An Indian summer has certainly lived up to its reputation, with temperatures around the 30-degree mark. Farmers could have done with this weather over the last month. Anyway, it was a lovely morning to head out into the park for my run before cycling to the Commons. With so many roads under repair and building works everywhere you look, cycling really is the only way to get around. Two things attracted my attention today. The first was a Statement immigration minister Robert Jenrick made about illegal migration. The second was the debate on the Energy Bill, which had come from the Lords. As I've repeatedly said, I have sympathy for the Government, dealing as it is with thousands of illegal migrants crossing the Channel in small boats. I do not agree, however, that putting them on a barge in a highly restricted port is the right answer, nor do the majority of my constituents. At the moment there are no migrants on the barge as the few that were there were taken off as a precaution following the discovery of the Legionella bacteria. We now await the result of some tests. I raised this issue with the minister during his Statement and my question and the reply I received are on the website. With other commitments in place, I had to rejig my diary in quick time to prepare as best I could for the debate on the Energy Bill. I was very concerned by this Bill and its direction of travel, although its aims are laudable. The problem, as I tried to explain in the four minutes we'd been given, is the Climate Change Act 2008, which Ed Miliband pushed through parliament. A tiny number of MPs did not back it. The target to cut emissions was raised to 100 per cent by 2050 by the then Prime Minister Theresa May in 2019. There was no debate and this ambitious target, which is unachievable without impoverishing us, was set. Now an influential quango called the Climate Change Committee, which oversees our march to Net Zero, is advising the Government on five-year carbon budgets, which get tougher and tougher and cannot be changed by an incoming government, which makes a mockery of our democracy. They are also vulnerable to legal challenge. We are now on our fourth carbon budget, with government policy suitably aimed at supporting it. There are already moves to ban petrol cars and gas boilers and, in a rather sinister part of the Bill, home owners could face fines of up to £15,000, or a year in jail, for not adhering to new performance regulations. None of these things are remotely Conservative and I had no hesitation in voting against the Bill. My short speech is on the website. The debate ended at 1900. Regrettably the Bill went through on Third Reading. What we need to do, and urgently, is repeal the Climate Change Act so that our move to decarbonise does not impoverish us, as I've said, and enables the country to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels in a more sensible and pragmatic way. In other news, the PM has cracked under pressure from a number of our backbenchers to relax planning permission for onshore wind farms in England. Mr Sunak had promised NOT to relax the onshore ban. The leader of Birmingham City Council insisted vital services would be protected as the authority declared itself effectively bankrupt. I wonder how many other councils face a similar issue. Stricken high street retailer Wilko confirmed 1,332 workers would be made redundant and 52 stores would close. And Jorge Vilda, Spain's Women's World Cup-winning head coach, was sacked amid the ongoing Luis Rubiales scandal.
