Offshore Wind Contracts (12 Sep 2023)

Stephen Crabb: Delivering on the floating offshore wind project in the Celtic sea is vital for our energy security and decarbonisation. Does the Minister agree that we now need to bolster confidence in this emerging industry? There are two things he can do. Does he agree that a successful allocation of FLOWMIS money to the south Wales ports in order to get this industry moving is vital? Does he also agree...

Treasury: Topical Questions ( 5 Sep 2023)

Stephen Crabb: Over the summer ports have been bidding to the Government’s infrastructure fund to help them get ready for the delivery of the new floating offshore wind industry. May I encourage Ministers to look favourably on the bids from the Celtic sea ports of Milford Haven and Port Talbot, because those two ports are key to unlocking the enormous economic benefits of this new clean energy industry?

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories (18 Jul 2023)

Stephen Crabb: What makes this latest tragic wave of violence even more concerning is the emergence of new terror groups in the Palestinian territories such as the Lions’ Den and the Jenin Brigades alongside Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, coupled with the seeming loss of control of the Palestinian Authority. Does my hon. Friend share my concern about the influence of outside actors—namely...

Stephen Crabb: To ask the Secretary of State for Business and Trade, whether she has had recent discussions with Cabinet colleagues on the implications for the Government's policies of the research being undertaken at universities with Iranian scientists on drone technology.

Iran ( 6 Jul 2023)

Stephen Crabb: I welcome the action that my right hon. Friend has announced to the House this afternoon. I think it is important that the House should remain united and clear-sighted about the need to confront Iran’s behaviour. He mentioned Russia’s use of Iranian drone technology in Ukraine, and we understand that Putin is seeking to acquire Iranian ballistic weapons technology as well. It is my...

Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Energy Infrastructure ( 5 Jul 2023)

Stephen Crabb: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. With the leave of the House, let me thank the Minister for that summation and the Opposition Front-Bench spokesman. This has been a very good debate. The fact that it has been so well attended and the quality of the contributions from Members on both sides underlines its importance and timeliness. I, for one, think it a good thing that the debate has not just...

Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Energy Infrastructure ( 5 Jul 2023)

Stephen Crabb: It is a privilege to open this afternoon’s debate on energy infrastructure at the start of this estimates day. It is an important and timely topic for us to consider, and I am grateful to the Backbench Business Committee for selecting it. I am also grateful to the colleagues from both sides of the House, and from different parts of the United Kingdom, who are here this afternoon to...

Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Energy Infrastructure ( 5 Jul 2023)

Stephen Crabb: As ever, the hon. Gentleman is correct: we are one United Kingdom. Of course, on energy on the island of Ireland there are interconnections with the Republic, but with the changing nature of our energy system, the economic opportunities for investment, job creation and industrial renewal are enormous for all parts of the UK—for Northern Ireland, Wales, England and Scotland. I wish to touch...

Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Energy Infrastructure ( 5 Jul 2023)

Stephen Crabb: I give way to the Chairman of the Select Committee on Energy Security and Net Zero.

Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Energy Infrastructure ( 5 Jul 2023)

Stephen Crabb: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for bringing that to the House’s attention. There are currently about 200 GW of projects on the books. Many of those are zombie projects, as he describes them, that will not come to fruition and so are clogging up the system. The Government need somehow to get rid of those projects in order to focus on areas where we know there will be investment, and to...

Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Energy Infrastructure ( 5 Jul 2023)

Stephen Crabb: The hon. Lady makes a good point. Investment in large-scale nuclear, or even small modular reactors, is a longer-term feature of our energy system, as the Government’s “Powering up Britain” report recognised. In fact, the Government’s targets for increasing nuclear are for 2050, not 2030. On the cost of nuclear, yes, those points were made to the Committee. We made sure that we had an...

Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Energy Infrastructure ( 5 Jul 2023)

Stephen Crabb: I am going to disappoint the hon. Gentleman, because I do not have those specific figures in the pile of notes I have brought with me. However, those figures are out there and the evidence is there. He is right that small modular reactors are a technology for the future and testing is still required, but that work is going on, and not just in the UK but in other countries. It will be a...

Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Energy Infrastructure ( 5 Jul 2023)

Stephen Crabb: The evidence we considered took in the entire life cycle of a nuclear power station. Looking at the energy produced over 30, 40, 50 or more years shows that they give us a secure, reliable base load of affordable energy production. People who oppose nuclear per se will not be persuaded on cost or on the efficiency of the technology; they will not be persuaded at all. However, the bulk of the...

Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Energy Infrastructure ( 5 Jul 2023)

Stephen Crabb: We took evidence from Rolls-Royce, and we heard about the £200 million it has already received from the UK Government to help with development and that there is still work to be done. I know Ministers will be acutely aware of the cost and that there are other potential British providers of SMR technology. I confess that I am not expert enough on the precise details of SMRs to debate them...

Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Energy Infrastructure ( 5 Jul 2023)

Stephen Crabb: I do agree, yes. I made the point earlier that, with fixed-bottom offshore wind, we perhaps missed some opportunities for getting investment in local supply chains, but that is changing too. I recognise that, on the east coast of England, there are some exciting investment plans and jobs being created by large-scale developers. We want that and more for this new industry of floating offshore...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Ammunition: Procurement ( 5 Jul 2023)

Stephen Crabb: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, how much and what proportion of the (a) £2 billion announced in the Integrated Review Refresh 2023 to replenish and increase munitions stockpiles and (b) £560 million at the Autumn Statement 2022 will be allocated to manufacturers based in Wales.
