International Trade: Trade Agreements: SMEs (10 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: What steps she is taking to ensure that trade agreements provide a level playing field for SMEs.

Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: The Prime Minister’s excellent First Homes policy will allow tens of thousands of key workers and local first-time buyers to buy a home every year at a discount of up to 50% on the market price. Will he consider turbocharging that policy by establishing a national land commission to assemble public sector land to facilitate the development of potentially hundreds of thousands of more...

Compensation (London Capital & Finance plc and Fraud Compensation Fund) Bill (8 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the Minister give way on that point?

Compensation (London Capital & Finance plc and Fraud Compensation Fund) Bill (8 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Powers are one thing, willingness is another. The FCA has shown a remarkable reluctance to hold people to account for incompetence or bad actors, as the Minister said. Will not those failings simply continue unless the FCA starts identifying individuals, within its own ranks or within the banks, for those failings, and holds them to account?

Employment Rights (8 Jun 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. As a former employer, I absolutely support the Government’s approach to strengthening workers’ rights and stamping out bad practice. When it comes to enforcement, whistleblowers are far more effective at identifying inappropriate behaviour or practices than regulators are. Nevertheless, from a...

Agricultural Exports from Australia: Tariffs (27 May 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Contrary to what the right hon. Member for Islington South and Finsbury (Emily Thornberry) said, I am not a member of a right-wing think tank; I am the son of a farmer and I represent a farming constituency. Nevertheless, I am very supportive of any trade deal with Australia that maintains a fair and level playing field. Will my right hon. Friend set out what exact role the Trade and...

Business Rates Reduction Services — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (26 May 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I thank all hon. Members for their support in this debate. Everybody made very well thought through comments. I particularly thank the Minister. There is no doubt that this issue has arisen as an unintended consequence of the generous targeted support from the Treasury for small businesses. Very small businesses, generally, are then subject to predatory behaviour from the rip-off merchants,...

Business Rates Reduction Services — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (26 May 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: May I associate myself with the hon. Gentleman’s words? Brian was a great man—a great man who did much work for many businesses that could not fight for themselves, in the battle against larger banks. He did a tremendous job, in his inimitable way. He was humble. It was never for himself. It was always, as the hon. Gentleman says, for the underdog, fighting an almost impossible battle. He...

Business Rates Reduction Services — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (26 May 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I beg to move, That this House has considered regulation of business rates reduction services. It is an absolute pleasure to speak under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I must first draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. I am delighted to have the opportunity to talk about this issue. This debate is obviously the most important event...

Affordable and Safe Housing for All (18 May 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: On planning reform, as the Secretary of State knows, 30 years ago small and medium-sized enterprises built two thirds of new homes and today that figure is only 23%. The costs of planning have a disproportionate effect on small and medium-sized housebuilders. Does he believe that his reforms to the planning system will change that and improve the life of SMEs?

Affordable and Safe Housing for All (18 May 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. The hon. Lady talked a number of times about home ownership but then implied that the Government are doing nothing about it but are reducing levels of home ownership. However, does she accept that home ownership peaked in 2003 and has declined since? It is now being reversed, including through some...

Justice: Topical Questions (18 May 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does not the collapse of the Serco fraud trial and the fact that the Serious Fraud Office was prosecuting only mid-level managers rather than the people responsible for defrauding the taxpayer, which they admitted, high- light the need to bring forward a “failure to prevent economic crime” offence at corporate level, and to make it a criminal offence?

Debate on the Address: Better Jobs and a Fair Deal at Work (12 May 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: The point is that we need to put political differences aside on this issue. Decades of underinvestment have brought us here. The hon. Gentleman is trying to make a cheap political point, but that is not at all what I was saying.

Debate on the Address: Better Jobs and a Fair Deal at Work (12 May 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Easington (Grahame Morris). I totally agree with him that levelling up has to be very much about better jobs and a fairer deal at work. The scale of the challenge of levelling up is huge. As I said in my intervention on the Chancellor, the economic disparity in productivity and economic output per capita between the north-east and London and the...

Debate on the Address: Better Jobs and a Fair Deal at Work (12 May 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Of course, jobs depend on economic growth under the stewardship of the SNP. Over the past eight years, average UK GDP growth has been 2% a year, and in Scotland it has been 1.2%. What is the hon. Gentleman going to do about driving the Scottish economy to grow more quickly?

Debate on the Address: Better Jobs and a Fair Deal at Work (12 May 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: The hon. Lady talked about people with connections to the Conservative party trying to get their favoured contractors to the front of the queue. Does she remember emailing me in the Cabinet Office to ask for one of her constituency companies to get to the head of the queue for exactly the same purpose?

Debate on the Address: Better Jobs and a Fair Deal at Work (12 May 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. The hon. Lady seems to be accusing Members of this House of personally pocketing money. Will you ask her to explain exactly what evidence she has in that regard?

Debate on the Address: Better Jobs and a Fair Deal at Work (12 May 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: First, may I wish the Chancellor a very happy birthday? The scale of his ambition on levelling up is absolutely right, but the scale of the challenge is also huge. The economic gap between London and the south-east and the north-east, in relative terms, is as great as it was between East Germany and West Germany prior to reunification, and it took 30 years to narrow that gap. Does he agree...

Transport: Access to Airports: North of England (29 Apr 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: What steps his Department is taking to improve access to airports in the north of England.

Transport: Access to Airports: North of England (29 Apr 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Vital plans to expand Leeds Bradford airport have been delayed due to planning matters. I realise that my hon. Friend cannot comment on planning matters, but does he agree that expansion of airports in Yorkshire, which is very under-served in airport capacity, is vital to the economy and to leisure opportunities for people in Yorkshire?
