Women and Equalities: Abortion Clinics: Protection from Intimidation or Protest (21 Oct 2020)

Rupa Huq: What discussions she has had with Cabinet colleagues on protecting women attending abortion clinics from intimidation or protest.

Women and Equalities: Abortion Clinics: Protection from Intimidation or Protest (21 Oct 2020)

Rupa Huq: That is a very encouraging reply. Right now, up and down the country, women are being intimidated and police are having their time taken up by 40 Days for Life, an anti-choice group that is running a 40-day protest outside clinics. France, Australia and Canada have legislation on this. I am encouraged by what the Minister says. Will she please follow suit and take heed of the Demonstrations...

The Prime Minister was asked: Engagements (21 Oct 2020)

Rupa Huq: Financial support packages, tackling homelessness, rail nationalisation and honouring Marcus Rashford—there is plenty that this Government have done on covid that I applaud, but with winter set to bite and no end to the virus in sight, may I ask the Prime Minister to reconsider the arbitrary end to many of his schemes, which were set months ago when we knew so little? Three million...

Sudan (15 Oct 2020)

Rupa Huq: For us both. Harriett Baldwin, if you wish, the Floor is yours to respond.

Covid-19 Update (15 Oct 2020)

Rupa Huq: Cases in Ealing have shot up, doubling in the past week and making it now the capital’s coronavirus capital. May I therefore commend the Secretary of State’s approach to the London-wide situation, given its fluidity and that of our city? Will he resist the siren voices on the Conservative Benches saying otherwise? Will he look at additional funding for areas like mine, and other...

Areas with Additional Public Health Restrictions: Economic Support (6 Oct 2020)

Rupa Huq: London, which is now on a watch list, is not only our financial centre but our cultural capital. [Interruption.] I believe so. It is the nation’s beating heart. Despite the £1.57 billion arts rescue package, freelancers and the self-employed in the sector in my constituency have not seen a penny since March. Established venues such as The Questors in Ealing face a record loss this year...

CCRC Decision on 44 Post Office Prosecutions (5 Oct 2020)

Rupa Huq: Will the Minister join me in thanking all those at the Post Office and Royal Mail who have kept us all going throughout this crisis? As we know, a disproportionate number are from BME communities, who have experienced such death and suffering, like my constituent Varchas Patel and his family. They are pleased that their appeal is not being contested, but they wonder what action is now being...

Point of Order (28 Sep 2020)

Rupa Huq: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I wonder if I might seek your advice. Exactly a week ago in this Chamber, I asked the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care about the efficacy of vitamin D as an extra bit of armour against coronavirus. He said that he had conducted a trial and there was no effect. It turns out that there was no trial. Apparently it was a National Institute for Health...

Forensic Science Regulator and Biometrics Strategy Bill (25 Sep 2020)

Rupa Huq: I thank the hon. Gentleman for the history lesson. I accept that there was some tinkering under the Brown and Blair Governments, but he must admit that it was under this Government’s previous incarnation that full-on privatisation occurred. That needs addressing. As I said, I do not want to have a fight with him, but I did want to put that on the record.

Forensic Science Regulator and Biometrics Strategy Bill (25 Sep 2020)

Rupa Huq: What a pleasure it is to be called so unexpectedly early in this debate. Obviously your algorithm is working, Mr Speaker, even though the algorithms for other things—testing, exam results—are not. Let us not get into that. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Bristol North West (Darren Jones) on coming so loftily in the private Members’ Bill ballot—a sensation I have never...

Forensic Science Regulator and Biometrics Strategy Bill (25 Sep 2020)

Rupa Huq: The hon. Gentleman is right: we need a mixed-economy approach. Yes, we can allow private firms—I am not saying ban the private sector—but they should coincide with regulation, which is a good thing.

Forensic Science Regulator and Biometrics Strategy Bill (25 Sep 2020)

Rupa Huq: Goodness me, we live and learn, and we learn a new thing every day. What a gory story. It is sad that we are leaving the European Union, because we had access to all those databases, including Europol’s. I think that is a cause for lament, but that is probably another debate for another day.

Forensic Science Regulator and Biometrics Strategy Bill (25 Sep 2020)

Rupa Huq: Unfortunately, the reality of Britain’s forensic services is far removed from the glamour of “NCIS”. Britain’s Sherlockian sleuths and Clouseauian crime detectives do exist in our police forces, and they do a sterling job, but they have been hampered and held back for years—for at least seven years, as my hon. Friend the Member for Bristol North West said. There are three reasons...

Forensic Science Regulator and Biometrics Strategy Bill (25 Sep 2020)

Rupa Huq: I am grateful to the Minister and to you, Mr Speaker, for pointing out what used to go on in the labs of Chorley—not the stuff that happened in Germany, obviously. [Interruption.] This is quite different to the German case. I do not want to pick a fight with the Minister, because we all agree on this. That article was from 2015, and to be fair, some austerity justice cuts have since been...
