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.

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (1 Dec 2017)

Khalid Mahmood: No, I am sorry, but I must conclude. What I am asking for is an understanding of what my hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Gorton has sought to do. It is important to keep such communities together. The Boundary Commission had a duty to do that—to look after communities and people. We are here discussing this matter because the Government have not provided proper registrations for...

Online Hate Speech (30 Nov 2017)

Khalid Mahmood: How would the Home Secretary respond if similar tweets to those made by President Trump were made by a Muslim leader promoting hatred? Would they be allowed into the UK?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Human Rights (21 Nov 2017)

Khalid Mahmood: In August, the American Government withheld $290 million of military and economic aid from Egypt because of its recent track record on human rights. I thought I would never say this, but will the Minister ask the Secretary of State to learn some lessons from Donald Trump and to force President Sisi to clean up his act?

Ukrainian Holodomor — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (7 Nov 2017)

Khalid Mahmood: It is a pleasure and a privilege to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Walker. I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Mid Derbyshire (Mrs Latham) for securing this important debate, in which, as has already been expressed, a huge amount of concern has been raised. She has helped to raise awareness of an issue that is generally under-discussed in this country, including in Parliament. I...

Grenfell Tower: Business of the House (19 Oct 2017)

Khalid Mahmood: I thank you, Mr Speaker, for your wise words last night about the huge number of points of order that were made. Unfortunately they have fallen on deaf ears. The Government showed disrespect not only to Parliament but to my constituents, who continue to suffer day in, day out, under the ill-thought-out universal credit scheme. Instead of trying to answer the questions herself, will the Leader...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Somalia (17 Oct 2017)

Khalid Mahmood: On behalf of the Labour party, I associate myself with the comments about the despicable act by al-Shabaab in Mogadishu. Together with our European partners, we must step up our efforts to destroy that organisation and to help Somalia to achieve lasting peace and stability. To that end, will the Minister assure the House that, whatever the terms of our exit from the European Union, our joint...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: National Trust (14 Sep 2017)

Khalid Mahmood: Alongside the National Trust, the Minister will be aware of the press coverage over the weekend about a number of high-profile charities that own seats in the Albert Hall. Trustees of those charities have been selling those seats at a very high price. That is a despicable practice; it is no way for such charities to act in a modern society. Will the Minister support the Charity Commission in...

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Khalid Mahmood: I thank the hon. Member for Shrewsbury and Atcham (Daniel Kawczynski) for securing this debate. Before I go any further, I pay my condolences to the parents of Dagmara Przybysz, who was bullied and suffered a racist attack. She is not the only person who has been treated in that way. A significant number of cases of racist treatment of Poles have led to injuries and deaths. I wholly condemn...

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Climate Change (11 Jul 2017)

Khalid Mahmood: Following Donald Trump’s isolation on the issue of the Paris agreement at last week’s G20 summit, and his further postponement of his visit to the UK, I ask the Secretary of State a simple question: do the Government still regard President Trump as the leader of the free world? If so, how do they rate the job he is doing, as a mark out of 10?
