Opposition Day — [16th Allotted Day]: Electoral Registration (4 February 2015)

Matthew Offord: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. This afternoon, the Serjeant at Arms confirmed to me that the former Member for Eastleigh, Mr Chris Huhne, had applied for and been granted a parliamentary pass. Given the low esteem with which many Members of this House are held by our constituents in regard to poor behaviour, is there any method that we can use to rescind that application to ensure that...

Energy Policy and Living Standards (10 December 2014)

Mark Reckless: ...—of offshore energy, which costs about three times the market energy price. That is an absolutely extraordinary imposition on our constituents. At the same time, we are bringing in a capacity market that even Mr Huhne, who was the Energy Secretary, did not want to see. At least he was an economist and realised, as I would have thought the Minister would also recognise, that as soon...

Bill Presented — General Practitioner Surgeries (Rural Areas) Bill: Recall of MPs Bill (21 October 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Greg Clark: To correct the shadow Minister and for the information of the House, I point out that there are in fact six Members of Parliament who would have been caught by the provisions. I mentioned Chris Huhne and Eric Illsley on the imprisonment aspect. In terms of suspension, there would have been four more—Teresa Gorman, the right hon. Member for Leicester East (Keith Vaz), Denis MacShane and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Vasiliki Pryce: Prosecution Costs (14 October 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Philip Davies: In the cases of Chris Huhne and Vicky Pryce, the prosecution costs application to the court was 108,541 for Mr Huhne and 48,695 for Ms Pryce, despite the fact that Mr Huhne had no trials and Ms Pryce had two. Given that the court costs to the Ministry of Justice for Ms Pryce’s two trials were an estimated 30,000 on top of that, can the Solicitor-General explain the...

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Votes at 16 (6 May 2014)

Andy Slaughter: ...among the young, who are perhaps not so world-weary, slightly more idealistic, and therefore more shocked by the way in which politicians sometimes behave. People will have heard the exculpatory comments of Chris Huhne during his media exercise yesterday; I think we must all say that sometimes we politicians do not do ourselves any favours at all. Sitting back, doing nothing and hoping...

Clause 3 — Conviction of serious offence (28 February 2014)

Thomas Docherty: ...some of the cases that we have—regrettably—seen in recent years, in this Parliament and in other United Kingdom Parliaments and Assemblies. There was, for instance, the outrageous case of Chris Huhne, who perjured himself, and Opposition Members in the House of Commons as well as Conservatives in the other place have been jailed in connection with expenses. I think that there...

Backbench Business — Rural Communities (9 January 2014)

Nia Griffith: ...houses have to order and switch at the same time, which raises competition issues. How can anyone escape from the provider they are forced to take on when they move into a property? I raised this matter with the former Member Chris Huhne and with the regulator, but it was not entirely sorted out. We need a regulator that can deal with these off-grid issues, which is something Labour is...

Recall of Elected Representatives: Schedule 4 — Application and modification of emissions limit duty (4 December 2013)

Mark Reckless: ...not coming on stream. It is partly not coming on stream because the Minister has said, “If you bring it on stream, we will give you a great subsidy as long as you wait for a few years and do not bring it on now.” Even Chris Huhne, who was at least an economist, thought that was madness. Now, we are pushing that approach forward in the capacity market, stopping capacity coming...

Energy and Climate Change: Topical Questions (28 November 2013)

Caroline Flint: ...the right hon. Member for Sevenoaks (Michael Fallon), who said that it was an “absurd” waste of money and “assisted suicide” for British manufacturers, or his Liberal Democrat predecessor Chris Huhne, who said, “We do not need it to drive decarbonisation… It was a straightforward revenue-raising measure by the Tories”?

Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill — Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (12 November 2013)

Lord Pannick: ...abolish the defence of marital coercion. That was after the defence was unsuccessfully relied upon by Vicky Pryce at her trial in March for taking speeding points on behalf of her husband, Mr Chris Huhne. I have tabled this amendment to find out when the Government hope to come to a conclusion on this matter. Given the time, I shall deal with it briefly. Members of the Committee will know...

[Nadine Dorries in the Chair] — Energy Prices, Profits and Poverty (7 November 2013)

Peter Lilley: ...we should be doing that, and I urge the Government to tackle that with renewed vigour. I know that my right hon. Friend the Minister is personally keen to achieve that, and to make good the unnecessary 18-month moratorium that Chris Huhne imposed on this country; I think that was a greater crime than his speeding issues. We should recognise that the transmission costs are going up in large...

Energy Bill — Report (3rd Day) (6 November 2013)

Lord Whitty: ...system. I am not blaming everybody in the Government. I am not even blaming every DECC Minister, because I know DECC has fought quite hard on this front from time to time. I know that it was Her Majesty’s Treasury that forced Chris Huhne to abandon Warm Front. I also know that there are attacks on Ed Davey and the DECC position which are now expressed in terms of removing green...

Opposition Day — [10th allotted day] — Energy Price Freeze (6 November 2013)

Albert Owen: No. 10 Downing street. He was there for a few minutes—he was very busy—but he said he had sorted the energy companies out on prices. When I intervened on the then Energy Secretary, Chris Huhne, in a debate and asked him whether he had told the energy companies to hold their prices down, he replied, “No need, they’re already going to do it on their own”, but...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 October 2013)

Brian Binley: I know that the Prime Minister is very well aware of the concerns that many of our people have about rising energy prices. Will he therefore act to reduce the effect of Mr Huhne’s unfortunate legacy by cutting the carbon reduction policy, elongating the targets and relieving the burden on both consumer and business man?

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Chris Huhne (8 October 2013)

Thomas Docherty: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change on how many occasions Mr Chris Huhne has been registered as a visitor to his Department's main building since February 2012.

Public Bill Committee: European Union (Referendum) Bill: Clause 1 - Referendum on the United Kingdom’s membership of the European Union (4 September 2013)

Martin Horwood: ...near a swimming pool or deckchair for the entire conference. We spent all our time in something like an aircraft hangar, negotiating climate change. The process was very instructive. My then colleague and friend, Chris Huhne—he was a colleague and remains a friend, despite his slight mishaps—played a central role. I hope that his career and his contribution to this place will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (21 May 2013)

Philip Davies: Chris Huhne and his former wife were released from prison recently after serving just two months of an eight-month sentence. In surveys that I have conducted, an overwhelming majority of my constituents believe that prisoners should serve their sentences in full. Aside from locking them up for longer, Mr Speaker, will the Secretary of State say how long he thinks people should serve in prison...
