Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (12 Jul 2018)

Graham Stringer: A recent paper by the International Solid Waste Association has shown that much of the plastic we declare as recycled, when it is exported to China and other Asian countries, ends up in rivers and accounts for at least 25% of the plastic pollution going into the seas. Is the Secretary of State aware of that, and what action does he intend to take to improve the situation?

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Graham Stringer: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. Earlier in the debate, I asked the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) why, if he was so keen on referendums, the Liberal Democrats—and he in particular—had not voted for a referendum on the Lisbon treaty in 2008. He said that they had. Since then I have had the opportunity to check the Official Report, and I can tell the...

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Graham Stringer: On this point at least, the Minister is making a great deal of sense. Does she agree that the Lib Dems are more interested in being good supporters of the EU than in being democrats? They are following the long tradition of the European Union, exemplified by referendums in Ireland. When the Irish people vote against various constitutional amendments, they keep having to vote until they get...

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Road Congestion (5 Jul 2018)

Graham Stringer: The chaos on Northern rail is apparent, but even had there not been the timetabling problems, the Northern rail and trans-Pennine franchises were let on a no-growth basis. Does the Secretary of State now realise that it was a mistake to let rail franchises on a no-growth basis and that it led to road congestion?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (5 Jul 2018)

Graham Stringer: In a deregulated bus system, local authorities have no control over routes and fares, and the amount of money for tendered services is being cut by 45%.

Will the Secretary of State give the Prime Minister a lesson in how the bus service system works?

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Graham Stringer: I will join the Secretary of State in the Lobby tonight because I think that the third runway is a piece of infrastructure of national importance that will benefit the whole nation. However, what it must not do is increase the disparity of wealth and income between the regions of this country and London and the south-east. Can the Secretary of State tell us what extra funds he will invest in...

Confidence in the Secretary of State for Transport (19 Jun 2018)

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Graham Stringer: Rather than praising the Lords for the number of amendments they have passed, would it not be more in line with Labour party philosophy and views to say that they have gone way beyond their constitutional remit in trying to overturn not only the decision of the electorate but the decisions of both the Labour party and Conservative party manifestos, which together received 82% to 84% of the...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Housing: Heating (1 May 2018)

Dieter Helm Energy Review — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Graham Stringer: It has been a good debate. I thank the Minister; I understand why she says she is reluctant to formally reply to the report in the short term. That is disappointing—an interim reply on the Government’s position would be useful. I am pro-renewables: I just think that we are at the stage where they have to answer the question of whether they can exist without subsidy. If they...

Dieter Helm Energy Review — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Graham Stringer: I appreciate the hon. Gentleman’s point, but does he agree that there has not been a huge technological advance in windmill technology over the past few years? The drop in costs probably represents how inefficient the energy market was previously, rather than an increase in wind turbines’ efficiency.

Dieter Helm Energy Review — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Graham Stringer: I beg to move, That this House has considered the cost of the energy review by Dieter Helm. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr McCabe. The motion has a slight ambiguity as to whether we are considering the cost of producing the report or the contents of the report itself, and I want to make it clear that we are considering the report itself, and not the £500 a day paid...

Dieter Helm Energy Review — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Graham Stringer: That is my reading of the report. I think Professor Helm goes slightly further than that—beyond the big six energy companies—and talks about the problems that have been caused by investing in costly new technologies that might have been cheaper to purchase later, but I essentially agree with the hon. Gentleman. The price of energy is important not just in the way that I have...
