Economic Update (11 Ion 2021)

Caroline Lucas: The Chancellor said earlier that there is “unity of purpose” across this House. One area where it is clear there is unity with everybody except for him is that more support is needed for the excluded. It frankly beggars belief that he has yet again come to this House with nothing to announce for them, so I urge him to urgently look at the directors income support scheme for directors of...

Spending Review 2020 and OBR Forecast (25 Tach 2020)

Caroline Lucas: The Chancellor speaks of a fiscal emergency, but said not a word today about the climate and nature emergencies. There is a real risk that any green steps will be fatally undermined by the reckless pursuit of business-as-usual, environmentally destructive spending, such as the £27 billion road-building programme. He has said that there can be no lasting prosperity for people if we do not...

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...

Agriculture Bill: Clause 4 - Multi-annual financial assistance plans (12 Hyd 2020)

Caroline Lucas: Until the last speech, I was going to say how lovely it was to feel a common view coming from the Government and Opposition Benches. Let me just say why I think the last speaker was wrong. He said that if we adopted Lords amendment 16, for example, we would be imposing standards on developing countries that they could not reach. In fact, the EU has all sorts of arrangements with poorer...

Agriculture Bill: Clause 4 - Multi-annual financial assistance plans (12 Hyd 2020)

Caroline Lucas: .... It is perfectly clear that it would be possible for the Government to bring forward regulations to specify exactly the minimum distances. It is no coincidence that Lord Randall himself has said how important it is that this amendment is passed to protect human health. That is what we need to do. The Government could go away and design the regulations, but this is the overarching...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: New Clause 4 - Objectives and general functions (29 Med 2020)

Caroline Lucas: ...Strategy, the hon. Member for Sutton and Cheam (Paul Scully), earlier this afternoon, and the Minister of State, Cabinet Office, the hon. Member for Norwich North (Chloe Smith), last week, said that the UK Government have a determination to see climate and environmental goals achieved. Well, I am very glad to hear that, but it makes me even more perplexed that they are not willing to...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 1 - Purpose of Part 1 (22 Med 2020)

Caroline Lucas: ...to legislate ambitiously, progressively and, indeed, effectively to protect the environment. As it stands, the Bill allows market access principles to trump the environment, risking, as others have said, a race to the bottom and stagnant, if not actually diminishing, environmental standards. To date, the UK Government and the devolved Administrations have been aligned behind a common...

Support for Self-employed and Freelance Workers (17 Med 2020)

Caroline Lucas: ...crucial role that the self-employed play in our economy. No, they do not, otherwise she would not be suggesting that the self-employed just take more loans or they just have universal credit. She said that the Government have not forgotten them. The impression that has been left with people all around the country is that the Government have forgotten them. She says that the Government have...

Support for Self-employed and Freelance Workers (17 Med 2020)

Caroline Lucas: ...way to start to put things right and a universal basic income delivered via a welfare system that lifts everybody up would be a key cornerstone of that. In conclusion, on Tuesday the Chancellor said he had “not hesitated to act in creative and effective ways to support jobs and employment,”—[Official Report, 15 September 2020; Vol. 680, c. 160]— and promised he would continue to...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 46 - Power to provide financial assistance for economic development etc (16 Med 2020)

Caroline Lucas: I am pleased to follow the right hon. Member for Preseli Pembrokeshire (Stephen Crabb) because I want to disagree very strongly with many of the things he said, but one of the points that he made was that opposition to the Bill is about our views on Brexit. I want to say loudly and clearly that opposition to the Bill has actually got nothing to do with our views on Brexit and everything to...

China (20 Gor 2020)

Caroline Lucas: I welcome the Government’s new measures on Hong Kong, but I want to press the Foreign Secretary on the gross human rights abuses in Xinjiang. We said that never again would the world stand by while a state set out to eliminate an entire culture, yet it is happening again. As well as accelerating the Magnitsky sanctions on Chinese officials, will he accept that giving out investment...

Finance Bill: New Clause 28 - Review of impact of Act on the environment ( 1 Gor 2020)

Caroline Lucas: ...and that we should be creating the equivalent of another 100% reduction of UK emissions overseas through climate finance to the global south. That is what we need to be aiming for. As others have said many times this afternoon, we are already off track to meet our fourth and fifth carbon budgets, which themselves are not even strong enough to get us to net zero by 2050. That is how vast...

Agriculture Bill: Import of agricultural goods after IP completion day (13 Mai 2020)

Caroline Lucas: ...up. It would also place a duty on the Secretary of State to publish interim emission-reduction targets, as well as policies to ensure that those targets are met. The Committee on Climate Change has said that “strengthening the regulatory baseline” is an essential step that the Government must urgently deploy to meet climate goals, so I hope the Government will support not just specific...

Coronavirus Bill (23 Maw 2020)

Caroline Lucas: ...Secretary of State, the hon. Member for Leicester South (Jonathan Ashworth), on that—and, crucially, with the economic security that will make that possible. I echo everything that others have said about the importance of underpinning the livelihoods of those who are self-employed, and crucially—I make no apology for repeating this—we need a much, much clearer, more comprehensive,...

Coronavirus Bill (23 Maw 2020)

Caroline Lucas: ...house to house, and we need them in different languages so that different communities can hear this. The hon. Gentleman’s point about a strict lockdown is well made, but I echo what others have said about the importance of guaranteeing economic security to make it much more possible for people to cope with that lockdown, particularly the self-employed who are now struggling so much....

Innovation in Hospital Design: Local Housing Allowance: Homeless Young People — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] ( 4 Chw 2020)

Caroline Lucas: ...of homelessness is acute. Vulnerable young people are being let down, left to sleep on sofas, in hostels and on our pavements, cold, frightened and desperately unsafe. The Minister himself has said, in answers to questions in the House, that the causes of homelessness are numerous, varied and complex. He is right. In the short time we have today, I will address the specific problems caused...

Innovation in Hospital Design: Climate Justice — [Sir Charles Walker in the Chair.] ( 4 Chw 2020)

Caroline Lucas: ...we would need to be net negative, drawing down more than half of our 1990 level of emissions. To be absolutely clear, however politically expedient a 2050 net zero target might be, it cannot be said to be just. It will further exacerbate the inequalities that climate change presents and push the burden once again on those who have done least to cause it. A second consideration when it...

Prevent Programme (22 Ion 2020)

Caroline Lucas: ...was an error of judgment, but it is also part of a pattern. Footage of my arrest for peaceful protest against fracking was used in Prevent training sessions back in 2015. In 2016, the Home Office said that support for anti-fracking was not an indicator of vulnerability to extremism, but years later, evidence shows that four police forces were still identifying anti-fracking as a perceived...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill ( 9 Ion 2020)

Caroline Lucas: ...Speaker, on your restoration to the Chair. I am pleased to speak after the new hon. Member for Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner (David Simmonds). I wish I could say that I agreed with more of what he said. I do not for a moment doubt his personal commitment to refugee children, as I hope he will not doubt my own, but I think we have very different solutions to how we would address their...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill: Interpretation ( 8 Ion 2020)

Caroline Lucas: The hon. Lady will not be surprised that I completely agree with her. She will know that the Prime Minister has said that he wants to bring forward what he has called the most ambitious environmental programme of any country in the world. That being the case, does she share my bewilderment that Ministers could even conceive of not supporting the new clause? What would they have to fear from...
