Canlyniadau 141–160 o 700 ar gyfer said speaker:Caroline Lucas

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...

Badger Cull — [Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] (11 Rha 2013)

Caroline Lucas: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his helpful intervention. I agree with him absolutely, and I am familiar with the Sussex badger vaccination project. As he rightly said, it is a service run by volunteers to offer landowners and farmers in East Sussex the chance to vaccinate badgers at very low cost, thereby providing a humane and less controversial method of tackling the disease. It has said...

UN Climate Change Conference: Government Response (16 Ion 2019)

Caroline Lucas: I echo what others have said about the importance of this debate. I am grateful that the hon. Lady secured it; a number of us tried to, but she was the one who succeeded and I am glad. On the point about the UK doing enough, is it not the case that it is easy to say, “We’re getting rid of coal, so we’re the good ones”, when in fact we are outsourcing our emissions to poorer countries?...

Bills Presented: Miscellaneous (15 Gor 2014)

Caroline Lucas: ...—process and content are absolutely connected. There is no justification for rushing through legislation without proper scrutiny and due process. The right hon. Member for Blackburn (Mr Straw) said that he thought there was no reason not to rush it through, but my answer would be that the reason is precisely that of parliamentary sovereignty and the importance of parliamentary scrutiny....

Economy Update ( 5 Tach 2020)

Caroline Lucas: In reply to a question I asked the Chancellor back in September, he said that those excluded from the self-employed scheme earned more than £50,000 and were in the top 5% of all earners. I would like him to admit today that that is not a fair picture of those who have been left out. Millions have been excluded who are not and never have been in the top 5% of all earners. Will he explain why...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (25 Hyd 2022)

Caroline Lucas: The Minister said earlier that the Bill was proportionate, but that is exactly what it is not, particularly given the sunset clause that means that DEFRA will have to go through revising and amending more than one piece of law a day between now and the end of next year. It is not proportionate; it is indiscriminate. It is also ideologically driven. Does he agree that DEFRA staff have better...

Energy and Climate Change: Shale Gas (16 Ion 2014)

Caroline Lucas: On Tuesday the Prime Minister said people objecting to shale gas on climate grounds are irrational, yet climate scientist experts and investors all warn that the vast majority of existing fossil fuel reserves must remain underground—they are unburnable if we are to avoid catastrophic climate change—and just today we hear of the BP report that shale gas will not help cut emissions and that...

Exiting the European Union (11 Maw 2019)

Caroline Lucas: ...a few weeks ago secured by the right hon. Member for Gainsborough (Sir Edward Leigh), the Under-Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, the hon. Member for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng), said: “I must stress that it is not entirely clear…that a conditional interpretive declaration would have the effect that he seeks in allowing the United Kingdom unilaterally to put an end...

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...

Renters (Reform) Bill: Schedule 5 - Application of Chapter 1 of Part 1 to existing tenancies: transitional provision (24 Ebr 2024)

Caroline Lucas: ...knows, I tried to intervene earlier during his summing-up speech. I merely wanted to pursue the point about rent tribunals that I made in my initial intervention. In the White Paper, the Government said that they were going to prevent tribunals from increasing rents beyond the amount that landlords initially asked for when they proposed a rent increase. Why have the Government gone back on...

Covid-19 Vaccinations: 12 to 15-year-olds (13 Med 2021)

Caroline Lucas: ..., for example, where only 2% of people are fully vaccinated. Will he consider prioritising vaccines that are within their shelf life, for example, and giving them to COVAX? As he and others have said many times, none of us is safe until we all are.

Action on Climate Change and Decarbonisation ( 5 Gor 2022)

Caroline Lucas: ...bringing forward good stuff fast enough—in other words, the delivery gap that the Committee on Climate Change referenced. The Government are also doing bad stuff. The Committee on Climate Change said that the Government’s plans for more new oil and gas projects in the North sea did not make economic sense. Will the Minister listen to that committee, which is there to give him advice,...

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...

Education and Adoption Bill (22 Meh 2015)

Caroline Lucas: ...the conclusion of the Committee’s report published earlier this year, which stated that it was still too early to say how much the academies programme had helped to raise standards? Ofsted has said the same thing: there is no evidence that the academies model is the best way of improving standards. So why are he and his party so adamant that that is the way forward, and why are they...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (25 Hyd 2022)

Caroline Lucas: ...from the EU system of approval and could lead to yet more, for example, animal testing in proving the safety of chemical products for export. This is bad law-making. The former Secretary of State said in his ministerial statement on the Bill that it would “fully realise the opportunities of Brexit”. If he were here, I would ask him, in all seriousness, to tell me for whom those...

Airports National Policy Statement ( 5 Meh 2018)

Caroline Lucas: ...same projections imply that if this runway is approved aviation will take up over half of the UK’s entire carbon budget by 2050, which is absurd. Given that the Committee on Climate Change has said “Don’t use international offsetting,” can the Secretary of State explain how on earth this proposal is compatible with our climate change objectives?

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...

Delegated Legislation: Clause 1 — Academy arrangements (21 Gor 2010)

Caroline Lucas: ...over the past few weeks or months at one particular academy, there is nothing to prevent it from happening again. That is the real concern. It beggars belief that the Minister in the other place said that although he shared the concerns raised about creationism, "one of the core aims of the policy is precisely that the Secretary of State should not dictate to academies what they should...

Finance Bill: Clause 1 - Increase in rate of tax (30 Tach 2022)

Caroline Lucas: ...is becoming so extreme that I might burst at any moment. Does he recognise that this country has the world’s most generous tax regime for oil and gas companies? Does he recollect that BP’s CEO said the company is raking in more money than it knows what to do with? He compared his company to a cash machine. Does the hon. Gentleman not think his constituents in Poole might be rather more...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 45 - Sanctions for the purposes of tenants’ energy efficiency improvements regulations: England and Wales (14 Meh 2011)

Caroline Lucas: I thank the Minister for that clarification, but it alters what he said earlier in answer to my concerns about clause 45. It now looks as if there will not be an option to make landlords pay a £5,000 fine, which might concentrate their minds. In that case, could we not have a backstop in this clause as well? It would equalise the power imbalance between tenant and landlord. Obviously, the...
