West London Coroner’s Court (16 Dec 2015)

Rupa Huq: I am a new MP. I have only been here since May, but even from that short time, the vivid stories that Members from all parties have described are depressingly familiar to me from doing surgeries once a week for two hours. I completely understand that it is not helpful to bring up individuals and hang people out to dry, and it is not my intention to do that today. However, I will highlight a...

West London Coroner’s Court (16 Dec 2015)

Rupa Huq: The hon. Member for Kingston and Surbiton (James Berry) referred to the ITV News investigation. One of the emails I have from the coroner says that “this complaint is fuelled by the recent unbalanced ITN news items.” That is what I mean by the inability to take criticism—someone who is grieving has been pooh-poohed by the coroner saying that it is media manipulation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Electoral Commission Committee: Voter Registration Rates (17 Dec 2015)

Rupa Huq: What recent steps the Electoral Commission has taken to improve voter registration rates.

Oral Answers to Questions — Electoral Commission Committee: Voter Registration Rates (17 Dec 2015)

Rupa Huq: Against the explicit advice of the Electoral Commission, the Government rushed through by a year the individual electoral registration on which the new boundaries will be based. HOPE not hate predicted that 1.9 million people will fall off the register. The hon. Gentleman has said that there has been an increase in registration, but I would like to know the net figures. It is predicted that...

Business of the House (17 Dec 2015)

Rupa Huq: We all agree on the importance of the NHS and its staff, yet my constituent Sharmila Chowdhury faces Christmas jobless because, as a radiographer at Ealing hospital, she exposed the malpractice of consultants taking extra financial inducements. May we have a debate on whistleblowers in the NHS? According to the House of Commons Library, there has not been such a debate since 2009, despite the...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Housing (15 Dec 2015)

Rupa Huq: In 1892, Mr Pooter, from “The Diary of a Nobody”, was the archetypal suburban London Mr Average, but on current figures he could not afford today to live where he did. In 2009, The Spectator said his home would be worth £1 million and that his clerk’s salary would be £40,000. In Ealing, a typical suburb, the figures are astronomical and are placing an average suburb out of reach for...

Public Bill Committee: Riot Compensation Bill: Clause 8 - Amount and payment of compensation (13 Jan 2016)

Rupa Huq: The word on the street in Ealing, once known as Queen of the Suburbs, was that our police were diverted to Westfield, which is a shopping centre of high-value, high-end designer shops. That is why we were left empty-handed when the riots hit.

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Public Service Broadcasting (21 Jan 2016)

Safer Neighbourhood Policing: London (5 Jan 2016)

Rupa Huq: First, I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Westminster North (Ms Buck) on securing this important debate. It is an honour to be sat next to the next Mayor of London, my right hon. Friend the Member for Tooting (Sadiq Khan). We know now that there are no immediate cuts to police budgets. Last time we debated this subject, there were worries about potential cuts of £800,000 to £1...

Safer Neighbourhood Policing: London (5 Jan 2016)

Rupa Huq: Okay; I apologise to the Minister.

Safer Neighbourhood Policing: London (5 Jan 2016)

Rupa Huq: My apologies. I am a rookie MP, so the terminology is still new to me. The 27% reduction in the MOPAC 7 crimes in Ealing is good news for the Minister, and I am sure he will welcome it. However, communities and boroughs need dedicated PCSOs. That is vital to our police service. Each of the 32 boroughs in London needs their own chief superintendent and command team. We as MPs need to work hand...

State Pension Age (Women) (7 Jan 2016)

Rupa Huq: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

State Pension Age (Women) (7 Jan 2016)

Rupa Huq: The fact that my hon. Friend had a recent debate in Westminster Hall on this very subject should send a message to the Government that people want action on it. Does she agree with my constituent Linda Gregory, who was born in 1953 and points out that she has been working since the age of 15 and therefore is being penalised even more than people entering the workplace at the age, which is the...

State Pension Age (Women) (7 Jan 2016)

Rupa Huq: My hon. Friend is making a powerful speech. He has reminded me of an email I had from a constituent who also said she had been double-walloped. When she was younger, she did not think about these things, but now she has health problems and she worries that she will be knocking on jobseekers door if this goes on.

Rupa Huq: What discussions he has had with the Government of Israel on reducing tensions in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Occupied Palestinian Territories (12 Jan 2016)

Rupa Huq: While the peace talks stall and tensions escalate, the continued expansion of settlements makes a two-state solution ever more difficult to achieve. What representations is the Minister making to the Israelis about the illegal settlements?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Banking Culture Review (19 Jan 2016)

Rupa Huq: What discussions he has had with the Financial Conduct Authority on its decision to end its review of banking culture.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Banking Culture Review (19 Jan 2016)

Rupa Huq: Given that the popular image of bankers right now is probably on a par with used car salesmen or MPs even, does the Minister not agree with the hon. Member for Wyre Forest (Mark Garnier) that to abort the review now, which could have looked at regulating challenger banks as well as historical mis-selling, is a missed opportunity?
