World Energy Outlook 2020 - Question (20 Oct 2020)

Lord West of Spithead: My Lords, nothing in the IEA’s World Energy Outlook 2020 changes the need for the UK to have a viable nuclear power sector producing about 30% of the future daytime electricity demand of 80 gigawatts by 2050, when, of course, we are planning to have net zero emissions. The provision of nuclear power needs planning and a clear programme of build and provision. That cannot be done at the last...

Rolls-Royce - Question (14 Oct 2020)

Lord West of Spithead: My Lords, in August, Rolls-Royce reported a first-quarter underlying operating loss of £1.7 billion, £1.2 billion of which was to do with civil aerospace and is Covid related. That is presumably why it has broken an agreement it had with the UK Government and moved work promised to UK workers to Singapore.

Fleet Solid Support Ships - Question (7 Oct 2020)

Lord West of Spithead: I thank the noble Baroness for her Answer. I am delighted that the Secretary of State has classed Royal Fleet Auxiliary vessels as military. These three ships should have been ordered more than three years ago. I hope that the integrated review is concluding that our outward-facing island nation needs a maritime strategy as a basis for its national security. Will the Minister confirm that a...

Covid-19: Transport Industry - Question (6 Oct 2020)

Lord West of Spithead: My Lords, the Minister will be aware that many maritime businesses have worked incredibly hard to keep supply chains open and goods flowing during the Covid crisis.

Will the Minister confirm that the Government will...

Energy White Paper - Question (28 Sep 2020)

Lord West of Spithead: My Lords, the Minister is well aware of my passion for ships and the need for the Royal Navy to have more, and also my huge support for a sensible nuclear power industry. But I am also delighted that it appears that hydrogen is being considered for future power. Will the Minister confirm that, in the energy White Paper, hydrogen is being addressed and that the supply and demand sides of the...

Oil and Gas Industry - Question (22 Sep 2020)

Lord West of Spithead: My Lords, the Oil and Gas Authority is only just beginning to take account of the UK’s statutory target for net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050. Official projections from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy take no account of that requirement. Our nation is sleepwalking into an energy crisis of major proportions. National daytime electricity demand is...

Small and Medium-sized Enterprises: Public Procurement Contracts - Question (7 Sep 2020)

Lord West of Spithead: My Lords, one area where there is a ready-made opportunity for boosting our industrial output and supporting struggling —and, indeed, collapsing—SMEs is defence. The Prime Minister recently stated that our nation requires “a shipbuilding industry and Royal Navy that reflect the importance of the seas to our security and prosperity.” Hurrah for that, but our shipyards—and...
