Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Bill: Parental bereavement leave and pay (11 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am happy to come back on this point. We are clearly dealing with a minimum here. We expect employers to be—our evidence absolutely supports the fact that they are—generous and sympathetic in such situations. Many of them give full pay and provide whatever time is needed for the parent to try to recover—or to move on—from the tragedy. We are trying to cater for the isolated numbers...

Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Bill: Parental bereavement leave and pay (11 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend makes a strong point. The world of work is certainly changing. He will be aware of the Matthew Taylor review, which has been examining issues relating to the gig economy and how we define someone as an employee or a worker, as well as all the different categories of employment and self-employment. We want to keep options open in the Bill so that we can mirror the outcomes of...

Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Bill: Parental bereavement leave and pay (11 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend is making some excellent points. The Bill has an impact on the Treasury, with an annual cost of about £3.2 million, because the taxpayer—not the Treasury itself, clearly—will be picking up the tab for the statutory pay element. We have to take that key consideration into account. We must also consider costs for businesses, especially small businesses, as they will suffer...

Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Bill: Parental bereavement leave and pay (11 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend is making some strong points. He will be aware that there is already a requirement for employers to give reasonable time off when people suffer such tragedies but, as he says, the Bill seeks to ensure that the employers who would not normally be generous and sympathetic also give people the time off that they need at times of great tragedy and grief.

Backbench Business - Banking Misconduct and the Fcabackbench Business (10 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman mentioned executives from RBS who are still earning large amounts of money within the financial services sector. Is he aware that Nathan Bostock, a senior director within GRG, currently earns £1.6 million as chief executive of Santander and £1.8 million a year from RBS as part of his payoff?

Backbench Business - Banking Misconduct and the Fcabackbench Business (10 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I thank the hon. Member for East Lothian (Martin Whitfield) for bringing forward this important debate. Like me, he is an officer of the all-party group on fair business banking and finance, which I co-chair. I also speak today on behalf of Jon and Kerry Welsby and others in my constituency who have suffered as a consequence of the apparent bank-induced failure of business services company...

Backbench Business - Banking Misconduct and the Fcabackbench Business (10 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman makes a strong point. We should thank the Treasury Select Committee and its Chair for their work. As I said, these issues are not restricted to RBS. Many will also be familiar with the HBOS Reading scandal, where former bankers and their advisers were jailed for a total of 47 years in 2017 for activities that took place over a decade earlier, prior to the takeover by Lloyds...

Backbench Business - Banking Misconduct and the Fcabackbench Business (10 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: They should certainly be included in the wider investigation, which is what I will call for shortly. The Project Lord Turnbull report raises significant questions. Was there deliberate concealment of the scale of the fraud within HBOS and Lloyds? Who was party to the concealment? Crucially, did the concealment result in significant loss to bank shareholders and to subscribers to the rights...

Royal Assent: Private Members’ Bills: Money Resolutions (10 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will my right hon. Friend update the House on the progress of my private Member’s Bill on parental bereavement, which I hope will complete its remaining stages in this House tomorrow?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (10 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Fixed wireless could provide an immediate solution to superfast broadband in rural areas. Openreach knows this, but constantly refuses to deploy it. Will my right hon. Friend do all he can to persuade it to change its mind?

Health and Social Care: Obesity (8 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Lambert Hospital in Thirsk was bequeathed to the town by Sara Lambert in 1890, and was closed via the back door by South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust last year. NHS Property Services is planning a sell-off to the highest bidder, despite the fair offer that is on the table from the local authority which could include provision for community use such as public health advice. Does my...

Breast Cancer Screening (2 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I thank my right hon. Friend for his statement and for his tone. This was clearly a failure not only of IT, but of quality assurance, so will he commission a review of quality assurance right across the health service to ensure that it is as effective as it should be?

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I voted remain and campaigned heavily to remain. I held eight debates during that campaign, alongside a gentleman from the UK Independence party, to help voters to decide what was the right or wrong thing to do. I said repeatedly that if we left, the negotiations would be difficult, and for two reasons. First, given that we had been members of the European Union for 44 years, the complexity...

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Is my right hon. Friend therefore proposing that we stay members not just of the customs union, but also of the single market?

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: We spend a lot of time in this Chamber developing new regulations and rules that put costs on business. They might be environmental regulations, workplace regulations or animal welfare regulations. If the hon. Lady is talking about doing a free trade deal with nations that do not have such high standards, would she not be putting UK businesses at a significant disadvantage?

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does the right hon. Lady accept, though, that even with a customs union there would still be a need for checks at the border for things like product standards?

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: rose—

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am grateful. The right hon. Lady has been very generous in taking interventions. Earlier, she referred to the potential for tailbacks as a result of checks. What I was trying to get across in my earlier question was that if we were still in the customs union but not the single market, checks would still be needed for product standards, so is she actually proposing membership of both the...

Stamp Duty Land Tax (26 Apr 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: May I draw the attention of the House to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests? I welcome the Minister’s statement, and express my support for stamp duty relief for first-time buyers. That measure exists to reverse the trend of declining home ownership that began in 2003, and it is the right thing to do. Will the Minister confirm the commitment made in the autumn Budget...
