Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Israel and Palestine (26 Jun 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: What the policy of the Government is on a two-state solution in the Middle East.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Israel and Palestine (26 Jun 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: There is clearly a systemic issue at the heart of this. Residents of Khan al-Ahmar are being forcibly removed and the village demolished. As the court judgment says, the homes have been built without consent, but there is no means of getting consent because permissions are systemically denied to Palestinians. It is a Catch-22 situation that leaves families in a perpetual state of...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (21 Jun 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: My report “Solutions for the fifteen per cent”, which I have sent to the Secretary of State, makes a compelling case for the use of fixed wireless to deliver broadband to the hardest-to-reach areas. Will the Secretary of State meet me and colleagues to discuss how those initiatives might be implemented?

Health and Social Care: Innovative Drugs and Devices (19 Jun 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Probably the most important recommendation in the new O’Neill review into antimicrobial resistance was the requirement for diagnostics prior to the prescription of antibiotics by 2020. Will the Minister update the House on progress towards that goal, and will he agree to meet me and colleagues, including Lord O’Neill, to discuss the establishment of an antibiotic...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (18 Jun 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: The draft national planning policy framework largely closes the loophole of viability assessments, which developers often use to avoid the requirement for affordable housing. Would the Minister consider introducing stronger compulsory purchase order powers, so that local authorities can step in and purchase sites when developers continue to refuse to meet their obligations?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I know that the right hon. and learned Gentleman wants to separate out the customs union from the single market, but we cannot separate those two things if we are talking about frictionless trade and just-in-time deliveries. Checks would be required not just for customs and rules of origin, but for product regulations and conformity with standards. Further to the question from my hon. Friend...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: As a remainer who voted to remain and campaigned heavily to remain, and who would do so again if we ever had another referendum—not that I am advocating that—I think it is fair that Members on both sides of the House raise their concerns about the economy and the effect on jobs and trade. As you know, Mr Speaker, I am still involved in business to this day, so this has a potential...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I find that assessment of the circumstances very hard to follow. We are not negotiating on our own; we are negotiating with another party, and clearly it is in their interest to put a bad deal on the table in that situation. That would delay the exit process, which is effectively what these amendments seek to do. I am not saying that my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am about to conclude, Mr Speaker. The amendment would hand over the negotiating advantage to the EU and raise the prospect, whether Members intend it or not, that we may never leave. Opposition Members should not support it.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: rose—

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Tenant Fees Bill (21 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. Despite the fact that I have been involved in this sector for most of my life, and am still involved, I am very supportive of the Bill and the drive to ban tenant fees. That said, on the hon. Lady’s point about holding deposits and the reference fees that tenants pay to the agent or landlord, does...

Tower Block Cladding (21 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does the Secretary of State share my surprise that the Hackitt review did not look in detail at the building regulations? Does he accept the need for urgent revision of the building regulations and clarity on them, particularly with regard to combustible materials, and will he set out the process and timescale for that review?

Plastic Bottles and Coffee Cups (17 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: May I pay tribute to the Sunnyside Ocean Defenders? Those young students were so passionate, engaged and knowledgeable. They were interested in not just plastic but many different things in the world that they wanted to improve, including the protection of polar bears. I remember clearly that they also wanted to ban wild animals in circuses, which the Department is very keen to do. I thank...

Building Regulations and Fire Safety (17 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I welcome my right hon. Friend’s statement and the fact that he has gone a significant step further forward than the Hackitt review recommendations on the key issue of combustibility. In a letter to the Chair of the Select Committee, Dame Judith explains that there are two ways to work with the current guidance: either using products of limited combustibility in cladding systems or...

Grenfell Tower (16 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: I sit on the Select Committee that took evidence from Dame Judith Hackitt. We had concerns about her interim findings, and we had correspondence with her following that session in which she admits, in relation to building regulations: “There is currently a choice between using products of limited combustibility or undergoing a full-system test”. She goes on to say that “the former is...

Grenfell Tower (16 May 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: The right hon. Gentleman mentions compelling landlords to carry out remedial work to blocks with inappropriate cladding on the outside, and I understand the imperative and rationale behind that, but where there is not a contractual obligation on the landlord to do that—where the building is occupied by long lease holders—by what mechanism would he force them to have that work carried out?
