Covid-19 Economic Support Package (14 Oct 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. I am one of the 5.7 million business people in this country for whom this is not a theoretical concept but an existential crisis. I listened carefully to the shadow Chancellor, the hon. Member for Oxford East (Anneliese Dodds), when she talked about business confidence. I agree with much of what she...

Covid-19 Economic Support Package (14 Oct 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I agree with that, but it is not either/or. Of course we need to improve test and trace, but that should not mean we have to lock down the entire economy. That is absolutely the wrong thing. I have three solutions. The number one thing is that we look at this on a super-local basis. We know that the rate of infection in Liverpool is 670 per 100,000. It is 60 in parts of North Yorkshire, but...

Covid-19 Economic Support Package (14 Oct 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does the hon. Member agree with the Opposition that there should be multiple circuit breakers, and if so, is that what the policy will be in Scotland?

Covid-19 Economic Support Package (14 Oct 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the best way to protect jobs is to keep the economy open wherever possible? Most other nations are using a local-restrictions approach to deal with this situation, including Germany, which is using lockdowns at a district level, not even at a state or county level. Does he agree that that is the best way forward?

Covid-19 Economic Support Package (14 Oct 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: May I intervene?

Covid-19 Economic Support Package (14 Oct 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Member mentioned “a” circuit breaker, but the guidance from SAGE says that “multiple” circuit breakers might be required to bring the virus under control. How many jobs does she believe those circuit breakers would cost?

Public Health: Coronavirus Regulations (13 Oct 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: The rate of transmission varies significantly within the eight different districts of North Yorkshire. When we are looking at putting different areas into different tiers, can we look at that by district rather than at county level?

Covid-19 Update (12 Oct 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: From what the Prime Minister said, I have worked out that the entirety of Thirsk and Malton is in the lowest tier of risk, and I am very keen to keep it there. Now that we have data that is super-local data, can we have restrictions that are super-local? Rather than looking at things on the county-wide level of North Yorkshire, where we have varying levels of incidence, can we look at them at...

CCRC Decision on 44 Post Office Prosecutions (5 Oct 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: When you have caught and removed the fox from the henhouse, it is never a good idea to put it back in there to compensate the rest of the chickens. We did exactly that with Lloyds, and I fear we are doing exactly that with the Post Office. There is no obvious means of compensation for those with criminal convictions. The jury is out on the historic shortfall scheme, and those who are employed...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (5 Oct 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does my right hon. Friend agree that we need to address the inherent unfairness in the operation of the housing infrastructure fund, which allocates 80% of its budget to London and the south-east and only 20% of it to the rest of us?

Town and Country Planning (30 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. The hon. Member for Mitcham and Morden (Siobhain McDonagh) made some very fair points on space standards that we looked at in the Select Committee when I was a member. She will be aware that the Government have brought forward these new proposals to make sure that there are space standards in...

Town and Country Planning (30 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Town and Country Planning (30 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am surprised at the hon. Gentleman’s tone. He and I got on very well as co-members of the Select Committee, and he will know from his experience on that Committee that the problems with Grenfell, which he lays at the Government’s door, were decades old in the building regulations system. This is not something he can lay at the door of this Government—there were decades of failure. The...

Non-Domestic Rating (Lists) (No. 2) Bill (30 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Member makes a very good point. On the jobs at risk and the Government support she is criticising, if this is such a big issue for her party, why are no Labour Back Benchers willing to speak on this very important issue that affects millions of businesses around the UK?

Non-Domestic Rating (Lists) (No. 2) Bill (30 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend makes a good point. He alluded to the point I made earlier. If we had a business rates system that purely provided discounts for retail premises, what would we do with premises that were not retail and became retail or were retail and became another business category?

Non-Domestic Rating (Lists) (No. 2) Bill (30 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. I have quite significant interests in the business rates system, in terms of my own business, so hon. Members should take that into account. To touch on the comments from the hon. Member for Westmorland and Lonsdale (Tim Farron), I absolutely agree with his point about the business rates loophole...

Non-Domestic Rating (Lists) (No. 2) Bill (30 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: Yes, I absolutely agree with that. Community is very important to me and our shops are part of those communities. It is dangerous when the Government start picking winners—I do not think that should happen. The forces of free markets and a market economy are the best things to ensure that prices are kept low and levels of services are high for consumers. That is what is most effective. So...

Non-Domestic Rating (Lists) (No. 2) Bill (30 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: That kind of change to the multiplier would probably cost around £12 billion a year. Does the hon. Lady have any idea of where she would get the money to fill that gap?

Non-Domestic Rating (Lists) (No. 2) Bill (30 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I understand the reasons why we have postponed revaluations on a number of occasions since 2010. Does that not illustrate the changing nature of the commercial world and the need to move to a different system that is more responsive to the realities of trading on our high streets?

Public Interest Disclosure (Protection) Bill (25 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I will be brief, to let the Front-Bench spokespeople conclude. In the parliamentary briefing for this debate, there is a question posed to the Minister: do sufficient protections for whistleblowers already exist in current legislation? I hope his answer to that will be no. I hope that the Bill is successful today, but if not, it will be passed on a future occasion. My hon. Friend the Member...
