Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Sustainable Electricity Generation (12 Jun 2018)

Barry Gardiner: In 2015, the then Secretary of State said that 2018 would be the year for the UK to ratchet up our Paris climate commitments and our progress towards sustainable generation, but in the past three years the Government have capped support for low-carbon energy and destroyed 12,000 solar jobs.

Us Steel and Aluminium Tariffs (4 Jun 2018)

When China began dumping its over-production into the European market back in 2015, it was the Secretary...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Points of Order (23 May 2018)

Barry Gardiner: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. You are a redoubtable champion of Members seeking to hold the Government to account.

International Trade: US Tariffs: Steel and Aluminium (17 May 2018)

Barry Gardiner: The US President seems intent on undermining the World Trade Organisation’s multilateral rules-based system. He is delaying the settlement of disputes by vetoing the appointment of judges to the appellate body and is using national security as a cover, in this case, for naked protectionism against foreign steel and aluminium. Does the Secretary of State still think that Donald Trump is...

International Trade: Leaving the EU: Preferential Market Access (17 May 2018)

Barry Gardiner: First, the Government said that they were simply rolling over these agreements on precisely the same terms.

Barry Gardiner: Offshore wind is an integral part of the clean growth strategy, which the Government have submitted to the United Nations as their official mid-century decarbonisation plan.
