Russia and the Council of Europe — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (18 Jul 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: It is always a pleasure to serve under your stewardship, Mr Howarth. This important debate, secured by the hon. Member for Henley (John Howell), has roused strong passions and concerns about the significant issues of human rights and civil liberties. The background is that, after the Russian annexation of Crimea in 2014, the Council imposed sanctions on Russia, and Russian delegates’...

Russia and the Council of Europe — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (18 Jul 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: I think the hon. Member for Henley, who secured this excellent debate, made the point—and it is the essential point that I am trying to make as well—that if we completely isolate Russia, we will not achieve some of those objectives. So I leave this to the talents of the Minister, who is more than able to negotiate. He should particularly take into account the relationship Germany...

Nord Stream 2 (17 Jul 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: It is always a pleasure to serve under your stewardship, Sir Edward. I thank the hon. Member for The Wrekin (Mark Pritchard) for raising this important debate. It is a much-needed debate addressing the security of the whole of eastern Europe and the region around there, particularly the fears those countries have regarding the current security climate. The Nord Stream 2 line will have a...

Foreign Affairs Committee (12 Jul 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: I thank my hon. Friend for presenting the report, the importance of which is highlighted by the more than 100,000 people who were killed at Srebrenica. That we continue to concentrate on the region is fundamentally important, and my hon. Friend outlined issues relating to rights, corruption, democracy and many other important topics. Through him, I want to ask the Minister about the continued...

Counter-Daesh Update (3 Jul 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: Further to the question of the right hon. Member for New Forest West (Sir Desmond Swayne), I want to press the Defence Secretary on the issue of those returning to the UK who are not currently on the security list. What efforts have been made, in conjunction with Border Force, to monitor the people we have no knowledge of?

Select Committee on Justice: Russian Federation Activity (28 Jun 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: It is always a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bone. I thank the hon. Member for Isle of Wight (Mr Seely) for his detailed introduction; he is clearly very close to the issue, particularly so in his previous life, before he came to this place. He shows a huge and continuing interest in security matters. I take issue, however, with his mention of a member of the Labour...

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

Khalid Mahmood: Thank you very much, Mr Speaker. We are all concerned about the impact of this result on the human rights of those journalists, political prisoners and academics who are being held in prison, and on press freedoms and the rule of law inside Turkey. The Minister has described our close connections with Turkey. As a first step, have the Government urged President Erdoğan to lift the state...

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill: Committee Stage (19 Jun 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: Perry Barr, not Ladywood.

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill: Committee Stage (19 Jun 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: To follow the Leader of the House’s reasoning about what this Bill will cost the public purse, what other Bills is she considering dropping to save money?

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill: Committee Stage (19 Jun 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: The Government have wilfully plucked a figure out of the air, have manipulated the electoral register and taken 2.5 million people off it. The constituencies have no basis, so the Bill of my hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Gorton (Afzal Khan)—[Interruption.] If the Parliamentary Secretary, Cabinet Office, the hon. Member for Norwich North (Chloe Smith), Conservative Members...

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill: Committee Stage (19 Jun 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker; I have gained further knowledge. My hon. Friend’s Bill tries to address this issue. Does my hon. Friend the Member for Walsall South (Valerie Vaz) agree that this is not about gerrymandering or taking powers away from this House, but about restoring those powers?

Backbench Business: UK-Romanian Relations — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: It is always a pleasure to serve under your stewardship, Mr Betts. I thank the hon. Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman) for bringing this important matter to our attention, particularly at this time. One thing that he said slightly perplexed me, and that was his notion of a smooth Brexit. I hope he means something constructive, and that he will vote for such a smooth Brexit in the Chamber...

Foreign Affairs Committee (14 Jun 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: I thank Committee members and the Chair for putting an excellent and comprehensive report together. Despite the expulsions that have taken place, is he comfortable that there are sufficient consular staff to meet the needs? If not, will he have discussions with the FCO team to ensure that there are? I hope that the England team will do excellently and come back with the cup.

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: It is a pleasure as always to serve under your stewardship, Mr Gapes, particularly given your great knowledge of foreign affairs and your former chairmanship of the Foreign Affairs Committee. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds North West (Alex Sobel) for securing this debate, which has been an emotional and personal one. I think he wanted to have it elsewhere, but because he was not...

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. To clarify, I was not saying that such people represent Poland as a nation. I went further to clarify the role of the Polish people against the Nazis and the actions they took. In that sense, I fully agree with him. The rally was also attended by Tommy Robinson, the former leader of the English Defence League, who is in prison at the moment....

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: I agree with the hon. Gentleman about German responsibility for reparations, but before we get to the issue of any payments there has to be recognition of the lands that were taken away from people and the communities that lived there. As my hon. Friend the Member for Bassetlaw said, those places are now empty with no Jews living there. That is their hereditary right. On 12 March my right...

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Private Members’ Bills: Money Resolutions (21 May 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Harwich and North Essex (Mr Jenkin). I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Gorton (Afzal Khan) for securing a debate on this very important issue after the House voted overwhelmingly in support of his private Member’s Bill. It is unfortunate we have had to have this debate because of the Government’s wrongful...

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Private Members’ Bills: Money Resolutions (21 May 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: More wishful thinking, rather than trying to address the question.

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Private Members’ Bills: Money Resolutions (21 May 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: No. The right hon. Gentleman cannot tell me how many people have been appointed. He cannot tell me the cost of the people who have been appointed. Members of Parliament have a specific role. Unlike Members of the other place, we serve the interest of our constituents and we look after their needs. Our constituents come to us at our surgeries. My constituents continually come to my office,...
