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...

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?

Occupied Palestinian Territories: Israeli Settlements (9 Feb 2017)

Naseem Shah: Like many in this House who are determined to see a peaceful solution in the middle east, I welcome this timely debate, which allows us to reaffirm our support for lasting peace and to commend the Government on signing UN resolution 2334 last December. As the Palestinians have done since 1993, I recognise and accept a two-state solution and Israel’s existence. However, the last two weeks...

Occupied Palestinian Territories: Israeli Settlements (9 Feb 2017)

Naseem Shah: rose—

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...

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...

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...

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?

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.

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...

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...

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...

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...

Written Answers — Home Office: Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman (10 Jan 2017)

Naseem Shah: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what information her Department holds on the total amount of compensation payments it has made at the request of the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman in each of the last five years.

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigration (9 Jan 2017)

Naseem Shah: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what information her Department holds on how much compensation has been paid as a result of the mis-administration of applications for indefinite leave to remain in 2015.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Syria: Armed Conflict (9 Jan 2017)

Naseem Shah: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent discussions he has had with his international counterparts on the evacuation of civilians from eastern Aleppo since 14 December 2016.

Written Answers — Department for Education: English Language: Education (9 Jan 2017)

Naseem Shah: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how much was provided for English for speakers of other languages classes in (a) Yorkshire and the Humber, (b) Bradford district and (c) Bradford West constituency in (i) 2012, (ii) 2013, (iii) 2014 and (iv) 2015.
