Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Climate Change and Flooding (15 Dec 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am interested in the right hon. Gentleman’s specific policies to tackle CO2 emissions. In the US, fracking is credited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change as being the principal reason for the reduction in greenhouse gases. Does he support shale gas exploration in the UK?

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Climate Change and Flooding (15 Dec 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend the Member for Monmouth (David T. C. Davies) asked for evidence for his constituents. A quick check on Google shows that the NASA site states that the five-year average for global temperatures is rising by 0.75% a year, and that the 10 warmest years on record have all occurred since 2000. That may help.

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Climate Change and Flooding (15 Dec 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: I do not know Mr Skea, but I do know of NASA. And I have another minute on the back of that intervention, which I appreciate. There has been a fourfold increase in extreme weather events since the turn of the 19th century, and we have all seen the terrible scenes affecting homes, businesses and farmers and the devastation as the water recedes. In my constituency, the town of Pickering has...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Climate Change and Flooding (15 Dec 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: I absolutely agree. We need a new scheme. Owing to the demographic of our housing stock, we have some of the least energy-efficient housing stock in Europe. We must also be pragmatic. Only 7% of our energy comes from renewables today, and fossil fuels will be part of the mix for the foreseeable future. There is an MI5 maxim that we are only four meals away from anarchy. We are probably only...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Climate Change and Flooding (15 Dec 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: I will come to that point shortly. Let us look at the situation in the US, which is the second biggest emitter of carbon dioxide. According to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the US has made great progress on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and an important reason for that is its production of shale gas. Environmental campaigners such as Stephen Tindale of...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Housing (15 Dec 2015)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is as true today as it was 30 years ago that more than 80% of people aspire to buy their own home. On the other side of the equation, house builders make their living by providing as many homes as possible. There is no lack of will to build, or a lack of desire to buy. The problems are due to the supply-side issues in the marketplace. Supply is constrained by a planning process that is not...

Energy and Climate Change: Shale Gas Drilling (7 Jan 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: What steps she is taking to prevent shale gas drilling at the surface in areas of the greatest environmental value.

Energy and Climate Change: Shale Gas Drilling (7 Jan 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I very much welcome the Minister’s comments. The Task Force on Shale Gas has called for a single regulator and increased levels of independent monitoring. Does the Minister agree that this would improve public confidence and provide further protection, particularly for our most sensitive areas?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (11 Jan 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: Given that 1.5 million migrants entered the European Union in 2015 and a similar number will do so in 2016, will the Home Secretary confirm that all European leaders are aware of the impact on fellow EU nations and, in particular, on the United Kingdom, which is already experiencing unsustainable levels of migration?

Local Government Funding: Rural Areas (11 Jan 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to follow the beautifully presented case made by my hon. Friend the Member for South East Cornwall (Mrs Murray). I am a former businessman, and fairness was a guiding principle of my business career. I think it will be the most commonly used word in this evening’s debate. Like many of my colleagues, I stood on a platform of getting a fairer deal for our rural areas. They...

Local Government Funding: Rural Areas (11 Jan 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I absolutely agree. I hope that this campaign will be as successful as my hon. Friend’s campaign for fair funding for rural schools. This debate is not about the size of the cake. Local authorities need to share the burden of balancing the books. Governments of both colours have run deficits for 28 of the past 34 years. We are still running a deficit this year of about £75 billion. We need...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: School Places: Thirsk and Malton (25 Jan 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: What plans the Government have to meet demand for school places in Thirsk and Malton.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: School Places: Thirsk and Malton (25 Jan 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: Across North Yorkshire we are seeing a 10% increase in the demand for primary school places, and many of my constituents are concerned that we provide the infrastructure to meet rising populations and the increased numbers of houses being built. Will the Minister confirm that the capital funding will be provided to meet that ongoing demand for new places?

[Mr George Howarth in the Chair] — Onshore Oil and Gas (26 Jan 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I beg to move, That this House has considered the potential role of UK manufacturing in development of onshore oil and gas. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. Shale gas exploration is a key issue in my constituency. Exploration licences have been granted to five operators in Thirsk and Malton, covering the vast majority of my patch. I receive dozens of letters and...

[Mr George Howarth in the Chair] — Onshore Oil and Gas (26 Jan 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. That is a key issue, which I will come to later on in my speech. The environmental reasons for moving from coal to gas are compelling. Global carbon dioxide emissions will be found to have declined in 2015, principally owing to reduced coal use in China and the US, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and the US Environmental...

[Mr George Howarth in the Chair] — Onshore Oil and Gas (26 Jan 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I had a similar experience at a public meeting in my constituency. All the regulators were on a panel there, and it was clear that some questions and answers fell between the cracks. Does my hon. Friend accept that a single regulator with overall responsibility for the industry would improve public confidence?

[Mr George Howarth in the Chair] — Onshore Oil and Gas (26 Jan 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: During the moratorium, what evidence has been collated about the safety or otherwise of shale gas?

[Mr George Howarth in the Chair] — Onshore Oil and Gas (26 Jan 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: The deprecation that I expressed was more about providing short-term subsidies that are then withdrawn, rather than thinking long term. The interventions that I suggest are long-term interventions that would control and regulate the industry.

[Mr George Howarth in the Chair] — Onshore Oil and Gas (26 Jan 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: Once again, it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. I apologise for my initial lack of knowledge about protocol. I am grateful to Government and Opposition Members for the constructive way in which the debate has been dealt with. I am also grateful to the Minister. I quite understand that onshore oil and gas is not his normal brief, but skills and industry is, and we...

William Mead: 111 Helpline (26 Jan 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: This is a tragic case, and our thoughts today are with the Mead family. Reluctance to prescribe antibiotics due to the dangers of antimicrobial resistance played a key part in this tragedy. Does the Secretary of State agree that this is a significant global problem, and we need to commit significant investment to it?
