Domestic Abuse Victims and Family Courts — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (18 Jul 2018)

Joan Ryan: Could I ask the Minister to finish her speech a couple of minutes before our time is up to allow the mover of the motion to wind up the debate?

Domestic Abuse Victims and Family Courts — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (18 Jul 2018)

Joan Ryan: Order. I am sure everybody is aware of the time. I intend to start calling the Front Benchers at 3.40. If the three remaining speakers limit their remarks to about seven or eight minutes, everybody should be able to speak for a decent amount of time.

Palestinian Education System — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Joan Ryan: I beg to move, That this House has considered incitement in the Palestinian education system. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Christopher. The conflict between Israel and the Palestinians provokes strong passions and much disagreement on all sides of the debate. Wherever we stand, I hope we can all agree that to bring that tragic conflict to a close, it is vital that...

Palestinian Education System — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Joan Ryan: I cannot but agree with the hon. Gentleman. There are some terrible examples of what appears in the textbooks, which I will come to shortly. Given Britain’s long-standing advocacy of the two-state solution, I believe it is appropriate for us to provide aid to the Palestinian Authority, but as is recognised in the memorandum of understanding between the Department for International...

Palestinian Education System — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Joan Ryan: I do not believe it is compatible with seeking co-existence; to warp the minds of young children is a serious form of child abuse.

Palestinian Education System — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Joan Ryan: For the last time, I think, yes I will.

Palestinian Education System — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Joan Ryan: My hon. Friend is right. There is no question that co-existence projects work. They are crucial in building that constituency for peace and in demonstrating that Palestinians and Israelis can live alongside each other.

Palestinian Education System — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Joan Ryan: I will give way one more time, to the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon). That is going to be it.

Palestinian Education System — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Joan Ryan: Absolutely. It is completely indefensible that officially sanctioned textbooks used in school and sanctioned by the Palestinian Authority contain material that is really harmful to children. It certainly does not bode well for building peace.

Palestinian Education System — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Joan Ryan: I will make a little bit of progress and will come back to my hon. Friend—I do not want to leave out the last person who wants to intervene. There are many instances where the PA have clearly and repeatedly flouted the principles I referred to. Perhaps most egregious is its payment of salaries to those who commit terrorist attacks—a truly grotesque policy that further incentivises...

Palestinian Education System — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Joan Ryan: Thank you for your guidance, Sir Christopher. I shall abide by it. Children of 11 are told that martyrdom and jihad are the “most important meanings of life”. They are taught that “drinking the cup of bitterness with glory is much sweeter than a pleasant long life accompanied by humiliation”. To ram home that terrible lesson, martyrs such as Dalal Mughrabi—who...

Palestinian Education System — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Joan Ryan: I am not making an argument for the Israeli Government. I have stood on a platform with Benjamin Netanyahu and said to his face—I think my hon. Friend knows this, because I have said it before—that I do not agree with settlement building and that I think there should be a settlement freeze. I think it is a barrier to peace. I do not think it is the only barrier and I do not think...

Govia Thameslink/Rail Electrification (3 Jul 2018)

Joan Ryan: People in Enfield who aspire to get on a train are running up and down the platform in the mornings, but the trains are full by the time they reach us, because of the delays and cancellations. Yesterday, almost half of all trains were either delayed or cancelled, and on 15 July we get our third timetable in two months. This cannot be acceptable. The Minister is a sight too relaxed for my...

The Minister for Women and Equalities Was Asked: Topical Questions (28 Jun 2018)

Joan Ryan: Will the Minister confirm whether the Government will commit further funding to the revenge porn helpline, which received over 6,000 calls between 2015 and 2017?

Backbench Business: Immigration Detention (Victims of Torture) — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (14 Jun 2018)

Joan Ryan: I thank hon. Members who have taken part in today’s debate. My hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Yardley (Jess Phillips) provided moving and powerful examples from her own experience. She and my hon. Friend the Member for Stretford and Urmston (Kate Green) fleshed out the human cost of the policy since 2016 and, I think, its cost going forward. I am grateful to the SNP...

Backbench Business: Immigration Detention (Victims of Torture) — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (14 Jun 2018)

Joan Ryan: The Minister is being very generous, as she was in Committee. Did she give any consideration to simply going back to the definition that we had prior to the adults at risk policy, while we waited for the Shaw review? It was surely in her gift or that of her officials to talk to Stephen Shaw and ascertain roughly when the re-review might be available. Clearly he was very close to making it...

Backbench Business: Immigration Detention (Victims of Torture) — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (14 Jun 2018)

Joan Ryan: What the Minister has just said beggars belief in the light of the statistic mentioned by my hon. Friend the Member for Streatham—

Backbench Business: Immigration Detention (Victims of Torture) — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (14 Jun 2018)

Joan Ryan: Stretford and Urmston. Streatham is not very far away, is it? You would think, with my accent, I would have been able to get that right—I do apologise. My hon. Friend talked about 56% of people being released back into the community. There clearly is a problem. It is not as the Minister says. I do not understand what confidence we can have if she cannot take account of that. Could she...

Backbench Business: Immigration Detention (Victims of Torture) — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (14 Jun 2018)

Joan Ryan: That is a really interesting statistic—56%—and I thank my hon. Friend for making such a powerful contribution to the debate. Let us remind ourselves: Home Office policy is that people should be detained only in exceptional circumstance. How can that be being applied if 56% are then released?

Backbench Business: Immigration Detention (Victims of Torture) — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (14 Jun 2018)

Joan Ryan: I beg to move, That this House has considered immigration detention of victims of torture and other vulnerable people. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Sharma. I thank the Backbench Business Committee for granting the debate and hon. Members from all parts of the House who supported the application. I also thank the 131 Members who signed my early-day motion on...
