EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (13 Nov 2018)

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (13 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I seek clarification, because presumably we are going to be asked to vote on the motion on the Humble Address, which clearly says, “that the following papers be laid before Parliament: any legal advice in full”. It says “any legal advice”, yet the shadow Secretary of State is now defining the legal advice that he wants to present. What are we to vote...

Finance (No. 3) Bill (12 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Enfield, Southgate (Bambos Charalambous). Although I do not agree with all his views, I thought that the way he put them across was clear and impassioned, and I congratulate him on that. I must draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests, because I want to focus most of my remarks on business and I...

Finance (No. 3) Bill (12 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend is right. Capitalism depends on a fair and level playing field, and that is not where we are at the moment. As well as the expansion of the Financial Ombudsman Service, which we fully support, our all-party group proposes the introduction of a financial services tribunal that works in pretty much the same way as an employment tribunal. A company could take a bank to court...

Finance (No. 3) Bill (12 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I agree with the hon. Gentleman. This will come sooner or later, and we should grasp this opportunity. It is clearly in the interests of businesses that they should be able to seek resolution fairly in the courts. The courts are all about dispute resolution. Anything else is an alternative, and it cannot be right. There is a saying that the High Court is open to everyone, just like the Ritz...

Finance (No. 3) Bill (12 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: The right hon. Gentleman spoke earlier about cross-party consensus on social care. Is he aware of the joint report of the Health and Social Care Committee and the Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee? One of its recommendations was for a social care premium—social insurance of the type used in Germany—to solve this problem. There are no Liberal Democrats on those Committees...

Finance (No. 3) Bill (12 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman mentions the reasoned amendment, which refers to the long-term funding of adult social care. Two Select Committees, the Health and Social Care Committee and the Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee, recommended a social insurance system in their inquiry’s report. Is he willing to support that cross-party recommendation as a solution to the future funding of...

Finance (No. 3) Bill (12 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: According to the economist David Smith, if Labour policies at the last election had been implemented, people who were earning between £100,000 and £120,000 a year would have been paying, on that element of their earnings, a marginal rate of taxation of 72%. Does the hon. Gentleman feel that that is a fair burden of taxation on earners at that level?

Finance (No. 3) Bill (12 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will my right hon. Friend confirm that, for somebody on the minimum wage, if we combine the increases in the national living wage with the increased personal tax threshold, somebody in full-time work is £3,955 a year better off in cash terms than in 2010?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Apprenticeships (12 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: What steps his Department is taking to improve the quality of apprenticeships.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Apprenticeships (12 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Derwent Training Association in Malton in my constituency offers very high-quality precision engineering apprenticeships, but too often it comes up against headteachers who would rather see their students go to university. What more can we do to make sure that schools promote high-quality apprenticeships?

Assessment and Treatment Units: Vulnerable People: Centenary of the Armistice (6 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a great honour to speak and to listen to so many moving speeches today, including the excellent speech by the hon. Member for Argyll and Bute (Brendan O’Hara), and to be able to pay tribute to so many Thirsk and Malton constituents of yesteryear, including in my home town of Easingwold, where it is my great privilege to lay a wreath on Sunday and pay tribute to all those who gave so...

Holiday Hunger Schemes: Post Offices (North Yorkshire) — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (6 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the Minister give way?

Holiday Hunger Schemes: Post Offices (North Yorkshire) — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (6 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: The Minister makes a good point on the Government’s support for the post office network. The concern is where, because of the closure of banks, post offices end up being the only physical premises at which someone can bank. If the Government were to withdraw their support, those towns will have no banking service. Can we do more either to stop banks closing the last branch in a town, or to...

Holiday Hunger Schemes: Post Offices (North Yorkshire) — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (6 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this important debate. Post office services are always critical, but particularly now. Banks in villages and towns such as Kirkbymoorside and Filey in my constituency are closing, handing over responsibility for banking services to post offices and walking away, yet there is no long-term guarantee of how long those post offices will exist. Does he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Support for Businesses and Entrepreneurs (6 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am grateful for the Chancellor’s recognition in his Budget speech of the work that the all-party parliamentary group on fair business banking has done on dispute resolution between banks and businesses. The Financial Conduct Authority’s report into that matter recommends “a role for both an extended ombudsman service and a tribunal, as they meet different needs.” Will my right hon....

Housing, Communities and Local Government: New Homes for Social Rent (5 Nov 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Our policies on affordable homes are almost entirely focused on affordable homes to rent. Does my hon. Friend agree that we should also deliver more affordable homes to purchase?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (31 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Liverpool, Walton (Dan Carden). I look at self-management slightly differently, in that I have been in business for most of my life. I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. I rise to commend many of the policies in the Budget, and particularly its support for small and medium-sized...

Shale Gas Development (31 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend mentioned rural Pennsylvania, where I went to look at this issue in 2015. I came back with the distinct impression that it can be done in a way that is sensitive to the countryside, but it needs careful planning. North Yorkshire County Council developed a plan that restricts proliferation and density, but the concern with NSIP and permitted development is that they will ride a...
