Capital Markets Union: A Welcome Start (EUC Report) — Motion to Take Note (4 Feb 2016)

the Earl of Courtown: ...8217;s comments. As has been outlined in the debate, on 20 March last year this House published its report entitled Capital Markets Union: A Welcome Start. It was based on the European Commission’s Green Paper Building A Capital Markets Union, which was published in February 2015. Since those documents were published, the capital markets union project has seen significant...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: New Clause 4 - Carbon capture and storage strategy for the energy industry (4 Feb 2016)

Clive Lewis: .... On fuel poverty, I will say what I think your fellow Conservative Members were saying yesterday, which is that the key thing for them was that energy efficiency has fallen through the floor. The green deal is finished and the energy company obligation has no funding beyond 2017. That leaves a big gap by 2018. On your own estimates, you are not going to achieve your own targets for...

Immigration Bill — Committee (4th Day) (Continued)8.49 pm (3 Feb 2016)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...Lady Hamwee and the noble Lord, Lord Wigley, for their contributions to the debate and for supporting the amendment. I thank the Minister as well for the characteristic way in which he has tried to deal with the arguments that have been raised during our debate. He mentioned the conference that will be taking place tomorrow. Last week I attended a briefing that was hosted by Justine...

Cycling: Government Investment (3 Feb 2016)

Stewart McDonald: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship for the first time, Mr Bone. Like other Members, I congratulate the hon. Member for Bolton West (Chris Green) on securing the debate this afternoon. In his opening remarks, he noted that cycling is an important part of transport policy, and he is absolutely right to mention that. Although there is a good story to tell on cycling across the...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: UN World Humanitarian Summit (3 Feb 2016)

Justine Greening: ...moment, I would describe the humanitarian system as a hospital that only has an accident and emergency department. From the start of such crises, we need not only to think ahead about how we can deal with the day-to-day challenges that refugees and people affected face, but to begin to build in long-term solutions so that they can get their lives back on track. That is why the issues of...

Serious Fraud Office: Bryan Evans (3 Feb 2016)

Robert Buckland: ...of Parliament but a former senior police officer, with a degree of insight into the matters we are discussing. I think he would agree that the thrust of his speech, which I listened to carefully, dealt with issues relating to the police, their involvement in this case and—I will put this neutrally—the lack of positive progress made for his constituent, Mr Evans. My hon. Friend...

[Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] — Fuel Poverty (3 Feb 2016)

Clive Lewis: ...-poor has been cut in real terms by a fifth, and the installation of energy efficiency measures has been cut by a third. As Members are aware, two new Government incentive schemes were introduced in 2013: the green deal and the energy company obligation. Two years later, the green deal has been stopped, and support for ECO is yet to be set beyond 2017 and no new funding is due to be...

Scottish Parliament: Climate Change Targets (Fuel Poverty and Housing) (3 Feb 2016)

Margaret Burgess: ...we have under our control, in what is a tough financial climate. The 2015-16 budget was increased over the course of the year with £15 million of consequentials from the United Kingdom Government’s green deal home improvement fund. That scheme was ended without warning by the UK Government and is therefore no longer available to us. The Scottish Government is fully committed to...

Scottish Parliament: Edinburgh South Suburban Railway (3 Feb 2016)

Sarah Boyack: ...parties. The south sub has never been the top priority; it has never been straightforward, as Jim Eadie outlined. I believe that it could be a game changer if we have a partnership with SEStran, look at the city deal options, bring the rail partners into play and look at the connections between tram, bus, rail and active travel. It needs all those things to fit together and for us to have...

Enterprise Bill [Lords] (2 Feb 2016)

Kevin Brennan: commissioner, but the Government’s proposal is a pale imitation of what is needed. There are more than 5 million small businesses in this country, but the Government anticipate that the small business commissioner will deal with just 500 cases per year. We know about Australia’s experience, particularly of the small business commissioner in the state of Victoria, the...

Feed-in Tariffs (Amendment) (No. 3) Order 2015 — Motion to Annul (2 Feb 2016)

Lord Grantchester: the FIT scheme. In 2012, the then Lib Dem Secretary of State introduced changes with the following perverse logic and curious soundbite: “By lowering the tariff we can extend it to more people—making clean, green, renewable energy available to the many not the few”. They did not set a long-term policy outcome. They did not base the policy on the best outcome for the UK...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 83 - Commencement (2 Feb 2016)

Phil Boswell: Tempted though I am to talk about solar, carbon capture and the Green Investment Bank, I will not go over issues that have been well covered in debate in both the Chamber and this Committee. Instead, I will focus on onshore wind. As part of the Bill, the Government propose to close the renewables obligation to new onshore wind projects from April 2016, one year earlier than originally...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Assembly Members (Reduction of Numbers) Bill: Consideration Stage (2 Feb 2016)

Chris Lyttle: It is my understanding that the Green Party supports this policy, but it can clarify that for itself. Maybe we should welcome the new-found agreement and cordiality between the DUP and Sinn Féin. The Member is, in effect, saying that he is blocked from supporting his party policy on this today because of a deal that he has with Sinn Féin.

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 80 - Emissions trading: United Kingdom carbon account (2 Feb 2016)

Clive Lewis: ...Government still believe in building a low-carbon economy here and will not use such accounting tricks to hide their failures on clean energy. However, let us put all that aside for just a second and deal simply with the cost of meeting our international commitments and getting value for taxpayers’ money—something that I am sure all Members here would agree is worthy of our...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Green Investment Bank: Privatisation (2 Feb 2016)

Kevin Brennan: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, what assessment he has made of differences in the ability of the Green Investment Bank to secure investment in (a) offshore wind power generation, (b) commercial and industrial waste processing and recycling, (c) energy from waste generation, (d) non-domestic energy efficiency and (e) support for the Green Deal as (i) public...

Road Traffic Act 1988 (Alcohol Limits) (Amendment) Bill [HL]: Second Reading (29 Jan 2016)

Lord Rosser: ...8,300 in 2013. The 2013 casualty figures relating to drink-drive accidents do show a fall from the previous year, but they are still far too high. I was a sitting lay magistrate for many years, and dealing with drink-driving cases was an all too regular occurrence. The frequency with which defendants who were well over the limit claimed they had had little more than “half a...

Written Answers — Department for Energy and Climate Change: Fuel Poverty (29 Jan 2016)

Andrea Leadsom: ...these projects is now underway and we are working closely with the Local Authorities to assess their impacts on health and on fuel poverty, as well as the effectiveness of their different approaches to delivery.Green Deal Communities awarded 23 Local Authorities funding to provide subsidy to householders to install energy efficiency measures, mainly solid wall insulation. Many of these...

Basic Payment Scheme — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (28 Jan 2016)

George Eustice: ...policy. We aimed to get a simpler CAP in the last Parliament. However, we have ended up with something far more complex, because the European Commission was determined to add what it called the greening of pillar 1 payments. We therefore have to map every hedge in the entire country, and there is a whole plethora of rules about the minimum width of a hedge, the maximum width of a hedge,...

Public Bill Committee: Energy BILL [Lords]: Clause 71 - Requirements to provide information (28 Jan 2016)

Alan Whitehead: ...holes. Indeed, I must admit that, although I was a member of the Bill Committee for the 2011 Act, my concentration was not on assignments and assignations of applications. It was rather more on whether the green deal would work well, which was the main substance of the Bill. In passing, I might say that we all saw what happened to that. The relevant part of the 2011 Act seems to me to...
