Gas Prices and Energy Suppliers (23 Sep 2021)

Ed Miliband: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy if he will make a statement on rising gas prices and the collapse of energy suppliers.

Gas Prices and Energy Suppliers (23 Sep 2021)

Ed Miliband: On Monday, I said to the Secretary of State that he was being far too complacent about the situation we are facing. Events since have, unfortunately, borne that out: complacent about the crisis in the market; complacent about the impact on families; and complacent about the cost of living crisis. He pretended on Monday and again today that it was normal for a number of suppliers to go down...

Gas Prices and Energy Suppliers (23 Sep 2021)

Ed Miliband: It kind of is.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (21 Sep 2021)

Ed Miliband: Families looking at soaring gas prices will be deeply worried about how they will pay their bills. One of the reasons UK households are particularly vulnerable is the Government’s failure on home insulation. Emissions from buildings are in fact higher today than in 2015. I am afraid to say that the Secretary of State’s record is abysmal, with the fiasco of the green homes grant, cuts to...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (21 Sep 2021)

Ed Miliband: It is a complete fiasco. The Secretary of State actually cut the money that was supposed to be allocated to homeowners. At least half a million families are going to be thrown into fuel poverty by the rise in energy prices. On top of that, along with national insurance rises, millions of families are facing a £1,000 a year cut in universal credit in just 10 days’ time. It is a Tory triple...

UK Gas Market (20 Sep 2021)

Ed Miliband: I thank the Secretary of State for his statement and agree that we should not be alarmist on the issue of security of supply, but I fear his statement was much too complacent on the price and economic impacts of the current situation. First, on continuity of supply, we support the Secretary of State taking all necessary measures to ensure that families and businesses continue to have access...

UK Gas Market (20 Sep 2021)

Ed Miliband: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

UK Gas Market (20 Sep 2021)

Ed Miliband: Yes, Mr Speaker. To follow on from the point made by the right hon. Member for Forest of Dean (Mr Harper), I submit that it really is not good practice for the Secretary of State to come to this House and say that he will make a joint statement with Ofgem this afternoon to set out the Government’s next steps, but refuse to tell Members what is in that joint statement. The point of his...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Business Premises: Ventilation (22 Jul 2021)

Ed Miliband: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, pursuant to the Answer of 14 July 2021 to Question 30321 on Business Premises: Coronavirus, what budget has been made available for enforcement activities in respect of business premises ventilation in each of the last 10 years; what enforcement action has been taken in respect of ventilation of business premises in each of the last 10...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Business Premises: Coronavirus (14 Jul 2021)

Ed Miliband: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what steps he is taking to help ensure adequate ventilation in businesses to reduce risk of covid-19 infection; what plans he has to issue guidance to businesses on ventilation of premises that (a) are and (b) are not open to the public; what standards or criteria his Department advises are used to plan and measure...

Cop26: Topical Questions (14 Jul 2021)

Ed Miliband: The Copenhagen summit of 2009 was undone by deep mistrust of the developed world by developing countries. Rather than learning from that, rich countries are still failing to deliver on the promised $100 billion of climate finance and the billions of vaccine doses still required by poorer countries. Yesterday, shamefully, the Prime Minister decided to press ahead with the cut in our aid...

Cop26: Topical Questions (14 Jul 2021)

Ed Miliband: The COP26 President knows that world leaders and others are asking him why the UK is the only G7 country cutting aid spending in the year that we are hosting the COP. He knows that delivering support to developing countries is not just morally right, but essential to building a coalition to pressure the world’s largest emitters. The most significant of those emitters is China. To have a...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (6 Jul 2021)

Ed Miliband: As my hon. Friend the Member for Greenwich and Woolwich (Matthew Pennycook) said earlier, the Climate Change Committee’s report card on the Government two weeks ago was devastating: “This defining year for the UK’s climate credentials has been marred by uncertainty and delay”. The Climate Change Committee says that “the policy is just not there”, and: “We continue to blunder...
