Permitted Development and Shale Gas Exploration (28 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing this important debate. She said that fracking is a new fossil fuel sector, but is it not right that shale gas would simply displace imports, rather than create additional demand on gas-fired power generation?

Permitted Development and Shale Gas Exploration (28 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: My point earlier was about displacement: we use gas anyway, so this is not about more gas, but about whether we import it or produce it. There are 23 million homes in the UK connected to the mains gas network. Is the hon. Lady’s home one of them?

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (27 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is an honour to follow the hon. Member for Vauxhall (Kate Hoey). She made some important points about the manifesto promises and about living up to them. There are some other promises that we need to live up to. Time and again, I have heard colleagues criticise the Prime Minister, in the House or on the media, for setting out her red lines and not budging from them. For me, those red...

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (27 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Lady shakes her head. I apologise. Vote Leave, which was the primary advocate for leaving, clearly set out promises to control our borders, control our laws and control our money, while having a free trade agreement. I have read the Vote Leave manifesto several times, and the words were, “There is a free trade area that stretches from Iceland to the borders of Russia, and we will...

Health and Social Care: Access to GPs (26 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: GPs are the first line of defence against superbugs and antimicrobial resistance, and the Secretary of State is already proving to be a world leader in this area. The idea of a resistance tax has the support of other world leaders including Lord O’Neill and Dame Sally Davies. Would he consider this approach?

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (26 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: Breast cancer oncology is the most recent service to be closed at Scarborough Hospital. It follows the closure of the pain clinic, dermatology, the eye clinic and physiotherapy. These are not cuts, but a contrived centralisation by the trust in York. Will the Secretary of State intervene to ensure that there is a full range of service right across my constituency?

Exiting the European Union (Food and Agriculture) (19 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: Food safety is a critical element in the fight against antimicrobial resistance and the tackling of superbugs. Will my hon. Friend do all that he can to ensure that the UK remains a world leader in this area after we have left the European Union?

Clydesdale Bank and Smes (19 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I thank the Minister for all the work he has done in this area. I do feel that we are making progress, but, understandably, the jury is out until we get to the place we need to be. I also thank the hon. Member for Lanark and Hamilton East (Angela Crawley) for tabling such an important question today. There are many issues with this. The case concerned follows a typical pattern. Over 10,000...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (19 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: The all-party parliamentary group on fair business banking and finance is dealing with several cases, including those of Keith Elliott and Julia Davey, that raise serious questions about inappropriate links between insolvency practitioners and banks, specifically KPMG, PwC and Lloyds Bank. What action is the Minister taking to remove such conflicts of interest?

Integrated Care Regulations (18 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Gentleman talked about the funding of social care. One of the recommendations made by the Health and Social Care Committee, in concert with the Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee, as a solution to adult social care funding, was a system of social insurance. Would he support that on a cross-party basis?

Holocaust (Return of Cultural Objects) (Amendment) Bill (15 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate on this important Bill, and I express my strong support to my right hon. Friend the Member for Chipping Barnet (Theresa Villiers) and congratulate her on her work. This Bill is refreshingly brief but hugely symbolic, and it is right that works of art and other cultural items be returned to their rightful owners. These were unthinkably horrific crimes....

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc.) Bill: Extension of Civil Partnership (15 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend has cleared up that point. Nevertheless, this is an important part of the Bill. Thank you for the opportunity to speak in this debate, Mr Deputy Speaker. I congratulate my hon. Friend yet again on introducing this Bill, which I fully support.

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc.) Bill: Extension of Civil Partnership (15 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for East Worthing and Shoreham (Tim Loughton) again on introducing this important Bill. He said that this was about complete equality, and the Bill is about some basic principles, including equality, fairness, choice and freedom, which I believe in very much. The UK has a proud record in all those areas, and...

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc.) Bill: Extension of Civil Partnership (15 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend will be aware from his legal background that marriage or civil partnership affords both members of a couple additional rights to a position where they are just cohabiting. It may well be the case that some people are more comfortable in a civil partnership, and through the Bill they can effectively grant each other greater rights in case there is ever the need for them due to...

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc.) Bill: Extension of Civil Partnership (15 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I had the great privilege to take a couple of private Members’ Bills through the House myself, one of which my hon. Friend strongly supported. When I explained those two Bills to the public, their reaction was “Why do those provisions not already exist?” Surely the same applies to this Bill: all three of its provisions should have been introduced long ago.

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc.) Bill: Extension of Civil Partnership (15 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: Some time ago, when I was taking the Bill I referred to earlier through the House, one of my constituents contacted me to say that their son was born after 23 weeks and six days and sadly passed away two days later, but had that not happened they would never have been able to register the baby. What a massive difference between those two positions. It cannot be right that this will not have...

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc.) Bill: Extension of Civil Partnership (15 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: My hon. Friend the Member for East Worthing and Shoreham (Tim Loughton) referred to the principles that lie at the heart of the Bill and this particular part of it in terms of equality, as did my hon. Friend the Member for Solihull (Julian Knight), but there is something else as well. My hon. Friend the Member for South Suffolk (James Cartlidge) read out the note from his constituent—I...

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc.) Bill: Extension of Civil Partnership (15 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I congratulate my hon. Friend on bringing forward this very important Bill, which I fully support. I am very impressed by his prescience in introducing this Bill a year before the Supreme Court decided that this was a very good idea. He mentioned the power in subsection (3) of the new clause to make “any other provision”. Will he detail what kind of provision that might be in that...

Fire Safety and Sprinkler Systems — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Mar 2019)

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