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...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Navy: Fuels (24 Jun 2015)

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

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...

Commercial Waste Recycling (Eccles) (11 Feb 2015)

Dan Rogerson: ...this financial year. It stopped 116 of the 225 new illegal waste sites found since 1 April in under 90 days, and agency action has resulted in 86 illegal waste sites being cleared, with waste totalling 133,310 cubic metres diverted into the legitimate industry. We want to do more, however. We will consult shortly on strengthening further Environment Agency enforcement powers, including...

Infrastructure Bill [HL] — Commons Amendments (9 Feb 2015)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: ...Lord Truscott has lots of experience, but I must admit that I was surprised by his analysis. Even if we are sceptical, it was a British geological survey, after all, which identified 1,300 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. If we take only 10% of that as capable of being extracted, which is a reasonably modest assessment, that is something like 40 years’ supply of the gas that we...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: High Speed 2 Railway Line (28 Jan 2015)

Claire Perry: ...for an extra 20 West Coast Main Line freight paths per day. Furthermore, the construction itself will provide significant business opportunities, as preliminary analysis suggests that five million cubic metres of excavated material will need to be moved by rail. The Department understands that there may be concerns about the impact of construction on the existing rail freight network....

Natural Environment — Motion to Take Note (15 Jan 2015)

Lord Borwick: ...PM2.5 in London this morning is 67. Yesterday it peaked at 85. London’s Marylebone Road had the highest concentration of PM2.5 in the whole of Europe in 2012, with a concentration of almost 94 micrograms per cubic metre of air. Furthermore, the UK has failed to meet its recent EU air quality target for NO2—and the annual average for NO2 was exceeded in 38 out of 43 air quality...

Alan Whitehead: ...on it would be multiple vehicle movements over time. The Institute of Directors has suggested that there would be tens of thousands of vehicle movements during the period of operation of one pad and multiple thousands of cubic metres of water —and, indeed, fracking fluid—used in production in just one pad. When it comes to the cumulative impact over a period of time, the...

Opposition Day — [11th Allotted Day]: Housing Benefit (Abolition of Social Sector Size Criteria) (17 Dec 2014)

Andrew George: ...use of a scarce public resource—social housing. Those two objectives, however, contradict each other. If the second objective—the effective use of public resource—were achieved and every last cubic centimetre of every council house was fully occupied, it would fail to meet their first objective of saving money. I have a problem with the Labour party’s motion, partly...

Backbench Business: Ukraine (UK Relations with Russia) (11 Dec 2014)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: ...of difficult talks. This will be a substantial help to Ukraine during the winter. The annexe to the House of Commons Library briefing shows just how important this is to Ukraine, as it imports 25.1 billion cubic metres of Russian gas. I know that the Ukrainian Prime Minister will welcome this development, as getting through the winter was precisely what he was concerned about when we spoke...

Written Answers — Attorney General: Water (2 Dec 2014)

Robert Buckland: ...restrictors to reduce usage in washrooms. Reductions in the size of the estate and in staff numbers have also contributed to the decline in water consumption. Against the 2009/10 benchmark of 69,068 cubic metres, consumption was reduced by 40% to 41,164 cubic metres by the end of reporting year 2012/13. Projections for reporting year 2013/14 indicate further improvement. Specific...

Consumer Rights Bill: Report (2nd Day) (24 Nov 2014)

Lord Taverne: ...it is advertised in square feet. The other example that I gave in Committee was that a retailer may offer in his showroom two comparable fridges—one whose capacity is described in litres and the other in cubic feet. It appeared that the present Government’s view is that descriptions and advertisements are covered by the Weights and Measures Act, but David Willetts, the previous...

Shale Gas and Oil (EAC Report) — Motion to Take Note (4 Nov 2014)

Baroness Verma: ...of shale gas will have on the UK. The Government look forward to reading its report. My noble friend Lord Shipley referred to the Bowland basin. The probable amount of gas in there is estimated at around 1,300 trillion cubic feet, so there is huge potential. We are at the exploratory stages. Noble Lords asked when we would see first drilling. We hope to see something happening in the new...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: A8:  Belfast to Larne (7 Oct 2014)

Danny Kennedy: ...million,14-kilometre long A8 dualling scheme is 25 months through its 34-month programme. Construction is progressing very well and is approximately 75% complete. To date, approximately two million cubic metres of earthworks material has been excavated, including over 500,000 cubic metres of rock. The road-paving operation is continuing, with around 180,000 tons of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Written Ministerial Statement: Environment (23 Sep 2014)

Mark Durkan: ...; Strengthening of the presumption against the artificial modification of watercourses, for example through culverting. In addition, a new policy is now introduced that will carefully manage new or replacement development in proximity to reservoirs. This will apply to the potential flood inundation areas of reservoirs above a threshold size of 10000 cubic...
