I have a problem with the Labour party’s motion, partly...

Affordable Homes Bill (5 September 2014)

Andrew George: ...be no savings for the Government in any case. If the purpose of Government policy is to ensure the proper, efficient and effective use of the social housing resource with no under-occupation, so that every cubic centimetre of every social property is fully occupied, there will be no saving in housing benefit. My point is that the policy is putting pressure on vulnerable people and they are...

The reserves equate to 47 years of total UK gas consumption or 90 years of the...

Scottish Parliament: Energy and Climate Change (7 May 2014)

Jamie McGrigor: ...of the political events that have involved Russia in the past few months. We cannot ignore the fact that, 10 years ago, the UK was a net exporter of gas, whereas now we have to import billions of cubic tonnes of gas each year to meet demand.

To answer a question from the noble Lord, Lord Whitty, if operators want to extract water directly from local water sources for operational purposes and that exceeds 20 cubic metres a day, they would need a water abstraction licence from the Environment Agency.
