Lord Astor of Hever: .... We work with all industry sectors to offer Service Leavers a range of employment options and positions through the creation of partnerships with major organisations such as BAE Systems, Jaguar, Siemens, Google and BT Openreach.

Petitions: Rail Services (Northern Lincolnshire) (16 July 2014)

Martin Vickers: ...growth. The Government have indicated on many occasions the importance they place on northern Lincolnshire and the wider Humber area. It has been acknowledged that the area has great economic potential. Siemens has already confirmed its investment on the north bank. The massive development by Able UK is going through its final planning stages. I hope that that major scheme will start in...

[Martin Caton in the Chair] — Ofsted (14 to 17-year-olds) (16 July 2014)

Andrew Percy: ...Obviously, north Lincolnshire forms part of the Humber region, which unfortunately has a very low skills base. That is one of the biggest risk factors on the local enterprise partnership’s risk register in terms of bringing in new investment. New investment is coming from Siemens, and one of the company’s big concerns has been about the local skills base. The Humber has some...

Economy: Manufacturing — Motion to Take Note (3 July 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Viscount Younger of Leckie: ...into the automotive sector, not only to effect change but to contribute so much to its success. That is a point which the noble Lord, Lord Lyell, highlighted. We are also developing new industries. Earlier this year, Siemens announced a 310 million investment in offshore wind at Hull, creating more than 1,000 jobs. However, there is no use manufacturing if you cannot sell what you...

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Humber Flood Risk Management Strategy (1 July 2014) See 3 other results from this debate

Andrew Percy: ..., today’s debate has been about the long-term strategy that is desperately required. Our region—the Humber, east Yorkshire and north Lincolnshire—is on the edge of an economic renewal. The Siemens investment has been talked about, and there is the potential Able site, so a lot is happening. The greatest risk to economic renewal must be the potential failure properly and...

Diana Johnson: ...triangle between Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield. In the light of the snubs the Government keep giving Hull, may we have a debate on this? We are doing our very best, getting the city of culture and Siemens into the city, but those are victories that are home-grown, not enabled by the Government.

Scotland: Independence — Motion to Take Note (24 June 2014)

Lord Haskins: ..., Australia, Canada and Spain all operate quasi-federal systems of government, and big corporations do not flock to Washington, Berlin, Canberra, Ottawa or Madrid. Boeing is in Seattle, McDonald’s is in Chicago, Siemens and BMW are in Munich and Airbus is in Toulouse and Hamburg. In the English regions outside London, it is my guess that 80% or 90% of decisions affecting the local...

Sulphur Regulations (18 June 2014)

Karl Turner: ...providing mitigating support to maritime businesses to ensure stability in the shipping sector. The Humber is the UK’s busiest trading route and positive things are happening in the estuary.

Opposition Day — [1st Allotted Day]: Passport Applications (18 June 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Paul Flynn: ...in 1967. I was a local councillor at that time and I know the service well. The last crisis that everyone made a big fuss about was a computer disaster. We virtually had two passport staffs—one employed by Siemens and one employed by the passport service—running in parallel. That crisis was nowhere near as bad as this one. At no time has there been such a sense of anxiety and...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (5th Day) (Continued) (11 June 2014)

Lord Hunt of Chesterton: ...experts there than other countries do. As the Germans have large numbers of experts there, what happens when a question on, for example, an urban railway arises? Lo and behold, the World Bank will support a big project proposed by Siemens. Equally, however—as the noble Lord, Lord Low, pointed out—the UK has great expertise in education, science and business, and it is important...

G7: Jobs and Work (11 June 2014)

Martin Vickers: .... Thanks to the efforts of the Government, working in partnership with our local enterprise partnerships and local authorities, much has been achieved to attract inward investment to northern Lincolnshire and the Humber region.

In addition, SSE has advised me that it is engaging closely with technical experts at Siemens, which is the manufacturer of the relay, to ensure that that fault will not occur on SSE’s network in the future. SSE’s position that the reason for the power outage was the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 May 2014)

David Cameron: I have experienced very positive and good meetings with Humberside MPs on a cross-party basis. We worked very hard to ensure that the Siemens investment went into Hull. That will bring not just jobs to that factory, but, I believe, a whole new industry and supply chain to the area. I am very happy to meet my hon. Friend to discuss flooding and other issues to ensure we do all we can to...

Hull Official Receiver’S Office (13 May 2014)

Diana Johnson: ...in Hull undermines the efforts of all those who are working to create a more prosperous city. Hull needs an additional 7,000 jobs to get to the national level of employment, and while we have had welcome news about Siemens coming to the city—something won by local effort—we have been hit hard by the recession and three years of flatlining. We know that the closure will take...

To give just one example, the Committee will welcome the announcement made by Siemens in March that it would invest 160 million in the Humber enterprise zone. A further 150 million will be invested by Associated British Ports in the Green Port Hull...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: New Rolling Stock (8 May 2014)

Mary Creagh: I thank the Secretary of State for that reply, but it was his Department’s mismanagement of the Thameslink rolling stock contract that meant it took two full years to close the deal with Siemens. That project will finish three years late in 2018 and our colleagues on the Public Accounts Committee said last October: “We are sceptical that the programme will be delivered by 2018...
