Charter for Budget Responsibility and Welfare Cap (10 Jan 2022)

John Redwood: Let me return to the subject of the debate, the charter for budget responsibility. I will not follow the Opposition into a debate on the general state of the UK economy, which I am sure we will have other opportunities to discuss. I see this as the Maastricht rules tribute debate. Every year under the Maastricht treaty, whether under Labour, coalition or Conservative Governments, we used to...

Charter for Budget Responsibility and Welfare Cap (10 Jan 2022)

John Redwood: It will be picked by people paid decent wages, and if that requires wages to go up a bit, I have no problem with that. It will also be picked by the growing mechanisation of agriculture. Our agriculture is not as fully mechanised in a lot of farms as it is possible to do when there are better capitalised farms, like those that have been growing more food elsewhere. How pessimistic that...

Charter for Budget Responsibility and Welfare Cap (10 Jan 2022)

John Redwood: Could my right hon. Friend comment on what difference, if any, he thinks it makes that a significant proportion of that debt is now owned by the Bank of England, which is 100% owned by the Government on behalf of the taxpayers?

Charter for Budget Responsibility and Welfare Cap (10 Jan 2022)

John Redwood: Further to that point, is my right hon. Friend not quoting a gross figure for the impact of a rise in interest rates, and quite a bit of that would be credited back to the Bank of England, which, in turn, could pay it back as a dividend to the Treasury?

Nuclear Energy (Financing) Bill: Clause 7 - Licence modifications: relevant licensee nuclear companies (10 Jan 2022)

John Redwood: I wish the Secretary of State, the Minister and the Bill every success. I think we might call this Secretary of State brave, because experience tells us that it is extremely difficult to land one of these really big projects and keep it to time and budget, and it is extremely difficult to get agreement to cheaper power. I am delighted that Ministers are motivated by the wish to have both more...

Nuclear Energy (Financing) Bill: Clause 7 - Licence modifications: relevant licensee nuclear companies (10 Jan 2022)

John Redwood: I would be delighted to see a mixture of renewables, so that the reliability issue is taken care of. The problem with wind is that it is erratic. In the industrial revolution, people tended to prefer water power over wind power because it was a bit more reliable. The hon. Lady must understand that, like me, she is answerable to constituents who will expect the lights to stay on throughout...

Nuclear Energy (Financing) Bill: Clause 7 - Licence modifications: relevant licensee nuclear companies (10 Jan 2022)

John Redwood: I have learned enough about energy to know that people produce figures that suit their case. I agree with my hon. Friend that we can say that wind energy is a lot dearer than its advocates suggest. It depends on whether we cost out the back-up power and the back-up arrangements. Obviously, once the windmills are turning they deliver very cheap power, but there is a lot of sunk cost to take...

Nuclear Energy (Financing) Bill: New Clause 1 - Report on proposed payments to a nuclear administrator or relevant licensee nuclear company (10 Jan 2022)

John Redwood: Is it not the case that, if the Government in power are faced with a big financial disaster from a very large project going horribly wrong and the company going bust, they will need flexibility to make the best decisions they can in the interests of the taxpayers and customers at the time, and it is quite difficult for us to pre-think that and embed it clearly in law?
