Orphaned Open-cast Mines (9 Sep 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this important debate, and I thank you, Mr Davies, for your chairmanship. Does my hon. Friend agree that the situation has now become a serious health and safety issue? Whatever the questions around who owns what—is it Celtic? Is it Oak Regeneration? It seems as though we will be constantly bamboozled by those two companies as they sneak away from...

Business of the House: Sustainable Development Goals (10 Sep 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for noticing me as I jumped to my feet with great rapidity. I congratulate the hon. and learned Member for Sleaford and North Hykeham (Stephen Phillips) and my hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, West Derby (Stephen Twigg) on securing this crucial debate. I also want to declare that I spent more than a year living and working in Sierra Leone as director of...

Business of the House: Sustainable Development Goals (10 Sep 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: I absolutely agree and therefore underline the importance of us leading by example, which is why I mentioned some of the regrettable decisions made in removing subsidies for renewables. Nevertheless, the Paris discussions and the SDGs mesh together and I hope we will show leadership in Paris in the coming months. Supporting and enabling sustainably minded business is the key to generating...

Stephen Kinnock: What recent assessment he has made of the effectiveness of the Government’s strategic support for industries and sectors.

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Government Strategic Support (15 Sep 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: I thank the Minister for her response. Given the crucial role of the steel industry to the British manufacturing sector and our very sense of pride and prestige as an industrialised nation, will you today agree to accelerate the full implementation of the energy-intensive industries package? Crippling energy bills are crippling the steel industry, and it is time for the Government to act.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Economic Inactivity (16 Sep 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: The Port Talbot steelworks in my constituency accounts for over 4,000 jobs, but it is facing crippling energy bills. Does the Secretary of State agree that urgent action is now required to help the steel industry to reduce its energy costs?

Bill Presented — Immigration Bill: Backbench Business — UK Steel Industry (17 Sep 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Redcar (Anna Turley) on securing this vital debate today, and I also thank the Backbench Business Committee. Before I get on to the substance of my speech, I want to pay tribute to three gentlemen who are sitting in the Gallery. Roy Rickhuss is the general secretary of the Community union, and he is here with Alan Coombs and Dave Bowyer. Those...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Redcar Coke Ovens (13 Oct 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: The Back-Bench debate secured by my hon. Friend the Member for Redcar (Anna Turley) was held shortly before the trip to China, which took place amid much fanfare. The Minister pledged to go to China and lobby strongly against the massive dumping of Chinese steel in our market. May we have a detailed response about what was secured as a result of those discussions?

Welfare Benefit Changes — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (14 Oct 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Swansea East (Carolyn Harris) for securing this important debate. In the political to-ing and fro-ing that surrounds the decisions taken in this place, the consequences for innocent children are all too often shunted down the list of priorities. I agree with the numerous calls from children’s charities for us to start to put children at the centre of...

Welfare Benefit Changes — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (14 Oct 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: I absolutely agree; as hon. Members have said, the issue must be about the bigger picture and the sort of society we want to build—not tomorrow’s headlines in the Daily Mail. The Conservative party claims to be a one nation party and the party of the workers. That is high-flying rhetoric, but the reality is a story of division, attacking the most vulnerable in society while inheritance...

Isil: European Council (19 Oct 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: The Prime Minister is aware of the fact that the British steel industry faces a crisis and that massive dumping of Chinese steel is a major contributory factor. Does he agree that all of the other steel-producing nations in the EU are much smarter at applying anti-dumping measures, and that it is time for the UK to smarten up how it uses such measures and to act unilaterally where necessary?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Steel Industry (20 Oct 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: The Secretary of State will be aware that the hard closure of the Redcar steelworks will cost hundreds of millions of pounds to secure the assets that are there, and the continued bad news on closures will cost hundreds of millions of pounds more, potentially running into billions. Has he shared this information with the Chancellor of the Exchequer? Does the Chancellor understand the impact...

Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Steel Industry (28 Oct 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: On those five asks, particularly around anti-dumping and state aid, does my hon. Friend agree that the principle that should now be applied is shoot first and answer questions later? Is it not time that we started looking at unilateral action, as we are now dealing with a crisis.

[Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] — Transforming Rehabilitation Programme (28 Oct 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: I beg to move, That this House has considered implementation of the transforming rehabilitation programme. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Nuttall. It is now almost 12 months since the formal creation of the 21 community rehabilitation companies and the establishment of the new national probation services. It has since become clear that fundamental flaws in the former...

[Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] — Transforming Rehabilitation Programme (28 Oct 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point. The purpose of a consultation is to listen to the experts. In this case, the experts have described themselves as being used as “bid candy” to dress up the bids, rather than being involved in a truly engaged fashion. I agree entirely with my hon Friend’s point. Significant challenges were immediately obvious. First, the marketplace was not...

[Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] — Transforming Rehabilitation Programme (28 Oct 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: I do agree with my hon. Friend. It is important to put a system in place that works. The old maxim, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, applies. We absolutely have to be open to new forms of innovation, working in partnership with both the third and private sector, but that was already happening. The new system that has been put in place has unfortunately caused a great deal of...

[Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] — Transforming Rehabilitation Programme (28 Oct 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: I thank the Minister and all hon. Members who have attended the debate, which has been excellent. The fundamental point that the Opposition would make is that there is nothing wrong with experimentation and innovation, but that there is a fundamental structural problem now: the splitting and fragmentation and the proliferation of providers have created lack of clarity and are increasing...

[Graham Stringer in the Chair] — Corporate Economic Crime (3 Nov 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Stringer. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Ealing North (Stephen Pound) on his inspiring and passionate speech. The image he gave towards the end of his speech of Al Pacino playing Arthur Scargill will live with me for the rest of the day. Before I start, I must declare two interests: I am the Parliamentary Private Secretary...
