Covid-19 Update (19 Apr 2021)

Matthew Hancock: ...progress that we have made here in the UK. Thanks to our early investment in covid genomic sequencing, we have in this country one of the best systems to spot and supress new variants wherever we find them through a combination of tough measures at the border, our genomic sequencing capability and a massive testing system. I would like to inform the House of another new development in our...

Leaving the EU: Impact on the UK (17 Mar 2021)

John Redwood: ...how we can use our freedoms more widely to promote our health and better prosperity. I would draw the Government’s attention to a very important policy initiative from President Biden. They may find it surprising to see me recommending something from a Democrat President, but I think his 24 February Executive order—looking at America’s supply chains, and saying that America can do...

Offshore Wind Farms: Unexploded Ordnance (17 Mar 2021)

Lisa Cameron: ...G7 at Carbis Bay and the United Nations COP26 later this year in Glasgow, where discussions will focus on how to implement a greener future for all. The wind power potential of Scotland both onshore and offshore must play a crucial part in the drive towards net zero and beyond. We can use the opportunity to lead, by setting ambitious targets for the protection of the environment, and, in...

Electricity (1 Mar 2021)

Alan Brown: ...more than two years out of date, and blaming Brexit and covid does not really stack up. What is the timeframe for that report’s coming before Parliament? What is the mechanism for presenting the findings of the review, and what will the scrutiny arrangements be, so that the Opposition parties can challenge it? Paragraph 7.7 of the explanatory memorandum states that the cost of new...

Scottish Parliament: Managing Scotland’s Fisheries (14 Jan 2021)

Fergus Ewing: ...of the five-and-a-half-year adjustment period. The UK Government negotiated away existing quota share for white-fish stocks, which are among the most important to our fishing industry, including onshore interests, with more than 90 per cent of what is caught being landed at harbours and fish markets in Scotland and then processed here for sale. To compound those shortfalls, full access to...

Financial Services Bill: New Clause 27 - Money laundering offences: electronic money institutions, payment institutions and deposit-taking bodies (13 Jan 2021)

Pat McFadden: ..., the business of legislating can seem even more prosaic than usual, and perhaps that is even more the case with a Bill such as this one. It is a mixed bag of measures dealing with everything from onshoring various EU directives to the length of the term of office for the chief executive of the Financial Conduct Authority. Some of it is a necessary consequence of our withdrawal from the...

Defence Procurement and Supply Chains (1 Dec 2020)

Mick Whitley: ...see a haemorrhaging of jobs across the sector, with left-behind towns in the north and midlands bearing the brunt. Thousands of workers at companies such as Bentley, Airbus and Safran Nacelles now find their jobs under threat. The scale of the crisis has been starkly illustrated by the situation of Rolls-Royce, Barnoldswick, where operations have been offshored and striking workers locked...

Climate Change Assembly UK: The Path to Net Zero (26 Nov 2020)

Alistair Carmichael: ...on hydrocarbons will wind down. My constituency remains equally committed to playing a full part in energy provision for our future needs. It is therefore somewhat frustrating for us still to find that the opportunities that we have to contribute to green renewable energy in the future are somewhat frustrated by a lack of action and recognition on the part of the Government in respect of...

Offshore Wind Transmission Connections (5 Nov 2020)

Duncan Baker: ...very fixed vision of an offshore ring main has in just a few months morphed and evolved into something probably best summarised by the National Grid ESO report published last month. The report’s findings outline many of our concerns, but, as in all governance, we should not just come up with a problem—we should offer a solution. There is something there: an integrated offshore network...

RAF Valley: Funding and Employment: Jet Zero Council — [Mrs Maria Miller in the Chair] (14 Oct 2020)

Alan Brown: ...economy. At the same time, we have to recognise, and reconcile with that fact, the challenge of achieving net zero, despite an increase in demand going forward. Interestingly, that concurs with the findings of Climate Assembly UK, which recently reported. As citizens, they accept that there will be a continued increase in the use of aircraft, but there need to be changes, in terms of some...

