Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (13 Dec 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: I add my congratulations to the new Minister for Sport and welcome her to her place. I look forward to working with her. Moments of sporting history were made during the London Olympics, with billions of pounds invested in what was meant to be an everlasting legacy. Since 2016, 800 grass pitches have been sold off, 100 swimming pools have been drained, a dozen athletics tracks have been...

Exiting the European Union: Meaningful Vote (11 Dec 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: In pulling this vote, the Government continue to betray our children, our hospital patients and our much valued NHS workforce. The Prime Minister is running scared, unable to face a debate either in this House or on the television. Does my hon. Friend agree—

Exiting the European Union: Meaningful Vote (11 Dec 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: Will the right hon. Lady give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Nov 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: If what is being reported is correct, the Prime Minister is set on ploughing through with a Brexit deal that will be bad for our economy, bad for our jobs and bad for a hard-working people up and down this country. If she honestly believes that she commands the will of the people, will she put her Brexit deal to the people, either through a general election or, failing that, through a new...

Local Sporting Heroes (13 Nov 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Pritchard. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Blaenau Gwent (Nick Smith) for securing this important opportunity to discuss the role played by sporting heroes in our local communities. It will surprise no one to hear that as shadow Minister for Sport, I spend a lot of time thinking about the role that sportspeople play in our daily...

Local Sporting Heroes (13 Nov 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: I thank the hon. Gentleman for pointing out the dangers of mixing sweat and blood, and of sitting ringside. He sounds like a true sporting hero himself for being there and supporting his local club, which I am sure was very grateful. As we know from the contributions from my hon. Friend the Member for Scunthorpe (Nic Dakin) and the hon. Member for Paisley and Renfrewshire North (Gavin...

Gypsy and Traveller Communities (Housing, Planning and Education) (13 Nov 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Have you received any indication from the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs of whether he plans to make an oral statement on the forced repatriation of Rohingya refugees to Myanmar in less than 48 hours’ time? Last week, 4,355 Rohingya refugees were placed on a list for return without their consent, with repatriations due to commence...

Coalfield Areas: Sports Facilities (24 Oct 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Owen, for what I believe is the first time. I thank the hon. Member for Mansfield (Ben Bradley) for leading this debate. His constituency is directly affected by this important issue, which his predecessor was also concerned about. One in 11 people in the UK live in coalfield sites, and as many hon. Members will know, coalfield sites fall...

Universal Credit (17 Oct 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: Universal credit was rolled out in parts of Tooting a year ago, as it was in many other parts of the country, and the results have been devastating. That devastation is reflected not only in the number of weeks that people have waited for payments or the amount by which they will be worse off; the real devastation is in the damage that it is causing to people’s lives. I am going to share...

Organised Crime: Young People’s Safety — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Evans, and I thank my hon. Friend the Member for West Ham (Lyn Brown) for securing this important debate. It is a shame that more Members are not in Westminster Hall to reflect the severity of this issue, but that should not detract from how important it is. As my hon. Friend said earlier, local communities play a vital role in tackling...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Myanmar (4 Sep 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: A year ago, we began hearing first-hand accounts of the horrors taking place in Rakhine state. I travelled to the region as a doctor and am still haunted by my meetings with mothers who had to choose between rescuing their children from fires and running with the ones who were still alive. The military have now focused their attention on the Kachin in Myanmar. Can the Secretary of State tell...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Rohingya Refugees in Bangladesh (4 Jul 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: The Red Cross has announced that conditions are not ready for Rohingya refugees to return to Myanmar. This will be a protracted crisis, with up to 200,000 Rohingya being affected by the monsoon season. This was not a surprise. Where was the Government’s disaster relief plan?

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship again, Mr Paisley. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Easington (Grahame Morris) for initiating this debate. It has been heartbreaking to follow the ongoing situation in Gaza. Time after time, we have had the opportunity to ease people’s suffering around the world, yet in Gaza we have failed to do so. We are witnessing ongoing massacres...

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms McDonagh. I thank hon. Members on both sides of the House for their fantastic contributions to this important debate. I start by paying respect to the 96 fans who went to a football match but never came home after the tragic events at Hillsborough. I pay tribute to those hon. Members who have not only spoken today, but campaigned for...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Football Grounds: Safe Standing Areas (21 Jun 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the England team on their fantastic win in the World cup this week. I have met safety authorities, supporters’ groups, clubs and leagues, and they all have one thing in common: over the last three months, they have not heard from Government Ministers, which is why they are bemused at the rushed review announced more than two weeks ago....

Leaving the Eu: Customs (16 May 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: There is stalemate within the Cabinet. In the blue corner, we have the Prime Minister leading the charge for a substandard customs partnership; in the purple corner, we have arch-Brexiteers pushing for an economy-wrecking maximum facilitation scheme. Neither is workable, and they have both been rejected by the EU, so why are we even discussing them? We are told that a high-tech computerised...

Gaza Border Violence (15 May 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: Yesterday’s abhorrent massacre was a fire fuelled by a narcissistic American President who is content to watch the world burn. Never have I felt so strongly that he should not be allowed the visit the UK. If the planned trip goes ahead, I for one shall be joining the tens of thousands of people who will line the streets in protest. I implore the Government to cancel his visit.
