Business of the House: UK Climate Projections (18 Jun 2009)

Peter Ainsworth: These are obviously challenging projections, and they reinforce the need for a robust deal at Copenhagen at international level and for stepping up domestic efforts, both direct and indirect. On the indirect front, will the Secretary of State confirm that it is becoming increasingly clear that imports of biofuel are contributing to the global problem of climate change, rather than helping to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Green Energy (Definition and Promotion Bill) (Money) (17 Jun 2009)

Peter Ainsworth: I thank the Minister for moving the motion, and I welcome him to his new responsibilities. He has an honourable track record on green issues, so it is good to see him in his post. I hope that he will have much influence on Government thinking on these matters. I also thank other hon. Members for their kind words. There has been no attempt to water down the provisions that I am seeking to...

[Mr. Mike Weir in the Chair] (9 Jun 2009)

Peter Ainsworth: Let us be quite clear: it is not Surrey police that put a toe out of line; it is the Government who are out of order.

Council Tax Capping (Surrey) (9 Jun 2009)

Peter Ainsworth: It is a ludicrous situation. My hon. Friend sets it out very clearly. I know that he personally keeps a very close eye on public spending and value for money. Does he have any thoughts about the additional cost to the taxpayer of the Government proceeding to fight a judicial review?

Council Tax Capping (Surrey) (9 Jun 2009)

Peter Ainsworth: As a Member whose constituency borders Gatwick, I confirm that my hon. Friend is right. May I add another thing that has not been mentioned? One of the biggest crime hotspots in my constituency is Clacket Lane service station on the M25, which is a hotbed of vice of all kinds and a real problem for those policing the eastern part of Surrey. Let us not forget the problems created there as well.

Council Tax Capping (Surrey) (9 Jun 2009)

Peter Ainsworth: I, too, congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate. While he is setting the scene, will he explain the scale of the reduction in grant funding that Surrey has had to undergo since 1997? I believe that it is in the region of 40 per cent. in real terms.

Green Energy (Definition and Promotion) Bill (8 May 2009)

Peter Ainsworth: I am aware of the time and of the fact that the Minister's Parliamentary Private Secretary has been sitting behind him patiently waiting to introduce his Bill. I suspect that he had no option but to be patient this morning, and I shall therefore be brief. The debate has been interesting and worth while, with contributions of high quality. Three themes emerged: empowerment and ownership, about...

Green Energy (Definition and Promotion) Bill (8 May 2009)

Peter Ainsworth: I am listening to the Minister with great care. I am sure that he is aware of the need to be careful about the use of the word "renewables" to the exclusion of other technologies that are not, strictly speaking, renewable, but are low-carbon. Fuel-cell technology and micro combined heat and power are examples. I am sure that he is aware of that point, but I just want him to make it clear.

Green Energy (Definition and Promotion) Bill (8 May 2009)

Peter Ainsworth: I reiterate that it is not my or the Bill's intention to enable landowners to do all sorts of things without reference to the local community. It is essential that proper safeguards are in place. The purpose of the review will be to see what can be done to enable the more rapid roll-out of new technologies in rural areas.

Green Energy (Definition and Promotion) Bill (8 May 2009)

Green Energy (Definition and Promotion) Bill (8 May 2009)

Peter Ainsworth: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. First, I would like to offer my thanks to the cross-party group of right hon. and hon. Members who originally sponsored the Bill, and to colleagues who have taken the trouble to be here today. I know only too well that being here on a Friday is not always desperately convenient for hon. Members. I would like to thank the many companies...

Green Energy (Definition and Promotion) Bill (8 May 2009)

Peter Ainsworth: The Bill includes those technologies by reference to a previous Act—the Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Act 2006 introduced by the hon. Member for Edinburgh, North and Leith (Mark Lazarowicz). They are not mentioned specifically. I hope the whole House will recognise the importance of cutting household and business fuel bills, especially at a time of recession. Clause 2 promotes the...

Green Energy (Definition and Promotion) Bill (8 May 2009)

Peter Ainsworth: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend, who has an immensely distinguished record in this matter. He is right. The Bill is not just about being green—being good for the environment and the natural world. It is about being good for human beings, especially the least well off, who stand to gain most from such measures. Clause 3 calls for the Government's current microgeneration strategy to be...
