Parliament was dissolved on 30th March 2015, and from that date I and all my colleagues in the House of Commons are no longer MPs. However, the Government still remains in place so I will continue as Secretary of State until after the election.

You are welcome to browse this website which is a record of my service as the Member of Parliament for Kingston & Surbiton from 1997. During that time I conducted more advice sessions for constituents than any other London MP.

Please contact me if you would like to help me get re-elected as your MP.
 

 

Rt Hon Ed Davey, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change

 

Rezoning campaign latest

In the last year, I have been making real progress in my long-running campaign to rezone Kingston and Surbiton railway stations to zone 5.

Investing in green energy

This article first appeared in Liberal Democrat Voice.

Today I published the Government’s first ever ‘Energy Investment Report’.  It shows how Liberal Democrats in Government have delivered on jobs and investment in energy – particularly green energy – and shows the plan we now have for this to continue for decades to come.

Let me be clear – investment in the energy sector has not been a ‘nice to have’.  We inherited a legacy of energy underinvestment from Labour and we’ve spent the last four years turning this around.   The sheer scale of the investment has already been huge: between 2010 and 2013 we’ve secured £45 billion of investment in electricity generation and networks alone.  The UK’s future energy infrastructure investment is larger than transport, communications and water spending combined.

Fix the EU's Carbon-Trading System

This article first appeared in BloombergView.

President Barack Obama recently said in an interview on climate and energy that if there’s one thing he would like to see, it would be for the U.S. to be able to put a price on carbon emissions. He is right -- an effective market-driven approach to carbon pricing is crucial to tackling climate change and reducing emissions. The U.K. was the first to adopt carbon trading in 2002, and it continues to trade under the European Union’s Emissions Trading System.

Davey welcomes Lib Dems promise of Carer’s Bonus of up to £250 for Britain’s “unsung heroes”

Kingston and Surbiton MP, Edward Davey has welcomed the announcement that, under a Liberal Democrat government, carers will receive a bonus worth up to £250-a-year.

My local constituency advice surgeries: an insight

Most weeks, I hold two constituency advice surgeries – occasions when local people can come and see me with their problems – or just come to give me their views, face-to-face.

Lib Dems to protect education budget from cradle to college

The Liberal Democrats will protect the full education budget in the next parliament, the Deputy Prime Minister announced today.

Nick Clegg said the party would ringfence education spending for 2 to 19-year-olds.

This means the Liberal Democrats would protect an extra £10billion of education spending based on this financial year, rising with inflation.

A better deal for people on pre-payment energy meters

This article first appeared in Liberal Democrat Voice:

Liberal Democrats in Government are doing everything possible to help consumers with their energy bills.  Just last week I announced that by the end of the year energy suppliers will halve the time it takes to switch energy supplier from the current five to two and a half weeks.  This is just the first step to achieving my ambition of achieving 24 hour switching.

In Europe, In Work

There are many reasons why I believe Britain must stay in the European Union.

The peace and security Europe has enjoyed for nearly 70 years is partly a result of European nations working more closely together than ever before. As we commemorate the centenary of the First World War this year, for many people peace will be reason enough to stay in the EU.

Massive boost for clean, green energy

Published in Liberal Democrat Voice:

Today I have announced the award of 8 new contracts for renewable electricity projects which will provide around £12 billion of private sector investment and once built will contribute around 4% of Britain’s electricity capacity.

These projects will support 8500 jobs and our overall electricity reform plans will generate over 200,000 green jobs. These projects and the jobs created will be across Britain – from the Moray Firth to Liverpool Bay and from Teesside to Norfolk.

Five of the projects are for offshore wind power generation – further reinforcing the UK’s No 1 position for offshore wind capacity and investment.

Davey celebrates increase in income tax threshold

Edward Davey, Liberal Democrat MP for Kingston & Surbiton has celebrated the fact that from this April 5th 2014 (last weekend) Liberal Democrats in Government have delivered on their promise to raise the income tax threshold to £10,000 of their income.  This means that no-one pays tax on the first £10,000 they earn, resulting in a tax cut of £700 for 73,500 people in Kingsto
