Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 157 (8 Nov 2021)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...normal people, who got behind the wheel of a car when they had been drinking. As the noble Baroness just said, this is not accidental. It is deliberate: these people have a drink and then get into a car. But things have altered in those 60 years. I mentioned seatbelts earlier, and there has obviously been the breathalyser. When I first started campaigning on this, the Government’s...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 152 (8 Nov 2021)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, we come to Part 5. I shall also speak to Amendments 167, 168 and 169. I am grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Jones of Moulsecoomb, my noble friend Lady Hayter of Kentish Town and the noble Lord, Lord Russell of Liverpool, for their support for some of these amendments. This group contains four of several amendments put forward by a coalition of groups, including British Cycling,...

Income Tax (Charge) (27 Oct 2021)

Ian Blackford: Who does not have a mask on, despite the fact that Members of this House are falling ill with covid. I say to the Prime Minister and I say to the Secretary of State for Scotland that the simple fact of the matter is that all of us have to recognise democracy, and the Conservatives have to recognise that an election to the Scottish Parliament took place this year. There is a majority for...

Motorcycling: Government Support (26 Oct 2021)

Bill Wiggin: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. First of all, I am sorry to hear about his brother. Falling off a motorcycle is extremely frightening—I have done that. Unfortunately, I have also had my motorcycle stolen, so I absolutely agree about the need for proper security. Of course, everybody benefits if things are not stolen, because our insurance stays lower. So yes, I...

Environment Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion A (26 Oct 2021)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: With the leave of the House, I will also speak to Motions B, B1, C, C1, D and D1. This historic legislation is now not only within sight; it is within reach. I thank Members for their conversations with me and my officials and for the debates that have taken place in this House. I begin with Amendment 1, on biodiversity and the climate emergency, tabled by the noble Lord, Lord Teverson, and I...

Covid-19: Government Response (21 Oct 2021)

Martyn Day: With infection levels worryingly at previous lockdown levels, with the Government being accused of having taken their foot off the brake by the British Medical Association, and with NHS leaders calling for the reintroduction of restrictions, the Secretary of State’s stance of not implementing plan B at this point does not look credible. It looks like a repeat of the previous mistakes of...

Scottish Parliament: Decarbonising Scotland’s Transport (23 Sep 2021)

Maurice Golden: The upcoming rapid expansion of electric vehicles, although welcome, has the potential to increase levels of non-exhaust emissions, owing to the increased vehicle weight exacerbating tyre and brake wear. Will research be carried out on how electric vehicle uptake might impact on non-exhaust emissions?

Working People’s Finances: Government Policy (21 Sep 2021)

Stephen Kinnock: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, Wavertree (Paula Barker), who made such a powerful and passionate case, so rightly pointing out the false economy that inequality represents. Thousands of families in my constituency, like families across the UK, have taken a real buffeting over the past 18 months, and this month could bring the perfect storm for them as the...

Net-zero Carbon Emissions: Behaviour Change - Motion to Take Note (16 Sep 2021)

Baroness Sheehan: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Jones of Moulsecoomb, and I totally agree with her that we must have a sense of urgency in taking action now. I add my thanks to the noble Baroness, Lady Blackstone, for introducing this debate and bringing it to us. It is so important, and I was very impressed with the way she introduced it. It is self-evident that we will all...

Environment Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 109 (15 Sep 2021)

the Earl of Devon: ...than Part 7 and the introduction of conservation covenants. This is a seismic shift, meaning that, for the first time since the Normans introduced common law, owners of land will be able to bind successors in perpetuity to positive obligations to manage land in a particular way. More radical still, and in a departure from the recommendations of the Law Commission, the counterparties to...

Environment Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 51 (13 Sep 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: ...causes of air pollution. The noble Baroness, Lady Sheehan, ably introduced her Amendment 51, on the impact of speed on air quality, as she did in Committee, and spoke passionately about why we need to reduce speed limits to reduce PM2.5. We have heard about research on the impact of road traffic, and the fact that it is responsible for up to 80% of particulate pollution in the UK, but it...

Calorie Labelling (Out of Home Sector) (England) Regulations 2021 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (22 Jul 2021)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: My Lords, my noble friend Lady Jenkin has already mentioned that for many years in this House we have been calling for action to deal with the obesity epidemic, mainly with the slogan, “The obesity epidemic is killing millions, costing billions and the cure is to put fewer calories into their mouths”. This will save a great deal of money and reduce the strain on the NHS, as has already...

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 5 (6 Jul 2021)

Baroness Morris of Yardley: My Lords, I very much support the comments just made by the noble Lords, Lord Storey and Lord Patel, and the thrust of the argument. It is right that we get as much knowledge and experience and skills before making any of these decisions. I suggest to the Minister that this is going to be a recurring theme throughout our consideration of the Bill: what is the nature of the partnership which...

Environment Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 150A (5 Jul 2021)

Baroness Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist: ...and informed intelligence on this subject. I start with Amendment 150A, tabled by the noble Baroness, Lady Sheehan. I am sure the noble Baroness knows that local authorities already have the power to set 20 mph speed limits where local needs and conditions suggest that it is required—for example, in a built-up area or near a school. The Government agree with her that 20 mph speed limits...

Covid-19: Impact on Attendance in Education Settings (30 Jun 2021)

Gavin Williamson: I very much have that at the forefront of my mind. If my right hon. Friend has time, it would be very interesting to sit down with him, and with some of my team and some from the Department of Health and Social Care, to discuss this in greater detail. The key thing is making sure that people are not being hospitalised and people are not in danger of dying. The vaccine has had enormous success...

Environment Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 82 (28 Jun 2021)

the Earl of Caithness: My Lords, when the office of environmental protection was mooted, I hoped it would be on the same basis as the Climate Change Committee, and be totally independent of government. When that was not the case, I hoped that the structure of the Bill would be that advocated by the noble Lord, Lord Teverson, and that that part of the Bill should be within the remit of the Climate Change Committee,...

Environment Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 20 (23 Jun 2021)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, I have added my name to two amendments in this group, Amendments 20 and 49. These amendments deal with the same fundamental problem—the impact of air pollution on health. I declare my interests as I chaired the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee inquiry into allergies. I am a Bevan commissioner in Wales. Sadly, I also have family who are exposed to very high levels of...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: New Clause 9 - Rental of high performance vehicles (22 Jun 2021)

“(1) It is an offence to offer for rental a motor car of more than 300 brake horsepower, unless the motor car is fitted with a black box. (2) For the purposes of this section, a black box is a telematic device which records information about the way a motor car is driven. (3) The Secretary of State must by regulations determine the information which a black box must record for the purposes...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (8 Jun 2021)

Caroline Ansell: I am delighted to report back to my right hon. Friend that the University of Brighton, which has a campus in Eastbourne, has experienced a significant rise in the number of applications to study for careers in health professions. A shortage of training placements is the only real brake on the numbers of would-be students. I understand from having talked to the university that in the UK...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Plastics: Pollution (7 Jun 2021)

Rachel Maclean: The Department for Transport has not conducted an assessment of the potential effect of particulate and plastic pollution from brake, tyre and road wear (collectively referred to as ‘non-exhaust emissions’) on human health. However, in 2020 the Committee on the Medical Effects of Air Pollutants (COMEAP) reviewed and published a statement on the existing evidence on the subject. In...
