[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — Backbench Business — UK Steel Industry (21 Jan 2016)

Tom Blenkinsop: ...D that could be invested in them differ very much from the steel sites that already exist. If we are looking at the new future for a tube site, it is more than likely going to be non-conventional onshore or offshore gas. The industry —we will be talking about this next week in a separate debate—requires a different type of tube, which is non-welded. There are no non-welded tube sites...

Energy Bill [Lords] (18 Jan 2016)

Andrea Leadsom: Well, I don’t know where to start! I completely disagree with the hon. Lady. We are acting to control the costs of renewable energy by ending new subsidies for onshore wind and providing local people with the final say on new applications. Members who spoke about renewables included my right hon. Friend the Member for Hitchin and Harpenden (Mr Lilley), who gave us a spanking good speech on...

Opposition Day — [15th Allotted Day] — Trade, Exports, Innovation and Productivity (13 Jan 2016)

Sammy Wilson: ..., or that there is less of a distinction between service and manufacturing industries. Manufacturing is important. The Government, in their plan, accept that manufacturing is important. Yet we find that manufacturing output has actually fallen. Measured against the Government’s own criteria, this is another factor we cannot be complacent about. Finally, as has been well documented in...

Scottish Parliament: Social and Economic Success (13 Jan 2016)

Mike MacKenzie: ...have abruptly ended renewables incentives for almost all Scotland’s most promising technologies—wind, wave, tidal, hydro and solar—just at the point at which the pioneering technology of onshore wind was fast becoming our lowest-cost form of energy. I talk about the energy sector in particular, not just because we have a competitive advantage in those areas, not just because we are...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Climate Change and Flooding (15 Dec 2015)

Lisa Nandy: ...take this opportunity to ask the Secretary of State the following again. Will she take the chance presented by the Paris accord and stop the sell-off of the Green Investment Bank, and stop blocking onshore wind where there is strong local support for it? Will she take this chance to make real progress on the Swansea bay tidal lagoon, and will she find the money to fulfil the promise made...

Scotland Bill: Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (8 Dec 2015)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: ...Chamber here has asked the other Chamber—the House of Commons—the government majority in it and, thereby, the Government to think again on a number of things. We asked them to think again on onshore wind after they arbitrarily cut the grants a year early. We are currently looking at votes at 16 and 17 and asking them to think again—today they were doing that and thinking again about...

[Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] — backbench business — Fisheries Policy (3 Dec 2015)

Eilidh Whiteford: ...who crew our lifeboats in Fraserburgh, Peterhead and Macduff in my constituency. They are volunteers who risk their lives in all weathers to keep others safe. I thank many more besides, who work onshore for the wellbeing and welfare of our fishing communities. I take a keen interest in this debate every year, as an MP representing two of the three largest fishing ports in the...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (3 Dec 2015)

Claudia Beamish: ...on to one sheet of A4—that is the perfect size of briefing for MSPs with their busy lives. I also want to highlight some of the benefits that arise from the fishing industry and which create jobs onshore. I will begin with the medicinal properties of fish. The cod recovery plan has given those who know about sustainable fisheries more confidence to take cod liver oil, which helps the...

Bill Presented: Paris Climate Change Conference (19 Nov 2015)

Lisa Nandy: ...Organisation, found that rising temperatures constituted a threat to people’s wellbeing because of heatwaves, the spread of infectious diseases and crop failures. Launching the commission’s findings, Hugh Montgomery from University College London told reporters: “Climate change is a medical emergency. It demands an emergency response.” This is an issue of social justice. All of us...

Arctic Committee Report — Motion to Take Note (3 Nov 2015)

Lord Oxburgh: ...that humans pollute. They traffic across the Arctic and they throw away waste on a large scale, be it the abandonment of old nuclear submarines or icebreakers, the domestic waste associated with onshore activity, and broad commercial activity such as drilling for oil, mining and so on. In other words, humans introduce a significant and previously unexperienced perturbation to Arctic life....

