Upcoming Business – Commons: Westminster Hall (4 Sep 2018)

Women's rights after the UK leaves the EU – Rupa Huq. Westminster Hall debate; 1:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Standards: Summer Adjournment (24 Jul 2018)

Rupa Huq: It is good news that I have been called to speak so early, and I want to start with some good news relating to the last time that I was in this slot. I like to use this debate for unfinished business, and last time I mentioned a business in Park Royal called Sweetland, a baklava manufacturer of distinction. It is a patisserie that makes middle eastern food that goes to restaurants all over...

Immigration Detention: Shaw Review (24 Jul 2018)

Rupa Huq: I welcome this Home Office-commissioned review. I also welcome the Secretary of State’s words on the women in Yarl’s Wood, who often do not know what they have been detained for. I have a letter from the Home Secretary in which he rightly condemns harassment and intimidating behaviour towards women, but regarding a Home Office review into women seeking abortion healthcare he also...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Organs: Transplant Surgery (24 Jul 2018)

Rupa Huq: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what plans he has to secure access to EU organ transplant networks and databases after the UK leaves the EU.

Nato Summit (16 Jul 2018)

Rupa Huq: Our NATO obligations are entwined with our other collective security arrangements. The Prime Minister has previously said: “Thanks to the arrest warrant, more than 2,500 people wanted for crimes abroad are no longer roaming the streets of Britain…These include serious international criminals like murderers, paedophiles, human traffickers and terrorists.” Can she tell us how...

Nato Summit (16 Jul 2018)

Rupa Huq: In parallel.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (12 Jul 2018)

Rupa Huq: The Secretary of State scored a major coup in being the first to interview President-elect Trump. As the Secretary of State has since become a born-again green and the President will touch down on these shores today, will the Secretary of State use all his famous skills of tact and persuasion, as well as that pre-existing special relationship, to impress on the President that climate change...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Fundraising for victims of terrorism: restrictions on profits (10 Jul 2018)

Rupa Huq: I wholeheartedly agree with my hon. Friend. Platforms such as JustGiving are behaving in a very uncharitable way. The Minister has an “It’ll be all right on the night” policy, but I am reminded of when in 2017—my hon. Friend the Member for Scunthorpe was with us then—the same argument was made about the public register of beneficial interests. The Minister on...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Fundraising for victims of terrorism: restrictions on profits (10 Jul 2018)

Rupa Huq: Even The Sun newspaper, which normally is not really friendly to the Labour party. I pay tribute to my hon. Friend’s work and I hope that the Minister will think again.

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Rupa Huq: Now that even senior members of the Government are resigning—DExEU’s midnight runners and the Foreign Secretary—because they think that we are heading for a bad Brexit deal, I suggest to the Prime Minister that at the end of the negotiations, she could put herself in a strong position by holding a people’s vote to validate the final deal. What is she scared of?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Demolition of Khan al-Ahmar (4 Jul 2018)

Rupa Huq: For the two Bushes, Clinton and Obama, building on area E1, where Bedouins have grazed sheep and goats for years, was a red line, but now, under Trump, there are no red lines. Does the Minister not appreciate that his concern, disappointment and bemusement—as I think he even said—do not seem enough when bulldozers will literally be concreting over all hopes for a two-state...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Terrorism reinsurance (3 Jul 2018)

Rupa Huq: I want to make a parallel. The hon. Gentleman referred to a time lag. When there were riots in my constituency in 2011, the Riot (Damages) Act 1886 was not fit for purpose.

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Terrorism reinsurance (3 Jul 2018)

Rupa Huq: I wanted to say that the Riot Compensation Act 2016 tidied that up. It would be good if that were considered in some form.

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Retention of biometric data for counter-terrorism purposes etc (3 Jul 2018)

Rupa Huq: Taking on board the point made by my hon. Friend the Member for Bermondsey and Old Southwark that those categories were stratified, taking account of some mental health issues, the Exeter Giraffe would-be nail bomber Nicky Reilly had quite serious Asperger’s syndrome. The inquest has not been done, but he has since died in Manchester prison. He was a convert, and that is something else...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Retention of biometric data for counter-terrorism purposes etc (3 Jul 2018)

Rupa Huq: Will the Minister look into the materials put out by the London borough of Hillingdon? It may not be Home Office guidance, but somewhere in the food chain it has been told to me that that is what they are pumping out.

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Retention of biometric data for counter-terrorism purposes etc (3 Jul 2018)

Rupa Huq: I am listening to what the Minister is saying about the statistical evidence to counter the myths and all that stuff. If he is dead set against an independent review, does he accept the point that if some of these Muslim groups felt they had a hand in the design, they would feel less that they were being picked on? The ones I have spoken to feel that there are a lot of converts who are all...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Retention of biometric data for counter-terrorism purposes etc (3 Jul 2018)

Rupa Huq: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. I speak to clause 18, in support of my hon. Friend the Member for Torfaen’s plea for an independent review of the programme. As he said so persuasively, it is doing some good work out there, and nobody is arguing against safeguarding. However, we have to accept that in its current guise and its earlier incarnation of preventing violent...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Retention of biometric data for counter-terrorism purposes etc (3 Jul 2018)

Rupa Huq: What I would say is that the hon. Gentleman needed to bear with me and hear what I was going to say as I developed my argument. I had barely finished my first sentence. If he bears with me, I will give examples of other communities, too—not just Muslims, of course. We do not want this to be a cover for people to do their illicit deeds. If he will bear with me, I would like to continue....

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Retention of biometric data for counter-terrorism purposes etc (3 Jul 2018)

Rupa Huq: I am grateful to the Minister for flagging up that one should be cagey about Cage. I have never encountered Cage directly, but am reporting verbatim what someone said to me. That is my point: if people feel they are being alienated, we do not want to radicalise them and drive them into the arms of the wrong people. The Somali girl said she had undertaken training at the London borough of...
