Scottish Parliament: Renewable Energy Sector (Economic Impact) (24 Nov 2022)

Liam McArthur: ...renewables energy industry; understands that the report demonstrates that Scotland’s renewable energy industry and its supply chain supported more than 27,000 full time equivalent jobs, and that onshore wind supported the most employment across Scotland’s economy from the renewable energy sector, with 10,120 full time equivalent roles, followed by offshore wind with 6,735 full-time...

Energy (oil and gas) profits levy (22 Nov 2022)

Virendra Sharma: ...most of the past 12 years, yet the Government blame others for the mess that we are in. They blame economic headwinds, but never turn the blame on the Members who caused the trouble in which we find ourselves. It has been a political choice to govern like that—to run the economy into the ground; to slash living standards through economic mismanagement; to under-invest in the NHS; and to...

Public Bill Committee: UK Infrastructure Bank Bill [Lords]: Clause 2 - Objectives and activities (22 Nov 2022)

Abena Oppong-Asare: ...in his strategic steer to the bank in March that it should support the Government’s ambition of addressing “the deep spatial disparities across and within UK regions”. Those are his words. I find it strange that when he outlined the bank’s objectives in the strategic steer, his description of the climate objective matched that in the Bill, but his description of the economic...

Autumn Statement (17 Nov 2022)

Rachel Reeves: I thank the Chancellor for his statement. Here we are, the end of 2022. Three Prime Ministers, four Chancellors and four Budgets later, where do we find ourselves? In a worse place than we started the year, with inflation spiralling, growth plunging and living standards falling. Britain is a great country with fantastic strengths but, because of this Government’s mistakes, we are being held...

Britain’s Industrial Future (15 Nov 2022)

Peter Grant: ...denounced as cheap foreign labour by their own Member of Parliament, and if they no longer feel welcome in Peterborough, they can come to Fife or to Scotland. They will be made welcome. They will find thousands of businesses desperate to give them work: not “cheap foreign labour” work, but well-paid work that will keep the Scottish economy going. The motion is about the Government’s...

Fracking: Local Consent — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (15 Nov 2022)

Kerry McCarthy: ...the return of fracking in areas where there was local support. The Prime Minister also came out against solar power. I do not suppose the Minister is in a position to reply, but I am trying to find out through parliamentary questions whether there has been a change to the mooted policy of the previous Administration—we almost need names for each of the Administrations, because it gets...

Scottish Parliament: Offshore Wind (15 Nov 2022)

Fergus Ewing: ...are all here not to play politics with the past but to propel progress in the future. To that end, I would just reflect that, when I was energy minister, one of my most frustrating experiences was finding out that it could take 12 years to get consents for an onshore wind farm that it took 12 months to construct. I therefore suggest to the minister that the Scottish Government review the...

Nature and Climate Declaration — [JAMES GRAY in the Chair] (9 Nov 2022)

Wera Hobhouse: ...incentivised firms to invest in fossil fuel extraction. And our Prime Minister had to be dragged to the COP 27 summit this week. He was asked only today whether he would lift the de facto veto on onshore wind, but he did not answer the question. That gives rise to the question: what is this Government about? We have just heard that we need to find solutions that are affordable. The most...

Labour and Skills Shortages: Temporary Recovery Visa — [Judith Cummins in the Chair] (8 Nov 2022)

Liz Saville-Roberts: ..., as it puts under the microscope something that is affecting a number of fishing vessels. He is a fisherman from Nefyn, a town near where I live, which has a long and proud tradition of both onshore and offshore fishing; it even supplied captains for whaling vessels back in the day. Mr Roberts has been trying to recruit fishing crew members from outside the European economic area. In the...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Fracking: Environment Protection (31 Oct 2022)

Trudy Harrison: ...England Published. This defined the range of environmental risks and the current regulatory controls and was the starting point for development of sector specific guidance. The current version of Onshore Oil and Gas Sector Guidance was published in 2019. It sets out what activities require environmental permits and how an applicant is required to demonstrate that the impact on the...

