President Trump: State Visit — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (20 Feb 2017)

Naseem Shah: I thank the hon. Gentleman for making those very valid points. Last year, in this very Chamber when we first debated a potential ban on Trump visiting the UK, I went on public record to say that I wanted him to come, because I wanted him to visit Bradford West. I invited him out for a curry and I wanted him to see the contribution that Muslims make to this country and to my constituency. I...

President Trump: State Visit — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (20 Feb 2017)

Naseem Shah: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the debate is not about legitimacy? No one is saying “Let’s not invite President Trump to the UK.” We are saying, “Let’s not roll out the red carpet and honour his rhetoric.”

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (20 Feb 2017)

Naseem Shah: Of the 17,000 sanctions on benefit claimants in Bradford West in the past six and a half years, how many could have been avoided if the Government had the yellow card warning system in place? Why has it not been rolled out nationally, following a successful trial in 2016, and when are this Government going to get it done?

Unaccompanied Children (Greece and Italy) (23 Feb 2017)

Naseem Shah: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Wirral South (Alison McGovern) and others on securing this very timely debate. I speak today not only from a position of experience, having fostered a young Afghan refugee and provided lodgings for a number of refugees who presented without parents, but as an Opposition Member and as a member of the Home Affairs Committee, which only yesterday...

Unaccompanied Children (Greece and Italy) (23 Feb 2017)

Naseem Shah: I thank the hon. Lady for her intervention, and I absolutely agree. Lily Caprani, deputy executive director of UNICEF, had this to say on the business model of trafficking: “There is one way to destroy the business model and that is to provide safe and legal routes to children. They turn to people traffickers when they have no other option. For obvious reasons there are many ways to prevent...

UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 Mar 2017)

Naseem Shah: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Streeter. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Brent Central (Dawn Butler) for securing this debate. Her powerful words made me emotional. This debate is so timely. This day gives us an opportunity to reflect on the past, the present and the future, and to address the stark discrimination that so many people in this country face. While...

UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 Mar 2017)

Naseem Shah: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. I absolutely agree with her sentiments. It is a harsh reality that many young black and Asian children, and children of other ethnicity, grow up in this country without the same opportunities as their peers. It is a harsh truth for those who will work just as hard but will be paid less—those who have their chances stifled from birth because of...

UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 Mar 2017)

Naseem Shah: I thank my hon. Friend for her intervention, and I will mention that later in my speech—I am very much aware of it and I agree with her. Sadly, what I have described is a well-evidenced truth, as my hon. Friend has just pointed out. We only need to look at the House of Commons research on representation in public life from June 2016 to see the scale of the challenge before us. Those from...

UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 Mar 2017)

Naseem Shah: The hon. Member for Beckenham (Bob Stewart), who is no longer in his seat, mentioned constituencies, and it is important to touch upon that issue before I close my speech. He said that we in Britain have changed regarding refugees, in that families do not want to take Syrian refugee children. I am very proud to come from Bradford. It is a city of sanctuary. We have held events in Bradford...

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?

Petition - English Language and English Literature Gcse-Level Examinations: World Hijab Day (1 Feb 2017)

Naseem Shah: Does the hon. Lady agree that, although it is right for us to mark World Hijab Day in this Chamber, we must acknowledge and recognise that some women are forced to wear the hijab? Ultimately, this is about women’s right to choose to wear what they want to, and for us to stand against the bigotry that we have seen lately in this country. For example, women have had their hijabs ripped off...

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...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Road Traffic Offences: Sentencing (29 Jun 2017)

Naseem Shah: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, when he plans to publish feedback from the consultation into driving offences and penalties relating to causing death or serious injury that closed on 1 February 2017.

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

Naseem Shah: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for inviting me to speak in this important debate. Since the Trump Administration came to power, on the surface they have projected an image of trying to bring Israel and Palestine back into talks. However, the language of Trump has been meek, especially in condemnation of settlement building. Emboldened, the Knesset has reacted by passing more extreme legislation, and...

Written Answers — Home Office: Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman (5 Sep 2017)

Naseem Shah: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what compensation payments her Department has made at the request of the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman in each of the last three years.

Violence in Rakhine State (5 Sep 2017)

Naseem Shah: The Minister may struggle with identifying the situation as genocide, but systematic rape, massacres and the burning of buildings of a minority community amount to ethnic cleansing to try to force it out of the country, if not out of existence. That is genocide. When can we expect an appropriate response to that effect from the Minister or the Government?

Written Answers — Home Office: Entry Clearances: Canada (11 Sep 2017)

Naseem Shah: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many marriage visa applications from Canadian nationals were overturned on appeal by her Department in (a) 2014, (b) 2015 and (c) 2016.

Written Answers — Home Office: Entry Clearances: Canada (11 Sep 2017)

Naseem Shah: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many marriage visa applications from Australian nationals were overturned on appeal in (a) 2014, (b) 2015 and (c) 2016.
