Backbench Business: Swansea Tidal Lagoon — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (8 Mar 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: The hon. Gentlemen rose at the same time. I will, in a very biased way, give way to my hon. Friend.

Backbench Business: Swansea Tidal Lagoon — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (8 Mar 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: I agree entirely with my hon. Friend and also with the hon. Member for Gower. There is a cross-party consensus and what seems to be a rare outbreak of unanimity. Let us take that opportunity to move forward.

Backbench Business: Swansea Tidal Lagoon — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (8 Mar 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: I agree with the hon. Gentleman, and I would add that we have seen a disastrous overrun in the cost and timing in Flamanville and in Finland, so let us give the tidal lagoon a chance, because in the long run it looks like a very good investment. Over the project’s life span, it will deliver cheaper-than-wholesale electricity. The combination of the Swansea and Cardiff tidal lagoon projects,...

Backbench Business: Swansea Tidal Lagoon — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (8 Mar 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: My hon. Friend and I stand shoulder to shoulder on this issue. A positive decision on the lagoon would put a much needed tick in the Government’s green credentials and deliver a massive boost to the local economy and steel industry. This project needs and deserves rapid advance. The Government need to get off the fence and fast, because each day of delay is costing months or years of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 Mar 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: I trust that the Prime Minister will be aware that there is a critical meeting of the board of Tata in Mumbai on Tuesday. I will be flying out to Mumbai with the general secretary of the Community union to make the case for British steel. That meeting will decide the future of the Port Talbot steelworks in my constituency. Will the Prime Minister join me in exhorting Tata to stand with that...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: EU Globalisation Fund: Iron and Steel (30 Mar 2016)

Uk Steel Industry (11 Apr 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: Before I start, I want to pay tribute to the 13 steelworkers who are in the Public Gallery today along with the outstanding general secretary of the Community union, Roy Rickhuss. I also want to join the Secretary of State in paying tribute to Carwyn Jones, who has been doing a fantastic job. What a contrast to the British Government. Within days, Carwyn Jones had put £60 million on the...

Uk Steel Industry (11 Apr 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: I hope that the UK Government will take note of the fact that the Welsh Assembly Government so rapidly put £60 million on the table. The Secretary of State asked for some focused suggestions and questions, so here are three for him. First, what are the Government doing to secure the customer base—key clients such as Honda, Nissan, Jaguar Land Rover? I hope he and his colleagues are picking...

Uk Steel Industry (12 Apr 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: I wish to start today by thanking both the shadow Secretary of State, my hon. Friend the Member for Wallasey (Ms Eagle), for securing this debate, and you, Mr Speaker, for granting it. I also thank the Secretary of State for his statements yesterday and today and for attending the special meeting of the all-party group on steel yesterday afternoon. However, although I am grateful to him, l...

Uk Steel Industry (12 Apr 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: I fear that the Secretary of State has misunderstood me. I am simply saying that it is very important to be on the telephone to the customer base. [Interruption.] We on the Opposition Benches and the steel workers of this country would like a little bit more detail. [Interruption.] Ministers must forgive us for being sceptical about what they are doing or for thinking that there may be a lack...

Uk Steel Industry (12 Apr 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: I was not surprised. Let me remind the House that 80% of the Chinese steel sector is state owned. On what planet can that be considered a market economy? I leave that to the House to decide. The Secretary of State’s claims that he has been working on these things for months simply do not stack up. Yesterday, both in this House and at the APPG meeting, he claimed to have been aware of...

Uk Steel Industry (12 Apr 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: There is a stark contrast between the actions of the Welsh Government and the actions of the UK Government. There is £60 million on the table, and the Welsh Assembly was recalled, and that should have happened in Westminster, so the contrast is clear. Let us hope that the Government develop and execute a proper industrial strategy, so that the Opposition do not have to raise this matter a...

Contaminated Blood (12 Apr 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: My hon. Friend mentioned the impact on families. My constituents, David and Vincent Farrugia, tragically lost their father Barry after he contracted HIV and hepatitis C from contaminated blood. The families and the bereaved are not included in the consultation—there is no provision for children, dependants or bereaved families. Does my hon. Friend agree that children and dependants who are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Steel Industry: Government Support (13 Apr 2016)

Will the Secretary of State confirm whether he has had conversations with customers such as Honda, Nissan and Jaguar Land Rover to secure the integrity of the customer base? Yes or no.

Stephen Kinnock: To ask the Secretary of State for Wales, pursuant to the Answer of 13 April 2016 to Question 904364, whether he has contacted customers of Tata Steel's strip products division in order to secure the order book; and which customers he has so contacted.

Shipbuilding on the Clyde (25 Apr 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: The Minister has spoken about the role of steel in the frigates and other key pieces of procurement that the MOD will be undertaking, but I was not particularly comforted by his comments on the role that procurement will play in this case. Can he confirm that local content and local value will play a key role when decisions are made about procuring steel?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 May 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: Tata Steel has indicated that it wishes to complete the sale of its UK assets by the middle of June and that it wants a preferred bidder in place by the end of this month. Does the Prime Minister really think that that is a realistic timeframe and that there will be a credible process of due diligence? What steps is the Prime Minister taking to ensure that Tata Steel delivers on its promise...
