Draft Online Safety Bill Report (13 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Draft Online Safety Bill Report (13 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: I will be very brief. My hon. Friend has talked about cross-party working, and there is clearly cross-party consensus that paid-for advertising should be included in the scope of the Bill. Is that something that he intends to do?

Draft Online Safety Bill Report (13 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to be called in this important debate, Madam Deputy Speaker. I wish to talk about online fraud; in my capacity as chair of the all-party group on fair business banking and as a member of the Treasury Committee, I think that is a matter of extreme importance. I congratulate the Joint Committee on its work, and my hon. Friend the Member for Folkestone and Hythe (Damian...

Draft Online Safety Bill Report (13 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: I thank my hon. Friend for his work on this important issue. Does he agree, as referred to in the report, that platforms must be required to proactively seek out that content and ensure it is changed, and if not, remove it, rather than all removals being prompted by users?

Reducing Costs for Businesses (11 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: As the hon. Member for Bradford West (Naz Shah) knows, I entirely agree with her about the need for an independent Northern Powerhouse Rail that goes through Bradford from Leeds to Manchester. However, I do not agree at all with the shadow Minister, the hon. Member for Stalybridge and Hyde (Jonathan Reynolds). In his motion, he talks about “increasing energy costs, high inflation, low...

Reducing Costs for Businesses (11 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: I agree with the hon. Gentleman on long-term productivity, but that is not what his motion says. It says “low growth”, which is absolutely inaccurate. Let us have some facts in this debate. The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right on energy costs, and I think that we need to intervene. The Government are not doing nothing. They are consulting now on the right kind of measures—whether it...

Reducing Costs for Businesses (11 Jan 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: If I were running a business in Scotland, I would want to know what the hon. Member is going to do in the future, because annual economic growth in Scotland between 2013 and 2019—pre-pandemic —was 1.2%, versus the rest of the UK’s 2%. That is bad for business. What is he going to do in Scotland to grow the economy more rapidly, even to the rate of the rest of the United Kingdom?

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...

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...

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?

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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?
