Office for Budget Responsibility — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Jul 2018)

Kirsty Blackman: ...talked about. The Scottish Fiscal Commission is structurally and operationally independent of the Scottish Government, and it produces robust forecasts about devolved revenues, spending and onshore GDP. The interesting thing about it is that because it was formed fairly recently, we can talk about how it was formed and the decisions that were made about it. When the Scottish Government...

Construction Industry Training Board HQ (17 Jul 2018)

Henry Bellingham: ...with the industry and get its support. Obviously, the consensus process takes place regularly, and in 2017 consensus had to be built with the industry at a time when many smaller firms were finding the levy onerous, and a number of larger construction and civil engineering businesses were making it very clear that they wanted CITB to change. They all took the view—and I think the...

Non-EEA Visas: Inshore Fishing — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Douglas Ross: ...a new solution or to consider the points of that committee, because it will surely come up with the same answers we have. This is an immediate problem, so we do not need to wait until September to find out what will happen and whether it will get worse. This problem exists now, and it also has a solution now. We do not need to wait for that committee to tell us the answer, because it is...

Scottish Parliament: Onshore Wind Energy (Community Benefit) (7 Jun 2018)

Richard Lochhead: ...announced that 2017 had been a record year for renewable electricity and that 68.1 per cent of gross electricity consumption had been met by renewables. As the most commercially viable technology, onshore wind has led the way and now employs 8,000 people in Scotland. As a result, many communities have found themselves being neighbours to wind farms, which are sometimes controversial but...

Bat Habitats Regulation Bill [HL] - Second Reading (27 Apr 2018)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: ..., which can be varied and address the complex problems. As of today, it is difficult to judge what the costs of each solution would be, but I think that the best opportunity we have is now, to find those solutions. As the noble Lord, Lord Berkeley, said, we need to find solutions that have the flexibility to have the prospect of continued and unhindered use of churches, at the same time...

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

Alan Brown: ...that Dieter Helm obviously agrees that the cost of energy is too high “to meet the government’s objectives and, in particular, to be consistent with the Climate Change Act”. Another key finding was that “energy policy, regulation and market design are not fit for the purposes of the emerging low-carbon energy market, as it undergoes profound technical change.” Those aspects of...

Backbench Business: UK Oil and Gas Industry — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (19 Apr 2018)

Peter Aldous: ...The southern North sea is at a critical juncture. For more than 50 years, the basin has developed and delivered strong gas production through a diverse network of offshore platforms, pipelines and onshore terminals. The basin has been well exploited, and the opportunity to identify and develop large, landmark discoveries is increasingly limited. There is potential with both marginal pools...

Public Bill Committee: Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Disclosure of information to the Commissioner (20 Mar 2018)

Liam Byrne: ...unable to check on allegations because they did not know what records to go and check. A company that makes a profit of $4 billion every single quarter has said to the House that it was unable to find the resources to investigate the kind of misdemeanours that have now been laid at their door and that of Cambridge Analytica. I am concerned that the way our regulators operate together is...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day) (17 Jan 2018)

Lord Naseby: ...—my words, not hers. I did a bit of research and asked the Cayman Islands for information on the type of operations conducted there. I give a case history that I think your Lordships will find interesting. Money does not stay in the Cayman Islands but flows through them to support growth in onshore jurisdictions, including in developing countries. An example of this is the World Bank’s...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (12 Dec 2017)

Alan Brown: Onshore wind has been Scotland’s success story, with the Scottish Government still on track to meet 100% of electricity generation coming from renewables. The UK Government are the possible blocker. As we approach the point of zero-subsidy onshore developments, will the Government find a way to allow Scottish onshore developments to bid in the next CfD auction?

Scottish Parliament: Sea Fisheries and End-year Negotiations (7 Dec 2017)

Rhoda Grant: ...of allowing a boat enough profit to land the bycatch but not enough to make the catch attractive to target. That way, it will not be wasted. We must also invest more in science and technology to find ways of fishing more selectively in mixed fisheries, which will allow effort to be much more targeted. Technology is advancing to enable gear to fish more selectively, but it needs much more...

Scottish Parliament: Unconventional Oil and Gas (24 Oct 2017)

Paul Wheelhouse: ...an independent expert scientific panel to examine the evidence on unconventional oil and gas, including hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, and coal bed methane extraction. The panel reported its findings in July 2014. After carefully considering those findings, we introduced a moratorium on onshore unconventional oil and gas in January 2015. That created space to explore the specific...

Backbench Business: Carbon Capture and Storage — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (19 Oct 2017)

Alan Brown: ...could not apportion risk between themselves properly and could not provide a compliant bid. In the Peterhead project, Shell was able to manage the risk. The Government need to review that and find out why Shell said it could manage the risk and provide a compliant bid. That has important implications going forward. The National Audit Office report compiled after that decision confirmed...

Retail Energy (12 Oct 2017)

Alan Brown: .... We need to make sure, however, that there is not too much equalisation or coalescing of pricing around the cap and that customer service is not affected as a consequence of companies trying to find other ways to save money. As the Secretary of State rightly said, standard variable tariffs themselves are a problem. How will the Government guarantee that people are moved off them once and...

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Mel Stride: ...easy argument to prosecute that we are somehow beating up those who are losing their jobs, the reality is that that situation is being used as a vehicle for tax avoidance, and when the Government find tax avoidance, we will clamp down on it. Let me now deal with the points raised by the hon. Member for Bootle about the Government’s record on tax avoidance and evasion, and the work of...

Renewable Energy Generation: Island Communities — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (4 Jul 2017)

Alistair Carmichael: ...which concluded some time around the end of 2015. In the meantime, we had a general election, and the Conservative Government that came in in 2015 had a manifesto commitment to have a moratorium on onshore wind developments. The point at which the Government decided to go ahead with the CfD auction round that we are currently part of, without any provision for the islands, sticks in my...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (26 Jun 2017)

the Bishop of Durham: ...-east. We are a region that, despite uncertainties and higher levels of unemployment, is in many ways thriving and has plenty of untapped potential. Take our science and technology sector. The ONS finds that our life sciences and healthcare sector is the largest in England in population terms. Overall, this sector has 221,300 people working for more than 14,000 others. That puts us behind...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Economy (19 Apr 2017)

Richard Leonard: ...through a period of rising inflation and a falling—sometimes oscillating—pound. Scottish manufacturing output has, over the past two years, crashed by 10 per cent to a 9 per cent share of onshore GDP. As a result we have, according to the Scottish Government’s own figures, trade deficits of £5.1 billion with the rest of the UK and £4.8 billion with the rest of the world. Other...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (18 Apr 2017)

Kirsty Blackman: ...we do not yet have the statistics for how the numbers will look. The hon. Member for North West Hampshire (Kit Malthouse) talked about the gig economy, and I get that the Government need to find a different way to tax it due to the avoidance of normal tax routes. However, we need to find a different way to ensure that young people who find themselves working in the gig economy have a...

Shale Gas - Question for Short Debate (7 Mar 2017)

Lord Prior of Brampton: ..., for tabling the debate this evening. It has been a really well-informed debate, even if the noble Lord did not necessarily receive the support he was hoping for. It was so well informed that I find that everything that I was going to say in my speech has already been said by noble Lords, so I will just run through the main issues that have been raised. First, I do not think I agreed with...
