Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Council Tax (2 Jul 2012)

Adam Holloway: I thank the Secretary of State for his answer. I will ask my question in a very calm manner. The majority of councils in Kent have frozen their council tax. Is he disappointed that in Gravesham it has risen by 3.48%, which is just below the 3.5% threshold for a referendum?

Opposition Day — [1st Allotted Day]: Ministerial Code (Culture Secretary) (13 Jun 2012)

Adam Holloway: The hon. Gentleman talks about “enormous seriousness”. I do not know what the public make of this, but we are voting on a matter to do with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State, who is extremely honourable. This House has never voted on the insane levels of immigration or the death of our troops in Afghanistan. This is bonkers; it is student politics.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Water Resources (1 Mar 2012)

Adam Holloway: What recent discussions she has had on water resources; and if she will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Water Resources (1 Mar 2012)

Adam Holloway: In Kent, a lot of our water comes from an underground chalk aquifer. What is its long-term sustainability, and what can the public and local businesses do to help?

Opposition Day: [Un-Allotted Half Day] — Banking (Responsibility and Reform) (7 Feb 2012)

Adam Holloway: I do not know whether the hon. Gentleman finds this attitude terrifying, but I do, and it is on both sides of the House. We can blame the bankers all we like, but the truth about the problems across the developed world and the reason we are in schtuck is that successive Governments have not been able not to give in to demands to spend more money. In a global economy savvy investors and...

Opposition Day: [Un-Allotted Half Day] — Banking (Responsibility and Reform) (7 Feb 2012)

Adam Holloway: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Metal Theft (12 Dec 2011)

Adam Holloway: What steps she is taking to tackle metal theft.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Metal Theft (12 Dec 2011)

Adam Holloway: Metal theft costs us a huge amount of money in this country, as the Minister knows, whether it is of dodgy copper wire or lead from churches such as those in Ifield in my constituency. Is there any argument for seizing the entire inventories of metal dealers found to be purchasing what are effectively stolen goods?

North Africa and the Near and Middle East (28 Nov 2011)

Adam Holloway: Just after the fall of Tripoli, I, with the director of the Conservative Middle East Council, went out there and, in the chaos of the week after, met an Islamist who, having fought against us in Iraq and Afghanistan, made the most extraordinary comment, saying: “This is the first time that the west has stood with ordinary people in the region. We shall not forget it.”

North Africa and the Near and Middle East (28 Nov 2011)

Adam Holloway: In Afghanistan and, indeed, Iraq, I felt very sorry for the previous Government because one often had the feeling that they were not being told the truth at every opportunity. On a Defence Select Committee trip to Afghanistan, I remember being briefed by a guy in the Foreign Office who gave us the normal line that everything was going terribly well but that there were challenges. Six weeks...

Backbench Business — [34th Allotted Day]: National Referendum on the European Union (24 Oct 2011)

Adam Holloway: I had no real background in politics when I was elected in 2005. I had been a soldier and a television reporter. In fact, I had never even been into the House of Commons Chamber. A couple of days before the House sat for the first time after the election, I wandered into the Members’ Lobby and chatted to one of the security guards, who let me into the Chamber. It was dark, and I started to...

Backbench Business — [34th Allotted Day]: National Referendum on the European Union (24 Oct 2011)

Adam Holloway: It may have something to do with the fact that she lives in the north of Scotland. This country developed and exported the simple idea that laws ought not to be made unless they were made by the people’s elected representatives, but it seems from some of the e-mails that I have been receiving over the last three days that some of our constituents are quite close to giving up on that notion....

Backbench Business — [34th Allotted Day]: National Referendum on the European Union (24 Oct 2011)

Adam Holloway: I will not, actually. The Deputy Prime Minister was even louder in his protestations. He said: “The Liberal Democrats believe we should have a real vote on Europe—whether we should be in Europe or out… the public back our position by a margin of 2:1”. I should say that the margin is about the same today. Those statements, and many more from the Front Benches, render irrelevant the...

Backbench Business — [34th Allotted Day]: National Referendum on the European Union (24 Oct 2011)

Adam Holloway: Obviously, I completely agree with my hon. Friend. We do not have the right to give away powers entrusted to us by our constituents. To anyone who is still wondering which way to vote, I say: “Do not try to guess what the result of a referendum would be, and do not worry about wording or timing. You need only ask yourself two questions. First, is this the right thing to do in principle?...

Backbench Business — [34th Allotted Day]: National Referendum on the European Union (24 Oct 2011)

Adam Holloway: No, I really cannot give way now. Members can repay the confidence placed in them by their constituents on that first evening when they stood on the platform and heard the returning officer mention their name. They should not rebel against the people who sent them here. For me, the bottom line is really quite straightforward. For seven years I have been wandering around telling the good...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Economy (6 Jul 2011)

Adam Holloway: What recent assessment he has made of the Northern Ireland economy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Economy (6 Jul 2011)

Adam Holloway: Will my right hon. Friend ensure that internal squabbles in the Assembly do not undermine the consultation?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Afghanistan (14 Feb 2011)

Adam Holloway: There are many Afghans outside the ruling clique who believe not only that the exit strategy will not work in the long term, but that it is fatally flawed and in fact cannot work. General Petraeus's strategy has been described as "Fight, then talk". Does the Secretary of State think that we ought to be fighting and talking, and that this should include talking to all modes of the insurgency?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (8 Feb 2011)

Adam Holloway: Given the astronomical levels of debt left to families in my constituency, can the Chancellor confirm that the planned cuts for this April that he inherited from Labour were just £2 billion less than those of the Government?
