Access to NHS Dentists (12 Sep 2017)

Imran Hussain: Will the Minister give way?

Access to NHS Dentists (12 Sep 2017)

Imran Hussain: I welcome the review of the system, in particular the dental contract prototypes. As the Minister has outlined, one issue is that many of the contracts, as in Bradford, are ancient contracts that have not taken account of the demographic changes over time. Some of the most disadvantaged areas are hit the worst by that. Can he give a definitive time by which the prototypes will be completed...

Access to NHS Dentists (12 Sep 2017)

Imran Hussain: My hon. Friend will be aware that in Bradford 40% of people do not have an NHS dentist. Many of them have applied unsuccessfully. Does she agree that it is unacceptable that only one in 20 practices has its doors open to new patients?

Violence in Rakhine State (5 Sep 2017)

Imran Hussain: Over the weekend, I met members of the Rohingya community in my constituency. They told me horrific stories of some of the most grave crimes against humanity. They did not even know whether their friends and family were dead or alive. They told me horrific stories of women and children being burned and tortured. They also told me that during her time in custody, they had led some of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Offenders: Education and Employment (5 Sep 2017)

Imran Hussain: The chief inspectors of prisons and of probation recently issued a devastating report on the Government’s flagship community rehabilitation companies, which stated: “None of the prisoners had been helped into employment by through-the-gate services”. Will the Minister commit to an urgent review of the role of CRCs, including their delivery of education and employment...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Local Authorities: Financial Support (17 Jul 2017)

Imran Hussain: What discussions he has had with local authority leaders on financial support for local authorities since the Government announced their policy on the 100% business rates retention.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Local Authorities: Financial Support (17 Jul 2017)

Imran Hussain: Plans for the 100% retention of business rates fell at the general election and were not introduced in the Queen’s Speech. Will the Minister explain whether the Government still plan to legislate for 100% retention? What should already cash-strapped local authorities do in the interim as the revenue support grant is phased out?

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) Bill: Israel and Palestinian Talks (5 Jul 2017)

Imran Hussain: The hon. Gentleman makes a fine point in respect of human rights abuses, but one thing that has not been spoken about today as much as it should be is the infringement of the human rights of children through the use of military courts. Will he join me in saying that their use is not only inhumane but unlawful?

Attorney General: Hate Crime: Aggravated Offences Regime (29 Jun 2017)

Imran Hussain: What assessment he has made of the effect of the aggravated offences regime on the level of successful prosecutions for hate crime.

Attorney General: Hate Crime: Aggravated Offences Regime (29 Jun 2017)

Imran Hussain: As has been stated, the Law Commission has previously called on the Government to review hate crime legislation. Will the Government bring forward proposals for the review to ensure that the legislation is effective and sufficiently broad in scope?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (25 Apr 2017)

Imran Hussain: In correspondence with the Criminal Cases Review Commission over recent months, I have repeatedly asked it to release and review crucial evidence that is vital to the case of one of my constituents. However, the CCRC has been less than helpful. As the deadline for the evidence to be deleted approaches, my constituent’s chances of justice could be killed for good. Will the Minister step...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: United Nations (Aid Programmes) (29 Mar 2017)

Imran Hussain: As President Trump slashes aid spending, it is more important than ever that global, outward-looking nations live up to their responsibilities, not shirk them, to fill the aid funding gaps. Will the Minister commit to working with our partners on increasing their aid spending, to show that despite Brexit the UK can still be a global leader embracing its global responsibilities?

DFID’s Programme in Nigeria — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (23 Mar 2017)

Imran Hussain: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, West Derby (Stephen Twigg) on securing another important debate. In particular, I congratulate the hon. Member for Mid Derbyshire (Pauline Latham) on making a very informative contribution. She expressed particular concerns about education and electricity. I share those...

Syrian Refugee Crisis — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (23 Mar 2017)

Imran Hussain: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Stringer. May I say—this is the first time I have had the opportunity to do so in an official capacity—that I am sure all hon. Members will join me in offering our sincere condolences to the family and friends of victims of the attack yesterday afternoon? We offer our greatest thanks to PC Keith Palmer, who fell in the line of...

Syrian Refugee Crisis — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (23 Mar 2017)

Imran Hussain: Of course I welcome that, and it is a point well made. However, I hope the hon. Gentleman will agree that there are at least that many unaccompanied children in Europe who are at serious risk. Some have already been exploited and many are at serious risk of exploitation through criminally organised gangs. I believe we have an absolute duty to those children. To say we will accept a very small...

Syrian Refugee Crisis — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (23 Mar 2017)

Imran Hussain: I absolutely agree that capacity is important. Whether or not we have the capacity is something we could talk about further. I certainly believe we have more capacity than the cap that has been put in place. The hon. Gentleman raised the point earlier that some local authorities are coming forward to say they believe they have more capacity, but he makes a generally valid point. My strong...

Local Government Finance (22 Feb 2017)

Imran Hussain: I refer the House to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. I also serve as a local councillor on Bradford Council. Mr Deputy Speaker kindly added my name to the list of speakers. I promised him that I would be as brief as possible. I will confine my comments to the revenue support grant, to which an hon. Friend alluded earlier. I am disappointed that the Secretary of...

Local Government Finance (22 Feb 2017)

Imran Hussain: My hon. Friend is absolutely right, and I will come on to that later in relation to my own local authority, where the cuts are having a devastating impact. The Secretary of State talked about the fair funding formula, as have many other hon. Members. I accept that, as some Members have rightly said, the needs of rural and urban areas need to be looked at. He rightly said that this was...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Topical Questions (22 Feb 2017)

Imran Hussain: The Rohingya are among the most persecuted people in the world today. In recent weeks and months, they have faced new waves of violence perpetrated by the Burmese Government. How much of the £95 million budget for the Burma project will go towards much-needed assistance for the Rohingya, and what steps are the Government taking to ensure that that happens?
