Energy Bill [HL] — Second Reading (22 Jul 2015)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: ..., it is easy for me to switch supplier. Why should we have to switch supplier to get the lowest tariff? I say as a trustee of Age Scotland—I see in her place my good friend the noble Baroness, Lady Greengross, with whom I worked at Age Concern—why should elderly people, or anyone, have to through the bother of switching suppliers to get a lower tariff? Why cannot we ensure that...

Budget Statement — Motion to Take Note (21 Jul 2015)

Baroness Kramer: ...corporation tax anyway. SMEs are the backbone of our future; surely the benefits could have been targeted at them, whether through NI or another mechanism—not at the big companies but at the small businesses. The Minister has talked a great deal about productivity, which is a vital subject and on which I hope we will have a proper future debate. His paper Fixing the Foundations is in...

Bill Presented — Constitutional Convention (No. 2) Bill: Finance Bill (21 Jul 2015)

Catherine West: ...in renewable energy. They have already tried to halt the development of the cheapest form of clean energy, by pulling the plug on onshore wind, and that comes hot on the heels of the rather flat green deal. I am not sure whether any Members know about the green deal. It was introduced back in 2010, it was heralded and much money was spent on it. The promotion money probably helped a few...

National Minimum Wage (Amendment) Regulations 2015 — Motion to Approve (16 Jul 2015)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: ...and pay. I do not apologise for introducing that and stretching the remit slightly because it has genuine relevance. If we are serious about trying to improve productivity, this has a part to play. In conclusion, of course I welcome the increase in the national minimum wage, but I do not think that we have solved the problem. I do not expect the Minister to be able to deal in detail with...

Bill Presented — Criminal Cases Review Commission (Supplementary Powers) Bill: Summer Adjournment (16 Jul 2015)

Therese Coffey: ...of the Select Committee on Environment, Food and Rural Affairs he will be able to bring his additional weight to bear on these matters. It is right that we focus on ensuring that rural parts of our country not only get a fair deal but get access to the services and infrastructure we need. I wanted to answer a point made by my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Sleaford and North...

BBC Charter Review — Statement (16 Jul 2015)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, I agree that we should listen to parliamentary committees, especially ones in this House, which often bring a great deal of expertise. The point about looking forward Cassandra-like at the BBC Trust was a point well made. We have made it clear that we are now looking at options for governance, and the chair of the BBC Trust has obviously raised questions about the way the trust...

Business of the House: BBC Charter Review (16 Jul 2015)

Chris Bryant: ...145.50 plus CPI interest rate increase in the licence fee, the chair of the BBC Trust said: “The word of a chancellor and a secretary of state you should be able to trust”, but the Secretary of State seems to cast doubt today on that deal. So what is it, deal or no deal? Will it be 145.50 plus CPI interest rate or not? [Laughter.] I am glad the Secretary of State...

Business of the House: NHS Reform (16 Jul 2015)

Kate Green: ...the comments of my neighbours, the hon. Member for Altrincham and Sale West (Mr Brady) and my hon. Friend the Member for Wythenshawe and Sale East (Mike Kane). Three years ago the new health deal for Trafford resulted in the reduction of overnight and weekend services at Trafford General hospital on the basis that patients would receive better specialist care at Wythenshawe hospital....

Cities and Local Government Devolution Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (15 Jul 2015)

Lord Kennedy of Southwark: ...add our names in support of it and we do so again today. It is of course the policy of not only the Labour Party—and now the Liberal Democrats—but of the Scottish National Party and, I believe, the Green Party and Plaid Cymru. It is also, as was referred to earlier, the policy of the Scottish Conservative Party, whose leader Ruth Davidson MSP is on record as saying that she is...

UK Steel Industry (15 Jul 2015)

Tom Blenkinsop: ...investment by the private sector. Further integration into industrial policy and essential long-term national infrastructure subjects that are actually followed through would give companies the green light to invest. At present, too many infrastructure projects fail to incorporate British-made products into their design. Government can promote procurement strategies that support domestic...

Future of the BBC — Question for Short Debate (14 Jul 2015)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...presented with the opportunity, through the charter review, to consider in full the BBC’s activities, its appropriate scale and scope, and how it should deliver in the future what is expected of it by all licence fee payers. The noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, asked if the Green Paper was on track. I am glad to be able to answer positively and say that a charter review consultation...

Bill Presented — National Insurance Contributions (Rate Ceilings) Bill: Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (14 Jul 2015)

Jonathan Reynolds: ...exports. There have been many warm words from the Government on this matter, but there has been little improvement over the past three to four years, and the sectors that could provide growth, such as the green economy, have been consistently undermined. We need a proper industrial strategy and a smart interventionist state, with the kind of policies pioneered by the Labour Government...

Domestic Renewables Industry — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (14 Jul 2015)

Michael Weir: ..., from pre-sale contact to post-installation services. Our concern is that the rapid expansion of the small-scale renewable market has stretched the capabilities of both these schemes to safeguard the consumer against poor installation and customer service.” To back that up, I asked the Library for some figures on complaints dealt with by the Renewable Energy Consumer Code. It...

Public Sector Broadcasting (Diversity) — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (14 Jul 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: ...service broadcasting includes the main channels of ITV, STV, UTV and Channel 5. Key among those, of course, is the BBC. As we all know, we are about to start the process of BBC charter review. The sections of the Green Paper that have not already been leaked will be published on Thursday and the Culture Secretary will deliver an oral statement. I hope that all hon. Members who are present...

Health Provision (South Gloucestershire) (14 Jul 2015)

Jane Ellison: ...Primary Care Trust presented its emerging themes proposals for the development of a health and social care centre at Frenchay with community in-patient facilities, but the trust did not really deal with the affordability of those proposals in any detail. Indeed, it was noted at the time that there was no new funding available for the project and that it would require reinvestment of...

Isil: Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (13 Jul 2015)

Emily Thornberry: ...Government start talking about housing. Government Members may recall the modest proposal Labour made in relation to private rents. We were asking for just three years’ security. We were not asking for a great deal and we were not forcing rents down, but it was something—it was a start. But good heavens, one would have thought that civilisation as we knew it was about to end!...

Bills Presented: Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (9 Jul 2015)

James Morris: ...advantage of the powers and responsibilities that the Government are offering to develop those sites. We should not go down the route of a recent idea by Dudley council to develop a huge industrial site on green-belt land just outside Halesowen. That is a very bad idea. I am the first to want to get jobs and investment into the black country, but the policy of Dudley’s LEP and local...

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — amendment of the law (8 Jul 2015)

Barry Gardiner: ...levy. Instead of incentivising investment and stabilising the low-carbon industries, the Chancellor put a 3.9 billion tax on renewables. It was very softly spoken in the Budget, but at a stroke he killed off our chances of developing this growing green economy. The jobs, the growth and the international exports that could have come from it have just been thrown away to raise...

Ways and Means: Financial Statement (8 Jul 2015)

George Osborne: ...gains tax rate on their carried interest. We will stop corporates artificially increasing the value of stock for tax purposes, and to focus the employment allowance on employment we are restricting it so that companies where the director is the sole employee will no longer be able to claim. We are consulting today on how to deal with the increasing abuse of the rules around disguised...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Topical Questions (8 Jul 2015)

Justine Greening: There are many elements of the strategy that need to be in place to tackle the migration crisis. How and where we deal with applications can be part of that, and I know that those discussions are going on inside the EU.
