Women’S Suffrage Centenary (6 Feb 2018)

Rupa Huq: I am proud to be one of those making what the Home Secretary described as the most diverse Parliament ever. I am not only one of the one third who are women, but one of the 7.8% who are from black and minority ethnic backgrounds. My maternal grandmother was illiterate; her passport had a thumbprint in it because she could not write her own name. Does the Home Secretary agree that on a day...

Baby Leave for Members of Parliament (1 Feb 2018)

Rupa Huq: I am grateful to my right hon. and learned Friend for giving way, and I wish you a happy birthday, Madam Deputy Speaker—I will not give you the bumps. My right hon. and learned Friend talked about her own experiences, and she was very fortunate to have our hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Erdington (Jack Dromey) by her side. She also talked about pairing. In personal life, not...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Childcare Funding (29 Jan 2018)

Rupa Huq: A recent survey by the Pre-school Learning Alliance has found that one fifth of nurseries do not think they will be financially viable in a year’s time. Will the Minister—I know he likes his parties—therefore commit to review the funding rates before more places rated “good” and “outstanding” by Ofsted close down?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (29 Jan 2018)

Rupa Huq: Visiting my old school, Notting Hill and Ealing High, which produced not only me but the ex-Conservative MP Angela Rumbold, I found concern, among staff and students, about political imbalance in the new A-level history syllabus. It completely omits the 1945-51 Labour Government, asks candidates for Conservative strengths and Labour weaknesses and stops in 1997. By deleting Labour, are they...

Carillion and Public Sector Outsourcing (24 Jan 2018)

Rupa Huq: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Carillion and Public Sector Outsourcing (24 Jan 2018)

Rupa Huq: I echo the words of my hon. Friend the Member for Stoke-on-Trent Central (Gareth Snell): it is a pleasure to see you back in your place, Mr Deputy Speaker. I wonder whether my hon. Friend the Member for Hemsworth (Jon Trickett) shared my horror today at pages 4 and 5 of the Daily Mirror, which report: “‘Greed and lunacy’ as Carillion paid shareholders £500m while...

Leaving the European Union — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (22 Jan 2018)

Rupa Huq: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Moon. When I speak in these petition debates on a Monday afternoon, it is usually because of the weight of popular opinion and the number of signatures that have been recorded in my constituency, but in the case of today’s petition, with 137,409 signatures, only 132 people in Ealing Central and Acton signed it. I had intended to...

Leaving the European Union — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (22 Jan 2018)

Rupa Huq: Okay, I will. My speech is really just an outgrown intervention, so I will not take loads of interventions, but I will take the hon. Gentleman’s, because he took mine.

Leaving the European Union — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (22 Jan 2018)

Rupa Huq: The hon. Gentleman makes a wise point, which shows the danger of standing up and trying to make a speech on the spot. I agree that discontent with the system and with politics has made people sign the petition. Arguably that also explains things such as the Trump phenomenon, which was kind of a vote for “none of the above”. When people are so frustrated with elites and people in...

Leaving the European Union — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (22 Jan 2018)

Rupa Huq: I completely sympathise and agree with what the hon. Lady says; I have found the same thing. There is a small business called Mooch on Northfield Avenue, near where I live. It sells knick-knacks and gifts—a bit like Paperchase, but a small-business equivalent—and it opened just before 23 June. When it had to restock, the price of everything had gone up. It has not chosen the same...

Leaving the European Union — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (22 Jan 2018)

Rupa Huq: As a London MP like me, has the hon. Gentleman had representations from people who work in the City and are worried—based not on reading The Guardian but on their own working lives—that their EU passporting rights could be lost? People have said to me that as we were not in the euro or part of Schengen and had a generous rebate, we were only about 60% in anyway. Does the hon....

Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill (19 Jan 2018)

Rupa Huq: It is a pleasure to follow my near north-west London neighbour in one direction, the hon. Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman), and to support a Bill introduced by a north-west London neighbour in another direction, my hon. Friend the Member for Westminster North (Ms Buck). When we consider legislation, there is usually a sophisticated lobbying operation through Change.org and 38 Degrees...
