COP26: Limiting Global Temperature Rises (21 Oct 2021)

Barry Gardiner: ..., where the tides are coming in and going out, to where it is needed around the globe. The COP has to deliver on these main things. Powering past coal is absolutely vital. The announcement from China that it would no longer fund coal-fired power generation in other countries was a critical step, but we now need China, India and Australia to get on board with the powering past coal...

Protecting Britain’s Steel Industry (21 Jun 2021)

Barry Gardiner: ...well done to the Secretary of State—it looks as if she has engineered a situation where our steel exporters will not only be undermined in their own domestic market by cheap subsidised steel from China and the far east; they will also face a 25% tariff to enter the US, just as their EU competitors will face no barriers at all. The incompetence is staggering. The sector employs 33,000...

Global Britain (30 Jan 2020)

Barry Gardiner: ...and Huawei have arrogated to themselves enormous power. They are able to stand up to sovereign Governments, if not always their own, and to undermine fiscal and public policy. Countries such as China are emerging from non-market economy status with labour and utility costs that enable them to dump subsidised products on to western markets that undercut our domestic producers. The response...

International Climate Action (26 Sep 2019)

Barry Gardiner: ...breakdown will be catastrophic. The purpose of the UN climate action summit was to spur on greater climate ambition towards that aim, but none of the world’s large polluters met the challenge. China, India and the EU were all unable to announce tougher nationally determined contributions. Brazil and the USA refused even to turn up. Our country must step forward to fill that vacuum of...

Leaving the EU: European Union (Withdrawal) Act (14 Jan 2019)

Barry Gardiner:, often in the middle of an academic year, and then to pay another full year’s fees before they are classed as illegal overstayers. No wonder students from key future trading partners in China and India are now turning to Australia, Canada and the US as their first choices for higher education and research. [Interruption.] The Under-Secretary of State for International Trade, the...

Us Steel and Aluminium Tariffs (4 Jun 2018)

Barry Gardiner: yesterday afternoon. He is a very courteous man, but no amount of courtesy can hide the fact that he and his party have a record of failure when it comes to defending our steel industry. When China began dumping its over-production into the European market back in 2015, it was the Secretary of State’s Government who opposed the European Union taking stronger defence measures and who...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Regulations under Part 1 (30 Jan 2018)

Barry Gardiner: ...those new regulations to any scrutiny will come through the procedure that we enshrine in this Bill. The WTO lists 10 countries that are in the process of acceding to the GPA: Albania, Australia, China, Georgia, Jordan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Oman, Russia, Tajikistan and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Five other WTO members have undertaken commitments in their WTO accession...

International Trade: Topical Questions (11 Jan 2018)

Barry Gardiner: ...has repeatedly complained that the Government are not prepared to impose penalties on exports from countries with significant market distortions. America is clear, having imposed penalties on China under section 232, and the EU is clear, having recently voted to pass new anti-dumping rules, but the Secretary of State has constantly ducked the issue and refused to say what his Department...

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Barry Gardiner: ...Paper should set out what the UK’s future policy on trade defence instruments will be. The EU currently has in place a series of trade defence measures, such as anti-dumping measures against China—and, to a lesser degree, India and Malaysia—on steel, other metals, and solar panels. The UK has famously opposed such measures at the EU. Now that we will be able to set our own trade...

The Secretary of State Was Asked: WTO Rules (23 Mar 2017)

Barry Gardiner: .... If there is to be a balance, how many specialist staff has he recruited to deploy successful anti-dumping measures and protect vital UK jobs in the steel and ceramics industries from dumping by China?

Written Answers — Department for International Trade: EU External Trade: Solar Power (13 Jan 2017)

Barry Gardiner: To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, what steps he is taking to include representatives of the solar industry in trade discussions with China.

Hinkley Point C (15 Sep 2016)

Barry Gardiner: ...whether the Government were concerned about the security of the intellectual property associated with the EPR reactor? If so, was he aware that two such reactors are already under construction in China, in the form of the Taishan 1 and 2? Fifthly, were the Government concerned with the potential for a cyber-attack? If so, did the Secretary of State not consider that, given the importance...

Paris Agreement on Climate Change (7 Sep 2016)

Barry Gardiner: I beg to move, That this House notes that the USA and China have both ratified the Paris Agreement on climate change; regrets that the Government has not accepted the Opposition’s offer of support for immediate commencement of domestic procedures to ratify the Paris Agreement; further notes that if the UK lags behind its G20 partners in ratifying the Paris Agreement it risks losing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Net Migration Figures: International Students (11 Jan 2016)

Barry Gardiner: Is the Minister not concerned that the word has increasingly gone out to countries such as India and China that Britain is no longer as welcoming a place for international students, and that that is affecting our long-term business relationships quite seriously?

Control of Offshore Wind Turbines Bill (16 Jan 2015)

Barry Gardiner: ...know only too well that the Chinese have in fact said that their emissions will peak no later than 2030, with the expectation that they may well peak earlier. In relation to the carbon footprint of China, they are operating at a far lower per capita level than we are.

Energy Bill: Clause 1 — Decarbonisation (4 Jun 2013)

Barry Gardiner: ...only on our own energy policy here in the UK, but much more widely in terms of the exports we can make abroad and the impact we can make on climate change across the globe and in countries such as China and India, which will be using coal for the next 30 or 40 years. That is the true prize. Our own energy consumption and our own emissions are small compared with those of the rest of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: New Clause 8 — Power to make capacity market rules (3 Jun 2013)

Barry Gardiner: put on the record that coal is the energy of the future for the next 40 years; not necessarily in this country, but around the world. Unless we develop CCS and export it to such countries as China and India, which are going to be using coal, the future will be bleak for all of us. It is imperative to incentivise CCS, which is why amendment 179, in conjunction with amendments 148 and...

Low-Carbon Growth Links (China) (18 Apr 2013)

Barry Gardiner: ...right hon. Gentleman genuinely believes that the expertise that this country has built up both from the North sea oilfields and in drilling in that technology is not something that we can export to China in helping them to develop shale gas?

Low-Carbon Growth Links (China) (18 Apr 2013)

Barry Gardiner: ...all that the Chair of the Select Committee, the hon. Member for South Suffolk (Mr Yeo), has said, particularly about the very positive engagement between our Foreign and Commonwealth Office and China. I address my remarks to the Minister in particular, as this is an area in which the Government need to do more. The Government now have a strong link and positive engagement with India, and...

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (18 Apr 2013)

Barry Gardiner: ...much more carefully at the principles of equity when we consider how one reaches a just settlement in this area. For example, in discussions that are often entered into about what is happening in China and India—we will debate China more specifically later—we often say, “These are the emerging economies and emerging powers and, of course, China is building so many more coal-fired...
