Shale Gas Exploration: Planning Permission (12 Sep 2018)

Lee Rowley: I am disappointed by the Minister’s response so far. I put on the table some clear views about planning, but she has spent the first eight minutes of her speech not talking about planning. The reality is that people need to be heard, and people are not being heard with this speech.

Shale Gas Exploration: Planning Permission (12 Sep 2018)

Lee Rowley: I beg to move, That this House has considered planning permission for shale gas exploration. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. I thank all those attending and all those who have come along to speak. It is fantastic to see so many people in this room for a 30-minute debate on fracking; it demonstrates the importance of this matter and the particular importance of...

Shale Gas Exploration: Planning Permission (12 Sep 2018)

Lee Rowley: If hon. Members will bear with me, I will do one to two minutes of introduction and then I will be happy to take interventions. I will set out my stall immediately: I stand here today to highlight my concerns on both those proposals and an industry that is highly controversial as a form of energy extraction, has a chequered history in the United Kingdom, has not been proven at scale and has,...

Shale Gas Exploration: Planning Permission (12 Sep 2018)

Lee Rowley: I will give way to my right hon. Friend the Member for East Yorkshire (Sir Greg Knight).

Shale Gas Exploration: Planning Permission (12 Sep 2018)

Lee Rowley: I appreciate the Chair’s guidance and I will seek to conclude by 11.15 am, with any interventions that I have taken. I thank the Minister, who has been incredibly kind to me in hearing my comments on this and has spent some time with me already to talk about it. She is fully aware of my views both on fracking in general and on these proposals; I do not think anything I say today is...

Shale Gas Exploration: Planning Permission (12 Sep 2018)

Lee Rowley: I will not take objections. What we need to debate here is the proposals on permitted development and NSIP. Whatever one’s views on those, my concern is exactly as has just been outlined by my right hon. Friend the Member for East Yorkshire. The proposals before us for permitted development and NSIP do one main thing, and one main thing only: they take people out of a process that it is...

Shale Gas Exploration: Planning Permission (12 Sep 2018)

Lee Rowley: My hon. Friend has a way with words, and he sums up the real concern within and without this House about the proposals. I understand the consultation is under way and is open; I hope that the Minister will highlight that she and the Government have an open mind on this. If I may demonstrate for a moment my experience in my constituency, I have had a planning application for exploration in...

Shale Gas Exploration: Planning Permission (12 Sep 2018)

Lee Rowley: I will not give way for the moment. It is not just the 60 metre-high drilling rig; it is the industrial equipment that would stay there for a period of five years just for the exploration. From my planning application, that is a 2 metre-high perimeter fence, a 4.8 metre-high combination of bunding and fencing, two to three cabinets of 3 metres in height, acoustic screening of 5 metres in...

Shale Gas Exploration: Planning Permission (12 Sep 2018)

Lee Rowley: I concur with my hon. Friend’s statement on that matter.

Shale Gas Exploration: Planning Permission (12 Sep 2018)

Lee Rowley: I will give way in one moment. This is the point about permitted development. On the NSIP proposals for actual production of fracking, having read the consultation I am unsure how this can be put into NSIP, even if it was a good idea. The consultation itself seems to confuse major shale gas production with shale gas production, but I have not seen a definition of major versus minor....

Shale Gas Exploration: Planning Permission (12 Sep 2018)

Lee Rowley: I will give way to my hon. Friend the Member for Thirsk and Malton (Kevin Hollinrake) and then to the hon. Member for Bolsover (Mr Skinner).

Shale Gas Exploration: Planning Permission (12 Sep 2018)

Lee Rowley: I agree completely with my hon. Friend.

Shale Gas Exploration: Planning Permission (12 Sep 2018)

Lee Rowley: I welcome the hon. Gentleman’s involvement in this. This is my second debate on this question, and I welcome his attendance. I have been making the case strongly for North East Derbyshire and strongly against fracking in North East Derbyshire since I had the privilege to be elected to this place, and I will continue to do so. The hon. Gentleman is a former miner and I have a huge...

Shale Gas Exploration: Planning Permission (12 Sep 2018)

Lee Rowley: As the chair of the all-party parliamentary group on the impact of shale gas—the hon. Gentleman is also a member—I am extremely concerned by issues that Professor Styles suggests could occur in mining areas like ours if fracking goes ahead at scale. I will try to wind up as I want to ensure that the Minister has time to speak. As I said at the beginning, the fundamental problem...

Written Answers — Treasury: Claims Management Services (10 Sep 2018)

Lee Rowley: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether he plans to bring forward legislative proposals to include (a) claims management companies and (b) law firms undertaking claims activities in the remit of the Financial Conduct Authority's jurisdiction and supervision under the supervision of the Solicitors Regulatory Authority.

Written Answers — Treasury: Claims Management Services (10 Sep 2018)

Lee Rowley: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether (a) his Department or (b) the Financial Conduct Authority has made an assessment of trends in the level of costs for financial services as a result of (i) spurious and (ii) fraudulent claims by claims management companies.

Derbyshire CCGs’ Finances — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Sep 2018)

Lee Rowley: Every Member present who represents a Derbyshire constituency is concerned about the actions of the CCG, particularly the implication for the voluntary sector. That was outlined by the three Conservatives and two of the Labour Members, either by speaking or by being present. The challenge is that, if we contextualise this debate in a not-quite-accurate framework, we misunderstand why we are...

Derbyshire CCGs’ Finances — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Sep 2018)

Lee Rowley: I share the concerns outlined by the hon. Lady and my hon. Friend the Member for Amber Valley (Nigel Mills), and I absolutely regret what the CCGs are proposing for the voluntary budgets. I hope they think again, as I am sure everybody in this Chamber does. However, does the hon. Lady agree that contextualising this issue with a wider point about cuts, which she is about to start doing, is...

Office for Budget Responsibility — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Jul 2018)

Lee Rowley: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Ochil and South Perthshire (Luke Graham) on securing this important debate; the relatively small number of Members in the Chamber is disproportionate to its impact, and I know our colleagues are desperate to be here and talk about these things. This is one of the most interesting and...
