The Economy (24 Oct 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: ...have stood by, our communities have stood up, but they should not have to; community action should be in addition to the state, not in place of it. Fair funding also means replacing EU funding post-Brexit. Regional development funding has been crucial in boosting less prosperous areas all over the UK. My constituency is one of those areas that has benefited. Last year, I set up the...

Uk Shared Prosperity Fund (5 Sep 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: I thank the hon. Member for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey (Drew Hendry) for securing this important debate. Over a year ago, I set up the all-party group on post-Brexit funding for nations, regions and local areas, with the aim of holding the Government to account on their promises regarding the introduction of a shared prosperity fund that would replace EU funding in full. I am...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill: Duties in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (4 Sep 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: I recognise my hon. Friend’s point, but at present I have not had a conversation with our Front Benchers on this topic. My party’s Brexit spokesperson, my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), made it clear in an interview on last weekend’s Marr show that Labour only withdrew from the talks due to the inability of the former Prime Minister...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill: Duties in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (4 Sep 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: ...of the inter-party talks. We know that that document exists, and we need to see it published so that we can give it the scrutiny that it requires. For any Member who supports either a deal-based Brexit or even a second referendum, supporting our amendments is the most sensible and pragmatic approach, and the way forward. Let us get this done. Let us rediscover the lost art of compromise....

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill: Duties in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (4 Sep 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: ...other Members across the Committee. Before I do, however, I want to briefly say that I will be voting for the Bill this evening. That is because I have always been clear that the worst possible Brexit outcome would be a catastrophic no-deal crash-out that severely damages the security and economy of our country and our communities. This is why an extension of any kind is far superior to...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill: Duties in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (4 Sep 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: ...It is a different kettle of fish from what went before. For those with short memories, the withdrawal agreement Bill was very different from the former Prime Minister’s initial so-called “blind Brexit”—which was rejected three times by this House—because it contained 10 major concessions that gave far more clarity on the UK-EU relationship. We were not prepared to give carte...

British Steel (24 Jul 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: The UK exports 2.6 million tonnes of steel to the European Union every year. It is estimated that a no-deal Brexit would add £70 million of additional administration costs and costs relating to border checks. Does the Secretary of State therefore agree that a no-deal Brexit represents an existential threat to the British steel industry, and will he be conveying that message loud and clear to...

UK Steel Industry (9 Jul 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: ...chair of the all-party group on steel and metal-related industries. He shows real leadership in this area. On the subject of the steel quotas, he rightly pointed out that, in the case of a no-deal Brexit, we potentially have the disastrous situation of UK steel being subject to EU dumping regulations. What steps should the Government take specifically to ensure that we are given those...

EU Structural Funds: Least Developed Regions — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (26 Jun 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: ...a consultation on the shape of the shared prosperity fund, which should have started in late 2018, but have still not had one? My colleagues and I on the all-party parliamentary group for post-Brexit funding for nations, regions and local areas are sensing that there will not be a consultation before the comprehensive spending review. Does he share my view that that is completely...

European Council (24 Jun 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: Colleagues on the Labour Benches voted against the Prime Minister’s initial attempts to get a deal through because it was essentially a blind Brexit, with very little detail on the future relationship. However, the withdrawal agreement Bill tabled just prior to the European elections was actually full of major concessions to Labour’s positions and of compromises—workers’ rights,...

Ford in Bridgend (10 Jun 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: ...seen investment in the automotive sector drop by 80% in the past three years. The fact is that this Government are like a driverless vehicle and have been for the past three years. Their botched Brexit and general incompetence have seen confidence drain away from the automotive sector. When will we see a proper industrial strategy that helps the sector move from diesel and petrol to electric?

Shared Prosperity Fund — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (14 May 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: ...that need it most, and to claw back powers that sit naturally with devolved Administrations and other local areas. Those deep-seated concerns led to the creation of the all-party group for post-Brexit funding for nations, regions and local areas, which I am truly proud to chair. Our wide-ranging review of 80 organisations across the UK heard clear and unanimous representations that the...

Wales: Regional Development Funding (7 May 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: The Minister’s speech showed that the Government are truly paralysed by Brexit. We could have a debate about that, but the fact is that that paralysis is having real-world consequences. What is the future of that key infrastructure project? What is the future of that vital skills project in our community? What is the future of that vital railway upgrade? We simply do not know. We do not...

Wales: Regional Development Funding (7 May 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: ...been possible without European funding and strong political leadership of a type we see consistently from the Welsh Government and our local councils, but too rarely from Westminster. That is why Brexit raises a number of concerns regarding the future of regional development funding.

Wales: Regional Development Funding (7 May 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: ..., works relatively well: EU funding is targeted at less prosperous areas and delivered by devolved Administrations who know the needs of their areas better than anyone else. Now, we can debate Brexit until the cows come home—I am sure that we would love to—but I am sure that we can all agree that it is crucial that Wales does not lose a single penny of the funding that we would have...

Wales: Regional Development Funding (7 May 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: One of the key recommendations we in the all-party parliamentary group for post-Brexit funding for nations, regions and local areas have made in our report on the future of the shared prosperity fund—apologies for the plug, Sir Graham—is that the devolution settlement must be respected. Of course, the Westminster Government, the Assembly in Cardiff Bay and local authorities need to work...

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (27 Mar 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: ...lines, which offered such a narrow interpretation of the referendum result. A 52% to 48% vote was certainly not an instruction for a disastrous no deal or for a hard, Canada-style, job-destroying Brexit. It was an instruction to move house, but to stay in the same neighbourhood. The European Free Trade Association/European economic area model offers just such a possibility. It respects the...

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (27 Mar 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: I am sorry, but Mr Speaker has said we have very little time, so I am afraid I will not be able to take any interventions. Today, Euroscepticism seems to mean setting off into the Brexit fantasy forest of unicorns and rainbows, yet in 2016 Euroscepticism meant simply being opposed to political integration, while cheerleading for the single market. That, in a nutshell, is what common market...

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (27 Mar 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: ...three different parties. That breadth of support is extraordinary and unique. I am not sure that any other option has that spread of remain and leave opinion—certainly not revocation, a no-deal Brexit or a confirmatory vote. We need to find a way that not just unites the House on a solution that will get us out of the constitutional and political crisis, but begins to reunite our deeply...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Job Creation (5 Mar 2019)

Stephen Kinnock: Thank you for setting the stage for me so well, Mr Speaker. I am proud to chair the all-party parliamentary group for post-Brexit funding for nations, regions and local areas. It is vital that we have a fair settlement for the regions that need it most as we transition from EU funding to post-Brexit funding. Will the Chancellor of the Exchequer or the Minister responsible meet the APPG to...
