Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Guto Bebb: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship this afternoon, Mr Paisley. I congratulate the hon. Member for Ynys Môn (Albert Owen) on a wide-ranging, detailed speech, which is nothing less than I would expect from him. He has always shown a great interest in the energy sector in Ynys Môn, and his enthusiasm and hard work in Anglesey is well understood by myself, from both...

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Guto Bebb: I believe that it was the hon. Member for Swansea West (Geraint Davies) who commented that good things are worth waiting for; that was certainly the case with the Welsh football team’s appearance at the European championships last year. I would rather have a good decision made in time than a rushed decision. This debate has highlighted the previous Labour Government’s decisions...

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Guto Bebb: I welcome that intervention, but the hon. Gentleman would be entirely unreasonable to state that the Hendry report included a comprehensive financial review. It is only fair for the Departments in question and the Government to take the issue seriously.

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Guto Bebb: That is the same question that I have been asked several times in Welsh questions and in this debate. The answer is the same: we will provide the right answer in due course, but it is important that we take our time to consider all the implications.

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Guto Bebb: No, I will not take another intervention on this issue. I would like to move on to the main elements of the debate—the issues raised by the hon. Member for Ynys Môn. As he rightly said, there has been an element of political knockabout towards the end of this debate, but it is important to highlight that we in Wales have an opportunity to contribute significantly to the energy mix...

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Guto Bebb: I highlight again, therefore, in response to the comments that this Government have not supported energy generation in Wales, that the facts speak for themselves. The opportunities for further development have been discussed by the hon. Member for Ynys Môn and other hon. Members. I turn particularly to Anglesey’s potential for nuclear. I think that everybody who is committed to the...

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Guto Bebb: I am surprised by that question, because the hon. Gentleman represents Swansea East—

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Guto Bebb: I apologise; I meant Swansea West. The hon. Gentleman should be aware that the Swansea city deal includes a number of projects, but the tidal lagoon is not one of them, although it has certainly contributed to the development of the city region. I would have expected him, as the local MP, to understand what was within the deal in question.

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Guto Bebb: Thank you, Mr Paisley. The tidal lagoon was not part of the Swansea region deal, as the hon. Member for Swansea West should have been aware.

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Guto Bebb: Good. I should also address the possibility of moving forward with the small modular reactor—as I said, we will visit Trawsfynydd very shortly—and the renewables issues that hon. Members have raised. Our track record on renewables is positive. I fully accept that wind farm costs have fallen quite significantly as a result of investments made, but I think the comments of the hon....

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Guto Bebb: There is this myth about the closure of mines by Conservative Governments. Will the hon. Gentleman confirm that more pits closed in Wales under the leadership of the Labour party, under Labour Governments, than under any Conservative Government?

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Guto Bebb: The hon. Gentleman asks whether I supported the project. The project in question was completed well before I was elected to this place.
