Kingston College is an “exemplar” of the Liberal Democrat focus on apprentices, says Ed Davey

On a visit to Kingston College on Monday 26 January 2015 Ed was given a guided tour of some of the excellent workshops within the college and had a chance to meet some of the eager and driven young apprentices on various schemes.

The importance of Pupil Premium

On a recent visit to two schools in the constituency, I was very pleased to hear once again that the Liberal Democrat initiative of ‘Pupil Premium’ payments were making such a key difference to schools and the children who attend them.

Save our weekly recycling

Your recycling may be about to change – from weekly collection to fortnightly. Kingston Council has surprised residents with proposals to require them to store all their recycling, except food, for two weeks. One week you’ll have to put out your glass and tins, the next week your paper and cardboard.

Christmas greetings

In wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, I hope your 2014 was as happy as mine when Emily and I were blessed with the birth of our daughter Eleanor: I'll always be grateful to the wonderful staff at Kingston Hospital's maternity unit.

Live from Lima

This article first appeared in Liberal Democrat Voice:

I’m half way through my third day at the Lima UN climate change talks and the negotiations look set to go to the wire this weekend.

But that’s not because there’s some crisis in the global talks – it’s because these are the most technically complex and politically challenging global negotiations ever. To make global agreements on how we move our carbon world to a low carbon world is an extraordinary task.

An Autumn Statement for more green energy and more help to keep energy bills down

This article first appeared in Liberal Democrat Voice:

Liberal Democrats in Government already have a record of green energy delivery to be proud of.  Renewable electricity generation and investment have both more than doubled since 2010 and our reforms will create 250,000 low carbon jobs by the end of the decade.  Britain is ranked No.1 in the world for offshore wind investment, onshore wind now produces around 5% of the UK’s electricity and solar generating capacity increased by 60% last year.

Evidence for better education policies – the case of free school meals

When a Government introduces a new policy you would hope Ministers have some evidence that the policy is likely to work. There are few areas more important than education for having an evidence-based approach to new policies than education. Children shouldn’t be used as experiments for a fashionable theory.

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.
