BAME Communities: Stop and Search — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (23 May 2018)

Naseem Shah: I am really struggling with this. What I am saying, and what I have put before the House today, is the fact of the disproportionality of young black men being stopped and searched in the first instance. Had we not had that disproportionality— if we had it equal—does he not agree that those figures would then be more fairly representative—

BAME Communities: Stop and Search — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (23 May 2018)

Naseem Shah: Thank you, Mr Owen, for again calling me to speak. I thank all the right hon. and hon. Members who have contributed to this debate: the hon. Member for Shipley (Philip Davies); my hon. Friends the Members for Ealing Central and Acton (Dr Huq) and for Manchester, Gorton (Afzal Khan); our shadow Home Secretary, my right hon. Friend the Member for Hackney North and Stoke Newington (Ms Abbott);...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Jul 2018)

Naseem Shah: Thank you, Mr Speaker. On Saturday, we had the international day of remembrance for victims of honour abuse. This Friday, it will be two years to the day since the rape and murder of my constituent Samia Shahid, who was lured to Pakistan. I thank colleagues in the House, and, in particular, the leader of my party, for showing solidarity with the #honourher campaign today. Will the Prime...

TOEIC Visa Cancellations — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (4 Sep 2018)

Naseem Shah: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Ilford North (Wes Streeting) on securing this important debate. I reiterate the thanks to my right hon. Friend the Member for East Ham (Stephen Timms), who is not here, for all his work, and to the many others who have spoken passionately. When I was on the Home Affairs Committee, we took evidence from many students. I was part of the evidence...

TOEIC Visa Cancellations — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (4 Sep 2018)

Naseem Shah: Does the Minister know how many people have been successful in their out-of-country appeal? Have those who have been successful been offered compensation for the Home Office’s mistakes?

TOEIC Visa Cancellations — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (4 Sep 2018)

Naseem Shah: Will the Minister give way?

Women and Equalities: Shared Parental Leave (13 Sep 2018)

Naseem Shah: Many colleagues have highlighted their concern about take-up being just over 1% and I must push the Government further. Will the Minister spell out what exactly this Government will do to ensure that taking up the scheme is a real option for parents?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Naseem Shah: I was really shocked when the hon. Member for Mid Norfolk (George Freeman) said that there is weariness. It was Halloween yesterday, and that Budget was damn scary, never mind wearying. As for asking public sector workers to tighten their belts, it was not about tightening their belts—it was about going and accessing food banks. That is what that Budget was about, and what the Government...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Naseem Shah: I absolutely share those concerns about that expenditure when we are not investing in the infrastructure we need. What we heard yesterday, and more of today, was sticking plaster options—those are the only solutions that this Government have come up with. That is one thing that the Conservatives are absolutely the masters of—saying, “We are investing £2 billion, but actually we...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Nurseries: Breakfast Clubs (13 Nov 2018)

Naseem Shah: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, whether nurseries receive funding for breakfast clubs as part of the same funding arrangements as (a) infant, (b) junior and (c) secondary schools.

Women and Equalities: Gender Pay Gap (15 Nov 2018)

Naseem Shah: It is disappointing that the Government rejected the Women and Equalities Committee recommendation of a cross-departmental race equality strategy. Can the Minister at least commit to making the reporting of a race pay gap compulsory, in line with the gender pay gap?

Written Answers — Department for Education: Schools: Bullying (6 Dec 2018)

Naseem Shah: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what recent estimate he has made of the level of bullying in schools; and whether there has been an increase in the level of bullying of BAME children in schools.

Written Answers — Department for Education: Further Education: Pay (13 Dec 2018)

Naseem Shah: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what assessment he has made of the effect of recent changes to pay levels in further education colleges on the ability of such institutions to recruit and retain staff.

Women and Equalities: Shared Parental Leave (20 Dec 2018)

Naseem Shah: Although I welcome the Government’s efforts to reduce the gender pay gap, they pledged in 2017 to tackle racial pay disparities. In the same year, Baroness McGregor-Smith found that greater workplace diversity could boost Britain’s economy by £24 billion a year. When do the Government plan to act on their pledge? Our economy could certainly do with an extra £24 billion, given the Brexit...

Business of the House (Today): No Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (16 Jan 2019)

Naseem Shah: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Business of the House (Today): No Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (16 Jan 2019)

Naseem Shah: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Business of the House (Today): No Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (16 Jan 2019)

Naseem Shah: Will the hon. Gentleman confirm—it escapes me—whether the Conservative party manifesto also said, “We will increase food banks, increase child poverty and cut education funding in real terms”?

Business of the House (Today): No Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (16 Jan 2019)

Naseem Shah: I thank the Leader of the Opposition for tabling this motion of no confidence, which I will support in the Lobby this evening. I came into politics challenged with trying to make a difference to the lives of the ordinary people of Bradford West—trying to be part of a system that is about putting people first, not about people clinging to power and positions, with self-preservation at the...
