Canlyniadau 1–20 o 7928 ar gyfer speaker:Eric Forth

Foreign Nationals (Deportation and Removal) (26 Ebr 2006)

Eric Forth: How many of those criminals had a previous criminal record, either here or in their own country?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (22 Maw 2006)

Eric Forth: What about unemployment?

Party Political Funding (20 Maw 2006)

Eric Forth: Why did the Minister decide to make her statement today?

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill: Clause 26 — Short Title and Extent (17 Maw 2006)

Eric Forth: This is the bit we have all been looking forward to, because I hope that with your permission, Mr. Deputy Speaker, we shall be able to range much more widely than when we were constrained by amendments and new clauses. My remarks, sadly, probably will not be able to be concluded by 2.30, but I am sure that we can look forward to another full day of debate on Third Reading, to do the Bill...

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill: Clause 26 — Short Title and Extent (17 Maw 2006)

Eric Forth: I am grateful to my hon. Friend, and later in my remarks I shall quote further from the Prime Minister on exactly that point. The Prime Minister spoke words of very great wisdom. He has a clear view of the realities of climate change, emissions and the like and I am sure that we shall want to explore that, too. One of the things on which we may want to spend some time, and which has been...

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill: Clause 26 — Short Title and Extent (17 Maw 2006)

Eric Forth: I look forward to hearing the hon. Gentleman seeking to contribute to the Third Reading debate and telling us a lot more about the Scottish islands—a subject that does not arise very often in the House. Perhaps he could discuss hydroelectricity and give us some inspiration about the contribution it could make to reducing emissions— It being half-past Two o'clock, the debate stood...

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill: Clause 16 — Promotion of Community Energy Schemes (17 Maw 2006)

Eric Forth: It is the second time that the hon. Gentleman has mentioned the code of practice. Does he have any more faith in that code of practice than in the ministerial code, which has been the subject of so much recent discussion?

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill: Clause 16 — Promotion of Community Energy Schemes (17 Maw 2006)

Eric Forth: My hon. Friend has parishes in his constituency, but I do not, because my constituency is in a London borough. Can he give me some idea of the staffing and resources that a typical parish council might have? What is his judgment on whether they could begin to fulfil the aspirations set out in this clause?

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill: Clause 16 — Promotion of Community Energy Schemes (17 Maw 2006)

Eric Forth: Does that not mean that there is a risk that the alleged benefits of microgeneration will be unevenly spread? If some enthusiastic parish councils promote them as the clause suggests, but others do not have the resources to do so, someone somewhere will miss out.

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill: Clause 16 — Promotion of Community Energy Schemes (17 Maw 2006)

Eric Forth: I assure my hon. Friend that I will not be browbeaten by eco-nuts, eco-fascists or any other odd people. I am always prepared to engage in serious debate and scrutiny of Bills, be they well-intentioned or otherwise. I congratulate the hon. Member for Edinburgh, North and Leith on steering his Bill to this stage in its development. With a bit of luck, we might just be able to get started on...

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill: Clause 16 — Promotion of Community Energy Schemes (17 Maw 2006)

Eric Forth: I am grateful to the promoter of the Bill for that explanation. Nevertheless, I think that he would concede that we are talking about potentially quite large generating plants of a capacity that would provide power for a community, however defined. My hon. Friend the Member for Kettering gave us one definition. The 20MW figure mentioned in the clause suggests potentially 2,000 households or...

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill: Clause 16 — Promotion of Community Energy Schemes (17 Maw 2006)

Eric Forth: Once again, I am grateful. I do not know whether that reassures my hon. Friend the Member for Kettering, but it moves us forward. That is helpful.

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill: Clause 16 — Promotion of Community Energy Schemes (17 Maw 2006)

Eric Forth: My hon. Friend spells out the reality of the parliamentary process. With the best will in the world, let us assume that the Bill receives its Third Reading in June, which seems the most likely outcome now. It must, quite properly, still go to the House of Lords and undergo scrutiny there. We are talking about Queen's consent to such a Bill towards the end of this year. Even if it were to be...

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill: Clause 16 — Promotion of Community Energy Schemes (17 Maw 2006)

Eric Forth: The answer to my hon. Friend is probably a moral duty.

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill: Clause 16 — Promotion of Community Energy Schemes (17 Maw 2006)

Eric Forth: I am sure that we do, perhaps more frequently than I would like. By the very writing of such a clause, we are inviting parish councils to give greater priority to this sort of activity than they might do to other activities. My worry is that given that parishes are, by definition, modest organisations with modest resources, as soon as we start telling them in the law of the land that we would...

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill: Clause 16 — Promotion of Community Energy Schemes (17 Maw 2006)

Eric Forth: Of course, but the worry is that Government amendment No. 49 seeks to leave out subsections (3) and (4), although we will not know the reasons why until the Minister gets to his feet. I think that what is proposed is a worrying development that exemplifies a degree of over-enthusiasm by people who are keen on the Bill. Courtesy of a Government new clause that we debated last Friday, we have...

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill: Clause 16 — Promotion of Community Energy Schemes (17 Maw 2006)

Eric Forth: No doubt the hon. Gentleman thinks that he is being very clever and helping the process, but he has not been here long enough to know that it does not quite work that way. Thanks to the excellent selection and grouping of amendments, my little amendment is the lead amendment in this group, so I get to speak first. If the hon. Gentleman would contain himself, we might just find that the Bill...

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill: Clause 15 — Reduction of Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Report Regarding Dynamic Demand Technologies (17 Maw 2006)

Eric Forth: Hon. Members present will know that there is a well worn technique called the probing amendment, and my intention was to do a bit of gentle probing. Look at the fruits that have emerged as a result: we have had a proper debate; we have had the benefit of the expertise of the hon. Member for Southampton, Test (Dr. Whitehead); and we have had an outbreak of consensus, which is not normally...

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill: Clause 16 — Promotion of Community Energy Schemes (17 Maw 2006)

Eric Forth: I beg to move amendment No. 75, in page 10, line 13, at end insert— '(2A) In the exercise of his duty under subsection (1) the Secretary of State must consult— (a) such body or bodies as appear to him to be representative of local authorities; (b) such distributors and suppliers of electricity as he considers relevant; and (c) the Health and Safety Executive.'.

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill: Clause 16 — Promotion of Community Energy Schemes (17 Maw 2006)

Eric Forth: It is always a pleasure to have one's modest amendments grouped with Government amendments. It reinforces the point that the value of our proceedings is that the Government have been able to table many amendments to improve the Bill as they see fit. No doubt, the Bill will benefit from that in the long run. We shall judge the Government amendments in a moment, but their presence validates the...
