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

Kevin Hollinrake: I support the point made by my right hon. Friend and the hon. Member for Poplar and Limehouse (Jim Fitzpatrick) about the need for sprinklers. My right hon. Friend mentions the spread of fire. Does he recognise that the Grenfell tragedy could have been averted if the spread of fire by combustible cladding outside the building had been prevented? At current rates of progress, it will take...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Technical and Vocational Education and Training (11 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: What steps his Department is taking to improve the delivery of technical and vocational education and training.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Technical and Vocational Education and Training (11 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: One of Sir Michael Wilshaw’s departing recommendations when he left Ofsted was that every multi-academy trust should contain a university technical college that offers maths, science and a technical specialism. Will the Minister look at taking that forward?

Solar Industry — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (5 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this important debate. I note that the Renewable Energy Association has lobbied for a market-based solution, which this clearly is. However, I share some of her concerns that, without certainty on pricing, some people will be deterred from investing here in the first place, unless we can get the matter right.

Regional Transport Infrastructure — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (5 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the Minister give way?

Regional Transport Infrastructure — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (5 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: The A19 runs through my constituency as well, as the hon. Gentleman may know. He makes a good point about fairness, but does he concede that the point is not a party political one? The situation has been going on for decades under Governments of different political persuasions.

Regional Transport Infrastructure — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (5 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Ryan, and to follow the hon. Member for Barnsley Central (Dan Jarvis). I thank him for securing the debate. I will touch briefly on devolution, which has proven to be the most intractable political situation in Yorkshire—much more so than Brexit—over the past five or 10 years. However, I am sure that there is a way forward, and I...

Regional Transport Infrastructure — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (5 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I totally agree. I will come shortly to the clear ask, which has been set out for us by Transport for the North. The Government are doing much. By 2021, infrastructure investment spending as a percentage of GDP will be at its highest for the last 30 years, while the national productivity investment fund will increase to £37 billion by 2023-24. The Government recognise that this is an issue....

Regional Transport Infrastructure — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (5 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing this important debate. He tempts me on devolution. I am absolutely committed to devolution in Yorkshire, but we have to get the right type of devolution. He is a trailblazer with the city region devolution deal that he has struck with the Government. Does he agree that the best form of devolution to Yorkshire would be on a city region basis,...

Regional Transport Infrastructure — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (5 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am not sure I’m invited.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (4 Mar 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does my hon. Friend agree that we should deliver more affordable homes to purchase in the form of discount market sale, which remain affordable in perpetuity?

Backbench Business: Greater Manchester Spatial Framework — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (21 Feb 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: Why don’t you do it, then?

Leaving the Eu: Economic Impact of Proposed Deal (20 Feb 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: With the Scottish economy growing at half the rate of the rest of the United Kingdom, can my right hon. Friend offer any advice on economic growth to the Government north of the border?

Exiting the European Union (Structural and Investment Funds) (19 Feb 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Lady refers to some figures that, I think, come from the Institute for Public Policy Research, saying that the spending in Yorkshire is 15 times lower than it is in London.

Exiting the European Union (Structural and Investment Funds) (19 Feb 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: Yes, but those figures are inaccurate. The contribution from central Government is pretty much on a par on a per capita basis. The difference comes when we add in local authority spending on transport infrastructure and private sector investment. It is about 3:1, which is still too great a differential, but it is important that we look at the figures in the round and factually, rather than...

Exiting the European Union (Structural and Investment Funds) (19 Feb 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I will refrain from asking my hon. Friend’s opinion on a no-deal. Structural funds are there primarily to try to rebalance our economy, through regional investment right across the UK. Whether we are in the EU or out, and whatever state we are in afterwards, does he agree that it is hugely important that we spend a greater proportion of our investment on infrastructure and other economic...

Making Tax Digital (19 Feb 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests about my continuing business interests. My right hon. Friend has taken a very considered approach to the threshold of eligibility and the pace of the roll-out. Will he confirm not only that he will continue that approach in the next phase of the roll-out, but that our default position should be to...

Honda in Swindon (19 Feb 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: This announcement is very sad news for the workers at Swindon and for the jobs and businesses in the supply chain, but does my right hon. Friend agree that this is much more to do with the EU-Japan trade deal than it is about Brexit? The reality is that free trade deals create winners and losers in the short term, but in the longer term, there are benefits for all from free trade.

Northern Ireland Backstop (19 Feb 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: Rather than having to agree with the European Union whether we have met our obligations to avoid a hard border in Northern Ireland, would it not be fair and reasonable to both sides to refer the matter to a process of arbitration?

Exiting the European Union (Financial Services) (18 Feb 2019)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to be called in this important debate. I must say that I am at a bit of a loss as to why the hon. Member for Oxford East (Anneliese Dodds) has such an issue with these statutory instruments. They are simply about bringing current legislation from the European Union into domestic law; there are no significant policy changes. I was also a little mystified as to why she thought...
