Housing, Communities and Local Government: Local Authorities: Covid-19 Prevention (20 Jul 2020)

Kate Hollern: The Health Secretary quite rightly praised my local council of Blackburn for its efforts to bring down infection rates. I quote: “On Blackburn, I think the council… are doing a fantastic job… they’ve taken… steps locally and I applaud that. This is exactly the sort of local action we want to see.” Although Councillor Khan welcomes the praise, as do the communities that have worked...

Non-Domestic Rating (Public Lavatories) Bill (16 Jul 2020)

Kate Hollern: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Bristol West (Thangam Debbonaire) for her in-depth research and the passion with which she spoke about public loos. I am very pleased that the Minister recognises the vital role that public lavatories play in our communities, our town centres, our parks and our community centres. People’s ability to work, shop or enjoy their leisure time depends on...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Departmental Spending (9 Jul 2020)

Kate Hollern: I thank everyone in the Chamber for their contributions, in particular my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield South East (Mr Betts) who introduced the debate, and my hon.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Departmental Spending (9 Jul 2020)

Kate Hollern: I can actually prove it, Minister. They have been given no information or have been given information too late to implement any changes. As for the app, I am sure we will see it some day. All of this has been a recipe for disaster, but councils have kept their promises, because they are committed to serving their residents. Yet again, councils will be given no comfort in this estimates debate...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Local Authorities: Lost Revenue (15 Jun 2020)

Kate Hollern: Thank you, Mr Speaker, but it is not so sunny today I am afraid. The Government made a promise to councils that they would provide full support so that councils could do whatever it takes to get through the coronavirus crisis. According to Local Government Association figures released on 29 May, councils needed as much as £6 billion to cover the cost of coping with the ongoing pandemic. If...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Covid-19: Waste Collection Staff (28 Apr 2020)

Kate Hollern: Thank you, Mr Speaker. The new online portal for councils to order PPE has still not gone live. Despite being promised that it would be open three weeks ago, we are now told it is likely to be another three weeks. The first duty of any employer is to keep their staff safe while working. Councils are desperately trying to buy, and are asking for donations of, PPE because their stocks are...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Local Authority Spending: Value for Money (24 Feb 2020)

Kate Hollern: Time and time again, it has been proven that local government has the most efficient public services, yet the largest pressures facing local government are in adult social care and children’s services. Despite that, those services will still be cut. Blackburn has growing demand and limited resources. The Minister may announce huge amounts of money but in reality that will not even cover...

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (17 Oct 2019)

Kate Hollern: During the Prime Minister’s leadership campaign, he promised to look into the impact of the changes in state pension age for women. Will the Minister commit to working with the Prime Minister to provide transitional arrangements for the women of the 1950s, who have been hit hardest?

Non-Invasive Precision Cancer Therapies (18 Jul 2019)

Kate Hollern: I echo the comments of my hon. Friend the Member for Easington (Grahame Morris). There is not one Member in this House whose life has not been touched by cancer. My late partner, John, suffered from it and, sadly, lost his battle two years ago, despite excellent treatment from the Royal Blackburn Hospital. I know and sympathise with many constituents struggling through treatment. Major...

Kate Hollern: What steps he is taking to ensure that his Department’s immigration policies do not unfairly discriminate on the basis of (a) race and (b) nationality.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Immigration Policies (15 Jul 2019)

Kate Hollern: An Iranian refugee in my constituency applied for a Home Office travel document and has been refused. He was told that he must get a passport from his own country, which, as he fled that country, is almost impossible. Even to apply for a passport, he would have to agree to sign up for national service. Surely that is discrimination.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (15 Jul 2019)

Kate Hollern: The Government have been severely complacent in preparing fire services for an emergency on the scale of Grenfell Tower. There are still hundreds of dangerous high-rise buildings, and by continuing to degrade our fire service, the Government are failing to recognise the severity of the risk. Since Grenfell, Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service’s funding has been slashed by £3.8 million....

Health and Social Care: Social Care Green Paper (19 Feb 2019)

Kate Hollern: Perhaps the Minister can respond about her failings with regard to Government cuts and local government, and particularly the impact on social care, because the Government have created a postcode lottery on the quality of care that residents face, particularly in Blackburn. The Secretary of State spoke about political nonsense to my hon. Friend the Member for Wallasey (Ms Eagle). What is a...
