Tackling Fraud and Preventing Government Waste (1 Feb 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Tackling Fraud and Preventing Government Waste (1 Feb 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: Much has been made of Lord Agnew’s resignation and we should take his resignation points very seriously. We should also acknowledge that he described the bounce back loan scheme, in his resignation piece to the Financial Times, as an “important and successful intervention”. Is not his real point that we need to make sure that checks and balances have been followed by all banks who were...

Tackling Fraud and Preventing Government Waste (1 Feb 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: As a point of correction, the hon. Lady says that the Chancellor said that only 13 cases were being looked into by the National Crime Agency, but what he said was that 13 people have been arrested. Many more cases have been looked into. I think the hon. Lady is in danger of missing the point. Lord Agnew actually said that the Government did a very good job of rolling out the schemes; his...

Treasury: Cost of Living (1 Feb 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: The most effective sanctions that we could impose on Russia would be to block Russian banks’ access to UK and international markets. Will my right hon. Friend consider that and consider cushioning the inevitable blow to our banks, businesses and households from the financial impacts, including to the cost of living?

Economic Crime: Planned Government Bill (26 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to make a statement on the Government’s plans to bring forward an economic crime Bill.

Economic Crime: Planned Government Bill (26 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am grateful to the Minister for his response. As he knows, economic crime costs the people of this country £100 billion per annum, according to the National Crime Agency. The Government have committed themselves repeatedly to legislation to give our agencies the tools that they need to tackle this problem, and it was therefore concerning to hear from my noble Friend Lord Agnew—who...

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Increasing Home Ownership (24 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: What steps his Department is taking to increase home ownership.

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Increasing Home Ownership (24 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: First Homes is an excellent initiative that could deliver homes in my constituency for local first-time buyers at even below half price. Will the Minister accelerate their delivery through section 106 agreements, pilot their delivery on public sector land in my constituency, and rename the policy from First Homes to “Half-Price Homes”, because then people would understand it much more clearly?

Coronavirus Grant Schemes: Fraud (18 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: I say to the Opposition that it is the easiest job in the world to stand on the sidelines and criticise, but what would they have done? Would they have waited and left businesses in peril? Would they have done that in search of the perfect? Some £407 billion has gone to businesses, the vast majority of which went to the right places. Of course there will be lessons to learn, but if the same...

Draft Online Safety Bill Report (13 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Draft Online Safety Bill Report (13 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: I will be very brief. My hon. Friend has talked about cross-party working, and there is clearly cross-party consensus that paid-for advertising should be included in the scope of the Bill. Is that something that he intends to do?

Draft Online Safety Bill Report (13 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to be called in this important debate, Madam Deputy Speaker. I wish to talk about online fraud; in my capacity as chair of the all-party group on fair business banking and as a member of the Treasury Committee, I think that is a matter of extreme importance. I congratulate the Joint Committee on its work, and my hon. Friend the Member for Folkestone and Hythe (Damian...

Draft Online Safety Bill Report (13 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: I thank my hon. Friend for his work on this important issue. Does he agree, as referred to in the report, that platforms must be required to proactively seek out that content and ensure it is changed, and if not, remove it, rather than all removals being prompted by users?

Reducing Costs for Businesses (11 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: As the hon. Member for Bradford West (Naz Shah) knows, I entirely agree with her about the need for an independent Northern Powerhouse Rail that goes through Bradford from Leeds to Manchester. However, I do not agree at all with the shadow Minister, the hon. Member for Stalybridge and Hyde (Jonathan Reynolds). In his motion, he talks about “increasing energy costs, high inflation, low...

Reducing Costs for Businesses (11 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: I agree with the hon. Gentleman on long-term productivity, but that is not what his motion says. It says “low growth”, which is absolutely inaccurate. Let us have some facts in this debate. The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right on energy costs, and I think that we need to intervene. The Government are not doing nothing. They are consulting now on the right kind of measures—whether it...

Reducing Costs for Businesses (11 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: If I were running a business in Scotland, I would want to know what the hon. Member is going to do in the future, because annual economic growth in Scotland between 2013 and 2019—pre-pandemic —was 1.2%, versus the rest of the UK’s 2%. That is bad for business. What is he going to do in Scotland to grow the economy more rapidly, even to the rate of the rest of the United Kingdom?

Reducing Costs for Businesses (11 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: The only detail that we seem to know about in Labour’s plans to reform business rates is a sixfold increase in the digital services tax. One thing we know about the digital services tax is that Amazon, for example, passes it straight on to consumers, which is exactly what it did. The other thing we know is that it does not apply to Amazon’s direct sales, so those plans will hit small...
