Explanation of written questions
18th Mar 2021
To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what assessment he has made of the (a) level of abatement of emissions from UK steelmaking by 2050, and (b) proportion of expected abatement mechanisms from (i) the use of hydrogen, (ii) fuel switching, (iii) alternative sources of carbon and (iv) carbon capture and storage.

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy use emission projections[1] for different sectors of the economy including for Iron and Steel out to 2040 (see Annex C: Carbon dioxide emissions by IPCC). The emission projections show the Iron and Steel sector has carbon emissions of 9 Mt CO2e by 2040.

The Department has published an Industrial Decarbonisation Strategy[2] which presents two options for decarbonisation of the Iron and Steel Industry by 2050:

i) The first option shows the abatement potential of carbon capture utilisation and storage (abatement of 6.7 Mt CO2e);

ii) A second option of fuel switching to hydrogen and electric arc furnace. The second solution suggests hydrogen fuel switching of 3.9 MtCO2e and 3.5 MtCO2e of electric fuel switching by 2050.

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what estimate he has made of UK steel production, per annum until 2050.

Some assumptions about future steel production are embedded in the department’s energy and emissions projections. However, these do not take future world and domestic market conditions facing UK steel producers into account.

Nadhim Zahawi
Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department of Health and Social Care)
18th Mar 2021
To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what estimate he has made of (a) UK steel requirements per annum to 2050 and (b) the expected country of origin of that steel expressed as a percentage in each year to 2050.

The Department commissioned the ‘Future capacities and capabilities of the UK steel industry’ study [2017] which provided an estimated UK steel demand in 2030 of around 11 million tonnes.

As of the 22nd April 2021, over 93,000 jobs have been made available for young people to apply to through the Department for Work and Pensions’ (DWP) Kickstart Scheme. This includes approximately 16,600* jobs started by young people. There have been over 195,000 jobs approved by the scheme.

More than 260 young people, on average, have started a Kickstart job every day for the last six weeks**.

The tables below show these figures split by region and sector, the data presented has been rounded according to DWP statistical rounding convention. Although care is taken when processing and analysing Kickstart applications, referrals and starts, the data collected might be subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large-scale recording system which has been developed quickly. The management information presented here has not been subjected to the usual standard of quality assurance associated with official statistics, but is provided in the interests of transparency.

*Around 1,000 of the Kickstart jobs started have been provided without government funding.

** This is based on the number of young people starting in Kickstart jobs from 11th March 2021 to 22nd April 2021.

Mims Davies
Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Work and Pensions)
23rd Apr 2021
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many jobs have been approved by the Kickstart Scheme nationally to date.

As of 22nd April, there has been over 195,000 jobs approved by the Department of Work and Pension’s Kickstart scheme.

Although care is taken when processing and analysing Kickstart applications, referrals and starts, the data collected might be subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large-scale recording system which has been developed quickly. The management information presented here has not been subjected to the usual standard of quality assurance associated with official statistics, but is provided in the interests of transparency.

Mims Davies
Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Work and Pensions)
1st Sep 2020
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what assessment her Department has made of the effect on the processing of (a) new and (b) existing Child Maintenance Service cases of new parents' inability to register births during the covid-19 outbreak; and what assessment her Department has made of the effect on that service's users of the Child Maintenance Service not being able to backdate payments more than 12 weeks once those new birth registrations have been confirmed.

No assessment has been made.

In response to the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, temporary changes to the Child Maintenance Service (CMS) were introduced to ensure we could continue to deliver our priorities in supporting separated parents while also supporting wider efforts across the Department to provide financial support to more people. The CMS has now reinstated a full service.

Mims Davies
Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Work and Pensions)
1st Sep 2020
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, with reference to reference to the Child Maintenance Service standard practice of making reassessments when there is a 25 per cent reduction in income, what estimate the Child Maintenance Service has made of the number of non-resident parents whose income has been reduced by 20 per cent under the Government's furlough scheme in response to the covid-19 outbreak.

The CMS has not made any estimate of the number of non-resident parents whose income has been reduced by 20% under the Government’s furlough scheme.

The Government recognises that the income of many separated parents has been affected by the public health emergency. Parents should continue to financially support their children by paying their child maintenance. At the same time, liabilities should remain affordable for paying parents at a time of substantial and rapid fluctuation in incomes.

The scheme is designed so that liabilities remain consistent over the year, with limited changes. The calculation is reviewed annually, and generally only changes during the year if a parents’ income increases or decreases by at least 25 per cent. This balances consistency for children with support for parents experiencing a reduction in income.

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what recent discussions he has had with his Israeli and Emirati counterparts on the normalisation of relations between those nations.

We welcome the announcement of an agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This is an historic step which sees the normalisation of relations between two great friends of the UK. The Foreign Secretary travelled to Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories on 25 August, where he met with the Israeli leadership, including Prime Minister Netanyahu. We welcome both the decision to normalise relations, as well as the suspension of plans for annexation - a move the UK has opposed as it would have been counterproductive to securing peace in the region. On his return, the Foreign Secretary spoke to UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed, to offer congratulations on the agreement with Israel. Sheikh bin Zayed emphasised his conviction that the deal was an opportunity to renew efforts toward peace in the Middle East. We will continue to work together in support of this goal.

James Cleverly
Minister of State (Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office)
2nd Sep 2020
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what support his Department is providing to help expand Israel’s relations with the Arab world.

The UK welcomed the historic Israel-United Arab Emirates normalisation deal, and supports all efforts towards peace. The UK is committed to making progress towards a two-state solution and is strongly supportive of a regional approach to peace. We believe that negotiations will only succeed when they are conducted between Israelis and Palestinians, but international action has a role in facilitating progress. The changing regional context and converging Arab and Israeli interests presents an opening to develop Arab-Israeli relations and create the conditions for serious Israeli-Palestinian talks to resume. The Arab League and Arab states have a key role in the peace process and we are in close contact on this issue.
