Education (Guidance about Costs of School Uniforms) Bill (13 Mar 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am delighted to sponsor the Bill. The hon. Gentleman mentions branding. Will he confirm that it is not his intention to stop all branding on school uniforms? It is quite appropriate for schools to require a badge on the blazer to promote the identity of the school and pride in the school, and he is not trying to restrict the ability of a school properly to brand its uniform.

Education (Guidance about Costs of School Uniforms) Bill (13 Mar 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: Further to the point raised by my hon. Friend the Member for Hitchin and Harpenden (Bim Afolami) about the cost of uniform, the £340 in the research is not just for the uniform. It is also for shoes, bags and other things. The cost of the branded items, according to the research, was only £100 and they normally last for two years, so the actual cost of the branded items is more like £50 a...

Planning for the Future (12 Mar 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I welcome my right hon. Friend’s statement. Supply alone will not solve all the affordability problems in the housing market. It will require intervention, such as his excellent First Homes initiative. Will he consider extending that initiative to directly commissioning first homes on public land and perhaps combining First Homes with Help to Buy to further improve the affordability of home...

Health and Social Care: Points-based Immigration (10 Mar 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does my hon. Friend agree that a German-style system of social insurance for adult social care would relieve the burden and reduce the requirement for overseas workers, by allowing a loved one, a neighbour or a friend to provide that care and be properly remunerated for it?

Terms and Conditions of Employment (3 Mar 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to speak in the debate. While I very much appreciate what Government and Opposition Members have said, the credit and inspiration for the legislation certainly does not belong to me. They belong to many other people, not least my hon. Friend the Member for Colchester (Will Quince), who tried to introduce such a measure in a previous Parliament. I was simply lucky enough to...

Terms and Conditions of Employment (3 Mar 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I thank the hon. Lady for her kind comments earlier. She will acknowledge that, as the Minister said, this is a signal to employers. It is not simply a case of, “This is what you have to give.” She will agree that most employers are considerate in such circumstances and will go much further than the regulations require. This is the floor that we will work from, rather than the ceiling.

Social Care (25 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: A German style system of social insurance would allow somebody who is defined as needing social care to draw down a certain amount of money which they could then use to pay to a relative, a loved one, or a neighbour who understands that person best and who can care for them best. Is that not a sensible basis for a cross-party discussion, between the Opposition and the Government, about...

Tax Avoidance and Evasion (25 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Coventry South (Zarah Sultana). I share some of her concerns about ensuring that those with the broadest shoulders pay the most, following the lead of the shadow Chancellor, but it is useful to look at the facts. An interesting survey was carried out by PricewaterhouseCoopers and the BBC on the nations that have the highest proportion of tax on...

Tax Avoidance and Evasion (25 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: It related to income tax. [Interruption.] The point I was making was about income tax. The shadow Chancellor talked about raising taxes from the people who earn the most, and I was simply responding to that point. I have said in the Chamber many times that we should clamp down on tax avoidance and tax evasion. The shadow Chancellor strikes me as the failed football manager turned TV...

Tax Avoidance and Evasion (25 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: One of the measures that the Government introduced in 2017 was a corporate offence of failing to prevent tax evasion, which certainly has had an effect on advisers. Will my right hon. Friend consider expanding that failure to prevent offence to include economic crime and money laundering, which would further narrow the tax gap?

Tax Avoidance and Evasion (25 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: This is not just about the money. It is also about a fair and level playing field for everyone in the country. We know that Google turns over about 10 billion quid in the UK, we know that its international profit margin is about 22% and that 19% corporation tax on that should be £418 million, and we know that it pays about £67 million. Will all the additional measures that my right hon....

Tax Avoidance and Evasion (25 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: Surely the right hon. Gentleman will be aware that the top 1% of earners in this country now contribute about 29.6% of all taxation, whereas in 2009-10 the figure was only about 25%. How can he say that is a failure?

Ministry of Justice: Topical Questions (25 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: The introduction of a corporate offence of failing to prevent economic crime could well have prevented a succession of banking scandals: PPI, the rigging of LIBOR and forex and the scandalous mistreatment of thousands of small businesses. What plans does the Justice Secretary have to introduce such an offence?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Shared Rural Mobile Network (13 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: What steps his Department is taking to help deliver a shared rural mobile network.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Shared Rural Mobile Network (13 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: In answer to the Sports Minister’s question, I think that Wrexham won 1-0, and he was one of—off the top of my head—the 4,200 people in the crowd.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Shared Rural Mobile Network (13 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I’m being intervened on by the Sports Minister! The £1 billion shared rural network, 50% of which is paid for by the taxpayer, has the support of just about every rural parliamentarian in this place, but apparently it is at risk because BT is increasing its charges to other operators. What can the Minister do to bring BT back to the table and ensure that the deal goes through?

Leaseholders and Cladding (12 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: I draw the House’s attention to my declaration in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. It is not simply that freeholders say, “I don’t have the money.” They do not have the obligation. Most freeholders do not have an obligation to mitigate any such problems. Perhaps the only people who do are the original developers—who, as the right hon. Member says, may not be...

Treasury: Equity of Economic Opportunity (11 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: Small and medium-sized enterprises are critical to economic opportunity and would undoubtedly benefit from greater access to business finance, yet challenger banks suffer from the same capital requirements as larger banks, despite the fact that they do not present the same systemic risk. Will my right hon. Friend say what he might be able to do to change that situation?

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Air Pollution (6 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: What steps her Department is taking to improve air quality.

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Air Pollution (6 Feb 2020)

Kevin Hollinrake: Air quality is seen very much as an urban issue, but even in the bucolic rural constituency of Thirsk and Malton we have our problems, including in Malton town centre due to high levels of standing traffic. What support can my hon. Friend offer to the local authority to resolve this issue?
