Housing and Planning Bill: What is a starter home? (3 May 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: Opposition Members have made the point that starter homes will be built, rather than affordable homes to rent. That is, of course, true to some extent, because people want to buy homes and people on lower incomes have been excluded from the housing market for too long. We have been building an average of 50,000 affordable homes to rent for the last 20 years. Why have we not been building more...

Housing and Planning Bill: What is a starter home? (3 May 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am not aware of the figures to which the right hon. Gentleman has referred, but, according to the Council of Mortgage Lenders, the average house price for first-time buyers in Greater London is £250,000. In my area the average house price is more than £200,000, but we have some very nice villages in which the average is £300,000. First-time buyers will pay about £150,000, and will move...

Housing and Planning Bill: What is a starter home? (3 May 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I welcome the building of properties for all tenures, because lack of supply is at the heart of the big issues that affect the housing market. This policy is also popular with local residents. If there are to be new developments in their areas, they want to see properties that local people can afford. There is a feeling that people in affordable properties for rent may have no connection with...

Letting Agent Fees and Deposits: Private Rented Sector (3 May 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. My hon. Friend is quite right to raise this subject. There is clearly not a free market for tenants, who follow property rather than choose between letting agents because of fees, so it is an issue that we need to address. However, letting agents rely on these fees for income, and so that income...

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Milk Price (5 May 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: In north Yorkshire, in the last 15 years, we have lost 50% of our dairy farmers, and 90% of those still in business are losing money, despite generous taxpayer subsidies. Does the Minister agree that now is the time for the supermarkets to start paying British farmers a fair price for British milk?

Steel Industry — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (11 May 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for introducing this important debate. Will he concede that the difficulties in the steel industry started in 1994, when 35,000 people were employed in the industry? The number stabilised around 2010 and has been stable since. Would it not be more sensible to have a cross-party constructive discussion to solve these problems?

Debate on the Address: Transport and Local Infrastructure (19 May 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I wish to focus my remarks on neighbourhood planning and the effects on housing delivery, but first let me draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. Just before the Under-Secretary of State for Transport, my hon. Friend the Member for Harrogate and Knaresborough (Andrew Jones), leaves the Chamber, may I make a very quick pitch for the A64? I...

Debate on the Address: Transport and Local Infrastructure (19 May 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am very grateful. As on many occasions in the Select Committee, the hon. Gentleman and I are in full agreement. I now move on to another important issue in my community. According to almost every business person and key business organisations such as the Institute of Directors, the No. 1 business priority in the UK and for many business people in my community is access to digital...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Middle East: Press Freedom (24 May 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: Press freedoms are being withdrawn in Turkey. Will the Minister outline the Government’s current position on Turkey’s accession to the EU?

Steel Industry (26 May 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I welcome the Secretary of State’s efforts to save as many steel jobs as possible, and he obviously also has to look at the pension funds. Would any prospective change to pensions legislation include a ballot of scheme members so that they could give their approval?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Business Support (7 Jun 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I have had business and broadband events at Easingwold, in my constituency, and this Friday we have invited several providers, including fibre and satellite providers, as well as providers of point-to-point wireless, which, in our experience, is the best solution for those in the hardest-to-reach areas. Will the Chancellor consider extending the excellent satellite voucher scheme to...

Conveyancing (7 Jun 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this important debate. The last time a Government looked at gazumping was under Labour, which set out to tackle it, but actually tackled a completely different problem and introduced the ill-fated home information pack. Does he agree that any proposal to change legislation should involve the industry, including estate agents—I refer the House to my...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Extremism and Radicalisation (13 Jun 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: What progress the Government are making in tackling extremism and radicalisation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Extremism and Radicalisation (13 Jun 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am grateful to the Home Secretary for that response. Ofsted admitted to me in a letter that it failed properly to inspect the Zakaria Muslim Girls High School in Batley in October 2015, run by a conservative Muslim sect, because the inspector felt unable to speak to pupils or staff—apparently, the inspector was told that it was Eid, when it was not actually Eid—despite the fact that the...

EU Membership: Economic Benefits (15 Jun 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: My right hon. Friend has mentioned Switzerland quite often. Switzerland is part of the European economic area, but still locates its banking services in London so as to access the rest of the European Union through passporting agreements. Does he have a solution to that difficulty?

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Industry Innovation (28 Jun 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: A vital component of innovation in business is a superfast broadband connection. Would the Secretary of State consider extending the excellent satellite voucher scheme to allow the pooling of vouchers to enable the establishment of community schemes such as fixed-point wireless?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Jun 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: Having been members of the single market for more than four decades, many businesses have deeply embedded supply chains and customer relationships throughout the European Union. Does the Prime Minister agree that any future deal with the EU must include access to the single market?

Uk Economy (29 Jun 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does the Chancellor agree that it is about not just new trade deals but the supply chains that he mentioned earlier and building those customer relationships over many decades, as we have with the European Union? We simply cannot take our trade from Europe one day and move it to the US or China the next.

Uk Economy (29 Jun 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Birmingham, Hodge Hill (Liam Byrne), who made some fine points. I particularly liked the phrase he coined about moving from free movement to fair movement. There is a time and a place to take a risk. I started my business in 1992. Many in the House will remember that year and, in particular, 16 September 1992. Unemployment was at 3...

Uk Economy (29 Jun 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. A good example are the Swiss banks. Despite Switzerland’s being part of the European economic area, it cannot trade directly with the EU, so it has to base subsidiaries within the EU. Happily, firms such as Credit Suisse and UBS put them in London, as do US banks such as Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan and the like. That is why the head of TheCityUK said that...
