Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Local Enterprise Partnerships: Finance (23 Oct 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: In the July 2018 Review, Strengthened LEPs, Government bolstered the rules that each Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) must follow to ensure greater transparency on how public money is spent. We continue to review the effectiveness of the assurance and transparency model that we have in place for LEPs. The National Local Growth Assurance Framework published in January 2019 provides guidance...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Local Enterprise Partnerships: Solent (23 Oct 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: The National Local Growth Assurance Framework is published by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government. This Framework sets out Government’s guidance on the assurance requirements for local growth funding as well as guidance for LEPs on carrying out value for money assessments on the funding it provides. The Solent LEP’s Local Assurance Framework is published on its...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Business (22 Oct 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: Holding answer received on 21 October 2019 We continue to monitor and work closely with businesses across the country to help ensure they are fully prepared for when the UK leaves the EU and are actively considering how best to support them in the run up to and immediately after Brexit. The Government has been clear that should there be no deal, we would support the economy through...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: UK Trade with EU (22 Oct 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: In the event of the UK leaving the EU without a withdrawal agreement, the Government will introduce a new public database of conformity assessment bodies that are able to assess products against UK regulations, called UKMCAB. UKMCAB will be publicly available on exit day. UK Notified Bodies form an important part of our economy and as such under the new regulatory regime they will...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: High Speed 2 (22 Oct 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: The independent Oakervee review will advise the Government on High Speed 2, including potential business benefits and how it should proceed. The hon. Lady will understand that I would not want to prejudice those findings.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: High Speed 2 (22 Oct 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: The hon. Lady mentions the CBI. Both the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, and the Mayor of Birmingham, Andy Street, who sits on the panel conducting the review, have said it is important that we kick the tyres on value for money, but it is also important to make such representations to ensure that the committee gets a full view of the business benefits of HS2.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: High Speed 2 (22 Oct 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: I do not think there is any danger of that, Mr Speaker. My hon. Friend raises an important point, which is why the Prime Minister has pledged to fund the Leeds to Manchester route and has accelerated those plans with a deal in the autumn of 2019, with billions of pounds going into Northern Powerhouse Rail, and has of course set up Transport for the North.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: High Speed 2 (22 Oct 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: The hon. Gentleman makes a powerful point, although his colleague, the hon. Member for Manchester Central (Lucy Powell), was shaking her head, so there is clearly division on the benefits of HS2. That is why we have an independent review to tell us which way we should proceed.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: High Speed 2 (22 Oct 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: That is certainly a consideration for the review.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Businesses: Dartford (22 Oct 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: I am pleased to say that Dartford has been shortlisted for the future high streets fund to renew its town centre. This will build on £4.3 million support already allocated from the South East local enterprise partnership growth fund.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Businesses: Dartford (22 Oct 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: I fully appreciate the concerns of local businesses with regard to the uncertainty over Swanscombe peninsular. My Department works very closely with the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government. I will gladly raise this with the Minister for the Northern Powerhouse and Local Growth, my right hon. Friend the Member for Rossendale and Darwen (Jake Berry), when I see him tomorrow.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Electric Vehicle Technology (22 Oct 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: We have just announced up to £l billion of new funding to advance the next generation of cutting-edge automotive technologies. I am sure the House would want to know how that funding is being used. Part of it is being used by the supply chain for large-scale production of electric vehicles so that we scale up the production in the UK, and of course part of it will be used for vehicle...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Electric Vehicle Technology (22 Oct 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: I am very pleased to hear that the London Electric Vehicle Company had record sales in September. I spoke to the CEO recently and was very impressed with their capability. I understand their sales have grown month on month since April. They have capacity to produce 20,000 vehicles a year and his message to this House when I spoke to him was, “Let’s get Brexit done.”

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Electric Vehicle Technology (22 Oct 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: The hon. Gentleman is right to raise this issue. Our grant scheme and the £400 million charging infrastructure investment fund will see thousands more electric vehicle charging points installed across the whole of the UK.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Electric Vehicle Technology (22 Oct 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: My right hon. Friend raises an important point. Different touch points with consumers are important. For example, when people go for a replacement tax on their car, they should be immediately alerted to the fact that, instead of paying that tax, they could pay for a new electric vehicle.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Electric Vehicle Technology (22 Oct 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: The hon. Lady just reeled off a list, so I will reel off my own list of good news, starting with the fact that Government announced £1 billion to increase the capacity for electric car development. On 10 October, Nissan launched the new Juke model after investing £100 million in Sunderland. On 26 September, Jaguar Land Rover announced its latest investment in the Gaydon facility, close to...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (22 Oct 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: I think the hon. Gentleman would know that we already have agreements in place so that planes can continue flying. If he votes for the deal today, we will be in a much better place to leave in an orderly way.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (22 Oct 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: The hon. Lady and I are set to meet on 29 October, and I am meeting the all-party group on steel the day before. I will do everything I can to work with Tata to see whether we can find a future for the steelworks.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Iron and Steel: Manufacturing Industries (21 Oct 2019)

Nadhim Zahawi: We recognise that industrial consumers currently pay higher electricity prices than elsewhere in the EU. No specific assessment has been made on the impact of electricity price differential on UK steel sector’s competitiveness. The ability of our steel industry to compete globally and across Europe is a priority for this Government. We therefore provide electricity cost compensation and...
