Defence: Topical Questions (20 Sep 2021)

Carol Monaghan: Following on from the question from the right hon. Member for New Forest East (Dr Lewis) about those individuals who are working with British military forces in Afghanistan, what is going to happen to those who find that they have been refused under the ARAP scheme? Will they then be referred to the Home Office or to the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, or are they being left in...

Withdrawal from Afghanistan: Joint Committee (15 Sep 2021)

Carol Monaghan: I wonder whether the hon. Gentleman would share his contact list with me, because he seems to be able to contact the Home Secretary directly while many of us cannot. We have similar cases to his, and I congratulate him on having success with his case, but it might be helpful if he could do that.

Withdrawal from Afghanistan: Joint Committee (15 Sep 2021)

Carol Monaghan: We have another issue, and that is family reunion. The family reunion visa will not be suitable for the situation that we face. There is currently a 12-year-old girl in my constituency who was separated from her parents in the chaos at Kabul airport, and we cannot get the parents out. Surely we need to look very carefully at how we are going to operate family reunion in cases such as that.

Points of Order (14 Sep 2021)

Carol Monaghan: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. Yesterday, during the statement on Afghanistan, the Minister with responsibility for Afghan relocation—the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, the hon. Member for Louth and Horncastle (Victoria Atkins)—said that “we have to be very careful about offering either encouragement or support for people who may be in a perilous...

Business of the House (9 Sep 2021)

Carol Monaghan: The historic tall ship Glenlee is of great cultural importance to Glasgow and, indeed, Scotland. Although it sits in the constituency of my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow Central (Alison Thewliss), all of us Glasgow MPs know how important it is to the citizens of Glasgow. As the Glenlee sits within the COP26 exclusion zone, it has been forced to close for not just the duration of the...

Education: Universities: Physical Teaching (6 Sep 2021)

Carol Monaghan: I hope that all our standards of dress meet your expectations, Mr Speaker. It is good to be back, but in the previous academic year many of us were shocked to see the scenes of international students having to queue at a food bank in London because economic opportunities for them had dried up due to lockdown. What provision has the Secretary of State put in place to support international...

Education: Topical Questions (6 Sep 2021)

Carol Monaghan: The Council for At-Risk Academics has called on the UK Government to set up a fellowship scheme for scholars at risk in Afghanistan similar to the PAUSE scheme in France. Will the Secretary of State consider implementing such a scheme?

Afghanistan (18 Aug 2021)

Carol Monaghan: Of course we are grateful to the Government for making the commitment to welcoming new refugees to the UK, but does the hon. Gentleman share my concern that, alongside the UNHCR definition of what is required to be a refugee, the UK Government have introduced additional requirements, which will make the process far more complex and make it far more difficult to prove that these refugees are...

Afghanistan (18 Aug 2021)

Carol Monaghan: Twenty per cent.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Government Departments: Complaints (20 Jul 2021)

Armed Forces Bill: New Clause 1 - Duty of care to service personnel (13 Jul 2021)

Carol Monaghan: I start by paying tribute to members of the armed forces both for the work they do in ordinary times and for the work they have done over the last 15 or 16 months with their support for services during the pandemic. I also want to pay tribute to the organisations that have taken time to engage with Members during the passage of this Bill to ensure that we are fully informed about as many...

Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill (12 Jul 2021)

Carol Monaghan: Education and Scots law are devolved, so I will keep my comments brief; hopefully, that will help move things along this evening. However, the issue of free speech is also pertinent to Scotland. Many concerns have been raised about academic freedom and the role universities play in championing free speech. This Bill is being presented in a worrying climate, where particular views or political...

Children from Low-Income Families: Education Support — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (30 Jun 2021)

Carol Monaghan: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I congratulate the hon. Member for Slough (Mr Dhesi) on securing today’s very important debate. I know that in parts of the UK children are still in school for another few weeks. In Scotland our children are already on summer holiday. Many of the issues we are discussing today apply not just to the UK but to the world at the...
