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.

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

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.

British business did not respond to the call for evidence and, as our chairman has said, while SMEs evidently value European funding and apply for it, larger British companies do not.
