Energy Prices: Support for Business (22 Sep 2022)

Caroline Lucas: The Secretary of State’s announcements may have finally put a temporary brake on further terrifying price hikes, but they leave huge questions unanswered, including: what is the Government’s exit strategy? We need a proper solution to get us out of this crisis, by reducing our dependence on gas and upgrading buildings for the long term. Just yesterday, more than 100 top businesses wrote...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Air Pollution: Urban Areas (25 Jul 2022)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: The development of regulations to limit emissions from tyre and brake wear depends on the development of an internationally recognised test procedure for measuring them. This issue is being examined by the UN ECE Particle Measurement Programme (PMP), which includes DfT officials, other international governments, and the automotive industry. DfT is one of the founders of PMP and has played a...

Australia Free Trade Agreement - Motion to Take Note (11 Jul 2022)

Lord Oates: My Lords, I declare my interest as a member of the UK hydrogen commission. It is a pleasure to speak in this debate and, as a member of the International Agreements Committee, I pay particular tribute to our chair, the noble Baroness, Lady Hayter, and to our committee clerk Jennifer Martin-Kohlmorgen and her team for producing such an informative report. I regret that the noble Lord, Lord...

Action on Climate Change and Decarbonisation (5 Jul 2022)

Richard Fuller: I do not want to deflect my right hon. Friend too far from the debate, but let me just pin this down. The automobile added to growth because it got people from A to B quicker than a horse and cart. The move to net zero essentially means taking certain off-balance sheet, off-profit and loss statement costs and putting them on the balance sheet or on the P&L. It will therefore act as a brake on...

Public Bill Committee: Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill: Clause 1 - Precision Bred Organism (5 Jul 2022)

Daniel Zeichner: I thank the Minister for her constructive tone. I suspect that the arguments we will pursue over the next few days are already becoming clear. There is considerable agreement. No one disputes that it would be wonderful to be able to tackle bird flu or PRRS. Of course, if we can find a solution, it would be hugely beneficial not just in a financial sense but in terms of welfare as well. The...

Public Bill Committee: Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: Clause 1 (28 Jun 2022)

Alex Norris: It is a pleasure to begin our line-by-line consideration with you in the Chair, Mr Paisley. The first two parts of the Bill deal with levelling up. I think it is safe to say that levelling up is an area in which there is considerable public interest. It has been at the core of the Prime Minister’s agenda and was at the heart of the 2019 Conservative manifesto, but, many years on, there...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill (27 Jun 2022)

Simon Hoare: I will not, but I know the hon. Gentleman will understand why. The argument of necessity is clearly not made. The Prime Minister himself wants to see this done by negotiation, and I agree with him. There is the option to trigger article 16 if the Government think that that is necessary. If the situation is as bad as some Ministers would have this House believe, one has to ask why they have...

Ofwat: Strategic Priorities (9 Jun 2022)

Danny Kruger: I pay tribute to my right hon. Friend the Member for Ludlow (Philip Dunne) for securing this debate, and for all the work that he does to champion the cause of English rivers. I do not think that anyone in our country, except possibly the Minister, has done more to preserve, enhance and defend the health of our rivers—not even the Duke of Wellington deserves our thanks in the way that my...

Public Bill Committee: Public Order Bill: Examination of Witnesses (9 Jun 2022)

Nicola Bell: I think the level of offence is a matter for the police. For me, it is the same as John has mentioned. It is about the deterrent and, for me, it is really about safety. Walking on to a 70-mph road is not wise. If you look on Insulate Britain’s website, you will see evidence of the day they blocked the M25 at junction 25, where four protestors came out and sat on the road. They...

Standards in Public Life (7 Jun 2022)

Marion Fellows: If the House divides at the end of this debate, I shall be voting with the Opposition. Standards in public life are a foundation of our democracy. We must be able to have trust in those in public life, and we need Ministers, and especially a Prime Minister, to adhere to the ministerial code. Breaches of the Nolan principles and the ministerial code affect us all. It is fundamental that those...