Energy Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day) (21 Oct 2015)

Baroness Worthington: ..., and our conversation was welcome just so that this did not come completely out of the blue. I am reassured by his comments and I think that this is something we can work on together to try to find a solution. I am certain that the wording I came up with was not perfect. I would just say that state aid absolutely does require technology neutrality, and it is something that we need to...

Energy Bill [HL] — Report (1st Day) (Continued) (19 Oct 2015)

Baroness Worthington: ...the form of carbon capture, storage and utilisation, which obviously requires the fitting of equipment to capture the gases that are transported and potentially stored in areas of the North Sea, or onshore in saline aquafers and other locations. The move to deploy these projects has been very slow. It was way back in 2005, under a Labour Government, when we first said that we were going to...

Energy Bill [HL]: Report (1st Day) (19 Oct 2015)

Baroness Worthington: ...Carbon capture and storage is a grouping of technologies with different aspects, technologies and uses and different storage end points, some of which are stored underground, some of which might be onshore and some of which might be offshore in disused oilfields or, indeed, in oilfields that continue to be used through enhanced oil recovery. However, there may be other forms of storage,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Renewables Obligation Closure Order (Northern Ireland) 2015 (28 Sep 2015)

Basil McCrea: ...fact that they have no confidence in the Government's long-term renewable energy policy. Now, if that is happening in that project, it will happen in all projects. We talk about the exemption of onshore wind power in this order. I have sat in this Chamber and listened to Members saying time and time again that we have too many wind turbines. A Member of this Assembly, who is now in...

Scottish Parliament: Renewable Energy (17 Sep 2015)

Lewis Macdonald: ...energy and tackling climate change. Today, we have heard about some very different approaches to how all those things can be done at the same time and about the priorities that we should set. Onshore wind is today’s headline issue. Successive Scottish Governments have followed the lead given by Sarah Boyack as Minister for Transport and the Environment in the first session of Parliament...

Energy Bill [HL]: Committee (3rd Day) (14 Sep 2015)

Baroness Worthington: ...forward to getting clarity on this. It hinges on the word “new”. In fact, so much of the Bill hinges on the word “new”, because it was a manifesto commitment to have no new subsidies for onshore wind, which could have been interpreted in lots of different ways. I think there was a manifesto commitment that there will be no new targets. We need to start to understand how the...

Energy Bill [HL]: Committee (2nd Day) (9 Sep 2015)

Baroness Worthington: ...to do. So, in the run-up to Paris, here we are with an Energy Bill that seeks, on the surface of it, to extract more hydrocarbons from the North Sea—and, as a side issue, to not have any more onshore wind. That does not seem completely in tune with the general sense outside these Chambers, government and Whitehall that we need to take climate change seriously. What we are trying to do in...

Bill Presented — Devolution (London) Bill: Clause 45 — CCL: removal of exemption for electricity from renewable sources (8 Sep 2015)

Andrew Percy: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Wirral South (Alison McGovern), and I agreed with much of what she said. I find myself, not for the first time, standing to criticise a Government of my own party, but they should pay heed when Members such as my hon. Friend the Member for Selby and Ainsty (Nigel Adams) make such speeches. When my hon. Friend and neighbour makes such a speech,...

Energy Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (7 Sep 2015)

Baroness Maddock: My Lords, we on these Benches very much share the concerns voiced in all parts of the House today about this Bill. It may have two main parts—on the oil and gas industry, and onshore wind—but I agree with the noble Lord, Lord Oxburgh, that we have been asked to deal with it in a very unsatisfactory way. We had Second Reading on the last day of Parliament before the summer recess, and here...

Energy Bill [HL] — Second Reading (22 Jul 2015)

Baroness Worthington: ...meagre two clauses that seem to be designed to destabilise the wind industry. Many noble Lords have spoken very eloquently about the first part of the Bill. It is indeed necessary to implement the findings of the Wood review. However, the timing of the review was rather unfortunate, being published in February 2014—mere months before we saw a radical resetting of the global oil price....
