Fire Safety Bill: After Clause 2 - Prohibition on passing remediation costs on to leaseholders and tenants (22 Mar 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: After the previous debate, I offered my hon. Friend the opportunity to sit down and look at an amendment that might work, in concert with the Government. The other difficulty with the amendment is that it would put the onus back on a building’s freeholders. Many people would say that that is fine—that it is better than the leaseholders having that responsibility—but I do not think it...

Backbench business: Social Care Reform — [Dr Rupa Huq in the Chair] (18 Mar 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: The Minister is doing a fantastic job on this issue, which is one of the biggest issues that faces us. If this is not going to be a blank cheque for the taxpayer or for the recipient of the care, does the Minister agree, as I think the shadow Minister, the hon. Member for Leicester West (Liz Kendall) did, that there has to be a pooled solution, perhaps like the German-style system of social...

Backbench business: Social Care Reform — [Dr Rupa Huq in the Chair] (18 Mar 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I agree with virtually everything the hon. Lady has said. A funding solution is key, because in order to expand capacity there has to be more money. Does she have a funding solution for that? Would she consider a German-style system, which has cross-party support, or would she at least be willing to sit down with a number of people who support that system to engage with the idea?

Backbench business: Social Care Reform — [Dr Rupa Huq in the Chair] (18 Mar 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am delighted to be so. It is a pleasure to speak in the debate with you in the Chair, Dr Huq. I am going to speak, not for the first time, in favour of a German-style adult social care premium. All the speakers today have made good points about the need to resolve the problem, but we must address it with money. The need can be supported only by a financial solution. There are three elements...

Levelling Up (16 Mar 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I welcome my hon. Friend the Minister to his place on the Front Bench. He has made a great start. Will my hon. Friend confirm that the levelling-up fund will welcome applications from rural areas, such as Ryedale in my constituency, which may look prosperous from the outside but whose average earnings are below the regional average, partly because of a past lack of infrastructure investment?...

Contingencies Fund (No. 2) Bill: Clause 1 - Temporary increase in capital limit of Contingencies Fund (11 Mar 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I would like to speak to new clause 1. First, I am grateful to the Financial Secretary for putting the record straight. It was a reflection of the fact that there was no Opposition Minister on duty. It is suboptimal to have an Opposition Minister speaking by video link: Members have no opportunity to challenge some of his statements, many of which I thought were absolutely out of order. You...

Contingencies Fund (No. 2) Bill (11 Mar 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Accounts mean accountability. Every set of accounts needs contingency lines—sometimes quite annoyingly, in my experience—but this crisis has shown the importance of having a contingency fund. I agree with my right hon. Friend the Minister: the Government have acted swiftly, decisively and with a great deal of flexibility in respect of the schemes they have rolled out. Almost every...

NHS Staff Pay (8 Mar 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Every 1% increase will cost the taxpayer £750 million, but I did not hear the shadow Health Secretary say by how much he would increase pay or indeed which taxes he would increase to pay for that. Does my hon. Friend the Minister agree that one way to increase resources for health and social care and remuneration for our care workers is by means of a German-style social care premium?

Income Tax (Charge) (3 Mar 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. As a northern businessperson, I was very pleased with the Budget statement—it was pro-business and pro-north. It was also an honest assessment of where we are today. I was quite astounded—perhaps I should not have been—by the response from the Leader of the Opposition, which reminded me of what...

Income Tax (Charge) (3 Mar 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: rose—

Business of the House (25 Feb 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am very grateful to you, Mr Speaker, for allowing me to raise this very important issue. Could we have a debate in Government time on the future of faith schools? Ampleforth school in my constituency has had problems in the past, it is fair to say, but those are now behind it. Yet there are some in the education system who are using some relatively minor issues more recently as a pretext...

Fire Safety Bill: After Clause 2 - Risk based guidance about the discharge of duties under the Fire Safety Order (24 Feb 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: The Minister mentions the time that this will take. Whatever money is put forward, it will take five or 10 years to remediate many buildings. Insurance costs have quadrupled for many residents. There is a solution on the table, provided by the Association of Residential Managing Agents, in which the Government take a top-sliced risk, which would put those premiums back down. Will he look at...

Fire Safety Bill: After Clause 2 - Risk based guidance about the discharge of duties under the Fire Safety Order (24 Feb 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I absolutely understand the spirit behind my hon. Friend’s amendment. Will he answer the point that I made earlier? How would his amendment operate if the building owner walks away? Also, does he accept that his amendment would put somebody else on the hook for the costs of remediation, not just for historical defects, but for any defects in future?

Fire Safety Bill: After Clause 2 - Risk based guidance about the discharge of duties under the Fire Safety Order (24 Feb 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: What evidence does the hon. Lady have for that claim? This is a maximum charge per unit per month of £50. If she understands how property transactions work, that is a maximum of £600 a year, which capitalises to about £12,000. I am not saying it would not affect the value of that property, but it does not make them unsaleable. It makes them far more saleable—I draw the House’s...

Fire Safety Bill: After Clause 2 - Risk based guidance about the discharge of duties under the Fire Safety Order (24 Feb 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for all the work he did as Housing Minister to resolve this issue; we met on many occasions to discuss it. Does he agree that this amendment is self-defeating in that it puts the onus for any fire safety work back on the owner, who, given debts or the cost of that work, will simply walk away? These owners have probably paid a few thousand pounds per flat to...

Fire Safety Bill: After Clause 2 - Risk based guidance about the discharge of duties under the Fire Safety Order (24 Feb 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Although I understand the point behind the hon. Member’s position—I assume she will vote for Lords amendment 4—can she answer the point I made to the Minister? What will she do when the building owners simply walk away? Where will the costs go? Does she have a solution for that? Does she not accept that this amendment is fundamentally flawed and is not the right way to achieve what she...

Government's Management of the Economy (23 Feb 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: I find this a somewhat surprising choice for an Opposition day debate, in that the Opposition—by anybody’s judgment, really—have a terrible record on the economy, and the shadow Chancellor gave no indication as to why it would be different this time. The motion says that “the last decade of UK economic policy weakened the foundations of this country’s economy”. That just makes no...

Health and Social Care: Adult Social Care Funding (23 Feb 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: What steps his Department is taking to increase funding for adult social care.

Health and Social Care: Adult Social Care Funding (23 Feb 2021)

Kevin Hollinrake: Does my hon. Friend agree that the best long-term funding solution for adult social care is a German-style social care premium?
