Canlyniadau 21–40 o 800 ar gyfer said speaker:Caroline Lucas

Renters (Reform) Bill (23 Hyd 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...is vital, so it is right that the Bill contains measures for periodic tenancies, and to ban section 21 no-fault evictions, and that students in the general PRS are also included. As many have said, it is deeply concerning that last Friday the Government appeared to have kicked that part of the Bill down the road—who knows how long for?—by saying that they first need to fix the mess...

Renters (Reform) Bill (23 Hyd 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...minimum energy efficiency standards. When the Secretary of State for Energy Security and Net Zero last week tried to defend the scrapping of energy efficiency standards for the PRS, she essentially said, on the Floor of the House, that it was because they could cost property owners up to £15,000. The right hon. Gentleman will know that the regulations include a £10,000 cap, so the cost...

Israel and Gaza (23 Hyd 2023)

Caroline Lucas: I was pleased to hear the Prime Minister talk of the need to get fuel into Gaza, but as the hon. Member for Arfon (Hywel Williams) said, that was not referenced in yesterday’s joint statement, even though fuel is due to run out in the next few days and without it there will be no water, no functioning hospitals, no bakeries and so on. Can I press the Prime Minister on a question that he...

Resettlement of Afghans (19 Med 2023)

Caroline Lucas: The Minister said that he looks forward to welcoming more of those who stood up for British values at great personal risk, so I want to draw his attention to precisely one of those. My constituent is a former Chevening scholar who has been in fear of his life since 2021. He has, at last, been provisionally accepted on ACRS pathway 3. On UK Government advice, he travelled to Pakistan with...

Nutrient Neutrality: Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill ( 5 Med 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...would not lead to a weakening of environmental standards. Those of us who raised our concerns have repeatedly been told that we were scaremongering. As recently as 12 June, the Solicitor General said in relation to the Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill that “we will not lower environmental protections.”—[Official Report, 21 June 2023; Vol. 734, c. 828.] Yet here we have...

Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Gor 2023)

Caroline Lucas: It is exactly a year to the day since UK temperatures hit a deadly 40°C for the first time, with 3,000 excess deaths last summer. Yet businesses and the Prime Minister’s own climate advisers have said that his climate progress is worryingly slow. He likes to claim that the UK is decarbonising more quickly than the rest of the G7, but since the Paris agreement that is simply not true. He...

Illegal Migration Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (17 Gor 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...law to ensure compliance with our international obligations. Indeed, Ministers will be aware of the contribution from Lord Hope, who served as deputy president of the Supreme Court and last week said that this amendment is a “pure interpretation provision…entirely consistent with the way the courts approach these various conventions….it is entirely orthodox and consistent with...

Illegal Migration Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (17 Gor 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...place should try to prevent that from happening. The Minister has stood at the Dispatch Box telling us that this Bill is about deterrence, whereas the Home Office’s own impact assessment has said: “The Bill is a novel and untested scheme, and it is therefore uncertain what level of deterrence impact it will have.” As a raft of children’s charities have pointed out, once routine...

New Housing: Swift Bricks — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (10 Gor 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...swift bricks can sometimes be inappropriate, so I hope that the Government will not keep saying that. Instead, let us see a change on this as soon as possible. Time is not on our side. As I have said time and again in this House, the UK is one of the most nature-depleted countries in the world, with a staggering 15% of species now at risk of extinction. Swift bricks and swift boxes are...

Rosebank Oilfield: Environmental Impacts (28 Meh 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...demand, we might not be in this position. If they had scaled up much more in the many other technologies that are out there, we would perhaps not be in this position. I come back to what the CCC said. I expect the Minister to disagree with me, but does he disagree with Lord Deben and the Climate Change Committee? They said: “Expansion of fossil fuel production is not in line with Net...

Rosebank Oilfield: Environmental Impacts (28 Meh 2023)

Caroline Lucas: To reinforce what the hon. Member said, we know that the president of COP28 is going to be somebody who absolutely comes from that background, so it is not just a question of domestic collusion with oil companies. The big climate meeting happening later this year will be presided over by a president who we know is absolutely involved in the oil industry. We need to get fossil fuels out of...

Rosebank Oilfield: Environmental Impacts (28 Meh 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...allows fossil fuel giants essentially to hold British taxpayers to ransom. Calls for that have so far fallen on deaf ears but have been bolstered by the Climate Change Committee today, which has said: “There is a strong case for the UK to reconsider its membership”. It was reported last week that Rosebank will be approved by the regulators in the next fortnight, after which the...

Asylum-seeking Children: Hotel Accommodation ( 7 Meh 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...most of the time, so they were delighted to have more suitable and appropriate food. I have no problem with the conditions inside the hotel. As the hon. Member for Hove and I have repeatedly said, our concerns stem from what happens when the child steps outside that hotel. Frankly, everything that I saw does not take away the concern that young children, particularly traumatised young...

Net Zero: 2050 Target ( 6 Meh 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...that there should be no new licences for projects, which would not come online for many years to come. I refer the right hon. Member for Spelthorne to Lord Deben, the chair of the CCC, who has said how much he supports the policy position of no new licensing of oil and gas. He is a prominent member of the right hon. Member’s own party. Finally, let us put to bed the idea that, somehow,...

Reaching Net Zero: Local Government Role ( 5 Meh 2023)

Caroline Lucas: I am grateful that the hon. Lady is recognising the problems around funding, but also around regulatory frameworks. She will know that a report by UK100 has said that local authorities face what they call “Kafkaesque” barriers to pursuing net zero, one of which is in the area of transport. As she knows, the all-party parliamentary group on the green new deal undertook an inquiry on...

Public Access to Nature (18 Mai 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...them, which is somewhat disappointing. I will just correct her: when we are talking about open access land under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000, 8% of English land is accessible, as I said. I am grateful to all Members for taking part in this debate. It has been inspiring to hear people’s very real love of the environments close to them, from Worcestershire to the Isle of...

Public Access to Nature (18 Mai 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...own or have access to a car? For both those groups of people, much of the countryside remains out of reach—a situation that has undoubtedly been exacerbated by cuts to local bus services. Having said that, I am just going to give a quick shout-out to the Brighton & Hove bus company and its “Breeze up to the Downs” service—I am sure the hon. Member for Brighton, Kemptown will agree....

Public Access to Nature (18 Mai 2023)

Caroline Lucas: I hope that everything I have said so far demonstrates that I entirely agree with the point that the hon. Lady makes. I believe it is time to consider a comprehensive right of responsible access in England. With two decades of lived experience, Scotland provides an important model for us to learn from and emulate south of the border. It is important to note that Scotland is not alone in its...

Energy Bill [Lords] ( 9 Mai 2023)

Caroline Lucas: .... The amendment on that tabled in the other place received cross-party support, and I cannot see why the Government would not want to make sure that we retain that. The Government have repeatedly said that they wish to see more community energy generation, but they objected to amendments on that in the Lords on the grounds that they constituted a subsidy. That is not the case. Rather,...

Coronation: Policing of Protests ( 9 Mai 2023)

Caroline Lucas: The Minister just said that the right to peaceful protest is sacrosanct and no one would seek to undermine it, but I put it to him that that is exactly what his Government have just done: Ministers are criminalising protest. Just because some people were allowed to protest, that does not mitigate against the fact that a number were not. Let me just correct him: those who were arrested and...
