Last quote by Greg Clark

It is right that every so often the Government reviews its mergers regime to close loopholes where they arise and this is what these proposals do in the area of national security. No part of the economy is off-limits to foreign investment and the UK will continue to be a vociferous advocate for free trade and a magnet for global talent.feedback

Jul 24 2017 - Clean energy

We know that in the future the potential for renewable energy is often limited by its intermittency. So we know the ability to store the energy ready for when it is needed is key to its deployment. Its work will quite literally power the automotive and energy revolution, where the UK is already leading the world.feedback

Jul 23 2017

Joining together the research, development, application and manufacture of energy storage technologies – and specifically battery storage – is a huge opportunity for the energy sector and the automotive sector alike.feedback

Jul 23 2017

During the autumn... and as the negotiations move forward, we hope from their initial discussion, then that's the time to say more about that.feedback

Jun 23 2017 - London

This product, which was manufactured between 2006 and 2009, has not been subkect to product recalls and this testing will establish whether any further action is required.

Jun 14 2017

We will get Ofgem to set an absolute cap.feedback

May 09 2017 - London

Championing high growth, innovative SMEs is crucial for the continued success of the UK economy. We are committed to ensuring that companies of all sizes can access finance to grow, scale-up and create high quality well-paid jobs across the country.feedback

May 09 2017

I think there should be a safeguard so that if you are loyal to your supplier, if you are someone that doesn't perhaps have access to the internet and is not able to haggle with your supplier...you shouldn't have the reality of paying through the nose for that.feedback

May 09 2017

We've worked with industry to make it quicker and easier to switch supplier and nearly eight million people are now benefiting from better deals, but millions of energy customers continue to pay too much.feedback

May 09 2017

I haven't switched, one of the reasons is... it is quite a hassle to do so. And in my view it shouldn't be necessary to have to switch, to have to go through the fuss, simply to avoid being ripped off. I think there should be a safeguard so that if you are loyal to your supplier, if you are someone that doesn't perhaps have access to the internet and is not able to haggle with your supplier, then you should pay a bit more than the best deals, but you shouldn't feel that your or shouldn't have the reality of paying through the nose for that.feedback

May 09 2017

If the price of gas goes up in world markets then of course you would expect that to increase. If the price goes down, then you would expect the price to go down. That is why it is sensible to put it in the hands – and this is what the competition authority recommended for prepayment meters – of the regulator.feedback

May 09 2017

No, that was a botched policy. They talked about a freeze, they even advertised it in a block of ice, and what happened after that was that the wholesale price of gas and electricity fell, and so if it had been introduced then people would have paid more than needed.feedback

May 09 2017

They were in two minds about whether that should be extended beyond that. The minority report felt this was not going to remove that detriment to consumers quickly enough. We are taking the same approach that the CMA to prepayment meters but doing what the minority report said.feedback

May 09 2017

It shouldn't be a politician deciding this is going to the price of energy – that was another fault of the Ed Miliband proposal. Ofgem are the experts in this, they should be given the power to set this safeguard tariff to make sure people are not ripped off.feedback

May 09 2017

Labour's was a very crude policy. It was to directly intervene by politicians setting the tariffs. What we have responded to is a two-year investigation by the CMA that there is £1.4bn a year on average of overcharging. What we are acting on is a diagnosis from the competition authority that says that from the standard tariffs, the default ones that people are transferred to, people are being overcharged by £1.4bn a year. That is what the competition authority said. I think we have got a duty to act. So we are going to bring a cap for those default tariffs, so people can't be over charged.feedback

May 08 2017

We will act on our commitment to intervene when the energy market fails to treat people in a fair and reasonable manner.feedback

Apr 19 2017

If the competitors in this industry don't see this as behaviour that is damaging consumers, I do - and I will act. The response will be muscular and strong and will apply to all of the companies who are disadvantaging consumers.feedback

Apr 19 2017

We will have to reflect on timing. For consumers who aren't able to be so active or so fleet of foot, they are being milked. It's in no one's interest at all to partition functioning markets.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - Immigration

How that comes about over the next two years, we will argue our position, the Premier League will argue their position and the Government will listen to both and I suspect a sensible compromise will be reached.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - Immigration

What we want to do is find a sensible way round that works for a post-Brexit Britain, that works for employment law and the Government, and works for the Premier League and works for the FA. For that compromise to work, it will be somewhere in the middle. It won't be an open-door policy, it won't be no foreigners. It will be, Let's let world-class Premier League teams bring in world-class players but not average international players.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Driverless cars

Companies around the world are making major investments and this offers long-term value for the UK as we punch above our weight. If the UK doesn't take this opportunity, many other countries will.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Driverless cars

We need to trial it carefully but this is life-saving technology. It would be wrong to convey this as inherently risky technology. Human error is a more 'dependable' source of accidents and fatalities and this has got to be a well tested, demonstrated and regulated. We don't want to get back to waving red flags; we can get it right and need to get to a common-sense application of technology that will save lives.feedback

Mar 27 2017

We have a responsibility to ensure that the NDA's decisions reflect its legal obligations, including under procurement law, that further risks to taxpayers' money are contained and that robust arrangements are put in place to deliver this essential decommissioning programme. Taxpayers must be confident that public bodies are operating effectively and securing value for money. Where this has not been achieved such bodies should be subject to rigorous scrutiny.feedback

Mar 27 2017

This was a defective procurement, with significant financial consequences, and I am determined that the reasons for it should be exposed and understood; that those responsible should properly be held to account; and that it should never happen again.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Carbon

Our iconic black cabs are famous across the world. The London Taxi Company's impressive new factory and R&D facility showcases the innovation that makes the UK a world leader in the development of new automotive technologies. Through our ambitious industrial strategy, we are committed to building on our strengths and taking advantage of the opportunities the new low-carbon economy provides.feedback

