Intelligence and Security Committee Report on Russia (5 Nov 2019)

Chuka Umunna: Many congratulations from these Benches on your election, Mr Speaker. There are serious questions to be answered. I say to Members on that side of the House that it is perfectly legitimate for Members on this side of the House to ask the questions that we are asking. Our job is to scrutinise what the Government are doing. Clearly there are serious questions to be answered in relation to the...

British Children: Syria (22 Oct 2019)

Chuka Umunna: I congratulate the right hon. Member for Haltemprice and Howden (Mr Davis) on asking this urgent question and agree with every single word he has said. Can I ask the Minister what would happen in the event that we are able to repatriate these children? As has already been said, they have witnessed, seen and experienced things that no adult, never mind any child, should have to experience,...

Written Answers — Department for International Trade: Overseas Trade (17 Oct 2019)

Chuka Umunna: What steps she is taking to support businesses with cross-border supply chains after the UK leaves the EU.

International Trade: Topical Questions (17 Oct 2019)

Chuka Umunna: The National Audit Office said yesterday that if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, cross-border shipments could be reduced by more than 50% and would take 12 months to return to normal. Can we stop this charade? Is it not the case that no responsible Government would do that to our businesses, and that if there is no agreement with the EU by Saturday, the Prime Minister will send the...

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe (7 Oct 2019)

Chuka Umunna: As has been said, one cannot imagine what Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe and her family have gone through. Like others, I commend the hon. Member for Hampstead and Kilburn (Tulip Siddiq) for raising this issue. The Minister talked about three and a half years of lobbying—essentially without success. As has been said, Iran has clearly breached human rights and international law, but from its point...

No-Deal Brexit: Schedule of Tariffs (7 Oct 2019)

Chuka Umunna: The Prime Minister talks about getting Brexit done by 31 October and indeed, the Minister has just referred to that, too, but is it not the reality that, if Brexit were to happen on that day, with or without a withdrawal agreement, no trade agreement, including a permanent tariff regime with our biggest customer, the EU, will be in place at the point of departure? Is it not the case that, to...

Brexit Negotiations (3 Oct 2019)

Chuka Umunna: The Prime Minister has denied on multiple occasions during this session that what he is proposing involves physical customs checks, but he has just said in his statement—on page three—in relation to the new protocol and customs checks, that there will be a “number of cases where physical checks would be necessary”. Is he denying that he said that? Secondly, he refers to the political...

Domestic Abuse Bill (2 Oct 2019)

Chuka Umunna: I am very grateful to the Lord Chancellor for giving way. We have in Lambeth among the highest rates of domestic violence in the country, so I very much welcome the introduction of this duty on local authorities. Does he recognise that it is vital that coupled with that duty is a Government commitment to help to provide the sustainable funding for specialist services that is needed? Secondly,...

Deaths of Homeless People (1 Oct 2019)

Chuka Umunna: The fact that, in this city—arguably one of the wealthiest on the planet— 110 people lost their lives last year is a complete outrage. I am afraid that the fact that the figure has increased by 20% year on year is a damning indictment of the Minister’s Government. Why are we continuing to criminalise people who are sleeping rough on our streets and begging? Is it not time that we got...

Arms Export Licences (Saudi Arabia) (26 Sep 2019)

Chuka Umunna: When Court orders are contravened a couple of times, it can perhaps be dismissed as a failure to follow procedures, but when it happens on multiple occasions, it suggests that there is a systemic problem; the system is not working. Will the Secretary of State look at implementing a policy of the presumption of denial in respect of all export licences to countries listed as human rights...

Hong Kong (26 Sep 2019)

Chuka Umunna: In response to a written question tabled by my right hon.
