Royal Assent: Business of the House (7 Dec 2017)

Pauline Latham: We have outlawed forced marriage in this country, but could we have a debate on children of 16 still being able to be married with the consent of their parents, instead of waiting until they are 18? That seems to be an anomaly that we should fix.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Nuclear Reactors: Investment (7 Dec 2017)

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe (13 Nov 2017)

Pauline Latham: Any mother forcibly separated from her daughter will suffer from mental health problems, but it appears that Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe is now also suffering from a physical illness. She is a dual nation, which means she is British, so it possible for my right hon. Friend to appeal to the Government on humanitarian grounds for her release?

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

Pauline Latham: I am disappointed, to say the least—I am sure that the Minister recognises this—that we will not recognise the holodomor as a genocide. We recognised the holocaust as a genocide retrospectively, so surely we should do the same for the holodomor, given the wealth of evidence out there. I hope that the Minister will refer my thoughts to the Minister for Europe and the Americas, who...

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

Pauline Latham: The Minister mentioned what happened in Rwanda. That was never known as a genocide while it was happening, although the population talked about a genocide; it came afterwards. Does the Minister have an answer to the question why the world does not want to recognise something as genocide while it is happening? There is the Rohingya crisis at the moment, and there have been continuous genocides...

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

Pauline Latham: I beg to move, That this House has considered the Ukrainian Holodomor. What a delight it is to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Walker, and it is even better that the Minister managed to make it here, having been very busy in the Chamber until this point. The motion is that the House has considered the Ukrainian holodomor, but I hope that we can widen the scope slightly to, “That this...

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

Pauline Latham: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. Hundreds of thousands of people in this country are descendants of people who were part of and who died in the holodomor, so they do have an indomitable spirit, and even now in Ukraine they show that they will not be bowed by the people of the Soviet Union. The historian Dominic Sandbrook recently wrote in the Daily Mail about the brutality of...

Yemen (7 Nov 2017)

Pauline Latham: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the UK is playing a leading role in the response to the appalling humanitarian crisis in Yemen, as the third largest humanitarian donor to Yemen in the world and the second largest donor to the UN appeal?

The Rohingya and the Myanmar Government (17 Oct 2017)

Pauline Latham: It is a pleasure to follow three very passionate speeches. People feel very strongly about this, and there are statistics that we can all quote, but the human tragedy is the most important thing. We can talk about how much money we have spent, how much other countries have spent and how many people have been displaced, but we understand more when we watch the television news. Unlike my hon....

Uk Plans for Leaving the EU: Points of Order (9 Oct 2017)

Pauline Latham: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I wish to announce that I misled the House of Commons inadvertently on the last day before the recess. I said that the Facebook page “Unauthorised Amanda Solloway” had been taken down, but I was completely wrong, unfortunately. The hon. Member for Derby North (Chris Williamson), who could have had it taken down, continues to misunderstand what he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Disabled People: Independent Living (9 Oct 2017)

Pauline Latham: My constituent Jacci Woodcock has been campaigning for some time for Dying to Work. She has a terminal illness and was hounded out by her employer. She would like more employers to sign up—employers such as Derbyshire County Council and Rolls-Royce Aero Engines, which have just done so. Will the Minister say what steps she would like to see to ensure that people have more dignity when...

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Pauline Latham: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Pauline Latham: That was an interesting contribution by the hon. Member for Lancaster and Fleetwood (Cat Smith); I will refer to it during my remarks. I recently came back from Rwanda, where there was a presidential election. There was less intimidation, abuse and violence there than we had in this country, which is pretty shocking, because many African countries—not Rwanda, I have to...