Mar 16 2017 - Toyota

As we prepare to leave the EU, this government is committed through our industrial strategy to ensuring the UK remains one of the best places in the world to do business and we are able to help businesses seize on economic opportunities.feedback

Mar 16 2017 - Toyota

Our automotive sector is one of the most productive in the world and Toyota's decision to invest £240m upgrading its Burnaston plant is a further boost to the UK auto sector. Toyota is one of the world's largest car producers and this inward investment underlines the company's faith in its employees and will help ensure the plant is well positioned for future Toyota models to be made in the UK.feedback

Mar 14 2017 - Unilever

We have taken the opportunity to look at our arrangements to make sure they are kept up to date. We have said we would do that in the context of mergers, particularly if it relates to critical infrastructure, as outlined by the Hinkley Point C decision [to build a new nuclear power station with funding from China]. So we will be setting out some proposals in the weeks ahead.feedback

Mar 06 2017 - Opel

The context clearly is nothing to do with Brexit. This is a restructuring of the organisation. And in my discussions with PSA, actually the chief executive has said today that Brexit isn't an essential driver of this, and we want to have the best possible trading relationship with Europe, but in any event Carlos Tavares has said there are opportunities post-Brexit.feedback

Mar 06 2017 - PSA Group

We will continue to engage and work with PSA in the weeks and months ahead to ensure these assurances are kept and will build on the success of both sites for the long term.feedback

Mar 06 2017 - PSA Group

The government welcomes the assurance by PSA that they will respect the commitments made by GM to Vauxhall's employees and pensioners. We will continue to engage and work with PSA in the weeks and months ahead to ensure these assurances are kept and will build on the success of both sites for the long term.feedback

Mar 06 2017 - PSA Group

We've said that by being part of the UK automotive sector, all of the benefits of that in terms of research and development, in terms of trading, in terms of the expansion we see through the industrial strategy of the supply chain, will be available to all such companies. The fact that plants are going to be judged, as they tend to be in the automotive sector for new models, on the basis of their competitive efficiency is a strength for us in this country, because our automotive plants are the strongest in the world.feedback

Mar 06 2017 - Opel

Vauxhall has a long history of success in this country and we are determined to see that continue. The government welcomes the assurance by PSA that they will respect the commitments made by GM to Vauxhall's employees and pensioners.feedback

Mar 06 2017 - Opel

We will continue to engage and work with PSA in the weeks and months ahead to ensure these assurances are kept and will build on the success of both sites for the long term. The prime minister and I have been in close contact with the PSA Group and General Motors and they have been clear this deal is an opportunity to grow the Vauxhall brand, building on their existing strengths and commitments.feedback

Mar 03 2017 - Opel

My personal commitment and the commitment of this government will be unbounded to make sure the future of the workforce will be maintained.feedback

Mar 03 2017 - Opel

I will of course work with all the groups, including the trade unions, including the workforce, to make that case, if new owners there are to be, to those new owners.feedback

Feb 24 2017 - PSA Group

We discussed how PSA's approach is to increase market share and expand production rather than close plants. I was assured that the commitments to the plants would be honoured.feedback

Feb 24 2017 - PSA Group

There was also recognition that members of the Vauxhall pension fund will be no worse off.feedback

Feb 22 2017 - PSA Group

There was a recognition, which I emphasised, of the contribution to the performance of Vauxhall, of the two plants and indeed the other operations that they have in this country. They are efficient, they are successful and there was a clear recognition of that by PSA.feedback

Feb 20 2017 - PSA Group

One of the points the PSA executives made to me was that since the new management of PSA has been in place, they have taken some pride in having part of their strategy not to close plants.feedback

Feb 16 2017

There is some way to go in discussions between GM and PSA but I was reassured by GM's intention, communicated to me, to build on the success of these operations rather than rationalise them. We will continue to be in close contact with GM and PSA in the days and weeks ahead.feedback

Feb 09 2017

I look forward to hearing more about (Liberty House's) expansion plan. We want to work with the steel industry to transform and upgrade their sector as part of the (government's) Industrial Strategy.feedback

Nov 29 2016

It is available for companies ... we're not going to make it happen. But I think what we do want to do is to give a stronger voice to workers on boards.feedback

Nov 24 2016

This is very much with a view on the medium and long term horizon rather than a countervailing response to Brexit. It's not that kind of short-term stimulus.feedback

Nov 21 2016

(Norton) had been declining with the declines in PC market share. This acquisition brings $660 million in revenue to the consumer business and returns it to longer sustainable growth.feedback

Carney "has done a tremendous job, a fantastic job.feedback

The Government will now be able to prevent the sale of EDF's controlling stake prior to the completion of construction. This agreement will be confirmed in an exchange of letters between the Government and EDF. Existing legal powers, and the new legal framework, will mean that the Government is able to intervene in the sale of EDF's stake once Hinkley is operational.feedback

Sep 15 2016

It's important that the right balance between welcoming foreign investment and ensuring that it serves the national interest is made. That is exactly what these changes will achieve. The investment will secure seven per cent of the UK's electricity needs for 60 years, helping replace existing nuclear capacity which is due to be decommissioned in the decade ahead.feedback

Aug 16 2016 - Clean energy

The U.K.'s offshore wind industry has grown at an extraordinary rate over the last few years, and is a fundamental part of our plans to build a clean, affordable, secure energy system.

Jul 29 2016

Nuclear energy was "an important part of the mix" for the U.K.'s energy supply. The government will now consider carefully all the component parts of this project and make its decision in the early autumn.feedback

Aug 11 2015

What we are saying is that we have to crack down on those rogue landlords that exploit the immigration system by deliberately renting properties to people who don't have the right to be in this country.
