Scottish Parliament: Economic Transformation (21 Sep 2022)

Ivan McKee: ...we asked the UK Government to do. It has been very late to the table on that, waiting for the change of Government for many, many weeks. That has been disappointing. Daniel Johnson struggled to find something sensible to say; he was all over the place, which was disappointing because he is usually much more focused and coherent in his interventions. He did not recognise the fact that the...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2022-23 (6 Sep 2022)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...profits tax, for example by broadening the energy profits levy and removing the investment allowance. The Scottish Government will continue to do all that we can to help. We will always try to find money for things that matter. However, under the current devolved settlement, our budget is essentially fixed, and it is under severe and increasing pressure. I have a duty to be frank about the...

New Pylons: East Anglia — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (19 Jul 2022)

Bernard Jenkin: ...the proposals. In a new regime, the effect on property prices, the loss of agricultural land and other non-monetised costs of the proposal need to be reflected in the costs; I think we would then find that the offshore transmission system would provide better value for money, and for the environment and communities. If it was worked out properly, an offshore ring main around the east of...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Boris Johnson: ...again with tens of gigawatts of clean green energy. We will have 50 GW of offshore wind by 2050, and thanks to this Government’s activism I am proud to say that offshore wind is now cheaper than onshore wind. I looked down at that ghostly white forest of windmills in the sea, financed with ever growing sums from international investors, and I thought, “This is how we will fix our...

Energy (Oil and Gas) Profits Levy Bill: Clause 1 - Charge to tax (11 Jul 2022)

James Murray: ...candidates may like to support our plan for an immediate, fully funded tax cut to help people with the cost of living and tackle inflation. Later this evening, when we vote on new clause 3, we will find out what judgment they have made. We would also like to know what judgment those people have made about the Government’s decision to undermine the levy by shamefully giving a third or...

Economic Crime: Law Enforcement (7 Jul 2022)

Liam Byrne: ..., and it is also why we have to reform the suspicious activity reporting regime. Not only does the regime need widening so that it bites on more organisations such as estate agents but we have to find a way of pooling the intelligence that comes from suspicious activity reports and focusing on where we think the harm is greatest. Our Committee has heard that loud and clear, not least in...

Action on Climate Change and Decarbonisation (5 Jul 2022)

Jamie Stone: ..., perhaps in England somewhere, the nearby households that might be affected would be given a grant of £350 per household. In my constituency in the highlands, we already have a large number of onshore wind farms, so my first plea, which is a pretty obvious one, is that if the Government ever did consider some sort of grant like that, it should also be afforded retrospectively to homes in...

Energy Security Strategy — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (5 Jul 2022)

David Johnston: ...to support them. We have been world-leading in eliminating coal. I very much welcome the Government’s ambition to have 25% of our electricity capacity come from offshore wind and to trial onshore wind as long as there is local support for it. I look forward to seeing how much local support there is, given how many complaints I get about other planning issues. If the support is there, it...

UK Infrastructure Bank Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 1 (4 Jul 2022)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: ...by it. I am very happy if the Government want to look at using different terminology, but I point out that what I mean by “roads” is major stretches of roadway. I do not mean tracks up to new onshore windfarms, government enthusiasm for which we are finally seeing signs of in the media, which is greatly encouraging. If the Government wish to find another form of wording, I point out...

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

Baroness Blake of Leeds: ...short on where actions will be taken. In addition, plans made at COP 26 last November in my view fell short of what was needed, in spite of the modest progress. So when we look at the report’s findings, which I will turn to shortly, there is little if anything that no longer applies, and ensuring that our efforts towards net zero are on course is only more urgent given recent...

Future Hydrogen Economy (14 Jun 2022)

Chris Matheson: ...debate. I urged him not to make it into a beauty contest, but to spread the investment around. To be fair to the Government, they have done that, and I welcome the support that they have given. I find the debate on hydrogen somewhat depressing. Many people in what we might term the green lobby, with whom I share a lot of aims and values, look on the hydrogen project in my area with disdain...

Inshore Fishing Fleet — [Sir Charles Walker in the Chair] (14 Jun 2022)

Daniel Zeichner: ...I appreciate the need for data, but the way in which it is being introduced—adding extra cost for people working on fine margins, having time limits on possible financial support, and then people finding that some of the recommended systems are being withdrawn because of the type approval process—has just added to the stress people are feeling. The stresses and concerns around very...

Ofwat: Strategic Priorities (9 Jun 2022)

Luke Pollard: ..., which affects people who move between different water companies. We must also ensure that water poverty is properly understood as a key part of the cost of living crisis. Far too frequently, I find that this type of poverty, which belongs to DEFRA, is separated in Government thinking and leadership from those types that belong to the Department for Work and Pensions or the Department for...

Tackling Short-term and Long-term Cost of Living Increases (17 May 2022)

Kenny MacAskill: ..., are now worth a fortune and the UK sees them being exploited for decades to come. However, it extends beyond that, because we have renewables: we have not simply been blessed with hydro and with onshore wind, but we now have offshore wind coming—we are the Saudi Arabia of wind, with 25% of Europe’s resource being in Scotland. Where are the benefits to our community? Where is our...

Scottish Parliament: Carbon Neutral Islands (17 May 2022)

Rhoda Grant: ...technologies come to market and we must ensure that, when they do, we have the skills to keep the manufacturing and production jobs in Scotland. That is something that we have failed to do with onshore and offshore wind. We in the Scottish Labour Party are not against the Government’s new initiative, but we are concerned that it might lack ambition. One need only look at the island of...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (16 May 2022)

Lord McNicol of West Kilbride: ...The Bank of England has warned that, for many years, the cost of living crisis will feel more like a recession. While the Government like to talk of record numbers of vacancies, many businesses are finding that they are simply unable to recruit the staff that they need, holding back their potential and that of the wider economy. Rather than presenting a coherent set of measures to tackle...

Debate on the Address: [1st day] (10 May 2022)

John Redwood: .... I will not go into the details of the techniques needed for reservoir management, because that obviously depends on the structure, the flow rates and the nature of the stratum in which you find the gas, but a range of techniques can be used if gas or oil is shy in coming out of a reservoir that has been developed over many years. Of course, like the right hon. Gentleman, I want this to...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (1st Day): Motion for an Humble Address (10 May 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...today, the somewhat cynical words of Ernest Benn, who I understand is the great-uncle of my noble friend Lord Stansgate, came to mind. He said: “Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.” Will this Queen’s Speech be remembered as a programme for a Government who seek to address the major...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Wind Power: Seas and Oceans (6 Apr 2022)

Greg Hands: ...BEIS-led Offshore Transmission Network Review, National Grid Electricity System Operator will shortly publish a Holistic Network Design (HND) which brings together the coordinated planning of wider onshore network reinforcements and the connections for around 23GW of offshore wind, including over 3GW of floating wind. The objective of the OTNR is to ensure that the transmission...

Elections Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 197 (28 Mar 2022)

Lord Stunell: ...be something which the public would be suspicious about, even if we are far too knowing to believe that a party might be influenced by that. What about the difficulty in bringing offshore banking onshore? Could that have anything to do with where donors are starting from and where they are banking? What about getting a beneficial ownership register of all companies and making Companies...
