Bahrain — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (11 Sep 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: It is a pleasure to serve with you in the Chair, Ms McDonagh. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Hammersmith (Andy Slaughter) not only on achieving this debate but on detailing forensically, as he always does, the many concerns he has—that we should all have—about human rights violations in Bahrain. He has always been a champion of the oppressed, wherever they may be in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Yemen (4 Sep 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: Last week’s United Nations expert panel report on Yemen completed before the bus bombing of 9 August said that the Saudi coalition was routinely ignoring its own no-strike list of 30,000 civilian sites. Surely that is the very definition of indiscriminate bombing. In light of that, how can the Government continue to claim that there is no clear risk that the arms we sell to Riyadh are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Leaving the EU: Defence and Military Aerospace Industry (9 Jul 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: Major defence companies are clearly deeply concerned about the effect of this Government’s Brexit policy on their operations in the UK. Rolls-Royce has started to move some functions to Germany while the chief executive of Airbus has said that the Government have “no clue on how to execute Brexit without severe harm.” Given that the man who was meant to be leading the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Israel and Palestine (26 Jun 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: It has been widely reported that the Foreign Secretary intends to convene an imminent summit with Jared Kushner and other interested parties to lay out the red lines that the Government will apply when evaluating the Trump Administration’s Israel-Palestine peace plan. Will the Minister of State tell the House in clear terms today what those red lines are?

Defence Fire and Rescue Project: Capita (21 Jun 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on the awarding of the defence fire and rescue contract to Capita.

Defence Fire and Rescue Project: Capita (21 Jun 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: I am extremely grateful to you, Mr Speaker, for granting this urgent question. I was very eager to hear the Minister’s justification for awarding such a crucial contract for the defence fire and rescue service to Capita. I think that we would all agree that it would be extremely worrying if a situation were to arise whereby this contract could not be delivered or was not delivered to...

Yemen (11 Jun 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for granting this urgent question. I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Leicester East (Keith Vaz), the chair of the all-party group on Yemen, on securing it. There is a bitter sadness in the fact that, less than three weeks ago, we were welcoming the publication of the all-party group’s latest report, a blueprint for bringing about a peaceful...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (11 Jun 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: The review of the defence fire and rescue service has been running in various forms for 10 years now. With neither of the final two bidders having exactly a glowing past record, does the Secretary of State share my concern that if the contract is outsourced and we see a repeat of the Carillion situation, the consequences could be disastrous?

Turkey (7 Jun 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Enfield North (Joan Ryan) on securing this debate, together with her co-sponsors. As she said, it has been six years since we debated Turkey in the Chamber, although it is only 15 months since the Westminster Hall debate, in which I was also privileged to speak. I recall my right hon. Friend saying in that debate that it was time that we had...

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (24 May 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Sir David, as well as that of Sir Henry, who has now left the Chamber. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield, Heeley (Louise Haigh) on securing the debate and on introducing it so passionately and clearly. She made it clear that the situation for 1.8 million Gazans is inhumane, and one cannot but agree. She also pointed out our...

UK Relations with Qatar — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (23 May 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: I thank all those who have contributed this afternoon, and as ever it is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Sir Henry. I congratulate the hon. Member for Southend West (Sir David Amess) on securing the debate—it is timely for us to discuss Britain’s relations with Qatar. He said that he visited Qatar for the second time in February and met the Emir. He also passed on...

UK Relations with Qatar — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (23 May 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: I thank the hon. and gallant Gentleman for that contribution. That danger is always there, but from what I have seen myself and from speaking to people from Qatar—people within the Foreign Ministry and visiting dignitaries here in London—I have the impression that the Qataris want to become a beacon of openness and liberalism in the region, rather than falling into the hands of...

Transport Emissions: Urban Areas: Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe (22 May 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: Thank you for granting this urgent question, Mr Speaker. It is deeply regrettable that we need to be standing here again asking an urgent question on the plight of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe. It was only in November last year that the shadow Foreign Secretary—my right hon. Friend the Member for Islington South and Finsbury (Emily Thornberry)—tabled an urgent question on the case...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Iran Nuclear Deal (15 May 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: Last July, at a conference of the Iranian resistance movement in Paris attended by a number of Conservative Members, John Bolton announced that the Iranian regime is “not going to change…the only solution is to change the regime…And that’s why, before 2019, we…will celebrate in Tehran!” Now that Mr Bolton is President Trump’s national security...

Backbench Business - Banking Misconduct and the Fcabackbench Business: Libyan-sponsored IRA Terrorism (10 May 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: I congratulate the hon. Member for Tewkesbury (Mr Robertson) on securing this debate. I also thank every Member who has contributed with such knowledge and such sympathy for the victims of IRA bombings, especially those bombings that were supplied by explosives from Libya. This afternoon we have heard many tragic and moving cases of victims who have still received no compensation, while they...

Backbench Business - Banking Misconduct and the Fcabackbench Business: Libyan-sponsored IRA Terrorism (10 May 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: I thank the hon. Gentleman—the hon. and gallant Gentleman—for that important contribution. Over 3,500 people died in the troubles over many decades. To quote the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee report of 2017: “There is no doubt that the weapons, funding, training, and explosives that Colonel Gaddafi provided to the Provisional IRA over the course of 25 years both...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (27 Mar 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: Next Tuesday will mark two years since Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was detained in Iran on trumped-up charges, separated from her young child and thrown into jail. What steps is the Foreign Secretary currently taking to obtain her release so that she does not spend yet another year separated from her family?

Labour Reforms: Qatar (14 Mar 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Sir Christopher. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Nottingham North (Alex Norris) on introducing this debate. He is well known on the Labour Benches and I think throughout the House for his defence of trade union rights and for his trade union background. He has a brilliant record on that, and he is now bringing those skills and that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Pay and Retention (5 Mar 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: Last week, we saw how our armed forces stepped up to help with the chaos caused by the very challenging weather conditions. Does the Minister not agree that these brave men and women therefore deserve more than a 1% pay rise—it is, in fact, a real-terms pay cut—and will he make that clear to the pay review body?

Backbench Business: Freedom of Religion or Belief — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (1 Mar 2018)

Fabian Hamilton: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship this afternoon, Sir David. I join my colleagues in congratulating the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon), my good friend—I hope he does not mind my calling him that—over many years, who was able to table the debate, and in acknowledging the Backbench Business Committee for allowing us the time this afternoon. It is rare to...
