Electoral Commission Investigation: Vote Leave (17 Jul 2018)

David Lammy: We have in our democracy clear rules so that we do not exercise, or see the exercise, of undue influence. For that reason, certainly in the last decade, we have had two elections declared void—in South Thanet and Oldham East and Saddleworth. Can the Minister confirm whether the Government can declare this referendum void on the basis of the evidence that we have been provided with by...

Visit of President Trump: Policing (12 Jul 2018)

David Lammy: “Together against Trump” has organised an important protest against this most divisive global figure for tomorrow afternoon. It is usual for those who gather at Portland Place to be able to hear speeches. Why on this occasion has the Metropolitan Police said, unusually, that it will not allow a stand, which would enable those gathered to hear people speak before they begin their march?

Immigration: Pausing the Hostile Environment (12 Jul 2018)

David Lammy: (Urgent Question): May I ask the Minister of State if she will make a statement on the decision to pause the hostile environment and to slip that information out during the World cup last night?

Immigration: Pausing the Hostile Environment (12 Jul 2018)

David Lammy: It is important to put on record the fact that immigration has brought considerable benefits to this country. We saw last night in England’s World Cup team 11 of the players from black or mixed-race heritage backgrounds. That is a tribute to the modern diversity of this country. When the Secretary of State took up his position a few weeks ago, he said that he wanted a decent system, a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Youth Justice System (10 Jul 2018)

David Lammy: I, too, welcome the new Minister to his position. May I recommend to him the Lammy review? In it he will see that there is tremendous concern that the youth prison population now is 43% from a black or ethnic minority background. Will he look closely at its recommendations and can I meet him soon?

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

David Lammy: When the Prime Minister took office she said that she wanted to bring the country back together, and I believe that she had the will of most people in this House and the country. Some 69% of British people now think that Brexit is going badly, her Cabinet is horribly split, the Government are split, the nation is more divided than ever, and our people will be poorer as a consequence of this...

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

David Lammy: I hesitate to interrupt the hon. Gentleman. I am hugely appreciative of the fact that he has put on the record the link between Scotland and the Caribbean region. I took a DNA test not so long ago and it turns out that I, too, am a Scot. I am very well aware of my connections to the Blair family, and so potentially a former Prime Minister, and also to the Laing family, and so potentially a...

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

David Lammy: For, I hope, very obvious reasons, I am grateful for the opportunity to participate in the debate. In so doing, I think of my parents, who are no longer with us, of my brothers and sisters, and of so many aunts and uncles; and I think of the life that we all lived in Dongola Road, Tottenham, in the 1970s and 1980s. I mention Dongola Road because at the top of the road lived another family,...

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

David Lammy: On Friday, I will attend the funeral of Tanesha Melbourne-Blake, who was shot dead at the age of 17 in my constituency on Easter bank holiday Monday. It was her death that triggered a national conversation about why 67 young people have lost their lives in our capital city. It is important to say that many of those young people who have lost their lives are black-British in their description....

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

David Lammy: Given the time, I will not give way. When asked why crime had risen, the Met Commissioner said, “We think that stop and search has had some bearing on this.” Let us not have another argument about the merits of stop and search when we reached cross-party consensus on it under the current Prime Minister. We should of course bring in intelligence-led stop and search where there has...

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

David Lammy: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

David Lammy: I hesitate to interrupt the hon. Gentleman, but I want to put on record that the 2011 riots happened during that period. Against the backdrop of the riots, many of those young people were put in prison and that reduced the numbers, because the whole subject was about gang violence—he forgets all the media coverage at that time.

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

David Lammy: In 2012.

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

David Lammy: I really want us to get back to a serious tone. I am grateful to the Minister for specifically mentioning the cocaine market. Will he say something about our Border Force? Will he also say something about resources for the National Crime Agency? He will understand that the average black teenager in Tottenham barely knows where Colombia is and certainly does not have the means to organise...

Tower Block Cladding (21 May 2018)

David Lammy: I have just come from the Grenfell inquiry, which began this morning. One of the survivors said to me, “If it was thought that combustible cladding was responsible for the fire and it had to come down, why is not banned?” Can the Secretary of State give some timetable on when combustible cladding will finally be banned?

Grenfell Tower (16 May 2018)

David Lammy: I am very grateful to have a few minutes to speak in this debate, and because it is only a few minutes I want to focus on Khadija Saye, who died on the 20th floor. My interest in this is not wholly impartial, because Khadija worked for my wife as an intern. She was a beautiful 24-year-old woman with her life before her. She was really going to emerge as a fantastic artist and had already done...

Grenfell Tower Inquiry — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (14 May 2018)

David Lammy: I dedicate my contribution today to my friends Khadija Saye and Mary Mende, who lost their lives in Grenfell Tower. This debate does nothing really to convey their lives and their memories. I am sure everybody else whose friends or loved ones were victims will feel that. Nevertheless, I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Kensington (Emma Dent Coad) on her outstanding speech. I...

Grenfell Tower Inquiry — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (14 May 2018)

David Lammy: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. How can it be that properties are available, and as a country we are unable to bring to bear both the state and the local authority to get those homes and house those people? Why is it that, a year on, my hon. Friend has to make that point as well as she has made it? We have to ask whether the inquiry for the people who were failed before the fire, and who...

Grenfell Tower Inquiry — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (14 May 2018)

David Lammy: I accept what the hon. Gentleman says. I would simply say that we should have had those panel members right from the beginning. That was the evidence of Macpherson, when John Sentamu and Richard Stone were so important to the community. We should have those panel members now. Quite understandably, the community will want to get into the detail of who those panel members are, and how they can...

Windrush (2 May 2018)

David Lammy: Will the hon. Lady give way?
