Closures of RAF Scampton and RAF Linton-on-Ouse (16 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Pritchard. I thank the hon. Member for Lincoln (Karen Lee) for securing this very important debate. In my constituency, I have the historic RAF base of Linton-on-Ouse, and I quite understand that the Minister has a difficult job. No one wants their local base to close. Bases are not just about bricks and mortar, tarmac and concrete. They...

Closures of RAF Scampton and RAF Linton-on-Ouse (16 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Lady makes some excellent points. The international threat that she outlines—particularly from Russia—is greater now than it was for many years, so it is absolutely right that we have a military that is fit for purpose. The Minister will acknowledge that we have corresponded many times over this closure, including with senior officers from the RAF, to challenge them on whether...

Closures of RAF Scampton and RAF Linton-on-Ouse (16 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend makes a very good point, which was also made to me by one of the training officers at RAF Linton who is retiring and has no axe to grind. He made exactly the same point about making sure that we have the capacity to train people on the base. I would like the Minister to make sure that we have got that capacity and that the airbase will not be needed, and to consider the points...

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill: Higher amount for long-term empty dwellings (16 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does that not reinforce the importance of local authorities using their discretion before levying extra charges on empty properties? They need to use their judgment.

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill: Higher amount for long-term empty dwellings (16 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman says that the Government are doing nothing to tackle some of the issues on the high street. Is he not aware of the Government inquiry that is led by Sir John Timpson on the difficulties the high street is facing and what we should do about it? Is it not a sensible starting point that we gather some evidence before we decide what we should do?

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill: Higher amount for long-term empty dwellings (16 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman is being generous in giving way. Will he set out his party’s policies on rejuvenating the high street and replacing business rates?

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill: Higher amount for long-term empty dwellings (16 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. I also put on the record my support for these proposals. At a time of housing crisis, it is incredibly important that we bring more homes back into use, which is exactly what this measure will do. Will the Minister set out measures for similar situations in which retail premises are unused? Filey, in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (15 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: If she will make a statement on her departmental responsibilities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (15 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Universal credit was introduced in my constituency early in 2017. Although there were initial problems following the changes made by the Government at the end of last year, Citizens Advice has reported a significant reduction in the number of difficulties. Jobcentre Plus staff also report a very positive effect in getting people back to work. Does that endorse the principle that we should...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Former Prime Minister Gordon Brown and head of the Financial Conduct Authority Andrew Bailey have joined the call by the all-party group on fair business banking for action against the bankers who cost the UK taxpayers trillions of pounds throughout the financial crisis, none of whom have been fined, banned or prosecuted, despite clear evidence of guilt of fraud and malpractice. Will my right...

Baby Loss Awareness Week (9 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Hear, hear.

Business Banking Fraud — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (9 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: The Minister rightly mentions resources, which are always tight, but does he see a potential opportunity here? HBOS has not yet been fined for its scandalous abuses of 2007 and 2008, which tore apart many businesses. Would it be appropriate to use that fine to pump-prime a crime agency to deal with these issues? That agency could then be self-funding, because it would constantly be levying...

Business Banking Fraud — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (9 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech. He said earlier in his remarks that Mr D’Eye was not behind on his payments when the bank first took action. My hon. Friend may be aware that Australia has brought forward a royal commission because of similar abuses there, and one of the changes that has come out of that process is that a bank cannot take action against a business if that...

Business Banking Fraud — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (9 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Robertson. I, too, congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Hazel Grove (Mr Wragg) on securing the debate. He is a great advocate on behalf of victims. I will start with a few words in support of banks and bankers. I have been in business for 25 years, and I could not have achieved anywhere near as much as I achieved without the support...

Business Banking Fraud — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (9 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend makes a good point, which I will come to. Interestingly, our campaign, which is supported by so many of the hon. Members present, is also supported by some interesting people. Gordon Brown, the former Prime Minister, has said that he fears another crash because the bankers have no fear of imprisonment—the personal accountability that my hon. Friend referred to. Andrew Bailey...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Court System (9 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: What steps the Government are taking to modernise the court system.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Court System (9 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will my hon. and learned Friend consider establishing a financial services tribunal to provide a low-cost dispute resolution mechanism to ensure justice for small and medium-sized businesses when they have a dispute with their bank?

Salisbury Incident (12 Sep 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman has mentioned the dependence of the financial elite on the economy in Russia. He will be aware that Russia depends primarily on oil and gas for its exports, while countries in the European Union are very dependent on oil and gas exports from Russia which are not currently part of the sanctions regime. Does he agree that it is the responsibility of every nation in Europe to...

Shale Gas Exploration: Planning Permission (12 Sep 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I congratulate my hon. Friend on bringing this important debate. As he knows, I am far more positive about the prospects for shale gas exploration than he is. Nevertheless, I and the Select Committee that I sit on have raised genuine concerns about the permitted development process, the clarity around it, and whether it relates to simply drilling a hole on an existing well pad or the...
