Kurdistan Region in Iraq (6 Mar 2019)

Fabian Hamilton: It is always a pleasure and a privilege to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Henry, and I congratulate the hon. Member for Filton and Bradley Stoke (Jack Lopresti) on introducing the debate. My first contact with Iraqi Kurdistan was in 2010, when I received a telephone call from the then Chief Whip of my party, asking me whether I would be willing to fly via Vienna—no direct flights even...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Armed Forces Covenant (18 Feb 2019)

Fabian Hamilton: A recent investigation has revealed that black African soldiers in the East Africa Force, formed in 1940, which encompassed thousands of troops drawn from the British colonies and current Commonwealth countries, were paid only a third of the wage received by their white counterparts. Will the Minister tell the House whether there will now be a full and comprehensive Ministry of Defence...

Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (4 Feb 2019)

Fabian Hamilton: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs to make a statement on the intermediate-range nuclear forces treaty.

Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (4 Feb 2019)

Fabian Hamilton: Thank you for granting this urgent question, Mr Speaker, and I thank the Minister for his statement. During the weekend, one of the main pillars of nuclear weapons treaties was suspended when first the United States and then Russia withdrew from the intermediate-range nuclear forces treaty. As the Minister said, it was only in October last year that I stood here asking an urgent question on...

Equitable Life (31 Jan 2019)

Fabian Hamilton: I start by paying tribute to my all-party parliamentary group co-chair, the hon. Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman), who has given an excellent introduction and who has worked very hard indeed in the nine years that he has been in the House to try to bring about the justice that we all want for the victims of the Equitable Life scandal. I am sad that, after so many years of debating the...

Equitable Life (31 Jan 2019)

Fabian Hamilton: Yes, indeed. I thank my hon. Friend and neighbour for making that point. I know Ray and Marjorie Dunn very well—they correspond with me regularly—and I know that my hon. Friend has been a champion of their case and of many other cases in his constituency. I will go on to say a bit more about how I think they should be compensated.

Equitable Life (31 Jan 2019)

Fabian Hamilton: I thank my hon. Friend for making that point. The ombudsman’s report did indeed make it clear that this was a catastrophic failure of regulation, and that the Government bore considerable responsibility for compensating those who had lost out. I will go on to say more about that in a minute. The Public Administration Committee also stated: “We share both a deep sense of frustration and...

Equitable Life (31 Jan 2019)

Fabian Hamilton: I thank the hon. and learned Lady for that intervention. The story of her constituents is reflected up and down the country, in every constituency represented in this House, and I hope that we will get some answers from the Minister at the end of this debate.

Equitable Life (31 Jan 2019)

Fabian Hamilton: Indeed, and if I am able to complete my contribution this afternoon, I will add to the hon. Gentleman’s point. At the core of the problem is the fact that Equitable Life simply could not meet the obligations that it had made for itself, because it had made no provision for guarantees against low interest rates on policies issued before 1988. It declared bonuses out of all proportion to its...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Syria (22 Jan 2019)

Fabian Hamilton: Given the huge shifts in policy on Syria emerging from the United States Administration, will the Minister provide some clarity on three related issues: when US troops will be withdrawn, what the preconditions are for that to happen and how America’s Kurdish allies will be protected after that withdrawal?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Syria: Coalition Forces (14 Jan 2019)

Fabian Hamilton: Following Turkish President Erdoğan’s refusal to meet US National Security Adviser John Bolton in Ankara last week to discuss the future of the Kurdish YPG forces fighting Daesh in Syria, is the Secretary of State worried that the withdrawal of US forces from Syria will allow Turkey to crush the Kurdish fighters, whom it regards as terrorists? Can the Government offer any further...

Journalists: International Protection (9 Jan 2019)

Fabian Hamilton: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bailey. I congratulate my right hon. Friend, if I may call him that, the Member for Maldon (Mr Whittingdale) on securing and introducing this debate. This is a timely moment to have such a debate, and in many ways it is a shame that it could not be for three hours, not the one hour. I congratulate all hon. Members who have taken part on...