Fisheries Bill [Lords]: New Clause 8 - Agency arrangements between sea fish licensing authorities (13 Oct 2020)

Dave Doogan: ...through an EU border control post and the importer must be notified in advance of the arrival. Notification periods vary so they will need to check with the border control post in question to find out how much notice they can give. This is a far cry from the seamless process undertaken currently by crews and hauliers supplying markets in the EU today. I seek the Minister’s assurance that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Onshore Petroleum Licensing and Drilling (13 Oct 2020)

Sinead McLaughlin: ...energy resources. Instead, the Department for the Economy has decided to waste £75,000 of taxpayers' money on a research project on the potential economic, societal and environmental impacts of onshore petroleum exploration and production of unconventional oil and gas. Let us be fair: the Department has a proven track record of wasting millions of pounds of taxpayers' money in the energy...

Alternative Fuelled Vehicles: Energy Provision (6 Oct 2020)

Matt Western: ...to take financial risks in the absence of certainty from Government. Nor should consumers, who rightly want to do the right thing, be penalised or disadvantaged by being first movers, only to find that the Government fail to match their ambition. Certainly, the industry strongly supports the decarbonisation of road transport, recognising the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, both...

Scottish Parliament: Economic Recovery Implementation Plan (12 Aug 2020)

Dean Lockhart: ...and small, across Scotland to move their businesses online. It would involve digital teams from universities, colleges, the private sector and digital graduates who may not otherwise be able to find employment at this time. The need for Scotland to rapidly increase the level of online trade and e-commerce was apparent even before the crisis. According to Nora Senior, the chair of the...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Departmental Spending (7 Jul 2020)

Alan Brown: ...budget. The nuclear fallout needs to be ended and there needs to be greater investment in renewables. If the Government are still arguing that we need a baseload, I would argue that they should be finding a route to market for pumped hydro storage, which would give the required baseload, rather than nuclear energy. The contracts for difference scheme operated by BEIS has been welcome and...

Contracts for Difference (Electricity Supplier Obligations) (Amendment) (Coronavirus) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (2 Jul 2020)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: ...has limited deployment, our 100% target for renewable power generation in 2020 looks as if it remains on track. I am sure that the Minister will agree that success with renewables, including solar, onshore and offshore wind, and tidal and thermal energy, will all be critical in demonstrating that we in the United Kingdom have shown leadership when we come to COP 26, which we look forward...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 Jun 2020)

...should be seen as an opportunity to try and make it harder for other countries to access our internal market, simply because we have a lot of members who do that reciprocally in other countries. We find that with the exports of a lot of companies working in manufacturing and heavy industry, specifically from a goods and services perspective. You can think back to the classic example of...

Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill (3 Jun 2020)

Stephen Kinnock: .... Let me begin by saying that I support wholeheartedly the aims of the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill. This is a welcome response and a much-needed one in the crisis times in which we find ourselves. However, the changes are and must be just a small part of the rescue and recovery package that will be required in the long term. This Bill will provide short-term relief from...

Green Economy - Motion to Take Note (12 Mar 2020)

the Earl of Selborne: ...a significant proportion of our entrepreneurial potential. Even our large manufacturing businesses, with a few exceptions, do not have the close links with basic and strategic research that you find in countries such as Germany. A comparison of Germany’s green economy with the United Kingdom’s is instructive. Our outstanding record of scientific findings of international significance...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (19 Dec 2019)

Tim Loughton: ...target and are determined to see it through is great credit to a Conservative Government. Renewable energy sources now account for just under 39% of our electricity generation—up from 6% in 2010. Onshore wind accounted for just 7.5 terawatts an hour in 2010, but the figure is now 30.5. The £5.8 billion that we put into the international climate fund shows us taking responsibility...
