Energy Bill [Lords]: Onshore Wind Generating Stations in England and Wales (9 May 2016)

Alan Whitehead: ...friend. The Minister is quoting a manifesto commitment that was not actually in the Conservative party 2015 general election manifesto. The manifesto commitment was for no new subsidies for onshore wind. The Bill puts that in place, but provides for a number of grace periods for the consequence of that process. What we are therefore talking about in this debate is not that commitment but...

Polytechnics - Question for Short Debate (5 May 2016)

Lord Lucas: ..., I do not particularly understand—but at least we have nuclear, which is very much a technology of the future. To come, we have advanced manufacturing, wind energy, the creative industries, onshore oil and digital. Those sorts of centres of expertise would fit extremely well within a network of polytechnics because the polytechnics would already have, because they would need it,...

Coal-fired Power Stations — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (27 Apr 2016)

Phil Boswell: ..., the cut to the industrial solar subsidy, cuts to solar subsidy for homes, cuts to biomass subsidy, scrapping the green deal, cutting zero-carbon homes, imposing carbon tax on renewables, blocking onshore wind, increased tax on small cars, tax breaks for the oil and gas industries, cutting zero-carbon offices and support for community energy, and selling the Green Investment Bank, to name...

Energy Bill [HL] - Commons Reason (26 Apr 2016)

Lord Grantchester: ...embodies the principle of giving local people the final say. To deny these cases where written consent was made after 18 June 2015 is to deny and prevent local people having the final say on onshore wind applications due to a pedantic technicality, as the final say had effectively been made prior to that date. The projects have, arguably, a stronger case than those originally refused...

Energy Bill [Lords]: Onshore wind power: circumstances in which certificates may be issued after 31 March 2016 (20 Apr 2016)

Andrea Leadsom: ...of the UK’s remaining oil and gas reserves. Industry and Government share the same ambitions and are working very closely together to manage the remaining resources effectively and efficiently. I find it very disappointing that Opposition Members, who should know better, have suggested that by adding a mere £10 million extra per year to consumer bills, we can somehow achieve our aim of...

Energy Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments (12 Apr 2016)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: ...want to speak principally to my amendments to Amendment 7. My noble friend Lady Featherstone may say something about the wider issue of the early closure of the renewables obligation in respect of onshore wind generating stations. The Minister has repeated the Conservative Party manifesto commitment that there will be no new subsidies for onshore wind, but I well recall the comment from...

Renewables Obligation Closure Etc. (Amendment) Order 2016 - Motion to Approve (16 Mar 2016)

Baroness Featherstone: ...s Question Time today claim that 99% of solar on roofs came under a Tory-led Government. That sticks a little bit in the craw. Since the end of the coalition, this Government are ending support for onshore wind power; sharply reducing support for other renewable technologies, including solar PV and anaerobic digestion; ending renewable energy’s exemption from the climate change levy;...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (16 Mar 2016)

John Redwood: ...? I am pleased that the Budget is starting to tackle the issue of the oil industry offshore through tax changes. We need to do other work on that, and we also need to get on with gas extraction onshore. We will probably find further oil resources when we are prospecting for shale gas in the shale sands. We need to start bridging the gap on energy before it becomes even more damaging to our...

Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 2 — Transfer of functions to the OGA (14 Mar 2016)

John Redwood: ...general network on the continent, which is clearly weakened by the necessity to have Russian supplies in the eastern part of the system. The UK, as an island nation, with access to such riches both onshore and offshore, and with the ability to generate more genuine renewables that are continuously available, should be able to have a secure supply and sufficient capacity in reserve when...

Energy Bill [Lords]: New Clause 2 — Onshore wind power: renewables obligation (14 Mar 2016)

Andrea Leadsom: ...South Cambridgeshire (Heidi Allen), and my right hon. Friend the Member for Haltemprice and Howden (Mr Davis) for raising with me the important issues around visual, amenity and noise impacts from onshore wind farms and the impact that they can have at local level. I can confirm that our manifesto commitment specifically called for a halt to the spread of onshore wind farms and a change...

[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Offshore Oil and Gas Industry (3 Mar 2016)

Andrea Leadsom: ...to late-life activity; that we abolish the supplementary charge, or at least reduce it by 10%; that we bring the rate of the investment allowance for offshore expenditure in line with that for onshore expenditure; that we temporarily remove all special taxes from exploration so that only basic corporation tax will apply for all discoveries made over the next five years for the whole life...

Scotland Bill - Report (2nd Day) (29 Feb 2016)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: ..., it would have been the responsibility of the local authority. If the local authority had refused it in England and Ministers had called it in, the grace period that the Government proposed for onshore wind farm consents would have kicked in. However, that does not cover the situation in Scotland given that it is already subject to ministerial fiat there, so there is a mismatch in...

Public Bill Committee: Enterprise Bill [Lords]: Clause 30 - Disposal of Crown’s shares in UK Green Investment Bank company (23 Feb 2016)

Caroline Flint: I thank my hon. Friend for her intervention. Having spent the past five years as a shadow Energy and Climate Change Minister, I find it most encouraging that, when we look at the investment going into these projects we can see that, despite the recession and the economic problems we have had for a number of years, green energy is one of the few sectors that has bucked the trend. More...

Public Bill Committee: Enterprise Bill [Lords]: Disposal of Crown’s shares in UK Green Investment Bank company (23 Feb 2016)

...cannot quite remember whether you voted against it or not. Anyway, although there have been a number of wobbles in the past five years on a number of different aspects of green technology such as onshore wind farms and what have you, this country is lucky, compared to other countries, that there is political consensus on this important issue. This is about saving the planet, but I am a...

Humber Energy Estuary (9 Feb 2016)

Martin Vickers: ...contracts for difference that were agreed before the recent changes. It is fair to say that many people have been sceptical about the benefits of wind power—that comes, in part, from opponents of onshore wind turbines—and my constituents are no different: the majority of them oppose onshore wind turbines. They have a positive view of the offshore sector, however, partly because of the...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 83 - Commencement (2 Feb 2016)

Andrea Leadsom: ...—no ifs, no buts. I also congratulate my hon. Friend on his excellent work on amplitude modulation. He came and talked to me about it with a number of experts. We are determined to address and find a solution to the problem. He reminds me frequently that I need to come back to him with an answer, but the Department is taking independent advice on the matter. We hope to make some progress...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 80 - Emissions trading: United Kingdom carbon account (2 Feb 2016)

Clive Lewis: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. On divestment, I think he will find that even the Governor of the Bank of England, Mark Carney, has advised businesses to look at where their investments are made on that particular issue. On the point that the hon. Gentleman made, the fifth carbon budget is not until 2028—we are not talking about immediate carbon budgets coming up, but...

[Mr George Howarth in the Chair] — Onshore Oil and Gas (26 Jan 2016)

Kirsty Blackman: ...and the benefits in that respect. I represent Aberdeen, where we have been feeling the effects of the oil crash for much longer than a few weeks or months. For the past year, contractors have been finding it very difficult to get jobs and redundancies have been being made. In terms of the supply chain and supporting jobs in the UK, particularly in manufacturing around the supply chain,...
