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,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Myanmar: Rakhine and Kachin (15 May 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: Further to the question asked by my hon. Friend the Member for Walthamstow (Stella Creasy), two weeks ago the Government proposed a draft UN statement arguing for a credible, transparent investigation into war crimes against the Rohingya and stating that those responsible must be held to account. What is the current status of that proposed statement?

Royal Assent: Private Members’ Bills: Money Resolutions (10 May 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: The Leader of the House keeps referring to the Boundary Commission’s proposals. Can she tell me when the last census was taken? Can she also tell me how many would be excluded if she continues with the boundary proposals and how that will not be seen as gerrymandering?

Council of Europe — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (18 Apr 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: It is always a pleasure to serve under your stewardship, Mr Hosie. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Gedling (Vernon Coaker) for securing this debate, whose importance is testified to by the fact that it has been attended by the leaders of the Labour and Conservative groups, and the leader of the UK delegation, as well as other hon. Members. The people that I should like to thank for...

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: If the targeted buildings were not empty, what assessment does the Prime Minister have of the casualties?

Windrush Children (Immigration Status) (16 Apr 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: I thank my right hon. Friend the Member for Tottenham (Mr Lammy) for his work and leadership on this issue. Today’s decision will cost all people from the Windrush generation, including those who are my constituents, huge amounts of money in legal fees. Will the Home Secretary set up a unit within the Home Office to deal with the cases, and refer them back to Members of Parliament to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Diplomatic Relations: Poland (27 Mar 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: Will the Minister join me in recognising the contribution made by the million Poles, particularly those who served with RAF pilots and mechanics on the Spitfire in Birmingham? Will he apologise to the community for treating the rights of EU citizens in the UK as bargaining chips during the negotiations on our exit from the European Union?

Police Station Closures: Solihull and West Midlands (6 Mar 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: Does my hon. Friend recognise that my constituency, which neighbours his, has lost more than 15 community support officers, numerous police officers and a huge number of support people due to police stations closing? That is purely the responsibility of this Government, who have failed to fund the police service properly.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: New Channel Link (20 Feb 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: It is estimated that the Foreign Secretary’s channel bridge could be built at a cost of £120 billion. He wants to build bridges, but at the same time he is pushing for a hard Brexit, pushing us further away from the European Union. Does he think that that money could instead be better spent over the next six and a half years by giving the national health service £350 million...

Foreign Affairs Committee (1 Feb 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: I commend the Chairman and the members of the Committee for producing this excellent report. Will he confirm that, in relation to intelligence and security, a permanent official should be appointed to ensure that the relationship that we have with Europe at the moment continues?

Hamed Bin Haydara (11 Jan 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for granting this urgent question. I congratulate the hon. Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman) on securing it. As he explained, the facts in this case are clear: Mr Haydara was arrested in southern Yemen in December 2013 and has suffered torture since; his family and lawyers have not been allowed to see him during that time; and he has been forced to sign a 19-page...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: EU Bilateral Relationships (9 Jan 2018)

Khalid Mahmood: My hon. Friend the Member for Warrington South (Faisal Rashid) asked a clear question but did not get a clear answer, so let me try again. The Secretary of State said that there will be “trading consequences” for the UK if we diverge from the EU tariffs and rules—what are they?

Ukraine — [Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (20 Dec 2017)

Khalid Mahmood: It is always a pleasure to serve under your stewardship, Mrs Gillan. I congratulate the right hon. Member for Maldon (Mr Whittingdale) on securing this debate. Its importance has been demonstrated by the number of speakers and the quality of contributions. The current crisis has its roots in the so-called Maidan Revolution, which began in late 2013 when crowds gathered in central...

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (1 Dec 2017)

Khalid Mahmood: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Gorton (Afzal Khan) for presenting a Bill that deals with a very important issue. I also commend the hon. Member for Telford (Lucy Allan) for the points that she made: it is a privilege to follow her. I stand here as the Member of Parliament for Birmingham Perry Barr. I want to iterate that because my constituency is being torn asunder by...

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (1 Dec 2017)

Khalid Mahmood: Yes, it does. [Interruption.] Conservative Members might find this funny, but it is not funny for those who live in the communities. We have been able to work together and the crime rates in that area of Birmingham have fallen. When I was elected in 2001 there was huge concern about that area, particularly in relation to gun crime. We lost two young women, Charlene and Letisha, in a gun...

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (1 Dec 2017)

Khalid Mahmood: I have taken the hon. Gentleman’s intervention; he must now sit down.

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (1 Dec 2017)

Khalid Mahmood: I am not going to take any more silly interventions from Conservative Members. They must realise what this means to my communities. This is about protecting those communities and building on the unity and bonds that have been formed. Conservative Members do not understand that, and neither does the Boundary Commission. I am passionate about keeping this unity, because of the work we have done...

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (1 Dec 2017)

Khalid Mahmood: The hon. Gentleman cannot have been listening to me: my point is about the connection between the communities that we have, and we want to keep them together. [Interruption.] They will not be together under the boundary changes, because they will be divided between two different local authorities.
