Bill Presented — Constitutional Convention (No. 2) Bill: Finance Bill (21 Jul 2015)

Sammy Wilson: ...in respect of the Stormont House agreement, the prospect of devolving corporation tax, with the advantages that it might bring, is being pushed further and further down the line. I hope we will not find ourselves hitting even more problems. The other thing I wish to raise is the whole issue of taxes on energy. The reasoned amendment talks about the removal of the exemption from the climate...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Fisheries (21 Jul 2015)

George Eustice: ..., pet food, food additives, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and digestion. We are currently working with different parts of the fishing industry to ensure they can access these markets and to help them find practical solutions to the challenges of managing undersize catch onshore. Information on this will be issued to the industry in the autumn.

Bill Presented — National Insurance Contributions (Rate Ceilings) Bill: Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (14 Jul 2015)

Rachael Maskell: ...to clear up student debt, which is a scandal in itself, but one for a separate debate. When I looked at the productivity plan, I had to ask, “Where is the manufacturing strategy?” I could not find it and I did not hear it in the Budget—nothing on good-quality, highly skilled jobs. Where was the real opportunity to develop the housing infrastructure—and the construction jobs that...

Refugees and Migrants from Asia and Africa — Motion to Take Note (9 Jul 2015)

Lord Selsdon: ...territories in those golden years. I turn therefore to one of my favourite topics: Sudan. An old friend of mine, Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker, unwittingly bullied me into taking him to Sudan, only to find that I got fascinated by it. I had forgotten about the Gezira scheme, which grew the best long staple cotton in the world, which could still be redeveloped because the water and land are...

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — amendment of the law (8 Jul 2015)

Stewart Hosie: ...north of Scotland compared with the £5.20 KW subsidy in London. Such a move would at least have counteracted some of the damage done by the ludicrous decision in the last few weeks to remove the onshore wind subsidies. On tax evasion and avoidance, I welcome what the Chancellor said about finding £5 billion more and the action on offshore trusts, on removing some of the exemptions for...

Hatfield Colliery (2 Jul 2015)

Ed Miliband: ..., particularly the ethos at the Treasury, which has controlled so much of what the Government do—not just under this Government, but under previous Governments. If we look at the history, we find that until 2007 there was no Government Department that even had “energy” in the title—and there had not been since 1992. Why was that? It is because the prevailing assumption had been...

Bills Presented — Local Area Referendum (Disposal of School Playing Fields): Clause 16 — Tax on carriage of passengers by air (29 Jun 2015)

Stewart Hosie: ...that the Scottish Government’s policy of halving APD in the first instance would create new jobs, and that a failure to take action would cost Scotland tourists and tourism revenue. Its key findings included the fact that a 50% reduction would provide benefits to Scotland worth £200 million a year, meaning a £1 billion economic boost over the lifetime of a Parliament; and that a 50%...

Scottish Parliament: Onshore Wind Energy (23 Jun 2015)

Fergus Ewing: Yes I do. Not least is the obvious fact—at least to those of us who have spent hundreds of hours meeting the companies—that many of the companies that have onshore schemes that are being guillotined are also offshore wind developers. They have been planning to do the onshore projects prior to taking part in and delivering offshore projects. Now they may find themselves with little or...

Scottish Parliament: Kinghorn Lifeboat Station (50th Anniversary) (23 Jun 2015)

Roderick Campbell: ...force to be reckoned with, and anyone who does not take heed of that throws the dice every time they embark on its surface. It is in that inherently dangerous and changeable arena that crews often find themselves being called on to operate to save lives at sea. The most recent example of that for Kinghorn lifeboat station was a call that it received on Wednesday 17 June this year. The task...

