College Funding — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (21 Jan 2019)

Peter Aldous: The hon. Gentleman just made an interesting point, but in coastal communities such as the one that I represent, which includes Lowestoft Sixth Form College and East Coast College, colleges are vital for the link from education to the workplace and in improving social mobility. We probably need a change in mind-set in this country with regard to how we fund post-16 education.

Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace (17 Jan 2019)

Peter Aldous: I congratulate the hon. Member for Liverpool, Wavertree (Luciana Berger), the right hon. Member for North Norfolk (Norman Lamb) and my hon. Friend the Member for Plymouth, Moor View (Johnny Mercer) on securing this debate, and the Backbench Business Committee on granting it. For many, first aid in the workplace has too often in the past been a green box that is kept in the corner and...

Environmental Audit Committee (17 Jan 2019)

Peter Aldous: I commend the hon. Lady and her Committee for this excellent report. May I also mention the excellent work that is done by the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science, which is based in my constituency to both identify the problems and come up with solutions? Based on its work, the UK can be a global pioneer in the sustainable stewardship of our seas?

Nuclear Update (17 Jan 2019)

Peter Aldous: Sizewell C is an important component of the world leading low-carbon energy sector emerging along the north Suffolk coast. Can the Secretary of State confirm that the Government remain committed to Sizewell C and to negotiating a value-for-money deal with EDF?

Leaving the EU: European Union (Withdrawal) Act (14 Jan 2019)

Peter Aldous: Like most of coastal Britain, Waveney and Lowestoft voted to leave. There was a variety of reasons why individuals made that choice, but I sense that many were sending an overarching message down to us here in the Westminster bubble. Yes, economically, Britain as a whole has done well over the past 40 to 50 years, but during that time coastal Britain has struggled. In Lowestoft, the fishing...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Supply Chains (8 Jan 2019)

Peter Aldous: What recent steps he has taken to support businesses and their supply chains.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Supply Chains (8 Jan 2019)

Peter Aldous: I am grateful to the Minister for that reply. Fabrication yards in UK ports have supply chains that extend throughout the UK, but there is real concern for their future. Can the Minister confirm that the oil and gas and the offshore wind sector deals will make provision for realising the full potential of those yards and their supply chains?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (8 Jan 2019)

Peter Aldous: With the high street undergoing a period of significant upheaval, will the Secretary of State confirm that he is working closely with the Chancellor and the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government to ensure that high street businesses are able to compete on a level taxation playing field with their online competitors?

Peter Aldous: What assessment the Government have made of the effectiveness of universal credit in helping people into work.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Helping People into Work (7 Jan 2019)

Peter Aldous: Given that the planned objective of universal credit is to move people closer to and into the workplace, can the Secretary of State confirm that empirical, rather than anecdotal, evidence is being compiled on a national basis, and that it will be made available for public scrutiny so that the necessary adaptations can be made to ensure that universal credit ultimately achieves its goal?

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Sea Fish Industry Levies (17 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: New clause 8 relates to the West Lothian question set to fish, which we debated in some detail last Tuesday on amendments 15 to 19. I tabled the new clause as a probing amendment at that stage, and at this stage I do not wish to move it. New Clause 11

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Power of Marine Management Organisation to impose charges (17 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: I will speak briefly, because this amendment covers the issues that I addressed in my previous two amendments, and which the hon. Member for Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport also referred to. As far as the future funding of science is concerned, I was reasonably content with the response that the Minister provided. I look forward to seeing the further details, to which he referred, on Report....

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Meaning of “chargeable person” and “unauthorised catch of sea fish” (17 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: I am grateful for the Minister’s clarification of that issue, particularly that IFCAs do not have a role in quota management and that they have alternative funding arrangements. On that basis, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Financial assistance: powers of Secretary of State (17 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: I want to speak to amendment 98 and new clause 21. The amendment would make two additions to the list of what are called “relevant marine functions”, for which charges can be made. The first addition, following on from the remarks of the hon. Member for Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport, would be the commissioning of “scientific research to support…fish stock management, food security...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Meaning of “chargeable person” and “unauthorised catch of sea fish” (17 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: I beg to move amendment 94, in clause 24, page 14, line 17, after “Organisation” insert “or an Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority”.

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Meaning of “chargeable person” and “unauthorised catch of sea fish” (17 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hanson. The amendments are more of the probing variety and are not quite as intimidating and long as they might appear. They relate to clauses 24 and 29, which concern the charging arrangements for the administration of the disposal of English fishing opportunities. I seek to address three issues through this group of amendments. First, I...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Duties to ensure fishing opportunities not exceeded (13 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: I shall speak to new clause 20. The distribution of fishing quota to the commercial sector is one of the Government’s most important functions. As we have heard, it will, to a very large extent, determine the success or failure of the fishing industry post-Brexit. It is generally acknowledged that the current system is dysfunctional as it encourages the over-concentration of ownership and...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Distribution of fishing opportunities (13 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: I am grateful to the Minister for that reply, and I take on board the nature in which he makes that offer. Over the years, so much suspicion has grown up over this issue. I feel that there is a need for transparency so that the industry and the public can have confidence in the system. I do think it appropriate to have what is a fairly minor amendment in the Bill, and therefore I will press...
