Kevin Hollinrake: The Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill and the powers within it are not intended to remove workers’ rights and protections. The Bill is an enabling Act.

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 8 - Disqualification for persistent breaches of companies legislation: GB (24 Jan 2023)

Kevin Hollinrake: As the right hon. Lady knows, new clause 15, which we tabled today, is based on some of the debate we had and the ideas she brought forward in Committee. So I say to her that she should keep bringing forward the ideas, and we will certainly consider them. The Companies Act already requires traded companies to maintain up-to-date lists of their shareholders and report any changes in...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 8 - Disqualification for persistent breaches of companies legislation: GB (24 Jan 2023)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am sorry, but I must conclude. I do apologise. To conclude there, I thank all the Members who have spoken in today’s debate for their insights, and I am sorry if I have not spoken to their points directly. I call on the House to support the Government amendments, and I hope that the explanations I have given provide reassurance that their amendments are not needed to make the Bill and...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 8 - Disqualification for persistent breaches of companies legislation: GB (24 Jan 2023)

Kevin Hollinrake: It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Paisley and Renfrewshire North (Gavin Newlands), who referenced many of our debates in Committee. I thank hon.

Let me first say that any reports of the death of my ambition in this area have been greatly...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 8 - Disqualification for persistent breaches of companies legislation: GB (24 Jan 2023)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am always happy to have a meeting with the hon. Lady—we met only last week to discuss her amendments and the Government amendments. Some of the things in her new clause are already reported to Parliament, such as the number of businesses struck off the register. It is important that we do not duplicate in this legislation things that are already being done, but I am always happy to have a...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 8 - Disqualification for persistent breaches of companies legislation: GB (24 Jan 2023)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am happy to have a meeting with the hon. Lady to discuss the different things that she thinks should be reported. Clearly, the annual report should be comprehensive and cover many of the matters that she raises. Much has been made about creating duties and obligations for Companies House. As my hon. Friend the Member for Huntingdon (Mr Djanogly) said, we should not assume that these things...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 8 - Disqualification for persistent breaches of companies legislation: GB (24 Jan 2023)

Kevin Hollinrake: I cannot give a fixed timescale for the regulations, but clearly the quicker we get the Bill to Royal Assent, the better. I am sure that the hon. Lady will assist with that; she has been very co-operative in the past, despite the lengthy debates we have had about various matters. The Opposition’s new clause 16 would require the report to set out the number of fines issued by the registrar....

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 8 - Disqualification for persistent breaches of companies legislation: GB (24 Jan 2023)

Kevin Hollinrake: As the hon. Lady knows, the unique identifier will not be public, because we think that could increase the chances of fraud. It is already possible to search the Companies House database to a certain extent; for example, if she searches my name, my previous directorships all link together. We intend to improve the database by linking the hon. Lady’s name, year and month of birth, address...
