Unauthorised Encampments (Brighton) (15 Meh 2011)

Caroline Lucas: On a point of order, Mr Streeter. What has been said is simply not true. The hon. Gentleman talked about—

Unauthorised Encampments (Brighton) (15 Meh 2011)

Caroline Lucas: .... What we should be doing across the south-east is working together to find more permanent sites. That is the crux of the problem that we are discussing. He will know, because council officers have said so, that the number of Travellers and Gypsies coming into Brighton is no greater this summer than it has been for any other summer recently. He will also know that the very first act of the...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 64 - Promotion of reductions in carbon emissions: gas transporters and suppliers (16 Meh 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...to the Minister for his response, and I acknowledge his two good examples of how the Government are trying not to make measures regressive, but why not follow the logic of precisely what he just said? If it does not make sense to put the cost of the RHI and carbon capture and storage on everyone’s  bills in a blanket approach, surely more than anything else if we are trying to design a...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 64 - Promotion of reductions in carbon emissions: gas transporters and suppliers (16 Meh 2011)

Caroline Lucas: The Minister has said in the past that he is a reasonable person, and he is. I therefore find it hard to understand why he appears to be saying that if we are tackling fuel poverty, somehow we are not tackling climate change. To me, the two things come together beautifully, and they could do so with the ECO. For example, if we have two properties that are both hard to treat, in one of which...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Energy Bill [Lords]: Schedule 1 - Reducing carbon emissions and home-heating costs: minor and consequential amendments (16 Meh 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...can provide details of a property that do not give any information on the energy efficiency of a building if the EPC has been commissioned but not delivered, or if the property is for rent. As I said earlier, including an EPC in a property’s written particulars means that the energy efficiency will become a key determinant in a decision on which home to rent or buy. Finally, subsection...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Energy Bill [Lords]: Schedule 1 - Reducing carbon emissions and home-heating costs: minor and consequential amendments (16 Meh 2011)

Caroline Lucas: I thank the Minister for his comments. It is reassuring to know that we are going in the same direction, although, as ever, I want to get there a bit faster. In the light of what he has said, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 78 - Annual report by Secretary of State on security of energy supplies (16 Meh 2011)

Caroline Lucas: I thank the hon. Lady for her intervention. I absolutely agree with her, particularly about energy security. It is one of the subtitles of the Bill and, as she said, distributed, renewable energy can make a huge contribution to our overall energy security, and I look forward to hearing the Minister’s response.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 80 - Acquisition of rights to use upstream petroleum infrastructure (16 Meh 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...that we need to wean ourselves off fossil fuels, but the word that we disagree about is “gradually”. Climate change cannot wait for us to gradually wean ourselves off fossil fuels. He said that it is not realistic to go faster, but I think it is not realistic to believe that the climate will wait until we finally garner the political will to deal with this differently. I strongly argue...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Energy Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 - Carbon emissions in local authority areas (21 Meh 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...because if we are to measure progress, build on best practice and deliver real results, we need targets, not just strategies. The Minister spoke earlier of the success of voluntary initiatives and said that there was no need for any further statutory duties. I argue that the urgency around climate change means that we must meet targets even more quickly, even more ambitiously and even more...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Energy Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 - Carbon emissions in local authority areas (21 Meh 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...councils will say, “This green deal is all very well, but how much of it do we have to do and when do we have do it?” It does not help them very much. In 2007, the Local Government Association said: “Our unanimous view at present is that a statutory duty should be imposed on those councils that, within the next two years, do not respond to climate change.” That was back in 2007....

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Energy Bill [Lords]: New Clause 18 - Carbon dioxide emissions performance standards for electricity generation (21 Meh 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...sector, because it is unclear when the next chance will come. At the earliest, I understand that the Government do not expect a new Energy Bill to be presented before next spring and, as I have said on many previous occasions in Committee, the urgent need to tackle climate change does not allow for that kind of delay. By inserting the enabling powers for an EPS into the Bill, the Committee...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Energy Bill [Lords]: New Clause 19 - Micro combined heat and power passive flue gas heat recovery devices (21 Meh 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...as a way of kick-starting the use of passive flue gas heat recovery systems, so that the scale of production can be ramped up and the costs reduced. I understand that leading manufacturers have said that mass production of these systems could slash retail costs from the current £600 to as little as £100. When independent test results suggest an annual saving on household fuel bills of...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Energy Bill [Lords]: New Clause 22 - Display energy certificates (21 Meh 2011)

Caroline Lucas: I want to add my strong support to the new clause. I was pleased to see, as the hon. Member for Richmond Park has said, that there has been so much support from businesses and elsewhere for the proposal. An open letter was sent to the Prime Minister, the Deputy Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change from the British Property Federation, the chief executive of...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Energy Bill [Lords]: New Clause 43 - Moratorium on offshore drilling in the Arctic and other fragile/hazardous environments (21 Meh 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...he boarded Cairn’s Leif Eriksson rig in the Arctic to hand the operators a 50,000-name petition demanding that they release their plans for responding to potential oil spills. Naidoo eloquently said: “For me this is one of the defining environmental battles of our age, it’s a fight for sanity against the madness of a mindset that sees the melting of the Arctic sea ice as a good...

Backbench Business — [29th Allotted Day]: Wild Animals (Circuses) (23 Meh 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...legal impediments”. Exactly the same excuse is being used today. Governments were given the legal advice that it would be impossible to ban imports of cat and dog fur, and the same was said of seal fur, but when individual Governments challenged that dubious advice, they were able to make the bans happen. It is when a number of forward-thinking member states call strongly for action on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Africa and the Middle East (29 Meh 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...of the attacks on the Free Gaza flotilla last year by sailing down the river outside Parliament and marking the launch of a new Free Gaza flotilla. As the Foreign Secretary has previously said that the situation in Gaza is unacceptable and unsustainable, will he tell us what further action he is taking to help get the siege lifted, and will he do everything that he can to get guarantees...

Bill Presented — Police (detention and bail) bill: Clause 78 — Supplies of commodities to be used in producing electricity ( 5 Gor 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...stand to gain £50 million a year from it until 2030. It is vital for the Government to clarify whether such a windfall constitutes the kind of subsidy for nuclear power that they have repeatedly said they will not provide. It looks very much like a subsidy to me, and it looks very much like a subsidy to the Chair of the Energy and Climate Change Committee, the hon. Member for South...

[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — Future of CDC (14 Gor 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...to say that Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission reports that four of the companies in which CDC-backed funds have been invested are fronts for laundering money. That money is said to have been corruptly obtained by James Ibori, the ex-Governor of Nigeria’s Delta state. Mr Ibori, who has previously been convicted twice in the UK, is on trial here again, this time for...

[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — Future of CDC (14 Gor 2011)

Caroline Lucas: I am sorry to delay the Secretary of State on this issue, but I want to return to the point raised by the hon. Member for Birmingham, Northfield (Richard Burden). The Secretary of State said that the figure of 50% was not arbitrary, but he then said that the criteria were that that figure “feels right”, which does sound arbitrary. Will the Secretary of State be clearer about the criteria...

Metropolitan Police Service: National Policy Statements (Energy) (18 Gor 2011)

Caroline Lucas: The Tyndall Centre has said that even the targets of the fourth carbon budget would provide only a 56% to 63% chance of avoiding a 2° C rise in average global temperatures. Is it not therefore the case that even the fourth carbon budget is not setting the right targets?
