Written Answers — Department for Energy and Climate Change: Warm Home Discount Scheme (17 Dec 2014)

Having different delivery mechanisms under the scheme, for example to allow some customers to redeem their rebate against their gas bills, would increase the cost of...

Public Bill Committee: Infrastructure Bill [Lords]: Clause 36 - Maximising economic recovery of UK petroleum (8 Jan 2015)

Amber Rudd: It is absolutely our intention to ensure that CCS is at the front of our strategy. We recognise, as does the hon. Gentleman, the important role it can play. I repeat that it is a nascent strategy, but that does not mean it is not important. The OGA, the new body being set up, will have its obligation to develop and license CCS at its core. That is not part of this particular element, but it...

Government Overseas Aid Commitment: Private Investment: EU Exit Negotiations (9 Oct 2018)

Amber Rudd: I welcome the deliberative approach to Brexit that protects businesses and endeavours to make sure that frictionless travel will continue across the board, but may I ask the Secretary of State what his plans are in the event of a no deal for security matters? I remain very concerned about the somewhat gung-ho approach to a no deal, given that security matters are not yet in place to ensure...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (23 May 2011)

Amber Rudd: Schools in Hastings have been bitterly disappointed by the recent decision of the local authority, guided by the schools forum, to devolve £1.4 million of excellence cluster funding that had been intended for the most deprived schools.
