Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Oct 2017)

Rachel Reeves: At the general election, both main parties committed to an energy price cap and the Government have now published a Bill for which I believe there is strong cross-party support, so will the 14 million customers on standard variable tariffs actually see their energy prices come down this winter, and if not, when will the Prime Minister get on the statute book legislation to ensure that this is...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Rachel Reeves: What a gentleman! Thank you very much. The Minister is setting out two alternatives: the ONR taking responsibility or our staying in Euratom. However, there is a third way forward—a third way—which is to seek a transition period in which we remain in Euratom and then go for some sort of associate membership of Euratom. Are the Government exploring that opportunity, which would...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Rachel Reeves: I do not think that anybody debated or considered leaving Euratom, or voted to leave it on 23 June 2016—

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Rachel Reeves: Except the hon. Gentleman. However, we are where we are, and the Government have made their decision. I urge them not to abandon what I and many hon. Members regard as a sensible approach: to pursue a transition period during which we stay under Euratom’s auspices, and then seek some sort of associate membership so that we do not have to recreate everything that the Minister and others...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Rachel Reeves: My hon. Friend speaks with great knowledge. He led the Westminster Hall debate and has a constituency interest. He is absolutely right, and some of the questions I will pose later are about how we can be sure that the ONR has the capacity and the capability to take on the responsibility that the Government will pass on to it. The Bill does not resolve all the safeguarding issues. It does not...

Rachel Reeves: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Rachel Reeves: The Secretary of State says that he speaks regularly to the experts in the sector and industry; can he give an example of anybody in the industry who would prefer the powers to be transferred to the ONR rather than for us to stay in Euratom? Is there anyone?

Iran: Vauxhall (Redundancies) (16 Oct 2017)

Rachel Reeves: Eighty per cent. of the cars produced at Ellesmere Port are for mainland European and 75% of the parts to make the cars come from mainland Europe. What assurances can the Minister give that, when we leave the European Union, there will not be additional customs checks or barriers to trade, because if there are, more jobs will inevitably be lost, not just at Ellesmere Port, but elsewhere in...

Race Disparity Audit: Bombardier (10 Oct 2017)

Rachel Reeves: I join other hon. Members in saying that I hope this dispute is resolved as quickly as possible in the interests of everybody in Northern Ireland who works for Bombardier or in the supply chain. May I just pick up on a couple of points the Secretary of State made in his statement? First, he said that the Prime Minister had discussed the matter twice with President Trump to ask the US...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Taylor Review (12 Sep 2017)

Rachel Reeves: Will the Minister join me in welcoming the Supreme Court’s ruling that employment tribunal fees for workers are illegal? Will she now accept that it is the Government’s responsibility to end the use of bogus self-employment by companies that seek to avoid paying national insurance and giving workers the rights that they deserve? Will she commit to introducing the necessary...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Renewable Energy Projects (6 Sep 2017)

Rachel Reeves: What progress the Government have made on delivering renewable energy projects in Wales.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Renewable Energy Projects (6 Sep 2017)

Rachel Reeves: Following on from questions from the hon. Member for Tiverton and Honiton (Neil Parish) and my hon. Friends the Members for Ynys Môn (Albert Owen) and for Neath (Christina Rees), the issue of the tidal lagoon does need a response from the Government. It is eight months since the review. Will the Minister say now when the Government will publish their response? There is a very real risk...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (18 Jul 2017)

Rachel Reeves: Personal contract purchase plans for financing cars have gone up by 394% in the past five years, and the Governor of the Bank of England has said that we are failing to learn the lessons of the past when it comes to easy credit. What action is the Chancellor taking to ensure that lending is affordable and does not pose a risk to the wider economy?

Euratom Membership — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

Euratom Membership — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

Rachel Reeves: I thank my hon. Friend for securing the debate. I think he is about to touch on the heart of the issue. If we leave Euratom—and the uncertainty about that in the meantime—that risks high-paid, high-skilled jobs going overseas, which we cannot afford right now. Our membership of Euratom is key for the future of our civil nuclear defence industry.

Taylor Review: Working Practices (11 Jul 2017)

Rachel Reeves: Matthew Taylor said today that he wants employers to pay national insurance for people with whom they have a controlling and supervisory relationship. Do the Government plan to implement that aspect of the Taylor review, and can the Minister reassure workers that the Government do not plan to U-turn on their U-turn and increase national insurance for the genuinely self-employed?
