Austerity and the Environment - Dr Caroline Lucas MP

This year the Hansard Society and Political Studies Association are delighted to announce Dr Caroline Lucas MP as the speaker at our annual lecture, this year entitled Austerity and the Environment.

In May 2010 Dr Caroline Lucas MP became the first Green Party candidate ever elected to Parliament - only two years after becoming the Party's first leader. And since her election she has made a prolific contribution to debates in the House, tabling no less than 300 questions a year on topics as diverse as gender, nuclear disarmament, tax and, most notably, the environment. Her almost immediate membership of the Environmental Audit select committee has proved just as assiduous, with successive inquires and a strong focus on green investment and the economy. This year's PSA/ Hansard Society lecture, Austerity and the Environment, will subsequently provide an unmissable opportunity to gain a first-hand insight into a topic at the cutting-edge of politics today.
