Syria: Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: I, too, congratulate the hon. Member for Wirral South (Alison McGovern) on securing this debate. A year ago virtually to the day, I was in Lebanon, and one of the purposes of my trip was to look at and learn about the impacts on Lebanon of the hospitality it had shown to refugees from Syria. I met many Syrian refugees, and we spoke to them through an interpreter. We can be very proud of this...

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: I support my right hon. Friend’s decisive action this weekend. Were we waiting for war crimes prosecutions to take place, we would still be waiting for prosecutions dating back to the events she described that took place in 2013. I urge her to collect evidence relating to war crimes, but if this position arises again may I urge her to act as she did this weekend?

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Women and Political Office (28 Mar 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: Clearly, it is important to use the centenary of women’s suffrage this year to encourage participation events across the country, including in my constituency and the north-west. What funding does the Minister have available to ensure that those types of events happen?

Point of Order: [Day 1] (14 Mar 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: It is always a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Leeds Central (Hilary Benn), who, as ever, was very eloquent. I heartily endorse his point about using multilateral institutions, but I fear that the failure of Europe to act in an appropriately tough way after the murder of Litvinenko may well have led the Russian state to think that it could have another go here. I would have...

Point of Order: [Day 1] (14 Mar 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: Of course there is nothing to prevent us from doing that at the moment. In fact, the number of non-tariff barriers has increased during our membership of the WTO, even though we are also a member of the EU. That is a real and significant danger to the UK economy. I hope that we will look in detail at sectors such as the three that I want to address: digital, insurance and legal. The digital...

Point of Order: [Day 1] (14 Mar 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Point of Order: [Day 1] (14 Mar 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: I do not want the impression to be given to this House that the recent figures published by the Exiting the European Union Committee were the same as the figures that were used pre-referendum. Two totally different economic models were used. It would be wrong for the record of this House to suggest that the figures used before the referendum were the same as the ones after.

Point of Order: [Day 1] (14 Mar 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: Going back to the analysis published by the Government and the risk presented by non-tariff barriers, it was clear in that analysis that, even if we had an EEA-style agreement, there would still be damage to the UK economy. Is the Minister saying that he wants EEA-plus?

Integrated Communities (14 Mar 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: I am grateful for the Secretary of State’s statement. I also wish to highlight the importance of women, especially because they, too, educate their children. What work has my right hon. Friend done to look into how he can reach women in a healthcare setting so that, as he outlined in his statement, the messages cut across Government Departments?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Carbon Reduction Targets (13 Mar 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: Does the Minister agree that improving home energy efficiency measures would help us to meet our carbon budgets?

Backbench Business: Energy Efficiency and the Clean Growth Strategy — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (8 Mar 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: I thank colleagues from across the House for participating in the debate. We have now had three Front-Bench speeches that have referred to colleagues’ contributions, so I will not go over them again. I reiterate that there has been agreement across the Chamber: if the Government invest in this area now, that will lead to huge savings—£1.3 billion in the health sector alone,...

Backbench Business: Energy Efficiency and the Clean Growth Strategy — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (8 Mar 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: If energy efficiency measures have been rolled out in the home, surely common sense dictates that those people who have experienced them go into work and see how similar measures could affect their work environment. Does my right hon. Friend the Minister agree that tackling the home energy efficiency market would inevitably assist with the business market?

Backbench Business: Energy Efficiency and the Clean Growth Strategy — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (8 Mar 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: Given the new Thornton campus in Cheshire, which is specialising in geothermal, may I suggest that on the way to Southampton from Scotland my hon. Friend call in to see some of the leading research that is being done at the University of Chester on the opportunities for geothermal and how we can roll that out much further across the country?

Backbench Business: Energy Efficiency and the Clean Growth Strategy — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (8 Mar 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: One of the big problems is that many of those measures need to go in when back-to-the-brick restoration or work is done in the home, because putting in solid wall insulation internally requires re-wiring, re-plastering and many other things. There is therefore a need to incentivise homeowners making changes to their home to do so at the right time. I am not certain that I see that being...

Backbench Business: Energy Efficiency and the Clean Growth Strategy — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (8 Mar 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: I have been converted, having installed an air source heat pump in a very old property in north Wales, with 75 mm of internal insulation. I can virtually heat the house on a candle—it is not quite that efficient, but it is close. What is more, I get money back in renewable heat incentive payments, which means that my total energy cost has gone from approximately £1,200 a year to...

Backbench Business: Energy Efficiency and the Clean Growth Strategy — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (8 Mar 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: I beg to move, That this House has considered energy efficiency and the clean growth strategy. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Walker. I am grateful to the many of my colleagues from both sides of the House who helped me to secure this debate, not least to the hon. Member for Birmingham, Selly Oak (Steve McCabe). This is an important debate, and I hope that it will spur...

Backbench Business: Energy Efficiency and the Clean Growth Strategy — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (8 Mar 2018)

Antoinette Sandbach: I completely agree, and those houses would be more easily resold, too. The energy efficiency measures that had been introduced in a property would have a market value, and that would be taken into account in the ability to resell—particularly the increased borrowing capability. Furthermore, it would give real value when looking at the EPC rating for the future. It is a simple step that...
