Written Answers — Defence: Government Procurement Card (9 Nov 2011)

Chris Kelly: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many Government Procurement Card transactions were made by his Department's officials withdrawing cash from automated teller machines from 2006-07 to 2009-10; at what cost; and on which dates.

Opposition Day — [Un-allotted Day]: Solar Power (Feed-in Tariff) (23 Nov 2011)

Chris Kelly: Post-privatisation, more than a dozen utility companies provided a great deal of energy competition in this country. Sadly, under Labour, however, the energy market consolidated so that we now have, as the hon. Member for North Cornwall (Dan Rogerson) said, the big six. We also inherited feed-in tariffs in a shambles. It is my belief that the Government’s reform of FITs will protect our...

Opposition Day — [Un-allotted Day]: Solar Power (Feed-in Tariff) (23 Nov 2011)

Chris Kelly: I agree, but I believe that the consultation timetable is reasonable. I think that people will have time to plan and prepare, and to register installations that are currently under way. In September, 16,000 solar photovoltaic installations were registered, double the number registered in June. There are now 100,000 installations nationally, three times as many as were projected, and the costs...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (28 Nov 2011)

Chris Kelly: What assessment has the Minister made of the potential effect on UK defined-benefit pension schemes of the European Union proposal to review the institutions for occupational retirement directive and align it with the solvency II directive? Is not that just a further EU assault on the hard-pressed UK occupational pension sector, and the last thing we need? Will the Minister stand firm against...

Written Answers — Education: Runaway Children (28 Nov 2011)

Chris Kelly: To ask the Secretary of State for Education what steps he is taking to ensure that there is a national network to provide assistance for children who run away.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Nov 2011)

Chris Kelly: Will my right hon. Friend join me in condemning the outrageous attack on our embassy in Tehran yesterday and in paying tribute to our diplomatic staff serving in such difficult environments with such distinction?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Industrial Action (30 Nov 2011)

Chris Kelly: Further to the answer that my right hon. Friend gave the hon. Member for Birmingham, Northfield (Richard Burden), does he agree that it is disingenuous of militant trade union leaders to claim that there have been no recent negotiations when he has explicitly confirmed in his most illuminating statement that talks continued until only yesterday?

Chancellor of the Exchequer: Bank Lending and Credit (Businesses) (6 Dec 2011)

Chris Kelly: What steps he is taking to reduce the cost of bank lending and credit for businesses.

Chancellor of the Exchequer: Bank Lending and Credit (Businesses) (6 Dec 2011)

Chris Kelly: I thank my right hon. Friend for that answer. Can he confirm that guarantees under the Government’s national loan guarantee scheme are contingent liabilities, and so will have no effect on the country’s balance sheet or deficit?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: EU Council (12 Dec 2011)

Chris Kelly: My right hon. Friend might be interested to hear that I have recently visited businesses in Dudley South that are now exporting to markets such as Mexico, Brazil and the far east. Given the decline of the European Union’s share of world GDP and world trade over the past decade, does he agree that we need to ensure that we have robust relationships with the rising powers in Asia and south...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Dec 2011)

Chris Kelly: I commend my right hon. Friend for protecting our national interest by exercising the veto last Friday. The people of Dudley South thank him for it. The deal that he vetoed commits eurozone members to restricting structural deficits to below 0.5% of GDP. Did the Prime Minister appreciate that this is 16 times the UK structural deficit left by Labour?

Bill Presented — Local Government Finance Bill: Apprenticeships (19 Dec 2011)

Chris Kelly: I should start by declaring an interest as a non-executive director of my family’s business, which has a long-established apprenticeship scheme. Apprenticeships are a shining success in the first year and a half of the coalition Government. The figures paint a hugely pleasing picture, with the number of new apprenticeship starts in my constituency of Dudley South sharply up, as in most...

Written Answers — Culture Media and Sport: Arts Council England (10 Jan 2012)

Chris Kelly: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport (1) what recent assessment he has made of the value for money of the funding provided for The Public Arts Centre; (2) if he will assess the findings of the report by Anthony Blackstock entitled The Public: Lessons learned by Arts Council England.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Jan 2012)

Chris Kelly: As my hon. Friends have said earlier, many of my constituents, like theirs, work extremely hard for modest salaries. Given that many people think that the benefit cap should be set lower than £26,000, does my right hon. Friend agree that the Opposition are completely out of touch by voting to make it higher?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Informal European Council (31 Jan 2012)

Chris Kelly: I thank my right hon. Friend for his statement and for bringing greater clarity to Britain’s position, because these are complicated issues. My constituents in Dudley South were very grateful for his exercise of the veto last month, but is the ECJ, as an institution of the whole European Union, not now being unjustly used?

Opposition Day: Backbench Business — [Unallotted half day] — Metal Theft (7 Feb 2012)

Chris Kelly: My interest in this vital subject was sparked by the near-nightly chronicling of metal thefts in the black country by the excellent six-nights-a-week Express and Star newspaper, which is the most widely read regional paper in the country. As the global price of metals such as lead and copper has climbed higher due to surging demand in emerging economies such as China, so the number of reports...
