Standing Orders (Public Business) (22 Oct 2015)

Gerald Kaufman: I pay tribute to Michael Meacher, who was a good friend, an excellent Member of Parliament and a colleague from Greater Manchester. He sat alongside me in this House for 45 years. I am deeply sorry that he is dead, but I am happy that he is not present for this ghastly debate, which I think is one of the nastiest and most unpleasant I have attended in 45 years. We have before us something...

Standing Orders (Public Business) (22 Oct 2015)

Gerald Kaufman: If the hon. Gentleman will just give me a moment. I am troubled that this Government have decided to do this, because, as I said to William Hague when he first came to the House of Commons to announce this, it puts a stain on the Government. I really do think that it sullies the House of Commons. My hon. Friend the Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant), as always, made an effective speech....

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Israel and Palestine (20 Oct 2015)

Gerald Kaufman: Are not the deaths of an Eritrean immigrant who was just murdered in Beersheba by Israeli thugs, the deaths of seven Israelis and the deaths of 40 Palestinians the direct consequence of Netanyahu’s refusal to grant freedom to Palestine, the illegal wall, the illegal settlements, the 500 check points and the persistent desecration of the al-Aqsa mosque by Israeli settlers? Will the...

Bills Presented: Immigration Bill (13 Oct 2015)

Gerald Kaufman: The Home Secretary made her notorious speech in Manchester just a few minutes from my constituency. Had she come down the road, she would have seen tens of thousands of people who came under the contemptuous label she uttered this afternoon: “these people”. “These people”, of whom there are tens of thousands in my constituency, originate from south Asia, east and west Africa, the...

Bills Presented: Immigration Bill (13 Oct 2015)

Gerald Kaufman: When I go, as I no doubt shortly shall, for my flu jab, the person who gives it to me would not be regarded by many people who support this Bill as British, but services are being provided for people in this country. The work situation is going to be made more difficult, with potential employees afraid that they will be prosecuted for recruiting people illegally. I do not know whether the...

Her Majesty the Queen (9 Sep 2015)

Gerald Kaufman: I well remember the day when King George VI died and the Queen flew back from east Africa, where she was undertaking a visit. She left this country as a Princess and she came back as a Queen, and her reign over this country ever since then has been exemplary not simply to our own country, but to the all the world. The Queen manages to combine stately behaviour with thorough hard work. She...

Bill Presented — Devolution (London) Bill: Refugee Crisis in Europe (8 Sep 2015)

Gerald Kaufman: This is a grim world. Dreadful events are taking place in many countries. Innocent human beings are dying and armies and guerrillas are fighting each other throughout the world, particularly in south Asia and the middle east. Only today, we read of a 27-year-old Palestinian woman murdered by Israeli extremists, leaving her four-year-old child an orphan, yet we—not me, but the...

Bill Presented — Devolution (London) Bill: Refugee Crisis in Europe (8 Sep 2015)

Gerald Kaufman: That would be all very well if that was what other countries were doing too, but over the last few days alone the Germans have taken in 17,000 refugees. It may well be that Angela Merkel, creditably, is motivated by conscience and what the Germans did to the Jews. That is possible, but it is not discreditable. She is to be emulated. The French are taking a very great many more. Other...

Bill Presented — Devolution (London) Bill: Refugee Crisis in Europe (8 Sep 2015)

Gerald Kaufman: I do not find that reply convincing. I do not think that this Government have got the motivation that other countries in western and central Europe have. What is more, the people whom the Government are ready to take in are not enduring the present hell in Europe and on the Mediterranean; they are in camps already. I am not saying they are happy in the camps; I am not saying the conditions in...

Bill Presented — Devolution (London) Bill: Refugee Crisis in Europe (8 Sep 2015)

Gerald Kaufman: I am afraid that the phrase “morally right” is somewhat ambiguous under this Government. My hon. Friend is perfectly right: we do not know what they will do, and one of the reasons we do not know is that they do not know what they will do themselves. It is not only my city that will be very willing indeed to take in a far larger number of refugees than the Government would propose; it is...

Points of Order (7 Sep 2015)

Gerald Kaufman: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Points of Order (7 Sep 2015)

Gerald Kaufman: Mr Speaker, I wish to raise a point of order on the contempt shown towards this House by the Home Office, as evidenced by its treatment of a case that I wrote to the Home Secretary about last month. It relates to a constituent who came to see me and told me that she had moved into my constituency. She gave me her old address and her new address. I immediately wrote to the Home Secretary, on...
