[Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Child Prisoners and Detainees: Occupied Palestinian Territories (6 Jan 2016)

Naseem Shah: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Rotherham (Sarah Champion) on securing this very important debate, and it is a great honour to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Chope. I will keep my speech very brief. The hon. Member for Brigg and Goole (Andrew Percy) referred to a doll. I would argue that people do not need dolls to promote hate and violence. What we have before us in Israel...

[Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Child Prisoners and Detainees: Occupied Palestinian Territories (6 Jan 2016)

Naseem Shah: No, I will not, because I will not speak for long. As a former chair of a mental health charity and having my own children, I really struggle to understand why the Israeli Government and the world are silent on dealing with the trauma that these Palestinian children are growing up with. Surely we know that hate breeds hate; laws aside, that is just common sense. There are children who are...

[Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Child Prisoners and Detainees: Occupied Palestinian Territories (6 Jan 2016)

Naseem Shah: Can I just respond to that question, Chair?

[Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Child Prisoners and Detainees: Occupied Palestinian Territories (6 Jan 2016)

Naseem Shah: I will respond very briefly. The fact is that the disproportionality of someone throwing a stone or a rock and being detained for it is not acceptable. That is the reality of what is happening with children.

[Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Child Prisoners and Detainees: Occupied Palestinian Territories (6 Jan 2016)

Naseem Shah: I will finish by clearly making the point that the Israeli Government have not provided any evidence of any child causing a death, or contributing to a death, using a stone. There is no evidence of that.

[Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Preventing Violence Against Women: Role of Men (4 Feb 2016)

Naseem Shah: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Gillan. I congratulate the hon. Member for Paisley and Renfrewshire North (Gavin Newlands) on securing this debate, which is timely given the urgent question earlier today about the visit by the rape apologists from—

[Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Preventing Violence Against Women: Role of Men (4 Feb 2016)

Naseem Shah: When we consider violence against women, we always look at the woman and the family, but there are wider implications. As someone whose mother served time in prison for killing an abusive partner and as a woman whose own forced marriage is well documented, I want to provide a cultural narrative to the debate from a BME perspective and to enlighten people about the issues around women in...

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Donald Trump (18 Jan 2016)

Naseem Shah: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Newport West (Paul Flynn) on leading the debate. I will start by quoting Martin Luther King, because he deserves much more recognition today than does Donald Trump: “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” Therefore, I welcome this discussion and I am grateful to the petitioners, who wanted us to raise our...

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Donald Trump (18 Jan 2016)

Naseem Shah: I will make my point first. I would invite Donald Trump to join us in feeding the homeless at the InTouch Foundation, a Muslim charity that feeds homeless people in the city of Bradford. I would invite him to meet the Muslim volunteers who help at Human Appeal (International), a foundation based in a colleague’s constituency, and all those people who work together on issues that affect us...

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Donald Trump (18 Jan 2016)

Naseem Shah: I respect the views of my colleagues, but I do not agree with an overall ban. I would invite Donald Trump to Bradford West. I also think that the curries are better in Bradford West, but there we go. There is an issue for me about challenging that narrative. In the name of democracy, it is important for us to challenge the hatred speech that comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth. By the same...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Royal Photographic Society (24 Feb 2016)

Naseem Shah: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, whether his Department has been consulted on the transfer of the Royal Photographic Society's collection from the National Media Museum to the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: National Photography Collection (24 Feb 2016)

Naseem Shah: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, what his policy is on a National Photography Museum.

Opposition Day — [19th Allotted Day] — Transitional State Pension Arrangements for Women: Police Funding, Crime and Community Safety (24 Feb 2016)

Naseem Shah: The Chancellor is not present, but will the right hon. Lady confirm that his pledge to protect the police relies on an assumed increase of £369 million in local taxes?

Opposition Day — [19th Allotted Day] — Transitional State Pension Arrangements for Women: Police Funding, Crime and Community Safety (24 Feb 2016)

Naseem Shah: Let me start by paying tribute to my local police, particularly Inspector Tom Horner. He works tirelessly, along with his team, to keep my community and my constituents safe, as does the regional police force. West Yorkshire’s force has lost a considerable amount of funding and more than 20% of its officers, and it is now likely to be asked to find savings, despite having a “protected...

Opposition Day — [19th Allotted Day] — Transitional State Pension Arrangements for Women: Police Funding, Crime and Community Safety (24 Feb 2016)

Naseem Shah: Is my hon. Friend aware that Her Majesty’s inspector of constabularies, Zoë Billingham, who led HMIC’s police effectiveness inspection, the report of which was published last week, described neighbourhood policing as “the cornerstone of the British policing model” and said “I need to raise a warning flag here. Forces’ good performance in preventing crimes is at risk if...

Women and Equalities: Apprenticeships (25 Feb 2016)

Naseem Shah: What steps she is taking to improve the pay for and quality of apprenticeships for women.

Women and Equalities: Apprenticeships (25 Feb 2016)

Naseem Shah: I thank the Minister for her response, but the reality is very different to what is on paper. Results from ComRes commissioned by the Young Women’s Trust in September found that female apprentices earn £4.82 per hour, compared with £5.85 for men. Another survey stated that there is an £8,400 difference in those areas of work where women figure highly, such as social care, childcare and...

Local Government: Ethical Procurement — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (15 Mar 2016)

Naseem Shah: It is lovely to serve under your chairmanship again, Mr Streeter. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Northfield (Richard Burden). Spending is inherently political, as we can see when we think about the Chancellor, and austerity and its effect on communities. Watering down and limiting the impact of local democracy because of disagreement about Government policy is...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Arts: Yorkshire and the Humber (15 Mar 2016)

Naseem Shah: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, how much his Department spent on access to the arts in Yorkshire and Humber region between (a) May 2015 and February 2016 and (b) May 2010 and April 2015.
