Prime Minister’s Statement: European Union (Withdrawal) Acts (19 Oct 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: The right hon. Gentleman talks about workers’ rights. The EU entitlement for holiday pay is four weeks. In the UK, it is 5.6 weeks. If we wanted to reduce that entitlement and to reduce standards, why would we not have done that already?

Business of the House (17 Oct 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: May we have a debate on the new Business Banking Resolution Service, which is a method of compensation for small and medium-sized enterprises that have suffered historical mistreatment by their banks? The Chancellor stated in his letter of 19 January that the system should carefully consider all cases brought before it, yet research by the all-party parliamentary group on fair business...

International Trade: Topical Questions (17 Oct 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: Sylatech is a precision engineering business in Kirkbymoorside in my constituency, but it is suffering a significant business impact due to control delays on its export licence applications. Will my hon. Friend update the House with a timescale to resolve that problem?

Speaker’S Statement: Britain's Place in the World (15 Oct 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: To follow the right hon. and learned Gentleman’s logic, there are only two outcomes beyond 31 October: either we leave the EU, with or without a deal, or there will be an extension. After that point, will he now commit to voting for a general election if a motion were tabled on 1 November?

Britain’S Place in the World (15 Oct 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: The Minister talks about future opportunities for businesses. Rightly, this Parliament requires our businesses to observe very high standards of animal welfare, environmental regulations and workplace regulations. Will he make sure that future trade agreements do not undermine our competitiveness against imports from other jurisdictions that do not have to observe such high standards?

Us Tariffs: Scotch Whisky (7 Oct 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: As you know, Mr Speaker, not all whisky is Scotch. I happen to have with me a bottle of Filey Bay, Yorkshire’s first whisky. It was released on Saturday after the requisite three years and a day. It is from the Spirit of Yorkshire distillery in Hunmanby in my constituency. Will the Minister confirm that he will provide support for whisky producers wherever they are, whether from the great...

Withdrawal Agreement: Proposed Changes (7 Oct 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: In Michel Barnier’s speech in October last year, he said that a hard border in Northern Ireland needed to be avoided; that customs checks would be required, but they could happen using existing customs transit procedures; and that regulatory checks would need to increase, but they could continue to happen in the Irish sea. Does that not sound remarkably like the Prime Minister’s deal? Is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Financial Resilience (7 Oct 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: If people are paid on a four-week cycle, once a year they get paid twice in the same month, which disrupts the UC payment for two months. Will the Minister meet me to see what we can do to prevent these cash flow issues?

Social Care Funding — [Sir Charles Walker in the Chair] (1 Oct 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Social Care Funding — [Sir Charles Walker in the Chair] (1 Oct 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I appreciate the opportunity to talk about something other than Brexit, and to talk constructively, to have a proper debate on the facts, to look at each other’s positions and, I hope, to try to find a middle way. I think it was Lord Tebbit who said that politics was about shooting the crocodile nearest the boat. This crocodile is about to swallow the whole boat. There are three big,...

Social Care Funding — [Sir Charles Walker in the Chair] (1 Oct 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the right hon. Member give way?

Social Care Funding — [Sir Charles Walker in the Chair] (1 Oct 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am grateful to the right hon. Gentleman for giving way. I am also grateful for the opportunity to discuss this matter on a cross-party basis. He mentioned a cross-party consensus earlier. Is he aware of last year’s joint report by the Health and Social Care Committee and the Communities and Local Government Committee on the future funding of social care? That report came to a cross-party...

Deaths of Homeless People (1 Oct 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: Fundamentally, we will deal with this only by providing many more truly affordable homes of secure tenure. Does my hon. Friend agree that we should consider changing the rules that currently require us to get the best price for public land, and that really we should make that land available to provide many more ultra low-cost homes?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (1 Oct 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I welcome the introduction of the new business banking resolution service that will start to hear cases of historical problems later this year. In the previous Chancellor’s letter of 19 January, he stated that that scheme should carefully consider all cases that come before it. How is that possible when the research of the all-party parliamentary group on fair business banking determined...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: One of the precedents quoted by the Supreme Court yesterday was a 1965 ruling that a Government cannot deprive individuals or companies of their assets without fair compensation. What implications does my right hon. Friend think that might have for a future Labour party manifesto?

Thomas Cook (25 Sep 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does my right hon. Friend agree that we should always be cautious about bailing out private sector businesses, particularly ones that are £1.9 billion in debt and struggle to make money even in a good year? We should also look at our competitions policy and try to avoid businesses getting so big that when they fail, they have a widespread effect on UK consumers.

Hacker House (25 Sep 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I welcome my hon. Friend to his place. I also welcome the support he is providing to small and medium-sized enterprises in this area. Can he confirm that clear criteria are applied in the awarding of these grants and that grants are made on the basis of a business case and adherence to those criteria? Does he agree that Opposition Members should probably learn from the past and suspend making...

Early Parliamentary General Election (No. 2) (9 Sep 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am pleased to be called in this debate and to follow the right hon. Member for Knowsley (Sir George Howarth). I have lost count of the number of times in my travels through the beautiful constituency of Thirsk and Malton when I have been approached by people saying, “What on earth are you lot doing down there? Why can’t you simply sort it out together?” The reality is that there are...

Early Parliamentary General Election (No. 2) (9 Sep 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is very confusing. I, too, regret that we will not be here on Wednesday to complete the final election process for the Treasury Committee. Nevertheless, now is the perfect time for a general election. If Opposition Members are right and the public do not want deal or no deal, the public will vote in their favour. They will return a coalition Government or another Government who can take...

Suicide Risk Assessment Tools in the NHS — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Sep 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am sure that the work that the Minister has already done to raise the issue with trusts is very positive news for the family. On the basis that people do not do what is expected but what is inspected, it is good to hear that some processes are already in place in the CQC. Will new processes be added? Presumably checks were happening when the situation occurred, so we need something else to...
