Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies (Environmentally Sustainable Investment) Bill (11 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: As the hon. Lady knows, I am a co-sponsor of the Bill. I am very supportive of the principle of co-operatives. On climate change, she said a few minutes ago that Wales had done better than the rest of the UK, citing how it has trebled its renewable electricity production since 2010. That is exactly what the whole of the UK has done as well—it has gone from 6.5% to 20%—so it would be good...

Tourism: Covid-19 (10 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: We also have lovely coastal communities in north Yorkshire, particularly in the shape of Filey. My hon. Friend talks about postponing the reintroduction of VAT. I absolutely support that, particularly as it will coincide, if it is reintroduced, with the repayment of other payments to HMRC and the payment of rates that restart. It would really help cash-flow pressures if it were delayed.

Protection of Jobs and Businesses (9 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: Earlier, my right hon. Friend pointed to the success of bounce back loans. There is no doubt that they have been a huge success, but some businesses who have taken out those loans will hit trouble in terms of making repayments. Will he support a programme of best practice across the banking sector to ensure that those businesses have every chance of getting through this, perhaps with...

Protection of Jobs and Businesses (9 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: rose—

Protection of Jobs and Businesses (9 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am grateful. On a sector-based approach, I think that, in an interview with The Guardian, the hon. Member said that such an approach would pose challenges. Has she yet published the solution to those challenges?

Protection of Jobs and Businesses (9 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the hon. Member give way?

Protection of Jobs and Businesses (9 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: The shadow Chancellor makes some fair points, particularly about working constructively with government. On that basis, should she not constructively set out her solution to these problems, rather than simply saying that the Government should solve them? Obviously, she has ideas of how to solve them, so why does she not publish solutions?

International Trade: Food and Farming Sector: Covid-19 (3 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: What steps her Department is taking to help the food and farming sector recover from the covid-19 pandemic.

International Trade: Food and Farming Sector: Covid-19 (3 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: My father was a hill farmer, so it was a pleasure to meet a group of hill farmers in Bilsdale in my constituency, together with British Wool, which tells me that farm-gate prices for fleeces are down by 90% this year—so farmers are better off burning them than transporting them. Will British wool feature in a future free trade agreement?

International Trade: Topical Questions (3 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: Neonicotinoids are banned in the UK as seed dressing for sugar beet growers or for oilseed rape, but they are allowed in other countries, including some in the EU, putting their producers at a natural advantage over our producers. Will advantages of that kind be eliminated in a future free trade agreement?

Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Sep 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: The bounce-back loan scheme has been a huge success, delivered by the Prime Minister and, indeed, the Chancellor, with 1.3 million loans being granted in vital support for small and medium-sized enterprises. The all-party parliamentary group on fair business banking, which I co-chair, has established that 250,000 businesses who currently bank with FinTechs and alternative lenders do not have...

UK Telecommunications (14 Jul 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I welcome my right hon. Friend’s statement and his willingness to take tough decisions, particularly when, as the China Research Group believes, they are in the national interest. With the EU President recently having had to take Beijing to task over its cyber-attacks on EU hospitals treating patients for coronavirus, does this action from the Government not send the message loud and clear...

Stamp Duty Land Tax (Temporary Relief) Bill (13 Jul 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Dr Spencer), and I will address one or two of his points, but first I must draw the House’s attention again to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests, and also apologise to the shadow Minister, the hon. Member for Liverpool, Walton (Dan Carden), as I inadvertently misled the House earlier...

Stamp Duty Land Tax (Temporary Relief) Bill (13 Jul 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: The Minister is absolutely right, and I will come to that. The Conservative Government have improved the system of stamp duty significantly. It used to be a ridiculous slab tax that created distortions all the way through the market, but we made it into a slice tax—perhaps a slam tax—that gets very expensive at the higher levels and deters activity at the top end. On the Minister’s...

Stamp Duty Land Tax (Temporary Relief) Bill (13 Jul 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman is aware that it is the purchaser who pays stamp duty, not the seller. This measure will make it more likely, when a person puts their house on the market, that they will transact, sell it and move. That has a knock-on effect into the rest of the economy.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (Temporary Relief) Bill (13 Jul 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does the hon. Gentleman realise that 90% of the people who benefit from the change will be buying their main home, not a second home? Does he think it is a good idea to cut stamp duty at this moment in time? If he does, can he explain why, with the Conservative Government cutting it in this recession and having cut it in the first recession that I went through in 1992, the Labour Government...

Stamp Duty Land Tax (Temporary Relief) Bill (13 Jul 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial interests. I am very supportive of these measures. One of the risks to the housing market is the withdrawal by the lenders of high loan-to-value mortgages, especially for first-time buyers. We know that 90% and 95% loans can become a self-fulfilling prophecy that damages the market. Will the Minister do...

Finance Bill: New Clause 27 - Review of tax reliefs (2 Jul 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the Minister give way?

Finance Bill: New Clause 27 - Review of tax reliefs (2 Jul 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I declare an interest as somebody who has benefited from entrepreneurs’ relief in the past. Is the Minister considering extending the reduction in entrepreneurs’ relief, which I support, to investors’ relief, which currently stands at the same figure as entrepreneurs’ relief used to stand at—£10 million?

Finance Bill: New Clause 27 - Review of tax reliefs (2 Jul 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am keen to talk briefly about the future fund, which is dealt with in new clause 22. The new clause covers those who have benefited from tax relief under the enterprise investment scheme and the seed enterprise investment scheme, to ensure that those tax reliefs are not withdrawn. These are important tax reliefs. I have set up a number of companies—I declare my interest, Madam Deputy...
