Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day]: Advice on likely impact of onshore petroleum on the carbon budget (11 February 2015)

Julian Huppert: ...details, the minor issues. It is a shame that we do not have the chance to discuss and vote on the principles. We were denied that chance last time. There was not an opportunity to vote on the duty to maximise extraction or on trespass. There was a chance to vote on a moratorium, but, unfortunately, the Opposition abstained in large numbers. It is frustrating that we do not get the chance...

Infrastructure Bill [HL] — Commons Amendments (9 February 2015)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: ...on many of these issues, why not listen to it on those protection zones and take it as accepted that those zones will not be fracked?

Baroness Verma: ...that it is vital that the benefits of plunging oil prices are passed on quickly to consumers.

Government Contracts (SMEs) — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 January 2015)

Iain McKenzie: ...Access to finance—getting those loans—is still a problem. Another problem is tax simplification; tax can be difficult and confusing for SMEs. A further difficulty, which we have heard about many times, is fuel duty; the cost of fuel is crippling many small businesses. The final problem is late payments. If a payment is not made on time, that can end a small business, especially...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Fuels: Taxation (26 January 2015)

Lord Deighton: In answer to the first question, the falling price of petrol and diesel is likely to increase fuel duty revenues. This is because fuel duty is a unit tax that does not vary with the price of the product. For every litre of petrol or diesel sold, 57.95 pence is paid in fuel duty. For every 10 pence reduction in the price of fuel, there will be a loss of 2 pence in VAT per litre sold, if...

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Green Deal (22 January 2015)

Tim Yeo: ...of my Committee. Increasing the energy efficiency of UK households addresses all three aims of energy policy. It improves security, cuts energy bills and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

Duty also plays a large part, and I will make some comments about that in due course....

Joan Ruddock: ...requests. The results are terrifying and would be unbelievable if they had not come directly from official military sources.

Road Fuel Pricing (Equalisation) (20 January 2015)

Mark Garnier: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require that companies selling road fuels be required to charge prices equalised between rural and urban areas; and for connected purposes.

Natural Environment — Motion to Take Note (15 January 2015)

Baroness Ludford: ...main problem is diesel engines. Although there were undoubtedly good reasons for encouraging diesel, it is way past time for a radical change in policy direction. That will mean giving attention to the fiscal and other frameworks—such as fuel duty, vehicle excise duty and so on—under which people have been encouraged to go for diesel. I do not own a car but sheepishly admit...

Michael Weir: ...hon. Gentleman mentioned new entrants to the market. Yes, there are new entrants, but many are internet based and depend on direct debit, and the very people whom we most need to help with lower fuel prices are those least able to take advantage of those deals.

National Health Service — Motion to Take Note (8 January 2015)

Earl Howe: ...charities, which I know the party opposite supports. The key here is that it is not politicians who take these commissioning decisions but clinicians. As the noble Baroness conceded, there has not been a change in the Secretary of State’s core duty. He is responsible for promoting a comprehensive health service.
