Renewable Energy - Question for Short Debate (28 Jun 2016)

Lord Grantchester: ...early closure of onshore wind schemes, the huge 65% cuts to feed-in tariffs for smaller solar schemes, the ceasing of support to biomass conversion plants, the scrapping of the zero-carbon homes programme, the ending of the Green Deal scheme for home efficiency, and uncertainty regarding the future of carbon capture and storage. The noble Baroness, Lady Featherstone, was again correct to...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Referendum (Implications for Scotland) (28 Jun 2016)

Ross Greer: ...for such efforts will be welcomed by those we represent. The support extends beyond the chamber, of course; it extends across the continent. Senior politicians from across the Liberal, Conservative and Green traditions have indicated a willingness to secure Scotland’s future in Europe. Indeed, in the course of this debate, I have received the following from the co-chairs of the group...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Finance: Fiscal Powers (20 Jun 2016)

Paul Girvan: ...we entered the EEC back in the 1970s. Mention was made of a reduction in our VAT level. Another tax that was brought in was air passenger duty (APD), which was really brought about only to deal with a green tax on our airlines. If we exit Europe, will you support the doing-away with VAT and APD?

EU Membership: Economic Benefits (15 Jun 2016)

Ian Blackford: ...has benefited us. Let me mention opportunities for jobs, and workers’ rights that have been protected through Europe. The Minister for Employment is not in her place, but she said that she wants to deal with some of the rights for workers that come from the European Union. We must say to those on the left and those who voted for Labour, the SNP, the Green party and Plaid Cymru:...

EU Referendum and EU Reform (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (15 Jun 2016)

Baroness Ludford: ...on pragmatic and transactional arguments—although that has improved in recent months. Of course, pragmatic arguments are essential, but a dose of what the noble Lord, Lord Boswell, called “feelings and ideals” has the advantage of putting everything in context, set against the past and looking ahead to the future. The noble Lord, Lord Browne, referred to his family...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Rural Roads: West Tyrone (14 Jun 2016)

Daniel McCrossan: I take the opportunity to congratulate the Minister on his recent elevation and also to thank my constituency colleague Barry McElduff for bringing forward this Adjournment debate. Before dealing specifically with West Tyrone, I welcome the Finance Minister's extra £25 million for the Department for Infrastructure. However, I would like to point out that, last week, we heard that the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget (No. 2) Bill: Second Stage (14 Jun 2016)

Máirtín Ó Muilleoir: No, we will not, because Christopher will ask to make a point and interrupt me. What I will say is that you are questioning the commitment of the government parties to put funding where it is needed to make sure that our front-line services not only survive but thrive and that our young people have access to university. Let us go through some of the numbers under 'A Fresh Start'. I know that...

Wales Bill (14 Jun 2016)

Chris Davies: It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Arfon (Hywel Williams). Even though I did not agree with a great deal of his speech, I congratulate him on the passion for and commitment to Wales that we are accustomed to hearing from him. I both congratulate and sympathise with the Secretary of State and his Minister. It is never easy taking over a Bill that was started by a previous...

Scottish Parliament: Greenhouse Gas Inventory 2014 (14 Jun 2016)

Roseanna Cunningham: My colleague the Minister for Business, Innovation and Energy has just whispered in my ear that it would be timely to remind members that, just a year or so ago, Westminster pulled the plug on the green deal. Discussions about energy efficiency are relevant and important, but let us not forget that much bigger context. Energy efficiency is a priority for the Scottish Government and it has...

EU: Energy Governance (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (13 Jun 2016)

Lord Howell of Guildford: ...because the Danes have a huge surplus of wind power and are anxious to transmit it whenever it would otherwise upset their entire grid balance. Then there is Iceland, where we could draw on volcanic energy, which would be extremely green and attractive but would again require a considerably long connector system and complicated switching stations either end. But all in all, for Britain...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matters of the Day: Death of a Northern Ireland Football Fan in Nice (13 Jun 2016)

David Ford: ...was not just a football fan but a football participant who enriched the life of Braid United. By the remarks already on social media, which refer to him as a true gentleman who contributed a great deal, he was clearly well respected. I understand that the green and white army will pay tribute to him at the Ukraine match. That is appropriate, but it is also appropriate that, in this...

Renters’ Rights Bill [HL] - Second Reading (10 Jun 2016)

Baroness Grender: ...into the monthly or weekly rent. Dorrington Residential, one of London’s largest residential landlords, works only with letting agencies which agree not to charge renters any fees. In its words: “Dorrington is able to run a successful residential investment business and give renters a fair deal by avoiding unnecessary charges, and we can’t see why other...

Government and Parliament - Motion to Take Note (9 Jun 2016)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: ...Lord, Lord Strathclyde, that pre-legislative scrutiny was a recommendation of the Modernisation Committee in 1997, so it was not all bad, as he suggests. Mention has been made of the fact that we do not use Green Papers and White Papers and use Henry VIII clauses far too often. Although I agree with the noble and learned Lord, Lord Judge, on a great deal, as a business manager, it must be...

Economy and Finance - Motion to Take Note (9 Jun 2016)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: .... All the alternatives to membership that have significant access to the single market would require the UK to implement its rules, but the UK would no longer have a vote on those rules. No country has been able to negotiate a better deal than the alternatives considered in this analysis, and it would not be in the EU’s interest to agree such a deal for the UK. What incentive would...

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

Jeane Freeman: ...and respect. Social security is an investment to support people; it is an investment in people and communities. It there for any one of us when we need it, and without blame or stigma. The Government has already achieved a great deal with the powers that we currently have. We have protected and invested in the independent living fund. Through the self-directed support strategy and the...

Bus Services Bill [HL] - Second Reading (8 Jun 2016)

Baroness Randerson: ..., but you can get very comprehensive information on trains. In practice, buses outside London are overwhelmingly provided by the big five companies. They rarely compete with each other, and exercise a great deal of power in the market. As my noble friend Lord Shipley said, there is in reality very little competition in most places. It is going to be difficult to deal with that domination...

Business of the House: Disability Employment Gap (8 Jun 2016)

Neil Gray: achieve their goal of supporting disabled people who, with the correct support and guidance, would be able to find employment. Jobcentres, which are there to provide such help and support, are dealing with people who are not capable of working because of their ill health and disabilities, but who have mistakenly been sent there as a result of the flawed ESA decision-making process....
