Subsidy Control Bill: New Clause 1 - Exemption: agriculture (13 Dec 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does the hon. Lady not agree that the problem with amendment 16—the net zero amendment —is judging what is consistent with the net zero commitments? I have a Westminster Hall debate tomorrow —at 4 o’clock if anybody has nothing better to do and wants to tune in. On greenwashing, for example, it is incredibly difficult to ascertain what complies with net zero when there is so much...

Post Office Historical Shortfall Scheme (14 Dec 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for securing the debate. What he says is absolutely right, and the scheme almost entirely mirrors what we did with Lloyds bank. We asked the bank to mark its own homework in opening a compensation scheme, which proved to be a complete travesty. It has to be completely redone, at a cost of hundreds of millions of pounds to Lloyds, and it has obviously caused...

Post Office Historical Shortfall Scheme (14 Dec 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: The Minister makes a fair point, but so does the right hon. Member for North Durham (Mr Jones). The scheme excludes those who took part in the group litigation. That is entirely unfair and unjust. Lee Castleton, who is not one of my constituents but somebody I have tried to help through a third party, got £28,000 in compensation but he lost more than £400,000. That is simply unfair and...

Post Office Historical Shortfall Scheme (14 Dec 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: If the estimate is £300 million and there are 2,300 applications, that is £130,000 each. Lee Castleton got £28,000. The constituent of the right hon. Member for North Durham (Mr Jones) got £20,000. That just cannot be right.

Greenwashing in Finance — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (14 Dec 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I beg to move, That this House has considered tackling greenwashing in finance. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Edward. I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Kensington (Felicity Buchan), who has passed responsibility for this debate to me as she is unable to attend. Subject to the House’s confirmation this evening, I am happy to say that I will replace her...

Transport: East-west Rail Connections: North England (16 Dec 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: What steps he is taking to help improve east-west rail connections in the north of England.

Transport: East-west Rail Connections: North England (16 Dec 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I thank my hon. Friend for that answer. The integrated rail plan contains many good things, but a significant improvement would be an improved direct connection between Bradford and Manchester. There are ways to do it without significantly increasing the overall £96 billion budget. Will my hon. Friend meet me to discuss the opportunities?

Transport: Topical Questions (16 Dec 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Transport: Topical Questions (16 Dec 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: The dualling of the A64 was first mooted in The Yorkshire Post in 1905, since when it has been promised and cancelled several times, despite being much needed. Its delivery would massively reduce the journey time between York, Malton, Pickering, Scarborough and Filey. Will my right hon. Friend update the House on plans to dual the A64?

Covid-19: Government Support for Business (16 Dec 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I welcome the fact that the Minister and the Chancellor are meeting those in the hospitality sector this afternoon. There is no doubt that they are suffering because of some of the mixed messages we have heard in the past few days. The obvious places to help them would be by looking at VAT again, potentially reducing it back to the 5% rate until the end of March, and at the recovery loan...

Backbench Business: Second Homes and Holiday Lets: Rural Communities — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (6 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on having secured this important debate. He has mentioned that his local authority has brought forward some affordable housing—I cannot remember the number he said—but that it was all rented. The Government have created a new scheme, the first homes scheme, to allow discounted properties to be purchased as affordable homes. Is the hon. Gentleman pursuing...

Backbench Business: Second Homes and Holiday Lets: Rural Communities — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (6 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Sharma, and I thank the hon. Member for Westmorland and Lonsdale (Tim Farron) for having secured this important debate. It was good to hear him speak in favour of free markets: that is not something we always hear from his party, so it was very welcome. However, I agree with him that we are in a broken market. I must draw the House’s...

Defence: UK Defence Jobs (10 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: My right hon. Friend’s Department has announced that the Alanbrooke barracks in my constituency, which proudly hosts the 4th Regiment Royal Artillery, will close in 2031. Can my right hon. Friend identify any possible other military uses for that base? Alternatively, will he work urgently with the local authority to ensure that the obvious redevelopment opportunities are taken up as quickly...

Building Safety (10 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. I welcome my right hon. Friend’s statement, which ticks all the boxes needed to solve this crisis, not least pointing the finger at construction product manufacturers. There is no doubt they have gamed the system to get some of their products approved inappropriately, but that gaming was...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (11 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: Regional mutual banks are key to the success of small and medium-sized enterprises in the world’s most productive economies, including Germany and the USA. Will my right hon. Friend meet me to discuss that important opportunity?

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Reducing Costs for Businesses (11 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Reducing Costs for Businesses (11 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: Just to make a point of detail about the context, the hon. Gentleman talks about runaway inflation in the UK, but does he accept that these are international problems? The inflation rate in Germany is actually higher than in the UK at 5.3%, and the inflation rate in the US is 6.8%, which again is much higher than in the UK. Shall we have some facts in this debate, rather than some of the...

Reducing Costs for Businesses (11 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: The only detail that we seem to know about in Labour’s plans to reform business rates is a sixfold increase in the digital services tax. One thing we know about the digital services tax is that Amazon, for example, passes it straight on to consumers, which is exactly what it did. The other thing we know is that it does not apply to Amazon’s direct sales, so those plans will hit small...
