Education: Skills that Businesses Need: Equipping Students (6 Sep 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I thank the Minister for that answer. The Careers & Enterprise Company has excellent potential to connect employers with schools but few businesses, large and small, I speak to in Thirsk and Malton have engaged with it and some have not even heard of it. What more can we do to raise awareness of it to make sure young people leave school with the skills that businesses need?

Afghanistan (18 Aug 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: The right hon. Gentleman talks about the statement on 8 July. Does he accept that this Government’s decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan was not opposed in that debate by the Scottish National party or the Opposition? Indeed, it was welcomed by the shadow Foreign Secretary. Is it not right to put that on record? This was effectively a decision of the majority of the House.

Newport Wafer Fab Sale (15 Jul 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend talks about mutual respect between ourselves and the Chinese people, which I believe is correct, but the Chinese Government do not respect rules-based order, particularly in enterprise and commerce. This semiconductor plant is critical to our UK economy, particularly at a time of rising demand for semiconductors, and the 450 jobs at Duffryn are also very important. Does she...

Health and Care Bill (14 Jul 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: The right hon. Gentleman talks about solutions to social care. Will he come on to his own solutions to social care? Will they potentially include the recommendations of the Select Committees about that German-style social care premium—recommendations made by members of his own party who were elected by his party to serve on those Committees? Is that something that he is now willing to...

Health and Care Bill (14 Jul 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: My right hon. Friend has set out his plans to introduce a plan for social care by the end of the year, and I know that he is looking for a cross-party solution. In a joint inquiry by two Select Committees—the Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee and the Health and Social Care Committee—one of the recommendations was a system with a German-style social care premium. Would...

Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Jul 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: The Serious Fraud Office achieved a rare success in Southwark Crown court in April with the successful prosecution of GPT Special Project Management Ltd, which resulted in £28 million of penalties for corruption. The key whistleblower in this case was my constituent Ian Foxley, without whom the prosecution would never have happened, yet he has been totally hung out to dry by the Serious...

Attorney General: Serious Fraud Office: Economic Crime (1 Jul 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: What recent assessment he has made of the Serious Fraud Office’s effectiveness in prosecuting serious economic crime.

Attorney General: Serious Fraud Office: Economic Crime (1 Jul 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I thank my right hon. and learned Friend for her answer. The GPT case she refers to was one of the SFO’s rare successes in court in a proven case of corruption. I think there were £28 million of penalties, although it may be £30 million, as she said, including costs. My constituent, Ian Foxley, was a key whistleblower in that case, but he has been completely hung out to dry by the SFO,...

Financial Conduct Authority and Blackmore Bond plc (30 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: The Minister is doing a lot to close down opportunities for these scams, but there is a further way that we could take this forward, which we have discussed. Google has today said that it will ensure that all firms advertising on its platform are regulated firms. We could require that of all platforms and all firms that provide an internet channel, for example through the online harms Bill,...

Financial Conduct Authority and Blackmore Bond plc (30 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman mentions the regulatory framework, and I am sure that he will go on to say whether he feels there were also shortcomings from the regulator itself in this case. The FCA’s attention was drawn to the boiler-room tactics of Blackmore Bond and the fact that it was pretty much a Ponzi scheme back in March 2017, yet three years later the company was still operating. It is...

Trans-Pennine Railway (30 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I, too, am eagerly awaiting the integrated railway plan. The Minister said it will be published “soon”, but could he be more specific?

Trans-Pennine Railway (30 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I thank the hon. Member for Bradford South (Judith Cummins) for leading this important debate. She set the scene very well. I, too, was concerned when I read newspaper reports about the potential downgrade—that is, an upgrade of the trans-Pennine route as it exists rather than a new route. The hon. Lady quoted part of the newspaper interview with the Prime Minister; he also said that there...

International Travel (29 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: The Opposition do not seem to be able to name any countries or destinations they want to add to the green list, but may I suggest a couple—the Greek islands and the Canaries? Both have very low infection rates, they are very popular destinations for UK travellers, and they seem, potentially, to qualify under other criteria. When might they be added to the green list, and will they stay...

Justice: Medomsley Detention Centre (29 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: What steps his Department is taking to help ensure that appropriate compensation is disbursed to Medomsley Detention Centre victims.

Justice: Medomsley Detention Centre (29 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am grateful for that answer. The compensation scheme covers physical, not sexual abuse. My constituent suffered terrible, much more serious abuse. He was drugged and raped, which has had a profound effect on his health for over 40 years—both his physical and his mental health—and that of his family. Will my hon. Friend agree to meet me, my constituent and the chair of the all-party...

Rating (Coronavirus) and Directors Disqualification (Dissolved Companies) Bill (28 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Rarely is a property built to be a nightclub. It is a property, which is valued on the basis of its rental value, which leads to the rateable value. That business may change hands and go from being a nightclub to a different kind of business. How could we have a rates system dependent on the business type that occupy premises? That is not how the business rates system works.

Rating (Coronavirus) and Directors Disqualification (Dissolved Companies) Bill (28 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman has raised a very interesting case. I am sure he will be aware that the Financial Conduct Authority was warned on numerous occasions about the activities of Blackmore Bond but apparently did nothing about it until it was far too late.

Rating (Coronavirus) and Directors Disqualification (Dissolved Companies) Bill (28 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to be called so early in a debate, Madam Deputy Speaker; I am not used to that happening frequently. I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. I have been involved in business rates as a businessperson for a long time, and I greatly sympathise with businesses that have been hit by coronavirus. We know there is a...

Rating (Coronavirus) and Directors Disqualification (Dissolved Companies) Bill (28 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I support the measures that my hon. Friend is taking in the Bill. He mentioned fraud. I take it that the measures he is talking about would not negate the potential for prosecution of fraud where it was demonstrated that a company director had defrauded the taxpayer by means, for example, of a bounce back loan.

Transport: Williams-Shapps Plan for Rail (24 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: What steps his Department is taking to implement the policies set out in the Williams-Shapps plan for rail.
