Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Controlled Foreign Companies. (19 Jul 2000)

Oliver Letwin: I hardly dare suggest it, but we may be making progress. If I tell the Paymaster General what I find worrying, perhaps she can lay my fears to rest for Pepper v. Hart purposes. I freely admit that I only dimly understand how the motive test will be applied by the courts. Indeed, I am not convinced that the great lawyers understand that yet. As I dimly understand it, however, the test does...

Scottish Parliament: Sea Fisheries (7 Dec 2000)

Irene McGugan: ...is on record as saying that the Government must learn from the terrible mistakes that were made in the 1970s, when the North sea was closed for herring fishing and no account was taken of the onshore sector—when the herring returned, there was nobody left to process it. He suggested that the north-east is the only place in the world where people have the skills to handle the type of fish...

Non-Food Crops (11 Jan 2001)

Mr Simon Thomas: ...views on genetically modified crops; I am not keen on them as far as food crops are concerned. Research into genetically modified crops for non-food purposes may be something that the public will find more acceptable as we develop non-food crops that produce high energy yields. Bioethanol can now be produced from wood, in addition to more traditional methods. Wood is something that we in...

Greening Government Initiative (18 Jan 2001)

Michael Meacher: ...it is actually 2.6 per cent. It is certainly true that there is a long way to go, but those drivers are being put in place. In terms of the green fuels challenge, there will be major increases in onshore and offshore wind, biomass, biofuels and biodiesel. I was interested in the hon. Gentleman's comments on incineration. As a Minister, one always learns new things in debates such as this....

Points of Order: Fisheries (25 Jan 2001)

Joan Humble: ...WWF report that was published last year. It makes some interesting points, as does the more recent Select Committee report. We need to consider financial support not only for fishermen but for the onshore industry, which needs to examine modernising port infrastructure. Many facilities in the port in Fleetwood were designed for a time when we had a large distant-water fleet. That fleet no...

Orders of the Day — Gas Prices (8 Feb 2001)

Peter Hain: ...and must be tackled. We are looking at ways of improving the functioning of all parts of the market. That involves increasing the amount of information available to the market, both across the onshore-offshore interface and from the interconnector, to achieve full transparency. A well-informed market is an efficient market. Such action will help the market to work more effectively by, for...

Fishing Industry (7 Mar 2001)

Frank Doran: ...the problem. The Scottish Fishermen's Federation and the National Federation of Fishermen's Organisations, which is based in England, have taken a constructive approach. The processing industry onshore has also been constructive. Ministers should examine that carefully because we hear language from both sides of the industry that would have been unthinkable a few years ago. There are...

International Development White Paper (3 May 2001)

Mr Harry Barnes: ...the economic causes of the break-up of Yugoslavia should also be examined in terms of its then currency problems. Such problems can create social disruption and allow people with extremist ideas to find a ready market for their particular approach. Those speculative currency flows undermine the powers of national Governments and regional blocs, and create massive instability. Tobin...

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive: Oil and Gas Industry (13 Sep 2001)

Elaine Thomson: ...Aberdeen last week. It is the second-biggest oil and gas show in the world and attracted 25,000 visitors from 78 countries. However, a major concern was raised about the impact of skills shortages onshore and offshore. If not addressed, they may impact on future investment decisions in the UK sector over the coming 30 years, when another generation of young Scots could be finding...

Clean Fuels (19 Oct 2001)

Joan Ruddock: ...a clean technology and part of the fight against climate change. That was, of course, not true. We already have 10,000 tonnes of highly dangerous nuclear waste stored in the UK awaiting someone to find a solution to the problem of its disposal, and 500,000 tonnes of such waste are destined to be produced by existing nuclear capacity. Yesterday, my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State...

Fishing Communities Regeneration Initiative (24 Oct 2001)

Bob Blizzard: ...changes, the number of full-time UK fishermen, after remaining relatively stable between 1970 and 1990, has fallen by 29 per cent. between 1990 and 2000." That does not take account of many more onshore jobs in fishing communities that depend on the catching and have also disappeared. We know that the Government cannot suddenly conjure up more fish in the sea, but people expect help in...

Written Answers — Trade and Industry: UK Gas Market (2 Nov 2001)

Mr Brian Wilson: ...To Market Efficiency", which considers the various concerns made about the gas market. The document also considers the wider benefits to the gas market of increased information flows between the onshore and the offshore. This builds on a joint workshop with the United Kingdom Offshore Operators Association held on 10 September. The intention behind the document is to stimulate debate and...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Draft Programme for Government (13 Nov 2001)

Ms Jane Morrice: I am not necessarily in the business of blame, but it is necessary to find money. It does not matter where the money comes from, but it must come fast. Cancer services is another area of vital importance. I can recall a serious incident from personal experience. My father died of cancer two years ago. A month after he died, we received a letter from his consultant asking him to come for an...

Common Fisheries Policy (6 Dec 2001)

Anthony Steen: ...industry—in fact, I think that he is the fishing industry. He has been the best fishing Minister, if not the only fishing Minister, that the Labour Government have found. Perhaps they cannot find another one. It does not matter how long the debate runs, although I am grateful to all hon. Members for pushing for a full day's debate. Fishing policy has virtually nothing to do with the...

Wave and Tidal Energy (10 Jan 2002)

Mr Brian Wilson: ...otherwise. That was real vision. If we can match it now with other renewable energy sources, we will have done a good job for future generations. Renewable energy sources include hydro energy, onshore and offshore wind energy, energy crops and biomass, landfill gas, and wave, tidal and solar energy. We should not be picking winners at this stage. We must let them all flourish to their...

Heritage Attractions (7 Mar 2002)

Jim Knight: ...gas and other forms of environmentally friendly fuel is being explored, and work is being done with firms such as BP, which exploits oil in Poole harbour on the world heritage coast and brings it onshore at Wych Farm in my constituency. Essentially, however, buses will not solve our transport problems. There are also difficulties with our roads, particularly in Weymouth, and we are...

Scottish Parliament: Nuclear Power Stations (14 Mar 2002)

Bruce Crawford: That may be Phil Gallie's view, but I find it difficult to put the concepts of cunning and George Foulkes together. George Foulkes's comment certainly elicited a swift response from his mate Brian Wilson—I am not sure whether Brian Wilson is his best mate—in a BBC interview the next morning. What is it about the Executive and the BBC? Brian Wilson said: "The position is unambiguous. If...

Renewable Energy (22 May 2002)

Gareth Thomas: ...up further. It assumes that the Ministry of Defence has not objected to those particular wind farm sites. A key feature of our approach to sites for turbines has been to leave developers to find suitable sites themselves. The Ministry is understandably worried about the impact on radar and, if a technical solution cannot be found, surely the Government need to be more active in earmarking...

Scottish Parliament: Oil and Gas Industry (29 May 2002)

Marilyn Livingstone: ...to discuss the future of the oil and gas industry in Europe's oil capital. The Executive is totally committed to maximising the life of Scotland's oil and gas sector and maintaining jobs both onshore and offshore. I agree with my colleague Elaine Thomson about the success story of oil and gas in Scotland. There is no doubt that the oil and gas industry is a major player in the Scottish...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill — [1st Allotted Day]: New Clause 1 — Supplementary charge in respect of ring fence trades: financing costs (3 Jul 2002)

Robert Smith: .... The hon. Member for Epsom and Ewell (Chris Grayling) made a valid point about the importance of the supply chain to the North sea oil industry—the manufacturing that is supported by it and the onshore jobs not just in Scotland but throughout the United Kingdom. Some companies are finding life difficult. They do not necessarily want to be named, but some companies in my constituency...
