Lyn Brown: Will the Minister give way?

Immigration Rules: Paragraph 322(5) (13 Jun 2018)

Lyn Brown: I want to tell hon. Members about two constituents. Muhammad has lived in and contributed to the UK for 11 years. He has a master’s in architecture from Oxford Brookes. His wife is pregnant; he has a career, a home, a mortgage and a real life in the UK. The Home Office refused him indefinite leave on the basis of a minor tax error. The error was not his. Muhammad is dyslexic and does...

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (24 May 2018)

Lyn Brown: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Henry. Monday 14 May will go down as a dark day in history. In Jerusalem, crowds listened to Baptist minister Robert Jeffress reading a prayer to mark the opening of the American embassy—a man who has previously made deeply offensive comments about Jews, Muslims, Mormons and gay people. In Tel Aviv, people danced the night away to...

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

Lyn Brown: Because they are going to get caught.

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

Lyn Brown: It is an honour to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Lewisham West and Penge (Ellie Reeves). She made some very good points, and made them passionately—and I know that she is passionate about the security of the community she serves. For the past year, my community in West Ham has been haunted by violence. Since the start of 2017, nine young people have been killed in my...

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

Lyn Brown: I have been working with mums whose children are or have been involved in county lines, and one of the messages they are very keen to get across is that this could happen to anybody, whoever they are. A police officer who spoke to me the other week told me about how the child of one of their colleagues had got involved. I want us to be very aware of the fact that this could genuinely happen...

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

Lyn Brown: Indeed it is!

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

Lyn Brown: I get where the hon. Gentleman is coming from—it is wholesome. My young people tell me that they carry a knife because they cannot be found lacking. We do not keep them safe, and they therefore feel that they have to keep themselves safe. Although I can see where he is coming from, I am not sure that we are really getting to the root cause or understanding of the problems that we are...

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

Lyn Brown: That is where I was a few years ago, but time has moved on. My little sister is a solicitor. She used to take people into schools to talk about the unlucky stab—that is, when people did not mean to kill somebody, but they cut an artery and so on. These people would talk to kids about the impact of the unlucky stab on their lives and the lives of others. But I am not sure that that is...

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

Lyn Brown: The Minister knows that there are difficulties in London at the moment. He is also aware that Cressida Dick has requested additional resources to deal with them. I came here today in the hope that we would have a fair and balanced debate about what we need on our streets, rather than this Punch and Judy nonsense. What he has suggested is that it is okay for nine children to have died in my...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Cost of Living (22 May 2018)

Lyn Brown: Well, that was fascinating. The Chief Secretary knows full well that 67% of children in poverty live in working households. The Child Poverty Action Group expects cuts within universal credit to push up to 1 million children into poverty by 2020. When all the Government’s policy changes are included, lone parents have lost an average of £5,250 a year since 2010. Families with three...

Sale of Puppies — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (21 May 2018)

Lyn Brown: A number of people have talked to me about how they were taken in by the sob stories of families in a flat who could no longer take a puppy so they had to give it away, with children roped into a farce and deception. We all need to be aware of the lengths to which people will go to exploit not only the animal but the person they are selling to, but the Government really need to legislate to...

Sale of Puppies — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (21 May 2018)

Lyn Brown: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that it is completely and utterly unrealistic to expect cash-strapped and time-stretched councils to tackle businesses with full-time staff who will do their best to hide any criminality and frustrate any enforcement action that is taken?

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote (21 May 2018)

Lyn Brown: The other place recommended last year that the Government stop treating Israel with kid gloves and display some political robustness. This Government’s abstention is worse than weak; it is deplorable. How can the people of Palestine trust our Government when we refuse even to look seriously at these issues, let alone challenge them?

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Lyn Brown: I agree with my hon. Friend. I also have massive amounts of immigration casework, and I really have not benefited from the staff with whom I have been beginning to get a relationship, and who really understand the cases, being changed willy-nilly by the Home Office. We could do with some stability.

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Lyn Brown: I want to talk about trust and how it has been violated, and I want to start with the cases of my constituents Gem and Jessica, both of which I raised in Monday’s debate in Westminster Hall. Gem arrived here from Jamaica, Jessica from Dominica. Both have worked here, paying taxes and raising families, for nearly 50 years, and both have fallen victim to the Government’s hostile...

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Lyn Brown: Will the right hon. Lady give way?

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Lyn Brown: rose—

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Lyn Brown: I want to bring the right hon. Lady back to today’s debate and read to her from a message that the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants has placed in my inbox: “Nothing that the government has announced today in parliament will address the root causes of the Windrush scandal—namely the ‘hostile environment’ policy. Hostility is still very much in play, the...
