Baby Loss (13 Oct 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. On his point about inspiring people to come forward, what he describes is exactly what happened to Luke and Ruthie Heron, constituents of mine. Their son Eli was born after 23 weeks and six days. He lived for two and a half days further. Had he not lived those two and a half days, he would have been considered a miscarriage, rather than a...

Baby Loss (13 Oct 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend is making an emotional and passionate speech. Two of my constituents, Annika and James Dowson, attended a reception yesterday that was kindly provided by Mr Speaker. They suffered the loss of their baby, Gypsy, who was stillborn in Scarborough hospital. Annika stayed on the maternity ward, with expectant mothers, listening in the most tragic of circumstances to babies crying....

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union: Neighbourhood Planning Bill (10 Oct 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Lady mentioned landscape. One of my SME developers was required to submit a landscape scheme before starting on the development itself, as a pre-commencement condition. Does she not see that some of these conditions are completely inappropriate?

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union: Neighbourhood Planning Bill (10 Oct 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate and to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Eddisbury (Antoinette Sandbach). I fully support the provisions of the Bill, and I congratulate Ministers on giving people unprecedented power over planning. It is clear that this is a power not to limit development, but to decide where properties will go and what infrastructure is required. It is a power to...

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union: Neighbourhood Planning Bill (10 Oct 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I definitely agree that there should be more community engagement. However, although many people in smaller villages and towns want more development, the policies of local authorities prevent that from happening, which is entirely counter-intuitive. The lack of new development puts schools, shops and public houses at risk. I wonder how we can influence local authorities and encourage them to...

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union: Neighbourhood Planning Bill (10 Oct 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend makes a fine point. When he refers to broadband, is he talking about fibre to cabinet, or fibre to premises? Is not the latter the key future-proof mechanism we need to enable properties to access high-speed broadband?

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union: Neighbourhood Planning Bill (10 Oct 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Hinkley Point C (15 Sep 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I welcome the long-term investment in low-carbon energy and the creation of 25,000 jobs. Will the Secretary of State confirm EDF’s commitment to local jobs and to small and medium-sized businesses in the supply chain, such as James Fisher Nuclear in my constituency?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Solar Power (13 Sep 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I welcome the new ministerial team to their new roles. Kingspan, a significant employer in my constituency, has contacted me regarding concerns about the revaluation of business rates for cellphone rooftop solar. The result is a sixfold to eightfold increase in rates. Will my hon. Friend agree to meet me and representatives from the company to see how these effects can be mitigated?

Fourth Industrial Revolution (8 Sep 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is always a pleasure to speak with you in the Chair, Madam Deputy Speaker. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Havant (Mr Mak) on securing this very important debate and on his motion, which notes the importance of small and medium-sized businesses, the huge contribution they make and their expertise. The motion also calls on the Government to “continue introducing and...

Fourth Industrial Revolution (8 Sep 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend hits on one of my favourite topics: the culture of corporate obfuscation that we get from BT and its willingness to underinvest to maximise profitability. We absolutely need to get BT to up its game. I agree with Ofcom, which says that one solution is to open up the ducts and poles to other operators. Perhaps in future, when there are bidding rounds for Government investment,...

Fourth Industrial Revolution (8 Sep 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: There are huge challenges ahead. The situation is similar with Amazon, of course. Small businesses used to engage on the Amazon platform. A small business driver would pick up goods and take them to their destination; in future that will done by autonomous vehicles and drones. Amazon will completely dominate the supply chain, so where is a small business opportunity there? In previous...

Fourth Industrial Revolution (8 Sep 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend makes a good case. In California, people are experimenting with something called a digital dividend. The money that is being made is paid back to people in the form of a dividend for which they do not have to work, but work is important. We want the opportunities; we want the work. We do not want to be redundant, sitting at home while machines do all the work for us. We must...

Fourth Industrial Revolution (8 Sep 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman mentioned the sale of ARM Holdings to SoftBank. Yesterday we saw the announcement of Micro Focus, a UK business, buying a significant business of Hewlett Packard. Does he think that we should be able to buy businesses internationally, but not be able to sell them internationally?

Supported Housing: Benefit (20 Jul 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Wentworth and Dearne (John Healey), who has much experience in these matters. It is clear from all the remarks made this afternoon that everyone in this House supports supported housing. One of the most inspirational parts of our job is visiting organisations such as Ryedale YMCA in Malton, Yorkshire Housing, North Yorkshire County Council...

Supported Housing: Benefit (20 Jul 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: But does the right hon. Gentleman accept the number of times it has been said by Ministers that this is subject to a policy review, which is due out in the autumn? Therefore, to say that this is going to happen is absolutely wrong. I do accept that uncertainty is being caused by this policy decision, and we should think through a policy before we announce it. This does disincentivise...

Supported Housing: Benefit (20 Jul 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. As others want to speak, I will move on to one other point, which is the disincentive for the young people in these facilities, which do a fantastic job. Recently, on a visit to Arc Light in York, I met two young men in their 20s: one was a brickie and the other a joiner. They were perfectly capable of working, but were totally deterred from working,...

Supported Housing: Benefit (20 Jul 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am very glad that we agree on that point. The other impression that I got from these young people was that they did not seem to feel any particular urgency to get back into work. We should consider whether we are providing the right incentives and encouragement for these young people, who are perfectly capable of working, to get into work. In conclusion, I do accept some of the points in...

Supported Housing: Benefit (20 Jul 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: I welcome my right hon. Friend to his post. As part of the solution he mentions, will he look at the perceived barrier preventing people who benefit from this kind of accommodation from getting back into work? People I have met in these kinds of facilities locally feel that they cannot earn enough to be able to pay back the effective £250 a week cost of the accommodation.

Supported Housing: Benefit (20 Jul 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does the hon. Gentleman understand that a research project is now looking at this evidence? That conflicts with his motion on the Order Paper, which says: “the Government intends to cut housing benefit for vulnerable people”. That is pure scaremongering.
