– in the House of Commons at 1:33 pm on 26th February 2020.
LINK to read debate in full

Andrew Selous The Second Church Estates Commissioner:
What action are the Government taking to ensure that carbon offsetting is permanent and long-lasting? Greenhouse gases can be in the atmosphere in some cases for hundreds of years, and there is a danger that carbon offsetting could be only temporary, so will the Government look at that point and come forward with proposals on it?

George Eustice The Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
My hon. Friend makes an important point. The Bill contains a number of measures relating to a biodiversity net gain. It includes, for instance, a provision on conservation covenants, which will enable a landowner entering into an agreement to plant woodland, for instance, to have a covenant on that land as part of an agreement that would prevent it from subsequently being scrapped.
