answer text <p>Both Ministers and officials in this department regularly meet with counterparts from the Scottish Government to discuss a wide range of issues impacting the oil and gas sector in Scotland. However, given that skills and related issues in Scotland are devolved these issues are a matter for the Devolved Administration.</p><p> </p><p>BEIS Ministers and officials meet regularly with the oil and gas industry. For example, I met a range of oil and gas industry representatives and a member of the Scottish Government during a visit to Aberdeen on 2 September 2019. The visit included attendance at the Maximising Economic Recovery UK (MER UK) Forum, where a range of industry issues were discussed. On 20 August 2019 the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy visited Aberdeen where she met representatives from the energy industry.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The government has recently carried out a review of the impact of voluntary industry measures introduced in 2015 to improve confidence in pre-packaged sales in administration. The review will inform a decision on whether further regulation is required where a business is sold via a pre-pack sale to a person connected with the old company. We expect to publish the outcome of the review shortly.</p><p> </p><p>As part of the review the Government liaised with the Pension Protection Fund, which made clear in its response to concerns raised by the Chair of the DWP Select Committee, that it does not fundamentally take issue with pre-packs but where there are concerns, these are referred to The Pensions Regulator for investigation.</p><p> </p><p>The government already has robust measures in place to prevent directors of insolvent companies who are guilty of poor behaviour from taking part in the management of companies in the future. When a company enters a formal insolvency procedure, such as administration, the insolvency practitioner has a legal duty to report to the Insolvency Service on the conduct of the directors and where wrongdoing is identified, action can be taken to disqualify them for up to 15 years.</p><p> </p><p>The government response to the 2018 White Paper “Protecting Defined Benefit Pension Schemes” proposes additional powers for The Pensions Regulator with a tougher approach to the minority of employers whose irresponsible behaviour does put pension schemes at risk.</p>

answer text <p>The Feed-In Tariffs scheme was introduced to support the widespread adoption of proven small-scale low-carbon electricity generating technologies. The scheme was intended to give the wider public a stake in the transition to a low-carbon economy and in turn foster behavioural change that would support the development of local supply chains and reductions in energy costs. To date the scheme has supported over 830,000 installations, or 6 GW of capacity.</p><p> </p><p>The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is the world’s first long-term financial support programme for renewable heat. The RHI pays participants of the scheme that generate and use renewable heat, or that provide green gas to the gas grid. Under the RHI, the Government has supported over 71,500 homes and over 19,500 businesses, schools, farms and other organisations to install new low carbon heating systems, and these numbers continue to grow (in August 2019 there were over 1,100 domestic applications to participate in the scheme). We estimate that by 2021 the RHI will have supported 21.4 terawatt hours of renewable heat generation. This is equivalent to the annual gas consumption of over 1.6 million households.</p><p> </p><p>In January 2020 the government is introducing a new Smart Export Guarantee, which will ensure that homes and businesses who export their surplus low carbon electricity to the grid can receive payment from their energy suppliers.</p>
