Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill (5 Feb 2008)

Paddy Tipping: Energy prices have been pretty low for a decade, but now they are rising very steeply indeed and clearly that will have consequences for trade unionists. There is little in the Bill about fuel poverty. Should there be and what should it be?

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill (5 Feb 2008)

Paddy Tipping: Does the EEF have a view on smart meters?

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill (5 Feb 2008)

Paddy Tipping: Can I ask Sara Vaughan, particularly, about the position at Kingsnorth, about which there was some press comment last week when I found myself defending you. What is the position on CCS at Kingsnorth?

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill (5 Feb 2008)

Paddy Tipping: Following Brian Binley’s point, what will ultimately drive carbon capture and storage and all the new technologies is a high and stable price for carbon. In the nuclear White Paper, there is a curious phrase that says we would prefer a European scheme through the ETS. The White Paper did, however, speculate that, in the short term, there might be a national scheme. What are your views on...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill (5 Feb 2008)

Paddy Tipping: I suppose I am asking you whether 2012 is too late for you to make the investment decision.

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill (5 Feb 2008)

Paddy Tipping: Can I switch to the point that Steve Webb was pursuing on the social tariffs? Unfortunately, Mr. Neville, we did not get a chance to  hear Centrica’s view, but I think that I am right in saying that you probably do more in terms of social tariffs than any other company. That puts you at a competitive disadvantage, does it not?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Parliamentary Candidates (Expenditure) (29 Jan 2008)

Paddy Tipping: Does the Lord Chancellor accept that it will not be easy to impose spending caps of the type advocated, and that fraud and avoidance will be relatively easy? Given that, will he work hard to bring forward a package of proposals supported throughout the House that recognises the historical link between trade unions and the Labour party?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Bingo (24 Jan 2008)

Paddy Tipping: Last autumn, I had the very great privilege of calling the numbers at the Byron bingo and social club in Hucknall. Will the Minister listen to the concerns of staff and customers, at the Byron and across the sector, about the effects that the smoking ban and the taxation system have had on the industry's future? Will she look closely at bringing forward proposals in the Budget to help secure...

Orders of the Day: Energy Bill (22 Jan 2008)

Paddy Tipping: The two drivers of energy policy have traditionally been security of supply and the challenge of climate change, but there is a third important pillar, which is affordability. In reality, the liberalised energy market has served us well. In comparative terms, energy costs in the United Kingdom are still relatively low. But all householders are facing increases in their bills, in some cases by...

Orders of the Day: Energy Bill (22 Jan 2008)

Paddy Tipping: Of course we could, and it is important, as my hon. Friend the Member for Nottingham, South (Alan Simpson) said earlier, to have the right sort of smart meters—those that measure input as well as output—as a move towards microgeneration. Smart meters are relevant not just to electricity, but to gas and water too. I hope that the Government will think hard during the passage of this Bill,...

Orders of the Day: Energy Bill (22 Jan 2008)

Paddy Tipping: My hon. Friend is a distinguished commentator on the coal industry, and he is clearly correct. Coal offers us flexibility and an opportunity for security of supply. It is one of the most flexible ways of providing electricity, so we clearly need to consider gasification. All I say to the Minister is this: if we believe that coal—including indigenous coal—has a future, we should not argue...

Orders of the Day: Energy Bill (22 Jan 2008)

Paddy Tipping: Of course, I agree. However, the White Paper is uncertain on that point. We need a high and stable price for carbon. The White Paper acknowledges that we do not currently have that, and suggests that the UK should introduce it. It is also clear that the costs of decommissioning have not yet been worked out. As the White Paper acknowledges, unless there is certainty about that, investment will...

Orders of the Day: Energy Bill (22 Jan 2008)

Paddy Tipping: Does the hon. Gentleman not think it important that we examine seriously the environmental concerns about the Severn barrage? There are good reasons to support the project, but we also need to examine the negatives.
