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?

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

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman is very clear and honest in his plans about wanting to spend a lot more money—half a trillion pounds in manifesto commitments—but at the same time the manifesto said that Labour would reduce the national debt. How is that possible?

Palestinian Communities: Israeli Demolitions — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: I congratulate the hon. Member for Aberavon (Stephen Kinnock) on securing this very important debate. I accept many of his arguments and respect the tone in which he put them, although I take issue with one point. This matter has been an issue for successive Governments and it is important that we work across parties to try to resolve the problems. The issue was brought to my attention by...

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (1 Dec 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: And London.

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (1 Dec 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: Surely the logical case is that that number is less, and therefore the cost of running this House will be less. Is that not logical?

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (1 Dec 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: There was no hilarity in terms of the point about crime on this side of the House; it was to do with the fact that the hon. Gentleman was trying to connect the boundary review with the rise in crime. What is the connection between the two? Nobody can understand the hon. Gentleman’s point.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (28 Nov 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: I will focus my remarks on chapter 4 of the Budget, which is on productivity, because as it says in the Red Book, that is how we boost wages, improve living standards and improve overall prosperity across the nation. Incredibly, if we could close the productivity gap with Germany, we would increase our GDP by 33%. Competition is the key to improving productivity, and the Red Book states that...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (28 Nov 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: Rebalancing the economy is a key part of the industrial strategy, and one of the reasons why London gets a much better deal on investment is its ability to attract private sector investment, which the north has very little capability to do. Has my right hon. Friend any plans to try to resolve that issue so that we can attract more private sector funding for infrastructure investment in the north?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (28 Nov 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: Despite the clear wrongdoings in the banking sector highlighted by the RBS global restructuring group scandal, small and medium-sized enterprises cannot access justice because the banks are too wealthy to sue. The all-party parliamentary group on fair business banking and finance is calling for an independent financial services tribunal to provide accountability. Will my hon. Friend agree to...

Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Bill (Money) (13 Nov 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: I thank the Minister for setting out the financial implications of the Bill and for again confirming the Government’s support for it. I, too, am delighted and grateful that there is cross-party support for the Bill. Given such support, I feel confident that it will become an Act and that employed parents who lose a child under the age of 18 will have the right to a minimum of two weeks...
