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

Bob Blackman: Reports suggest that some 800 British citizens may have gone to fight for the evil death cult Daesh in Iraq and Syria. My right hon. Friend the Defence Secretary and, indeed, the Foreign and Commonwealth Minister for Africa, my hon. Friend the Member for Penrith and The Border (Rory Stewart), have both indicated that those individuals will not be allowed to return to the UK and may be hunted...

Israel: Us Embassy (7 Dec 2017)

Bob Blackman: Is the reality not that the peace process has been stalled for 24 years, since 1993, and that what we need following this announcement is direct peace talks between the state of Israel and the Palestinian representatives? If we can get from the United Nations a brokered position whereby those peace talks start, this decision could end up having been quite a good one.

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Dec 2017)

Bob Blackman: One of the big prizes to be gained from being free of the European Union is enabling us, as a United Kingdom, to negotiate our own free trade deals across the world. Will my right hon. Friend confirm that nothing in these agreements will fetter our ability to do that?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Homelessness and Rough Sleeping (4 Dec 2017)

Will he elucidate what he is going to do to roll out the programme to combat rough sleeping right across the country so that we can end this national scandal once and for all?

Business of the House (30 Nov 2017)

Bob Blackman: Yesterday saw the long-awaited publication by the Labour Mayor of London of the draft London plan. It could lead to the end of back gardens in suburbia and the abolition of car-parking spaces in all new developments. At the same time, not a single new affordable home has been built on his watch. The plan will affect all Londoners, so may we have a debate in Government time on the drastic...

Online Hate Speech (30 Nov 2017)

Bob Blackman: I congratulate my right hon. Friend and the Prime Minister on their strong words and strong action in condemning the spreading of these evil words. Will my right hon. Friend look at encouraging the internet companies to make sure that Twitter and Facebook accounts, and other such accounts, are clearly identified as the mouthpiece of individuals and the organisations they represent? There is...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Polio (29 Nov 2017)

Bob Blackman: I congratulate my right hon. Friend and the Department on the work that is being done to help eradicate polio. However, there is a risk that it can return if inoculations do not take place. Will he use the opportunity of the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting next year to press the case for further inoculations across the Commonwealth?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (27 Nov 2017)

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (23 Nov 2017)

Bob Blackman: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Glasgow South West (Chris Stephens). I had the dubious pleasure a short while ago of listening to the shadow Chancellor and one of his erstwhile colleagues, Alastair Campbell. I congratulate the Chancellor on his Budget, but we need to set in context the challenge of building 300,000 housing units a year. It has not been done since 1970, so for...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (23 Nov 2017)

Bob Blackman: Will my right hon. Friend confirm that the Grenfell relief fund will be available immediately and that we will not have to wait until the next Budget year on 1 April, so that the poor victims, who have suffered greatly, can get the help they need right now?

Universal Credit (23 Nov 2017)

Bob Blackman: I warmly welcome my right hon. Friend’s statement. Will he update the House on exactly how many people in receipt of UC have gone on into work as a direct result of going on to this new system? Obviously, that is the intention and we should be singing it from the rooftops.

Business of the House (23 Nov 2017)

Bob Blackman: Mr Speaker, I will not join in with your allusion to football—all I will say is good luck to Arsenal this evening in the Europa league. We rightly devolve funding to metro Mayors and local authorities and expect them to spend the money wisely. Following the Budget yesterday, the Labour Mayor of London has been on the airwaves complaining about the funding for the Metropolitan police and...

Uber: Personal Data Theft (23 Nov 2017)

Bob Blackman: I thank my right hon. Friend for his answers. Given the knowledge he has already gleaned from this disgraceful data breach, does he propose to make any further amendments to the Data Protection Bill, which has been brought before the Lords and which will come here in due course, to strengthen the powers to make sure that companies report such breaches at an early stage and take further...

International Trade: Leaving the EU: New Trade Agreements (23 Nov 2017)

Bob Blackman: When she plans to respond to the Government’s consultation on caste as a protected characteristic in equality legislation.

Women and Equalities: Caste as a Protected Characteristic (23 Nov 2017)

Bob Blackman: Given the thousands of responses from British Hindus saying that having caste as a protected characteristic in equality law is unnecessary and divisive, will my right hon. Friend take action to remove that provision—which was introduced by the Labour party—from the legislative book?

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Voter Registration (22 Nov 2017)

Bob Blackman: The Electoral Commission estimates that some 40% of those who applied late to vote through the online system were actually duplicate registrations. Will my hon. Friend make sure that there is no unnecessary duplication of applications? That would also minimise bureaucracy.

Prime Minister: Engagements (22 Nov 2017)

Bob Blackman: Last year, housing associations generated £5.5 billion in cash surplus—this is money that could be used to build 48,000 new homes in this country. The accumulated reserves of housing associations come to £42 billion, which would mean that 36,500 properties a year for the next 10 years could be built. Will my right hon. Friend examine ways in which we could ensure housing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: West Bank (21 Nov 2017)

Bob Blackman: I thank the Minister for his answers. When Prime Minister Netanyahu was in London recently, what discussions did my right hon. Friend have with him about face-to-face peace talks between the state of Israel and the Palestinians so that we can create a state of Palestine alongside a secure state of Israel?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (21 Nov 2017)
