Trade Deals: Parliamentary Scrutiny (12 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Elliott, I believe for the first time. I congratulate the hon. Member for Totnes (Anthony Mangnall) on securing this debate. Much of the political energy of this generation of politicians has been consumed by the fallout from the Brexit referendum in 2016. I remember visiting Washington with a cross-party delegation prior to the...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Question (12 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with reference to the Government's announcement on plans to help cut energy bills for businesses on 21 September, for what reasons he decided (a) to provide an additional payment of £100 to households across the UK who are not able to receive support for their heating costs through the Energy Price Guarantee and (b)...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Heating: Government Assistance (12 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with reference to the £100 of support for households which do not use main gas to heat their homes announced by the Government on 21 September 2022, whether that payment is a one off payment to cover the duration of the Government's energy price guarantee.

Energy Costs in Wales — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (11 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: The Minister mentioned the IMF report. Did the same report not say that, actually, inflation in the UK will be among the highest in Europe? There is perhaps only one country—Slovakia, I think—with a higher inflation rate. People will be hit far harder here.

Energy Costs in Wales — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (11 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: Will the Minister give way?

Energy Costs in Wales — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (11 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: The hon. Gentleman mentioned the generosity of the UK Government’s support scheme, but they have to be slightly careful about that, do they not? It is partially a result of electricity prices in the UK being the second highest in Europe—only the Czech Republic has higher. For the last five years, electricity prices in the UK have been far higher. Within the UK, electricity prices in south...

Energy Costs in Wales — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (11 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: The hon. Lady mentioned Ynni Cymru, which is something I have pushed for many a year, and I am glad that it is embedded in the partnership agreement. The Leader of the Opposition announced in his conference speech that there will be a GB Energy model based on Ynni Cymru. Can the hon. Lady explain how those two bodies will interact? There will be a Labour Government in a few years—there is...

Energy Costs in Wales — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (11 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: The hon. Gentleman is making an important point. There is a big role to play for the Welsh Government and, indeed, the partnership agreement between Plaid Cymru and the Welsh Government. My cursory reading of the agreement is that it contains nothing specifically on energy efficiency. Of course, the agreement was composed before the crisis. I hope there are mechanisms in the agreement whereby...

Energy Costs in Wales — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (11 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: Can I take the hon. Lady back to the windfall tax? I do not think a windfall tax would pay for all the energy schemes, but it would definitely make a significant contribution to the public intervention that will be required. The reality is that even the oil executives are mildly in favour of it: BP announced a few months ago that a windfall tax would not make any difference to its investment...

Energy Costs in Wales — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (11 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: I am grateful that the right hon. Gentleman raised this point because I asked a written question on this issue and was referred to an answer to another Member. That answer was not particularly clear to me, so when my constituents ask me how they will receive the support I am unable to provide that answer. I am sure that, like me, the right hon. Gentleman would like the Minister to clarify...

Energy Costs in Wales — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (11 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: I am extremely grateful to the hon. Lady for securing the debate and for the very important points that she is making. It is right that we debate this issue. One of the big issues that we face is that the UK is not particularly self-sufficient when it comes to electricity generation; we are the second largest net importer of electricity in Europe. Meanwhile, Wales produces double the...
