Crime and Neighbourhood Policing (31 Jan 2023)

Rushanara Ali: The charge rate for rape is just 1.6%. Does my right hon. Friend agree that it is down to the large-scale cuts to policing and the Crown Prosecution Service budget that conviction rates are so low and the overwhelming majority of victims are not getting the justice they deserve? After 13 years of Conservative Governments, they are allowing rapists to get off scot-free while victims suffer.

IMF Economic Outlook (31 Jan 2023)

Rushanara Ali: The Minister talks about covid as if we were the only country to experience the pandemic. He talks about the Ukraine crisis as if the fuel costs are affecting only this country, but he fails to mention that the former Prime Minister and her Chancellor crashed the economy, and that that came on top of the uncertainties of the previous years, including the failure to get a decent deal after...

Strikes (Minimum Service Levels) Bill: Clause 1 - Minimum service levels for certain strikes (30 Jan 2023)

Rushanara Ali: Does my right hon. Friend agree that this legislation is a diversion from this Government’s incompetence? Last year, they practically cost the taxpayer £55 billion because of the economic mismanagement of their Government under the former Prime Minister, the right hon. Member for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss). Instead of negotiating to protect people, the Government are blaming...

Building Safety (30 Jan 2023)

Rushanara Ali: In my borough we have the largest number of cladded blocks and we have had numerous fires, which have terrified residents.

Rushanara Ali: The Governor of the Bank of England said yesterday to the Treasury Committee that the mini-Budget has damaged our reputation internationally.

Treasury: Topical Questions (15 Nov 2022)

Rushanara Ali: I thank the Chancellor for the work he is doing and congratulate him on his new post. We hope that he lasts the week, or maybe the fortnight. The Government scandalously allowed organised criminals and fraudsters to take billions of pounds of public money through covid loan fraud as a result of the lack of proper checks. Estimates suggest that that has cost taxpayers £33 billion. Why should...

Cop27 (9 Nov 2022)

Rushanara Ali: I wrote to the Prime Minister to ask him to make representations to the Egyptian President about the case of my constituent Jessica Kelly’s husband, Karim Ennarah, an Egyptian human rights activist who was imprisoned.
