Kevin Hollinrake: With the leave of the House, I have a few final comments. The shadow Minister asked about the Capture software that was used prior to the Horizon software. The right hon.

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Funerals: Licensing (23 May 2024)

Kevin Hollinrake: The Government currently has no plans to introduce a licensing scheme for funeral directors. Funeral directors are subject to existing consumer rights legislation.

It said that such a measure would not significantly diminish the incentive, and the...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill: After Clause 308 - Secondary ticketing facilities (21 May 2024)

All those things have very tight controls...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill: After Clause 308 - Secondary ticketing facilities (21 May 2024)

Kevin Hollinrake: I beg the hon. Member’s leave, but can I draw his attention to the comments of the CMA before the Bill Committee?
