[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Donald Trump (18 Jan 2016)

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day] — Housing Benefit and Supported Housing: Prisons and Probation (27 Jan 2016)

Rupa Huq: On the Justice Committee, we interviewed the chief inspector and found his answers on ministerial interference in his reports very interesting. Does my hon. Friend agree that, to the outside world, the fact that the chief inspector’s contract is not being renewed makes it look like he was doing an effective job in holding the MOJ to account, and is now being silenced?

Opposition Day — [19th Allotted Day] — Transitional State Pension Arrangements for Women (24 Feb 2016)

Rupa Huq: Mr Deputy Speaker, 1950s-born women are not usually seen as a militant group. They were born and raised in the era of “Hi honey, I’m home,” spotless perfection, domestic bliss and Formica, but the situation they now find themselves in is far from perfect. I have only been an MP since May, but, as several Members have mentioned, including the hon. Member for Paisley and Renfrewshire...

European Affairs (25 Feb 2016)

Rupa Huq: Even before we get into the machinations of referendums and the pros and cons of Brexit, let us note that the European influence on our very language has been around a while, with Spanish omelettes, German measles, Dutch auctions and, more risqué, French letters and French kissing—well, we are talking European affairs, are we not? What was once a continent across the channel with a faint...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (3 Mar 2016)

Rupa Huq: To prevent our pop charts from being disproportionately dominated by acts from private schools, and to prevent another all-white Brit awards like the event that was criticised last week, would the Minister consider starting a scheme similar to the much missed music action zones that the Labour Government created to encourage creativity and talent in music in non-classroom contexts?

Business of the House (3 Mar 2016)

Rupa Huq: May we have a statement on the uses of broadcast footage of the House of Commons? My constituent, Charlie Brooker, has raised with me—[Interruption.] He has, and he was one of my 270-something constituents who contributed to my majority. He has raised with me the problem that he is unable to use such footage in his programme “Screenwipe”, yet other not too dissimilar broadcasters are...

Three-tier Education — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (16 Mar 2016)

Rupa Huq: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing this debate. He is making an interesting speech. He mentioned 1964 and 1981. When I asked the House of Commons Library for background on this issue, it said that there is virtually nothing. Is he aware of the 1967 Plowden report? That was the one source that the Library found for me, and it is inconclusive. I congratulate him on clarifying this...

Three-tier Education — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (16 Mar 2016)

Rupa Huq: In the Budget just now, we heard about devolution. The Minister says there is a role for local authorities, but if I understood correctly, schools are going to become academies, which seems to contradict the principle of devolution. Perhaps he can help me understand this better.

Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (21 Mar 2016)

Rupa Huq: The idea of devolution setting people free from centralised diktat may sound good on paper, but how does it square with the forced academisation of schools?
