Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 64 - Extended ring fence expenditure supplement for onshore activities (13 Mai 2014)

Duncan Hames: I thank the hon. Gentleman for giving way, because my point is relevant to the debate and the Bill. Given his concerns about hydraulic fracturing, am I right to interpret from his remarks about coal that he would rather the UK burn more coal—more UK coal—for electricity than develop hydraulic fracturing to extract gas? Is that his position?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 64 - Extended ring fence expenditure supplement for onshore activities (13 Mai 2014)

Duncan Hames: If the hon. Gentleman is concerned about there being an appetite for solar power, he should visit Wiltshire, where there are numerous applications under way. Why would any energy company be interested in raising finance to invest in new electricity generating capacity when a prospective Government are committed to freezing the company’s prices and preventing it deriving a return on that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Service Complaints Commissioner (Annual Report) (12 Mai 2014)

Duncan Hames: What assessment he has made of the findings of the recent annual report of the Service Complaints Commissioner.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Service Complaints Commissioner (Annual Report) (12 Mai 2014)

Duncan Hames: I thank the Minister for that reply, which shows that she understands the seriousness of these problems. The Service Complaints Commissioner’s report finds that the Army manages to resolve only a quarter of complaints within its target of 24 weeks. How will the move to a service complaints ombudsman prevent, in the words of Dr Atkins, “a fundamental breach of duty of care and of the Armed...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Finance (No. 2) Bill: (Except clauses 1, 5 to 7, 11, 72 to 74 and 112, schedule 1, and certain new clauses and schedules) - Clause 39 - Pension flexibility: drawdown ( 8 Mai 2014)

Duncan Hames: Does the Minister think that the greater flexibility for savers, including the freedom to choose not to take out an annuity or as much of an annuity, may incentivise the providers of such products to be more competitive in the terms they offer?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Finance (No. 2) Bill: (Except clauses 1, 5 to 7, 11, 72 to 74 and 112, schedule 1, and certain new clauses and schedules) - Clause 39 - Pension flexibility: drawdown ( 8 Mai 2014)

Duncan Hames: The hon. Gentleman talks about advice and people making serious decisions about their long-term futures. In that case, will he consider the merits of some de minimis value criteria? Surely he would not wish to place administrative burdens or expensive requirements that would not represent value for money on someone with a very small pension pot that cannot make a large difference to their future.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 39 - Pension flexibility: drawdown ( 8 Mai 2014)

Duncan Hames: It is relevant that the hon. Lady mentioned that many of these pension pots are very small. Would she apply the requirement to take advice when considering purchasing replacement products, or would that apply simply to taking funds out of these pension pots? A constituent who recently came to my surgery was on a modest NHS pension, but also had a very small pension pot that, until now, she...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: East-West Route ( 8 Mai 2014)

Duncan Hames: What consideration he has given to extending the proposed east-west route from Oxford to Bristol or Cardiff.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: East-West Route ( 8 Mai 2014)

Duncan Hames: I thank the Minister for that encouraging reply. Before long, we shall start to look at the specifications for the next Great Western franchise, and services along that route could stop at a reopened Corsham station. Given the importance of our ambitions for Corsham in the strategic economic plan, how should we go about including those services in the next franchise?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions ( 6 Mai 2014)

Duncan Hames: The Government were due to publish before March their response to the public consultation on their proposed changes to the Office of the Public Guardian and supervision of deputies. When will this happen so that we can better protect the vulnerable people whose best interests are meant to be served by them?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Finance (No. 2) Bill: (Except clauses 1, 5 to 7, 11, 72 to 74 and 112, schedule 1, and certain new clauses and new schedules) - Clause 2 - Basic rate limit for 2015-16 and personal allowances from 2015 (29 Ebr 2014)

Duncan Hames: I am slightly puzzled by the hon. Gentleman’s concern about the number of people paying the 40p rate of tax, as he will know that the measure proposed in new clause 1 would specifically guarantee an increase in the number of people paying tax at that rate. Some people in the professions that he outlined would be brought into the 40p rate under the policy set out in new clause 1. Does he...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Finance (No. 2) Bill: (Except clauses 1, 5 to 7, 11, 72 to 74 and 112, schedule 1, and certain new clauses and new schedules) - Clause 2 - Basic rate limit for 2015-16 and personal allowances from 2015 (29 Ebr 2014)

Duncan Hames: The hon. Lady is omitting to mention the clawback mechanism that applied to the age-related allowance. As a result of the age-related allowance being clawed back, many pensioners —albeit not those on the lowest incomes, but none the  less those with lower-than-average incomes—were paying an effective marginal income tax rate of 30%. Does she believe that that level of income is an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (29 Ebr 2014)

Duncan Hames: Last Friday, my right hon. Friend the Chief Secretary saw the world-class robotics engineers of Anthony Best Dynamics in Bradford-on-Avon. What is he doing to create the conditions in which such successful manufacturers can continue to grow right where they are?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (28 Ebr 2014)

Duncan Hames: The Government are rightly proud of having ended the shameful practice of child detention for immigration purposes. If those children are ultimately to be detained, is it not incumbent on the Home Office to ensure that their cases have been fully resolved before they turn 18, or, failing that, to be consistent in its approach until those cases have been completed?

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (10 Ebr 2014)

Duncan Hames: The Budget invited universities and others to bid to develop the new Alan Turing institute for big data, an invitation enthusiastically embraced in Wiltshire and Swindon’s economic plan. How can we now work with the Minister to make this bright idea a reality?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions ( 8 Ebr 2014)

Duncan Hames: The Foreign Secretary will have heard the findings of the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report on the impact of climate change. What diplomatic initiatives are his Department taking to broker international agreement to cut global carbon emissions?

Energy and Climate Change: Topical Questions ( 3 Ebr 2014)

Duncan Hames: The latest quarterly figures reveal that the share of the UK’s electricity generated from renewable sources rose year on year from an eighth of our electricity supply to a sixth. Does my right hon. Friend agree that we need to go further in reducing carbon emissions from our energy supply and that, given that the largest share of that increase came from onshore wind, that should play a key part?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Yarl’s Wood Immigration Centre (Detainee Death) (31 Maw 2014)

Duncan Hames: I wholeheartedly support the appeal made by my hon. Friend the Member for Enfield, Southgate (Mr Burrowes). How can a Government who are rightly proud to have ended child detention for immigration purposes keep an 18-year-old, who is a star pupil at her school, out of the classroom and in detention at Yarl’s Wood? What lessons should her fellow pupils learn from this episode?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (31 Maw 2014)

Duncan Hames: I congratulate the Pensions Minister on the radical reforms he announced last week, which will be warmly welcomed by the retired secondary cancer patient whose case I raised with him before the Budget. How soon will people like her be able to get their hands on what is, after all, their own money?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (26 Maw 2014)

Duncan Hames: After Dunlop’s departure, does the Prime Minister agree that we should assist investment in the most energy-efficient plants in order to ensure a competitive and sustainable future for tyre manufacturers committed to keeping jobs in Britain?
