Written Answers — Department for Energy and Climate Change: Tidal Power (24 Mar 2015)

However, this represents almost...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (25 Oct 2010)

Amber Rudd: Many Members on both sides of the House have been kind enough to share their sympathy with me and my constituents about the devastating fire that afflicted Hastings and its pier recently.

Public Bill Committee: Infrastructure Bill [Lords]: Clause 33 - The community electricity right (8 Jan 2015)

Amber Rudd: The hon. Gentleman is entirely correct. Since the example that I gave is already participating and is a classic example of community energy participation, it is fair to assume that a local CIC constructed by the city council would qualify. I do not want to set out different definitions of “community” in this part of the Bill. We want to learn from the existing examples, of which the...

Girls (Educational Development) — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (29 Nov 2011)

Amber Rudd: The Government are right to put so much emphasis on qualifications and on raising school standards.
