Fourth Industrial Revolution - Question (15 Nov 2017)

Lord Henley: ...recognises, as I do, that changes are coming and that we must accept them and work for them. He will have seen the Made Smarter Review that we commissioned, published only a week ago by the chairman of Siemens, and I think he would accept that we will see many more jobs; I think the review estimated this could create something in the order of 135,000 new jobs. In terms of what he was...

Clean Growth Strategy (12 Oct 2017)

Claire Perry: ...the first time we have the clearest set of cross-Government ambitions, policies, initiatives and funding—[Interruption.] The hon. Lady should have come to the launch, where the chief executive of Siemens talked about how businesses such as his completely welcomed and supported the strategy and were investing in their supply chains on the back of it. We have an effective, legally...

Bae Systems Military Air & Information Sites: Job Losses (10 Oct 2017)

Claire Perry: .... We also want to explore other opportunities. I am struck by the locations of some of the plants that may be affected, and I am also struck by the investment opportunities with, for example, the Siemens investment in offshore wind turbine production in Hull. There are opportunities for skilled engineering staff right the UK and right across the region. [Interruption.] I am sorry to hear...

Modern Slavery (Victim Support) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (8 Sep 2017)

Lord Prescott: ...Humber from the development of the Humber estuary. Estuarial development affects many developing countries, so our expertise, whether in fishing, trade, nuclear power or renewable energy—now with Siemens and wind power—can be used to help developing countries meet their low-carbon targets. We have made two agreements, which involve the universities, the local authorities,...

Armed Forces: Thameslink (19 Jul 2017)

Paul Maynard: trains. Of course, people want new trains. It is right to point out that the new Thameslink trains have advanced technology; they are more spacious and modern by their very definition. We have contracted Siemens to deliver 115 of them overall. We have 37 currently in service, between Bedford and Brighton, on the Wimbledon loop and on services in Kent. We expect all Thameslink services...

Businesses and SMEs - Motion to Take Note (6 Jul 2017)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: For example, as my noble friend Lady Bloomfield mentioned, Timpson, the retailer, employs ex-offenders and offers them a new start in life. National Grid recruits young people not in employment, education or training and equips them with skills for the future. As my noble friend Lady Rock said, Siemens contributes to the increasingly vital engineering skills that are so needed...

Road Infrastructure — [Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (5 Jul 2017)

Robert Courts: ...constricted. One need only look at Carterton, where world-beating industries such as Boeing and Airbus are present on the base, but where the slip road access to the A40 is restricted; or Eynsham, where Siemens, with its word-beating medical engineering, is restricted in relation to travel on the A40. There are many other businesses there, as is shown by the West Oxfordshire business...

Energy Price Cap (3 Jul 2017)

Greg Clark: ...made not just in the deployment of renewables, but in the cost reductions that we have seen. That process has created jobs across the UK, especially in coastal towns. I had the pleasure of opening the Siemens wind blade factory in Hull, which created 1,000 good jobs. However, he is right that the detriment has been going on too long, which was why the Government asked the CMA to...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (28 Jun 2017)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: ...still have real problems in getting new business start-ups. I suspect that there is some connection. Access to skilled labour and the single market is therefore crucial to the north-east. Think about Nissan, Hitachi, Siemens or the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, which are the core drivers of our exports: all of them want to remain in the single market and the customs union. The...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Industrial Strategy (27 Jun 2017)

Greg Clark: ...example, as the hon. Lady knows. The Humber’s leading position in marine engineering has been further strengthened by the opening of factories around the offshore wind industry, including at Siemens, where 1,000 new skilled jobs have been created. This is the industrial strategy in action.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Wind Power: Seas and Oceans (20 Apr 2017)

Jesse Norman: ...that 13,700 jobs in the UK were supported by offshore wind in 2013. Recent announcements of supply chain investments and contract awards include CS Wind, 3 Sun Group and Bi-Fab in Scotland, and JDR Cables, Siemens, Granada Material Handling and Harland & Wolff in the rest of the UK.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Low-carbon Economy (14 Mar 2017)

Nick Hurd: I thank my hon. Friend for his question and wholly endorse what he says. The Secretary of State and I saw at first-hand when visiting the new Siemens offshore wind blade turbine factory in Hull just what this technology and engineering can do to inspire, in particular, young people in the area about opportunities for employment in this exciting sector.

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (13 Mar 2017)

Robert Courts: the underlying strength of our economy. My constituency has a number of high-level technical businesses that are very skilled and, in many ways, world beaters. These companies include Polar Tech and Siemens in Eynsham, STL Communications in Witney, and home-grown businesses such as Darke and Taylor in Hanborough. There are also businesses that have not been grown in West Oxfordshire but...

Amendment of the Law (8 Mar 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: ...and maths. This Budget is a bit of a damp squib. Hull will have to carry on making its own luck, as it has done for many years. We have been fortunate with the City of Culture and the investment from Siemens. In the spirit of where I started—the headscarf revolutionaries—we will continue to battle for a fair deal for our city from this Government, because we are certainly not...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (27 Feb 2017)

Lord Wigley: ...—Ford, Mars and Hoover, which was at Merthyr Tydfil at that time—and then having helped to set up a small company, Alpha-Dyffryn, which I chaired for nine years. This company was the sprat that caught the mackerel and secured the Siemens factory at Llanberis, which employs some 400 people and was established to sell to the European market. What I know about all American...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Feb 2017)

Viscount Ridley: the stock market—all of which were promised if we voted leave—we have seen an acceleration of growth, now the fastest in the G7. There have been record highs on the stock market, votes of confidence from Apple, Google, Siemens, Nissan, Snapchat, McDonalds, IBM and many other companies. There has been a manufacturing revival, a narrowing of the trade deficit as exports pick...

Technical and Further Education Bill - Second Reading (1 Feb 2017)

Lord Baker of Dorking: ...I congratulate the Government on that. They are an impressive bunch of people and I know a couple of them, who are independent people with great experience. I am thinking in particular of Toby Peyton-Jones, the HR director of Siemens. He is a trustee of one of my educational charities and has great knowledge of apprenticeships and the needs of British industry. The institute could become...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Offshore Energy: Humber (31 Jan 2017)

Nick Hurd: ...wind, and the Humber energy estuary, in my hon. Friend’s own words, is “ideally positioned” to serve that sector. The Secretary of State and I saw that when we visited the new £310 million Siemens turbine blade factory, which has created more than 1,000 very valuable new jobs in the area.

Autonomous Road Vehicles - Question (25 Jan 2017)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: noble friend talked about the new systems and operations at Heathrow and the pods being used there. There are also other parts of the rail network such as the DLR and the new rolling stock from Siemens that will be coming on line on Thameslink. There will be a use of technology and autonomous vehicles in what I believe will be controlled environments. He mentioned further innovations...

UK Maritime Industry (12 Jan 2017)

...are an awful lot of unemployed seafarers in my constituency, people who are keen to be employed, but there are not many skint shipowners. In the short time that I have left, I want to just mention that we are doing great things in Hull. Siemens is investing in offshore wind, and Mick Cash, general secretary of the RMT, has written to the Health and Safety Executive to raise the issue that...
