Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Chw 2019)

Caroline Lucas: I want to be a little bit helpful. In response to the right hon. Member for Wolverhampton South East (Mr McFadden), the Minister basically said that he did not see any difference between what President Macron has said and what the Prime Minister said yesterday. There is a huge difference. The Prime Minister said yesterday that she would use an extension for more dither, delay, faffing and...

Business of the House: Badger Cull (25 Hyd 2012)

Caroline Lucas: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. I think that it is worth reading what Lord Krebs said in the House of Lords, because it is exactly the point the hon. Gentleman identifies. He said that “the long-term, large-scale culling of badgers is estimated to reduce the incidence of TB in cattle by 16% after nine years. In other words, 84% of the problem is still there. To...

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...

Defence Estate: Exiting the EU and Workers’ Rights ( 7 Tach 2016)

Caroline Lucas: The Secretary of State just said that he would guarantee all protections. Will he absolutely confirm that that is going ahead of what the Government have said in the past—that it would only be “wherever practical”? Will he also rule out the idea of the great repeal Bill having a sunset clause that would mean that all EU law expired unless it had been specifically endorsed anew by the...

Delegated Legislation: Employment and Training (27 Ebr 2022)

Caroline Lucas: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. At Prime Minister’s questions today, I said that 56 MPs were “under investigation” over allegations of sexual misconduct. I should like to correct the record. I realise now that I should have said that according to a report in The Sunday Times 56 MPs are facing claims. There is a difference between a complaint being investigated and an...

Informal European Council: Parliamentary oversight of negotiations ( 6 Chw 2017)

Caroline Lucas: I do wish that the hon. Gentleman would not rewrite history. I have some lovely quotes here. The present Foreign Secretary said: “I’d vote to stay in the single market. I’m in favour of the single market.” The right hon. Member for North Shropshire (Mr Paterson) said: “Only a madman would actually leave the market”. That one speaks for itself. Arron Banks stated: “Increasingly...

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...

[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — Future of CDC (14 Gor 2011)

Caroline Lucas: I am sorry to delay the Secretary of State on this issue, but I want to return to the point raised by the hon. Member for Birmingham, Northfield (Richard Burden). The Secretary of State said that the figure of 50% was not arbitrary, but he then said that the criteria were that that figure “feels right”, which does sound arbitrary. Will the Secretary of State be clearer about the criteria...

Estimates Day — [2nd Allotted Day] — Supplementary Estimates 2013-14 — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Managing Flood Risk ( 3 Maw 2014)

Caroline Lucas: Does the hon. Lady recognise that there is incoherence at the heart of the Government’s policy on climate change and flooding? The Prime Minister said that money was no object when it came to the relief effort to clear up after floods, but less than two weeks later he was handing huge new subsidies to the fossil fuel industry; when those fossil fuels are burned, extreme weather events,...

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...

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...

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...

Ukraine (28 Maw 2022)

Caroline Lucas: In an FCDO press release last week, the Foreign Secretary said that Russian intelligence services have targeted UK national infrastructure in what she called a “calculated and dangerous” hacking campaign and that Putin is sowing “division and confusion among allies.” She rightly said, in that press release, that she “will not tolerate it”, so will she reassure the House that she...

Treasury: Net Zero Emissions and Green Investment ( 7 Med 2021)

Caroline Lucas: ...action on the climate crisis. He replied that the Treasury has committed £12 billion of new money to the 10-point plan, but even that is not true, as he knows, and the President of COP26 has said that actually only a paltry £4 billion is new money. When will the Treasury start committing serious money to the green transition, in the region of the £85 billion that the TUC has said is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Bovine TB and Badger Control (23 Hyd 2012)

Caroline Lucas: The Secretary of State said that vaccination is only 60% or 70% effective, but is that not an awful lot more than 16% effective for the cull? Secondly, he said that a cattle vaccination and the DIVA test are years off, but that is not the case—that is not what scientists are telling us. Will he use the money that has so far been earmarked for the cull to bring those vaccines to market as...

Shale Gas Extraction (22 Med 2022)

Caroline Lucas: I must say that I am fascinated that the Secretary of State thinks that he knows more about the geology of the UK than the geologist who founded Cuadrilla, who said quite clearly that the UK is unsuited to widespread fracking. My question comes back to the issue of consent. The Prime Minister said that fracking will go ahead only in places where there is support from the local community. That...

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...

COP26: Limiting Global Temperature Rises (21 Hyd 2021)

Caroline Lucas: I could not thank the hon. Member more for his intervention. I think he has been reading my notes, because I was going to make exactly that point. The Prime Minister himself has said: “It is the biggest economies in the world that are causing the problem, while the smallest suffer the worst consequences.” Yet he has not grasped the implications of his own statement. As the hon. Member has...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 19 - Power to modify energy supply licences to require provision of information ( 9 Meh 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...result in some customers being asked to pay higher interest rates because they are perceived to be a greater credit risk, based on their record of paying energy bills. The Minister has previously said that the green deal will be available whether people own or rent, and as this is not like personal debt, personal credit ratings are not a factor. That is what the Minister has said in the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: EU Protocol on animal sentience (15 Tach 2017)

Caroline Lucas: ...are absolutely enshrined in law, so that they cannot be bargained or negotiated away in the interests of getting a better deal. The Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has said that he believes this gap should be closed. I very much welcome his support, because this is an important ethical and practical issue. It is of great significance to the UK’s ability to...
