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: I thank the hon. Gentleman, who has encapsulated what I said in my earlier intervention and what I am saying now. Yes, it is strange, and disappointing. Let me say a few words about RPI and earnings. The right hon. Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber (Mr Kennedy) and the hon. Member for St Ives (Andrew George) have tabled amendments on earnings that would improve the Bill, and I support...

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: .... Oxfam says that it is Dickensian and rightly points out that slashing the incomes of those at the bottom is not just cold-hearted but wrong-headed, because it will depress the economy further. I said earlier that most people want to work, and I could cite very many examples from my own constituency of people who have come to my surgeries who are desperate for work but have been unable to...

[Hywel Williams in the Chair] — RSPCA (Prosecutions) (29 Ion 2013)

Caroline Lucas: ...am committed to strengthening its provisions, as well as to seeing the ban on the use of dogs in chasing and killing wild mammals rigorously upheld. As the hon. Member for Llanelli (Nia Griffith) said, as with other legislation designed to protect animals, or anything else, enforcement is critical. That is why bringing prosecutions is so important. The RPSCA is uniquely placed to carry...

Contamination of Beef Products: Violence against Women and Girls (14 Chw 2013)

Caroline Lucas: I agree. I also agree with those who said we need a whole-school approach. Yes, PSHE is vital but such education should also be mainstreamed across all other parts of the education system. The figures, tragically, are all too familiar. In Britain, 60,000 women are raped every year and two women a week are killed by a partner or ex-partner. That culture of violence is doing enormous damage to...

Justice and Security Bill [Lords] (Programme) (No. 2): Clause 6 — Declaration permitting closed material applications in proceedings ( 4 Maw 2013)

Caroline Lucas: ...bereaved families of soldiers bringing negligence claims against the Ministry of Defence. Debi Allbutt, whose husband was killed in a so-called friendly fire hit on his Challenger tank in Iraq, has said: “I really don’t think people in the country realise how dangerous this new law will be for justice. I think anyone in my position deserves to know the truth about how their husband, a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions ( 7 Maw 2013)

Caroline Lucas: Last week the Secretary of State said that he was keen to delay European Union proposals to protect essential pollinators from neonicotinoids until new British field data were available. At the very same time, his own chief scientist was telling members of the Environmental Audit Committee that those same trials had been deeply compromised. When will the Secretary of State stop prevaricating...

Business without Debate — Supply and Appropriation (Anticipation and Adjustments) Bill: Schedule 1 — The Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament ( 7 Maw 2013)

Caroline Lucas: ...and Security Committee’s remit is to investigate such claims and, where necessary, ensure that they are corrected. I listened with interest to what the hon. Member for New Forest East (Dr Lewis) said about this not necessarily being the right forum. I am happy to be advised on that, but right now it feels that there is no appropriate forum. The situation of Shaker Aamer, for example,...

Opposition Day — [19th Allotted Day] — Tax Fairness (12 Maw 2013)

Caroline Lucas: As a tax that is much harder to evade or avoid, there is the land value tax. That is supported by one half of the coalition and by the OECD and the IMF. The IFS has said that the case for a land value tax is overwhelming because it is much fairer. Given that that is the case, can the Minister explain why his Government will not even do some basic research into it, as my private Member’s...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Social Housing (18 Maw 2013)

Caroline Lucas: ...some housing associations are excluding poorer people from tenancies because of concern over their ability to pay in the face of Government welfare cuts? Southern Housing Group, for example, has said that reluctantly it tends to let affordable homes in new schemes only to working households. Will the Minister tell the House who exactly will house vulnerable people who are being excluded by...

Energy Generation (17 Ebr 2013)

Caroline Lucas: ...in line with the science, rather than with what we think is politically possible, because the target of decarbonisation by 2030 gives us only a 37% chance of remaining below 2°, and if someone said that we had only a 37% chance of not falling out of the air, I suspect that we would not get on an aeroplane? The odds are very scary.

