South West Trains (29 October 2014)

Claire Perry: ...of the 38 billion investment commitment is being spent on the South West Trains network. Just a few weeks ago, I was on the platform at Waterloo with South West Trains and its Network Rail alliance colleagues, Siemens and Angel Trains, to announce that 150 new vehicles are currently being made to be put into use on the franchise by the start of 2018. The introduction of the new...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Economic Growth (28 October 2014)

Matthew Hancock: ...needed to give business the confidence to invest. Industrial strategy has already helped to create jobs and encourage significant investment by industry.

[Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] — Communicating Climate Science (23 October 2014)

Julie Elliott: .... The Committee on Climate Change, the Government’s independent advisory body, has warned the Government about their mixed messages on climate change. For example, the CCC supports a 2030 power sector decarbonisation target, as do Labour and large renewable energy developers such as Siemens, and yet the Government have refused to set such a target. For the sake of clarity, I should...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (22 October 2014)

Andrew Percy: ...hit north Lincolnshire and east Yorkshire, and many of my constituents are still out of their homes. Given the importance of the Humber to the UK economy—inward investment from companies such as Siemens, energy generation, petrochemicals and so on—and given that we know another surge will happen in the next 50 years, may I urge the Prime Minister to look favourably on the plan...

Damian Green: ...business want us to stay in a reformed Europe. It is not just the CBI, as he quoted, but the Engineering Employers Federation and many big companies. Ford, BAE Systems, Unilever, Citibank and Siemens have all warned of the damage that will be caused to their businesses if we pull out. Of course, that would affect not just their businesses but tens of thousands, perhaps hundreds of...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witness (14 October 2014)

...we had a major retender of our back-office operations contract, because for the past 15 years NS&I was outsourced—all of our back office and front office—to a company that was formerly known as Siemens, but was then bought by Atos. We went through a very rigorous retender process, at which exactly the sort of work envisaged with tax-free child care was specified in the...

Energy and Climate Change: Topical Questions (4 September 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Diana Johnson: With Hull city council yesterday granting final planning permission to Siemens, will the Secretary of State join me in encouraging everyone to take advantage of the new green jobs that will be coming to the city, while deploring the statement that UKIP put out saying it would rather the wind turbine jobs went abroad and the statement of the Hull Green party, which last week told BBC Radio...

Nicholas Boles: I am delighted to be able to tell my hon. Friend that Virgin Media, Jaguar Land Rover, Siemens, the BBC, National Grid and Barclays, to name just a few, are committed to setting up and offering traineeships. I will certainly be happy to look into seeing whether any of those could be available to his constituents in the Medway area.

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...

Business of the House (26 June 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

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.

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...
