Renewable Energy Generation: Island Communities — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (4 Jul 2017)

Alistair Carmichael: ...sense, so we have looked for different ways around that over the years. Back in the days of the late Malcolm Wicks, we tried the idea of a cap on transmission charges. That was brought in by him and the then Labour Government, and was then extended by Chris Huhne when he was Secretary of State for Energy, but that in itself did not provide the solution we had hoped for. We then moved on to...

Armed Forces: Historical Cases (23 Feb 2017)

Steve Pound: A year, as the hon. Gentleman rightly says. Far be it from me to further impugn the reputation of Chris Huhne, but the temptation is there, and it cannot be denied that he was the Minister who came up with the idea. I have to say that those of us here have our own share of responsibility for not making more of an issue of it at the time. I think we can begin to understand why it was so...

Feed-in Tariffs (Amendment) (No. 3) Order 2015 — Motion to Annul (2 Feb 2016)

Lord Teverson: ...the Benches opposite, the whole point of feed-in tariffs is that they should come down in order to reflect the cost of investment by producers in that industry. That is what the Secretaries of State, Chris Huhne and then Ed Davey did during the coalition Government period. Producers should not receive more money than they deserve. The point is that it was done in such a way that the...

Renewable Energy — Question (24 Jun 2015)

Viscount Ridley: I thank my noble friend for that reply and declare my interests in energy as listed in the register. Does he agree that the Ed Miliband/Chris Huhne energy policy that he inherited has been extremely effective at taking money from the poor and giving it to the rich but much less effective at decarbonisation—and particularly at decarbonisation in an affordable way? The numbers he gave for...

Navitus Bay Wind Farm (15 Jun 2015)

Conor Burns: ...previous Parliament, the issue dominated our lives. I looked this afternoon at the number of times I have raised the issue. I did so first on 12 July 2011, when the former Member for Eastleigh, Chris Huhne, was the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change. I spoke again on 4 July 2012, 19 November 2013 and 5 December 2013. I posed written questions on 11 June 2014. I raised it...

Opposition Day — [16th Allotted Day]: Electoral Registration (4 Feb 2015)

Matthew Offord: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. This afternoon, the Serjeant at Arms confirmed to me that the former Member for Eastleigh, Mr Chris Huhne, had applied for and been granted a parliamentary pass. Given the low esteem with which many Members of this House are held by our constituents in regard to poor behaviour, is there any method that we can use to rescind that application to ensure that...

Bill Presented — General Practitioner Surgeries (Rural Areas) Bill: Recall of MPs Bill (21 Oct 2014)

Greg Clark: To correct the shadow Minister and for the information of the House, I point out that there are in fact six Members of Parliament who would have been caught by the provisions. I mentioned Chris Huhne and Eric Illsley on the imprisonment aspect. In terms of suspension, there would have been four more—Teresa Gorman, the right hon. Member for Leicester East (Keith Vaz), Denis MacShane and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Vasiliki Pryce: Prosecution Costs (14 Oct 2014)

Philip Davies: In the cases of Chris Huhne and Vicky Pryce, the prosecution costs application to the court was £108,541 for Mr Huhne and £48,695 for Ms Pryce, despite the fact that Mr Huhne had no trials and Ms Pryce had two. Given that the court costs to the Ministry of Justice for Ms Pryce’s two trials were an estimated £30,000 on top of that, can the Solicitor-General explain the...

Scottish Parliament: United Nations Climate Summit 2014 (1 Oct 2014)

Tavish Scott: ...I remind him that, when he was more recently an environment minister, the then environment secretary in the UK Government took him to international conferences as very much part of the delegation. Chris Huhne was mindful of taking the Scottish minister, who happened at that time to be Mr Stevenson. That is the right approach. It is disappointing that the Government lodged a motion that was...

Written Answers — Justice: Chris Huhne and Vicky Pryce (21 Jul 2014)

Philip Davies: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what costs his Department incurred in relation to each stage of the judicial proceedings of the cases of (a) Christopher Huhne and (b) Vasiliki Pryce.

Philip Davies: To ask the Attorney-General what costs his Department has incurred in prosecuting the case of (a) Christopher Huhne and (b) Vasiliki Pryce.

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Votes at 16 (6 May 2014)

Andrew Slaughter: ...significant among the young, who are perhaps not so world-weary, slightly more idealistic, and therefore more shocked by the way in which politicians sometimes behave. People will have heard the exculpatory comments of Chris Huhne during his media exercise yesterday; I think we must all say that sometimes we politicians do not do ourselves any favours at all. Sitting back, doing nothing...

Clause 3 — Conviction of serious offence (28 Feb 2014)

Thomas Docherty: some of the cases that we have—regrettably—seen in recent years, in this Parliament and in other United Kingdom Parliaments and Assemblies. There was, for instance, the outrageous case of Chris Huhne, who perjured himself, and Opposition Members in the House of Commons as well as Conservatives in the other place have been jailed in connection with expenses. I think that...

Backbench Business — Rural Communities (9 Jan 2014)

Nia Griffith: ...of houses have to order and switch at the same time, which raises competition issues. How can anyone escape from the provider they are forced to take on when they move into a property? I raised this matter with the former Member Chris Huhne and with the regulator, but it was not entirely sorted out. We need a regulator that can deal with these off-grid issues, which is something Labour is...

Recall of Elected Representatives: Schedule 4 — Application and modification of emissions limit duty (4 Dec 2013)

Mark Reckless: not coming on stream. It is partly not coming on stream because the Minister has said, “If you bring it on stream, we will give you a great subsidy as long as you wait for a few years and do not bring it on now.” Even Chris Huhne, who was at least an economist, thought that was madness. Now, we are pushing that approach forward in the capacity market, stopping capacity...

Energy and Climate Change: Topical Questions (28 Nov 2013)

Caroline Flint: ..., the right hon. Member for Sevenoaks (Michael Fallon), who said that it was an “absurd” waste of money and “assisted suicide” for British manufacturers, or his Liberal Democrat predecessor Chris Huhne, who said, “We do not need it to drive decarbonisation… It was a straightforward revenue-raising measure by the Tories”?

Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill — Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (12 Nov 2013)

Lord Pannick: abolish the defence of marital coercion. That was after the defence was unsuccessfully relied upon by Vicky Pryce at her trial in March for taking speeding points on behalf of her husband, Mr Chris Huhne. I have tabled this amendment to find out when the Government hope to come to a conclusion on this matter. Given the time, I shall deal with it briefly. Members of the Committee will...

[Nadine Dorries in the Chair] — Energy Prices, Profits and Poverty (7 Nov 2013)

Peter Lilley: ...way, we should be doing that, and I urge the Government to tackle that with renewed vigour. I know that my right hon. Friend the Minister is personally keen to achieve that, and to make good the unnecessary 18-month moratorium that Chris Huhne imposed on this country; I think that was a greater crime than his speeding issues. We should recognise that the transmission costs are going up in...

Energy Bill — Report (3rd Day) (6 Nov 2013)

Lord Whitty: ...system. I am not blaming everybody in the Government. I am not even blaming every DECC Minister, because I know DECC has fought quite hard on this front from time to time. I know that it was Her Majesty’s Treasury that forced Chris Huhne to abandon Warm Front. I also know that there are attacks on Ed Davey and the DECC position which are now expressed in terms of removing green...
