Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Air Pollution (17 Mar 2016)

Rory Stewart: The current objective is to focus on nitrogen dioxide thresholds and ensure that we reduce ambient air quality rates below 40 micrograms per cubic metre. Heathrow is a totally separate question that must be assessed independently by the Environment Agency and our air quality monitors, to see whether ambient air quality targets are met.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Health (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill: Consideration Stage (22 Feb 2016)

John McCallister: I am grateful to the Chair of the Health Committee for that intervention. There is a small volume, in cubic metres, of air in a car. Even with the windows open, smoke simply does not clear. That is where the risk comes from. I come back to the point that the big debate on the amendments is about what will be most effective. I would have preferred the Executive to table their own...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Emissions Standards: Fines (4 Feb 2016)

Rory Stewart: Air quality has also improved here. However, we will work very closely with individual local authorities on clean air zones to meet the level in the ambient air quality directive of 40 micrograms per cubic metre.

Written Answers — Department for Energy and Climate Change: Fracking (21 Jan 2016)

Andrea Leadsom: ...,000 MW coal-fired power plant for 12 hours. In order to carry out hydraulic fracturing activities, an operator is required to seek an abstraction permit from the Environment Agency if more than 20 cubic metres per day of water is to be abstracted from surface or groundwater bodies. If water is instead sourced from a mains supply, the water company will need to ensure it can still meet the...

Scottish Parliament: Plantation Forestry (Water Absorption) (21 Jan 2016)

Aileen McLeod: ...the Highlands has the capacity to absorb approximately 7,000m3 of rainfall. That means that the plantation forests in the Highlands will have an annual absorption rate of approximately 1.4 billion cubic metres of water.

Written Answers — Department for Energy and Climate Change: Natural Gas: Storage (18 Jan 2016)

Andrea Leadsom: ...physical system constraints and market processes mean storage could only be one part of the overall gas mix on any winter’s day. Total gas infrastructure in GB can currently deliver around 700 million cubic meters a day, which is more than double average winter daily demand. Average winter demand is 290 million cubic meters a day and while storage amounts fluctuate, it is currently...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Air Pollution (15 Dec 2015)

Adam Afriyie: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what assessment her Department has made of current progress against the air quality target of 40 microgrammes of NO2 per cubic metre; and whether the Government expects to meet that target.

Low Emission Zones (25 Nov 2015)

Rory Stewart: ...includes sources of emissions, a climate model, including how the wind moves things around, and the road network, and out of that we attempt to calculate nationally the number of micrograms per cubic metre. As pointed out by the shadow Minister and my hon. Friend the Member for Bath, local situations will always arise in which things are being captured that may not be captured by the...

Arctic Committee Report — Motion to Take Note (3 Nov 2015)

Lord Moynihan: ...—the noble Lord, Lord Oxburgh, has just made the same point. The Arctic is exceptionally diverse: although parts are covered by ice, other Arctic oil and gas developments, such as the huge 193 billion cubic metre SnÝvhit field in the Barents Sea, where the Gulf Stream keeps the hostile conditions free of ice all year round, pose very different challenges. These challenges are...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Energy and Climate Change: Shale Gas and Oil Policy (16 Sep 2015)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: ...the full scale of the UK’s shale resources nor how much can be extracted technically or economically. ∑ The British Geological Survey estimates the shale gas resource in the Bowland-Hodder basin under Northern England could be 1300 trillion cubic feet (tcf)[6], compared to current UK annual gas consumption of around 2.5 tcf[7]. The industry need to test how much of this gas in...

Written Answers — Department for Energy and Climate Change: Fracking (2 Jul 2015)

Andrea Leadsom: ...to the economic minimum. In the Strategic Environmental Assessment carried out for the 14th onshore licensing round, the level of flaring for unconventional oil and gas was assessed to be 500,000 cubic meters of methane per fractured exploration well.

[Mr George Howarth in the Chair] — Shale Gas (30 Jun 2015)

Alan Whitehead: ...looks at the consequences of a serious industry. My concern is that that document, a strategic assessment produced by AMEC a little while ago, estimates the output from shale gas wells to be 3.2 billion cubic feet per well over 20 years. As an average output for wells in the UK, that would equate to the best level ever obtained in any well in north America. Conditions for shale gas in the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Reservoirs Bill: Final Stage (24 Jun 2015)

Michelle O'Neill: ...for their contribution to the debates on the Bill and for the proposed amendments at Consideration Stage. The first amendment proposed to increase the threshold for controlled reservoirs from 10,000 cubic metres to 25,000 cubic metres. While that was ultimately not adopted, it did provide a very useful and healthy debate on the matter. For the record, it is worth noting that schedule 4...

Philip Dunne: .... The table below sets out the figures for estimated and actual fuel usage by the Royal Navy in support of maritime tasking over the last five years: Calendar Year Estimated Fuel Use (in Cubic Meters) Actual Fuel Use (in Cubic Meters) 2010 265,954 256,254 2011 232,884 221,418 2012 233,872 188,387 2013 214,771 192,104 2014 191,358 176,267

Scottish Parliament: Kinghorn Lifeboat Station (50th Anniversary) (23 Jun 2015)

Stewart Stevenson: ...quality of support. Claire Baker mentioned the respect the water campaign. It is as well to remind ourselves that the sea is a cruel mistress and can be very dangerous. I do not know how many members are aware that a cubic metre of water weighs a tonne. Therefore, it is not a trivial matter when water comes in waves. That is not like the water in the bath that we feel is comfortable and...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Rivers (22 Jun 2015)

Rory Stewart: ..., and additional investment is proposed to secure further improvements. The Environment Agency has changed 46 abstraction licences for ten chalk streams across England. These returned 9.4 million cubic metres year of water back to chalk streams and removed the risk of another 1.6 million cubic metres per year being taken. This is equivalent to the average annual domestic water use of...

Food Waste — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (11 Jun 2015)

Angela Smith: ...usage or, to put it another way, the amount of carbon produced by some 7 million cars. Additionally, it is estimated that 70% of all water consumption is used in food production, which means that in the UK alone some 5 million cubic metres of water a year is used in producing foodstuffs, a proportion of which is wasted unnecessarily. It is therefore clear and well understood that producing...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Reservoirs Bill: Consideration Stage (28 Apr 2015)

Michelle O'Neill: ...resulting from dam failure. The preliminary flood risk assessment identified that thousands of people are at potential risk from dam failure in the North from reservoirs capable of holding 10,000 cubic metres or more. Anecdotal evidence also suggested that many reservoir managers were not aware of their responsibility to arrange for regular inspections and maintenance of these ageing...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Reservoirs Bill: Consideration Stage (28 Apr 2015)

Paul Girvan: ...provision made if this goes through and work needs to be undertaken on some of the reservoirs, dams or ponds, whatever you want to call them. The rationale for an increase in the volume from 10,000 cubic metres, as proposed by the officials, to 25,000 is helpful, maybe not to everybody but to those whom it removes from what I believe is a draconian system that would give them an awful lot...
