Countries including Australia have already made clear their desire to proceed quickly with a new trade deal for the...

Exiting the European Union (5 Sep 2016)

Diana R. Johnson: I congratulate my parliamentary neighbour on his appointment. As he knows, the Humber estuary is fast becoming the UK energy estuary, with Siemens investing massively in Hull and having the potential to export to the single market.

Energy and Climate Change: EU Referendum: Policy Implications (14 Jul 2016)

Andrea Leadsom: ...investment—that is clearly not the case. We are attracting a huge amount of investment in offshore wind.

Onshore wind in the UK has been a huge success...

EU Referendum: Energy and Environment (12 Jul 2016)

Department of Energy and Climate Change: Energy Spending Priorities: Investors and Consumers (4 Jul 2016)

Graham Stuart: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. Just before the debate finishes, the shadow Secretary of State said that investment in Hull by Siemens was “on hold”—I think those were the words—but investment there most definitely is not.
