Betting Shops: Home Department (19 Gor 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...of evidence to suggest that prohibition is not the most successful way to reduce drug-related harms, and that there are other approaches. As the chair of the UK Bar Council, Nicholas Green QC, has said: “A growing body of comparative evidence suggests that decriminalising personal use can have positive consequences. It can free up huge amounts of police resources, reduce crime and...

Public Disorder (11 Aws 2011)

Caroline Lucas: Violence is always to be condemned, but as the Prime Minister said, seeking to understand violence is a world away from seeking to justify it. Indeed, we ought to try to understand it to stop it happening in future. Given the growing evidence, from Scarman onwards, that increasing inequality has a role to play in drawing at least some people into violent behaviour, can the Prime Minister...

Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill: New Clause 3 — Expiry and repeal of TPIM powers ( 5 Med 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...court. The continuation of a system of Government detention entirely outside the rule of law is neither effective nor just, and that is why I hope that, as the hon. Member for Foyle (Mark Durkan) said, we can make these annual reviews more rigorous. Perhaps we can use them in the way I imagine people on control orders hope they will be used: for proper, rigorous scrutiny. Today, I was in...

Bill Presented — European Union Act 2011 (Amendment) Bill: New Clause 1 — Complaints about exercise of public health functions by local authorities ( 7 Med 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...terms of income, and which goes directly against the NHS principles by significantly reducing people’s access to all forms to health care simply because of their inability to pay. Much has been said by hon. Members on both sides of the House about the founding principles of the NHS, and it will continue to be said. However, I put it to hon. Members that amendment 48, more than any other,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Corporate Harm (Overseas Victims) (13 Med 2011)

Caroline Lucas: I thank the Secretary of State for that interesting reply. Notwithstanding his response, he will be aware that the United Nations Special Representative on Business and Human Rights has said that clauses 41 to 43 of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill will present a major barrier to justice for overseas victims of human rights abuses by UK multinationals, not least...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: New Clause 10 — Green deal installation apprenticeships (14 Med 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...and Goole (Andrew Percy). The hon. Gentleman mentioned a survey. I have figures from the same survey. A key statistic that the hon. Gentleman did not mention was that about a third of home owners said that if the interest rate were set at 2% per annum, they would be “very” or “fairly” likely to take up the green deal. As the hon. Gentleman said, the figure fell to just 7% of home...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: New Clause 10 — Green deal installation apprenticeships (14 Med 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...why the green investment bank must step in. As Members may remember, on Second Reading the Secretary of State quoted Conor Hennebry, director of global capital markets at Deutsche Bank, as having said that “‘the City is practically champing at the bit to finance the government’s green deal.’”—[ Official Report, 10 May 2011; Vol. 527, c. 1059.] That sounds very good, but the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: New Clause 11 — Agreement about modifying decommissioning programme (14 Med 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...to amend new clause 11, which was based on a clause that was withdrawn by the Government in Committee because of cross-party concerns. I have not been fully reassured by what the Minister has said about the new clause, which has not met all those concerns. My amendments therefore seek to ensure that the Secretary of State cannot decide not to exercise his powers to modify a nuclear...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: New Clause 1 — Energy efficiency aim (14 Med 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...carbon floor price, a tax on gas and electricity companies, or, if necessary, direct taxation. Let me say a few words about why those resources are so desperately needed. As other hon. Members have said, the scourge of fuel poverty is getting worse, not better. The latest Government statistics, from 2009-10, show 5.5 million UK households in fuel poverty, or 21% of the total. Retail energy...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Weightman Report (Fukushima) (11 Hyd 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...concludes: “Flooding risks are unlikely to prevent construction of new nuclear power stations”. How can the Minister be so sure that there is no risk from flooding, given that the ONR has said that it has not had the ability to check that?

Violence against Women and Girls (12 Hyd 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...this area, and of course I absolutely agree with what she says. It is also interesting that young women themselves tell us that they want things to change. Around 52% of young women who were polled said that ending domestic violence against women and children is the issue that they care most about. That is according to research carried out by Girlguiding UK in conjunction with the Fawcett...

Backbench Business — [32nd( )Allotted Day]: Procedure Committee Reports (13 Hyd 2011)

Caroline Lucas: The hon. Gentleman said that the agreement was on the voluntary introduction of explanatory statements, but we are driving towards something mandatory. In his response to the Committee’s report, words such as “significant burden”, “lukewarm support”, “inconclusive” and “disappointing” strongly suggest that the Government are not firmly behind our proposal.

Opposition Day — [Un-allotted Day]: Environmental Protection and Green Growth (26 Hyd 2011)

Caroline Lucas: I am gratified by the extent to which successive Governments have sought to brand themselves as green—after all, imitation is said to be the sincerest form of flattery. However, I also see it as part of my role to scrutinise the authenticity of any promises made and, most importantly, to inquire whether fine and noble rhetoric is backed by fast and ambitious action. It is important to say...

Education and Training (Young People with Autism): New Clause 26 — Offence of squatting in a residential building ( 1 Tach 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...on community relations. We need to see instead efforts increased to enforce the current law properly and swiftly, including better training for police officers. As many Opposition Members have said, many homeless people are pushed into squatting and do not do so out of choice. The appalling and often dangerous conditions in many squats are hardly attractive. Research by Crisis shows that...

[Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] — backbench business — Extradition (24 Tach 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...of Deborah Dark and Gary McKinnon and far too many others. Like other hon. Members, I want to use the opportunity of today’s debate to raise the case of Babar Ahmad. As other hon. Members have said, Babar Ahmad, a British citizen, has been detained in the UK for seven years without charge or trial. He is fighting extradition to the USA under the Extradition Act 2003, which, incredibly,...

[Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] — backbench business — Extradition (24 Tach 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...horrific physical, sexual and religious abuse by the arresting police officers. In March 2009, the Metropolitan police force finally admitted liability in the royal courts of justice in London and said that it had carried out the assault on Babar Ahmad in December 2003. The then Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Sir Paul Stephenson, admitted that Babar had been the victim of a “serious,...

Energy and Climate Change (20 Rha 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...rises of 3°C or 4°C within this century.” The consequences of the latest weak and delayed agreement are laid bare by Fatih Birol, the chief economist at the International Energy Agency, who has said: “If we do not have an international agreement, whose effect is put in place by 2017, then the door to”— holding temperatures to below 2° of warming— “will be closed forever”....

Business of the House: Backbench Business — [Un-allotted Day] — Pub Companies (12 Ion 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...that even the limited package that has been announced will not actually be delivered, given the pub companies’ history of broken promises and abandoned commitments. As other hon. Members have said, pubs are central to our communities. Chris Beaumont, the landlord of The Greys in the Hanover area of my constituency, tells me that his is the only pub in the area that has not closed and...

Business of the House (26 Ion 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...s decision to appeal against the Court ruling that it was illegal to slash solar tariffs retrospectively raises critical questions about whether the UK is a safe place to invest at all. The CBI has said that it “creates a mood of uncertainty that puts off investors”. May we therefore have an urgent debate on the impact of that decision on investor confidence in the UK?

Alcohol Strategy ( 7 Chw 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...a year, if we look at the total costs, but many thousands of people’s lives. This is a fundamental public health issue: people are getting avoidable diseases and dying early. As others have said, those of us who are on the side of supporting minimum pricing do not want to stop people having fun and enjoying a drink; we want a strategy in place to ensure that as far as possible people...
