Autism Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Sep 2017)

Naseem Shah: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Enfield, Southgate (Bambos Charalambous) on securing the debate. Like many other Members here, I have met constituents who have talked to me not only about the difficulty of diagnosis, but the importance of getting a diagnosis. I have also heard of the difficulty that both children and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Sep 2017)

Naseem Shah: The University of Bradford, in my constituency, makes a compelling case for a medical school teaching all types of health professionals. Will the Prime Minister confirm that those universities where the need is greatest will be given the opportunity to set up medical schools?

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?

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...

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Naseem Shah: I thank the people of Bradford West for re-electing me and putting their faith in me by sending me back to the House. I want to echo the words of many of my colleagues over the last two weeks and pay tribute to all the victims affected by the horrible acts of violence we have seen. I also pay tribute to our emergency service personnel and the tremendous job they do for us on a daily basis. In...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.”

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

Naseem Shah: It is always a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Walker. The subject feels like one we have debated many times since Donald Trump was inaugurated a month ago today. I take the opportunity to thank every single one of my constituents who has used the petition to have their voice heard. Just over 3,500 of them have signed the e-petition on preventing Donald Trump’s state...

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

Naseem Shah: I thank my hon. Friend for making those valid points, with which I concur absolutely.

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...

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...

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...
