Tobacco Control Plan: Money Laundering and Tax Evasion (Azerbaijan) (19 Oct 2017)

Rupa Huq: Will the Minister give way?

Tobacco Control Plan: Money Laundering and Tax Evasion (Azerbaijan) (19 Oct 2017)

Rupa Huq: Two years ago, the then Prime Minister declared that London was not “a place to stash dodgy cash”. A year ago, in front of 40 Governments from around the world, the UK committed to a public register of foreign companies owning UK property to prevent those who are corrupt from being able “to move, launder and hide illicit funds through London’s property market”....

Tobacco Control Plan: Money Laundering and Tax Evasion (Azerbaijan) (19 Oct 2017)

Rupa Huq: Does my right hon. Friend share my concern that since the flourish of the anti-corruption summit—and David Cameron has completely left the crime scene—this seems to have been put in the too-difficult-to-think-about box? If the Government really want a global Britain, they should table the necessary legislation as soon as possible and not use the excuse of Brexit to kick this into...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: London Underground (19 Oct 2017)

Rupa Huq: Whether we are talking about the 1974 Piccadilly line trains, which are almost as old as me, or the even less reliable 1992 Central line ones, autumnal leaf fall at the moment is causing havoc for the above-ground sections of the tube in suburban locations. Does the Minister know when these old workhorses that are now past their sell-by date are going to be sent to the knacker’s yard?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Oct 2017)

Rupa Huq: Last week, all parties backed a near unanimous motion on Ealing Council to introduce a public spaces protection order outside the Marie Stopes family planning clinic there, because three decades of protests by pro-lifers and one year of protests by pro-choicers have made it impossible for residents to pass along the pavement and have obstructed women having legal NHS healthcare. Will the...

Free Childcare — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Rupa Huq: My hon. Friend mentioned the Pre-school Learning Alliance. Some Government Members say that they have had enough of experts, but does she agree that they should listen more to groups on the ground, such as my constituent Jane Reddish and her group What About The Children? Its excellent report on the 30-hours policy raises many of the same concerns as my hon. Friend, specifically pertaining to...

Uk Plans for Leaving the EU (9 Oct 2017)

Rupa Huq: The writing is not on the wall for this Government as some say: it is just slowly sliding off. Why did the Prime Minister choose to deliver her statement from Florence when Ealing town hall would have had her? What was the cost of flying the entire Cabinet there in pounds or euros or in terms of the carbon footprint—any will do?

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Rupa Huq: I remember the hon. Lady’s former colleague. We did an interview together when the election was announced, and I am sorry to hear of these tragic things. Before I was elected in 2015, a fake Twitter account called “Dr Huq” was set up, which said I lied about the NHS and put out all sorts of vile messages. It was shut down only after I was elected. I wonder if the hon. Lady...

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Rupa Huq: I heard the point that was made about Ealing. I am not sure whether it concerned the election in Ealing Central and Acton, where I was the winner, but I want to dissociate myself from those stories because they were nothing to do with the Labour party. I was a candidate in Ealing Central and Acton in the 2015 general election, and there are pictures and footage of the fracas that ensued when...

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Rupa Huq: In a few short weeks’ time, students up and down the country, including at the University of West London in my seat, will be going back for a new term. This is supposed to be an exciting time, but it is also an anxious one, because the fee regime they have been subjected to is continually changing by stealth. I am not just talking about the trebling since 2010; even since I have been an...

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Rupa Huq: The Secretary of State has referred to the policy of no fees quite a few times now. Can she confirm that in 2005 she stood on a manifesto commitment—and campaigned and won her seat—on precisely that policy of no fees?

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: UK Nationals in the EU: Rights — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Rupa Huq: What does my hon. Friend make of an email that I had from David Hulmes, an ex-constituent, now in Lyon in France who says that the EU position was initially generous but seems to have hardened? The reason he gives is the settled status after Brexit, which is insulting, inhuman to people who have been living here for years, and should be scrapped.

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: UK Nationals in the EU: Rights — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Rupa Huq: The figures from the Library said that 21% of UK citizens in the rest of the EU are over 65, so that is not a majority. The 49% figure is for over 50s, who may be economically active and contributing, paying taxes and all those things.

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: UK Nationals in the EU: Rights — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Rupa Huq: My hon. Friend is describing convincingly this Government’s catalogue of errors involving leaks and letters wrongly sent. Regarding discrimination, is he aware of the figures released by the House of Commons Library? In 2011, 49% of British citizens living elsewhere in the EU were over the age of 50, compared with only 15% of EU nationals here. In our aging society, age discrimination...

Free Childcare Entitlement (6 Sep 2017)

Rupa Huq: I must confess that I was something of a secret fan of the Minister, because in a previous incarnation he was very helpful to me with an issue my constituents had. No one is arguing against the idea of 30 hours, but if the picture is as rosy as he paints, how come there are allegations of nurseries forced into bankruptcy and a policy on its knees less than a week in? If people such as those...

Letting Agent Fees (Tenants) — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (6 Sep 2017)

Rupa Huq: Does my hon. Friend also agree that this problem is also an outer London problem? It used to be the kind of thing that was associated with inner cities. In my constituency of Ealing Central and Acton, 34.4% of people are in private rented properties, compared with 16% nationally. We have a landlord register, which is a good idea. Does she agree?

Letting Agent Fees (Tenants) — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (6 Sep 2017)

Rupa Huq: I draw the hon. Gentleman’s attention to a quotation from an article in The Daily Telegraph on 27 August. This touches on the point that my hon. Friend the Member for Mitcham and Morden (Siobhain McDonagh) made about young people. Does he agree with this? “If you are under 35, it’s likely there is little chance of you ever owning your own home. No doubt you are also fed up...

Letting Agent Fees (Tenants) — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (6 Sep 2017)

Rupa Huq: I neglected to say that the article I mentioned was written by the Minister’s former colleague Rob Wilson, the former MP for Reading East who was defeated at the last general election. He writes that the Conservatives should get a grip on housing if they are ever to win again.

Oral Answers to Questions — Electoral Commission Committee: Voter Registration and Boundary Commission Review (20 Jul 2017)

Rupa Huq: What discussions the Committee has had with the commission on the effect of (a) recent rises in voter registration and (b) the 2017 general election on the conclusions of the most recent Boundary Commission review.

Oral Answers to Questions — Electoral Commission Committee: Voter Registration and Boundary Commission Review (20 Jul 2017)

Rupa Huq: As my hon. Friend points out, 2.9 million new people registered to vote and became part of a record electorate in the recent general election. There was a similar spike before last year’s referendum. Surely we should now heed the Electoral Commission’s recommendation that boundary reviews take place after a major electoral event, to take those new people into account and to ensure...
