Recent appearances

  • Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Human Rights 5 Nov 2019

    Yesterday’s Human Rights Watch report on Saudi Arabia revealed mass arrests of women’s rights activists in the past year and alleged that many of them had been sexually assaulted, whipped and tortured in detention. Does the Minister still think the Prime Minister was right to describe Crown Prince Salman two years ago as “a remarkable young man”?
  • Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Human Rights 5 Nov 2019

    The true answer is that when it comes to Mohammed bin Salman, this Government are all too willing to look the other way. Can the Minister explain how it was possible that in July the Department for International Trade illegally authorised licences for exports of arms to the royal Saudi land forces, a full 41 days after the Foreign Office was told that those forces were operating inside Yemen?
  • Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Ukraine: Human Rights 5 Nov 2019

    To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent discussions he has had with his counterparts in the Ukraine on alleged human rights violations in that country.
