Hydrogen Energy - Question (14 Mai 2024)

Baroness Sheehan: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the implications of their decision to cancel the pilot plan for a ‘hydrogen town’.

Hydrogen Energy - Question (14 Mai 2024)

Baroness Sheehan: I start by congratulating the Minister on injecting a modicum of common sense into the myth that hydrogen could ever be a meaningful player in home heating. My Question was prompted by a conversation with the CEO of a heat battery company, who is having to postpone a decision to build a new factory until the Government can give a clear signal that the 2026 deadline for the hydrogen strategy...

Carbon Budget Delivery Plan: High Court Ruling - Question ( 8 Mai 2024)

Baroness Sheehan: My Lords, how will the High Court’s ruling that the carbon budget delivery plan is fatally flawed impact the UK’s next nationally determined contributions, due early next year?

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation - Commons Urgent Question (17 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Sheehan: My Lords, can the Minister say why there are no independent observers or journalists in Gaza, such as from the BBC, Sky News, CBS and CNN? I could go on—the list is very long. Do we not need those independent observers on the ground so that we can stop these constant contradictions about why aid convoys are being attacked and why aid is not reaching people? This is very distressing. At the...

Offshore Petroleum Licensing Bill - Second Reading (26 Maw 2024)

Baroness Sheehan: The Minister has not addressed my third question, about stranded assets. Should these fields become so in the fullness of time, will he put in place safeguards to make sure that the British taxpayer is not liable for the costs?

Offshore Petroleum Licensing Bill - Second Reading (26 Maw 2024)

Baroness Sheehan: Yes, we get billions in taxes; that is because trillions are made in profits. What I am really concerned about is that if the businesses fold, the profits have been pocketed but the taxpayer will be left with the costs. Does the Minister accept that?

Offshore Petroleum Licensing Bill - Second Reading (26 Maw 2024)

Baroness Sheehan: My Lords, I thank the House for allowing me to speak in the gap. Before I move on to what I had planned to say, I will ask the Minister three questions. First, will the successful licensees be eligible for grants? If so, how much will they be? Secondly, who will be responsible for decommissioning costs throughout the lifetime of the new fields? Thirdly, if in the fullness of time any of the...

Spring Budget 2024 - Motion to Take Note (18 Maw 2024)

Baroness Sheehan: My Lords, my contribution to this debate will be from the perspective of my role as chair of the Environment and Climate Change Committee and will ask whether the measures in the Spring Budget demonstrate that this Government accept the need for action today if we are to avert far greater costs tomorrow, both to mitigate against climate change and to put in place measures to reduce its...

Forest Risk Commodity Regulations - Question (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Sheehan: My Lords—

Forest Risk Commodity Regulations - Question (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Sheehan: My Lords, in my capacity as chair of the Environment and Climate Change Committee, I wrote to the Secretary of State for Defra, Steve Barclay, on this issue on 14 February. As yet, I have not had a reply and nor has the chair of the Environmental Audit Committee in the other place, who wrote to him earlier than I did. Will the Minister use his good offices to ask when a reply might be...

Climate Risk Models - Question (25 Ion 2024)

Baroness Sheehan: My Lords, I think I heard the Minister say that the next round of the climate biennial exploratory scenarios needs to accommodate disruptive climate events in the 2020s and take account of the revised scientific consensus about the speed—that is the key word—with which adverse climatic events are being observed and new emerging evidence since the 2021 report. Will the Government ask the...

Global Heating - Question for Short Debate (18 Ion 2024)

Baroness Sheehan: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of recent reports that global heating is likely to pass the 1.5-degree Celsius threshold this year, and how they intend to cooperate with international partners to mitigate the impacts of climate change.

Global Heating - Question for Short Debate (18 Ion 2024)

Baroness Sheehan: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who will be contributing to this debate; their participation is much appreciated. I also draw attention to my role as a director of Peers for the Planet and to the excellent briefing produced by it for this debate, entitled Why UK Action Matters. My own contribution will focus primarily on the 1.5 degrees Celsius target, its significance, and why breaching it...

Climate Change: Impact on Developing Nations - Motion to Take Note (11 Ion 2024)

Baroness Sheehan: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Earl; I always find myself in agreement with him. I pay tribute to the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Winchester for his commendable maiden speech. I add my thanks to my noble friend Lady Northover for securing this important and timely debate. Time is short so I am grateful to her for laying out the issues so comprehensively. I associate...

Limiting Global Temperature Increase - Question (13 Rha 2023)

Baroness Sheehan: My Lords, the agreed wording of COP 28 in the small hours of this morning does not go far enough, given that scientific consensus is strongly in favour of a phase-out of fossil fuels. Nevertheless, this is what we have signed up to. Can the Minister say whether the Government will publish a plan to say how they will meet our commitment to “Transitioning away from fossil fuels in energy...

Hydrogen Heating - Question (11 Rha 2023)

Baroness Sheehan: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the finding of the National Infrastructure Commission that there is no public policy case for hydrogen heating, set out in the Second National Infrastructure Assessment published in October.

Hydrogen Heating - Question (11 Rha 2023)

Baroness Sheehan: I thank the Minister for his reply. My first question is about the residents of Redcar. Their council leader has written to the Secretary of State to say that they do not want a hydrogen heating trial. Am I correct in saying that they will be allowed to follow the residents of Whitby and veto the proposal? After all, the Minister himself has said as much from the Dispatch Box. Secondly, what...
