Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Committee (2nd Day)(Continued) (17 May 2018)

Baroness Worthington: In the absence of the noble Lord, Lord Lucas, I shall speak to Amendment 59 and the associated amendments in this group. Here we turn to Clause 10 concerning large fuel retailers and the desire of the Government to take powers that may require them to install certain forms of charging infrastructure. We have debated whether they may be electric or hydrogen, and I do not think I feel 100%...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (17 May 2018)

Baroness Worthington: ...from the department as to what the regulations will contain. It is simply not good enough, given the amount of money and resource that this is taking at a time when time is so scarce. Given the preoccupation with Brexit, it is, frankly, a dereliction of duty. So we are seeking to add something to the Bill, otherwise it really is quite a pointless exercise. With Amendment 101 we are saying...

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (15 May 2018)

Lord Keen of Elie: ...believe, create more uncertainty and be less predictable than a regular fixed-date review. The introduction of a requirement for the panel to consider the need for a full review annually could further fuel such uncertainty. I appreciate the concerns raised by the noble Lord and others at Second Reading about the potential for a fixed review period to prompt undesirable litigation behaviour...

Written Answers — Treasury: Air Passenger Duty (15 May 2018)

Robert Jenrick: International treaties ensure that there is no taxation of international aviation fuel, and the Government does not levy VAT on flights. Air Passenger Duty (APD) ensures the aviation sector contributes its fair share to general taxation. The Government has not conducted an assessment of the effect of APD on tourism in England, Scotland and Wales. However, even at the current rates of APD,...

Community Transport — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (10 May 2018)

Patrick McLoughlin: ...of the Liberals, the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable)—he takes on board the very strong feelings, across parties, on this issue. I first tabled a private Member’s Bill to get bus-fuel duty rebate for community transport back in 1999, because before then the sector not getting the same kind of rebate as the commercial sector, and I thought that was unfair....

Scottish Parliament: Energy Efficient Scotland (10 May 2018)

Paul Wheelhouse: ...assisting social landlords in decarbonising their heating, the fund will encourage innovative thinking and fresh ideas. As of today, the fund is now open for expressions of interest. That underlines our commitment to tackling fuel poverty and improving energy efficiency for the wellbeing of the people of Scotland. The “Energy Efficient Scotland” route map also outlines the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (5th Day) (2 May 2018)

Lord Robathan: ...appalling environmental damage. People smuggle diesel because red diesel is very cheap, especially in the Republic, and it is brought up to the north, washed and sold at a cheap rate in Armagh. Smuggling of fuel continues to go on—the diesel has slightly changed—and there is smuggling of cattle. I read that 10,000 cattle in the last three years were stolen in the Republic,...

Economic and Fiscal Outlook (30 Apr 2018)

Elizabeth Truss: ...are less resilient to external shocks. We also know that we are spending a huge amount on debt interest. With the debt interest we spend—£50 billion a year—we could completely abolish council tax, business rates or fuel duty.

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Kate Hoey: ...positive that is said about what might be done. Proposals are talked down and talked down. People need to remember that there is already a legal border in Northern Ireland for excise, alcohol, tobacco, fuel duty, VAT, immigration, visas, vehicles, dangerous goods and security. Indeed, the primary function of the hard border of the past was to be a security border, not a customs border....

Dieter Helm Energy Review — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Alan Brown: ...variable tariffs. At least in terms of the tariff cap and overpriced SVTs, cross-party working and political pressure are bringing the energy companies to book at last. I welcome that. The hon. Gentleman talked about reducing fuel poverty. That is certainly important. I suggest that it is not just energy policy that leads to fuel poverty; austerity clearly feeds into it—if people do...

Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee (19 Apr 2018)

Clive Betts: with them to try to achieve that. Concerns were expressed that local authorities could not always cover the full cost of prosecutions, which might deter them from prosecuting some cases. The Minister said that local authorities’ duty was to prosecute regardless, but, being cash-strapped, they will often take the cost into account when they make decisions. We believe that courts...

Written Answers — Treasury: Electric Vehicles: Tax Allowances (18 Apr 2018)

Robert Jenrick: The government uses the tax system to encourage the purchase of cars with low carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) system works in a technology-neutral manner to encourage uptake of fuel efficient, low CO2 emitting models irrespective of whether they are fuelled by petrol, diesel or battery power. This means the very cleanest zero-emission cars – that also...

John Glen: ...for the poorest. We have increased the national living wage by 4.4%—to £7.83 an hour—and also the allowance that applies before people pay tax. We have made other changes, such as freezing fuel duty, to ensure we are doing all that we can for the hardest-working people in our communities.

Scottish Parliament: Earth Hour 2018 (28 Mar 2018)

Mr Mark Ruskell: ..., given the huge vested interests that were lining up against communities across Scotland? With the fracking ban, a line has been drawn in the sand, and it signals the prospect of an end to the fossil fuel age: something that might have seemed hopelessly idealistic just a decade ago. The actions of these citizens movements have delivered change across Europe, and we are now looking to...

Grenfell Update: The Economy (22 Mar 2018)

John Redwood: ..., I know the importance of reliability and relatively low price for running certain kinds of process industry. The United States are now reindustrialising because they will have access to a lot more cheap feedstock and fuel as a result of their drive to have much more domestic energy, at a time when we have been going in the other direction by becoming more reliant on other systems that...

Customs Clearance Arrangements at UK Ports - Statement (19 Mar 2018)

Lord Bates: ...friends to ensure that that border is as frictionless as possible so that this trade can take place. The noble Baroness referred to the situation in Northern Ireland. Of course, there is a difference in duty on certain goods between the two countries, as she alluded to, and they have introduced mechanisms for dealing with that. They have a variety of means of doing so, not just technology....

Economy: Spring Statement - Motion to Take Note (15 Mar 2018)

Lord Bates: .... As they have two years to spend their levy funds, businesses are taking their time to plan ahead and grow in a controlled way. On the overview, next month, working families will see another increase in their personal allowance, above inflation increases in the national minimum wage and the national living wage and a freeze on fuel duty, which we believe will feed through into some of the...

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

Alan Whitehead: give hon. Members an idea of what is happening in the market today. As we might expect, among the 60-plus companies making a tariff offer in the market, there is an upwards curve in basic tariffs. The annual cost of a dual fuel tariff ranges from about £800 to £1,200 for some of the green tariffs we discussed. If we look at those companies’ tariff ranges—I will not...

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

Claire Perry: The new clause seeks to add a clause to the Bill to create duties on Ofgem and the Secretary of State to consider the needs of customers in rural areas and to consider additional protections for them. The hon. Gentleman spoke about this on Second Reading, and many of us who represent very rural constituencies understand exactly what he is saying. I have been really pleased to learn that, in...
