Housing and Planning Bill (2 Nov 2015)

Rupa Huq: rose—

Maternity Discrimination (3 Nov 2015)

Rupa Huq: I congratulate the hon. Member for Cumbernauld, Kilsyth and Kirkintilloch East (Stuart C. McDonald)on securing this important debate. You would have thought, Mr Bailey, that by 2015 much discrimination in this country would have been eliminated. We have had the Equal Pay Act 1970, the Sex Discrimination Act 1975, race relations legislation and the Disability Discrimination Act 2005—all...

Opposition Day — [9th Allotted Day]: Policing (4 Nov 2015)

Rupa Huq: The police do not usually do politics. The Representation of the People Act 1983 prevents them from influencing any person’s decision to vote by word or deed and the police’s code of ethics states that the police “must not take any active part in politics.” That did not stop an open letter being issued on 21 April from 1,000 past and present police staff, including 600 serving...

Opposition Day — [9th Allotted Day]: Policing (4 Nov 2015)

Rupa Huq: I totally agree with my hon. Friend. The contact that means officers know the names of people on the streets is what we value about our police force, and it is endangered by the Government’s actions. The police in those police stations told me that the thin blue line is getting ever thinner and that precious human resources are being stretched to breaking point. In the 2011 riots, our...

Houses of Parliament (Family-friendliness) — [Fabian Hamilton in the Chair] (10 Nov 2015)

Rupa Huq: The other day at about 8 o’clock, I found myself heading back from the mother of Parliaments, which is—I still pinch myself—my workplace. I was heading from tube to road with a neighbour of mine from a few doors away, who said, “Late night at work, was it?” I was not fast enough to say no, this was an early night; as all Members know, it can be a lot later than that on a Monday....

Houses of Parliament (Family-friendliness) — [Fabian Hamilton in the Chair] (10 Nov 2015)

Rupa Huq: Really? There is so much more I could have said.

Backbench Business: Royal Bank of Scotland (5 Nov 2015)

Rupa Huq: My hon. Friend is a renowned economist, but even before we get into the alternative models of banking, does he agree that one does not have to be an economist to see that buying something at one price and then selling it off for next to nothing—at the current market rate, shares are £3.21 each—does not make good economic sense? That from a party that prides itself on its so-called...

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: First Time Buyers (17 Nov 2015)

Rupa Huq: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what estimate he has made of the projected average age of a first time buyer in 2020.

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Housing: Sales (17 Nov 2015)

Rupa Huq: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, if he will bring forward legislative proposals to allow local councils to ban overseas and off-plan sales.

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Social Security Benefits: Young People (19 Nov 2015)

Rupa Huq: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, pursuant to the contribution of the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Disabled People of 27 October 2015, Official Report, column 101WH, what assessment he has made of the reason for the high proportion of young people receiving benefit sanctions.

Off-patent Drugs Bill (6 Nov 2015)

Rupa Huq: My hon. Friend talked about cost. Does he agree with my constituent, Elena, of west Ealing, who wrote to me on this subject to say that it would help MS sufferers in particular and that “it is crucial that affordable treatments are used to their full potential particularly at a time when NHS resources are stretched. The Bill will tackle this issue head on and stand to benefit hundreds of...

UK Musicians Performing Overseas — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (25 Nov 2015)

Rupa Huq: I hope to enlighten you further about other types of music, Mr Howarth. I congratulate the hon. Member for Selby and Ainsty (Nigel Adams) on bringing this important subject to the Chamber, and I echo his revulsion at the recent events in Paris. Last week, I found myself in China on an overseas trip—my first one as an MP, and my first time in China. I noticed a building that looked very...

Written Answers — Women and Equalities: Equality (26 Nov 2015)

Rupa Huq: To ask the Minister for Women and Equalities, what steps she is taking to reduce gender economic inequality.

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Employment: Disability (27 Nov 2015)

Rupa Huq: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what financial and advisory assistance his Department offers to businesses to encourage them to employ, train and support people with physical and learning disabilities.

Employment Tribunal Fees — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (1 Dec 2015)

Rupa Huq: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that we are also talking about gender discrimination, because women who are suffering from pregnancy discrimination or maternity discrimination will be afraid to take cases with a price tag of £1,200, so they will suffer in silence?

Employment Tribunal Fees — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (1 Dec 2015)

Rupa Huq: Does that not make a mockery of the claim the Prime Minister made to me at Prime Minister’s questions that he is now a feminist? How does all this marry up with that statement?

[Geraint Davies in the Chair] — State Pension Age Equalisation (2 Dec 2015)

Rupa Huq: My hon. Friend is making a powerful speech. Does she agree that the people who are treated most iniquitously are those born in 1954? My constituent Michele Carlile of Hanger Hill says that an extra six years were hiked on to her pension age with no warning. That generation did not have the equal opportunities that created independent pension funds, and they did not have free nursery places;...

[Geraint Davies in the Chair] — State Pension Age Equalisation (2 Dec 2015)

Rupa Huq: Does my hon. Friend agree that this Government need to stop seeing people as just anomalies on a spreadsheet? The cases that she has highlighted are those of real-life individuals, and apparently there are 300,000 people born between 6 December 1953 and 5 October 1954 who have been hit twice by Tory pension changes, and these issues need addressing.

Marriage Registration Certificates — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (8 Dec 2015)

Rupa Huq: I congratulate the right hon. Lady on bringing the important subject to the House. On Friday, we debated the Riot (Damages) Act 1886, and some Members here were present. That Act has not been changed since 1886, which is quite recent compared with the legislation that the right hon. Lady mentioned. I understand that the Home Office Minister, James Brokenshire, said in October that there would...
