Energy Bill [Lords]: New Clause 7 — Imposition of renewable transport fuel obligations (13 Jul 2004)

Mr Richard Page: I am intervening now because, in view of the time, I will not make a contribution. Will all the steps that the Minister is outlining allow biofuels to be produced in the United Kingdom, so that we do not create a regime whereby those come in from abroad? The biofuels manufacturers feel that the 20p support is not enough. It is satisfactory for processing chip oil and for rendering, but for...

Energy Bill [Lords]: New Clause 5 — Annual report on security of energy supplies (13 Jul 2004)

Mr Richard Page: As the House knows, clause 1 originally placed on the Secretary of State the duty "to ensure the integrity and security of electricity and gas supply". Placing that duty on the Secretary of State's shoulders was responsible and justifiable, but the hon. Member for Ochil (Mr. O'Neill) feels that it would be too much for any Secretary of State to bear. With a verbal flick of the hand, the...

Energy Bill [Lords]: New Clause 4 — Microgeneration (13 Jul 2004)

Mr Richard Page: I shall start by taking up the point made by the hon. Member for Banff and Buchan (Mr. Salmond), who spoke about the time available on Report. The 11 Government new clauses, plus two Government amendments that are long enough to be clauses, are unacceptable and should be considered in Committee. This important Bill has been through a gestation process in a Department, a Green Paper, the...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: New Clause 3 - Renewable Energy Authority (22 Jun 2004)

Mr Richard Page: I stand duly chastised by you, Mr. O'Brien, but in fact, I was going to go back through these points, because the very reason that responsible, senior Labour members of the Committee have tabled these new clauses is that there is a failure in other parts of the Bill to achieve what their new clauses seek to achieve. If Ministers had not wiped out clauses 1, 2 and 3 in a cavalier fashion to...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: New Clause 3 - Renewable Energy Authority (22 Jun 2004)

Mr Richard Page: I warm to these new clauses, but to give justice to their contents would take a great deal of time. The Committee will be delighted to know that I do not intend to go through them all in great detail. We have plenty of time. I understand that another two days of Committee stretch ahead of us, so it is not as if we are coming up against any time barriers. I hope that the Committee is relaxed...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 180 - Assistance for areas with high distribution costs (22 Jun 2004)

Mr Richard Page: I have read the explanatory notes to the clause with great interest, and the Minister has made various statements, and it is fairly obvious that people in the south, for example, or other areas nearer generation will have to subsidise those further away. Has he got any handle on what the costs will be and what the difference will be in what people have to pay? England already gives more...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 180 - Assistance for areas with high distribution costs (22 Jun 2004)

Mr Richard Page: It is exceedingly long, for which I apologise, but I am trying to give the Minister a bit of time to answer, so I hope that you will suffer it in this case, Mr. Sayeed. The Minister also talked about the distributor with the highest area costs, but the explanatory notes talk about ''costs that are significantly higher than'' those in ''other areas''. Are we talking about just one area,...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 177 - Prepayment meters (22 Jun 2004)

Mr Richard Page: I am aware of the way in which electricity prices have operated over the last few years, but what has been created in pulling down prices has sown the seeds for increased electricity prices in future. It was a short-term gain that will be at a long-term cost. So often politics works on exactly that basis. Things must be got right for today's election and no one worries about the situation...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 177 - Prepayment meters (22 Jun 2004)

Mr Richard Page: The Minister must try to avoid stereotypes. Members on both sides of the Committee come from a variety of backgrounds and have a variety of achievements. My training and background fully qualify me to make any remark I care to about the poor and about my concern for them.

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 177 - Prepayment meters (22 Jun 2004)

Mr Richard Page: This is a caring amendment, and I welcome the thinking behind it. I see it as an opportunity for equality of treatment of various individuals. The hon. Gentleman's remarks brought back memories of my grandmother, who has long gone from this mortal coil, putting the shilling in her gas meter in south Wales to keep the gas going as there was no electricity in those days. As you will appreciate,...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 109 - Approval of decommissioning programmes (15 Jun 2004)

Mr Richard Page: I appreciate the Minister saying that he does not want things to lie there and rot, but is he not aware of a comprehensive programme of man-made reefs in the bays of the Caribbean where rigs have been deliberately toppled into the water to become fish sanctuaries and wildlife havens? The sport of fishing off those toppled oil rigs is now lucrative and major. I appreciate that windmills, in...
