Fisheries (9 Dec 2003)

Mr Lawrie Quinn: ...so that at least one other Opposition Member representing a fishing community might say their piece for that community. This morning, I was looking at this year's census figures. It staggered me to find out that only 138 people declared themselves as working in the fishing industry in my constituency. Even that number, if we extend it using the conventional multiplier of eight, means that...

Financial Services Jobs (Outsourcing) (10 Dec 2003)

Henry Bellingham: ...dimension to National Rail Enquiries, as taxpayers' money, in the form of grants to the train operating companies, has arguably been used in exporting jobs. I want to refer to the point about onshoring. I have been contacted by about a dozen constituents who are IT consultants. They are struggling to find work as a result of the extra work permits that have been issued to IT consultants...

Energy Bill [HL] (11 Dec 2003)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: ...or our grandchildren's lifetimes, but our great-grandchildren's lifetimes. For 40 years of electricity production, we are now stuck with waste that is difficult and dangerous and for which we must find safe storage. The noble Earl, Lord Atlee, referred very well to some of the issues as regards finding a site where storage might be possible. If my maths is correct—it is quite difficult...

Fisheries Council (13 Jan 2004)

Frank Doran: ...advertised, but it is clear to me from my contact with fishermen and fish processors that in the past year many of them have depended on black fish for survival. I could make a phone call today and find out how much black fish costs on the market. It is not difficult to obtain, and that must end. The Minister talked about tighter enforcement, but the problem is not only at the catching...

Tidal Power (13 Jan 2004)

Earl Attlee: ...Lord suggests. It is always delightful to engage in debate with the Minister, but why is Defra's Minister responsible for sustainable energy, the noble Lord, Lord Whitty, not responding tonight? I find it quite confusing about which Minister will respond, although I accept entirely that the Minister answers for Her Majesty's Government. I found the White Paper extremely disappointing...

Scottish Parliament: Renewable Energy (21 Jan 2004)

Christine May: ...Enterprise and Culture Committee, who spent the past couple of days with me in Campbeltown—that Scotland has a huge renewable energy potential, not just in wind. If we realise it fully, we may find that that estimate of 10,000 jobs is conservative. The location of those potential jobs is important. Broadly speaking, the areas of the country that are best suited to wind, wave and tidal...

Fisheries Jurisdiction (2 Mar 2004)

Alex Salmond: ...political parties that are represented in the Chamber, which is unusual for a politically controversial measure, and, more important, by every fishing organisation in the country, both offshore and onshore. The Bill is a plea for fair treatment from one of the great natural resource industries of our land. Whatever the measure's fate today, the demand will return to this place until it is...

Energy Bill [HL] (29 Mar 2004)

Lord Davies of Oldham: ...am making are the same that I made in Grand Committee, because they retain their relevance. My noble friend is right that the great concern about these issues in Wales followed from the Cefn Croes onshore wind farm decision, which caused such concern that a working group has been set up to consider the crucial question of the handling of consent for power stations in Wales. I am at one...

Scottish Parliament: Business Motion (31 Mar 2004)

Richard Lochhead: ...permit system that remains in place. I remind Parliament that the issue does not affect only the white-fish fleet; it also affects the prawn fleet from Fife and other parts of Scotland, the onshore sector and the fish processors, and the scores of harbour businesses in all the ports around Scotland. As we speak, the white-fish fleet is fishing in the North sea. If the changes are not...

Scottish Parliament: Energy (22 Apr 2004)

Rob Gibson: .... That argument has been put firmly in its place. Carbon emissions are not the only issue. If we measure the potential of offshore wave power against the costs of disposing of nuclear waste, we may find that offshore wind power is cheaper than many conventional forms of generation—and certainly cheaper than nuclear power. One problem that I have with the Unison briefing from which people...

Orders of the Day — Energy Bill [Lords] (10 May 2004)

Bob Blizzard: ...sun, little wind."—[ Official Report, House of Lords, 11 December 2003; Vol. 655, c. 863.] We often accuse politicians of being London-centred, but I invite people to Lowestoft where they will find plenty of wind at Britain's most easterly point. What has held back wind energy most of all is the uphill struggle that it has had in securing onshore sites in the face of a planning system...

Scottish Parliament: Marine Environment (19 May 2004)

Rob Gibson: ...'s debate, it helps to have a particular sea view in mind when thinking about how an integrated marine policy should work. Few MSPs represent an area that has no coastline, so most of us should find it quite easy to do that. I was able to survey the waters of the Pentland firth from Dunnet head last Monday, when the Caithness walking festival offered me an ideal site from which to reflect...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 2 - Annual reports under section 1 of the Sustainable Energy Act 2003 (20 May 2004)

Desmond Turner: ...I say what a pleasure it is to serve under you as Chairman for the first time, Mr. Sayeed? Putting you in the Chair is obviously a way of keeping you out of the discussion. I hope that you do not find it too frustrating an experience. Once again, the amendment will be redundant in practice because the clause will go, and I apologise to the Committee that I was not as sharp as my hon....

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 94 - Consents for generating stations offshore (8 Jun 2004)

Bob Blizzard: ...ready to run, which is why the Government are rightly putting so much emphasis on wind energy in delivering the renewable energy target. However, it has been difficult to make sufficient progress onshore because of the various objections of people who live quite close to the sites. I thought that we were going to have a much clearer run in going offshore with wind energy. It is difficult...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 96 - Safety zones around renewable energy installations (15 Jun 2004)

Anne McIntosh: ..., which refers to a Bill that my hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge (Mr. Randall) has revived. It is similar to his previous Bill and has been introduced as a ten-minute Bill. Of course, I cannot find the reference to quote its title when I need it, but the Bill is about marine life and conservation. I am sure that the Committee would want to pay tribute to my hon. Friend for that. As...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: Schedule 16 - Applications and proposals for notices under section 96 (15 Jun 2004)

Anne McIntosh: We heard a little from the Minister for Energy, E-Commerce and Postal Services this morning about public inquiries and the procedures that will be used on land. I find the amendments quite interesting, as presumably they are probing the terms of a public inquiry for offshore installations. We know that those who contest planning applications, and particularly those who press for public...

UK Fishing Industry (29 Jun 2004)

Alistair Carmichael: It is a rare occasion indeed on which you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, the Minister and I are of a single mind, as we find ourselves to be in relation to the participation of the hon. Member for Banff and Buchan (Mr. Salmond). It is both a pleasure and a slight irritation to have this debate here and in these circumstances. It is a pleasure because to my constituency and many other fishing...

Energy Supply (30 Jun 2004)

Lord Greaves: ...that climate change will no doubt cause is to cover areas of wilderness in Wales, northern England, the Lake District and Scotland with power stations and new industrial landscapes, some of us will find ourselves with very difficult issues and choices. I do not believe that the environmental lobby and the green lobby have really got to grips with the implications of such choices. It is all...

Niger Delta (6 Jul 2004)

Mr Bill Tynan: ...of violence and corruption, caused by the exploitation of oil in the delta and fed by the theft of crude oil. It indicated that such increasing criminalisation in the region could force an end to onshore production in the delta by 2008. Following my discussions yesterday, I can say that Shell rejects that scenario completely. However, we must register our concern. As I said earlier, the...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Executive's Programme (8 Sep 2004)

Roseanna Cunningham: ...for Environment and Rural Development and his colleague the Deputy First Minister. There is an urgent need to widen the renewable energy base across a variety of sectors instead of focusing only on onshore wind farms. Before we rush to nuclear power—as was suggested again by John Home Robertson—with all its long-term implications, could we at least look at widening the potential for...
