Scottish Parliament: Ferries (23 Mar 2022)

Ariane Burgess: I find it disappointing that the member wants to turn the debate into a point-scoring blame game. Our communities need us to work constructively to provide the best lifeline services we can. That is the Greens’ approach. Retrofitting an electric motor to a diesel ferry is a win-win, as it cuts pollution, emissions, noise and running costs. On a recent trip to Orkney, I was pleased to see...

Onshore Wind Bill [HL] - Third Reading: Motion (18 Mar 2022)

Lord Lilley: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness on her Bill, which I fully support. I have long opposed subsidies for wind, but I am not opposed to wind. As far as onshore wind is concerned, beauty lies in the eye of the beholder and I find windmills quite attractive—although this was not a view universally shared by my constituents. In the current circumstances we must support the cheapest,...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Renewable Energy: Finance (14 Mar 2022)

Virginia Crosbie: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what assessment he has made of the potential merits of further increasing investment in (a) onshore wind, (b) solar, (c) tidal and (d) other renewable energy sources such in order to further diversify energy generation in the UK; what steps he is taking to support the development of energy storage facilities; and what...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Onshore Fracking (Prohibition) Bill: Second Stage (8 Feb 2022)

Gordon Lyons: ...opportunity to respond to the debate on the private Member's Bill. I value the interest shown by the House in this important and current issue. I note with interest the Member's desire to prohibit onshore hydraulic fracturing. However, that is only one element of the much broader and more complex policy area of petroleum licensing. As Members debate the Bill today, I ask that they reflect...

Oil and Gas Producers: Windfall Tax (1 Feb 2022)

Wera Hobhouse: ...companies will foot the extra bill for gas, although they do not use any gas at all—I made that point in another debate, as the Minister knows. Ideally, all power should come from renewables: onshore and offshore wind, solar and marine. There are few countries as well situated as the UK for wind and marine. Not only should we be generating all our power renewably but we should be...

Cost of Living — [Judith Cummins in the Chair] (25 Jan 2022)

Deidre Brock: ...against rising energy prices. As is so often the case under the Government, it is those with the least who will suffer the most from the price cap increase. The Joseph Rowntree Foundation finds that households on low incomes will spend a staggering average 18% of their income, after housing costs, on their energy bills from April. For single adult households on low incomes that rises to an...

Backbench Business - Financial Services: UK EconomyBackbench Business (9 Dec 2021)

Angela Eagle: ...of the agreements that we came to and the influence we were able to have when we were inside the Council chambers, the European Parliament and the European Commission, rather than the situation we find ourselves in now. As the hon. Member for South Cambridgeshire said, that can be an advantage, but it can also be a disadvantage. It is an opportunity, but there are also threats and issues...

Community Energy Schemes — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (30 Nov 2021)

Hilary Benn: ...learn about the Local Electricity Bill. I congratulate the hon. Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse) once again on securing the debate, and thank all the Members who have supported it. To be honest, I find it a bit frustrating that people who want to do things that will contribute to helping to address the great challenge that we face, which is to change the way in which we produce and consume...

Onshore Wind Bill [HL] - Second Reading (19 Nov 2021)

Lord Oates: ...it is felt across the House that this is a major shot in the foot that the Conservative Government of 2015 put in place. As the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman, said, this Bill is about attempting to find a more balanced approach. The Government’s current approach is totally unbalanced. As we have also heard, onshore wind is critical to the decarbonisation of our economy. As the noble...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations 2021 (10 Nov 2021)

Mairi Gougeon: ...and consult on our future catching policy early next year, when all such matters will be discussed. We want to bring people together to ensure that a range of voices are heard as we collaborate on finding solutions. The Government will continue to engage with stakeholders at every level to achieve that. That approach is epitomised in the recent work of the nephrops working group, which...

Geothermal Energy — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (15 Sep 2021)

Owen Thompson: ...those vast resources has often been overlooked in favour of other forms of renewables that are more readily captured on top of the ground. We have come a long way since first using sources such as onshore or offshore wind, tidal and solar energy to decarbonise our electricity supplies, and Scotland now produces about 97.4% of its electricity consumption from renewables. There is a still a...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2021-22 (7 Sep 2021)

Jenni Minto: ...for renewable energy. For it to work for everyone, we need to ensure that communities are properly informed and consulted by power providers about changes to hardware in their area in order to find the best solutions. I look forward to the consultation on a new onshore wind policy statement. Argyll and Bute holds another very important natural asset in combating climate change: the carbon...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Government Agreement with Scottish Green Party (31 Aug 2021)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...box, is the essence of democracy. However, we also have a duty to reach beyond our disagreements and, in the interests of progress, maximise the consensus between us. That is essential if we are to find the solutions that are needed to solve the big problems confronting Scotland and the world. In my view and experience, instead of division and acrimony, people want to see much more...

Merchant Shipping (Cargo Ship) (Bilge Alarm) Regulations 2021 - Motion to Regret (13 Jul 2021)

Lord Berkeley: ...port of Fowey just because stopcocks were not closed properly, which is not a good thing to happen. Why do people sleep on ships? Apart from the safety reasons, and saving money on accommodation onshore, it is also often because they are in tidal work. They cannot go ashore that easily and it is perfectly reasonable for this to happen. The MAIB report was quite clear that it thought the...

UK’s Financial Services Industry (21 Jun 2021)

Bim Afolami: ...financial centre. In Asia, financial hubs are catching up with us fast, whether it be Hong Kong, Singapore or other cities. The ambitions of our European friends and neighbours to create onshore financial centres within the European Union bloc at the expense of London—let us not kid ourselves about that—is becoming increasingly apparent. If we are to continue to reap the benefits from...

Government Contracts: Covid-19 — [Yvonne Fovargue in the Chair] (21 Jun 2021)

Julia Lopez: I appreciate the hon. Gentleman’s concern about perception, but it should actually be about fact. I am happy to address any concerns that he has. I find it extremely challenging to have people raising questions about my integrity in this space, when I do not feel that I have done anything improper. I am happy to get back to him on any questions that he might have, which I have also tried to...

Kenly Wind Farm (15 Jun 2021)

Jeremy Quin: ...to help air traffic, its passengers and crew to land safely. Many wind farms have been able to proceed, after consideration, without issue; however, we have also been keen to support the sector to find solutions that can enable further projects to go ahead. The Royal Air Force, in partnership with the Offshore Wind Industry Council, has formed a joint taskforce to develop radar...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Green New Deal (24 May 2021)

Harry Harvey: ...to provide the tools and support needed to assist them to develop green and sustainable practices for the future. There is a need to take on board independent expert advice, including the clear findings of the Climate Change Committee in relation to net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and the impact on the agri-food sector in Northern Ireland in particular. I fully support the need to ensure...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Green New Deal (24 May 2021)

Gary Middleton: ...just, and that it does not place a disproportionate burden on certain industries, particularly our agri-food sector. There is a need to take on board independent, expert advice, including the clear finding by the Climate Change Committee that even the reduction of meat and dairy production to 50% and the increase of tree planting would not be enough to allow us to reach net zero carbon...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (12 May 2021)

Baroness Buscombe: ..., there is growing public concern that the excessive costs of new green targets will further increase the UK’s balance of payments deficit. That concern could be partially met if we bring onshore and build our own green industries and the related supply infrastructure and skills for the longer term. Despite the UK having the most favourable conditions for wind-powered generation in...
