King’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (18 Gor 2024)

Baroness Boycott: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to be speaking in this first day of debate of this new Government. Like all noble Lords, I welcome the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman, and the noble Lord, Lord Hunt. to their new jobs. We are in good hands. There was so much to welcome in the gracious Speech, especially hearing that the Government recognise the climate crisis that we face and are taking...

Renters (Reform) Bill - Second Reading (15 Mai 2024)

Baroness Boycott: My Lords, I declare my interests, in particular my interest with Peers for the Planet, which probably provides a clue as to what I will talk about in, and contribute to, this debate—energy efficiency in the private rental sector. I have much enjoyed other noble Lords’ contributions; it has been incredibly interesting. I totally agree with the noble Baroness, Lady Jones: I have had more...

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

Baroness Boycott: My Lords, the Government, and many Governments around the world, are pinning an enormous amount of their strategies on carbon capture and storage. There are currently just 41 CCS plants operating globally and they account for 0.1% of annual global emissions. When Exxon tried to use that as an argument last week in the United States, the technology was described as going “at a snail’s...

NHS: Long-term Sustainability - Motion to Take Note (18 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Boycott: My Lords, it is a pleasure to take part in this debate and, like everyone else, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Patel, for introducing it so brilliantly. I also congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Ramsey, on a really good maiden speech. This is an interesting week, in that we have decided to ban kids smoking. What we have not banned, and are in fact encouraging, is kids eating an appalling...

Surplus Carbon Emissions - Question (27 Maw 2024)

Baroness Boycott: My Lords, future carbon budgets that the Government are proposing depend quite a lot on carbon capture and storage. At the moment, this is not a working technology; it is not actually running anywhere in the world, although many Governments are putting it in their future plans as something that will deliver. Can the Minister give the House an update on where the technology stands, and when he...

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

Baroness Boycott: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, but I feel reluctant to stand up because the Bill seems to have little genuine purpose. It is distracting us from what we need to concentrate on, which is tackling the twin threats of climate change and biodiversity loss. The context of the Bill and our international reputation are really important, as several noble Lords have said. This is...

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

Baroness Boycott: I would contradict that too, because we do not have the time to figure out the difference between them. At the end of the day, they are the same thing. Many people who live in California, which was just mentioned, have lost their homes. If you live in Bangladesh, you have lost your homes; if you are a farmer in this country, you have been unable to plant your crops this year because of the...

Child Poverty - Question (26 Maw 2024)

Baroness Boycott: My Lords, I draw the House’s attention to the 200,000 children who represent 14% of the children who are eligible for free school meals, even on the very small amount of money their parents are allowed to use, who are not registered. They are not registered because there is no automatic registration, which can happen extremely easily once people are handed out universal credit. I have asked...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Land Drainage (22 Maw 2024)

Baroness Boycott: To ask His Majesty's Government what powers the Environment Agency holds to require companies to release 15-minute flow data when requested, and under which regulations they have this power.

Biomass: Power Generation - Question (13 Maw 2024)

Baroness Boycott: To ask His Majesty’s Government what evidence they have that power generation from biomass is (1) good value for the taxpayer, (2) not leading to forest degradation in other countries, and (3) compatible with reaching net zero emissions by 2050.

Biomass: Power Generation - Question (13 Maw 2024)

Baroness Boycott: I thank the noble Lord very much for his Answer, but it seems incorrect that we should fund any sort of forest degradation, either in this country or in others, such as Canada or the USA. We know that some countries are cutting down old-growth forests to feed companies here in England, such as Drax. A tree planted today, even if you replace it, is not going to sequester carbon until,...

Forest Risk Commodity Regulations - Question (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Boycott: My Lords, in a recent investigation by Global Witness, it was found that both HSBC and Barclays are financing companies that are purchasing product made on illegally deforested land, particularly in the Cerrado. This is a complex ecosystem that is not covered as tropical rainforest. It has fallen between two stools, but it is producing an enormous amount of meat. Schedule 17 is meant to cover...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Sewage: Waste Disposal (11 Maw 2024)

Baroness Boycott: To ask His Majesty's Government what plans they have to direct the Environment Agency to revise all permits issued in respect of water company sewage discharges under the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016, so that those permits fully reflect the combined obligations of the Urban Waste Water Treatment (England and Wales) Regulations 1994 and the judgment in the case...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Rivers: Sewage (11 Maw 2024)

Baroness Boycott: To ask His Majesty's Government when the results of the Storm Overflow Assessment Framework will be published for storm overflows potentially discharging untreated sewage into English rivers; and on what occasions there have been (1) overflows where untreated sewage can be lawfully discharged other than as a result of exceptional rainfall, and (2) overflows where untreated sewage cannot be...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Free School Meals: Eligibility (29 Chw 2024)

Baroness Boycott: To ask His Majesty's Government what is their policy on the proactive use of data by local authorities to identify and register all children eligible for free school meals.

Written Answers — Department for Education: Free School Meals: Eligibility (29 Chw 2024)

Baroness Boycott: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment, if any, they have made of the potential merits of permitting the proactive use of data by local authorities to identify and register all children eligible for free school meals.

Written Answers — Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Oil and Natural Gas: Employment (27 Chw 2024)

Baroness Boycott: To ask His Majesty's Government what evidence base they have used for their claim that the oil and gas industry supports 200,000 jobs, which subsectors are represented by that figure, and how many of those are (1) wholly, and (2) majority, reliant on the oil and gas industry.

Premature Deaths: Heart and Circulatory Conditions - Question ( 6 Chw 2024)

Baroness Boycott: My Lords, following on from the Times Health Commission today, the Food Foundation has also produced a report on childhood obesity. The single biggest factor for preventing childhood obesity and thus adult obesity is breastfeeding. It reduces it by a figure of 25%, as the WHO has found from a worldwide study. To put that into context, all the reformulation of soft drinks has achieved only an...
