government ensuring that the design of ELMS considers external factors rather...

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I congratulate Chris Loder in the other place on bringing this Bill forward and thank the noble Lord, Lord Randall of Uxbridge, for sponsoring it in your Lordships’ House, although I regret that it has taken this long to bring this legislation forward considering that it has widespread cross-party support and is supported by the general public.

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: The animal welfare sector has been under huge strain with the increase in abandoned pets during lockdown. The Minister mentioned horses.
