Liberal Democrat MP for Kingston and Surbiton (1 May 1997 – current)
Did you mean end Davey?
Fergus Ewing: Will the close relationship between the Scottish Government and Ed Davey and the Department of Energy and Climate Change be matched by the close relationship between Ed Davey and DECC and Mr Davey’s colleagues in the Treasury?
Stewart Stevenson: I have found that it is perfectly possible to make common cause with UK ministers. I met Ed Davey, who has taken over as secretary of state at the Department of Energy and Climate Change, a week past Friday. I know that the Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs and the Environment has also met Ed Davey. We are always happy to work with the UK Government where we can make common cause, and this...
Alex Salmond: Fergus Ewing has written this week to the responsible United Kingdom minister, Ed Davey, to ask him to review the current situation and see what measures can be taken to ensure that online retailers adopt a much fairer pricing policy across the country. I noted in The Inverness Courier this week that our man in Westminster, Danny Alexander, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, was calling for...
John Swinney: Mr Ewing wrote to the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change at the end of last week. He made the point to Ed Davey that, following the publication of the clauses on Thursday, it is crystal clear that that policy responsibility is now coming to the Scottish Parliament. Our view is that no decisions about licences should be made by the UK Government until the Scottish Parliament is...
Jim Mather: I wrote on 16 June 2010 to Ed Davey MP, the UK Minister for Employment Relations, Consumer and Postal Affairs, following his appointment. A copy of the letter has been placed in the Scottish Parliament Information Centre (Bib. number 52109). I wrote on 1 November 2010 to Vince Cable MP, UK Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, following the publication of the Postal Services...
Fergus Ewing: The Scottish Government has regular dialogue with Scottish Power, the United Kingdom Government and National Grid about Longannet power station and its contribution to our energy security. Last week, Scottish Power announced that it has not put Longannet forward for the UK Government’s capacity market auction, which is one of the potential mechanisms for supporting the plant’s continued...
Fergus Ewing: I have always said that Ed Davey and I worked together, for example on delivering connections to the islands. Liam McArthur is absolutely right: the decision that the UK Government announced will make it more difficult to raise the investment that is required in all areas for renewables, because of the simple fact that when bankers and commercial companies see a Government—the UK Government...
Michael Lord: Point of order—Mr. Ed Davey.
Michael Lord: I call Ed Davey.
Earl Attlee: My Lords, I accept that several government departments are involved; however, officials do talk to each other. The Secretary of State, Ed Davey, was representing the UK in Europe, trying to find a solution to the ILUC problems.
Energy and Climate Change: Review of DECC Policy.
Witnesses: Ed Davey, Secretary of State, Department of Energy and Climate Change, Stephen Lovegrove, Permanent Secretary, Department of Energy and Climate Change, Simon Virley, Director General, Energy Markets and Infrastructure Group and Phil Wynnowen, Director General of the International Climate change and Energy Efficiency Group
Rob Gibson: Ed Davey has shuffled away from support for renewables to support for nuclear energy. The uncertainties that have been created by the Westminster Government are all part of the story that is not told in the motion. John Swinney’s amendment gets at the truth.
Amber Rudd: My rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State replied to the rt. hon. Member for Manchester, Gorton on 7 January 2015. A copy of the reply is attached. SoS Ed Davey Letter to G Kaufman 07.01.15 (PDF Document, 513.67 KB)
Science and Technology: The resilience of electricity infrastructure.
Witnesses: (at 11.30am) evidence will be heard from Rt Hon Ed Davey MP, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, DECC.
Lord Prior of Brampton: All I can do is repeat what I said before which is that, as Ed Davey said, there is no statistical link, in his view, between the Government’s benefits reforms and the provision of food banks. I think that the issue is much more complex than the most reverend Primate is suggesting.
Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: My Lords, EDF has said that it is working hard to take a final investment decision in the near future with the full support of the French Government. We believe—along with the Minister who took the initial decision, Ed Davey—that the Government negotiated a good deal; he repeated that this week.
James Gray: I call Sir Ed Davey—very briefly.
Baroness Kramer: My Lords, will the Government take up the proposal made by my colleague Ed Davey to set up a website for lenders and products in the various support schemes along the lines of Compare the Market, so that firms can quickly identify which lenders would be willing to lend to them? They can then approach that institution and get money much more quickly.
Liam McArthur: I am grateful to the minister for giving way, although I think that some of his comments about Ed Davey have been less than charitable. Has the Government considered EU regulations and whether a legal challenge can be mounted? I presume that that issue has been looked at and that either no grounds for a challenge have been found or there is something that could be prosecuted.
Edward Davey: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, on how many occasions in the past year he has (a) been interviewed by and (b) written an op-ed for (i) The Times and The Sunday Times, (ii) The Daily Telegraph, (iii) The Guardian, (iv) The Sun, (v) The Daily Mail and The Mail on Sunday, (vi) The Mirror, (vii) The Daily Express, (viii) The Evening Standard and (ix) the Metro.
