Signed, sealed and delivered, an ambitious climate change deal for Europe

This article was first published on Liberal Democrat Voice:

We’ve done it!  For Liberal Democrats in government, this EU climate deal is our most significant green win so far.  While Liberal Democrats are passionate about tackling climate change, the likes of Owen Paterson and UKIP seem to delight in talking down the threat that it poses, but that should make us even more determined to tell people why this deal is so crucial.

Kingston and Surbiton residents could save £1.2m a year if they take control of their heating

Big Energy Saving Week – a joint campaign between Energy Saving Trust, Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and Citizens Advice – reveals 74 per cent of Brits are still worried about their energy bills. The campaign helps householders learn how to take control of their energy bills with free advice available during the week over the phone, online and at events across the UK.

Energy and Climate Change Secretary, and MP for Kingston and Surbiton, Ed Davey said: “The easiest way to cut energy bills fast is to shop around for the cheapest energy deal and switch suppliers - households in Kingston and Surbiton could save as much as £75 a year. Thanks to government action to reform the energy market the number of independent suppliers has almost trebled since 2010 – encouraging greater competition which helps drive down prices. 

“We’re also making it easier and quicker for people to switch, and the major energy suppliers have confirmed that switching times will halve by the end of this year to just two and a half weeks.”

Edward Davey pledges to tackle prostate cancer inequalities

Edward Davey talks tactics with campaigners at the Liberal Democrat Party conference as he pledges to tackle prostate cancer inequalities

Edward Davey, MP for Kingston & Surbiton, has pledged his support to help eradicate the inequalities men with prostate cancer face after speaking with campaigners at the Liberal Democrat Party conference in Glasgow last week. 

Despite being the most common cancer in men, those affected by or at risk of prostate cancer continue to face a number of injustices, particularly when it comes to access to the best treatments and aftercare support for their condition.

My speech to Conference, October 2014

Conference, Liberal Democrats are fundamentally different from other parties.

We are the challengers of vested interests. Challengers of the establishment. Challenging for the opportunities people thirst for.

When the Tories starved our schools of investment in the 80s and 90s, Paddy Ashdown broke the Conservative-Labour taboo on tax rises – so we could pay for better education.

Tackling climate change

This article first appeared in Liberal Democrat Voice:

I’m writing from the Climate Change Summit in New York, hosted by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon. While Liberal Democrats don’t need reminding just how much of a threat climate change is – from the increased risks of flooding, to the impact on the world’s poorest – I thought it timely to give you an update on the progress we’ve made and what comes
next.

The quiet skills and business revolution: the apprenticeship boom.

Apprenticeships are booming in the Royal Borough – and across Britain.

"Kingston & Surbiton is my home and I want the best for it"

Well it helps I’m the MP for the area where I live!

Why I don’t want Scotland to vote for independence

Scottish independence may seem irrelevant to some people. Here we are in Surbiton. We don’t have a vote in the referendum. We’re nearer to France than we are to Scotland. It won’t really affect us.

Ceasefire in Gaza

Commenting on the new ceasefire in Gaza which at last appears to be holding, local MP, Edward Davey said:

"The death and destruction in Gaza has been horrific and it's been vital that our Government has used all diplomatic means working with others to bring this ceasefire about.

“Mind The Gap” campaign wins out at Norbiton Station

Campaigners welcome Network Rail & SWT’s commitment for safety improvements at Norbiton’s platforms as a “big win for Norbiton passengers and Kingston Hospital patients”.

A long campaign by local Liberal Democrats, Norbiton residents and Kingston Hospital to improve safety for passengers at Norbiton train station has paid off, with Network Rail and South West Trains agreeing to invest in refurbishing both platforms.
