Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Planning Permission (28 Nov 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I tend to spend more time here these days, Mr Speaker. Does the Secretary of State agree that if we are to create more opportunities for small and medium-sized house builders, we need to allocate more small sites in local plans?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (29 Nov 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: According to the Library, infrastructure spending per head is 2.5 times greater in London and the south-east than in the regions. Does the Chancellor agree that now is the time for a fairer distribution of investment spending across the UK?

Corporate Governance (29 Nov 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: May I first declare my interest as a non-executive chair of a listed public company before I offer warm support for these proposals? I also echo the comments of my hon. Friend the Member for South Suffolk (James Cartlidge) that employee share ownership schemes have had a transformative effect both in our workplace and on our business success. I ask the Secretary of State to look even closer...

Backbench Business: UK Fishing Industry (1 Dec 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I congratulate the hon. Member for Great Grimsby (Melanie Onn) on securing the debate. I shall follow the lead of my hon. Friend the Member for Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport (Oliver Colvile) in informing the House that I have an unpaid adviser, Mr John Ashworth, who is sitting in the Gallery today. He has supplied me with information on historical fishing rights, which will be the key...

Kevin Hollinrake: What steps the Government are taking to help relatives of missing persons manage financial and other affairs on their behalf.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Missing Persons (6 Dec 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I hope to introduce a ten-minute rule Bill on guardianship that would help relatives and friends to manage the affairs of missing people. In memory of Claudia Lawrence, my constituents’ daughter who went missing seven long years ago, will the Government offer that Bill their full support? Will they also be willing to honour her memory by referring to it, whenever possible, as Claudia’s Bill?

International Trade: World Trade Organisation (15 Dec 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: The UK has high standards in the workplace and for its products and animal welfare. Does the Secretary of State agree that a free trade deal with zero tariffs with countries that have much lower standards could have a significant commercial disadvantage for many of our companies?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Good and Outstanding Schools: Places (19 Dec 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: Easingwold school in my constituency—I must declare an interest as two of my children attend this school, but so do 1,000 other children—has been placed in special measures and will now, of course, become an academy, which I support. The choice of academy has been announced and subsequently retracted, pending surveys of the school. Clearly, either the process is flawed or the way that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Antimicrobial Resistance (20 Dec 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: How the Government plan to show global leadership in tackling antimicrobial resistance.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Antimicrobial Resistance (20 Dec 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: One of the 10 key recommendations of the O’Neill review was to improve the data and surveillance underlying antimicrobial resistance. What plans does the Minister have to routinely test all NHS patients for antibiotic resistance?

Guardianship (Missing Persons) (11 Jan 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a bill to make provision about the property and affairs of missing persons; and for connected purposes. Sooner or later, all parents come to a certain realisation: our children are gradually slipping away from us—first crawling, then toddling, then running. The gentle, guiding hand is no longer needed as, with great delight, they discover the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Neighbourhood Plans (16 Jan 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: I very much welcome the increase in housing starts, the number of which has doubled since the first quarter of 2009. To get to the level we need, we need a resurgence of small and medium-sized house builders. Does the Minister agree that we need local authorities and local communities to allocate more small sites in their local plans and neighbourhood plans?

Leaving the Eu: the Rural Economy (17 Jan 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: Mine is a truly bucolic rural constituency, with quaint market towns, the beautifully old-fashioned seaside town of Filey and the stunning north Yorkshire moors. I believe it is the most beautiful constituency in the land—I would say so—but those magnificent landscapes conceal a vibrant economy. There is farming, of course, but also fantastic foods, which are on display every year at the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (19 Jan 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the Secretary of State agree to visit the “Slowing the Flow” project in Pickering? It is a natural flood alleviation scheme part-funded by DEFRA, which saves the taxpayer about £15 million compared with a similar, traditional scheme. Will she meet the local flood authority and the Yorkshire dales partnership to see what has been done and what could be done with some of the £15...

Local Government Finance Bill (23 Jan 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend talks about protecting local authorities from changes. I welcome his commitment to a fairer funding formula, but is he aware that nine of the 10 authorities with the highest spending power in the country are in London, yet nine of the 10 lowest council tax authorities are also in London? Does he agree that a fairer funding formula needs to take into account the cost drivers...

Local Government Finance Bill (23 Jan 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Lady blames the Government for the funding plight in her local authority area, but the spending power of all of north Lincolnshire is £711 per head, whereas in the top-10 local authority areas in London it is £1,171 per head. Is it not the system that is at fault and the way money is distributed, rather than the Government? It is distributed according not to need but to what has...

Local Government Finance Bill (23 Jan 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Torbay (Kevin Foster), who speaks with much knowledge on this subject. The business rates retention provisions in the Bill clearly have huge potential for our local authorities, which will be able to focus on economic growth in their area, and to grow their rates base and therefore their income. However, this is an incentive around...

Local Government Finance Bill (23 Jan 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend makes a strong point about simplifying the system, which I was about to address. There cannot be 159 different indicators. We know that that does not work. Leicestershire has suggested nine simple indicators, including children’s services, adult social care, highways, fire, area costs, sparsity and density. That is a simple formula that people can understand and penetrate,...

Local Government Finance Bill (23 Jan 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman makes a good point about looking at this again as a blank canvas. Does he therefore accept that if that new funding formula meant that a local authority was worse off based on such objective need, he would support legislating on that basis?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Jan 2017)

Kevin Hollinrake: Historic per capita spending in our regions, including Yorkshire, when compared with London is up to 40% lower for our local authorities, up to 50% lower for our schools and up to 60% lower for our transport projects. Does the Prime Minister agree that, if we want to build a country that works for everyone, we need a fair funding deal that works for everyone?
