Unpaid Trial Work Periods (Prohibition) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

Alan Brown: I congratulate my hon. Friend on bringing this Bill forward. He just mentioned training, which I know about from personal experience. My son Dylan undertook unpaid training with a company that is employed by charities. It was to be a week’s unpaid training with a view to a job at the end. Does my hon. Friend agree that it is terrible that charities, which are supposed to exist to raise...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Ongoing relative tariff differential (15 Mar 2018)

Alan Brown: Without going on for too long, may I, too, thank the Clerks and the Chair? I thank the Minister for listening—I hope—and congratulate her on her appointment to the Privy Council. Like the hon. Member for Southampton, Test, I look forward to seeing the tariff cap in place, competition in the marketplace and consumers being saved money.

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Duty to consider the needs of customers in rural areas (15 Mar 2018)

Alan Brown: I welcome what the Minister said about ensuring that ECO is rolled out and that people who live in rural areas are prioritised. I realise that a cap in itself is not a means to an end in terms of ensuring effective competition and particularly helping people in rural areas, and that other Government policies are required to do that. Although, as the Minister said, the regulator needs to have...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Extension and termination of tariff cap conditions (15 Mar 2018)

Business of the House (15 Mar 2018)

Alan Brown: Constituents of mine bought a new biomass boiler, hoping to offset some of the cost by using the renewable heat incentive. The boiler was faultily installed, but after legal action, they got the boiler removed and their money back, and they have a new boiler installed. However, now that they have a replacement boiler, they have been told that they are no longer allowed to access the RHI, and...

Exiting the European Union: Support for Farmers (15 Mar 2018)

Alan Brown: Farmers need to know what a transitional deal is going to look like, what a trade deal is going to look like and about labour constraints. To go back to the question asked by my hon. Friend the Member for Airdrie and Shotts (Neil Gray), why will the Minister not listen to NFU Scotland and ensure that all agriculture powers are assigned to Scotland so that the Scottish Government can design a...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Review of competition for domestic supply contracts (13 Mar 2018)

Alan Brown: Why would it be a box-ticking exercise if we as parliamentarians set out criteria that we think can be used, but not if Ofgem sets out the criteria?

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Exemptions from the cap (13 Mar 2018)

Alan Whitehead: ...that there is. I suggest, precisely for the reasons the hon. Lady set out, that that can be problematic for those companies. Nevertheless, that is what they guarantee as part of their tariff. As far as brown energy companies that want to do a bit of greenwashing are concerned, the hon. Lady is absolutely right that if there is not enough green energy to go round they remove the portion of...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Cap on standard variable and default rates (13 Mar 2018)

Alan Brown: I rise to speak to new clause 1, which is tabled in my name. It replicates or mirrors amendments 8, 9 and 10 in trying to provide explicit support for vulnerable and disabled consumers. In the Minister’s opening remarks this morning—in private and in the evidence session—she expressed her concern to ensure that vulnerable customers are protected in future. Clearly, part of...

Spring Statement (13 Mar 2018)

Alan Brown: Would the Chancellor be good enough to either meet me or send me a letter to outline the blockers to the Ayrshire growth deal, which the UK Government have not yet committed to?

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (13 Mar 2018)

Alan Brown: Q You have already said that when the absolute cap ends, you still think there needs to be protection for vulnerable customers. Does that not suggest that the Bill is not doing enough to protect vulnerable customers? What protection do you think they need going forward?

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (13 Mar 2018)

Alan Brown: Q Are there any improvements needed to the Bill? I have a couple of suggestions and considerations. We have already heard the merits of trying to introduce what is called a relative cap to work underneath the absolute cap, and we have spoken about vulnerable customers. Are there any improvements that could be made to the Bill to protect vulnerable and disabled customers?

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (13 Mar 2018)

Alan Brown: On the cap mechanism, there has been debate about absolute versus relative, and I think there are split views across the panel. Why would we go with one versus the other? Some models are clearly more favourable to a relative cap, and others to an absolute cap. Why choose one over the other? The Government have come down for an absolute. I think that has almost got the majority view, but is it...
