Baroness Neville-Jones: ...showed up in the European story. British business did not respond to the call for evidence and, as our chairman has said, while SMEs evidently value European funding and apply for it, larger British companies do not.

National Savings and Investments, an executive agency of the Treasury, was tasked with operating the scheme. It originally outsourced to Siemens, whose contract was then bought by Atos. The PAC expressed concern in 2013 that the Treasury was not...

Feed-in Tariffs (Amendment) (No. 3) Order 2015 — Motion to Annul (2 Feb 2016)

Lord Haskins: ...the Government have appeared to be a little less sure about where they are going than they were a few months ago.

Paris Climate Change Conference — Statement (15 Dec 2015)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: ...much welcomed. It gives certainty and sense of direction worldwide, not just in the UK.
