Alcohol Strategy ( 7 Chw 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...drinkers. The big red herring in this debate is that if the price of alcohol is increased, life will suddenly become enormously difficult for moderate drinkers. As the hon. Member for Totnes has said, with a 50p per unit minimum price a harmful drinker would spend an average of £163 a year extra if they continued with the habit, but a moderate drinker would spend an extra £12 a year. I...

Opposition Day: [Un-Allotted Half Day] — Banking (Responsibility and Reform) ( 7 Chw 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...lowest-paid staff of a company, or a guarantee that no member of staff should receive an annual bonus exceeding the annual wage of the lowest-paid worker in that business or organisation. I have said that tackling pay was just one part of the challenge. There are many others: 3 million people in the UK do not even have a bank account, and 9 million lack access to affordable credit. Banking...

Energy Suppliers and Prices (28 Chw 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...also feeling the pinch from the increasing cost of energy. More than 94% of businesses have seen an increase in energy costs, according to the Forum of Private Business. The energy regulator has said that although fossil fuel price rises—the wholesale price of gas, and so forth—are clearly the driving factor pushing up energy bills, on top of those rises the big six are increasing...

Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Rio+20 Summit (28 Chw 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...not increasing our well-being. I could not put it better than Professor Tim Jackson, a professor at the university of Surrey who wrote the wonderful report, “Prosperity without growth?” He has said that we “spend money we don’t have on things we don’t need to create impressions that won’t last on people we don’t care about.” To me, that sums up more or less what we are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions ( 1 Maw 2012)

Caroline Lucas: At the previous DEFRA Question Time the Minister, the right hon. Member for South East Cambridgeshire (Mr Paice), said that “there never was any intention to dispose of the whole public forest estate.”—[ Official Report, 19 January 2012; Vol. 538, c. 870.] Yet in evidence to the Lords Committee inquiry in 2010 he stated that “we wish to proceed with…very substantial disposal of...

Royal Assent: Assisted Suicide (27 Maw 2012)

Caroline Lucas: .... I am a vice-chair of the all-party group on choice at the end of life, and I am personally supportive of a change in the law on assisted dying for terminally ill, mentally competent adults. That said, I want to reiterate that today’s debate is about the application of the existing law on assisted suicide, and not about a change in the law. Of course, I fully support the development of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Foreign Affairs and International Development (15 Mai 2012)

Caroline Lucas: I am grateful to the Foreign Secretary. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, may I ask him why, in an eloquent speech that has lasted for 53 minutes, he has still said nothing about the risk to our security from climate change? It is not just me saying this. People from the UN downwards are saying that climate change poses a greater threat to our national security than terrorism or...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Foreign Affairs and International Development (15 Mai 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ..., but is based on the advice from the Committee on Climate Change. I hope that the Prime Minister will ensure that that happens, given his own explanation of the crucial role of the committee. He said that it exists to “take the politics out of climate change and show our intention to get to grips with the problem.” Here is a perfect opportunity for him to demonstrate exactly that. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Foreign Affairs and International Development (15 Mai 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...told, is artificially deflated. Like nuclear, an obsession with gas is another expensive distraction from a decisive and rapid shift to an efficient sustainable power system. The Chancellor has said that gas is cheap, but he is wrong. It might have been cheap 10 years ago but it certainly is not today. His Government’s own figures show that gas has been the main cause of higher energy...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Foreign Affairs and International Development (15 Mai 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...and urgency of the climate threat demands greater national and international leadership. Almost two years ago, the Prime Minister told us that he wanted this Government to be the greenest ever. He said that the green economy was a real opportunity to drive green jobs and “make sure we have our share of the industries of the future.” I could not agree more, and that is why we need more...

Undercover Policing (13 Meh 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...protestors, ruling that crucial evidence recorded by an undercover officer, Mark Kennedy, operating under the false name of Mark Stone, was withheld from the original trial. The judges said that they had seen evidence that appeared to show that Kennedy was “involved in activities that went further than the authorisation he was given”, and that he was “arguably, an agent...

Lineside Vegetation (Network Rail Policy) (27 Meh 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...police had investigated complaints about tree-felling; and what estimate had been made of the total area of trees to be felled in the coming five years. I had a very short reply, which essentially said that the Department does not keep that kind of information because it is the business of a private company. I then asked similar questions of Network Rail and received a very unhelpful...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — Green Economy (28 Meh 2012)

Caroline Lucas: I am grateful to the hon. Lady for giving way to me for a second time, but I cannot let pass what she has just said about the Government’s “consistent and constant” green energy policies, because they have been the exact opposite. Whether on solar or on wind, they have chopped and changed, and that is exactly why so many solar companies and wind companies are so furious—because they...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — Green Economy (28 Meh 2012)

Caroline Lucas: It does not make me feel any better to know it is also closing plants in other parts of the world. It has clearly said one of the reasons why it did not go ahead in Sheerness was that it did not have enough orders for turbines on the order book. If that is a problem here in the UK, we should be addressing that, rather than worrying about what is happening in China. One measure that would...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — Green Economy (28 Meh 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...Back Benchers, we would be forgiven for assuming otherwise. In November, a YouGov survey found strong support for renewables, with 60% of people supporting wind power subsidies. The Prime Minister said in his half-speech at the clean energy ministerial meeting in April that he passionately believed that the rapid growth of renewable energy was vital to the UK’s future, but, sadly, his...

General Matters (17 Gor 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...tied up in property and unsustainable accumulation of debt. Support for this idea comes from interesting quarters both historically and today. For example, in February this year, Samuel Brittan said in the Financial Times that “the case for a land tax is one of the oldest and least disputed propositions in economic thought.” He went on to explain: “Many chancellors have said that...

Opposition Day — [5th Allotted Day]: Rail Fares ( 5 Med 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ..., one man told me how he had to give in his notice at his job in London because he simply cannot afford to get there. Now he is unemployed because he could not afford his rail fare. Much has been said today about the impact of spiralling ticket prices on cash-strapped commuters, who are rightly furious that trains continue to be overcrowded and unreliable as well as overpriced; that public...

Plastic Bags (17 Hyd 2012)

Caroline Lucas: I thank the Minister for allowing me to intervene. I was being a little impatient, because he said that he encourages people to reduce waste and not use plastic bags. Could he concretely say how that encouragement finds its way down to ordinary people? It is true that they have the opportunity to reduce waste, but they are not doing it enough.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Bovine TB and Badger Control (23 Hyd 2012)

Caroline Lucas: The Secretary of State said that vaccination is only 60% or 70% effective, but is that not an awful lot more than 16% effective for the cull? Secondly, he said that a cattle vaccination and the DIVA test are years off, but that is not the case—that is not what scientists are telling us. Will he use the money that has so far been earmarked for the cull to bring those vaccines to market as...

Business of the House (25 Hyd 2012)

Caroline Lucas: After nearly 11 years of being held without charge or trial, British resident Shaker Aamer is still in Guantanamo Bay, in spite of the fact that both US and UK authorities have said that he can be released. May we have an urgent debate to try to understand what the obstacles are to getting this man released and make that a real priority?
