Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Tenant Fees Bill (21 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. Despite the fact that I have been involved in this sector for most of my life, and am still involved, I am very supportive of the Bill and the drive to ban tenant fees. That said, on the hon. Lady’s point about holding deposits and the reference fees that tenants pay to the agent or...

Tower Block Cladding (21 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does the Secretary of State share my surprise that the Hackitt review did not look in detail at the building regulations? Does he accept the need for urgent revision of the building regulations and clarity on them, particularly with regard to combustible materials, and will he set out the process and timescale for that review?

Plastic Bottles and Coffee Cups (17 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: May I pay tribute to the Sunnyside Ocean Defenders? Those young students were so passionate, engaged and knowledgeable. They were interested in not just plastic but many different things in the world that they wanted to improve, including the protection of polar bears. I remember clearly that they also wanted to ban wild animals in circuses, which the Department is very keen to do. I thank...

Building Regulations and Fire Safety (17 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I welcome my right hon. Friend’s statement and the fact that he has gone a significant step further forward than the Hackitt review recommendations on the key issue of combustibility. In a letter to the Chair of the Select Committee, Dame Judith explains that there are two ways to work with the current guidance: either using products of limited combustibility in cladding systems or...

Grenfell Tower (16 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I sit on the Select Committee that took evidence from Dame Judith Hackitt. We had concerns about her interim findings, and we had correspondence with her following that session in which she admits, in relation to building regulations: “There is currently a choice between using products of limited combustibility or undergoing a full-system test”. She goes on to say that “the...

Grenfell Tower (16 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: The right hon. Gentleman mentions compelling landlords to carry out remedial work to blocks with inappropriate cladding on the outside, and I understand the imperative and rationale behind that, but where there is not a contractual obligation on the landlord to do that—where the building is occupied by long lease holders—by what mechanism would he force them to have that work...

Grenfell Tower (16 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: rose—

Grenfell Tower (16 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: indicated assent.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Despite clear evidence of potentially criminal wrongdoing, our regulators and law enforcement agencies seem unwilling or unable to take action against those at the highest level responsible for the business banking scandals at RBS, Lloyds and HBOS. Will the Prime Minister do everything that she can to make sure that those people are held to account regardless of their status, seniority or...

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill: Housing and Homes (15 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Lady said that house building had fallen to its lowest level since the 1920s, yet in 2008-09 new housing starts were 88,000 and last year they were 163,000. Where does she get her figures from?

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill: Housing and Homes (15 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: The right hon. Gentleman will be aware that last year’s figure of 217,000 additional homes is the second highest in the past 25 years. Completion levels have risen 30% and starts have risen 85% from their low points under Labour. He must welcome those increases in activity in the housing market.

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill: Housing and Homes (15 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: My right hon. Friend is making some excellent points. He referred to the requirement for local authorities to have up-to-date local plans. He might be aware that York, which adjoins my constituency, has not had a local plan since the 1950s, which has put added pressure on other local areas such as Ryedale and Hambleton. Will he commit to stepping in to write local plans for authorities that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Russia: Diplomatic Relations (15 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: What recent assessment he has made of the UK’s diplomatic relations with Russia.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Russia: Diplomatic Relations (15 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Despite the fact that oil and gas exports make up 70% of Russia’s international trade, they are not currently covered under the EU sanctions regime due to the high reliance of the EU on Russian gas exports. After our exit from the European Union, would that be a sensible extra measure for us to take that might assist with our diplomatic efforts?

Grenfell Tower Inquiry — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (14 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Bearing in mind the lack of confidence in the local authority, where reasonable concerns exist in the community, whether about the local authority, the inquiry or rehousing, is the Minister confident that clear processes and channels are in place for those concerns to be raised directly with the Minister and acted upon?