Antisocial Behaviour and Off-road Bikes — [Yvonne Fovargue in the Chair] (26 May 2022)

Judith Cummins: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Fovargue. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Easington (Grahame Morris) on securing this important debate, as this problem stretches right across the country and the four nations of the UK. I recently introduced a ten-minute rule Bill to try to address the problem of off-road vehicles—specifically that of quad bikes—and...

Achieving Economic Growth (18 May 2022)

Sarah Olney: It is a pleasure to speak in this Queen’s Speech debate, just as it was a pleasure to see Her Majesty yesterday at the opening of the Elizabeth line, our new railway line through London. As the right hon. Member for Ashford (Damian Green) has mentioned, it has overrun on both time and budget, but the small upside is that Her Majesty got to open the line that bears her name during her...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Unsolicited Brake Applications (2): Unsolicited Brake Applications (2) (11 Apr 2022)

Sadiq Khan: There are no systemic faults affecting the western boundary automatic signalling transitions. Unsuccessful transitions have been attributed to individual train and signalling faults, rectified at the time. Transport for London (TfL) believes there are three factors contributing to the unsolicited brake applications during automatic transition at the eastern boundary. TfL is taking the...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Unsolicited Brake Applications (3): Unsolicited Brake Applications (3) (11 Apr 2022)

Nicholas Rogers: What does TfL believe is the solution to these unsolicited brake applications?

Questions to the Mayor of London — Unsolicited Brake Applications (1): Unsolicited Brake Applications (1) (11 Apr 2022)

Sadiq Khan: ...has been below 0.5 per cent since Trial Operations started in November 2021. At the eastern boundary, the number of trains not successfully transitioning and experiencing an unsolicited brake application has been 2.9 per cent since the automatic transition was commissioned at the beginning of January 2022. In the last two weeks (to 14 March), this rate has increased to 5.5 per cent. Please...

Appointment of Lord Lebedev (29 Mar 2022)

Alison Thewliss: On Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending a 2050 Climate Group young leaders event, where young leaders were being given some ideas about how they might want to influence politics. It was a great event and the young people at it truly gave me faith for our future, as they had some excellent questions. Aimee Dobie, from the parliamentary outreach service, does outreach right across Scotland...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Electric Vehicles (29 Mar 2022)

Jo Churchill: 2019. Ending the sale of new conventional petrol and diesel cars and vans will also help improve air quality through the phased elimination of tailpipe emissions. A Government research project to assess the impact of the shift to electric vehicles on non-exhaust emissions from tyre and brake wear is underway and will report in 2023.

Lower Thames Crossing (24 Mar 2022)

Stephen Metcalfe: I think that is hard to forget, and it was catastrophic. Of course, it is damaging to local business, because once people think that such catastrophic congestion happens in and around Lakeside in the run-up to Christmas, they avoid it and want to go somewhere else. Whatever we do, it has to address those problems. I am really concerned that it will not, and people will ask us why it has not,...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Pedal Confusion: Unintended Acceleration Incidents, June 2016 to present (1): Pedal Confusion: Unintended Acceleration Incidents, June 2016 to present (1) (23 Mar 2022)

Sadiq Khan: Transport for London (TfL) has provided the most up-to-date analysis of suspected Pedal Application Error (commonly referred to as pedal confusion) incidents in the attached spreadsheet. This covers the period April 2010 to the present. This does not include those incidents where the investigation has yet to be concluded. The analysis has been rerun to specifically identify Pedal Application...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Pedal Confusion: 17 Solutions proposed in 2011 Research: Pedal Confusion: 17 Solutions proposed in 2011 Research (23 Mar 2022)

Sadiq Khan: The 2011 Research ‘Identifying Solutions to Pedal Confusion in Buses’ assessed 17 possible solutions for further investigation to help address pedal confusion (see link - . The assessment found that 9 of the 17 solutions were ‘not suitable for further investigation’ and therefore not progressed. These are highlighted in red...
