Palestinian Communities: Israeli Demolitions — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Fabian Hamilton: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Pritchard. We have had a number of debates on the middle east in recent months; the most recent was around the centenary of the Balfour declaration. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Aberavon (Stephen Kinnock) on securing this important debate. I welcome the opportunity to focus on the specific issue of demolitions, especially...

Palestinian Communities: Israeli Demolitions — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Fabian Hamilton: Sorry, I will not, because I have very little time. I hope the hon. Gentleman will forgive me. Figures from the UN Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs show that from January to early October 2017, 349 structures were demolished in the west bank, leaving 542 people displaced. It is not just homes that are being demolished; the Palestinian Authority’s Ministry of...

Palestinian Communities: Israeli Demolitions — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Fabian Hamilton: I am sorry; I cannot. I have very little time left. We visited the Bedouin settlement of Khan al-Ahmar, where we met residents and one of the Bedouin campaigners, Abu Khamis, who leads the resistance to his village being forcibly relocated to another part of the west bank with which villagers have no connection. The World Bank’s figures show that if the Palestinians were given...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Cyber-Warfare Defence (27 Nov 2017)

Fabian Hamilton: I wonder whether the Minister heard BBC Radio 4’s “Profile” yesterday on Yevgeny Prigozhin, otherwise known as Putin’s chef, and his so-called troll factory in St Petersburg. If the Minister heard it, he should be very concerned indeed about Russia’s increasing efforts at cyber-warfare and the threat of disruption it poses to our democracy and the defence of the...

Air Force (Constitution) Act 1917 — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (23 Nov 2017)

Fabian Hamilton: That’s Virgin Trains for you. But I should not advertise. On 1 April next year, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force actually coming into existence. It was the threat of war with Germany in the 1930s that resulted in the rapid expansion of the RAF. New stations were built, new aircraft were ordered and the strength of the RAF increased from 31,275 personnel in 1933...

Air Force (Constitution) Act 1917 — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (23 Nov 2017)

Fabian Hamilton: And the girls. Surely, the hon. Lady is not old enough to remember such things. I remember building the kits of Spitfires, Hurricanes and Mosquitos out of balsa wood. I think the real aircraft were built out of balsa wood as well—those Mosquitos were very flammable, but they were extremely fast. The technologies of that time enabled the RAF to be so superior, in spite of the fact that...

Fabian Hamilton: Yesterday, the Minister of State said that the Saudi blockade of Yemen did not breach international humanitarian law because it is intended to stop the smuggling of missiles to the Houthis.
