Aerospace Industry — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (2 September 2014)

Peter Luff: ...the various mechanisms being established are sufficiently integrated and comprehensive. The response that has developed and that is spelled out in the AGP’s strategy is built around a variety of mechanisms. It rightly identifies areas of UK competitive advantage—wings, engines, aerostructures and advanced systems—and emphasises the importance of reinforcing that success....

Economy: Manufacturing — Motion to Take Note (3 July 2014)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: ...significant successes. As my noble friend Lady Wilcox said, we have announced a co-investment of 2 billion over seven years for the Aerospace Technology Institute to keep the UK at the leading edge, not only on wings—if noble Lords will excuse the pun—but also on engines, aerostructures and advanced systems. Together with the automotive industry we are investing 1...

[Mr Joe Benton in the Chair] — Supporting the Creative Economy (13 February 2014)

Edward Vaizey: ...effectively by rights holders to seek and obtain injunctions against some of the biggest sites that exist for the sole purpose of distributing infringing material. We also work with City of London police and credit card companies to take down payment sites, and we have one of the most advanced systems, if not the most advanced system, working with the advertising industry to ensure that...

[Mr Jim Hood in the Chair] — Royal Navy Ships (3 December 2013)

Tobias Ellwood: ...aircraft carriers and torpedoes. With the technology coming online today, tomorrow’s battles—wherever they are—will be fought not just by those in the theatre of war, but, arguably, by a similar number of operators hundreds of miles from the battlefield, as unmanned warfare becomes the norm. The advanced systems coming online will transform the ability of all three...

Written Ministerial Statements — House of Lords: Industrial Strategy (18 March 2013)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: ...global competition and changes in technology. It is based on ensuring that the UK has the capabilities to be at the leading edge of the design, development and production of wings, engines, aerostructures and advanced systems. The aerospace sector employs 230,000 people across the UK. It is a key part of our advanced manufacturing base providing work for around 3,000 companies of all...

Written Ministerial Statements — Business, Innovation and Skills: Industrial Strategy (18 March 2013)

Vincent Cable: ...of increasing global competition and changes in technology. It is based on ensuring that the UK has the capabilities to be at the leading edge of the design, development and production of wings, engines, aerostructures and advanced systems. The aerospace sector employs 230,000 people across the UK. It is a key part of our advanced manufacturing base providing work for around 3,000...

Aerospace Industry — [Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] (12 September 2012)

Michael Fallon: ...provides directly more than 100,000 highly skilled and high-paid jobs, and many more than that indirectly. At present we are a world leader in the design and manufacture of large aircraft wings and components, aero-engines and advanced systems, such as landing gear. These are the most complex parts of any aircraft. The UK is well placed to pick up a significant share of the huge growth...

Energy Bill [HL]: Second Reading (22 December 2010)

Lord Hunt of Chesterton: ...from sea water at $200 a kilo, compared to $80 a kilo from mining, which may be revolutionary. However, even if you do that, you will still have waste. Therefore, in China there are also very advanced systems of thinking about hybrid methods of fusion and fission to deal with the waste. In 20 years the technology will certainly change in China, which is an important part of looking...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Executive Question Time — General Questions: Unemployment (Mid Scotland and Fife) (5 May 2010)

Keith Brown: In Fife, PACE activity has helped 434 employees, who were supported through intervention by Advanced Systems, the Co-op Group, Wincanton, Wallaces Express, Torith, Thomas Mitchell Homes, Ethel Austin, Fife Council and Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs. There is a great deal of work going on, but I am happy to look at the issue of whether people are sufficiently aware. John Park might be aware...

Energy: White Paper (12 July 2007)

Lord Hunt of Chesterton: ...of Energy colleagues are thinking on those timescales and longer. India, China and Russia are also thinking on these very long times. They are thinking not only of conventional nuclear, but of more advanced systems using, for example, fusion and fission, reprocessing uranium and using the vast reserves of thorium, which could also be used in more advanced nuclear technologies. I disagree...

Crime: Reoffending (1 February 2007)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: ...more places are required. Arrangements for sex offenders have also come under scrutiny during the past few weeks, and I echo the words of the Prime Minister in saying that we have one of the most advanced systems in the world for monitoring and managing dangerous offenders, and those considered to present the greatest risk to the public will come increasingly under the multi-agency public...

Scottish Parliament: Airdrie-Bathgate Railway and Linked Improvements Bill: Preliminary Stage (23 November 2006)

Robin Harper: ...if we spent money on installing the most advanced signalling systems, such as the ones in France? They are much safer and more foolproof than the semi-mechanical systems that we use. Thanks to advanced systems, underground trains in London are operated at two-minute intervals.

Internal Market in Services (EUC Report) (14 October 2005)

Lord Giddens: ...it states, seemingly based on an odd remark by the Minister for Europe, that the European social model is so vague a notion that there is not much point in using it. This is completely false. The European social model is a shorthand term for the advanced systems of welfare which the most developed countries in Europe have established and which provide for not only a market-based society...

Orders of the Day — Identity Cards Bill (28 June 2005)

Tobias Ellwood: ...average price of those cards, however, is not 1,900 but, in the case of Sweden, €15 or 20. The price is low because the system is extremely simple. The middle east is the only place to have more advanced systems, which aim to track people coming in and out of the area. That is the problem with the Bill—as long as we have porous borders we cannot take full advantage...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (24 May 2005)

Lord Hunt of Chesterton: ...nuclear systems that must deal comprehensively with nuclear fusion and fission and with the problems of nuclear waste. However, it is disappointing that the UK is not participating in the international meetings on these advanced systems. The United States Department of Energy is thinking about nuclear energy over the next 40 to 50 years and is working with colleagues from Russia and the...

Written Answers — Deputy Prime Minister: Fire Control Rooms (10 January 2005)

Mr Nick Raynsford: ...systems mobilising and resource management system, Graphical Information Systems (GIS) and gazetteer, and an automatic vehicle location system, for each Regional Control Centres (RCC). The most advanced systems in existing fire and rescue control rooms have formed the basis for the requirements. We are taking the best features of these and other systems and putting them together to create...

Eurofighter Typhoon (12 November 2003)

Mr Adam Ingram: .... Typhoon is in full-scale production. It is here to stay. The fact that we are identifying and resolving problems as they arise underlines the measured and prudent approach we adopt for introducing new advanced systems into service. Others clearly recognise the aircraft's merits. Austria has ordered 18, and will join the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and Spain as a member of the Typhoon...

National Air Traffic Services (29 March 2001)

Lord Macdonald of Tradeston: ...investment which will give them new equipment. I anticipate that if we have an accelerated pace of technology, under the new system Swanwick will be the first to benefit from it. These days advanced systems like Swanwick are subject to very regular upgrading and replacement, and often the process is a very organic one. I for one am pleased that the Airline Group stands ready to enhance the...

The London and Frankfurt Stock Exchanges (24 May 2000)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: ...the two systems are likely to be rather similar. It has been reported that Xetra has been out of action quite a lot in the recent past, including last week. Both systems are old, and faster and more advanced systems are becoming available. This time I hope that the right choice has, at last, been made but yet another change will be extremely expensive for the small brokers, even if it is...

Transport Safety (20 October 1999)

Mr John Heppell: ...will take longer to develop than TPWS. We cannot wait for those systems to be developed. Instead, we must act now and introduce available protection systems. We must then try to ensure that more advanced systems are introduced as they are developed, and as it becomes apparent that they will work. Clearly we do not want to spend public money on things that do not work. The Government's...
