HMRC: Pitt Report (25 Jun 2008)

Orders of the Day: Energy from Renewable Resources (3 Jun 2008)

Paddy Tipping: I am grateful for the "however". May I reinforce the point that the renewables obligation has been a success, and that investment requires a sustainable, long-term framework?

Oral Answers to Questions — Innovation, Universities and Skills: Basford Hall (15 May 2008)

Paddy Tipping: I am delighted that the Under-Secretary is aware of the possible merger of New college with two other colleges in the Greater Nottingham conurbation to create a super-college.

Paddy Tipping: Did the Prime Minister share my concern that neither Opposition party leader noted the valuable initiatives in his statement about protecting the natural environment?

Orders of the Day: New Clause 4 — Tariffs for renewable energy (30 Apr 2008)

Paddy Tipping: The hon. Gentleman is right that the Minister was encouraging in Committee about feed-in tariffs.

Given that, surely careful thought is needed about how they can be introduced so that those things work together effectively.

Orders of the Day: New Clause 8 — Power to amend licence conditions: smart meters (30 Apr 2008)

Paddy Tipping: I suspect that the Minister is coming to the end of his speech, and I have been waiting for the answer to the question that I have wanted to ask.

Orders of the Day: New Clause 7 — Disposal of hazardous material (30 Apr 2008)
