Opposition Day — [5th Allotted Day]: Tax Credits (Working Families) (7 Jul 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Lady cites the Resolution Foundation report. Does she agree with the same foundation’s report which says tax credits have “a predictably negative impact on work incentives”?

Opposition Day — [5th Allotted Day]: Tax Credits (Working Families) (7 Jul 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does my hon. Friend agree with this information from the House of Commons Library that says that tax credit changes in the previous Parliament were about focusing support on those on lower incomes? The Institute for Fiscal Studies said that, in terms of net incomes, the average household was £900 a year better off at the end of the previous Parliament than it was at the start.

Opposition Day — [5th Allotted Day]: Tax Credits (Working Families) (7 Jul 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: I congratulate the hon. Member for Bradford West (Naz Shah) on an excellent maiden speech, on an excellent election victory, and on the many excellent curry establishments in her constituency, which I have visited on a number of occasions. Let me start by drawing the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. I have been an employer for more than two...

Opposition Day — [5th Allotted Day]: Tax Credits (Working Families) (7 Jul 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: Under the universal credit system there is transitional protection so no one is worse off, and I absolutely believe in that. If we increase the minimum wage by 5% a year, over 10 years it would reach the then current level of the living wage. This needs to be done sensitively—sensitively for business, as we do not want it to cost jobs. It therefore needs to be done progressively. I...

Bills Presented: Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (9 Jul 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does the Secretary of State agree that there are two sides to the welfare coin—the people who receive the benefit and the people who pay for the benefit? The burden of £30 billion a year in tax credits was too big a burden to carry.

Bill Presented — National Insurance Contributions (Rate Ceilings) Bill: Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (14 Jul 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does the hon. Lady welcome the 75% reduction in unemployment in York since 2010, and the 45% reduction in 2014?

Bill Presented — National Insurance Contributions (Rate Ceilings) Bill: Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (14 Jul 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does the hon. Lady agree with her leader when she said that she should accept the changes to welfare and tax credits contained within this Budget?

Contaminated Blood Products (9 Sep 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: In addition to a full, fair and final resolution to the issue, the victims also need clarity on access to drugs. Will the Minister clarify why NHS England has made access to drugs more complicated than it is in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland with the networks of hospitals? Why is that required?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (10 Sep 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: I welcome DEFRA’s focus on connectivity in the rural productivity plan. This week, Rural Action Yorkshire said it was nigh on impossible for a rural business to be in business without decent broadband and mobile phone coverage. The final 5% and the “not spots” will require innovation and investment. What comfort can the Secretary of State give to businesses trading in those areas?

[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — Rural Broadband (10 Sep 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: Thank you, Mr Betts, for giving me the opportunity to speak in the debate. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Tiverton and Honiton (Neil Parish) on securing it. One of our roles as parliamentarians must be to create a level playing field, so that businesses can compete wherever they are situated. I give credit to the Government and to the Minister, because we have seen huge...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (14 Sep 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am sure that Members on both sides of the House will welcome recent figures which show a 22% rise in the number of new home completions, but achieving the 200,000 homes per year that we need will require a revival of the small and medium-sized house builders whose number has been reduced by 75% over the last 30 years. What support can Ministers offer to ensure that that revival comes about?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Trade Union Bill (14 Sep 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: Why does the Minister think that since 2010 seven times as many strike days have been lost in the public sector as in the private sector, despite the fact that more people work in the private sector?

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Regional Growth (15 Sep 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: What steps he is taking to promote regional growth.

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Regional Growth (15 Sep 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: Regional growth in Thirsk and Malton depends largely on access to superfast broadband. We are delighted that 95% of premises will receive superfast broadband by 2017, but the final 5% percent is without doubt the biggest challenge. Many businesses cannot wait until 2020 to get access to superfast broadband. Will the Minister confirm that he will look at ways to open up the market to create...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Sep 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: Following the Prime Minister’s visit to Yorkshire last week, peace, love and harmony has broken out right across the county. Members on both sides of the House have expressed their support for a “Greater Yorkshire” bid, encompassing north, east and west Yorkshire and Hull. Will he agree to meet me and other Members to discuss the merits of the bid, and the central role we believe it can...

Bills Presented: Immigration Bill (13 Oct 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: I was very keen to speak in support of the Bill, because I feel it recognises the deep concern the public have over immigration and, most importantly, it sends the message both home and abroad that illegal migrants are not welcome in the UK. If they do come, they will have great difficulty in finding somewhere to live and great difficulty in finding somewhere to work. Despite those concerns,...

Perinatal Mental Illness (NHS Family Services): Cities and Local Government Devolution Bill [Lords] (14 Oct 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does the Secretary of State agree that any proposal for devolution needs to be ambitious and bold, both to realise the economic potential and to capture the public’s imagination? A good example might be the Greater Yorkshire devolution bid.

Perinatal Mental Illness (NHS Family Services): Cities and Local Government Devolution Bill [Lords] (14 Oct 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am delighted to speak in favour of this Bill. The devolution debate has reached fever pitch in Yorkshire, and much has happened over the summer recess, but I have never believed that the greatest opportunities for devolution should be restricted to the big cities. Everyone—city and county—must take maximum benefit from devolution. South Yorkshire has secured its own devolution...

Opposition Day — [7th Allotted Day]: Tax Credits (20 Oct 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: “We should measure welfare’s success by how many people leave welfare, not by how many are added”—so said Ronald Reagan. In 2010 nine out of 10 families in the UK were on welfare. We do not need more welfare; we need more jobs, and better jobs which will pay a national living wage of £9 by 2020, ahead of the estimated living wage at that time. We have record employment in the UK....
