Prime Minister: Engagements ( 1 Mai 2024)

Caroline Lucas: In February, the Foreign Secretary said that it would be difficult for a ground offensive on Rafah to avoid harming civilians and destroying homes, and just yesterday, the Deputy Foreign Secretary admitted that he was struggling to see how such an attack could be compliant with international humanitarian law. All the signs are that Netanyahu is about to defy the international community, and...

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...

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

Caroline Lucas: The Minister is being very generous in giving way. I am not the only person to have said that it should not be possible for rents to rise in these circumstances; the Government’s own White Paper said it only a short time ago. I wish that the Minister would address the point about the disincentive. If a tenant knows that by going to a tribunal they could end up with a higher rent than the...

Renters (Reform) Bill: New Clause 15 - Notices to quit by tenants under assured tenancies: timing (24 Ebr 2024)

Caroline Lucas: ...have the power to impose a higher rent than the one the tenant is appealing. That is frankly outrageous and goes directly against the promise made in the Secretary of State’s White Paper, which said: “We will prevent the Tribunal increasing rent beyond the amount landlords initially asked for when they proposed a rent increase.” Amendment 13 would simply make good that broken promise...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (18 Maw 2024)

Caroline Lucas: ...that Rwanda is safe is as dangerous as it is ridiculous. The Government cannot sign a quick treaty one week and legislate the next to make a country safe, when the highest court in the land has said just the opposite. The facts on the ground are what matter and these amendments say that the facts should be monitored. What kind of Government would oppose that? To conclude, I will vote to...

Offshore Petroleum Licensing Bill: Clause 1 - Duty to invite applications for offshore licences (20 Chw 2024)

Caroline Lucas: It is hard to know what more can be said about this farcical and unnecessary Bill. It feels as if we are running out of adjectives. Taking part in this debate, listening to the ridiculous heckles from the Government Front Bench, almost legitimises this desperate and dangerous attempt to create yet another culture war out of something as serious as the climate emergency, but I put on record my...

Offshore Petroleum Licensing Bill: Clause 1 - Duty to invite applications for offshore licences (20 Chw 2024)

Caroline Lucas: ...because we exploit oil and gas in the North sea, that somehow means that it is ours—that it gets used here, rather than being sold on global markets at international prices. So many of us have said that so many times in this Chamber, but it still does not seem to have penetrated. I rise to speak in support of my amendments that have been selected for debate: amendments 2, 3, 13 and 14....

Written Answers — Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: North Sea Oil: Shetland ( 8 Chw 2024)

Caroline Lucas: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy Security and Net Zero, with reference to the Answer of 24 October 2023 to Question 202952 on North Sea Oil: Shetland, on what evidential basis she said that Rosebank will be significantly less emissions-intensive than the current average of producing assets; and if she will make an estimate of the total lifespan emissions from this project.

Fossil Fuels: Lobbying (30 Ion 2024)

Caroline Lucas: ..., of course, why he would want to make it. I would simply say that there is concern around perceived influence as well as direct influence. I have no reason to doubt for a second what he has just said—I am sure that it is absolutely true—but at the same time, when people outside this place look at the facts that I have been laying out this evening, in a dispassionate way I hope, alarm...

Action Against Houthi Maritime Attacks (23 Ion 2024)

Caroline Lucas: ...will be disappointed at the Prime Minister’s failure to condemn the increasingly violent and extreme language by Netanyahu and his Ministers, and I invite him again to do so. The Prime Minister said 10 days ago that the airstrikes against Houthi targets would send a clear message. The Foreign Secretary said this morning that more strikes send the clearest message. Can the Prime Minister...

Offshore Petroleum Licensing Bill (22 Ion 2024)

Caroline Lucas: ...is frankly no more than a political stunt at home, yet at the same time a very dangerous signal to other countries abroad of a UK doubling down on the fossil fuel economy. The reality, as many have said, is that the Bill is entirely redundant, with even the North Sea Transition Authority expressing its “unanimous” view that it is not needed. As the Minister knows perfectly well, there...

Offshore Petroleum Licensing Bill (22 Ion 2024)

Caroline Lucas: ...and undermines global efforts to address the climate emergency by hampering diplomacy and legitimising extraction in other countries. As Lord Deben, former chair of the Climate Change Committee, said: “How can we ask other nations not to expand the fossil fuel production if we start doing it ourselves?” It is frankly a scandal that the UK is among just five countries in the global...

Clean Air (Human Rights) (17 Ion 2024)

Caroline Lucas: ...and it received cross-party support, including from Lord Randall of Uxbridge, a former environment adviser to the right hon. Member for Maidenhead (Mrs May) when she was Prime Minister. He said: “We have waited too long for proper clean air legislation…I urge the Minister to take this back and say that it is a golden opportunity to do something really wonderful. The Government could...

Defending the UK and Allies (15 Ion 2024)

Caroline Lucas: The Foreign Secretary said yesterday that the purpose of the air strikes in Yemen was to send a message, but the message that we intend to send is not necessarily the message that gets received. The message seems to have been sent to many in the region that the UK is intervening in the war very clearly on the side of Israel. What plans do the Government have to manage and contain the...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Rha 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...Obviously, Parliament can pass whatever laws it wants, but we have courts so that everyone, including this Government, acts with respect for the laws that Parliament has passed. As others have said, this Bill simply will not work. Its so-called deterrent is not a deterrent to someone fleeing torture or persecution, who has already put their life at risk by taking to one of the busiest...

Israel and Palestine — [Sir Mark Hendrick in the Chair] (11 Rha 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...of oppression and dispossession of and discrimination against the Palestinian people by the Israeli authorities, which are an unavoidable part of the context of this war. A lot has already been said about how to bring this conflict to a close. Decades of expert diplomacy has failed thus far to resolve this seemingly intractable conflict. In the past 15 years alone, there have been five...

Making Britain a Clean Energy Superpower ( 9 Tach 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...new production licences. However, as the Minister well knows, the NSTA was already holding annual licensing rounds—most recently in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. This was only paused in 2020 when it said that it would await the so-called climate compatibility checkpoint before opening further rounds. Now that the checkpoint is in operation, we can expect the NSTA to resume regular licensing...

Making Britain a Clean Energy Superpower ( 9 Tach 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...have pointed out in this Chamber that just because we extract oil and gas from the North sea does not mean that it gets used here. It gets sold on global markets to the highest bidders, as we have said 100 times. When it comes to annual licensing rounds, which the Secretary of State is flagging up, is it not the case that the North Sea Transition Authority was already licensing in 2016,...

Occupied Palestinian Territories: Humanitarian Situation ( 8 Tach 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ...medicine into Gaza, not least because critical infrastructure, such as roads and hospitals, needs to be mended first and that cannot happen if there are only humanitarian pauses. I know that he has said a lot this afternoon about the difference between pauses and a ceasefire, but he has not addressed explicitly the advice that we are hearing from humanitarian experts on the ground who say...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] ( 7 Tach 2023)

Caroline Lucas: ..., when he knows that that oil and gas is sold on international markets to the highest bidder. He pretends that it will get people’s bills down, yet his own Secretary of State for Energy has said that it will not. When will he stop governing by gimmick, and when will he start actually rolling out the home insulation programme that will get people’s bills down?
