Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the Minister for introducing these SIs this afternoon and for organising the very helpful briefing beforehand. I also welcome the noble Lord, Lord Mendoza, and congratulate him on his excellent maiden speech. I welcome the informed contributions of your Lordships and will concentrate specifically on the instruments themselves. As we have heard, neither instrument introduces...

Waste Prevention Programme - Question (10 Nov 2020)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: Water companies in England discharged raw sewage into rivers over 2,000 times last year. The chair of the Commons Environmental Audit Committee, Philip Dunne, has a Private Member’s Bill and an amendment to the Environment Bill seeking to place a duty on water companies to end that filthy practice. Can the Minister explain why the Government are not supporting his efforts and whether he...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 132 (2 Nov 2020)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I speak in support of Amendment 166, in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Boycott. It is an honour to follow her, along with the noble Baroness, Lady Jones, and my noble friend Lord Whitty. I also support Amendment 167, in the name of my noble friend Lord Stevenson of Balmacara, and its inclusion of the impact of climate change—particularly flooding. That is an issue close to...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 33 (28 Oct 2020)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I wish to speak in support of Amendments 35 and 58, in the name of my noble friend Lord Stevenson of Balmacara, particularly because I am concerned about the lack of standards protections. We have been assured that the Government have repeatedly stated their commitment to high standards and that this Bill does not change that commitment, but, as the noble Baroness, Lady Randerson,...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Wildlife Crime (31 Oct 2019)

Sue Hayman: I wish you all the best for the future, Mr Speaker, and thank you for chairing DEFRA questions with such patience and consideration over the last few years. We know that there are loopholes in the Hunting Act 2004 which are being exploited. A Labour Government would strengthen the hunting ban, so may I ask what the Conservative Government have been doing to stop foxhunters from breaking the law?

Environment Bill (28 Oct 2019)

Sue Hayman: I begin by thanking the Secretary of State and her civil servants for meeting me last week, and by acknowledging all the work put into the Bill by civil servants, non-governmental organisations and others who have brought it to this stage. We can all acknowledge that it contains improvements on the original draft. That said, Greener UK, the organisation representing environmental NGOs, has...

Environment Bill (28 Oct 2019)

Sue Hayman: It is vital that as we leave the EU all the necessary environmental protections are in place and equivalent to what we have now. The Chair of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee, the hon. Member for Tiverton and Honiton (Neil Parish), has also raised concerns. He said: “Despite the Government attempting to establish a robust framework for environmental governance, it appears...

Environment Bill (28 Oct 2019)

Sue Hayman: The hon. Lady makes an important point. I shall come to non-regression later.

Environment Bill (28 Oct 2019)

Sue Hayman: What the hon. Lady has said reflects some of my own concerns. I also have concerns about backing everything on to net gain, which has not proved as effective as would have been hoped in other countries, such as Australia.

Environment Bill (28 Oct 2019)

Sue Hayman: I am going to make some progress. I am aware of the shortage of time. We will discuss the details of the Bill in Committee, but I want to touch on a few aspects of it now: the principle of non-regression, targets, and the independence and powers of the Office for Environmental Protection. I also want to mention, briefly, some of our concerns about biodiversity net gain, water, nature recovery...

Environment Bill (28 Oct 2019)

Sue Hayman: I agree that we need to look at such issues extremely carefully when making planning decisions.

Environment Bill (28 Oct 2019)

Sue Hayman: It is a shame that funding for CCS was stopped some years ago. If that had not happened, we might be quite a bit further ahead. All the targets in the Bill, including the interim targets, must be legally binding, and must be set to be achieved as soon as possible. It is commendable that the Bill confirms the creation of statutory environmental improvement plans to ensure legally binding...

Environment Bill (28 Oct 2019)

Sue Hayman: As I am sure my hon. Friend knows, flooding is an issue that is close to my heart as well, and we certainly need to ask why it is not included more fundamentally in the Bill. Although the Bill sets out responsibilities for improving air quality, it does not commit the Government to reaching the World Health Organisation’s goal of 10 micrograms per cubic metre by 2030 at the latest. The...

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...
