Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Coastal Areas (Public Access) (13 Mar 2008)

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill: Clause 79 (11 Mar 2008)

Paddy Tipping: Before my hon. Friend sits down, can he bring the Committee up to date with his thinking on social tariffs and the nature of the discussions that he has had with energy supply companies? With regard to the voluntary approach could he explain whether companies could do more, and if they do not do more, whether a legislative or mandatory approach would be necessary?

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill: Clause 79 (11 Mar 2008)

Paddy Tipping: It will not have escaped your notice, Mr. Amess, that new clauses 1, 20 and 21 all relate to smart meters. It will not have escaped the Minister’s notice, because he is as eagle-eyed as ever, that the majority of members of the Committee support smart meters. We will all consider with interest what the Minister says in responding to the debate. The hon. Member for Wealden, last week, and...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill: Clause 79 (11 Mar 2008)

Paddy Tipping: I have lost a few years. I am grateful. Perhaps I have not greyed as much as I thought. The hon. Lady makes an important point: we must move beyond a debate on visual display units, to one on the real technology. The focus of the argument has changed over the past 12 months, and she is right to say that VDUs could be a distraction. The view within the industry is that we should move to the...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill: Clause 79 (11 Mar 2008)

Paddy Tipping: Let us see what the Minister has to say when he responds to the debate. I should like him to set out clearly the Government’s position on smart metering and on timetables and signposts for the way forward. I should like us to have a realistic discussion about a market approach to installing smart meters, as opposed to a regional roll-out. That is enough on smart meters, but before my hon....

BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE (LISBON TREATY) (No. 7): Treaty of Lisbon (No. 8) — [8th Allotted Day] (27 Feb 2008)

Paddy Tipping: The hon. Gentleman said earlier that actions speak louder than words. Are not the important vehicles for environmental change—measures providing for clean water, how we look after our landscape, how we dispose of our waste, climate change—being driven by Europe? We ought to be supporting them rather than carping about today's debate.

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill: Clause 20 (26 Feb 2008)

Paddy Tipping: The new clause has real relevance to my constituents and those who work in the coal industry at Welbeck and Thorsby collieries in Nottinghamshire. Those miners are the most efficient in Europe and have reduced costs. Burning coal is important economically as is getting the cost right to enter the market. It is important to burn coal in an environmentally sensitive way, which is what the new...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill: Clause 18 (26 Feb 2008)

Paddy Tipping: I accept that that is a sensible approach, but there is currently one planning application—Kingsnorth in Kent—and the Minister will have to be careful how he talks about it. Presumably that application precedes the consultation and will not be affected by the statement that he has just made.

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill: Clause 3 (21 Feb 2008)

Paddy Tipping: This is an important discussion on a matter of principle. How can we have development while at the same time protecting the natural environment? How do we balance the two? These are important amendments, particularly, as the hon. Member for Northavon has said, with the introduction of long-anticipated legislation on the marine environment. I say to the hon. Member for Cheltenham that I do not...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill: Clause 3 (21 Feb 2008)

Paddy Tipping: I am not in the position to answer that question, because I have not seen the draft Bill. However, having followed such matters closely for a long time, I know that there have been substantive discussions between DEFRA and DBERR. My hon. Friend the Member for South Thanet will remind us that the Department for Transport has been involved fundamentally in the preparation of this Bill. It is a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (19 Feb 2008)
