Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Syria (5 Nov 2019)

Ian Austin: What assessment he has made of the effect of the US Administration's decision to withdraw support for Kurdish forces on regional stability.

Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Syria (5 Nov 2019)

Ian Austin: Mr Speaker, I am sure the whole House will want to join me in congratulating you on your election yesterday. It is fantastic to see you in the Chair. I thank the Secretary of State for his answer. Abandoning the Kurds, who led the fight against IS, has seen over 10,000 refugees fleeing to Iraqi Kurdistan on top of the 1.5 million displaced people it is already generously caring for, so will...

Health and Social Care: Hearing Aids (29 Oct 2019)

Ian Austin: If the Minister and other Members want to find out how to provide a phenomenal audiology service, they should come to Dudley and visit the clinical CCG buildings at Brierley Hill. It is an amazing service. When I was referred to them for a hearing aid, I could not believe the service. You ring up and say “When can I come in?”, and they say “When would you like to come in?” “Could I...

Health and Social Care: Hearing Aids (29 Oct 2019)

Ian Austin: I was worried that I was getting special treatment because I was the MP, but I was not; it is just an absolutely fantastic service, and I want to commend the brilliant men and women who provide it. It would be great if the Minister came to see them.

Petition - Cavendish House in Dudley Town Centre (22 Oct 2019)

Ian Austin: It is my job to stand up for the people of Dudley, so I rise to present a petition signed by 1,500 residents demanding that Dudley Council and the developers that it is working with finally get Cavendish House demolished and get on with the redevelopment of this part of the town centre. Cavendish House has stood empty for decades. It has been vandalised and is dangerous. It presents a...

Adult Learning and Vocational Skills: Metropolitan Borough of Dudley (1 Oct 2019)

Ian Austin: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate under your chairmanship, Mrs Moon. Before I begin, may I pay a big tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Stourbridge (Margot James) and thank her for securing this important debate? She is a brilliant local MP and an asset to our borough and to her party. She has worked tirelessly to improve education for school pupils, young people and adults in...

Health Infrastructure Plan (30 Sep 2019)

Ian Austin: Thanks to the brilliant chief executive, Sarah-Jane Marsh, and the fantastic team of doctors and nurses and all the support staff, the most seriously ill children from Dudley and elsewhere in the west midlands receive the most fantastic care at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. But that care is provided in buildings that are 155 years old and, as I understand it, there is no possibility of...

No-Deal Brexit: Short Positions Against the Pound (30 Sep 2019)

Ian Austin: Is not the shadow Chancellor peddling conspiracy theories about shadowy figures working with the Government to manipulate the economy for personal gain because he is a self-proclaimed Marxist who wants to undermine trust and confidence in how our economy and our country work? [Interruption.] It is no laughing matter, as that is what he is trying to do. There have, in fact, already been two...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Ian Austin: The part of the motion that I want to speak to is about politicians upholding the rule of law, and I have to say right at the outset that I think it is absolutely incredible to hear the Leader of the Opposition lecturing anybody else—[Interruption]—lecturing anybody else about observing the rule of law. [Interruption.] Labour Members have already started moaning, but they ought to listen....

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Ian Austin: The hon. Lady asks why I don’t go and sit somewhere else. I am sitting here—[Interruption.] I am standing here—[Interruption.]

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Ian Austin: I will explain why: I am standing here because I was elected—[Interruption.] Because I think—[Interruption.]

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Ian Austin: The more Labour Members interrupt, the longer it will take: I am going to make these points. The reason I have not moved is that I did not leave the Labour party to join another party; I left the Labour party to shine a spotlight on the disgrace it has become under the Leader of the Opposition’s leadership and because I regard myself as proper, decent, traditional Labour, not like the...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Ian Austin: Well, Mr Speaker, my speeches then were a lot shorter than yours.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Ian Austin: I am not going to argue that point, Mr Speaker. This is a debate about whether politicians can be trusted to obey the rule of law, and there is not a single Labour figure in the past—not a single one—who would have backed violent street protest, as the shadow Chancellor did when he called for “insurrection” to “bring down” the Government or praised rioters who he said had...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Ian Austin: I have explained why I am not going over there, but I will tell the hon. Lady this.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Ian Austin: I am here because voters in Dudley North sent me here to represent them, and none of my views have changed on any of the things I stand up for—decency in politics, the rule of law—and everybody in Dudley knew exactly what I thought of these people at the last election. And I will tell the hon. Lady this: I will make absolutely certain that she is going to have to answer to her voters for...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Ian Austin: We’ll see.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Ian Austin: Don’t worry about that. No other senior figure in the Labour party’s history would have joked about lynching a female Member of Parliament. These people do not believe in the rule of law abroad, either. They always back the wrong side, whether it is the IRA, Hamas or Hezbollah, who they describe as friends. No previous Labour leader would have supported brutal totalitarian dictatorships...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Ian Austin: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Ian Austin: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?
