Courts and Tribunals (Judiciary and Functions of Staff) Bill [Lords]: Authorised court and tribunal staff: legal advice and judicial functions (12 Dec 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: This is an important point. Will my hon. and learned Friend come on to address not only the human cost if these amendments are accepted, with the potential for people in these roles at the moment to lose those jobs, but the financial costs of making those people redundant and replacing them with qualified people?

Courts and Tribunals (Judiciary and Functions of Staff) Bill [Lords]: Authorised court and tribunal staff: legal advice and judicial functions (12 Dec 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. and learned Friend mentioned the fine work done by magistrates. Is there any way we could relax the requirements in order to increase the number of cases that may be considered by magistrates? I understand that magistrates are the most cost-effective part of the justice system.

Courts and Tribunals (Judiciary and Functions of Staff) Bill [Lords]: Authorised court and tribunal staff: legal advice and judicial functions (12 Dec 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: The Minister makes a good point about our duty to the taxpayer. Irrespective of this nation’s financial situation, we always have a responsibility to spend the taxpayers’ money wisely. As she knows, Northallerton magistrates court in my constituency will close. She has put in place some mitigation measures to help people to continue to have access to justice, but will she ensure that...

Courts and Tribunals (Judiciary and Functions of Staff) Bill [Lords]: Authorised court and tribunal staff: legal advice and judicial functions (12 Dec 2018)

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (12 Dec 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: What does the Prime Minister consider most important: playing parliamentary parlour games in this place, or protecting jobs and businesses by going back to the negotiating table and thrashing out a deal that will pass through this House?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (11 Dec 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Banks that are guilty of the scandalous mistreatment of small businesses are allowed to design and oversee their own redress schemes, including determining the level of compensation paid to the victims. Does the Minister agree that Parliament and the regulator should take control of those processes?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Adult Social Care (10 Dec 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does my hon. Friend agree that the adoption of a German-style social insurance premium, as recommended by the joint inquiry of the Select Committees on Health and on Communities and Local Government, would ease funding pressures on local authorities and ensure that everyone had access to the social care that they needed?

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: 1st Allotted Day (4 Dec 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: My right hon. Friend talks about avoiding a hard border in Northern Ireland. Speaking to the DUP conference at the weekend before last, he said that if Great Britain chose to vary regulations, there would be a need for regulatory checks and a customs border between Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Does he accept then that in some future world where the UK can vary its regulations as a...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: 1st Allotted Day (4 Dec 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: If Parliament does not support the Prime Minister’s deal, what is the most likely outcome—no deal or no Brexit?

Courts and Tribunals (Judiciary and Functions of Staff) Bill [Lords] (27 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: My right hon. Friend mentioned the start times of hearings. As he will know, Northallerton magistrates court, which serves many of my constituents, is due to close under these reforms. It is important that people can get to a hearing on time, so will requiring people to travel further to a more distant court be taken into account? Will there be mitigation, such as video links, and will those...

Courts and Tribunals (Judiciary and Functions of Staff) Bill [Lords] (27 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the Bill make it easier to set up a new tribunal? I speak in the context of my role as chair of the all-party parliamentary group on fair business banking and finance, which has the idea of setting up a financial services tribunal. We are not seeing a level playing field in our courts between banks and small businesses, and we feel such a tribunal may be a solution. Will the Bill make it...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (27 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Everyone in this place has lost someone close to them to the terrible and terrifying disease that is cancer. How will the NHS 10-year plan help to improve detection rates?

Leaving the EU (26 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does the Prime Minister agree that although the backstop is uncomfortable for the United Kingdom, it is also uncomfortable for the European Union? It allows free and unfettered trade between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK and the European Union, thereby creating a competitive advantage, which the EU is always keen to avoid. It is therefore in everyone’s interests to bring the...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Solar Generation (20 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: What his Department's policy is on rooftop solar.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Solar Generation (20 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Rooftop solar is set to lose support from the feed-in tariff and the export tariff, which help to pay for clean power to the grid. Does my right hon. Friend agree that householders should expect some form of payment rather than simply subsidising large energy companies?

Finance (No. 3) Bill: Carbon Emissions Tax (19 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend makes a good point. Above all, business is looking for stability. It is absolutely right that in the worst-case scenario, in which we end up with no deal, we have a stable framework to enable us to manage our future trading relationship with the European Union.

Finance (No. 3) Bill: Carbon Emissions Tax (19 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is hugely important that we have the negotiated exit that we all want. No deal is the worst possible option, and it is not where we want to go. Nevertheless, we cannot take no deal off the table. I return to my key point about our future energy emissions and ensuring that we reduce our carbon emissions wherever we can. We are world leaders in moving our electricity production away from...
