Space Industry Bill [Lords]: Regulations: general (6 Feb 2018)

Karl Turner: I thank the Government Front-Bench team for the spirit of co-operation in which the Bill has been handled, and I thank the Minister’s officials, who have worked very hard on it as well. I also thank my colleagues in the other place, where the Bill began, for their very valuable work. They secured a number of important concessions, including the removal of Henry VIII powers, and pressed...

Space Industry Bill [Lords]: Publication of regulations (6 Feb 2018)

Karl Turner: I rise to speak to amendment 4, which I tabled, as well as the remaining new clauses and amendments. Amendment 4 would give clarity to the UK’s space industry. As it stands, the Bill makes no provision to ensure that the industry works with the Government to create the regulatory framework that it so badly needs. The amendment would increase the focus on making the UK commercially...

Space Industry Bill [Lords]: Publication of regulations (6 Feb 2018)

Karl Turner: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point. He is right to say that 40,000 jobs rely on such a measure. Colleagues on both sides of the House have made the point that investment may be deterred if that is not in place. New clause 4 deals with this very important issue of liability. The issue has been raised at every stage of the Bill’s consideration, both here and in the other place....

Space Industry Bill [Lords]: Potential impact of leaving the European Union on the United Kingdom’s space industry (6 Feb 2018)

Karl Turner: New clause 2 would ensure that Parliament is kept up to date on negotiations between the UK and the European Union in regard to the UK space industry. New clause 2 differs very slightly from new clause 1, which was tabled by the hon. Member for Oxford West and Abingdon (Layla Moran). Both new clauses have the same aims. New clause 2 asks the Government to produce a summary of any discussions...

Space Industry Bill [Lords]: Potential impact of leaving the European Union on the United Kingdom’s space industry (6 Feb 2018)

Karl Turner: The right hon. Gentleman makes an excellent point. I was about to say that I do not intend to divide the House on new clause 2, but I hope the Minister takes his point on board.

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill (Programme) (No. 2): Transmission of data relating to charge points (29 Jan 2018)

Karl Turner: The Opposition Front-Bench team are supportive of the Government’s new clause 1 and the consequential amendments. In Committee, some of my colleagues and I tabled amendments to ensure that planning and consultation between the Government, National Grid and electricity distribution operators took place in order for this policy to work. The new clause enables regulations to be made for...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill (Programme) (No. 2): Transmission of data relating to charge points (29 Jan 2018)

Karl Turner: The strategy has to address the issue of remote areas—that is essential. In Committee, the then Minister gave assurances that it would. We now know, of course, that the strategy will be published in March. I would like to press this Minister on how security will be ensured in regards to the transmission of data from charge points. That issue was brought up repeatedly in Committee, and...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill (Programme) (No. 2): Transmission of data relating to charge points (29 Jan 2018)

Karl Turner: I think they will be an integral part of these sites. That is how things would have to work in order to be practical. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Warwick and Leamington (Matt Western) on tabling new clause 3 and put on record my personal support, and that of our Front-Bench team, for the new clause. New clause 3 focuses on public transport and commercial vehicles, but it...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill (Programme) (No. 2): Transmission of data relating to charge points (29 Jan 2018)

Karl Turner: I very much agree with the hon. Gentleman. There were many suggestions in Committee that we call the charging points Hayes hooks. The former Minister, the right hon. Member for South Holland and The Deepings, was keen for schools and colleges to get involved in some sort of national competition on the design.

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill (Programme) (No. 2): Transmission of data relating to charge points (29 Jan 2018)

Karl Turner: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for his intervention. In Committee, we discussed making the charging points as recognisable as telephone boxes. That is essential. I hope that the Minister has taken on board what was said in Committee and appreciates the work that the right hon. Member for South Holland and The Deepings did on the Bill. It would be eminently sensible for the Government to...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill (Programme) (No. 2): Transmission of data relating to charge points (29 Jan 2018)

Karl Turner: I assure the right hon. Gentleman that I do not intend to push anything to a vote. We agree with what the right hon. Member for South Holland and The Deepings said in Committee, which I just read out, and believe that the Government should take this opportunity to set out in the Bill their strategy for doing that.

Heathrow Airport: Public Consultation (24 Jan 2018)

Karl Turner: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Henry. I congratulate the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) on securing this important debate. He has been a long-standing campaigner on Heathrow expansion. The Labour party supports the expansion of airport capacity in the south-east, subject to our four tests being met. However, the Government’s draft airports...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Fuels: Renewable Sources (18 Jan 2018)

Karl Turner: Fuel providers have stated that they require a Government mandate to introduce E10 fuel to avoid a breach of competition law. Will the Minister reconsider the possibility of mandating E10 fuel? If not, will his departmental lawyers work with fuel providers to overcome this legal hurdle?

Space Industry Bill [Lords] (15 Jan 2018)

Karl Turner: This has been a good debate, with some good and knowledgeable contributions. Members rightly made strong bids for their constituencies as potential candidates for spaceports, and I commend them for that. Given the time allowed, I do not intend to refer to every speech, but it would be remiss if I did not mention at least the right hon. Member for South Holland and The Deepings (Mr Hayes),...

Gatwick Airport: Growth and Noise Mitigation (10 Jan 2018)

Karl Turner: It is always a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Christopher. I congratulate the hon. Member for Tonbridge and Malling (Tom Tugendhat) on securing this important debate. The aviation sector is one of Britain’s success stories and, as the UK’s second biggest airport, Gatwick is an important factor in that. Gatwick contributes £5.3 billion to UK GDP, as well as...
