Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (30 Apr 2019)

Peter Aldous: England is currently the only home nation that provides no central Government investment to improve domestic energy-efficiency. To address this deficit, will the Secretary of State take up the Committee on Fuel Poverty’s proposal for the introduction of a new clean growth fuel poverty challenge fund?

Climate Change Policy (23 Apr 2019)

Peter Aldous: The UK has a good and proven track record in meeting the challenges of climate change, from passing the Climate Change Act in 2008 to the emergence of a world-leading industry in offshore wind, which is bringing significant benefits to my constituency. That said, we can do more. Does my right hon. Friend agree that we need to dramatically reduce carbon emissions from our existing housing...

Loan Charge (11 Apr 2019)

Peter Aldous: My constituents who have been badly affected by the loan charge are not wealthy people, and they were doing only what their advisers and employers encouraged and perhaps even coerced them to do. They had no reason to doubt the validity of the advice they received, and they were led to believe that everything was above board and within the law. They are now being asked to pay tax for periods a...

Petition - TV Licences for over 75S: Lowestoft High Street: Revitalisation (10 Apr 2019)

Peter Aldous: I am pleased to have secured this debate because businesses on the high street in Lowestoft are really struggling at present, and there is an urgent need for Government, both national and local, to work with the private sector to address the problem. If we do not do so, more businesses will close, more jobs will be lost and more livelihoods will be jeopardised. While there are specific...

Petition - TV Licences for over 75S: Lowestoft High Street: Revitalisation (10 Apr 2019)

Peter Aldous: I am very much homing in on the issues and challenges in Lowestoft, but the problems are faced all around these islands, from the very east which I represent to the very west which the hon. Gentleman represents. Business needs to adapt, and Government have a role to play in addressing the problems. He mentioned business rates, and I will come on to that. The challenges that the high street...

Petition - TV Licences for over 75S: Lowestoft High Street: Revitalisation (10 Apr 2019)

Peter Aldous: My hon. Friend makes the point that coastal towns face particular challenges. There is so much in Cleethorpes that is similar to Lowestoft, and the public and private sectors need to get together as a team to address those problems. I sense that we have not been able to achieve that previously, but the clock is ticking alarmingly close to midnight, so we must get on and create that team.

Petition - TV Licences for over 75S: Lowestoft High Street: Revitalisation (10 Apr 2019)

Peter Aldous: I will come on to discuss the variety of funds that we will be able to dip into, so I thank my hon. Friend for his intervention.

Petition - TV Licences for over 75S: Lowestoft High Street: Revitalisation (10 Apr 2019)

Peter Aldous: I am pleased to hear that the gospel of Ipswich Town extends throughout these islands. They kick off at Brentford in about 15 minutes’ time. The hon. Gentleman is right about the importance of teamwork between councils and the private sector. As my hon. Friend the Member for Cleethorpes (Martin Vickers) said, they need to work together. We need to grasp that nettle. East Suffolk Council...

Further Education Funding — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (2 Apr 2019)

Peter Aldous: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Roger. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Gloucester (Richard Graham) and the hon. Member for Scunthorpe (Nic Dakin) on their leadership and on securing the debate. Putting the funding of further education on a sustainable, financially secure and long-term footing is vital for those young people who will reap the dividends,...

Further Education Funding — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (2 Apr 2019)

Peter Aldous: I will carry on, if that is okay. We are on the cusp of technological change and the advent of the fourth industrial revolution, and we are transitioning to a low-carbon economy. FE has a vital role to play in that by providing the skilled workforce that the UK needs to be a global leader. In Lowestoft, the energy skills centre is being built at East Coast College. It will provide students...

Beer Taxation and Pubs (28 Mar 2019)

Peter Aldous: Small brewers like St Peter’s in my constituency have a proven track record in exporting their beers all around the world. They could expand, open up new markets and create more jobs if export volumes were excluded from small brewer’s relief. Does my hon. Friend agree that the Treasury should consider this exclusion as part of their review of small brewer’s relief?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Fisheries Policy (28 Mar 2019)

Peter Aldous: What plans he has for fisheries policy after the UK leaves the EU.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Fisheries Policy (28 Mar 2019)

Peter Aldous: I am grateful to the Secretary of State for setting the scene, but will the Government support the amendment to the Fisheries Bill tabled by me and colleagues that will promote the fairer distribution of fishing quota, more environmentally sustainable fishing methods and a much better and greater opportunity to revitalise coastal communities such as Lowestoft?

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (27 Mar 2019)

Peter Aldous: What we are doing this evening is what we should have done a long time ago, at the outset of this process. Something of the magnitude of Brexit has never been attempted before anywhere else in the world. We should have put down the foundations before laying the bricks. That said, my favoured course is to support the withdrawal agreement that the Government have negotiated, and if there is...

Tourism: East of England — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (20 Mar 2019)

Peter Aldous: My hon. Friend is making a persuasive case for Colchester. I could do likewise for Lowestoft. Does he agree that for the east of England as a whole we should adopt a more comprehensive rather than piecemeal approach to showcasing our glories?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Mar 2019)

Peter Aldous: The announcement this week of the closure of Coes of Lowestoft, following on from those of Beales, Argos and Body Shop, highlights the challenges facing the high street in Lowestoft. To address these, Waveney District Council is submitting an expression of interest to the future high streets fund, which I anticipate will be heavily over-subscribed. I acknowledge the various initiatives the...
