Climate Change Bill [ Lords] (Programme) (No. 2): Clause 25 — UK Domestic Effort (18 Nov 2008)

Colin Challen: I wonder whether the hon. Gentleman's remarks should be addressed in some way—perhaps they are—to the Climate Change Committee, which will be protective of its independence. If it is to do its job seriously, he should not worry too much. Perhaps we will know the answer to the questions posed on 1 December. I ask him whether this debate is the right place to over-egg the pudding, or does...

Climate Change Bill [ Lords] (Programme) (No. 2): Clause 25 — UK Domestic Effort (18 Nov 2008)

Colin Challen: Does my hon. Friend agree that our concern is perhaps not so much with the level of the cap—I would prefer a high one—but about the quality of the credits that can be bought?

Having the ceiling imposes a whole range of...

Orders of the Day: Clause 20 — Terms and conditions (18 Nov 2008)

Colin Challen: I completely agree with everything that my hon. Friend says. We want that certainty, and in the near term we will now see it for people who want to invest their own money in small schemes. That is a brilliant step forward. The 5 MW maximum that will be in the Bill, since there is no other amendment, is a huge advance. However, the certainty that that brings will last only for a certain...
