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

Stephen Kinnock: We have talked a lot about accountability and trust today, but another important word here is “risk”. We saw in the events leading up to 2008 and the collapse of Lehman Brothers a systemic failure to manage risk. It is in the interests of both Government and the private sector more broadly—the real economy and the financial services sector—to put systemic measures in place in order to...

Scotland Bill (Programme) (No.2): Clause 11 — Scope to modify the Scotland Act 1998 (9 Nov 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: Does the Secretary of State agree that a woman’s right to choose should be universal?

Bill Presented: Clause 9 — Union supervision of picketing (10 Nov 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: I declare an interest as a proud member of Community union. I represent the south Wales constituency of Aberavon which is steeped in the history of the trade union movement—Members will imagine the strength of feeling and amount of correspondence that I have received in opposition to this unjust and vindictive Bill. We now need a cultural change in Britain’s industrial relations, and a...

Bill Presented: Clause 9 — Union supervision of picketing (10 Nov 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: I agree entirely with my hon. Friend. We hear a lot from Conservative Members about smart government and deploying resources according to priorities. Does any hon. Member honestly believe that using police resources on this matter would be a good use of already stretched resources? I think not. The digital age has brought a revolution in the world of work. That has thrown up several...

[Valerie Vaz in the Chair] — British Council (10 Nov 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Vaz. I congratulate the hon. Member for Somerton and Frome (David Warburton) on securing this important debate. I must declare an interest. I worked for many years at the British Council, with overseas postings in Brussels, St Petersburg and Sierra Leone. I will always remember my time at the council fondly and with a sense of pride. In...

[Valerie Vaz in the Chair] — British Council (10 Nov 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: I do. The ODA has been given as a demonstration of the effectiveness of the council’s work in least developed countries. The major challenge the council faces is the reduction in the FCO grant, which has been eroded constantly over the years. As the hon. Member for Somerton and Frome mentioned, the fundamental problem is that that increases the council’s reliance on commercially generated...

[Valerie Vaz in the Chair] — British Council (10 Nov 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: I do. Also, as I will go on to argue later, the council’s English language teaching and exam work is important, makes a big impact and is very lucrative, but it tends to be for the elites in the societies where the council is operating. It is the high end of English language learning and people pay top dollar for it. If we are saying that it is important that we engage with the disaffected,...

[Valerie Vaz in the Chair] — British Council (10 Nov 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: As my hon. Friend will know, one of the council’s important functions is to manage programmes such as Erasmus, as well as English language teaching assistants going out to other countries, particularly those in the European Union. Does he agree that Britain’s membership of the European Union is an important aspect of the backdrop to the British Council’s work in demonstrating that the...

[Valerie Vaz in the Chair] — British Council (10 Nov 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the effect on the reputation of the British Council and the United Kingdom is an important aspect of the discussion of financing? Is there a risk of a negative reputational effect if the British Council starts to be perceived as a money-making machine in the economies where it works, rather than an organisation concerned with building mutually beneficial...

Bill Presented: Clause 2 — Entitlement to vote in the referendum (8 Dec 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: In the 20 seconds that remain to me—[Interruption.] It is now 19 and counting, so I will not take any interventions. I wish to argue that this measure makes sense. We need to trust our young people and empower them. Let us give them this vote and this chance.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Pharmaceutical Price Regulation Scheme (17 Dec 2015)

Stephen Kinnock: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, which companies have left the voluntary pharmaceutical price regulation scheme in each month since January 2014 to date; and if he will make a statement.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Pharmaceutical Price Regulation Scheme (17 Dec 2015)

State Pension Age (Women) (7 Jan 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: Conservative Members are constantly asking what a practical transitional plan might look like. Surely it is the responsibility of the Government to bring forward such a plan, which the House can then debate. This is an abdication of responsibility.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Arms Trade: Saudi Arabia (12 Jan 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, if he will suspend all licences permitting UK-produced arms to be sold to Saudi Arabia.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: SMEs (13 Jan 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: The Welsh steel industry plays a critical role in underpinning business right across the board, including SMEs, but global headwinds affecting the industry have been growing stronger. Will the Secretary of State join me and Welsh MPs from all parties in asking for a meeting with his right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills to ensure that no stone remains...

Opposition Day — [15th Allotted Day] — Trade, Exports, Innovation and Productivity (13 Jan 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: The hon. Gentleman is making an interesting and important point about foreign takeovers, particularly hostile takeovers. One of the important ones recently was Pfizer’s attempt to take over AstraZeneca. I am sure he agrees that that case concluded in absolutely the right way, by protecting one of the great British assets and enabling it to continue its long-term strategies of investment in...

Opposition Day — [15th Allotted Day] — Trade, Exports, Innovation and Productivity (13 Jan 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: Nobody is asking for subsidies. The UK steel industry is asking for a level playing field. We are seeing the massive dumping of heavily subsidised Chinese steel—70% of Chinese steelmakers are state owned—dragging down the price of steel and crippling the British steel industry. This is not about subsidies but about smart regulation, proactive Government intervention and taking action and...

Attorney General: EU Renegotiation (14 Jan 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: Whether he has had discussions with the Prime Minister on the legal form of the UK’s renegotiation deal with the EU.

Attorney General: EU Renegotiation (14 Jan 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: Article 50 of the Lisbon treaty states that, on announcing its intention to withdraw from the European Union, the withdrawing state will automatically be excluded from all meetings of the European Council and, if agreement is not reached within two years, the withdrawing state will be automatically excluded from the negotiated terms. Does the right hon. and learned Gentleman agree that a...
