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.

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...

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...

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.

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 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.

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...

Northern England: Opportunity and Productivity - Motion to Take Note (12 Jan 2017)

Lord Monks: important, too, to remember that a lot of the companies that are engines of growth in the north are foreign owned, often European owned, but also Far Eastern owned. They include BASF, Tata and Nissan—and, of course, recently Siemens in Hull, making a huge contribution in this important year for Hull. I had hoped that our cities would reach this northern European standard. We have...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (13 Dec 2016)

Greg Clark: ...the Paris agreement. My hon. Friend the Minister for Climate Change and Industry played an important part in the climate discussions in Marrakech, and he and I had the great pleasure of opening the Siemens wind turbine factory in Hull, creating 1,000 new jobs in that great city.

National Life: Shared Values and Public Policy Priorities - Motion to Take Note (2 Dec 2016)

Baroness Bottomley of Nettlestone: ...impoverished by that environment. For 11 years, as many know, I have been chancellor of the University of Hull and Sheriff of Hull, a community for whom globalisation has not been so exciting. There has been massive investment there by Siemens; nevertheless the sense of globalisation —of jobs going elsewhere and of the world being out of your individual control—is alarming, and...

Gordon Marsden: ...that they have done? I am sorry that my on-the-ball Whip, my hon. Friend the Member for Kingston upon Hull East, is unable to be with us today, but he is at the forefront of industrial progress celebrating Siemens wind farms finally coming to fruition in his constituency, so he has a good excuse. I am grateful to all of my team, in which we have two relatively new...

Paul Maynard: ...major investments. In August, Bombardier in Derby received an order for 665 new pieces of rolling stock, delivered for Greater Anglia, which is great news for jobs and skills in the east midlands—as rail Minister, that gives me particular pleasure.

Exiting the EU and Transport (23 Nov 2016)

Chris Grayling: ...has started work on developing a new site at Widnes, which will create 600 jobs along with, crucially, a training academy.

West Anglia Taskforce Report — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (8 Nov 2016)

Joan Ryan: ...valley corridor, along the route of the west Anglia main line. It is home to the second largest industrial estate in the capital, at Brimsdown.

Also, over the past few years, in that part of the...

National College for Wind Energy (1 Nov 2016)

Gordon Marsden: ...would be essential. My hon. Friend has said that the Humber area is an ideal location for the college. Grimsby is the renewable energy capital of England, not least because of the involvement and investment of Siemens in the region since 2014. Siemens has announced its decision to invest £160 million in wind turbine production and installation facilities across two locations, and its...
