European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Mike Gapes: Two years ago, we were told that the EU’s unity would shatter, that we would be able to pick off individual countries and get a deal, and that the German manufacturing industry would change the German Government’s position. The reality is that the European Union has kept a consistent position throughout the negotiations. Why? Contrary to the belief of the right-wing Rexiteers and...

Mike Gapes: A constituent has written to me as follows: “I grew up in Northern Ireland before moving to London in 1982…I fell pregnant in 1997. My child would have been very much loved and wanted, but a scan revealed that he had Edward’s syndrome, a chromosomal abnormality incompatible with life. I was ably supported by the NHS in London through the subsequent weeks of decision and...

Airports National Policy Statement (5 Jun 2018)

Mike Gapes: At last! After years being wasted under the coalition Government, we now at last have a Government who are taking a grip on this issue. This decision should have been taken years ago. With Crossrail coming, my constituents in east London and people in Essex and Kent will greatly benefit from this decision, and I welcome it.

Gaza Border Violence (15 May 2018)

Mike Gapes: At times such as this it is easy to despair and say that there is no solution, but surely what is needed by the Palestinians captured by the Hamas leadership in Gaza, and by the Israelis captured by their dysfunctional political system is lasting peace, and that can come about only if there is a reactivation of the plan put forward in 2002 by Saudi Arabia and adopted by the Arab League. What...

Iran Nuclear Deal (9 May 2018)

Mike Gapes: The Prime Minister and the Foreign Secretary have both praised the joint efforts that have been made with our French and German partners.

Health and Social Care: Access to Social Care (8 May 2018)

Mike Gapes: Age UK says that 1.2 million older people have unmet social care needs. Is it not time that we thought about integration in a practical way, and where we have acute hospitals with land next to them, such as King George Hospital in my constituency, we start to build sheltered accommodation or intermediate care on those sites so that people can easily be transferred into and out of the beds,...

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Mike Gapes: I have been a Member of the House for 26 years and I want to begin by talking about my experience with a Conservative Government when I was first elected. In those days, Ministers were willing to meet Members personally when they had a case of somebody in difficulty. I remember a young woman who had won a newspaper competition for a free holiday in Morocco with her husband, but who had the...

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Mike Gapes: Has the hon. and learned Lady seen the Financial Times today? There is an article about the test of English for international communication, which reveals that 35,000 people have had their status as students in this country revoked.

Syria (30 Apr 2018)

Mike Gapes: Last week, members of the Foreign Affairs Committee were in New York for discussions with the United Nations Secretary-General, members of the Security Council and other UN member states.

The Secretary of State referred to the 12 Russian vetoes....

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Mike Gapes: The Prime Minister referred to the actions of previous Governments. May I remind her and my right hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) that it was a Labour Government, with Robin Cook as Foreign Secretary, that carried out airstrikes in Iraq under Operation Desert Fox in 1998 without a UN resolution, that it was a Labour Government that restored President Kabbah in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Diplomatic Service: Funding (27 Mar 2018)

Mike Gapes: Wait till you hear what I have got to say! There will be no Brexit dividend. The question is how we will be able to find the resources for these posts around the world, where we will have to do more bilateral work, rather than less. Is that not the reality? Is it not a fact that the Foreign Affairs Committee’s recent report pointed out that half the 50 so-called improved posts were...
