Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Nov 2017)

Counter-Daesh Update (7 Nov 2017)

Nadhim Zahawi: Our words do matter in here, and the members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard court, who will be watching our proceedings today, are the ones to blame for the incarceration of this wife and mother of a three-year-old—of a British citizen who has been spuriously charged with falsehoods. If our words really do matter, it is only right that we do not play party politics, and I am looking...

Healthcare in Oxfordshire — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Nadhim Zahawi: On the point about learning, the Oxfordshire clinical commissioning group has only one district council from Warwickshire—Stratford-on-Avon District Council—on its board. In phase 1 of the consultation, which began in January, it only met the council in March; the council’s overview and scrutiny committee had requested a much earlier meeting. Should that not be part of the...

Healthcare in Oxfordshire — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Nadhim Zahawi: Horton General Hospital is unique in that serves not only Oxfordshire but Warwickshire, Northamptonshire and even Gloucestershire. I was very concerned about the lack of engagement by Oxfordshire CCG with relevant stakeholders in Warwickshire in phase 1 of its consultation. There was very little communication between the Oxfordshire and South Warwickshire CCGs, despite the fact that there is...

Contaminated Blood (11 Jul 2017)

Nadhim Zahawi: I am very grateful to you, Mr Speaker. May I join colleagues in paying tribute to the hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull North (Diana Johnson) and the work she has done in leading the all-party group, as well to my hon. Friend the Member for Worthing West (Sir Peter Bottomley), who has been a joint chairman of that group? I have been working with the victims in my constituency since...

Contaminated Blood (11 Jul 2017)

Nadhim Zahawi: I think the victims who looked at the Scottish settlement have taken that point on board—that is certainly the case with Adrian Melson—and I am sure that the Government listened to the hon. Gentleman’s view. Let us come together and provide a clear timeline for when the victims can get not only justice but compensation.

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Topical Questions (11 Jul 2017)

Nadhim Zahawi: As well as the physical rebuilding of Mosul, one of the ways to reassure the people of Mosul is to devolve power to them, for which the Iraqi constitution allows. Will the Foreign Secretary urge the Iraqi Administration to look seriously at devolving power to the people of Mosul?

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) Bill: Israel and Palestinian Talks (5 Jul 2017)

Nadhim Zahawi: I welcome my right hon. Friend to his rightful place on the Front Bench. Does he agree that one of the tragedies of this conflict is that for many years both sides have seemed to know what a deal looks like but, sadly, have never got there? One of the views in the middle east region is that that is in part because Hamas can never agree with Abu Mazen. Indeed, some will say that Hamas does not...

Kurdistan Region in Iraq — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (4 Jul 2017)

Nadhim Zahawi: It is a privilege and a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. From the outset, I declare a significant interest in the Kurdistan region in Iraq. I refer colleagues to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. As I have so often said in my parliamentary contributions since being elected for the first time in 2010, I am very proud to be the first British...

Brexit and Foreign Affairs (26 Jun 2017)

Nadhim Zahawi: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Dwyfor Meirionnydd (Liz Saville Roberts). I welcome the fact that most of the legislation in the Gracious Speech was devoted to equipping our country for its departure from the EU and to the forging of a new place for us in the world. I am proud that the Government are fully committed to delivering on the will of the British people, so that our...

Brexit and Foreign Affairs (26 Jun 2017)

Nadhim Zahawi: For the shadow Secretary of State to be balanced in his view on no deal, he also needs to talk about what no deal means for the EU27. We looked at this on the Foreign Affairs Committee and, actually, the experts say that no deal is as harsh for the EU27 as it is for the United Kingdom. A bit of balance in the right hon. and learned Gentleman’s words would go down well in developing a...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (21 Jun 2017)

Nadhim Zahawi: This is the first time we have come together since Manchester, London Bridge and, of course, Finsbury Park.

Friend join me in calling on all Members to give our security agencies the tools for which they have asked through the Gracious Speech, so that they can do their job properly?

Early Parliamentary General Election (19 Apr 2017)

Nadhim Zahawi: Does the Prime Minister agree with Lord Hill, who was a European Commissioner? When asked by the Foreign Affairs Committee what was the best strategy for negotiation, his response was that we have to come together, because our interlocutors will be watching this place and will exploit any weakness in our political system.

European Council (14 Mar 2017)

Nadhim Zahawi: There were smirks and laughter from the Opposition Benches when my right hon. Friend spoke of the single market and digital. Will she remind the House that we want to continue to trade with the single market and that we inject £60 billion-worth of demand into that market? With investment from Snap, Facebook and SoftBank, this is country is a powerhouse in digital.

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Topical Questions (21 Feb 2017)

Nadhim Zahawi: The Israeli Prime Minister has recently spoken about coming together with the Gulf Co-operation Council on security issues. Countries such as Jordan and Egypt have played a significant role in previous peace processes. Does the Foreign Secretary think that the GCC has a significant role to play in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Nadhim Zahawi: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Tottenham (Mr Lammy). He knows that I like him very much, but I disagree with what he has said. I commend the shadow Brexit Secretary for his powerful speech, in which he demonstrated that he believes in our democracy and in the national interest. The simplicity of the Bill speaks volumes about what it will put into law. As has been said...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Nadhim Zahawi: The right hon. Gentleman will recall that both the previous Prime Minister and the previous Chancellor made it very clear, as did many of the commentators in many of the debates that took place during the referendum campaign, that if we are to leave the European Union, we will leave the single market. My fear is that if Members of this House are seen to be hindering so fundamental a piece of...
