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 wants...

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 persistence....

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 deal with?

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 a week?...

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...
