Energy Network Charges — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (5 Jul 2016)

Callum McCaig: I accept the point that they may be relatively small figures for individuals—they may be generally quite important to them for the reasons outlined—but, to use the hon. Gentleman’s own figures and multiply the £60 benefit by 700,000 people, this is not quite back-of-a-fag-packet but that is £42 million being needlessly taken out of the economy of the north of Scotland. That would make...

Energy Network Charges — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (5 Jul 2016)

Callum McCaig: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Main. My hon. Friend the Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber (Ian Blackford) has said most of what is required and he said it in his usual passionate way. It is right that he should feel passionate about this, because there is a clear sense of injustice—one that, as he rightly pointed out, the Minister has acknowledged in the past. To...

Energy Network Charges — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (5 Jul 2016)

Callum McCaig: My apologies, Mrs Main. The issue, as I say, is one of fairness. My hon. Friend the Member for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey (Drew Hendry) has highlighted the additional impacts that come from the rural nature of large parts of the highlands and islands and the north of Scotland in general. The Government must take those into account. It is easy to hide behind Ofgem, but the...

Department of Energy and Climate Change: Energy Spending Priorities: Investors and Consumers (4 Jul 2016)

Callum McCaig: I welcome the fact that we are debating these important Energy and Climate Change Committee reports, but as my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow North (Patrick Grady) has ably demonstrated, it is a pity that we are doing so tonight when we should be discussing how we spend all the money that the Government spend—it is a whopping figure. There is a tinge of irony in the fact that less...

Department of Energy and Climate Change: Energy Spending Priorities: Investors and Consumers (4 Jul 2016)

Callum McCaig: I would go further than saying that that would be useful; it is absolutely essential. It behoves a responsible Government to do that. These are not contingency plans any more; they are just the plans. There must be some sense of certainty about what is going on. The reports from my hon. Friend’s Committee have ably demonstrated that uncertainty builds in additional cost. We have to replace...

Department of Energy and Climate Change: Energy Spending Priorities: Investors and Consumers (4 Jul 2016)

Callum McCaig: This comes to the nub of the issue with investment in this area. The Government are completely unwilling to accept that it is investment. Investment in making homes energy efficient is an investment in our society. There are savings to be made. We need to look at things in the round, rather than looking at one part in isolation.

Written Answers — Department for Energy and Climate Change: Hinkley Point C Power Station (4 Jul 2016)

Written Answers — Department for Energy and Climate Change: Department of Energy and Climate Change: Freedom of Information (4 Jul 2016)

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Regional Airports (30 Jun 2016)

Callum McCaig: Whether he plans to review the effectiveness of the public service obligation for regional airports.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Regional Airports (30 Jun 2016)

Callum McCaig: For Aberdeen, as an international oil and gas hub, the access that we enjoy to Heathrow as a gateway to the rest of the world is as important, if not perhaps more important, than its access to this fine city of London. Aberdeen has looked at the prospect of a PSO, which would provide access only to a London airport, whereas we need point-to-point access. Will the Secretary of State ensure...

Uk Economy (29 Jun 2016)

Callum McCaig: As other hon. Members have said, there is no impediment against this Government—indeed, this House—making a positive statement about the rights of those EU citizens, whom we value and who make an unbelievable contribution to our communities. That can and should be done. We need to press all those seeking the Tory leadership on this. If they all unite on it before going through the...

Uk Economy (29 Jun 2016)

Callum McCaig: The leaders of the Brexit campaign are conspicuous by their absence from this Chamber, which is perhaps not a surprise, given the embarrassment they face. One of those leading voices—the Minister of State for Energy—said the volatility we are seeing is not unusual. Does it not just underline the complete economic illiteracy of their case that they think these unprecedented changes are...

EU Council (29 Jun 2016)

Callum McCaig: The already dodgy economics of Hinkley Point C have surely been fatally undermined by the decision to withdraw from the European Union. May I suggest to the Prime Minister, if he is looking to salvage something of a legacy, that he pulls the plug on this enormous folly?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Allies and Partners: Co-operation (27 Jun 2016)

Callum McCaig: What plans his Department has to ensure future defence co-operation with allies and partners.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Allies and Partners: Co-operation (27 Jun 2016)

Callum McCaig: What an utter shambles this is. I am afraid that that is not good enough from the Defence Secretary. We do not have a plan A for Brexit, let alone a plan B. The position of the Government and the Brexiters is confused. There is no plan on the table. Are we going to do a Norway? May I suggest to the Defence Secretary that we look at doing a Norway when it comes to defence, and we perhaps go...
