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...

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...

Petition - Home Education: Draft Guidance and the Consultation (28 Jun 2018)

Rupa Huq: I would be the first to say that Ealing has some great schools; I know that as I am a product of them myself, I use them as a mum, and I am the sort of MP who goes to assemblies. I will go to my first school fête on Saturday—at Montpelier School, my old primary. However, I also recognise that the formal school system is not for everyone, and that is what this petition is about. It...

Backbench Business - Improving Air Qualitybackbench Business (28 Jun 2018)

Rupa Huq: Does my hon. Friend agree that in London we have made significant progress, with the current Mayor bringing forward the ultra low emission zone and with the proposed toxicity charge? However, sadly, a lot of this seems to have been undermined by this week’s decision—I know she voted the right way—to have an extra runway in Heathrow. People in west London are lamenting that...

Backbench Business - Improving Air Qualitybackbench Business (28 Jun 2018)

Rupa Huq: The hon. Gentleman is making some interesting points about the public purse and joined-up thinking between Departments. He says that road emissions are not included in the clean air strategy. Does he have any comment on aviation? Does he agree with some of us on this side that it seems lamentable that, when 9,000 Londoners a year are dying from toxic air, we have just taken a decision to...

Erasmus Plus Programme (21 Jun 2018)

Rupa Huq: My hon. Friend is making an excellent and powerful speech. I went on one of the predecessor schemes. Has he seen the figures from Universities UK showing that 7.8% of black and minority ethnic graduates who have not studied abroad are unemployed, whereas 4.6% of black and minority ethnic graduates who have taken part in student mobility projects, such as Erasmus+ and its predecessors, are...

Erasmus Plus Programme (21 Jun 2018)

Rupa Huq: Does my hon. Friend agree that, as well as the obvious numerical and financial benefits that higher education brings that we can see in Horizon 2020 funding and the Galileo programme, there are also socio-cultural benefits, as he has alluded to himself, to these type exchanges? The fact is that, two years on from the referendum, we are still in the dark about what will happen post 2020. That...

Refugee Family Reunion (21 Jun 2018)

Rupa Huq: rose—

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Music Venues (21 Jun 2018)

Rupa Huq: What steps the Government are taking to support live music venues.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Music Venues (21 Jun 2018)

Rupa Huq: From Arcade Fire at Wembley to Lovebox at Gunnersbury Park, big gigs in west London are booming, but small venues are on the brink of extinction. The Spinning Wheel in Ealing is now a Sainsbury’s and The Castle in Acton is earmarked to become student housing. What are the Government doing to protect our pubs from rocketing business rates, greedy developers and, now, the shortage of CO2...

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

Rupa Huq: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech. In the London Borough of Ealing, on the other side of London, we have had a Windrush physical memorial and events for kids in schools since 1998. Does she agree that the word “Windrush” is meant to be a celebration of the kinds of achievements she is talking about, but that it has now turned into one we associate with tragedy because...

Immigration Rules: Paragraph 322(5) (13 Jun 2018)

Rupa Huq: Does the hon. Lady agree that, given the association of that rule with terrorism provisions, the implications are wide ranging and can leave a black mark on people’s lives forever? It is difficult for them ever to get a visa or to work anywhere worldwide after all that.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Sustainable Electricity Generation (12 Jun 2018)

Rupa Huq: What steps he is taking to encourage investment in environmentally sustainable electricity generation.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Sustainable Electricity Generation (12 Jun 2018)

Rupa Huq: The Minister talks a good talk, but rooftop solar panel take-up is at a seven-year low. In my seat, Alternergy has gone from topping the Fintech 100 to an 80% drop in business since the end of the feed-in tariff was announced in 2012. What assurances does the Minister have for such firms after the scheme closes next year?

G7 (11 Jun 2018)

Rupa Huq: Does the Prime Minister share my concern that the good work she described coming out of the G7 seems deliberately to be having the shine taken off it by President Trump and his tweets—insisting that it should be a G8 and pushing on with his tariffs—and his general inability to play by the collective rules? Or are blond buffoons who seek to undermine her at every turn now becoming...

Airports National Policy Statement — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Jun 2018)

Rupa Huq: Following the logic that people can change their minds, would the hon. Gentleman not agree that this Government should also now change their mind on Brexit—something else that sounded good but is now unravelling?
