Electric and Low-emission Vehicles (15 Jun 2016)

Robert Goodwill: I suspect that that question should be put to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, but falling duty levels from petrol and diesel because we have embraced this new technology would be a very good problem to have. Dare I say it, but I am sure the Chancellor or future Chancellors will come up with other, more devious ways of collecting tax from everyday people. As someone who owns a car constructed...

I pay VAT on new tyres and parts for the car: we...

Scottish Parliament: Dignity, Fairness and Respect in Disability Benefits (9 Jun 2016)

Jeane Freeman: ...2014, an estimated 34 per cent of families with disabled children were going without heating.

Claudia Beamish: ..., to bring about an award for an on-road segregated cycling scheme, which we had thought up and which was developed as the community links plus scheme.

Kezia Dugdale: ...parties of the right or to the progressive parties of the left.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 May 2016)

George Osborne: I will tell the hon. Lady what we have done in recent weeks: we have taken another million people out of tax; we have frozen fuel duty; we have cut business rates for small businesses; we have seen the deficit fall by another 16 billion; we have delivered a record number of jobs; and we have introduced a national living wage. That is what we have been up to. What has Labour been up to?...

Debate on the Address: Europe, Human Rights and Keeping People Safe at Home and Abroad (24 May 2016)

Andy McDonald: .... For example, cuts to legal aid are turning access to justice from a right for all into the preserve of a wealthy few. The absence of accountability for the powerful in cases of historical injustices fuels the notion that the powerful in our society are above the law. Attacks on our rights and the failure to hold transgressors to justice are undermining civil and human rights both at...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (18 May 2016)

Hywel Williams: ...such as electrification of the north Wales main line. We still, unfortunately, have not an inch of electrified rail in north Wales. It would also lead to the inclusion of Welsh rural areas on the UK’s list for the EU fuel duty rebate, which is another important matter in rural areas. There are several other matters that we would like to see dealt with, such as a major upgrade for the...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Petrol Alternatives (11 May 2016)

Damian Hinds: The Alternative Fuels Framework (AFF) was set out at Pre-Budget Report 2003, and focused on carbon emissions. Based on the evidence available at the time on Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), the AFF found LPG to result in greater natural environmental damage compared to other road fuel gases.

Housing and Planning Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments (10 May 2016)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: My Lords, this amendment would place a statutory duty on the Government to undertake a review of minimum energy performance standards for new homes in England.

Tenant Farming (10 May 2016)

George Eustice: ...putting on farmyard manure, and adding fertilisers, sand or lime to bring the soil to its full productive potential. That takes time and if someone is there for only three and a half years it can fuel short-termism, which is not good for the quality of our soils. We should be concerned about soil in agriculture because it is at the heart of everything we do and we must protect it. We are...

Backbench Business - Universal Credit (Children)Backbench Business (10 May 2016)

Nick Thomas-Symonds: ...because he is only a part-timer in the Department. However, his answer on mitigating the effect of cuts was as follows: “let us not forget, the fact that every time we fill up our tank with petrol there is a saving…because of the freezing of the fuel duty.”—[Official Report, 6 January 2016; Vol. 604, c. 342.] If the answer in 2016 from the Tories to those who lose...

Housing and Planning Bill: Planning permission: provision of starter homes (9 May 2016)

Brandon Lewis: ..., it could get up to almost 15,000 on the cost of a home. If somebody lives in a house for an average of seven years, that is a pretty high price to pay.

It will seek evidence on the costs of energy measures and the benefits in fuel bill and carbon savings, which...

Energy Bill [Lords]: Onshore Wind Generating Stations in England and Wales (9 May 2016)

Andrea Leadsom: How does the hon. Gentleman feel about the bill payers and those in fuel poverty? How does he feel about a clear commitment to achieving a certain level of renewables deployment and no further? There must be a balance, and we believe that the right balance has been struck. The projects that this amendment would allow to access the grace period did not have planning permission as at 18 June...

BBC Charter Review (Communications Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (21 Apr 2016)

Lord Desai: ...whose proceeds could be hypothecated to the BBC. For a long time hypothecation was anathema to the Treasury, but recently it has increasingly adopted the idea that certain taxes should be hypothecated. I was looking around to find out what kind of numbers there are. Take, say, the duty on fuel along with those on tobacco, spirits and wine. Together they raise about 48 billion, so we...
