Energy Security and Net Zero: Public Ownership of Energy System (21 May 2024)

Kerry McCarthy: ...a similar project in York, because it has been such a success in Bristol. But why should it be Vattenfall, a 100% Swedish state-owned firm, rather than a British equivalent, such as Labour’s GB Energy, that benefits? Why can Swedish taxpayers profit from investing in our future, but British taxpayers cannot?

Economic Growth (Regulatory Functions) (Amendment) Order 2024 - Motion to Approve (Continued) (15 Apr 2024)

Lord Leong: My Lords, I thank the Minister for introducing the regulation and all noble Lords who have spoken. Every day, we hear of sewage dumping. On average, a sewage dumping event now takes place every two and a half minutes. The lack of investment in our water systems over the past 14 years is a scandal that is increasingly hard to ignore. Billions have been extracted in shareholder dividends and...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Economy (13 Mar 2024)

Rhoda Grant: ...Scottish Labour Party would not do that. We would create great British energy, which would be headquartered in Scotland and would deliver 5,000 jobs and a clean energy system by 2030. If we use a GB energy company to empower our local communities, we would not have the squandered opportunities that we see with ScotWind. We would have local generation, which has brought huge benefits to...

Wes Streeting: ..., which sees Government and business working hand in hand to get our economy growing again; our national wealth fund to harness investment in the green jobs of the future; our plan to switch on GB Energy, in order to invest in our energy security; our plan to insulate 5 million homes, bringing down household energy bills for good; our plan to get Britain back to work, because we understand...

Income Tax (Charge) ( 7 Mar 2024)

Steve McCabe: ...services. Where in the Budget was the support for skills investment, which is essential if we are to grow and provide jobs for the future? I heard Conservative Members laugh yesterday at the idea of GB Energy, just as they used to laugh at a non-dom tax. GB Energy will allow us to take control of our energy sector and protect us from hostile powers, and will help to wean us off fossil...

Scottish Parliament: Oil and Gas Industry ( 6 Mar 2024)

Daniel Johnson: ...at the end of the next parliamentary session and will provide the revenue to deliver the Labour Party’s Green Prosperity Plan, which will support 50,000 clean energy jobs in Scotland, create GB Energy as a publicly-owned energy company, bring down energy bills and deliver the just transition that Scotland’s climate needs, and that workers in the north east deserve, so that no community...

Farming ( 4 Mar 2024)

Daniel Zeichner: ...that at least half of all food in our hospitals and prisons is locally produced or certified to higher environmental production standards. We will deliver price stability for farmers by establishing GB Energy, a new publicly owned energy company that will direct public and private investment to harness clean, homegrown wind, wave, solar and nuclear power. We will have energy independence,...

Scottish Parliament: Oil and Gas Industry (Profits) (22 Feb 2024)

Anas Sarwar: ...on the record profits of energy giants will be spent on. It will mean more jobs, lower bills, greater energy security and the delivery of a just transition for Scotland. It will mean investment in GB energy—[ Interruption .]

Steel Industry: Wales — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 Feb 2024)

Sarah Jones: ...clarity of vision on steel. We will invest to unlock private sector investment and we will work hand in glove with the private sector. We will use our flagship policies—the national wealth fund, GB Energy becoming a clean energy superpower, grid reform and an industrial strategy—to make the UK a place to invest in, not a place to leave. Once again I thank my hon. Friend the Member for...

Offshore Petroleum Licensing Bill: Clause 1 - Duty to invite applications for offshore licences (20 Feb 2024)

Alan Whitehead: ...industries, it will launch a British jobs bonus to ensure that the supply chain benefits of renewable investment finally come to our shores, and it will create a new publicly owned energy company, GB Energy, headquartered in Scotland, to invest in home-grown clean energy and give us real energy independence. That is the answer that the country needs and that the communities who have served...

BACKBENCH business: Living Standards — [David Mundell in the Chair] ( 1 Feb 2024)

Michael Shanks: ...-worker legislation we have seen over the past 14 years. We have also set out how we will bring down energy bills by building cheaper and cleaner power across the country, through the creation of GB Energy, a publicly owned clean energy generation company headquartered in Scotland—something that I am sure my colleagues from Scotland will warmly welcome. We will also look to reform things...

Scottish Parliament: European Union (30 Jan 2024)

Alex Rowley: I am glad that Mr Stewart said that there has been an impact “across these islands”. I acknowledge that, but I point out that the waste that we have seen in Scotland because we have not prioritised our public services, or used the powers that we have in Parliament, is part of the problem. For as long as we have a Government that will not accept its responsibility for running public...

Scottish Parliament: Green Economy (24 Jan 2024)

Sarah Boyack: ...chaotic on the economy, but we are talking about long-standing failings of the SNP. It is utterly hypocritical to attack the Labour Government that we are campaigning for. We would establish GB energy, which would be based in Scotland. It would be a home-grown, publicly owned energy champion for clean energy generation and would build the jobs and supply chains that we urgently need. If we...

Offshore Petroleum Licensing Bill (22 Jan 2024)

Matt Western: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for South Dorset (Richard Drax). The irony will not be lost on you of all people, Mr Deputy Speaker, that we are reduced in number in Parliament today by the impact of Storm Isha, the origins of which lie in climate change, yet we are debating the Government’s desire to increase the global supply of oil and gas. It is also damning that the...

Energy Security and Net Zero: Net Zero Targets: Businesses (16 Jan 2024)

Graham Stuart: .... Gentleman for his question, which has a sort of comic element given Labour’s monumental failure to deliver renewables when it was in power, coupled with the fact that it wants to bring forward GB Energy. That, as his left-wing colleague, the hon. Member for Cynon Valley (Beth Winter) just said, would be public investment. It would drive out private investment and destroy the...

Cop28 (16 Nov 2023)

Fleur Anderson: ...decade under our warm homes plan, which will cut bills by up to £500 and create 4 million jobs. We will act fast to lead the world as a clean and cheap energy superpower by 2030. We will establish GB Energy, a new home-grown publicly owned champion of clean energy generation, so that we can be really world-leading in the action that we take at home. We will deliver thousands of...

Economic Growth (14 Nov 2023)

Rachel Reeves: ...’s energy Bill “wouldn’t necessarily bring energy bills down”, whereas Labour has plans for clean power by 2030, a national wealth fund, insulating homes to lower bills, and the creation of GB Energy. There is no focus from the Government on industrial strategy or on putting an industrial strategy council on a statutory footing to help drive the growth and investment that we need....

King’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (13 Nov 2023)

Lord McNicol of West Kilbride: ...will double onshore wind and green hydrogen, triple solar production and quadruple offshore wind capacity. We need leadership on energy security and the environment by lowering bills through GB energy and insulating homes as part of a green prosperity plan. Delaying action on climate and delaying investment in green energy could increase national debt by billions. Sending mixed signals to...

Making Britain a Clean Energy Superpower ( 9 Nov 2023)

Ed Miliband: ..., not with one-off, ad-hoc investments, but a proper plan. We would be investing in ports, our steel industry and electric battery factories. We would also have a new publicly owned energy company, GB Energy, which I am glad the Secretary of State mentioned. It would be partnering the private sector in the industries of the future. The Government object to GB Energy, because they say that...

Business of the House ( 9 Nov 2023)

Lucy Powell: ...bosses’ bonuses and clean up our rivers; end non-dom tax breaks and have more doctors and teachers; change planning laws to build more affordable homes; levy a proper windfall tax; and set up GB energy. We would make work pay, legislate for proper leasehold reform and rights for renters, tackle crime and violence against women and girls, introduce a skills and growth levy, and pass real...
