[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Green Deal (22 January 2015)

Tim Yeo: ...the green deal could be improved. We identified three types of barriers that needed to be addressed. First, there are financial barriers.

Regrettably, there has been quite widespread mistrust of...

Cathal Ó hOisín: ...price and an inquiry is ongoing into how that happened. In terms of the decentralisation of jobs to the north-west, we have a number of Civil Service jobs in the north-west in pensions and pension credit and those are very welcome.

Control of Offshore Wind Turbines Bill (16 January 2015)

Jonathan Reynolds: ...one of just five Members who voted against the UK’s world-leading Climate Change Act 2008.
