Local Government Finance (5 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I think the shadow Minister said that the business rates system is driving the change on the high street. I speak as somebody who has a number of properties in my business, and that is not what is driving this change. It is a change in consumer behaviour that is driving the change on the high street.

Local Government Finance (5 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to speak after the hon. Member for Vauxhall (Florence Eshalomi), who made some interesting points, particularly on Grenfell and the cladding situation, which I have spoken about many times in this Chamber. I agree with some of the points she made about that. It was also a great pleasure to listen to the hon. Member for Jarrow (Kate Osborne), who made an excellent maiden...

Local Government Finance (5 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am grateful. The right hon. Gentleman seems to imply that somehow shire counties are getting a better deal from central Government in terms of spending allocation than metropolitan areas, but that is absolutely the reverse of the truth. The reality is that the shire counties get less than half as much as the metropolitan areas allocated from central funds, and that is why our council tax...

Local Government Finance (5 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman is worried about the impact on the local authorities he mentioned because they cannot raise as much money through council tax. Does he accept that the shire districts get much less local government funding, so their council tax has to be much higher? It is only right that we consider a fairer funding formula, so that everybody pays a fair amount and receives a fair amount.

Local Government Finance (5 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: We have discussed this before, but does the hon. Gentleman agree that we should have cross-party talks on adult social care? One of the Select Committee’s key recommendations was that adult social care funding should be removed entirely from local authority pressures and we should adopt a German-style social insurance system. Does he agree that we should have cross-party discussions and...

Rail Services: North-East England (4 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I thank the hon. Member for securing this important debate. I agree that the TransPennine service has been dire. It was already the second-worst performing franchise in the country, but in December it got much worse. Only half the trains were on time, and 33% were either significantly late or cancelled. Does he agree that there should be a more punitive system of fines to focus the attention...

Innovation in Hospital Design: Lloyds, HBOS and the Cranston Review (4 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am grateful to you, Mr Hollobone, for calling me again, and to the Minister for his comments. Sir Ross Cranston has left a tremendous legacy with his report, and I am very pleased to hear that the Minister thinks similarly. This matter is not just about this individual review process—the Griggs review. An industry benchmark should be set on how to do things and how not to do them, and on...

Innovation in Hospital Design: Lloyds, HBOS and the Cranston Review (4 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman makes a good point about products and services being sold to consumers and businesses. The royal commission in Australia determined that one of the biggest drivers of mistreatment of businesses and consumers was the incentives paid to people at the sharp end to sell those products. The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right. A public inquiry might well identify where this is...

Innovation in Hospital Design: Lloyds, HBOS and the Cranston Review (4 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I beg to move, That this House has considered Lloyds, HBOS and the Cranston review. It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair, Mr Hollobone. I think this is the second time I have spoken under your chairmanship about banking matters. This story is at least as shocking as the last one we discussed. The story starts back in 2007, when Nikki and Paul Turner, who were then customers of HBOS, told...

Innovation in Hospital Design: Lloyds, HBOS and the Cranston Review (4 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Member is absolutely right. The biggest learning we have is that the whole process must be independent. It simply cannot be fair to have any review carried out within the bank’s boundaries that provides compensation for victims. It must be independent and independently verified. I very much appreciate her work and support on the all-party parliamentary group on fair business...

Innovation in Hospital Design: Lloyds, HBOS and the Cranston Review (4 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I absolutely agree with the hon. Lady. This is not just about Lloyds. A number of independent reviews have taken place, but they have been undertaken by the relevant banks. That simply cannot be right, in terms of justice for victims or their feeling that justice has been done. Justice being seen to be done is a basic principle that, it seems, the banking sector does not have to adhere to....

Innovation in Hospital Design: Lloyds, HBOS and the Cranston Review (4 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman makes an interesting point, although that is not a model I am familiar with. Class actions are definitely opportunities that are not well exploited the UK because of our legal system. I would be keen to talk to him further about that approach. Within our system we have the Financial Ombudsman Service, which does not necessarily have the best reputation, although I know the...

Innovation in Hospital Design: Lloyds, HBOS and the Cranston Review (4 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: Absolutely, and we see that time and time again. It is not just about businesses or jobs—although clearly businesses and jobs are lost—but about the effect on people’s lives. I understand that as a business person myself. My business has been my life. If somebody had taken my business away from me in those circumstances, I do not know how I would have coped. The Minister may say that...

Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Jan 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does the Prime Minister agree that we need to increase capacity on our railways in and between the north, the midlands, the south and Scotland, and that unless we want decades of disruption, the only way to do this is through Midlands Engine Rail, Northern Powerhouse Rail, and HS2?

NHS Funding Bill (27 Jan 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: In his earlier remarks, the hon. Gentleman mentioned social care. He will be aware that the Health and Social Care and the Housing, Communities and Local Government Committees recommended in a joint report a range of options, one of which was a social insurance premium. Will he agree to cross-party talks, and does he think that all those different options laid out in that report should remain...

NHS Funding Bill (27 Jan 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman makes some interesting points, but is it not the case that the best way forward is not to have a precondition about the subject of those talks, and that we should simply have a cross-party discussion? In that way, he can find out more of the detail behind the Japanese system, which he says he is lacking. Why does he need to make preconditions to those talks?

5G Network and Huawei (27 Jan 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: The Minister quite rightly supports the case for open trade, but do we not also need fair trade? When making such decisions, should we not take into account the fact that companies such as Huawei receive significant financial support from the state, which puts western companies at a competitive disadvantage?

Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Transitional Support (27 Jan 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: What steps she is taking to provide support for people who require additional help transitioning to universal credit.

Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Transitional Support (27 Jan 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: If someone is on a four-weekly payment cycle, they will be paid twice in one month every year. That cocks up their universal credit claim as well as their cash flow. Until we fix the system, would a simple solution not be to give an interest-free loan to tide them over that period?
