Global Energy Sector - Question for Short Debate (15 Jun 2022)

Baroness Blake of Leeds: uniquely badly placed to cope and to act, but, as the noble Lord, Lord Teverson, said, we need to keep our focus on optimism as we go forward. We cannot simply go from a high-carbon, unjust, unfair and unequal country to a zero-carbon, unjust, unfair and unequal country. We need urgent answers from the Government on next steps. Although much has happened on the world stage since the...

War Pensions and Armed Forces Compensation Scheme Payments (28 Mar 2022)

Owen Thompson: ...otherwise, as social media exploded with veterans who had experienced the same issues as Garry and were dismayed by the former Leader of the House’s flippant dismissal. Dozens contacted me directly to set the record straight: the problem was systematic and they were the very proof of that. The veterans whom I have spoken to have been in all ranks of our forces, including majors and...

Financial Statement (23 Mar 2022)

Alison Thewliss: ...20 a week—a lifeline to families. This UK Government should be doing the same. Taking 5p off fuel is something, but it does not help those who are paying for trains and buses. The Chancellor cut air passenger duty during COP26 but he still offers nothing for the millions of commuters who use public transport every day. I do not know if the Chancellor has ever had a prepayment meter—I...

Multi-hospital NHS Trusts: Transportation: Smart Road Pricing (9 Mar 2022)

Gareth Bacon: ...road danger and other factors in an integrated way.” In the same document, which is revealing of the Mayor’s thinking, he says that people need to address “the fundamentally inadequate and unfair way in which road use is paid for in London, with motorists paying too little, and in effect being subsidised by public transport fare payers. Measures such as road user charging (where...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Traffic reduction policies in line with 2030 net zero modelling (2): Traffic reduction policies in line with 2030 net zero modelling (2) (25 Feb 2022)

Sadiq Khan: ...s pathways to net zero by 2030 considered various approaches to offsetting emissions, both in the capital and beyond it. Technologies that remove greenhouse gases can be used for offsets, such as direct air capture with carbon storage, bioenergy with carbon capture and storage at industrial power sites, and enhanced weathering. However, I recognise that these technologies are still in...

Motor Vehicle Tests (Diesel Particulate Filters) (8 Feb 2022)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Consideration Stage (1 Feb 2022)

Philip McGuigan: ...amendment No 15, as we believe that we should be able to explore options for the removal of gas beyond land use and deforestation. There are methods of removing greenhouse gas, including methods of direct air capture. While the technology is expensive, making the amendment will keep our options open, should, as, I expect, will happen, science and technology advance and make progress on...

Cop26: COP26 Commitments: Carbon Capture and Sequestration (19 Jan 2022)

Alan Brown: The Scottish carbon cluster site would address Scotland’s two biggest greenhouse gas emitters. It would unlock 30% of the UK’s carbon dioxide storage capability and combine hydrogen production, direct air capture and a shipping terminal to serve the rest of the UK in terms of carbon dioxide storage. Why then was the Scottish cluster relegated to reserve status and what representation has...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 Update (11 Jan 2022)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...situation remains very challenging, not least for the national health service, some very early indications in the data offer some encouragement. First, although it is always difficult to prove a direct causal link between any specific action or measure and subsequent outcomes, there is reason to be optimistic that protective measures, the behavioural response of the general public and the...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Energy Transition Projects (11 Jan 2022)

Allan Dorans: I thank the Minister for his response and his kind wishes. The UK Government have decided not to rethink and reverse their decision not to fund the carbon capture, utilisation and storage facility at St Fergus, and the Chancellor has failed to match the Scottish Government’s £500 million investment in a just transition fund for the north-east and Moray. By deploying CCUS, hydrogen and...

Scotland: Economic Recovery and Renewal - Motion to Take Note (9 Dec 2021)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: ...Lady Fraser’s remarks and those of the noble Lord, Lord McNicol. My noble friend Lady Fraser also asked a question on the link to the national grid. On the back of the high-profile COP 26, chaired by the UK in Glasgow, energy is certainly one area where Scotland can be a world leader in the transition to net zero. We have all the natural resources and existing infrastructure, plus the...

Energy-intensive Industries — [Caroline Nokes in the Chair] (24 Nov 2021)

Alan Brown: remarks, and I do not want to be too flippant, because this is a very important debate. We need to see support for ceramics and manufacturing, and we need to look at how we decarbonise. Carbon capture has been mentioned. I urge the Minister to reconsider the disgraceful decision to make the Scottish carbon capture cluster a reserved cluster. That should have been given the go-ahead and...

Nuclear Energy (Financing) Bill (3 Nov 2021)

James Daly: ...(Peter Aldous). I wanted to take part in this debate not because of any great knowledge of the nuclear industry, but because of the impact that it has on my region and the people in it.

We constantly strive to find new industries—new technologies—or developing existing industries to provide the high-skilled, high-paid jobs that...
