Solar Industry — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] ( 5 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I agree with that assessment, which is why I argue that a minimum floor is needed. I am afraid that failure to extend that kind of certainty to small-scale prosumers will give the impression that the Government are more comfortable with big business than with small producer-consumers. A fair minimum export price will ensure that consumers are not ripped off while the industry and the new...

Solar Industry — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] ( 5 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I completely agree. I know that councils and housing associations have certainly taken advantage of the ability to install solar power, which is a great development. The decision needs to be made quickly, to meet the tight deadlines, but it would be a shot in the arm for a sector that has faced a series of difficulties. It would also help to deliver our climate change targets. Yesterday’s...

Solar Industry — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] ( 5 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. Beyond the need to make the decision, there is a concern that the roll-out of the smart meter programme could have an impact on the deliverability of necessary infrastructure to facilitate the smart export guarantee. SMETS 1 meters, which are in 17 million homes, cannot yet relay export data to the Data Communications Company. What...

Solar Industry — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] ( 5 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I agree that is worrying. I would argue that small-scale renewables encourage our constituents to get involved in a whole green agenda and to look at their homes and their energy use in a completely different way. If we combined that with energy efficiency measures, we would start to get some dramatic change in the sector. There is a big opportunity for the Minister regarding energy...

Solar Industry — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] ( 5 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: This will have to be the last intervention.

Solar Industry — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] ( 5 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: The hon. Gentleman will have heard in my speech that I have been arguing for that certainty. The consultation closed four hours ago, so the Minister will not yet have had time to consider the responses, but I think that, from the debate, she will appreciate the urgency of doing so. I hope that she can offer answers to my questions and reassurance to those who have backed renewables. We are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: No Deal EU Exit: Job Losses ( 5 Mar 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: Cheshire-based company ABB has stated that investment in automation could result in radical improvements in cost efficiency, allowing work to move back to the UK. Will my right hon. Friend consider incentivising investment in automation through the tax system?

Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Feb 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I am sure my right hon. Friend will be aware that a lot of small businesses have not put in place no-deal preparations. Many of them may have been misled or given the impression by comments made in this House that tariff-free trade may be available for 10 years under article 24 of the general agreement on tariffs and trade. The document published by the Government makes it crystal clear that...

Leaving the European Union (26 Feb 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: The Prime Minister was told a long time ago that this would be the easiest deal in history, and that we would be in an implementation period and not a transition period. Given the importance of the future trade arrangements to this country, will she commit herself to ensuring that red lines are put before Parliament for Parliament’s democratically elected representatives to vote on, in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (26 Feb 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: Will the Minister update us on what steps are being taken to support recently liberated areas in Iraq?

EU Trade Agreements: Replication (13 Feb 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I heard the Secretary of State give the commitment on the guidance that he is going to give. My constituents who are seeking to export to countries now do not know, at the point of departure, what regime their goods will face on arrival. I note the Secretary of State’s attacks on the Opposition parties, but he may wish to recall that 117 Government MPs did not vote for the Prime...

Education Funding: Cheshire (13 Feb 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: The Minister mentioned the improvement in standards. One example is the Sound and District Primary School, which improved the proportion of pupils achieving at key stage 2 from 70% in 2017 to 83% in 2018. Will the Minster deal with the suggestions about the index-linked approach and the age-weighted pupil unit funding that is the core of funding for every school, regardless of its particular...

Education Funding: Cheshire (13 Feb 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the pressure that was put on by my hon. Friend the Member for Congleton and myself, and indeed by other hon. Members who met with the Minister to ensure that a minimum level of funding was applied, resulted from the particular problems in Cheshire East and Cheshire West and Chester? Does she also agree that those problems are linked to the formula by which...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Solar Power (12 Feb 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: I welcome the Minister’s commitment that no small-scale producer should export electricity to the grid for nothing. Will she confirm that as well as applying to solar, that would extend to small-scale hydro?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions ( 4 Feb 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: Schools in Cheshire are still underfunded compared with more urban counterparts, especially in London. Will the Secretary of State agree to meet me and a number of Conservative councillors from Cheshire East Council, and Cheshire West and Chester Council, to discuss how we can fix this historical inequality?

Written Answers — Department for Education: Education: Finance ( 4 Feb 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: What recent comparative assessment he has made of education funding in England and in other countries.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Broadband and Mobile Phone Coverage: Rural Areas (31 Jan 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: What steps he is taking to improve broadband and mobile phone coverage in rural areas.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Broadband and Mobile Phone Coverage: Rural Areas (31 Jan 2019)

Antoinette Sandbach: A number of Eddisbury residents have been denied superfast broadband because Openreach refused to connect them to their nearest cabinet as, for historical reasons, they are connected to one many miles away. What can the Minister do to ensure that common sense applies?