[John Robertson in the Chair] — Shaker Aamer (24 Ebr 2013)

Caroline Lucas: ...isolation cell, and, when first detained, he was starved, kept awake for nine days in a row and chained into positions that made the slightest movement unbearable. Under those conditions, Shaker said he was delirious and confessed to whatever the Americans wanted just to make the torture stop. Shaker has recently been subjected to a number of violent forced cell extractions, or FCEs, which...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (16 Mai 2013)

Caroline Lucas: The Government said that the pilot badger culls are being carried out to test whether badgers can be killed humanely. They still have not released the criteria by which the cull will be assessed to ascertain whether it is humane. When will those criteria be published—or is the Minister holding them back because he knows perfectly well that they will demonstrate that it is not possible to...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill: Clause 9 — Conversion of civil partnership into marriage (21 Mai 2013)

Caroline Lucas: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Cambridge (Dr Huppert). I will address many of the issues he has raised. As he said powerfully, the amendments seek to provide some small right to the dreadful wrong that has been done to those couples who were forced by the state to annul marriages in order for one of them to avail themselves of their most basic civil rights. Amendments 18 and...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill: Clause 9 — Conversion of civil partnership into marriage (21 Mai 2013)

Caroline Lucas: ..., the Minister expressed sympathy for couples who had been required to make the difficult choice of whether to end their marriage to enable one of the parties to obtain gender recognition, but she said that she could not support an amendment that sought to reinstate marriages from the date they were annulled because of the difficulties that could be caused with any rights and...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill: Clause 9 — Conversion of civil partnership into marriage (21 Mai 2013)

Caroline Lucas: Yes, I think it does underline the benefit. As we have said, the numbers are not huge, but for the individuals involved, it was very distressing, so I think it appropriate that we take this opportunity to address the situation. My amendment 49 would address the continuing discriminatory hurdle in the Bill around pensions. The Bill allows employers and pension providers to award gay spouses...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill: Schedule 6 — Marriage overseas (21 Mai 2013)

Caroline Lucas: So much has been said about same-sex marriage over the past couple of days. It is important on the occasion of Third Reading to return to the fundamental principle that underpins what we are trying to achieve. That principle is equality. Ultimately, this is about basic human rights. Nobody should be denied on the basis of their sexuality the opportunity to be legally married. We are righting...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: New Clause 8 — Power to make capacity market rules ( 3 Meh 2013)

Caroline Lucas: ..., we are talking about a public subsidy for nuclear, which goes against the coalition agreement. The bulk of my proposals on new nuclear simply seek to return us to the coalition agreement, which said that new nuclear should receive no public subsidy. Many people are hugely disappointed that Ministers are ditching their commitment so shamelessly. A Government who genuinely want to tackle...

Energy Bill: Clause 1 — Decarbonisation ( 4 Meh 2013)

Caroline Lucas: ...UK and globally—those who have contributed the least to the problem. In that respect, this crisis is not unlike the banking crisis. As many business leaders and experts such as Lord Stern have said, there is no business as usual at all in a 3° or 4° warmer world. A couple of years ago, at the launch of the UK’s climate adaptation plan, the big idea was managing the unavoidable and...

Energy Bill: Clause 1 — Decarbonisation ( 4 Meh 2013)

Caroline Lucas: ...heard a lot about the economic case. There is no shortage of companies telling us that a decarbonisation target is essential. The joint letter of more than 50 Aldersgate Group members, for example, said: “the Government’s perceived commitment to the low carbon transition is being undermined by…the absence of a specific carbon intensity target.” Many other companies would say the...

Energy Bill: New Clause 11 — Provision about electricity demand reduction ( 4 Meh 2013)

Caroline Lucas: ...Hove (Mike Weatherley), so in recognition of that I will call them the amendments from Brighton and Hove. They are basically about decentralised energy, which was another area where the Minister said that he appreciated the direction but did not feel that action was necessary. I quote from “Power to the People—the Decentralised Energy Revolution”, a document from the Prime Minister...
