Clean Energy Superpower Mission (18 Gor 2024)

Robbie Moore: I welcome the Secretary of State to his place, but I have to say that the Government’s disastrous decision to industrialise our highly productive, good agricultural land by approving three huge solar farms clearly demonstrates their unwillingness to listen to the concerns of local rural communities; it runs roughshod over them and their ability to have their say. It is also hugely...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Water Treatment (24 Mai 2024)

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Air Quality Grant Scheme (24 Mai 2024)

Robbie Moore: The awards were withdrawn because I had concerns that the Local Air Quality Grant Scheme would not deliver the most positive outcomes for local air quality at this particular time and so I have asked Defra officials to consider redesigning the Scheme in the future, to be able to better deliver those positive outcomes and therefore enhanced value for money for taxpayers. The latest...
