Official Listing of Securities, Prospectus and Transparency (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (18 Feb 2019)

Lord Bates: .... I will try to put some points on the record and address the specific technical points raised by the noble Baroness, Lady Bowles, and the noble Lord, Lord Tunnicliffe. What we are doing here is onshoring the regulations that already exist, which have gone through a scrutiny process involving the European Commission and regulators in the EU, the European Parliament and our own House. We...

Equivalence Determinations for Financial Services and Miscellaneous Provisions (Amendment etc) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (18 Feb 2019)

Lord Bates: ...County Council and returned it to the North Riding of Yorkshire, which was greeted with absolute acclamation. However, it was still not enough to get me past the 1997 general election, so I find myself here in your Lordships’ House. Indeed, the noble Lord, Lord Young, was there 40 years ago—so there is form. My point is that the Treasury is accountable to Parliament. It is possible to...

Offshore Helicopter Safety — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (6 Feb 2019)

Hannah Bardell: ...Orkney and Shetland (Mr Carmichael) rightly pointed out that they are still waiting for answers. It is a matter of deep regret that they are five and a half years on and still no further forward in finding out what happened. We now have an industry that is incredibly resilient and has done a huge amount of work to engage with the workforce, yet it still does not have confidence in Super...

Nuclear Update (17 Jan 2019)

Alan Brown: ...completed by 2024. When will we know how much money is going to be thrown at Rolls Royce for the small modular reactors that the Secretary of State mentioned? Why are the Government still blocking onshore wind in Scotland when it is clearly the cheapest mode of generation? When is the cut-off date for the ongoing discussions with Hitachi? When will the plug finally be pulled? When did the...

UN Climate Change Conference: Government Response (16 Jan 2019)

Caroline Lucas: ...of climate policy at home. We have heard some of this already, but since 2010, Ministers have scrapped zero carbon homes; sold off the Green Investment Bank; made it almost impossible to build onshore wind farms; cut off support for solar power; made no progress on phasing out fossil fuel subsidies; gone all out for fracking, which is quite extraordinary given that that is a whole new...

Financial Services (Implementation of Legislation) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (4 Dec 2018)

Baroness Bowles of Berkhamsted: ...the post-financial-crisis review of legislation. I am sorry that we have not been given more guidance to what might be objectionable than the example of location policy. Once the short-cut onshoring of bits of legislation has happened, Parliament will be left with very little scope ever to come to grips with major financial services policy. That means that what we are doing now as a...

Mortgages: Cerberus - Question (28 Nov 2018)

Lord Bates: It is a major issue. The average size of the mortgage held under UK Asset Resolution is around £120,000. People find themselves in these very difficult situations, but we are bound by the rules as they are. There will be some opportunity to offer a little bit of flexibility when the credit directive has to be onshored into UK legislation. There will be that opportunity, within tight limits,...

Public Bill Committee: Finance (No.3) Bill: Review of effects on property prices (27 Nov 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: ...companies could fall to be property-rich, or that investors in these trades might be concerned that they were, and be forced to go to lengths to explore the rules and test their situation, often finding that there was no impact. To ameliorate this, a number of respondents asked for a trading exemption to make it simple for smaller investors to understand when the rules did not apply to...

Scottish Parliament: Offshore Wind Week 2018 (20 Nov 2018)

Paul Wheelhouse: ...through the Climate Change (Emissions Reduction Targets) (Scotland) Bill, which Roseanna Cunningham introduced in May. Those targets will ensure that Scotland will be carbon neutral by 2050. Finding renewable and low-carbon solutions will remain one of our key priorities, and we will continue to champion and explore the ability of Scotland’s huge renewable energy resources to meet our...

Finance (No. 3) Bill: Basic rate limit and personal allowance (19 Nov 2018)

Alex Burghart: ...when it comes to reducing corporation tax and thus bringing greater revenue into the Exchequer. I encourage him, in the spirit of friendship, to go and talk to some of the businesses that have onshored to the UK to take advantage of our extraordinarily competitive corporation tax rates. That is why people are coming to this country to do business. It is why they are choosing to raise...

