RBS Global Restructuring Group and Smes (18 Jan 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: First, I must draw the attention of the House to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. I have been in business for 25 years and still am today, and our business was once a customer of RBS. Thankfully, we did not suffer from any of the tragic circumstances that many Members have talked about today. I thank my co-officer on the all-party group on fair business banking,...

RBS Global Restructuring Group and Smes (18 Jan 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: The right hon. Gentleman is making a powerful speech. He mentions the relationship between the FCA and RBS. Is he aware of the leaked minute from an FCA board meeting that says that one of the reasons why the FCA will not release the full report is that it is concerned about being sued by RBS? Does that not raise the question of who is regulating whom in this relationship?

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Topical Questions (10 Jan 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: A number of my constituents have suffered terribly as a result of the contaminated blood scandal. Will my right hon. Friend please update the House on the progress towards the appointment of a chair and the timescales for the inquiry?

Yorkshire Devolution (9 Jan 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Yorkshire Devolution (9 Jan 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I congratulate the hon. Member for Barnsley Central (Dan Jarvis) on securing this important debate, and on the constructive way in which he has dealt with the issue. It feels as if we are making some progress, although perhaps we are not in a perfect position yet. To respond to some of his points, I think that there is a clear feeling across Yorkshire that we are being left behind. On the...

Yorkshire Devolution (9 Jan 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman talks about “wider Yorkshire” and “one Yorkshire”. Are his constituents who voted in the recent referendum aware that it will not encompass all of Yorkshire because Sheffield does not want to be part of that settlement? Are they aware of that?

Yorkshire Devolution (9 Jan 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does the hon. Gentleman’s plan mean that other areas of Yorkshire would not be able to push ahead with a deal before 2020, even if they wanted to? Does it stop anyone else moving forward with their own deal?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Human Rights (9 Jan 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: We provide aid to many countries where appalling human rights abuses take place, whether that be the persecution of minorities or the construction of illegal settlements. Does my hon. Friend agree that we should make aid and direct support for Governments conditional, unless they use best endeavours to tackle such abuses?

Grenfell Tower and Building Safety (18 Dec 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: Some things are best left open to interpretation and some things are simply best proscribed. Does my right hon. Friend consider a simple prohibition of combustible materials on the outside of all high-rise buildings to be the right way forward?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: I have listened carefully to the many esoteric legal arguments that have been advanced this evening. I am afraid that my comments will be far more prosaic and practical. I was on the remain side of the referendum debate, but, like most of my colleagues, I am now focusing on trying to secure the best possible deal, and that deal must centre on what a meaningful vote would be. What does...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: I hope that the Minister’s intervention will satisfy some of my colleagues. Let me end by saying that I will be supporting the Government this evening. In my view, it is time for us to grit our teeth and simply get on with it.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman said earlier that he was focused on getting the best possible process. Should we not be focused on getting the best possible deal in our negotiations? We know the EU does not want us to leave, so if he puts a process in place where the EU can simply knock a deal back to this Parliament, does that not give the EU the incentive to give us the worst possible deal, on the basis...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: Is my hon. Friend aware that no Labour Government have left office with unemployment lower than when they entered office?

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does my hon. Friend agree that all these opportunities to reduce the cost of providing health services in rural areas mean we also need to invest in superfast broadband and digital networks to make sure that people can actually receive this kind of new innovative care?

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Easington (Grahame Morris). We share an economic interest in the A19, so I agree with many of his points. I draw hon. Members’ attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests on my business background, and I am also vice-chair of the all-party parliamentary group on fair business banking. I want to focus on the...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: Businesses fail for many reasons. Business is an extremely risky undertaking—I have been in business most of my life—which is why we should pay tribute to all people who take the step forward to create wealth and jobs. I accept that we need to find more different and innovative ways to get finance to business start-ups and scale-ups. Business banking is unregulated. If a bank acts...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman makes a very good point about the disparity in investment, but he might be interested to know that the moneys from central Government are very similar across the country. What lies behind those figures is the ability of London to leverage in private sector and local authority investment, because those local authorities also get a much better deal.

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does the hon. Lady welcome the huge investment in northern powerhouse rail and the latest proposals for the route to go through the centre of Bradford?

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: Employee shared ownership is something that I did with my business—I draw attention to my entry on the register—but my hon. Friend is right: there are no incentives to do that, other than trying to build loyalty in the workforce. We were advised against it by our tax advisers on the grounds of complexity and cost. We went ahead with it anyway, but putting incentives in place would...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?
