Dame Anne Begg, MP for Aberdeen South, is pleased to support ‘Parliament Talks… Energy‘, a free public event at the Banchory West Church, Banchory, Aberdeenshire on Thursday 24th May, 6-8pm.
Dame Anne, who is Chair of the Work and Pensions Select Committee, said: “For those with an interest in energy issues, this is an excellent opportunity to come along and to discuss how Parliament contributes to the debate on energy issues and scrutinises Government policy. It also forms part of the important work carried out by Select Committees.”
The House of Commons Select Committee on Energy and Climate Change is running an inquiry into Consumer Engagement with the Energy Market and want to hear people’s views on energy prices, the future of the UK energy industry and other energy issues.
‘Parliament Talks…Energy’ is the latest of a new series of subject-specific events held around the UK, organised by the Houses of Parliament Outreach Service, highlighting Parliament’s role in scrutinising public policy and holding the Government to account.
The event includes:
- a short talk from Sir Robert Smith MP, member of the Energy and Climate Change Committee;
- discussion groups where the audience will be given the opportunity to share their views on energy prices and the future of the UK energy industry;
- a question and answer session where the audience can ask about both energy issues and the work of Parliament.
