European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (30 Jan 2018)

Lord Davies of Stamford: My Lords, my view is that Brexit is a real and present danger to the prosperity of the country, to future public services, given the likelihood that tax revenues will not be as high as they otherwise would be, to our influence in the world, to the stability of Europe and, not least, to the personal opportunities open to our people now and in future generations. I feel it is my patriotic duty...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Michelle Donelan: Siemens in my constituency has been shortlisted to provide the signalling for HS2, and Chippenham hopes to benefit from the fact that 70% of the new jobs will be outside London. Does my right hon. Friend agree that this project has the potential to benefit the south-west as well?

Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (Science and Technology Report) - Motion to Take Note (20 Dec 2017)

Lord Berkeley: ...or five different suppliers—at least European, if not world suppliers—providing the kit. For the last 10 years, the industry has been fighting, because these suppliers all produce wonderful kit but it is not interoperable. If we got Siemens equipment on a train and Alstom on the track, it did not work. The European Commission and our Government have been trying very hard to get...

Inequalities - Motion to Take Note (30 Nov 2017)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: ...both financially and in terms of energy, in ensuring that these go forward. I hope that Yorkshire comes forward with a deal. Hull should certainly be a part of that, and I look to the noble Lord, Lord Prescott, to use his good offices for Hull and other areas of Yorkshire to come forward. The Siemens issue, as he said, makes Hull unique—as does the noble Lord himself and the lack of...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (28 Nov 2017)

Ben Bradley: ...that lead to long-term employment. I would like to see direct business involvement in education. For example, the University of Lincoln currently offers an engineering programme delivered directly by Siemens. Such involvement allows companies to shape their own highly skilled workforces and provides young people with an open door to quality, long-term employment. Apprenticeships are also a...

Industrial Strategy (27 Nov 2017)

Fiona Bruce: I welcome the strategy. Siemens, which has a pioneering digital factory in Congleton, is one of the companies that has led on the recent “Made Smarter” review. Does the Secretary of State agree with the principles behind the review, and that priority should be given to upskilling 1 million industrial workers to enable digital technologies to be successfully exploited, and so put...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (23 Nov 2017)

Sajid Javid: ...: up. Borrowing: down. Last year, the British economy grew faster than that of any other G7 nation. This week, the CBI said that manufacturing order books have not been this full for almost 30 years. Siemens has said that it is cutting jobs on the continent, but expanding its UK operation, investing more money and creating even more jobs. Whatever way we look at it, this is a Government...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Digital Technology: Job Creation (23 Nov 2017)

Lord Henley: In the debate of 15 November I spoke about the recently published Made Smarter Review (30th Oct) led by Juergen Maier, CEO of Siemens UK, which the government commissioned. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, along with colleagues across government including the Department for Education and Department for Culture, Media & Sport, are...

Scottish Parliament: Burntisland Fabrications (22 Nov 2017)

Keith Brown: ...the company in administration immediately, and to secure the space for negotiations to continue and a positive solution to be found. Those discussions with SSE, the partners in Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Ltd, Siemens, Seaway Heavy Lifting, BiFab and the trade unions—predominantly Unite and the GMB—also provided us with a clearer picture of the nature of the financial position...

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 accross the UK and right across the region. [Interruption.] I am sorry...

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...
