Casey Report (6 Dec 2016)

Naseem Shah: While I second the invitation to Bradford from my colleague, the hon. Member for Shipley (Philip Davies), I do not second the other half of his question. How will the Minister address the structural inequalities affecting Muslim communities, and especially Muslim women, which frustrate their aspiration of progressive engagement with society?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Dec 2016)

Naseem Shah: Is the Leader of the House aware of reports of Rohingyan children being massacred and thrown into fires, of Rohingyan women being raped, and of houses being razed to the ground? What representations have the Government made to the Burmese authorities or the military in that regard?

Sky: 21ST Century Fox Takeover Bid (12 Dec 2016)

Naseem Shah: I would like to give the Minister a second chance to answer the question from my hon. Friend the Member for Cardiff West (Kevin Brennan). Did the Prime Minister discuss this deal with Murdoch back in September in New York?

Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Dec 2016)

Naseem Shah: Yesterday, I met the chief executive officer of Provident Financial, one of two FTSE 100 companies in Bradford—yes, outside London, right in the heart of the north, Provident being in my constituency. We agreed that for Bradford to fulfil the potential of its young people, we need to have better educational outcomes and better transport. We have been overlooked for too long, so can I invite...

NHS and Social Care Funding (11 Jan 2017)

Naseem Shah: I am grateful for this opportunity to raise some of the serious concerns that have been caused by this Government’s refusal to fully fund our NHS. The Government are running out of places to cut corners to save money on the NHS. They are showing a lack of respect and compassion as they fail to provide the healthcare that people need and deserve. Those who need care at home are having to...

NHS and Social Care Funding (11 Jan 2017)

Naseem Shah: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. Let me turn now to pharmacies. This Government fail to grasp the fact that cuts to one service will have a direct impact on another. Let me be clear: only two months ago, I stood on the Floor of this House to condemn the proposed 12% cut to community pharmacies, which could mean the closure of 25% of the 42 pharmacies in my Bradford West...

Kashmir (19 Jan 2017)

Naseem Shah: I congratulate the hon. Member for Bury North (Mr Nuttall) on securing this timely and important debate. It is said that in war there are no winners, only losers. If so, the people of the Kashmir region have surely paid too great a price. The UN resolution was passed in 1948—almost 70 years ago—and we seem no closer to self-determination in the Kashmir region than we did then. As we...

Kashmir (19 Jan 2017)

Naseem Shah: I absolutely agree that we need to push for an independent inquiry. We are not asking the Government to prescribe how Pakistan and India resolve the entrenched issue of peace in Kashmir, but everyone here will recognise that, with the situation as it is on the ground—with civilians being killed, oppressed and impoverished—there can be no progress towards peace or a resolution. We have an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (23 Jan 2017)

Naseem Shah: In 2016 Bradford university, which is in my constituency, was listed by among the top 200 most international universities, but has seen its international student numbers fall by nearly 45% since 2010. As my hon. Friend the Member for Neath (Christina Rees) has outlined, the benefit that international students bring to cities like Bradford cannot be overstated. What will the Minister do to...

Changes in Us Immigration Policy (30 Jan 2017)

Naseem Shah: I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Doncaster North (Edward Miliband) on securing this timely debate. I have listened to it, and I now feel rather emotional, speaking as a Muslim Member of Parliament. People have talked about refugees, but I will talk, as a Muslim woman, about Islamophobia. As my right hon. Friend the Member for Normanton, Pontefract and Castleford (Yvette...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Marriage: Humanism (31 Jan 2017)

Naseem Shah: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, with reference to section 14 of the Marriage (Same Sex) Couples Act 2013, what recent assessment her Department has made of the potential merits of legalising humanist marriages; and whether the Government has plans to bring forward legislative proposals to legalise such marriages.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (1 Feb 2017)

Naseem Shah: In 2015, my constituent Samia Shahid was lured to her death in Pakistan, where she was brutally raped and murdered. Will the Prime Minister join me in reiterating the commitment of this House and this country that we will not tolerate violence against women, and encourage the Pakistani Government to continue in their efforts to get justice for our British girl, Samia Shahid?

Maintained Nursery Schools Funding — [Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (1 Feb 2017)

Naseem Shah: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Warrington North (Helen Jones) for securing this timely, much-needed debate. There is a huge misunderstanding about the treasure we have in maintained nurseries and the services they provide, and I welcome the opportunity to talk specifically about why the service should be offered considerably more protection from the Government. Only two weeks ago, I...

Maintained Nursery Schools Funding — [Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (1 Feb 2017)

Naseem Shah: Absolutely; I agree with the hon. Gentleman’s point. As I was saying, the settlement does not seem to recognise the high-quality services that they provide or compensate for the unique challenges that they face, and it will do little to ensure their long-term sustainability. Nursery schools are the one aspect of the education system where the gap in attainment between the poorest children...

Prevent Strategy — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (1 Feb 2017)

Naseem Shah: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I congratulate the hon. Member for Telford (Lucy Allan) on securing the debate. It is interesting to follow two colleagues from the Home Affairs Committee; we took a lot of evidence on the subject last year and produced a report. I am sure my right hon. Friend the Member for Leicester East (Keith Vaz) will also give his version of...
