Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Rehman Chishti: The Secretary of State is absolutely right: Members of Parliament have a duty to stand up for their constituents, and I will do just that.

G7 (11 Jun 2018)

Rehman Chishti: Paragraph 20 of the communiqué states: “We…call upon Iran to play a constructive role” for “peace in the region.” The same statement was made at the 2015 G7.

Gaza Border Violence (15 May 2018)

Rehman Chishti: The loss of innocent life is completely unacceptable. We have talked about the US moving its embassy to Jerusalem, but the other key impediment to peace in the middle east is the expansion of the illegal settlements by the Israeli Government.

Rehman Chishti: I refer the Secretary of State to the Prime Minister’s statement at the Gulf Co-operation Council summit in 2016: “I am clear-eyed about the threat that Iran poses to the Gulf and the wider Middle East.” She said that we will work with our GCC partners to “counter that threat.” Can the Secretary of State clarify what tangibly has been done to counter that threat?...

Access to Fertility Services: Laser Misuse (Vehicles) Bill [Lords] (18 Apr 2018)

Rehman Chishti: In answer to the point made by the shadow Secretary of State, the hon. Member for Middlesbrough (Andy McDonald), that this measure has been pushed by the Labour Opposition, I say that success has many fathers and failure has none.

Lastly, I want to thank the current Secretary of State for Transport for the time he gave me and for fully taking on board my concerns. I of course welcome what is proposed in the Bill. When certain individuals are recklessly misusing laser...

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Rehman Chishti: One of the darkest stains on the international community’s conscience was the inaction by the EU and the United Nations in preventing the massacre of Muslim men in Srebrenica. International humanitarian and military action was right then. It was right in Bosnia and it is right now to prevent the massacre of innocent people in Syria. We have a moral duty to act.

Syria: De-Escalation Zones (26 Feb 2018)

Rehman Chishti: I welcome the Foreign Secretary’s statement. In 1995, in relation to the Srebrenica massacre and genocide, the international community authorised international humanitarian military action.
