Emissions and Vehicle Type Approval — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (20 Apr 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: ...quality domestically? I have to say, I felt he did not set out the full detail in this Chamber yesterday.

Will it include measures to reduce other barriers to electric vehicle uptake? Will it include extending clean air zones to...

Diesel Vehicle Scrappage Scheme — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (19 Apr 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: ...Commission reported in 2016 that around four fifths of road traffic nitrogen oxide levels come from diesel-powered vehicles. Decisions have been taken in the past to incentivise the ownership of diesel-fuelled private cars, which reflected the urgent need at the time to act on the threat of CO2. That worked, because that is now down more than a third since 2000. This is not just about...

Bus Services Bill [Lords]: National strategy (27 Mar 2017)

Andrew Jones: ...nightmare to change the system. Having said that, we are considering how to reform the BSOG operation. The grant pays a flat 34.57p a litre in subsidy, which is why it used to be called the fuel duty rebate.

Intellectual Property (Unjustified Threats) Bill [Lords]: Fuel Poverty (21 Mar 2017)

Public Bill Committee: Bus Services Bill: National strategy (16 Mar 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: ...transport should not be available through the bus pass scheme.

It is a rebate paid directly to operators and dates from a time when it was mainly an accounting transaction within the public sector. Of...

Class 4 National Insurance Contributions - Statement (15 Mar 2017)

Lord Marlesford: ...Labour’s neck for a very long while. As for filling the gap, did my noble friend notice the suggestion that I made yesterday that one of the easiest things to do is to reverse the freeze on road fuel duty, which would do less than make up for inflation? An increase of 10p a litre would produce £4.6 billion of revenue this year, next year and every year.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (15 Mar 2017)

Theresa May: I will tell the right hon. Gentleman what we have delivered for the low paid. We have frozen VAT and fuel duty, and every basic rate taxpayer has had a tax cut worth £1,000. We have taken more than 3 million people out of paying income tax altogether. That is what we have done for the low paid. On schools, 1.8 million more children are now in good or outstanding schools. I want a good...

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (14 Mar 2017)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: .... As she said, we have provided some very welcome seed funding for women returners. This is an area that I am very keen on too.

Amendment of the Law (8 Mar 2017)

Sky/21ST Century Fox: Proposed Merger: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill (6 Mar 2017)

Greg Knight: ...future point in time? I accept that it makes sense to increase significantly the provision of the infrastructure required to support the charging of electric vehicles.

Why are we not also going to require large fuel retailers to do other things for the benefit of all...

Gentleman knows,...

Armed Forces: Historical Cases (23 Feb 2017)

James Brokenshire: ...clear. The legacy of the past continues to cast a shadow over our society in Northern Ireland. It retains the ability to destabilise politics and it has the capacity to be used by those who wish to fuel division and promote terrorism to achieve their objectives. Of course, people are always going to retain their own views of the past, which will be shaped by their own experiences of it. I...
