Transport: Williams-Shapps Plan for Rail (24 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: What steps his Department is taking to implement the policies set out in the Williams-Shapps plan for rail.

Transport: Williams-Shapps Plan for Rail (24 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Given York’s historic connections and its strategic location, does my right hon. Friend think that it would make the perfect location for a new headquarters for our Great British Railways?

English Wine Week (23 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Right across England, and indeed even in North Yorkshire—which might sound very northerly for a wine—there are the wonderful, award-winning Ryedale vineyards that produce the fantastically named Yorkshire’s Lass and Yorkshire’s Lad white wine. It really is top-drawer and worthy of that award. Does my hon. Friend think we might push the Treasury to introduce some incentives for our...

Social Care Reform (23 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does my hon. Friend agree that a Dilnot-style proposal would reward and incentivise people who had not saved or used financial planning to pass their assets and savings on to relatives or to trusts? A German-style social care premium would be a much fairer system. We would all pay a small amount to cover those who were hit by the catastrophic costs to which she has referred. When she makes...

Planning Decisions: Local Involvement (21 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

Planning Decisions: Local Involvement (21 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Grouse Shooting — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (21 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate with you in the Chair, Ms McDonagh. I do not accept that we should ban driven grouse shooting, and nor do I accept that there is a wilful blindness to the issues. I point out to the petitioners that, although I am sure their concerns are earnestly expressed, there is a blindness in some quarters to the positive impact on the people, economy,...

Grouse Shooting — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (21 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I will conclude on this point. It is absolutely right that we should clamp down on any wildlife crime, including against birds of prey. Wild Justice was responsible for some changes to general licences that make it much more difficult to control other types of birds, such as gulls, which have a devastating impact on chicks—grouse chicks, lapwing chicks and curlew chicks. We have to ensure...

Grouse Shooting — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (21 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: On hen harriers, is the hon. Lady aware that there were 50 hen harrier chicks in 2006, zero in 2013 and 60 last year? It is really important that we look at the evidence and do not move to emotive arguments, and it is really important that we look at the facts. Does she not accept that there is work going on to improve hen harrier breeding?

Grouse Shooting — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (21 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: That is the point: the numbers did decline from 2006 to 2013, but now they are on the rise again. It is really important that we look at the positive work that is going on in these areas rather than just thinking that it is all about the way that moors are managed.

Grouse Shooting — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (21 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: They are going up.

Grouse Shooting — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (21 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend is making a very good point. Lots of people think that woodland is a habitat for lots of wildlife, but that is not always the case. Coniferous woodland is almost devoid of wildlife. People point to the reforestation or forestation of these areas, but that actually increases the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by four to six times per hectare, compared with moorland.

Free Trade Agreement Negotiations: Australia (17 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I congratulate the Secretary of State on this significant achievement. She has also set an important precedent: as this deal was done from scratch, it potentially sets the basis for all our future trade agreements. Does my right hon. Friend agree that we must include in this agreement something missing from other international free trade agreements around the world—we must establish and...

Catch-up Premium (15 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: The point I would like to make in this debate is that we should not fall into the trap of thinking this is all about money. There are factors behind success and achievement other than money, and it is debilitating to think that is the only thing that counts. Before I go on to illustrate what I am talking about, I would just pick up on the comment the hon. Member for Bermondsey and Old...

Catch-up Premium (15 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: That is what the hon. Member said, and I apologise, but I think it is important to look at the context, and I think the per capita figure is very relevant. The other point I would like to make is about the motion, and my hon. Friend the Member for Wantage (David Johnston) made this point very well. It does endanger candid advice if the Opposition are simply going to request all the...

Catch-up Premium (15 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

National Insurance Contributions Bill (14 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate. When we talk about levelling up, we tend to think about things such as new railways or roads, or the dualling of carriageways such as the A64 in my constituency, which is long overdue, of course. It is absolutely right that we should think about those things—they are important—but they are just part of the picture. Really, levelling up is about...

National Insurance Contributions Bill (14 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Just to clarify, the hon. Member says that freeports might be part of the solution—to levelling up, I guess—but does he therefore support freeports or does he agree with his colleague in the shadow Treasury team, the shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, the hon. Member for Houghton and Sunderland South (Bridget Phillipson), who has said that they are “economically illiterate”?

National Insurance Contributions Bill (14 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

National Insurance Contributions Bill (14 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman does keep mentioning it. Just on the point about corporation tax, he seems to imply that somehow we are in favour of lower corporation tax, but he is aware that the Government are increasing corporation tax from 19% to 25%. On pillar 2 and pillar 1, I have heard him at the Dispatch Box on numerous occasions urging the Government to sign up to a deal that was only on pillar...
