Khalid Mahmood: Is the Foreign Secretary not concerned that the further involvement of tribal groups and others such as the Muslim Brotherhood and some al-Qaeda groups will lead to further conflict, as we have already seen in Libya? Is not the best way forward to engage with the 34-member group that Saudi Arabia is putting together, with our coalition, to have the people and troops to deal with this problem...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Airports Capacity (14 Dec 2015)

Business of the House: ISIL in Syria (2 Dec 2015)

Khalid Mahmood: First, I want to welcome the Prime Minister’s use of the name Daesh for this barbaric group of people who have absolutely no connection at all to Islam, my faith—as has been affirmed by the Grand Imam Sheikh el-Tayeb of al-Azhar University in only the last few days. That ensures that those people are not referred to in any way as Muslims; nor should they be seen as such. Since...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Paris Terrorist Attacks (16 Nov 2015)

Khalid Mahmood: I wish to add my condolences, and to affirm that these people are not of my faith and should not be regarded as such. I pay tribute to our police and security services for the continued excellent work that they do to keep us safe. I acknowledge the new funding that has been announced and the Home Secretary’s comments on Islamophobia, but will she look at the Border Force staffing that...

Hospital Parking Charges (Exemption for Carers) Bill (30 Oct 2015)

Khalid Mahmood: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Burnley (Julie Cooper) on this important and hugely needed Bill. Unfortunately, owing to the assassins on the Government Benches—one of them has just left the Chamber—more than two hours of time has, bizarrely, been taken up, and I do not think that I will be able to go into all the important issues that I wished to raise. People are...

Hospital Parking Charges (Exemption for Carers) Bill (30 Oct 2015)

Khalid Mahmood: I wholly agree with my hon. Friend. The services that carers provide are really beyond the call of duty and any compensation they might receive would not account for that. They provide huge support to nursing staff pressed by the shortages that currently exist in our hospitals. The huge amount of support and love they provide comes at great financial cost, and that is why I support the Bill....

Hospital Parking Charges (Exemption for Carers) Bill (30 Oct 2015)

Khalid Mahmood: I am not going to give way to anybody on the Government Benches. They have wasted enough time, so I will not indulge them. We have to support this important Bill, because it would provide support to the people who pay in a huge amount to society. I was glad to hear Conservative Members talking about using public transport. The problem with public transport is that services do not run as well...

Hospital Parking Charges (Exemption for Carers) Bill (30 Oct 2015)

Khalid Mahmood: If the hon. Gentleman believes in what he has just said—I agree that most of the people he has listed should be included—will he not propose an amendment or another Bill to say that all those people are important and that we should help everyone we can who has an issue with these horrendous charges?

Hospital Parking Charges (Exemption for Carers) Bill (30 Oct 2015)

West Midlands Police (Funding) — [Mr David Crausby in the Chair] (9 Sep 2015)

Khalid Mahmood: It is always a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Crausby, and that is particularly true in this important debate secured by my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Northfield (Richard Burden). He outlined precisely the effect, and the unfairness, of the cuts that are to be made after the so-called consultation. I hope that the Minister will look at the considerable number of...

Khalid Mahmood: Will the Home Secretary give way?

Bill Presented — Devolution (London) Bill: Refugee Crisis in Europe (8 Sep 2015)

Khalid Mahmood: Does the Home Secretary not agree that rather than just looking at the borders of Europe, we need to go further into the Mediterranean? That is where people are being exploited and put in unseaworthy vessels. People, including young people and women, are suffocating to death. We need to take action there, at that point, to stop the loss of life, rather than leaving them to try to travel here...

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — amendment of the law (8 Jul 2015)

Khalid Mahmood: Like the right hon. Member for Wokingham (John Redwood), I congratulate the hon. Member for Louth and Horncastle (Victoria Atkins) on her maiden speech. She replaces the former Father of the House, who held the attention of the House whenever he spoke. I am sure she will follow in his footsteps and do that, too. Presenting the Budget today, the Chancellor was smug, self-confident and...

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — amendment of the law (8 Jul 2015)

Khalid Mahmood: I agree, but if the right hon. Gentleman is saying that there will be no effect on our financial institutions or on us as a nation, the people to whom he gives financial advice should have another look at that. The Chancellor spoke about the wage freeze in the public sector for at least another four years. This is a real-terms reduction for those very important people who work in our...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Tunisia, and European Council (29 Jun 2015)

Khalid Mahmood: I want to join the Prime Minister, my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Camberwell and Peckham (Ms Harman) and Members from across the House in paying our condolences to the families of the people caught up in the barbaric attack on the holiday resort in Tunisia. I want very quickly to mention to two issues. The first is about recognising as Muslims those in the Daesh group. These...

Opposition Day — [2nd Allotted Day]: Skills and Growth (17 Jun 2015)

Khalid Mahmood: It is a pleasure to see you back in the Chair, Mr Deputy Speaker. I congratulate you on your re-election. I also congratulate the hon. Member for East Dunbartonshire (John Nicolson) on his maiden speech. I was interested to hear what he said about his constituency. In terms of policy based on his party’s mandate, I believe that the Government should look at giving Scotland full fiscal...
