Backbench Business - Whistleblowingbackbench Business (3 Jul 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend is right. The FCA has a huge opportunity. It should regulate without fear or favour, but that is not where we are. It constantly looks over its shoulder at the banks and seeks to defend their reputation by concealing the truth, rather than robustly investigating these issues. I asked Andrew Bailey four times a simple question in connection with this issue: did he follow the...

Backbench Business - Whistleblowingbackbench Business (3 Jul 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I think this is about KPMG’s audit of HBOS in 2008, which was signed off a few months before HBOS went bust, despite the fact that the risks to that business were clear. The FRC then gave KPMG a clean bill of health. There was the revolving door between the FRC and the auditors as well. It is a very big concern, which I know my hon. Friend has raised in his Select Committee work.

Backbench Business - Whistleblowingbackbench Business (3 Jul 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: The right hon. Lady pays a very important tribute and makes a very important point about how we can persuade more people to come forward. It has to be about how they are protected and looked after. Looking at other regimes internationally and how they deal with this will be an important first step in reforming our whistleblowing procedures. The big thing I would say about all the issues I...

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) (No. 3) Bill: Income Tax (3 Jul 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does the Minister think that the hon. Member for Bootle understands how reliefs work? He said that it was about giving away millions of pounds to corporations. Actually, if a corporation invests on the back of a relief, it still costs that corporation money; it just makes the investment slightly more attractive.

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) (No. 3) Bill: Income Tax (3 Jul 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman was talking about the cost of tax reliefs. Has he worked out the cost to UK business and investment of imposing a policy that would requisition 10% of businesses that have more than 250 employees? I understand that that is Labour party policy.

Department for Work and Pensions: Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (2 Jul 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I understand that the hon. Gentleman’s preference was not for making cuts to local authorities over the past few years, and he makes a good case for that. However, faced with the challenge in 2010 of balancing the books against a backdrop of £153 billion annual deficit, where would he have made the cuts?

Department for Work and Pensions: Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (2 Jul 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I do not want to upset Mr Deputy Speaker, but this is a very relevant issue, because fracking is part of local planning policy. Can I invite both my hon. Friend the Member for North East Derbyshire (Lee Rowley) and my hon. Friend the Member for Thirsk and Malton (Kevin Hollinrake)—

Department for Work and Pensions: Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (2 Jul 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I certainly do not want to debate the matter with you, Mr Deputy Speaker, because you are obviously in the right, but I would just like to invite my hon. Friends to my constituency. I do not believe that fracking will industrialise the countryside. Some 90% of my constituency is covered by petroleum exploration and development licences, and fracking is perfectly compatible with current gas...

Department for Work and Pensions: Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (2 Jul 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Sheffield South East (Mr Betts), and it has been a pleasure to serve on the Select Committee under his guidance for the last four years. I agree with many of the points he made, particularly the last stuff on cladding. We know that is a much bigger issue than is currently accepted, and we need to deal with it. It is interesting that he talks...

Department for Work and Pensions: Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (2 Jul 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: My right hon. Friend makes a good point. However, I believe that healthcare is different. Social care should be funded differently because everybody has a personal responsibility to provide for themselves in the future. Of course, people do not put money aside for many reasons. The system must be mandatory—that is the key—so that everybody puts some money aside even when times are tough....

Department for Work and Pensions: Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (2 Jul 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I entirely agree with the hon. Lady on this. The Select Committees on Health and Social Care and on Housing, Communities and Local Government issued a joint report on the future funding of social care. One of its recommendations was a social care premium—an insurance based model like the German model. Would her party engage with that, on a cross-party basis, involving Conservative Members...

Department for Work and Pensions (2 Jul 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Lady is making some powerful points, many of which I agree with, and I am also concerned by some of the pledges in the leadership contest about the spending of taxpayers’ money. What does she think about Labour’s election manifesto pledges of £1 trillion of spending?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Spending Review (2 Jul 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I certainly agree with my right hon. Friend that we need to be careful with our spending pledges, but I think that investment spending is different, particularly when the investment is in the north. Has my right hon. Friend had time to consider our letter of 29 April—signed by 80 parliamentarians—which calls for £120 billion of investment spending over 30 years and a bringing forward of...

Petition - NHS Hospital Services in the Consett Area: Disabled Access: Thirsk Station (26 Jun 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I understand that other stations are in a similar position, but how unusual is it for a station to provide no access to either platform, for either inbound or outbound trains, apart from a barrow crossing, because there is an island platform and an island ticket office?

Petition - NHS Hospital Services in the Consett Area: Disabled Access: Thirsk Station (26 Jun 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: The entry continues— “which is reliant upon staff assistance, and cannot be accessed outside of staffed hours.” Fortunately, we are starting from a good place in this debate, as improving access to our railway stations for disabled passengers is very much a key priority for the Government. As for further down the line, Network Rail is working towards an entirely accessible transport...

Petition - NHS Hospital Services in the Consett Area: Disabled Access: Thirsk Station (26 Jun 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am grateful to you for granting this important debate, Mr Speaker, because train travel has never been more popular or important. Around 20,000 miles of railway track criss-cross our island, and altogether, we made 1.8 billion rail journeys last year—a 3% rise on the previous year. I am a frequent rail user, boarding a train every week at York or Thirsk that whisks me to Westminster to...

Petition - NHS Hospital Services in the Consett Area: Disabled Access: Thirsk Station (26 Jun 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right. As I will say later, around 40% of stations do not have access for disabled people, and we know that disabled people are accounting for a greater and greater proportion of our population, so this is hugely important. I am grateful for his intervention. We need to encourage train use for all users and facilitate access to stations. Trains allow us to...

Armed Forces Day (26 Jun 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: Just to continue with the Yorkshire theme, may I suggest, as a fellow Yorkshire Member of Parliament and with regard to my hon. Friend’s earlier comments about being a reservist, that he might think about signing up as a reservist for the Yorkshire Regiment?

Kew Gardens (Leases) (No. 3) Bill [Lords] (Programme): Climate Change (24 Jun 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Doncaster North (Edward Miliband), who has been one of the world leaders in the debate on this issue. I welcome the Government’s announcement today. Climate change is without doubt the biggest danger to our planet. The UK has a very good record in this regard, but the planet has a very poor one. All of us will have to up our game...
