Canlyniadau 41–60 o 800 ar gyfer said speaker:Caroline Lucas

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 5 - Charge and main rate for financial year 2024 (18 Ebr 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...from existing fossil fuel infrastructure already exceed the remaining carbon budget for 1.5°. The bottom line is that our climate simply cannot take any new oil and gas licences. As I have said time and again, new licences would also fail to deliver energy security. With the oil and gas sold on global markets to the highest bidder, they will not bring down bills in the UK and will...

Points of Order (18 Ebr 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...Under-Secretary of State for Energy Security and Net Zero, the hon. Member for West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine (Andrew Bowie) claimed that the Scottish Green party Minister Patrick Harvie had said: “oil and gas workers in Aberdeen should simply get on their bikes and look for other jobs”. I have confirmed with Mr Harvie that he never said that or anything like it. Through you, Madam...

Powering Up Britain (30 Maw 2023)

Caroline Lucas: Just a week ago, the UN Secretary-General said we needed a “quantum leap” when it comes to climate action. This Government have laboured and, frankly, brought forth a mouse. There is no new funding, no street-by-street home insulation plan, no mandatory rooftop solar and no unblocking of onshore wind. Instead, Ministers are gambling with technologies that are slow and costly at best, and...

Solar Rooftop Installations (22 Maw 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...for consumer-scale systems to meet the Government’s own target. Why are the Government setting their face against all the arguments that have been amassed about making solar mandatory? He has not said why he is against doing that. As well as having this debate just now, I wonder whether he would be prepared to meet me in the coming weeks so that we can get to the bottom of why the...

Solar Rooftop Installations (22 Maw 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...going to be a mandatory requirement, they would be able to gear up for it. As I say, the British public are behind this idea—no wonder when, as the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) has said, such a policy would save homeowners money. The figures that I have are that they would save between £974 and £1,151 a year on average on their energy bills. Solar Energy UK has found that...

Bee-killing Pesticides — [Caroline Nokes in the Chair] ( 1 Chw 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...name just a few. Now we have the so-called emergency approval in England of this banned pesticide—a type of neonicotinoid —for the third year in a row. It is a poison so powerful that some have said that a single teaspoon is enough to kill 1.25 billion bees. It has been said that neonics affect the central nervous system of insects and bees’ ability to forage and navigate. A recent...

Bee-killing Pesticides — [Caroline Nokes in the Chair] ( 1 Chw 2023)

Caroline Lucas: .... Brighton also has lots of lovely bee-friendly verges and so forth. Are we not just asking the Government to implement their own approach? Yesterday in their environmental improvement plan, they said that they wanted to put nature friendliness at the heart of all their policies. How is that coherent with the decision taken a few days ago? If the Government want to be consistent, they need...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: New Clause 1 - “Assimilated law” (18 Ion 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...that those of us who oppose the Bill are opposing it for some kind of ideological reason. I draw her attention to the words of the chair of the Office for Environmental Protection, who herself said: “Worryingly, the Bill does not offer any safety net, there is no requirement to maintain existing levels of environmental protection”. Not only that, there is actually a requirement not to...

Fossil Fuels and Cost of Living Increases — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (11 Ion 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...particularly as they affect our constituents. On energy efficiency, we know it is win, win, win. It gets people’s fuel bills down, addresses the climate emergency, creates jobs and, as many have said, it would also solve many of the health problems faced by people living in cold and damp homes. I hope the Minister will take away serious acknowledgement of the fact that the Government...

Fossil Fuels and Cost of Living Increases — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (11 Ion 2023)

Caroline Lucas: Several of us around the Chamber have said that the vast majority of the energy extracted from Rosebank is for export, so will the Minister stop pretending that it will somehow address any of the crises that we face in the UK? He has painted a picture suggesting that none of us on this side of the Chamber has talked about the demand side. The vast majority of what all of us have been talking...

Fossil Fuels and Cost of Living Increases — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (11 Ion 2023)

Caroline Lucas: I thank the hon. Lady for her intervention, and she will not be surprised that I entirely agree that fossil fuel subsidies should go. Indeed, that has been said at several of the big climate global conferences—the conferences of the parties. There is supposed to be an agreement on getting rid of the subsidies, but we are certainly not leading by example, sadly. I want to speak about...

Fossil Fuels and Cost of Living Increases — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (11 Ion 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...equivalent of running 58 coal-fired power stations for a year. It is estimated that if it is developed, its owners would receive more than £500 million of taxpayer subsidies, as the hon. Lady said, thanks to the investment allowance—the gas and oil giveaway—in the energy profits levy. If that £500 million were not used for those subsidies—subsidies to burn our planet more—it...

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...

Cop27 (21 Tach 2022)

Caroline Lucas: ...UK’s presidency is ending and nobody in Cabinet appears to be leading? Do we not need a special prime ministerial envoy? Lastly, in his statement on 9 November about COP27, the Prime Minister said: “With the Egyptian President, I raised the case of the British-Egyptian citizen Alaa Abd el-Fattah.”—[Official Report, 9 November 2022; Vol. 722, c. 260.] Alaa has faced intimidation,...

Autumn Statement (17 Tach 2022)

Caroline Lucas: The Chancellor said that he would be honest about the challenges we face, so it is frankly extraordinary that he could speak for almost an hour without once acknowledging the economic catastrophe of Brexit. According to the OBR, it will slash productivity by 4%; it has delivered a 15% drop in trade; there will be a 14% drop in investment; it will increase food prices by 6%; and it will...

Treasury: Topical Questions (15 Tach 2022)

Caroline Lucas: In a letter to the Chancellor last week, Lord Deben, the chair of the Climate Change Committee, said clearly that demand reduction is “now the biggest gap” in UK energy policy. Will Thursday’s autumn statement include an emergency investment of at least £3.6 billion over the course of this Parliament, so we can finally roll out the long-awaited and very overdue home insulation...

Cop27 ( 9 Tach 2022)

Caroline Lucas: The Prime Minister just said how important it is to keep our promises on climate finance, and I agree. Will he explain why he does not seem to agree with himself? His Government have not kept their climate promises. He has not delivered the $300 million that we still owe to the green climate and adaptation funds—when will we see that? Will he ensure that all new climate finance is new and...

Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill: New Clause 1 - The Genetic Technology Authority (31 Hyd 2022)

Caroline Lucas: It is a pleasure to follow the important speech by the right hon. Member for North Thanet (Sir Roger Gale), with which I agreed. As I said on Second Reading, this is a flawed Bill; it is unclear and it is not robust, and legal experts have said that it is staggeringly imprecise. Nothing that has happened since Second Reading has caused me to change my mind, so I have tabled a number of...

Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 (Amendment) Bill (28 Hyd 2022)

Caroline Lucas: ...contributed to the establishment of our treasured national parks under the National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act 1949. As Benny Rothman, one of the key organisers of that trespass, said during his trial at the Derby assizes: “we ramblers, after a hard week’s work, in smoky towns and cities, go out rambling for relaxation and fresh air. And we find the finest rambling country...

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...