Scottish Parliament: Ferry Services (31 Oct 2018)

Rhoda Grant: I, too, pay tribute to the staff who provide lifeline ferry services, both onshore and at sea. Those who work onshore often take the brunt of the Scottish Government’s failures when ferries are delayed and cancelled, so they need our special thanks for dealing with that and for helping customers who do not get to sail. Our ferries are not an end in themselves; their purpose is to provide...

Income Tax (Charge) (29 Oct 2018)

Anna McMorrin: ...and ineptitude. This was a fantasy Budget today. It lets our communities down, it lets the people down and it lets our country down. The Government are scrambling around for any figures they can find to deceive us into thinking that austerity is ending, but thousands of families and cash-strapped councils up and down the country know that austerity is still alive and strong. In my...

Oil and Gas Industry — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (9 Oct 2018)

Alan Brown: No, because I have limited time. Where is the legacy from the UK Government? Where is the onshore infrastructure investment to support Aberdeen? It has been left to the Scottish National party Government to pick up the pieces, including the Aberdeen bypass and rail improvements. Where is the oil fund we have called for? Norway’s oil fund, started in 1990, has now topped $1 trillion in...

Shale Gas Exploration: Planning Permission (12 Sep 2018)

Claire Perry: ...Some talk as if we are not in a country that prides itself on environmental regulation, but we have the strongest environmental regulatory regime for offshore oil and gas production in the world. I find it perverse that political parties north of the border promote offshore oil and gas and those regulatory controls with gusto, but when it comes to applying exactly the same—indeed, more...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Wind Power: Expenditure (31 Jul 2018)

Claire Perry: ...its predecessor (Department of Energy and Climate Change) contribute to. The IEA’s database allows users to track trends in spending by energy technology in IEA countries back to 1974. You can find the information you require at: http://www.iea.org/statistics/rdd/. Whilst, the IEA’s Database is the most complete and best available historical record, given the long time period, the...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Wind Power: Expenditure (30 Jul 2018)

Claire Perry: a) Subsidies The value of subsidy schemes which support renewable generation technologies, such as onshore wind, are levied on consumer electricity bills. b) Investment & c) Research and Development There is no single data repository for historical information on cross-government investment into energy research, development and demonstration (RD&D). The best available record of government...

Wylfa Nuclear Power Project: Taxpayer Liability for Safety — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (24 Jul 2018)

Alan Brown: ...project if the price is too high.” It seems, based on that recommendation, that the Committee must by default be against this project continuing, as it clearly cannot be competitive compared with onshore wind. Has the Minister consulted the Committee on the recent developments in the likely cost of Wylfa? I would not want to see job losses anywhere. I represent a deindustrialised...

Office for Budget Responsibility — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Jul 2018)

Kirsty Blackman: ...talked about. The Scottish Fiscal Commission is structurally and operationally independent of the Scottish Government, and it produces robust forecasts about devolved revenues, spending and onshore GDP. The interesting thing about it is that because it was formed fairly recently, we can talk about how it was formed and the decisions that were made about it. When the Scottish Government...

Construction Industry Training Board HQ (17 Jul 2018)

Henry Bellingham: ...with the industry and get its support. Obviously, the consensus process takes place regularly, and in 2017 consensus had to be built with the industry at a time when many smaller firms were finding the levy onerous, and a number of larger construction and civil engineering businesses were making it very clear that they wanted CITB to change. They all took the view—and I think the...

Non-EEA Visas: Inshore Fishing — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Douglas Ross: ...a new solution or to consider the points of that committee, because it will surely come up with the same answers we have. This is an immediate problem, so we do not need to wait until September to find out what will happen and whether it will get worse. This problem exists now, and it also has a solution now. We do not need to wait for that committee to tell us the answer, because it is...
