Social Mobility Index (9 Feb 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: The hon. Lady is making a thoughtful speech. She is talking in particular about areas with the greatest levels of deprivation, yet the Government have removed the key indicator for levels of deprivation, which is income. Does that not render meaningless the analysis that she is trying to present?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (23 Feb 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: On 12 January, the Secretary of State told this House that China’s claim to be treated as a market economy should be judged through the prism of steel. Given that 70% of the Chinese steel industry is owned by the Chinese Government, will the Secretary of State now confirm that China should emphatically not be granted market economy status?

Uk Steel Industry (29 Feb 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: I am grateful that we have been able to secure this debate. Ever since last month’s announcement of 750 job losses at the Port Talbot steelworks, I have been calling for a full and comprehensive debate on the future of British steel. The Tata steelworks in Port Talbot is the beating heart of my Aberavon constituency. These job losses, and those that are sure to follow along the supply...

Stephen Kinnock: What steps he is taking to engage and involve more members of the public in the day-to-day business of Parliament.

Oral Answers to Questions — Leader of the House: Public Engagement in Parliament (3 Mar 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: I thank the hon. Lady for her response. One way in which we can ensure that more people engage in politics is by reaching them at a young age, and I therefore welcome the increase in school visits to this place under your speakership, Mr Speaker. What assessment has the Deputy Leader of the House made of the effectiveness of schools visiting Parliament and of the education centre in getting...

Backbench Business — Gangs and Serious Youth Violence: Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: I beg to move, That this House has considered Welsh affairs. I can confirm that, this morning, I enjoyed a meeting with the Secretary of State, at which we discussed the crisis in the Welsh steel industry, so he was certainly available for discussions then. It is a great honour to open this debate today, and I am grateful to the Backbench Business Committee for allowing a St David’s day...

Backbench Business — Gangs and Serious Youth Violence: Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention, but I am afraid that he is confusing the budget of the European Union with the British economy. The British economy benefits to the tune of £227 billion a year in the exports that it makes to the European Union, thanks to its membership of the single market. If we are looking for value for money, £9 billion to £227 billion looks like a...

Backbench Business — Gangs and Serious Youth Violence: Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. Membership of the European Union is defined by how a country engages and how it works with partners in Brussels—both with the European Commission and the other member states. What we have is a Government who, in 2011, recognised that there should be an energy-intensive industries compensation package, but then failed to knock on the door in...

Backbench Business — Gangs and Serious Youth Violence: Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. As we have discussed, it is clear that energy-intensive industries require support from Government. That was recognised by the Chancellor in 2011. The support that has come, finally, is welcome. The big question for me is how it could possibly have taken five years to make that happen—to get the state aid clearance that was required from the...

Backbench Business — Gangs and Serious Youth Violence: Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: I agree absolutely. The Energy and Climate Change Committee has just produced a compelling report that clearly demonstrates that we are losing investment and jobs precisely because of the mixed messages and signals that this Government send to investors. Business abhors a vacuum. Business needs stability. It needs to know whether there will be a return on its investments, and at present it...

Backbench Business — Gangs and Serious Youth Violence: Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: This outstanding project, made possible by EU and European Investment Bank funding, is one of the largest and most important knowledge economy projects in Europe, producing cutting-edge research focusing on science and innovation. The “internet coast” is a plan for the future. It is a pity the same cannot be said of the Government’s draft Wales Bill, which does not provide anything like...

Backbench Business — Gangs and Serious Youth Violence: Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: I agree entirely. That comes back to an issue I was talking about earlier: the need for a long-term industrial strategy that connects supply with demand and that gives our steel producers some certainty so that they know what infrastructure projects are coming down the track. They can then configure their production processes to ensure that they make the right kind of steel at the right time....

Backbench Business — Gangs and Serious Youth Violence: Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: The Minister was going OK until he got to the bit about dumping. I am sorry, but we cannot let that one go. There are two key facts. The British Government are the ringleader of a group of member states that is blocking the scrapping of the lesser duty rule, which would make a huge difference to the ability to impose tariffs on unfairly dumped Chinese steel. They are also the chief...

Backbench Business — Gangs and Serious Youth Violence: Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: I should like to thank the entire House for an excellent debate today. We have covered a wide range of issues including the economy, the EU, the Wales Bill, the Severn bridge toll, road and rail, city deals and public services. The red threads that run through all these subjects are the ideas of partnership, investment and solidarity. We know that we need to work together with the European...

Backbench Business: Swansea Tidal Lagoon — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (8 Mar 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Brady. I congratulate the hon. Member for Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire (Simon Hart) on securing this debate. The presence of so many hon. Members here today shows why the project is of such importance. I rise today to urge the Government to give this vital project the go-ahead soon. I believe that the tidal lagoon should be...

Backbench Business: Swansea Tidal Lagoon — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (8 Mar 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: The hon. Lady is correct. My argument is still that that strike price, as a unit price, is very attractive, particularly when we consider the economies of scale that would come from the construction of further tidal lagoons. We will see a downward trend in that strike price, which is a very convincing economic argument.
