Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day] — Housing Benefit and Supported Housing (27 Jan 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: Given that the right hon. Gentleman has not seen the evidence, why is he holding the debate now?

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day] — Housing Benefit and Supported Housing (27 Jan 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Birmingham, Selly Oak (Steve McCabe). These measures are about striking a fair deal: a fair deal for those in accommodation, a fair deal for those who provide accommodation and a fair deal for the taxpayer. There needs to be a balance between the rent increases in the social housing sector and those in the private rented sector. Over the past 10...

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day] — Housing Benefit and Supported Housing (27 Jan 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: There is no doubt that we need to house vulnerable people in supported and specialist accommodation, and that our homes, hostels, refuges and sheltered housing need such support. They constitute a much more labour-intensive part of the market, involving personal care, supervision and maintenance.

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day] — Housing Benefit and Supported Housing (27 Jan 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I accept the hon. Lady’s point. We need to ensure that we protect our most vulnerable people, and that is what I believe we will do. Many of the providers of supported housing and specialist accommodation are part of much larger organisations which are able to blend reductions across their estates, but we want to ensure that specialist providers continue to supply accommodation. This policy...

Arms Sales to Saudi Arabia (28 Jan 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the Minister confirm the presence and strength of militant organisations such as al-Qaeda and Daesh in Yemen?

UK-EU Renegotiation (3 Feb 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: In his statement, the Prime Minister outlines the work we have done to tackle migration from outside the EU. What conversations has he had with other European leaders about what they are doing to tackle the migrant crisis? Many of my constituents are very worried about the future implications of migration, particularly given that we are seeing such unsustainable levels of people coming into...

Tax Avoidance and Multinational Companies (3 Feb 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: First, let me draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. A company in which I have an investment is, in a very small way, a competitor of Google’s. If it ever makes a profit, it will always pay—at least while I am involved—the correct rate of corporation tax, as most companies do. All of us on the Conservative Benches believe that that is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Flood Defence Programme (4 Feb 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: Flood Re insurance will help many householders in Thirsk and Malton affected by recent floods, but it does not cover small businesses or leasehold properties with more than three units. In one such development in my constituency at Topcliffe Mill, residents of a two-bedroom flat now face a premium of £4,000 a year and an excess of £40,000. Will Ministers agree to meet me and representatives...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (4 Feb 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: Cross-compliance rules prevent hedge cutting in August, yet the only bird that seems to be nesting at that time is the very prolific wood pigeon. The rules are preventing farmers from doing vital work, as they are unable to get on to that land during August. Will Ministers agree to look at this to see what can be done to change these rules?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Antimicrobial Resistance (9 Feb 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: What progress his Department has made on making the UK a world leader in tackling antimicrobial resistance.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Antimicrobial Resistance (9 Feb 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest global challenges for public health, making routine operations impossible within 10 or 15 years unless action is taken. I welcome the Government’s action on this. Antibiotic Research UK is the world’s first charitable organisation, set up in my constituency, to tackle this issue. Will the Minister look at how we might fund such organisations in...

Police Grant Report (England and Wales): Local Government Finance (England) (10 Feb 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Police Grant Report (England and Wales): Local Government Finance (England) (10 Feb 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I warmly welcome this statement today from the Secretary of State. My local authority, North Yorkshire County Council, will receive £15 million in transitional funding over the next two years, and my district authorities will receive £1.4 million. We hear cries of “Tory plot” from the Opposition, but my local authority was facing a 37% reduction in its funding, compared with an average...

Police Grant Report (England and Wales): Local Government Finance (England) (10 Feb 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I do welcome that news. This funding is targeted at the locations with the biggest falls. Opposition Members need to understand the profound feeling of unfairness that exists in my community, not just about funding for rural services but about the way in which our schools and healthcare are funded. How would they explain to an elderly constituent of mine in need of adult social care why she...

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — Litter and Fly-tipping: England (25 Feb 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I congratulate the Chair of the Select Committee on introducing this important debate. He mentions fixed-penalty notices, which I understand can potentially lead to criminal convictions if further steps are taken. Some local authorities might be reluctant to take those steps on the basis that they might criminalise young people. Should we perhaps consider making fixed-penalty notices a civil...

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — Litter and Fly-tipping: England (25 Feb 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: Would that also apply to chewing gum manufacturers?

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — Litter and Fly-tipping: England (25 Feb 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman is speaking about tobacco companies, and I mentioned chewing gum, but my hon. Friend the Member for Banbury (Victoria Prentis) just reminded me of companies such as McDonald’s. Our highways are often a litter-strewn disgrace, and while there are duties under section 89 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 to keep those highways clean, there is conflict between local...

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — Litter and Fly-tipping: England (25 Feb 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: That far back?

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — Litter and Fly-tipping: England (25 Feb 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will my hon. Friend give way on that point?

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — Litter and Fly-tipping: England (25 Feb 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend talks about McDonald’s being a shining example, but its products have a huge amount of packaging. If it was somehow forced or encouraged to reduce packaging, that might also help to provide a solution to the problem.