Energy: Onshore Wind — Statement (22 Jun 2015)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: .... The repeated Statement does not include the text that the Secretary of State added at the Dispatch Box, in which he paid tribute to the Conservative MPs who have been the most vociferous about onshore wind—a part of the energy mix that receives less support than Hinkley Point but is part of an accelerating part of our whole renewable energy generation mix. The Government say that they...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Onshore Wind Subsidies (22 Jun 2015)

Chris Heaton-Harris: Obviously I welcome the statement and thank the Secretary of State for it, but does she recognise that the way in which onshore wind subsidies and developers have gone about their business has destroyed people’s faith in renewable energy as a whole? Indeed, in communities such as Winwick, Kelmarsh, Watford and Crick, which are in my constituency, one struggles to find people who support any...

Economy: Creative Industries — Motion to Take Note (18 Jun 2015)

Lord Berkeley of Knighton: .... In looking forwards, we look backwards and we educate. I congratulate the Government on honouring their manifesto pledge to empower local people and councils to have more say in the siting of onshore wind farms. This does indeed affect the economy and culture of areas such as mid-Wales, where national monuments such as Offa’s Dyke and Repton’s Stanage Park, which is grade-1 listed,...

Navitus Bay Wind Farm (15 Jun 2015)

Andrea Leadsom: ...in Paris with both ambition and pragmatism. I know that energy infrastructure projects of all sorts can have real impacts on local communities, but such projects can also bring real benefits. Finding the right balance between impacts and benefits is a key issue for the Department when it makes its decisions. As was pointed out by my hon. Friend the Member for Bournemouth West, I cannot...

Opposition Day — [1st allotted day]: Climate Change (10 Jun 2015)

David Davies: ...to roost, as they will create higher energy prices for businesses such as Celsa, which the hon. Gentleman has mentioned. It is absolutely outrageous that steel companies and other manufacturers are finding it difficult to manufacture in this country because they are paying so much more for electricity than their competitors in the rest of Europe. The reality, of course, is that it...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (4 Jun 2015)

Baroness Worthington: ...of seemingly interminable debate in this House and the other for many years. The energy Bill contains not much more than a dog-whistle response to a vocal minority who oppose proven, clean, cheap onshore wind, reducing investor confidence when we should be boosting it. That is coupled with another attempt to reassure investors in the North Sea, as if searching to return to the golden era...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (5th Day) (3 Jun 2015)

Lord Berkeley of Knighton: ..., and if a world-renowned organisation such as the CBSO is struggling, just imagine what is happening to chamber groups, small theatre companies and the like. Yet it is precisely here that we find the seed bed that feeds talent into our international successes, which bring a fortune into the Treasury, as we have heard. So we must fight for the arts at grass-roots level, but the primacy of...

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — North Wales Economic Infrastructure (25 Mar 2015)

David Hanson: ..., with both sites producing good-quality vehicles. Large businesses and the commuting population, as well as those engaged in tourism, depend on strong economic infrastructure. I think you will find, Sir Roger, that there will be a great deal of consensus across the House today on some of the key issues on which the next Government—whoever forms that Government—will need to focus in...

Scottish Parliament: Prime Minister (Meetings) (12 Mar 2015)

The First Minister: Perhaps more fundamentally, if Ruth Davidson had the honesty to complete the IFS’s sentence about tax rises or spending cuts, she would find that the last part said: “unless ... credible policies to boost the growth of Scotland’s onshore economies and revenues can be developed.” That is the whole point: we have a choice. We can accept never-ending Westminster cuts...

Scottish Parliament: Oil and Gas Sector (Support) (10 Mar 2015)

Lewis Macdonald: ...company in the north-east has laid off staff and contractors by the hundreds. Thousands of jobs—mostly onshore—have been lost. Where in the past it was easy to leave an employer on a Friday and find a new job on a Monday, the sector-wide downturn leaves people with far fewer options. The next big issue will be the terms and conditions of offshore workers. Many in the construction...

Wind Farm Subsidies (Abolition) Bill (6 Mar 2015)

Matthew Hancock: The commitment I gave is absolutely about onshore wind. I know that my hon. Friend has concerns about offshore wind, especially off Christchurch, and I understand that. We have had exchanges in this House and discussions about it. We are bearing down on the offshore wind subsidy, as the cost is reducing and industry is reducing its costs. There are links in respect of why we have chosen to...
