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

Edward Davey: ...do 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 March 2015)

Diana 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 March 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 February 2015) See 2 other results from this debate

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 February 2015)

Diana 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 February 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Diana 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?

Robert Flello: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, if he will commission trials of the Siemens eHighway in the UK similar to those conducted in California.

Control of Offshore Wind Turbines Bill (16 January 2015) See 7 other results from this debate

Christopher Chope: ..., and benefited those in other countries who are less principled. I continue to be concerned about that Act. On jobs, my right hon. Friend the Minister rightly says that because of the industrial policy, Siemens has come here with its technology. It has not transferred the technology; it has come here and is making money from offshore wind turbines. Let us not forget, however, that the...

Business of the House (15 January 2015)

Diana Johnson: ...involve a loss of jobs. Surprisingly, I have just received an e-mail from the site managing agent criticising me for raising concerns about those job losses. This is at a time when the 14 new jobs at Siemens in Hull attracted 1,000 applicants. May we have a debate on the jobs situation, especially in northern cities? Also, two years ago, the Government scrapped the gathering of statistics...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: High Speed 2 Railway Line (15 January 2015)

Cheryl Gillan: ...made between (i) his Department and (ii) HS2 Ltd and (A) Alstom, (B) Atkins, (C) Bechtel, (D) Costain, (E) Hitachi, (F) Keolis, (G) Parsons Brinckerhoff, (H) the Rail Industry Association, (I) Siemens, (J) Laing O'Rourke, (K) Bombardier, (L) Young Rail Professionals, (M) National Skills Academy and (N) Railway Engineering in each of the last five years.

Network Rail (13 January 2015)

Mark Reckless: ...taking his current role with Network Rail, he was the UK managing director of Bombardier, which, under his leadership, secured the important Crossrail contract for building trains, having previously lost out on the Thameslink contract to Siemens. Clearly, running leading infrastructure projects requires a different set of skills, given their complexity, but he replaced Simon Kirby, who...

Benefit Claimants (North-east) — [Mrs Linda Riordan in the Chair] (7 January 2015)

Esther McVey: ...whole to get it back to working. There are various sources of extra support, such as the 310 million in the north-east for the regional growth fund. There are new and other companies expanding there, such as Siemens and Quorn. There is offshore development, and 20 million for research to create jobs and innovation. That shows that considerable infrastructure investment is going...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 January 2015)

David Cameron: ...we are going to see growth in jobs and investment right across our country. That is why he and others with me have been working hard to bring investment to the Humber, including of course the vital Siemens plant, and why we have seen employment go up and unemployment come down. Because of the local growth deals agreed in July, the Humber local enterprise partnership has over 100...

Julie Elliott: ...traded, were policies to encourage further investment in clean energy. Labour is committed to setting a 2030 power sector decarbonisation target, which is supported by organisations as varied as the Committee on Climate Change, energy developers such as Siemens and Dong Energy and companies such as Asda, Sky and PepsiCo as a crucial tool to provide certainty and clarity to drive...

Energy and Climate Change: Energy Security (18 December 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Albert Owen: ...mix, but is he as disappointed as I am that the most predictable of energy sources, tidal energy, has not progressed beyond the demonstration schemes and into commercial energy projects, including Siemens in my constituency? Will he meet me and a delegation from the Anglesey Energy Island to see how we can progress so that national needs can be met by local sources?

Energy and Climate Change: Topical Questions (18 December 2014)

Nick Harvey: My right hon. Friend will be aware that the marine energy sector has recently had bad news with the proposed sale of Marine Current Turbines by Siemens and Pelamis going into administration. In the light of fierce competition from France, which has signed partnership agreements to develop two schemes off the Brittany coast, what is he going to do keep the UK at the forefront of this, and will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Economic Growth (The Humber) (9 December 2014)

Danny Alexander: ...have been a number of initiatives in the Humber area that have helped to grow the economy, not the least of which is the enormous effort that Ministers in several Departments made in attracting the Siemens investment to Hull, which is an incredibly important part both of creating jobs in that area and of delivering our ambitions for renewable energy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Autumn Statement (3 December 2014)

George Osborne: ...north of England. I think there are real opportunities, alongside the flood defence programme in the Humber estuary that we have talked about. The investment in the enterprise zones there and the Siemens investment in Humberside are important. There are lots of great things happening in Hull, and the “Hook up Hull” campaign is yet another example of a great campaign that we are...

Wessex Route Study (Passenger Capacity) — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (2 December 2014)

John Hayes: ...Member for Devizes (Claire Perry), announced the latest capacity enhancement to be contracted with South West Trains. As part of plans to provide capacity for an extra 24,000 peak-time passengers each day, 150 new vehicles are being manufactured by Siemens to be put into passenger use by the start of 2018. However, the hon. Member for Nottingham South—as she said, I know her...
