Business of the House: Badger Cull (25 Hyd 2012)

Caroline Lucas: I have seen that briefing, but I would say that the emotion is coming from those on the Government Benches. The science is with the Opposition, and I refer the hon. Gentleman to what Lord Krebs said in the House of Lords just a few days ago, which makes it absolutely clear that quite a lot of misinformation is unfortunately being spread by the NFU and others about the seriousness of the issue...

Business of the House: Badger Cull (25 Hyd 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...painstaking, expert and balanced”, and I commend it to Ministers as an exemplar of how to bring high-quality science into public decision making. The consultation from the coalition Government said of this RBC trial that it was the only one that was conducted as a rigorous scientific trial. The conclusions of that ISG report for the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs,...

Business of the House: Badger Cull (25 Hyd 2012)

Caroline Lucas: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. I think that it is worth reading what Lord Krebs said in the House of Lords, because it is exactly the point the hon. Gentleman identifies. He said that “the long-term, large-scale culling of badgers is estimated to reduce the incidence of TB in cattle by 16% after nine years. In other words, 84% of the problem is still there. To...

Business of the House: Badger Cull (25 Hyd 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...like the debate to be based on the science, not on emotional calls from the Government Benches. Professor Lord Krebs, who devised the randomised badger cull and is firmly opposed to the cull, has said: “I have not found any scientists who are experts in population biology in the distribution of infectious diseases in wildlife who think that culling is a good idea… People have...

Business of the House: Badger Cull (25 Hyd 2012)

Caroline Lucas: Thank you, Mr Speaker. In order to do so, I go back to what I said just before the hon. Gentleman intervened, which is that Lord Krebs himself is saying that people are cherry-picking certain aspects to try to get the result they want. If the hon. Gentleman looked at the full set of recommendations from the document instead of those that he cherry-picked, he would see that in fact the vast...

Business of the House: Badger Cull (25 Hyd 2012)

Caroline Lucas: I will not give way; I want to follow what Mr Speaker said and make some progress. The case against culling on the grounds of efficiency and effectiveness is overwhelming. That approach is also potentially entirely counterproductive. The independent scientific group initially found a decrease in the disease of approximately 23% in the centre of the culled area but an increase of approximately...

Business of the House: Badger Cull (25 Hyd 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...to use as legal and resultant trade implications. That was three years ago and we really should have made more progress than we have to date. As the hon. Member for Cheltenham (Martin Horwood) has said, biosecurity is a very important issue. Vaccination needs to go hand in hand with excellent biosecurity. According to Professor John Bourne, former chairman of the ISG: “Despite some...

Business of the House: Badger Cull (25 Hyd 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ..., but what we differ about is the most effective way of addressing it. The science is on the side of those who oppose the cull, because it shows that it is not the most effective way forward. As I said, modern husbandry practices place chronic stress on intensively farmed animals, and a number of scientists are also pointing to the way in which cattle have been inbred for many years as a...

Business of the House: Badger Cull (25 Hyd 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...already taking a lead in carrying out vaccine trials? I am coming to the end of my speech, Mr Deputy Speaker, because I can see that you are looking a little perturbed. Even were all that I have said about the science, the alternatives to a cull and its lack of effectiveness to be discounted, the Government’s proposals remain deeply flawed. Although the pilot culls in west...

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — Combat Troop Withdrawal (Afghanistan) ( 7 Tach 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...that they are fighting an unwinnable war. Let us nail once and for all the myth that the presence of combat troops in Afghanistan is making the British people safer. As other hon. Members have said this morning, the truth is likely to be precisely the opposite. We have been told so many lies and untruths about this war that it sometimes feels difficult to separate what is true from what is...

Opposition Day — [9th Allotted Day]: Ash Dieback Disease (12 Tach 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...to ensure both a rapid response to other disease outbreaks and greater screening and control of imports to minimise the spectre of disease. Finally, let me underline what other Members have said, which is that it is not enough for the Secretary of State to say that he will move resources from elsewhere in DEFRA to deal with this problem. If he does that, we will not know what robbing Peter...

Bill Presented: Animal Welfare (Exports) (13 Rha 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...give us confidence? It is not even clear whether it intends to increase the number of inspections that are taking place or simply to meet its current legal obligations. I agree with those who have said that the facilities are Ramsgate are not suitable for ensuring the welfare of animals if they need to be offloaded in an emergency. Despite the Minister of State, Department for Environment,...

Bill Presented: Animal Welfare (Exports) (13 Rha 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ..., but to say simply that we should carry on with business as usual is not an adequate response. As colleagues will know, I am a former MEP and I have worked extensively on this issue. As I have said, ideally I want a complete ban on the trade of live exports, but imposing a maximum journey time of eight hours would at least help reduce the current suffering. That should also be backed up...

Charities Act 2011 (Amendment) (19 Rha 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...Speaker. Yesterday in my Adjournment debate on high-carbon investment, the Minister of State, Department of Energy and Climate Change, the hon. Member for South Holland and The Deepings (Mr Hayes) said that “the Committee on Climate Change has recognised in its recent progress report…that we are on track to meet our first three carbon budgets”.—[ Official Report, 18 December 2012;...

Charities Act 2011 (Amendment): Energy Bill (19 Rha 2012)

Caroline Lucas: ...time when we need more decentralised energy. Lack of time means that I can focus on only a few aspects. I agree with everything that the right hon. Member for Oldham West and Royton (Mr Meacher) said about nuclear. Let me say a few words about energy efficiency and fuel poverty. It is extremely disappointing that the Bill overlooks the huge potential of energy efficiency and demand...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Welfare Benefits Up-rating Bill ( 8 Ion 2013)

Caroline Lucas: ...homelessness or as those who are struggling with mental disability or mental illness are finally tipped into greater ill health. It will be counter-productive because, as many hon. Members have said, if we want to get the economy moving again, the best way to do so is to put money into the pockets of the poorest, because they are the ones who will spend it in the local economy, not the...

Antibiotics (Intensive Farms) ( 9 Ion 2013)

Caroline Lucas: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing this important debate. In the light of the very real health risks and the strong words from a former chief medical officer, as the hon. Gentleman has said, about the unnecessary use of antibiotics being nothing less than “a death warrant for a future patient”, does he agree that we need a legally binding timetable for the phased ending of all...

Business of the House: Nuclear Deterrent (17 Ion 2013)

Caroline Lucas: ...the notion that nuclear weapons give us deterrence and security. In a letter to The Times, three of those leaders—Field Marshal Lord Bramall, General Lord Ramsbotham and General Sir Hugh Beach—said: “Nuclear weapons have shown themselves to be completely useless as a deterrent to the threats and scale of violence we currently, or are likely to, face—particularly international...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Clause 1 — Up-rating of certain social security benefits for tax years 2014-15 and 2015-16 (21 Ion 2013)

Caroline Lucas: ...a cruel and callous Bill. Given that that is the case, does he not think that Labour supporters might be disappointed that he will not commit now to re-link the upratings with RPI? Nor has Labour said that if it were to form a Government next time, they would reverse the Bill. Is not there a danger that people will think that it is all rhetoric and no action from the Opposition?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Clause 1 — Up-rating of certain social security benefits for tax years 2014-15 and 2015-16 (21 Ion 2013)

Caroline Lucas: ...that they did so on a short-term basis to tackle the deficit. The former shadow Pensions Minister, now shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, the hon. Member for Leeds West (Rachel Reeves), said that the Opposition supported the switch to CPI indexation as a temporary measure, and in July 2011 she said: “Making a permanent change from the use of the retail prices index to the consumer...