National Food Strategy and Food Security (27 Oct 2022)

Kerry McCarthy: ...poorer-quality soil as BMV as part of their war on solar farms. Is that ill-thought-out proposal still Government policy? It was a few weeks ago; I hope the Minister understands that I am finding it quite difficult to keep up. Could he tell me whether the proposal to reclassify poorer-quality land as BMV is still going to be brought through? After yesterday’s Prime Minister’s...

Energy Prices Bill - Second Reading (19 Oct 2022)

Lord McNicol of West Kilbride: ...like a windfall tax and it acts like one. More importantly, not prioritising cheap, homegrown, low-carbon power in favour of expensive, insecure fossil fuels is just not sensible, as we have heard. Onshore wind and solar are being treated as the whipping boy of the industry, shouldering an unfair proportion of the costs while other renewables are protected. The Government have set out no...

Backbench Business: Post-Brexit Fisheries Management — [David Mundell in the Chair] (13 Oct 2022)

Jim Shannon: .... I have attended fishing debates over many years and have raised the point many times. I have met Immigration Ministers, who have always been incredibly helpful; I genuinely believe they wish to find a route through the process. The utopia we aim for—a domestic fishing fleet crewed by a domestic crew—regretfully remains some distance away. That is the nature of the economics of it...

Economy: The Growth Plan 2022 - Motion to Take Note (10 Oct 2022)

the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich: ...impact of some of the announcements made in the Government’s plan for growth. While I welcome the commitment to low-carbon energy sources and the desire to “unlock the potential of onshore wind by bringing consenting in line with other infrastructure”, I share concerns about ending the pause on extracting reserves of shale gas, and a new round of licences for oil and gas extraction....

Scottish Parliament: Economic Transformation (21 Sep 2022)

Ivan McKee: ...we asked the UK Government to do. It has been very late to the table on that, waiting for the change of Government for many, many weeks. That has been disappointing. Daniel Johnson struggled to find something sensible to say; he was all over the place, which was disappointing because he is usually much more focused and coherent in his interventions. He did not recognise the fact that the...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2022-23 (6 Sep 2022)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...profits tax, for example by broadening the energy profits levy and removing the investment allowance. The Scottish Government will continue to do all that we can to help. We will always try to find money for things that matter. However, under the current devolved settlement, our budget is essentially fixed, and it is under severe and increasing pressure. I have a duty to be frank about the...

New Pylons: East Anglia — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (19 Jul 2022)

Bernard Jenkin: ...the proposals. In a new regime, the effect on property prices, the loss of agricultural land and other non-monetised costs of the proposal need to be reflected in the costs; I think we would then find that the offshore transmission system would provide better value for money, and for the environment and communities. If it was worked out properly, an offshore ring main around the east of...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Boris Johnson: ...again with tens of gigawatts of clean green energy. We will have 50 GW of offshore wind by 2050, and thanks to this Government’s activism I am proud to say that offshore wind is now cheaper than onshore wind. I looked down at that ghostly white forest of windmills in the sea, financed with ever growing sums from international investors, and I thought, “This is how we will fix our...

Energy (Oil and Gas) Profits Levy Bill: Clause 1 - Charge to tax (11 Jul 2022)

James Murray: ...candidates may like to support our plan for an immediate, fully funded tax cut to help people with the cost of living and tackle inflation. Later this evening, when we vote on new clause 3, we will find out what judgment they have made. We would also like to know what judgment those people have made about the Government’s decision to undermine the levy by shamefully giving a third or...

Economic Crime: Law Enforcement (7 Jul 2022)

Liam Byrne: ..., and it is also why we have to reform the suspicious activity reporting regime. Not only does the regime need widening so that it bites on more organisations such as estate agents but we have to find a way of pooling the intelligence that comes from suspicious activity reports and focusing on where we think the harm is greatest. Our Committee has heard that loud and clear, not least in...
