Palestinian Children and Israeli Military Detention (7 Feb 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: I was last in the west bank in November—I have declared that in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests—and I visited a family whose young son had been seized in the middle of the night and detained. He was in administrative detention. Does my hon. Friend agree that, in one respect, things have got worse since our last debate, because Israel has started using...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Isa Qassim (7 Feb 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, whether he has made representations to the Government of Bahrain on the house arrest and revocation of citizenship of prominent Shiite cleric, Sheikh Isa Qassim; and if he will make a statement.

NHS Winter Crisis: Grenfell Tower (5 Feb 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: At the last Housing, Communities and Local Government Question Time, my hon. Friend the Member for City of Durham (Dr Blackman-Woods) and I both asked about the review of technical documents. We did not get an answer. To be clear, we are talking not about the Hackitt review, which is doing some good work on the wider issue, but about individual types of cladding and what document B says. We...

NHS Winter Crisis (5 Feb 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: The programme to reduce acute hospital services and close blue-light A&Es, like that at Charing Cross Hospital, is about to undergo its fourth change of name in five years—“Shaping a healthier future,” “sustainability and transformation,” “accountable care,” and “integrated care”. Would it not be better to reconsider that policy, which...

NHS Winter Crisis (5 Feb 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: indicated dissent.

Immigration White Paper (5 Feb 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: Post March 2019, from a practical point of view, the one in five of my constituents who are EU nationals could: have permanent residency or settled status; be eligible for settled status; have future eligibility for settled status; or not be eligible at all. When they are talking to landlords, employers and the health service, how are they going differentiate which category they fall into?

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc.) Bill (2 Feb 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: I want to make a few brief remarks about clause 2, on the reform of civil partnerships, but I begin by adding my congratulations to the hon. Member for East Worthing and Shoreham (Tim Loughton). It is a shame that he has had to wait 20 years for a Bill, but he is certainly making up for it now. It is always a pleasure to work with him, because he does so a spirit of just getting things done....

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc.) Bill (2 Feb 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: The hon. Lady has spoiled my tweet: I have just tweeted that there is unanimous support in the House today for extending civil partnerships. Does she take the point that this is about extending choice? It will not affect her or other people adversely; it will simply give other people the chance to do something that they want to do.

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc.) Bill (2 Feb 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: Although clause 2 is disappointing in some ways, it is a step forward. But the Minister will be aware that this matter will go before the Supreme Court in May. Will she give the House an indication of the timescale both for the consultation and for when the Government will reach a decision?

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc.) Bill (2 Feb 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: I am pleased that the hon. Gentleman has mentioned Charles and Rebecca, who are constituents of mine. As he says, the case is going to the Supreme Court, but so far the courts have indicated that it is for the House and the Government to make decisions about the matter. Does the hon. Gentleman share my dissatisfaction about the fact that the Government may be considering restricting civil...

Exiting the European Union: Transition Period (1 Feb 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: I will do my best, Mr Speaker. The EU has made it clear that EU citizens coming to the UK during the transition period should be eligible for settled status; the Prime Minister says they will not be eligible. Is that a red line, or are the Government willing to compromise on that? I thought nothing was agreed until everything was agreed.

Leaving the Eu: Economic Analysis (30 Jan 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: My constituents, many of whom are former Conservative voters, cannot understand why any Government would adopt policies that they knew would make them or the country worse off. The Minister’s tactic today is to rubbish his own commissioned analyses because they show that leaving the EU will be an economic disaster, to a greater or lesser extent. If he believes in Brexit at any cost,...

Taliban and is/Daesh Attacks: Afghanistan: Contaminated Blood Inquiry (29 Jan 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: With respect, the Minister has said nothing to advance this matter today. I have been supporting affected constituents with declining health for eight years, which sounds like a long time but is a fraction of the time that victims have waited for justice. Does she now regret the four-month delay in moving the inquiry from the then Department of Health to the Cabinet Office, which my hon....

Leaving the Eu: Implementation (29 Jan 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: One in five people resident in Hammersmith and Fulham is an EU27 citizen. Along with, I suspect, the 3.5 million-plus others in the UK, they feel confused and misled by what the Government have said about their future in this country. Will the Minister confirm that people who move to the UK from the EU during the transition period will be eligible to apply for settled status?

Joint Enterprise (25 Jan 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: I have had the privilege of working with JENGbA, and particularly with Gloria Morrison, for seven or eight years, and I am pleased that the organisation is now located in my constituency. However, I am sorry that we have not made more progress—by “we”, I mean the House and the Government. As we have heard, JENGbA has a phenomenal record of representing 800 families in these...

Joint Enterprise (25 Jan 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Business of the House (25 Jan 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: I am still waiting for an answer to my question on what caused the Grenfell Tower fire, which I was told was imminent last autumn. Not for the first time, the question has outlasted the Minister to whom it was asked. Can we hear from Ministers in the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy about fire safety, especially that of domestic appliances? Last Sunday they announced a...

Heathrow Airport: Public Consultation (24 Jan 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Henry. This consultation is really just the latest consultation for Heathrow—the fruit of the poisoned tree. The issue has been heavily politicised over a long time, under successive Governments, but things really went wrong during the period of the Airports Commission. Prior to 2010, David Cameron made promises, which he then...

Heathrow Airport: Public Consultation (24 Jan 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: Very briefly.
