Isil: Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (13 Jul 2015)

Michelle Donelan: ..., is its residents, who are welcoming, generous and kind. The gateway to the south-west, my constituency is home to Chippenham town, traditionally a cattle market town based around Westinghouse, now Siemens. It also contains Melksham, a market and manufacturing town where some of the largest companies remain: Avon Rubber and Cooper Tyres. Now, however, most residents in Melksham,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Jun 2015)

David Cameron: ..., and the Government stand ready to assist in any way they can. He is right that the broader picture is more positive. We have the Able UK Marine Energy Park creating up to 4,000 jobs, and also the Siemens’ project nearby, which is a major investment for the region. We will continue to provide support for the regional growth fund; 49 awards have been made in Yorkshire and the Humber...

Stephen Farry: ...different parts of the world, including the United States, Denmark, Spain and Germany, to share best practice on further education and vocational training. Some of the biggest employers, such as Siemens, which use vocational training, were also represented. The conference built on a strong local track record of learning from best practice internationally around the successes of vocational...

Energy: Onshore Wind — Statement (22 Jun 2015)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: ...of the mix of our energy supply and will be into the future. As I said, this policy was in our manifesto and I do not think that anybody should be surprised by it. In terms of industry, you only have to look at Siemens investing money in Hull in the offshore wind industry to know that industry is very well aware of the commitment of this Government to renewables and indeed to the agenda in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Onshore Wind Subsidies (22 Jun 2015)

Diana R. Johnson: We worked very hard in Hull to bring Siemens to the city to develop the offshore renewables industry. Does the Minister understand how the current approach, and the previous approach in relation to solar, are not at all helpful to long-term investment in renewables?

Opposition Day — [2nd Allotted Day]: Productivity (17 Jun 2015)

Alan Mak: built on. Foreign investors also have confidence in the northern powerhouse concept. We have seen massive investments all over the north, with Hitachi, Nissan and Rolls-Royce in the north-east, Siemens in Hull and East Yorkshire, the airport city in Manchester, and the new deep-water port in Liverpool. These are the strong foundations on which the northern powerhouse is being built....

North of England: Transport — Motion to Take Note (17 Jun 2015)

Lord Prescott: ...the two major ports. We will find ourselves in the centre of the global growth—not just on the periphery of Europe—coming in from the Atlantic side and the major developments and investment taking place on Merseyside, over to the east where there has been major investment in renewal with Siemens developing the Hull port. We have a little part of the connection between them but...

Opposition Day — [1st allotted day]: Climate Change (10 Jun 2015)

Barry Sheerman: ...power is bad. I could give the example of the east coast of Yorkshire, where we have had an all-party, positive attitude. We have been working across parties together to get the vast investment with Siemens to get wind power from the sea.

Black Country University Technical College (9 Jun 2015)

Nicholas Boles: Walsall College and four other nearby university technical colleges—Aston; the JCB Academy; and West Midlands Construction UTC and Health Futures UTC, both of which are due to open this year. Siemens has provided financial support with transport costs for students to be able to transfer to those UTCs. Although I promise to keep a fairly close eye on what happens to those young...

European Union Referendum Bill (9 Jun 2015)

Paul Farrelly: ...future. Like it or not, Britain plays a vital role in the European Union, and it would be simply unforgiveable to our country, and all our European neighbours, if we withdrew. Turning to the economics, in my area we have Siemens in Congleton, Bentley, owned by Volkswagen, in Crewe, and Toyota in Derby. All those companies believe that it would be bad for investment, jobs and Britain if we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Scotland Bill (8 Jun 2015)

Jeff Smith: ..., vibrant cultural heart of our city. It has areas of deprivation that have suffered badly under the austerity programme of the previous Government, but it boasts successful high-tech industry such as Siemens in West Didsbury. It has great public services, such as world-class cancer treatment at the Christie hospital. It is home to students, graduates and academics from our superb...

Baroness Pinnock: ...board of Yorkshire Forward, which was one of the regional development agencies that had tremendous success in bringing economic development and world-class industry to Yorkshire, including bringing Siemens to Hull, which the noble Lord, Lord Prescott, mentioned. I served on that board for 10 years so can claim to have some experience of what can be achieved by people coming together with...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (1st Day) (27 May 2015)

Baroness Bottomley of Nettlestone: ...;Hull City will be back in the Premier League. The city, like the nation, has faced great upheaval. It was heavily bombed in both world wars. It has endured economic adversity. Building the northern powerhouse will benefit Hull, along with many other major industrial cities. Hull now faces the future with greater confidence. It has attracted industry, including the Siemens offshore wind...

Energy and Climate Change: Low-carbon Energy Sources (19 Mar 2015)

Edward Davey: this, we would not see the supply chain growing. But here is a statistic for him: the supply chain in the UK for low-carbon energy investment is booming. We have had the massive investment from Siemens and Associated British Ports in Hull, transforming that city, and we have seen what MHI Vestas has been doing in the Isle of Wight. Under this Government, low-carbon energy investment and...

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (18 Mar 2015)

Diana R. Johnson: ...Deputy Prime Minister’s golden triangle—but again Hull seems to have been excluded from that. May we have some clarification on that? On jobs and growth, of course it is good to see more people in work, but in Hull 1,000 people applied for the 14 Siemens jobs that were advertised, which shows the lack of good-quality, full-time, permanent, skilled jobs in the area and how there...

Wind Farm Subsidies (Abolition) Bill (6 Mar 2015)

Matthew Hancock: ...that precise distinction clear, and I am grateful to my hon. Friend for the opportunity to do so. Before bringing things to a close, I want to set out why we need to do this in a measured way. The decision by Siemens and Associated British Ports to invest 310 million in offshore wind turbine manufacturing in Hull will create 1,000 direct jobs. It was a significant event for that...

[Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Low Carbon Energy Generation (26 Feb 2015)

Albert Owen: I fully support the plans for Swansea. In my area, where there is good tidal flow, we have had a demonstration from Marine Current Turbines and Siemens, and we have seen the technology working in Strangford lough. Siemens did not take it to the next stage. The Government have done what they can. There are good renewable obligations and support in Scotland and other places, but schemes have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Transparency Agenda (11 Feb 2015)

Diana R. Johnson: I have a local issue to which I would like the Minister to respond. In Hull, 1,000 people applied for the first 14 jobs that Siemens recently advertised. Until 2013, MPs got constituency-based figures on the number of jobseekers going after each job vacancy. I would like to know why this was stopped under his Government. I have never had a clear explanation, and I do not think it is aiding...

Energy and Climate Change: Topical Questions (5 Feb 2015)

Diana R. Johnson: Siemens is to start the production of offshore wind turbines in Hull, potentially bringing in thousands of news jobs to the city. Is the Secretary of State aware that the UK Independence party opposes that investment and those jobs coming to Hull, and that the Greens are calling for a boycott of Siemens locally as well?
