(Western Morning News) A hereditary peer has questioned whether flatulence caused by the country’s high consumption of baked beans is adding to global warming.

Viscount Simon, 73, a Labour peer who has been a member of the House of Lords for more than 20 years, raised concerns about the “smelly emissions”.

His comments came as energy minister Baroness Verma answered questions in the Upper House on how the Government was tackling climate change.

Lord Simon said: “In a programme some months ago on the BBC it was stated that this country has the largest production of baked beans and the largest consumption of baked beans in the world.”

Instead of asking Lord Simon if he was stoned or losing his marbles, she said his question was different, and

But she added: “You do actually raise a very important point, which is we do need to moderate our behaviour.”

And by “we”, she means “you”, and by “moderate”, she means “by force of Government”.
